The Vintage Collection / Re: TVC Nevarro Cantina Playset
« on: October 26, 2021, 01:50 AM »
The Navarro Cantina is cool to me but lacks the tables/stuff that fills it up as much as the figures themselves haha. 

Jeff, what Nick said was something I was discussing with a friend and it does seem to have a dual way to display it.  Did they talk about that in the presentation Nick?  I missed it cuz I had a lot of things going on.  The one picture of the expanded two sets together the window on the right is clean though.

I enjoy this maybe more than most people are but, for my $, I love it.  I wish it had tables, chairs, and an Eweb cannon and stuff, but the reality is I knew this is about what itíd ultimately be. Iím not disappointed.  Iíd probably have liked a regular stormie more or a flame trooper with maybe a pushed back flame effect woulda been cool. 🤷‍♂️

Yeah you can (or could?) get the stormies there too.  I ordered them but so far no rebs.

I havenít Nick and I keep checking.  They were slow on the stormies too.  Kinda frustrating as Iíd like two more sets. #StillNoHolsters

Love this set.  Goes without saying I suppose. 🤷‍♂️

Local friend drove over into Ohio to get some and got me one.  Iím glad to get Merrick and annoyed at Targetís completely weird rollout on this.

My Tusken wrists were fused iirc.  Paint washesíll do that.  IG11 has some issues too.

Itís all meh to me.  I kinda like retro but I didnít want this much and then to divert to too obscure.  I liked seeing some unmade OT stuff, some mains from these new or older things like the PT maybeÖ not a lot, just some.  Theyíre seemingly ready to milk this hard though.  I prefer good figures to this stuff but I liked the idea of this as a smaller lineÖ I feel it wonít be remaining a smaller line going forward.

Same place mad Lukeís helmet doesnít come off despite the ease of head swapping that figure? 

Same place claiming credit for these droids figures getting made like heís an ďinsiderĒ?

The collectorate definitely has lots of dumb to offer for sure.

Youíre just not looking in the right places for dumb complaining.  Thereís still plenty of it haha.

The only character design in Rebels I completely disliked was Zeb.  If theyíd done the McQ concept of Chewie we got a figure of, Iíd love that look more, but what we got just looked out of place, to me.

Now that said, Iíd love to see all the Rebels in TVC, and Iím in the camp that Hera needs her own design separate of the Rebel Pilot figure.  The overalls and stuff is an awesome look to me, though that pilot is a solid base for a custom project and the head is a no brainer there.  I would just love to see a figure like TBS got in 3.75Ē for her.

I have Kanan TBS and itís really incredible and would also be an awesome 3.75Ē Fig.

The way the Disney+ stories are going Iím thinking it could happen some day, but with this line you just donít know anymore.  Kind of a bummer compared to when this stuff was almost a given and it was the most absurd figures that had the question marks, haha.

Meh...I collect figures that fit into worlds, so I really tend to always skip the gimmick repaints. Sure, Droids is kind of a fun cartoon, but if a figure doesn't look like it's in an actual scene with the figures around it, I'm not interested.

This is where I am too.  Like the gimmicky Marvel R2 worked as a rando R2 deco quite well while the stormtrooper was simply dumb looking.  If this R2 and 3PO work as looking like other droids Iím interested.  The animated Fett worked as a different Mando (as did Marvel Mando figs) so Iím hopeful if they do that again itís the new sculpt.  Iíll grab that happily.

I donít expect anything new from these sets though.  Repaints on repaints on repaints.

Other Collectibles / Re: Hasbro Force FX Lightsabers

I kinda want it too.  I got most of the ones I have on clearance including the OG build a Sabre from RadioShack (itís my fav).  The last I got was a Kylo Ren at Ross and I love it too.  But theyíre definitely space hogs and finding wall space isnít easy for these.  Plus I donít want them stored anywhere outside without heat and AC.  Chromed stuff takes some care to keep it nice.

But that Rey sabre is awfully nice and among the iconic ones Iíd kinda like to have.  Certain ones look good together I think, and hers would look cool with ROTJ Luke and ANH Luke or ROTS Anakin ones, and Kyloís.

If a TVC Hera happened, Iíd flip my wig.  Iím leaning toward more repaints though, and like Jeff, at $50 for a set theyíre needing to really be something else for me to care.
