The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2019 - 6" Line
« on: February 19, 2019, 12:09 PM »
Mainly that X-Wing Luke is in the orange jumpsuit with black boots and gloves. Snowspeeder Luke has a poofy orange jacket (you see Luke grab it in the movie when 2-1B tells him good luck) that goes over the jumpsuit, poofier pants, and tan colored moccasin shoes and gloves, and sometimes a thermal hood under the helmet. It's all really minor differences.

Thinking of the poll, a 3 pack of Bespin Guards (white, black, Asian) and a 2 pack of Ugnaughts sounds about perfect for online exclusive sets next year.

1. Snowspeeder Pilot Luke
2. Bespin Dinner Leia
3. Hoth Rebel Trooper
4. 2-1B
5. Carbonite Chamber Han
6. General Rieekan
7. Bespin Guard
8. Cloud Car Pilot
9. Admiral Ozzel
10. Falcon Cockpit Lando (in Han clothes from final scene)

Love the Spidey and Jim Lee X-Men stuff. Too bad that Magneto set is $60 and I only want Magneto.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Black Series Hyper-Real Figure Line?

They're fools to think people would start collecting new scales at this point, especially since 6 inch is only 5 years old. Maybe the newer fans from TFA onward will enjoy them? I'll only considering buying one if they hit clearance at Target or Ross.

Very cool, but nothing I need to track down. Makes me feel very old that TPM stuff is considered "classic" now.

Episode 9 3.75" / Re: Triple Force Friday - October 4th

I'm probably the only one who couldn't care less about Force Friday this year. If the last few years are any indication, 90% of the first 1-2 waves will be able to be had for $10 or less by Christmas, so the desire to rush out to beat scalpers for the first figures is low. I don't know if I will want to own any products from The Mandalorian, and likely won't until I see the show. And who on earth could be excited about another EA Star Wars game after the first two travesties they've put out?

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2019 Kenner Retro Collection
« on: February 16, 2019, 01:06 PM »
Maybe it's because I'm sick of this whole nostalgia cash grab deal with TV and movies, but vintage style figures don't excite me at all. Probably because I wasn't alive during the initial Kenner run and started out with POTF2. Honestly I've been debating selling off a majority of my collection, and nothing coming out of Toy Fair is really exciting to me, so perhaps is the time to get on that.

Forgive me for not going back in the thread to find the answer, but...

Has it been mentioned which Jabba comes with this? Is it new or either the WM Exclusive or Black Series set one?

I believe it is the new sculpt one from that TRU Black Series set (that never showed up in my area)

Hmm, now I wonder if I can wait til the summer to get the Barge by itself for cheap. Not too concerned about the Yak Face since I'm an opener and can just buy the VTC version

Picked up the TLJ Battle Damaged Phasma from a Disney Store over the weekend. Judging from the amount on the shelves, I probably should have waited for EE to clearance them out

Got an Archive IG-88 for me and a Bossk for my buddy at Target earlier. They also had 2 Lukes but the paint jobs were terrible. Not just the new facial scan paint, but the flight suit as well. Just need Dengar to finish off the 6 inch bounty hunters

The Vintage Collection / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting?

Seems like Gamestop is knocking on death's door, which sucks because they've focused more on collectibles and merchandise, and actually stock new stuff. They aren't perfect, but still beats Target and Walmart

Bumping this as sort of a humble brag, but I've been preordering the MAFEX Marvel figures. Spider-Man releases next month, and I also have Venom on preorder, and yesterday Jim Lee Wolverine went up for preorder. I'm debating if I want the Deadpool figure. But the MAFEX line is really nice. Pricey at roughly $65 per figure, but the releases are spread out pretty far apart.

Target has them on a couple pegs with their new set

I was freaked out seeing these there because I assumed these were WM exclusives

I'll have to put in an order. Disney Stores are way out of the way for me, but my buddy frequents them. I passed on this one when he made his last run.
