Nor do I, but I'm going to look that up now.

I've gotten hooked on some "mech" suit models of late, and more, and so I actually just pre-ordered something that features support gear and more (and all in a scale I love).

Pricey but worth it.

Yeah I'm not ready to say this is that assortment, but I was thinking similarly that this is it.  It deflates the Fig w/vehicle anticipation for sure.  I'd like to see that back in some way.  :-\

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic Con 2014

People would shart immediately at the price I'm afraid.

I have the Hot Toys Snap Kits Aliens figures, and they're awesome, but they're anything but toys too in a way.  The Aliens are sturdy in that line...  In the previous line though (AvP) they're pretty unstable and take some extra effort to make as such.

The Marines are poseable, yet not...

It'd be a heavily mixed bag of hyper detail, and hyper fragility.  I'd be into it because HT probably wouldn't go ape**** on the quantity of figures they made.  So the price would be an afterthought to me then.  I'd buy them but I know people would be po'd about one flaw or another since I've found HT stuff to be "fragile" and pricey.  Even their 1/6 seem a touch more fragile than even SS stuff which is definitely not kid friendly at all.

I'm in though on that idea.

Sans removable helmet (you know my opinions there Matt), yes.

The GI JOe wrists and hips make it Disco Vader.

Hmmm, guarantees your kid the inquisitor or the main hero.  Smart move I suppose on sets like that, for gift givers.

I'm really looking forward to the Phantom.  It looks actually pretty proportional.  I'm shocked.  It and the Ghost just reinforce how poorly handled the ship from Clone Wars ultimately was.  Built-in money maker just never made...  though it didn't have a tiny "scout" ship, which is

mo money, mo money, mo money!

Honestly given the images I've seen of it, I really pray the vintage mold is non-existant because the redesigned elements of the cartoon's ship are so much cooler and in line with some past precedent too (the little ball turret guns up front ala the AT-TE, etc.).

It's also a little more angular, less "rounded" at the front...  I'd dig seeing something new really.  Vintage stormie transports are a dime a dozen too.  :-\

TIE Pilot's a solid choice going forward.  Who doesn't love those guys?  Great costumes.  Some of the best in the OT.

Like that R5 paintjob.  That thing sticks out and looks good to me. 

Black Series cards are turd, no matter what way you slice it.  I thought for a while, "Eh, they're unique and different", but nah...  They're turd.

Rebelscum heavily hinted that, during their preview of Hasbro's booth at SDCC this evening, they saw the Imperial Troop Transport...

Sooooooooo, yeah I'm officially now giddy to see what they saw.

maybe these will help with that?  I think with Rebels the action figure cranking is coming regardless.  There's something new supporting it again, and that always helps.

I think I have every piece at this point...  I'm not real anal about it, but it's kind of neat to know.  It wasn't that expensive IMO, for what you get...  Figure a basic figure is $10, and if you have a friend going often it works out ok...  Shipping would hurt but my local buddy was my drug mule on these, and he brought me back a ton of droids ultimately.

The two packs were less than $10-per, so for all that droid fodder, I was pretty happy.  I even have some duplicate parts because I wanted something like a solid blue R2 or something like that.

I NEED TOYS!!!!!!!!!!!!  >:(

12" Figures / SS 1/6 TIE Pilot

And another 1/6 Imperial Trooper teased today...  Now the TIE Pilot, which is must-have to me, is being teased.  I may order this fellow out of the gate.  :)

Frankly, unless the SS one is vastly superior, I love the Hasbro one and I'd be going that option.  It's cheap, but was scaled pretty spot-on (despite for years the 4" one being way too large).

I've told myself I'd only buy Bossk and "Militaries" figures from Sideshow, and then barely any PT stuff...  all OT.

Sideshow is making me think I need to reconsider that because I can't afford even all the OT stuff they're putting out, as great as it looks.  There's just tons of it!
