LEGO / Re: TRU Exclusive "Imperial Inspection" LEGO Set
« on: March 1, 2005, 05:42 PM »
I don't think this is necessarily a TRU exclusive.  I saw it at a LEGO store today.

I think Dave should get an Acrylic case from Oscar just to protect his little baby.  ;)

I think Dave should sell his and he's nuts if he doesn't.  I'm sorry, but $3K for nada?  Who the hell cares?

So I guess I'm nuts, huh?  Sorry, not parting with mine.  Don't want to be that guy, and lose friends over it.

BTW, as we discussed a while back, there were TWO different Bobe Fett Bust-ups shown at Comic Con last year. Anyone have a picture of the one that's apparently not going to be available now, which lost out in favor of this Silver crap? I can't recall now what that one looked like...

Here was the picture of the 2nd Fett from SDCC:

Fett #2

Nick said that it was only a scaled down version of the Boba Mini-Bust...

From speaking to the Gentle Giant people in Chicago, they said that the Boba Fett that is just a sized down version of the original mini-bust may not be part of the line.  It might have only been a display piece, and nothing more.


Talked to Gentle Giant about this again at Toy Fair.  Once again, they reconfirmed that it was only a display piece based on the Boba Fett mini-bust, not part of the line.

I think the situation is kind of ridiculous.  Why the hell are they offering to buy product from people who find it early?  I can understand wanting to get things early in order to offer the images to their readers.  Perhaps they're trying to make up for their half-assed Q&A efforts at Toy Fair?

Fact is that GH has pretty well scooped every other collecting site when it comes to new figure images.  I can say this with some degree of objectivity AND perspective since I've worked as a Star Wars collecting site reporter for the past 4 years or so.  This just looks like RS is trying to play catchup now.

Middle Earth / Re: LOTR Trilogy Figures

Saw some cool LOTR at Toy Fair.  The carded figures I saw were:

Mount Doom Frodo
Mount Doom Sam
Electronic Eye of Sauron
Dagger throwing Legolas

And the boxed sets I saw were:

Shelob with Frodo and Sam

Elves of Middle Earth mockup box with:
Prologue Elven Warrior
Coronation Arwen
Council Elrond
Gil Galad
Haldir (looks like the Helm's Deep one)

Also, got some awesome news from NECA.  They're 20 or so inch tall Balrog is due out later this year.  AND, it'll be in scale with the Toy Biz line of figures.

I believe Jeff said that Vader was going to be a promo like buy so much stuff on April 2nd and get a free Red Metal vader

A POTF2 one at that ::)

Hmmm.  This is the same sculpt that they used for the 2002 Toy Fair Darth Vader, isn't it?

Mid March?  And we haven't seen anything yet?  That's really odd.  I'm hoping it pans out, I really like the anmated figure line.

Expect an announcement next week.

The Photo Center promotion might have something to do with the Darth Vader and Stormtrooper statues that were shown in that Yakface article about WalMart's plans for E3.

Expect 24-32 figures on April 2, which will include a more family event over the entire release weekend.

Walmart Photo Center?


Funny.  Keep reading.

Actually, the news team from The Jawa conducted some Q&A with Hasbro.  Read it here.

Too bad they won't do a Darryl Hannah figure.

Oh ye of little faith.  It's on the way.

Man I should get a fake ID for c3. :P

Think they serve 7&7 there?


Move to Canada, drinking age is 18 or 19, depending on the province. :-*

I used to make beer runs into Quebec when I went to school in northern NY.  We would literally cross the border, make a U-turn to go to the Canadian Duty Free store, buy a case of Molson Brador, and go back to campus.  It took all of half an hour.  A thing of beauty!

Tonight, I'm indulging in Starbucks, and a little later on it'll be a can of Full Throttle.  #*$&ing overnights suck!

Cool.  Hopefully that's indeed the case...  I don't need any exclusive packaging, so that works just fine for me.  I was just concerned that it might be a slightly different paint scheme, or that there was some random little detail to set this one apart from the regular/chase upcoming version.

It is the same.  Trust me.  I have it right here.  It's the same.

Please tell me that it's the same...  Please.   :-\

Yes, it's the same.  You big girl. :P

Bon Scott was THE MAN.  IMO, AC/DC went downhill after his death.  Even though they made a fitting tribute to him with Back In Black, they didn't have his attitude anymore.  Only Bon could sing "Big Balls".
