I see the price on the Simpsons House has come down a bit on Amazon, pretty sure that will be my next big purchase. :)

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / San Diego Comic Con 2014
« on: July 23, 2014, 08:18 AM »
Mods, please feel free to move or delete this if there is a duplicate thread out there...I looked for one but couldn't find it any of the the usual forums.

Seems like a pretty low buzz for SDCC this year. I gues the past few years' disappointments have level set expectations somewhat.

What are you guys really hoping to see? Surprise 3&3/4" figs? Next 2 waves of 6" guys? Upcoming store exclusives?

I would really like to see about all of the 6" figures that have been rumored about for the past few months, including Bossk, C-3PO, etc. I know the TIE Pilot is going to be shown too.

That's pretty much it. There are a couple of pieces of information I would love to get confirmation on too though, namely, what is going on with the Anakin/Clone Trooper 6" wave that has been MIA all year, and can they please confirm plans to release the Ghost in the Rebels line?

I think the only thing I really want to know for this line coming out of SDCC is WHEN. (!?!?)

That's another figure with some army-building potential. Too bad we'll never get a ride for 'em.

Heck yes! As soon as I heard this would be featured on the show I wanted one. Great news, would be cool if it came with some electronics as a nod to the vintage version but I'm not holding my breath.

Yeah, I do get that, it's not an arbitrary dislike for either of those products, I just wish they were placed elsewhere on the toy aisles where they are not competing for peg space with the action figures. I think Hasbro sees it as a chance to increase their real estate, but all too often it seems like the 3 and 3/4" stuff feels the pinch.

And yeah, the SW army men analogy is probably better, now that I recall those early Command photos, moreso than the 2" GOTG figures. Still seems like something that is destined for 5 Below but I won't begrudge them their chance to try.

I just want them to crank up making action figures again for Pete's sake!  :D

That seems unnecessarily confusing, but this IS Hasbro we are talking about, so who knows.

Yeah, i saw a ton of that 2" crud among those listings, as if Angry Birds and Fighter Pods weren't big enough space-wasters.

If the sales of the GOTG 2" figs are any indication, this Command line is already in trouble. (Cause who doesn't want to buy their kids tiny toys that are easy to lose, vacuum up and choke on?)

Saw this morning that the Class I vehicles will be making a return this Fall. Great news, because these were some of the coolest sets Hasbro ever did for the Clone Wars. I hope we get quite a few for Rebels too. I always felt like these were a better value somehow too...esp with the extra figure added.

According to Walgreens, this is due to arrive 9/2.

I predict this will be the next new 6" figure anyone finds in a store. Which means we will be getting Vader, Jedi Luke, and the Black Pauldron Sandtrooper before Anakin and the Clone Trooper, which should have been out months ago.  ::)

So what was the "Big Announcement" they were teasing?

I went ahead and ordered Scunner off, not sure how long it will be til these show up around here. There was some other stuff I needed so I ended up getting free shipping at least.

Looking forward to getting my hands on the upcoming SDCC Exclusive Jaeger set!

My bad...sorry, was looking at an earlier post I had made. It was actually March. I guess a more accurate statement would be we've only had 1 wave of new figures this year.

For some reason it does feel like longer than that.

I had to go back and check...I scored the whole Stormtrooper wave on November 8th LAST YEAR.

That's going on NINE MONTHS now with no new figures in circulation. That can't have been their intention right? What a wasted year this has been so far...

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends Figures
« on: July 16, 2014, 08:39 PM »
Technically all of these figures are "Saga Legends". I think the carded samples for Vader and Snowtrooper are errors as they should only have the Star Wars logo at the top and not the SWR.

Ok, I assume the logo branding will be corrected at some point then. I do get that it's technically one line in 2 different flavors. Fine with me, as long as they slap "Rebels" on the Rebels stuff so I know what to buy, LOL.

I wonder how Gina Carano would look as a blonde.

She will make a kick-ass Avengelyne I know that.
