Other Toy Lines / Re: 2017: What Are You Collecting?
« on: July 8, 2017, 12:10 PM »
I haven't been collecting much for the last few months.  Gentle Giant Mini-Busts, OT Lego and Super 7 ReAction, but that's not keeping me very busy.

And I'm fine with it.

The guys at the lego store by me said they wouldn't be getting the exclusives at all.

Word is that they're making more this round, and that they'll continue to ship from September until the end of the year.

I want one.

I still want an NES Classic too, and quite honestly I'm surprised Nintendo didn't make more of them.  The demand is absolutely there for these kinds of sets.  They could charge more, throw in more games, and sell tons of them.

So Poe is close to grown up now... she's 8 and a half months old... and weighs about 9 pounds.  We're hoping she has a little more growing to do, but she's pretty awesome and being tiny gets her lots of attention.  We can't walk 10 feet in Chicago without someone stopping us to play with her.  Here's a photo from yesterday:

It was mentioned in the comic book thread, but it belongs here too:

I actually thought that might have been the best episode of the show yet.  I'm hoping that they've realized they need to make this show way better.  But the fact that they've just arrived at a compound of untrustworthy people makes me worry that they're about to turn the show into the same thing that TWD has become.

Funny, I almost didn't post on both because I don't really want Reddit figuring out anything about me outside of Reddit. :)

I spent a little under $100 probably?  It was about 7 orders, the most expensive of which was for the Luke and Han.  I probably could have saved money piecing them together or waiting until the hype died down, but here I am.

Someone also asked on Reddit if I was going to do the Space Slug set too, which I'd forgotten about.  So that's up next.

or finding a nice Canadian who might be willing to help you track one down.

Good luck finding one of those.

I finally gave up and ordered this one on eBay.  Managed to get it for $19, which is only about $2 more than the App would cost.

I stopped looking once I got the rest of them ordered, but other than the one time that I ordered it, I never saw it again.  Super weird.

So I found the Thrawn I was looking for the other day, and now Fenn Rau is the only one I'm missing.

There are a few on eBay but they're selling for $35 to $45... Do we know yet what the deal is with this guy yet or where those are coming from?  Limited distribution in stores? 

I'm just trying to figure out if I should be looking for a good aftermarket deal on him, or if patience is likely to pay off.

Haven't seen Covenant yet, but I'm one of the ten people who thought Prometheus was great.  It had a few warts, but overall I loved it.
