Nice to see another type of character get the 12" treatment from Sideshow...  I was kind of tiring on Clones there.  The Sandperson looks good.  I like Hasbro's though, and think it was one of their better figures.  It'll be interesting to see how much better SS can do, since they almost always do.

Joe Defender / Question Regarding Action Man/Z Force
« on: March 28, 2012, 01:21 PM »
I'm curious, as I really don't know much about them, but are the 3.75" Z Force/Action Man/British GI Joes readily available for decent prices?  I am having trouble finding much on Ebay, but what I do find tends to be on the cheaper side...  I'm kind of curious more about lots of loose figures though, rather than one here or there.

And obviously would much prefer buying here than overseas.  :-\

Doesn't seem like many folks here are interested in them at all.

The Vintage Collection / Keeping Cardbacks
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:16 PM »
Anyone actually keeping the cardbacks to the Vintage Collection, but not keeping figures carded?

Just curious if that's something any/everyone considered other than myself...  I just dug out my original VOTC, VTSC, etc. cards too...  Together, they're neat looking with all these new figures.

They're cranking these out pretty well...  :)

Clicky To Pre-Order

Love these, but can't jump into them.  I'll stick with original little guys, but yeah these are great. :)

After tinkering around with some headswapping, I thought I'd start a thread on it that we can have handy for those curious about what heads work with what figures, and which maybe barely do, perhaps with only slight modification.

I'm not entirely sure how to do this thread, actually...  if I should just update the first or second post with the headswaps that work, as they're submitted, or what we'll do, but we're going to give this a whirl as something to have handy here as new figures come out.

I'm going to ONLY include heads that need slight, or no modifications...  This is less a thread for customizing, and more a thread for swaps that aren't terribly hard for anyone to do, or more for heads that require zero modification at all.

Base Figure:                                               Compatible Head & Details:
-2003 Saga Captain Antilles                         -2010 Vintage Endor Rebel (No Modification)

-2010 Vintage Endor Rebel                          -2003 Saga Capt. Antilles
                                                                 (Requires slight filling of the head for

                                                                 (Requires painting, or swap to the
                                                                 Black Variation Trooper)

-BAD Hoth Rebel Body                                -Vint. Rebel Fleet Trooper

-Vint. Rebel Fleet Trooper                           -BAD Hoth Rebels
                                                                (All Variations)

-Vint. Endor Capture Luke                           -Vint. Deleted Scene Luke

-Vint. Deleted Scene Luke                           -Vint. Endor Capture Luke

This is a work in progress, and will only get my attention when I have the time, which isn't often these days, but I'm just giving fair warning, and don't be offended if I don't get to your suggestions right away. :)  I'll try to stay on this as much as possible.

Feedback / tmanthegreat's feedback
« on: February 27, 2012, 09:53 PM »
Tmanthegreat is a buddy of mine from 1:18 military collecting and he JUST helped me out with getting an animated Bossk for my Bossk focus.  Yes, Bossk's Bungalow is a little more complete today.

Thanks Tristan, I appreciate it bud!

Feel free to read this guys attempt to rationalize that the PT is superior to the OT:

Joe Defender / G.I. Joe Toy Fair
« on: February 11, 2012, 02:25 PM »
I'm following the Imperial Holocron Twitter feed ( for news/info on the Joe line from the Toy Fair presentation...  Eric was kind enough to let me use his info, so head there to check out more as it comes in and follow him if you're on Twitter (And me too @Jesse_James77 & @JediDefender)!  I'll update as we go here.

-50 Figures From Retaliation, 9 Vehicles, CC Exclusives...  Not a shabby year for Joe fans!

-Wave 2, Firefly, Flint, Snake Eyes & Stormshadow (who'da thunk it!?), & Roadblock.

Methinks Roadblock might be a popular guy with Hasbro this year.

-Bruce "Joe Colton" Willis & Lady Jaye... also Alley Viper, Cyber Ninja, & Dragon Ninja in Wave 3.

Hasbro loves them Ninjas.  I'm giddy!  :)  Can't wait to see both, and Flint...  and Firefly...  F it, I like the line in general.

-Wave 4, Jinx & Blind Master.

-Wave 5 Crimson Guard & Night Viper?  Sweet!

They're really revealing some pretty far ahead waves it seems.  What'll be left for later shows?  Blowing their Joe wad early.

Make sure you follow @ImpHolocron!  E's the man!

Gentle Giant / 2012 PG Rebel Fleet Trooper Mini-Bust
« on: February 11, 2012, 12:18 AM »

As with all GG stuff I'm interested but cannot afford to pick up yet another hobby...  I really am tempted on this one though.  I tend to pick up all things RFT, and GG's will probably be pretty outstanding.  :-\

Must...  resist...  uh what the hell, I may try tracking this down.

That is awesome. :)

LEGO / Lego Mini Planet/Ship/Figure Sets
« on: January 4, 2012, 07:49 PM »
These are available on Lego Shop for $9.99, and some sweet pics of Series 1!

Given Hasbro's F-You to collectors this year, I'm even more interested in these and less interested in Hasbro product, so I'm definitely going to collect this small sub-line.  It's too cool to pass up IMO.

Watto's Junk Yard / Security Camera Systems... Anyone Have Them?
« on: December 29, 2011, 08:52 PM »
I got an inexpensive 2-camera set with a monitor for Christmas...  I got it because I'd been looking around at them since I had some neighbor issues, which included threats, and so I was looking to just be sure I caught anything that happened on camera (plus I kinda find security cameras a cool idea).

What I was wondering though...  what should I do to hook them up so they record?  Like, what are the options there?  I assume a VCR or your own DVR would work right?  I have a cable company DVR but can you hook it up to that too?  Can you hook it up to a computer, and if so, how?  It has the AV cables for hooking up to the monitor...  Don't really see many options otherwise on how it could/would hook up to anything else.  :-\

Anyone here experienced with security cameras at all?  I like the goofy aspect, even just to watch animals or whatnot.  I'm hoping the neighbor is gone once his lease is up, but you never know.  At that point I'd use it for animal (as opposed to *******) watching or whatnot.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / 12" Phase I Clone Capt. Announced
« on: November 17, 2011, 08:52 PM »
Along with the 442nd Siege Trooper they've announced a Phase I Clone Captain.  Kind of going through the motions with the Phase I's, and a figure I think will be popular.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / 12" 442nd Siege Clonetrooper
« on: November 17, 2011, 08:51 PM »
Odd choice IMO, but if you're into the militaries line, this announcement is kind of cool for the obscurity fans.

It'd be great to see them pack in some siege-specific gear like mortars, range-finders, or other stuff like that.

12" toy lines really focus on the diversity of militaries, but the gear makes some of the soldiers what they are IMO, and Sideshow needs to up that I think.

Bespin Luke is on the horizon and Hot Toys seemed to have teased a pic of an exclusive accessory he'll have.  :o

Pretty neat, but I cannot fathom this figure will be affordable for many. :)  HT makes insane stuff though.  As good as Sideshow is, HT is in a whole other realm in this hobby.
