2 Shoulders, 2 Ankles, 1 Head = 5.  Unless there is a retractable third leg (which would be awesome) to get us to 6.

Rogue One / Re: Taking Back Our Hobby

I never go to JTA, but agree that this guys sounds like a tool.  Jeff will sometimes relay some of the idiocy over there and I'm halfway tempted to check them out just to catch some of the stupid things they say.  I know it will get me riled up though, so I just ignore them.  It reminds me of watching Jerry Springer in my youth.

Rogue One / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2016

From this GH photo it looks like there's a new 3.75" Stormtrooper on the way.  This seems to have flown in under the radar at Preview Night last night.

Nice catch.  I'll buy a few of those.

They seriously need to check the data, the voting is rigged.  Talon was ahead by 5 points 24 hours ago with 54k votes.  Suddenly we have 13k new votes to push Starkiller into the lead? Yeah right.  That's tampering.  They should start by checking out Matthew Geoffrey Levine, who commented nonsense countless times to hide another person's earlier comment about vote tampering. 

Let's do the math.  24 hours ago, Talon was at 26% and Starkiller was at 22%.  There were approximately 54,500 votes.  In under 24 hours, there are suddenly 13,000 new votes and Starkiller is up to 27%.  To achieve that, Starkiller had to get roughly 6,500 votes, implying that the other 5 characters all got 6,500 votes COMBINED.  I call shenanigans.

Starkiller is at 28% now, with around 10,000 votes in the last 36 hours.  Tampering for sure, but is it some crazed fan or just Hasbro swinging the vote?  I'm sure they could just change the numbers to whatever they want if they decided Starkiller was a better option.  I made the comments in my quote on the site yesterday and they were magically deleted.  Makes me think some higher power is behind the voting manipulation.   

Really disenchanted with all things Star Wars this morning...

I'm surprised you guys are that into this.  Quite frankly I'm really disappointed.  I was hoping that this would be a way for Hasbro to keep getting new figures out and the '5 figures that hadn't been made' tease made me think it would be something really cool.

I was starting to worry that we were getting something pretty easy like this after Jeff's comment yesterday.  I like astromechs and the paint jobs on these look nice.  I'll keep my EE order and enjoy these to some extent.  But in all honestly, I have dozens and dozens of astromechs by now, especially with the Disney BADs.  I was really hoping for at least a few obscure humanoid figures - a jawa, a cantina alien, something original to go with the set.

I thought someone mentioned these being SA figures versus 5pt figures, but an astromech isn't SA at all unless there are some crazy new features these bring to the table.  It's okay, but I'm disappointed it wasn't more. 

**EDIT: It's right in the first post in this thread, "Figures include cool accessories and have the articulation you've come to love from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series."  Not sure if the "articulation" comment was Adam's or someone else's but that's really misleading and inaccurate for this set.  I can see why people are upset if that was communicated broadly.

Sorry if people have already seen this, but there is a nice season 3 fight scene here:

Figure looks great and I like the packaging, but I'll pass if I can't get it for cheap.  I like that the exclusive offering isn't too much beyond what we commoners can get our hands on.

Yeee...that second picture is scary looking.  I'll take Naomi over Johanna any day of the week...

This set is overhyped now.  Expectations have been insane the last 24 hours, so like Jeff said, this is bound to be a let down.  If they are actual Star Wars characters and SA, then I don't mind the price tag, but I'm already feeling deflated after thinking through the various options.   :-\

Vintage Kenner / Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions
« on: July 20, 2016, 04:30 PM »
Those are some impressive figures.  Wow.

28
Wow, this is such a pass for me.  I own every 6" figure to date and multiples of many, but I'm not sure I would want this figure for $20 if someone came to my door selling it.  5 times that and added hassle of international shipping.  Hard pass.
