Rogue One / Re: What Would You Like to See for the 40th Anniversary?
« on: January 18, 2017, 06:30 PM »
I'm getting to the point where I'm just wondering where all the product is?  TFA, Rogue One, Rebels... there's a ton going on right now and in the last four months they've basically put out two waves of figures and 4 or so figures at Walmart that are a total pain in the ass to find.

I'd have expected two to three times as many figures in that span given how front and center Star Wars is.  I hope Hasbro has a lot to unveil at Toy Fair, because I'm sort of stunned at the missed opportunities right now.  No TFA Luke still... plenty of main characters left to make from all three current properties, and collectors always want new items from the first 6 films.

I'd just like to see Hasbro actually start producing stuff again.

Is this the outfit Han is wearing when he dies?

I was thinking about picking up an extra one and drilling a hole in his chest to put a lightsaber through...

From the image search, it seems right - but I was hoping I could confirm it with you guys' help rather than waiting until I'm home to get out the blu-ray:

Sorry to hear it.  I learned how awful this stuff is last year.   :-\

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

I saw it twice, and am having a hard time liking it.  :'(

It just didn't "feel" like Star Wars.

Some guys at my work had the same impression... I didn't get it.  To me it felt as much like Star Wars as anything.  My best theory for the disconnect between me and the other gents at the office is that I read like 60 of the novels when I was younger, so my Star Wars universe is a lot larger than their's... Not that he's actually racist, but I think the new Star Wars' focus on multi-cultural characters takes him out of it, as does the idea of planets that aren't the type we're used to.  He hated the palm trees for example... I didn't care because to me the Star Wars universe is massive.  I did think that basically putting Zatoichi into the film was a bit of a stretch.

Given the imperial presence, I actually felt like it felt more like Star Wars than anything other than the OT, but that's just me I guess.  I liked it a lot.

Unless I'm missing something, these were unveiled a few months ago:

Seriously, with Funko getting out of this game and there being very little on the horizon, this Creepshow business was love at first sight.

I hope they make a lot of stuff like this.

I mean, I'm not a lawyer, but I would think that if you can get in front of a judge and demonstrate that the current 'owner' used legal delay tactics that were clearly designed to bleed you guys into submission, recouping your legal expenses in a settlement or judgement would be pretty likely.

Glad the Craftsman brand will live on even if Sears dies.  I think their tool section is fantastic, but could probably make do at Home Depot and Lowes.

I was under the impression that Craftsman isn't what it used to be.  That the warranties are crap now, that they're made in China...

EDIT: Aaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnd I just read Jesse's post.  So yeah...

I hope you're suing for legal costs too.

Tonnika Sisters!   :-*

I'd just like them to make something, anything, in the 3 3/4" scale that has never been made before. 

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set

I cannot imagine it isn't some shipping/distribution issue and the retailers don't want it lingering on shelves post-holiday...  That said, only Target seems to have them to put out on shelves even, at the moment.  Wal-Mart had them online...  maybe their allotment sold that way?  Can't recall who else, if anyone, got them online to sell?  Disney Store maybe?  Someone did.

My wife ordered mine on, shipped to the store and she picked it up there.  That was about two weeks before Christmas.

I still don't get it.  Why are they getting rid of them so fast?  I haven't even seen one in stores yet.  I figured it would be around for awhile at full price first.
