Nice.  Thanks for bringing this back to finish it off. My favorite feature of the last few years.

Stormtroopers are the same height as Vader.  Medicom, again WTH? Swing and miss.

Well here is a map from their website:  http://www.1919rootbeer.com/availability/

Or you could possibly find a website like this that prices pop like single malt scotch.  http://www.sodafinder.com/collections/all/01regular (sorry they don't stock 1919).

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2

Finally was able to find Boba at local retail today.  After all that wait, figure did not live up to expectations, don't get me wrong, still a very good figure but did not blow me away.  He's got some real posability issues with his weapon. When I got the Sandtrooper, it totally blew me away, even though it had some minor paint issues, I was totally stoked to make those quick fixes to let the figure shine.  Don't know what I could do to improve Boba.  With that said, I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on some Stormtroopers at some point.

If you are looking to unload a Stormtrooper with a "defective paint job,"  I'd be happy to take it off your hands.

Yeah if it gets delivered to the wrong address it will still show as delivered.  What you need to do is request a POD (proof of Delivery), if a signature was required, and it wasn't you that signed for it, you can say so.  Otherwise,  it goes back to the driver's word on what happened.

Beautiful.  Looks perfect to me.  Shut up and take my money.

***Edit*** Where are the Accessories?  Would have liked to have seen them being held in the figs hand.  Even still looks great.  Can't wait.

From what I've heard the Black Pauldron Sandtrooper is a straight repaint with the  same accessories.  The funny thing is the colored part of the pauldron was an insert and the black ones were just missing them.  The original pauldron has the insert and has been sculpted correctly for a colored pauldron, but not for the black one. 

Darth Vader and Luke look good compared to 3 3/4" but compared to the high end 12" lack a good deal of realism as to be expected.  I am very interested to see them in person.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Darth Malgus - an Old Republic Vader?
« on: February 13, 2014, 10:14 AM »
Whenever I see Darth Malgus, I can't help but see his mouthpiece being made from a repurposed protective cup in the long ILM tradition of using existing earth objects in new ways, eg. 2-1B's microphone mouth, the camera flash rod light saber hilts, etc.  Seriously how many kids has this character caused to run around with a jock stap on their head breathing in their older brother's junk funk?

That sounds great.  I would find it immensely amusing if Disney went back and undid George's irritating revisionist improvements and tweaks.  Clone voice Boba, scrap the SE Max Rebo band, Darth's Noooooo, etc.

Shouldn't expect any better with Filloni involved.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Repair? 6 inch Boba Fett Arm
« on: January 5, 2014, 09:07 AM »
If you really want to go the repair route rather than sending it back to Hasbro for replacement, I would suggest you go to your local hobby store and get a pin vice hand drill with copper or brass wire and do what is called pin the joint when you glue it back together.  Plenty of tutorials on Youtube.

Glass half full: Awful headsculpt and absolutely no interest in the character incarnation/figure aside, the inclusion of soft goods is a nice indicator of what we can expect from future figs in the line.

I am sure we already played this game before, but since everyone else is popping them out there I want to play too.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 1

I found one of the Sandtroopers at Wal-Mart the other day after weeks of fruitless checking and months of waiting.  What I immediately noticed was the odd pink stains on the armour.  This is because they used a reddish brown wash and as it is a mass produced factory job, it pooled in the deepest recesses creating these unsightly pink stains, under the eyes, on the sides of the mouth and right in the middle of the chest as elsewhere.  No problem for me as I'm now quite familiar with the ways of weathering my own Sandtroopers.  Rather than using Detol or brake fluid to strip off the wash and start from scratch, I decided to cover it up with more weathering, because it is such a rad figure I couldn't wait to get it up to snuff.
I got him all weathered up and he's posed nicely on the shelf.  Painted the small details that you can forgive a factory paint job for leaving off, as well as the pauldron a nice shade of weathered white.  My 3 year old daughter comes and grabs him off the shelf.  She says, "This guy's really dirty!  Look how dirty he is.  He needs a bath to clean him up!  Can we give him a bath to make him clean and white daddy?'
I explain to her that he is supposed to be dirty, because he's a dirty trooper.  Obviously, she is used to seeing my hordes of brilliant white Stormtroopers and want him to fit right in.  Then she notices the ammo pouches.  "Look daddy, he has a purse!"
Kids are too much.
