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

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.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Acid Rain - by Ori Toy

I know, right?  I saw those pics and was blown away and then cried a little inside when I saw the price.

Like you said, that two piece tank thing that transforms into a base and Mech/walker thing is so bad-ass.  I'd love to see this stuff get picked up into wider release somehow to bring the cost down.

Very cool stuff though.  Might have to keep an eye on more of these "designer" 3.75" scale companies that are out there (like the Aliens thing you were talking about the other day).

Thanks Jeff for grabbing a pic of this. I didn't see it anywhere else

Hooray, my ignorance over what is old and what is new leading to me just taking pictures of stuff I thought was cool pays off. ;)

Other Toy Lines / Acid Rain - by Ori Toy
« on: February 20, 2014, 01:29 PM »
I was looking through the latest BBTS newsletter and I saw these - Acid Rain by someone called Ori Toy.

It's like a 3.75" scale figure line where they pilot/drive Mech/Transformers type vehicles.  The vehicles are expensive ($100+), but they look awesome.  Neat line, but may be too expensive for me to test out sight unseen.  :-\

Anyone have more info or have seen any of these close-up?

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

Not really.  Typically when Target does this type of thing here in MN, they choose stores across the state that have similar traffic/sales numbers to try to normalize the data they are collecting.

Not sure where to put this, so I'll stick it here - I've started hearing reports from quite a few folks (including the locals here in MN) that Target is doing it's annual Post-Christmas "price exploring".

So far we've seen reports of:
- Saga Legends as low as $5.69 and as high as $7.59, depending on the store
- Mission Series as low as $8.99 and as high as $10.99, depending on the store
- 3.75" Black Series completely clearanced out at some stores or price-hiked to $10.99 at others
- 6" Black Series as low at $18.99 or as high as $21.89 at some stores.

Target is usually pretty consistent from store-to-store, except when they go on these Spring price exploring adventures.  It always seems to normalize itself by summer resets though...


Here's the deal.  List your top 15 from the following lists (and ONLY from these lists).  I'll tally them and then Jeff will hand deliver them to Hasbro at Toy Fair. 

This got lost in the shuffle of Toy Fair, but I wanted to confirm that I did pass off the results of the JD Wishlist to Hasbro last Saturday.

As always, Hasbro was happy to receive them and appreciative of all the effort that goes into voting and compiling the results each year.

Scott has said it before, but it is no coincidence that so many characters on our wishlists end up becoming Hasbro figures. ;)

All the "why are there no lady Rebels action figures" folks can relax - via Newsarama, Hasbro confirms Hera, Sabine figures coming; will be debuted at SDCC.
