The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Celebration Anaheim 2015
« on: April 17, 2015, 07:23 PM »
I would think Palpatine, personally.  The first Walgreens exclusive was a variation on a previously released figure:  Boba Fett.  Considering that Palpatine is on the way in the 6" basic figure line I can kind of understand an exclusive Force Lightning version for Walgreens.  Especially in light of the fact that the Walgreens toy buyer tweeted an image of lightning when someone asked him a direct question about the 2015 exclusive.

Wolfpack Podcast interviewed Jeff Labovitz and another member of the Hasbro marketing team at SWCA.  Lots and lots of "Maybe.  That might be cool."  Or "We can't really talk about that much of Fall '15 right now".

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

I went ahead and made an imgur album of the best parts: http://imgur.com/a/R7gpW


Thanks!  That shot of the shuttles and Star Destroyer is now on my desktop!!!

Jakku seems very reminiscent of Tatooine.  Perhaps even more desolate.  And the crashed X-Wing and Star Destroyer?  Fantastic images.  The dogfight sequence between the TIE Fighter and Falcon flying through that wrecked starship is pretty amazing stuff, too.

I really enjoyed the voiceover aspect of the trailer that echoed Lukes monologue from ROTJ.  The recovered helmet of Darth Vader from his funeral pyre seems almost like an object of worship on that pedestal.  The cloaked figure of Luke sitting beside a campfire with R2-D2 leaves you wondering about whether or not the Jedi have truly returned in this post Empire era.  And the mystery of what was once both Anakin and Luke's lightsaber?  The voiceover definitely led me to believe that was Leia who receiving the lightsaber, and the ring and clothing make me think that as well. 

And the flight of X-Wings?  The terrain almost made me think of Yavin IV.  Contrast that with that snowy First Order base that looks like something that could have been directed by Leni Riefenstahl.

Will John Hollis be CGI or do you think they recast the role? 

CGI head on a body double, Paul Walker-style.

But will he say "Guilty" to an aged Valorum/Terence Stamp?

Those aren't new... they've been showing them off since NYCC last October.

3.75" Mission Series Rebels Ahsoka and Rebels Vader are the only figures being show live for the first time...  so far.

Any links? Haven't seen those yet...

SSG has pics of the Hasbro booth.  The only reveals there are the Ahsoka prototype, a TBS 6" figure packaging mockup and packaged versions of Han in Carbonite, Commander Doom, Captain Rex, Commander Thorn and Commander Wolffe.

I am so glad that I had today off.  I would have gotten NOTHING done at work today.

It was fantastic to see the cast onstage together.  R2-D2 looks fantastic, but I am really astounded by the fact that they built a functional BB-8.  Just amazing!

And the trailer?  Whoa.  Where to start?  Crashed Star Destroyers?  The new Stormtroopers?  Leia being handed Luke's original lightsaber?  The Falcon in action?  Luke meditating and providing the voiceover?  Kylo Ren?  But the capper was clearly Han Solo and Chewbacca back aboard the Falcon.

I was trying to sync my iPad with my flatscreen with the YouTube app, but I got a message in the app saying that the Force Awakens event would not be viewable on that device (the flatscreen).  What gives?

I'm really glad that they decided to livestream the presentation.  And from looking at the program schedule it seems that they're not only holding the presentation in a single hall, but they're also simulcasting it in other event halls throughout the convention center.  So where in past Celebrations maybe only 3000 or so very lucky people who could get into that hall got to see the presentation, now almost everyone will get a chance to see the presentation as it happens.  And streaming it live is fantastic for those of us who couldn't make it to this Celebration.

More promo images have leaked out from Celebration, and the doors aren't even open yet.  Check out some of these images of Kylo Ren, what may be Captain Phasma and the new look for the Stormtroopers.  There's even a glimpse of a new type of Imperial Shuttle:

Rumor has it that a third wave is in fact in the works.  But I think Funko is waiting for more of wave 2 to sell through before presenting it to collectors.  The retail presence has been okay, and there has been some stock at TRU as well.  I'm just wondering what major characters they would go with for a third wave.

That probably came from a press screener.  When shows launch it's common practice to give the media DVD/Blu Ray screeners or access to a private website with the first few episodes. The fact that 4 episodes leaked is the giveaway in this case. And I bet HBO is going to find out who leaked these episodes and sue their ass.

Season 5 kicks off tonight.  I'm looking forward to it, but I'm also a little torn.  The series has been diverging from the books more and more.  And following the non-book events of the Hound's duel with Brienne of Tarth, I really don't know what to expect with the HBO series.  Especially since it seems very likely that the series will pass the novels.  I am looking forward to seeing Dorne and the Sand Snakes, but I'm also curious about how that storyline may differ from the books.

When I got a new laptop I was setting up my music on iTunes. I had downloaded a few songs from the iTunes Store but couldn't find them in the music I had transferred from my old laptop. I went on the iTunes Store to find the missing songs and was able to download those previously purchased songs for free.  iTunes recognizes your account and gives you access to those files that you've previously bought for another device.  It just takes a while for the concept to come around.
