I dunno man, half the price.  :P

Acid Rain keeps chugging along and pre-orders for their latest Laurel Mech are up.  A paratrooper version of the Marine Mech.

Acid Rain Laurel Airbourne w/Pilot

Sponsored link with EE btw.  $109.99 + Free Shipping

Love the Laurels and there are quite a few out now...  I'd like another worker but I'm waiting for the time being on another one of those.

This line accrues in value if you're thinking of diving in.  Not much I can think of that I have that isn't made anymore that hasn't spiked in value.  It's been a fairly sound investment as it's gained traction in popularity.  Never really look at toy collecting like that in the past, but this line it's been hard not to see the value of the stuff once it's out of production.  :-X

Hiya is saying the Aliens APC is a done deal and will be sold this August.  I hope so, because I really want it despite the cost, and I'm fine with the constant pushing back of dates and stuff.  I just want to really be sure the APC is getting done actually, and not have it in some limbo.  They're saying now the pre-orders needed are met and it's happening sooooooo, yay!

I wound up sticking my foot in the Maraduer Inc. door on their WW2 kickstarter, which got REALLY deep at the last minute and got all the Russians covered.  There's a German with a friggin pack of cigs with a loose cigarette to boot!  He's listed as a Grenadier but basically he's an SS Grenadier, and was a stretch goal unlock.  I wish they'd gotten to the N Africa figures.  Those Brits were amazing and I loved how well they were done.  But I assume Marader will just do another kickstarter later on all the stuff that didn't make the cut.

They're allowing me to basically buy into anything I didn't get and after the barge is paid up, I'll be in a better place to support this line.  I just wanted my foot in the door on it.

The Hiya APC is supposed to be a done deal too this year and that's $750 going out to toys in no time. :-\

I'd say the answer to that is simply Hasbro is a tanker in terms of maneuverability and demand/perceived demand requires faster steering to avoid the issues.  I'm assuming the waves were planned out long ago and it was too late to make changes on some of those.   :-\

unless you're literally on the fence I just can't see that being what gets $500 out of your wallet

Well, if you are a completist TVC carded collector who is looking at paying $500 for POTF Yak Face on ebay in Spring 2019, you might as well just buy it now and get a free Barge with it.  :P

Seriously, if the POTF carded version of Yak Face is only coming with the Barge and they only make 5000ish, that would make it possibly the rarest modern carded Star Wars figure ever.  Rarer than the Toy Fair Vader or Theater Edition Jedi Luke or anything else.  Couple that with the crazy ebay rates some of the modern TVC figures go for and it's probably (sadly) worth it to just order now if you need the figure for your complete TVC collection.

Given the incessant bitching that STILL hasn't ceased since the SDCC micro carded mouse droid and Salacious Crumb, I think it's definitely possible.  Hell, people still bitch about that Jar Jar in Carbonite, and Jar Jar eats it.

1.) Crimson Guard
2.) Iron Grenadier
3.) Storm Shadow
4.) Night Viper
5.) B.A.T.

You people are insane...  though the B.A.T. was definitely in my running.  One of my fav Cobras as a kid.

Does SNAKE armor count as a figure?  Hmmm

Oh come on, there's that little window open there.  Maybe. 

Well I mean I think it can happen and it will happen but at the same time I don’t tho k that box had **** to do with confirming or helping to confirm Hasbro really thinks this is a done deal...  cuz of a box lol.  But hey, whatever helps them keep on believing in themselves I guess.🤷‍♂️

They’ve been complaining incessantly about price on TVC since it was announced so yeah I expect actually a lot of implosion on this price and a refusal to buy.

Toy Reviews / Re: Nova Ubiquitous Action Figure Displays

They’re definitely a good option Matt, and thank you for the kind words on the review I appreciate that.  Tough to make time to do them and my photography is obviously not as good as others, but I thought people might like these sets.  There are similar things available overseas too, but I’d say nothing this polished.

Only GTP is as “complete” aesthetically but their design lacks the interlocking connecting this set does have.  Again I think they’re apples and oranges as products go though and both accomplish the display goal in different but effective ways.

Nova posted a teaser image that implied, to me anyway, a more imperial looking design is on the way.  That’s cool.

Well, after their "EXCLUSIVE" images of Mark Boudreaux holding a box, it MUST be true!!!

If you’d told me Kmart/Sears would outlast TRU ten years ago I’d have said you’re insane.  Yet, here we are.
