Other Toy Lines / Re: The Walking Dead
« on: Today at 08:20 AM »
Apparently there are 3 figures being found at Walgreen's right now as part of a "flashback" wave containing Daryl, Michonne and the RV zombie. I have seen varying reports whether these are just recards of the previously released versions or actual variants. I would love to have a chance to compare up close, but they haven't made their way here yet. My buddy in FL picked up all 3 a couple of weeks ago though.

Looks like Walgreen's has WD figures for $9.99 a pop right now on sale. I picked up another Zombie Merle and Shane. Wish I could find some of those "flashback" figs at that price but they don't seem to have hit here yet.

Good, their "kid" shows were horrible...those damn ponies and their severe emotional problems!

I liked it. Not a lot for Maggie or Chris to do, but it was pretty funny. Esp the Bob's Burger's slam.

Not sure about the historical precedent but those new Clone Wars episodes have already been prelisted for sale as a set overseas, so it is all but certain they will be released over here as well. I would guess sometime in the near future, this Fall.

I guess I need to check out that Ventress novel now too, although I did not care much for the Darth Maul Son of Dathomir treatment.

So yeah, this is apparently happening again. I saw a few new figures at my local 5 Below yesterday - Barriss, Vader, Hoth Luke, etc. Was hoping to see Nom Anor but no dice.

Still waiting on Shae Vizsla and Starkiller to show up here...

Has anyone seen the Predator figs at retail yet? I know they are ready because eBay sellers have them up...

I picked up all 3 last night too. The boxes are staring at me right now begging to be opened!

I saw the 31" Inquisitor for the first time yesterday too but couldn't pull the trigger. I know it's only a matter of time though...

LOL, it only took a week. Picked up this guy last night along with the 3 new Rebels ships and took advantage of their BOGO 40% off sale. Nice timing on that!

Caved and picked up my second Biker Scout Deluxe set from a Target that had apparently restocked these recently. (!) I wasn't in a hurry to nab #2 but he had a perfect visor and crisp paint job so I figured it was too hard to pass up.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - 5 POA Animated Style Figs
« on: September 24, 2014, 11:17 AM »
Yeah, I'm all in for sure...the Clone Wars line was the pinnacle of my SW collecting enthusiasm, so the Rebels stuff will help to fill that void. I'd prefer not to have 5POA figures but at the end of the day they're sitting on a shelf anyway so not the end of the world to me.

I'm not really a fan of the cartoony Stormtroopers but the other characters all look great. And the ships look fantastic!

Will be curious to see how long this line (and show for that matter) last.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)
« on: September 22, 2014, 06:10 PM »
I'm thrilled Walgreen's got in the game because otherwise it would be months from now that we'd be seeing these figures. (Our area has never even gotten a single Clone Trooper or Anakin on the pegs.) It was a brilliant move on their part too because they've essentially got five exclusives figures going for them now until other stores catch up. Which will probably be awhile judging by how things are going.

It is about impossible now to find a Proto Fett around here, plenty of Vaders and even some Sandtroopers. I've only seen Chewie once.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

I was lucky enough to score the last Jedi Turbo Speeder from the ghetto Ollie's here, glad I made it out alive. I agree this one seems to be the hardest to find. I pretty much have everything I want now (after having bought six of these things over the past week) unless someone discovers a Droid Tri-Fighter or Ahsoka's Starfighter in some odd assortment.

I don't see anything to get bent out of shape about with these things showing up, just seems like a nice surprise to me. I still hope to one day see a Shae Vizsla or Starkiller pop up again on a toy shelf.
