The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 3?
« on: September 23, 2015, 06:57 PM »
I'm with Ant...  Much better than the 5 POA...  I'm also with Rob. I'm only a fan of super duper articulation on certain figures, and those figures do not include anyone in cloth for the most part unless the cloth can easily hide a joint like Pilot Obi-Wan back in the day.

Barrel chested Han looked like ass when he was a VTSC figure, and looks like ass again.  Too many repacks will nosedive this experiment I'm afraid.  Hopefully easy to order online and ship to store.   :-\  I really REALLY want all those TFA figures, and a couple stormtroopers and Poes.  Maybe even an extra Finn.

I'm not a fan of hip articulation on anyone but troopers though...  armored troopers.  Jedi to some degree because they look cool posed extreme, but I'm not a fan of it on "mains".  GI Joe articulation is like a microman at this point, but I don't collect Joes...  Hasbro's "SA" on Star Wars was more than sufficient to me, and appreciated.  This may be a way of them adding value though with the increased costs...  who knows.

No BB8 pack-in?  Boo.  Finn should have him. :)

Look at everything Rey has compared to the others...  yowza.  Extra head, backpack, etc.  Crazy.  THAT is a $13 figure folks!  :)

I'd dare say Poe's design looks much better than Finn's does...  At the hip joints there anyway.  But yeah I want me a couple Poe figs for customs.  Even at $13.  :-X

Han...  ugh.  Why not give us VOTC Han at least.  He's a far superior figure to the Endor Han they keep plopping out here and there.  Hell they didn't even include the better headsculpt from the mutli-pack during BAD.  His coat was the only thing I ever appreciated about him. :-\

Hell, throw us TBS Han Carbo with the vest and pistol belt...  it'd still be better.

You piqued my curiosity with that question Ant...  Didn't realize there was a bike possibly scaled to figures, but die-cast.  I'd be interested, as well.

I listened to Pens game tonight...  Was fun to do that while I cleaned up around the house a bit.  The game sounded boring as toast to watch though, but still fun for me anyway.

Play again tomorrow and it's to have a better line-up against Carolina. :)

I'm anxious to see Kessel's first outing with Crosby on the ice...  Heard from the new facilities for camp that he was absolutely flying around, and looked pretty deadly already.  Looking like he's with Crosby no matter what, as only the other lines saw shifting around.  Weird having Dupuis/Kunitz as potential 3rd line guys.  :-X

Just a lot of weirdness here overall as Sarge is here on a tryout and stuff...  Goofy times.  But yeah, thank god hockey is back.  And the Steelers thumping of the 49ers was fun yesterday too.  ;D  First time in a long time that all 3 teams in town had people interested on high levels.

Feel free to start one in the trades area Ant, I know I'd look at it.  I have extra Disney and BAD pieces...  I know we have more collectors of these here than maybe some do.  A fortunate bunch. :)

My WM had a full case of these, now only 3...  Could these actually move?  Shockingly mine are if not a little on the gradual side.  There is now an equal Wv8 to WM Wv1 ratio too.  Color me shocked.  If it helps me get WM Wv2, yay.  Also, all the Vaders... Gone.  Apparently people will pay $13 for the old Vader. :x

Some Alien figure set exclusive to nycc.  Let the anger begin.  I'm curious what it'll consist of.

Never had a problem with or sears.  I got some cheap 2-packs off their site a whole back before they sold out.  They free ship to store too.  *shrugs*

This is true.  I picked up 3 Bandai kits for sale prices since they're not allowed to sell them after 9/20.

bull**** on an epic level and yup, Disney lead by all accounts.

That was fast.  Poe looks snazzy.  I'm tempted.  :-X

Love all 3 and hope I can get a handful of troopers.  Don't intend to army build like I did for the OT, but squads would be neat.

I have like almost $300 now in points at Kmart so I will spend a bit there as $50 will expire anyway. 

I definitely am buying:

-Rey's Speeder...  That looks scaled right detailed and bitchin.  Love it!  It's the type of thing down the road I could see buying more on sale to repaint as it could fit in with the OT easily too.  But 9/4 I will own one and see if I can custom up Rey to be a better figure too.

-thug/scavenger & bb8 2-pack...  I want a BB8 and I think those aliens look neat enough as is.  Sure I want SA aliens but all 3 for $15 I won't bitch.

I'm not sure if I will buy the following all on the first day but some I think I will:

-BAW Res Trooper, Poe, & TIE Pilot...  Thinking 2 of the 3 I may be able to articulate myself easily enough and Poe may be a little more work but I dig Pilots enough I'd like to own the first one.

-BAW Flametrooper, Finn, Constable...  Again I think I can articulate two of them easily and the constable guy I'm ok buying as just an alien to put into any scene on my shelves.

-BAW these 3 I'm really debating but Rey, Stormtrooper, and Phasma...  Don't know if I want another Rey and don't know if I want too many stormtroopers to mess with.  Phasma is neat, so more likely for me to pick her up.

-Speederbike w/elite Trooper...  It just looks fun for me.  And again I think I can articulate him beyond what extra I think he already may have.

Then I have several items I'm debating and reluctant to buy full price:

-Snowspeeder...  I like this despite it being slightly small.  I would want to customize here though and that would hamper me wanting to pay $25-30 then.  You get a figure though, sooooo eh. 

-Sandspeeder...  Similar to above but slightly less interesting to me so much more likely a sale purchase.

-ATRT...  Not sure where my interest is here yet at all but more than likely sale. 

-Armored Poe...  I like the figure, but that price?  Nope.  Sale or bust.

Goofy things I want:

-Stormtrooper NERF gun to chase the cat around.

-RC BB8...  I'd buy either of these on sale ultimately. 


-XWing & TIE Fighter...  I wouldn't mind owning either one really but reality is neither impressed me scale wise and short of a steep and impressive discount I'm out on these.

And that is where I stand.  I will set a budget with my Kmart points and get some of the top of my list wants.  From there I will begin to make decisions based more on price/sale than anything.  I can wait this out and not care if I miss something at all really.

Oh and chopper/zeb will be an impulse buy but most likely a buy so I get Chopper finally.

Chewbacca looks a lil more tubby no?  Maybe not but I thought he looked maybe a little different.

Yeah Chopper/Zeb is only a must for me since I don't have Chopper yet...  Ahsoka/Vader WOULD be a must for me if it were realistic but it's not so meh.  Those others are all OT/PT and pretty meh except R2/3PO which was also not compelling enough to purchase due to a red arm.

Speaking of which, the 3PO's eyes didn't look too hot either in the pic, and I just feel like better sculpts of that figure exist anyway.

The BB8 set is an obvious must-buy IMO.  They may be my only request I put out to my friends going out on 9/4's midnight madness.  Love BB8 since the first time I saw him, and aliens are aliens.
