Vintage Kenner / Plastic Galaxy
« Last post by Master_Phruby on January 13, 2017, 09:12 AM »
Last night I watched on Amazon a documentary called Plastic Galaxy. It about the creation of the original Star Wars vintage line of toys. They talk about the origins of Kenner and how they got the license. Lots of talk from toy designers and some pictures of prototypes that we never got. They go all the way up to the creation of the POTF2 line. Good hour long documentary about our favorite toys.

And the Switch presales start tomorrow at Nintendo's NYC store (no word on when or if they will be up for preorder at Amazon or Gamestop). It should be a nightmare.

I picked up a NES Classic Mini a couple weeks before Christmas.I've been searching brickpicker for a second controller every day since. Zero quantity anywhere, ever. I don't understand

It looks like the clearances are here for TFA 3.75" basic figures.  At a local TRU these are now marked down to $4.99 each.  I was tempted to pick up some FO Snowtroopers, but I'm going to wait and see if we might get an SA version at some point. 

Target was a little weird though.  I saw some Atsy figures marked down to $2.90 each.  I wanted to pick up another Resistance Rey, so I scanned that on the price check station.  Lo and behold, the Jungle/Space assortment scans at $7.96 each.  It all came across as a bit random.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 4

Looks like a decent figure. Hopefully custom paint apps can fix what appears to be a good sculpt, and hopefully the head fits on other Imperial Officer SA figures easily.

Glad to see this new image of the upcoming Galen Erso (Eadu) figure.  Thanks for posting it, Jayson!  And I'm glad to see a Mouse Droid thrown in there, too.

Here is better shot of were it will be located. It's like someone landed the upper part of Galaxy Quest in the park.

I agree.  I think he's come along way from the Cheers bartender.  My only reservation is that I prefer most characters to be somewhat unknown, so I don't bring some notion of a previous character to what I see in SW.

I like a lot of what Woody Harrelson has been doing over his career.  His role on True Detective alone was fantastic.  I'm interested to see what he's going to bring to this project.
