Other Toy Lines / World War Z Action Figures

Looks like they have listings for 4 figures: Gerry Lane, Paramedic Zombie, Special Forces Zombie, and Civilian Zombie. I guess they are from Jazwares?

I can't say I'm overly impressed but am enjoying the book so if I can find them at retail, probably TRU I am guessing, I may be down.

JD Sports Forum! / NFL Offseason 2013

No draftniks in here?

Slow night for Skins fans, with no picks until #51, but interesting nonetheless. Only 1 QB taken and no RB's...odd year. Looks like some good depth falling to the 2nd round too.

I have to admit I love seeing that Teo douchenozzle getting nary a sniff from about 30 different teams. I'm sure someone will take him tonight, but refreshing to see people ignore the hype early on at least.

Who's getting the Honey Badger? From his rap sheet, seems like a perfect fit for the Cowboys.  :P

Other Toy Lines / Prometheus Figures
« on: October 24, 2012, 09:14 AM »
Saw new Prometheus figures at TRU yesterday courtesy of NECA. They had the "flight suit" alien dude and un-suited alien dude. Those appeared to be the only two. These looked pretty cool, but didn't seem to have a lot of play features. Which I guess makes sense as these are probably not aimed at kids.

Not sure about the scale, 10" maybe? I am horrible at guesstimating dimensions, so I could be way off there.

MTT FTW!

Props to JTA for breaking this story with some juicy details.

3 feet long?  :o

20 battledroids included?  :o

Wowzers.

Sorry, didn't know where to post this...I don't see a thread for TVC Class 2 vehicles.

So the new ships have been spotted out in CA, according to GH. Again, I have looked closely at the attached scans and cannot for the life of me figure out how they are differentiating TCW and TVC vehicles now.

IS there a way to tell if a Class II (AKA midsize) vehicle is part of one line or the other?

I can assume the Pod Racers are part of the Vintage line, but I have no clue about the new AAT. The most recent AAT released was for the Clone Wars line, but does this thing belong there too?

I am hoping any TCW themed ships that may get released next year (if there are any) will have some sort of subscript or footnote/tagline/etc to set them apart. It actually does matter to some collectors like myself I think.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / CW Mandalorian Troop Shuttle
« on: July 2, 2011, 09:23 AM »
Ok, so technically it's not a "figure rumor" but EE has a new pre-listing up for a Mandalorian Gunship.  :o

No pictures or description, but based on my recollection this could be 1 of 2 different Mando ships. Either would be pretty cool as they are both interesting designs.

Hope to see more at SDCC!

I'm all in on this one. Would give my left nut to see what Michonne will look like.

Awesomeness!

Watto's Junk Yard / The Cape - Anyone Watching This?
« on: January 18, 2011, 01:37 PM »
Is anyone sticking with this? Do you find it terrible or enjoyable? Or both?

I'm mostly sticking around for Summer Glau and because I enjoy Keith David's acting. I still can't make up my mind if I like it or not though. I already gave up on that atrocious No Ordinary Family show, so I'm not eager to replace it with something equally bad.

Curious what others think...

Vintage Kenner / Question About Ewok Battle Wagon - Pls Help!
« on: October 26, 2010, 02:30 PM »
I hate to clutter up the forum with another thread, but I wasn't sure where else to post this.

I have a burning question about the Ewok Wagon that I have tried to research exhaustively but to no avail. It's really bugging me, so I am hoping someone that has one of these can help answer this:

RE: the side panels -are they exactly the same? I mean, literally.

If you look closely, you can see there is a groove at one end of the panel. It seems to me that both grooves should face inwards, but on the one I bought loose, the groove faces in on one and out on the other. It seems very odd Kenner would have sculpted it this way, unless they were really trying to cut corners and save money. Is there truly a "left" and "right" panel? Or are they identical?

I have looked at the photo archive on JTA and it appears they have one facing in and one facing out on the one pictured. (IE: seems to support the fact that they ARE identical)

Also, I have been scanning eBay auctions for months now, and although I have seen numerous auctions for side panels (there are 2 listed right now), I have never seen the one that I "think" I would need.

It seems to work ok - I can affix both panels in the correct orientation on mine, it just bugs me about that end groove. It's too assymmetrical.

Anyone have a clue on this? TIA!

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Clone Wars Wave 20 (aka 2011 Wave 1?)
« on: October 20, 2010, 09:10 AM »
CW39 Hondo Ohnaka (Re-Pack)
CW40 Obi-Wan Kenobi
CW41 Clone Trooper Hevy (Training Armor)
CW42 Cad Bane w/TODO-360
CW43 R7-A7

Still seeking confirmation of there is anything new about Obi-Wan or Cad Bane, suspect both are previously uncarded versions from the deluxe sets...

Very bummed that they have still not found a slot for the Cad Bane in Clone Armor figure.  :(

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / CW "Battle of Orto Plutonia" Battle Pack
« on: September 8, 2010, 08:20 PM »
First reported on RS, now pictured courtesy of Sandtroopers:

http://www.sandtroopers.com/sandwatch/hasbro/20100908/target0.html

Looks to be a straight re-pack of the Talz, Snowbi-Wan, Snow Ani, and either Rex or the generic snowclone that's coming with the new Freeco Speeder.

Kind of a day late and dollar short if you ask me. That episode is practically a distant memory. Where are they gonna slip this in - after the Mandos and Arc troopers packs? Seems like an odd choice, but whateves.

The Vintage Collection / The Street Date Debate
« on: June 29, 2010, 10:38 PM »
I was talking to a friend of mine who works at TRU at lunchtime and he said they actually got cases of the new vintage stuff on the truck today. He checked it out but they could not put them out until August 6th like the box indicates. Looks like they mean business with this street date stuff.

Still, at least it's shipping to the brick and mortars...I wonder when Target and K-Mart are due for theirs?

29
According to RS, TCW12-19 are all re-packs. (The photos seem to confirm this numbering as well) So hopefully the first 3 Fall Waves will be 4 figures apiece, mostly new stuff.

I know Wave 2 was rumored to be all repacks too, but I can't remember what thread that was in...

Jedi News UK has info up on their front page about the new TCW Mail Away figure for Fall 2010, none other than the estimable Sergeant Bric.

Can't go wrong with more clones, I guess.
