Their power loader is between $84 and $100-ish and so I'm assuming the APC won't be cheap.  We have more Hiya News in store too.  Ant got some time with their reps.

Yeah I hope that is a fan trailer, hehe.  That space ship scene looked like it was out of Wing Commander.  :-X

Voyager was eh.  I'm a Defiant guy myself.  The Enterprise E was interesting too, and had that DS9 Dominion War vibe to it.  I agree this has a Klingon look to it.

Yeah, OT fans have to be happy here and make the Jaina pick, for whatever reason she made it, not matter that much.  Still a lot of OT goodness coming.

The AT-ACT is definitely an interesting toy...  Much more "fun" to my eye than the Falcon was last year.  I think this is a great idea though.  Having it actually walk, interactive with a smart phone...  These are definitely good ideas.

It's smaller than the BAT-AT was, so there's bound to be some pissed folks, and NERF or nothing will piss of some people.  It's a toy though, meant to be a toy, and played with, and I'm just shocked they didn't incorporate NERF stuff earlier to be honest.  It's a huge toy line for them.

I agree on SDCC this year Darby, that it was a generally better one than last year.  They touched on SA 3.75" which they basically wouldn't last year.  They touched on being aware of distribution issues...  That's all you can hope for at a thing like this.

Where they end up with that, who knows, but they have a nice smattering of "everything" and at least they DID touch on 3.75" SA too, so you got a little for everyone there.

Again, the big reveal was clearly (for them anyway) the AT-ACT, but the online community probably poo poo'd it some.  To me it's a cool toy idea.  Once I see one in action, if it works well I may actually pick that up.  A walking AT-AT is cool no matter what.

This isn't Neca, this is Hiya, so 4" scale not 7" or whatever goofy scale Neca does...  They're like not quite 6" I've heard.  Cool looking.

This is much more up my alley.  And I mix it with Star Wars...  The Aliens are always running around kickin stormtrooper ass.

Hiya's 4" scale APC is winning the day at SDCC.

Our initial Acid Rain gallery is up and they didn't bring nearly as many prototypes with them this year.  They brought some samples of the new figures though...  Droids and other stuff.  They have a prototype of a variant of the MkI Speeder too which would probably be lower on my personal priority list.  They also have the Rescue Laurel variant pegged for next year which is kinda cool.

And the AMM exclusive figure is selling out every day and I'd say quantities are limited at this point for each day, which totally blows goats. :(

I can't say I care...  I'm sure there's some kind of pimping of this there, at the show, but ultimately it's all 6" so it's off my radar regardless.  Maybe it was tampered with, maybe it's just that final push like at election polls as the hour grows late.  Whatever, it's done, we're getting a ton of the OT stuff people wanted just by the presentation so if Jaina gets made, more power to...  uh...  whoever? 

Jacen not being made would be kinda dumb now, but hey, cool. :)

The AT-ACT "Pilot" appears to be the tanker in the hatch of the hover tank thing in the trailer...  Imperial "Tanker"?  I dunno.

A basic ARTICULATED figure is not $7.99 though, and these droids do fall into the more complex labor issue where they're put together and painted by hand...  All figures are painted by hand, but these paint jobs do look kind of elaborate.

IMHO they're just running on part as an (assumed) very small run exclusive that has a more complex mold used and some nice spiffy paint decos.  I don't LIKE $13 figures any more than anyone else though.  But that's today's price for quality, and all that stuff we've been over.

Now, if these were the R2 sculpt from the TFA 2-pack?  Yeah, that'd be some bull****.

I've only seen repacks as remnants that the wave WAS at a store, but then there's been people finding like a single set here or there, or part of a set (one or two of the new figures), and it's weird.  It's like WM might be breaking the cases up in similarly stupid fashion to how Target will break cases up between stores...  I guess if one does the other may too. 

I've not seen a single new one from this wave myself, but locals helped me get at least one full set, and a couple extra Han figures for the pieces.  I truly hope this improves since today Hasbro confirmed these are sticking with Wal-Mart.  I'd pay the $1 more if they went to TRU though, given TRU actually handles their exclusives decently.  Target is no better than WM to me, and less common here, so yeah, I'd take TRU at this point.  Or an online shared exclusive or something.  That'd suit me just fine too.
