I have 2 Snowie Commanders, 2 Farrs, 1 Luke, 1 Yoda, and I believe that's it, on the way.

I also have a complete set sans Dak coming from my local bud, so I have a pretty nice little group.  Plus I have 2 of each of the Goons coming once Sept. gets here I guess.

I'll second that...  If you wanted mint, why didn't you order from EE or BBTS?

You buy Amazon, you get Amazon.  I'm not a carded guy so I'm maybe not being very thoughtful, but I am an "I'm tired of paying so much for figures" guy, and I'd rather not see the $35 nets you free shipping deal go away on "collectibles" or something.  I just want to open the stuff and get a reasonable price.

That ones a tough pill but I seriously think I will preorder.

I want the Mk2 but the inability to pick your deco detail scares me on the purchase.  I want the rocket girl not the other one. :(

I watched the first two episodes of that and am not sure I wanna get back into it.  I was getting honestly po'd at some of the people's behavior on the show.  Not annoyed, but like wanting to punch someone for being such a jagoff.

Enjoyed the trailer as well...  Saw some hyping about Glenn's scene but didn't really see it as what the hyping was about when you slowed it all down.

Lotta spoilers in that trailer though.  A lot.

Hasbro just knows good taste when they read it I guess. :)

Vintage Kenner / Re: History of vinyl cape Jawa
« on: July 30, 2014, 06:32 PM »
We actually didn't have red, just the blue one...  I didn't know about the red one till I was at a cub scout den meeting at my buddy's place and he had the red one.

I never knew about Vinyl Caped Jawa till I started collecting Star Wars as a teenager in the 90's before the modern line.  When I started getting Toy Shop weekly then I learned about the line's variations from dealers.  First place I ever saw Brian's Toys ads.

I always hated Greedo because he reminded me of broccoli for some reason...  just as an aside.

Scott has some info that is pertinent to that point somewhere.  :-X

This wave's at my buddy's that we split a case from EE...  I'm anxious just to have new toys, but this wave knocked out (theoretically) some figures I really was anxious to get before the line implodes.  A posable Dagobah Luke has probably been a top 3 ESB want for myself for a bit.

Yoda, I'll deal with the TVC Yoda in the pack ultimately I think.  Perhaps a little gear exchange.  I'm very dejected though, that they allowed that figure to get so shoddy in terms of articulation.  $10 it is not.  I'd actually say I get more annoyed with that as time rolls along.

I've heard the TBS head swaps to the TVC body pretty well, which is articulated more than enough to suit me ultimately.  I actually thought the TVC head looked pretty good in its own right though, and perhaps TBS's gear will swap to it nicely.   :-\

Luke is just, to me anyway, the articulated one that I wished the OTC one was.  I'll buy several Lukes to display in several poses ultimately. 

The Farr and Snowie COmmander are ok.  The Commander's a little bit of a miff with the plastic skirt making his leg articulation pointless though, so I can see customizing one of mine to have a cloth skirt piece...  Why they'd not go that route is beyond me when the best Snowtrooper they've done has the skirt.

I'm fine with no removable helmet on him too...  It's a neat feature on the TVC Snowtrooper but minor.  Most of my Stormtroopers don't have it.

The Dak figure, while people hate him for some odd reason, he's a great army builder.  I'd probably take a dozen more of him honestly.  He headswaps nicely with the Fleet trooper style heads iirc (Hoth Rebels, Naboo Pilots, Death Star Trooper, Needa, etc.), so I guess I do a lot of mix/match of the heads anyway.  I even whipped up a Keyan Farlander Hoth Pilot.  Pretty neat IMO since he's kind of all over the place (though ironically probably not at Hoth).

It's as solid a wave as Hasbro's made in a while it feels like, and I've not had a new figure to mess with since 2013 plopped Wave 3 out before Xmas (seriously).  So I'm pretty happy.  It looks far more interesting than the non-pant-defiling stuff revealed at SDCC...  which I liked, but it's a bit of a yawner compared to Wave 4 I think.

We'll see what Toy Fair tickles us with.

Thanks a lot!  ::)

It may tip the scales on me buying one, unfortunately.

The order time for the base was extended 5 days.  So now more time to mull one over.  Ugh.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series 2015 Wave 1

PT and CW may be last hurrah'd in general.  I'd say OT's a lot of 2015 (We'll see come Toy Fair).  It's definitely on their radar (they said as much) in the build-up to Episode VII...  The PT and CW are a lot less on their radar, since they'd rather lead up to the new movies with the movies that actually lead up to them.

Kind of how Hasbro seemed to try tying ANH to the new trilogy in the build-up to 99's line.  It makes sense to want to give the focus to the trilogy that leads into the new one though if you can, like this series.

Bought the BR's so the kids should be stoked. 

Loved the trailer but knowing what's coming, it's kind of odd having it as one movie.  It'll have a weird pace to it I think.

I believe the cape's hinged, actually, to flop over the left arm kinda.  Just a guess though.

I totally brainfarted on this line...  Wish there was something about getting out the rest of the dwarves and maybe Bard in the 3.75" scale.   :-\
