Disney Parks Droid Factory / Re: 2017 Droid Factory C1-10P "Chopper"

Got to pick one up while on a job at DLand. Gotta say, what a well done figure. Kudos on the attention to detail.

Again, stuck in WM nightmare land here in LA. Every WM within driving distance is just a disaster concerning anything black series, all clogged with older product. Found one Rose while on a job out of town, but that's it so far.

I never opened anything from this line from TFA because the sculpting work was incredibly mediocre. Rouge One  was a different story because it was within the OT time frame and I found the sculpting to be quite decent. Have to admit that I'm liking what I'm seeing from TLJ line in terms of quality and very tempted to start opening packages, but not there yet.

The great part of my experience on Force Friday is hanging out with my buddies for the day. Did fairly well on the night at TRU, only missed the 6 inch Red Guard. What really bothered me was heading to WM Friday AM to find that in spite of the fact that they re-did the SW isle in preparation, AND that they had the product (because I found it the week before) they did stock anything 3.75 inch related for Force Friday. I mean, seriously? The toy manager had a job to do and he he didn't do it.

Hopefully, this time they'll use actual dialogue from the movie/actors.

There's absolutely a market for the SA "vintage" figures, I know I'm not the only one who will buy every one they make. The trick for Hasbro is finding the right production run balance to make the line worth the effort. They want to make them them, that seems clear from my chat with Steve and I can not wait until they start hitting the shelves again.

September is gain fast, not surprised to see these. Luke is absolutely the prize of the wave.

I was a bit taken aback on the price myself, but that's the way things are going. At least it sounds like we're going to be getting some bang for our buck with accessories and detail.

Pretty sweet. A number of non-collecting buddies have been waiting for the Luke figure.

I, of course, will be there and attempt to relay everything as it happens.

Having bad luck with C3PO. He was damaged in the case I ordered and so was the only one I've found at retail.  :'(

Too bad they never made the tank.

There's a lot of stuff they could have/should made in addition to the tank. TIE fighter and Blue Leader X-Wing among them.

I hit WM this AM and a couple of guys showed up expecting to find Wave 2, said that the store showed them in stock. One of them ran. Yes, RAN to the SW isle. What an ass. I swear the hot wheels guy who shows up every day and makes sure he's at the SW section before me, before looking for his Hot Wheels, was going to start throwing punches. Asshatery at it's finest. I only gleamed bits of the runners conversation with the store clerks which resulted in essentially "we can't find said stock."

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2017 Hasbro Star Wars Fan Figure Vote
« on: April 30, 2017, 02:26 PM »
Cast my vote for Sim Aloo. A little stunned that the two figures I want the most (Sim and Yakface) are dead last. And I'm with you guys, who the heck is the leader? I just don't spend any time in the EU.

After Celebration, the future of Star Wars collecting is... good.  :)
