I'm definitely going to have extras from wave 1 & 2.  I've got orders on a case of each right now.

I read somewhere an interview (might have been at Scum) about how GG is packaging these sort of like Kubricks.  That was their words and with their size I wonder what market of collector they are going after here

I'm on the fence on these, thought about it but its probably something I'll pass on.  Not really interested too much in SW right now I guess :-\

The cases come with blind packing.  Meaning, that an even number of each character is in each case, with the exception of the chase Leia, but they aren't in packaging that allows you to know what's inside.  After seeing the boxes at Toy Fair.... (see below)



...the packaging does look somewhat like that of the Kubricks line.  I think these boxes are slightly larger though.  The price point is also much better.

Picked up Cooperstown Seaver & Ryan regulars tonight.  They are just SO COOL!  Wish I could've found Reggie & Yogi, but it wasn't meant to be tonight.  They had some of the others in the lineup, and I wanted to pick up Bob Gibson, but I have to save some $ for Wizard World in Chicago.

I also picked up my first NFL 8 piece, Jamal Lewis.  This is definitely a cool series, even if they didn't make a single defensive player in the lineup.

Yeah, the variant is Nolan in the '70's/'80's Astros uni.  What's better is they're doing Reggie in the 70's vintage A's uni!

Padme hasn't turned up in Diamond Previews, so it doesn't appear to be up for pre-order just yet.  It's just as well that it's NOT ready for pre-order, since Gentle Giant has almost flooded the market with product this year.

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Vintage OTC Figures

As far as prequel figs I'd be all for that...but not at the 100% markup.  I've been asking for new Super Maul, Qui-Gon, Obi-Wans, Anakins and Dookus for a while now (with little support :p)  It's something I want to see happen though


Hey, don't forget that I've been calling for those too.  I think the Jedi and Sith really do need to be presented in a manner much like the VOTC in terms of sculpting and articulation.  If Hasbro would present these ultimate versions, and not something like "Coruscant Chase Obi-Wan & Outlander Obi-Wan & Arena Obi-Wan & Pilot Obi-Wan", I would gladly fork over $10 each to save myself the $20 that four basic versions would cost.

As for the VOTC line, I'd like to see it continue with characters that were part of the vintage line.  The 12 back characters would be a great place to start.

Well, NFL 8 and the LMB Cooperstown series are both out.  Anyone kind enough to look out for the Yogi and Reggie variants for me?

I caved and bought the new Rhino and black costume Spiderman.  Bad collector!  You already have the SC versions!

Original Trilogy Collection / Re: Jedi Council sets 3 & 4

This is definitely a disappointing turn of events.  Agen Kolar and Stass Allie shouldn't have been a part of these sets.  I'm also disappointed that the Saesee Tiin mold is the SAGA version, and not the CLONE WARS one.  Just fix that horn and give him bendable knees and he would've been perfect.

Well, riddle me this:  are these official marketing images, or collector mockups?

A modern blue Snaggletooth.  I never thought I'd live to see the day.  Thank the maker for Hyperspace!
