The order time for the base was extended 5 days.  So now more time to mull one over.  Ugh.

I should have mine this week Jesse, I'll be sure to break it open and provide a full report on the awesomeness!  :)

I was surprised and excited to find the Shane with Baseball Cap TV redux figure today at my local comic shop. No other figures, just him, but I was able to pick from 4 so I got one with nice paint apps.

I have no idea what sort of traditional stores might carry these...Walgreen's maybe?

Glad to have this though, I basically decided last night that I am only going to focus on the TV figures going forward, so this seems like a nice unspoken validation of that choice. (Collector logic)

Happy hunting!

Is that Scrabble School Program tempting anyone yet?  :D

I got my tickets for the Thursday night show - officially excited!

I decided I'm going to try and hit the trifecta with this flick like I did with Pacific Rim: 2D, 3D, IMAX.

Apparently they posted something on Facebook to the effect that they were regretful about not making it out to SDCC this year but to look out for some kind of announcement about the Smaug set later this year.  ::)

There has been a lot of online venom spewed at TBD, and while I certainly understand it, I'm not ready to pile on just yet and declare the line totally dead. I guess I just hate the thought of what could have been...

The fact that they have Beorn, The Bard, and the rest of the Dwarves already sculpted makes me think these could still make it out some way, in some form one day.

Nothing up on their site yet, no placeholders or anything...

It is, I never watch it live because it airs at the same time as "Falling Skies"...all 3 episodes should be available now.

del Toro is like the Official Mark of Quality to me, i generally love anything he is associated with.

So jealous! That's amazing....I went out searching for these today but there are none in stock yet anywhere locally based on the dpci look-up.

Maybe screen accurate was the wrong phrase...

More technically accurate?

No, i think you were right the first time. Brian Flynn said this himself over at RS.

Dang, I need that Predator figure too.

The actor who was cast as the High Sparrow was JUST ON GoT last season in a totally different role though wasn't he? Doesn't that seem confusing?

Wasn't he the dude the Hound killed who proclaimed "Dying's thirsty work!"

Yeah, I pretty much knew it was going to be different, that's why I wanted the SDCC one so bad, more movie-faithful, IMHO.

I have been researching this, and I believe I have concluded that there are at least SIX (6) different blind bagged "mystery figures":

Kane - Spacesuit
Kane - Chestburster
Ripley - Spacesuit
Ripley - Plain
Alien - Plain
Alien - Clear

The Aliens were clearly shortpacked because there are almost none of them for sale on eBay right now, plenty of the other guys though. I believe I got the Ripley Spacesuit and Chestburster Kane in my preorders.

So not easy to be a completist with this line, but it's great stuff IMO.

According to JTA's Hasbro Q&A, ANH Leia is coming in this line...hopefully long after her previous version has sold through.

According to JTA's Q&A, the rumored Mission Series 2-pack with Ahsoka and Anakin has been cancelled.  :(

This had the potential to be pretty cool, little disappointed on this...
