The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: August 9, 2015, 09:30 PM »
I'm hoping we'll know far before the night of the event. If it is the case, I'm east coast, plan to attend and will surely post for the folks in other time zones.

Define 'far before' the event.  9/4 is a measly three and a half weeks from now.

I've only seen T2 figures once, and it was at at TRU.  I've turned to eBay more times than I'm comfortable with this line... just recently I've gone there for Mr. Miyagi with the headband, T-1000 with the hook arms, Bloody Jaws (found him a few days later), and T-1000 with hole in the head (didn't know he'd be at TRU)...

Still need to get the T-800 with battle damage, the chase Sarah Connor, the Japanese Marty McFly with Einstein, Flocked Wolfman, MOTU....

Picked up the exclusive "Arcade Version" Predator off eBay this morning. Got "hatless" Sarah Connor earlier in the week. The work continues...

Oh man... I've been looking for the Chase Sarah Connor for weeks.  Can't find the regular non-frozen T-1000 with the Patrolman's helmet either.

Being logged in didn't make any difference for me...

Black Series 3.75" figures not quite dead yet?

I supposed there is always a chance that these pegs will be where the left-overs from those new Wave 7/8 shippers at Walmart will go... but nice to think there may be some new Black Series 3.75" stuff after all.

I'm not a lawyer, but if it is, I think it would be easy enough to get a judge to issue an injunction to prohibit its sale while the litigation is ongoing.  You'd have to be a pretty dumb mofo to think you could just sell the car that you know isn't yours.  That would add all sorts of charges and damages to the suit(s).

Another new exclusive:

If I'm not mistaken, I saw the deluxe 6" sets with a clearance tag at TRU for $19 and change yesterday. I will swing by to confirm later this week.

Of course, the Han/greedo set was still full price. #GoodLuckWithThat

Clearance?!  I haven't even seen them in stores yet.

Have they listed more at any point yet?  I've been checking occasionally and haven't seen anything.

I was running Windows 7 until about two weeks ago and didn't have any problems.

Some random info I read from Reis (Funko) at the Funko Funatics forum:

- There will be more figures between September and December - no pics yet.
- Previously announced properties are mostly on track - some pushed to 2016 (Bill and Ted is canceled).
- They have a long list and a short list for properties... things move around between them, but you've got to get through the short list to get produced.
- They are shuffling lots of things around right now based on what has and hasn't sold.
- Toy Fair for reveals... Comic Con isn't their scene for that.
- No plans for Army of Darkness.
- No Planet of the Apes License.
- Galaxy Quest was on the long list at one point.
- Firefly Series 2 is unlikely.
- Nightmare Before Christmas will have a second series.
- Universal Monsters and Horror will get more figures, probably one or two at a time.
- Leatherface is happening.  Blood Splattered Variant likely.
- No plans for Conan.
- X-Files is on hold for now.
- Focus returning to Pre-90's.
- More Alien figures coming, but he can't talk about details.
- Masters of the Universe is all Super 7, Funko isn't involved.  They are not ReAction figures.
- Die Hard was pitched, they decided to pass.
- No plans for The Burbs :(
- They are looking into doing Hannibal Lecter.
- Adams Family (TV show, not movie) is on the Long List.
- They are hoping to get James Bond rights eventually.
- No Buffy Series 2.
- They tried to get Mad Max, but no one has a Mad Max license.

I just bought a new computer and it came with 8.1, so I can't wait to upgrade.  I've been using Classic Shell in the meantime, which helped, but I learned that 8 is as ****** as everyone says.

So with that in mind, I couldn't wait to upgrade - I downloaded 10 this morning, it was running the upgrade when I left for work.  I didn't have to mess with downloading an ISO or anything like that, it just gave me the message this morning that it was ready to go whenever I was.

Yeah, just wait 13 years for the price to come down.   ;)

I got one for $45 (from Jared if I remember right) and that had to be 7 or 8 years ago.

But yes, with exclusives you'll pay more the closer to the original release.
