Collect All 92! / Re: Biker Scout
« on: May 31, 2012, 03:59 PM »
This was my first army builder as a kid.  I had three of these dudes, but only ever had one Snowie and one Stormie.  I even had 3 bikes too.

Well FFG finally are talking like they will actually get the X-Wing game out this summer, which is good because for the longest time they weren't saying anything when the 1st quarter came and went.  They are also planning four single ship expansions (Y-Wing, X-Wing, Tie and Tie Advanced) for this fall at $15 a pop.  This is going to be a unnecessarily pricey game.  I hope it is decent.

Pretty cool set up.  I love Shipwreck up on top doing some maintenance.  I guess he's used to working on humungous toys, having been stationed on the USS Flagg for the last 25 years.  :P

I've said this a million times before so probably have posted it here too, but I was watching some ANH, Empire and Return this weekend on Spike and I ask again "When will they make the drug/machine/whatever that allows you to temporarily lose a certain memory for a short period of time?"

I want to hear "I'm your father" or see Vader grab the Emperor, etc. for the "first" time again.

Hell, I'd like love to erase the entire prequel trilogy from my memory permanently.

Cool, nice detail on the TIE pilot...didn't notice those differences. What is that Death Star display from? Is that vintage?

Yep.  That is the Death Star Space Station with the trash compactor pulled out.  I'd know it anywhere, I have three (at one time I was trying to make a complete pie of them :P).  It's great for displays.

Love the variant shots!

Got mine a couple of weeks ago.  Definitely everything I hoped it would be.  Previous headsculpt issue was only on the prototype.  My PotJ IG is off to spend retirement in the Barbie house.

The mystique of this piece delivers where the vintage one promised 30 years ago but never could meet the expectations  of the modern collector.

Yeah that's ok George, you don't need to make Indy 5, that's quite alright.

Red Tails looks good though, my hopes are up for this one, can't be as bad as the prequels.  I love anything WWII.

I want to know who Curto has been blowing!  I can't believe Topps gave him another run at the sketch cards and of course his illustrations still suck as hard as ever.  I remember his defense was that he was rushed with a very short time line to produce them  ::) oh yeah...

Nice Bertha picks btw, what a termite!

12" Figures / Re: Medicom 12" Ultimate Unison Han Solo

Wow.  Enterbay does do a very nice job with these.  Very iconic choices so far considering how long it has been between releases.   ANH Luke, RotJ Han.  As long as they are only making "normal" humans I don't think I'll bite until they stop playing it safe and make something different- at their price point I don't that will ever happen.  I think this is going to be a very small line of figures.

Very happy about the vintage collection, but 92 figures and not one Chewbacca? He did appear in 4 out of the 6 films.

Of course there as was a Chewie in the Vintage line.  Chewbacca was one of the original 4 that came in "empty box".


Starting with ships and cards.  Hopefully minis to follow.

Hopefully more shots of this will be released.  The C-3PO RAH is pretty cool, but the neck on this guy is not near accurate.

I know what I'm getting for my birthday this year now.  I can finally retire the old PotJ IG to the Barbie house now.

Edit: the head looks a little off... reconsidering... but did you see the  Boba Fett!!??!!!!
