The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

Hasbro explained that all of the Original Trilogy figures released in this line will be repacks. There will be NO NEW Original Trilogy figures. (The same is true for Prequel Trilogy figures.) The focus is on The Force Awakens right now and any slots for OT will be figure we have already seen at an earlier time (save for the delayed Princess Leia).

Yeah, sounds like it's gonna be a good wait for any new episode 1-6 figures.

After months of vague answers about super articulated 3 3/4", now they are straight forward.

Fine with me, Vintage packaging is an excuse for them to charge more money at this point.

Got Plo Koon's fighter for a buck fitty at a resale shop. Sadly minus tail fin (and missiles, but that's given).

Fuzzhead is probably least likely to win, because he's adventure team and fanboys like their butt-kicking fantasy women.

I'd still rather see those ninjas and zombies they had concept mock-ups of...some of the ninjas even appeared in the micro line.

Of course fans don't get actual say into which characters they vote for, as there's unmade characters out there from media they'd want to see more than four fanfic creations  :-X.

Wonder if this one is rigged like the Star Wars polls?

I was just thinking about something after the finale - how did an intelligent, extremely savvy, able-bodied multi-millionaire end up in the prison for junkies, psychos and dead-meat?  A prison that's nowhere near his mansion and yacht?  In what universe does that begin to make sense?

They must've considered him a trouble-maker, like some of the other detainees.

It's as okay a show as it's been.

As for Strucker Jr. Me, personally I'd rather have sexy parties on my yacht over funding international terrorism.

Now turn any figure into hoth rebel  or endor rebel troopers...if you could get that Poe on cheap (clearance) you could customize away!

Now hoping line lasts long enough for Armor-Up Admiral Ackbar with Deep Sea Armor and Urban Combat Armor. Mon Calamari Super Commandos!

Ex-wife had a real doctor to tell her what was going on.

Yeah, they screwed over LA to save their own. Nice work! Who is worse now? The Army for planning to abandon or euthanize everyone or the protagonists for releasing a horde and getting who knows how many killed? (Madison really, really, really hates her neighbors...even ones she liked...didn't even see her look for the Asian husband next door at the base, either.)

How did tortured private get back to the army compound and past the horde in time to confront them...I like to think he was in the pick-up bed the whole time...that's the only way i can rationalize the timing. Otherwise, he takes a vehicle, is moments behind them, but it more interested in payback than assisting his fellow soldiers.

The someone got bitten but hasn't told anyone yet was OBVIOUS. Why? Because other than Salazar's daughter getting winged, the escape was too easy.

Talking Dead didn't address much of anything of relevance. the house in the distance, the infected boyfriend, what happened to detainees who go downstairs (death, but that's still an assumption),

What I would've done.
Daniel Salazar is shot by the soldiers after saying "I'd save your ammunition..." and dies. So much for glib dialogue.
Like McMetal said, Nick gets eaten behind the doors, along with Strand.
Private shoots Salazar's daughter...kills her...goodbye Salazars. (i thought he did kill her for a second)
Doctor goes with the group, takes compressed air gun with her.
Ex-wife lives.

Army pretty sloppy to leave an arena of undead like.  But they are falling apart.  I think their tactics of rushing into a house/building are idiotic, because that's exactly where the undead have an advantage. But then they stopped to use a 50 caliber rifle to snipe a zombie they could've dispatched in under a minute. There's the question as to whether Lt Moyers was killed by walkers or his own men.

I don't think the barber is sympathetic (he only seems so because we know what he didn't know). But I'm not sure why the soldier was so tight lipped...while being skinned alive. "Screw it, we're pulling out, you civilians are screwed!"

The dress-up/trash the rich people's house as just a waste of screen time on a 6 episode first season.

Good to hear they are salvageable. Keep in mind parents/kids aren't gonna reshape anything in boiling water. All the talk about parents complaining about breaking figures...now overpriced bent WOOKIES X-wings.

Pilfering is alive and well at walmart.



Arguably a better figure. Removable helmet (that's Han Solo, right?), waist articulation...

Rubber can melt plastic. It's something I've learned from a vintage toy collecting magazine way back, as well as having some rubber treaded Stompers tanks that melted the plastic bin they were stored in!

Yeah, some figures will yellow no matter what. My 2006 Commander Cody is the best (worst) example of that.

In terms of fans noticing flawed pieces of their collections, years ago I noticed  that GI JOE figures from 2002-2005 get cracking torso's from their necks down, but little attention has been  paid to problem to this day (fans moved on to Modern "gen 3" stuff). The problem more or ruined some of my collection, as the only solution would be dismantling the figures.
