Wow! Great paint jobs all around. I'm digging that model Y-Wing.

Saw this last night. The wings don't open. The plastic is the same plastic used for the Star Speeder 3000. Kind of cheap but solid. There isn't a lot of detail on the ship however it could be made to look fantastic with a paint job. The R2 is just a dome like what was included in the ROTS Jedi starfighters. It think the slot could be drilled out to hold a real R2. The is nothing inside the toy and no other play features. I guess we could cut the canopy off and build out some kind of cockpit for a figure. It's big enough to hold a figure in there. The canopy could be recasted clear.  Electronics could be taken from the FX version and stored inside. The wings could be cut  and extra plastic sheets added to the holes.

It's interesting it says Disney on it.

I don't think anyone actually read the comic. It's too obscure kind of like Ant Man. Marvel must have had a lot of influence on this one's marketing. Disney usually screws up the marketing angle royally. Can you say John Carter or Frozen?  Frozen did well without the stupid Oloff marketing while no one has a clue who John Carter is.

I have the scanned artwork for that if you wanted to print out your own Death Star.

Luke and Yoda came from Amazon yesterday. I like both figures. Luke has a nice exhausted look on his face and Yoda has a little personality in his.

I also got hoth headset girl. I swear this is just a hoth Leia body with a new head and accessory. I do like her though.

Also got the Japanese carded version of Darth Plaguious. I love this figure!

Saw Chewie at Target last night. He is a nice figure for what he is.

Hasbro should have made a real green army men bucket of figures for this line. Imagine getting fifty random guys in a bucket for about $10. That would make them worth it. If people still customized, these could be nicely painted along the lines of Warhammer.

Saw the Battle of Endor set at $99 at TRU. What an insulting joke that is! I don't see how this is worth the price. The presentation sucks. The figures are just lined up in no action display and the ATST has half its parts missing. They should have included the bunker at that price. Between Hasbro's and ebay's prices this hobby has hit rock bottom. Hasbro isn't even trying on this one.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Deluxe Line

Saw the 6" Jabba at Target last night. For $40 I am not impressed. He is nicely painted and detailed but just seems so lonely in that big box. I think at least the hooka and Crumb should have been included at that price. It's just too expensive for that it is. The only movement he has is you move his arm to make his mouth open. The thing is shaped, looks and priced like a turd. I'm sure they will be impossible to find since Target doesn't restock star wars anymore beyond initial resets.

Looks like GotG brought in $94 million on its opening weekend. Just a million short of Cap2.

then you put the box down and walked out of the store?

Those are really nice. I'll have to keep that picture for reference someday.

Same with me Bill. I remember seeing Thunderdome in the theaters and enjoying it but never saw the other two movies probably because they were rated R and I was just a little kid. I've seen them since and they are ok b-movies. They feel a little slow as you wait for more car chases. This movie could reintroduce Max to a new generation that never saw the originals. People would probably complain there are no zombies in it.
