The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: August 18, 2015, 02:39 PM »
Hmmm.  This Chrome Series name has some possibilities.  Especially since Captain Phasma is the new "It" trooper with the Chrome Helmet.

The image is pretty cool.  And there are subtle little details in there that bring you back to the OT.  The stonework is in there subtly, but it looks like that could be the Massassi Temple on Yavin IV.  And then there's a couple of the coats and jackets.  They're very reminiscent of jackets we saw in the OT (Captain Antilles, Biggs cut scene, Luke ceremony), some of which were based on 1970's motorcycle jackets.  The coat that Diego Luna has on is very reminiscent of Han's coat from Hoth...but in BLUE!  And the headgear worn by one of the background characters looks very similar to headgear we saw in TESB.

It's also interesting to see Mads Mikkelson added to the cast.  That guy seems like he was born to play a villain!  And I could totally see him play an Imperial after having seen him in Casino Royale.

Silly me.  Still, that scene where Plo Koon, Wolffe and the Wolffe Pack troops find the shuttle and lightsaber of Syfo Dyas was one of the coolest moments of the Clone Wars Lost Missions.  And making that TBS Commander Wolffe into a more generic Wolffe Pack member would be a fun customizing project.

I've seen a few of the final black series wave in WalMart clearance aisles, but not at clearance prices. The only one of the troops that I want is another Commander Wolffe in his sandstorm armor from the lost missions episodes.  Oddly enough I see all of the other troopers but not Wolffe. 

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode IX

I think that all depends on how well the new trilogy is received. And that means with fans, the mainstream movie audience, and overall profits. 

Something about this vehicle design screams "mini-rig"... just not so 'mini'.

The specific nature of both Finn and Rey as Jakku versions leads you to conclude that there are more versions in the works.  Finn in his First Order Stormtrooper armor seems very likely.  As for Rey?  Who knows.

The figures look a bit pre-posed.  Remember the BARC speeder with BARC Trooper from the ROTS line?  I'm thinking these figures might be similarly articulated to that figure.

The Poe Dameron figure looks significantly different from the Finn figure.  The jacket looks the same, but the resemblance ends there.  And this take on Poe looks like how we saw him in the behind the scenes video from SDCC.

I'm just shocked to see people paying $100+ for figures that will sell for less than $10 in the space of three weeks.  This frenzy effect is frightening to witness

Photos have leaked of the Black Panther from the set of Captain America - Civil War in Berlin, Germany.  Also on hand?  Chris Evans in his Cap uniform and Sebastian Stan.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)

Poor 3PO. No one can ever find replacement parts that match the rest of his body. He always has to look like some beater car. How hard is it to find gold parts or at least a spray can?

You'd think one of the heroes of the Republic would get some decent parts.  I mean Artoo gets blasted by Vader during the Battle of Yavin and he's all pristine for the awards ceremony.  Who knows what's up with Threepio in the thirty years that he loses an arm and can't get the matching part.  You'd think the Solo/Organa/Skywalker clan would take better care of their family heirloom.

I think C-3PO's status as a walking pile of spare parts shows just how busted ass "The Resistance" is 30 years after the Battle of Endor. 

Call it a theory.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: The KOTOR II information thread

I like the fact that KOTOR got re-released for iOS.  But I was never able to get any audio from the game when playing it on my iPad.  Did anyone else encounter that issue?

The Galactus costume is a product of it's times.  And regarding costumes over a range of comics there was a perfect line from Cyclops in that first X-Men film: "What, do you expect us to run around in yellow spandex?"

But to think that lifeforms should be limited to a size that's similar to that of humankind is, pardon the pun, small thinking.  Especially when some of the discoveries of the Kepler telescope have revealed exoplanets in the so-called "Goldilocks zone" around distant stars that might support life yet are far larger than the Earth.  Exobiologists have theorized the possibility that some alien species could be far larger than humans.  Are they likely to look exactly like humans but stand over 100 feet tall?  Probably not.  But that possibility of life existing at a far larger scale than humans is an interesting concept.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts

Another Biker Scout and speeder bike might be attractive at that price!

With all the talk of discounts and clearance I was surprised to see that WalMart is holding at full price on TBS 3.75" figures.  I saw the last wave at a local store, but the figures were all $12.83 each.
