Other Toy Lines / Re: Acid Rain - by Ori Toy
« on: July 22, 2016, 06:05 PM »
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.

Guess the Vader Helmet wasn't easy to scan...  The team felt really inspired by the Figure Photography Contest they ran, and I can see why.  Some of that stuff was insane.  Some of it used Galactic Trading Post "Space Walls" too for hyper realism I noticed.  :P

New metal helmets coming...  Sabine & Vader from Rebels (stylized so Vader looks all McQuarrie-ish) and Boussh/Boba helmets.  I'm kinda into these I think.

The Lando Figure's cape looks pretty intricate.  The higher the scale on that material, the tougher that job would get I think.

6" Tusken Raider!

Looks awesome, and will have interchangeable staff blades so you can make different gaffi sticks it appears. :)
