The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 1
« on: August 8, 2013, 10:15 PM »
The big problem with finding this wave is that most stores, at least here locally, are only getting 1 case in, and each character ships 1 per case.  Nabbed a Sandtrooper today at Target.  I love the weathering on him, really nice.

A boot leg of a boot leg.

Right? 

Looks real good.

I didn't originally plan on buying Maul, but once I saw him in person, I immediately nabbed him.  He looks great.  Picked him up along with R2 at TRU last weekend.  What's even better is that they had the BOGOHO sale.  Since I plan on getting a few Stormtroopers from Wave 3, I passed on the Sandtrooper.  I wasn't very impressed with Luke.

Why oh why does Hasbro feel compelled to put a frickin PT Obi-Wan figure in each & every line they make?

Bespin Luke & the Stormtrooper look great.  Definitely picking those 2 up.  Curious how 3 waves into the Black Series, and no Darth Vader.  Oh, but we're getting Annie.  Yippee!  Oh, & of course, Obi-Wan.  Gotta have multiple Obi-Wans, always.

I'd definitely like to see them redo Yakface, but I'm quite content with Ree Yees & I think they did a good job with POTJ Tessek. 

I think Wave 3 is the point where I'll start collecting from this line.  Waves 1 & 2 don't interest me at all.

Well, the Stormtrooper does look exactly like the first VC Sandtrooper we got, minus the pauldron & backpack.  Gotta say there's nothing in Wave 2 that interests me.  Is it just me or does the latest pic of Mara Jade look like Lita Ford with red hair?

What I just wonder is where the TVC will turn up.  By all accounts, including Hasbro, they have this stuff.  They just can't sell it.

It's truly baffling that Hasbro doesn't just sell Tarkin/Starkilller cases through their website.  I guess they would prefer to just let these cases rot in their warehouse.  It's pretty clear Target/TRU/Walmart isn't rushing to order more TVC from Hasbro.

Power of the Force 2 / Re: POTF2 Recent Purchases

Picked up a POTF2 Oola figure recently.  I much prefer the POTF2 version over the pack-in version we got with Jabba's Throne Set.  Actually, I hate the newer version.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Re: TWO LEFT HANDS!

Reminds me of the Jedi Luke that came in the POTJ Skiff with the hips on backwards.

They released a Skiff in the POTJ line?  I remember one in the POTF2 line, but not POTJ....

Never cared for the AT-TE at all, missiles or not.  On top of that, it's not a Vintage Collection item, is it?   :)

Picked up an INC at Walmart, of all places.  Prior to that, the only wave that seemed to hit Walmart was the Deleted Scene wave.

Me too, Chewie.  We already have enough people at the prison with missing appendages.

Let me just say that it was my favorite episode so far this season.  It was nice not to see Woodbury for once.  That storyline is getting old & I can't wait until the final showdown. 

With regards to the hitchhiker, perhaps if everyone in the vehicle was heavily armed they could've entertained the idea of picking up the hitchiker.  But they weren't, and what if the hitchhiker was?  That was the whole point of going on a run, to get supplies and more weapons, because they're weak, right?  If I'm down to my last bullet, the last thing I want to do is pick up a complete stranger.  Also, it's been how long since the zombie apocalypse?  At this point, if you see someone alive, it's safe to assume that they're pretty bad ass or at the very least, tough and/or great at surviving, which probably means they're well armed.  The last thing I'd want to do in a weakend state is pick up a complete stranger who could be a potential threat.  Fear the living...

I have to wonder how well the group would've fared if Shane was the leader and Rick was dead instead.

In a post-apocalyptic world, you just can't trust people.  You can't.  I think Rick made the right choice ignoring that hitchhiker.

Cheep imperial stuff is like crack.

Indeed.

You just can't go wrong paying $15.50 for an AT-ST.
