The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)
« on: December 22, 2014, 01:01 PM »
Here is a first look at some of the 6" figures.

Plus a new shot of the Kylo Ren helmet

Very reminiscent of some of the McQuarrie concepts for Darth Vader's helmet.  Much more samurai inspired, IMHO.

The portrait on Chewbacca looks different from the 6" figure that's currently on the market.  Definitely more of a neutral expression.

93
It looks to me like BB-8 is most likely a pack-in with Rey.

94
I saw the Captain Phasma report.  From all of the rumors that I've read, I think that Captain Phasma is actually the Chrome Stormtrooper Commander, rumored to be played by actress Gwendoline Christie

File this under TFA 6" figures:  http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/Star_Wars_The_Force_Awakens_Six_Inch_Action_Figures_Leaked_Photo_161642.asp

This appears to be an image of 6" figure prototypes for THE FORCE AWAKENS line.  There are no names associated with the characters, but from left to right it appears to be:

-Kylo Ren ???
-Finn
-Rey
-BB-8
-Chewbacca

Just looked over my 2013 list for TESB.  It looks like I finally have some open slots for some new characters!

Picking 4 new characters for my TESB list was a little more challenging than I thought it would be.  Whether or not Hasbro gets to any of my new TESB choices is another thing entirely.  But with only ONE character coming off of my ROTJ list?  That's another story.

So are we going to be doing a 6" figure poll at some point, too?

Aloha from the Big Island all.

Nice!  I've been to Oahu and Maui which were both fantastic.  But I hear the Big Island is amazing.  Are you going to go check out that lava flow in Pahoa?

Wow!  It wasn't until the thread went up that I realized a whopping 4 figures got knocked off of my 2013 TESB list!  So bye-bye to Snowspeeder Wedge, Han Solo in Carbonite, Yoda and Toryn Farr.  So who are the replacements?


-Force Spirit Obi-Wan Kenobi - Hoth



-Treva Horme



-Wiorkettle



-IG-88 (Cloud City junk room)



-Bespin Guard (Wing Guard from Kenner vintage card)



-Lt. Sheckil



-Asteroid Victim Imperial Officer



-Princess Leia Organa - Cloud City Escape (resculpt)



-Hoth Rebel Commander (Kenner Vintage Figure)



-Hoth Rebel Hangar Tech

Not a purchase, but an interesting find related to the Black Series 6" figures.  One Amazon seller is offering a 6" scale softgoods Jedi robe.  Thus far the only figures that it's appropriate for are the ROTS versions of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker.  But with the potential for more Jedi figures in the near future, this could be a cool accessory.

Very cool way to reveal the character names.  I certainly appreciated it!  The article stated that the card numbering is actually done in a very deliberate way.

Personally, I'm thinking that Kylo Ren may be Adam Driver's character.

I agree...Kylo "The Graverobber" Ren.


Rumors were circulating that Driver's character was searching for Sith artifacts and tombs.  The jagged nature of that lightsaber blade does make it seem like it could be ancient in origin, as if it were taken from the tomb of some long dead Sith.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Also curious what happened to Raina at the end there.

If you pause the footage you can make out her face in the shadows, but it's definitely hard to see what she/it is now.  Definitely not the woman in the flower dress any longer though...

Just looking at what happened in that chamber with Skye and Tripp?  It looked like Raina was affected much in the same way that Skye was.  Skye wound up in a cocoon, it would seem.  If the same thing happened to Raina it makes sense since we already know that she can hold the Diviner without being killed.

Agent Carter looks like it's going to be pretty good.  I thought that Hayley Atwell was fantastic in Captain America - The First Avenger.  I'm hoping that for the sake of continuity Howard Stark also gets included in the mix.  He seemed to be an integral part of the first Cap movie.  And if they can get Tommy Lee Jones, too?  That would be fantastic.

As for last night's episode?  It still seems like there's a whole lot bubbling under the surface.  Just WHAT is Skye's father?  It looked like he was about to transform into something but it stopped.  Whitehall got taken out, although it did seem a little anti-climactic.  And then the events down below?  Well, some of the showrunners seem to know how to leave the audience wanting more.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)
« on: December 9, 2014, 07:49 PM »
The series has me wondering more and more if the crew of the Ghost is going to become more deeply involved with the Alliance.  They're basically passing themselves off as a freighter crew that regularly gets involved in "Imperial entanglements".  But from the episode with the droids to their rendezvous with the blockade runner, it looks as though "Fulcrum" may actually be Bail Organa.  He was overtly shown in the episode with Threepio and R2.  And when the crew of the Ghost handed over Seebo, the ship they docked with looked like the same blockade runner from the episode with the droids. 

As for where things go?  I guess the season needs to progress and we'll see how the showrunners direct the series.  Will they get as many seasons as Clone Wars?  Who knows.  I've actually seen a rumor about ANOTHER Star Wars animated series in the past couple of weeks.

Power of the Jedi / Re: Best POTJ Fig?
« on: December 9, 2014, 07:37 PM »
Glad to see a thread like this bumped up.  POTJ really was one of those very cool lines.  Great sculpting and cool character selections.

I still think that FX-7 is one of the best figures of this line.  That figure really stands the test of time very well some 12+ years later.  And with some hindsight there are a few other POTJ figures that I kind of like.  Amanaman was pretty awesome.  And Bacta Tank Luke was, too, if we're talking about the Deluxe line.  As for basic figures?  The sculpts on Ellors Madak, Tessek and Zutton hold up pretty well for me.  And I definitely appreciated the astromechs like R2-Q5 and R4-M9.
