The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 2016 SDCC Deluxe ANH Ben Kenobi
« on: August 9, 2016, 11:32 AM »
Had a Ben in my cart, processing checkout at 10:20AM CST... got an error message and of course it had sold out while trying to process the order. ::)

HQ images of Rogue One sets (SPOILERS)

The AT-ST is the only must-buy for me. I'll probably pick up a lot more after the movie comes out though.

Just got back from Suicide Squad. Maybe it's because I was expecting a BvS level bomb but I didn't actually hate it. Although I'd be okay with never seeing it again. I was mostly... bored with it? It was basically 90 minutes of walking around, with an additional 30 minutes of bad fighting and some random Joker scenes.

The pacing was all over the place. Seriously, they should have just given us a booklet with all of the team members and their traits and saved 10 minutes of screen time. The music was ridiculous too, using every cliche rock song from the past 40 years. It's like someone from DC watched Guardians of the Galaxy and completely missed the point. Then there were too many characters, main plot felt like an Avengers ripoff, etc.

I would have had them just be told to steal some weapons or something from Wayne Enterprises since Waller was a bad guy anyway. Would have made the post credits scene make more sense as to why Batman wanted to keep tabs on them. Simpler plot, and gives the characters more time to be developed rather than just having us be expected to know who these people are already (or think we can read flash cards in 5 seconds)

I spotted the X-Men wave at a local Walgreens today (everything but Deadpool and Wolverine)

Yeah my Targets had everything on clearance, but virtually nothing with stickers on them. They rang up for sale though. Didn't check the 3.75 inch figures.

I saw that set as well. The War Machine is cool but the Iron Man was lame. Day-Glo Orange?

Here's an interesting article from Forbes where Hasbro says TFA Luke is coming, and they also admit that the Force Friday mishaps last year were their fault.

Found, and bought, the Civil War 3 pack featuring Spider-Man and battle damaged Iron Man and Captain America (with masked and unmasked heads). The paint apps are fantastic! It was pricey at $60 but I recently found an old gift card from Christmas that had about $20 on it, so I got it for a steal.

About time for an update, no?

Figuarts ANH Luke arrived here yesterday... comparing it to the Black Series Luke is almost unfair.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #2 - Han Solo!

Apparently the Han spinoffs are now set to be a trilogy

Anyone see Beyond? I'm on the fence and my roommate says it's alright but isn't worth seeing.

Yeah I haven't really seen anyone bashing the price, just the perceived value. There are pros and cons in the set, it all comes down to how you look at it.

I'd guess that most of the disappointment stems from not the description, but for at least a few hours there was hope for the 3.75 inch SA line. Like maybe they were still going to throw collectors a bone. This thread got 6 pages of replies in 2 days! When is the last time that happened? When is the last time there was this much excitement around the 3.75 inch line?
