The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors
« Last post by Nicklab on August 21, 2016, 11:28 AM »
We have a new rumor about a 6" Black Series online exclusive.  It's reportedly going to be a REVENGE OF THE SITH Clone Trooper 4-pack, and will retail for $99.99.

Please pardon the quote for the smarmy commentary from JTA:

Quote
(We know who the vendor is rumored to be, but we're deciding to keep it anonymous at the moment as to not steal their thunder should this rumor pan out.) Apparently this set will be packaged the same way as Amazon's Trooper 4-Pack with and will include "battle damage" paint applications. What's more, this set looks to be based on clones from Revenge Of The Sith and this might be called out on the packaging. (Could this be a set that includes a Shock Trooper, 501st Legion Trooper, 212th Attack Battalion Trooper and a 41st Elite Corps Trooper?) The set is also rumored to be $99.99. We've also learned that orders will go up for pre-sale in October and supposedly be shipped out late October thru the holidays. As with any rumor we post, please take with a grain of salt until never confirmed by Hasbro.

IIRC, when Adam Pawlus was making the rounds to pump up anticipation of EE's astromech 6-pack exclusive, he also teased another upcoming exclusive multipack.  I get the sense that this may be just what Adam was talking about.  As for the specific Clone unit markings?  I think JTA is speculating, although those particular Clone units are some of the most high profile to choose from.

On a related note, has anyone bought the Star Wars Blueprints Classic Deathstar Deluxe Pack Building Kit?  I've seen it on Amazon and I saw it in TRU yesterday.  And since I'm now in the process of working on my collection room I'm thinking of possibly getting this piece for a ROTJ Throne Room duel diorama.

....Just without the ridiculous looking cardboard figures.   ;D

Looks like BBTS has the new 3.75" Falcon from CIVIL WAR up for pre-order.  And it looks pretty cool!



I picked this up at TRU yesterday.  It's priced at $19.99 there and I had some rewards $$$, so it only cost me $16 after tax.  It looks pretty cool in person.  Much better than the WINTER SOLDIER version of Falcon, definitely.

The trick with increased shielding is the increased mass of the spacecraft.  Launch operations and general propulsion are intrinsically tied to the mass of the spacecraft.  A magnetic shield may be less massive than shield plating with a traditional material like lead, but could potentially interfere with onboard instrumentation. 

The plan we came up with was to have a shielded room where the astronauts could retreat to in times of increased activity.

Finally picked up FN Stormtrooper since he was 30% off at the Disneystore. Looking forward to getting something new.  :)

For anyone else ordering, be sure to play around with different options for shipping. 

1 x Wave One Starter Pack = $9.95
2 x Wave One Starter Pack = $27   :o
2 x Wave One Starter Pack & 1x ACS 2pk = $27  (no change vs. above)
2 x Wave One Starter Pack & 2x ACS 2pk = $45   :o
1 x ACS 2pk = $4

If I had ordered my 2x Starters and the ACS 2pk all as individual orders, it would only cost $24 to ship in three packages vs. conveniently grouping them together for $3 more.  I sent their CS a head's up, so hopefully they're getting this fixed.  They also kindly offered to include free shipping on the second ACS 2-pack I was hoping to buy, so that got me back to about what it would have cost to ship each item separately.
