I actually preordered a BUNCH of stuff the other day, and I'm hoping the February preorders come through soon so I can bundle it. I figure I'll wait a few weeks and see what happens before finally shipping it out.

The Wookiee Arcade / GOG.com Going Nuts Releasing Star Wars Games
« Last post by Jesse James on January 21, 2015, 12:48 AM »
My dreams are coming true!

First GOG.com released X-Wing and TIE Fighter...  Now?  Oh my!

GOG released KOTOR II, Battlefront II, Galactic Battlegrounds, X-Wing Vs. TIE Fighter, and my favorites...

Dark Forces, and X-Wing: Alliance too!

Yes, two of the ULTIMATE storylines in Star Wars EU, ever IMHO, are now simple downloadable games that'll play on modern machines.

To boot?  X-Wing: Alliance may damn well be moddable so if you have a fast rig, check out X-Wing: Alliance Upgrade...  they've made insanely detailed ops for the game for YEARS (since its release), and can make Alliance look like it was made yesterday visually.

Your PC will need to be beefy to run Alliance Upgrade downloads but I'm guessing they're already making sure it's compatible and everything works.  They can take the game from dated looking, to something you'd see on any modern console (or better).  Their work is professional to say the least.

Another exclusive, this one for the Taiwan Toy Show... 

A Sol Commander Desserter, who sports a rifle w/sling, and a tattered cloak and stuff, and belt to hold it on.  An awesome little unique accessory set for an existing figure.  Like Red Face for the last show, I'm thoroughly bummed I can't own one.  :'(

I wish I had better overseas contacts to pester for this.  >:(

... or the political BS. They are just entertainers. They are no better than the Court Jester entertaining the King and should never be taken seriously on any issue.

Still trying to collect Star Wars. Still somewhat successful, except for not being able to find Doallyn. I cherry pick the 6" guys, but after seeing how Hasbro cheaped out on Vader and Yoda, I might stop with those.

GI Joe- Hasbro just appointed a new brand manager for this line, and in an interview with the Club, started talking about figures and vehicles (!) but we'll have to wait and see. If it turns out to be 2.5" stuff like the Avengers/Marvel stuff, there could be a lot of incredibly disappointed collectors.

Transformers- The rumors for stuff this year will make this interesting. There's a $150 Devastator in TRU computers, for starters...

MOTUC- I've cherry picked for years now, and will continue to do so until the end. There's supposed to be a "huge" announcement at Toy Fair, and I'm left wondering what it could be.

The end of 2014 and now into 2015 saw the end of most of my collecting habits. I have stopped everything (except MOTUC, and this line am tired of it) and am focusing on Hot Toys Star Wars and Marvel figures.

And really, they need to get over themselves and what they do.  They're entertainers.  They aren't curing cancer.

Amen to that!  My wife hates award shows because she can't stand all of the presenters and recipients gushing over how 'brilliant' and 'phenomenal' they all are...
