Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit -LEGO
« on: August 6, 2014, 01:53 PM »
Grabbed the SDCC Bard the Bowman mini-figure off eBay this week. Probably paid more than I should, but since it's still unknown whether this version of the character will show up in one of the four Hobbit sets coming later this year, I took the gamble.

I never got the Azog figure from last year's SDCC, but that ended up being okay since he showed up in the Dol Guldur set - if that ends up being the case with the Bard minifigure as well, then I'll just keep it for what it is - a nice memento from SDCC...

So far I've picked up:
Jedi Scout Fighter
The Ghost
The Phantom

I've seen all of the new 2014 sets at my local Toys R Us - but nowhere else. Since I don't have a Lego representation of it yet, I'll probably grab the B-Wing next.

I'm also circling some eBay auctions for the SDCC Ghost Microfighter w/Chopper.

I'll second that...  If you wanted mint, why didn't you order from EE or BBTS?

You buy Amazon, you get Amazon.  I'm not a carded guy so I'm maybe not being very thoughtful, but I am an "I'm tired of paying so much for figures" guy, and I'd rather not see the $35 nets you free shipping deal go away on "collectibles" or something.  I just want to open the stuff and get a reasonable price.

Agreed - I only ordered some Stormtrooper Commanders from Amazon so I could get a few more openers of him - and that's exactly what they will be - openers. My MOC ones came from the case I ordered from EE.

Got my Wave 4 case from EE today.

Luke isn't as bad as the pictures made him out to be. Yes, his elbows are horrible, but I can certainly appreciate what they were trying to do - and that was enable him to bring his hands up and grab the shoulder straps of the backpack - and really, the type of joint they used is the ONLY way to achieve a near 180degree bend in the elbow.

Glad to finally have some NEW figures in-hand.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: July 30, 2014, 05:15 PM »
Let's see..... that would be NONE!  Well, the only one that might be considered halfway confirmed was the Han Solo in Hoth gear, which likely refers to the 6" Deluxe figure.  But I just have to shake my head at sites that should know better running rumors like this as news without any sort of independent verification

Agreed. With Hasbro producing large numbers of figures in years past, I have always wondered if Stan was doing nothing more than just guessing at where Hasbro would go next with figures and just throwing it out there and seeing what sticks.

But now with the breadth and depth of the line being almost non-existent, he's going to be getting less and less accurate with his guesses.

Anyone else interested in this Exosuit set? Comes out next week and supposedly will only have a single production run.

Yeah, I'm thinking about picking it up. I won't be upset if I don't get it though. I got $20 VIP rewards, might put them towards that.  :-\

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Tiny Death Star app

I don't think they have any plans on updating it anymore. I guess the number of players didn't meet what they were expecting. Wish they would just open up the reward levels and characters and make them purchasable.

I hope they find a way to re-release the Wookiee Catamaran someday.  This is an old set I've never been able to track down for a reasonable price.


Would love to get that vehicle, as well as the Wookiee "helicopter" (or what ever that vehicle is called)

The Hollywood Reporter has a story up now about a new Lonely Mountain set coming later this year - looks pretty good...

Here is the link to their story:

Seems like a bit much for $130, but it looks like they've cut off part of the set for the picture, so it's hard to tell...

The Bullpen / Re: LEGO Makes Theirs Marvel

Picked up a bunch of sets since my last post:

Spider-Trike vs. Electro - the trike does indeed stink, lousy vehicle, like I said before, picked this up purely for the Electro mini-fig
Avengers: Captain America vs. Hydra - grabbed it using my Kmart Shop-Your-Way Rewards, had enough to cover the whole purchase
Captain America's Avenging Cycle - grabbed in an eBay auction, haven't received it yet
Loki's Cosmic Cube Escape - grabbed in the same eBay auction as above
Spider-Man: Daily Bugle Showdown - my site-to-store order from WalMart is ready for pick-up, getting it tonight on the way home
Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash
X-Men vs. The Sentinel - these last two sets picked up using the TRU Buy-one-Get-one-40%-off today

I have another $15 in Kmart Rewards that I'm probably going to put towards the Spider-Helicopter Rescue set and I'll grab the Doc Ock Truck Heist set from WalMart since they have the best price.

Once I do that, I'll be down to just needing polybag sets, remaining sets from 2012 and the convention exclusives (which I have no intention of ever getting, no way can I afford one minifigure for $300).

Good to see as expected the Snowtrooper is a carry forward as I will be buying scads of him.

It looks like that entire wave is carried forward into the new package line, right? Jedi Luke, Clone Wars Obi-Wan, Snowtrooper & Darth Maul - am I missing anyone from the wave that so far has only hit in non-US markets?

Anyone going that wouldn't mind trying to pick up for the me the Lego Exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy or the Mini-Ghost w/Chopper sets that were just announced?

I would be willing to throw in polybag "Good Morning Bilbo Baggins" or "Darth Revan" in addition to the cost of the item and extra $$$ for the effort.

Picked up the Milano on the way home from work last night - and I put it together this afternoon.

Fun build - great to have the five members of the team in Lego now.  It was cool that Lego made the Starlord from the two sets he appears in different designs. Based on the trailer it looks like the Rocket mini-figure is from the prison sequence. The Gamora and Drax figures from from the part in the trailer where they are all in similar uniforms and walking down a hallway. So I guess there's still room for Rocket from the hallway scene and Quill, Drax and Gamora from the prison sequence. Wouldn't be surprised if one or more of those showed up as a poly-bag at some point.

I think my next sets will be the Daily Bugle set and the Spider-trike w/Electro (mostly cause I want that mini-figure)

How's the Spider Trike set Pete? I've heard nothing but bad reviews for it (although I might pick it up on clearance just for the Electro)

The one I got wasn't the one with Electro - it was the cycle one with Nick Fury, a shield vehicle and Venom.

I have thought about picking up the Spider-Trike one if only to get the Electro mini-figure but I haven't pulled the trigger on that one yet.

Like you, I'll probably wait for there to be a promo/sale at Lego shop before getting many more sets - I did see the Daily Bugle set for a great price on - so I might grab that one but otherwise, hold off on any others.

Completed the Iron Man 3 sets with the Mandarian Showdown and Sea Port Battle - kinda weird that these two sets have ZERO connection to the actual movie.

Also picked up the Poly Bag Spider-man Glider and the Spider Cycle Chase sets from Toys R Us - had a coupon for $5 off $25 or more purchase and wanted to use it.

Still trying to decide if I want to finish off getting all of the rest of the Lego Marvel sub-line... definitely picking up The Milano set next to finish off the GotG mini-collection...
