The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2015

That's why I thought the Ghost would come out sometime this year.  Remember the BMF Falcon and AT-TE showed up at the same the Summer of a non-movie year.  I thought we could see the Ghost sometime this summer.  It would've been a good way to whet the appetites of collectors and fans of the show.

Good to see Kingsmen is doing well.  The comic it's based on is quite good.  And I hear they stayed pretty faithful to it.  Even included the cameo of a particular celebrity (which they've kept under wraps through all the promos).  When I heard they were doing the movie I was like "No way they're going to do that to him..." but when I saw he agreed to appear in the film I was like "Maybe these guys actually got some balls after all."

Love the comic, can't wait to see the movie, although I think they took a little liberty with the cameo you speak of.

It wouldn't surprise me if Disney is making Hasbro keep a tight lid on things.  Honestly, I think it will be more like November before we see anything for Episode VII in stores.  Remember it was late April 1999 before Episode I stuff was in stores.  I might be a bit off with timing this time around since this is the first time we're seeing a new movie not premier in May, but it wouldn't surprise me either.  If we go by my timeline, the first we'd see of anything would be SDCC, but there will most likely be some teases at Celebration VII.

It does bother me that there's no Rebels items at Toy Fair.  I figured that there would be a BMF style Ghost hitting shelves at some point and this year would be the time to do it.  Next year will most likely be dedicated to Episode VII figures, ships and the like, so if we're ever to get the Ghost, now would be the best time for it to sell.

I think they did a decent job on the Phantom.  It's pretty well built and at least the figures fit in it.  ( I have two Millenium Falcons that I can't say that about).

I'll get one for my four-year-old.  I may pick up one for myself to put next to my vintage version.

I think the best stuff for this line will be at SDCC when they unveil Episode VII figures.

Wow.  Last night's episode was a little gruesome.  Luckily, my four-year old didn't realize the inquisitor decapitated those two officers.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Storing your Loose Figs

My figures are stored/displayed in curio cabinets/shelving units. Collections are to be displayed not stored away unless you are moving. If you are going to store figures & what not for a long long time then you should not be collecting... My figures are on figure bases in real cabinets & can be seen 24/7 not $55. plus to hide them away to rot IMHO!

Thanks for letting me know I shouldn't be collecting.

Just drop it all over at my place then.  :D

I feel like I'm part of an ad.

The series has me wondering more and more if the crew of the Ghost is going to become more deeply involved with the Alliance.  They're basically passing themselves off as a freighter crew that regularly gets involved in "Imperial entanglements".  But from the episode with the droids to their rendezvous with the blockade runner, it looks as though "Fulcrum" may actually be Bail Organa.  He was overtly shown in the episode with Threepio and R2.  And when the crew of the Ghost handed over Seebo, the ship they docked with looked like the same blockade runner from the episode with the droids. 

Part of me feels the Corellian Corvette was something to throw us off...  Just a suspicion.  Then again I could see the show not really being that clever, too, and just making it Bail.

I think Fulcrum is definitely Bail Organa.  It's easy to extrapolate that after C-3PO and R2-D2's encounter with them, he learned a great deal about what they were like and started feeding Hera intelligence.  At this point in time, the Rebel Alliance is still gathering.  They haven't even gained their first major victory yet.

I have a display case in my collection room, otherwise they are stored in one of two carrying cases provided by Kenner.  One looks like Darth Vader while the other looks like C-3PO.   ;D

Power of the Force 2 / Re: POTF2 Recent Purchases

Why the interest in POTF2 figures?  Granted some are good sculpts, but a lot of figures have been greatly improved over the last 20 years.

Are you guys just filling holes?

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL

I'm sort of glad that the main movies will only be two years apart.

I think they could possibly missing a lot of opportunities with the stand alone movies.  How about a movie on how the rebels stole the Death Star plans, or something from back in the Old Republic?  There's a lot of potential there.

Thanks!  I found their website and will check them out!

Vintage Kenner / Wow!

Vintage Palitoy carded Boba Fett fetches $27,000 at auction!

I have to admit, I don't think I ever saw a carded Boba Fett as a kid...we all got ours through the mail-a-way!
