The Original Trilogy / Re: Luke's Bespin "Fatigues"
« on: May 25, 2014, 09:45 PM »
Kinda what I thought too  but it is sterile with no rank or unit designation and with ESB still having a Military Advisor on set, I did not know.

So technically Wedge and the boys would be wearing these as they walked around Home One etc....

Assuming Wedge survives the EU purge.

The Original Trilogy / Luke's Bespin "Fatigues"
« on: May 25, 2014, 08:02 AM »
Ok, I finally introduced my 5 year old son to Empire Strikes Back this morning.

It brought to mind a good question that I could not find an answer for on the first page of google...

Is Luke's Bespin Outfit a Rebel Uniform of some sort or it is just "Military Inspired".

Basically is this a Standard Alliance uniform and there are other officers/members (aka Wedge) out there somewhere in the fleet hanging out in this get up?

I'm going for sure.

I've got dinner plans with some different companies that are getting into the collector 3 3/4 figure market.

Check out www.bossfightstudio.com and like them on Facebook as well. 

First up looks like a Greek Warrior (think more Achilles than 300)   

These are the former Hasbro guys that did a bunch of Joe, Marvel universe and Star Wars figures that many of us have in our collections.

If I ever win one of those huge Lotteries my plan is to buy the Joe club license. Or may just Hasbro. You heard it here first.

Should be interesting.  Are there pics other than the BBTS pre-order?

Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit - Toy Line
« on: October 18, 2013, 10:12 AM »
I agree all lines have it, I just guess I got numb to it with Star Wars and Joe (and Joe is notorious for showing awesome stuff and it never hitting the shelves).

I just need them to release the rest of the Dwarves before they fold up the tent or burn the bridge as it were.

Did anybody else see the Bridge Direct Facebook page?   I wonder if they calculated the nerd-rage from the fan boys when they got into the Action Figure business. 

I don't know how to link it, but needles to say when they announced new product they got a lot of arm chair business experts telling the, to give up the license and that Lego is better....

The Vintage Collection / Re: Kmart Vintage Ewok Catapult w/Ewoks
« on: October 18, 2013, 07:28 AM »
Just managed to get an in-store order in for this one... hopefully when I get there they will magically have the Scanning Crew set on the shelves.  There's nothing more inconvenient for me than K-Mart exclusives.

There hasn't been a Kmart in this part of Texas for over a decade, so I feel you pain.

If I could find a Sandtrooper or 4 I might stay interested.  If I can't army build (even small numbers) I have no reason to collect.

I snagged R2 and Luke today. 

I wanted to like this line, but as has been stated many times here, it just doesn't "feel" like Star Wars to me. 
I like the figures (choices are meh) I'm just it sure I'm going to get into the line, if I had gotten a Sandtroopers first, I may have a different feeling.

As an aside and an apology to Hasbro, my 5 year old son loves them both and wont even look at his 5 points of Articulation statuettes I got him. He is not their target market, but Luke and R2have been helping the WalMart exclusive Avengers save the universe (den) all day.

ThIs and the Kmart 2 packs might suck me back in.
