Ramsay is like Alex in Clockwork Orange...  Even kinda looks like Malcom McDowel.

I was fortunate to have a friend who goes to WDW like I go to the store, so he became my droid drug mule kinda.  :-\

Hoping to do similar with wave 2, though I'm kinda hoping this rumor about a 3rd wave is false, or at least the details are, haha.  It'd be tough to track down those.  My friends who went to CA did pick up 3 of the Wave 2 droids for me though and they're the ones I wanted the most at least.

I'm hoping to get the rest though, or most of the rest at least...  A few of those are kind of redundant decos.

I think Jman meant just the Alien itself sold in groups from China, but yeah those ones seemed to be the ones that flourished on the Asian market.  I got most of mine there, actually, though the dude in the space suit never saw the backdoor sales from China like that, and he's who I'd have bought probably a dozen of if I had seen him cheap like that.  Love Kane in the space suit!  He looks good even in modern scenes unmodified.

Trying to order now. :)  Getting the free shipping can be so confusing at times, but done and done. :)  2x new dudes, except Han I got 3.

The title's a mouthful, but I wanted to start a thread about the Calender Hasbro sent out to media outlets (including us), and the idea behind it.  Hasbro wanted fans to take a look back, day-by-day, at figures from the line's long history, as they count down the days to September 4th and The Force Awakens toys.  Click the image below and check out the story. :)

Clicky To Check Out!

The calender is pretty neat, and features a different toy on every day.  Vintage included, and lots of different things.  Some I'd not thought about in a long time actually.

It's an interesting little promo item and we took a few pictures to check out if you're interested.  I particularly enjoyed the Ralph McQuarrie birthday page. :)

And yes, of course Jedi Defender's favorite all-time figure made it into the photo shoot.  He just was running by anyway.  ::)

Also, we can use this thread to maybe look back on the line and some of our favorite things.  Figures or whatever that we maybe haven't thought about in a while?

One that came to my mind while trying to snap a few pictures was Pote Snitkin...  Highlighy underrated figure, kind of forgotten in a weird way.  The sculpting on him is really ahead of its time, for a POTF2 figure.  Something about it still just really holds up against the best looking current figures. 

I'm always up for upgrades on figures that aren't as poseable, but really Pote I'm ok with as he is too.  He's just a nice looking figure, and had some pretty cool gear to boot!  Loved that big mace type blade thing he had.

If you hit us up on social media on this topic, feel free to use #ForceFridayCountdown in your post as fans gear up for The Force Awakens toys!

Only Dorkside and maybe one other place has put them up yet...  Patience on it Dave, I think it'll be soon on the other places like EE and BBTS.  I'm waiting (hoping) for singles to go up soon as I'd like to just pick up what I want, and leave it at that.

Have a friend at SWW, so we'll see...  Not so sure I'm biting on all that, but we'll see I guess.  I got the main 3 I was interested in, which is awesome, but a 3rd wave that fast would be mind-numbing.  ::)

Sorry about your dog IAS, and I know how that feeling is.  It can change though over time.  It never is easy though.

That's a nice deal unless the paintjob sucks.

I'd just be happy seeing them limp it along long enough to round out the stuff I'd like from the first 3 films and kill it with a ton of stuff from the new movie.

I'm not sure how I'd feel about the 5 POA's creeping in though.  :-\

I want him to have a hover-scooter too, like he would use at a futuristic Wal-Mart.

I like that he's so fat he squints, like that guy I always see shopping here.


I'm interested, for sure. :)

I know everyone kinda made fun of these, but here's a pisser for ya...  They're sold out here locally at Target, and K-Mart has gone through 2 cases and on its 3rd, and I live in the middle of nowhere.

I think if you had a kid, and your kid wanted some mains in a box, this isn't as bad an idea as folks were thinking.  I think if you're us, it's lame.

So, like, is that morbidly obese Bossk up there?

"Bossk Hogg", per se?

More toys!  :)

Or probably not.  :(
