The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 2016 SDCC Deluxe ANH Ben Kenobi
« on: August 9, 2016, 11:44 AM »
Had a Ben in my cart, processing checkout at 10:20AM CST... got an error message and of course it had sold out while trying to process the order. ::)

Same here. And I also had no "Add to Cart" button on my individual pages so I had no idea wtf to do. I had to run to a whole different computer.

It's a stupid thing to get angry about but I can't help it. Make more of these goddam things, Hasbro! You could have sold a hell of a lot more of these today.

And if anyone here at JD has an extra Jyn or Obi-Wan I am interested.  ;D

No sign of this in stock as of 8:40 CST this morning.  That said, I noticed one of the other products could be added to my cart, so I hope they haven't come and gone already.  Also noticed that the description says "Limit of 2 per household" instead of the usual 1 per person limit.  If anyone ends up with a spare, I'd love to get one of these.

No, they haven't gone available yet, I have been watching like a hawk all morning.

Which one were you able to get into your cart and how?  :D

Stopped by a Target that was in the middle of a toy reset. They have finally thrown in the towel and put the big TIE on clearance. Only $118.88 right now, but if they hold true to form this will eventually get to 75% off which would be about $42.50, which is the right price for me to start fleet building.  >:D

Other odd thing I noticed was this location had started clearancing their 6" SWB figures for $13.98. It's probably a good thing to help clear the pegs of all those Snow and Flame Troopers, but I thought for sure they would be carrying the same DPCI over for these. If they do, this will create some interesting issues I predict. (FF figures ringing up at the clearance price, or not at all even)

Also, a bunch of the stores in my area just started getting in more of the Ahsoka wave. Odd timing.

Nooooo!!! I loved him on that show. Except near the end when he turned on them all.

Seemed young, sad.  :(

Thanks Jeff! That makes sense now.

Got mine yesterday...very nice set.

Can't help wondering why there are 3 ports on top of the domes and only two accessories. What the heck is that third one for? It's too big to fit either of the attachments.

I can't recall but maybe there was originally an extra one that came with R2?

I appreciate that insight as well. I am thankful for the opportunity to add more Clone Wars characters to my collection, even if they don't match the previous Astromech iterations.

I do wish there was some way we could get the rest of D-squad made though, having just one of them (ok, 2 if you count R2) makes me pine for the rest.  ;)

The Worst figures look amusing. They maybe not be ReAction, just Super 7.

I saw those too, and was slightly intrigued, but after nearly an hour for fruitless searching online for some kind of backstory on these, I finally gave up. I have no idea if that is just something they dreamed up or if it is actually based on something.

Wondering what the price will be on this thing...that is an insane amount of interior detailing. Very well done, I commend them.

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.

Season 7 official trailer is out!

And some people thought they wouldn't have the stones to put Shiva on the show...blasphemy!

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!
