Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit - Toy Line

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....

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.

#07 Captain Piett
#08 Torryn Farr

The first Star Wars game to be excited about since Battlefield II. 

Hopefully it will be available for PC.

Joe Defender / Re: GI Joe Convention 2013

Sad I missed it, more sad that anything new from Hasbro seems to have missed it too.

If Wave 2/3 Roadblock is "battle kata" roadblock, then yes it is removable.

It seems the SDCC exclusive for Joe this year has a good chance of being very expensive.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: A 6" Exclusive for SDCC 2013?

Are these veiled hints?

It's my understanding sort of that everything with this is really fluid, so while people are speculating wildly about it, I think it's good to keep it in perspective...  It seems, at best, written in wet cement but far from set in stone.

I'm curious as anyone what it could be.  I may not like the 6" line particularly, and won't be buying, but I like looking at them.

Maybe some light will be shed in a week.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6 Inch Figures?
« on: January 31, 2013, 08:15 AM »
Ok, I have to tap the brakes on my whole "I'm in"....

I abhore painted "flesh" on human characters almost as much as I loathe PT figures. 
I realize the pic we have seen is a hand painted clearly a prototype (paint chips near collar and shoulder joint and pins visible in legs), so we will see.

If these come out with painted heads instead of cast, I will look at them like I do so many other 6in figures, and that is just glance at them, pick them up and wish they were better and return them to the shelf.  A modern day "catch and release" kind of deal.

And to clairfy my earlier post, I was not implying that DD was talking down to us, it must have been the mood I was in when I read it.   The numerous times that staff here at JD have interacted with him at Toy Fair or GI JOe Conventions he was as excited by the stuff as we were and even gave Rob some exclusive photo shots before pulling an item off the display.  I assume the fanboy rants are on otheR sites?
