I got an email from Super7 last night saying that their Alien Vinyl Carrying Cases were heading over on the proverbial slow boat from China and would not be here until June.  >:(

I understand the challenge of logistics with a small company like this but its pretty ****** of them not to have stated that up front last week when they went up for order. There's no way they could not have known that.  They could have easily labeled it as a Pre-Order, or at the very least as a gesture of good faith not charged me or refunded my money until the damn things show up.

No idea now if I'm going to get my 3-pack or if they will hold it and ship them together.

Cool stuff! I know 3PO is the Ep 7 version, but am curious if R2 is exactly the same as the previous con exclusive release. Don't see why it wouldn't be, his look never changes anyway.

Thanks, yeah I can pass at that price. I did pick up a few cheap Finns and Resistance Troopers.  :)

I woke up and ordered one this morning at about 7:45am EST with no problems, thankfully.

I saw JTA put up a front page post about it about 8 minutes later and I'm sure that was the nail in the coffin. I kinda wish they wouldn't do stuff like that.

I wish we could get some definitive answer on if these are completely dunzo or if they plan to keep releasing the odd character here and there like Proto Boba.

Just snagged Luke and the Wampa on a lightning deal on Amazon, and used some Discover cashback points, knocking the cost down to $15.

Oh man, is it still going? I've been refreshing their page all morning and never saw that one go up.

Guessing probably not, the only one I see now is $38. :(

YES!!  ;D

I knew it, I KNEW IT, I freaking knew it.

Total TV awesomeness overload.

Oh and extra credit for those two old dbags getting their just desserts, although Roose deserved to be stabbed about 50 more times in Robb's memory.

It took me til last night to catch up on this too. More of the same really, questionable decisions all around. Let's stand on the edge of a sandy cliff, let's walk into a confined space filled with walkers, let's waste time talking instead of furiously rifling through every suitcase, etc etc.

Will feel like a waste if I don't get to see at least two of these dopes get eaten before the season is over...

There are none here in VA either, kind of a screw.  >:(

Just got around to un boxing this tonight and setting it up with the companion piece on my display shelf. I really like it! It's a nice centerpiece to build around. It makes it very easy to pose Rey and Kylo in full on battle mode. Makes me wish they would do more stuff like this, would have been perfect for the Wampa set.

Agreed, and I think it is a result of them going back to doing their own thing without the support of Funko. So we wind up with $15 MOTU figures you can only buy online, and $45 vinyl carrying cases. I'm kinda glad now there is not much else on the horizon with these guys.

I was able to order the carrying case and Japanese packaged 3-pack without any trouble. $45 each though, ouch.  :-\

Dalai Lama is a great point. An aged, learned, spiritual wise man who happens to be Asian. He is no more a racist caricature than the Ancient One. It's not like they drew the guy with buck teeth and thick glasses. There is a long tradition of the learned wise man in eastern mysticism. I just don't think the character as was originally written was so awful that they had to totally reimagine him.

The Tibet thing is something I had not considered, but I feel like they could just be vague about it and say "the Himalayas" or something like that. That's not anything that has to be called out specifically and doesn't impact the story either way.

Definitely a lot more aspects to this issue than you would think at first glance. One way they could have side stepped the whole thing would have been to skip the origin story altogether and just hit the ground running. Shake up the usual formula.

Is the Case not available until 7pm?

Yep, I don't even see a listing for it on their web store yet. I will check back a few minutes before just in case.

Wait, the Power Loader's going to be available today?

Also, by any chance are you thinking about ordering carrying cases to the point where you might end up with an extra of the exclusive alien?

Hmm, now that you mention it, I guess that wasn't actually one of the items teased. Also MIA is the rumored Nostromo kitbash play-set.

I'm definitely getting the case but will be keeping the alien - sorry. 1 is enough for me.

Curious to see in hand pics from people lucky enough to hit up their brick and mortar store already...

It's Alien Day...LV-426.  ;D

Time to head over to Super 7's website and order up a bunch of new swag including that carrying case and power loader 3-pack.

Yay new toys!
