Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: April 27, 2014, 03:49 AM »
Okay, can someone clarify something for me - is ALL EU considered out?

I took StarWars.com's press release to mean that anything post-ROTJ was out. However, I'm seeing on different sites (especially JTA's reports) and from different interpretations people saying that all EU is dead. So I'm not sure exactly what's going on.

Or a lot of other random important people.

Like maybe Savage or Maul? ::)

I think it'll be very appropriate if the last episodes in the line-up are part of the Sifo-Dyas arc - ending the show with how the whole conflict started.

Scored Mace Windu today at the… Disney Store... :-X

He seems kinda Sithy with those yellow eyes that for some reason Hasbro went with, and then of course there's the whole missing decals on his gauntlets…

It's a good figure, but it really feels lacking as a realistic interpretation of the TCW version; it doesn't have that oomph that the Anakin, Obi and Ahsoka figures had. The packaging makes no mention of TCW, the pictures are from Ep.II… Oh, well. At least we got the figure.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2014

Does anyone who reads/keeps up with JTA notice their TF coverage article stating that the EU is dead and we'll be getting 0.00 products from that era anymore?

Considering most of what I buy anymore is from the EU, this is very, very bad news. In fact, hasn't Star Wars as a franchise survived because of the EU? Especially merchandising-wise? Hell, the TCW figure line is an example. Plus, it gives you kind of an image of how Disney is directing "Star Wars" these days.

I heard/read that Jabba was a SDCC exclusive? Any confirmations on this theory?

Lord Almighty, that Vader……..





(BTW, his crotch guard is incorrectly over his inner robe. Not sure if that'll be fixed since it looks like the guard and belt are one piece :D)

Really great news. It's just too bad they never completed/started work on the final Maul arc. Well, at least we'll be getting his story through the comic book and the final episodes in some form - I have to say putting them on Netflix is pretty appropriate and not fan-crushing, IMO.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

The latest bit to surface this week is that Abrams and Lucasfilm are now searching for a 20-something female actress who is either of mixed race or black. The rumor is that Obi-Wan Kenobi had a daughter or granddaughter.

PLOT TWIST, Duchess Satine from TCW and Obi had a love child. ;D

Jk, that'd be funny, though. Gotta say I'm loving all these bits and pieces of news we're getting.

For me this is great news (being that I loved Maul's return, despite how ridiculous it sounded), but the biggest defeat for me will come around the time that I open those comic pages and imagine how every scene from those panels would have looked like in cartoon form on TV - I was practically sh***ing my pants during the Sidious vs. Maul & Savage duel, and now we're gonna miss out on what's practically going to be the biggest, most epic conclusion to TCW on TV? It just downright sucks. I can't even believe they wouldn't even make this a direct-to-DVD release, I mean, this is Darth freaking Maul!!!! We all know this guy HAS TO die at the end of the arc, right? I'm just in such disbelief by all of this.

Received Plagueis in the mail after nearly a month of waiting from Hasbro ::)

Wow. What a great figure - the sculpting and paint apps really are on par with this guy and it totally gets me into his character. Gotta love that absurdly detailed angry 'ol Muun face, too.

Scored Plagueis on Hasbro!!!! It's funny cuz I was on eBay earlier seeing what the going rate for him was but then I saw on JTA that he was in stock! With the discount code, this feels like a total win.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2

Just snapped this pic on the way out the door.  I'm not really seeing what you mean about Boba Fett.  He's shorter as he should be and the scale is right on IMO. 

Thanks for the pic, that really helps! I think it's just the way my figures are posed. IMO, Boba is way bulkier than Maul, but I can see now how Han and Boba are pretty much the same height.

I was lucky enough to order Boba on Amazon for $22 (instead of the $40 rate like he is now) when they had him back in stock in limited amounts before Black Friday. Just got him in the mail and man oh man is this figure great.

However, I've noticed he's all kinds prone-looking to breakage - my sample has really stiff joints that make a noticeable sound whenever I move his right arm and left ankle. It kinda reminds me of how when I ordered Maul from Amazon and he came with a dislocating left knee. It's funny because there's all sorts of reports of how people have had 6" figure parts break on them (an article comes to mind of when someone's Greedo snapped at the ankle joint). Considering the price on these guys, this shouldn't be happening.

One last thing, and I know it may be too early to tell because we haven't gotten that many figures yet, but does anyone think Hasbro's scaling of these figures is just radically different through each character? For example, the Luke seems tiny to Maul, who's tiny compared to Han. The Sandtrooper towers over them, yet the Boba is WAAAY huger than any of the figures. Idk, it just seems weird that the heights don't seem very consistent.

Of course the Sandie would still be full price, of all the Wave 1 figures. The only figure I've grabbed thus far from this line is Darth Maul (you can obviously tell which era of Star Wars I grew up in, lol) and my little brother recently got the Sandtrooper. I was futzing around with it a little and came to the conclusion that I really wanna buy this guy now.
