The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)
« on: February 20, 2016, 02:43 PM »
Aren't coincidences the hallmark of the entire series? Heck, if those two gunners on the star destroy blew up R2's escape pod like they were suppose to there wouldn't be a story.

It's not coincidence and it's not plot holes. 

This reminds me of how someone I know was bitching about Rey being good at everything, and my reaction was basically that that's why she's the hero of the story and that there's a reason we don't make Star Wars movies that feature restaurant owners on Coruscant serving food to space tourists or cab drivers on Corellia taking people around some random city. 

Besides, if various characters don't cross paths or end up in certain situations then there's no story.  It isn't called the Force, it's called suspension of disbelief and it's sort of required for almost any big exciting tale to be told.  Anyone who wants to pick huge epic action / sci-fi story that's being told in about 2 hours apart can do so with relative ease, but that doesn't make it a good use of their time.

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" 'Armor Up' Assortment
« on: February 19, 2016, 07:03 PM »
I saw the Armor Up Finn and FO TIE Pilot today.  Finn looks alright, but I passed because I want to see the basic figure version first.  As for the TIE Pilot?  It was kind of uninspiring.

Have any of the Armor Up figures qualified as inspiring at this point?

Do we know if these will be in stores at all yet?  I was hoping they'd be more normally priced...

Thanks, and go figure it's gone at that price on Amazon... $39.99 now.

I suppose I'll just go with whatever I find first.

How much is the speeder in stores?  Amazon has it for $21.99 and I'm wondering how much I'd be overpaying (if at all) if I just ordered one.

The MOTU in color is something I've been waiting for since they showed the prototype versions.

I'm all in on the Hellboy figures.  Street Fighter and Mega Man I'm the fence about.

Has anyone seen a transcript or video of the Q&A anywhere?

And apparently I was wrong.

WTF?

Looks like 0 TFA was what I meant - outside of that battlepack we already saw.

So despite a new movie and Super 7 promising tons of new Reaction stuff, the only things that came out of Toy Fair that fit my collecting focus were a few Rebels figures, a Reaction Aliens set, and a terribly conceived Hoth Lego set.

What a bust.

So the fine people posting at Rebelscum are saying that Hasbro didn't show a single 3 3/4" item. 

At this point I'm assuming that's accurate?

That's a horribly uninspired set.

I was under the impression there was much more to come - that was a sneak preview from last night.

Well for 5 POA that's a really great looking figure.

But yeah, that's an equally disappointing way to distribute it.  Hopefully the paint apps on the repacks are at least different enough that they're kind of variations.

If we don't see Luke and Leia action figures...
