The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" 'Armor Up' Assortment

Also the TIE Pilot is a special forces pilot iirc, basic is just basic black.

+1

There is another Special Forces TIE Pilot that's packed with the TRU Exclusive First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter (battle damaged).  But that pack-in figure has a removable helmet.  The Armor Up version doesn't have that removable helmet and like Jesse said it's the same sculpt as the 3.75" basic figure line offering.

The Armor Up Kylo Ren mixes things up a bit.  But I was a little put off that they would offering that figure up that way and charge more for the un-hooded Kylo Ren and an accessory that had no presence on screen.  And some of the other figures in the line?  I passed on almost all of them except for Kylo Ren and Chewbacca.

The TRU exclusive Armor Up Poe Dameron is basically the same figure as the Black Leader X-Wing pack-in figure, which has a removable helmet.  The only difference is the Armor Up accessories. Overall, I thought those TRU exclusive Armor Up figures were kind of a waste, and I passed on both of them.  It really did remind me of something out of the POTF2 line.

I was definitely surprised by the absence of the droids from the Basic Figure line.  TFA C-3PO is only available in that 2-pack with R2-D2.  And BB-8 was packed in with Teedo and Unkar Plutt's henchman.

Kylo is the only way to get him sans hood but with the mask.  Also his head won't swap to 4"TBS kylo without modding it.

I'm guessing they didn't double dip to "force" you to buy.

Also the TIE Pilot is a special forces pilot iirc, basic is just basic black.

Isn't Stormtrooper Finn different, having a removable chest armor piece?

I'm going by observation I own none of them.

So the chess game begins between two cunning minds capable of great ruthlessness....Thrawn and Chopper!

Having an  AT-DP on a little platform like that seems like not a wise concept.

Imperial officer heavy. Two new (to the series) officers, Pryce (sp?) and Thrawn, plus Tarkin, Kallus, Constantine and that blonde guy later. 

Why was the reclamation station in a planetary atmosphere and not space? So we don't have to use space suit models for the characters? So more Cloud City allusions?

Are Ugnaughts the only alien labour force? They got unions or something?

Somehow the OT Y-Wings are Clone Wars Y-Wings?

Ezra was right, had they just reconned and left, all the Y-Wings would've been scrapped by the time a strike team arrived.

Hondo got his ship, and it didn't cost the Rebellion a dime. Hondo, what a guy.

Kanan's scares aren't that bad. But really, no way for him to get cyber vision? What kind of sci-fi galaxy is this. Also, why does he keep his eyes closed?

Generic spiritual quest for Kanan, but Tom Baker is cool. Not sure why the spider were jerks before, oh, because they are.

Maybe it turns out the Sith Holocron does corrupt people and Kanan will face a big Bendu got bad!

I just cracked open the last of my TFA figures today and had a few questions / observations.

1 - are most of the armor up figures near direct copies of the regular figures?  It appears the only ones that are different are Poe and Chewie.  Am I missing anything significant.

2 - I was surprised at the gaps in the overall figure line.  No regular Chewie, R2-D2, Poe resistance outfit, and Poe pilot without helmet.  I'm probably missing a few, but this ones popped out at me.

Star Wars Dioramas and Displays / Twelfth Parsec "Space Base"

The guys at Twelfth Parsec have unveiled their new "Space Base".




This looks like it might be a prototype.  If they can refine this, it's going to look amazing.  And each room is available for sale separately as well as being available as a complete set.

Odd thrift store find, the build a weapon part from the Resistance Trooper, in a bin of 3 for 25 cents toys.

Great assortment there. It's been a long time for me since a new army builder has been released. I picked up a couple of TFA Stormtroopers, but I'll certainly not be putting in the dedication as I do toward my OT imperials.

Pretty interesting. As with all things, will be interested to see side by sides with their more functional counterparts.

The Striker could be a good alternative for me since I'll be buying more than a few.
