The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 5

Holy ****...Ree Yees?! I'm psyched. And I haven't been psyched about SW for a long time.

The Y-Wing and B-Wing are my two biggest wants for an upgrade, now that I finally have Slave-1. I'm generally okay with the larger sized X-Wings we have, as they are still way ahead of the POTF2 version.

I'd love to see them tool up a Z-95 Headhunter though. Hell, I wish they had used them in the prequels.

Interesting about the wings snagging into place. I've been unable to get mine to do so. Seemed like I was going to break it. I'll have to try it again when I get home.

The trick is you have to rotate both at the same time.

I actually replaced the spring, but the wings were too wobbly, so I put the original spring back in. It's pretty easy to get it to click in place, and it stays in flight mode much better. Maybe I was just lucky with mine.

Do you think the droid factory set will be sent with packing tape around all six figures with the shipping label pasted to the back of one of the figures?

I think if they are sent individually with a mailing label stuck to the back they would qualify for postcard shipping rates.  I expect to see six tracking numbers for my order.

At first I read this quickly and thought you ordered six Slave-1's...I'll admit, I was a little jealous!  ;)

I tweeted some pics of the Jungle Disguise Dutch:  https://twitter.com/jmaquila

Nice! I just followed you on Twitter. My username is @MisterSkeezler

Shipping and spring issues aside, this thing is a really, really welcome addition to my collection. I'm a bit giddy about it. I'm actually planning to do some paint weathering to it.

Wow, that sucks. I hope they resolve it for you quickly.

I received my Slave-1 today, but it arrived thrown in a box with some stuff my wife ordered for our daughter. The package was still slightly damaged, but I'm an opener, so it happened to work out for me. The toy itself was fine...aside from the wing situation.

Who approved this at Hasbro? I find it a bit discouraging that these shipped out without working correctly. I guess I have to locate some pen springs and take this sucker apart tomorrow. I'm glad to have an ESB Slave-1, but I hate having to correct faulty toy design.

Yeesh...I'm going to pissed if that's how mine arrives.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: 2013 Star Wars Evolution Set
« on: August 11, 2013, 10:49 AM »
I'd much rather buy an evolution pack featuring troopers...

Rebel: Fleet Trooper, Hoth Trooper, Endor Trooper (maybe a tech, officer or pilot if they need a fourth)

Imperial: Stormtrooper, Sandtrooper (or naval trooper), Snowtrooper, Biker Scout

Also, why have they never tried evolution packs with the main characters (aside from Darth)?

Han: ANH outfit, Bespin, Carbonite block (or pre-carbon freeze), ROTJ

Leia: Much-needed ANH resculpt, Bespin escape, Boussh resculpt, Endor battle

Luke: ANH (resurgence sculpt), Pilot, Dagobah training, Final battle (with flap down)

Can't tell if you're joking but I don't think that's out of the realm of possibility in the near future.  Or something similar.

I'm happier and happier each day to be a customizer.

Good call on going with an older Lita pic, not current...  current, bit of a mess.

I figured going all the way back the Runaways would be too far. And now...not so much.

13
Is it just me or does the latest pic of Mara Jade look like Lita Ford with red hair?

She's a little overdressed for Lita Ford...and doesn't rock as much.


14
I'm definitely a little biased on these guys, as Ree Yees has always been one of my favorite characters (for some reason), and I'd like to be able to have Tessek and Yakface be able to sit in my diorama.

15
God...I can't wait for a new Ree Yees, Tessek and Yakface.
