BUMP.

Anyone figured out where R0-4LO came from? 

I still have no idea where this guy belongs on the shelf.

So as far as I know I'm all caught up, but somehow I only have like 3 or 4 of these things complete... I seem to have pieces for 4 or 5 more.  Has anyone seen a list of all of the parts for these various... things... and which figures they came with?

I mean, I skipped a couple of repacks, but unless they're spacing the parts out into future waves I'm not sure how I seem to be missing so many pieces and am trying to wrap my head around what's what.

Irrational Me: DAMMIT CAN'T YOU DISNEY CLOWNS DO ANYTHING RIGHT?!? I COULD LITERALLY BE DEAD BEFORE THIS NEW STORY ARC COMPLETES. HOW THE HELL HARD IS IT TO MAKE A BLOCKBUSTER MOVIE?!? NOW WE DON'T HAVE A STAR WARS MOVIE TO CELEBRATE THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FRANCHISE!!!!! STOP RUNNING THIS FRANCHISE INTO THE GROUND YOU FOOLS.

Remember when it was THREE years between star wars films back in the day?

Is this THAT big a deal?  Someone made a call about what they thought would sell, in the past they probably would have been right about it.  Then Rey became an instant hit, and they're paying with lost sales and bad press.

I'm all about equality, but no one's going to look at a movie like... say... Avengers and talk about needing as many Black Widow toys as Iron Man toys in the pipeline - because that would be absurd from a business standpoint.

These folks are paid to predict what will sell, someone goofed and underestimated the character's potential instead assuming that Kylo Ren and Finn were where it was at... that sort of thing happens all the time.

Funny, I ran across a list of the Walmart closings and the express near my house is one of the handful that's on the way out.

Good riddance.

Walmart Express is a glorified Walgreens with a Walmart logo on it and slightly more food for sale.  We have one near my place, but there's no toy aisle.

Thanks Jeff, I'm not sure how but I never saw that one and had been curious.  It doesn't look terrible... but I don't think it looks great either.  It's funny how some of these low articulation figures have really great sculpts and some of them look really rushed and poorly done.

Is there a picture of the Han Solo action figure yet?

Modern Classifieds / FS: 30 Original Trilogy, Black Series 6" Figures
« on: January 12, 2016, 04:15 PM »
I've decided I don't have space to continue with this line... I was collecting OT only and am nearly current. Here's what I've got:

Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Outfit)
Sandtrooper (Orange Pauldron)
R2-D2
Princess Leia (Slave Outfit)
Boba Fett With Han Solo in Carbonite (SDCC Exclusive)
Greedo
Han Solo
Stormtrooper
Luke Skywalker (Bespin Outfit)
Sandtrooper (Black Pauldron)
Darth Vader
Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
Chewbacca
TIE Fighter Pilot
Yoda
Han Solo (Stormtrooper Outfit)
Bossk
Emperor Palpatine
Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Outfit)
IG-88
Princess Leia (Boushh Disguise)
Han Solo (Hoth) on Taun Taun (Deluxe)
Luke Skywalker With Wampa (Deluxe)
Jabba the Hutt With Accessories and Salacious Crumb (SDCC Exclusive)
Biker Scout With Speeder Bike (Deluxe)
Imperial Shadow Squadron 2-Pack
Boba Fett Prototype Armor (Walgreens Exclusive)


My count says this is anywhere from 28 to 32 figures depending on whether you count Salacious Crumb, the Wampa, the Taun Taun, and Han in Carbonite as a figure or not. It also includes the regular and Shadow Speederbike.

Also, the figures are loose and on display. The boxes are long gone, but I've got all the extra accessories and nothing has ever been played with or damaged... they were all originally purchased by me and come from a smoke free home, etc...

It's tough to come up with a price since lots like this don't pop up on there very often, but based on some completed auctions I've looked at recently, I'm asking $750 shipped (with insurance and tracking) for the bunch and figured I'd try it here before going to eBay. That's about $23 per figure shipped, including deluxe and exclusives.  I think it's pretty fair.  Feel free to send offers my way and I'd consider anything that's reasonable. I'll try to get some pictures tonight, but wanted to list it while I was thinking of it. Feel free to PM me with any questions you have.

Here's my trade feedback thread at Rebelscum.
And here's my trade feedback thread at JD.

I've also got a lengthy feedback history on eBay if anyone is interested but unsure, I can point you towards that.

I'm going with removable on that hood - no part of it looks like it's molded to the torso at all. 

Also that likeness is terrible.

I canceled my preorder... I think this one has $29.99 written all over it.

This is the absolute last thing I want for episode 9.  If anything I want it given back to Abrams.

And that's the crossroads of collecting...  It's either worth it or it isn't ultimately.

Yep, and the main thing is the promise of online availability that never materialized.  So from that my main thing was a simple wish that Hasbro would give these to someone else, where I'd be able to get them without tons of driving, or begging for favors.

I think Walmart was always far more interested in getting that collector foot traffic into the stores, rather than making this exclusive subline easy to acquire online.  I know that I made plenty of trips to Walmart without being successful getting any Black Series 3.75" figures of the 6" Battlefront Shocktrooper.  Those trips numbered at least 10 to 1 in terms of number of trips to the number of times that I was able to get the figures.  WalMart is playing those odds that in those trips where you don't find the exclusive you may buy something else.  And it does happen.

Well that's great for some, but ten trips to Walmart for me is like fifteen hours in the car.   Not happening... The fact that they don't put them online after saying that they will makes me less likely to favorably consider Walmart for other things at times when I'm maybe in an area that has a store.
