The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2015
« on: February 17, 2015, 03:59 PM »
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.

Domhnall Gleeson Tweeted out that he was the Son of Skywalker today and it has since been removed...hmmm

Debunked as a fake twitter handle.  The imposter didn't even spell his name right.

Found the new Avengers series at WM tonight. I picked up the Witch, since the Toy Biz one was awful, but they all looked great. Thor looks really neat, and I might end up building Odin.

What part of the country?  I've been waiting on these forever...

I would also say the chances of a non Peter Parker Spiderman are at least 50/50.

You're crazy.  The whole world knows Peter Parker as Spider-Man.  Peter Parker movies have made Sony $4 billion.  The circulation of the Miles Morales Spider-Man books is 30,000 (77th highest of January).  I see the chances of a non-Parker Spidey somewhere south of 1%.

I hope you're right, but I think the odds are a little higher than 1%. 

1.) In the comic world today we have a black Captain America and a female Thor. 
2.) On the cinematic side we have a black Electro in Amazing Spiderman and a black Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four. 
3.) There are currently no blacks in the Avengers lineup (unless you count Fury I guess). 
4.) The current cinematic Avengers map a lot more closely to the Ultimates universe where Miles is Spidey

I'm with Team Parker, but the conditions are certainly ripe to introduce Miles vs. Pete.
