It really all started with the Indiana Jones line. I remember spending hours in the toy aisles searching for figures that weren't cross eyed, or had their hairlines painted in the right spots. I'm not sure about their other lines since I don't collect them, but Star Wars was generally fine up until 2011 or so outside of stuff like Cody's antennas not being painted silver. Marvel has always been hit or miss (can't knock them for having some misprinted lines on Spider-Man), but never too bad until the Avengers line.

Spotted at Target today, 3 Obi/Maul sets, 3 Han/Chewie sets and 2 3PO/R2 sets. I got one of the droid packs, but passed on the other two due to the TERRIBLE paint apps. Obi and Maul had the usual bad eyes that Yakface has been covering recently while Han and Chewie all had various problems. One Han had an arm that was completely unpainted!

Spotted Wave 3 remnants at Target today too. Just Mace, Mara and Neyo. Like DocP said above, this is the first shipment of TBS this Target has gotten since they first started stocking the line. Snagged Mara since I still want to order a Wave 3 case at some point.

I spotted Wave 1 of these at both Target and TRU the other day. Batman, Mr. Freeze, Azreal and Deadshot, all based on their appearances from the Arkham City video game. I ultimately passed on them for now, mainly due to a lack of accessories.

I like Eisenberg aka Not-Michael-Cera (he was great in Social Network and Zombieland) but yeah this seems odd. Former JediDefender Poster Famine texted me saying he is THRILLED by the casting of Jeremy Irons as Alfred.

Finally got my hands on my Complete Series set. it shipped two weeks ago but I had it sent to my parents' house and never got around to going over there until today. It'll probably be another week before I get to sit down and open the thing, but there is supposed to be lots of bonus goodies included.

I finally did some digging around and according to, Warner is sending out free replacement discs. I kept forgetting to call until today, and it took less than 3 minutes to get everything taken care of. They just ask for your name, address, and which set you bought (apparently there are different discs for Season 5 vs the Complete Series), and they said the new disc would be here in 1-2 weeks. They told me they were out of Disc 1 at the moment so while I'm getting Disc 2, hopefully they mail out the Disc 1s when they are able to produce more.

The number is 1-800-553-6937 if anyone needs it.

Found what looked like remnants of Wave 2 at a local grocery store this afternoon. Boba Fett, Rex, Mace Windu were the only ones I saw. I think the ROTS Obi-Wan is new too, right? If so, they had that one too. I might go back and snag the Fett for use with the Big Slave I.

Allow me to join in on the BrBa love... my friend has been watching since the beginning and is always talking it up, and I finally watched it last summer when I got Netflix. Great, great show.

I've been trying to watch Dexter on Netflix now but I've only made it a few episodes into Season 2 so far. I think knowing that the quality significantly drops after Season 4 hurts my opinion of it.

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

Easy purchase if this is the case. Some of the duplicates I won't exactly need but I could probably trade them away for some Imperial Navy Commanders or something. I'm personally thrilled to see Dack. He and the AT-AT commander were really rare here for some bizarre reason and I missed out, and they go for like $20 plus on the secondary market now.

Yeah, online is the way to go. My local stores refuse to stock pretty much anything Hasbro anymore, outside of the role playing stuff. I guess TRU has a giant selection if you like Biggs and Vader. Target gets about one case a month, and Wal-Marts don't even have Star Wars sections.

I'm not expecting anything. I have no interest in the 6 inch line or the Rebels line, and those are probably going to dominate, along with Angry Birds like Jesse said. We might see pics of the next wave after the Dagobah Luke/Yoda wave but nothing else.

I'm actually expecting Hasbro to not have anything Star Wars, at least what little they will have will be brushed aside in favor of Marvel stuff since the movies are out in April and May. Star Wars will get more focus at SDCC, but that should be all Rebels.

Well, the script is done, and I read that shooting begins in May. Shooting will probably wrap up in August/September, and that leaves around 15 months to do all of the special effects and reshoots and such.

Star Wars Universe / Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: January 12, 2014, 05:53 PM »
So according to this article, Disney is going to spend the next several weeks and months trimming the fat off the EU, so to speak, by reorganizing what is and is not canon.

I think this is a good idea for the most part. I'm only familiar with a few items from the EU but a lot of it was pretty dumb from what I've read on Wookieepedia (Clone Emperor, Ken Palpatine, Yuzzhan Vong, etc). On the other hand if they decide to axe stuff like Thrawn, Shadows of the Empire, Rogue Squadron and KOTOR I'll be a little bummed since those were pretty good EU projects and seem to be enjoyed by pretty much all Star Wars fans.

Any specific EU you want Disney to axe or keep around?

That's a great set, and a heck of a value. 2500 plus pieces for only $199 for a licensed set? By comparison, the UCS X-Wing is the same price and has 1500 pieces, and the Ewok Village has 2000 pieces for $250.

Good thing lots of the Star Wars and hero sets for the first part of the year are pretty lame, it'll free up some cash for this set.

Not sold on the minifigs but I'm sure I'll change my mind when I have them in hand.
