Star Wars Universe / Bob Iger Stepping out as Disney CEO
« on: February 26, 2020, 11:11 AM »
Iger is steping down with a strategic role through 2021. Bob Chapek, who most recently was chairman of Disney parks, will become the CEO. Anybody know anything about Chapek?

The Original Trilogy / Lando's capes and Skiff guard outfit
« on: February 7, 2020, 12:26 PM »
Does Lando's skiff guard outfit reside in the Falcon from SOLO - ROTJ? It appears to be on hand when he needs it.

What about the capes? Did he take those out when he lost the Falcon? Were Han and Chewie flying around the galaxy with a bunch of sweet capes the whole time? If the capes were moved out, he didnt rescue them from cloud city... and that's why he has to wear Han's clothes?   ???

Star Wars Ships and Vehicles / Custom TROS A-wing
« on: January 1, 2020, 02:04 AM »
Im looking to make a Custom green TROS A-wing out of the many extra TLJ a-wings I picked up.
Can anyone recommend a paint thinner that will work safely with modern hasbro plastic to strip of the blue paint.

The Sequel Trilogy / Rey, Raeh, and Rey's real name?
« on: October 30, 2019, 01:15 PM »
I forgot about this factoid from TFA and haven't revisited it since seeing TLJ. The backstory implies that Rey knew the name of the Dosmit Raeh, the female pilot whose helmet Rey found and held on to.

If there is still some reveal about Rey's true heritage, Maybe adopting the name Rey was a choice.

I want to add some extra foot pegs to an ewok village playset. Are there any prefab methods for adding easy foot pegs?

Other Collectibles / Sabacc games & collectibles
« on: January 17, 2019, 01:14 PM »
Has anyone followed the history of sabacc?

Last night I found this "Han Solo card game" for $8 at Gamestop. I had never yet taken the time to compare movie sabaac to the game Lando and Zeb play in Rebels. I guuess they didn't need to make the two renditions match up.

The Black Series 6" Figures / 6" Black Series Solo Wave 4
« on: February 28, 2018, 12:59 PM »
Thanks to yakface.com I just searched brickseek with 409947806 for 6"TBS Dengar.

All local Walmarts in MN list zero stock, but the price is $5. Maybe a few stores will keep that price when these roll in.

Does anyone know when these might be scheduled to appear?

A friend of mine asked me if the name Leia Organa was ever used in the OT films. I honestly can't remember with all the bias of trading cards, visual guides, etc. that fill my brain with SW factoids.

Other Collectibles / Porgs!
« on: December 24, 2017, 01:43 PM »
I have three porg needs and im curious how likely they are.
 
-My wife wants a much more accurate porg than the current plush options.
- I want a Hasbro 3.75" Hasbro multipack.
- I might also buy a 6" scale multi pack too

Do I have to wait for Ep.IX The Porgs Strike Back where a huge colony of porgs unleashed on a First Order base for the next porg merchandise invasion?

Hear me out on this one.

I am a guy who generally opens every toy I buy and leaves almost nothing in the package, so buying repacks that come on cool TVC cards has not been too appealing.

I am also a guy who has stated I would happily pay around $20 a figure for a new subscription line of 3.75” super articulated figures designed for collectors.

The opportunity before me is to tell Hasbro they screwed up by boycotting the first two waves of the TVC relaunch, or realize that “buying in” to a relaunch of a non-exclusive line I really want is a steal priced at $12.99. Two waves of repacks will run about $110. With my previous comfort in paying $20 a figure for a hypothetical toy line, that $110 cost will be absorbed into the first 15-16 new sculpts I buy as the line continues. After that the line will be smooth sailing while enjoying continuous waves at $12.99.

All this is true even though I did manage to pick up an extras of 3.75” TBS from Walmart including two extra Reys, Finn, Poe, Kylo, and a bunch of Stormtroopers when they were marked down to $5.84 this past summer. It has been hard to overlook how excessive these new repacks will be, but I have pulled my head out of my butt and now I see the light.

Collections / Displaying AT-ATs
« on: August 1, 2017, 09:41 AM »

I’m making this post as a general survey about how you as a collector would display a group of AT-ATs in any scale from micro machines, to Titaniums, to Action Fleet to model scale to the Kenner mold, or the big Hasbro mold.

If you were to display several AT-ATs together, how many do you picture needing to complete your scene?

Also reply with the same answer for AT-STs if you will.

Jocasta's Reading Room / Doctor Aphra
« on: June 20, 2017, 03:36 PM »
I wanted to see why so many people are so crazy about Doctor Aphra. I have read up through Vader Down and I will admit she is fun but I am not yet blown away. Does she get particularly awesome later on?

I don’t like her ship, I can say that. It seems like a run of the mill sci-fi ship.

The droids are kind of fun.

Has anyone used a digital copy of TFA or R1 on  Amazon Fire, or Chromecast? I am presuming Disney will do a collector's version of Rogue One so I am holding out until this fall.
I would like to find a cheap digital copy provided that I can watch it on wither Amazon Fire or Chromecast.

Does anyone have any knowledge if this is possible? I do have the "big" Amazon Fire with the built in drive if that helps.

I am looking for more details on this ship than what is present in the links below. Has anyone seen anything in the bluray extras or elsewhere?

I am considering making a toy of the ship, but I need better images. Everything so far is so sparse that I don’t even know where the cockpit sits.

Modern Trading / 2x TBS 3.75" Deathtroopers for Egon Spengler
« on: March 16, 2017, 03:24 PM »
I have two sealed 3.75” Walmart TBS Deathtroopers I will trade for the Egon Spengler from the recent Walmart Ghostbusters release. Egon can be shipped loose, he must include the ghost part and the stand issued with the figure.
