I'm also sitting on my ass waiting to see what others stumble upon.  Never first up the trail.

As it is they put out a security update that's freezing win 7 machines last week that pissed me off insanely.  Download, and during the reboot process, your machine freezes.  Totally f'n stupid and I had to ultimately shut off auto updates till they fix their fix.

Stupid FunkBLOW!!!!11!!

Hasbro was quite hosed on exclusives years back...  Collectors demanded outlets for con stuff, got it, and they were taking a bath on stuff.  This is a two-way street.  Like I've been saying, at least they didn't make the actual toy exclusive in some way.  You think this was bad, try being an IJ fan several years back.  That was fun.

This is all a marketing thing.  Thus this toy's hype was started on actual news outlets, not fan sites.  I feel bad for people that really wanted it and missed it, but there is always the argument that the people at sdcc went through worse to get theirs so why should they not get something special?  I don't know how much I agree with that but I can see the point. 

And while I know people want them to can stuff like this all together, Hasbro has a business to run and I think they'll always look at a hype machine like this as business first and collectors 2nd.  But to be fair to them, they tried hard by making it packaging only.  They've danced on that edge for years leading up to this. 

I agree wholeheartedly with Rob/Jeff too that a number or factors will drop prices.  He'll my friend for one for $90 to his door weeks ago.  That is $60 above its cost.  How much is $60 worth to you I guess?  I have never paid above retail for a modern toy, but one I want and didn't buy years back is on my radar now.  I may have to cave.

I wish hasbro could give everyone one who wanted one, and not be stuck with any beyond that.  That's never happened in this line's history though, that I can think of.

They will look beyond awesome with the Aliens they made though so count me in for two Power Loaders and 2x each fig!  :D

Gonna hope for EE to carry these.  Wish I had some confirmation!  I have a Hicks from Hot Toys but this looks better IMO.  Hudson I can't wait to see.  Game over man game over!!!!

Nice man!  Congrats.  :D

Saw pics on twitter, and yowza... Yeah, bigger than most people's cars.

Impressive to look at.  Would love a 1/18 one, and would still have nowhere to put one even that much smaller.

I can't think of any reason why not?  His comedy is timeless.

Matt is too vague around these parts. :)

Virex hit me up on Twitter that he listened to FlyGuy's interview with Topps, and it was pretty similar to Hasbro... Whole lot of "we can't discuss that" type stuff, and it smacks more and more of Disney is to blame for all this.

I don't get WHY they'd want to keep you in the dark on everything though...  Overly protective?

It's interesting to see things handled this way.  More than ever really.

I'd think, if anything, Pulse...  Beyond that, leaks. 

There could be some large media outlet bones thrown around too, but I think Pulse's timing puts it as the way they intend to spotlight anything they MAY leak out.  Otherwise it'll all be just random leaks lists and what we see on 9/4.

Pulse seems coincidentally timed though.

Ugh, the prospect of cool "accessory" type weapons being included now as a BAD type thing with figures I don't want...  Hmmm.  Just the thought kind of has me intrigued and sad at the same time.  I love things like the Radar Laser Cannon but dread buying it piecemeal with 5 POA figures. 

Have to see them to be sure what way I'm doing with this stuff, but I'm intrigued at least.

Again...  Thanks Hasbro, for giving us not even the most remote of clues to know what's even going on.  It'll be very weird on 9/4.

Interestiń interview...  Not sure I hold out hope that it translates to Star Wars though.  Hasbro have heavily implied 6" just gives them a much broader freedom at this point.  I want to believe 3.75" has life to live yet.  Just not sure Hasbro has any thought towards it.

Got Gold Leader and wow is he a nice figure.  Deco is great on mine and he's average height instead of that damn Luke sculpt getting reused.  Happy to have him and will pick up more for $10 or less.

SDCC 2015 Image Galleries

Final update to the galleries...  Added some more companies to the database, and wanted to take a moment to thank Anthony (Darth_Anton) and Carlos (solrac) for both taking time off the show for us to take pictures and do more for the site and our readers.  Really appreciate that and already looking forward to next year!

I'll take that 4" scaled one all day long.  My fav ship I think maybe slightly behind the Snowspeeder.  That one's tough to beat, but man that Starspeeder is fun.
