The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILER FREE)
« on: December 16, 2015, 08:04 PM »
That's a LOT of black stormies to piss off either racist people or fans who didn't realize they weren't clones.

I like to think it made some white trash guy's head implode though.

My gf's boys have basically become my own, and the youngest is now picking colleges to go an play ball at. :)  The older boy is going to be a senior at college next year.  Pretty nutty. 

Gf still could give a **** about Star Wars tho!

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: The Phantom Menace: Was it That Bad?

Gungan should've had no understandable dialogue.  Chewbacca didn't and was an effective 1A type main character.  Throw in subtitles and context/reaction and the Gungans overall become more tolerable.

That said, making them a known species would've been interesting and perhaps more effective as well.  Sure it'd likely have pissed on some EU but so be it.

Another new pic.  A worker figure of some sort?  Hmm.  Interesting.  Looks perfectly at home in any local cantina too. ;D

Love the line expanding to more unmasked characters.  It seems like the story is expanding too.  I'd like to see it condensed into some kind of book at some point.  All the background on the toys is vague at this point.  Not very structured.

Yeah I wouldn't count on that honestly.  :-X

Caved.  $23.99 shipped.  About as good as I was gonna get, so yeah.

I liked the guy shutting the display case carefully, then screaming "awesome" to the kids.

Not really a rumor now I guess but Hasbro teased, via twitter, a TFA C-3PO figure. :)



I think 3PO killed the red 3PO from hoth, and took that arm.  Scandalous.

Yeah, the Sabotage had to do with Kirk stealing his step dad's classic car and destroying it because he was an immense **** as a child I guess, but it was ok in that film...  It looks interesting.  I liked both the previous movies enough though.  The first was great I thought, and the 2nd one was ok despite many plotholes.  It was still just fun to watch.  Nothing intellectual to it.

Then again I never considered the previous Trek movies too "deep" either. 

I enjoyed the first one a lot though, and actually my GF did too, which I was kind of shocked.  She hates Star Trek generally.

My buddy sent me that this weekend and yeah, too funny.  Just needed some complaining about the figures mixed in and it'd have been extra creepy.  Hell, the "I have 3, one to open, one to display, and one just in case"...  I've heard that verbatim before. :)

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2

I am anxious to get wv3.  Can't believe they're coming out this fast.

I was up at my WM today tho and wv1 is selling fairly well too now.  More Leia's than Luke CHEWIE or Vader ATM.

I was doing it from the toy show floor too after your message... Paid off though well.

Now bring on some new pre-orders.  Keep seeing teases on Instagram (because I guess China blocks FB?) and man, I'm just ready to pre-order already.  Guess he's working on articulated fingers for the Laurel suits going forward.  Fankly I'm ok with single-piece hands myself, but articulated hands, I'm ok with that too.

And I cannot wait for that Laurel Worker with big ass cargo box/packaging, and shovel.  I just love the thought put into it all.

So apparently now my Argus guys ARE in stock and shipping...  makes me wish I'd ordered a 3rd now. :P

It's a very Acid Rain Xmas at my house.  Well, it's a very hefty CC bill in January I guess actually.

Btw the heads don't swap on the Stormtroopers.  Very different neck pegs. 

Honestly I don't see all the hooplah over the paint though.  If that's the worst thing being complained about, it's so minor IMO.

I'm biding my time.  I'm not going to die if I don't get it, but I'd like one.
