Other Collectibles / Re: Attakus Dioramas... 3.75" Scale?

Wow! If these weren't 3 3/4", I'd barely give these a second thought, but they are, so now my tenticals are flapping.

Yeah, cost and space are going to be the big concerns. Unless I buy a bigger house, and Hasbro doesn't release any product for 4 months back to back, I'm going to have to admire someone elses. :-[

Yeah, these are looking pretty nice. They're all done on the VOTC level, so These should be worth it.

I was tempted to repurchase the entire Deluxe line today at Target after realizing they're all on sale for $8.49. Alas, I am too lazy to do that and then come back with my old reciepts.

Thanks Jared! I missed that the deluxe were on sale. I'll have to bring in my recent recipts to get the adjustment.

Would anyone have even bothered with these if Target had gotten their original request of having the Target Logo on the chest?

Yesterday morning I was late seeing a full case actully sitting on the shelves. A hot wheels guys and another Star Wars collector who resells to fund his collection got them all.

I don't need anymore, but it still irks me to think about how imposible it will be for some regular Joes to get these.

Wow! Finally a mature discussion about the problem with the case assortments. I really agree with most of what's been said.

Yeah, Hasbro has an excellent resource to gauge what will sell (the collecting community) and they refuse to use it. But, coupled with the fact that when they do give us something we've been begging for, like the Shuttle, it gets handled poorly and doesn't sell, giving Hasbro further reason to ignore us.

I'm all of the opion of what was said earlier, when it all comes down to it, it's the suits with their Harvard business degrees calling the shots, and they don't necessarily know what's happening in the real world.

I honestly think Star Trek really hurt Sci Fi on Tv as a whole.  The writing for that show has never been all that great...even in the original series.


I respectufully dissagree.

I think just the opposite to a certain extent. When Gene was alive, Star Trek was alway challenging and trying to push the envelope. Sure there were a bunch of stinkers in TOS and TNG, but there were episodes so utterly amazing that they have changed the way I think about life. Once Rodenberry past away, the show went down hill becasue it refused to take risks and the show runners began to have internal conflicts which resulted in all the good ones leaving (i.e Moore and Piller.)

The demise of Star Trek was purely political, the wrong people in charge making the wrong decisions and hiring people based on compatability  rather than talent (basically they hired a lot of Rick MacCallums.) Star Trek could still be going strong if Paramount had not left Berman with so much power.

 but I've never heard of a Costco exclusive...  Anyone have some info on that?  I've never heard of those two stores sharing an exclusive , but maybe that was the impression Anthony's under?  Is that the case Anthony, and there's not actually an additional item that none of us are aware of?

I thought Costco and Sams Club were the same company and therefore both got the same exclusives. I guess I'm wrong. :P

Now that I have the Anakin Starfighter, I'm all caught up.

Do the Sam's club/Cosco exclusives count?

Refresh my memory - what are these?

If I'm not mistaken, they're roleplay lightsabers with a #1 Obi-Wan and a #2 Anakin pack in.

All the info we have received thus far from Hasbro indicates that these will only be available as Kohl's exclusives...

Jeff

I've heard this as well now.

Do the Sam's club/Cosco exclusives count? I do not have them.

I have all the others except for the TRU Anakin Starfighter which I have not seen yet.

The timing on this is weird since I just got back from my neighbors funeral. She died the day after her 80th birthday (on mothers day.) One of the songs she had wanted played (and it was) was Bruce Springsteins "My Home Town." The other was a pre-Judi Garland version of "Over The Rainbow."

I myself would freature the song "Undertow" by Genesis. It's a song about standing up tall when things are looking down. It's one of my favorates.

Isn't that always the way? It's like the E1 cinema scenes. The first wave was Jar Jar, then every other set after that was better and harder to find. :P
