It's official - 2015 SDCC 6" First Order Stormtrooper

The first Hasbro action figure from The Force Awakens will be this 6-inch figure from the toy manufacturer’s Black Series of collectibles. As part of a Comic-Con exclusive, the packaging will be unique to the San Diego gathering, and only a limited number will be available for sale afterward via It’s recommended for ages 4 and up, with a pricetag of $24.99.

Moment of Silence for Count Dooku and Saruman.   He lived a full and amazing life and has hundreds of acting credits but he'll always be these two characters for me.

When I was a kid I loved all things James Bond, so I'd have to add Scaramanga, the Man with the Golden Gun, to the list to complete my Christopher Lee character-trinity.

I want to see a 6-7 game series, not interested in seeing a Cup Final sweep. :P

Thank you Tampa and Chicago for making things interesting so far.  Bishop drama, Toews finally waking up, The triplets tripleting, etc.  Been a good run so far.

Meanwhile, on the "ugh, not this again" channel - Glendale sucks.  It's way past time for the Coyotes to go.  Maybe they only have to go as far as Scottsdale, maybe as far as Quebec.  But, it's obvious it's more than past the time they need to leave Glendale once and for all.

"look for some exclusive Star Wars: The Force Awakens products at SDCC, and be sure to check out tomorrow for details."

SDCC 6" First Order Stormtrooper announcement time?  We've already seen the figure and the box, why not finally announce it. :P

Some Hasbro Star Wars panel details:
Join members of the Hasbro and Lucasfilm teams as they discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line. Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro’s latest action figure offerings, and word on the Holonet is there may also be a few surprises, including a special product reveal.

So... "special product reveal" has to mean finally showing us the first batch of TFA toys, right?

Yeah, I was waiting for Drogon.  That was pretty good, but I too wished he would have ripped up a few more Harpies before taking off with Dany. 

The look on Tyrion's face during all of that was just great.  Peter Dinklage really captured the "WTF just happened" moment nicely.

(although no base is included; does anyone know to what kind of base this attaches, because I would like to purchase one)

Most of the Japanese bases are *mostly* interchangable.  I've had the best luck with the Tamashii Stage stands.  I use the Act 4 stand for the human/figures and the Act 5 stages for my Gundam/robots.  There have some cool options too - flames, magic, bricks, stone under the Tamashii Impact line

Take a look at those BBTS links and maybe try one of the Act 4 or Impact stages - you should be able to detach the stand arm it comes with and swap out your Revo stand arm parts.  I've had them work fine with figures from the Revoltech, Robot Spirits and SHFiguarts lines.

James Wan to Direct Jason Momoa in Warner Bros. Pictures’ Upcoming Aquaman Feature

Sorry, Vincent Chase.  You still lost the role to the (Sea)Horselord AquaDrogo.

Seeing lots of rumors that this set will be one of those "buy it first at SDCC" sets like TRU has done the past few years (last year's was the Han/Greedo 6" 2-pack).

Still can't believe Hasbro is putting an all-new Jabba in a $130 pack filled out with repacks.  I do not understand at all the desire that some collectors have for Hasbro to put one new thing in every battle pack, especially these $100+ sets.

Just seems like a dick way to get people to buy your over-priced box of repacks by sneaking one new thing in there.   :-\

Putting this here to troll the "we want playsets" thread...  :D

Another SDCC exclusive via Entertainment Earth - KISS Alive II Stage with 1:20 Scale Action Figures - $159.99

That's right - $160 gets you four 3.75" scale action figures and a limited edition, light-up stage with working wireless speaker.

Makes you wonder what Hasbro could give you for Episode 7 for that same $160.  Other than just re-issuing the BMF, that is. ;)

I'm not necessarily rooting for the Bolts... I 'm rooting for the speedy Bolts to fair better than the speedy Wild did.  I want to see a 6-7 game series, not interested in seeing a Cup Final sweep. :P

I would be happy with either team winning...  but I do think, speaking from a "oh man, TSN is going to drag this stuff out all year" perspective, Stamkos winning a cup is pretty interesting.  I mean, TSN has been talking about Stamkos to Toronto for a year already...  if he wins a cup?  Woo!

I just picture Stamkos and his Agent, rolling into Steve Yzerman's office with the Stanley Cup, copies of Toews/Kane's 8 yr, $84mil contracts, and saying "your move" while Toronto sits with Babcock behind the wheel of a Brinks truck parked outside Stamkos' house.  :D
