Back to talking to myself...  :-[

Also still need to track down the Heavyarms/Sandrock conversion kit.  Waiting for a good deal on ebay for that since I'd need to pick up a second H-arms and Sandrock to convert so I can have both versions.   ::)

Done!  Around Labor Day, I found a really good deal on a second Gundam HeavyArms and Gundam Sandrock that was too good to pass up.  That meant I definitely had to track down the Season One conversion H-Arms/Sandrock kit.  Was patient and found a BIN auction below my target price so I pulled the trigger.

Kit arrived today, meaning I am 100% caught up, including all the Japan-exclusive releases for Gundam Wing.  Now I can go to work completing the Gundam Wing - Endless Waltz stuff....  and of course, be careful not to stray into any of the other Gundam series - Zeta, G-Fighter, etc. ;)

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

Anybody got a sense for how Walgreen's distribution network works and how quickly they restock? 

Earlier this Fall, the Walgreens toy buyer sent out some tweets that revealed all of their initial stock had been shipped to the stores, but there are another 40k coming to stores in November for re-stocking (see below).

This past weekend, the Walgreens toy buyer tweeted that solid cases of eight 6" ProtoFetts will hit over 5,000 stores starting in November.

At NYCC, it was announced by Disney that Funko had a license for Disney's Tomorrowland.  There was even an ultra limited exclusive sneak preview figure that went up for sale when Disney released the trailer.

Funko had a lot of product at the show, but not much for company reps who knew about new stuff.  I heard a lot of rumors at the show though - Classic Star Trek, X-Files, Rocky Horror, the Lost Boys, Terminator 2; as well as wave 2s for Aliens, Firefly, and BTTF.  We'll see if any of it pans out though.

1. Padme Amidala (Buns Hairdo)
2. Padme Amidala (Peacock Dress)
3. Padme Amidala (Senate)
4. Emperor Palpatine (Office Duel Red Robes)
5. Darth Vader (Medical Capsule)
6. Midwife/GH-7 Medical Droids
7. BD-3000
8. Commander Bly (w/removable helmet)
9. Commander Bacarra (w/removable helmet)
10. AT-TE Tank Gunner

Revoltech Vader is 17cm tall or about 6.7" tall.

Revoltech Stormtrooper is 16cm or about 6.3" tall.

For a limited time (10/15-10/21), Funko Pop Vinyl figures and Reaction Figures are Buy Three, Get One Free at Entertainment Earth. 

EE seems to be running 20-25% off sales on the ReAction stuff quite frequently.  Can't tell if it's a marketing thing or if they're just trying to unload stock that isn't moving very quickly...

I think the Revoltech version may look a little better than the Bandai one.

That is because the Bandai Stormie pictured there is a 1/12 Model Kit figure (which is why it's less than $20 and not $40-50).  It's a snap-together kit, not an "action figure" per se.

The Bandai SH Figuarts action figure Stormtrooper will look much nicer as that is Bandai's collector figure line.

I have the 4 different 6" versions of Vader on order: Hasbro, MAFEX, Revoltech and Bandai.

Which Bandai Vader - the Movie Realization Samurai or the 1/12 Model Kit Vader?  And don't forget about the Bandai SH Figuarts Vader, which will be going up for pre-order in the near future! ;)

Hey Hasbro! / Re: Han Solo

It's 2014 and still no new Han Solo figures in the collector quality, 3.75" basic figure line. :(

Do you realize that the last 3.75" basic figure Han Solo we got on a card was 2011's TVC Revenge of the Jedi Endor Han (and he was a kitbash, not even a fully new figure).   Just think about it.  That means I haven't added anything to my Wall of Single Carded Han Solo figures for THREE years!  THREE!  Not cool, man.  Not cool at all.   :'(

I'm not really a "you owe me" type of guy, but... you owe me, Hasbro.  2015 better be the year of AMAZING 3.75" Han Solo figures

You can be honest with me, Hasbro - you set me up didn't you? 

Not announcing all those new Han figures at SDCC and then showing them off at NYCC where I could ogle them in-person?  Well played.  ;)

I admit - 2015 is shaping up to be a good basic carded Han year with a single carded Black Series 3.75" ESB "Pre-Freeze" Han Solo and Carbonite Block set and a single carded Saga Legends 3.75" Bespin Han Solo.  And there's even a bonus Mission Series 3.75" Hoth Han Solo as well.

Nice work Hasbro.  Hopefully Episodes 7-8-9 will help you keep fresh Hans in the line-up for years to come.  :)

Your Pal,

Look for pre-orders to hit soon.  Keep an eye on BBTS (for US orders) or HLJ (for import orders).  I'll toss up the links when I see them. ;)

Star Wars Revoltech #002 Stormtrooper Pre-Orders -
- BBTS = $64.99

Haven't seen HLJ post him yet, but I'll add a link once it pops up...

Never got around to posting these, but I'll drop them in here since I'm doing the Revoltech too -

Miracle Action Figure EX (MAFEX) No. 010 Stormtrooper Pre-Orders:
- BBTS = $54.99 US
- Hobby Link Japan = 4,050 ($37.73 US)

That's cool and all but why did they just make a blue 6" Hoth Han too?  Seems like the new team might be  a little misguided :-\

So they can sell you a brown one later, of course.  $$$$$$
