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.

I was thinking that too...  Certainly possible.  It's like the Falcon was around at the dawn of civilization in Star Wars.

How do ya sell more different toys though!?  - George Lucas

Idej, are there dimensions out already?  8', you sure?  That's bigger than the Falcon and the ship looks on par or slightly smaller just eyeballing it.

I think toy lead-ups for Episode 7 will hit closer to its release...  November I could see a big toy blitz.  I could see an August release for a Rebels ship, but then again I think the timing doesn't bode well for its release at all.  Burns is saying he heard it is so I'm taking that as a solid rumor that it'll happen but none of the timing jives with anything, to me.

I suspect any Ghost ship is going to be grossly underscaled...  It's certainly bigger than I originally thought it was.  I doubt they even go BMF in terms of it size...  I'd guess smaller.  AT-TE, MTT...  I'd be shocked if they went as small as the Republic Shuttle though.  That's really a small toy that relied a lot on "opening up" to look bigger than it actually is.

Assuming it does come out, I'd think it'd have to come out late Summer.  Just my guess.  I suppose it could come out Spring, but it's not a very good toy buying season for something big.  Then again, maybe it won't be very big at all?  Maybe it'll be small, simplistic, designed for small hands and not collectors at all.  I'd not be shocked to see something along those lines.

Not to say I think they're "poor quality" items by any means but I think these Class-II are probably not on par in terms of complexity, compared to the old vehicles of similar size...  Like say the old Jedi Fighters and things.  I wouldn't personally say I'd compare 2 Class II ships to 1 bmf really...  Just personal experience they're way far apart.

I think if you took apart a "bmf" type vehicle you'd see its REALLY complex compared to even the old class II stuff which, by my eye, I can see corners cut on even these Rebels ships that didn't happen on old class II.  They're definitely better than 2013's midget ships tho but I see some of the recent vehicle tricks to save on tooling are being used.  Still look good to me but they're also open to more interpretation than say the cloud car or something.

Since Burns is saying he was told 2015 I believe that.  Fall maybe?  Be surprised if its earlier.  But The Ghost seems destined for next year at this point.  It may not be ATTE sized though...  Maybe it'll be fairly small?  Maybe it'll be the only big ship all year?

Price be damned, I may order that 2-pack of figures with the base.

I soooooo want that tank mech suit.

Disney Droids are, for some odd reason, some of my favorite pieces I have.  Love sneaking them in with random figures like they're following them around or something.

I'm doing a little digging into this story because it intrigues me so.  :-X

That expansion of Jedi Knight, Republic Commando, and KOTOR III really just sinks my heart.

Not to mention how GOOD 1313 was and then Lucas came in taking a massive **** upon it.  We might've gotten that, if not for Lucas himself.

But yeah, Jim Ward?  What a ******* ******* by that story, and I say that with complete sincerity.  I hate people who think they can do anything because they accomplished one thing in life.  Everyone in the world seems to think they can do other people's jobs...  This transcends this topic, but not the online world of Star Wars for certain.

The, "I know better than you" crowd, who've never worked in an industry, make me laugh my ass off.  Lots of these folks around.  ::)

The background on the line is that world war 2 didn't end and sort of continues in this futuristic "what if" scenario.  I was very interested till prices turned up and I almost gagged.  $20 for figures is even high but the vehicles floored me.  If these were in line with Star Wars in pricing I'd be jumping in I feel sure.  Even like $12 figures I'd give a go.  The tanks and things I can see $50-$60 but yikes.  I want but my want has limits.  If they get manufacturing support from a larger company maybe that'll help lower costs.  They're a pretty new company (I think).

I wanted to add though, I think that stuff's awesome...  That walker/tank in 2 pieces, my goodness I want that. :(

I'll promote the **** out of that photonovel.

This is mind blowing stuff...  I know a lot of people were like, "What are we gonna do now that Disney owns STar Wars!?  They're gonna ruin it!!!!!"

I read this though, and yeah, Lucas was doing a bang-up job ******** all over his own creation before Disney came along.  I'm glad he's out.  It can't get worse IMO.  It'll maybe be just as bad, but it can't get worse than stuff like Darth Icky.

The stickiest of the Darths.

JK and RC news hurt the most.  I thought you had mention of a sequal to X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and X-Wing: Alliance listed...  I'm almost glad there wasn't.  I'd have been on a flight to Jim Ward's house.

12" Figures / 1/6 Geonosian Battle Droid Sets
« on: February 19, 2014, 05:26 AM »
SS is pulling out all the stops with the Geonosian variation of the Battle Droids.  A 2-pack of troopers, and a Commander with a holographic Count Dooku stand that lights up?  $130 for each set, but 2 figures or a figure and a great accessory is pretty cheap for Sideshow stuff.

I was not going to get many PT army builders but these I may pick up eventually to compliment the few Clones I do pick up.

TCW steadily declined in ratings...  Cite what you want, it still did.  I'm not sure Rebels can do better than TCW did, it just has a home that's less likely to off it because its home is its parent company ultimately.

And I think a $100 tag's even optimistic given the MTT's cost, which wasn't very big in the BMF world...   :-\  Let's say it's BMF sized, which would make a darn nice Ghost I think...  I forget the last Falcon's price, but it was more than the AT-TE at the time, so I just cringe.

This is a show falling at a weird, weird time...  I am not counting on much obscurity being made from it, honestly.  I think obscurity may happen for "Troopers" types of figures, but stuff like Whorm Loathsome from TCW I think is a pipe dream for this show right now.  Depending upon how wildly popular it may or may not be...  It's all hinging on that right now, but big ticket anything I think has less a chance than ever of coming out till the new movies are here.
