Actually GOTG rebooted a year and a half ago with these specific characters and it's been selling very well from what I understand.  I haven't seen the movie, so not sure what liberties they've taken, but I'm sure things like the Nova-Corps are very different from what we get in the comics.  From the previews, it does look to me like they got the character personalities right across the team, which is really what Marvel has been doing across all the Avengers stuff.  If you get a macho Stark, boy scout Cap, Regal Thor, and a Wise-cracking Star Lord, you can make the link to the comics while changing the storyline all you want.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Hero Series X-Wing

Saw this last night. The wings don't open. The plastic is the same plastic used for the Star Speeder 3000. Kind of cheap but solid. There isn't a lot of detail on the ship however it could be made to look fantastic with a paint job. The R2 is just a dome like what was included in the ROTS Jedi starfighters. It think the slot could be drilled out to hold a real R2. The is nothing inside the toy and no other play features. I guess we could cut the canopy off and build out some kind of cockpit for a figure. It's big enough to hold a figure in there. The canopy could be recasted clear.  Electronics could be taken from the FX version and stored inside. The wings could be cut  and extra plastic sheets added to the holes.

It's interesting it says Disney on it.

That's an awful lot of modifications for a ship that already has a dozen decent versions IMO. Pass.

You'd need a big printer.  Maybe partner with Jay?  I built mine over the weekend and it's pretty awesome.

I heard that your clan isn't visible if it is currently participating in a clan war.

Ahh...maybe I will try again then.  I reloaded over and over and went through all of the Winterfell options, but couldn't find you.

Nice grab.  Does it have a good visor plate?  I grabbed one this morning that looks pretty bent up.

In other 6" news, I picked up the W4 Anakin and Clone Trooper at Target this morning.

Missed it by an hour.   ::)  I thought it might be this morning, so checked before work, but was too early, then too late.  Meh.

I looked for a good 20 minutes last week, but could not find your clan.  I'd join if I could find it.

I actually spoke to the TL in toys at a Target earlier in the week and he said they had scheduled their reset for Sunday.  Another local store already has their toy aisle done, so maybe thats true with your store, but not others.

Sounds like they can start building the new pogo as of Sunday, but they have the whole week to get it done.  So, good idea to start looking on the 3rd, but don't be surprised if the reset doesn't happen until later in the week.

Somewhere he sits, smiling silently as he trolls the forums and drinks up the pain and frustration of the 6" collectors refreshing HTS for days now. 

Hasbro On-line Monkey strikes again!   MONKEYYYYYYYYYYYYY!  >:(

I enjoyed this.  No sign of exclusives as of Friday @ 1:57PM.

Nice pick ups!  That unpunched Yoda looks great and CarboHan is tough to come by.

Vintage Kenner / Re: History of vinyl cape Jawa
« on: July 30, 2014, 04:05 PM »
There is a Star Wars exhibit at the Minnesota History Museum's "Toys of the 70's."  Only one guy's experience, but the guy who donated the original 12 figures and collector stand says a few lines about this.  He was one of the kids that got the Early Bird certificate picturing all the figures.  When the EB set arrived and the others showed up in stores months later, he comments that he and his friends were surprised to find the cloth cloak Jawa instead of the vinyl cape pictured.  He doesn't talk about the value, but that the cloth seemed out of place since so many of the other figures were sporting vinyl. 

That leads me to believe he was pretty rare right out of the gate and even some of the kids knew it.  There wasn't the same level of media or collector mentality, so it's probably very hard to assess how widespread the news was or what people might have paid to get one back then.  I'm not even sure where people whould have gone to buy one second hand in the late 70's, but I thought it was an interesting experience.  I figured VC Jawa was out for a while, not instantly replaced by the cloth version.
