I would think there is a better chance than with Marvel Legends, and we've seen some of them.

Just buy it off from MikeS it would be cheaper

I've got mine on the way from MikeS, though I fully expect to see them on shelves here in Oz eventually. I bet the retail will be $35

I'll never pay a premium like that. I'd rather just go without. I've done my time giving money to scalpers. Never again.

Word. I have bought a total of zero SDCC Exclusives this year. There's no longer a "must have" for me if it means paying eBay scalper prices + shipping to Oz. :P

Got it for $150 with shipping Bobba Fett.Man, I am a sucker to these things but had to negotiate with the seller but at least its not $250-$300 price. If I do not like it ,I will sell it.Now,just the Thunderbolts set need to find a good price.

If you are going to sell, I'd do it quickly before a single carded Boba hits shelves. Everything I've heard is that it is the same figure.

I've hear folks say online they will wait for that rather than pay extra for the exclusive.

Thanks, I will do. I just hope Hasbro does not do what they did with the X-force Wolverine. They released it single carded but the quality and coloring is different.

Best 6-inch figures that I have seen this year, its like a Toybiz figure just need some improvement on head-sculpt. I would not take them out of the box, because they look good on it.


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"
Post by: Polarboy on August 11, 2013, 07:31:54 pm
I have decided against them thus far but If one day I happened across a Vader in a toy isle I don't know if my resolve would hold.


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"

That Sandtrooper is eye candy and so I bought another two...I would be buying more of these since the Stormtrooper would be plain white.

I just saw the wave 1 figures at a recent convention, but none actually made me whip out my wallet.

They were nice, but just not USD$50.00 nice, so I'd rather wait and see if they ever appear at regular stores.

R2D2 is on the way. Maul is a really great figure. I like Luke but I am going to be very selective in this line so I will wait for a black attire Luke. Same thing with the Sand Trooper even though it might be the best of the first four.

I'm holding off on Luke as well, at least until the Bespin version comes out in Wave 3.  It's hard to guage whether or not this line will last long enough to get four or five different incarnations of Luke, but based on the initial reception, I'm thinking it should have a pretty nice run.   This is especially fun for me as I have always passed on the traditional 3.5" SW figs.

I did pick up the other three though.  I love Imperial Troopers too much to pass on the Sandtrooper.  In fact, I may pick up another one if I run across it at retail.


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"
Post by: powersthatbe on September 11, 2013, 03:27:20 pm
series two is slated for november according to my preorder at bbts


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"
Post by: Gadabout on September 11, 2013, 04:15:18 pm
Same for Amazon.

I got R2 in the mail today from TRU. Very cool. Tough to pay $20 for an R2 figure, but they loaded him with accessories to try and make it premium. I will have more thoughts when I get it out of the package.

I collected the old smaller line like I am this one. Cherry pick the best versions of the main characters. I'll get Ben, Luke, Han, Chewie, and C3PO and if I can find a great Leia, her too. I have hated all of her smaller figures, and judging by that Slave Leia, they may have a tough time with this scale too. Oh and Darth, a few Storm Troopers (if possible) and Palpatine. And Boba Fett.

They have to improve on Leia's eyes.  Right?

Anyway, after holding out I broke down and got the first wave at retail, subsequent waves on order from MikeS.  My Star Warsian is a bit rusty, but is Luke sporting a DL-44?  Did he ever do that?

He uses a different, but similar looking blaster.

Wave 3

Anakin is rumored to be the 4th figure, but no pics yet that I know of. Also it looks like they skimped on the paint detail in the hair compared to Wave 1 Luke. I have an extra pilot Luke for a headswap, but I might have to break out the brushes on Kenobi. People are bitching about the inaccuracies of the Stormtrooper helmet, but it looks like a fucking Stormtrooper to me.  8)

Bummer that the Luke looks off.

Those Storm Troopers are going to be tough to find. I really want four of them but i bet it'll be tough to get them. There will probably be a thousand clone troopers at any given time though.

Don't care about the prequel figures.

I'm all for the prequel figures like Dooku and other Sith/Jedi (if they do Clone Wars as well), but yeah, I can't tell those clone troopers apart so I hope we don't get endless variants.

 [exactly]  I got R2 in from Mike a few days ago. He's so cool I just had to admire him in the box for a few days. I picked up an extra Luke earlier, & damn, they look great together! I was kinda miffed that the R2 saber hilt won't take a blade & has no hook tho. Would've been nice fodder.

As for Bespin Luke, his head has a manga/anime look almost, imho, while X-Wing Luke looks almost like realscan or some shit. Hopefully it (& Ben) looks better on the final
product. If not, that's exactly why I'll have an extra pilot Luke.  O0

Leia doesn't seem to be a bad sculpt, just bad paint. There was a pic comparing a before and after touch up and she looked pretty good in the latter.

Greedo rules. Might grab Artoo if I can find him around $15. Still want Han. And Vader better be perfect on the first fucking try because there is no way I am buying multiples of characters who had one key look. Still need Han.

Seems they want us to wait on The most popular versions of Luke (Farmboy and Jedi), so that might be the case for Chewie. But then they gave us a regular Han, so it is anybody's guess.

You will, of course, get the frost covered "Hoth Chewie" first.

But my brother works stock at Target so if I did want one I could get it.

Han is the best in the second wave. Greedo's only drawback is a lack of accessories.

There's a couple christmas presents sorted out.

Seems like it.  I'm not a "Bah, Humbug!" guy by any means, but because all five of us have fall birthdays, Oct through Dec is just a bundle of financial stress for me.  I know that's not what it's supposed to be about, but that's what we've made it into as a society, especially here in the States.

Just got R2-D2 for 9.99 off amazon.  Series 1 Luke and Maul were also 9.99 but I don't want them.

Just last night I got around to open my first 6-in. Sandtrooper. And 'tis a good one.

I will remain cautiously optimistic as I go through the rest of wave 1, since I foresee I will need to do something about the alignment of Maul's nose tattoos on one or both heads.

My boy got a really good end-of-year report, so I treated him with the R2D2 and Luke I picked up cheap from Amazon. SO much happiness (and I realised he liked them more than he let on when he saw mine  :-[).

Also, Greedo is $9 on Amazon right now.

So far of wave 2 I've only seen a Han in a Meijer and a Greedo at Target.  Really like Han but can't afford to get in the line at all.
Though that perspective may change when/if I see Boba.

Hmmm.

The thing that drew me towards collecting the Clone Wars line was that the figures were at the very least as articulated as the characters in the realistic line.

I don't feel I'll be getting the new SW: Rebels figures if they stick to just the 5 PoA, unless they go really cheap right from the start.

The casual buyer in the toy aisles (i.e., not a collector) doesn't have that same mentality though. They should be seeing Greedo and saying, "wow, that's a great looking action figure" (ch-ching), just the same as they see Leia and say "wow, what the fuck happened to her face?".

It's possible, but he looks very awkward doing it.  Not to mention how the rifle will bend.

Had no problems picking up the other six figures (should of pre ordered)

I have a feeling it's going to be a BITCH to find reasonable. I wanted two but will probably only be able to afford one because of crazy (awesome) people like my brothers girlfriends boss who builds entire movie scenes with his figures. I'd guess he has at least a couple hundred figures for the arrival of Palpatine on the deathstar.

Bastard!!  >:(

Just one of each for me especially if I'm gonna start adding speeder bikes and jabbas to the collection,I'm gonna need the space.
Anyhow my local comic shop has just knocked 50% of a life size Ralph mcquarrie vador mask and I'm fighting the urge not to pick it up...............this usually ends in failure. ;-)

Self restraint is not something we're known for.

When I was at SDCC in 2011, I spent about $1200 on back issues with about 30 mins left of the show. I just kept piling them up in a panic that I'd run out of time.

I still need to pick up Wave 2.  I've seen Leia (thanks but no), Greedo and rarely Han but keep putting it off.  Partially because I've still never seen Boba Fett, which puzzles me a bit because I had okay luck with the Sandtroopers.

Already had Han and didn't really want Obi-Wan, but I still bought the case because it was almost cheaper than hunting down the Stormtrooper and Luke separately. I an always display Han with both his belts. Obi-Meh-Kenobi is pretty disappointing.

Really wish Hasbro could have done us a favor and gave us two Stormies in Wave 3.

Yup, just 1. As far as I know all the figures in these waves have been 1 per case. Hard to believe based on how many X-Wing Lukes and R2s are still all over the pegs here.

yep. I have been watching Amazon closely for Storm Troopers, hoping to get two before the prices spiked. And they hit and immediately went to about 60 bucks. Fuck. I'm sure Luke will be the repeat figure as a top guy rather than the strom trooper who anyone in the hobby could tell would be the hot figure that would be impossible to get. They could do the ST three times and it'd still be in high demand.

I'm only after two as well. I just want them to flank behind Vader when he comes out. I may just bite the bullet and buy the second one at a premium and be done with hit.

Wait a while man. You never know. I saw two sand troopers while out today and they're pretty expensive too. I am patient when it comes to these things. If I can't get it for a reasonable price then Vader will be solo.

It's completely fucking mental.

The only hope we have is that Crapsbro wake up to themselves and if they insist on a 3 figure wave they rerelease the Stormtrooper in subsequent waves as fig 4.

I am starting to think that the 90's Star Wars are better to collect than the 6 inch version since you can army build and make displays of different ships but also cool dioramas.But also nearly every character is done even the obscure.

He's almost 21 now and most of that still applies at times.

For Christmas this year he spent a good chunk getting me that Boba Fett.

Totally worth it.

I need 14 more I will be happy...

My cousin had like 20 in the 1970's all in good condition...he had every Star Wars figure and he still got the boxes for every single of them. This is why I am thinking of collecting the power of the force in the 90's as it has cool playsets and every character is made but also I can amass storm-trooper armies.

The ML is dying out for me and MOTUC, I am just picking the characters that were released back in the 1980's.So I am focusing on Star Wars and I never opened them except for the 5 troopers.

I am offering $30 each for the trooper if you guys find a spare.

It would make sense for characters that size to be shipped 2 per pack, although Series 1 R2 kind of proves that people is not against spending that kind of money for a rather small figure.

No Chewie in the next wave:

1x SW 6 INCH BOBA FETT
1x SW 6 INCH EP4 STORMTROOPER
1x SW 6 INCH EPIII ANAKIN SKYWALKER
1x SW 6 INCH EPII CLONE TROOPER

Even with 50% re-releases, Anakin's still the weakest link.

Great that Boba and the Stormtrooper are getting a run again so quickly though. That's two waves in a row for Stormtroopers.

What is the difference between the Stormtrooper that is out now and an episode 4 one?

It looks the same from the picture. Hope thats the case.

Also hope a wave of two re-releases, even super popular ones, and two pre-quel ones don't hurt the line.

I must admit that Anakin looks like it might be cool even if I hated that douche bag who played him in the movies.

Missed out on a 6" Stormtrooper locally during the week.  My TRU stocked a case of wave 3, but I missed out on what I wanted.  Thankfully I decided to head out of town today and found one at the Lake Charles TRU, along with a WWE figure I haven't see here.

Nuthin'.

Hasbro is just dragging it out and failing to capitalise on the momentum. Listen to me bitch about it on ep 113 of the podcast.

Two new figures in wave 4 and I'm not even interested in Anakin. Hasbro was building the main cast with Han, Luke, Leia, R2 and this was a great opportunity to throw us a curveball like a Cantina alien, but instead we get more rereleases.


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"
Post by: Gadabout on April 20, 2014, 03:46:09 pm
Great choices for rereleases  though. Hioefulky this extra money in non tooled figures that will sell out willgo into  making Chewie huge.


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"
Post by: fishmilkshake on April 20, 2014, 05:09:25 pm
Apparently the folks in charge were not happy with the way Chewie was packaged "running man" styled, so they"re changing it so he was bumped from wave 4.

There's a good chance that saved us from getting a warped figure so I am very okay with that.

Vader was at Lexington Comic Con last month, I wanted to go just to meet him, but I had to go out of town, but a friend of mine who went said that he was screaming at anyone that was trying to take free pictures of him.  Even little kids. "I'M TRYING TO WORK OVER HERE!"

It surprises me that they haven't gone for the cheap and easiest "new" character with the least amount of work by releasing Wedge Antilles or Biggs Darklighter.  It's just a head-swap with the existing X-Wing Luke.  One body, no changes save a headsculpt and you get two new and fan-favorite characters.

It might be an easy multi-pack down the line.

Finally, a Yoda worth my money. Ive never found a smaller scale one ive wanted but this one looks great.

Ive decided against Jabba. If you've seen my star wars display with my R2D2 Xbox 360 thats almost a perfect tatooine set up for me with the smaller scale. And also, I learned with Fett and caronite Han that you can write off these sdcc exclusive items anyway

I have yet to buy one of these from a retail store, and have no intention of do so going forward.  If I did, I would be furious with the retarded distribution.  My WMs don't have them, and my Targets and TRU's could not possibly fit another on the shelves.  Leias and Hans everywhere!  Everytime I see these pegs, I love MikeS just a little bit more.   ;)

So, to completely undermine my previous post from July, I actually found some of these at retail.   [dunno]

Found my first Stormtrooper at a WM that didn't previously carry them....bringing my grand total to 2.   [moon]  I got a Jabba, which is a decent figure.  Not great, but decent.  The Biker Scout actually does look great, but I think i'm gonna save it for a rainy day.  If you asked me which was worse, the Jar Jar scenes or the Endor scenes, I would have a very hard time deciding.  I was gonna display the speeder anyway, but now I'm rethinking. 

And since a lot of ebay sellers seem determined to make no profit on Anakin, I got one of those as well.  Unfortunately, this is the worst figure in the line.....except maybe Leia.  It just doesn't look right.  And they really half assed the paint on the head.

I do. When I bought the new 4" one like 2 years ago it was like $15 at TRU and everything is overpriced there. How does 2" equal $25 extra dollars? Jabba with his the throne, Salacious Crumb, his pipe & bowl; and (I think) Oola was $30-40 as a Wal-Mart exclusive. Unless his accessories were hidden in the box, you get one rotocast figure for $40?? No thanks.

Yeah, I'm struggling with the Biker Scout too.  It's nicely done, but there's a lot of lines competing for a limited toy budget.  I buy a Biker Scout, and I'm done (or close to it) for that paycheck.  (If you think your kids are expensive now, wait until they're teenagers!).  I'd rather get two or three figures over the course of  that fortnight.

The Jabba with absolutely nothing else boggles my mind that it can sell at $40.  The Biker Scout is pushing it at that price range.  The Luke/Wampa and Han/Taun Taun seem like they'd be worth it though.

I'm finding this whole "walgreens" thing very, VERY annoying!  Most of them don't know fuck all about these supposed WIC numbers, and NO store in New Jersey has so much as sniffed a Venom or these Star Wars figs.  Venoms have been out for a fucking month now!  Getting old real fast.

Vader is pretty awesome, with one flaw that bothers me.  Maybe I'm spoiled, but I'm used to the Jedi/Sith figures having a spot to hook their lightsabers to when they aren't in use.  Might not bother you, but it's a nit I'll pick.  Everything else is pretty great.

Luke is mostly awesome, but there isn't much to be messed up.  With an all-black outfit, it's hard even for Hasbro to screw up the paint.  Luke's face isn't as scarred as it should be for "Jedi" Luke.  The saber looks great in one and two-handed poses.  The hilt feels a little flimsier than earlier lightsabers in this line, though.

There are about 10 Walgreen's in town and the immediate areas outside town, one of which I haven't checked yet but will this afternoon.  Only one has shown any evidence of these guys so far. I've got no idea about how often these guys restock/reorder, but I'll probably be hitting the one store every other day for a while.  Need that Chewie.

I found all four yesterday, but only because the little corner of the world where I live is geographically undesirable to the greater Jacksonville area.

In Jacksonville proper (where I work), it was a different story.  I knew I wasn't going to find anything up there when every Walgreens employee I spoke with on the phone or in person knew exactly what I was looking for.

Man it did suck having to leave the Wookie, tho. Luckily my boss at my part-time gig paid me early and I hurried to Walgreens & was able to score him today. Haven't opened him yet, but he looks awesome.

Lol. Seems like there are as many employees as there are customers in the local one. I looked around the toy aisle, but couldn't find a good spot. Now, if I can just score Boba.  [rock]

Chewie is massive. Never thought I'd see these in 1/12 so I'm loving it. With Classic DC & GI Joe dead in the water, it's nice to have these to look forward to.

I finally saw young Obi-Wan, so one of my local Target's finally got in Wave 3!  The rest just have Wave 2.  No sign of them at Walgreen's yet.  Apparently I'm behind, based on what other people are finding, ah well. 

Still, I can't figure out why Target would be getting in an exclusive (the Imperial Shadow Squadron Set) if they're barely even going to carry the line?

At first glance I thought that X-Wing was okay thinking that the R2-D2 figure could finally be placed in it. Then I realized they'd made it even worse, with no pilot hatch AND only half an R2 figure included. [dunno]

Checked 5 Walgreen's today and 4 of them had a shelf tag with no product for SW Black, so maybe it'll pop up. 

Meanwhile, I saw a ton more Greedo & slave Leia at TRU and a Target I usually don't check.

I'm so fucking done with this crap.

Went to the main Walgreens I've been casing out about noon, found a lone Boba Fett, the one figure I don't want. Keep in mind, I WAS JUST THERE LAST NIGHT. At like 9!

Then I went to another Walgreens, saw they were stocking the toy section, got excited, I asked an employee if they had any Star Wars stuff in there, he said that he just put those out last night and they barely made it to the shelf before they were gone. Fuck.

Third Walgreens, they had a spot for the figures but none on the shelf. Assuming I missed those too.

Fourth Walgreens, crappy toy selection, doubt I'll have luck there.

Fifth and Sixth Walgreens, nothing at either.

This is making me hate the hobby all together. I don't even want the stupid things anymore, I just want to not feel like I've wasted all this time for nothing. Lexington isn't that big of a city that these would fly off that quickly unless it was probably just one person buying them all. If it is, I hope they get gonorrhea.

Walgreens isn't receiving full cases of these figures. They are receiving 3-5 random figures thrown into a tote, so it would be very unlikely that you would come across Vader, Chewie, Luke, Sandy, and Fett all at the same store.

I'm all over the place on this line. One minute I love it and want to collect it, the next I have next to no interest. Multiple trips to Walgreens with no pay-out haven't helped, but I think it's because I've become bored since DCUC/DCIE ended and I just start buying figures for the hell of it. I used to love Star Wars so much as a kid, but I'm just not feeling it so much now. I wish Hasbro would get a clue and release a 6" GI Joe: ARAH line with the same detail they've given the SW Black Series.

I'm not getting the anger here.  If you all wanted the exclusive Fett and were having troubling finding him, I'd get the frustration.  But it sounds like you guys want Luke/Vader/Chewie which will be available in wide release.

I still haven't seen wave 4, so my hopes aren't high for finding Vader or Luke any time soon. This is the first time I've actually gone hunting for this series. Actually, first time I've been hunting in a long time. I hate hunting.

Calling any large store to see if they have stuff is pretty much a waste of time, with asking employees on the spot not much better. It's so rare for anyone to give you anything but disinformation.

Pay bananas, you get monkeys.

Oh, I'm stealing that line.

HTS discount code for 10% order: 10HTSDISC

So I ended up canceling my Speeder Bike pre-order on BBTS. They and the Jabba single are up on HTS now along with the Marvel/Avengers Infinite stuff.

I got Ant-Man and Ares with the Speeder Bike for the Free shipping and applied the code.

I believe Death's Head Infinite and 6' Black series Boba Fett were also in stock if anybody was still looking for either of those.

Success! Wanted to try the 3 stores in town that had them listed as In Stock on the site. First one had nothing on the shelves, but I asked for help and he said the only one they got in was Vader and someone was already in before me trying to find Fett. So I got Vader.

Store #2 had nothing and an employee asked if I wanted help, so I asked her about the figures and she said someone was already in earlier and bought the two they had gotten in. Gave the same response as everyone else talking about how popular these seem to be and how they get constant calls about them.

Store #3 had Luke and Vader on the shelf. Grabbed Luke and checked out, the manager immediately recognized me from last week, which I found funny.

Now I just need Chewie, but I got the two I wanted the most.

Only real gripes I have are Vaders knees and Luke's hilt being made of recycled Sour Patch Kids. Very happy with both.

I wonder if I could hollow out a hole in an extra R2 lightsaber hilt?

There's not much in the way of forward/back articulation on Chewie's neck, but his torso is sorta segmented (seems like it, anyway) where the 'layers' of fur are, so there's some play in the movement using that. 

Luke's sweet black robe arrived from the mysterious land of ebay.  Yeah, it's pretty long overall and at the sleeves, but I really like it.  Gonna get a brown one for Obi-Wan, maybe a couple more of each.  Very good quality.

I also think it's just become part of our lexicon. It's normal to 'hate' on it. It's like every sporting league has that one team that everyone 'hates', almost all don't know why, it's just the thing to do.

I called someone out the other day after they were ragging on Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I asked why they felt that way and they couldn't even orchestrate a decent argument. It's just the thing to do. All the cool kids react that way to it's mention and I don't want to be different.

Because they believe they can. But they have built it up in their mind to the point that nothing can ever live up.

Will Episode VII be as good as the OT? Probably not, but it'll still be a blockbuster. And with 100% less Rasta Frog, I'm sure it can't suck more.

I think we all spend too much time picking at these genre films. All the Star Wars movies are basically just way above average children's movies, and if not for their insane marketing success, would've been totally disposable to the mainstream. They would've been very influential to certain kinds of filmmakers, but other than that, the true fans could have them. We sort of had a time when the movies were like that before the figures came back. If you were an adolescent getting those 90's Topps cards or talking your mom and dad into an extra day at Disney World so you could ride Star Tours again, Star Wars was YOURS. Nobody gave a fuck anymore but you. If someone wanted to have a really serious conversation with you about the awfulness of Ewoks or something you would quickly tune them out so you could go try to track down the figures you missed at junk tables at the flea market and keep having fun. To me, Empire Strikes Back will always be the movie that made me a sad 4 year old, Return Of The Jedi made me a happy 5 year old, and no matter who conspires to make me feel differently about that...hey, you know what, let's get in depth like that on a movie for adults if we want to dissect a film.

The internet is like a bummer machine for malcontents. I had a friend who went from loving that last Indy movie to hating it. He saw it 4 times opening weekend and bought all these t-shirts and shit, and then six months later he called it "an abomination." An abomination! C'mon, man. You like it or you don't. Celebrate what you do and just move on past what you don't. Try making something yourself. Even if it sucks, you just did something productive, at least. Change the names a little and make the version you would've made. Start there. The 50 Shades Of Gray broad made a billion dollars doing that shit, she just rewrote Twilight with ballgags and assplay. Anything but just bitching about the shit for the rest of your life.

Be inspired or look elsewhere, you know?

Thanks! I honestly don't care too much for any Indy movies after the first one, which I love, but if I was going to watch a sequel deliberately it would be Crystal Skull, as I liked the 50's Rock & Roll element and old Indy all busted up but still trying to hump. There were a couple parts I liked, namely "You don't have to get sore all the time to prove how tough you are, kid" and the point where Mutt shows Indy the picture of young Mutt with his stepdad, and he's this adolescent dork. You really see how much his tough guy routine is an affectation...much as my own 50's greaser routine as a 90's teen was. I related to that character enough to get that Shia figure and paint his hair red.

I dunno. I can see that people on the jump on the band wagon of "it's a bad movie." And also on the flipside. But it's always appeared to me with Star Wars and Indy there's a section of fandom that just could or would never accept there's a bad movie even if it had the production values of Troll 2. They're the only genre films that I've seen where people complain when others don't like them. If you say Die Another Day or Alien Resurrection is shit that's fine. Put down KOTC or the Prequels and it's like you're insulting their childhood or something.

Well dude, in a way, you are. They loom large in people's lives and they want to enjoy them and accentuate the positive, and the one place that should be safe -in the comforting embrace of other geeks- turned bad. And stayed bad. It's one thing to say "Well, I don't like it" or even have some criticisms, it's another to have what we've had. There's no 15 part youtube video series about how much Die Another Day ruined someone's life. It went crazy and went on and on. And people changed their opinion because they gave in to peer pressure, and the little popcorn movies that they should've been celebrating just became points of depressing, obsessing contention.

I'll share my old "Fanboy A" and "Fanboy B." If you've read this one already, skip this paragraph. I was at my LCS years ago, where this dork was getting all worked up with excitement about Wrestlemania a few nights before. "And the Undertaker came back, and he's the Deadman again, and they had a screen behind him that looked like a city was on fire, and it was awesome. He's awesome, it was awesome." This shit really made this guy happy. And just like that, some other geek, who wasn't in the conversation at all, pipes up. "He's fat now, that hat looks stupid, he's too old, needs to retire, and that screen was fake." And the first guy, instead of fighting back, just caved. "Yeah, I guess it was lame." That shit happens every 5 seconds on the internet.

The Prequels collectively suck, despite the overall plot being good (it was the direction, characters, dialogue, and delivery that caused problems.)

I think it was a link you posted that directed me to Red Letter Media's Prequel reviews a while back. I LOVE those things. lol.

As for fans spirits being crushed by other people's opinions, they need to grow up. My wife ADORES Taker. I could call him fat, lazy, past his prime all day long. Don't matter. She still loves him. Hell I like him too.

I also really have come to like Alien 3. Shit horror movies like Thankskilling I own. You're right in that everywhere on the internet there's someplace you can go to find someone complaining about shit you love. But you can't look at it as them telling YOU that you shouldn't like it. Hell, I see a lot of the points they make on Red Letter Media about movies I really like. Doesn't mean I stop liking them. Some people's egos just can't take the fact that shit they like, isn't loved by everyone. But to me it means there opinion is bullshit anyway. Either you like something or you don't. What we or anyone else say should never enter into it.

And Blis, I bet you LOVED ToD when you were a kid. I never had a single friend growing up that hated that movie until the internet went and stepped on it. ;)

The Red Letter Media things are great partially because they don't just lampoon the prequels, they lampoon the people who compulsively rip at them, and a lot of people miss that, I think. Everybody says "It's just a movie" but it's clearly not, or else we wouldn't still be having this conversation all the time.

I'm guessing your wife has her shit together a whole lot better than the 'Taker mark who was at Comic Book World getting his shine on that Wednesday before some other nerd decided to shit in his hat. My point is, for me, I would rather put out the positive vibes than the negative, especially as sometimes the thing you're hating on may be just about all someone else has.

Jack, there are exactly two good parts in TOD. The dinner scene, and Mola Ram tearing out a man's still-beating heart. It was worth watching for those scenes alone.

But I never much cared for India's 'culture' so movies in that setting bore me. Same with any movie set in Mexico, to Mariachi music.

There are always exceptions, and even a bad movie often has its good points. I, for one loved Revenge of the Sith and after tie-in media fleshed it out, Attack of the Clones is redeemed somewhat.

Though, as I said, fanwankery abounds in the expanded universe, but fanwankery is really what fans want at this point.

Bringing it back to the toys though, there are already assholes asking for Double-Z-List characters in this line. I don't think we should get even the damn Cantina Aliens if they didn't speak, and these fuckers are begging for the Ice Cream Guy from ESB.

Honestly, SW 6" is something we have wanted for years, but we have to be choosier with them because of the cost. Do you REALLY want Wuher clogging pegs when it comes time to do Count Dooku, and you can't fucking find him because Target says they have 20 units on the pegs that ain't selling?

Leave the 'do everything that had a second of screentime (and a novel's worth of ridiculous fucking backstory)' to the 3.75" line, and stick to characters everybody knows, not the most obscure background shit nobody but the sweatiest fatasses crammed into Boba Fett Armor can name and give the entire history of.

"You know how I know those characters don't matter? Because if they did, the movies would be about THEM!"

I'm fine with the core cantina aliens. Sure, I don't want them at the expense of Sir Alec Kenobi or Disco Lando,  but not having them is the same as saying no to Tusken Raiders and dang if I don't want a bunch of them and an in scale Bantha.

Definitely agree with this. I'm only definitely buying Vader and Obi-Wan, but going past guys like Ponda Baba or Gamorrean Guard for $20 at retail to me is a mistake.

What they really should do is have a Subscription service to deal with the oddballs through Star Wars Insider or something. I'm sure there're enough fans who'd drop $30 a pop like MOTUC for the Hammerhead or Uncle Owen or Ree Yees.

That and stick variant heads with Snowspeeder Luke or Captain Piett at retail to help keep them off the pegs. Throw in an additional Biggs head (and helmet) with X-Wing Luke and you've just sold two to a lot of fans.

Next wave or 2 is Emperor, Yoda, Commander Cody, IG-88, the ridiculously awful Han AND fucking Luke in their Stormtrooper uniforms, and a Boosh Leia.  Why is Leia the only major character not to get a figure worth buying yet? 

In all my years, I have seen some really pegwarmy pegwarmers.  The massive release of the 6 inch Han, Superior Spider-Man, and the GOTG Iron Man are approaching JLU Kilowog status.  But Stormtrooper Han and Luke have the potential to really give new meaning to the phrase.  I would not take either one for free.  I would not take them if Hasbro gave ME $20 for them. 


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"

Post by: bigraj on October 08, 2014, 11:07:46 pm
Definitely want Palpatine and Yoda.  Will probably get IG-88, though I'd rather see Threepio getting a figure.  Don't really need Han and Luke in Trooper gear, but I suppose it is a way to get more Stormtroopers into the collection for army builders.  Can't tell from the pics, but hopefully Luke is appropriately short.  Can't say that Boushh Leia was high on my want list, but it looks much better than Slave Leia.  Don't really need Clone Troopers, but they look pretty good, too.

Palpatine was maybe my most wanted figure and they delivered... a massive turd. Why give him a fabric cloak (that's too short) if you're going to do a plastic skirt? Now you have a weird looking mix and he can't move his legs. Not even sure if he comes with a lightsaber. He needed lightning hands too.

I think there's no doubt that the black series will be TFA-heavy around the movie, but I'll bet it doesn't go entirely that route.  Hasbro has been good about Transformers movie toys dominating around movie times, but still throwing classic fans some bones.

The deluxe figures have been stagnant.  I can go grab a few dozen speeder bikes around town right now.  I think the price point is just too high.  The $20 figures can be stagnant, but not nearly as bad.  We'll see if the Wampa/Taun-Taun sets do any better.  They're frankly way more appealing than fat Jabba with zero accessories for as much as it cost to take my family out to dinner.

I was going to collect the line, and was happy after Wave 1 (though was still thinking of tracking down Boba w/Han in carbonite).  But my bad luck and the exclusives really extinguished my enthusiasm.  I kept hitting Walgreen's and when I finally, a couple weeks ago, spotted a fresh wave with Yoda, Tie-Fighter pilot, etc. then I guessed that I missed the exclusive there, and those were the first new single figures I'd seen since (part of) Wave 2. 

I guess the exclusives and rarity on some figures and sets is par for the course, but I really don't know that I want to have to order so much online.

I want the SDCC exclusives as I feel robbed not having hansicle and jabba's extras, but the price means they'll always be a no go for me as the prices are just too unreasonable.

Myer has Boba with the Hansicle. Saw it the other day. BBTS sold it as well - that's where I got mine. Reasonable prices.

I'm not paying more than $100 for it. Myer had it for $150 with a 20% discount at one stage and that's still too much.

My sympathies.  I suppose that if I really wanted them badly enough then I could put other stuff off and save up enough, but I think I ultimately don't (I do collect way too many things, from statues to books to graphic novels to tv and movies, etc.), and for me at least it's better to just put off buying anything past the Wave 1 I already have.  I do wish you luck in finding a reasonable price on them though.

Thanks again, I really appreciate the perspective. It sounds like some good advice and self-analysis really helped you too. 

Fortunately for me, after I finally cut off buying single issue comics (thanks again Marvel & DC!) then I was done with obsessing about variants (unless it was something I was a big fan of, and the variation was substantial enough).  For example, I'm not nearly as concerned with say the Imperial Shadow Squadron from Target as I think it's pretty much repaints and wasn't something I connected with.  But I figure that unless I stick with a very limited SW collection then I should include a Salacious Crumb, so maybe it's better just not to collect in the first place?  I don't know, I guess it's a personal thing, but I take care of my responsibilities and I'm not risking eviction or going hungry, so I guess it's manageable, but probably something I should keep aware of, and try to find ways to improve on.  Thanks again.

That's pretty cool, except for the $25 shipping to Oz. I was considering buying the legit set and making casts for people to offset the price, but a) I'm lazy and b) I don't want the Disney Legal Juggernaut after me.

Not to my knowledge. The Yoda and Tie-Pilot wave is the latest kicking around.

Hasbro loves a repaint

trying to think of easy repaints with what we got .

Wedge maybe ?
At At driver
Threepio Lando or Emperor will be the A- lister revealed

What have you guys heard about this line?  Heard that Hasbro is going to just be flooding the market with SW Episode 7 stuff starting 4th quarter, so won't be much of the "classic" stuff for awhile (I guess episodes 1 - 6 are classic now?).  (Didn't hear this from a rep or anyone like that).

I guess Star Wars Celebration next month will have all the reveals?

That wouldn't surprise me at all.  They barely showed any SW at TF this year.  So I expect SDCC to be very SW heavy with all the shit from the new movie.  As long as they don't completely ruin the 6 inch line....which they are trying very hard to do anyway.....then I don't care what they put out.  And hopefully the movie will be good and i'll actually want some of the new stuff.

I want them to get cranking out those cantina and Jabba's Palace aliens!

How about we draw the line at shit that only got a second of screen time? We still don't have characters who had speaking roles.

If you release all the main characters first, there won't be any strong anchors for future waves. At least the aliens are visually interesting and not the same old repaints.

If they go for the original Kenner cantina aliens, they would do quite well, I think. I'd sure buy Hammerhead, Walrus Man and Snaggletooth if done in the 6-inch line, and after that they could at least include one other alien from the other films in each wave.

I think they should release ONLY major and secondary characters. When we get to guys like the Ice Cream Guy from Empire, it's time to hang it up.

Seriously, I don't wanna see the Cantina band, Podracers, random Gungan #5, or even that Wolfman from the Cantina...Especially before we see Lando, or characters who are actually IMPORTANT.

I'm with Blis on this one.  If we can only get 1-2 new figures every 4 months we'll never have a chance to go deep with this line.  Having a new movie to base new figures on every year means fewer vintage figs.  Let's get the big guys done before the line ends/changes.

snaggletooth,walrusman and hammerhead are at least three aliens that should be made due that they were three of the first vintage twelve star wars figures ever produced.I would want an Ugnaught or two also.And this line is moving at such a slow pace,we should have gotten C3P0,Ep 4 Leia and Luke,Lando and sandpeople at least by now.

Snaggletooth, Walrusman, and Hammerhead were in the first 21 not the first 12.

The first twelve are Han, Luke, Chewie, Leia, Ben, Artoo, C-3PO, Vader, Stormtrooper, Jawa, Tusken Raider, Death Squad Commander.

Plastic is expensive man! Or so the toy companies keep telling us.

Unless you're buying anything else made out of plastic. I recently bought some of those big storage tubs and I decided to get the better quality ones and they were $23 each and I realised that's what a 6" fig goes for now.

Hasbro is really fucking this line up.  I don't believe that they have managed to have me buy only 1 figure from the last 2 waves, when there are literally hundreds of characters I would buy. 

Furthermore, I saw the new Death Star Lego set, and the Black Palpatine this weekend.  I find it quite pathetic that the Lego Emperor is literally ten times better than the 6 inch collector figure.  They could even be bothered to add a fucking lightsaber.  They better get their shit together soon and start making collector friendly decisions, or this line will be a complete waste.

I concur. This line has really stalled for me.

I know they need to reuse to save money, but slapping a different color on the Clone Trooper is not a way to win me over. Also, re-releasing figures in the slot of a future wave is not only a slot wasted, but it means people like MikeS get left with stuff.

So one of those Ipod Troopers went for over a grand.

Rumor is that it may be the SDCC Exclusive? Seems weird to have a Troop Builder as an exclusive, but it's based on the pictures that show special packaging that isn't quite the same as your standard Black Packaging.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Black-Series-2015-6-First-Order-Stormtrooper-New-and-Ready-to-Ship-/131531796689?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e9fe7f0d1&rmvSB=true (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Black-Series-2015-6-First-Order-Stormtrooper-New-and-Ready-to-Ship-/131531796689?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e9fe7f0d1&rmvSB=true)

I'm already sort of burnt out on this line, but who knows, maybe I'll get the spark again after SDCC or when those Deluxe things finally hit stores. (But with tons of Jabbas and Speeder Bikes sitting around, fat chance.)


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"

There's no way that an army builder like that won't get released at retail in standard packaging. Can't believe people are paying so much for it.

Another concern I have for episode 7, are slots in SWB used for Old Man Luke, Old Man Han and Pensioner Leia. I don't dislike the idea, but in no way do I want them at the expense of so many other figs.

Hopefully Hasbro are seeing the sales and realising that army builders are not lasting on pegs. Right now I need some old school love from this line. I want a Tusken Raider, Jawa 2-pack, Royal Guards, Hoth Troopers, more pilots with the possibility of a vehicle such as a Snowspeeder.

The fact that they'd give us something as awesome as a Tie-Fighter, but for a movie not out yet over one that we've known and loved for nearly forty years says a lot about how this line is stalling.

We get farmboy Luke, which is nice, but do we really need a fifth Luke when we haven't had so many other great characters?

They've got me contemplating if I even want to keep what I have, much less buy anything else.  The one thing that will kill a line for me quicker than anything else is general unevenness.  That's what's happening to me here.  Some of the figures are great, some of them are very disappointing, and some of them fall somewhere in between.

Plus, the character selection has been somewhat less than inspiring.  Most people I talk with want Episode IV-VI figures, so where are the Sandpeople, Jawas, etc?

Then there's the somewhat random use of soft goods...

I'm not really bitching as much as I'm lamenting what is rapidly becoming a missed opportunity.  There were some great ideas here, and even some great figures, but not what I was really hoping for overall which was a definitive 6" SW line.


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"
Post by: JerseyManiac! on July 12, 2015, 10:25:23 am
The only positive to come of out SDCC......we will get a Darth Reavan!

This line should have been the best.  It started so well, and was over by wave fucking 2! 

I'm sure NYCC will be all about SW for Hasbro, so I guess we'll have to see if the new movie will have good enough characters to keep it going.

There are so many army builders waiting to be done. You'd think they'd do one for every wave. When was the last time you saw a Stormtrooper warming the pegs?

We should have Sand People, Jawas, Snowtroopers, Emperor's Royal Guards, Hoth Rebel Troopers with swap out heads, Ugnauts, etc, etc.

I don't make a habit of it myself, but I get the appeal.  Bad guys tend to be under-represented in toy lines so if you're going to have your hero fight overwhelming odds, you need tons of foot soldiers to wade through.  Now, if you only have so much money and it's between a second foot soldier and a main character you don't have?  That's a no-brainer, you get the unique guy.  But I can say as a kid I had to have just Snake Eyes versus the entirety of my Cobra collection to show how bad ass he was.  He didn't need backup.  :D

Let me ask, why so much interest in characters we know nothing about? Stormtroopers I can understand, but these new characters are we've only seen a bit of and we don't know their personalities or overall places in a brand new chapter. Yes I remember being excited about my Boba Fett figure before he appeared in the movies but he looked damn cool and I knew he fit in with the toys I already had. When the Phantom Menace toys came out I looked at most of the characters and thought WTF is this? I felt no connection without knowing who they were and what they meant to the story. I got the preview Battle Droid because I thought it looked cool, but if I'd known how lame they'd be in the movie I wouldn't have gotten it!


Title: Re: Star Wars 6"
Post by: Chooch on September 28, 2015, 03:40:51 pm
We have reason to believe that the 6" figures so far are the main good/bad guys.  I think most folks are interested in getting the "essentials" whether they care for their personality or not.  A basic Finn is likely to be important to the story.  If it was Deep sea scuba Finn or Lava jet sled Rey it would be more dicey, but so far the 6" stuff hasn't ventured into that territory.  There's also the hope that this round will return us to the perceived glory of the OT.  I picked up the Transformers 4 movie toys with that hope - and had it dashed.  It's certainly a long-term gamble, but in the short term it feeds into the excitement.

I remember when I saw him I thought it was preposterous and nothing like that would work. Now for a hundred and fifty bucks I could own one. I don't know how to robots.

As for why buy characters we don't know?

Well, for me, I passed on the Gurdians of the Galaxy figures having a hunch I should grab them but not totally certain about the movie Then the movie hit and I regretted not getting them since Rocket was selling for 60 bucks. Eventually got them all but it was sketchy for a while.

This is Star Wars. There is almost no way I won't like at least some aspects of these characters. If they are totally ruined in the movies, the expanded stories will add to them at some point. I am getting the main ones. All of wave one. Out of wave two, if I can find a Poe that doesn't look like an inbred drunk, I'll grab it. I'll grab Phasma. I may get that red guard looking character. Fuck that squishy weirdo though.

Got in some and already moved them out, will be getting in some more at some point.  Right now Phasma is a $70 or so figure, so no surprise she's selling out and it's the one figure you can't get.  I'm sure supply will start catching up to demand soon....

Or a first.  ;)

Now that I have Phasma, I'll have to get about 2 FO Troopers to flank her.  Spotted the FO Snowtroopers at TRU over the weekend and will probably grab one of them pretty soon, as well.  Very nice looking.

Saw the FO Tie Fighter for the 6" Black Series and was very impressed.  Of course, I have no room for it and $170 is more than I'm willing to spend (though I would probably drop $150 for Vader's TIE).  I hope it sells pretty well, so we can get more vehicles for the line.

Jabba with zero accessories out of the gate did them in, I feel.  Granted, they probably wouldn't have gotten too deep with that price point, but even on extreme sale I can't bring myself to buy that lump.  If they had led with the HanTaun instead I think they would have done much better.

I believe it generates an electric forcefield, that repels the blade, so the lightsaber never actually contacts the baton.

I got five, but I didn't want to get more FT than I had Snowtroopers. If I had more regular Stormtroopers I'd consider more of the other two. But for now, it's four troopers and one Sarge.

Something for everyone really, but for me it's gotta be the Tusken Raider and Emperor's Royal Guard.....on the heels of the Snowtrooper, Old Obi-Wan and AT-AT Driver.

....and since I'm a self entitled fanboy who can never be pleased, I'm disappointed there's no follow up vehicles such as the Snowspeeder or Landspeeder.

Looks like with the 4" stuff they released a lot of the less desirable characters/versions first again. [gah] Think too many people got burned buying Constable Zuvios and Sarco Planks last time around. There was a ton of everything, 6" included at every store we stopped at yesterday.

I think that is pretty much what happened, after last year's fiasco. Here in Mexico city the only product out were LEGO and no store made much of a show for Rogue Friday, except for WalMart.mx  and amazon.mx.

And then again, the only items they seemed to run out of were the usual 6" trooper/droid types.

I found the Wal-Mart Exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper (no markings) today.   Also, Hasbro's doing a SurveyMonkey.  Log in and tell them we're not interested in price hikes:

How much did they ask you you'd pay for Bespin Han?  One time it asked if I'd pay $25, another $20.  They also asked if I'd pay an extra $5 for soft goods once and more accessories once.

I'm really enjoying the line. Because I enjoyed Rogue One, I'm fine with the recent wave, but I want them to complete the core characters now. Of course the release of the classic Snowtrooper and AT-AT Driver has me really pumped for more of the same.

I'd seriously dig Doctor Aphra, BT, 0-0-0 and Black Krrsantan as a wave too.

The Jaina Solo figure looks absolutely beautiful. That said, I absolutely hate the idea they are giving her a spot in this line.

I for one, was glad they excised most of the EU when Disney took over, as most of the books published that deal with post-Thrawn era events devolved into little more than fan-fiction, in my opinion.

Still, the doll looks good, and I will probably get it if it becomes easily available, but I don't plan on devoting much effort on that.

It's a double edged sword for me. I love the idea of giving someone like Thrawn a figure, but do I want that at the expense of an Ugnaut? I have to say yeah, as much as I want 6" versions of all the figs I loved as a kid, I'm not as attached to say, FX-7 the medical droid over a Doctor Aphra.

Picked up 40th Leia at Walgreens today. She & Luke were in the clearance section. The manager scanned it & it rang up regular price. He said since it was in the clearance section he'd sell it for half price. Done deal.  O0  I've seen the Juggernaut wave there do the same thing. Never went out with the other legends. Straight to clearance for 4.99 when the wave first hit. Just wish they'd get more stuff, lol.

Single carded unfortunately.

I'd really like Hasblow to release three packs of army builders. I don't care if the price is the same as three singles, just make it easier to acquire more than a single army builder at a time.

At my bricks and mortar places, there's clearly a collector who raids the pegs and if I don't beat them there, then every army builder is gone. I was lucky to get a single Deathtrooper.

What's worse, the AT-AT Driver series hit a cheap store here and they're going for about US$12 each. They're being snapped up and 'offered' on FB pages with mark-ups to "cover my time and fuel, etc" and of course assholes are paying the ransom. One guy, known for this subtle form of scalping offered up a Revan and said to make it fair he'd auction it....and it goes for US$60. So of course this will just spur him on.

Machine Man is a great figure of a great character. The problem is 1) nobody knows who he is, and 2) it's a rather boring design.

Like, as a fan, I geeked right the fuck out. I wanted him from the start.

But I still cherry pick legends so he was always back burnered.

Until Thursday, that is, when I found one on clearance at Walmart for $3.

Today (during daylights hours) I've been to 3 Targets, 1 TRU, 1 Wal-Mart, and 2 Gamestops.  Also 2 Walgreens, but I was looking for Minimates.

1 Target had a Luke and a few Executioners.  Another had a Rey.  Third had nada.

Wal-Mart had nada.

TRU had Kylo, and all of Wave 2 except the Praetorian Guard.  They were also the only place I saw the Landspeeder.  No Rey Speeder though.  There was a tag for the Ackbar 2-Pack, but didn't see any.

The Gamestops looked like they'd never heard of Star Wars.  Just some clearance merch over a year old.

I'm sooooooooooo glad for MikeS.  Trying to buy things at retail is for sucks.

I feel ya. 

Been looking for Duke and Reaper to complete Rookie.  Found Batman, TV Atom, and Batwing two weeks ago on a business trip through a very small town which does have a Wal-Mart.  Said town is about 125 miles away.  I live in a large suburban area with a total population topping out at over a million people.  Adding the rural areas inland and in North Carolina and the entire region tops out at about 2 million.  Williamsburg VA  to Ocracoke NC.  There are over a dozen Wal-Marts I can get to in less than a half an hour.  I've not even found remnants locally.  Not even a stray Atom.  Nothing.  Frustrating doesn't begin to describe it. 

Back to Star Wars.  Which I don't even have a small dog in that fight.  I've heard that Force Friday has been a major clusterfuck.  Especially where Pops are concerned.  No less than ten different exclusives.  Sounds like a nightmare.

Yes, it did indeed suck a sour frog's ass.

Looks like Target, Kmart and Big W (Walmart) here have pretty much quit. TRU were the only ones who bothered and seemed to get most everything.

Managed to find remnants at a Target and a Walmart on Saturday morning.  Picked up the two I wanted most (Hera and Thrawn), but didn't see the new Luke or Rey.  Saw a few Stormtroopers and a Vader.  Does anyone know if the Vader in the Black Series packaging (#43) is the same as the 40th Anniversary figure?

I believe it is.

Hit my TRU two days after Force Friday and the shelves have been cleaned out. All that's left is Rey's Speeder and those diorama thingies.

Having non-buyers remorse for passing up a few older figures I told myself I didn't need at the time like Bespin Luke, Bossk, and IG-88. Naturally they're quite pricey on the after market. I hope Hasbro does another vintage wave. An ESB themed one would work quite well for my personal needs.


Title: Re: Star Wars Black 6"
Post by: fishmilkshake on January 21, 2018, 08:10:53 pm
Yeah, I think Hasbro are pretty clever in knowing what people want. They've snuck the original Stormtrooper back into a wave so I imagine they'll get to guys like the Bounty Hunters again even if it's a 4-pack of the most popular, etc.

And possibly Jar Jar screaming "WEESA FREE!"

For the record, I don't intend on ruining a perfectly fine Obi Wan and doing this. I'd much rather wait it out and hope we get a Sebastian Shaw version down the line.

Hopefully Yoda is penciled in, he DID just appear as a ghost in Last Jedi

So new announcements were Tobias Beckett (from Solo), Admiral Holdo, and Hoth Leia.  All pretty solid or expected.

The fun guys are in the exclusives though:

Gamorrean Guard (Target)
Zuckuss (TRU)
Mimban Trooper (Walmart)
Commander Wolfe (Gamestop)
Dirty R2-D2 and some other astromechs (Amazon)

Okay, maybe I do need them.
Okay, need is a strong word, but the collector in me wants them for some reason.
Okay, so maybe I'm a little addicted.

Got the Dewback for my birthday.  Not only do I now realize 41 years later the name sounds slightly racist, but given their flat teeth they must be herbivores.  Makes sense.  Carnivore mounts are probably a bad idea.  A fun toy and a decent size I wouldn't want to get much bigger.  TRU had the First Order Tie for 50% off, but I couldn't pull the trigger.  Where would I keep the thing?

I found the Guard over the weekend.  I haven't had the chance to open him yet, but at $30, a 50% mark up, Hasbro is clearly testing what we're willing to pay.  I get that he has better paint ops and is a unique sculpt, but a unique sculpt isn't really cause for a mark-up.

I was somewhat taken aback when I realized the Gamorrean was priced similar to the non-convention Jabba, or the Hoth beasties. I was expecting it to cost the same as any other 6" character, but i guess this scale goes by with a completely different set of rules.

Just picked up Zuckuss at the Disney Store in the mall by work.  They were behind the counter.  Like opiods.  My wife saying this is an addiction doesn't add up.

Grabbed Zuckuss yesterday. Now I'm really getting impatient for Dengar. But what will I do when I have all of them? My life will be without purpose

Although there's still plenty of cool figures announced so far. And they still have yet to announce Dooku who will undoubtedly be amazing.

If you had asked me which Bounty Hunter would be released last I would not have guessed Dengar.

I was thinking the same thing....but then I remembered back to being a kid and how much I enjoyed the whacky denizens of the Cantina. We need way more character to keep Greedo company.

Looking over these fan-vote lists, they're really running out of viable options for the 6" line.

id compare the list to the vintage line up,what has been made already in 6 inch and what hasn't, and finish there up there like General Calrissian,Hammerhead,Bib Fortuna,Weequay,Klaatu,Ugnauts etc.

If anybody spots Mace in the wild, I'd gladly pay cost + shipping or trade you something nice.  ;D

Scored Bossk at a salvage store for $8 and picked up young Han & Inferno Squad trooper for $5 each at GameStop the other day.  [rock]

The exclusives are driving me crazy. I can scarcely keep up with who's got what?
