The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Upcoming Black Series figures?

It wouldn't surprise me if they did.  A TPM Obi-Wan might actually be something to consider as a pairing to go with the Darth Maul figure from wave 1.

Cool lineup, definitely.  I'm hoping that the Obi-Wan figure will indeed be an ANH version.  This listing does have a different product code in the etailers listing than the ROTS version of Obi-Wan.  I guess we'll have to wait and see what this new listing yields.

I'm not allowed to post a link yet, but fans of the Funko GoT line may want to check out EE on Saturday...  #dailydeal

So, it's Saturday...

It looks like the exposure of the Black Widow's past in Captain America - The Winter Soldier is going to be further explored in upcoming Marvel Comics.  And real-world players from the media like Anderson Cooper of CNN will be depicted investigating Natasha and her somewhat questionable past.  I think it's actually pretty interesting and topical.  But it could also have the effect of make the book seem deliberately dated.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

More Episode VII rumors came out yesterday.  These pertain to the current state of the Empire as well as the Alliance.  For the most part it sounds like there's a lot of speculation going on. 

I'm left wondering if we're going to get any sort of a Behind the Scenes look from JJ Abrams at some point this year.  At least, other than the Force for Change videos.  There was a pretty steady stream of imagery from the Official Site during production of the PT.  But this new trilogy seems to be shrouded in a lot of secrecy.

Check aisles other than the AF aisle.  A store near me has a clearance aisle in the toy department, and I found the Ewok catapult there.  That rang up at $16.

From what I've read over the years it sounds like GL kept Fox somewhat at arms length.  He wound up giving them a stake in ANH.  But with his end of that movie he was essentially able to set up Lucasfilm as an indie studio, and he retained more significant ownership of the subsequent films along with the licensing.  From that point forward Fox served essentially as a distributor, and not much more.

Yeah, that is a very concerted, calculated plan to launch the new show.  To be honest, I'm happy to see that sort of aggressive marketing stance.

I've checked a couple of Walgreens stores, but no sign of the exclusive Tyrion.

They look like ducks.

Why would there be stormtroopers anyway? I thought the Empire was destroyed. Are we talking about a hold out faction near a certain black hole maw facility?

I think if you're looking JUST at the movies, it's likely that Coruscant was still a major Imperial stronghold.  And that's despite the little add-on scene from the end of ROTJ.

And with these possible looks for Han Solo being revealed, it opens up that old question:  blue or brown?!?!?!

That from a programmer who couldn't work a printer.  Samir....Na... Na... Not gonna work here anymore!

Yes.  Complete with that rich, Corellian leather!

Collect All 92! / Re: Klaatu (in Skiff Outfit)
« on: August 13, 2014, 10:05 AM »
Looking at some of the recent Skiff Guards and Jabba's henchmen, yeah, this Klaatu is due for an update.  The POTF2 figure has to date back to what, 1998?  I agree that I'd like to see some new, previously unmade goons first.  But this figure could stand to be updated.  But I think those big, blousy pants might present a challenge for knee articulation.

And it's great to have Collect All 92 back, Scott!!!
