Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - 5 POA Animated Style Figs
« on: February 18, 2015, 04:29 PM »
Okay, but the fact is that they did release Chopper and Zeb with the female figures still coming in a later wave.  While all of these have been hard to find, some people actually have Zeb and Chopper.  Pretty much no one has Hera and Sabine, who are at least equal-time cast members.  It's convenient to say that they have other female figures or they could have done this or that, but there is clearly a pattern of hesitation or bias when it comes to female figures.  When they are produced, they're usually in later waves and in limited numbers (per case) versus other characters.  Multiple versions of Ahsoka are among the hardest figures to find from their respective lines.  Flip over to other toylines like DC or Marvel. There are no females I'm aware of in the current DC 4" line.  The hardest figure to find from Marvel 4" Infinites?  The Wasp.  I see lots of Spiderman and Captain America Legends figures collecting dust, but there's virtually no sign of Spiderwoman, Black Cat, or Black Widow.  Even in the Guardians line, Gamora is among the hardest to find. 

Its just frustrating that after decades of selling figures, Hasbro and their ilk can't come to terms with anyone buying their product outside of 7-12 year old boys.

Yeah, I'm seeing these anywhere from $10-14 in the US.  Haven't seen any of the wave you mentioned though, so kudos on finding them so quickly!  That Hawkeye is just a repack, right?  Looks like the Dark Avengers one based on the pictures from Entertainment Earth.  Their casepack shows the following: 


You may have a different assortment up North or maybe the others already sold through.  If the pegs were packed, you might want to try back for the ones you missed in case they were just back-stocked.

Fishy, but it says the Item not Items.  I would have asked before bidding I guess.  Hard to tell if this is intended trickery or just a lazy description.  The buyer could always ship it back for a refund at worst.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2015

Anytime you go to the shelf and find empty pegs, it's a missed opportunity.  I'd love to know how Hasbro feels about this internally. Was this part oa planned slowdown and they're happy to just be selling the low volumes that get out?  Or did something get mucked up along the way?  Frankly I'm surprised that retailers are dedicating any real shelf space to Star Wars at this point given the ridiculously small amount of product flowing through. 

Personally, I've spent a few thousand bucks on vintage SW and high end transformers over the last year to fill the lull in SW products.  That's a small figure for Hasbro, but I'm just a single consumer.  I can't imagine the opportunity cost they've all but thrown away these past few years. 

I snagged one of these last week at Target.  They were down to just $9.99, so had to test one out.  Pretty solid figures at that price, but I Can't imagine they will stay around long at most retailers the way they seem to be pegwarming.

I'm sure they meant "official." The back of the box said this is 18" tall, and weren't all the third party ones about two feet tall when combined? But it's better than forking over $600 for one of those.

Actually I think Bruticus is only 16" tall to the head, 18" to the top of his stacks, so would fit perfectly with this.  I wonder how the individual bots stack up though.  I ordered Warbotron A (Not-Bruticus) and am loving the Combaticons as individual figs.  I'll probably display them as a team versus combined, but if Devy is the same size, he is definitely a welcome addition, especially at 25% the cost of 3P figures.

Definitely going to have to get the Shuttle Tyderium.  I've missed prior versions of the shuttle and its easily one of my favorite SW ships.  Nice that Lego brings these classic ships back out every few years in upgraded designs to boot.

That Avengers Tower set looks pretty cool.  Ant Man set is a cool concept too.  Wasn't overly impressed with what I saw of the rest.  I'm a little surprised to see them already rehashing Quinjets and Shield Trucks.  How about an Asgardian playset or Hall of Iron Man armor?  Iron Monger anyone?  Lots of set fodder beyond the same five sets over and over.   :P

Those are kind of cool.  I don't buy a lot of Reaction stuff, but this line is promising.

Largest combiner or largest "official" combiner?  I'd like to see how it stacks up against Warbot's Bruticus.  If it looks similar, I'm all in, especially at that price.

Gentle Giant "JUMBO-ing" strikes again...

Gentle Giant Expands Their Jumbo Line To Include Kennerís DC Super Powers

I really like the jumbo lines and wouldn't mind having some of the smaller original Super Powers figs, but these figures are just massive space hogs.  Great that they're doing this for the DC fans though!

Cedar Falls, IA. Specifically, Wal-Mart. They must be early on their reset, since I never find these early.

Not that far from MN.  Thanks!

Wow.  Last night's episode was a little gruesome.  Luckily, my four-year old didn't realize the inquisitor decapitated those two officers.

Yeah, that was a little departure from the usual kid-friendly nature of the show.

Sideshow has a pretty good look at the new Ultron...
