Saga Legends / Re: 2014 Saga Legends Basic Figures

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.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: U2

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.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: TRU Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Battle Pack

This is pretty good incentive to wait to buy those two figures. Not 100% I'm going to get a lot of the rebels dudes but I kind of like the obi wan for some reason.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 5

Just ordered this wave off of HTS. Shipping around 9/22.

I found the Sidious set also at Target. On my example the paint isn't that bad at all and I found myself really liking this figure for what it is. It's more successful from a sculpt point of view than the vintage figure, which I ended up augmenting anyway with the hood and head from the bust up figure from years back.

I think (I hope) my area here in Iowa is particular. Peg warming here:

Target: Anakin, Greedo, 1 Stormtrooper for about five days now.

Wal-Mart: only one case of Wave 3, but has not moved in over a week, including the Stormtrooper.

TRU: Everything is peg warming there, Wave 1-3 except for Boba and the Stormtrooper. They've had a Biker Scout for over a week.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Got me there.

Not to derail the Ep7 thread further, but...

The infiltration of the shield generator was unnecessary when your ultimate aim is to launch an attack with the Rebel fleet, which can destroy the generator from orbit (Han destroys the entire forest anyways

If the Rebel base at Hoth had an energy shield that was strong enough to deflect bombardment from a Star Destroyer (according to Veers in the film), I'm willing to buy that the Empire's main Death Star Shield Generator had an energy shield that was able to withstand bombardment from a Mon Cal cruiser. ;)

You'd think but just looking around here I wonder if retail is where people are buying this stuff. Cases of 6 inch BS Stormtroopers, Fetts, Biker Scouts and Jabbas have been lingering since the reset.
