Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Movie Spin-Offs?

I have often said that there is a vast pool of fan talent that they could easily tap into.  This is a great idea, at least from a perspective of input.

It blows my mind when these big companies get things so wrong when there would be thousands of nerds willing to churn out better products for little investment.  Think Transformers, DC movies, etc. etc.

Tap into those that love the product.  Emotional investment can produce dividends.

That business with Coulston and the surgery was a definite holy **** moment for me.

It has gotten much better in the past few episodes.

I saw a clip or read a story with the producers, and things sound grim for Judith. They wore or less said that there are limits to what they could show. I will try to dig it up.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends Figures

I agree with Jesse here.  At the minimum, that arm on his torso looks like it turns out and the ankles look articulated.

I grabbed one of these from TJ Maxx for $39 as well.  He's right, this box is massive.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 5
« on: January 23, 2014, 08:31 AM »
Not possible.  2 of each new figure?  For both waves?  What a ridiculous concept.  How are we supposed to complain about assortments if they're going to pull this two of everything new with no repacks BS!?  Cripes.
I do kind of question the logic of having two waves with what will appear to most people as the same figure, Wedge and Dack.  This after the dud that Pilot Biggs proved to be.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

I still don't see how this makes it out in 2015...hope I am wrong, but I bet anything that gets pushed back.
I'm with you.  This gets pushed back to May 2016, which should have been the date in the first place.

Also read the news/rumor today that Johnny Depp met with Marvel recently regarding the role of Dr. Strange.

With Timothy Burton as director with Helena Bonham Carter in some role.
And he can fight Mephisto and his gang of shabbily dressed clowns!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Is 2014 the "Last Hurrah"?

I'd say it is a given, assuming Ford, Fisher and Hamill are back, that there will be "evolution" sets of the ANH appearance of the characters along with the EVII appearances.  Hasbro loves that crap.

Any league would LOVE the drama that the NFL had this past weekend.  How many games were meaningful in some way all the way down to the final snaps of the games?

Couldn't resist at that price.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: 1/6 Luke & Taun-Taun

At those prices, it better smell like a Taun Taun both on the outside and on the inside!
Post of the year candidate here.  Well done, sir.

I've noticed that we've been able to find everything at retail (usually several times) - things are restocked consistently.  Plus, there is a nice variety to the line.  Sure, there are multiple versions of the Turtles, but she has at least a dozen villains/supporting characters as well in the first year+ of the line. 

This echoes my experience with a different line I have been getting for my son, Disney's Planes.  There was one character, Rochelle, that was packed at 1 per case for one wave.  My SW experience warned me to expect a tough find on this one.  I've seen this one on three or four different occasions, and it isn't because these things sit.  Every store we frequent regularly turns over their stock (pegs empty then full then empty again).

I think other companies "get" it where Hasbro just doesn't.

I think that the league can expect more injuries like Gronk's as the trade off for taking away head injuries.  That said, I think the strategy on taking down a guy like Gronk who is so big is to go for the legs.  Unfortunate for all of us NE fans, but a perfectly legit hit.  Gronk's history of injuries have a direct correlation to the way he plays and his body type.

Also, nice Doc Ock and Vulture Easter eggs.  Sinister 6 too.
