Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines

Just a head's up for anyone that might be interested...Super7 has leftover NYCC exclusives up for sale now at their online store. I just put in an order for the Biohazard Alien Queen and GID Creature from the Black Lagoon. Queen was $20 and the Creature $10. Way better than eBay prices, even with shipping.



Just recently started hitting up the toy aisles again, took a nice break after Force Friday but was curious to see if any stores were restocking yet or not. Definitely not a whiff of any Death Troopers anywhere.

But one of our local Targets did restock with a fresh case of Wave 1 today, and they even still had the Death Trooper when I got there. Good times.

The NYCC clip hints at it being someone. But who knows.

Yeah, so did the panel apparently, based on some of the actor comments. And some Instagram detective work to see who is not in GA filming currently.

I would not be surprised at all if the October 23rd premier of this next season of TWD has LOWER ratings than last season.   I honestly hope it does...

I predict you're going to be hugely disappointed.  Whoever died is going to be spoiled within seconds on social media.  No person who watches the show is going to want that information spoiled.  So I'd expect the premiere to get the show's highest ratings.

I'm actually doing everything I can to find out who it was beforehand. If I confirm it is Xxxxx I don't plan on watching at all. Mostly because it would ultimately be a HUGE jerk around of the fan base. The ONLY way the stupid cliffhanger would be justified would be if they changed it from the comics. (I assume everyone knows who gets it in the comics but I redacted it anyway)

I find it almost impossible to believe it won't leak sometime before the airing too. That would literally be the best kept secret in television since Who Shot JR. Fingers crossed.

I finally found a Cassian Andor figure with good paint apps this morning at Target, so I was happy to pick that up. Had not opened either of the other two I had gotten in hopes of upgrading.

He's not a bad figure, but not one I would have picked to carry forward.

Vader's head still doesn't look right.

Fingers crossed for a 6" Hover Tank!

As luck would have it, the Target closest to me showed a spike on this DPCI when I checked tonight, so I ventured out and sure enough they had 3 of this set still on the pegs when I got there. I grabbed the two with the best paint apps and thanked the toy gods for their generosity.

These might be my two favorite Rebels figures yet. Really exceptional. But a real bitch to keep standing!

Looks like a 6" Baze and Chirrut are coming...saw boxed and loose photos out of NYCC tonight. Not too shabby.

The new 6" Baze and Chirrut look nice, Baze comes with a ton of gear. Haven't seen anything else new so far...

OH snap, now it's on...I want that Seventh Sister so bad!

Dang, it's like that little mountain climber guy just slipped all the way back to the bottom on Price is Right....I can hear the music playing now.  :-[

I thought these were the two best episodes of the whole show so far. I think I probably woke up my kids shouting at Travis to keep beating the living **** out of those two dirtbags. That scene was great.

Stuff that didn't make sense - the whole thing with how the other guy got hurt. I thought Travis was in there alone with those two kids. I didn't even notice what happened. That dude probably should have hid in a corner or something and waited it out. Also, wtf with the "don't look behind the curtain" walker in the colonia. Guy just pops out of nowhere and starts eating people faces?

Strand was utterly wasted this whole season, Will we ever see him again?

Yeah, shocking that the "let's head to the military base" plan didn't work out. Because it always does in every apocalyptic disaster movie I've ever seen.  ::)

At least they are different. This is way better than the Maz Kanata pack IMO.

Thanks to a good friend who stashed a couple for me this morning at a more remote TRU, I am now the proud owner of two of these guys.  ;D

Haven't taken them out of the package yet even - they just look so cool as is.

The best part is they were only $19.99 each, no mark-up like the Snowtrooper Officer. (Yet)

I love this figure!

Think I'm probably in for the night, so I'm ready for a quick postmortem.

I will say overall, more so than any actual results, it was refreshing to get excited about buying toys again. I had forgotten that feeling for a few months during this long lull. So from that standpoint, it was a fun night for me regardless of anything else.

As some kind of marketing event it seems like more or less of a flop to me, but who knows what their actual expectations are. I'm not a fan of contrived street dates in general, but i guess it's going to be a thing each year now.

As far as today goes, I saw pretty much all the figures and most ships in good quantities, except for the Imperial Speeder which I only saw at TRU. I didn't see a single A-wing either, which would have been a bummer if I didn't have one coming from TRU online already. And I never, ever saw that dang Titanium Helmet 2-pack with Sabine and Vader. Did anyone see that?

I guess the TRU Hovertank Pilot was probably my most wanted thing that I whiffed on, but I pretty much expected that. I just don't know how dumb you have to be to only stock one case of your store exclusive for a MM event like this. If you can get a case, you should be able to get 10. I realize there will be more later but seems like a big blown opportunity with that much foot traffic on one night. I would have bought 3-4 of those easy.

With all the exclusives announced today, I'm going to need a whole new shelf just for a Rogue One 6" figures...
