Well of the Souls / SDCC'08 Exclusives Revealed
« on: February 17, 2008, 07:52 AM »
One thing I completely spaced until this AM was the SDCC exclusives.  They were not in the slide show, but they were mentioned at the end of the presentation we saw on Indy.

For Indy, we'll see at least 1 (maybe 2) exclusive Mighty Muggs. The only one that is a "for sure" is The Idol from Raiders.  Yep, the idol.  Now you can get that new FX whip and play with your friends - "give me the whip, I give you the idol!"  :)

I was hoping to steer clear of the Muggs, but I'll most likely grab this one.   :D

One other nugget to come out of Hasbro's mouth yesterday - the SDCC exclusives were announced!

No pics yet, but expect to see an exclusive Commander Gree Mighty Muggs and an exclusive Executor Chamber set featuring Vader and a light-up Holo Emperor.  :)

30th Anniversary Collection / TRU "Hoth Patrol" Battle Pack
« on: January 18, 2008, 12:18 AM »
It first showed up at Celebration IV.  Then, at SDCC'07 we found out it was coming in 2008 as an exclusive.

Now, we know "who" picked it up - Toys R Us.  No idea on the "when" just yet, but if it's this far along, it must be sooner rather than later...  ;)

Box full of repacks?  An easy "pass" for me...  ;)

Well of the Souls / Indiana Jones & Toy Fair 2008
« on: January 9, 2008, 12:36 AM »
So... what are you all hoping to see at Toy Fair?

I'm hoping to see more from Hasbro than just the upcoming KotCS stuff.  It would be nice to get a look at some of the things that they are planning for TLC and ToD.  :)

Watto's Junk Yard / The Great 2008 Collector's Challenge
« on: January 1, 2008, 09:35 PM »
Time for... The Official Thread for 2008.   :)

For Reference:
The Great 2007 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2006 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2005 Collector's Challenge
The Great 2004 Collector's Challenge


I am really, really hoping to get my spending back below the $1500 per year mark this year. 

I haven't been able to keep my spending that low since I started the Kubrick thing in late 2004 (damn 'brick addiction), but that won't stop me from trying to limit things (and failing miseably) in 2008.  ;)

30th Anniversary Collection / TFU Stormtrooper Commander

Well of the Souls / Hasbro Indy Adventure Heroes
« on: December 14, 2007, 03:17 PM »
Since it was hard to separate out the AH talk from the other SDCC and speculation threads, I thought I'd start this one fresh -

Wave 1:

We also know based on the SDCC pics that RotLA Marion is coming eventually too...

This line is an easy choice for me - the boys love the GH figures, so I er, we will definitely pick these up... :)

The Legacy Collection / Legacy Wave 2 - Clone Wars Micro-Series
« on: December 7, 2007, 09:11 PM »
Let the speculation begin!   :)

From Hasbro:

Wave 3 will feature one character that will be an upgrade over a previous character released in an early 2007 Battle Pack. The rest of the characters in the wave will be from the same source (movie or otherwise) as that character. That's more than enough hint to get started, and that's all we'll say for right now!



Pre-Orders begin December 14th 2007 at 10AM PDT.

I may have to break down and pick up my first Sideshow 12" figure.   :-\

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Clone Wars Preview Figure - Captain Rex
« on: November 9, 2007, 02:43 PM »
OK, one of the things that popped up during the JD downtime was a SSG story on a possible preview figure for the 2008 Clone Wars line...


Looks like you can buy any 4 Saga Legends figures or 30AC figures and use the UPCs... here's hoping it's something that is worth army building as I have a LOT of UPCs from the last 12 months.  ;)
