Feedback / Re: Pete_Fett's feedback

Pete_Fett just helped me out with some new loose TVC figures that are impossible to find in stores.  Awesome seller and I really appreciate his help!

That makes a lot more sense then since there's not a spot for it at Target stores but the new Wal-Mart planogram has it.  Didn't they have it online at  Or am I imagining that?

There's some sellers on ebay that have that Luke cheap if you decide you want one but not the Fett - I've seen one for $3.99 recently, and I think shipping might even be free.

Sandtroopers reported that it has been found at a Target.

ps - I went to Target today and they did their restock and these figures were gone from the plannogram

They are on a back endcap now.

Not in my area.  Just the basic figures are on a back endcap.  3-pks/vehicles are nowhere to be seen.

Maybe I'm just too easy.

And maybe I'm just too hard on Hasbro on this. 

What bothers me is the "head" has what looks like a really, really good paint scheme that puts some depth into the sculpt, and almost looks like a matte finish... looks like top quality!

But the body and legs seem to be completely void of paint.  It looks like they just skipped that altogether... then the feet have a lot of brown paint... seems to be a little overkill to me... and it makes the foot the joint really looks too clean then.

I know it's just a toy, but I think they got a little zealous on the mud paint, and should have put less into that and a little more into weathering the legs/body.  I can't complain too much I guess, because I have a few of the Wal-Mart version and am pretty happy with those.

Col. Dietrich...  Seriously.  That's all I'm sayin'.  ::) 

******' Crystal Skull.

It's my least favorite of the films, but if not for that movie, we might not have gotten any figures made at all. 

I also don't think the paint job quality on the figures helped, or some of the figure selections - Belloq, for example, should have had his white suit from the get go, and his "ritual" outfit should have come with the Ark.  Toht should have been available early on, etc. 

It's too bad, really.

...I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of "extras" up for sale/trade from collectors later this year.

It sure is nice that Hasbro didn't double up on the Royal Guards/Republic Troops and can a couple of the TPM repacks...  ::)

I agree, the snowspeeder Luke sculpt is so much better.  It looks much more like a natural human body than the X-Wing Luke (especially hate those huge shoulders).

Nice pics, Anton - and nice score.

The height of the Luke sculpt doesn't bother me, it's the sculpt itself.  I always felt the arms look too big for the body.

PM sent!

I'd say in every way it's vastly superior Lando...

The paint aps are wildly superior to the MH one, and the sculpt is also a good notch above.  The articulation almost is a non-issue since the MH one is probably "good enough" for many, but this one of course is a lot more heavily articulated.

I'd say, honestly, the paint aps and sculpt are where it's head and shoulders above MH though.  One looks like a toy, and one looks like a little replica.

I felt the same way, until yesterday when I received my order from BBTS.  I actually think the MH one looks a lot better and more like the movie character.  The only thing I like more about the TVC one is that it can sit on a Kaadu.

I've seen a bit of that wave too... not much though.  It's a great wave, I really hope that it starts showing up more.

I've seen remnants of this wave near me over the past few days.  It's nice to know that it's hitting the stores, but it would be nice to see it in more significant numbers.

Guessing you're talking about the Galen Marek/Shae Vizsla wave?

Hmmm... I wonder if it's going to go on a promo endcap or something?
