****, you beat me to it.

Leia's cups runneth over.

She's barking up the wrong tree with Threepio though.  :-X

Pics removed but they're making the rounds elsewhere.

Digging the alien crewman for the X-Wing, and in general the Resistance Pilot looks.  Similar but updated.  I like it.  I appreciate Abrams' team generally knowing how to make things look the same, but evolved.  Lucas seemed incapable of that with the PT somehow and it bugged me.

Check out the front page for a good link to them.  :D

And yes, what Scott said...  most of this will get leaked I bet.

Retailers, if nobody else, will leak it because they always have street dates broken.  It is science.

A hasbro designer recently said on twitter basically "see you for Force Friday for the full reveal" or something along those lines, so I think it really is just that.  I think there is a slight chance some toys are revealed on Hasbro's new "Pulse" site too.  I didn't plan on buying a lot even if I did know, so I guess this isn't bugging me too much.  A little but but not a ton.

I'm not going out anyway so I guess I'm not really thinking much about it.  I'll either be working Saturday or have a football game to be at the night before and the next day, so I'm not going to be out partying it up buying toys I guess.  :-\

But yeah, knowing what to budget for it is a nice thing, and Hasbro should at least be laying some things like that out for us.  Just a "wait and see!" isn't going to cut it for many.

That said I've lost hope of much of it appealing to me anyway, so I guess I'm already not really feeling like I'll be missing out except that my friends are all going and I can't join them.  :'(

I overbought in 1999...  Definitely was too young to know to bide my time on soooo much stuff.  Didn't buy a buttload as much as I regretted that what I did buy I could've had for less than half, easily.

2002, learned my lesson from 99 and only bought that WM TIE Bomber (bought every one my WM had!), and didn't buy a single figure from that line till a long while later.

2005, bought some of what I liked.  Prices were fair, figures were pretty high quality in collection 2...  Didn't buy vehicles, didn't buy a ton really, but I did get some of those Jedi and wasn't disappointed in that choice.  I also didn't go out till that morning for Target Vader...  That was probably pretty dumb of me actually.  :-X  Should've stayed in bed.

Being more a store than a display explains the insane lines.  :-X

Yeah it only enhances the value. :)

Alright, anyone seriously considering plunking down $185 or so with tax for this?! 

I don't even know where I'd be able to put it if I did think the price was reasonable...

I am not a 6" collector, however...  If I were, I would want one of these.  Would I drop that kind of coin on it though?  Well, I have a few thoughts on that.

First, I paid $159.99 for an Acid Rain toy and will be doing so again shortly when the other deco (of the same toy) is back in stock.  So, am I willing to pay that much?  Obviously I'm in that ballpark.

However, I have to REALLY like the toy.  That said, I say if I were a 6" collector I think I'd consider it.  However as a mass release toy, I'd also be tempted to play the waiting game because I always felt whatever it's real value is will be determined by the masses.  If you want it bad enough, and want to pay full price, I think you should.  People did with the BMF, the AT-TE...  I got my BMF for under $60 though, and I got only one full priced AT-TE.  Any other BM ship I got was WAY discounted though.  I believe under $30 for my MTT and Turbo Tank (God, that name), and I think damn near $10 on that Republic shuttle.  I mean, that thing was basement price.  I also got 2 AT-TE's for $50 or less.  I'd have bought more if I could've found them.

Of all those, I only truly wanted the AT-TE and even I was like, "meh, I want more of them but I'm cheap so I'll see how tihs goes".  So the Acid Rain comparison is difficult I guess, is what I'm saying, but it says "yes I will spend a lot if I like something enough".

What would I personally do with that TIE?  I'd go hanging from the ceiling.  Just my take.  I have 1/18 warplanes on the ceiling, and they're massive.  I mean, you'd be amazed how close my Avenger is to that TIE, I guarantee it.  Speaking of wingspan at least.  And I'd dare say the fuselage is a hell of a lot more plastic than the cockpit of that TIE.  And that's one of at least 8 hanging in half my collection room.  So I can see something like that I guess.

I think the 1/6 TIE Sideshow may or may not be selling (I couldn't tell by the news) is absolute insanity though.  I mean, Hasbro compromised on theirs some.  Sideshow, didn't.  Not a slight, just a fact.  That's insane.  Hell, that Falcon cockpit is 0 compromising on scale, and it's HUGE.  Just huge.  Those things are absurd, and I'm honestly debating that Falcon and a Han/Chewie for it now.   :-[  I wasn't gonna get Han/Chewie, till that cockpit got shown.  Now...  well, I need another car though, so who knows?

I'm wondering what the packaging will look like on this.  I really want to see how they go about it.  I can only imagine the ship will be broken down, at least somewhat.  It may not make a nice presentation that way though.

I'd been going about this all wrong.  If I'd known we were facing the forces of darkness, obviously I wouldn't have put rational thought into it.

Did you forget to play the record backwards again, Jesse?

Clearly you've not ventured off this forum.  ;D  It was confirmed when 6" figures were shown, that 3.75" is dead, and Hasbro killed it intentionally because they just hate us.

Looks to me like cases are processing at the moment.  Just a heads up if you ordered.  If you didn't, apparently the world is ending so you should order now.
