TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)
« on: March 18, 2016, 02:13 AM »
One of the more fun episodes and had a lot of action aside from the main story.  While I can't say I like all the characters, I do dig Chopper a lot.


Ghost Han Transluscent figure.

$27 works for me to order up and call it a day. :)

What was left at the satellite place was kind of absurd.  It was like all they had was mitary grade stuff and a spear, haha.  No hunting rifles?  Lever action?  I don't think I've seen a .22 or a small gauge shotgun yet since this began yet you'd think these would be everywhere.  Hell, I know I have 3 .22's here.  Nobody has one anywhere on this show though.  Not as cool I guess. :(

Why was that group from last night out by themselves?  And then two more guys out and about?  Negans group seems better thought out than all this.

Fortunately for Ricks crew everyone who knows about them in Negans army is dead, unless that random car that popped up behind the bikers turns out to be more than a mistake on the show.

Sorry you had to put your dog down Rob.  I know that feeling all too well, and you just have to take your time.  Still think about so many pets I've had over the years. :(

What they've done so far is really nice...  Poe and Rey have been some of the bed figures I owned in a while.  FO trooper is pretty kick ass too.

I'd be happy with any resistance trooper that is just nicely articulated and has a removable bucket.  I like figures to have a counterpart.  The swappable head thing isn't a big deal to me.  Rey's was a nice touch though.

I counted at least 18 in the satellite place, not sure how many done got blowed up by Darryl, and last night was 7 (3 women, 4 men).

They sure sent ****** reinforcements...  2 guys?  Wow the cavalry is here.

It's really gotta hit Rick at this point that they can't possibly be sure they got everyone.  Maggie/Carol should confirm that with Rick despite that last dude's claim.  It'd be dumb to believe otherwise, but then again the attack was kind of ill-conceived anyway.

I think the 3.75" Black Series is the ONLY way we'd ever get Leia in this outfit from TFA, so I'm kinda glad she got a slot. I'm definitely glad she got a slot instead of a 3.75" SA rendition of a character like General Hux.

This I just completely disagree with, haha.  Sorry Pete...  I'd take SA Gen Hux over any Leia outside of an ANH resculpt, any day at this point.  Maybe not a "general duds" Leia from TFA maybe.  She was more important in that outfit I think, for that film.

I liked Ceremony Leia for what she was, but honestly I can't say I'd ever have cared if they never updated her at all either.  To me, SA slots are precious few right now, and Leia (old Leia) really sucks to get one.  That said, if it were her in her General's uniform and not this goofy outfit she wore briefly, I'd have much rather had THAT figure made, but at the same time, neither one is as interesting to me as an SA Resistance Trooper (so Stormies have some kinda targets to aim at poorly), or some random alien even from Maz's.  Or the cool droid there for that matter.

Han I love, but I'd take Han in any outfit from any film in the SA line.  Speaking of, was his coat blue in the movie?  I can't recall.  If it was, cool nod to the vinty figure.

The "new" droid is a cool deco, but man, $13 for a droid repaint blows.  That said, I like droid repaints and just paid $70 for 7 of them soooooo I guess I was already down that rabbit hole for the most part anyway.

On Phasma, I know she didn't do jack in the movie really, but neither did Boba Fett or Jango (much) so I just am glad to have a SA version of her because I really just want to be able to pose her like she IS doing cool ****.  I envision that she has done quite a bit, and figure she's a badass ultimately, and so getting that SA version (was gonna make one, now won't) is quite awesome to me.

TFA didn't have a TON of memorable figures oddly enough...  I'd like to have seen better articulation on some of the aliens we've gotten, but Maz's was kind of a brief alien bit that was glossed over.  Outside of Resistance Pilots/Troopers/officers, and First Order pilots/troopers/officers, I feel like there just is a few main guys in outfits to wish for with this quality level.

SA Poe in Resistance Pilot Ground duds, and then a "tortured" deco variant? :)  I'd buy both.  One can wish.  A SA Finn in trooper duds.  An SA General Leia would be cool for me, and an SA Han in the outfit he appeared in 90% of the film in would be amazingly awesome and my top TFA want I'm sure (saw the 5POA and it's not a bad sculpt but not poseable kills it for me).

So yeah...  Ceremony Leia, and this Leia, they just don't have the umph for $13, to me.  I think if Maz can get a figure, any Leia can...  Maz is an alien, sure, but at her character's core she seemed just like a little old lady too.  And hell, Hux as a basic 5POA figure?  Did kids really care about him either?  I think anything's possible, even in the "aimed at kids" line.

But an SA Hux...  That'd actually be kinda cool to me.  :-X

I'm kinda bummed Leia got a slot, simply because she's a figure I'd be perfectly happy with 5POA...

Han is welcome as is Phasma.  Cool stuff. :)

The Sequel Trilogy / So, Are Kanjiklub Literally Little Freaks?
« on: March 10, 2016, 10:05 PM »
Not talking midgets here, but Kanjiklub was referenced by Han as "Little freaks". 

Then the leader figure is diminutive (I don't have him, just know he is).  They're tough to really tell in the show they're in, but are they like pygmy type guys or what?

It was one of the funnier lines in the movie IMO and I kind of am curious about them now.  They just look like Asian guys from what I recall, but are they really tiny humans or what?

Yeah I'm kinda hoping for some Poe Boy army building. :)

They really went nuts here.  Next store up the road, not one TBS 3.75" figure at all.  They had a lot once, but all sold.

On a scale of 1-10 she's definitely closer to 10 than 1, but someone going nuts and labeling her a 32?  Come on man, have some dignity.

Plus sets up blaming Carol, yet again, for stuff...  She's kinda to blame for a LOT.  And she knows it.  Now her dicking around trying to save another (albeit unborn) kid, has backfired. 

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #2 - Han Solo!

It could be really awesome is all I'm saying...  And it could suck...  and it could be somewhere in between.

Don't stress about it.  It's less fun.
