Conventions / Re: Star Wars Celebration Europe II
« on: July 28, 2013, 01:56 PM »
Would really love the inside scoop on what is going on.  At least if I understood the dynamics I could let go of the disappointment.  Hasbro has been underwhelming for three years now.

Funny how'd I'd take 15 minutes on Fighter Pods over AB any day

I am expecting an announcement at CEII as to the timing of the next US based Celebration.  I am guessing it will be back in Orlando, especially with the Disney connection.  Lots of developments will occur by Summer 2014, including the lead up to Rebels.  So I plan to go, schedule willing.

Conventions / Celebration Europe II: Messe Essen

Guessing no one is going to this one since the topic has not been created.  Is anyone from the Board going? 

I am hoping for an announcement for Celebration VII.  I imagine it will be next year in Orlando.  I can now imagine it alternating between Orlando and Anaheim with the Disney purchase.

Jeff, I would like the shadow trooper, all the deluxe figs, the bomb squad trooper and $50 worth of the $2 figs - covering all major characters and troopers.  I will put a list together later today.  These are for my four year old nephew who just loves SW

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Avengers (and sequels)

This will be interesting to see.  Both of their power sets are pretty tricky to show live.  Quicksilver's superspeed has been done before, but not very well IMO.  Making him race while everyone else is moving at normal speed could look silly.  And Wanda's hex powers of probability are hard enough to explain to people, let alone show on the big screen.  I'd be concerned that the average Joe who doesnt know her wont really get her powers.

She'll also offer fanboy eye candy.

Got preview tix to IM3 for Wed evening.  My son is more excited than I.

TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Six?

With a daughter who went through a fairy phase, I can say that Disney did a decent job with the direct to video Tinkerbell movies.  If it is not an online deal with Netflix, I think they can pull it off.  I have t least five big storylines I'd like to see wrapped up a bit more

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Rumor: No more 3D Prequel Releases?
« on: January 29, 2013, 12:15 AM »
I'll be among the first ones to say that TPM 3D was underwhelming.  But I loved taking my son and his friends to see it on the big screen.  And the footage from Ep 2 and 3 looked pretty good.  $43,456,382 was the gross for TPM, not terrible given all the factors.  But it was promoted heavily and the cost of the release had to be high.

I feel for Hasbro if they have been left out of the loop. And that takes a lot for me to say.

2013 Droid Factory = Cancelled / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = Dead
« on: January 11, 2013, 12:09 AM »
As I looked through my local Target's reset, it made me think about how bad a year Hasbro had last year in particular for boys toys.  Kre-o has been rotting for two years to the point where I see no shelf space dedicated at Target.  Spider-Man sucked for them.  Star Wars had distribution problems up the ying yang.  TPM did not take off, Battleship bombed, GI JOE got bumped.  Add it together and it is no wonder if the 3D releases and Disney just pushed the uncertainty beyond acceptable risk.

2013 Droid Factory = Cancelled / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = Dead
« on: January 7, 2013, 07:10 PM »
What I find in the release of this statement is that prices will be going up regardless. I don't think there has been a time where Hasbro has said that they were doing things to keep the retail cost down and have it not go up anyway.

Yeah, that is my concern too.  I find the price/value piece an odd rationale.  And one that just does not ring true to me.  Maybe the projected costs for sustaining the line beyond 2 waves could be understood.  I imagine all of these early waves were sunk costs.

Honestly, I just hope they provide a good explanation and an exciting plan moving forward.
