The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Is 2014 the "Last Hurrah"?
« on: January 8, 2014, 11:45 PM »
Toy fair will tell but I think there will be very little room for a lot of focus outside the new movies, especially with one every year. There will always be some slots for the past, but the next decade will be the new films. If there's something were waiting for we should ask ourselves what it is. This wave with toyrn Farr seems like a wish list clearer for me. Maybe that's 2014.

I'll wait and see on the cartoon, but I'm fine with the 5 POA/animated look. It's a cartoon and the toys should reflect the media. I'm with Jesse in that my biggest wait and see is the vehicles, where all the action in this line is likely to be. If they end up along the lines of what we saw this year, I don't think anyone will go for them, kids or collectors.

Oddly haven't given this much thought.

SW - always, but I think this year actually more than 2013 will be a lot of wait and see. I find myself enjoying the 6 inch and Saga Legends as much as anything else, so I look forward to what shows up there.

Misc. - no idea. The movie Batman and Superman figures - Keaton and Reeves. Beyond that, doubt it will be much at all.

I've never understood AFA. I totally get using it as a defense against scams, but as has been pointed out, even this is not fail safe and all AFA really does is inflate the price. It also, for me at least, shines a giant light on the fact these are toys, and meant to be played with, or at the very least, degrade. Certainly they have a lot of value to us, sentimentally and financially, but it's turned something very special into something very base. It's not about the toy, it's meaning or value to you personally; it's about the grade. The $$$. That I don't like at all. If this event ends up steering people away from all that, great.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Best of 2013?

Not hard to choose:

Black series: boba fett, Han and the sandtrooper. Resistant to the new scale? These will take you off the fence. Greedo would be another one, unexpectedly.

3 3/4 inch: Vizam, hands down. Merumeru, luminara, and Pablo Jill all stand out in a small crowd.

Mission series: the Vader set is the most worthwhile with two new figures. I tend to think jango is still the best figure in this first wave though.

Saga legends: not widely available yet but the storm trooper is the best figure in this category and this year overall by far.

Exclusives: the kmart sets stand apart from a dull group this year.

I had a 25% off one item coupon, so with my normal 10% discount, he worked out to $17. I agree, $25 is too steep for these in the normal course of things. Boba I probably would have paid full price for in any case, given how hard he's been to find.

Check your Barnes and Nobles - found wave 2 there today including Boba! 

Amazon continues to have amazing deals - most of the Black Series figures can be had on the cheap. Wave 2 Luminara is $3 for example. Pablo Jill is $6. Looks like one Vizam in stock right now for those interested - he's amazing!

I'm ordering a case online, pretty much no matter what. Hopefully they show at HTS like Waves 2/3 have. Great job on Hasbro's part to make these available.

Since I got $15 back from Amazon on the Droid Factory set, I took some coupons to TRU and got the set with Sarissa Jeng for $20. Really the only one of the two I wanted, and definitely worth it at that price.
