The Force Awakens / Re: TFA 3.75" Jungle/Space/Snow/Desert Line

I think you missed my point, Nick.

No, I got your point. Hook em at "cheaper" figs w/ no articulation and then when you raise the price because the figs are nicer you've still got them hooked.

You just got the brunt of my annoyance with every (of course that's exaggeration) post about Hasbro and the new line of figures having to be negative. Jeff points out a nice upgrade to the Ackbar and the next comment is about Hasbro suckering people in. Again Siddy it isn't really about your post as much as it is I feel from what I read I'm the only one who likes and still enjoys this new stuff (again an exaggeration).

No kidding. When is Hasbro going to stop caring about making money and give us an 87 point of articulation figure for $1.99. I mean really Hasbro.

If you have a "small" Target by you that carried the Millennium Falcon take a look for them. Target near me marked them down to $41 and change today.

Judith might be a much more effective tool to paint Negan as a monster than just about anything else.

I might have agreed with that except would everyone's apathy toward Judith make us not feel as strongly toward Negan being a monster if he killed her? I feel it wouldn't work.

Where did you find the Star Destroyer/ Mon Cal Frigate?

I only have a couple of these, but that sounds like a must have.

Anyone else collecting the Hot Wheels ships?  I bought my son the remaining ships he was missing for Christmas, and I just picked up the 2-pack with the Star Destroyer and Mon Cal frigate.  The only one that eludes me so far is the Rebels TIE which is in a 2-pack with the Ghost.  I even have the two versions of the snowspeeder (Luke's is packed in with a "playset").

Picked up "The Force Awakens" today. Super excited for the extra details the books always have.

Mostly talking to myself here, but I saw the First Order Snowtrooper today and I really liked it. I wish that these things weren't so big because I like how they look being so big. (I say that realizing how illogical it is).

Vintage Kenner / Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions

As far as I can tell the auction ended early without a bid. Curious if it's being sold outside eBay.

Saw the Slave 1 at Target today.

Awesome surprise today when my Christmas present from a friend was an Elite Boba Fett he found while in Rome. Apparently they had a whole bunch of it. Silly Europeans.

I was mostly just messing with you Scockery. Obviously not everyone was going to enjoy it as much as it seems most did. Which is why relatively speaking I do think harsh is a fair word. As Phruby said and just as ANH did way back when, I think TFA sets us up very nicely for some great reveals in the next two films.

A character in a sci fi/fantasy movie wearing something that looks cool, but doesn't necessarily seem like it serves a specific purpose? How ridiculous.

And instead of a heroine, I'd have gone the no hero at all route. Again, really a heroine? Shouldn't she have been cooking? There wasn't a single male hero either.

And there is no place for comic relief in a movie about galactic war.

But seriously I get that anyone that's watched A New Hope even once saw the parallels but I think you may have been a tad harsh

I LOVED Hux's speech.  Was I one of the only ones seeing that parallel to the Nazi's in Munich?  The blame, the hate, the vitriolic speech, the insanity brewing...  Hux, as bad as Kylo may be, is worse I think.  The FO are fanatics (having now read that somewhere) hardliners.  It's like WW2 ending, but no repercussions for the Nazi's and its devoted membership. 

I loved the Nazi feel of the FO at Hux's speech. One of my favorite subjects in fiction and non-fiction is when people fight back against the Nazis (whether it's the military or even better individuals) and so this was perfect.

I've been reading a lot of stuff I agree with. Did however want to whole heartedly disagree with Justin's thoughts on Driver. I thought he very much fit the part of "fighting off the light side" when he was helmetless. I didn't take it as whiny but as torn.

I thought casting across the board was brilliant
