Wait what just happened!?  ???

I have this mental image of the Hasbro guys just dropping the mic and dashing out the back door into a waiting van to get them to the helipad. Fans clutching at them like the fall of Saigon...LOL

It's over. No mention of SA 3/75" collector line. Let the rioting commence!

Cool, thanks Jeff. That makes sense. I was thinking it might be some kind of odd division between Super 7 and Funko properties.

I was nosing around eBay last night and only saw one (very overpriced) auction for the Haunted House playset. Hopefully more pop up, I definitely want that thing.

Omar Sharif was the man!  His role in Lawrence of Arabia alone was phenomenal.  But I have to love him for being in one of my favorite bad movies of all time:  The Thirteenth Warrior.

Doh, how could i forget that! Great call, i loved that bad flick.

Anyone venture a guess as to why the SDCC Exclusive Flash and Arrow figures are being sold at Barnes & Noble now, but not any of the SDCC exclusive T2 figures?  ???

I think the only move I ever saw Omar Sharif in was Top Secret! Probably not the best display of his depth.

I dunno, I feel like the Fett/Carbonite one was actually not that bad as I recall...there were ones floating around from the Euro-Con, a bunch coming out of Japan, I'm pretty sure they were even listed at EE or BBTS at one point. Jabba is still up at Amazon if you need him. The Death Star thing was a bit of a bear but the sheer size of the thing impacted that I think. It's all relative too based on what you consider a fair mark-up to be.

I would like to hold out and wait for HTS to put these up but I will be on vacation that week and internet access may be spotty.  :(

For my two cents, the over the top anger does not bother me. Anger is an emotion I'm generally pretty comfortable with, and it doesn't bother me to see other people lose their minds. It helps me keep my own insanity in a healthy perspective.  :)

I think the maddest I ever got about anything toy related was when they cancelled the Clone Wars line which was really the only reason I got back into SW collecting in the first place after so many years. That seems pretty justifiable compared to some of the more recent outrage. Never mind price hikes or paint apps, they just stopped making all of the toys I loved. I guess in that way I can sort of sympathize with the lot that feel like the prospect of losing SA figures is the death knell for their hobby.

Anger is just the flip side of passion after all, and the depth of the anger is commensurate with the level of passion that kept this line of toys going for the past 30+ years or whatever. But no question there is a very significant portion of idiocy and entitlement mixed in there too.

FWIW, I think today is going to be one of the most significant days in the history of the line. Things are at a real crossroads here. I don't feel like I have a real dog in the fight either way, if we get a couple more 5 POA Rebls figures I'm fine with that. But I know a lot of people seem ready to jump ship so it will be very interesting to see how this plays out.

And yeah Twitter should be fun this afternoon.  :D

I find it curious that Thorn has gone in and out of stock several times already, but Mosep remains sold out since that first day he went up. Well, not so much curious as aggravating I guess.  :D

That's the one guy left that I still need!

104
Yep, I'm happy to just wait it out and pick one up cheap after the furor dies down. None of their exclusives have been that hard to get after the fact if one is patient.

SDCC 15: Star Wars Fever Causes Chaos At Hasbro Booth

Holy cow that is nuts. I pray for some little weenie to try punching me in the ribs while standing in line, or try grabbing $100 our of my hand. They would need dental records to identify that ************.
