The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII

Yeah, that sounds troubling.   :-\


While I'm excited about being only 18 months away from EP8, I'm concerned that a weird, green-screen driven movie is going to make people think less OT and more PT.

I have had ZERO luck finding this wave - starting to get really frustrated - been hitting the same two WalMarts where I was able to score the Wave 2 figures religiously and those stores are nothing but product wastelands.  >:(

Pretty sure I saw Poe take the jacket off as soon as he got in the TIE Fighter.

Yes, he definitely did.

I had hoped/thought that maybe MVS's character was an old/aged Kanan as well but I realized he wasn't when Kylo Ren dispatched him so quickly, would have been cool if he had been Kanan and right when Ren confronted him, he took out the two separate pieces from different spots on his belt, clicked them together, and ignited a lightsaber - for viewers unaware of the Rebels cartoon, he'd appear as just a Jedi in hiding and it would have been a great easter egg for those of us who watch Rebels.

Oh well...

I think we're going to have to wait til the end of the cartoon to find out what happens to the crew of the Ghost - hopefully they DO actually give us an ending with Rebels...

Found Wave 2 and 3 at my local Walmart.  Guess they were waiting for the TFA to open.

That's what I was hoping for as well, but unfortunately, all I found was remnants of a Wave 2 case.

I'm definitely going to keep hitting the two closest WalMarts to me in hopes of scoring Wave 3...

Cryptic, SPOILERy plot synopsis of BvS re: Doomsday from the production designer...

"Doomsday isn't just the final act... We are able to tell a story in a fresh way. Doomsday is an evolution essentially. Fans may be aware of 'The Death of Superman' story, but this is handled in such a new way.

When the film is called Batman v or versus Superman, it really has a lot of levels to the meaning. Superman isn't just killed off at the end of something. We see how he evolves as part of Lex's plan to protect the world.

Seeing the Superman we know, be gone, and then replaced with this reproduction is really going to make fans think of how we look at these super beings. It was especially interesting to figure out, how would you create Superman from Zod... then how would that evolve into Doomsday."

I don't even know how to respond to that...

Not sure if this was part of an interview or not, but if it was, and I was the interviewer, I would have stopped him mid-statement and just said "please stop, don't you want at least SOMEONE to see this movie?"

Scored the First Order TIE Pilot this morning at the Toys R Us near where I work. Nice figure, have no plans on getting the 6" scale TIE Fighter so just getting this will have to do...

Awesome, thanks.  I'll make sure to post here if by some freak chance I find them - but the next time I'll be near a Wal-mart at all is going to be at least 8 days from now.

I was able to pick up that Yavin Ceremony Leia for you Rob.

Message me your address when you get a chance - I'll send them out early next week.

I'd take the Kylo Ren off your hands - and I'd be opening them anyway so you could ditch the box and just ship him in something small.  If you run across a Leia that'd be great too, but I don't want to ask anyone to go out of their way, so if you were stopping anyway - awesome, if not no worries.

Okay - no problem - the store that I saw it at is on my way home from work so it's definitely not out of my way. I'm good for SA First Order Stormtroopers, so if I stumble across one of those, like with the Wave 3 case, I'll grab that for you as well.... I'll shoot you a DM later tonight to let you know if I was successful or not picking up the Leia.

Do any of you guys happen to have extras of wave 2 you'd like to sell?

I have a spare Kylo Ren, and if you don't care about the condition of the package, I could probably grab a Princess Leia on the way home from work if you want (it was there this morning - so no guarantees).

I was a tad bit disappointed that instead of killing Ward, Coulson didn't bring him through the portal to face justice. Seemed like too much of a departure from the Coulson character to me.

While I've heard that the guy who plays Ward is a really nice guy and such, and I would hate to see him "out of a job", I'm glad that the "end of the road" is near when it comes to Ward on the show. The writers have suffered trying to figure out what to do with Ward once they had the Hydra reveal in Season 1 and with the way things ended in Season 2, they really wrote them into the corner with regards to him being redeemable.

My thinking is that *somehow* Ward is still "in there" and perhaps after the being inside him wrecks a lot of havoc and the SHIELD / Secret Warriors Team are unable to defeat it, Ward somehow reasserts himself so that the being (and the host, i.e. Ward) can be destroyed. Almost like an Anakin/Vader kind of redemption - he's done a lot of bad stuff, but in the end, his better nature won out and he was instrumental in defeating an even greater evil. Would be a nice, dignified way for an original cast member to exit the series.

Pete - you might have missed Jeff's earlier note on this.  Looks like you have to put in the assortment #, not the individual item number or UPC.

Brickseek won't work unless you have the inventory # for the case assortment - 46173522.   That works...  but you won't be able to tell if it's Wave 1 or Wave 2 or whatever.  Just tells you that they have some type of Black Series 3.75" figures.   :-\

Of course, results may still vary.  I was at Walmart last night and they show 27 items in stock, but couldn't find them on the floor or in the stockroom.   :o

Thanks! Yeah - I knew about that number - but when I try it, it still tells me 0 in stock in stores where I know there are multiples of Luke, Vader, Chewie - and the in the case of one store, a lone ANH Celebration Leia still hanging on the pegs. So, it's definitely a mixed bag of success.

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" 'Armor Up' Assortment
« on: December 9, 2015, 12:55 PM »
Mine just pulled out of the main armor-up assembly.  There is a little tab that is hanging off the back of the helmet to slot it back in if you want.  Maybe it was supposed to be glued in there, but on mine it just popped off with minimal effort.

Ok thanks - I'll give it another try - I have two of the Armor Up Poe Dameron figures opened up - I got the 2nd so I could display him w/o the armor on - so if I "break" the spare set of armor I have it wouldn't be the end of the world....

I got mine for $25 each shipped as well. Seller wanted more than $25, but since I was getting 4 of them was willing to come down on the price a bit...

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" 'Armor Up' Assortment
« on: December 9, 2015, 11:53 AM »
Didn't have a lot of time to compare the two figures but they do seem to be the same sculpt - I took one of the three Jungle Assortment Captain Phasma figures I have, removed the cape and the 2nd armor fit just fine.

Did see if the life-support box on the Poe Dameron figure that came with the X-Wing would detach easily and unfortunately, in that release of the figure, the part is glued in place - so putting the "spare" armor on that figure isn't an option unfortunately.

I got around to opening it last night and in reality, the "clip on armor" is a pretty complex item.  I had assumed it was a single piece of plastic with paint aps, but it's actually more than that.  There are a couple different parts on a clip-on harness thing and in Poe's case, the helmet is removable from the rest so he can wear it separate if you want. 

@Jeff - I could not see a way to remove the Helmet from the rest of the pieces that make up the complete "armor-up" piece - did you have to completely disassemble it to detach the helmet?
