1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Forces of Destiny
« on: August 24, 2017, 10:52 PM »
Not sure where this thread should go, so feel free to move it.

While I like these figures, and do like the focus on the women of Star Wars, this line does not seem to be doing well at the Targets I stop at.  I'm not sure if they should have been moved out of the Star Wars aisle in to the "girl" aisle.

I know this was a multimedia sort of launch with books, mini-web episodes, etc., but I don't feel like the push has made much of an impact.

Its really too bad as I think these things are kind of neat.  Not sure if these should have been a sub-line of the 6" figures to pull in more collectors, or what.

Is anybody seeing these move at their local stores?  My local Targets have A TON of these on the shelf.

Rogue One / Imperial Assault Hovertank

Watched the SWAN livestream of the Hasbro panel.  Good stuff including an Imperial Assault Hovertank.  I didn't catch the release timing for this, but it looked sweet!

Any The Beatles fans out there?  Awesome A New Hope themed parody remake of The Beatles entire Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band.  Really clever and well done.

Article on how two guys spent five years working on this.  Wow.

Rogue One / Nerf
« on: March 7, 2017, 04:15 PM »
Any of you scruffy looking nerf herders try out the "glowstrike" feature on some of the newer Nerf guns?  Just curious if the glow in the dark feature works well or not.

Anybody know if Walgreens is getting any more 6" exclusives?  We heard at Toy Fair that Target and GameStop were getting exclusives, but what about Walgreens?

The Sequel Trilogy / Star Wars Episode VIII (SPOILER FREE)
« on: February 15, 2017, 02:25 PM »
Figured we should get this started for those of us that want to avoid as many spoilers as possible.

Does anyone know when the official teaser is going to be released?

Other Collectibles / Air Hogs
« on: November 17, 2016, 12:54 PM »
Anybody ever buy any of the Air Hogs remote control vehicles?

My son wants a remote control airplane for Christmas, but was thinking of getting one of these since they seem like they should be a little more stable and forgiving for novices.

Any thoughts, or advice on which models are good/bad?  It looks like there are a lot of different Star Wars options at very different price points.

Star Wars Anthology / Rogue One (SPOILER FREE)

As usual I'm trying to avoid significant spoilers, but still want to chat about mainstream knowledge around this film.  Figured we should have a spoiler and non-spoiler thread.

Gentle Giant / First Order Stormtrooper Mini-Bust
« on: December 3, 2015, 05:14 PM »
Saw this on Yakface the other day - Gentle Giant First Order Stormtrooper mini-bust - but thought I would start a discussion here.

I've got a majority of the mini-busts that they've made over the years, but between the massive drop in releases and the increase in prices - I think I'm done.  They've maybe released two or three items all year in this line, and now the price appears to be $120 each  :o :o  These mini-busts were in the $70 range just a year or so ago.

While I think this mini-bust looks sweet, I think I'm done.  If I'm going to drop that kind of money I think I would rather just get the Sideshow version for $210 that is super poseable with lots of accessories.

Does anyone still collect these mini-busts?

Watto's Junk Yard / Gaming System Recommendations?
« on: November 4, 2015, 12:18 PM »
I need the advice from some gaming experts on what new gaming system to get for the family.

I've got a hand me down original Wii that the kids use from time to time.  Based on feedback it doesn't sound like getting a Wii U is a good option if I want to continue to play these games.  It seems like it makes more sense just to keep the legacy Wii and keep using that in parallel with whatever new system I get.

My kids are 8, 6, and 6.  I'm most interested in the new Star Wars Disney Infinities game, and more younger kid oriented games.  I'm not a gamer myself.  Ideally this is a system that would last a good handful of years, but I don't foresee this being the system they use extensively for teenager/adult games.

Thoughts on the best/cheapest system?  Should I buy new or pick up a used system?  I want this for Christmas, but was wondering if there is a best time to get the best deals - e.g. Black Friday.

Got some extras from ordering cases.

3 3/4" C-3PO $12 + shipping
6" Cody and Han Stormtrooper - $18 each + shipping

PM if you're interested, otherwise I'll just put them on eBay.
