The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)
« on: November 6, 2014, 03:47 PM »
No luck yet.  I've been trying the Fett finder via the Walgreens site, but there's been nothing in any of the stores that have Proto Fett listed as in stock.

WOW!  That looks pretty amazing.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

A title like this seems to imply that we're looking at a much bigger picture type of story.  And it may not be limited to the Jedi VS Sith conflict that we saw in the PT all the way through the OT.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - 5 POA Animated Style Figs
« on: November 2, 2014, 11:30 AM »
I've been using my Amazon wishlist to keep track of new and upcoming figures, vehicles, etc.  And yesterday I got around to adding some of the REBELS basic figures to my list.  When I did I was a little surprised.  There were some sellers who had them  in stock at inflated prices.  But others that are still pending had arrival dates in January.  Clearly, the 3.75" basic figures seem to be experiencing some sort of delay.  But JANUARY?!?!

Watched the REBELS episode "Rise of the old masters".  It was interesting to finally see the Inquisitor at work.  And not so surprising that he would use a Jedi Master as bait.  But I definitely appreciated when the Inquisitor was able to determine from Kanan's fighting style that he was a student of Depa Billaba... which gets to my point in this thread!  Seeing how Master Billaba factors into Kanan's story, I think she's a prime candidate for the Episode I figure poll.  So if you haven't voted for EPISODE I yet, vote for Kanan Jarrus's Jedi Master - Depa Billaba!!!

Damn.  And to happen this week when that Antares rocket exploded just after liftoff from that launch facility in Virginia.  At least in that accident there weren't any fatalities.

I picked up the AT-DP today.  For some strange reason this Target store didn't have the UPC on file at the register.  So I got it for $19.99.

12" Figures / Re: Sidehow 12" X-Wing Luke
« on: October 30, 2014, 12:39 PM »
Sideshow's 12" figure pricing has gone up exponentially.  I remember when they first introduced the line.  You could get figures for somewhere in the neighborhood of $45.  But now this Luke is $240?!!?  I got priced out of the market a while ago.

Check out THIS VIDEO FROM THE OFFICIAL SITE.  It's a trailer for the new reference book Star Wars Costumes - The Original Trilogy which was released yesterday.  This volume has photographed many of the OT costumes in painstaking detail.  There are Rebel pilot helmets that have never been seen with such detail.  The tiny intricacies of Vader's costume.  And I'm sure there's probably a little bit about the infamous brown or blue coat worn by Han Solo in TESB.

Amazon.com currently has this book on sale for $37.95.  And it looks impressive.

Most impressive.

Fitz is totally in the friend zone when it comes to Simmons.  And it also seems like with his Simmons hallucinations that he might actually have some latent tendencies.  Not that there's anything wrong with that....

I like the addition of Adrianne Palicki as Mockingbird.  She looks like she's got the fighting style right with the batons.  It also helps that she's easy on the eyes.

The fight choreography has actually been pretty awesome.  I saw what looked like some Wu Shu moves during May's fight sequence with the Hydra merc in the Belgian safe house.

The Ward storyline has been weird and manipulative.  Especially the scenes between him and Skye.  But seriously, how has it been kept under wraps for all this time that Ward's brother is a United States Senator?  Really?!?!

I'd love to see a solo Hawkeye film.  He's got a number of solo books to pull from and the current comic focusing on what Hawkeye does when he's not an avenger is excellent source material.  As a guy without crazy super powers, there's a lot more opportunity to character build versus the non-stop action we get from most of the Avengers.  Truth be told though, I'd love to see Phase 4 be a "West Coast Avengers" storyline where Hawk creates a sister team out in California. 

A West Coast Avengers spinoff might be the right vehicle for Hawkeye to grow as a character in the MCU.  There are also his roots in SHIELD to consider, and he was mentioned in passing during last night's Agents of SHIELD.  But seeing the cosmic/global nature of the threats that the Avengers are facing, I don't know if the whole West Coast team concept makes as much sense in the context of the MCU as it did in the comics back in the 80's and 90's.

I thought I heard mention of Mockingbird, so maybe they're already going this route. 

Mockingbird has actually been featured in the past couple of episodes of Agents of SHIELD.  So far she's been interesting, and I think they're working to develop her into more than just a featured character.  I hope they do.  Because Adrianne Palicki is HOT!!!!

In the comic, Stark handed the IM gig over to Rhodey, so Black-Iron-Man and later War Machine were a big part of that team. Would be a cool way to keep the Avengers going if RDJ and the other big names want a break or just limit their involvement to cameos akin to Sam Jackson's Fury.

This would be a cool way to utilize someone who's as strong of an actor as Don Cheadle.  And expanding on his independent role as War Machine/Iron Patriot would be worth examining.  To that end, I also have to wonder if he's also going to be a factor in the Captain America 3 story line.

Wow.  They're going with an Inhumans project?!?!  SERIOUSLY?!?!?!  Marvel Studios is definitely getting ambitious.  But I think after the success they had with Guardians of the Galaxy they're more inclined to take some risks with some lesser known characters.

There definitely seems to have been a trail leading up to a Black Panther movie.  Pretty much from the time they introduced Vibranium.  And now with Andy Serkis seemingly cast as Ulysees Klaw and being featured in the Avengers - Age of Ultron trailer?  Top that off with a story line in A-AoU that looks like Ultron will be seeking out Vibranium for his own use?  Black Panther seems like a natural fit for that story.  And I wouldn't be surprised if he pops up in some capacity in Age of Ultron.

But I'm also surprised by what was NOT announced.  Like?  No Black Widow solo film.  No Hulk solo film.  And no mention of Iron Man 4.  I know that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has said that Black Widow will be a major player in the upcoming Avengers projects.  And that may be why there won't be a Black Widow film in the immediate future. 

I'm personally disappointed that there was no Hulk film announced.  Banner & Hulk were just AMAZING in the first Avengers film.  Joss Whedon figured out how to make use of the character so well.  But still, the first two Hulk movies proved to be a challenge.  And I think that Marvel Studios is probably still trying to find the right story and script for a Hulk solo film.  Maybe if someone like say, Joss Whedon, takes on the project, then maybe this movie would work!

I'm still a little bummed that RDJ is only up for doing the Cap 3 movie and Avengers films.  He's been awesome as Tony Stark.  And he can totally carry one of these movies on his own.  I would just hate for Iron Man 3 to be the last of the Iron Man solo films.  But I can't say that I was disappointed that there wasn't a Hawkeye film announcement.  I think the character needs some more development in future Avengers films before he can anchor a film of his own.

NICE!  Benedict Cumberbatch is very cool casting for this.  Especially in light of Joaquin Phoenix being a flake about the whole process.  And in total contrast, Cumberbatch really seemed to get into the whole mo-cap process for playing Smaug in The Hobbit.  So I can see him getting into Dr. Strange in a big way, too.

Way to go Marvel.  So someone leaks the trailer?  Marvel says screw them and they release the trailer for real!  Smart move on their part.  And the leakers are left hanging while Marvel gets a lot of attention for a huge project.

Oh, and the trailer looks awesome!  The stakes clearly appear to have been raised.
