The Bullpen / Re: Marvel Universe
« on: February 16, 2016, 12:50 PM »
I can't always tell if I'm looking at a 6" figure or a 3.75" figure, but relied on "Legends" somewhere in the wording to identify the larger sizes.  Guess that's out the window now.  Do these companies do ANY research before making changes?   ???

I think it was at NYCC last October where they announced "Marvel Legends" would be the name for the MArvel collector line, for 3.75" and 6" (and now 12" too).  Kinda like "Black Series" = collector stuff for Star Wars.  Trying to brand it all together.

MOTU Figures are now up for pre-order at the Super7 store for $15 each or $60 for the set of 4.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4

I was shocked when I heard that Asty was even in the running for this line

If that information was derived more from the question than Hasbro's response, then you have to be very skeptical about Atsy's placement in the 3.75" Black Series.

I know it's been a while, but don't forget that Hasbro (or rather, someone in particular over there) has a huge foner (fan boner :)) for Rebel Pilots.

2013 = Biggs, 2014 = Dutch.  All those Evolutions and TRU Pilot packs.  The only thing Hasbro likes more than Clone Commanders is Rebel Pilots.  ;D

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII

Since it has a cast list confirming who is back, I guess some people might consider it a spoiler, but The Official Site has announced Ep8 is underway officially -


Fun little Episode VIII Production Announcement video they tossed in there.  :)

we've been hot garbage lately
2-4-2 in our last 8 is not going to get it done in the Central.   :-[
1-9-2 in past 12 games
don't know how many more terrible hockey games I can watch though.  :-\

I guess two more was the answer for Chuck Fletcher.  Mike Yeo, out on his ass.

I really don't know what to make of all this.  When players committed to playing his system, we were puck possession monsters.  When players were afraid to go into the corners to win puck battles and had ****** shooting %, we were terrible.  I placed about 10-20% of the blame on him (not being able to figure out a good PP combo, basically).  The rest is on the players and Fletcher (for the guys he signed).

Maybe Yeo will have luck at his next stop, but Vanek, Granlund, and Pominville killed him here. :( 

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4

But Atsy?  I didn't think the character distinguished himself that much to merit a Black Series figure.

Maybe it's not so much that he merited a figure, but more that they can use the 6" sculpt to make a 3.75" pretty easy?   :P

But yeah, I'm still holding out hope that TFA Han Solo fills out this wave.

More TFA figures are coming this year. They weren't announced today but will be out this year.

Yeah, because why would they want to announce something like that to fans feverishly waiting for that exact type of announcement at Toy Fair. :-\

Any word yet how much they will charge?  Price and availability will probably determine just how into this line I get...

Other Toy Lines / Bif Bang Pow's Pin Mates

Bif Bang Pow! Launches Peg Pals™ - A Brand-New Collectible Line of Wooden Figures.

Once again, a nostalgia themed line aimed at kids of the 60s/70s.   We had a ton of the old fisher price little people wooden figure sets when I was a youngster - Sesame Street, farm, castle, mall, airport, etc.  These could be really cool if they take off.

Press release says they are starting with KISS, but have plans for DC and Marvel, and more.  I probably won't be able to resist a Batman figure when they get around to one, especially if that $5 price holds up.

Other Toy Lines / Funko's 6" Pop Culture Playmobil Figures
« on: February 12, 2016, 01:09 PM »
Funko officially announces the news that was first leaked in January - New Figures from Funko and PLAYMOBIL!

I'll be honest that I'm a little bit bummed to see they are 200% (6-inch) sized figures and $15 each.  As a kid, I loved Playmobil stuff and still have a bunch of it.  My kids have a bunch of the figures and sets now.  Would have been fun to toss some pop culture figures into the mix, but with the 6-inch size, you can't really do that.  Oh well.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Transformers Live Action Movies

Not one, not two, but three more Transformers movies are being made.  Hasbro made the announcement during their investor presentation today.

The Bullpen / 12" Jumbo Marvel Legends Figures
« on: February 12, 2016, 10:16 AM »
There's 3.75" Marvel Legends.  And 6" Marvel Legends.  Up next - 12" Marvel Legends figures!

$50 each, but they include multiple heads, hands, and accessories.  Makes you wonder if there will be 12" Star Wars figures coming too...?

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends Role Play
« on: February 12, 2016, 10:11 AM »
Looks like Hasbro is taking the "Black Series Role Play for Grown-Ups" idea into Marvel Universe with the new Marvel Legends Role Play Items

Not sure I want to dress up like Cap or IM, but those replica items are pretty cool and way cheaper than the fancy prop replica company prices for sure.  Removable Face Plate on the IM Helmet is pretty cool too.

The Force Awakens / Re: TFA Takodana Battle Pack
« on: February 11, 2016, 03:46 PM »
Basically this is a $20 5POA fig with a cool accessory... For most of us anyway. 

I don't mind the BB-8 to be honest.  I only have the one from the 3-pack with the Jakku goons.  Nice to have another.  Too bad they couldn't have thrown FN-2199 (aka TR-8R) into the mix too since he was a fun part of Takodana battle.

The Force Awakens / TFA Takodana Encounter Battle Pack
« on: February 11, 2016, 01:05 PM »
$19.99 Takodana Battle Pack revealed @ EW

Set includes new 5POA Maz Kanata and repacks of 5POA Finn, Rey, and BB8.  Text in the article says Maz will not be available singly, just in this set.  Set also includes the Anakin Saber and Maz's trunk.

Maz looks great... but sticking her in a $20 box set with repacks is pretty lame.  Pic from EW:
