The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014
« on: September 25, 2014, 01:35 PM »
The possibility of a preview figure(s) might fly in the face of that level of secrecy.  I get the feeling that the LFL licensing people and Hasbro would like the opportunity to cash in on preview merch, but if the ethos of secrecy is making it's way throughout the Disney/LFL organization, then I think it's likely that any preview items might be limited to characters we already know.

Yeah, they could do a "Jedi Master Luke" or "Old Han Solo" figure as a preview pretty easy without spoiling any of the new characters...  Even a Ep7 Stormtrooper wouldn't too big a spoiler.

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

I'm excited to be going to NYCC this year. 

Got my press pass approved back in August, should be at the show on Thursday, Friday and maybe Saturday AM if anyone wants to meet up. :)

No kidding.  I am so glad I never got into 12" figures.... they look amazing though.

Does this mean that my BMF Falcon is now less accurate?

Yes, because the Falcon also sports a rectangular sensor dish.  ;)

Stupid Lando.  I hope he at least paid for the new dish after smashing the old one.  >:(

That said, the BMF is still perfectly accurate for an OT Falcon...  I'm looking forward to buying the Hasbro Ep7 BMF with updated sensor dish and whatever other "special modifications" Han and Chewie have made since ROTJ.  ;D

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

This past weekend, the Walgreens toy buyer tweeted that solid cases of eight 6" ProtoFetts will hit over 5,000 stores starting in November.

Nice to know that 40k more are on the way for those that are struggling to get one...

Six horror movie Reaction figures are on sale for today's Daily Deal at EE.  Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Trick R Treat, The Crow, and Pinhead are just $8.00 each!

It sounds/looks like it's a custom 3D printed & painted head on a 12" Titan Hero Cap or Iron Man figure in Super Awesome Me packaging. 

Some of the Hasbro and Marvel guys have been posting pics on twitter.  Here's an example:

Oh man, Jesse - those new thirds the Pens showed off today bring back a lot of bad memories #1991cupfinals :(

Revoltech Vader is up for pre-order at BBTS for $64.99.

If you're looking for a cheaper route, he's just 4,675 Yen ($43.11) at Hobby Link Japan, but you'll pay a bit more in shipping getting it straight from Japan.  Still cheaper overall though.

Apparently Zack Snyder (Batman V Superman) and JJ Abrams have been having some weird cross-over twitter battle - between the two of them there have been pics posted of superman with a cloak and lightsaber, C-3PO (The C3Ped Crusader) standing watch over Gotham, GCPD officers arresting a stormtrooper, Batman and R2bin, etc. 

Check out the twitter feeds (@ZackSnyder, @bad_robot) for a look at them.  I guess this video was the latest round of Batman vs. Star Wars thing they have going on... 

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting?
« on: September 18, 2014, 10:33 PM »
Was discussing the explosion of large scale Star Wars figures with someone this morning.  It's kind of incredible how fast it's spreading.

Since Hasbro kicked off the 6" line last year, we've had...
- a new 6" line from Hasbro
- a few 6" MAFEX figures from Medicom (Japan)
- a few 6" SHFiguarts figures from Bandai (Japan)
- a new 12" 5POA line from Hasbro
- a new 12" announcement from Hot Toys (1:6 scale)
- a new 13"-15" line from Disney Stores
- a new 18" announcement from Hot Toys (1:4 scale)
- a new 21" line from Jakks Pacific
- a new 31" line from Jakks Pacific

And there could be more announcements out there

Now we can add...
- a few 6" Revoltech figures from Kaiyodo (Japan)
- a few 6" Play Arts Kai figures from Square Enix (Japan)

That's now FOUR Japanese companies with planned Star Wars figures in the 6"-7" size.  All of them with plans for Vader and at least three are planning on Stormtrooper too. 

I said it before, I'll say it again - it's just amazing to me how fast and wide this large scale figure wave is spreading.  And you all know the merchandising ball is just going to get bigger and bigger as it continues to roll to Episode 7.   :-X

New pics of Revoltech Vader today.

Stands 17cm, so that's 6-11/16" by my math.  Ball jointed cape looks a little wonky, but it sets him apart from Play Arts Vader, MAFEX Vader, SHFigurts Vader, Hasbro Vader, etc. ;)

The Bullpen / Marvel "Super Awesome Me" Action Figures

Get your own Super Awesome Marvel 12" Iron Man or Captain America figure!

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 for a complete list of participating stores

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