The Vintage Collection / Stupid Question About Bespin Luke(s)
« on: June 8, 2012, 10:41 AM »
As most of you know, I am a total dumbass. That being said, I was going through my collection and noticed that I have two different versions of "vintage" Bespin Luke. One is from the 2007(?) Saga Vintage Collection, the ones that came in the clamshell. But I've also got a newer, chubbier version. When did that one come out? Have there been any other figures besides Vader that have gotten resulted releases on the neo-vintage line?

 Way I looked at it was at $16.50 shipped, that was about retail plus shipping and handling.

I'd feel better about that rationalization if I only bought one figure; buying three at that price reminds me of the night I spent in jail with a burly biker named Ben.

I'm a dumbass who hadn't seen any of the posts about this anywhere, but fortunately the Malgus came up in my recommendations.  I ordered a Malgus and two Imperial Navy Commanders.  Looks like the seller still has more Death Star Troo--er, Imperial Navy Commanders, but is out of Darth Malgus.  I've already been notified that my order has shipped, and the seller has really good feedback (only three recent negatives, one from an illiterate guy and two who were negatively reviewing the product they got rather than the seller).

Aw, ****.  I'd love the Baron Zemo.  Not interested enough in the other two to nail this set down (incidentally, I've got last year's SDCC Sentinel exclusive that I overpaid for that could use a good home, if anyone's looking...), but I'm hoping the Baron Zemo hits a single card release at some point.

Picked up the two three packs, which are really outstanding values.  I prefer both the Snake Eyes and the Storm Shadow from the set to the single carded releases, and both of the three packs come with a ****load of weapons and accessories.  The Kamakura and the Beachhead are both great.

Passed on the Fang Boat, just because I can't stand that big honking gun off to the side.  I wish they'd included a regular cannon so you could switch it out, in that case it would have been an easy two for me.

I've gotten everything I want (more than that, actually; wish I hadn't bothered with the single carded Snake Eyes or Zartan) except a blue CC, but if I never get one, I won't really care. 

Since I don't have any Dollar Generals around me, I guess I'm done with Joes until March of next year.  Way to go, Hasblow.  ::)

Busted out the new HISS and was surprised to find it's a new, or at least modified, mold. No more moving treads, no spring-up action (completely different chassis), and no hatch for figures on the rear underside. Also, the canopy is tinted blue instead of red, as pictured on the box (which bums me out as I thought the red canopy on the blue tank looked super badass).

Finally opened up my Red Ninja... :o

Pretty impressive figure.  I'm not sold on the swivel ankles for all the figures (the trooper doesn't really need it), but on a ninja, it's pretty cool.

Hmm...that makes sense, with the Joe troopers.  I got my black CC at Wal Mart.  Haven't seen a blue one at all.

Just curious, what are you guys seeing more of, the blue cape or tan cape GI Joe troopers?  So far I've only seen one blue, everything else (maybe six or so) tan.

I picked up a movie HISS at Target...close call on those three packs, but passed. Target had plenty of the entire first wave, including Red Ninjas and GI Joe troopers (including brown capes, which I hadn't seen before), but at $10 each, they can eat a bag of wet dicks.

I don't know if that was it--at least, not the only thing.  General's Joes had a report from someone who saw the test screening and said it was terrible.  No character development, enormous plot holes, and various scenes and characters thrown together in a hodge podge of senseless sequencing.  The returns probably came back negative, and the studio figured it would be better to try and fix it than to let it tank.  Or, at very least, to enhance it with 3D to make sure that most of the people who only see it once will pay a $5 premium to see the piece of ****.

I don't think the sky is falling quite as much as people think.  If they were being yanked, I'm pretty sure they would have been yanked from HTS first.  You can still get a full set of wave 1 with free shipping there.

No stands?! The terrorists have won.

Snagged Zartan, Snake Eyes, green trooper, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander and a Red Ninja. Left Duke, a Cobra trooper, and Roadblock.

The green trooper looks like Master Chief.  SS and CC are the standouts.

I found the movie versions of Hawkeye and Black Widow and two comic series Skrull Soldiers today. The Hawkeye head sculpt kinda sucks, but Black Widow is great.

Edit: got home and opened 'em up...holy smokes, Black Widow's good. Excellent sculpt, great paint job (on mine, anyway) and full articulation including ankles and wrists as well as double jointed knees. She's the highlight of this line so far, by far.
