The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: New York Comic-Con 2013
« on: September 29, 2013, 06:07 AM »
Hasbro isn't attending NYCC this year. No Star Wars. No Marvel. No Joe. Nothing. They are doing a VIP party on the Wednesday before but no official presence at the con. I got the invite, but I suspect it will be a masturbatory exercise in all things Angry Birds Telepods.

WTF?  They're not even showing up?  **** Angry Birds.

In case folks didn't hear. This has hit stores this week for $119.99

They are $169.99 in Canada, so I certainly won't be buying one, even at 50% off.

Actually, they're on sale for $127, what a deal.  Grab 'em while you can, fellow Canucks.  ::)

My TRU has 30 of these in stock!  I think they'll be around for a long time at $74.99 (Canadian price).

But my wife bought me one for our anniversary, so I don't have to think about that price.  :D

Good point, can't argue with that.

I wasn't able to attend the draft tonight, but I seem to have a decent team anyway.  I'm not sure about having 2 Leafs and 2 Canadiens though.  :P

The hockey season just wouldn't be complete for me without the good ol' JD Fantasy Hockey.  I'm in.

That Death Star is fantastic, I dream of having a Kenner Canada one some day. 

I'm proud to present the Rodney Dangerfield of Star Wars figures, General Madine. :D  This one is Canadian, like all my carded figures.

Great stuff, that Jawa focus is looking fantastic!  Is that a Regal Jawa in the corner?  Awesome.

I'd like to play some more pool and drink some more beer with that guy.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: 1/6 General Grievous
« on: August 1, 2013, 05:00 AM »
I broke the bank with Vader, and even as cool as Grievous looks, I have to pass on him.  I think he may actually be worth that price because I'm sure SS had to design him from scratch, but he just doesn't fit into my collection easily.

I hope that Reed is going to stay on as the promoter.  I like how they've built up New York Comic Con, although I didn't get a chance to attend the Star Wars Celebrations that they promoted.  And I think they probably did a far better job than the promoters who did Celebration 2, 3 and 4.

I agree about Reed staying involved, I thought they did a hell of a good job for CV in Orlando.

Did she ever?    :-*

Well, I, she, um...  Damn.   :'(

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 3
« on: July 29, 2013, 07:46 PM »
The Stormtrooper looks amazing, I'm hoping it looks as good in person as it does in photos.  I like how they picked an 'optional' weapon to include with it to create a little more interest.

Sounds like both figures will be offered later on, with the Fett coming right around the corner.  Honestly, for a significant reduction in price and a thousand times less stress, I am at peace with just being patient.
This is the approach I'm trying to take.  I know Fett is coming in a few months and I just can't get that excited about the Han in carbonite.  Of course, I'm primarily a loose collector these days, so the packaging doesn't concern me much.

Though I certainly have to agree with others that making it difficult to get the very first figure released in a new line is an odd way to get collectors excited about collecting it.
