Several days ago I saw an image from SDCC of a cardback with a Scout Trooper being one of the figures. The card was angled, the resolution wasn't sharp, and I wasn't fully awake. I could have sworn it read Dick Scout Trooper. I immediately thought we were getting a Jason Sudeikis figure from the Mandalorian.

So, yah, no.

But how great would it be if Hasbro immortalized him as that jackass?


Hall of Justice / Funko's 3.75" Suicide Squad

Kinda surprised I haven't see this topic yet. These are on pre-order at several sites. Joker and Harley in their main costume are apparently exclusive to the Funko unboxing and, for now, can be had pretty cheaply on ebay.


Similar to Game of Thrones, the head sculpts look good. We'll see how the actual product turns out.

If nothing else, it's more custom fodder.

Modern Classifieds / mail-away galactic heroes

Kinda last minute.

You guys might remember the Galactic Heroes mail-away that came witth the first wave of Burger King SW promotions last year -- buy $20 worth of Hasbro SW toys between mid-May thru December of '05, postmark before 1/15/06, get a couple of Galactic Heroes figures while supplies last. These were limited to 1 per household.

While cleaning up, I found a few leftover forms. I have enough receipts and UPCs to cover them. I don't want them to go unused, so if you haven't already sent one in, send me your name and address through pm and I'll mail out a form to Hasbro in your name. I'll check my box until 12:30pm pst, today, 01/14/06.

At this stage of the promo, there are no guarantees that you'll receive a pack since it states on the form that quantities are limited. 

Other Toy Lines / Wing Commnder

The movie stinks but I like the toys. Anyone else buy these? Hello? Hello?

The handful of you who picked up some figures or perused the backs at the TRU may recall the low-res images of the 2 fighters, the Rapier and Dralthi. There's a write up and pics of the prototypes here.

Highlights of the article:

- the ships never made it into production (contrary to rumors)

- the ships will be displayed at DragonCon this year (if the article is recent)

- the movie was billed as a kiddie flick so X-Toys decided to initially make toys instead of collectables.

- a detailed 9-inch line for later release was part of the plan

- production of the 3-3/4" figures totaled only 10,000 -- at least that's the way I'm reading the article, though it might have meant 10,000 of each figure. Either way, that sounds like a small run.

- sales of Wild Wild West sucked even more than Wing Commander
