The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic Con 2014

All I know is, if I don't soil myself badly in the next hour and a half, I am going to feel utterly shortchanged after all these months of excretory anticipation.  :D

Someone particular has been teasing that there's a soil-worthy moment on it's way, haven't they?  Would that be someone who uses as pseudonym for site reporting, as well as book publications?

The regular version of the White Walker looks pretty cool.  I hope that at some point we get the Night's King White Walker that was saw in season 4, too.  The glowing feature seems like it would be more along the lines of something from the books.

A little under 90 minutes until the Hasbro panel commences at SDCC.  Anyone willing to go out on a limb with a prediction?

So how does the glowing feature look? 

I have to think that the pre-orders were part of a formula for Walgreens to determine demand.  Since these sold out in a single day, perhaps Walgreens will be prepared to increase the size of their order.

There's also the matter of the Disney store.  Of all brick & mortar retail, they've started to be a go-to destination for Star Wars figures.  And TBS basic figures sell there for $10.99 each.

Another new video premiered last night.  EW has an exclusive clip featuring the Inquisitor and his unique lightsaber.

And we've got another new trailer for REBELS today.  This one is called Star Wars Rebels: A Look Ahead.  And it features some familiar faces.

Pretty sure those are made of plastic.  I never actually opened mine, but from a safety standpoint alone I can't see the cup actually being made out of glass.

The presentation is tomorrow, right?  It would be nice if the presentation would get streamed live, but that might be asking too much.  Especially since there are likely to be about 200 people live tweeting from inside the event.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars: Rebels - Class I Vehicles

Based on how much Rebels seems to be borrowing from Kenner (small wing TIE, Troop Transport), wouldn't it be neat to see them use some of the Kenner mini-rigs in the show so that Hasbro could get us updated versions of them in a new Class I type line?

I'd love to see an updated INT-4, AST-5, ISP-6, or MTV-7 make their way into the show...   :D


Those vintage mini-rigs were pretty cool.  But if Hasbro cooked something up in conjunction with the Lucas Animation design people?  Oh, these could be really nice!  I liked some of the Clone Wars mini-rigs, and I think some OT era mini-rigs would be awesome.

Looks like Bantha Skull has an image of the Imperial Troop Transport as it's supposed to appear in the REBELS series.  It looks like it's been updated, but the overall design is very much in line with the vintage Kenner vehicle.

The figures packed with these vehicles reminds me far more of the Costco exclusive pieces we've seen in recent years.  Like the Avengers Quinjet packed with repainted versions of Iron Man and Captain America.

But as for actual Class I vehicles?  I'm hoping for speeder bikes with figures.  Like the ones we saw in the new REBELS trailer that just premiered this week.

Target Exclusive Vehicle with Figure Asst. via GH on Facebook.

So THIS is the Class I assortment?  It just comes across a little odd.

I can get the exclusivity for Target to have these vehicles packaged with the figures.  It's something a little different.  But the Class I label historically denoted a smaller vehicle with 1 or 2 figures.  These 2 vehicles look decidedly more like Class II vehicles.

Hot Toys announced 1/4 and 1/6 scale toys.  I think it would be awesome if they announced some sort of 1/18th scale line.  I think the dream of a lot of adult collectors is to have some detailed environments from a high end shop like Hot Toys or Sideshow.  But if anything I think this Hot Toys announcement is going to broaden what we see in the realm of 12"  and 18" figures.
