The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 1
« on: August 8, 2013, 12:11 AM »
Something looks... off about that R2. Like he's way too small for the scale. Can't quite put my finger on it.

Like most people I think I'm going to snag Padme and Luke and then order a Wave 2 case online. Although watch those two get carried over to Wave 3.

Yeah I want to go but no way am I paying for tickets this far in advance. Maybe a year from now. Seems excessive to put the on sale this early.

Just hit up the Austin grand opening of Five Below and disappointing is an understatement. No Star Wars whatsoever outside of some puzzles, cards and shirts. Only action figures they had were two pegs of Thor and Iron Man 2 wave one figures from way back when.

Although apparently another store opened across town at the same time. I'll be TICKED if I find out they had cheap vintage figures.

Other Toy Lines / Re: 2013: What Are You Collecting?
« on: August 1, 2013, 11:07 AM »
Star Wars - Is there anything TO collect yet? Looks like I'll be picking up the mini rig Yoda fighter, and maybe the Endor AT-AT, though I'd almost rather track down the one from 2010. Still have some holes in my TVC line I'll probably fill, mainly the Imperial Navy Commander, Dack, AT-AT Commander, Snowspeeder and Cloud Car.

I have purchased exactly four Star Wars figures: Rebel Fleet Trooper, Fordo, and the new Legends Super Battle Droid and R4-P17. Never did track down the TVC figures and vehicles I'm missing from 2010.

Marvel - Still picking and choosing. I mainly stick to anything Spider-Man and some X-Men, with other various characters along the way. Will probably skip most of the Iron Man 3 line... most movie lines I only snag one or two figures anyway, and those are generally comic versions, so meh

I've seen one new Universe wave and only bought Jubilee. Need to go the online case route with Universe. Skipped everything from the terrible Iron Man 3 line.

LEGO - hoo boy... I'll pick up anything Star Wars OT, maybe anything if it's cheap (ie Planet sets, troop building sets, etc). Marvel and DC I pick and choose mostly for the minifigures. :-[ And of course I love the blindbag minifigures. Might pick up small, cheap sets here and there

Welp... I've spent almost $1000 on LEGO this year thanks to their various sales and deals that trick you into spending more money. :-X But I regret NOTHING.

I'm scared I would get sucked into a LOTR line, if Bridge Direct does as well on it as they did the Hobbit line, which I have resisted so far...

These disappeared from TRU, the only store that carried them, so I have successfully resisted via out of sight, out of mind.

LEGO / Back to the Future

The Back to the Future DeLorean is available for purchase!

Limit of two per customer. Got my order in, can't wait for it to arrive! I plan on customizing that hood though.

I saw the Puck/Hercules/Etc wave back in May, once at Target and another at a local grocery store. Haven't seen them since.

Mainly because all MU mysteriously vanished from the stores here.

Yeah I love buying random goons so the Skiff Guard is the highlight for me. I'll snag Mace too to go along with the other CW guys. Couldn't care less about Neyo or Plagueis though. The old Neyo is good enough for me, and Plagueis just seems better to me left as a myth about Palpatine's backstory.

She was hot in Hocus Pocus too, and kept opening her gigantic mouth too. Make your own jokes there.

Yeah, I wanted this set but not if the block will be available soon elsewhere. Plus it's my excuse to not dive in to the line. Hooray!

Count me in for one of each! Great sets.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic Con 2013!
« on: July 24, 2013, 05:57 AM »
Funny, I was at Wal-Mart the weekend after the 4th feeling the LEGO minifig packages when two kids and their dad ran up to the Star Wars figs. Both kids expressed disgust when they saw the same old Theed Soldiers, Battle Droids, Qui-Gons and Obi-Wans on the pegs, with one kid even yelling "This is ALL they have? AGAIN?!?"

I almost feel like the kids always end up the losers in Hasbro's plans even though they supposedly cater to kids. Can you imagine not being able to drive around town hunting for stuff like we do? And not having the knowledge that there will be no product shipping to stores for an entire year?

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6 Inch Figures?

I'm still on the fence too... I might pick up a few OT characters, like the main gang, Vader and Fett, and that's it. I have a feeling before long retailers will drop the price to $15 a pop. I can't imagine these staying at $20 when you have $15 Marvel Legends and $15 Mattel/DC's Failure-Of-The-Month Line right next to these.

I think we'll definitely see some Star Wars: Rebels stuff in addition to the Ep. VII glut. Imagine that, toy aisles filled with merchandise for characters/vehicles never done before.  :P

All with 5 POA!

Jocasta's Reading Room / Star Wars: Dark Times Comic
« on: July 21, 2013, 11:24 AM »
This is a new series that debuted last week, and I flipped through it and saw that it looks to take place between ROTS and ANH, as Vader is hunting down Jedi with the 501st Clones, there's one Imperial Class Star Destroyer among the Venator Class Star Destroyers, etc. Seems the story is about a band of rebels trying to recruit a Jedi to help them set up a trap to kill Vader. Pretty cool intro issue.
