The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2016 - 6" Black Series

That's a man, baby!

Anyone think somewhere the sculptor of that is sitting alone with a solitary tear running down his cheek over all the berating his work is taking tonight?

I have to say I find the softgoods ugly too.  A skirt bit I'd get but the whole outfit?  Meh.  Same on Luke's robe.  Why?  I thought hyper detailed sculpts were part of the point of the 6" line?

It's all in how you look at it.  Looks like Rogue One has a blitz of toys planned so there is that. 3.75" is continuing at least... Whether that makes you happy depends on the individual I guess.  It makes me happy.

I've got a lot to be happy about this year in and out it SW collecting I figure.

I'd hope for a Han as well.  This is also a better venue for Leia.  I'm wondering if the repacks could branch out to some more desirable ones.

According to SWAN, this line is continuing as is for now, and will include Phasma and Asty (Giggity! New alien dome!)

I'm liking these.  :-\

Other Collectibles / Star Wars Stools

Weird I know, but shop stools with Star Wars characters are half off half off at Kmart.  I think these first showed at Pep Boys but Kmart got some for Xmas.  There are Vader, Boba, Stormtrooper, and a generic Star Wars logo.  My store only had Boba but somehow I got a Vader today after placing an order online and store pickup.  $15 for a stool for ur garage or basement is kinda good anyway.  The fact it's Star Wars is just more dead.

Now those ones are bad.  I've got quite a few and never saw any that even had the eyes misapplied.

Just like to add that it almost looks like her glasses are movable or something.  If so, +5 for coolness.

Technically he's still Jabba's gambling droid too. :)

I want a 2nd of the set, actually, for that purpose.  I'll figure something out with part swapping with other BAD's then.

Ah, good point on BB8 Jeff.  I figured it's the 3-pack droid, not the better Falcon one.  I really want that one, so that's a plus too.  Helps sooth the pain of buying the pack I'll inevitably feel.  My brother I know wanted a Rey and Finn head for Joe customs too, so there's that.  It'll even out for me ultimately.

And hey, it's $19.99 and not $24.99 which I think BPs were up to last I recall.

Maz looks like she has an impact gun.  She must really like Chewbacca if she's helping him remove lugnuts on the Falcon.

Hmmm yeah sticking her in a box O junk kinda blows.  May see if my brother wants the others for fodder since I got them long ago.  Basically this is a $20 5POA fig with a cool accessory... For most of us anyway. 

Wonder if this will be exclusive or everywhere?

The small presence is for the sites... I'm sure in the important meetings, with retailers/buyers, things are different.  They always are.  But just as they go to USA Today when they really want publicity, they also know giving too much to the collector sites is sort of a hodgepodge of "publicity" (some good, and some [most] bad), and not worth their time to do it.

You'll get a lot of lips on ******** this time of year, but in a week it's back to the same ole same ole.  Why bother with the small audiences when you can just give it to USA Today, who are ecstatic to take it, and promote it to a vastly larger (and less biased) audience? 

The "small presence" thing is likely to continue for a long while I'd imagine.

And not worth $9.99. :P

I'm still bumming over that thing...  Just a miserable piece.  That whole line of vehicles bummed me out.  They did much better on TFA's lineup IMO, but had a lot of potential with the Rebels vehicles.

I find the TIE ok from the line, but not amazing. 

People who want a TIE Fighter should just buy the POTF2 version...  Looks about scaled right, and features the printed solar panels, etc.  I see a lot of demand for one.  Color's off, but that's not unheard of on all their TIE Fighters ultimately.

I was pondering picking up one and repainting it actually.  It'd make a nice precursor TIE, now that "small wing" TIE's are a thing.

I've lol'd at everyone complaining about that.  The figure is perfect imo.  It's among my favs in a while.

I'm not a big mint fan so I hate them but I always alert my coworkers.  One in particular loves them.
