Rogue One / Re: Rogue One "FORCE FRIDAY" Official Thread...
« on: September 29, 2016, 01:41 PM »
Ben and I plan to hit the TRU in Cedar Rapids tonight. Looking forward to a much more involved affair than last year, when we went to Wally World. The people there were nice and fun, but there just wasn't anything out. We got some figures but a lot of people left disappointed. I'm looking forward to the Hover Tank Pilot and the Moroff/Shore Trooper set the most. I'll probably get most of the figures since there's only 7. If wave 2 is out I'll be a bit more selective. I love the ships but I'll be waiting on those a bit. 6 inch I'll wait and see. K2 for sure. I have K-Mart points yet so I may hold off on those.

You're going to burn in hell!  ;)

Nice score. Nothing has slipped out here in Iowa as of yet. I keep seeing these scores on Twitter and think the dam will break here any day (not the literal dam hopefully as we're currently in the middle of a flood in Waterloo) but oh well. Looking forward to Friday.

Yeah, unless they somehow move the goal post up to $15 or probably more for a SA figure, I think it will probably be the 5POA stuff too. Which I'd be ok with, for the most part.

Thanks Jeff! Very good article. I'm glad they're tweaking the Retro concept a little. A lot of the initial offerings were all properties I wanted and they just came out very blah. Some great. These look amazing. One line I'd love to see revisited is The Black Hole. I think that would make for a gangbusters series for Reaction.

I need them all.

I continue to be surprised at the immunity of my local K-Mart. It's got to be one of the last in Iowa. I appreciate them enduring, as they've been reliable for the exclusives at least. Sad for the others and the employees. K-Mart was the place back in the 80's for toys. Tons of memories from there.

My God. The Dark Crystal set. I don't have the previous set yet but I guess I'm looking for it now. I think my brother - who doesn't collect toys at all but is a massive GG fan - would probably buy these.  ;D

I'm sort of thinking the Jyn we get will be the Ground Crew outfit, if only because it will double as a generic crew member. I wouldn't mind it but would also appreciate just about any costume she wears as they're all pretty neat. Cassain - ditto. I think locks for this line are K2 and the Death Trooper. I would imagine we'll see a new SA Stormtrooper as well.

Looking forward to this one. The figure looks great. As for a companion piece, it's probably going to be some villain, so I'll say a Death Trooper, some trooper we haven't seen yet, or Vader, if he decides to go rock climbing.

Considering they seem to be waiting for spring to announce/show this hypothetical new 6 inch vehicle, it's probably from ANH. If so, most likely the X-Wing. Maybe a Imperial TIE, but I'd rather see something different.

These are still readily available here at DG in Iowa, at least. I've seen them on the top shelf in out of the way aisles - don't ask me why.

No hover tank?

Should not be surprised. Collecting Star Wars lately has been pretty tankless.

That's what they're saying in Dublin.

Mentioned this in the rumors thread but - no Hover Tank? Very odd. Hoping they mean not this year and we see it next year some time.

Thanks for the great info Jeff!

Kind of figured on Luke and Leia, but nice to see them at least speak to it. The lack of the Hover Tank is extremely odd. It features in nearly every other scale so far and would be a slam dunk to keep the Class II (or III? Whatever the FO Snow Speeder was) assortment going. Maybe its not a huge part of the movie so they're laying off, but still. Plus we need the driver! He's the coolest new trooper in the movie.

Well there's a couple things. The reshoots were part of the post schedule. This occurred on TFA last year as well as there were some reshoots and pickups in 2015. John Williams was scoring TFA from May of last year over a long period of several months. This was accommodating incomplete effects obviously which has always been the case. Recorded music is very often edited in the final mix to accompany whatever is required. It's very unlikely Desplat has recorded nothing to this point or was taken by surprise by the schedule. Maybe he was but something is off. In any case Giacchino is a great choice and I look forward to the movie.
