So close...and yet so far.

All you really need to customize on this thing is the cockpit, it seems to me. If you could just cut into the plastic and hinge it somehow, seems like you'd be good to go.

I believe it was $200 if you walked into a Lego store and bought it, yeah. But we don't have one within 100 miles of here and the prices were consequently a lot higher on Amazon, I assume most were from 3rd party sellers. I'll admit it had been a while since I checked though, until this week.

I just got word that my remote field agent in San Diego was able to score the Egg Chamber playset for me tonight! Hells Yeah!

This was the #1 exclusive I was most concerned about, huge relief to have gotten lucky on this thing. It will fit in perfectly with all my other blue carded ReAction stuff...  :)

I believe there are also a few of the "Mystery Figure" Eggs coming my way too, waiting confirmation on those...

BTW, if anyone is able to verify about many different blind boxed figures there are I would sure appreciate knowing. I thought for sure I had heard somewhere that it would be 3 different ones, but now I'm thinking there may be more.

Oh man, I got all excited for a second and then realized it was the 80's figures.  :(

12" BulletMan and I am so there...

Yesss!!! Just got confirmation from my proxy out at SDCC that she was able to score this for me tonight!

Sort of takes the excitement out of sweating out the inevitable HTS debacle, but yeah, that's cool.  :D

Definitely need a new display area though, between this and the upcoming Biker Scout, we're talking a whole new dedicated shelf.

Hmm, well we already saw both of these ships, and the figures appear to be identical to the single carded release, so I can't get but so excited about this. Still I love that we are getting new ships again and will certainly be buying both of these. Please get to work on The Ghost though!  :)

SDCC Skybound exclusive Ezekiel figure(s) should be going up for sale at some point soon at their website if anyone is interested...I guess they will announce via Twitter when sales are open. This is one of the few SDCC exclusives I didn't preorder this year, so I will be watching this closely. Good luck to all!

I was just able to order the SDCC Exclusive "Ending Credits" Jaeger set from NECA's website. Cost plus $13 shipping, best deal I ever got on an SDCC exclusive.

Now I kinda wish I hadn't predordered one for $85, but who knows if my seller will even be able to get one out there. And if so I'm pretty sure I can get my money back for the other one off the secondary market.

Scunner arrived today from too!

If these schmoes have the nerve to show their faces at SDCC, someone please ask us where the hell the rest of the dwarves, Beorn, the Bard, and $%^&* Smaug are.

Seriously, if Super 7 can find a way to get those playsets out, and that Kickstarter campaign for the Chthulu figures was such a runaway success, there is no way they can't find a way to get these into our hands.


The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic Con 2014

This news about Hot Toys doing smaller scale SW figures has me intrigued. They are the gold standard in the industry IMO.

Ahhh, right. I guess I was thinking of Neca, Skybound, etc. Their stuff always goes up while the con is running.

That's actually good, I should definitely know by then if the one I pre-ordered is going to come through.

Cool, I thought i heard something about that. Are Boba and the Stormy still the other 2 in this case?

Let the F5'ing at HTS commence!  ;D

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.
