The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014
« on: October 9, 2014, 12:32 AM »
It's a bit tiny bit of a kitbash, but the base (90%) is the TVC 3PO, yeah.  Definitely the dud of the wave... 

You can get a better look at 3PO in our image database now.

You can see the glued on panels there, but without my TVC 3PO to reference, I couldn't tell you what the "new parts" they said he had were...

Awesome. Thanks for the clarification and photos. Kinda weak that they're re-releasing this one but I expect we'll see an all-new Threepio for the Episode VII launch. Hopefully his appearance hasn't changed that much...

This Threepio is just a reissue of VC06, correct?

It'll be so nice to see actual guys in actual suits again.

Hundreds of them, apparently. Works for me.

Oscar Isaac talks Patricia Highsmith thriller and 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

Have you had much interactions with the original trio of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill on or off-screen?

Yeah, I have. Both. They’re such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. Harrison is back. He went on hiatus for a little while, but he’s 150 percent back. It’s pretty amazing to see him bounce back. He looks incredible. Everyone’s having a really good time. J.J. sets that tone. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and it’s being done with a lot of heart. There’s nothing cynical about the way we’re doing this. Even in the way he’s shooting it—he’s shooting on film and actually building the sets, so you’ve got hundreds of Stormtroopers or whatever, and hundreds of extras and all the ships. You actually see it. It’s all real. Everyone can interact with the world.

What do you think of this culture of leaked photos from set and this insatiable hunger for specific details about this new installment?

People want to know all those special things and when those iconic moments are going to happen, but if all that gets revealed beforehand I feel like it robs people of that moment when they’re sitting there watching it for the first time.

The original Star Wars, of which you’ve said you’re a big fan, are filled with cheesy lines and dialogue which the actors have not shied away from criticizing over the years. How does this compare?

Yeah. [Laughs] I’m constantly looking for a cheesy line to say to harken back to the old ones. No, what they’re trying to do and what’s really great is J.J.’s been loosening it up a little bit and trying to make it alive and energized. It’s not formal. They’re messy, energized people. We’ve all intentionally tried to do that. Just make it a little more fiery and messy.

I put that giant arrow in there 'cause I figured you might go blind after a while.

Begun, the Drone Wars have!

There is a certain JD'er who I predict will lose his **** (in a good way) about this shot:

The Falcon is being constructed at Royal Air Force Station Greenham Common in Berkshire. An X-Wing is on site as well.

I had to stop in this morning to get some Chapstick. There were no Fetts to be found. There must be some sort of clandestine agreement between Walgreens and the local scalper consortium. That's the only possible explanation for them not having any.

Separated at birth?

Sorry to be the bearer of blonde news but Amy Adams isn't a natural redhead.

Anyone watching Toy Hunter every week...I get a kick
At seeing what Jordan finds but man the price he pays or says he pays is bull-honkey.  He said he paid $300 for a MASK Boulder Hill loose with box that at most is worth $150 and said he was going to sell for $500.  And it's every week seething like new favorite game to play is Searching eBay to see what he thinks he'll "get" vs what is reality.  I still like the show don't get me wrong

Oh, that arrived a few days after I put the order in.  It's been great in terms of keeping my armpits from smelling ******.  Also, it works well as toothpaste once you mash it up enough to put it on a brush.

Well I don't know about you but the exclusive Mountain Musk Speed Sticks are already shelf-warming at all the Walgreens where I live!

Speaking of Walgreens horrible customer service and overall computer systems... I ordered one of these guys but have since gotten a new credit card.  To get free shipping I had some deodorant tacked onto the order too - that already shipped.

Since part of the order already shipped, the people at their 800 number tell me that there is literally no possible way for them to update the credit card on the order.  I'm fully expecting that the one I ordered will never come based on what they told me.

Which is absurd.

Keep us updated on the deodorant?

Sorry to quote something from last November but I just found this out today, and it's important. In reference to a guest on Talking Dead early last season:

No clue who the girl was but she can sit around looking cute too I guess

So not only is she hot, funny, and into zombie shows, but she's also from your town, sir!

Gillian Jacobs was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her mother, Martina Magenau Jacobs, was a Carnegie Mellon University director of alumni relations at the Heinz College. Her father, William F. Jacobs Jr., was an investment banker.[3] She was raised in Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania.[4] She is of French, German, Irish, and Scottish descent.[5] Her family owned the Jackson Koehler Eagle Brewery, established in 1847 in Erie, Pennsylvania, where her grandfather, John Martin Magenau Jr., served as President and CEO until its closure in 1978.[6]

Jacobs began studying acting at the age of eight, and attended acting classes on Saturdays at the Pittsburgh Playhouse while growing up.[4] She performed with the Pittsburgh Public Theater, where she was a perennial contender in the Public's Shakespeare Monologue Contest, leading her to be cast as Titania in its production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.[7] After graduating from Mt. Lebanon High School in 2000, Jacobs moved to New York City to attend the Juilliard School, where she was a member of the Drama Division's Group 33. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2004.[4]
