The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases
« on: December 17, 2015, 04:22 PM »
Found the mother lode of wave 3 today. Picked up Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo, and 2 Troopers plus some others for local peeps. The manager looked at me funny, wondering how many I was going to buy.

Popped mine open just now, and does anyone know how to fix a loose torso joint? One of my Stormies is super loose at the joint. Otherwise, they're great. There were enough there I could pick the best paint apps.

Picked one of these up today. Having second thoughts on it, so if anyone got an extra WM exclusive 4" FO Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren, I'd be happy to trade. It's still boxed.

Scott Weiland, former lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, dead at 48

Dang. He was going to do a show here tonight too.

Picked up Goss Toowers, PZ-4CO, Hux, and Guavian Enforcer at Blain's Farm & Fleet today. Their Toyland just opened, so.

^ I agree with that. I'm not at all impressed with the 5POA figures or vehicles, and the Falcon was a letdown, but I'm really interested in this line. Really digging the AOTC and ROTS vehicles, since we didn't get any Micro Machines for those movies.

Was a price on this listed? I didn't see it in the RS article. I find myself much more interested in Micro Machines than figures these days.

Received the Endor wave, and the OT Mission Series sets from HTS today. Yoda and the Hoth Han and Luke are works of art, but the Endor wave really leaves me cold. Even the POTF2 versions were better than these clunkers.

I'm hoping the $8 figures are middle-of-the-road on articulation, in that they offer figures with waists and elbows again.

Picked up Bespin Han, Skiff Lando, and X-Wing Luke from WM today. Kinda disappointed Lando's helmet is glued in place. Dang near tore the head off before seeing the glue.

The Leader class Jetfire is available on Hasbro Toy Shop's eBay store for $22. I had to pick it up for that price. Also, the Generations Nightbeat is on sale for $7.50.

I'm sure they meant "official." The back of the box said this is 18" tall, and weren't all the third party ones about two feet tall when combined? But it's better than forking over $600 for one of those.

Titan Devastator is expected to retail for $149.99 and will feature all six Constructicons transforming and combining into the "largest Combiner Transformer ever".

Cedar Falls, IA. Specifically, Wal-Mart. They must be early on their reset, since I never find these early.

Found the new Avengers series at WM tonight. I picked up the Witch, since the Toy Biz one was awful, but they all looked great. Thor looks really neat, and I might end up building Odin.

Still trying to collect Star Wars. Still somewhat successful, except for not being able to find Doallyn. I cherry pick the 6" guys, but after seeing how Hasbro cheaped out on Vader and Yoda, I might stop with those.

GI Joe- Hasbro just appointed a new brand manager for this line, and in an interview with the Club, started talking about figures and vehicles (!) but we'll have to wait and see. If it turns out to be 2.5" stuff like the Avengers/Marvel stuff, there could be a lot of incredibly disappointed collectors.

Transformers- The rumors for stuff this year will make this interesting. There's a $150 Devastator in TRU computers, for starters...

MOTUC- I've cherry picked for years now, and will continue to do so until the end. There's supposed to be a "huge" announcement at Toy Fair, and I'm left wondering what it could be.
