Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines

That sounds neat, but my nostalgia dies around the $10 mark.

Universal Monsters had a Kenner-esque line from Remco that was good (especially for Remco).

Some company made a silly looking Terminator 3 3/4" line...years before Playmates. I have the endo skeleton figure.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: General Rieekan watch at RiteAid

Sad to report that the Rite-Aid near my workplace no longer has the C-3PO with Ewok throne. Was it bought? Did its card finally rot away? It's been months since I've checked.

Now the oldest SW figure is Clone Wars Trooper Denal.  They also still have Heavy Duty and Ripcord from Rise of Cobra.

Went to Wal-Mart today for the first time in months, the movie heroes and clone wars figures wouldn't scan at all "please see associate".

Got  teeny little Mawhonic, techinically a Discover the Force release. I'd passed him up for months, because I'd passed on his vintage carded release even cheaper during an Amazon sale late last year. But with this version I get the flag. The flag is a bit chintzy, mine's not applied/taped even with the pole.

Proper scaling aside, he'd be awesome figure if he were Ree-Yees scale. You could get a team  of Gran mercenaries. Instead, he's just small and strange.

Anything blind bag/boxed over $3 or is too much to spend on chance, maybe $4 if it's something substantial (as in "not tiny unposeable rubber mini figures"). I got a playmobil guy on sale for $3 but I figured out which one it was based on feel. And at least those and Lego minifigs you can parts swap.

The non-McQuarrie one seems more pulp sci-fi novel cover than Star Wars. But that's not a bad thing. Not sure why they've never revisited concept art figures, I assume it goes back to Hasbro hating (collector) money.

Weirdness....Legends are blind boxed in Japan, including the mission figures, I guess.

If they ban the woman, she'll be back.

Months ago, I had a guy bid on DVD's, never pay and I had to wait for the case to resolve.

I relisted the DVD's, same guy under a new name did the same thing again. He did it to a lot of people. Just messed up in the head.

That short story should've been thrown out, along with the entire book it was in. I think that and the cantina book turned me off the EU for a long time.

Yeah, since no one changes clothes in the Star Wars universe, the palace guy in the helmet and the skiff guy in the same helmet are two completely different people.

I haven't even seen the entire wave in stores yet, just Biggs, Vader and Scouty.

The Spectacular Spader-Man

Watch as he gives Hawkeye hell for dating that lower class red-head Black Widow.

Thrill as makes his secretary do kinky stuff.

See the awesome android blackmail the Avengers using sex, lies and video streaming...

The Vintage Collection / Re: Vintage Figures That Need Redone

And since I can, I'm asking for the separate sculpted thigh-strap as part of the figure's pistol holster...  That's such an awesome feature on Ceremony Luke, Legacy Hoth Rebel Troopers, and other figures...  It gives the holster realistic positioning and seems to barely, if at all, hinder a figure's leg articulation since it moves with the leg well. 

As long as the strap is made of soft enough material. The 2006 AT-AT Driver's straps start to tear when you seat him, unless you are careful. One of mine tore completely.

I posted this a long time ago.

If she has a pop out light sabre, that's a deal breaker.
