I think my bro may be going all in.  Depends what his car situation is by then but he and I are both excited about it.

I'm shocked if a "calamity jane" doesn't make wv2 list.  Shes well known etc.

Paul's put a lot of his heart and wallet into this already I think. I'm hopeful it's working out because I like to see good people succeed and Paul is as honest and genuine a guy as I've met in the hobby of collecting.  Not to kiss your ass too much Paul, but seriously I hope this works out man.

Plus I wanna buy Wild West toys. :)

Yeah like Jeff this has my attention.  I'm not so sure it's off or off by much.  Looks like maybe the wings are if anything?

Even with the nerf I'm at least intrigued and may pick it up first week.

I'm eyeing the bigger ships at Walmart and such from TFA and figure if they clearance I'll bite.  This though is interesting to me like the speeders from TFA which were high quality IMO.

I wasn't planning on picking this up anyway but I'm honestly shocked it took this long for NERF stuff to migrate.  I wish they'd make the guns a detachable feature ala 08 vehicles, but that kind of ingenuity seems missing from the team these days overall.

Paul was kind enough to pass along a press release for the Kickstarter campaign date and all the various levels people can get by supporting it!

This is really awesome Paul, and I plan to support.  I've wanted a wild west too, so I'm all for this.

Here's the link to our story on the front page:

I dig the "Vigilante" 3D render Paul...  :P  Is that Arm & Hammer there? 



Oh and this render too...  Really pro work being done Paul.  Hat (or derby, in this case) off to him/her.  Bat Masterson-ish eh? :)

Yeah I wouldn't let that be a deterrent nick.  These are production quality walls.  Not cheap materials but something that feels made by a large company.  I think you'll dig them even if you need to buy those binders.

Hmmm, I'd say yeah, kinda, but the company had double-sided tape to "stick" them down to a flat surface if that makes sense.

In CHEWIE's pic there you see those binder clips, which hold them together length-wise, but IMHO having a backer wall for them to be against too, is a huge help, as far as standing upright goes, or making a "corner" with them instead of a straight wall.

Right now though, double-side tape is the best sticky to the floor to keep them upright solution.

I'd again LOVE to see a floor done that they "clip" to.

The company is working on their own clip system too, to clip them together.

Mine are currently up on my customizing table and standing, and not falling down easily, but they can fall down if you bump them and they're not against a back wall to keep them propped up or taped to the surface.  I don't like the tape route, personally.

PM coming your way Paul, but wow, Wal-Mart?  Really?  Ugh.

Sorry on that man, but I like the other name better.  A little more mature tone to it.

Boy I hope that Missouri Train Robber happens. :P

You clip them and they kind of hold themselves up on a flat surface...  Many people are using a piece of glass painted black on one side for a shiny floor of sorts.  I'd like to see the guys at the company come up with a floor solution themselves, but floors mean more cost, so it's kind of a weighed decision ultimately.   If you had them on a shelf with a back to it, you can just set them up to cover the back...  That works ideally as well.

Fat guy had to get eaten...  fat guys can't survive this new world, I'm sorry.

I thought as this series goes, it was a ****load better than any previous episode.  And the character of Nick is kinda growing on me some because he's so vastly different.  Using the zombies multiple ways to save his life an'at, it's certainly a different perspective than this or TWD has ever really shown much outside of Michonne's pets, which was brief.  Rick's group's unwillingness to go stinky to do some good (or bad) annoys me, and it was nice to see someone who actually seems to enjoy the simpleness of doing just that to get along in the new world.

That said, it's still FTWD which isn't very good.  It was as good as they've ever done though, so I do like that it felt like some kind of upswing anyway.

I'm curious to see what's going on with everyone else.  I'd kind of given up on this show but caught the season finale before the new one, so I watched the new episode anyway, and man last season's finale was as stupid as anything I've seen on TV in a long time.  This episode felt far more interesting and subtle. 

I'm 100% sure I will be back to hating just about everyone on this show within the next 2 episodes and I'll quit watching it once more.

Wow that did work extremely well.  Even the emergency clangs.

Jayson posted the international trailer which has additional shots and dialogue, some of which could be considered uber spoilery.  You've been warned.

Compared to one another they may be close...  But I don't think the TFA one is terribly smaller than the OT ship actually.  For comparison sake the "giant" xwing that is on shelves currently is like 1/17.5 scale and SW figs themselves tend to be on the smaller size and fall more into a 1/19-1/20 scale (depends on which figure you're talking about...  A lot of the earlier modern fall more in the 1/17-1/18 scale).

The nice thing about the XWing is the models and lifesize props all don't match even so there is leeway.

So comparing them to each other and figuring I'd they're in the same undersized scale to each other there is some leeway I think as well.  I'm not sure how anal the TFA production was to the scale of the new shop being very specific, but the original was all over the place for 3 films.

I say if you compare em and you're happy, go with it.

He'll I figure you can still BS the DF story in there somehow.  Maybe it's not plans for the DS but just a schematic of the super laser, and that leads up to this.  EU always needed crowbarred in half the time as it was so I figure it still can be. :)

Maybe Gen. Rohm Mohc's droid obsession made the imperial droid design from Rogue one even.

Agreed completely...  They're taking the old and making you interested in it visually, which is awesome.  They're also throwing the old back at you like an old friend (X-Wings), and in some ways mixing that up too (The downed XW with the nose art).

The shot of the prisoner Rebel Pilots?  Incredible IMHO.

The tank appears to go ape**** and not care about collateral damage or friendly fire...  The crashing TIE, the Jedha city design...  Just so much to enjoy.  I really liked this trailer.

I can't say the speech Jyn was giving in the U-Wing was as powerful as I think we were supposed to feel it was, but it still had a little of that perhaps D-Day landing feel to it on the Higgins boat as Hanks talked to the men a little bit.

I also felt Jyn staring the TIE down was a little bit of Hanks and the Tiger-I on the bridge maybe?  A climactic moment?

Where do all those X-Wings attacking come into play with the whole thing?  How many planets are we jumping between here?  Jedha, Yavin IV...  is the jungle/beach/pouring rain planet all a separate place or multiple locales?

That shot of the AT-ACT's left cheek cannon taking that hit and it actually seemingly being damaging?  I loved that.  I love seeing a different way to take things on like that.
