Not much news out of SDCC on these toys, but I did hear they are considering either King's Landing or Mereen for the next themed wave. I think Mereen would be a lot cooler...dragons, sons of the Harpy, etc.

I hope they aren't disappointed by the first wave sales. There seems to be almost no distribution on this line whatsoever outside of a handful of Gamestops and specialty shops.

Yeah, nice that it is continuing in some form for those that are interested. But I think it bodes ill for people like me that were really into what Super7 was doing before, namely ReAction figures. MOTU was literally all they wanted to talk about in San Diego.

And man, that He-man cartoon they cooked up was just painful.

There are many references to the ability to "hide one's self within the Force" in the Plagueis novel. He pretty much does it all the time whenever he meets a Jedi. But that is not an innate ability nor is it foolproof, nor biological in origin.

What's a Fenn Rau? Is that a 6" figure?

Just so asinine. and they don't even care the thing was a complete sham from the start. Blecchh!

Former NFL Head Coach Dennis Green

"They are who we thought they were!"

"And we let 'em off the hook!!!"  :D

Probably the most epic NFL postgame rant ever, along with Jim Mora's "Playoffs?!?!" classic.

I remember when he interviewed to be 'Skins coach, always thought we dodged a bullet there.

You can order it now:

Nice...8/17 ship date. "But I want it NOW!"  :P

Are they even selling these at the con? Or was there not enough room at their booth with the 8 truckloads of MOTU stuff they brought along?  ::)

I kid, but they do seem to have kind of a one track mind this week. Like no one even remembered to pack the Hellboy figures?!?

Less than an hour to go in the voting now. Quite a coincidence how 30,000 people all decided to vote for Jaina overnight last night.  ::)

Would love to see Hasbro come out and say they are throwing out all the results because of rampant fraud. And then never do this again.  :D

How come people what like Dengar ain't got computer hacking skillz??

You might try GameStop, they are carrying a plethora of con exclusive Pops. I believe they have a full list at their website now.

Yeah, the price tag was somewhat of a relief. This is already shaping up to be an expensive con for me, toy wise. I ordered mine when I got home from work.  ;D

"Edrio Two Tubes" looks pretty damn cool!

Just FYI: According to TRU's website this set will be going up for sale online sometime today. I asked a customer service rep for a general timeframe but they had no clue.

I think out of all of them I'm most looking forward to Ziro the Hutt's Astromech to go with Ziro's Protocol Droid - now if I could just get a repaint of Jabba in Ziro's colors with some feathers tacked on, that would make for a pretty nice display.

You took the words right out of my mouth! What an easy repaint that would have been for them.

And now we need the rest of D-squad too.

Got all 9 figures today and they are terrific IMHO. Only downside was the bubbles are not well glued to the cards at all, so about 3-4 of them came right off during transit. Not a huge deal as I was pretty sure I would open these anyway, but fair warning to carded collectors.

Also kinda bugs me that I now have 3 different scales of GOT figures to display, and a pretty random assortment of character choices in all three.
