JD Sports Forum! / NHL Offseason 2014
« on: June 23, 2014, 04:13 PM »
Draft coming up this week.  Free agency looming.  Should be a fun couple of weeks before we hit the dark summer months.  Random off-season thoughts...

-  wondering how long it will take before Jesse's Pens get down to interviewing him or me for head coach since they seem to be interviewing just about anyone these days.  Must suck knowing the best guy for the job out there is the guy they just fired.  Also must suck seeing "your guy" opt for Carolina or Vancouver instead... though those jobs probably come with a lot less media attention.

- wondering where the Wild will ultimately end up.  So many things were rumored all year long (Vanek, Vanek, Vanek!) and now... not so much.  Re-signing Moulson was a lock until the playoffs and now people have cooled on wanting him too.  Might be one of those summers where there's a lot of talk, but ultimately they go with the youth movement and hope for improvement from last year.

- Hall of Fame.  Nice to see them finally let Pat Burns in there.  No surprise on Modano, Hasek, and Forsberg.  Bit surprised they made Recchi wait though but I suppose you can't have everyone at once.

Lots of pictures from the preview event hitting twitter... nothing Star Wars yet.

So, Andrewz Toys posted this:  6" Cantina Showdown 2-Pack

Yeah...  a 2-pack of figures that everyone already probably owns.   Huh.  ??? 

No word on if this set is some kind of store exclusive (could be the rumored TRU Cantina set?) or if its the first of potentially many "battle pack" ideas for the 6" figure line.

No word on the content or the timing, but StarWars.com says...

Josh Trank To Direct Stand-Alone Star Wars Film

Quote
In addition to the episodes of a new Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm and Disney continue development of multiple stand-alone movies that will offer new stories beyond the core Saga. The newest director to come on board is Josh Trank.

"We're thrilled to welcome Josh into the family," says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. "He is such an incredible talent and has a great imagination and sense of innovation. That makes him perfectly suited to Star Wars, and for this new slate of movies that reach beyond the core characters and storylines of Episodes I through IX."

Trank states, "The magic of the Star Wars Universe defined my entire childhood. The opportunity to expand on that experience for future generations is the most incredible dream of all time."

Trank captured imaginations worldwide with his critically lauded directorial debut Chronicle, a fresh and engaging take on the superhero genre. Trank is currently at work on The Fantastic Four for 20th Century Fox.

The Sequel Trilogy / Are You Spoiling Yourself for Episode VII?
« on: June 2, 2014, 11:16 AM »
NOTE: THIS IS A SPOILER FREE THREAD FOR OBVIOUS REASONS - spoiler posts will be removed in their entirety. ;)

Well, the first big test is here.  TMZ has posted a whole bunch of shots reportedly from the set of Episode VII.

Are you gonna look at them?

Are you going to feast on every tidbit you can get your hands on hoping to head into December 2015 pretty much knowing everything that's gonna happen?

Or, are you going to swear off Twitter and Facebook and ignore whole sections of Star Wars fan sites (like this one) hoping and praying to know as little as possible as you head to the theaters in December 2015?

Looks like the upcoming 50th Anniversary Line is going to be available at Big Bad Toy Store as well as TRU.

No idea how BBTS's prices will compare to TRUs, just thought I'd share lthe link for those looking for another option.  ;)

Other Collectibles / Medicom 6" MAFEX Star Wars figures
« on: May 25, 2014, 11:24 PM »
Don't think we have a thread started for these yet (and really, Vader is the only once announced/planned so far).  Here's a bunch of pics anyway (clicky thumbnails for a better look):

         

Retail in Japan will be 4500 Yen and he's due in December 2014.  It'll be pricey to bring one into the USA, but probably worth it if you're a Vader collector.

Other Toy Lines / Acid Rain - by Ori Toy
« on: February 20, 2014, 01:29 PM »
I was looking through the latest BBTS newsletter and I saw these - Acid Rain by someone called Ori Toy.

It's like a 3.75" scale figure line where they pilot/drive Mech/Transformers type vehicles.  The vehicles are expensive ($100+), but they look awesome.  Neat line, but may be too expensive for me to test out sight unseen.  :-\

Anyone have more info or have seen any of these close-up?

Hoth Luke Skywalker with Wampa'd face
Hoth Han Solo

Originally I couldn't tell on Luke, but yeah his face is Wampa'd.  Looks good though.  Pics coming soon on Luke and the Droid.  Han and Vader will wait for SDCC (or sooner if they leak before then :P)!
