TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Coming Fall 2014

Yeah, that is a very concerted, calculated plan to launch the new show.  To be honest, I'm happy to see that sort of aggressive marketing stance.

I've checked a couple of Walgreens stores, but no sign of the exclusive Tyrion.

They look like ducks.

Why would there be stormtroopers anyway? I thought the Empire was destroyed. Are we talking about a hold out faction near a certain black hole maw facility?

I think if you're looking JUST at the movies, it's likely that Coruscant was still a major Imperial stronghold.  And that's despite the little add-on scene from the end of ROTJ.

And with these possible looks for Han Solo being revealed, it opens up that old question:  blue or brown?!?!?!

That from a programmer who couldn't work a printer.  Samir....Na... Na... Not gonna work here anymore!

Yes.  Complete with that rich, Corellian leather!

Collect All 92! / Re: Klaatu (in Skiff Outfit)
« on: August 13, 2014, 10:05 AM »
Looking at some of the recent Skiff Guards and Jabba's henchmen, yeah, this Klaatu is due for an update.  The POTF2 figure has to date back to what, 1998?  I agree that I'd like to see some new, previously unmade goons first.  But this figure could stand to be updated.  But I think those big, blousy pants might present a challenge for knee articulation.

And it's great to have Collect All 92 back, Scott!!!

It's an interesting design, FWIW.  I'd actually been seeing rumblings that the new Stormtrooper design might actually be more in line with the original McQuarrie design.  Tom's sketch seems like it has hints of that as well as being a sleeker evolution of the OT Stormtrooper helmet.

Anyone have a handy list of how many times they've done the Snowtrooper Commander/Officer over the years?  I know there's been...

- 2003 Saga 03-19
- 2006 Saga-011
- 2007 30AC ESB Tin (Saga 03-19 with removable helmet)
- 2014 Black Series Wave 5

Am I forgetting any?

There was one in the Target Exclusive Ultimate Battle Pack (second from the right)

Damn.  I never realized there were quite so many variations to those particular figures.  Thanks for the comparison shot, Jay.

Robin Williams was a brilliant comedian and a great actor.  His comedy came across as a total stream of consciousness thing, as if he had done too much blow and everything just came spilling out of him.  And it was only later on that I learned that he was Julliard trained.  His work with Jonathan Winters was beyond brilliant.

It seems that some of these guys who are so filled with joy and brilliance are also filled with equal amounts of darkness.  And it seems really sad that his peaks and valleys were so extreme.  Rest in peace.

I definitely enjoy some Shark Week.  But the fake documentaries get to be a bit much.  I expect shows on Discovery to be about something REAL.  When they ran the fake documentary about Megalodon last year I was a bit put off.  This year's doc on the "Submarine" shark from South Africa could've been totally interesting if it had just been based completely in reality.  But again they went with another fake documentary.  Not cool.

Strange.  Amazon is listing these as arriving the 2nd week of September.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Hero Series X-Wing

So I saw the Hero Series X-Wing yesterday.  And true to form, it is absolutely ENORMOUS.  Personally, I'd like it better if it integrated with the 3.75" figure system, but that would probably drive up the price significantly.  Seeing it in person left me thinking that something like this would look good suspended from the ceiling, and that was the extent of it.

Picked up the Biker Scout deluxe set today. It looks really sharp, and I'm genuinely impressed by how good it looks. As for unboxing it ?  That's probably going to have to wait a little while.

I saw a photo of this X-Wing on the shelf at a Target store, and OMG!!!  This thing takes up an enormous amount of shelf space, and goes about 2 feet up the pegboard wall.  Translation?  It's eating up peg-space for figures.  To which I say...
