We'll have a brief write-up from Darth_Anton at SDCC regarding the Aliens APC they're working on...  The enthusiasm the company's representatives showed, and the way they engaged fans visiting their booth, is impressive.  Stay tuned for it to be posted to the front page later this week!

There's more updates coming to our image galleries... 

As I've said in past years, I really want to thank Darth_Anton for his hard work on this.  Plus, Anton got a Q&A in with Hasbro and they were pretty candid on some topics this year.  3.75" SA is far from dead to them, I'll say that.  But you'll have to stay tuned for the REST they were willing to share. ;)

But Anthony takes a TON of time out of his OWN time at this show, which is big, difficult to navigate, and increasingly complex to get into year in and year out.  He tries to help everyone get exclusives they want, me included on that list, and he's generous with his time and takes incredible photography (and even takes it in such a way I have minimal editing work to do!  Thank you for that!!!!!  lol).

He hits up everything we hope our fans/readers are interested in, and does his best even when the subject matter isn't up his alley.  He engages Hasbro professionally and respectfully, but asks them things that maybe are uncomfortable topics.  He's a great friend to have cover this show for us every year.

Again, keep your eyes on our galleries.  More updates incoming.  Between all our work and life schedules it's not always easy to do things quickly, but things are getting posted and we're happy to have the show covered once again! :)

You won't be disappointed.  The Skeleton is still a bit of an action figure marvel to me.  So intricately well done/designed.  I'm amazed they squeezed out the articulation they did.

I'm ok with that I guess?  I mean, hey, I'm ok with any of this crap for the most part...  I feel like I'm on an EU roller coaster ride at this point.  And I fully expect some downs to the ups on that ride.

So hey, whatever.

I want an all Bossk movie though.  They should do that.  "Bossk & Friends" or something.

Bet she didn't see that coming.

Their power loader is between $84 and $100-ish and so I'm assuming the APC won't be cheap.  We have more Hiya News in store too.  Ant got some time with their reps.

Yeah I hope that is a fan trailer, hehe.  That space ship scene looked like it was out of Wing Commander.  :-X

Voyager was eh.  I'm a Defiant guy myself.  The Enterprise E was interesting too, and had that DS9 Dominion War vibe to it.  I agree this has a Klingon look to it.

Yeah, OT fans have to be happy here and make the Jaina pick, for whatever reason she made it, not matter that much.  Still a lot of OT goodness coming.

The AT-ACT is definitely an interesting toy...  Much more "fun" to my eye than the Falcon was last year.  I think this is a great idea though.  Having it actually walk, interactive with a smart phone...  These are definitely good ideas.

It's smaller than the BAT-AT was, so there's bound to be some pissed folks, and NERF or nothing will piss of some people.  It's a toy though, meant to be a toy, and played with, and I'm just shocked they didn't incorporate NERF stuff earlier to be honest.  It's a huge toy line for them.

I agree on SDCC this year Darby, that it was a generally better one than last year.  They touched on SA 3.75" which they basically wouldn't last year.  They touched on being aware of distribution issues...  That's all you can hope for at a thing like this.

Where they end up with that, who knows, but they have a nice smattering of "everything" and at least they DID touch on 3.75" SA too, so you got a little for everyone there.

Again, the big reveal was clearly (for them anyway) the AT-ACT, but the online community probably poo poo'd it some.  To me it's a cool toy idea.  Once I see one in action, if it works well I may actually pick that up.  A walking AT-AT is cool no matter what.

This isn't Neca, this is Hiya, so 4" scale not 7" or whatever goofy scale Neca does...  They're like not quite 6" I've heard.  Cool looking.

This is much more up my alley.  And I mix it with Star Wars...  The Aliens are always running around kickin stormtrooper ass.

Hiya's 4" scale APC is winning the day at SDCC.

Our initial Acid Rain gallery is up and they didn't bring nearly as many prototypes with them this year.  They brought some samples of the new figures though...  Droids and other stuff.  They have a prototype of a variant of the MkI Speeder too which would probably be lower on my personal priority list.  They also have the Rescue Laurel variant pegged for next year which is kinda cool.

And the AMM exclusive figure is selling out every day and I'd say quantities are limited at this point for each day, which totally blows goats. :(

I can't say I care...  I'm sure there's some kind of pimping of this there, at the show, but ultimately it's all 6" so it's off my radar regardless.  Maybe it was tampered with, maybe it's just that final push like at election polls as the hour grows late.  Whatever, it's done, we're getting a ton of the OT stuff people wanted just by the presentation so if Jaina gets made, more power to...  uh...  whoever? 

Jacen not being made would be kinda dumb now, but hey, cool. :)

The AT-ACT "Pilot" appears to be the tanker in the hatch of the hover tank thing in the trailer...  Imperial "Tanker"?  I dunno.
