Good call. I thought about the cargo net thingy, but the Ewok throne makes even more sense.

Who doesn't want a Jawa carcass though?  ;D

Some news on 2 upcoming BS figures this week apparently...teaser shot of the TIE Fighter Pilot, allegedly in the Yoda wave.

Also, silhouette tease of a Jedi-Con exclusive 6" figure that looks a lot like a protocol droid. No way they do 3PO like that, unless he comes with some kind of extra, but when did he ever sport any accessories?

I guess exclusives are the only way they can get any new figures into circulation anymore, it's been 7 months now with the same 3 figures and I have a growing concern for that Anakin/Clone Trroper wave.

What's up with that crazy ass beard?!? lol

Guess there will be no shortage of bad guys, although it seems we won't be getting much, if any, Vader.

I still wish they would drop the silly names though, that joke has really worn thin.

"Every last figure of this wave of 18 is NOT a carry-forwarded, repacked, or reissued figure. Not one of them."

We'll see. Malgus and Starkiller are clearly carry forwards. How are they going to do an 18+ figure wave?

At any rate, happy to see SA Captain  Rex pop up on the list. Been waiting on him for awhile now.

The nice folks at Barnes and Noble let me take the nifty ReAction figure display box home for free last night. They sold out weeks ago and never re-stocked so I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Now I have a place to display the swanky Egg Chamber playset if I am every lucky enough to get my hands on one.  :)

Read it last night...sigh. Why is that shrewish hosebag even still alive? The first thing Dumbledore's Army should have done after defeating Voldemort is round up all the collaborators like Skeeter, Umbridge, the Malfoys, etc and just have them mass executed.  >:D

Seriously though, was a fun read, I miss these characters. I liked the mention about Lupin's son. Little disppointed Neville and Luna did not end up together though, that seemed like a good match.

So THIS is the new scaled WD toy they have been hinting at...are these more like the 2" GOTG figures?

The environments look cool, but I'm not sold on the concept either. I guess it's more like hyper realistic Legos?

Not sure if I have the space or $$$ to jump in on these, but it's an intriguing concept...I applaud them for trying something new at least.

Not sure how I missed this, but apparently there was another 18" figure announced by NECA last month: Battle Damaged Gypsy Danger with Plasma Cannon (sorry, no link...I saw it over at Neca's home page though) I believe the estimated date of arrival was September?

Would have preferred another Jaeger or Kaiju rather than a variant at this point, but it looks cool nonetheless. Sigh, guess I will have to find more room somewhere...

Chest Rockwell FTW! Lol

I hope to see this figure in a store one day...

So...this is coming in a special assortment with Darth Vader, Jedi Luke, the Black Pauldron Stormtrooper and the Stormtrooper? (as per JediInsider)

Interesting if true. This sounds a lot like that online case assortment that was recently "cancelled".

If these are supposed to hit in the next month or so though, that sure doesn't seem to leave much time or space for the Clone Trooper/Anakin wave.

Nice, I love the Ideal Star Team line...I have all of them MISB except for Kent and the Cosmic Cruiser. The Knight of Darkness was one of my favorite toys growing up.

So...turns out the price on this is going to be $100 and they will be limited to 250 pieces.  :(

I guess Brian Flynn was explaining over at RS how they were only able to get limited use out of the molds for this thing and could not afford to do it as a mass produced item.

Of all the SDCC exclusives, and there are a number I want this year, this is the one that concerns me the most. I went ahead and just pre-ordered one off eBay and will likely do so again just to hedge my bets. (I had bad luck with my Super 7 pre-orders last year)

This has been one hellaciously expensive line to collect. I kinda hope this is it for them after this. I love what we have gotten but it's not cheap or easy to be a completist with this stuff.

Went back to 5 Below this morning on the way to work and picked up the last 5 Phase II clones. I believe this brings my total up to 18 now.  ;D

LOL, that's true...her expression is priceless though.

I absolutely have to have this thing now, no question. What a great idea, I love what this company is doing in general.
