The Bullpen / Marvel "Super Awesome Me" Action Figures
« on: September 18, 2014, 11:18 AM »
Get your own Super Awesome Marvel 12" Iron Man or Captain America figure!

Quote
Think you'd look just as good as Tony Stark in an Iron Man suit? Beginning this week, you can test that theory for real.

Hasbro and 3DPlusMe are teaming on the Super Awesome Me experience, allowing kids of all ages to see their face on a customized Iron Man or Captain America action figure. The initiative launches on Friday as part of Disney Consumer Products' Marvel Super Hero September in 10 Walmart and two Sam's Club stores around the country.

Locations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston will be outfitted with special in-store scanning stations where the machine will capture the likeness of potential superheroes, folks choose between the two characters, and their Super Awesome Me toy a personalized 12-inch articulated figure with a full-color printed head for $45 will be available to pick up at Walmart stores or shipped to Sam's Club members in four weeks.

Visit SuperAwesomeMe.com for a complete list of participating stores

I wonder how long before Disney does this for Clone Troopers and/or Stormtroopers...?   :D

Great news everyone!  Another Japanese toy company (Square Enix) will be adding Darth Vader to their larger-scale figure line (Play Arts Kai).   :P

Well, we did our games draft last weekend and training camp is right around the corner so I thought it was time for a new thread... :)

Thu, Oct 23 Phoenix
Sun, Nov 16 Winnipeg
Sat, Nov 29 St. Louis
Wed, Dec 17 Boston
Fri, Jan 2 Toronto
Thu, Jan 8 Chicago
Mon, Jan 19 Columbus

A nice mix.  Four from the Central (WIN, STL, CHI, COL), four from the Pacific (PHX, LA, VAN, EDM), and four from the Eastern Conference (TOR, DET, BOS, CBJ).

Hope the Rebels collectors enjoy spending $20 for the exclusive Hologram Obi-Wan "Secret Figure" since you'll already have the basic Kanan and Ezra by the time it comes out!  ;)

Other Collectibles / Revoltech Star Wars Figures

Yet another new license is awarded to a Japanese toy/collectibles company - Disney cashes in again!

Sorry I can't do up something nicer at the moment (too busy at work), but www.taghobby.com has pics of the prototypes for the Revoltech Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, C-3PO, and R2-D2 figures that were shown at this past weekend's Wonder Festival in Japan!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 7
« on: July 25, 2014, 11:18 PM »
So... Wave 7 thread time!

Looks like this will be the Wave 7 breakdown... though nothing is final until Hasbro says so.  Clicky for the bigger pics.

According to the little signs at SDCC (which have been known to be wrong in the past), it seems like this wave may end up being -

Stormtrooper Han
Bossk
C-3PO (rumored)

Supposedly due February 2015!

Coming this Fall to Target - the 6" Imperial Shadow Squadron Box Set.

Includes Special Black Ops Speeder Bike with Shadow Scout and Shadow Stormtrooper Commander.

Makes me wonder when we'll see a standard 6" Shadow Stormtrooper to join them.   :D

Other Collectibles / Jakks Pacific 20" Star Wars Figure Line
« on: July 24, 2014, 01:09 PM »
So, I guess Jakks will be making 20" Star Wars figures for all the fans who wished there was something larger than Hasbro's 5POA 12" figures, but smaller than Jakks' 31" figures.

More info coming up from Comic-Con, but it looks like there will be a number of store exclusives for folks to chase...

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.
