The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The new TIE Fighters

I'm pretty sure in all tech junk on TIes they're not solar panels...  Iirc they're more like radiators.  I don't have any books handy to look tho.

Yeah...  I see that point, but hey, the price isn't bad on a per-figure basis, you can pre-order and forget...  I'm wondering if all these are destined for single figures too.  Kinda would've been nice to know that.  :-X  I haven't ordered it yet but I'm regularly tempted to do so.

Around me, Wave 1 is selling...  be it the lack of other stuff on the shelves at WM or whatever, but Wave 1 is down to 2 figures at my nearest Wally so that's good.  The general fervor to buy something Star Wars is maybe helping.

It's funny though that my K-Mart has restocked Wave 1 TFA figures 3 times or more now, but Wal-Mart and Target seem like they haven't done jack since Force Friday.  KM sold out, and just keeps putting out more, regularly.

When SS got the 12" license I was geeked to buy soldier figures...  Just stick with military stuff.  But again as others pointed out, prices killed it for me. 

I bought the last SS Vader, mostly because I wanted a nice "centerpiece" figure for my meager higher-end shelf, and I felt a SS Vader covered that nicely.  I got the Endor Rebs and the RFT, but really not much has tempted me enough to buy over the years at the costs involved...  Plus they went clone crazy for so long, I couldn't bite.  And they're all over the place on what they DO make...  Lots of missing characters, costumes, etc.  Not many Leia figures it seems, etc. 

I still love looking at it, and as Hasbro prices rise, I wish they'd take a page from SS actually, and start branching out to make a truly "premium" line...  Premium paint apps, articulation, accessories, and the extra stuff like posed hands and specific heads.  I'd pay $20 for a figure that delivered it all in one box.  A 4" ANH Han like the current ANH 12" Han?  You get the headset head, you get extra hands, you get a removable belt with a thigh strap and stuff, removable vest...  I'd be into that for $20.

At the same time though, while I'd love the 12" figure, the price kills me.  I just can't justify things I'd absolutely need to do the payment plan on or do without for quite a while.  Nothing I can do with kids, cars, etc.

Yeah I saw all the outrage on social media over this and couldn't understand why they're mad...  You pre-ordered, you're getting it...  does when really matter to you?  All the cool extra gear almost is making me want to order it actually.  I dig that heavy weapon on a stand, the riot gear, etc.

I don't want the snowtroopers particularly.  That's my buggaboo there.

Hmmm, thought the new X-Wings had BB8 type droids in the socket... not full size astromechs?

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*
