Other Toy Lines / Re: 2018: What Are You Collecting?
« on: February 19, 2018, 12:45 PM »
Did Toy Fair change anyone's collecting aspirations for the year? I know the Sail Barge, along with the opportunities it may open up, has definitely got me thinking about things. I've slowly been cutting back (and in some cases selling off), the non SW stuff, really only focusing on Marvel Legends outside of that. This is making me take an even harder look at that. If I want to continue and go all-in with this type of Vintage Collection stuff, it may mean focusing almost exclusively on that. That means getting much more selective with "other" lines, or just deciding that it is a good place to be done.

More great reveals for this line this weekend, as usual for this line. Particularly happy to see Cloak and Dagger, a long time want for me, and the new Thing - one of my favorite characters.  A few of the figures did seem kind of like "didn't we just get this?", and I'm not sure how much I care about all the symbiotes outside of Venom and Carnage. Of course, I could just be talking myself out of stuff so I can afford that Sail Barge  ;) The Legends line is tough to keep up with anymore, churning out so much goodness.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors

Lots of good stuff, it is amazing how much that scanning technology improves the look of the human characters. I'm really happy to see the Leia, and definitely the Gamorrean. That character, along with Endor Han and Jedi Luke, were the first figures I bought with my own money in the vintage days, so they always have a special place.

Been thinking about this a lot this morning (and trying to figure out how to afford it), and just how cool this concept could be. Not just for the Barge, which is great, but potential future releases that some have mentioned. You could see a Death Star, Ewok Village, Dagobah, Poe's X-Wing, or even smaller items. It also makes me realize that this program might "force" people to become more and more specialized in their collections. I already don't know where I would put the barge for sure, let alone if we start getting things like this every 18 months or so. It may force things to "OT only", OT Vintage Collection only, etc. the majority of us only have so much room. All that being said, I'm so happy that this excitement is back in the Star Wars line. It seemed like that had been waning a little bit.

Gone today and just looking through things tonight and WOW, this has to be one of Hasbro's best showings in years. So much goodness, and just the shot in the arm the line needed.

Beautiful piece, Hasbro has really brought their a game again. I'd like to get one but will have to see. I'm on the fence about trying to save up for that sail barge instead.

Really like the new Han, and the troopers look great too. Surprised we were shown as much as we were this weekend, seems like Hasbro made a good showing.

It's too bad this first wave is so repack (and common repack) heavy, hope it isn't a problem. I could pick up more Hoth rebels and Stormiest, and maybe a Rey/Kylo to keep carded. Otherwise, in for Snoke.

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2018 TVC Walmart Exclusive Figures
« on: February 17, 2018, 10:55 PM »
WalMart exclusives? Ugh indeed. Still haven't seen the last Black Series wave at our local store. At least it is only a couple to track down though.

I definitely did not expect this news, very cool. I REALLY want to get into this too. I have nowhere to put it, but I don't really care. An all new Original Trilogy era ship done in the BMF style? Right up my alley. I don't know if I can afford it, and I definitely would have to sell something else of significance to offset the cost if I did. So cool though.

These all look pretty amazing I think. They really continue to improve on the faces of these figures, kinda makes me wish they would go back and re-do some of the human characters with that face printing technology they have now. All of these figures look great though. I wonder if we will get a new (or new bandoliered) Chewie here too. I'm all in for these.

Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Force Link 2.0 with Han Solo
« on: February 15, 2018, 05:32 PM »
I actually haven't gotten one of these yet, and I really like that Han figure, so it is a good chance to pick one up.

Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Kessel Run Millennium Falcon
« on: February 15, 2018, 05:31 PM »
Agreed. Many are only going to be happy if it is BMF sized, and I'm afraid that just isn't going to happen anymore. I feel lucky to have been collecting in that time of large, detailed vehicles as the BMF is one of the favorite things I own, if not top of the list. Maybe the return of the Vintage Collection will bring more of that back.

That said, I kind of like this one too. I can appreciate a fun toy, and a new Falcon is always welcome. I'm planning on picking this up, and getting excited for this movie.

Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Basic Figures

I really like the looks of these too, I'm definitely in for the Solo figures. I do hope we get a little more off the bat than three figures, but I think we will. I know there was a 2 pack shown in Germany including Lando, so that's great too. I wonder if we will get a big launch for these? I know it has been rumored, but I know for Rogue One stores kind of put them out whenever around here, unlike the Saga movies.

I didnít end up getting any dinobots yet, but I still look at the vintage ones. Iíd love to get those MP versions, but that line is out of my price range. I have picked up Skug (Slag) from the recent Power if the Prines line, and really like it, so I might try to get the rest of the original Dino crew there.

Speaking of that line, I saw the new Optimus Prime today at Target. I didnít necessarily want to get back into collecting other lines, but I was very tempted by that Prime. It looked to be very well done, it looked cool, and it was pretty good size. Has anyone picked it up yet?
