Yeah, it's a pretty manageable line, especially if you just stick with the TV figures. I sort of wish I had done that, I still flirt with the idea of dumping all my comic figures but so far it hasn't come to that yet.

Picked up a loose Darth Vader's Star Destroyer Playset. It is missing the hatch door, the gun, and most important to me the top part of Vader's chamber. That said it was less than $10 total. Hopefully with some patience I can get the other pieces cheap. I am, however, the type of person who is willing to pay a little more total if I can pay in "installments" so I am happy.

Sorry, I spaced on this, but just checked and here's what I found:

I have the gun that goes on the front
Did not have the hatch door - sorry
I have the top of Vader's chamber, but it is missing the cap to the very top of the cylinder where the batteries go in I believe

LMK if you're interested in either of the 2 pieces above and I'll be happy to work something out.  :)

« on: February 28, 2014, 03:30 PM » put Coyote Tango up this morning....I waited awhile to see if they would add Cherno but finally went ahead and put in my order. Yes!

I probably should have waited on these to hit retail but I was jonesing to spend some dough and I can always get my money back later if I need to, I'm fairly sure.

Welp, looks like I'm already viewing this movie in a negative light. I've only seen one episode of Girls and it was quite possibly the most painful 30 minutes of my life. The dirt worst of shows.

Hopefully by "villain" they mean this guy is playing Stormtrooper #4 or something.

Agree 100%...hate the show, hate the character, hate the guy. A lightsaber to the face would be an improvement.

Sweet replica of the Iron Throne tonight on Parks & Rec...

I personally would like to see them hit the Negative Zone, because that would give us Blastaar and Annihilus. :)

If it had been Boba Fett and not Han I'd be ordering a case right now. Hasbro!!!

I would too, we've already gotten good versions of those characters previously. I'd rather see the slots used for unreleased characters like Bo-Katan, Rako Hardeen, etc.

Pretty cool episode...tense scenes with Rick, some fun with Professor Mullet and Big Red, and Crazy Cheese!

Rosita reminds me of the female deputy from Planet Terror, she rocks.

Loved Rick leaving the door cracked for the dead guy to turn and wreak havoc in the house...

Half the group on the way to Terminus now, the other half still roaming around. Guessing they will all get there by season's end?

Next week: more fun with Daryll and Beth...still worried for her

Ugh, I regret opening this can of worms now, but to clarify my position: I just feel that movies made from comics should be 100% true to their source material. That's it. If for whatever reason that source material seems unpalatable for a modern audience the way it was originally written, by all means choose something else. There are plenty of racially diverse modern properties that would make excellent super hero films.

I would like to see an FF film actually set in the proper historical time frame and not modernized at all. It could have a crazy cool retro flavor ala Mad Men.

And I love all peoples of the world, honestly, I'm just an anal retentive stickler for details. I hated when the changed Spider Man's webslingers too, or made the Rhino some kind of weird machine and not just a big guy in a suit.  :)

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!

Spring would be sweet, maybe take advantage of the finale buzz, but I could also see them rolling this out in the early Fall when the next season kicks off. Either way, I am hoping for something on the larger side but not prohibitively expensive. Maybe like between the MTT and the Republic Attack Shuttle in terms of overall mass.

I dunno, seems to me that in Fall 2015 would be a weird time to release a big item from Rebels... Seems by October-ish it will be Ep7 time for the toy focus.

It seems unlikely they would release a big ship before the movie even comes out though? If it even gets released on time, so much can happen between now and then to potentially create delays.

I think people will like this ship when it comes out, it's a cool design.

Watched a cool YouTube interview with one of the Neca guys from Toy Fair and he revealed that not only will there be a Wave 4 with an all new and improved Gipsy Danger sculpt, but that they are already working on the next 18" figure - Cherno Alpha!!!

Just super psyched about this news, we've already gotten way more out of this line than I expected too, and this latest news is just sweet icing on the cake.  :)

Sounds like Fox has chosen their new Fantastic Four (for the reboot on the way next year):

Mr. Fantastic/Reed Richards - Miles Teller
Invisible Woman/Susan Storm - Kate Mara
Human Torch/Johnny Storm - Michael B. Jordan
The Thing/Ben Grimm - Jamie Bell

Unbelievable suckitude. They actually found a way to make the previous cast look good in retrospect.

And I'm sorry, but Johnny Storm is white and should be cast accordingly. It creates too many unnecessary distractions/questions about the whole familial link with him and Sue. It just doesn't fit the story in this case.

My all time favorite comic and they can't get it right for the big screen...crushing.

I had some fun with this today! Built a nice set of four droids at Tatooine Traders. It was locked down just as Pete described, but luckily my wait was only about 5-10 minutes. I built those suckers in no time though! The "attendant" actually came in pretty handy as I had to keep bugging her for spare parts I couldn't find in the bins on my side. There was only one part I could tell for sure they were out of  - a random green left leg. Weird.

My daughters enjoyed building their own light sabers too...Windu purple with Dooku hilts. I found it odd they had Maris Brood's saber hilt as a selection though. Just struck me as oddly random.
