Other Collectibles / Tamashii (Bandai) S.H.Figuarts Star Wars Figures
« on: October 31, 2014, 12:40 PM »
Hmm... we don't have a thread for these yet?  Odd.  Now we do, I guess.   :D

In addition to the previously revealed Darth Vader and Stormtrooper figures, Bandai Tamashii Nations are planning ANH Han Solo and ANH Luke Skywalker figures too. 

Han and Luke prototypes are apparently on display at the Tamashii Nations 2014 event at Akihabara, which is going on this week.  Despite all the NO PHOTOS ALLOWED signs surrounding the figures, pics are starting to pop up online

It's worth noting that the Tamashii Nations event is notorious for revealing/showing items that are NOT intended for release yet.  There are often prototypes displayed for informational purposes (highlighting figures that were sculpted but ultimately rejected for retail due to cost or other issues) or prototypes that are being displayed to gauge fan reaction in order to determine whether they should be released or scrapped.  Not saying this is for sure the case with Han and Luke, but you never know...

Got my shipping notice from EE tonight! :)

Hard to believe that once this case gets here, I won't have anything 3.75" Black Series to buy until next year...  unless there are some hidden exclusives out there waiting to be announced... but it doesn't seem like it.

This is the sport with the orange ball and the hoop I can't reach, right?

I think we used to have a professional basketball team here in Minnesota, but I think they moved a while back...

After the way they coughed up a 3-0 lead in NYC last night, it was nice to see them come back and steal that one in Boston tonight. :)

The Wild aren't perfect by any stretch (the goalkeeping, the horrid power play), but 5-on-5 they are a hell of a team this year - so fast, so skilled...  but man are they taking a beating by the bigger teams, which just makes the horrible power play even worse.  If you're built on speed and hoping to make teams pay for hitting you, NOT scoring any power play goals kinda defeats the purpose.

Scariest part is that as fantastic as the Wild have looked this year, they are still not even a top five team in the West yet.

So, if you mix everything together, you get...

05/01/15 - Avengers: Age of Ultron
07/17/15 - Ant-Man
03/25/16 - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
05/06/16 - Captain America: Civil War
08/05/16 - Suicide Squad
11/04/16 - Doctor Strange
05/05/17 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
06/23/17 - Wonder Woman
07/28/17 - Thor: Ragnarok
11/03/17 - Black Panther
11/17/17 - Justice League (Part I)
03/23/18 - The Flash
05/04/18 - Avengers: Infinity War (Part I)
07/06/18 - Captain Marvel
07/27/18 - Aquaman
11/02/18 - Inhumans
04/05/19 - Shazam
05/03/19 - Avengers: Infinity War (Part II)
06/14/19 - Justice League (Part II)
04/03/20 - Cyborg
06/19/20 - Green Lantern

- Just stop and look at that for a minute.  That is ridiculous.  And it doesn't even include the Fox stuff or the Sony Spider-Man stuff.  At what point does regular, non-fanboy America put their hands up and say "enough already with all the super-hero movies!"

- One more thing, made clear again by the Marvel announcements today - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still a horrible movie title.   Great name for a legal essay examining the Batman v Superman court case though.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

Some Walgreens news from Walgreens Toy Buyer Steve Anne:

Oct 23:
Chicago area starting to get some Star Wars Black back in stock. Other areas of the country starting next week.

Oct 25
Star Wars Black 6" - Wave 5 and Proto Boba Fett hitting our warehouses now. Wave 6 on order and following a couple months after.

Thanks to a push from BB's Aaron Paul, the KEEP BB on the shelves at TRU is up over 30k.

I'll guess that the figures will eventually come back, but not until all of this has died down and the big media won't notice.  :P

Guess you can add SOFUBI Chewie to the family.

I am so looking forward to the thirty-seventh installment of SEVEN HUNDRED HOBO NAMES

I have this sneaky feeling that Hobo Name 363 is going to rock (although it will be hard to top "Sweet Daddy Champagne").

Still waiting...  just 24 installments to go!

Stll waiting...  just 14 installments to go!

Saw this rumored on Twitter so I thought I'd post it here sine HissTank is usually pretty reputable...

You've been warned. ;)

Season 5 Spoilers here.

I know it bugs some people, but I love it when they change stuff from the books, especially if it means we get more [spoiler] and to see him with our Mother of Dragons Khaleesi?  Awesome.

Also been reading a bit about the planned flashbacks that are coming in Season 5.  Interesting choice to go that route, but again it's a nice way to stall the main story to help spread the books out without losing certian characters for large chunks of the season. 

Deep down I'm hoping for a Ned/Lyanna/Tower of Joy flashback just to see Sean Bean again... but that might give away too much book plot if they showed us who/what was there.  :-X
