The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII
« on: April 18, 2014, 01:16 AM »
Obi-Wan having a family or children is an interesting prospect.  Some of the EU had him close with another padawan.  And we also saw the storyline between him and Satine in Clone Wars.  So there's some potential backstory there to show that Obi-Wan may have strayed from the monastic life of the Jedi. 

Another angle?  Obi-Wan was witness to Order 66, and knew that the Empire was hunting down the Jedi.  He was also aware of Anakin and Padme's relationship and that their children could be that potential new hope for the Jedi, or perhaps a new apprentice for the Sith.  With that in mind Obi-Wan may have wanted to make sure that a Force sensitive child might carry on his own legacy.

So if Obi-Wan does have a kid and she is force sensitive, what's with the dialogue between Obi and Yoda in Empire basically stating Luke or another (Leia) are their only hope?  I'd think mini-Obi might have factored into that conversation.  I just don't see the need to tread down that pre-original-trilogy path.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 2

Big changes!   

Chewie - OUT! (pushed out until the new blue/black package with larger window is running)

Fett and Stormtrooper - IN!  (see, Hasbro does love you after all ;))

6" Black Series Wave 4 Up for Pre-Order at EE!

This is great news. Seems like asking for a greatest hits wave of 4" figures isn't all that unrealistic after all...

and not anymore.

Gotta love that four minute window of opportunity.  Too bad no one saw this coming.   ::) I hope between this and the Fett shortage we can all agree that assortment is still Hasbro's biggest shortcoming.

Unless you're significantly well-to-do, this thing screams "Please, divorce me for spending $7000 on a life size figure"!

I think it screams "I'm rich!. And single!"

SONUVAB****!!!!

I finally got around to opening my 4 x Scanning Crew sets.  Lo and behold, one of the two Stormtroopers I got HAS TWO LEFT HANDS!!!!  I'm going to try contacting Hasbro customer service to report the defect, but I don't think they're going to be able to offer up a replacement figure, since it's part of an exclusive set.

That sucks man.  No wonder Stormtroopers are such lousy shots.

That has to be a misprint, right?  I could see $149.95, but $1500?  Wow.

Screaming deal on the Target exclusive Mobile Heavy Cannon.  Normally $50.  Marked down to $17.

Wow, that has to be a mistake.  I ordered two for $34.  Thanks for the tip Dave!

There is a Watch ABC app that will let you watch the past 4-5 episodes. If you haven't seen The Winter Soldier don't watch the 4/8 episode.

Thanks Jay.  I have the last 4 via on demand/DVR, but need to go much further back.  Maybe I just need to wait for the DVD.

Who is still with Agents of Shield?  I feel like the show has really picked up in the last few weeks.  Haven't seen Captain America yet so I'm not sure how much cross-over there is but I can guess at a few things.

So, I have only seen the first few.  I had the rest DVR'd,  but had to switch to a new cable box, so I lost them all.  I really want to watch the rest, but can't find any free options to catch the show.  Nothing on Netflix or Comcast on demand, and not willing to pay $2 per show via Amazon.  Any other ideas???

The picture still shows up for me.  Here it is again...



The flowers seem more coincidence to me, but that painting Michonne found is a dead on image of Tasha...

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Let me know what carded vintage you're looking to sell off.  I might be willing to buy or trade if you're looking for anything.  I've just about completed my vintage wall,  but have a few gaps yet to work through. 

Here are a few repro carded figs I picked up over the weekend.  I wanted variants of Brown Hair Luke and Small Head Han, but not willing to pay hundreds for them.  They look spectacular, but does the Small Head Han figure look touched up?  His hair and eyebrows are colored different than my loose versions.  He came from England and the guy swears he does not touch up his loose figs, but I'm not so sure now.  I snagged a vintage repro card Fett as well, but he his bubble got dinged in transit.

What? Is this sold in the theater???  Which ones?

Odeon theater Canadian exclusive. $20. It's has no articulation, just solid plastic. Theaters around the globe had various exclusives, drink coasters, 3D glasses sets etc...  When I got my popcorn & such, I picked up a drink cup with 2 toppers Cpt. America with shield & grabbed the shield topper key chain.

Thanks.  My OCD classifies non articulated figures as statues, giving me the freedom to breath easy again.   ;)

Yum. 12" IG88. I still do not have one of those. I think it's one of a handful of vintage items I don't have. Lucky dog!

That is impressive.  I have one, but not stocked with the bandolier and grenades.  Niiiiiice.
