The Original Trilogy / ANH - The Medal Ceremony - As it REALLY happened
« on: September 15, 2014, 12:49 PM »
For years there have been stories about the filming of the medal ceremony scene from A NEW HOPE.  Grousing extras taking pot shots at the stars as they walked towards the dais, etc.   Well, check THIS OUT!  It's almost like being on the set.

I saw some of these in TRU yesterday.  But what I found were both versions of Snake Plisken from Escape from New York and a couple of different Terminator figures.  I had no idea ReAction was doing these, too.

Saw some of wave 4 today, too. Since I already split a case and got the set I just picked up another Snowtrooper Commander.

Are they flying drones over the film location to get some of these photos?

Picked up the exclusive King's Hand Tyrion today along with the wave 1 Danaerys.  Dany was the last figure from wave 1 that I still needed.  And at $16 and change a piece I thought it was a decent buy.

Looks like some of these have popped up on HTS.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

I've been checking stores in my area over the past week plus.  No sign of Proto-Boba or ANY TBS 6" figures.  I get the feeling that these might be creeping out slowly across the country.

That's pretty awesome.  I'm still wondering when we might see some sort of a trailer.  Especially after the buzz following the SDCC panel.  Are we really going to have to wait until Christmas time?

Travel Channel has been going downhill ever since Anthony Bourdain jumped ship.  And Toy Hunter was interesting to me, but definitely very niche in terms of appeal.

...and Bronn.

Cliegg Lars is definitely one of the standouts.  In terms of the importance of the character to the plot and the sheer amount of dialogue he has, Cliegg is a solid candidate for a figure.

Aside from that?  I think more arena Jedi would be reasonable choices.  And I'd personally like to see some more characters from the Outlander nightclub.  But I think AOTC is pretty low on the priority list for Hasbro these days.

The separatists are dull, they've knocked out damn near every Jedi human I can think of now...  That one guy that tosses a saber to Kenobi/Ani is still noticeably absent I guess. 

Actually, the two Jedi who toss the lightsabers in the Arena battle have been done.  Nicannas Tassu was done in the Target exclusive Arena 2-packs.  And Sephjet Josall was done in the TRU exclusive Arena multipacks.

A whopping ONE figure comes off of my 2013 list in the form of Sephjet Josall.  So my list remains largely the same.

1 - JK Burtola (Bear Clan member with dialogue on left)

2 - Rogwa Wodrata

3 - Senator Amidala - Palpatine's office (Loyalist Dress)

4 - Senator Toonbuck Toora

5 - Kalyn Farnmir - Outlander nightclub patron

6 - COO-2180 cook droid

7 - Cliegg Lars

8 - Sar Labooda

9 - Dexter Jettster (SA)

10 - Lumas Etima

I love the fact that Joan Rivers would never, EVER apologize for a joke.  She'll be missed for that.

Finally saw the Walgreens exclusive Tyrion. It looks like they're actually somewhat plentiful.  Oddly enough, I was in a rush when I was in Walgreens so I didn't have a chance to pick it up.  But the thing is, it seems like THIS Tyrion probably should have been the general release version.  It's much truer to Tyrion as he appears in 90% of the series.

Call me old fashioned, but it feels kinda rape-y to be looking at stolen nudes.

Same here. The women who got targeted are really hot. And if they chose to put pics like those out there on their own I'd definitely want to check them out. But the way these have come out just comes across like a great big creeper fest.
