The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Upcoming Black Series figures?
« on: July 22, 2014, 11:36 PM »
That's another figure with some army-building potential. Too bad we'll never get a ride for 'em.

Heck yes! As soon as I heard this would be featured on the show I wanted one. Great news, would be cool if it came with some electronics as a nod to the vintage version but I'm not holding my breath.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!

Yeah, I do get that, it's not an arbitrary dislike for either of those products, I just wish they were placed elsewhere on the toy aisles where they are not competing for peg space with the action figures. I think Hasbro sees it as a chance to increase their real estate, but all too often it seems like the 3 and 3/4" stuff feels the pinch.

And yeah, the SW army men analogy is probably better, now that I recall those early Command photos, moreso than the 2" GOTG figures. Still seems like something that is destined for 5 Below but I won't begrudge them their chance to try.

I just want them to crank up making action figures again for Pete's sake!  :D

That seems unnecessarily confusing, but this IS Hasbro we are talking about, so who knows.

Yeah, i saw a ton of that 2" crud among those listings, as if Angry Birds and Fighter Pods weren't big enough space-wasters.

If the sales of the GOTG 2" figs are any indication, this Command line is already in trouble. (Cause who doesn't want to buy their kids tiny toys that are easy to lose, vacuum up and choke on?)

Saw this morning that the Class I vehicles will be making a return this Fall. Great news, because these were some of the coolest sets Hasbro ever did for the Clone Wars. I hope we get quite a few for Rebels too. I always felt like these were a better value somehow too...esp with the extra figure added.

According to Walgreens, this is due to arrive 9/2.

I predict this will be the next new 6" figure anyone finds in a store. Which means we will be getting Vader, Jedi Luke, and the Black Pauldron Sandtrooper before Anakin and the Clone Trooper, which should have been out months ago.  ::)

So what was the "Big Announcement" they were teasing?

I went ahead and ordered Scunner off TRU.com, not sure how long it will be til these show up around here. There was some other stuff I needed so I ended up getting free shipping at least.

Looking forward to getting my hands on the upcoming SDCC Exclusive Jaeger set!

My bad...sorry, was looking at an earlier post I had made. It was actually March. I guess a more accurate statement would be we've only had 1 wave of new figures this year.

For some reason it does feel like longer than that.

I had to go back and check...I scored the whole Stormtrooper wave on November 8th LAST YEAR.

That's going on NINE MONTHS now with no new figures in circulation. That can't have been their intention right? What a wasted year this has been so far...

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends Figures
« on: July 16, 2014, 08:39 PM »
Technically all of these figures are "Saga Legends". I think the carded samples for Vader and Snowtrooper are errors as they should only have the Star Wars logo at the top and not the SWR.

Ok, I assume the logo branding will be corrected at some point then. I do get that it's technically one line in 2 different flavors. Fine with me, as long as they slap "Rebels" on the Rebels stuff so I know what to buy, LOL.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Thor (Movie & Sequels)

I wonder how Gina Carano would look as a blonde.

She will make a kick-ass Avengelyne I know that.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends Figures

So are Darth Vader and the Snowtrooper part of the Rebels line or not? They lack the titular branding but are apparently sourced to the movies on the cardback?

Great to see carded images though, have kinda been wondering why these haven't started popping up from the China eBay sellers yet, they have to have shipped out from the factories by now.

Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines
« on: July 14, 2014, 05:07 PM »
Hmm, that's cool of them, but it won't be exactly the same as the first edition. And the packaging looks different too. I do applaud them for acknowledging their audience though.

Hopefully this helps to bring the price down on the SDCC sets too.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: July 13, 2014, 08:49 PM »
Yeah, the problem with making wild underwear claims is that it's just too easy to fall short of that mark and then look silly.  :P

Mosep does seem like a cool choice, but outside of that it's not a whole lot that blows the mind.

Did we really need another TCW-themed Anakin? I don't see how this merits a slot, even if just a repack. There's really not a lot of new territory to mine there outside of the Zygerian Slaver outfit, which is waaay to much to hope for at this point.

I guess Wolffe will be based on his later Clone Wars appearances?
