Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases
« on: November 22, 2014, 04:59 PM »
I completed the Rebels collection today with a minty Zeb/Stormtrooper 2-pack courtesy of TRU.  :) Luckily they had at least 7-8 to pick through so I had a good choice of paint apps. (Good thing too, some of these looked pretty hit or miss)

I hope we get something else before Christmas but I'm not holding my breath.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

These are on sale this week at Walgreens for 25% off, so I picked one up at lunch for $15.

And another last night, sale ends this evening I believe.

Rumor has it Wave 6 has already popped up at Target... ;)

Cool, but relentless.

Was it Target or Walmart? RS says one and YF says the other (with a quick look by me anyway).

Yeah, I believe the 6" find was from Target, the Walmart bit was just some crappy Command set that noone cares about.  ;)

Bought a NYCC exclusive Jesus online yesterday. Had to have him.

On a side note I'm pretty upset with you McMetal. Can't believe you didn't mention this figure existed in this thread. I'm incapable of going elsewhere online to find anything out.  ;)

Here's some scoop: McF announced Abraham is coming in the next comic wave...they also teased a silhouette image of the other figures in the wave, looked like Carl and and not sure who else. Believe this was all via Facebook.

Just got my shipping notice for "Hong Kong Brawl" Gypsy Danger 2.0. Apparently his casemate Tacit Ronin is still on pre-order. Still haven't seen any new stuff in actual brick and mortar stores...

Thanks Pete! That definitely rings a bell now, glad I picked this up as it was not really on my radar previously.

My obsessive diligence paid off this morning when I arrived at TRU at opening time and found a full fresh case of Rebels figures! I picked up the last 4 I needed, so I am set with the single carded stuff now, except for maybe a couple of extra Stormtroopers to display.

I also picked up the Clone Wars Obi-wan...is this a straight up recard of a previous figure? I couldn't recall in the store.

I tried a TIE Pilot in the TIE, and he flops about comically because it's ultimately designed for the limited figures to work in it I guess.  I wish the seat were a little more snug (control consoles on the sides, little less wide).

It's extra wide so you fit Zeb in there. Otherwise someone at another site would have had a stroke.  ;)

Why do I keep reading reports that Darth Bane is in this movie? Are they just misidentifying the character or is he completely being reimagined in a more contemporary context?

I picked up new 12" versions of Kanan and the Inquisitor that were packaged with extra gear in larger boxes than the usual Hero Series stuff. Pretty cool...definitely glad I passed on that Target set now, as the extras are not included with that one. Oh, they were $14.99 too, rather than $9.99. Maybe that was just TRU pricing though.

Another slowish episode (the whole segment in the women's shelter was interminable) but CarolDaryl always deliver. Refreshing to seem them in the urban environment too. They did a great job with the sets.

Figured we would see Noah again, now we're pretty much caught up with all the timelines it seems. Ready for Rick and co to get back in action and drop the hammer on Don/Dawn next ep.

Yeah, that was my conclusion as well, about this and the Inquisitor's TIE. When you compare them to some of the recent Clone Wars vehicles like the V-19 and Hyena Bomber the new ones just feel cheap and flimsy by comparison. I haven't opened the Phantom yet but I expect as much there too.

Kinda makes me apprehensive for what the eventual Ghost will look like...

I'm no expert, but when I watched the movie recently on Blu-Ray, it looked blue to me. Like, plainly. Maybe it's a spectrum of light only visible to certain nerds.  ;)

I already saw a lot of kvetching about these on the internets, but they look fine to me.

At some point they're going to have to figure out a way to pump out more army building sets that people will buy multiples of, like that Shadow Squadron dealio. I'm sure there are some battle droids coming they can repurpose the hell out of...
