I keep hoping things with Star Wars stabilize but if they don't yeah, it'll be secondary for me.

Not just rumors, Hiya themselves have said preorders are slow for it, but we'll see.  If it's meant to be it'll happen.  I did my part for it and would buy a 2nd if I could justify it.

Star Wars: 3.7" such as it is, Bandai 1/12 kits and pocket kits...  Star Wars will always be first even when it's basically dead Last in what I buy these days just due to nothing to buy anywhere.

Acid Rain: probably my first love in a weird way right now but it is spread out some.  There are a good many figures coming this year but little in the way of vehicles besides some repaints.  There's a sdcc and over seas exclusive but neither will be easy to get.  And none of it will be cheap by any means.  They are rereleasing and updating some older figures though  and I appreciate that.  I only hope it continues as I missed the Marine last year and it gnaws at me.

Hiya Aliens/Predator:  my biggest punch to the wallet for toys will be the Hiya Aliens APC at $250 but I'm getting one.  I'll just maybe sell a kidney.  Lots of new figures there too with 6 Predators, 3 Marines and 2 "deluxe" oversized Aliens coming.  Still no queen though which blows.

Model Kits: I buy some models as I see them and they fit the scale I like.  Most of it all fits into 3.75" scale though in some way.

I've watched them on the smart tv so I could see them on a bigger screen and I really enjoy them.  To me they're like an extension of the Tartakovsky 2D clone wars toon.  They've got action, fill little dead spots in the films sometimes, and are all just fun to me.

There's some guys claiming they're pushing an agenda...  I guess because they're female centered, and I suppose in the sense they're maybe trying to appeal to younger female fans they are(?), but I like them.  I even like the animation which I've heard called "cheap".  Guess I'm easy that way.

I'm hoping they branch to more characters but not because I have anything against the females.  I just think the format is cool for mini stories and I'd love to see more characters get this treatment.  I dunno why the bitching from some fans but I guess it's a way of life at this point for folks and they can't do anything else. :-\

Ah ok were they older things out of production now?  I have some of those...  5Below used to have some I think.  They're ok.  They're fairly sturdy but being just prints on cars stock they're obviously OT an exact replica or anything but they're fairly sturdy as that goes.

They'd be easily glued together with super glue too and not come apart at all.

I think packs were $1 so I'd buy them randomly just to fiddle with.

not sure what you mean about pocket models nick but Bandai makes pocket models and they're normal model kits just very small.  Snap together usually have stickers and need painting to really make them nice.  I have the Falcon and plan to get more.

Diddly you already found the thread but if you have any questions I can answer the there for you.

Some More Pics

I'm not much up on my Predator specifics as far as who's who there, but it lists them all as "Predator 2" from what I've seen.  Now, I watched Predator 2.  I enjoyed it.  I remember multiple Predators at the end of it, but not THAT many.

That's a whole lot of huntin' going on.  The one with the mossy loin cloth is weird, and has the trophies.  I like him best.  He'll look sharp hanging out in Jabba's Palace or the Cantina, talkin' shop with Bossk.

Yeah I popped the bed on my budgeting this month or I'd have bought a few.  I had to pass. 

I really want some HACKS guys sometime but it keeps getting pushed aside for Hiya and Acid Rain.  Thinking I may change that for that mage figure in wave 2.  Probably time to put in an order for some wv1 then.

I hadn't caught a review of it, but sounds like an easy enough pass...  at least till they inevitably repaint it a billion times.

Actually I'm not so sure BB units will interest me like their R2's have.  The 3PO's are cool but they're not interesting me the same either, so I am not sure how I'll feel about BB units of all colors.  The protocols definitely left me sorta meh, and while I'll want some I certainly don't have that need to pair parts up at an absurd level.

I hear they're a bear to make too, in a crowd at least.

But yeah, BB8 didn't strike me as too cool anyway...  I have a couple that work fine by me, and don't need another, but I like the idea of the weight in the bottom keeping it upright.  That's a nice innovation.  Attachments like his torch arm would've been neat.  Like you said about Chopper, who if they repainted I'd rebuy happily again and again, that's a tough act to follow because that was easily the best action figure of the year outside of the Black Series Rogue One figures in my mind.  And it was easily as good as they were.

Ok so after today it's just best to give the Predator line it's own thread maybe? (Nevermind I see I missed Eric's!  Thanks Jeff!)  Tons of new ones revealed.  They've got 10 figures coming within the next year.  Not Shabby for a smaller company.

While humans have gradually improved by Hiya, their Alien and Predator figures are pretty amazing out of the gate!  We tweeted pics out of all the Predator figures coming soon and it was a lot complete with trophies and other accessories!

The pics are up on our Twitter feed out on the front page.

I think everyone is confusing him with TV funny man Dave Coulier

Then the guy who stole off him better really watch out.  PW might have him shanked.

HACKS skeletons are on sale for a while.

The wave 2 "fantasy" figures are looking awesome.  That wizard would make such a cool Old Republic Jedi.
