The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILER FREE)
« on: November 13, 2015, 06:17 PM »
I've seen all the trailers and TV spots so far and except for one thing in the international trailer (but seriously, we knew something was going on there anyway), I have no real details about the plot.

I do know there's going to be one hell of a flight through Jakku with the Falcon and some TIE fighters!  :D

I haven't purchased this falcon yet, but from what I've seen of it (pictures online and seeing it at TRU) it's a nice toy.  My 5 year old would probably love this thing.  It's designed as a toy for kids and that's 100% alright!

That being said, we have proven over the past 20 years that there is a market for collector quality, more screen accurate and detailed action figures and vehicles.  Something that Hasbro seems to be actively ignoring.

Link to the FISD forums.  There are a lot of good threads about building armor's going to prove to be a great resource as I've never done this before either!  It's also where I got a line on some boots.

Anovos Shadow Trooper build part 1

Part 2

Hey Dave.  I ordered the Stormtrooper kit as well for $350 and the reason the price was so low on that at first was to not only generate buzz, but to generate cash in order to start the production.  They tiered the pricing of the kits (and full ensemble) and staged it up to $650 for the kit if you were to purchase today.  The vast number of kits that they were able to get pre-orders for allowed them to get some seriously high grade plastics, so these costumes should look fantastic!

I did a lot of research into Anovos before I purchased and a lot of their folks are from Sideshow and are members of the RPF, so they are really trying to put out high quality items.  There's a youtube video where they talk about having to go out and make the wool for the Imperial officer's uniforms and hats because the same material wasn't made anymore.  I would also recommend you check out the forums on FISD for more info on the Stormtrooper kit, they have a tread dedicated to it and the 501st are true experts on this.

Bottom line, I'm really excited to see these kits when they start shipping next month.

So...are we going with Glenn is still alive?

I'm thinking he got a save from Jesus at this point.

I picked up one of the Chewbacca's tonight and noticed that all of the Darth Vaders were gone.  Looks like he's still a good seller.

These last two have possible spoiled something.  Not exactly the how of it, but the fact about something.

Chewie's had a lot of moments in his appearances, but this has me cheering and I don't yet know the context.

I know, me too.  It definitely seems like a gotcha moment for the bad guys!

It's fine if I've been wrong in thinking they are solar panels...that's just what me and my friends always thought they were.  Coming from that perspective with was hard to turn off the engineer in me.

Radiators would make a lot more sense to be honest.

I had to watch that thing three times to figure out Chewie's hitting a detonator!

The more I see, the more excited I'm getting for this movie!

Never underestimate the pettiness of some people.

Concerning the Amazon seller....I would report them to Amazon.  I was getting materials for my shadow box and found an item with ridiculously high shipping rates which I didn't notice until after I had purchased.  I told amazon about it, and although they said they couldn't do much about it, they gave me a refund on a couple of items that I had purchased through Amazon.

As far as the make an offer portion of ebay....I don't think I've ever had on accepted and I've been pretty reasonable in my offers.

LOL, who the hell is Heath?!?

I don't bother to learn the Redshirts' names on this show until they've lasted at least 10 episodes or so. Nicknames are way more fun...ala Hardwick's "Porch Dick".

I would guess he is the angry Glasses dude with Michonne? You guys are probably right...that makes more sense because we already know that bunch got to the gate.

Already answered, but thanks for the laugh!

Like Jesse said, Heath is pretty prominent in the comics.  He's well cast in the show!

Great update!  I hope you get it resolved soon and without much hassle.  I also hope that the guy who has it now doesn't trash it before you can get it back.

Up for pre-order now!

It's a bit pricey (seeing as I was able to get a stormtrooper set of armor for about $200 less), but from what I've seen so far, they're quality is top notch!
