The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Star Wars: 1313 - The Figures
« on: June 1, 2012, 01:25 PM »
This seems like it's going to have a bit of a push to it that goes beyond just the game.  Maybe a book or something, maybe a bit more.  There's already speculation on figures.

Since so little is known about the game right now, I thought I'd just start a thread for any speculation.

The "Imperial Gunship" type thing looks cool but quite sizable...  Not counting on that happening.  One never knows though, I guess.

K-Mart gets an exclusive, again, that you may or may not care about...

First,
Sandtroopers.com has the scoop on this, so go check it out!  Clicky the image to see it.

But second...  Yeah, you own this right?  Well, not really...  This is the AT-ST repaint, at least it seems anyway, attempting to recreate the walker that Chewie and his little dingleberries attempt to commandeer for the Rebel Alliance!

So assuming it's not particularly cheap, but not particularly expensive, where does this fit in your collecting world?

For me, this is an easy purchase...  I have literally a stack of AT-ST's from Wal-Mart...  I'm semi-hopeful they're going to fix the walking joints so that they're less prone to cracking, but that'll only be known with time and opening one up.  What I'm more geeked about is the deco.  The original's deco was plain which I liked for army building.  The 2nd one was an inaccurate Hoth one since that walker has significant differences in its design.

This one though, I like that they're trying to give fans the specific walker with the damage on the nose, which served as the life-size prop/set piece, which Chewie and the Ewok hijackers take.  :)  It'll be THE walker I display since I want to display it specifically with its appropriate Ewoks and Chewbacca.  Might even have it standing over a destroyed one of the Wal-Mart walkers.

This is far cooler than the B-Wing, or TRU's half-assed Y-Wing.  I think this is, somewhat shockingly, K-Mart for the win.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Clone Wars Wave 28 (2012 Wave 3)
« on: April 17, 2012, 02:02 AM »
These are in stock at Brian's Toys now if you want to order a set and avoid buying a full case, and looking around for them at retail wasting gas.

Announcements / JD Give Away - The Book Of Elizabeth
« on: April 3, 2012, 02:18 PM »
Our own forumite, and another (wow) published author among our community, was kind enough to donate TWO copies of his book The Book Of Elizabeth as prizes to our readers on the site.

We're going to do something different with this contest though.  Basically there are no rules to enter as we're going to draw names from a pool of past entries into contests who did not win!  So sit back, check out Darby's blog of course, relax, and wait to see if you won or not, as we will notify you via PM when you do (probably asking for your contact info)!

Obviously a big thanks should go to Darby for donating two copies.  It's always great to see the accomplishments of our forumites!

12" Figures / 1/6 Tusken Raider
« on: March 29, 2012, 08:57 PM »
Nice to see another type of character get the 12" treatment from Sideshow...  I was kind of tiring on Clones there.  The Sandperson looks good.  I like Hasbro's though, and think it was one of their better figures.  It'll be interesting to see how much better SS can do, since they almost always do.

Joe Defender / Question Regarding Action Man/Z Force
« on: March 28, 2012, 01:21 PM »
I'm curious, as I really don't know much about them, but are the 3.75" Z Force/Action Man/British GI Joes readily available for decent prices?  I am having trouble finding much on Ebay, but what I do find tends to be on the cheaper side...  I'm kind of curious more about lots of loose figures though, rather than one here or there.

And obviously would much prefer buying here than overseas.  :-\

Doesn't seem like many folks here are interested in them at all.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Keeping Cardbacks
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:16 PM »
Anyone actually keeping the cardbacks to the Vintage Collection, but not keeping figures carded?

Just curious if that's something any/everyone considered other than myself...  I just dug out my original VOTC, VTSC, etc. cards too...  Together, they're neat looking with all these new figures.

Gentle Giant / GG Jumbo Vintage Death Star Droid
« on: March 13, 2012, 11:37 PM »
They're cranking these out pretty well...  :)


Clicky To Pre-Order

Love these, but can't jump into them.  I'll stick with original little guys, but yeah these are great. :)

After tinkering around with some headswapping, I thought I'd start a thread on it that we can have handy for those curious about what heads work with what figures, and which maybe barely do, perhaps with only slight modification.

I'm not entirely sure how to do this thread, actually...  if I should just update the first or second post with the headswaps that work, as they're submitted, or what we'll do, but we're going to give this a whirl as something to have handy here as new figures come out.

I'm going to ONLY include heads that need slight, or no modifications...  This is less a thread for customizing, and more a thread for swaps that aren't terribly hard for anyone to do, or more for heads that require zero modification at all.

Base Figure:                                               Compatible Head & Details:
-2003 Saga Captain Antilles                         -2010 Vintage Endor Rebel (No Modification)

-2010 Vintage Endor Rebel                          -2003 Saga Capt. Antilles
                                                                 (Requires slight filling of the head for
                                                                 fit)
                                                                 -Build-A-Droid Bespin Guard
                                                                 (Requires painting, or swap to the
                                                                 Black Variation Trooper)

-BAD Hoth Rebel Body                                -Vint. Rebel Fleet Trooper
                                                                -

-Vint. Rebel Fleet Trooper                           -BAD Hoth Rebels
                                                                (All Variations)
                                                                -

-Vint. Endor Capture Luke                           -Vint. Deleted Scene Luke

-Vint. Deleted Scene Luke                           -Vint. Endor Capture Luke

This is a work in progress, and will only get my attention when I have the time, which isn't often these days, but I'm just giving fair warning, and don't be offended if I don't get to your suggestions right away. :)  I'll try to stay on this as much as possible.

Feedback / tmanthegreat's feedback
« on: February 27, 2012, 09:53 PM »
Tmanthegreat is a buddy of mine from 1:18 military collecting and he JUST helped me out with getting an animated Bossk for my Bossk focus.  Yes, Bossk's Bungalow is a little more complete today.

Thanks Tristan, I appreciate it bud!

Joe Defender / G.I. Joe Toy Fair
« on: February 11, 2012, 02:25 PM »
I'm following the Imperial Holocron Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/impholocron) for news/info on the Joe line from the Toy Fair presentation...  Eric was kind enough to let me use his info, so head there to check out more as it comes in and follow him if you're on Twitter (And me too @Jesse_James77 & @JediDefender)!  I'll update as we go here.

-50 Figures From Retaliation, 9 Vehicles, CC Exclusives...  Not a shabby year for Joe fans!

-Wave 2, Firefly, Flint, Snake Eyes & Stormshadow (who'da thunk it!?), & Roadblock.

Methinks Roadblock might be a popular guy with Hasbro this year.

-Bruce "Joe Colton" Willis & Lady Jaye... also Alley Viper, Cyber Ninja, & Dragon Ninja in Wave 3.

Hasbro loves them Ninjas.  I'm giddy!  :)  Can't wait to see both, and Flint...  and Firefly...  F it, I like the line in general.

-Wave 4, Jinx & Blind Master.

-Wave 5 Crimson Guard & Night Viper?  Sweet!

They're really revealing some pretty far ahead waves it seems.  What'll be left for later shows?  Blowing their Joe wad early.

Make sure you follow @ImpHolocron!  E's the man!

Gentle Giant / 2012 PG Rebel Fleet Trooper Mini-Bust
« on: February 11, 2012, 12:18 AM »


As with all GG stuff I'm interested but cannot afford to pick up yet another hobby...  I really am tempted on this one though.  I tend to pick up all things RFT, and GG's will probably be pretty outstanding.  :-\

Must...  resist...  uh what the hell, I may try tracking this down.

LEGO / Lego Mini Planet/Ship/Figure Sets
« on: January 4, 2012, 07:49 PM »
These are available on Lego Shop for $9.99, and some sweet pics of Series 1!

Given Hasbro's F-You to collectors this year, I'm even more interested in these and less interested in Hasbro product, so I'm definitely going to collect this small sub-line.  It's too cool to pass up IMO.
