Price bump?

None of the parts look new to me...  Or am I not seeing something there Phruby?

Yup, this is some BS on that Leia.  Not seen the Clones, but don't doubt it is bad.  Rex looked tall in early images I saw.  He's rocking that slender body which I don't think is all that great.

The other two look more proportional, or at least they did anyway.

If they released the original edits in BR, I'd buy again.  That's all it'd take.

I'll avoid digital download anything as long as possible.

Remember last year's Rangers/Pens series where Staal did basically the same crosscheck?

Yeah, nothing...  Not even 2 minutes.  The precedent to do nothing is there, for sure.

Yeah this implosion has been going on since, really, last year.  We're hamstrung by contracts Shero & Co. signed like Kunitz, Scuderi, etc.

Crosby's tied for the lead in the scoring race, yet every fan here's asking why Crosby has sucked of late (so, so spoiled).  He, and Malkin as well, are playing with 3rd liners at this point...  Hornie and Perron are the only legit wings for them, while Kunitz is a shell of his former self, and Comeau is the $700k/yr player he is and not the "Wow, what a bargain!" he was at the start of the season.  Duper looked to be on a roll at the start of the season despite his age, so his contract looked more easy to take but obviously his clot we were without a key guy there.  Same for Daniel Winnik...  A bottom 6 guy now playing on a top 2 line because, WTF else?  Steve friggin' Downie has been more of an offensive machine, and more deserving of 2nd or 1st line play, than any of the other bottom 6 guys...  Of course, he'll kill you with a dumbass penalty.

Letang, another concussion, Erhoff concussion...  Our blue line mobility is basically non-exisant, as Derrik Pouliot is nowhere near ready for primetime.  Oh, and the current regime traded some of our mobility/youth to get Ben Lovejoy back, who I like, but who hasn't found solid footing here yet and I'm not sure the price we paid was worth it.

Cole, he's one bright spot.  Plays great...  Martin has been steady for the most part but is starting to show wear on the treads (be careful what you'll pay for him next year, Jeff, because he's not what he once was).  Tack on Scuderi who has been dismal...  We've got a lot of $ in the latter two and they're not exactly shutting people down, but at least Martin's giving us a little mobility.  He's guilty of some ugly turnovers too though, in this skid.

Beau Bennett, our only "prospect" at forward (again, courtesy mostly of the Shero era) has been a bust for the most part under two regimes now.  He looked better tonight, more confident, doing the right things, but who knows.  I feel he's not getting enough of a shot on a top two line, but maybe I'm wrong.  I dunno.

Kasperi Kappanen is being brought over, but he's no Jagr who will just flip the team on its ear and they're suddenly amazing with him.

So, that's that...  And the current regime pissed away some draft picks too, and probably shouldn't have.  Pens will not be a power next year IMO.  I think this team, as it stands, will be blown up in the off-season.  I wouldn't be surprised to see a top 2 center traded, either.  It'll hurt.

I'm almost rooting for the Senators, after tonight.  Seriously.

Yeah, I'm cheap with memory so that alone would keep me from buying these.  I'd not wanting them hogging space on anything I own, even if I were inclined to buy.  I have the BR's, and that's good enough for me.

Not gonna read it, but I'm anxious to see it now. :)  I'm anxious to see the old cast, which I am hopeful will appear (at least in part) in this new trailer.

GG released pre-orders for their C7 exclusives...  Took a while it seems.

Clicky pics to check out the story! :)

I'm not a big mini-bust buyer, but I kinda want that McQuarrie one.  Oh well.  I'll live without it I guess.

Best way to sum up Comeau, and the Pens woes, is that Malkins winger makes 700k. 

Lotta fans think its injuries...  Nope.  Bad contracts and an inability to pick up new guys, plus absolutely zero forwards to bring up who one would call a "prospect".  They're in trouble, but this implosion started LONG ago.

Pens look bad...  Just thought I'd throw that out there.  They're beyond hurting, losing Letang and Malkin, but yeah they look bad.  Limping into post season.

Got my HTS Imp Troop Transport, and it is worse than I thought it would be...

As with most vehicles they're putting out, it's essentially a vac-formed piece of plastic with "printed details".  It's comically low quality, to the point of being like a dollar store kind of a vehicle.  So glad I didn't shell out more for it, or shipping.

Some of the details are interesting, and nicely thought out/planned.  Like, for instance, the cargo strap tie-downs and/or air-lift straps on the upper sides.  I dig the thought and am not sure the detail exists on the model in the show, but it's neat that it's there I guess on the toy despite being very poorly done/lacking detail to it.

The hollowness of the interior kills me the most though, and it forces it to basically just seat 3 soldiers...  If it were a tad taller, and a hollow hold (not formed seats) so you could put more guys inside, I'd be more forgiving.

There are little half-round nubs on the bottom that give it enough rise from a surface to imply it hovers, but this is a major fumble where they COULD have included wheels.  Simple little discs snapped into a floor would've made this roll nicely on hard surfaces, and added a ton of play to it.

The top turret simply spins, and has no other movement.  The little ball turrets on the front move side-to-side, and nothing more.

There was more effort put into the stickers, than anything else on the vehicle.  I  find this thing kind of unfixable.  You'd be further ahead starting from scratch, which has been on my drawing table (literally, being designed) since it's just simpler to do that if I wanna be happy with it.  I didn't pay much for it, and that's about the only positive I've taken away from purchasing it.

I stand by the TIE Adv. being the gem of the ships so far for this line.  It's just miles superior to this or the AT-DP.

One thing that always blows my mind is they find the sweetest bases for rat rods in the apocalypse, and I couldn't find one right now if I went out looking for it.  :)
