Let the drooling and price complaints commence!

You can get a single trooper for a paltry $199.99.

You can get two troopers, with bonus Heavy Blaster Rifle & Mousedroid for $399.99.

Or you can get a limited release two trooper set for $399.99, with bonus Rifle Rack from the hangar control room.

While these look simply amazing, the price hurts.  $50 a month isn't too bad though, to own them, but plunking $400 down...  yeesh.

TV-9D9 / Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)
« on: October 6, 2014, 02:47 PM »
This is on the WatchDisneyXD App, and I watched it over the weekend...

There are spoilers here if you're waiting for it to be on TV or can't watch it so beware, more or less.

I did NOT like this episode as much as the previous one.  There was some darkness with the implication that the weapon they were after does nasty things to living beings, but the idea a simple rifle can shoot and bring down a walker?  Kinda lame.

Likewise, how'd the Empire have and use these on Zeb's species, but now need prototypes to mass produce them?  They had them before, and used them to put down a species more or less!

I felt like the pacing was a little goofy, and 3PO and R2 were really crowbarred into it IMO.

I did like I guess why they were there, and where they ultimately wound up, and how there are more to the rebellion (and more powerful groups obviously) than our main characters.

I didn't loathe this episode by any means, but it just wasn't as good as I was hoping. 

I liked the Capt. Rex cameo though, and I'm all the more happy I own a Starspeeder toy sized to action figures. :)

Oh, one more thing, the alien animation is thus far a good deal more redundant than it was in TCW...  I know that's a thing the animators try to overcome as a series goes on but it's been way too noticeable so far.  They really need to diversify their alien character library they can go to.  The Aqualish all wearing the same jacket is getting old.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / SS 1/6 TIE Pilot
« on: July 22, 2014, 04:15 PM »
And another 1/6 Imperial Trooper teased today...  Now the TIE Pilot, which is must-have to me, is being teased.  I may order this fellow out of the gate.  :)

Frankly, unless the SS one is vastly superior, I love the Hasbro one and I'd be going that option.  It's cheap, but was scaled pretty spot-on (despite for years the 4" one being way too large).

I've told myself I'd only buy Bossk and "Militaries" figures from Sideshow, and then barely any PT stuff...  all OT.

Sideshow is making me think I need to reconsider that because I can't afford even all the OT stuff they're putting out, as great as it looks.  There's just tons of it! 

Just a heads up that Sideshow will be revealing apparently a behemoth Darth Vader figure at Comic-Con in a couple weeks.  Should make JesseVader go crazy. :)

Just teased, but Sideshow is revealing a 1/6 C-3P0 at SDCC in a couple weeks.

Watto's Junk Yard / Regional Pop (Soda) You Love?
« on: July 9, 2014, 09:31 PM »
Saw this mentioned in an article, and it got me thinking...  Is there regional pop you love?  Maybe you didn't even know it was a regional thing?

Cherikee Red's gotta take the cake for most racist soda in my neck of the woods.  It's good stuff though, and hails from out east a ways, but I still consider it pretty regional.

Very regional is a bottling company about 20 mins from where I live called Natrona Bottling, which still sells pop in glass pop-top bottles.  The flavors are heavy, and the carbonation isn't a mechanical process like most are now.  They actually bought old carbonating machines to do things old school.  Pricey, but love it.

Tried and true Faygo is still big here...  Not just for the Juggalo either.  Love the black cherry.

I love micro-brew beers, but I've found almost every place making its own beer makes its own root beer too, and so I also love to sample the thick syrupy micro-root beers around here too.  I'll even buy a growler, but that stuff can make you sick if you hit it too hard.  It's a diabetic nightmare.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / 1/6 Bomb Disposal Clone
« on: July 7, 2014, 08:57 PM »
I used to think my Hasbro Clones took up a lotta space but then...  yeah... 

Clicky and enjoy!

I dig how he comes with the clippers, the bomb, and the pack.  Pretty slick little extras.

It's on its way to my house...  Time for some good insightful stuff. :)

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / 1/6 R2-D2 Coming Soon
« on: April 28, 2014, 08:47 PM »
R2-D2 is now on the way, and wow did that Teaser Video leave you wanting more!

Looks like some kind of, at the very least, magnetic doors to open up...  I'm wondering if there isn't a good deal of metal on him though, and the magnet was that little tool they were using to open his panels?

That's pretty awesome if he's largely made of metal though.  I love stuff like that.

This one looks to be pricey though...  But still you'd think they'd be able to re-use him a good deal, so maybe like the Battledroids, he won't be too bad on the wallet.

Wave 3 at my K-mart now...

K-Mart got TONS of Wave 1 in, but over time (not all at once)...  Almost all have sold through, at all the stores I hit.

K-Mart by me got at least 2 cases of Wave 2...  Again, almost all gone.

K-Mart got Wave 3 in today.  I expect the same thing.

My point is, people need to start faulting retail a ****load more for their over-ordering (or not changing DPCI's, or not supporting the line at all), rather than faulting Hasbro for stuff...  I know that's the "in thing" to do, but seriously...  Case assortments weren't GREAT, but at the same time, perhaps in a non-movie year, retail should be held somewhat accountable...  If K-Mart can do it, why can't Wal-Mart?  Or Target?  They can too.  TRU would be in bigger trouble if not for sales...  which again, where are WM and Target on that front? 

Other Collectibles / Star Wars Mini-Skateboards (Tech Deck)
« on: March 10, 2014, 05:18 AM »
Because if it exists, it must have Star Wars licensed versions of it, now "Tech Deck" mini-skateboards are licensed to put Star Wars characters on them.

I have to say the art was kinda neat.  They're something I sadly have looked at over the years.  The boys used to want them, and they annoyed the **** out of their mother and I, but I saw a purpose...

The purpose was that Tech Deck USED to make some elaborate sets to play with that were replicas of skate parks, and they're about action figure scaled...  Sets of staircases, etc.  I bought many on clearance and some looked great for displaying figures around out of the box, others take work.  Others went better with my military figures.

Anyway, long story short, I loved the sets...  Wouldn't it be neat if they made Star Wars locations you could play with your Star Wars Tech Deck on?  Like a Mos Eisley empty Hutt Swimming Pool playet?  Or a Coruscant rail you could slide along or fall 9,000,000 stories to your death if you missed it?  Nothing quite like playset teases.

These were spotted at a local Pittsburgh Target by moi, and they're neat looking but I bought none.  I'm sure Jeff wants a Han figure skating around on that Han board though.  :D

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / 1/6 Geonosian Battle Droid Sets
« on: February 19, 2014, 05:26 AM »
SS is pulling out all the stops with the Geonosian variation of the Battle Droids.  A 2-pack of troopers, and a Commander with a holographic Count Dooku stand that lights up?  $130 for each set, but 2 figures or a figure and a great accessory is pretty cheap for Sideshow stuff.

I was not going to get many PT army builders but these I may pick up eventually to compliment the few Clones I do pick up.

Star Wars Rebels / Star Wars Hero Series X-Wing
« on: February 15, 2014, 01:57 PM »
A 30" X-Wing was shown, listed as a "Hero Vehicle".  Not compatible with 4" or 6" lines though...  Interesting.

30" sounds like it might be damn close to being compatible with the 4" line though.  Have to crunch numbers.  If it's looking good, it's a good base for customs perhaps?  I'll wait and see.

Sounds like it's mostly just a way to put a big vehicle into kids hands that isn't too complex.  I'm intrigued!
