I don't in any way want to minimize the accusations here, but they are just accusations at this point, correct?  I have a hard time assuming guilt for someone that's not been proven guilty and just don't know enough about the case to lean one way or the other.  I'm also very aware that there are a ton of people who made and starred in this movie, so boycotting it because of one person ends up hurting a bunch of other people beyond  Singer.  I'm not sure if I'll race to see it in the theater, but I will eventually see it as it looks like a great story.

I know I'm super late to the party and I knew it was coming, but just finished issue 100 of the comics and wow wow wow.

Yeah, that was a rough one.   :-\

I don't think Obi's child would be unknown to him once he's a spirit.  If he can find Luke on Hoth or Endor it would be silly for him to not know about his kid.  Its just not a good fit for his character or the existing story.  I hope they go another direction.  30 years after ROTJ would give us plenty of time for some cool Solo and Skywalker Jedi along with a number of others from other worlds. I don't see any need to tap into Obi-Wan genes.

It doesn't hurt that Cap has a movie that was just released AND Army builders in the lineup.  The spidey line doesn't have a lot going for it, especially given the abundance of Spidey figures available over the years.  And if that's not enough, Spiderman is priced $2 higher at my Target stores than the Captain America line.

A lot of the transformers stuff gets reproduced or knocked off by some 3rd party.  If you want the original styles, I would go with the reissues.  You can buy all five on Amazon for about $300 boxed.

You might be able to find a deal on another site or Ebay, but $300 is pretty good.  You could also go with WST Dinobots for about $100.  These are 4-5" versions of the original toys with similar look and transformations.  If you have patience and really want to upgrade, there are a few 3rd party companies making 12-15" Masterpiece editions that have incredible detail.  These are just starting to hit but search for FT Scoria to see pictures.  These will probably end up costing $800 to $900, but will take a good year to roll them.all out, so you have some time to get your finances in order. 

Hope that helps!

Obi-Wan having a family or children is an interesting prospect.  Some of the EU had him close with another padawan.  And we also saw the storyline between him and Satine in Clone Wars.  So there's some potential backstory there to show that Obi-Wan may have strayed from the monastic life of the Jedi. 

Another angle?  Obi-Wan was witness to Order 66, and knew that the Empire was hunting down the Jedi.  He was also aware of Anakin and Padme's relationship and that their children could be that potential new hope for the Jedi, or perhaps a new apprentice for the Sith.  With that in mind Obi-Wan may have wanted to make sure that a Force sensitive child might carry on his own legacy.

So if Obi-Wan does have a kid and she is force sensitive, what's with the dialogue between Obi and Yoda in Empire basically stating Luke or another (Leia) are their only hope?  I'd think mini-Obi might have factored into that conversation.  I just don't see the need to tread down that pre-original-trilogy path.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 2

Big changes!   

Chewie - OUT! (pushed out until the new blue/black package with larger window is running)

Fett and Stormtrooper - IN!  (see, Hasbro does love you after all ;))

6" Black Series Wave 4 Up for Pre-Order at EE!

This is great news. Seems like asking for a greatest hits wave of 4" figures isn't all that unrealistic after all...

and not anymore.

Gotta love that four minute window of opportunity.  Too bad no one saw this coming.   ::) I hope between this and the Fett shortage we can all agree that assortment is still Hasbro's biggest shortcoming.

Unless you're significantly well-to-do, this thing screams "Please, divorce me for spending $7000 on a life size figure"!

I think it screams "I'm rich!. And single!"


I finally got around to opening my 4 x Scanning Crew sets.  Lo and behold, one of the two Stormtroopers I got HAS TWO LEFT HANDS!!!!  I'm going to try contacting Hasbro customer service to report the defect, but I don't think they're going to be able to offer up a replacement figure, since it's part of an exclusive set.

That sucks man.  No wonder Stormtroopers are such lousy shots.

That has to be a misprint, right?  I could see $149.95, but $1500?  Wow.

Screaming deal on the Target exclusive Mobile Heavy Cannon.  Normally $50.  Marked down to $17.

Wow, that has to be a mistake.  I ordered two for $34.  Thanks for the tip Dave!

There is a Watch ABC app that will let you watch the past 4-5 episodes. If you haven't seen The Winter Soldier don't watch the 4/8 episode.

Thanks Jay.  I have the last 4 via on demand/DVR, but need to go much further back.  Maybe I just need to wait for the DVD.

Who is still with Agents of Shield?  I feel like the show has really picked up in the last few weeks.  Haven't seen Captain America yet so I'm not sure how much cross-over there is but I can guess at a few things.

So, I have only seen the first few.  I had the rest DVR'd,  but had to switch to a new cable box, so I lost them all.  I really want to watch the rest, but can't find any free options to catch the show.  Nothing on Netflix or Comcast on demand, and not willing to pay $2 per show via Amazon.  Any other ideas???
