Other Toy Lines / Re: Anyone collect other 1970s & 80s toy lines?
« Last post by digktialx on Today at 01:21 AM »
Some nice stuff. I never saw the space stuff that looks very cool. I don't actively collect 70s-80s toys myself since I like the modern releases they've done. I do still have a bunch of those M.A.S.K. vehicles and ONE lone mask guy without a mask. I liked the toy line didn't care for the TV show at all.

Pens look bad...  Just thought I'd throw that out there.  They're beyond hurting, losing Letang and Malkin, but yeah they look bad.  Limping into post season.

Completely forgot about the draft.  Crap...  Now time to see how bad the lineup is this year and what I can salvage moving forward.

Got my HTS Imp Troop Transport, and it is worse than I thought it would be...

As with most vehicles they're putting out, it's essentially a vac-formed piece of plastic with "printed details".  It's comically low quality, to the point of being like a dollar store kind of a vehicle.  So glad I didn't shell out more for it, or shipping.

Some of the details are interesting, and nicely thought out/planned.  Like, for instance, the cargo strap tie-downs and/or air-lift straps on the upper sides.  I dig the thought and am not sure the detail exists on the model in the show, but it's neat that it's there I guess on the toy despite being very poorly done/lacking detail to it.

The hollowness of the interior kills me the most though, and it forces it to basically just seat 3 soldiers...  If it were a tad taller, and a hollow hold (not formed seats) so you could put more guys inside, I'd be more forgiving.

There are little half-round nubs on the bottom that give it enough rise from a surface to imply it hovers, but this is a major fumble where they COULD have included wheels.  Simple little discs snapped into a floor would've made this roll nicely on hard surfaces, and added a ton of play to it.

The top turret simply spins, and has no other movement.  The little ball turrets on the front move side-to-side, and nothing more.

There was more effort put into the stickers, than anything else on the vehicle.  I  find this thing kind of unfixable.  You'd be further ahead starting from scratch, which has been on my drawing table (literally, being designed) since it's just simpler to do that if I wanna be happy with it.  I didn't pay much for it, and that's about the only positive I've taken away from purchasing it.

I stand by the TIE Adv. being the gem of the ships so far for this line.  It's just miles superior to this or the AT-DP.

The first episode is going to be shown at Celebration but when it will be shown on TV/online I haven't heard or when the actual season starts.

Note the start time please: 8:00 CST.  Gotta get Dressel to sleep half an hour earlier.

Because that's worked so well for you in the past  :-* I slept half the day just for this.  The 3peat is happening.

  I wonder though if the leader of the Wolves is the guy that Aaron was talking about with Darryl (Davidson if remember correctly?).  I can't see why they would have "named" him during that part of the discussion if he wasn't going to come back and haunt the Alexandrites.

I though that initially as well, but they seemed to strongly imply the Wolves only learned about the Safe Zone after recovering Aaron's backpack and looking through the photos. I think they said as much on TD. The exiled guy would have known about it all along.

I acknowledge I say this because I'm still hoping that the Wolves are the S@%&#*s. It seemed like the pictures the Wolves guy was looking at were of Rick, etc. So maybe they were going for Davidson (do they ever tell us you know who's last name in the comics?) will be interested to know Alexandria has taken in new people and not that they are now learning of Alexandria all together?

Who was on TD? Now if actors and producers on TD implied the picture thing was the Wolves learning of Alexandria my hopeful theory makes no sense.

I do think Davidson is going to be you know who which obviously changes his character some (hopefully just back story changes). I agree mentioning Davidson makes no sense if you aren't going to bring him back in some way. So the question is are the Wolves w/ him or a different group?

That's tempting.  I might grab 'em if I can find them in the store.  I really just want Iron Man and Widow, so sucks to shell out even $30 just for those two.   :P

If you do find/buy them, I might take Nick Fury off your hands...  maybe even Steve Cap too if you're offering a fair price.  ;)
