Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases
« on: Today at 01:54 AM »
Oofah Jason, that's some steep pricing on some ultimately crummy stuff.  If Hasbro bumps pricing on 5 POA to now articulated pricing, I'd imagine that's not going to go over well at the checkout line for them.

I don't buy the 5 POA much at this point, but I wouldn't buy it at all at those prices.  The quality just isn't there for it.

It's barely there on the articulated stuff most of the time, to justify a purchase.

Hasbro should've called all those silver Star Wars figures, "liquid metal".  Just cooler sounding.

Half of it. :(  Slept through the first half.

The Pens are getting #TheSlap'd these days, so I maybe would've gotten #TheSlap'd by the security at the arena had I gone anyway.   ::)

Weird designs...  Love the Stormtrooper's bulk.  Kind of reminds me of the Clone Commando armor, a little bit.  Or something TOR-ish.

Well, ultimately missed the game...  Not that it was overly memorable anyway.  Diane went with a friend instead.  I, on the other hand, had (have) pneumonia (not bronchitis) and was chilling at home.

Which was for the best I guess, but still annoyed I dropped all that on the game, then of course that week, I'm sick.

Me as well Paul, I'd like one.  And thank you very much!

I'm just hopeful I can get one, somehow.  It's a slick color/deco...  Definitely one I want on my shelf.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Disneyland Exclusive R2-D60

Disneyland appears to be getting an exclusive repaint of the Build-A-Droid R2 mold, as R2-D60...  celebrating 60 years of the park.

Caught this on Yakface...

Soooooo, yeah, I want one of those.  :-\  Phruby, you busy? :P

I dig the deco...  All blue R2-D2, more or less.  It's a neat variant.  $12.95...  Not a bad price, but limited to 6000 which seems awful low.

I think if anything Darryl/Aaron would want to recon the group in daylight, just to see what's what.

And yeah, Aaron had a listening device in the car.  That was what made even Michonne question her decision to trust him before they went zombie mowing.

I'm not overly hopeful for them going to 2007-levels for the line overall...  Hitting SA sometimes, not always, and sometimes not at all.

The toon is completed and given sound, though no voice acting which it really needs IMO.

The fun part though?  This was asked about via Q&A/focus group things by Lucasfilm...  Could anyone possibly have rated it negatively?  I think not!

Was going through, buttloads of aurabesh eastereggs...  Right down to the writing on controls on the fighter like on/off being marked, min/max, etc.  The Destroyer in the animation is the Violent (the lead one with the blonde officer in the brown uni).  I'm assuming that anyway, as that's the one the probot contacts about the Alliance Fleet.

This simple toon makes me want to even build custom stuff...  Like the droid.  I'm very tempted to make a light-up 3-eye R5.

The destroyer that lines up to the left is the "Exterminator".

The "briefing room" is actually the briefing room from TIE Fighter too, nice.  Also the datapad the briefing officer has, is the datapads that are in the game as well.

TIE Fighter Squadron Sigma is one of the squads.  All the other squads are Alpha, Gamma, etc.  Always greek designations, just as in the game.

The TIE's shield/hull sensor, to the left (ship silhouette with "rings" outward) is all unlit, just as it should be since a TIE isn't shielded.

The Interdictor Cruiser is the "Inhibitor"...  Also, fun note, the tactics in the toon are even logical ones like in the game...  The Alliance fighters are blatantly targeting the Interdictor Cruiser and little else, simply so the fleet they're protecting can hyper out.

The TIE Bomber is painfully slow and I loved that they showed that.

The primary target is the Frigate which is designated FRG (just as it should be), with the corvettes secondary targets (CRV designations).  The details on the tactical board kind of blow my mind, actually.  This guy sure as hell liked TIE Fighter/X-Wing as much as I did!

When the TIE is engaging the Rebel fighters, the brackets and aurabesh light up around all the ships red/green/blue indicating their status as Rebel, Imperial, or neutral...  Also it is the holographic heads up display system that X-Wing and TIE games introduced so that the dated graphics of the 70's made sense to a more modern system...  IE: basically your helmet's locked into your ship's computer and puts a HUD up for you to monitor sensors and ship targeting things, all of which aren't seen in the movies since they'd be distracting.  It was always a neat little "excuse" I enjoyed that made sense. :)

And the cherry on top, easily, is the alarm going off for the one TIE pilot, as he's being locked on by a Rebel trying to use his warheads on him.  I love it!

Yeah, probably just packaging things, but hey you never know.

There are certain iconic things they're going to definitely want to carry around, film to film, and cash in on.

I had a similar thought on Rick/Pete fight but it seems like he was losing at times, and I can't see him letting it get that close is all.  He should've just beat Pete solidly, IMO.  They could've shown him struggle to not kill him a number of ways.  Have Pete come at rick with a shard of the window even?  Make him out to be even more or a dillhole.  I just hated him having any real one on one advantage.  Drives me batty.  Guy beat Shane!  And that was a long time ago when Rick wasn't as hardened.

I'm curious how the finale will set up next season.  It's gonna be interesting for sure.  I figured they'd have established the new threat more by now honestly.

In a world where you can't go to WM and buy more, you always have an ammo shortage.  Unless they have someone there capable of reloading, it is always a waste.  Especially the larger caliber stuff.  .22 shells may be ok to piss away some and pick off zombies long range but I think I'd want a stockpile of the big stuff for bigger problems.  Like people.

Interesting list...  I wouldn't panic on TBS 4" just yet.  I have a feeling there is more news to come on that front.

The vehicles were intriguing.  3 price points seems ambitious.  Assuming $30 is just the old $19.99 decent ships we used to receive.  I was hoping 5 POA would see a price drop too but that appears to not be happening.
