Hasbro's answer on "soft" guns was always that they had their own level of safety standards.  I always called BS on that though.  Annoying.

I'm gonna start tweeting how much I like GB2 now.  :-X  :-*

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 1

Yeah I think this is a decent option especially with the alternate ways to display Han.  Save time looking for the hot figure and just get them all.

There were so many mini-ships left to do in the planet series though...  Then they went to these.  I'm disappointed.

Oh like that Hank Williams Jr./Sr. Video...  Totally doable.

"I had part of a slinky.....  But I straightened it."

Neither would be on my personal list, but sure.  I'd put everyone and a litany of Clones ahead of them personally.  :-\

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

Wave 2 hit here in fairly solid numbers at K-mart actually and wound up selling out everywhere it hit.  I was a little surprised.  Wave 3 is hitting at a trickle, but it's hitting.  All I see hanging around KM now is an Anakin and an R2-D2 which I may pick up for in a Jedi Fighter or something.

Yeah, lots of detail there...  Guessing Yoda keeps, to himself, who he's communing with.  Surprised to here where all he's going and it seems like the series wraps up a lot of things with him leading into ROTS.

It looks like there's a lot of people rallying with the Emperor to go against the Jedi.  I kind of wondered about some of those species and where their loyalties ultimately lay.

I liked the appearance that they get back to a focus on the war...  I really REALLY hated how the show had basically gotten away from the main conflict of the era, especially in the last couple seasons.  It felt like after the Geonosis arc things really were focused on specific characters who seemed to have nothing to do with the overall war going on and that just was annoying to me.  Now, they seem like they're going to try somewhat to get back to that, and tie it into how the whole thing began with Dyas and everything.

I saw Yakface on twitter retweeted a translation of the Aurabesh page on Sifo Dyas that's in the trailer.  Pretty neat and something I would've totally been doing myself tonight. :P

It's interesting to see what he was up to though, and to see who the hell he was.

I like the new people too...  Daisy Dukes?  Eh, it's Atlanta...  It's hot...  I'm sure she either has, or picks up some pants for the winter.  It doesn't bother me (in any way  :D) really.

I can buy the nerd not knowing how to shoot...  Honestly, how many people have you met who are just inept at certain stuff, especially the maybe overly intelligent who lack common sense...  He yelled, they ignored, he tried to do it himself...  I mean, stuff like that doesn't bother me because people like that exist.  How he'd survive this long?  I guess Abraham or folks like him.  Took balls to tell Abraham, after killing the unkillable truck, that he's smarter and to do what he says, but yeah...  I dunno.  Not everyone is going to be Darryl or Rick, so there have to be Milton and Eugenes too I guess.

I liked the character development, or perhaps reinforcement in some cases, from this episode...  Rick, who people maybe were beginning to doubt, now shows you again why you shouldn't doubt him.  He kicks some biker douche's ass and kills him, all with what I assume are broken ribs at the very least.  Not shabby for a guy who just 2 weeks ago his kid was saying he was a loser and he didn't need him anymore...  Rick's still scary when Rick wishes to be.  I know some don't think that was important but I think it is.

Michonne bonding with Carl, that's good development...  Character relationships expanding and all that jazz.  Setting up a big reunion with Judith maybe too, which was nice. 

Tyrese/Abraham seem like they'd be an interesting relationship if they meet up...  Two big dudes, different personalities though.

The thing I found odd, and it's maybe just his personality, but Abraham trying to MAKE Glenn go with him...  how would that possibly work?  He'd never be into your crusade if you make him go, so what's the end-game there?

I haven't watched Talking Dead yet but I'm sure I missed something because every TD seems to point out some little detail I didn't catch.

I liked seeing Rick kind of "back" though.  At the very least he has his crap together a little more than he did.  Guys eating your canned chili will get you back into reality real quick.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!

Wow that's bigger than I thought it looked, but in the last video they did that cockpit's as roomy as the Falcon's which I figured it wasn't nearly that large from earlier images... 

So it's bigger than the Falcon.  I can't see Hasbro doing ANYTHING as big as the BMF, so this I would guess will almost surely be smaller than that ship was.  And if the MTT's any indication it'll be interesting to see what direction Hasbro chooses to go with the toy since price matters, but subject matter is a bigger player here.

I have to think they're playing their cards close to the vest to see how the show's launch goes.

Yeah, by far my least favorite realistic interpretation of a TCW character.  I felt the sculpt wasn't bad...  I think the last TVC Mace we got was the best likeness, but this wasn't bad.  The skin color seemed off to me by a lot though, and it just felt half-hearted with the logos missing and stuff.  I'd have dug it if the helmet included the detonator inside too, maybe some kind of TCW accessory to make you really feel the figure was special

He's been one of the easier Wave 3 figures to get, and he's not bad, but not great.  Just eh.  Fills a purpose I guess.  I'd have preferred young Ahsoka, personally, or even "adventure" Padme maybe.  Or Baby Boba.  Or a Death Watch Mandalorian.  Or a lot of other random important people.

Saw one for $59 tonight and man, I can't do it...  Half that, maybe.

I'm kind of in the same boat...  My buddy from here on the site (and here locally) goes all the time, and so he's my droid drug mule of sorts.  I think a 2-pack any time he's there is so cheap, why not just build another?

One of my new favs in my collection is a white R4 dome, blue body, white legs...  The contrasting colors are awesome.

Also I have an all solid blue R2 now, and man, it's a great way to get the R2-D2 dome without having any white there.  Very distinctly different from R2-D2...  I'm wondering though, a white bodied R2 with solid blue legs may look pretty awesome too.

The color contrasts really can make for some great background droids though.  Droid Factory at WDW is really the 2nd coolest thing they've done...  The Starspeeder 1000 is still first in my world and I'd buy a repaint (Yellow, please!) of that beast in a heartbeat.

Dealer and Artists tables are selling out FAST, even with the show doubling in size...  Bigger size seems to mean the crowds are just bigger too, so if you're wanting a table get in on that action now!

Yeah I saw these too.  I'm so bummed planets are dead.  I don't like these little ships.  I do want the set of guards and gunners though.  Very nice.
