Rogue One / Re: Rogue One TIE Striker

One on the left looks a little more natural to me oddly.  If not a little chubby looking.  Definitely a different stance of sorts.  I may buy some and articulate them for that $.

Iím with Scott.  I loved it.  The series was pretty perfect start to finish.

A buddy of mine gave a couple loose string/plot holes but theyíre minor to us both and overall the ending was about as good as I think could be expected.  And I like the Bran pick for the reasons Tyrion gave with him not being perfect, but he has a good story and heís a good person with wisdom on his side.  And I was glad to see, after being beaten over the head with characters I loved dying season upon season, to finally have the characters I loved be there at the end.  The table meeting was a nice cap to it all.

Shadows of the Dark Side / Re: Jabba's Throne w/Oola

Took my Jabba out and heís def got the meat sweats going on his undercarriage now but only very slightly.  Heís out of the shelf and on metal now chillin while I debate what Iíll do with him.

I decided to do research on Jabba knowing he now oozes and his ooze can melt plastics near it.

I have learned some interesting stuff about rubber and plastic, and that rubber can sometimes really not like plastic, especially if it has a plasticizer in its chemical make up that is common in toy manufacturing but which likes to eat other more rigid types of abs plastic.  Basically itís dissolving abs like MEK will do for plastic welding.  Very interesting stuff.

How Hasbro could basically **** the bed on this is kind of mind boggling.  It also is rather nasty off-gassing going on of the rubber portion of Jabba.  I wish there was a resin cast lower body you could buy as a replacement and ditch the rubber skin.😕

This would make an interesting story I think since so many have had major damage from a Jabba.  As it stands Iím just glad I got to mine before it damaged anything at all.

I may try sealing him and see how it pans out but Iím really worried to ever put him on anything at this point.  Anything I care about anyway, like his said or the barge.😬

I really hope the new one is something cool.  OT era is my preference in general.  Iím not opposed to a Vader TIE redo and that would be cool but I guess itís just not super high on my list.  Iíd take it gladly though as the current one could use some work.

They did the Interceptor already.  Bomber would make a nice TVC box.  There seems to be a very long standing (as I like to call them, ďdartboard rumorĒ) rumor of a Vader TIE rerelease le a whole new sculpt depending on who is making the claim and at what time.

It is surprising that Vaderís TIE hasnít been out in a while seeing how it was a constant there for some time.

I believe it's the Black Series slab, which to my eye looks correct, but I am pretty sure it's the slab with, at best, a magnet added to it.

Yup, I wound up with some extra Han Stormies and I may now just use them for head swaps since helmetless Stormtroopers are always fun too.

That headsculpt looks somehow 10x better on a classic Han costume figure.

Could also PO this on our sponsor site Entertainment Earth too.

Wink wink nudge nudge...   :-X

What Matt said covered my thoughts.  Iíd add too, they seemed like theyíre not as useful the lower the dragon is too.  Iím fine with it.

Truth. ☝️

I wish every toy Hasbro makes was as easy as this was.

I look forward to not seeing all of those avatar movies.

I still canít sit through the first Avatar even.  I did clean up on getting their mechs on clearance though.  Those are kinda snazzy for custom mech fodder. 🤔

Apparently the street date had nothing to do with them being put out...  now that makes zero sense to me of course, but yeah the street date has 0 to do with them being put out for a fathwrís Day gift thing in menís clothing...  Iím kind of boggled why theyíd set a date and not have that date coincide with the reset but apparently thatís the case. 

In my industry thatís never the case and dated materials are dated for the exact day of resets in stores nationwide, but itís not collectibles haha.

Can get them shipped to store online easily.

Easily the best sculpt of a human that Hasbro has ever done.  Hands down it is unrivaled and not even close that I can think of.

How this can be shipping alongside the 6Ē Trash Compactor Luke with the goofy teeth is beyond me.

One of these was floating about today in the board game aisle so I grabbed it and itís very cool.  Itís simply sculpted and fits in perfectly with my original figures.  The simplicity of the sculpt is enough to set it off from other imperial figures but to where you get the idea of who it is supposed to be.  Iíd love more unmade figures to fill out my Vintage figure shelf.  Itís not everyoneís cup of tea but Iíd love a Fleet Trooper, a Wedge, Evazan, cantina band guy, Sandtrooper, maybe some others.

Not sure Iíd want it to go too far like into PT or ST characters, but more originals Iím all for.
