The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014
« on: October 10, 2014, 10:31 AM »
I read the Q&A session from Imperial Shipyards, and Hasbro said that the 6" C-3PO was being delayed by some challenges with the paint apps. It won't be vac metallized, but it will feature gold paint.

Picked up a Reveal the Rebels set at TRU this morning. They still seem to be a little scarce for some reason.  I would think they would be out in quantities in time for the premiere of the show, but aside from the Command stock, 20" and 31" figures, Rebels toys aren't super abundant.

I picked up the TBS ROTS Vader and Snowspeeder Wedge this morning, as well as the ROTS Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighter.  The BOGO deal at TRU certainly was a help.

So would you say the Jawas are 3.75" scale or 6" scale, Jeff?

They are suposed to be 3.75" scale.  They are a little on the tall side, but they were definitely intended to be a 3.75" product. 

As was pointed out on the JD Twitter, they work for the "tall Jawas" at the Lars' homestead scene:

Ah.  I know there had been some rumors circulating about the possibility of a TBS 6" Jawa 2-pack, and I thought it was a possibility that these Jawas might be part of that set.

Finally picked up a 6" Greedo as part of the BOGO deal at TRU.

Looks like a RotS Palpatine in the pics.  I'd prefer one that looked like the older Jedi version... and as someone pointed out on Yak, where's the force lightning?

The deco looks much more like a ROTJ Palpatine from looking at this picture.  The cane was more a ROTJ accessory, not ROTS.

But my oh my!  I am just pleased as can be about Leia in Boussh disguise and Han Solo in carbonite!!!!!!

Good pics, Jeff!  And thanks!!!

Of all of the SHIELD operatives to go undercover in HYDRA.... Simmons?!?!  The sheer audacity of that move is astounding.  Although the scene between her and Coulson in the apartment was pretty funny.  But it seems like she might be deceptively capable in an undercover role.

Those editing transitions are actually called WIPES.

Hi Nicklab, I havenīt seen aliens, but indeed lots of influences from major films are soon to be unveiled.

Perhaps the narrative of the series will get even more complex as the animation team explore the sources
from drafts and also EU.

I think for Kallus survival and similar situations (a guy holding from a column, a broken wall in a vacuum tempest)
there lack details, and maybe one of them could be the use of a repursol lift device inside their belts.

SW never need to explain technology, cause always the movies accepted it for granted, but
in times of realism in cinema, they could give a glimpse on that. Cheers :)

Really?  OMG, Aliens was just a masterpiece of sci-fi and action films.  One of James Cameron's best films, without a doubt.   That airlock in the floor of the Star Destroyer and the decompression looked a lot like the scene onboard the Sulaco in Aliens.  At least to me it did.

All I ever see from this line are the same four figures:  Cap, Iron Man, Hyperion and Reaper.

I would like to pick up Ant Man and Wasp, but this line has been beyond scarce.

I liked how they showed the interior of the star destroyer.

And they explore the perils of space travels like the scene of descompression where some
stormies and personal were swallow by space.

Kallus survived that and another risk clinging over the abyss.

As these scenes are fast,a nd for kids, they donīt tell us much on "how the agent managed to survive", but is
like a bit of information about what is consider in the imperial survival training.

Nice little nod there to Aliens, don't you think?

Hmmm.  Then it seems that maybe those Summer Convention exclusive stickers on the packages of the figures at Target are just a little bit misleading.

I also just took a look at my wave 1 Dany.  I didn't notice any differences between the figure I saw at Target yesterday which had the sticker and the one I have at home that I bought elsewhere.

I'm thinking now that there may be no difference between these Jon Snow figures after all.  I haven't opened my own Jon Snow yet.  What I'm wondering about the Longclaw sword is this:  are the inscriptions only on one side of the blade, and a fuller (groove) on the other side?  Because until now I had only seen the groove of the sword in the packaging for Jon Snow.
