The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 6
« on: November 12, 2014, 01:17 AM »
HOLIDAY may be on specific toys, not sure.  It just came to me today.

Kinda weird to give that specific code to enter, but it only works with certain toys, but then again HTS isn't exactly normal either.  :-\

Their Joker, Batman, and Harley Quinn are gorgeous...  I think I'm gonna blow Diane's son's mind with those pics this week.  He loves all things Batman.

I'm interested in these...  I don't really understand the difference though between these, and like those kit figures we've seen too that are available on pre-order places for fair prices.  I thought that Stormtrooper looked amazing, personally, and may order one.

I saw these too, but I just don't get it...  Why do a set like that, but then figures like those?  The sets are neat, but wish they'd done figures ala Mega Blocks and how they've handled video game properties.  :-\

Word on the street is someone got me an AT-DP and Inquisitor TIE at a pop-up TRU that opened this week, and I have coupons I plan to take and get the prices adjusted.  :D

First I've gotten a sniff of these, so I'm giddy.  We're always the ass end of distribution but these have really been slow going here.

1 )  Death Squad Commander (Vinty is a nice base, but I want more than the new dude painted grey.  I want at least a new head and rank badge!)

2 )  Princess Leia Resculpt

3 )  Danz Borin (White Space Suit Dude)

4 )  Mosep Grand Moff Tarkin...  Use the new figure as a base, but get the colors right, and do the headsculpt justice with a better deco!

5 )  Black Tuniced Imperial Officer (any of the ones who had lines in ANH would be nice, but Daine Jir is my personal favorite pick...  Dude talks back to Vader!)

6 )  Captain Antilles (Rebel Fleet Officer) Resculpt
7 )  Tizvizzit (or how ever you spell it)

8 )  Garouff Lafoe (Cantina Snitch!  This guy's a dirtbag!  We need this figure, people.)

9 )  Jabba's Human Guard 1, Boelo (Special Edition, Tall Pointy Hat Guy)

10)  Jabba's Human Guard 2 (Special Edition, Large Bushy Bearded Guy)

Code HOLIDAY nets you free shipping.  All told, one probably washes out the other ultimately.  I miss 20% off and free shipping...  I'm sure all the whining about how things were packaged didn't help keep that going.

Yes, that Laurel is a thing of beauty!!!!!!!! :)

This was pilfered from their Instagram btw.  They post a good deal of pics there, but otherwise getting info on this line is like pulling teeth.

10HTSDISC is the current coupon code available.

10% off.

It's a pretty good wave of repacks, and while I'm not a fan of Hoth Luke's overall figure, it does knock out the variation.  And I'll take an astromech any day of the week if it's one we don't have yet, so there's that.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - 5 POA Animated Style Figs
« on: November 11, 2014, 02:13 PM »
Did it with Ezra, so it's kind of confusing not to do it with Sabine, but I'm guessing it's her hair, the animation style, and the shrinking of her head they'd have to do (or enlarging of the helmet) not looking right, which is keeping them from giving her a removable helmet.  Just my guess right now.  I'd not be shocked to see a helmetless version at some point.

I'm with you on that Nick...  I thought last week's was bad on a variety of levels.  I thought Beth's acting was meh at points, the premise of that place lasting that long that way, it was off to me somehow.  The courtyard with the cars was overrun but yet still how the police-ish people just come and go at random kidnapping people...  It was a goofy episode, to me.

I thought this week was vastly superior, if nothing else because it was an episode delving heavily into Abraham, and Eugene, which we've seen little of that at all in this show so far.  It got to the root of who they are, and why they are like they are.  I like flashbacks because I like the backstory, and the seeing other groups or other places.

I feel like next week looks a good bit more intense, and I appreciate that, but I appreciated this week a good bit.  Last week, it just didn't work as well.  I'm usually more apprehensive about new people when they're intro'd but those guys just felt like Rick would cook and eat them or something.  I dunno. 

On TD they did say that they were following the comic storyline on Abraham's past, if you're referring to WHY he was killing those guys in the store, Nick.  I hadn't read them so I didn't know any of that till they said it there.

The Abraham/Rosita scene would've been better if character placement were rearranged for it.   :(

If it's warm and you live someplace cold, no biggie to me.  Leaving them up all year is akin to a couch on your front porch.

I'm getting at least everything down from the garage space tomorrow I think.  We're lucking out where this polar dip isn't getting us, and just by a pube, so I'm scared enough to get things down.  I don't go up on a ladder to put anything up here.  Now Diane's house, that's another story.  :-\

Good to see Hasbro fixing a toy with a flaw that bad.  I passed on this Vader...  This may get me to buy it now.

Yeah, I think the deals online are the better route to go with this stuff than B&N purchases.  I want some, but I'll pick them up with orders at EE or something first.

They should just have a whole separate section to sell these figures in, where you have to show ID to enter, and it should have big neon signs all over it that say, "ADULT TOYS" all over it...  Outside could have the same thing too.  Like right below the big Toys R Us sign could be a big neon blinking sign that says "ADULT TOYS" below it...  blink blinking.

Someone will inevitably get confused and put Hex Bugs in there, but they'll figure it out eventually.

It doesn't seem to work on everyone, or work well maybe.  Yet other times it does...  it's inconsistent, I can say that much anyway.

What the Rebels first major victory was seems a bit ambiguous in the EU.  It could be it's the Death Star plan heist, but the DS plan theft is rather clandestine in most of the EU representations of it (especially if you stick with the Dark Forces arc).

Another angle I viewed on that line was the takedown of an Imperial Destroyer or two prior to the events of ANH...  Moving from simple convoy raids to real assaults on major targets...  which the DS plans kind of throw a monkeywrench into that then since there's this new big threat and all the victories in deep space suddenly mean bunk because of it.

It's an interesting topic I think.

And this still seems to meander back into the "EU is DEAD!" crap...  This is one of the things about Rebels I really don't like...  It's really just more EU to me, as is anything now in the post-Lucas era.  It's like having someone write Middle-Earth story lines now that Tolkien is long dead.  Any individual with enough $ could've bought it.

I keep getting these articles about the voice actors telling people how deep and dark their character's backstory is, but I'm reluctant to believe them at this point.  I don't see this show delving where TCW was willing to go.

I like that thought too, that the shows feel like "webisodes", McMetal.  They're shallow, and simplistic...  so far anyway.

There's a ton of cool stuff to take away, but there's a lot to just ignore and be disinterested in too.  I mean, some of the dialogue is really laughably bad too.  There is a long way for this show to go, and grow.
