Starting a separate thread for these...

The Darth Vader kit has been released in Japan.  Gunjap has a great photoreview of what comes in the kit for those that are curious to see.

The Stormtrooper kit should be out in December.

Now I know how it feels to be the kid who ruined it for everyone else.   :-[

Thanks Jesse for saving me $75. 

I was on the fence about buying these, but now I think I'll pass on all three and wait to see the reviews on the Imp Troop Transport before I decide on that one.

Hope those are not final production pieces...  if so, yuck on the unpainted Tauntaun horns - looked much nicer in the SDCC promo shots.  And ugh on Han still having the blue coat.   ::)

Let's hope we can get things back on track against the lowly Sabres tonight.   :-\

Whew - thank you, Sabres, for sucking so bad!  ;D

Four losses in a row...  7-7-0 now.  Let's hope we can get things back on track against the lowly Sabres tonight.   :-\

In other weirdness, Wild D-men Brodin and Scandella now have the mumps virus that's going around the NHL and will miss the game tonight (and probably more).  D-men Ballard and Folin had it earlier in the year and each missed 5-7 games.  Strange to see a virus like that pop up all over NHL teams (ANA, STL, ?) and even some linesmen/refs have had to sit out with it. 

Hope they figure out how to stop spreading it because with Parise/Cooke out with injuries and Brodin/Scandella out with the mumps, not sure how much more my squad can handle before they end up digging too big a hole for a playoff spot... :(

Still looking for the 2014 SDCC Hot Wheels Darth Vader set?  Good news - it goes up for sale today! 

The Vader car set is priced at $39.99 and will go up for sale at 9:00am Pacific time.  Great chance to get one if you haven't tracked one down yet.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: November 12, 2014, 09:30 AM »
Today's Daily Deal at Entertainment Earth is 50% off a selection of The Clone Wars toys from Hasbro. 

Sale includes eight different figures and the Clone Republic Attack Shuttle.  The sale ends at 11:59pm PST tonight or while supplies last!

I don't really understand the difference though between these, and like those kit figures we've seen too that are available on pre-order places for fair prices.

The S.H. Figuarts figures are action figures.  High quality, fully painted, uber-articulated action figures.  The S.H. Figuarts are put out through Bandai's Tamashi Nations brand which represents their top quality figures for collectors.

The others, the 1/12 Vader and Stormtrooper are model kit figures.  Injection molded, cut it from the sprue and assemble it yourself, model kit.  Complete with water transfer decal kit and Tetoron sealant.  NOT for someone looking to open a package and stick a figure on a shelf.

A late report coming out of the Tamashii Nations 2014 event - apparently prototypes of  the following S.H. Figuarts figures were on display with NO PHOTOS ALLOWED signs:
- Another Han and Luke (NOT the ANH versions linked in the post above)
- Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker
- Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike
- Darth Maul vs. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui Gon Jin 

Time to comb the web for contraband photos. ;)

The FF reboot just keeps on giving...  meet Victor Domashev, anti-social programmer; aka "Doom" on the internet.

My FF loving pal has already sworn off this flick with the casting changes made to Marvel's "first family", can't wait to hear his 45 minute tirade on how changing Victor Von Doom is the new worst thing they can possibly do to the movie... ;)
