The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)
« on: December 31, 2015, 04:24 AM »
Has anyone checked out the "Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens" book yet? There's a really exciting page that shows a concept piece of Force Ghost Anakin whose face is half ROTS Ani and half Vader masked. The caption (by the artist) reads something along the lines of the artist having pitched Force Ghost Anakin to be in TFA, but that he's stuck somewhere between the light and dark sides. I think this might be a cool idea to appear in VIII, especially with a lot of reoccurring rumors that Hayden Christensen was supposedly training again for something Star Wars related.

The Black Series 3.75" / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 3
« on: December 31, 2015, 04:10 AM »
Has anyone had any luck finding this wave or have a spare of Finn, Rey, and/or Finn they'd be willing to sell?

I've stopped collecting 5POA entirely after the first wave and have decided that I will re-enter the game when Hasbro comes back with SA figures. It's really sad for me, because I've usually been adaptable to whatever Hasbro throws our way. 5POA was the final straw, though. With that, I've all in for the new Black Series sub-line, but it's obvious that Hasbro has no intention to let these succeed after Wave 3 (plus, it seems most Wallys aren't even allowed to order more figures past Wave 1).

Modern Classifieds / WTB: TVC C-3PO & Starkiller

Looking to get two of my most-wanted figures from this line, so trying my options! Looking for the TVC #6 C-3PO (w/ removable panels and limbs) and the TVC #100 Starkiller. Loose or carded, it doesn't really matter to me. Feel free to make offers!

Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: April 27, 2014, 03:49 AM »
Okay, can someone clarify something for me - is ALL EU considered out?

I took's press release to mean that anything post-ROTJ was out. However, I'm seeing on different sites (especially JTA's reports) and from different interpretations people saying that all EU is dead. So I'm not sure exactly what's going on.

Or a lot of other random important people.

Like maybe Savage or Maul? ::)

I think it'll be very appropriate if the last episodes in the line-up are part of the Sifo-Dyas arc - ending the show with how the whole conflict started.

Scored Mace Windu today at the… Disney Store... :-X

He seems kinda Sithy with those yellow eyes that for some reason Hasbro went with, and then of course there's the whole missing decals on his gauntlets…

It's a good figure, but it really feels lacking as a realistic interpretation of the TCW version; it doesn't have that oomph that the Anakin, Obi and Ahsoka figures had. The packaging makes no mention of TCW, the pictures are from Ep.II… Oh, well. At least we got the figure.

Does anyone who reads/keeps up with JTA notice their TF coverage article stating that the EU is dead and we'll be getting 0.00 products from that era anymore?

Considering most of what I buy anymore is from the EU, this is very, very bad news. In fact, hasn't Star Wars as a franchise survived because of the EU? Especially merchandising-wise? Hell, the TCW figure line is an example. Plus, it gives you kind of an image of how Disney is directing "Star Wars" these days.

I heard/read that Jabba was a SDCC exclusive? Any confirmations on this theory?

Lord Almighty, that Vader……..

(BTW, his crotch guard is incorrectly over his inner robe. Not sure if that'll be fixed since it looks like the guard and belt are one piece :D)

Really great news. It's just too bad they never completed/started work on the final Maul arc. Well, at least we'll be getting his story through the comic book and the final episodes in some form - I have to say putting them on Netflix is pretty appropriate and not fan-crushing, IMO.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

The latest bit to surface this week is that Abrams and Lucasfilm are now searching for a 20-something female actress who is either of mixed race or black. The rumor is that Obi-Wan Kenobi had a daughter or granddaughter.

PLOT TWIST, Duchess Satine from TCW and Obi had a love child. ;D

Jk, that'd be funny, though. Gotta say I'm loving all these bits and pieces of news we're getting.

For me this is great news (being that I loved Maul's return, despite how ridiculous it sounded), but the biggest defeat for me will come around the time that I open those comic pages and imagine how every scene from those panels would have looked like in cartoon form on TV - I was practically sh***ing my pants during the Sidious vs. Maul & Savage duel, and now we're gonna miss out on what's practically going to be the biggest, most epic conclusion to TCW on TV? It just downright sucks. I can't even believe they wouldn't even make this a direct-to-DVD release, I mean, this is Darth freaking Maul!!!! We all know this guy HAS TO die at the end of the arc, right? I'm just in such disbelief by all of this.

Received Plagueis in the mail after nearly a month of waiting from Hasbro ::)

Wow. What a great figure - the sculpting and paint apps really are on par with this guy and it totally gets me into his character. Gotta love that absurdly detailed angry 'ol Muun face, too.

Scored Plagueis on Hasbro!!!! It's funny cuz I was on eBay earlier seeing what the going rate for him was but then I saw on JTA that he was in stock! With the discount code, this feels like a total win.
