The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" Basic Figure Line
« on: July 30, 2017, 08:06 PM »
These look much improved from the TFA figures, which is good. Glad to see the silly accessories are gone. Bet these will still be eight bucks, though.  ::)

Packaging is great, seems to have a vintage influence with the big picture on the card. Hasbro is really pimping that Force Link thing, which I figure they'll stop supporting around this time next year if at all.

I think, so far, that I'll only be getting Luke and Rey on Force Friday, and wait to see what's up with Paige and Rose. Might end up grabbing Kylo too because I know I will.

I like it. I hope there's a Luggabeast set in the future, but I doubt it.

Other Toy Lines / Re: 2017: What Are You Collecting?

I think Diddly nailed it on Star Wars. One movie a year is not beneficial for toy selling.

Absolutely true. I saw on Twitter today that the Rogue One stuff is now on clearance at Target. What, half the line made it to the pegs there? I never saw wave 3 anywhere.

At some point, the licensees are going to run into a brick wall and say screw it.

Back to the topic. I guess it's just Transformers Titans Return, which is the only thing I've had any success collecting this year. I still buy vintage GI Joe when I can. Not very often. I'd say I was a Star Wars collector, but other than the U-Wing I got on clearance at Barnes and Noble, I'm not sure I've bought anything Star Wars since wave 2 of the Rogue One stuff dropped around the movie's premiere.

I like it. Considering there's no new GI Joe stuff other than Club offerings for the next two years, I'll try to pick this up.

Rogue One / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts

Picked up a U-Wing at Barnes & Noble today for $12. Neat ship, but I do wish is was bigger and had more paint detail. I should just be happy Hasbro is still making vehicles.  :-\

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2017 Hasbro Star Wars Fan Figure Vote
« on: April 28, 2017, 09:59 PM »
I figure this is like every other Fan vote they've ever had- the finalists are figures they're working on already, and have already been approved by Lucasfilm.

I wonder if Dorme or Cliegg would have placed higher if Hasbro had said the Tonnikas were out of the running. But I'll take Sim or my Yak Face resculpt. Heck, even a great ROTJ Emperor would be nice.

The vote is finally up. I picked Sim Aloo, though he's currently dead last at 8% of the vote. Looks like you can vote more than once too, though I haven't tried.

I'm torn between Dorme and Cliegg Lars. Odd that my choices would be from my least favorite Star Wars flick...  :-\

I was hoping this would happen around the TLJ release, but oh well. Gives WM time to clear out that backstock of 4" Black Series.

Man, I'm stoked for this. Now I wish I hadn't sold off my carded TVC collection.  :'(

I bet they'll just reissue it in a year or two with more/different games on it.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: TRU 6" Commander Gree

Transformers are having a price increase when the new movie stuff hits ($20 for Deluxes, $30 for Voyager) so it wouldn't surprise me if these went up too.

Came down on the price. I just want these out of my house now.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL
« on: March 31, 2017, 04:58 PM »
Glad to hear that they might slow from the yearly release schedule soon. I'm not sure the brand, or more accurately, the licensees, can handle half their stock going to clearance every year.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Stand Alone #2 - Han Solo!
« on: March 31, 2017, 04:43 PM »
I'm hoping Mr. Iger just misspoke and it's how Han MADE a name for himself by being the best smuggler, as Jabba said he was in ANH.
