Hopefully its not just a redecoed 6" TIE Fighter with redecoed TIE Pilot.

So they're thick enough and stable enough to stand on their own?

Thanks for posting.  How do these stay standing?

I didn't make it five minutes into Talking Dead. An hour of people talking about a boring episode of a series with a weak concept.

Good summary!!

Chris Hardwick is a boring star struck homer and is terrible to listen to.

I think his career peaked 20 years ago as a host on Singled Out.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Xbox One

They must not patch the software, and thus force you to download completely fresh versions.

My son and I end up getting in to arguments about screen time and these updates.  He's allowed about an hour of screen time to play xbox and every now and then I tell him to turn off the xbox and he says he hasn't even started yet because he is still waiting for the OS or the game to update.

Not sure why they don't have a function that lets you choose when to apply the updates (maybe the do and we haven't figured it out).

I might be mildly interested if the price point were reasonable.  Maybe more like $70.

I'm not going to treat 6" figures the same way as 3.75" figures where I was game for just about any repaint, no matter how lame.  The extra cost and space the 6" figures take up have me far less interested in slightly modified figures.  I still haven't picked up the exclusive 6" four pack they released a year ago for this exact reason.

I assumed the 20 years for the solar sailor would be for an unmanned craft. 

Heck, they can't really figure out how to get a manned craft to Mars and back and that would only take a year or so.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One TIE Striker

Cool.

I know some people hate the Nerf element to the toys, but I remember playing with my Battlestar Galactica toys as a kid with the shooting missiles - not the "fixed" version that prevented them from firing.  I loved having a Cylon vs. Viper battle with my buddies where you could shoot the little plastic missiles at each other's ship.

I think having the Nerf functionality in both an Empire and Rebel ship will be a cool play feature.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

The Beastie Boy's Sabotage works really well for Rogue One.

I remember watching Sense and Sensibility with my wife years ago.  Painful stuff.   A Beastie Boys soundtrack would have made that movie infinitely better.  Everything goes better with The Beastie Boys.  :P

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One - U-Wing Starfighter
« on: August 16, 2016, 12:51 PM »
I'll reserve judgement for now, but have no problem with them significantly downscaling a large ship.  I think that is really the only way these things can work economically.

From a kid perspective I have no problem with a $50 significantly downscaled toy as opposed to a $150 slightly downscaled toy.

As a collector with a fat enough wallet to pay for expense stuff I would prefer they made more $200 toys - e-wing, The Ghost, etc., but I'm sure the market just wont support things like that and completely understand them going smaller.

I'm sure Hasbro has good numbers on sales volumes, profits, price points, etc. on how many of the $150 MF ships they sold vs. the $50 X-Wings.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)
« on: August 12, 2016, 12:01 PM »
Love the trailer!  This movie has a cool dirty dozen vibe to it.  I hope that they do more anthology movies like this in the future, but further removed from the main movies.  Not everything has to revolve around the Death Star.

I also like the fact this this movie isn't a backstory spinoff of some main character. 

I think they can have more success with a movie like this than they can with a Han Solo or Kenobi flick just because there will be far fewer constraints on the characters and plot.  There is far less canon to maneuver through.

What did people think about the Suicide Squad movie? 

I'm not a comic book guy and don't have a bias one way or the other. 

It seems the pre-release buzz was good, but the score on Rotten Tomatoes is terrible.

Worth seeing or not?

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

I'll just watch the new deleted scenes on YouTube...

If people do want to try and find a way to split this set I'm really only interested in the astromech.

If it drops to $45-50 (with free/cheap shipping) I think I'll strongly consider it.  I like your collector math, but my collector math says the TIE Pilot is worth $0 to me.
