Well, Barnes and Noble finally started to clearance some of the Wave 2 figures at 50% off, so I caved and picked up Brienne and Daenerys 2.0 last night. Time to pick up the Wave 1 guys at Target I guess, and then hope the rest of Wave 2 hits clearance later this summer.

I figured 15 figures was not prohibitive from a cost or space standpoint, so what the heck.

Lists are due to Hasbro at Midnight on July get cracking!  The Top 6 vote getters move on

Here is the JD top six list that was sent to Hasbro last night:

1 - Zuckuss
2 - 4-LOM
3 - Lando (ESB)
4 - Snowtrooper
5 - Ben Kenobi (ANH)
6 - Hammerhead

Thanks again to all who voted!

Now THAT is a good list!

I think that's a ridiculous choice but no one is forcing me to buy the stupid thing so whatever.

I just wish they had limited it to canonical characters.

Does the pamphlet give specific details on the evolution from the stormtrooper armor from Ep 6-Ep 7? That would be the most interesting part of the timeline IMHO.

I bought the Luke and Wampa set off HTS yesterday...they had it for $35, which is odd because the HanTaun set is still listed at $40. I threw in some other stuff to get free shipping and had a 15% coupon so it worked out pretty cheap. I don't have a high confidence level about seeing this at retail anytime soon.

I bought 2 Commander Thorns and a spare Commander Doom off HTS yesterday. I would have gotten Mosep too but he sold out in like 5 seconds.   :(

Shut up and take my money!   :D

I was lucky enough to find the last wave of TBS figures at my TRU by chance when they had just stocked them. I grabbed the Clone Wars inspired figs but left the rest. 2 days later they were all gone, and it was back to R5 and Yoda repping the pegs. I think in some areas they just move so quickly it seems as if they have no presence at all.

Why don't stores order more figures when they sell that quickly though? That I do not comprehend.

Just got back from making the toy rounds and am pleased to report Barnes and Noble has begun clearancing the older ReAction figures for 50% off. It looked a bit random to me as far as what was included or not, but I was able to pick up a few more Universal monsters, a Pinhead and Jason, and some Predators at $5 each.

BTW, if you go out looking for these, they are not with the other ReAction figures, they were laying on a special Clearance table with a bunch of other stuff.

Happy hunting!

Cool, I want this to be good. I like Paul Rudd and Evengeline Lilly and Michael Douglas and the guy from The Strain.

Wonder if there will be any toy support...

Somehow that doesn't look anything like the character from the movie to me. I don't even mean the likeness, the gear and uniform just looks off somehow. Could be a misperception on my part though.

Walmart has been clearancing their ReAction Alien figs and I picked up a few more Big Chaps for $3 a piece yesterday. Got a nice little diorama going now...

I asked for NotLD figs which I would buy in a heartbeat.

Seconded...great choice!

If they were smart they would focus on figures Hasbro has NOT done in their 6" line already. That would allow them to poach business from people like me. I can't afford 6" duplicates at those prices.

Seriously, "Night of the Comet"?!?!

I thought that movie was asinine. I can think of a hell of a lot better ways to spend the impending apocalypse with two hot chicks than running around a shopping mall.

Human characters in regular clothes are painfully boring anyway.

I imagine the rights to stuff like Adventures in the Forbidden Zone, Buckaroo Banzai, Beastmaster, etc would be pretty damn cheap to pick up...any of those would be better choices IMHO.

I'm too stupid to figure out where the blade is supposed to go on his back, so I just have it sticking out of his mouth. He can't hold it and I don't get why a robot would have a hole in its head anyway like that.  :-\

edit: after posting this I went back and figured it out. I missed the little slot above the gun sheath. Duh!
