The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014

Our Hasbro image galleries are going live...  I put up some Marvel and Transformers stuff too, but since I know very little about those lines anymore, I really had no idea what was new or old or whatever.  Clicky the button below to check them out!

This Threepio is just a reissue of VC06, correct?

It's a bit tiny bit of a kitbash, but the base (90%) is the TVC 3PO, yeah.  Definitely the dud of the wave...  but Mosep and New Han and New Boussh and new Jawas make me not really care if he sucks.  ;)

Back at the hotel now and working on the nicer pics from my Nikon (though my iPhone did pretty good for the twitter stuff). 

I was so tempted to just grab that Han and run...  :-[

Oh and the Carbonite Block.  Just awesome...  detail on the side panels was great (but... it is a hand painted proto so the final probably won't be so nice :().

ps - I apologize to the 6" collectors because after looking through my pics, I definitely was way more interested taking pics of the 3.75" stuff.   :-X

Just a reminder the #HasbroParty is tonight! 

I'll be tweeting from the event via my @jlsmentek twitter account, but I'll make sure to retweet them on the @jedidefender account as well!

Another great deal with Travis.  Thanks again for the speedy payment. :)

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - 5 POA Animated Style Figs

I can't imagine Rebels did as well as TCW in terms of ratings either.  TCW had the film to launch it, and there was just a lot going on.  This feels very different.

With TCW, it seemed like LFL was looking for "the next big thing" for Star Wars.  With SWR, it seems like Disney is just looking for a bridge to the next big thing - Episode 7. 

Rebels just seems like Disney's way to get kids introduced to OT things - TIE Fighters, Stormtroopers, The Empire, etc.  That's why it won't surprise me if teenage Princess Leia or young Han Solo and Chewbacca end up on this show so kids learn who they are and what "the rebels" are all about to get them primed for Episode 7.  Even a trip where Kanan has to visit Obi-Wan on Tatooine and Ezra "accidentally" runs into 13-yr old Luke on an adventure wouldn't surprise me.

Yeah, I agree that Hasbro/Disney are missing the boat by not having a bunch of stuff ready for Rebels launch... but I always kinda got the sense that Disney/Hasbro was happy to miss this boat (putting Rebels figures in with Legends figures...  again seeding the kids with OT stuff) while they construct the SUPER-MEGA-ULTRA-SHIP they will be launching this time next year. :P

I haven't watched "Droids in Distress" yet, but I guess you can download it for free on itunes now too...  might have to try that when I get home tonight so the kiddos can watch it over and over even when we're away from wi-fi. :P

Yeah, it was a bad sign when many etailers weren't even taking pre-orders on the basic Rebels/Legends figures until last week...  and most of those etailers have a November arrival date now.

Revo Stormtrooper Update

Joining Kaiyodo's Revoltech Darth Vader is this loyal Stormtrooper. Using their patented joint system, this soldier of the Empire can do a ton of poses with his included blaster rifle and long range gun. Coming January 2015 for 5,200 yen.

Look for pre-orders to hit soon.  Keep an eye on BBTS (for US orders) or HLJ (for import orders).  I'll toss up the links when I see them. ;)

Conventions / Re: New York Comic-Con

Yeah, other than exclusive prints/art, I think Hallmark is the only one to announce any Star Wars exclusives:

Hallmark - itty bitty Tusken Raider and Bantha (300 per day); Wampa Keepsake Ornament (200 per day)

LEGO will be there, but I haven't seen them announce anything yet.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII
« on: October 2, 2014, 02:26 PM »
It sounds like a MAJOR, movie-ruining Episode VII SPOILER has hit the net.  The story (but not the spoiler apparently) can be found HERE

It's making me seriously consider staying out of this thread (and off facebook and the JediDefender Twitter feed) for the next year to do everything I can to avoid having the movie ruined...  :-\

I could be wrong, but based on the placards in the hasbro display it appears that:

Clone Trooper Sergeant
TIE Fighter Pilot

are all scheduled for December 2014.

From the pre-orders that popped up this weekend, it looks like the repack that will be joining them is...  ROTS Obi-Wan.

Is Hasbro doing a Q&A?

All they have confirmed so far is that there will be new product on display.  There has been no confirmation yet on who (if anyone) from Hasbro's Star Wars team will be there. 

If it's just Hasbro's PR group and no one from the Star Wars team is there, I doubt any sort of Q&A will be worthwhile.  If Star Wars guys show up, then I'm sure we'll be asking them some things.

Watched it today with one of the boys.  Really well done.  Not sure I'm a fan of the animation style, but the story was pretty good and it seems a lot kid friendlier than Clone Wars.  Clone Wars started out so mild, but just got darker and darker as they lost kids but kept the adults.  And no "Skyguy" and "Snips" cringe-worthy dialogue for the most part.
