The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII

Episode VIII Officially Delayed until Dec 15, 2017

Quote
Today, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release in summer 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017.

The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861.3 million and the third biggest global release ever with $1,886.7 billion.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently in preproduction and will begin principal photography in London next month. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman will produce and J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski will executive produce. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the coming weeks.

Other Collectibles / Re: Hasbro Force FX Lightsabers
« on: January 15, 2016, 02:20 PM »
does Hasbro still make the Ultimate FX sabers (the kid's size version of these?).

There is a TRU exclusive Ultimate FX Kylo Ren Saber ($65) and that's it right now.  The rest of what was out there was old stock, which has been drying up.  Sold out at most on-line shops last Fall for the most part.

Like you said, Disney has a version, but it looks like Hasbro is focusing more on the "Bladebuilders" style mashing/building lightsabers instead right now.

the show already has a baby. It doesn't need another one.

So now we all see your true colors - you hate babies on TV shows.  You're probably glad that no babies got Oscar nominations too... #ageist #babyhater

I liked it.  I have no problem with Ahsoka and CW being mixed into this show.  Really looking forward to the Skyguy/Snips reunion (assuming that's not some mind rip/dream/vision) and Ezra meeting "The Old Master". Looks like a fun ride.

Kill everybody.

Except Maggie.

(But make her abort the baby.)

Wait, you want her to abort her own baby?  You, sir, are a monster.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #2 - Han Solo!
« on: January 14, 2016, 10:34 AM »
After careful consideration I have decided that I don't want this movie to happen at all. Han Solo should only be played by Harrison Ford.

Yeah, there is an argument to be made that way for sure. Some of the names on that list would be really, really, really bad choices for Han. :(

It'll be interesting to see how these go.  Funko was charging $10 for the 5POA reaction stuff... I wonder how much Funko will charge us after adding elbow/knee joints?  And how will that price be received by a collecting public that thinks $13 is too much for SA Star Wars figures. :P

Same with the not-to-scale "The Wall" display piece they are going to offer (and make no mistake, it's an action figure display and not a playset).  I wonder how much that will be.

Is that... a soft good skirt?!?  Wow, nice to see maybe some hint that maybe they are starting to improve the 5POA figures just a little bit.  Maybe?

Jungle/Space Wave 4 =
forest = Resistance Rey, Han Solo, Hassk Thug
space = X-Wing Poe, TIE Pilot, Resistance Trooper (re-issues **)

This wave is now up for pre-order at EE:
- Case of 12
- Set of 6

Sounds like the Jungle/Space Wave 5 will be up for pre-order at EE soon as well...

The Force Awakens / Re: TFA 3.75" First Order Legion 7-Pack Box Set
« on: January 12, 2016, 10:33 AM »
Got my set last night and the box/design is really cool.  Great presentation of the figures.

Like others have said, really hoping the Riot Guys and Heavy Artillery guys get a re-issue as I'd buy another of each, for sure.  :)

That hood is a puzzler.  Really hoping it's removable, otherwise why bother? Like others said, how often did he wear hood with no mask?

Strange design choice if it's not removable...  :-\

Glad to see the Squad Leader trooper is the same as the one packed in the Amazon 7-pack.

It is not the same.  The Amazon Heavy Artillery is slightly different.  #1, Amazon Heavy Artillery trooper has the big gun with stand.  #2, Squad Leader Stormtrooper's gear is different - it looks like this basic figure version possibly has a white pauldron on his right shoulder and an ammo pack on his left shoulder side (Sandtrooper style).
