Over the weekend I started getting security advisory messages about the JD forums.  I’m not sure if it’s an issue with the host server or another ongoing cyber attack that’s happening, but I wanted to at least report the issues that I’m encountering.

It seems like the Disney Parks might actually be the best way to get some creatures that might interact with the action figure line.  I actually bought the Disney release of the Happabore (seen on Jakku in The Force Awakens) for a Niima outpost diorama.  And it seems that now there are even more creatures to be had.

One that I've had my eye on?  The Krykna spider as seen in both Rebels and The Mandalorian!  I'm just curious to see if these might eventually turn up on the Shop Disney app or in Disney Stores.  I can barely find any to buy online.

Hasbro Pulse revealed the Gaming Greats version of the Imperial Rocket Trooper yesterday on social media.  It goes on sale later today at 1 pm ET.  It appears to be the same sculpt as the Imperial Jumptrooper which was released in 2019 and was also exclusive to GameStop.  But the Rocket Trooper has some alternate deco.

Collector's Tips / Acrylic Stands for Hasbro Vehicles
« on: January 21, 2021, 04:28 PM »
As I'm working on getting more of my collection displayed, I'm beginning to look at acrylic stands for that floating vehicle effect.  Hasbro is finally getting on board with this concept in the most recent release of Slave I, and they're also including a similar kind of stand for the upcoming Razor Crest Haslab release.

Is anyone using these for their vehicles?  Do you recommend any particular ones?  I found this particular site:

Feedback on them would be appreciated, and I'd also like to see some other possible options.

Star Wars Dioramas and Displays / FEXT Dioramas
« on: April 20, 2020, 01:36 PM »
I saw some of this company’s work in a promotional email from BBTS.  They’re called FEXT Hobby and their offerings look pretty interesting.  They have one set that looks overtly inspired by Star Wars, and at least a couple of their other sets would work well for displaying Star Wars figures.

Has anyone gotten any of their products so far?  I would be interested to read some actual user feedback on their display units.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this news pop up in my social media feed from Yakface.  I know that this had been rumored, and getting confirmation of these is welcome news.

Based on the initial reports I was expecting a number of repacks.  But the revised look for Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) is a massive improvement over the original release.

That Force Spirit Yoda image hit Instagram but it disappeared almost pretty quickly.  I'm having a difficult time remembering what retailer has this exclusive.

Looks like a Black Series Bib Fortuna might be on the way and is on display at SDCC.  Good catch on Jesse's part!

The Vintage Collection / San Diego Comic-Con 2019
« on: July 16, 2019, 10:47 AM »
SDCC 2019 preview night is tomorrow!  Aside from the Sith Trooper from TROS that seems to have leaked out, does anyone have predictions about what we might see in the next few days for The Vintage Collection?

The Black Series 6" Figures / Black Series Hyper-Real Figure Line?
« on: February 7, 2019, 03:09 PM »
Still pondering what the newly rumored Hasbro Black Series Hyper Real line will be like.  Yakface is reporting a price point of $79.99, which is honestly kind of steep.  Will it be something like the Marvel Legends 12" figure line?  That is the next closest line that comes to mind for me, but IIRC those figures had an MSRP of $39.99.  ML collectors please feel free to correct me if I'm not accurate with that number.

WOW.  I had been relying on HTS for figures at a reasonable price, as well as an avenue for getting convention exclusives.  So this news is disappointing to say the least.  Especially since online avenues like Amazon have been pricing their figures higher than the MSRP.
