Other Collectibles / Tamashii (Bandai) S.H.Figuarts Star Wars Figures
« on: October 31, 2014, 12:40 PM »
Hmm... we don't have a thread for these yet?  Odd.  Now we do, I guess.   :D

In addition to the previously revealed Darth Vader and Stormtrooper figures, Bandai Tamashii Nations are planning ANH Han Solo and ANH Luke Skywalker figures too. 

Han and Luke prototypes are apparently on display at the Tamashii Nations 2014 event at Akihabara, which is going on this week.  Despite all the NO PHOTOS ALLOWED signs surrounding the figures, pics are starting to pop up online


It's worth noting that the Tamashii Nations event is notorious for revealing/showing items that are NOT intended for release yet.  There are often prototypes displayed for informational purposes (highlighting figures that were sculpted but ultimately rejected for retail due to cost or other issues) or prototypes that are being displayed to gauge fan reaction in order to determine whether they should be released or scrapped.  Not saying this is for sure the case with Han and Luke, but you never know...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / NYCC 2014
« on: September 25, 2014, 11:29 AM »
I'll be attending NYCC this year, including Hasbro's 'Twas the Night Before party on Wednesday October 8th, so I thought I'd start up a thread...

The Hasbro party invite is promising "new reveals" for Star Wars - sure hope that means NEW new reveals and not just stuff they've already teased or shown in press pics.   :P

The Bullpen / Marvel "Super Awesome Me" Action Figures

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... :)

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
« on: July 29, 2014, 01:00 PM »
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.


44
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
