I got my tickets for the Thursday night show - officially excited!

I decided I'm going to try and hit the trifecta with this flick like I did with Pacific Rim: 2D, 3D, IMAX.

Apparently they posted something on Facebook to the effect that they were regretful about not making it out to SDCC this year but to look out for some kind of announcement about the Smaug set later this year.  ::)

There has been a lot of online venom spewed at TBD, and while I certainly understand it, I'm not ready to pile on just yet and declare the line totally dead. I guess I just hate the thought of what could have been...

The fact that they have Beorn, The Bard, and the rest of the Dwarves already sculpted makes me think these could still make it out some way, in some form one day.

Nothing up on their site yet, no placeholders or anything...

It is, I never watch it live because it airs at the same time as "Falling Skies"...all 3 episodes should be available now.

del Toro is like the Official Mark of Quality to me, i generally love anything he is associated with.

So jealous! That's amazing....I went out searching for these today but there are none in stock yet anywhere locally based on the dpci look-up.

Anyone else enjoying "The Strain" on FX? Damn, this show is so good!

Maybe screen accurate was the wrong phrase...

More technically accurate?

No, i think you were right the first time. Brian Flynn said this himself over at RS.

Dang, I need that Predator figure too.

The actor who was cast as the High Sparrow was JUST ON GoT last season in a totally different role though wasn't he? Doesn't that seem confusing?

Wasn't he the dude the Hound killed who proclaimed "Dying's thirsty work!"

Yeah, I pretty much knew it was going to be different, that's why I wanted the SDCC one so bad, more movie-faithful, IMHO.

I have been researching this, and I believe I have concluded that there are at least SIX (6) different blind bagged "mystery figures":

Kane - Spacesuit
Kane - Chestburster
Ripley - Spacesuit
Ripley - Plain
Alien - Plain
Alien - Clear

The Aliens were clearly shortpacked because there are almost none of them for sale on eBay right now, plenty of the other guys though. I believe I got the Ripley Spacesuit and Chestburster Kane in my preorders.

So not easy to be a completist with this line, but it's great stuff IMO.

According to JTA's Hasbro Q&A, ANH Leia is coming in this line...hopefully long after her previous version has sold through.

According to JTA's Q&A, the rumored Mission Series 2-pack with Ahsoka and Anakin has been cancelled.  :(

This had the potential to be pretty cool, little disappointed on this...

I love the shadow stuff. I'm in for a few of these.

Me too! 

I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but if they have to do mix in repaints I am happy enough they went with these.

I still wonder if C-3PO will end up being the jedi-Con exclusive and maybe they stick the Emperor in this slot instead? It seems crazy to release a main character as an exclusive, but they could always go the Boba Fett route I guess and throw in some extra swag before the inevitable mainline release.

Thanks a lot brother, I was able to score one of these on the way home from work today! He definitely looks cool,  looking forward to trying out the glowing feature tonight. I was hoping for more of a traditional fluorescent green rather than the blue accents, but I guess blue fits better with the character.
