Kind of sad to see them go as well. I can't say I ordered from them a ton anymore, but still a couple of times per year (and definitely at convention exclusive time if I was able). As others said, another avenue lost that just makes collecting more difficult. It is almost becoming an online only (EE, BBTS, etc.) game for me anymore - especially for Vintage Collection. TRU gone, our WM is awful, and Target has had Wave 1 since release day.

Word is breaking that the great Stan Lee has passed away at age 95. So sad, he - along with George Lucas - had a big part in guiding my childhood.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Resistance - Coming Fall 2018
« on: October 29, 2018, 08:35 PM »
I was just discussing this show with our eleven year old tonight when we were sitting down to watch the newest episode. We both agreed that although it isn't "bad" it just hasn't really grabbed us so far. I know full well that I am not the target audience, and I'm fine with that, but it just seems sort of "meh" so far. I'll stick with it, but it hasn't quite stuck the way Clone Wars and Rebels did (at least for the most part).

Star Wars Resistance / Re: Star Wars Resistance 3.75" Basic Figures
« on: October 8, 2018, 09:25 PM »
It wasn't really mentioned (doesn't seem to be much anymore), but is it basically the next Solo wave (Beckett, Val, etc), then right into these early next year? Seems like there might not be much else out in the "basic" line until Episode 9 then.

Love the Crait Luke, and everything in general looks great. I'm sure it is the idea of outfitting the Assault Tank, but it is surprising how much love Rogue One is getting early on in this Vintage Collection comeback. Tank driver, tank commander, plus repacks of the Death Trooper, Jyn, Cassian, and Scarif Trooper. Not to mention that I believe the upcoming Stormtrooper and Death Star Gunner are considered to be from Rogue One as well. Pretty large percentage when we only get 16-20 figures per year.

I was making a run to ACE today and decided to take a peek inside the Walgreens next door, and lo and behold they had a shelf full o' Veers. Actually the only Star Wars figures they had at all.

The Vintage Collection / Re: TVC Rogue One Imperial Assault Tank

I still haven't picked this up, but hope to eventually. Is this just not coming to retail at all, or maybe still on the way? I know it is pretty readily available online, just curious.

I'm personally pretty excited about the new Stormtrooper Han. Yes, we have gotten it before,  but I never tire of seeing OT releases in this line, and it looks like the head/face paint is improved here. Plus, a figure that always sort of "belonged" in the original line. If it has to be an exclusive, I'd MUCH rather it be Target than Wal-Mart.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: NYCC 2018

A bit surprised by that version of Obi-Wan as well, but I really like it. One of my favorite versions. Grievous is cool, and long requested so it is nice to get more prequel figures in the line here and there. I also welcome the Anakin return. I saw that figure one time, and at the time I was thinking I'd stick to only OT characters. I've since grown to appreciate the "world" approach, and wouldn't mind picking one up, especially with the face print improvements.

Star Wars Resistance / Re: Star Wars Resistance Figures Revealed

These look pretty good, and I enjoy the brightness/colorful figures. I really do hope the show and toys are a hit with kids. I'm not sure if I'll. Be picking them up, as I narrow my focus, but I hope they are a hit.

Hall of Justice / DC Primal Age

This has been teased as a "lost line" by Pixel Dan for a couple weeks, but was confirmed at NYCC that this is a new Savage World style line from Funko (available at Amazon). It is strange, for sure, but there is part of me that think it looks fun. It is basically He-Man with DC characters, complete with an Ace the Bat Hound for Batman to ride and a Grayskull inspired Batcave playset.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Hasbro's Vintage Conversation Q3 - Vehicles
« on: September 28, 2018, 02:13 PM »
I know most of us already have some form of it, but how long has it been since we got a version of Luke's X-Wing? I don't mean the non figure compatible one that came out around Rogue One, but the regular version. It is one of the most recognizable ships of the Saga, he uses it in all three original movies, and it seems like it has been a bit since release (unless I am forgetting).

I know vehicles are few and far between now, especially if there isn't a new movie to promote it. I wouldn't mind seeing this get an update/re-do at some point. I currently have the Dagobah version on display, and also own the POTF2 FX version and the Wedge Antilles exclusive.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Comic Book Thread
« on: September 28, 2018, 01:59 PM »
Although I haven't personally read it, sounds like more darkness returning to the DCU this week via Heroes in Crisis#1. I won't get into details here because of spoilers, but suffice to say several heroes were killed off including a couple fairly significant ones. Not to mention what happened to Nightwing in the recent issue of Batman.

I know it has been discussed before, but I really have had enough of all the "dark and gritty" with comic books. It has its place, sure, but I like my heroes to just be heroes and punch the bad guys in the face.

Received wave 3 this week, strange to get it before Wave 2. Havenít opened them yet, but they look like nice figures. Iím not an articulation snob by any means, but every time I get a new wave of these it makes me think about dropping a lot of the 5 POA stuff. It is probably those vintage card backs!

Disney Parks Droid Factory / Re: 2017 Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset
« on: September 27, 2018, 12:12 PM »
I was on a pretty tight collecting budget when the OTC release of the Sandcrawler came around, so it has always been that one vehicle I have been holding out for (whether as a re-do or remake). Not sure why, but at least so far Iím just not super wow-ed by this. Looks good, but Iím still unsure. Plus, Iíd have to wait to see if it was offered through the parks app or something since I am nowhere near the Disney parks, and wonít be visiting anytime soon.
