I'm afraid this thread is just going to devolve into the "Jeff tries to keep his expectations in check" thread these next three weeks...

Other Collectibles / Bandai Star Wars Converge Figures
« on: March 17, 2015, 10:39 PM »
Anyone buying these?  (Yes, it's ANOTHER new Star Wars line/scale from Japan :P)

Series 1 (Vader, Stormtrooper, Yoda, R2-D2) came out a little while ago and Bandai just announced Series 2 (Jango, AOTC Clone, C-3PO, Maul).

The latent Kubrick collector in me keeps thinking I should at least check these out...  :-\

Dang you Jeff. If someone else hasn't already claimed one, ie I don't want to take the other from Justin, I'll take one. Thanks.

I have you covered Nick...

BBTS is one of the only US places I've seen taking orders for them.

I'd still like to pick one up but just haven't pulled the trigger on which of the four versions I want most...

Thanks Jeff.  I just have the Target pack-in version, so looks like I need to get my hands on a Wave 3 basic fig...

Here's an interesting coincidence - I happen to have two for sale if you need one... ;)

Another review, this time the Alien Lurker figure.

Also, Hiya is doing a fan poll on the Marines...

Thanks for the tip!  Grabbed a couple Endor Hans for my Han collection.

Dubnyk, 41 saves on 42 shots; first Wild regulation win in STL since 2007.

With the Wild, since Jan 15 (MY BIRTHDAY!)
20-5-1  --  1.66 GAA  -- .939 SV%

Hot goalies steal cups all the time, this might be it for the Wild.

Damn you for planting this seed...  but oh, the joy if... I can't even say it.   :-X :-\

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII

It'll be a busy start to 2017 for sure - Disney has 3 big sequels in a six week span...

05-05-2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
05-26-2017 - Episode 8
06-16-2017 - Toy Story 4

Got my Legends Bespin Han today.  The Kenner nostalgia of these 5POA figs is much more effective onme for a figure like this where the Kenner version was in my top five favorites as a kid. :)

The fact that they are now trying to work functional holsters onto the figures is greatly appreciated.  Makes me wish even more that the Mission Series ANH Han had been given a holster. :-\

Star Wars Universe / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One

Will spinoffs have a series all their own, like how Iron Man is his own series?  I'm wondering if they'll go that route or one-and-done type deals.

The original plan I thought I read was to just do random, one-off movies.  But, like everything else, if they stumble onto something that makes a bajilion dollars, I could see them making a "Rogue One 2". :P

You bring up an interesting point about potential for figures...  Whatever they make, it'll be a pretty short run.  There's a really small window for any retail line if the Episode 8 stuff will be hitting in March/April 2017. 

I think I saw Jayson joking on Twitter about how Hasbro is taking/planning for all these movies...  assuming they need a buffer in-between to clear out retail to make room for the next line, could we see something like:

Ep7 toy line = September 2015 - July 2016
Rogue One toy line = September 2016 - February 2017
Ep8 toy line = April 2017 - whenever the next stand-alone comes along

And people still think there will be a lot of room at retail for large PT/OT figure lines and Rebels and whatever else...?  How this is all going to work is still the most curious part for me, aside from the scales and the prices.

Stand Alone #1 Update from LFL

"Rogue One is the title for the first film in a unique series of big-screen adventures that explores the characters and events beyond the core Star Wars saga. Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (Cinderella, About a Boy, Antz). The first actress cast is Felicity Jones, who garnered an Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim for her performance in The Theory of Everything. The idea for the story of Rogue One came from John Knoll, an Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic. He will executive produce along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds). Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (Band of Brothers, The Pacific) are on board to produce and John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will co-produce. The film starts shooting this summer in London and is due for release on December 16, 2016."
