The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: SDCC 2017

Darby, you're more optimistic than me.

I try to be. It's hard given the state of things and the general negativity in the hobby, but I figure, it's as fun as I want it to be. I think the early going will be very good for TVC. We're not seeing the whole picture and like Jeff says there are at least 5 figs from TLJ apparently we're not seeing. Old Man Luke and Jedi Rey are almost certainly two of them. So long as there is a healthy dose of new, I'm all for it.

Never got Jango. $9 would be hard to pass up. Not a completist with the six inch, though that gets harder and harder.

$15 is a steal. I'd definitely buy another.

I understand the concern with some of the repacks but these will all sell. Rey is Rey and she'll be essential for this collection. Kylo and the Trooper never sit. The RO figures never got any serious distribution. I've never seen Cassian or the Shore Trooper and Jyn and the Death Trooper only once or twice, before Christmas. I was surprised at first by the Hoth Rebel, but didn't realize this is the running change. Completely forgot about that. I wonder if that opens the door to the second Utai.

 ;D :o

Great stuff. Definitely one of the better panels they've had in quite a while. Can't say there's nothing I didn't like.

I need a Luggabeast. I'd live with another Teedo and BB-8 to get him.

Nice.  Put me down for 3 Rathars.

Anyone need only Bala-Tik?

I'd be up for Bala-Tik.

I'll shoot you a PM when the time comes.   :)

Thanks!

I mentioned on Twitter it would have been nice to see this new technique applied to the initial TLJ figures, because the difference between Resistance Rey, who is hands down the best figure they've done in this line, and the Jedi Rey are staggering. Oh, well. I imagine we'll get a lot of amazing likenesses going forward.

All about these, but there can be no justice until there is justice for Barb.  ;)

Stuff Etc. is a consignment store by and large, which made this odd. Definitely wasn't someone brought a few pieces they couldn't sell in, this was cases of overstock.

ETA: Actually I'm pretty sure I know where these came from. There was a toy shop here last summer that came and went in a flash. I remember they had some of these assortments in stock at the time. I bet they gave up the remainder to consignment.

Stopped by the local Stuff Etc. and they had a large amount of TFA late wave (Kylo Res Unmasked / Resistance Rey) figures for $3.99 as well as last wave TFA Micro Machines. I was able to score the AOTC set with the AT-TE which I had yet to see. Probably worth a look if you're still hunting for anything in this range.

I saw Wonder Woman today and LOVED it. Beyond being the best of the DCU films, it's one of the best superhero films. Not without its flaws. I'll say I actually enjoyed her earnestness. It's such a strong contrast to either the grim dark or wink and nod heroes we usually get. I liked that her heroism and compassion were unmitigated.

The 'controversy' over the screening barely merits any mention, other than it's sadly of the same ugly strain of thought that dismisses Rey as a Mary Sue or you hear coming out of bros who say 'I'm taking my Star Wars back.' You never had it to begin with, buddy.
