My Ree Yees and Doallyn showed up... They're pretty great, but I don't know what I'm supposed to feel about toys anymore. I dig them but I just have maybe too much other junk in life going on and can't be bothered to care like I used to?
I do care though, and want more stuff, I just don't feel new toy euphoria often anymore I guess.

Saw these at K-Mart tonight which surprised me given there's no shelf space for them in that last reset. Another reset may be afoot there.
I also utilized some TRU coupons this past weekend and picked one up for myself. $15 off was nice.
So far, largely my thoughts are the same. There is as much good as bad to this toy that was ultimately 100% not made for us, so to find such a good level of "This can work" for us is a miracle. Considering basically Hasbro told everyone at Toy Fair to not get their panties in a wad because it's got nothing to do with collectors, it kinda is funny everyone's panties were in a wad. I wasn't even there and got the memo.
That said, customizers can definitely have a field day with it. Next to figures, that's how to enjoy this thing because it really impresses. It lets you know just how massive a ship it is. And how tiny things like the Snowspeeder were/are by comparison. That's where the value is to this.

I'm not a fan of the chest burster either, but the facehugger's nifty. The Microman Aliens actually have a wrapped up Facehugger available that's more realistic though so I may not buy Kane ultimately. The new Hiya Toys have a realistic Facehugger running too... That thing may be the scariest aspect of aliens.
The Ripley in Space Suit I may nab. She'll look cool with the Kane figure. Wish I had the others that were at SDCC. The color variety looks good, and that figure (articulation aside) looks sharp just chilling with Star Wars guys for some reason.
