I know, :D did you check out Alayosha's corner. He has some great human sculpts, and man he has alot of gear. Those guys are the best.

You know, Those Cheap Big Lots figures make great fodder too.  I made a custom bounty hunter just plain out of that.

I thought we'd see news of Mace's Squadron in the Fodder Alert thread sooner than this!

There's no way this will be the only time we see the airborne mold, but I suspect this set will still sell better than most just b/c of the new Clone.

And the custom possibilities.... ooooooooooh. :)

Call me crazy but I think when this comes out, it will be great for making a custom binary loadlifter droid.

Grabbed what may be some decent diorama fodder over the weekend.  Got some of the Alien VS Predator sets with the intent of using the set pieces for a Yavin IV duel scene.  The blister carded pieces were on clearance for $7.98 each, but the real score was the Birth of the Hybrid box set for a whopping $.98!

Chewie,
What is that? What size it that stuff? I think I found my engine for my swoop. Cool find.

Hope you got one preordered, Chewie! Nice catch!

Looks like the new GI Joe SIGMA 6 stuff...... sold out in pre-orders at BigBad.... what scale is that in again? 2.5" figures?

Still, looks like some really cool vehicles. I'd LOVE to see them do this in 1:18 (3.75") scale! ;D:

That stuff is Sigma 6 line of smaller scale? Looks awesome. I might have to see if I can get some of that and come upi with in customs.

You mean like G.I.Joes are supposed to be. ;) ;D What the hell were they smoking when they decided to dump the 3 3/4 line in favor of an 8 in line in the first place. ???

And then dump the 8 in line a year later in favor of a 2 1/2 in line? ??? ???

It doesnt make any damn sense at all.

I can't agree more. I would if they plan to do some of these items in the 3 3/4th line?

Sheesh they need to just stick with the 1/18 scale line. Does anyone else have the problem when when you go to a walmart all you find is the 8 inch guys but when you got to TRU they've got the 1/18 scale guys? Is that common? Wish they'd distribute everything to all the stores lol.

So yea, Chewie I think you could turn that one robot into a loadlifter. I'd like to see it if you do.

Yup, same thing here.

Me too. Unfortunately, it looks like it's not the big H's fault. I think it's what the stores ask for.  :P
