I agree Matt.  I will custom up some but if there's not a quality line, it will have been a nice run but ending with a feelin that it sort of got pissed away at the end.  5poa won't cut it for anything but fodder to make better figures. 

At the same time, customs will be my collecting then, and I have tons of other fun things to spend on. :)

Bittersweet ending though if it pans out that way.  Still, I think it may live on even as exclusives maybe.  I have a little hope left.

I compared to my Hot Toys Hicks...  It's pretty decent.  For a small company I think it's pretty good.  Not a great likeness of the actor per se, but neither is Hasbros latest Han the best Ford likeness.

The colors are off and stuff but that can change.  The armor looks pretty on the mark to me even compared to the HT Hicks 12" fig.  It's a prototype too and miles superior to their last humans (WW2 Germans).  I didn't think they were doing any figs from the movies tho even if in the game as cameos.

Got mine too and second that emotion.

The block was worth the purchase, dare I say.

I like the Jawas a LOT more than I thot I would. 

Hans sculpt isn't the best ever but it is a good update and happy to put this one to bed.

Saved my extra to open last.  I think I will pick up two more Hans for some custom purposes too.

Aliens has me slightly interested but only because I'm starved for that stuff.  However, Hiya Toys is putting out figures that are basically Aliens, under the Aliens: Colonial Marines guise, and so far the Aliens themselves are everything you'd want in a SA line.

Not sure on the Marines, which are pushed to August for pre-orders.  The POwer Loader prototype is all kinds of amazing looking though.  :o

So to that end, I'd rather have an SA line and spend on that, but I do love all things Aliens and so I may still pick up the Funko guys.

Speak of the devil, they just released a new pic of Hicks...

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Resin
« on: June 26, 2015, 01:57 PM »
Resin has to be cleaned really well before painting, and should definitely be primed first with automotive primer.  Otherwise it's no different than plastic.

Really plastic should be washed and dried thoroughly too, but resins usually have mold release agents on them that definitely need cleaned off.  But anything to be painted should be prepped first with a good cleaning since it'll have oils/residues off your hands that inhibit paint adhesion.

what Brent said... 

So many names thrown around here for wingers, but a lot hinges on who we'd unload on D, and dead weight.  Oshie, Kessel, Sharp, etc.

Hah I was thinking him or Mosep.  A Cantina dude I wanted would be a cool way to cap it off for me too, but yeah Han is up there as I've wanted him for a while.

Yeah he's there chillin', and on the sailbarge too.  Having booze.  He, of course, left to sun himself before the thing blew up.  Imagine his surprise at the walk back to the palace.  However, he doesn't mind because he's a lizard so he enjoys the sun.

Hasbro Pulse Website

Click the linky above to read...  Basically though, Hasbro's started a more direct "fan site" to connect with fans of their various brands and such.  They're promising inside design process stories, feature stories on people like Stephen Hayford and his photo-art (which is already up on the site and good to read), Fan polls, and product reveals.

Check it out...  It officially debuts tomorrow but is live now.

James Neal and the Pens said the same thing.  Just sayin'.

That said even if he was to leave, I don't think he'd wind up here given $ situation.

I agree, I find the set grossly overpriced unless you need most of it...  and especially the Rancor.  The WM Jabba came with a ton more goodies that I feel like a Jabba without them is a tad naked.  The Rancor's cool, so if you need it that's good.

The figures, eh...  I'd say only one's truly desirable, and that's the Gammie.  The others, weren't terribly tough to get.

Lotta teams after Saad, including his hometown.  :-X  One of the few I think we'd give up big for.

An update for me, EVERYTHING of mine is shipping/processing at this point, however Wave 8 case is still not available to ship and says July.

This month was a bear...  Tons of stuff here and abroad came due.  I was sorta financially prepped for it, but sheesh it still hurts when you start really adding stuff up and looking at it.  :-[  June must've been everyone's month to get new things to market.
