Of COURSE Disney and EE are comparable...  Of course.  :-X

Yeah the value stuff seems to be much more in-scale with very small figures.  That's why the Falcon was painted up and used as a miniatures battles piece for tabletop gaming...  Cool though that people find a use for them like that.

"Why'd they have to repaint them!?  Now I have to buy them!"

"Why'd they not repaint them!?  I want something different!"


Seriously though, I like things I can pass on easily enough without it being just different for the sake of being slightly different.  I was always wishy washy on the repaint waves of the good ole days, though I still dig that Imperial Gunner repaint as a unique Impy trooper type.

Yeah mine came off easily...  Since it's held in with tension perhaps it was just stiff on yours CHEWIE.  It's now got a gaping hole in it, but thankfully it's removable so the hole gets no real gripe from me.

I thought these had Imp logos on them somewhere in the show? 

Anyway, this was one of the only things I grabbed at MM, as I was debating this being readily available since it's part of an assortment with repacks and such...  I've gotten quite a few Ezra bikes to repaint already when I've had coupons and things, so I wasn't terribly concerned, but I still wanted a nice factory one. :)

Last one was around $30...  if the toy gods are smiling upon us, this one will be as well.


Aroud me some simply haven't stocked them.  Two on the same highway as the one that did, maybe a half hour between first to last.  I'm chalking it up to some stores not carrying them or not yet.

It's also interesting that the two without had clearanced the old ones as low as $5.  The one that got them didn't clearance tbs 4" at all.

Awesome Paul and I hope it goes smashingly because that's one kickass toy line!

Yeah if buy these by the case given the opportunity and like a minimum of 2 cases worth.

I'd love to see the rest of the main cast done this way at least...  Several R1 waves would be nice.

This is gonna hurt.  Seriously all 4 I want quite a few.

Xmas gift for kids...  Not that everyone seems to get that.

That's true.  It's odd leaving things off rogue Friday but there's holidays to deal with too.

OK so as we promo'd on the front page, Galactic Trading Post put up pre-orders for their 3.75" Space Wall sets!  First foray into that scale for them, but I can only imagine it's going to be as good as the 1/12 walls have been.  Love mine, even for 3.75" displaying.

3.75" Space Walls 7-Pc Set $55 Pre-Order...  Or Pre-Order 2 Sets & Get Support Beam Set Free + (Free Support Set is sold out or taken down for some reason) 8% off the pre-order price down to $50.50!

3.75" Hallway Support Beam Set (2 beams in a set) $12.50 ea

Also listed as coming soon is a 3.75" Accessory Set, which we're guessing are the 2 cargo boxes and barrels that were made for the 1/12 sets, however no pre-order on those yet.

I'm pre-ordering a couple sets myself, as I really enjoy having backdrops for figures, even if just on my desk to goof around posing my figures while I work or whatever.  I also think I'm going to pick up enough to do a complete backdrop for my Imperial shelf I think, once I get a solid measurement guesstimate here.

The "Support Beam" sets are as the name suggets, a decorative way to keep the walls upright...  I'm guessing those are more a necessity in this scale than the 1/12 sets which I feel sure were thicker, and thus sturdier.  My 1/12's stand pretty well without tape but I can see how they'd topple easily especially if the shelf they're on isn't perfectly level.

So, anyway, the pre-order page is up for the two options!  Order up!  I was pleased enough with the 1/12 sets, and since they sell out fast (at least twice now), that I'm going to order a couple of these wall sets now "sight unseen" I think.

I've been snapping some pics of mine.  Just have had time to get them set up with 6" and 3.75" figures...  They're awesome.

To coincide with #GoRogue Friday though, GTP has revealed new 1/12 Space Wall additions...

1/12 Space Walls Blast Door Pre-Order Special $37.50!

1/12 Space Walls Deluxe Blast Door Pre-Order $67.50

The Deluxe has extra control panels on the sides, they're painted (not LED lighted), but still looks cool.  I'm going to order the less deluxe one that still looks all kinda badass to me.

Click to pre-order this stuff!  Shipping dates vary I've noticed depending on manufacturing issues or shipping delays and such.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Galactic Trading Post 1/6 Items
« on: September 30, 2016, 09:46 PM »
Their 1/12 Space Walls have done well and so Galactic Trading Post is expanding to other scales...

To coincide with #GoRogue Friday, they're unveiling their first 1/6 items...

1/6 Scale "Space Wall" 4 Pc Light-Up set, for $195 Pre-Order


1/6 Opening Cargo Box w/Trays $55 ea or 2/$45 ea Pre-Order

Prices being what they are, you'd expect high quality.  Comparatively speaking, you'll get it if they're anything like the 1/12 scale Space Walls...  High quality ABS plastic, injection molded, superior detail...  No resin garage kits here, which can be good but which are never the same as steel tooled molds.

Given what people pay for 1/6 scale figures, I get that quality is paramount here...  The description of those space walls alone is intriguing.  LED light panels and a blinking light control panel.  Slick stuff it seems.  I'm anxious to see these in person myself, or quality production images.
