Kubricks / Re: Recent Acquisitions
« on: April 18, 2016, 10:03 AM »
pretty cool to open up some Kubricks again!

Your post just reminds me how bummed I am that we didn't get a TFA series.  Would have been so perfect: Basic 6 = Finn, Rey, Poe, BB-8, FO Stormie, Kylo; Chases = Han (Rey box) and 'Ben' (Kylo Box); Super-Rare Chase = Phasma (FO Stormie box)

*sigh*  :(

Missed it a few days ago, but I guess this has a name now - Spider-Man: Homecoming (WARNING - potential "Spider-Man in Civil War" spoilers at the end of the story):

And it sounds like they are looking at Michael Keaton to play the bad guy...

The movie is supposedly sticking to the comic origin, where Strange travels to Asia to learn mystical powers from the Ancient One.  Rather than have an Asian play the guy from Asia (!), we're getting a rich white guy travelling to Asia where a powerful white woman will teach him the secret mysteries of an Asian culture.  I have to think it's a lot more offensive to write an Asian out of an Asian role, but whatever.

Angry Asian Man doesn't seem too thrilled by it...



Hopefully Disney and Hasbro are working together better so we don't get a Zuvio-like figure that jams the pegs with a background or non-existent character.

No pegwarmers...  good one, Dave. 

On a related note, check out this Zuvio story from EW today.  Shows you just how tapped in Hasbro was with Disney for TFA -

On Zuvio: “They had no idea and, frankly, we wouldn’t know either back when we were shooting, if he would end up in the final cut.” -JJ Abrams

Really looking forward to that Starkiller Han figure...   probably because it could be the last SA 3.75" Han they make until the Han stand-alone flick hits.   :-\

Funko GoT 3.75" stuff is up for pre-order at EE!  Due June 2016 -

Game of Thrones 3.75" Wave 1 Single Figures ($9.99)

3.75" Tyrion/Wall Playset ($29.99)

$10 each?  Not bad considering the size of the line/company.  Kind of a nice split here with a bit more than 5POA and not quite the $15 price that SA 3.75" figure lines are charging these days.  And even $30 for the playset with figure isn't all that unreasonable the way prices are these days...

I'm not offended when I see a white cowboy.

You might be though if the only time a white guy showed up in a movie was when the movie needed a cowboy...  :-\

It's a fine line Disney is trying to walk - you don't want to take away minority roles... but at the same time they have to be careful with stereotypes.  This 'wise old master' one is a good one.  Do you go "Mr. Miyagi" and cast to type or do you do something different?  Either way some segment is going to be upset in today's outrage culture.

I really like the way Marvel is doing things - you nail the look of the main guy (Thor, IM, Strange, Cap, etc) and then you play a bit with the smaller roles to make the movie world look more like today's real world and less like 60s' comic book world.  That was kind of one of the very few things that Man of Steel got right with Fishburn/Perry White I thought.

So rumor has it a SA Jedi Luke is in the near future.

Jedi Luke or Ep7 Luke?  Because they already did SA Jedi Luke in Wave 1. ;)

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)
« on: April 8, 2016, 11:21 PM »
We've seen some amazing looking creatures realized as digital characters, but have we ever really seen a human character convincingly realized as a digital character? 

Maybe Disney has made some advances in that area since they tried it in TRON: Legacy with CLU/young Jeff Bridges?

Jesse's hope for a decent RFT figure is possibly renewed!  :D

Yep, because if there's one thing in this world Jesse has wanted forever, it's a new 5POA RFT figure.   :-X

Shaping up to be an exciting finish in the Central.

If the Stars win on Saturday, they get the streaky, yet potentially dangerous in the playoffs MN Wild (we've beat the #1 two years in a row, you know).

If the Stars lose and STL wins... the Stars get the Blackhawks in round 1, while STL gets the Wild.

And the 3-way battle in the East w/BOS, DET, PHI, is shaping up to be fun too.  Going to keep pulling for DET and BOS because everyone hates it when the Flyers miss the playoffs (or at least I know it'll make the two Jesses here very happy to see BOS in and PHI out :P).

Yep. DPCI = 087-06-0194
