I believe the cape's hinged, actually, to flop over the left arm kinda.  Just a guess though.

I totally brainfarted on this line...  Wish there was something about getting out the rest of the dwarves and maybe Bard in the 3.75" scale.   :-\

I had older brothers and the Road Warrior movies were kind of a big deal then but I was young so the storyline was lost on me.  It's kinda funny you guys were introduced to it with the Phantom Menace of the series, haha.  I liked them as a kid...  Many Legos made recreating it. :)

New one is interesting looking.  I always wanted more backstory though.  None of the movies gave enough detail.  Prequals would be interesting I think.

Surprised nobody mentioned the Mad Max: Fury Road trailer...  I watched it, and wow...  Looked pretty damn good.  No Mel Gibson feels odd though.

Clicky The Mechy


We doubled our image gallery for the Acid Rain line tonight!  Tons of new images, including shots of the placards giving the new Mech suits their names.  The Laurel, is basically one new suit that comes in a wide variety of flavors.  Marine, Sand, Mechanic, Airborne, and Viking to name just 5, and it appears to have even more!  I'll take...  uh...  all of them!

The Raptor should be available at BBTS in the (hopefully) near future.  That would be the "Sand Bike".  It comes with a bike, a "blanket", and a figure.  $80 is the price I've heard/seen.


Pittsburgh's Steel City Con ( returns to the Monreoville Convention Center just East of downtown Pittsburgh, on August 8th, 9th, & 10th!

Steel City Con returns in just under 2 weeks.  You coming to the show?  It's not just SDCC with a monopoly on good cons this time of year!  I'm always excited to see the vendors coming back with the exclusives and who, if any, lucked out.

It also lets you know who actually attended from the NE that set up here.

I'll be there, as will many PSWCS members, and I'd love to say hello if you're attending and want to meet up just to shoot the breeze a little bit!  Hit me up, but either way you'll want to make it as the Steel City Con continues to grow, year in and year out!

More image updates to our SDCC Coverage!  Again, Solrac and Darth_Anton knocked out extensive image galleries and information, so a solid thanks to both of you!  Great coverage, yet again. :)

Now that's a deal!  Congrats Man!

If the length and wingspan are correct on the box Anton, the ships actually near dead on scale to Hasbro 4" figures.  1/17.  SW figs are anywhere from there to 1/20.  Plus the variances in model and prop scales factored in of course...  It's incredibly accurate that way.  If the wings opened I'd buy 12.  They don't appear to though so it'll be good for hangar scenes and customizing.

Me too...   I'm aiming for 2-3 left grey and I'm sure I will pick up some on sales or whatnot to customize too.  If Kmart launches rebels stuff I will largely shop there.  I have points saved and apparently no exclusive for them this year.  :-\

Wow.   :-X

Well $60 for a kid to own a Falcon doesn't seem too rough. 

I think it's sculpted nicely...  I'd buy one of the larger models though personally.

Not bad for sdcc exclusives...  I've not bought into the other lines yet but I am tempted.

This is the Hot Toys Kane/Egg thing and I wish they'd mixed the eggs with the base...  green eggs, charcoal base, would look pretty cool and break the colors up without adding paint and detracting from the 70's playset feel.  :-\

I'd buy just the eggs!

I'll have to watch the movie again but I don't recall eggs being just a solid OD Green color, or charcoal, haha.  Pretty sure they were a bit more elaborate. :)  But they're definitely green and not black, so I know what the guy's saying.  There's just no paint detailing is all.

Like I said, "Screen accurate" to me would imply a pretty elaborate paintjob though and that doesn't jive at all with a "retro" playset feel.

I think that the surprise figure eggs were painted though, weren't they?  Multi-colored, kinda realistic.  Those reminded me of the Hot Toys Snap Kit eggs that the last series of figures came in.  They're 1/6 scale as well, but closed.

Are the playset eggs removable from the base?  They look it.

I'd not really look at either as screen accurate and more like a 70's playset.  Screen accurate's the Hot Toys eggs, or Microman eggs...  They're actually multiple colors and stuff. :)

This reminds me of the Land of the Jawas or something.  One solid color, which is fine by me.  I'd still like one.  I just don't think I want one for $100.  I'll decide before tomorrow is up I suppose.

I'm glad to hear the news on those space suit guys though...  I'm guessing new heads will happen, perhaps?  Kane's pretty generic though so that's fine.  I just like that suit.  Those guys look good working on a Star Wars ship in space kinda thing.
