 Ice pics man thanks.  The commanderís cupola ring has a mount for a fun it appears, and that you could make it functional if you wanted to try.  Thatís pretty cool.

They really went batshit crazy to make this nice.  Canít believe so many complainers.  Figures are $13...  good ships arenít gonna be free. 🤷‍♂️

I get it, nobody likes paying more (me either, I wish it was $50 too) but I mean itís been 10 years since ďcheapĒ. 

ďItís over Johnny.  Itís over!Ē

Mine shipped. 😬

Wow man that was way earlier than expected

I know Jeff has been keeping up on the Sectaurs line news and they are now letting everyone get in on preordering.  Just a heads up that they collect money right away not when theyíre ready to ship just incase you guys didnít know that.  Thatís typical tho how these work.

Here is the linky dink.

May buy one if I happen upon them.  I do want one but Nintendo kinda pissed me off on this.

Bet they had one of those casts of his face from an old Hammer Horror film he worked on ala how they did Peter Cushing for Rogue One.  It was definitely ILM work either way.  I heard Andy Serkis did the motion capture part.

I do not recall actually, as it wasn't really something I was gonna jump at so I kinda didn't pay it much attention.  Generally though he's always a little above on pricing right out the gate on new stuff these days.  Not usually outrageously above but a little bit above its retail price.

To be fair the guy who did Jaysonís thing was honest and said as much.  Jedi Temple Archives on the otherhand chose to omit that information from the guyís post and post it to their front page instead.  If anyone ever wanted to know who is taking the high road in that feud, there are many instances of similar things.  Jayson has posted many things they have taken and not credited going back for quite a while now.

I believe there was even some ďDisqustĒ editing and/or removals as well iirc.

Jaysonís work was really similar to what the Acid Rain Toys have applied and itís all done by hand.  It sounds funny to say that in this modern age but some stuff just has to be labor intensive still.  When itís done well it stands out for sure.

The funny thing too is as painting a model goes, which that more or less is, this is actually fairly simple but still labor intensive.  The work guys put into model kits can be painstakingly complex and intricate utilizing a ton of different styles materials and techniques.  Jayson shows though that even ďsimpleĒ is incredibly effective but still it would be a hefty cost addition to toys with how labor is costing more overseas these days.

Yup, thanks for sharing Jayson, it's pretty neat...  I like the efforts on blast apart features.  Seems like they're trying new things there.  The carded Mimban Stormtrooper blows so that's welcome updating there too.

The walker's smaller than I'd hoped for, and that's my personal hang-up.  Won't me I won't get it, but I may get it for customizing/alteration more than anything else.  Details like the footpads are kinda meh for me and the scale is just off, the cannon is a tad wonky looking for me...  It's neat, better than the AT-DP from Rebels by far, and so I may be picking it up for its usefulness but not for its intended purpose.

Wings look squatter compared to the cockpit.  Wish there was an ICS book for this film.  :-\

One wm never had many and another had so much of those wave of figures and stuff it was insane.  An endcap stuffed with mostly Rathtars but obviously a lot of probots got in there too.  Nuts on the Rathtars count tho.
