Other Collectibles / Re: Revoltech Star Wars Figures
« on: February 26, 2015, 01:14 AM »
I'm mostly curious to see how they simplly stack up next to TBS 6" figures since the scales are to be relatively the same.

I like this shot of the Stormtrooper next to the, well, Stormtrooper.  Shows the significant size differences.

There are areas where you can see both figures are flawed...  I think aesthetically speaking, even with the joints being somewhat visible more than the TBS figure, I tend to lean to the Revoltech figure's overall look.  I think it's more accurate looking. 

Proportionally speaking, I'd give a slight (very slight) edge to the TBS figure.  I think the articulation style on Revoltech elongates some of the limbs a tad more than I'd prefer, but it's so slight it's not a huge deal.

I think the TBS Trooper's blaster is more accurately scaled?  That's a tough one really, actually.

I love the color and "shine" to the Revoltech figure overall... Way cooler looking, and I think sculpt wise it's crisper and more accurate (especially the helmet).

He doesn't match that Vader's height well.  I wonder how he'd stack to a TBS Vader though?

He looks great next to Chewie, but he makes Luke look almost like a child, haha.  "Are you a hell of a lot too short to be out this late without a parent or guardian?"

Huh?  Cool.

but in the case of Kane's hit, they should seriously suspend the other guy for as long as Kane will be out (12 weeks I believe).

See they're here. :)

Thanks for sharing the news man, I'm really anxious to see 3PO compared to some TBS figures.  I've really been most curious how they compare side-by-side ultimately.  I think it'll be interesting to see if they're compatible at all.

These are so far above in quality though, it's unreal.  It makes me think a Revoltech Stormtrooper and a Hasbro one are going to amount to how a Hasbro 12" compares to a SS or HT 12" figure.

Anyone else find it odd they didn't include the TVC figure's mines with the 6" figure?

Lolz @ Hasbro trying to cut off bitching.  Never gonna happen.  That's cute that they tried though. :)

I know I'm waiting it out a lil while looking for something else I want to hit pre-order.  Hoping it hits soon before I have to commit to an order.  :-\

The Governor was almost normal compared to what Rick dealt with in the post-prison world...  His kid was going to be raped, he ate a guy's throat out to kill him, he then slaughtered said would-be perv (all while watching Michonne threatening to be raped and Darryl beat severely)...  Then he gets to Terminus and he sees clean cut dudes with a seemingly nice set-up, but they are eating people and stuff, slaughtering people that don't really help them in any way other than jagoff jerky.

Oh and those guys aren't done, wound up eating your buddy's leg who was just a good dude.

Then he found a "society" where people who are powerful are basically keeping slaves, abusing them, and raping them, because they're people too weak to defend themselves and they feel it's their right since they "keep them safe"...  those people then popped Beth in the head.

Rick was pretty F'd up when he ran the cop down.

I think Aaron is pretty lucky he's alive, haha.  He'd better thank Glenn at some point, and Michonne.  He owes both, a lot.  Darryl and Abraham would've probably let the Ricktatorship run wild on him, and just take your **** and keep on truckin'.

I didn't mind the episode... 

They've been building up the group's callous nature now for a while, so I felt like this was actually a long time coming where something good in your face may go unrecognized simply because the Ricktatorship is in full swing and he's among the most scarred mentally at this point.  It makes you a survivor, and nobody WANTS to question Rick, but clearly others have been there before and are wanting to help him make the right decisions.

Actually I really enjoyed the last line, from Carol, since he made a tough choice regarding her...  She backs him up.  I thought that was some pretty brilliant writing actually considering she didn't do jack all episode till that last line.

Yeah I don't know how you clear a route...  I can't even tell where the hell they are at this point.  What state?  Maybe they were just saying we came down Route 16, killed walkers along the way, no herds, it's clear...  Whereas Route 23 has a herd on it?  I almost looked up the routes just to see what they're like, or if they're even real.

The arrow straight road thing, again I have no clue where they are, hah.  I just know here isn't flat like that on many roads here.  A few, but not many.  I suppose it's possible...  It wasn't like they were on that straight stretch forever, but they did show in last week's that they were on a pretty damn straight road that went on for a while it seemed.

Regarding the post-rundown thing, I was about to question that too, but it seemed to me they broke through the herd they were in, and wound up out on the other side a good distance from the last of the zombies.  It looked like some were following them, others maybe were going to come but a ways down the road, and maybe then they got distracted by the flare that made Aaron freak?  I think that's plausible in that situation.  They did seem to break through the zombies and be some kind of distance away from the last of them.  So I can buy them not having a huge problem to deal with, but one that overwhelmed just basically 3 armed people and a tied up guy.  I am ok on that one.  Much more so than the road issue...  definitely more than the storm thing.

I'd say arms stuck in the hood, for no real reason (why was the hood gapped up that much to allow arms in but not enough to detatch?  Not really possible.) and them somehow obstructing the car from starting then...  I guess they were trying to imply they were in the serpentine belt, but again that hood would've been unlatched to allow those to jam in, then jam down into the serp belt.  THAT is some unbelievable stuff to me. :P

It'd have been much more likely they broke the radiator and the car just overheated and blew up, and that stopped them.

On the flare, yeah I assume it was a trouble thing, and the other group drove to it (since they, I guess, stopped when the herd appeared and they lost Rick because Glenn hasn't learned NOT to take his eyes off the road in the zombie apocalypse).  I am guessing Rick saw the general direction of the flare and they went in that general direction, and lucked into finding the group there all safe with Eric.  It seemed like that whole sequence just went entirely too quickly...  time constraints on the show and all?  Could've probably chopped out some morale dilemma junk and done better explaining how they get from A to B though.

I liked the episode well enough, but it was a lot more of last week, I felt...  At least in pace and whatnot.  Some zombie killing that was fun, some slow dialogue and debate, character development (and introduction)...  It was ok to me, but could've been done better.

The Dale nods were great...  That car would be among your worst choices in the zombie apocalypse though, IMO.  Gas hog.

I'm going to say yes, unless they're plotting a surprise for SDCC or something...  It's possible of course.  However, TFA opens in December, the holiday toy blitz tends to start anywhere from August to October...  Not a lot of gap in there for newness, ultimately.

I just bought...  (Clicky any image to buy...  You won't be bummed that you did.)

Agurts Infantry...  These have been out a while and I caved because he got me the free shipping, I'll admit it.  I've been impressed with reviews on him.

Buck's Team Leader Bob...  Why he's called Bob, I dunno, but he's cool.

Buck's Team Steel...  Why he's called Steel, again, no clue, but his briefcase of rockets is freakishly sci-fi-ish looking and fun.  I dig the hardware.

I'm not committed enough to go in and army build and stuff, but I can see a figure here and there being something I pick up an extra.  The price is meh, but import toys are import toys I guess.  I'm definitely more a vehicle guy, but the figures have roped me in more now.  They're really high quality.  And Hasbro's not selling me much these days, sooooo...

Grabbed a Gree at Target...  Weird seeing these 5POA Clone Wars figures, yet done in a realistic style to aim more at collectors and fit in with the line overall...  Just odd.  Oh and even more odd is having the bandolier as a separately sculpted piece.  Why?  Not that I'm complaining.  It's just odd.

Otherwise, I'm pretty pleased with Gree for what he is...  I plan to adjust him some so he's more poseable but he's not bad as-is.

Picked up the AT-DP Pilot this weekend...  I went to Target for reasons I can't explain, and they had one of him and Gree.  Easy purchase to make for customizing bits.

Here's an odd thing I noticed on the AT-DP guy though...  His helmet and head are actually two pieces.  The helmet's glued to the head is all.  Why bother with the extra labor step in there, and two molds?  It's possible they plan to re-use the helmet (or head/mask piece even) for something, but what?  And why?  It seems it'd be more logical to do just a single piece I'd think.

Anyway, the other thing I've noticed...  I never bought a single carded 5 POA figure yet, but upon seeing the AT-DP Pilot in person, my goodness are they ****** mold pulls.  There are ejection marks, seams...  It's really roughly done, and a sign of poorer craftsmanship in the realm of injection molding.  Nothing that I can't clean up, just odd as I never have seen a figure this rough looking.  Even the 2-Pack of the McIG Droid and Devronian guy guy seemed quite cleanly done.

Probably be a relatively easy 3D print, actually.  Just might cost $30 or more. :(

A year ago I would've too, but at the price for a new head, I'm out.  I love VOTC Chewbacca as well though.  I don't like the paint on this, nor the lack of new is my gripe.  This is where price makes me much more picky than I would've been otherwise.
