It occurred to me that Chewie may be there for scale as the point of this pic seems to be aimed at size. That being said I believe some of Chewie is new and he is coming again.

I've always loved these and wanted to get some. Great score!

All I can say is **** YEAH.

Love the little glimpses and look forward to more. The Falcon - I'm a happy guy. And TIE's!

Been a little out of contact due to traveling in Ireland but all amazing pieces! Found a shop in Dublin with some vintage palitoy I'll need to dig into before I head home.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Deluxe Line
« on: November 15, 2014, 09:08 AM »
I'm pro blue coat but not a fan of the paint apps here, or the bloody chin really on the Wampa. That being said, really looking forward to these. I had expected the deluxe line to wobble a bit around here with Jabba, but he's actually the one that moves. The Speeder Bike lingers at 2 per case but moves. $40 is a big pull. These will do pretty good I think. Before they get into the endless variations (Endor Luke/Leia on the bike, Luke on the Taun Taun) I hope they keep pushing this range to its limits. I'd like to see the Landspeeder, but also set pieces, like maybe Cantina stuff, Hoth stuff (E-Web blaster! Radar dish!). I wonder how much of a stretch something like the Skiff would be. Snowspeeder. Probably not that much.

I'd say from the pics this one seems more blue than brown.

Dave Filoni has said there's a long term plan for it, and it's been picked up for a second season, so Hasbro's apparent lack of interest is somewhat odd. On top of that, consider a comment from the Hasbro PR rep that Paul Harrison talked to at the show: so far as they know, all the Rebels figures have shipped, so it came as a surprise to them none have been found. What the hell?

Forgot about the Royal Guard, too. I thought the lack of new Rebels was odd, but we'll see what else comes during the show.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014

Yeah that was my first thought when I saw them because at least in the pics they seem huge compared to 3-PO. If they're tall Jawas, cool. I think they're great and look forward to buying lots of them. I do hope we see them in the 6 inch line though.

I was happy to see Luke, though the helmet is kind of odd. Maybe one of the existing ones will fit on there. Han I'm glad to see since I wasn't super happy with the TVC one. Lando... we just got the TVC one, which was very good, and I always liked the Saga one way back when better anyways.

These continue to amaze. I know there's been a lot of hate with them, but you can't argue with the sculpts and as Jayson said the Yoda is better than the one that just came out. This Yoda destroys, really, just about any modern one they've done to this point. I like the recent BS one, but this one captures Yoda better. Same is true of the Hoth Luke. The Hoth Han is perfect, very excited by him. Finally they get to Leia and she looks great. Articulation is less and less a factor for me, but I appreciate it where it's necessary. One thing I'd like to see in these figures is the ability for them to hold a saber or gun with two hands. That being said, enjoying all these quite a bit.

Yeah give Iris another spin. And Volcano. The whole album really takes off about half way in. The first couple songs don't really reflect the rest of it in my opinion.

It's really the worst collection of songs they've ever released? Not trying to start anything but as a longtime fan myself, I find that hard to believe. Everyone has their own tastes, but there's a couple songs on here, Iris for one, that are as good as it gets.

What Jesse said.

Perspective is healthy in all things, and certainly in a hobby as inconsequential, in the end, as this one. Enjoy it or don't. If you don't, save yourself some needless frustration and find a better hobby.

RIP Joan Rivers. A legend and a pioneer.
