Nice, but not $22 nice.  I'll pick it up if I see it for a good price, but I'm not in the mood to get further price gouged right now.

Found, and bought, the Civil War 3 pack featuring Spider-Man and battle damaged Iron Man and Captain America (with masked and unmasked heads). The paint apps are fantastic! It was pricey at $60 but I recently found an old gift card from Christmas that had about $20 on it, so I got it for a steal.

I just saw that at Target for the first time today.  Not a bad set, but I feel like I already have enough versions of those same characters.  There is another Legends special pack on the shelves - War Machine and Concept Iron Man.  I hadn't heard about that one.  I passed as well - the War Machine is awesome, but again, I already have have a dozen War Machines.  The concept Iron Man was also not anything to write home about.   :-\

isn't it pretty standard at this point for studios to sign talent to multi-picture deals in the event that one is a tremendous success?

Pretty much.  I'm in agreement with Nick - I see this as Disney playing it safe in case a Han movie does $800mil or something crazy and they want to do more.

And yeah, I could see Han movie leading to a Boba Fett movie or even a Jabba movie or a Lando movie - lots of other characters could cross his path.

Agreed.  Lots of room for crossovers or other characters with this.  Its just smart to have options.  Look at what they're doing with the Marvel movies.  There were more Superheroes in Captain America III than any of the Avengers flicks.  They could do all kinds of stuff with a younger Han.

He could have for real?  Thanks for keeping it real Phrub.   ;)

Big time thanks to JD and Anton for all the con coverage.  Its easy to forget that this isn't anyone's day job.  Looking forward to the pics and added commentary!

You categorize the results as an "injustice?"  Dramatic much? 

Shame those grown adults aren't as passionate about real injustice.


There are better forums to discuss "real injustice" than a Star Wars collecting site, don't you think?  You must have something better to do than troll people who are passionate about a particular topic.  As stated in another thread...

I hope anyone else out there that wants them (or anything, really) also keeps asking Hasbro and talking about it. Chatter is good.  People see chatter.   Chatter can change minds.

Chatter long enough and loud enough and good things happen:D

Bobby = lame.  But how did you move Peter ahead of Marcia?   ???

Hey, you guys remember Kubricks?   :D

 :'( :'( :'(

So using that logic it sounds like Dengar must not be "in the parking lot" yet.

Yeah, and the same goes for Rex?   ???  I get not including the ones that were about to be announced, but you'd think the others would be fair if Rex is in the mix.

I'm actually really excited for a Jaina figure.

Same here.  It's funny though, seeing grown men on various boards crying over voter "fraud" on the choice of which plastic toy will be made.

Yeah, what kind of schmucks actually speak up when they see an injustice?  I mean, why can't grown men just sit around crying about the  posts of other grown men all day instead? 

I finally broke down and ordered a big chunk of these after seeing more great reports from Toy Fair.  I nabbed Pre Curse Medusa, Underworld Warrior, Skeleton Warrior x2, Spartan Warrior x2, Cursed Spartan, Cursed Gorgon Sister, Amazon Warrior x2, Youngest Gorgon Sister, and a couple of blank bodies to try out.

USS Discovery First Look.

Ugly. What was the last decent looking ship? Voyager?

The aft section of the ship looks... Klingon!

I thought the same thing.  It's like they just took the top of the Enterprise and glued it onto a Bird of Prey.  That has to be the laziest design ever.

Actress Brie Larson has been confirmed to play Captain Marvel!  The news came at the Marvel Cinematic Universe panel at SDCC last night, and Brie Larson received a standing ovation following the announcement.

That is excellent news.  I love her character and can't wait to see what Marvel cooks up for a solo story (or what other heroes get included, since that's become the norm lately).

I think what's hard to swallow here is that the TRU 3 pack of 6 inch Astromechs is only $55.  That's at least $5-10 cheaper than what you'd pay for a single 6 inch figure.  EE comes along with similarly obscure Astromechs in a 6 pack, either priced at the max of the 3&3/4" line or at a significant mark up over the basic $8 figures depending on how you look at it.  Comparing the two offerings, it sure feels like the TRU set is a deal and the EE set is a bit of a rip off.

I'm actually really excited for a Jaina figure.  While there is no doubt in my mind that the late surge of votes was tampering, she was the one figure that seemed to get the most votes in the comments throughout the week.  I think there is a lot of legitimate love for that character and I like that she came out on top, even though I'd rather be looking forward to Darth Talon. 

That said, I'm beyond frustrated at the tampering in the "Fan voting."  There's no point in having a poll where I get a vote or two, if someone else with some hacking ability can account for thousands.  Like Dave said, it wouldn't be that hard to put some controls in place to prevent this or even correct it after the fact.  The Jaina surge in one day seems almost impossible, and I'm convinced the Starkiller surge the prior two days wasn't legit either.  Heck, the initial jump ahead for Talon was probably tampering too if its that easy.  I'd rather Hasbro just took the site votes and said, "Jaina got the most site votes, so we're making her."  This charade of letting the fans vote just leaves a sour note on the whole thing, no matter who they pick.

I mean, I know it's not the two year old one, it just reminds me of it in terms of style and overall appearance.

Yeah, the 5POA OTC stormtrooper reminds me of the previous 5POA OTC Stormtrooper too.   ;)
