Also noticing they had prototypes of the Laurel Worker, and the Stronghold Beaver, which are AWESOME little side vehicles.  I like the concept of support vehicles like that, and it looks like the Stronghold just requires a new upper body portion for variations.  The Laurel just seems to get new arms and attachments.  Slick little designs. :)

Did you catch the new figure (new series perhaps?) in the coverage Jeff?

Winter setting but looked like just a more heavily armored infantryman for the setting they're in.  Makes sense given the "walker" technology they'd face...  There's a similar concept for the kits I've been buying where infantry are basically called "soft shells" and more mobile but easily cracked open.  Pretty slick.

Look good to me...  paint apps being non-existent I'm not really sure what to critique besides the sculpts, which I think look nice.  Articulation looks about what you should get.

Kinda makes my hairs on my neck stand up a lil because it's signs 6" will continue to the new movies, and I question if they'll bother with 4".  I'll be disappointed.  All new movies to dip into for collector level 4" figures would bum me out if they only went 5 POA and 6".  :-\  That's a fear always in my mind though, and if it happens it happens.  I move on and enjoy other stuff.

There was a time $11 for an obscure droid wouldn't have mattered to collectors, and they'd just be bitching they couldn't find one.  Especially at Christmas.   :-\

I hadn't been to a tru for a while.  Today I was in one and wow they have a hefty stock of the R5 droid. :-X

Are you buying kits?  Or built stuff?  I'm confused, but intrigued.

I've seen the teasers on social media but didn't know it would be a HK exclusive.  My heart sank!  :(  I can only fathom cost.  I want one though.  Acid Rain and other stuff has me kinda glad Star Wars is dead slow.  :-X

Once my Xmas bills are paid next month I'm actually eying a 2nd quad eyes and going all in and buying all the figures.  I'd backed off figs but they're really nice so I am wanting the Buck's Team, and now this exclusive fig and vehicle.  ::)

I may pick this up after Xmas.  The kit looks very nice and I like all the extra gear and hands.  It is pretty inexpensive too at HLJ. 

Wow, I got 3 last year, including a Yoda with the cloth backpack I always wanted, even if Yoda kinda was meh.  I'm pretty pleased. :)

1 ) SA Lando (with removable cape)
2 ) Hoth Rebel Hangar Technician/Flight Mechanic/Whatever
3 ) Lt. Sheckill (Jeremy Bulloch Imperial)
4 ) Wedge Antilles, Snowspeeder Pilot Brown Coat Hoth Han w/hip articulation & softgoods for Taun Taun riding!
5 ) Hoth Luke (TVC Figure eats it IMO)
6 ) Human/Hunchback Ugnaught
7 ) Dagobah Luke Skywalker Resculpt SA Lobot...  Because.
8 ) Torryn Farr General Riekean Resculpt
9 ) Hoth Rebel Scout (Hoth Rebel Soldier w/more hyper articulation, basically)
10)  Treva Horme

I can't list it since it isn't a figure, but it's high f'n time the tripod laser cannon get a resculpt too.  These days they could make the thing fold up even.  We need that!  Ones we have are huge, and static.

« on: December 17, 2014, 04:34 PM »
I agree Nick.  The Hobbit wasn't intended to be LOTR, but rather a little simpler, and so the story I think got a just adaptation from Jackson.  He said he wanted to beef it up to the level of LOTR and I think he took it from "kid's book" to that pretty well.  It wasn't ever going to be as good, but it was good.

I think it could've been two fairly long films, but I think 3 was fine ultimately.  I'll happily buy these as a set when they're out I think.

I like how the petition only has 55,000 signatures when the ratings shares for the show make that number look pathetic.

**** them all indeed.  She was 3rd tier, at best, on the show.

There are definitely two distinctly different camps of fans for TWD I'm noticing.  One of them thinks the show's title is The Walking Darryl.

I have no clue where 4" Star Wars is going.  I feel like they're devoting more to the 6" line, as far as collector-targeted stuff goes.  Maybe it just feels that way, but damn near every wave is chock full of new tooling so I'm reluctant to say they aren't leaning that way.

I don't know that 4" would go away, so much as 4" collector toys would, and 4" would be all the cartoony and 5 POA stuff, which has customizing potential only to me, and I'd never shell out extra for any of it.  If that were to happen I'd be very much dedicated to other things I collect, mostly out of Japan at this point, which would suit me just fine I think.  Acid Rain would also get booku $ from me going forward, haha.  I actually may even "army build" some of the vehicles!  Hell, that thought alone almost makes me wish Hasbro would bail on collector 4" stuff I wanted, hehe.

I don't think they'd can 4" all together though.  I lean against that thought.  I just feel like 4" could be the kid's line, movie/cartoon focused obviously, and 6" will be a mix of old and new, very collector focused, and perhaps it would flourish with more interesting things like larger accessories, smaller vehicles.

I will say, the MASK news that's out there really is surprising.  Yet another direction they're going?  Is this where Joe's budget went?   :-\
