The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Upcoming Black Series figures?
« on: July 23, 2014, 09:15 AM »
Spent some time looking through the new gallery at Hasbro's SDCC booth:

Chewbacca looks better than first glance, looks like the only potential trouble spot is the paint bleed around the teeth. Good rendition though.

Anakin looks as bad, if not worse, than previous photos indicated. That neck joint is atrocious, plus the hair is all wrong and really doesn't like all that much like him, IMHO. This is by far my least favorite figure in the line so far.

Vader - finally a shot with the helmet on! This is a nice effort, except for 3 small but irritating things: 1) No neck, 2) Red eyes?!? 3) That lower, inner cape - why is it so hard for them to display this correctly?

Clone Trooper came out pretty well, kinda boring to me but no glaring deficiencies.

10/15?!?! Yikes, that is a lot later than first anticipated.

I see a lot of guys over at RS jumping on pre-orders, but we have like 150 Walgreen's in this town and I just don't see this being that hard to find.

Nice to have confirmation on the $19.99 price tag though.

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.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars: Rebels - Class II Vehicles

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 TRU.com, 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.
