Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Basic Figures

So if that turns out to be true, then I really must question the logic behind this. Bog down the first 3 waves with repacks and all the new stuff in wave 4? Why not simply release 2 waves with all the new stuff and call it quits for the Solo line and move on. Why drag it out so much? Retail is already drowning in and clearancing most of these repack figures. The demand has clearly been satiated. Just seems like a recipe to create an unnecessary backlog.

My issue here is that of the 5 characters revealed for the Solo basic line, only 2 are new, and only 1 is a completely new character. For a movie opening line there's a lot of old here, which isn't likely to help out in the whole first wave usually gets over shipped department. Hoping there's a few more to be revealed at Toy fair to round out the wave and make it a bit more interesting. Seems to me like they should make wave 1 strong with all the heavy hitter characters so you can have the cast at film launch.

That's quite the line up of of and exciting characters you have there....

Really hope there's a little more to be revealed for the first batch...

So could anyone who has these give me a rundown on the quality? I was eyeing them up and thinking about grabbing an alien or two but I'm seeing some mixed things about them as far as QC goes. Just wanna be sure they're not gonna break if I look at em for the price. Any info would be appreciated.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Deluxe 2-Packs

I've actually been thinking it'll be released as part of The Last Jedi first wave of 2 packs. That would probably make the most sense, we got a Poe and Snowtrooper with wave 1 of Rogue One, why not a Rogue One release as part of Last Jedi wave 1?

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2017 Hasbro Star Wars Fan Figure Vote

There's the problem...they were smokers!

I mean so were Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru but they made figures of them...

I'll see myself out.

Not to mention Jabba and Dannik Jerriko and their big ol bongs. But I guess that was ok too? In any case, the Tonnikas made the cut on several sites, so it'll be interesting to see what happens with this.

Why would anyone waste o vote on TFA Luke? He's pretty much guaranteed to be coming.

I like it, but I've always been a sucker for astromechs. And honestly, I never at any point thought this was going to be anything but astromechs so it's not like i got my hopes up for anything else. Overall though it's a really nice set, i like the droid choices, they're all pretty interesting, and i always enjoy more realistic Clone Wars figures. And yeah, the price stings, especially for me since I'm in Canada and after currency conversion and shipping it's going to hurt a lot, but it's not like I've bought much lately anyway. I don't mind paying a little extra for some fun droids if that's all i'm gonna buy for the foreseeable future, so why not right?

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Reboot Episodes I, II & III?
« on: December 27, 2015, 09:33 PM »
I don't really want to see that, I've never been a fan of remakes. Let them stand as they are, regardless of what popular opinion is about them. That said, if ever there were to be some sort of remake, I'd love it if it were an animated continuation of the Clone Wars series. The way that series was progressing I think they would have handled the fall of Anakin brilliantly, and I was always really kind of bummed out that they would never be able to tell the whole story to it's conclusion.

The Force Awakens / Re: TFA 3.75" Action Figure 2-Packs

Really pumped up about these two. These are the kind of Star Wars figures I go nuts for,love my scummy aliens and what are probably just backgrounders. Nice to see they're not shying away from the Hammerheads and Walrusmen of this new trilogy so far. These two are really nicely sculpted, very detailed, and fun to look at. Jakku seems to be shaping up to be the new Jabbas Palace and Cantina of this new collection, and I look forward to seeing what else they have in store.

I just checked my Jabba over and he's fine. no sticky residue on the throne, no oiliness on his underside. I wonder if it's a widespread problem or just a few of them that have these issues.

I've gotten 6 of the standard line figures, Kylo Ren, Rey, FO Stormtrooper, Phasma, Flametrooper and Constable Zuvio. I'm surprisingly impressed by these despite the low articulation count. They feel solid like a POTF2 figure, but with the sculpting and detail of a modern black series figure. I'm having quite a bit of fun with them, feels like when I started collecting again, before I was worried about POAs and was more interested in how awesome it was to finally have a Bossk and a Gonk and Jawa.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2
« on: September 9, 2015, 05:05 PM »
Surprisingly, the more I look at Black Series Kylo Ren, the more I'm questioning whether I really need one. I'm actually quite happy with my 5 poa figure, it's really quite nice from a "sit on the shelf and look cool with the many hundreds of other figures I own that are basically in neutral poses anyway" perspective. Sculpt and paint quality look about even, the only thing is the articulation, which I think I can probably live without, since most of my stuff ends up in neutral poses anyway. I'd definitely grab a couple stormies for a squad though, mix them in with a few of the standard ones, cuz why not. The pose-ability is a little more noticeable if you've got a squad all standing completely identically.

It's very disturbing how easy a victory that was....

It's incredibly stupid. On top of being with all the other adult figures like aliens and predators and Freddy and Jason and such, it doesn't actually advertise drugs at all, as many have said, the "Meth" accessory is hidden behind the insert. Where do you draw the line? Ninja turtles have swords and other violent weapons, should they be removed from shelves? GI Joes have guns and terrorists, does buying a Cobra Commander mean advocating terrorism? Girl dolls are dressed very sexualized with unrealistic proportions, should we boycott those too?

   Whats next? Am I gonna start being denied my Cantina Aliens cuz some crazy mom finds out those little plastic cups they have on them are filled with a ficticious alcoholic beverage? I suppose we might as well kiss Han Solo figures good bye as well, drug smuggler that he is. And forget ever getting you're dead Padme and extra crispy Owen and Beru....And while we're wasting all this time saving their children from a terrible action figure they probably don't give two tosses about, being that they're just boring old dude action figures that no kid would probably be interested in anyway, lets instead teach them a very important lesson! That if you see something you don't like, just gripe and yell and scream until everyone caves in and gives you what you want. Cuz that's good parenting. But I digress...
