Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Simpsons: The TV Show
« on: September 1, 2014, 05:44 AM »
Yep. I was watching the Marathon for the first weekend and then gave up after around Season 12. The stuff from 2001 onward is bad, bad, bad, though to be fair I don't think I've seen anything after 2007.

There's just something slightly comforting about knowing the Simpsons is on TV though. My local stations dropped it years ago in favor of Big Bang Theory, which is a rant in itself.

Hackgate 2014!

A guy from 4chan apparently hacked into Apple's iCloud and is slowly releasing a bunch of celebrity nudes. Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton have been the biggest drops so far and apparently there are many, many more.

It's like looking at a car crash, I know it's bad and I should feel bad but dammit I'm gonna look.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Upcoming Black Series figures?
« on: August 26, 2014, 12:03 AM »
"Pegwarming" at my stores in Austin:

- Target: Most stores have nothing. The ones that do have 2 Greedos, a Leia and a Han. You can occasionally find an Obi-Wan or a Bespin Luke if they've gotten a new case, and an occasional 3.75 inch figure
- Wal-Mart: All they sell anymore are toy lightsabers, but some stores still have TVC TPM figures with almost 3 years of dust
- TRU: See Target, except they have 10 3.75 inch Biggs figures

The last 2-3 years have really put 2002-2005 to shame

I spend too much time playing Simpsons Tapped Out and Family Guy Quest for Stuff as it is... I shudder to think about a Star Wars mobile game :-X

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Robot Chicken settled the Empire stuff in a sketch that I can't find on YouTube right now. The remaining officers got together and declared that the Emperor was dead, so the fighting HAD to end by the laws of sci-fi. Then they all go to get massages.

The Bullpen / Re: 2011/2012 Marvel Legends
« on: August 21, 2014, 01:08 PM »
I picked up my first 6 inch figure today, Carnage from the ASM2 line. I had been debating buying some Marvel stuff to go along with the upcoming Batman: TAS line and finally found a Carnage on the pegs. I just hope this doesn't avalanche into me buying a bunch of the 6 inch Star Wars stuff.

Yeah, my local Targets get a single case of 6 inch figs about once a month and sell through pretty quickly. They haven't stocked TBS 4 inch since they got one or two cases of Wave 3 maybe back in February or March. Our TRU isn't much better.

I haven't even been inside a Wal-Mart in ages. Apparently all they stock now are the kiddie accessories (masks, lightsabers, etc) for every toy line.

My local Targets should think about actually stocking figures before they consider raising prices.

LEGO / Re: Recent Acquisitions

Yeah, I'm sitting on $20 worth of rewards from over the last year or so. My goal is to bump that total to around $50 and put it towards either the Ewok Village or the Sandcrawler.

Pete, if you can, try to hold out another month for those larger sets. Rumor is LEGO Shop is doing a 3x VIP Promotion in the first half of October. I'm planning on getting the Cantina and either the AT-AT or the Star Destroyer then.

I put together the new Snowspeeder the other day, fun little set. Not worth $30 though.

I had to sign for $60 worth of t-shirts I had delivered a few weeks back, but that was a package from Japan and they have wacky shipping/delivery laws there. No clue why Hasbro would want a signature. If it's because of size, why didn't we have to sign for those ridiculous Death Star and Indiana Jones sets from a few years ago.

I agree. Hasbro is so concerned about cutting costs, if they were going to go with a plastic kama, why not cut back the ball jointed legs and ankles?

Figure looks nice from the waist up though.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Hero Series X-Wing
« on: August 14, 2014, 07:44 AM »
I too spotted this at Target the other morning, it was just lumped in with those 20 inch figures (Vader and Chewie). Bet that will cause some fun if they ever stock enough of that stuff to let it get disorganized for the holidays. Like everyone else, I passed.

That guy sounds like a tool. Is he the same guy who used to post on Rebelscum and then got a big head because he was hired to draw a lame comic on starwars.com?

Rumored Spring 2015 Lineup

Microfighters:
- ARC-170 Starfighter
- Vulture Droid
- Snowspeeder
- AT-AT
- Republic Gunship
- Homing Spider Droid

System Sets:
- Geonosis Troopers
- Shadow Troopers
- AAT
- T-16 Skyhopper

Rebels Sets:
- Imperial Troop Transport
- Ezra’s Speeder Bike
- TIE Advanced Prototype
- AT-DP
- Wookiee Gunship

I'm digging this lineup, only one official OT set, which gives me more time to pick up the OT heavy lineup just released. I'll probably buy a bunch of the Imperial Troop Transport sets.
