The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII
« on: March 18, 2014, 03:12 PM » -> Episode VII Set to Roll Cameras May 2014

It has also been confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VII is set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, and will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces. No further details on casting or plot are available at this time.

Don't pay that
It's definitely not worth paying double for Fett, or any 5poa figure for that matter. 
Don't do it. 

Don't fall into peer pressure, Rob.  Go buy that $14 figure!  Do it!

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 2

I thought they had already confirmed they would be doing special larger size packaging for Darth and Chewie?

The new Blue/Black packaging has the same size box but with a larger window (ditching the border).  Unfortunately for Chewbacca, we're not changing over until later in the year.

That Snowtrooper looked like a $5 figure to me at first. Weird.

We are getting a new snowtrooper in both lines - there is a new 5POA one in the Legends line and this SA Snowtrooper Commander in the Black Series.

I wanted a poseable (hyper poseable) Dagobah Training Luke since the day we got the OTC figure, honestly.  I hated the limited use of that figure from Day 1.  I wanted a Luke that can do it all, and he and this Yoda fill that role perfectly to me.

I like the OTC one for the handstanding arms/stand, I thought that was a great way to do it at the time.  But this new SA arms version, while looking a bit funky is appreciated.  Like you said, if I wanted a static pose arms version, I've already got that.

I broke down and ordered one of the $20 figures last night.  Thanks again Hasbro for not giving me any new Star Wars figures to buy for a while.  :-\  #dabblingisdangerous

I'm hoping to stay within the Gundam Wing realm on these, but I'm already tempted by the original RX-78-2 Gundam and the GM Sniper II (0080 War in the Pocket).

Well, it's 6 months later and I have managed to stay Gundam Wing only on these, BUT.... with each new figure I get, I love this line more and more.

I saw a few more at Toy Fair and man I'm tempted by that 0080 GM Sniper II and the new Vifam that is coming out.  :-\

So I finally had a chance last night to go looking for this.  I saw a few comparison pics on their facebook page with a GI Joe Storm Shadow figure.  Very cool.

I'm not sure what it is, but a lot of this 'designer' 3.75" stuff is really tempting me lately.  I've got one of the Acid Rain figures on pre-order at BBTS, I'm really tempted to throw one of these guys into the mix now too.  Maybe have him hiding out in the corner of my Cantina set-up or something. :P

I didn't... but I did read the episode synopses this morning before work - is everyone looking forward to the Jar Jar / Mace Windu story arc?  :-X

Aah, trade deadline feeding frenzy day.  Glad it was a good show this year.  Wild made some nice injury-related upgrades at Goalie and Forwards (top 6 and bottom 6), too bad we couldn't flip Brodziak, Heatley, or Rupp for some 3rd pair D help.

Should be in a good position to protect our playoff spot.  As much as I'd like to catch up to Colorado, we're almost better off staying in a Wild Card slot and facing off against a Cali team or even Chicago versus St. Louis.  Those guys seem to have our number for some reason. :(

Hall of Justice / Re: 2014 DC Multiverse 4" Figure Line
« on: March 4, 2014, 10:07 AM »
Is this going to be the equivalent of a MU line for DC?

Not really.  It's mostly based on video game and or old movie designs.  Doesn't really seem like it's going to stray much beyond Batman/Superman according to Mattel.

Hmmm...  looks like Disney has set their master plan in motion by adding Lando Calrissian to the next season of Dancing with the Stars.  That's one way to get the OT actors back in shape and back in the spotlight again. :P

What if The Ghost is both?  A Rebels ship AND an Ep7 ship. 

Thought about that the other day... based on the era of the show, it wouldn't be impossible for The Ghost to be around in Ep7... or any of the Rebels crew for that matter.  Even something as simple as the same ship type/class showing up in both.  Help it sell both ways - cartoon and movie.   ;D

Any "scoops" I had have been put into the relevant threads by now.  Most of my talks with them were "off the record" type conversations about the general future and health of the line, nothing about "when will character X get a figure" or "why does distribution suck" or whatever.
