The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 1
« on: February 25, 2014, 08:51 PM »
I received a case of these from BBTS last week (I didn't have any problems getting an extra Han either), and I'm pretty happy with this wave overall.  I was a little concerned about the Luke after some of the pics I've seen online, but I think it turned out pretty great.  Maybe I just got lucky with paint apps, etc., but the figure I got looks pretty nice.  The Stormtrooper is of course great, and I hope I'm able to find another one or two.  I can't afford to army build these much, but it would be nice to at least have an extra Stormie.  I haven't opened the Obi-Wan yet, because I'm kind of on the fence on whether to continue to PT characters or not.  I thought it might be cool to have the Obi-Wan and Anakin dueling each other, but we'll see.

TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Six?
« on: February 24, 2014, 08:36 PM »
Has anyone else watched the new Season Six trailer?

I have to say, I thought it looked pretty awesome.  I was sort of up and down on the Clone Wars overall, but really liked some of it, and this trailer really has me pumped for the "Lost Missions".  We've never had Netflix before, but always interested, so this might give us the push to give it a try.  We really only have a Wii (or computer/iPad/Iphone I guess) to use for this, so we'll have to see.

First poster is out now as well:



There are also a series of short "intro" videos for each member of the Guardians, and you can hear a tiny bit of Rocket's voice (as done by Bradley Cooper):

Had to dust off this thread due to the announcement of the Mark Hamill figure (along with other celebrities):

Other Toy Lines / Re: 2014: What Are You Collecting?
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:18 PM »
Time for the old post-Toy Fair update...

Star Wars
Black Series 3 3/4" - All OT-based figures, maybe a few others.
Black Series 6" - Definitely all OT-based characters, maybe all in (have been so far)
Black Series 6" Deluxe - All OT-based
Other - I'll likely give the Rebels stuff a try, and pick and choose with Mission Series/Legends

Marvel
Legends - Basically all in with these, so I've got the Cap Wave 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy
Marvel Infinite - Probably a few here or there
Guardians of the Galaxy - Unsure about new scale, but like the vehicles...possibly the figures

LEGO
As I can afford them, the OT Star Wars sets, LOTR/Hobbit, and later this year Guardians.

DC Collectibles
All in on those new Batman: TAS (and TNBA) 6" figures.  Love the show, figures look great.

Overall, very similar to my recent lists I guess.  Primarily the rest of 2014 will be about the Black Series (both scales) and Guardians of the Galaxy.  I'm trying to take a wait and see with Rebels, and actually see the show first, but I'll likely get at least some.  I'd get further into LEGOs if I could afford it as well.  Waiting to see what kind of Hobbit product we get, I'd like to at least finish the dwarf lineup out.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:09 PM »
I was just starting to listen to the Rebel Force Radio Collector Cast (with Curto/Burns) today, and while discussing Hasbro - and specifically the new Rebels vehicles - James Burns said that Hasbro told him that we wouldn't be seeing the Ghost in 2014, but it was on its way in 2015.  Grain of salt and all that, but it sounded - at least to him - as if it was confirmed.  He also said we'd be getting a new Rebels TIE Fighter that was an all new sculpt.

Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit - Toy Line
« on: February 19, 2014, 10:18 AM »
Was there a presence for this line at Toy Fair?  I haven't seen any pics or news, but was hoping there was still potential for some new releases this year, in some form or another.

I am beyond pumped for this, and I think the trailer looks pretty great.  I so hope that the movie does well, because I'd like to see more of this universe going forward as well.  I've really gotten into the Guardians comics (past and present) in the past couple years, and am so happy that we're getting a movie.  Time for Guardians to get its own thread here too :).

The Bullpen / Re: Avengers Infinite
« on: February 17, 2014, 05:04 PM »
I see this line is now called Marvel Infinite, and they showed some new stuff at Toy Fair.  Appears to pretty much just be a packaging/name change from MU, so that's good.  Some things shown past Wave 1:

Yellowjacket
Ionic Wonder Man
Red She Hulk
Steve Rogers
Whirlwind
Bearded Thor
Death's Head
Ares
Deathlok

The Bullpen / Re: Guardians of the Galaxy

I know I'm likely in the minority, but I'm really excited for the Guardians movie and the toys - at least the Legends stuff.  Not sure what to make of the smaller scale stuff, since it doesn't fit in with anything else.  Seems destined for clearance, unless it really takes off with kids.  It is something like $5.99 for a two pack, so at least its cheap.  If it had been 3 3/4" like the rest, I'd be all in - at this scale, I'm not so sure.  Too bad too, because I'd like to get those spaceships as well.

Aside from a couple of the characters, I wasn't familiar with the Guardians as a kid really - but got to know them more during the whole Annihilation stuff in the comics and especially with the recent relaunch by Bendis.  Now they are some of my favorite characters, and I can't wait for the movie.  Rumor is we might get a trailer tomorrow, so fingers crossed.

Hall of Justice / Re: 6" Super Powers
« on: February 17, 2014, 05:00 PM »
Yeah, I like the whole Super Powers packaging thing, because I have fond memories of that line, but repaints for $30 each is kind of ridiculous.  I watched a video at TNI with Toy Guru and he made a big point that this was the end of the line, that this wasn't a restart or anything and that there wouldn't be any more figures outside of these six (offered in sets of 3 or individually in August/Sept/Oct timeframe).

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends Figures
« on: February 17, 2014, 04:57 PM »
Yeah, I'm really digging Zeb as well.  The figures don't look too bad really, for the price.  Haven't decided what I'm going to do with this line for sure, although I'm pretty excited for the show so I may cave.  I collected most of the CW run, but ran out of display room so most of them are packed up now.  I'm more excited for the time period this show is covering, and it looks like it could be a fun line with the new vehicles and stuff.  Seems like, at least from what we've seen so far, they are taking a little more conservative approach than with CW - but there could still be more stuff to be revealed I guess.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars: Rebels - Class II Vehicles
« on: February 17, 2014, 04:54 PM »
These were one of the cool surprises of the show I thought.  I figured we'd be getting vehicles for the new toon, but it was cool seeing something all new (and not super tiny).  I know I'm pretty excited for these as well.  I had been on an OT vehicles only rule for the past few years, but these will be tempting.  That's where we get the gray area since Rebels is sort of in the OT time period as well, so maybe I've found a loophole in my own rule :).

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Hero Series X-Wing
« on: February 17, 2014, 04:52 PM »
Not sure I "get" this thing either, although it does look nifty.  Just not sure why they wouldn't at least make a working canopy/cockpit, although I'm sure it has some to do with pricing.  It just would add some playability to kids, and maybe get collectors interested as well.  I mean, if you're doing a large scale ship anyways, why not at least try to make it fit in with some figure line, right?  The fact that it has a name "Hero Series" makes me think we'll be seeing more of these too maybe?  I like the idea of being able to get a big X-Wing for $40, but I think kids/parents and collectors alike would like it to work with the figure line as well.
