The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

My closest store started a waiting list. Management said that there are dozens of names and aren't taking any more.  :-\

At least I've been able to score some Doctor Who figs there.  :)

That'd be great. I just watched the entire trilogy over the weekend for the first time in ages on the 720 blu-ray copies I was given and although they were quite clean, that extra boost in quality would be heaven.

I've been checking stores in my area over the past week plus.  No sign of Proto-Boba or ANY TBS 6" figures.  I get the feeling that these might be creeping out slowly across the country.

That's exactly my impression. Of the two close that I hit up, one put out the shelf tags while the other has not. It's also part of their christmas plan I'm told by a manager, so I'm hoping there will be plenty.

Went looking for these with no luck, but one manager said a lot of people are asking about it.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 5

These are up at HTS, shipping on 9/22.

Thought I'd be a little cool on this one, but I like the set over all. Having a holder for carbonite Han was just surprise and handy bonus. In person, it convinced my buddy who wasn't hot on buying one take my extra.

I picked up the Bikerscout! Very excited. The piece is nearly a bonafide work of art; the figure itself is nearly perfect, it doesn't suffer from the stormtroopers quazi-bowleggness and is beautifully detailed. The is pretty bitchen', however, I wish the handle bars had some articulation, and the exhaust petals not having it's full range of motion is disappointing.

Over all, a great display piece. Very sound and satisfying purchase.

Getting a better look, even I'm thinking of leaving it sit. They'd have me if the paint job on the At-St was different, but it seems to be exactly the same as the K-Mart release.

Thanks for posting those picks of TF.

Got my set a week ago but have been too busy to sit down, open them and check them out. I really can't add anything to the observations already made other than this is winning set for me over all. Adding that Snowtrooper variant is a real huge check on my checklist for most wanted figures. Now, if Hasbro would only make an illustration accurate Snow bikerscout, I could die a happy nerd.

There's no circumstance under which I would pick this up. However, I appreciate it's sleekness and proportional scale to itself.

I love this set, but it makes me want Hasbro to release more speeder bike variants in the 3/75 line.

Loving the At-DP. It's absolutely being incorporated into my Mech fleet, buying two on the onset. Will pick up the Transport for good measure as well.

This thing is such a puzzle. I wasn't quite prepared for how out of scale this was to anything until I saw it in person. It's overwhelming.

I wonder why the timing on so much stuff is timed to hit the shelves during Comic-con? Gonna have to wait to pick this up, but hopeful there will be a decent sale to be had by the time I'm ready.

It's a little weird that this year I was a bit more excited about the 6 inch line than I was about the 3.75, though I don't think I'm going to commit myself to pick everything up in 6 inch like the 3.75. It will be interesting to see how well all those 3.75 clones will do and if it'll help boost 3.75 sales.

OUt of everything shown, the things that gave me that special tingling feel were the At-DP, the troop transport and the 6 inch shadow trooper set.
