Droid Factory 2013 / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = NOT Dead in 2015?
« on: May 22, 2015, 12:22 AM »
Yeah, I'd have run...  actually, I did.  I saw these, twice, at my local Go! store and yeah...  Nothing in me would've bought them.  Though they sold out, both times.  I know who bought them and he's flipping them on Ebay with some semi-shady listing wording ("rare", "cancelled", etc.) to make a buck.  It's his side business, in the same mall, so whatever, but yeah...

I was really hoping for $5 TIE Pilots.  Little did I know.  :o

I should've shopped around checking prices on other stuff at the store.  They had a lot of toys but I didn't think to check what they cost before I left.

I get the archiving thing Jayson, it is what it is...  To be complete, all that.  And I even understand if a carded guy wanted these because everyone collects differently, and completeness means a lot (even more so to carded guys in my experience).  But I can't see even a carded guy assigning them any kind of "praise" I guess, is what I'm saying.  They'd be a horse pill someone had to choke down for the sake of completeness...  Or in your case, the sake of the site.  You'd have to really REALLY be into that cardback to try convincing people the purchase you made was a wise one if it weren't more a "necessity", ya know?

If anything, I think praising them at the $20 price is kind of like saying, "I accept $20 for repaints/repacks as a great idea!", which seems like a bad stance to take.

I'm kind of in awe that some sites are gushing about these and how "cool" they are...  Weren't the figures on the TBS cards cool though?  And we got the BAD's, soooooo...  I don't get it?  ???

If you're that bonered up about the cardback I suppose, but it's nothing that special so I'm kinda confused why anyone would praise a $20 basic figure, at all.  :-\  Not to mention most of these were repaints.

Interesting to note his feet are white but the Disney droids are not iirc.

Someone missed a dose.  :-\

Go! also sells toys and other stuff...  Some are strictly calendars only though from what I've seen, and pop up at holidays I think.  But like the one at my local mall is a toy store more than a calendar store, actually.  They have SW figures as far back as TVC cardbacks and some Funko stuff, Legos, etc.  Prices blow.  They make KB look like bargain basement.

Yes thank you Paul, for the assist on this one.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Wampa and Hoth Luke
« on: May 18, 2015, 08:47 PM »
Depends how accurate you want things to be I guess, but a 6" Wampa would be significantly larger in such a small scale than a 4" Wampa...  When you get into scale at that size, small things make big differences.  Like speederbikes, or snowspeeders, for instance.  Some folks didn't mind the vintage molds on those, but the reality, especially to people who pay close attention to scale, is that they were grossly oversized.

The Wampa would be kind of a similar thing.  Some people may not care, but if scale matters to you, it'll be noticeable.

I was working on one...  It's a fair bit it you squeeze wave 2 and 3 into one wave.  Basically as much new as wave 1 had.  That powder blue R7 or whatever it is has no matching body.  Weird.

Some I'd put in the "just enough difference to make you mad" column from some parts in wave 1 also.

I love the orange parts and the white r2 w/red details dome.

A "plain" (more or less) R3 is highly appreciated too.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: A Game of Thrones (HBO)

I'm with you Mike, this show's been filled with what I ultimately think of as worse, if we're rating things...  Rape's actually pretty frequently mentioned, implied, and outright shown at various points in the show.  I guess I was figuring this was somewhat inevitable really, since she was dumped at Winterfell and left to marry one of the craziest characters left on the show (at the moment).

Littlefinger never has all his cards on the table.  While Sansa's fate had to be understood, I'm not so sure he's abandoning her completely.  At least I don't feel that way yet.  He's easily one of my favorite characters because of his complexity.

I want to kick Cersie in the vagina.

I can't blame Tommen so much...  He's a child, and truly a child unlike his brother.  He's really just a kid stuck in all of the mess.  He's probably thinking he'll fix it later.

I hate the religious zealots now too...  such dickholes.

Can't say I feel bad for a guy spending $7k on a modern anything really...  This kinda poop happens.

Yeah, got the news on price and just laughed...  $20/per.  I knew that store was pricey but yeesh.  I almost thought it was mislabeled, but nope.  There are two reseller stores in the mall that had these, and the figures are still there.  Testament to how priced out they are.

Weird though that they surfaced at all.  Just odd.

Unfortunately my friend is there, but it's hectic.  And now the Wave 3 ones are out?  Ugh.

I want those orange astromechs BAD!  Love the deco.

And Ahsoka's droid too.

Wish I could go, but just not in the budget these days for a big vacation like that, but man SWW looks fun even without the droids.

Not winning a cup will hurt his legacy, but he's also not done by any means so you move onto next year and wish.  He remarkably improved his 2-way game this year.  I think that helped him and outside opinion of him overall this year.

Ugh.  Good lord.
