Jesse - thanks for taking the time to review these.  Looking forward to hearing more.  If you guys hear anything about the core set coming back into stock please post here.

I can't believe how angry people are over voting for toys.  Good lord.  People are pent up.

Well, hopefully our little site doesn't skew the votes too much.   ;)

I got my Alien carrying case and Japanese 3-pack yesterday.  ;D

Rob, you'll be relieved to hear the 3-pack figures appear to be exactly the same as the previous version. I compared them side by side in a bright light last night and could not tell any difference. Packaging is cool though.

The carrying case was a super nice effort, better than expected. It's big! Two stackable drawers covered in a vinyl slipcase, very retro. Fits 24 figures total I believe. I got all my loose guys in there last night and they fit great.

And man, the Glow in the Dark Alien is freaking hellishly cool. They even added some darker inked highlights to really bring out the details. I wish I had more of these guys!

Got mine today and couldn't agree more with all of this.  The GITD Alien looks awesome when I turn off the lights to the room.  The case is like double the thickness of the old Kenner vinyl SW cases.  Looks really durable and well made.  The cover art on the front is a little lame IMO - I would have preferred more realistic art or even a movie photo.  I don't have the original 3-pack, but these guys will look cool with a space suit Ripley. 

Nice list guys - I'd buy all of those in a heartbeat.  I'd still like Hammerhead above all others, but cool to see the remaining bounty hunters at the top.

Great deal if you've been holding out. Only want the FO Officer, so I'll pass again.

I want the FO Officer and the Clone Commander, but I still can't pull the trigger.  I wish they hadn't included all the repacks, or maybe made some more interesting variations.

I don't know - at $12 a figure, I almost feel like I'm losing money if I don't buy another one of these.  You can essentially throw two figures away at that price.  If it gets any lower, I think I'd have to bite just to get another FO Officer.

You can't as far as I can tell.  When I we t to pay it said the kit was out of stock.  :-\

These are awesome.  I will absolutely buy a set when they are available for purchase again.

On a side note, I couldn't figure out how to contact them on the site and their Facebook page is down.   :-\

Got my Han and Phasma from Ebay in the mail today.  So glad to finally have these.

Sulu is/isn't gay has no bearing on me not wanting to see it... I don't want to see it because I saw the "we swear it's not Khan" one and that movie was so bad (so bad I can't even recall the name and won't even bother looking for it), I pretty much swore off seeing any more of these New Trek movies. :P

Just to be clear - I could care less if any of the characters are gay or not.  I'll even go so far as to say they should have a gay character given how Roddenberry was deliberately inclusive of both genders and many races in the original series.  Even if its not necessary for the story, I can see where this might have been included with the original material back in the day.

I just don't want to support the movie for using the gay card as PR when the actor they were supposedly trying to support asked them to not to go this route.  I actually kind of like the new Star Trek stuff, but am already sensitive to this stuff with Marvel revamping all their characters lately in much the same vein.  If you really want to include minorities in your stories to make your cast more representative, then do it organically with new characters and do it for a reason other than building up hype and controversy. 

My guess is $49.99

Easily $59.99 or higher.  R2 was $20 and we rarely get deals on multipacks or exclusives these days.  I would not be surprised to see it at $70.

Yeah, there is some interesting background on this story.  Apparently it was Simon Pegg's idea and intended as a homage to Takei, but when Takei found out LAST YEAR, he expressed his displeasure with Sulu being gay and did his best to convince Cho to go another route.  Takei wanted them to introduce a new gay character rather than mess with Sulu's legacy, but they ignored him and went with it anyway. 

If they were really doing this to support Takei (who is awesome), I would be all for it.  The fact that Takei didn't want this to happen and was trying to get them to go another route tells me that this is just another lame publicity stunt to get people talking about the movie.  Black Johnny Storm, anyone?  It really bothers me that Takei knew and tried to get them to change it and they did nothing - that is the exact opposite of supporting his legacy.

I wasn't that excited to see this movie in the first place - now I'm definitely out.

Awesome. Its so refreshing to see Marvel completely do away with white males in any kind of positive heroic role. New Avengers lineup:

Black Female Iron Man
Black Male Spiderman
Black Male Captain America
Muslim Female Ms. Marvel
White Female Thor
Red Android Vision

I think 12 year old Nova might be on the team now, so that's almost a white "man."  And Ant Man is still a white guy I think. So I guess white males can still be tolerated in low doses so long as they're juveniles or diminished in size.  Its funny though - somehow all the white male bad guys are still white male bad guys.

Now I've got to figure out how I'm going to spend all this money that I'm no longer using to buy comics.

Does that mean we will see a Sulu with romantic "green alien dude in a Speedo" scene like we saw in the reboot movie with Kirk and Uhura's roommate?

Yes it does.

LOL. I'm sure with the constant buzz around Star Wars, Wal-Mart plans to stop carrying SW merchandise. 

I finally broke down and ordered Han and Phasma off eBay.  I found a seller with both for $45 shipped, so I'm out $15 minus any additional gas, time, or stress.
