Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars Posters

Got the Force Awakens teaser poster via that Disney Movie Rewards program last week.  To be honest, I hadn't ever done anything with those "points" until hearing about the poster offer, and they are actually pretty cool.  Between the Marvel, Pixar, and various Disney movies we had picked up anyways, we had plenty of points to get both this poster and the Ant Man movie poster as well - shipped to our house for free.  I'm looking forward more to the first "art" poster that we'll see, but this was still pretty cool.

Headed to eBay, mods please delete post. Thanks!

Modern Classifieds / For Sale: Carded Vintage Collection Figures
« on: July 21, 2015, 04:31 PM »
Going through the collection this summer and I've got some things to sell if anyone is interested.  First up is a batch of carded vintage collection figures from a time when I thought I was going to try to have a complete carded set of these (I later stuck to only OT).  Price is $7 each (not including shipping) and if you are only interested in the figure I can sure open them as well.  If you decide you want the entire lot, I'll take care of the shipping costs.  Otherwise, shipping is not included in the prices listed and is based on weight.  PayPal is preferred. I should be listing more stuff soon, and hope to add pictures.  If interested, please contact me via PM.  Check me out in the feedback thread here:;action=display;threadid=1891  Thanks for looking!

The Bullpen / Re: Marvel Legends

Really like the new Legends stuff shown this weekend again.  I've pretty much gotten to the point where I'm all in with this line anymore, at least over the past couple years, and hope to continue that from here on out.  Hasbro had a rocky start with the Legends stuff, but it really seems like they are knocking it out of the park on the newer waves.  The new Spidey wave looks great, plus the other peeks that were shown like Mockingbird, Namor, Taskmaster, etc.  And hey, we actually know what's coming out in this line ;).

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2015

Great points Jeff, my feelings as well.  I'm really starting to get hyped for the movie at this point, and want to feel the same way about the toys, but there's just nothing there.  Like it has been mentioned, it would have been nice if they were allowed to at least show off the characters/things already seen in trailers or officially released stuff.  The new "big 3", Han/Chewie, or something along those lines.  Or, if nothing else, some explanation of what is on the "12-24 figures in the Saga Legends style, 6 new Black Series figures, this number of vehicles, etc."  We've seen retailer lists and all of that, but it would just be nice to have something more to go on.  I'm guessing we'll at least see some sort of information release maybe via Hasbro's official channels online or something?  Hopefully.

I'll admit that it does look pretty cool, and I have been collecting the OT 6" stuff so far and planned to pick up the Force Awakens as well.  But the price (and space it will take up) might keep me away.  It really depends on what the rest of the line looks like, and we just don't know at this point.  If there is little to nothing out for 3 3/4" (or it isn't something I'm interested) I might be able to justify this.  But again, there's the space issue.  Looks cool though.  I kind of dig the designs from this movie that we've seen so far.

Although the little of what was shown looked very nice (looking forward to those new 6" figures), I have to say that I was disappointed there wasn't at least a little more.  For the last 3-4 conventions, where all Hasbro could say was "we can't talk about Fall 2015 or beyond", they seemed to give the impression or even straight out said "wait until SDCC".  Was this seriously what we were holding our breath for? The giant TIE (while really cool) wasn't quite the reveal I thought we'd get.  I thought we would at least see the finished figures for Rey, Finn, etc. that were leaked months ago in prototype form.

I can understand having secrecy going into the movie as well, and don't even mind that to some extent, but it would be nice to have an idea what the line will look like for budgeting and all of that.  I know not everyone has to do that, but I know that I do, and its nice to have an idea of what's coming.  Plus, I think that any character that has been shown in the trailers could have been shown in toy form.  So, for example, if the 3 3/4" is going to be 5 POA or whatever, show us a Rey, Finn, and Poe so we can get an idea of what they're going to look like.  They are starting to run out of chances to promote this prior to Sept 4 (not that they necessarily need to), and it would be nice to get a look at at least a few things.  That being said, it might be out of Hasbro's hands on this one too.

Yeah, it is Ulik not sure what happened there. See now, I'd like it see Cosmo, but not necessarily on his own.  Some of them, like Black Spidey and Mysterio already have decent figures. I'd rather see some of those you listed, like Tigra or Jocasta. Some of the others are a little more boring.

Looks like Hasbro is running a poll to pick the next Legend, to be voted on throughout SDCC.  Here's- the choices that I see:

Nova (new version)
Black Spider-man
The Hood

Voting on the finalists is after Comic Con

I don't have a problem with anyone wanting a certain character, everyone has a right to want their favorite character or just to vote for something specific. For me though, I'd be a little disappointed if Revan won. Part of it may be that I'm just not someone familiar with the character/story in the first place, but also when the 6" line started it seemed like they would hit the heavier hitters and army builders and work out from there. There are so many other characters I'd rather have than Revan (any on this list), and my focus with this line has been OT (and possibly TFA).

I'm also not sure the "given" list is as long in this age of new Star Wars every year. I'd personally like to see Lando, just because previous Landos weren't the best sellers and that might scare Hasbro off a bit as well. We only get 15-20 new figures a year in this line, and once new movies begin that might take up a bit more as well.  My daughter would love to see Sabine, so I could see that route too. Nice to see Fans Choice return, but I agree that Revan seems like a boring choice. Heck, it may be blasphemous, but I'd feel similar if the Tonnika Sisters won. In 3 3/4", you bet, but I don't necessarily need a 6" one taking up slots from other characters.

I'm sure many of these are a given, but if I'm making a list of ones I want the most:

1. Lando Calrissian (Bespin)
2. Han Solo (Bespin)
3. Princess Leia (ANH)
4. Luke Skywalker (Farmboy ANH)
5. Snowtrooper
6. Emperors Royal Guard
7. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Old Ben)
8. C-3PO
9. Hammerhead
10. Jawas

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Official Pixar Thread
« on: June 22, 2015, 02:31 PM »
We saw this on Friday and loved it as well. Definitely up there with Pixar's best I think, at least for me. I thought the general premise was pretty clever, and liked the way they portrayed a lot of the memory/emotion stuff as well. Not sure why it would cause anyone to sob, but maybe she had some stuff going on in her life. It does have that bit of emotional punch, similar to other Pixar stuff, but nothing too extreme

I haven't had a chance to come post here, but I had a nice run lately at Target over the past week and a half and found Luke Stormie, Emperor, Leia Boussh, IG-88, and Han w/Taun Taun.  Nice to be all caught up on the OT stuff for now.  Starting to wonder where I'm going to put all these things, as the shelf I had reserved for 6" Black Series is already full now (without the Taun Taun on there).  Time for some rearranging.

These have been trickling into our local Target as well, and I've picked up a few.  I have to say though, I did feel a little bit of buyer's remorse.  $13 really does seem like a lot for these figures.  I know its been said on here before, but I guess I haven't really picked much up since the most recent price increases.  I passed on the clones (although I was tempted with Doom just because of the Marvel tie), but picked up Gold Leader, Chewie, and Dagobah Vader.  I'd like to get Rex as well, if/when he shows up.  I know we still have no idea what type of figures we'll see for the new movie(s), but I hope they can find a happy medium because I just don't think I can keep up at $13 each.
