Conventions / Re: Star Wars Celebration Europe - London

Personally I'd have a hard time justifying going to London, for a Star Wars show.  :-X

For me, I'd rather see London and anything else in Europe I could while I was there.

Thanks for offering your services again Paul.

Nice to hear a sighting of these.  Never hit here.

Capes are all the rage in the SW uni.  They're in.  Always.

I'm with Nick on this...  I never figured GA since the trailer once I saw the black pants.  ISB makes perfect sense.

I'll add in that, if they make a nice version of the Hovertank from the trailer (there's a pic of it from the front) I'll be a happy happy collector.  It's essentially a German StgIII from the front profile.  I love it!  One of my fav armor pieces of WW2.  Neat seeing kind of obvious nods to German armor for the Empire.

The fact they did a Hovertank for the Empire and broke up the Walker monotony had me right away.

Yeah I don't think Davos has killed anyone.  He's always just there, talking.  One of the more "purely good" characters.  I'm amazed he's lasted this long.

I've seen the pics and everythig says "This is not final" on it.  However, very little info I actually in it and what there is I'd say is probably fairly accurate.  It doesn't really spoil anything IMO.

I thought there was a black R5?

Yeah I think if it's like a Target thing a pack of repaints for an Arm and a leg would be twice as frustrating.

Here is where the 6" line hits it's biggest snag IMO.  It's going to hurt that much more when they really get into the mold tooling milking.  Overall it'll just sting knowing you're paying for paint.  3.75" may not be a lot less, but it's still less.

I think it's another instance of a no-win for Hasbro.  Make an exclusive a repaint and people complain. Make it new figures of unmade characters and people complain.

I think of the two evils they opt for the former due to cost and the hope it offends the least.  You make it all new stuff, they'll never hear the end of it from most.  I mean, people harped that Carbonite Jar Jar was exclusive haha. 

Hell, make no exclusive and people will still be angry.  *shrugs*

I read something recently about how they wish they'd make stuff like that exclusive snowspeeder with Zev again, and I distinctly recall people pissed at buying another ship they have to get a figure they don't.  I can't get behind that mentality, and I don't recall those things being a part of the "good old days" to most.  Anyway yeah, a repaint is cheap and the least anger-inducing, so I get it.

Another +1 from me on the droid assist...  Thanks Pete!

I saw Adam Pawlus called the R5-M4 droid "just different enough to make you mad", but I gotta say that's way off the mark...  This droid is pretty significantly different.  The orange isn't even the same shade/tone as the orange on any of the BAD parts.  It's got all the very noticeable silver highlights (which I mistook for white in the pics before I owned it), and almost every panel/detail is painted differently in one way or another.

Gotta say this doesn't fit the bill on that one for me.  You can't build this droid at the park, at all, or come even close to it really.  :-X

Gotta pic of the ship?  First thought is simply styrene pipes.

The PT was warrin' and whorrin' but never borrin' as they say.  And to that end, they warred a lot. :P  It was about all that was great in it, to me.  Especially ROTS.

If it doesn't have a campaign it'll suck like this one did. 

On the flip side, I'm anxious for some Doom reviews, just haven't looked around to find them yet.  Might do that tonight.

 :D  Me too!

Yeah that's not a bad dealio for this loose.

Here's something that shocked me...  It's SILVER, not white, trim on it.  Every pic I've seen I really thought it looked white, but it's silver, so that's more in line with the current BAD black droid parts out there.  The orange is WAY more toned down than the orange on the BAD's though, so that's not jiving much there.  Still, a plain black dome on it would look cool, or the silver R3 dome.  It's a pretty colorful/mixed looking droid so it's better that way than the current black/orange torso, or the old black/silver one.   It'll stand out from the BAD crowd.
