The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Scale Vehicles, A Fool's Dream?
« on: October 30, 2015, 02:32 PM »
The one big ticket item I might bite on would be a Sandcrawler with 6" scale Jawas.  I know it would be huge, but that's the one big vehicle I could see clearing out space to display and really forking over some big money for.

Only if they make an army of new droids to go with it.  I would love the Jawa droid sale scene as well.

Last night's episode wasn't terribly interesting either, and now I'm extra annoyed at the 15 minutes wasted on worm hunting in the first episode.

I would have thought there would be a lot of more interesting stories they could have written about bringing Rex and the crew back in to the fold.  Overall I'm a little disappointed with the start of Season 2 (not counting the summer episode with Darth Vader - that was awesome).

The kids and I will be doing a home marathon - watching one flick each Saturday night starting 11/7 and then seeing Ep7 on Saturday 12/19.  (yes, including 1-2-3 since they actually like the prequels).

We'll be doing the same, but I think we'll skip 1-3.  I think they're relevant to the 4-6 story line, but I'm not sure how relevant they are to the 7+ story line.

+1  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I can't remember the last EE exclusive that sold out quickly.  Five packs of unique R2 droids about 10 years ago?

I'm guessing you'll be safe waiting until Dec 17th to make your decision.

Anybody found a place to buy The Force Awakens theatrical release poster yet?  I did some surfing this morning and couldn't find any retailer for this yet.

I miss the old days of where you could easily pick all of the teaser posters and theatrical posters up without any hassle.

I was thinking about how the 501st clones said they were "de-commissioned".

I haven't kept up with all the comics and books, but has it been explained how/why the clones got de-commissioned and Stormtroopers became regularly recruited/conscripted people?

Don't get me wrong about Rebels - I love the show and love the fact that there is Star Wars stuff that I can watch with my 5-8 year old kids. 

I still won't let them watch most episodes of TCW.

I loved last season and thought the Vader episode to start the season was awesome.  I just thought this week's show was kind of weak and the worm fishing story line was a waste of time.

Hated the whole fishing story line.  It seemed like it consumed half the show and was pointless.  My only hope is that somehow there is payoff later with Zeb stirring up some giant worms that take out the AT-ATs.  But that would seem a little annoying as Rex and team took the worm down with one shot.

I'm fine if its not all action, but there needs to be some character development, etc. thrown in and not just a weak subplot about giant worms.  I would have loved to see more internal conflict/discussion between the clones and Kanan reconciling their past.

The rebellion is growing, and the stakes are higher.

Looks like they took down whatever you were linking to...   :'(

*edit* - Google helped me find it

Can't wait for Rebels to start back up!

Since the 6" figures feel a little less like toys and a little more like display pieces, I would be in favor of "environments" more than vehicles.  Seeing the 6" scale TIE Fighter reinforces my belief that these are going to be really hard to interact with as toys, and potentially really hard to display.

The only vehicle that I would love to see in this scale is a landspeeder, but if they do that they've got to make a C-3PO.

My quick thoughts on "environments":
  • Jabba's Sail Barge (or palace) - would be great to have somewhere to display a bunch of the figures we have that fit this scene
  • Death Star - maybe around the detention center, but you'll need to make a "Death Squad Commander"
  • Hoth Base - I need a place for my Tuantaun and Wampa
  • Mos Eisley Cantina - I would love to see a whole wave of cantina patrons (Hammerhead please) to go along with the release of this set

It would be cool if they made these environments with a pack in figure that we wouldn't normally see - e.g. Yakface with a Jabba's Sail Barge.

Thanks for posting.  I really like the comparison shot with the 3 3/4" ship to see just how big it is.

I'm still really torn on this item.  I like the concept of big ships, but this seems too big to manage without hanging it from the ceiling someplace.   

I think I would have much preferred to see a Landspeeder in this scale first.

Kudos to Hasbro, but I'm still in a wait and see mode with this one.

I want to get a handful of these for my kids for Halloween.  I tried doing the bag feel thing at Target the other day, but failed in my attempt at identifying certain figures.

Does anyone know the best (cheapest) way to get certain ones out of this set?  I'm fine buying opened figures. 

I looked on eBay and the prices seemed crazy high.

I'm not getting too worked up about this.

Can anyone remember a TRU exclusive that wasn't easy to get?  Maybe this one will be a little bit harder as its actually priced at a sensible price.

I'm guessing these will be warming the pegs this time next year...

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" 'Armor Up' Assortment
« on: September 7, 2015, 03:49 PM »
I haven't had the chance to do a comparison yet, but is there generally a difference between the standard figures and the armor up versions, other than the pack-in?  I'm still trying to figure out if I need any of these.
