Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
« on: September 25, 2014, 01:17 PM »
Episode 1 of Season 2 certainly started off nicely.  I have to say, Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter was one of the high points of the first Captain America film.  Seeing her reprise the role in Captain America - The Winter Soldier and now in the season premier of Agents of SHIELD was nice.  And knowing that the mid-season hiatus will be occupied by the spinoff Agent Carter is pretty cool.  And was it me, or did Dum Dum Dugan nearly open a casket with a dead blue alien?

It does seem as though some things have transpired since the end of Season 1.  Coulson seems to be rebuilding the organization bit by bit, but SHIELD continues to be regarded as an outlawed organization.  Who better than one of the great pricks of the Marvel Universe to pursue them than Glenn Talbot!

This new Hydra cell seems interesting.  I thought it might tie in with Baron Von Strucker who we saw at the end of Captain America - The Winter Soldier, but this looks like a completely different faction.  The ageless leader is definitely interesting.  The Absorbing Man seems to have been well done from an effects standpoint.  And I was personally happy to see that he barely had any dialogue.  When I realized who was playing the part I thought the show runners made the wise decision in limiting his speaking.  I found Brian Wade to be pretty hateable in other roles when he opened his mouth.  So silence here is his friend!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014

Probably.  But since Episode VII is being released in December '15 as opposed to May, it does throw off the sort of release schedule that we're used to.  IIRC the ROTS preview figures came out around late February or early March of 2005.  And then the main ROTS line started getting released about 1 month before the movie.  Given that history?  I would think that an Episode VII preview would come out around the time of SDCC 2015 or Star Wars Celebration.  The full line would probably follow some time around October 2015.

There's also JJ Abrams to consider.  He seems to have brought a much greater level of secrecy to the Episode VII production than we saw during the prequels.  And a lot of the quotes that I've seen coming from the cast have stated that they and JJ Abrams want to preserve that element of surprise with this movie.  The possibility of a preview figure(s) might fly in the face of that level of secrecy.  I get the feeling that the LFL licensing people and Hasbro would like the opportunity to cash in on preview merch, but if the ethos of secrecy is making it's way throughout the Disney/LFL organization, then I think it's likely that any preview items might be limited to characters we already know.

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

I've been hitting a number of area Walgreens over the past couple of weeks.  But the Fett finder on the Walgreens website will be a tremendous help in tracking this down.

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.

Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines
« on: September 13, 2014, 03:31 PM »
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.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

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.

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.
