Looking through the new stuff that went up this AM at BBTS...

Look at the ghillie suit on Argus.  On a 3.75" figure?  Wow.  Just, wow.

How am I not buying this line yet?  :-[

EE's Daily Deal today = 20% off select 3.75" GI Joe Action Figures and some other stuff - Kreo, role play.

Since Yavin Ceremony Leia has been pulled from the wave, you've got:

Pretty much ALL-NEW:
2015 #xx Captain Rex
2015 #xx Clone Commander Doom
2015 #xx Clone Colmmander Wolffe

Pretty much just a NEW HEAD on an old body:
2015 #xx Darth Vader (Yoda's Test)
2015 #xx Chewbacca (Yavin)
2015 #xx Jon 'Dutch' Vander

There was some debate on Vader whether he was an ALL-NEW sculpt, or just a new head on the newest Vader body - I don't recall what Hasbro said on that one...

2015 #02 Luke Skywalker (Hoth)
2015 #xx Imperial Navy Commander
2015 #xx Stormtrooper

Entertainment Earth extended their "Buy 3, Get 4th Free" Funko Sale an extra week and added in a bunch of ReAction/Legacy figures for those interested...

It appears an extra Stormtrooper may be in the case now.  There are doubles of Rex, Stormtrooper, and Wolfe.  I can't recall the original case breakdown to confirm if one of those is a new addition or not.

Yes, a second Stormtrooper was added to replace Leia apparently.  The case always had doubles of Rex and Wollfe.

Has the Stormtrooper been shown at one of the shows, or is it presumed to be a Vintage repack like the Navy Commander?

The pics everyone is using are the one that got packed in the Black Series, the TLC Dewback Sandtrooper minus the Sandtrooper gear one.

They day you've all been waiting for is here - they're up for pre-order!

$125 for the case; $20-30 each @ BBTS

$120 for the case with FREE shipping @ EE

Hurry now and pre-order before they sell out!  :P

Call me a canonist or a purist or close minded or whatever it was a dumb idea to begin with.

Cannonist!  >:(

I like the idea of Vader being the one to take out Ahsoka...  but there's probably too much money in Ahsoka staying alive for her to be taken out like that. 

If we're guessing her fate, I'll guess she was on Alderaan with Bail when it exploded...  that's the real reason that Obi-Wan was able to feel it's destruction from so far away. :P

Well, that didn't take long - don't know if they are basic figures or Mission Series, but Ahsoka/Vader figures are coming this Fall!   :D

Not bad, but you guys are really just one goalie injury away from relying on .906 goaltending against The Blackhawks, Blues, or Preds. :P

With three goalies already on our roster, we're kinda boned that way too.  Something happens to Dubnyk and we're in the same boat.

Should be an interesting stretch run here.  If the Blackhawks can't get their **** together, there's a real chance you guys could catch them and end up with the Blues instead of the Preds.

And, I'm still pretty convinced that Fulcrum is Ahsoka...  or at least I'm hoping that's the way they go.

Sweet.  8)

Looking back at Season 1, I'm glad it worked out this way.  If "Fulcrum" was revealed to be part of this show early on, she would have probably swayed the attention from the new characters.  Now, for season 2, she can pop into the story when needed as the contact to the bigger Rebel Alliance and we'll still care about the new guys too.

Too bad we'll never get a Rebels Ahsoka figure #hasbrohatesfemalefigures :P

So, Leopold and Stewart for us.  Not a bad haul I guess for not giving up much.

Leopold is a nice 6/7 defenseman that will allow us to send one of Folin/Dumba back to Iowa for bigger minutes and more seasoning...  a 3rd pair Leopold/Prosser isn't great, but at least we have a bit of injury protection since our D-corp has been hurt (or mump'ed) quite a bit this year.

Stewart... not sure.  Could be great if he's going to play hard and get gritty, and dig in... but he hasn't really done that since he left Colorado.  :-\  Maybe he'll just hang out in the press box for a few games until we figure out how to best use him...

Since the 2015 Black Series line is set, I thought I'd take one last "Pre-TFA" look at the unmade fan poll figures...

- 2006 Toy Fare Fan Choice Poll = 23 out of 25 made into figures; 92%

- 2009 Toy Fare Fan Choice Poll = 12 out of 30 made into figures; 40%

- 2011 Hasbro Fan Choice Poll = 7 out of 20 made into figures; 35%

Who’s left?  Glad you asked.  I’ve compiled the list of left-overs into one easy to reference/discuss list.  The # in parens is the polls they appeared.

Anakin Solo (2006)
Cane Adiss (2009)
Captain/Admiral Pellaeon (2009, 2011)
Captain/Admiral Piett (2011)
Cliegg Lars (2009, 2011)
Corde (2009)
Darth Caedus (2009)
Dash Rendar (2009)
Vintage-deco Death Squad Commander (2011)
Dorme (2009)
RotJ Emperor Palpatine w/throne) (2011)
Guri (2009, 2011)
Jaxxon (2009, 2011)
Joruus C’Baoth (2009, 2011)
Kittster and Wald (2009)
Mosep Bineed (2011)
RotS Nute Gunray (2011)
RotS Funeral Padme Amidala (2006)
Queen Apailana (2009)
Queen Jamilla (2009)
Sergeant Doallyn (2009, 2011)
Sim Aloo (2009, 2011)
Taym Dren-Garen (2009)
Tey How (2009)
Toryn Farr (2009, 2011)
Tzivvzt (2009, 2011)
Yak Face (2011)

Depending on how you feel about Doallyn vs the Brock Starsher we got, I guess you could give Hasbro a 0.5 credit on that one...

Still lots of figures left to go...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 8

I wish they hit more obscure or EU characters in this line.

I think everyone does...

One more sign that we really need Episode 7 to dump some "new, never-before made" characters into the mix...  although it probably won't help the folks tired of resculpts as Hasbro/Disney movie lines tend to be filled with countless main character versions in the first few waves.  :-\
