The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)
« on: December 31, 2014, 12:10 PM » Millenium Falcon unveiled. Other than the square radar dish does not seem all that wildly different to me. I was hoping for some flames on the side or a couple of new rear spoilers.

I do.  This was my first instance ever ( albeit as a bystander) of a potential cheating seller in that manner.  I find it curious.

Yeah, I do too. As a frequent buyer/seller this is not something I have experienced firsthand over the years (that I know of) so I find it curious as well. I hope it works out!

Got the Prison Gate and Tower building set for X-Mas...yay!

I'm all caught up until the next series of blind-bagged figures show up, no idea when that will be though.

The December 25th Daily Deal at Entertainment Earth is up to 71% off a selection of The Clone Wars action figures and battle packs from Hasbro. 

15 different basic figures, four battle packs.  Old stuff, but some good army builders in there (BD, SBD, Droideka).

Link goes live at Midnight Pacific on 12/25 so I haven't seen the final prices yet, but thought I'd post now since I'll be busy tomorrow with family stuff.

Thanks Jeff! This was a rare EE sale I could actually jump on...picked up 2 battlepacks and 2 figures for $30 total, not bad at all.

I think it's cool to see these just as proof that there will be figures cycled in dynamically to the line outside of the previous 6 films. I thought they might wait longer to roll these out but I guess Hasbro wants to capitalize across multiple lines, which makes sense.

They appear to be well sculpted but none of them seem particularly interesting. Even the Sith guy looks less than imposing.

I just hope this kind of sudden character infusion doesn't hold us back from getting 6" stuff like Bib Fortuna, Dengar, Zuckuss, etc sooner rather than (years) later. At this rate it's going to take a long time to get through just the key OT characters.

Broke down and ordered Tacit Ronin off Amazon last week and as it turned out, I found him on the pegs today at my local TRU. (Yes, insane day for a toy run) My order arrived later this afernoon so looks like now I have an opener.  ;D

Hurray! I thought this would be a one-and-done type deal. I can't wait!

These are $10 5 POA figures with ****** sculpts/likenesses/decos. No one will buy them!!!!1!!!!11!!!  ;)

LOL....I have spent at least twice as much on ReAction stuff this past year than Hasbro. I dunno, something about being able to walk into a store and actually find figures on the pegs appeals to me!

That is a mind blowing new list..BTiLC?!? Shyeah!

A petition?  Really?  I am not a fan of the way they did it, but if that many people care to complain about it then job well done for Kirkman and team.  Getting that massive of a response just shows they did the right thing in having a meaningful death.  They have to get rid of main characters from time to time to keep it exciting and fresh.  Would people rather have seen someone else go?  Rick? Carl? Tyreese? Michone? Daryl?  Carol?  Pick your poison people.

I actually would have preferred Tyreese or Sasha. Or Tara, or Rosita or Eugene even. I feel like those characters have sort of come to the end of their own personal journeys whereas Beth could have gone in a number of interesting directions post-Dawn. I kinda felt the same way about Andrea though too, so it's nothing new I guess.

Picked up 10" Rick Grimes Deluxe Action Figure at TRU this morning...very nicely done.

Cool find today...stumbled across the 20" Inquisitor figure at Target over lunch. I knew he was coming, along with Zeb at some point, but had never heard a peep about him showing up already. Getting a nice little collection of these guys going now, but they really need to make a similarly scaled Chopper and the gals.

Well, Tacit Ronin popped back up on but now with a 1/7/2015 ship date...sigh. At least I was able to get the R WEB# so I can just called around rather than pound the pavement to find this guy.

In other news, 18" Cherno Alpha showed up yesterday and is freaking amazing. And I haven't even broken him out of the box yet!

For anyone interested, I saw a few of the new Tv Series 6 figures at Target last night...Rick and the Bungee Guts Walker. Happy hunting!

Interesting note: I never realized the 20" TIE Pilot was part of the animated Rebels line...I just assumed he was part of the OT stuff like Chewie and the Biker Scout. But after looking more closely last night I realized he had the "From the Animated Series!" tag on the front of the box like all the other animated figures. (The OT ones do not)

So I filled a nice little hole in my collection that I never even realized that I had, and for $15 on sale at Target to boot!


Classic toy karma, one post about not finding new 6" was all it took. A late night series of surgical Target strikes netted me a brand new TIE Pilot and Yoda.  ;D

Oddly, I found just those 2 figures and then at the next closest Target I found Obi-Wan and the Clone Sergeant. Weird coincedence, or maybe they are breaking up cases like with the 3&3/4" stuff?

By the time I got home I was literally too tired to open either one, but I can already tell I am going to need multiple TIE Pilots...that dude is bad-ass!
