Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars Posters
« Last post by Brian on July 24, 2015, 05:47 PM »
Got the Force Awakens teaser poster via that Disney Movie Rewards program last week.  To be honest, I hadn't ever done anything with those "points" until hearing about the poster offer, and they are actually pretty cool.  Between the Marvel, Pixar, and various Disney movies we had picked up anyways, we had plenty of points to get both this poster and the Ant Man movie poster as well - shipped to our house for free.  I'm looking forward more to the first "art" poster that we'll see, but this was still pretty cool.

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens Toy Line - Rumors and Speculation

Was talking to a casual collector friend last night and he reminded me about the handy shopping guide Hasbro made for us in 2008 for the CW Movie Midnight Madness launch.  He asked me if Hasbro had made one for 9/4 yet and I let him know about Disney and the wall of silence we've got this time. 

I had forgotten all about that Hasbro PDF...  maybe Hasbro will surprise us and get us something like that via Hasbro Pulse closer to 9/4?

God, I forgot all about that thing. I probably still have the one printed somewhere all marked up.

Other Collectibles / Re: Disney "Star Wars Elite Series" Die-Cast Figures

There are things like Hasbro's Titanium Series Forged figures... though I would not have called those "highly articulated". 

There was a line of 8" hyper-detail die cast from Japan

At the very high end, you have stuff like Bandai's Perfect Model Chogokin C-3PO.

I think someone in Japan is also doing a new die-cast line... here we go - Metal Collection (Metacolle) Star Wars #01 Darth Vader by Takara Tomy

Lots of stuff out there, mostly overseas though...  it's an interesting concept but usually "highly articulated" and "die cast" don't go well together without some plastic in there too.

I'm not an action figure expert, but are there examples of well done die cast figures out there to know what might even be possible?

This just doesn't sound interesting to me...

Oh, hells yes -

God Gundam 明鏡止水

Every time I start to get annoyed with Hasbro for being dinks and not giving us any 3.75" figure news, I'll just remind myself that Japan is full of toys I want/need...  like Sekihatenkyōken fireball throwing, SUPER HYPER MODE God Gundam here.  So pretty.   ;D

Hopefully the quality is better than their die-cast ships.  The ships look nice, but the "play" features like rotating guns, landing gear, etc are... lacking.  The X-Wing for example looks great, except for the plastic parts, mainly the cannons.  Bent and warped and fragile.  The landing gear on the X-Wing, Snow Speeder and Falcon are all crap.  Still, for $8, they are pretty cool toys and my son loves them.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: Hot Toys 1/6 full Millennium Falcon
« Last post by Jeff on July 24, 2015, 10:30 AM »
The Sixth Scale TIE Fighter was shown at SDCC a couple weeks ago, so they are "old news" I guess.  They kinda got lost in the shuffle with everyone freaking out about Hasbro's 6" scaled TIE.

Most sites are reporting Hot Toys has confirmed this Sixth Scale Falcon is NOT for sale... but there are still rumors floating around that say otherwise (I saw one that said $48k for one! :P).

I've seen this pop up all over social media, but no one has commented on the two TIE's in scale that are flanking this bugger in that later shots.
