Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I'm not thinking of it that way. I just see it as a marketing gimmick just like making them all really young.

That Wompa looks a lot like the Ultra series one from a few years ago just bigger.

I'm willing to be your droid drug mule for anything on the west coast Disneyland.

That movie just doesn't look very good. I hate the CG Thing. It was much better as a costume. The whole thing looks like it was made for the Disney Channel. What's with a black Johnny Storm but Sue is white? I guess Sue was adopted. Doom looks just silly.

I think it would be hard for them to cancel AOS unless they had a different Marvel show in development. Besides this season ends with a cliffhanger. They would never cancel a Whedon show ending with a cliffhanger, would they???

I also have a complete Hoth World. It would be nice to have to Death Star and Bespin. I don't know why I never collected these things as a kid. They are alot of fun!

Was at Disneyland yesterday talking to a cast member who works in the Star Trader so take the following with a grain of salt.

She said the current wave 2 droids are currently Disneyland exclusives but will be available at Star Wars weekends next month. However, wave 3 droids will be replacing them this summer. Not sure if WDW will have both wave 2 & 3 at the same time. The diamond R2 will be a Disneyland exclusive and not available elsewhere. She said there should be plenty at the Star Trader and won't be a special event deal. They are expecting them soon.

This kid and his mom tape recorded Star Wars when they saw it in the theaters in 1977. It's interesting hearing the audience reactions.

Picked up a micro TIE Fighter to go with my new x-wing. Now I need the Falcon and Snowspeeder.

I don't think Freeman would make a good Wong.



He might make a good Baron Mordo.

Joe Defender / Why 12" GI Joe is dead
« on: May 6, 2015, 09:48 AM »
There is an interview with Derryl Depriest about why Hasbro killed the 12" Joe line. What I found interesting is he said there were 12" Joes in 2011 but no one bought them. I would have shot back that they weren't available at retail so how was I suppose to buy them? The same applies to star wars that he runs. How can he say sales were bad if product was never available?
