In-Stock at BBTS.  $70 for the three figures isn't a terrible price. 

It would kind of be cool if the first 6" Fan Choice figure was the same as the 3.75" (McQuarrie Stormtrooper).

Hey now, don't be dissing the Duros.  Ellors Madak was the winner of the very first Fan's Choice Poll (2000).

McQuarrie Stormtrooper didn't win until poll #4 (2002).

Past Fan's Choice Winners:
1. Duro (Ellors Madak) - Spring 2000
2. Amanaman - Fall 2000
3. Ephant Mon - Winter 2001
4. McQuarrie Stormtrooper - Summer 2002
5. Captain Antilles & General Dodonna (tie) - Summer 2003
6. Quinlon Vos & Darth Revan - 2006
7. Bastilla Shan - Winter 2009
8. Mara Jade - Winter 2011


I did see that announcement before.  I guess my question is:

Who is making an appearance in Cap 3 - is it just "Spider-Man" or will it be this kid as Peter Parker/Unmasked Spider-Man?

I agree it makes sense, based on things previously said about getting Spidey into the MMU, that if Peter Parker shows up in Cap 3, it'll be this kid.  BUT, without them specifically saying so in the press release, I guess it'll leave the door open in case they only want a stunt guy in a Spidey suit because he doesn't have any lines in Cap 3 or whatever.

Maybe they chose not to say because they didn't want to tip Spidey's role in Cap 3.  Maybe they didn't say because they assumed it was known.  I was just curious how big a role Spidey would have in Cap 3, since the movie is already shaping up to be chock-full-o-heroes if the casting/script rumors are true.

Marvel's article doesn't mention Cap 3 either, just talks about the next Spidey movie -

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios Find Their 'Spider-Man' Star and Director

"Tom Holland will play Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the next Spider-Man film, in theaters in IMAX and 3D on July 28, 2017."

I see a lot of people on twitter saying they are voting for Ahsoka...  didn't they already announce she's coming to the 6" line in 2016???

If anything, it's on the back-burner thanks to the utter lack of any new 3.75" figure announcements since October 2014.

Kind of pointless turning in a list of collector demanded 3.75" figures if we don't even know what scope the 3.75" collector figure line will have going forward.  :-\

Ewan McGregor Wants to Jump Back Into 'Star Wars'

Proving once again that everyone loves money.  Or hates George Lucas.  One of those, I guess.  :-X

Also... that T-1000... I've already got one that's shot up, one that's frozen with a helmet, one that's all chromed out... then there's the regular one, and the regular one with the helmet... and now this.

6 T-1000's, already.  That's ridiculous.

Rob, if six T-1000s are ridiculous, then what are seven! :P

Today's SDCC 2015 figure reveal - ReAction: Terminator 2 - T1000 with Hook Arms

Same here - Carbonite Han and Jawas are shipping... but Mosep, Boushh, and Thorn are not.  Strange.

Saw Inside Out this weekend.  Fantastic.  Agree with Master Qui-Gon above - another masterpiece.  Can't really say anything bad about it.  Voice Talent was about the best match-up casting I've seen from them yet.

Even the Lava short before the flick was awesome. :)

Watched it tonight with the kids.  Great show.  Loved all the Ahsoka stuff.  I'll guess she's got suspicions but has to come to terms with it before she's ready to admit Vader = Skyguy. :P

Best part was when the 3.5 year old daughter gasped when Vader showed up at the shuttle port and lit his saber... followed by when one of my nine year olds yelled "WHAT ARE YOU DOING, RUN!" when Ezra/Kanan watched Vader get up from under the debris/explosion.  :D

Kubricks / Re: Medicom Toy Exhibiton 2015 and Carded Rocket Fett

So this wasn't available to the public but a limited give away, right?

Right.  They always have a preview party the night before the opening date and usually have a carded Star Wars Kubrick gift/freebie that is handed out to the guests.

Back in the day, these Parco Party exclusives could command up to $400-550 each back when they were original or repaint figures.  Now that they are just repacks, they have been in the $80-120 range.  Fett's popular, so it may be on the upper end of the range.

Gunjap has nice new pics of the upcoming 1/12 Sandtrooper and 1/12 Scout/Bike figure model kits.

Tamashii Star Wars SHF Display at Tokyo Toy Show this weekend.  Bandai unfortunately blurred the figures, but left the sign to announce...  SH Figuarts C-3PO and R2-D2!

Now we just need to comb through twitter for someone to post an unblurred picture... will be interesting to see how they compare to the Revoltech versions.

The shark is not exclusive.  The "being eaten Quint" and bloody deco shark are unique to the exclusive version. 

The regular version has a scuba tank accessory and non-bloody deco.
