Hey Hasbro! / Re: 40th Anniversary Ideas for Star Wars

I'd be happy if they just repainted the one we got or stuck on any of the myriad that fit but with a new hair color to it.

Oh...  and a holster that works too.

Titanfall 2 is getting some pretty solid backing/reviews...  I'd heard there was some concern it was gonna fail because of delays and such, but so far things are looking good for it.  I can't game much anymore but I'll make myself play some Titanfall 2.

Cyborg monkey FTW.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: EE Exclusive: Astromech 6 Pack

Got mine, glad I did...  I have my beefs with it, but they're not the price per figure... 

I saw a lot of posts regarding this, and some of them citing very specific #s like they somehow knew the cost breakdown on it...  Kinda funny.  I get you want it to be cheap, but is EE ever going to get that?

I have more of a beef with the sculpt they chose than the price-per-figure breakdown, but that's just me.  That said, they're pretty unique decos in the grand scheme and are anxiously awaiting a spot on the display shelves...  The orange/grey and red/white droids are my favorites.  I could've done without the pink one in favor or something more interesting (I already have R2-KT so I'm good on pink astromechs).  The green guy is kind of bland, but then again there is no all white with green accents R2 unit that I can think of off-hand.  So the white dome kind of stands out.

Again, I don't like this sculpt...  To me, I'd much rather have gotten the BAD sculpt, and yeah an R5 in place of the R2 domes would've been cooler then, but we didn't get that sculpt so I get why we got all R2's.

Wow yes congrats Paul!  I know it's been a concern of sorts and if anyone deserves some success on this it's you for pushing it for so long.  Way to go man!

Hiya updated their facebook page with some video of their latest Aliens APC prototype...  They're basically showing off how many moving parts it has, as that's a vehicle with a lot to work with.

It looks like the Lt.'s chair by the monitoring screens slides back and forth, the back drops to allow seating for the Marines in the rear, the main cannon slides on its rails for entering low clearance buildings, the side door slides open/closed (so Hicks can blast an alien trying to hold the door open), and so much more!  Tons of detail on this.  I have their Power Loader, and LOVE it.  Worth every cent I paid, and looks as good in a Star Wars display as it does an Aliens one.  It's very much like a model though, and a tad fragile compared to a traditional "toy" so if you pick one of those up, just go cautiously setting it up and posing it. (just a warning)

I'm really hoping they pull off the APC...  with as much teasing as they've done with it, I cannot imagine they don't get this into production and complete.  Their timetables may be slow, but it's worth the wait IMO.

My 3 came in...  man the snow deco isn't that high on my list of wants, but this armor is all kind of kick ass.  It is actually applied like armor, and over top of a basic figure torso, so this was I'm sure something that economically helped them keep costs down while basically giving us a new figure for all intents and purposes.  It's really a neat figure and the cargo box packaging?  It's functional, they stack upon each other and kind of "lock" together so they can't just slip off of one another with a bump to a shelf...  It's awesome.  The handles on the box are sized perfectly to the Laurel's hands too, absolutely perfectly, so that they fit quite well and look badass like they're loading the boxes aboard a ship or something.

I have a hankering for more of these guys now, but I really hope they mix up deco and give us some green, black, tan/sand, and other deco choices.  I'd even dig some "urban" ones that the box is maybe a different color and the trooper is maybe more of a police deco like riot troops or something.

If I have a complaint at all, it's a lack of functioning holsters/sheaths and removable parts from weapons.  In this case a removable bayonet would've been cool and a sheath for it even cooler.  Likewise though, ALL these figures could use a pistol with a holster as an extra plus.

But if it meant giving up the box, I'll take the cargo box any day of the week.  Lacks deco, but is instant diorama fodder.

As soon as payday rolls around I think I'm ordering up some Skeletons and humans.  Maybe a Medusa to go with them as a mini-collection.  I can't afford them all, but a nice assortment is definitely going to happen.

You can try harbor freight for some inexpensive options.  If you wanted to go balls out tho wiring up LEds yourself isn't too tough if you know how to solder.

I'm with Rob, it was brutal...  and in general "fake" **** doesn't affect me but this did for some reason, including the grotesqueness of it.  It was anxiety-inducing in a way. 

If this was Fear, I'd have been cheering.

I FF'd Talking Dead to see the preview for next week...  I'd stop and Hardwick was talking about stupid ****.  At least he didn't throw in jokes about sports, not that I could tell anyway, so that's something for him.

I'm with Nick...  I can't justify the cost for what you get.  Piss on that thing. 

I'd love that gear, the ammo packs and stuff for the squad leader, but yeah, not in a giant pack of stuff I have and don't want more of.

Yeah seriously, the Rebel Command Center?  Hmmm...  ok.  To each their own on that one I guess. :)

I probably had the most fun with the Ewok set when I was young, or the Imperial Attack Base.  Those were pretty good.  But GI Joe had the best.  The Terror Drome and Joe Base were the knockers.

When I say hard to get, I still got one for a very fair price on Ebay...  One of the only figures I ever bought on Ebay that I didn't own already in some capacity and get for its "cost".  That said, it was sold only at that one Disney convention you had to pay a lot to get into, only at Disney Land (IIRC), so I think I paid $20-ish shipped?  That's not bad.  That's quite tolerable to me, haha.

I mean they cost like $14 or so as it is I think?  So you figure the shipping fees, this person's time/energy and cost to get into that show...  It was a quite fair price.  I don't think prices on them spiked or anything either, they're still around. 

The droid's a very cool color pattern too...  Looks like something royalty would have with them.  Very snazzy.

I love these droids though.  I, as my buddies who help me get them have said, am a droid-a-holic at this point.

God help me if they start doing other build a droid things like 3PO's or whatever.
