Anyone got an extra $130 laying around?

No, I just bought Capt. Phasma.  ;)  :P

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" Basic Figure Line

Looking at the back of the Flametrooper again - there is definitely tape at the top, possibly holdingtwo parts together.  J-hook there definitely looks like two pieces.  Maybe it does open up for some reason?  Hmmm...

Could be.  I just figured they tried to beef up the J-hook and didn't line it up very well as has been the case in the past.  But it'd be cool if they did open up. 

Even though I'm not buying these, I admit the figures look great and I love the card art of the characters.  Anyone getting rid of the cards?

People are thinking the card opens up as well.  Or is it to keep the hooks from bending?

Opens up?  Interesting.  One other idea on the cardback I saw on twitter was that it's 2 parts glued together with the edge of the bubble tucked under it to help prevent theft or the bubble falling off...  ???

They were wondering about that with Kylo Ren (and we didn't get to see the back of the card).  But upon seeing the others, I'd say it's the second option (the theft/bubble issue).

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)

Poor 3PO. No one can ever find replacement parts that match the rest of his body. He always has to look like some beater car. How hard is it to find gold parts or at least a spray can?

You'd think one of the heroes of the Republic would get some decent parts.  I mean Artoo gets blasted by Vader during the Battle of Yavin and he's all pristine for the awards ceremony.  Who knows what's up with Threepio in the thirty years that he loses an arm and can't get the matching part.  You'd think the Solo/Organa/Skywalker clan would take better care of their family heirloom.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2015

So, are any of the 6" figures (jango, Ahsoka, Farmboy Luke, etc) revealed here going to be released during the September 4th Madness or is that a "Wait and See" answer.  And did they give a release date for these figures?

If I'm not mistaken, I saw the deluxe 6" sets with a clearance tag at TRU for $19 and change yesterday. I will swing by to confirm later this week.

I was just at one and they were full price still... of course, mileage may vary.  ;)

I find it odd that it's called "The Complete Saga.  Aren't they releasing 3 more movies into the Saga (plus stand alones that add to the Saga).  Unless they have Episodes 7, 8 and 9 in it, this isn't anywhere near complete... unless they mean the Complete Lucas Saga.

Nice score, Nick. My area Walgreens only carry the shampoo bottle figures.  No 4", no 6" despite having space for them.

I guess I'll have to wait until September 4th

WalgreensBLOW!!!!111!!! or something or other... 

Seriously though, 9/4 is going to be weird if these places manage not to pee out everything first.  That'll be the big if.  But Walgreens, if they'd never said anything, who'd think to even go there on 9/4?   ::)

Well, we're all getting old enough now that the prescription crowd and SW collectors might be blending into one.

Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines

(Bill and Ted is canceled).

Bogus! :(

Heinous!  Most non-triumphant.

No Firefly Series 2?  I assume ReAction, and not Legacy.  I'd love to buy into the Legacy line of Firefly, but am not going to invest in 5/9ths of the crew/passengers for Funko to cancel the line and not get the Tams, Book or Inara.

Half of me is super annoyed by this and gets where all of you are coming from, and the other half of me thinks to hell with it... it's a COMIC CON exclusive, and if we couldn't get one from our desks a few days later, what grievance to we really have here?

It's not like this figure isn't going to be available in droves when the movie launches, the only real reason to want this is for the packaging.

True, but we haven't seen the likes of 6" Han in Carbonite or Salacious Crumb at retail yet.  It'd be nice if Hasbro would release such exclusives as long as they're in different packaging like how this FO Stormtrooper is at least getting a wide-scale release.  Some other companies do it with their exclusives. 

I guess this is the time where we have to keep checking since they usually add more in the next few days.

Out of stock.

Looks like a buy 1 get 1 50% off character apparel, toys, backpacks, school supplies....
