The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2014
« on: February 16, 2014, 05:01 PM »
Great coverage Jeff!

I'm pretty happy with the showings in general. The 6 inch is stellar, Rebels is very promising, and I like what we're seeing in the 4 inch line. I'm curious about the dais set and whether that will be come exclusive heart breaker down the line. All in all it looks I will be a lot more modern SW this year than I did last, which is unexpected. I really thought this year would trickle away, but it seems like Hasbro is really committed to course correcting and offering something for everyone. Love the new TIE Pilot cardback also.

Didn't the original FX X-Wing have a dedicated Luke inside? Wonder why they didn't at least try something like that here. This is a little curious as to why there's no figure compatiability... I'd be interested to hear Hasbro's thoughts on the intent behind it.

Very excited to see the vehicles. The TIE Advanced is very cool. I also would expect a Rebels TIE since if I'm not mistaken the designers based the concept art off the actual Kenner squat wing TIE.

Everything looks pretty good so far, and looking forward to the show. I like the designs of the characters, especially Zeb and Agent Kallus.

Kind of a bummer to read some of the commentary about the fate of CW characters and some PT, like R5-X2. To be expected I guess. I wish they had gotten to R5 in the Amazon set. Anyways, back on topic, Zeb looks like a lot of fun and I love the trooper.

I also really like the Sidious set. I wasn't overly thrilled with the TVC version and modified him with the Bust Up.

The Snowtrooper looks amazing and I plan to buy a few of him. Maul even looks pretty good.

Way more fisher price adventure people than Kenner. A little bit of a bummer.

Found quite a bit of SL wave 2 at target and TRU in the last two days. I pretty much like them all though I do think this boba fett is a miss. The one in the three pack was better IMHO. Didn't figure id like Rex and Cody but found them both pretty neat.

Yeah I think the NBXMAS figs came off well but not sure on the others yet... will wait to see better pics. Kudos for the aggressiveness of the line though.

Hall of Justice / Re: 2014 DC Multiverse 4" Figure Line

Yeah these are out in full force here in Iowa and not moving. Naturally wave 2, where the movie figures come into it, will be HTF as a result.  Then again it's early, so we'll see. Not a good sign so far though.

I can kind of see Eisenberg, in the mold of the character he played in Social Network. Luthor as young, petulant genius, as opposed to what we've traditionally seen. It could work. It depends entirely on the story. Luthor as a corporate threat to Bruce Wayne could be the way these two cross paths. Jeremy Irons has always been a tremendous actor, and him as Alfred offers some new avenues. Could work. would not have been the route I would have gone, but then none of these choices so far have been, so par for the course. We'll see.

I always like Frankenstein things and he's definitely a hodge podge. Looking forward to the show.

Found two cases of the new wave at Wally last night. Paint apps are definitely hit and miss so it was nice to have lots to choose from. I like these sets a lot, especially 3-PO/R2.
