Nice, Doallyn somehow seems a little less exciting than expected, but a definite buy nonetheless. Finally a homeboy to chill with Rumsleg!

Yes, they frown upon outside deals for obvious reasons ($) but I'm not sure how aggressive they are in pursuing violations, scanning emails and so forth. Nothing would surprise me though.

I'm pretty much the same as Greg, typically I am not interested in doing side-deals as I put I lot of time and thought into my pricing up front and don't have a lot of wiggle room with my margins. Most of the offers I seem to get are pretty far below whatever savings I would recoup in fees too. But I have done it on occasion  and am certainly not averse to people asking.

12" Figures / Re: Hasbro Kids 12" Figure Line

So wait, there are FIVE upcoming Rebels 12" figures? Looks like it anyway. They must really be banking on this scale for some reason.

As much as I had planned to scoff, those actually look way better than any of the previous 12" figures IMO. I will probably end up buying all of these. And then complaining about no Zeb.

Don't judge me!  ;D

Missed another good opportunity to get some Clone Wars inspired characters out there, rats.

That Zeb/Stormtrooper pack looks insanely awesome though, articulation be damned. I'm doubling down on those no question.

Great pics, Jeff!

I saw the new NECA Big Chap figure at TRU yesterday, the one with the frosty white dome. Looked pretty nice.

I think the Horror stuff looks pretty great, think they will do well with those. The Firefly figures aren't atrocious, but man, those BTTF figs are not good at all.

I'm kind of on the fence with the Pulp Fiction stuff, love the cardbacks and the figure selection, but kind of hit or miss with the execution. Gimp is a must though.

Strikes me as odd to have 1-2 figure waves too, guess they are just testing the waters. Hope they have more Escape from NY stuff in the pipeline.

Was wondering when these would hit retail...I can't wait to start hunting down the sure to be elusive storm trooper. Getting closer...

I have unlimited streaming for only $7.99/mo - best babysitter EVAR!

Here is another shot of the HD selection, I'm not sure McMetal where you saw that HD wasn't supported.

Huh, all i see is the red X but I will look again when I get home. We had a free trial a few months ago and there was no HD content available for streaming through our Wii.

I like it, but mostly due to the fact that it is clearly more animated style as I had hoped for. I didn't catch all the glaring errors like Pete did, but he makes some good points. Skimping on articulation is one thing but some of that stuff is just plain lazy.

Figures that Lego is already leaving them in the dust by having a more interesting selection of characters in their first 2 sets. Where's my Twilek chick or that weird purple dude?

Picked up a loose Darth Vader's Star Destroyer Playset. It is missing the hatch door, the gun, and most important to me the top part of Vader's chamber. That said it was less than $10 total. Hopefully with some patience I can get the other pieces cheap. I am, however, the type of person who is willing to pay a little more total if I can pay in "installments" so I am happy.

I might have a lot of that stuff for you...let me check when I get home. I have doubles of the SD playset along with the Ewok village.

Ugh, I am glad they found an outlet for the episodes, and I don' mind ponying up for the service, but Netflix DOESN'T DO HD!!!

I have literally watched every single episode of this series in pristine High Definition, which it really demands because of the animation style, and now for the last 13 I have to revert back to crappy SD? Not cool.

I realize there will probably be a Blu-Ray disc release ultimately, but it still sucks not being able to see these for the first time as they were meant to be seen.

How about some con-exclusive figures to celebrate the last 13 episodes now, Hasbro?

Yeah, but The Blacklist is on NBC and that returns Feb 24th...weird.

If he's a Jedi, where's his lightsaber? Even a half-assed late bloomer like Luke could build one of those things!

Just kidding, I assume that would be a dead giveaway.

Sorry, this is getting a little confusing, are we still talking about ReAction stuff?

If not, maybe that other stuff merits a second thread? Sounds interesting but very perplexing with all the different scales, companies, etc.

Kanan meh. Looks just like that tool Saw Gerrera from the last season of Clone Wars. Not a Freddy Prinze Jr fan either.
