Other Toy Lines / Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines - by Hiya Toy

You can get them on BlackSheepToys eBay store too, but beyond those two places I've never seen them anywhere else.

Might I add, the aliens all come with eggs, a nice sizable base that looks like grated deck plating, and a face hugger...  You seriously can't beat stuff like that.  Those are sweet accessories to pack in with an alien and similar to how Microman's alien figures were done.  No chestbursters is all. :(

Voted but I honestly don't care which Marines they make, just make some f'n Marines! :)

And again, I cannot recommend people get the Aliens enough...  Get them, have them hanging in your Cantina or whatnot.  Let them stalk your figures.

Often times, with companies like that, you can contact them directly and they'll send a replacement.  Just a heads up.

Assuming this all pans out as said, I've ordered enough of the Wave 7 individuals I'm splitting with a local that it'll work out fine for us...  Either I'll order a case of 8 and just be done, or individuals, or whatever.  I'm not terribly concerned either way, but the 8 case breakdown is total ass.

If it's to fix it, great...

Wave 8's still far more important to me, with Mosep and Han Carbo.  I'll take the Clones and spread 'em around I guess.

Saw a possible MkI Speeder variant (The Raptor) sporting some big ass guns on top...  Not sure I'm down with this.  I have one MkI, and while it's neat and on a bit more affordable side as far as these go, it's also small and features a lot less "fun" than the big mofos.

I'm glad I have one, but variants would be hard for me to support unless it's something significant.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One

It's been fun reading people's impressions of the concept art Iger showed...  "There's no X-Wings!  It's clearly not X-Wing Rogues and something different!"

Or, ya know, they fight outside their ships and stuff too, like they did in comics, novels, and games.   :-X

Which it very well could be anything else too, but just sayin' the name certainly makes one assume it'll be the elite pilots doing something.  2 hours of flight would be kind of a weird film though.

I think fans are in for MAJOR bitch-fests online because this is gonna be boom boom boom type of distribution, nothing like we've ever experienced with Star Wars as a toy line, ever really.

Star Wars is maybe unique too, in that the collecting world DEMANDS the most obscure of figures...  How slighted are they going to feel?  It's impossible for Hasbro to have some kind of dedicated line of obscurity for collectors, but collectors will assume "they can make anything, and just don't to piss us off and ruin the line!", as collectors tend to be.  I don't think super hero lines have had the level of obscurity to them that Star Wars does, and they're really the only lines to compare to since there seems to be new hero flicks out every year.

At this point I just don't see the time for Hasbro to delve into these deep character pools till the next blitz is on...  Getting main characters done nicely may be a stretch even, much less these obscure droids, aliens, and troopers that we all will want.  I don't see how it's possible really unless they don't distinguish lines and Star Wars in the toy aisle is kind of generic?  But the packaging is the advertising, so I don't see that happening either.

I agree completely, how they shake this stuff out is far more interesting to me than anything.  Uncharted waters, again.  I know what I want, but I'm not really banking on much of it in terms of scale or quality.   :-\  I'm just sort of rolling with the punches though. 

It doesn't take a crystal ball to predict a segment of the buying public will be vocally upset with whatever winds up happening though.   :-X

It's because of the Ebay CD's FFURG took them down, actually.  People were selling them, either via CD or alone, rather than sharing freely.  Became a real hassle.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII

Hmmm, tough to do two lines at once like that though, I'm afraid. 

I dig the timing though, and I think that kind of movie release date, for Star Wars, just makes more sense than December.  I hope they stick to it, ultimately.  I've not been wild about the December release.

All the story leaks and spoiler crap that is going to be flying around, with a movie every year, is going to be ridiculous I think.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One

I am intrigued for sure...  It really implies a Rebel Pilot storyline I'm guessing?  And a female as the lead is interesting too.  I'm all ears, and hope it nets me more Rebel Pilot figures...  if for no other reason than it'll annoy a certain segment of collectors to boot.  :D

But yeah, the title sure makes one think X-Wing Pilot...  Will spinoffs have a series all their own, like how Iron Man is his own series?  I'm wondering if they'll go that route or one-and-done type deals.

But yeah, dealing with common soldiers/pilots, I'd love stuff like that.  Dream come true if that's how they go.

Yes, it was in the show, but insanely briefly.  Kinda funny it got a toy.

Hiya posted another shot of the prototype Power Loader...  I'm already pondering how I could light an amber flasher on the top. :)

Hiya Toys is only making figures for the video game, which was a dud, but the toys are freakishly cool.

I got the Warrior and love it, and that review is definitely worth checking out if anyone's interested in buying modern Aliens figures...  I just am hoping if they get to Colonial Marine figures they'll be really nice.  Hiya's human figures are hit/miss.  Their aliens have been flawless though so far.

I am not really up on who all is making toys for the overall Alien umbrella?  There's Funko but it's all 4" retro stuff, then Hiya is all for just this video game in 4" scale.  I'm not up on other scales enough to know who's doing what.  I know there's a 6" or 7" line...  Is that it, barring high end stuff like busts and statues and whatnot?

There have been 3 companies make high-end 4" figures over the years, but at this point only Hiya's doing anything and it's kind of funny how they're doing some things from the movie, but via the video game.  You won't get Hicks, but you might get a Hicks-like guy.  ;D  I have a Hicks from Hot Toys and it'll be damn tough for them to beat those though, but their aliens are pretty damn awesome so maybe.  Like I say though, their human figures for other lines haven't always been perfect.
