Thus far the figures haven't really appealed to me, but I could be on board with some sort of spaceship vehicle or playset. I look forward to seeing what Super 7 unveils.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: July 1, 2014, 09:23 PM »
Whaaaa? The Five Below near me hasn't restocked Clone Wars in a very long time. I'll have to check this week because some extra cheap troopers are always nice.

That Fett looks great! I love the 4" version of the concept design, and I'll be happy to add the 6" incarnation to my collection.

The prototype armor makes sense for this kind of exclusive.  I think the ROTJ armor might be better suited to some sort of a multipack.

ROTJ Fett with a repacked Jabba and Slave Leia would make a slick SDCC Exclusive for TRU next year. On a more serious note, are there major differences between the ESB and ROTJ Boba Fett costumes that would require new parts? I know the Fett got different 4" molds for ESB and ROTJ, but I never looked too closely for major differences in the outfits.

Since this set is a TRU exclusive it should be available at stores as well. That's how they have handled most SDCC exclusives in the past. Now that I remember that I'm bummed HTS didn't get this Cantina pack, with the Jabba going to TRU. Ah well.

The Jabba set is offered thru Hasbrotoyshop, so black series collectors attending SDCC have been blessed with two separate lines to wait on.

Can't say I've ever seen a cheap (or simply normal priced) figure in a pharmacy, sooooooo....  Yeah, careful what you wish for mayb?  :-\

I ran into a 2012 Legends Qui-Gon a few months ago in a Walgreens.  It was $15.99

$15.99?!? That's Rite Aid pricing by me. Walgreens is the cheapest of the drug stores in my area.

Got the Knifehead today! I am disappointed by the poor construction (soft plastic and hollow parts), but the insane level of cool once this thing is assembled and displayed more than makes up for the shortcomings.

I dunno, it feels pretty hefty to me, but some of the stiff joints on mine make me nervous, given Neca's track record of QC. I can't really get much range of motion out of the "big arms" it seems. Dude is a little front heavy too.

That's odd, I'm more worried about joints just giving out over time than I am for them breaking. Also I should probably clarify that the construction isn't awful as I haven't had anything break (knock on wood), it just seems like much lesser-quality compared to the Gipsy figure.

Anyway, here are some pics:

My Knifehead should be arriving with today's mail. I don't really have space for it but I'm excited nonetheless.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII
« on: June 20, 2014, 08:23 PM »
Who? :-\

Director of Looper and a handful Breaking Bad episodes. Not a lengthy resume but I enjoyed Looper, so I look forward to seeing what he does with Star Wars.

I found a couple of new-ish 2 packs at target this morning:



Case assortment looked like 4 of each new pack and 4 of the Han/chewie set. I didn't grab the new sets as the paint looked pretty poor, especially on the Grievous figures.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 3
« on: June 18, 2014, 10:40 PM »
Retailers may not have been overly receptive towards an 8 figure case, especially with how lightly they have been stocking recently.

58
Yeah, I can't justify the expense for a cruddy cardboard table. If they had bothered to put an ounce of effort into this set and given us plastic chairs and table, etc I would have bitten. This is really a weak effort.

I'm glad Hasbro didn't add in extra accessories. I hate seeing some new pieces added to straight repack figures, especially when the figures are relatively high priced to begin with.

Going forward this would be a cool format for repainted and retooled figures. A pair of Clone Officers or Mynock Hunt Han and Chewie would be pretty nice.

the door to the Falcon fell open

What a piece of junk!  ;D

That's uh... interesting? It certainly looks like a cool package for MIB collectors, but I can't see this as appealing to other collectors or parents/kids/gift givers.
