The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 2018 SDCC
« on: Today at 02:05 AM »
At least the answer was honest haha.  I'm glad TVC Han is that Han though, really.  One of my most anticipated figures in that line coming up.  I just wish we were getting ALL the other mains in that line as well.

I'd like to take a moment again, as always, to thank Darth_Anton (Or "Ant" as I've come to call him!) for helping us again with coverage of the show.  SDCC is a show too complex, far, and probably too overwhelming for someone like me to attend.  It's just a show I know I won't ever be able to attend, and every year we're helped out tremendously by Anthony, who is there on his dime, his time, and with his family to boot.  We've been very lucky to have someone willing to act on our behalf out there for us, and always do it professionally and with real enthusiasm to boot.  I'd be drained I think, doing a fraction of what he does while he's there, haha.

The show is made increasingly difficult to go to every year as well, so that's another thing to remember.  It really is a lot of hoops to jump through just to get into it these days it seems.  Not to mention tracking down exclusives and stuff!  Ant's always offering to do any/everything he can.  I'm really happy to have gotten to know him and his family a little better through covering the shows and being in contact like we are.  I live vicariously through him, haha.

He's there live-texting to me information from Hasbro, sending pictures, details...  He really is doing a lot, so thanks again to him (and his family) for giving up their time and helping us as much as they do.  He was on his way home last I spoke to him and was still going to be uploading more pictures for me later too.  Just fantastic work, as always from him. Thanks man!

Is he TBA because he's a repack they're waiting to see they need, or is he TBA because he's a repack they didn't want pitchforks over at the show? 

Or is he new?  Hmmmmm....

Only gripe...  shoulda given him that vintage blaster sculpt they did.

Nickels back are good...  Nickelback is not.

I like that Chopper seemed to get the bells and whistles.

Rio Durant deserves a SA 4" figure too.  Love that little dude.

Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Force Link 2.0 TIE Fighter
« on: July 21, 2018, 07:03 PM »
I know there's a ton of bitching about this TIE Fighter when they're releasing the TVC one at the same time (and people then bitching the TVC one isn't the Heavy TIE, and so on and so forth and screw collecting sometimes), but I like this and the general idea of a smaller wing TIE like the Rebels toon showed.  Was that "how they were" at that time or were they full size?  Depends I guess on POV and licensed product because other licensed stuff from Rebels shows basically just a regular TIE Fighter (big wings) and the cartoon was artistic license or whatever, but either way I figure why not a smaller squatter winged fighter variant at some point?  I'm in on this.

L3 and Tobias are my favs...  I really think Tobias looks great though.  Val looks good too but not as nice as her 6" figure looks.  I really loved Solo and the characters so I'm glad to see Hasbro step up to get them ALL made at least.  I wish this was one multi-pack to ease finding them all.

Solo / Re: Walmart Solo 3.75" Kessel Playset with Han Solo

I like this set a lot more than the Vandor set.  The Vandor set though makes me wish I hadn't bought Chewbacca individually now haha.  But this set, I gotta have this one.  It looks easier to display more in it.  More iconic of the overall film too in a way.  I really want this one.

These are definitely interesting, but I can already guess the playset crowd will be complaining.  They make a nice simple display though for your collection.  I like 'em.

Thanks Muftak.  It is appreciated. :)

Hasbro didn't drop a lot of bombs and stuff but there is some cool in there for sure. 

6" really had the most cool to it.  5POA had the cool reveal of all the Solo mains though, and while I kinda loathe 5POA, I do enjoy at least having the mains done for a film if I know I basically can't count on them being done in TVC.

I wish TVC had a little more to it, but I get that they have to hold off for other shows too.  The Q&A part about how they're adjusting to fewer (how?) waves and more new is interesting.

First Image Gallery (Hasbro) Update For The Day

There will be more!

Ignore the lack of thumbnails for now and just surprise yourselves as you browse haha.  I have to get them uploaded but didn't want to delay getting pictures up any longer.

More galleries of other places and things inbound, and more Hasbro pics for later in the day now too.

I'm in on all of them.  Of course, I'd prefer and would've bought them all 2-3x over if they were TVC, but I'll take what I can get I guess.  :(

I think that kessel dude up there is part of the playset, not a different figure.  Looks to be the same character as is in the 2-pack with Lando.

As much as I want the new guys, I really want that Scarriff Trooper in bulk haha.

Most new figs do seem to sport the thigh swivel.  New ones do anyway.

Revan, while cool, is a highly underarticulated figure comparably speaking.  Kinda bummed he didn't get an upgrade honestly.  I should probably sell my extra one now. :P
