I ordered one of each.

My Chrome one has joints so loose I can't get it to stand up.  All the other figures I've gotten so far are fine, as is the non-chrome T-800.

Movie Heroes / Saga Legends '12-? / Re: 2013 "Mission Series" Figure 2-Packs

I saw the Yoda/Sidious Missions Series 2-pack for the first time yesterday in Target. His face really is that funky two-tone color close-up. Blech.

Let's fire this mother up!

I bought my first ever Rebels toy tonight...the 20" Ezra Bridger figure. Have been on the fence about the 20" scale, but after seeing this one in person I caved instantly. No sign of Kanan, but they did have the TIE FIghter Pilot, which was super badass. I stashed him away for later. (BTW, not so easy stashing away a 20" action figure)

Bring on the Rebels toys!

The fact he's been done twice is definitely a head-scratcher.

My guess would be that he was originally intended to be part of the new Rancor release and he got cut from that set due to costs - and there was no way the Luke figure was going to get cut.

So instead of throwing away the sculpt, they put him in the Build-a-Droid line with the hopes that him having a droid part would help him sell with the folks looking to complete the droid.

The newer version IS a great looking figure though...

Would definitely love to see them put that kind of effort into a new Yak Face.

The Bullpen / Re: LEGO Makes Theirs Marvel

Decided to hold off on the Rocket Raccoon set from SDCC for a bit - I think the prices on eBay have gotten a tad bit ridiculous ($170+) and are sure to drop off even if it takes a little while.

So instead, I've resumed my efforts to make my Lego Marvel collection as "complete" as possible - so I picked up the following:

Avengers Quinjet Aerial Battle
Avengers Quinjet Mini Polybag
Thor w/Cosmic Cube Polybag
Iron Man vs Fighting Drone Polybag

Eyeing up the Polybag Iron Patriot and Hawkeye sets now - those are a tad bit more expensive on the secondary market...

At some point I'm going to have to bite the bullet and pick up the Wolverine Helicopter Showdown, Hulk Helicarrier Breakout and Spider-man's Doc Ock Ambush sets - all three of which have gone up quite a bit on the secondary market...  :-\

Nice.  Thanks for bringing this back to finish it off. My favorite feature of the last few years.

I actually saw that for pre-order overseas, and I was giddy until....

yeah, the price.  WOW was that price shocking, haha.  It shouldn't be though.  A 7" scale mech from Titanfall + a 7" scaled figure that fits inside, and is every bit as articulated and detailed as the mech is, is probably worth that.  :(

Outta my scale range though, thankfully. :P  If that were 4" I'd have messed my pants, and bought it, and openly wept while eating cereal for dinner for several months.  :-\

I think a more fair comparison for why it probably was unnecessary was the POTF2 figure than the original Vintage figure...  The POTF2 would've sufficed me, personally.  Articulation's appreciated for sure, and the removable hat, but really the POTF2 didn't sell not because the figure was bad, but because the figure was boring.  So this one didn't sell likewise because it was boring, haha.  The fact it was done before just made it even more pointless was all.

Most alien upgrades I'll take all day long though.  And even most humans I'll take.  The Rancor Keeper though, he was really on my "Never care to see again" list.  There are many PT figures in that list now too, haha.

I don't collect these but saw x2 vac metal erminators on the pegs on Saturday.  I believe 2 silver as well.  Looked like a single case.
