Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread
« on: September 30, 2016, 10:48 AM »
I went and saw The Magnificent Seven last night.  One of the best movies I've seen this year.

I thought it was pretty good too if you like westerns.  Solid characters and story, though it's a fairly slow build to the big action at the end.

They had at least a case of these (more likely 2) at the midnight opening last night.  Guys in front grabbed multiples, so I was lucky to grab the last one on the pegs.  I'm sure they'll get more a week or two later per usual.

Maybe Josh Gad will sing his popular hit song, "Do You Want to Build Star Wars 3.75" Super Articulated Figures" at Hasbro?

I see what you did there.   ;D  Let it go, Let it go...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4

I saw Phasma and Leia today. Obviously female figures don't sell.


Looking forward to this one. The figure looks great. As for a companion piece, it's probably going to be some villain, so I'll say a Death Trooper, some trooper we haven't seen yet, or Vader, if he decides to go rock climbing.

Maybe it will be an IRS Tax Attorney...

What's Kmart?

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

So I was talking to a buddy and he made a pretty good point...  Getting into/out of a hatch like on that tank wouldn't be too easy in body armor...  Like, to the point your life would be at risk.  If you've ever seen someone get into a WW2 tank's hatch, even the larger ones like the commander hatch on the turret, it's tight. 

That might be a bigger issue if Stormtroopers were riding around in WW2 tanks versus their own hover tank.  There's no reason why the imperial tanks couldn't have larger hatches.  Real tanks are not designed to have troops jump in and out of them - if you're in the tank, you're supposed to stay in the tank.  Probably the same with an AT-ST - there isn't a lot of reason to jump out into combat when you're cockpit is dozens of feet high in the air.  But a stormtrooper in a hover tank might have more need to pop in and out, and they could easily design the tank to accommodate that need a variety of different ways.  If the trooper is getting out of the tank more regularly, he's definitely going to need armor.

LEGO / Re: Recent Acquisitions

Picked up the Advent Calendar as well at the Toys R Us nearest to my house - they're running a sale on Star Wars Lego at the moment, so it was discounted down to $31.99 - not bad!

Nice score.  I checked around me and they're either not in yet or all sold out.  Not available for order on the site.

However, I did find them available at for $34.  I always get this and the Lego Friends one for my kid (also $3 off), so I picked them both up with free shipping.  Not bad.

I'll be watching for Tunghori auctions I think...

My son just rolled his eyes at the pack-ins.  I really have a hard time believing anyone likes these.  But, at least new figures are on the way.  Yay!

Actually, since my last post, Enchantress has been added to this wave, so that's my mistake. I think that the figures are evenly packed, although I'm not sure on that.

Correct.  Its the 6 listed plus Enchantress and Astral Form Strange for a full set of 8.  I was just teasing that she was left out of your initial list.

Cassian is the Eadu/blue coat version

In the clip I'm sure that coat is brown...

Dr. Strange (Dormammu BAF)
Dr. Strange
Dr. Strange (Movie)
Baron Mordo (Movie)
Nico Minoru
Iron Fist
Brother Voodoo

Here we go with you female action figure haters!  No love for the Enchantress?   ;)  There's an Astral Form Doc Strange in this case to get us to 8 figures as well.

I'm not willing to go the case route this time, but if anyone finds an Enchantress at retail, please grab or stash for me.  I'ld like one to go with my Thor figures as they are sorely lacking any Asgardian baddies.

Personally, I think Hasbro sets the bar high to get buyers feeling good about the the retail price they really want to sell at.  We'd be having the same discussion if this launched at $250 or maybe even $200.  By setting it at $300, they're going to get a few people who just can't wait, especially when demand is crazy high.  Then it will eventually get marked down $50-75 and by then everyone will be thinking it's an amazing deal.  If they instead launched at $225, people would probably avoid it like the plague.  It's just smart marketing/pricing.
