Shouldn't expect any better with Filloni involved.

Star Wars Action Figures / Re: Repair? 6 inch Boba Fett Arm

If you really want to go the repair route rather than sending it back to Hasbro for replacement, I would suggest you go to your local hobby store and get a pin vice hand drill with copper or brass wire and do what is called pin the joint when you glue it back together.  Plenty of tutorials on Youtube.

Glass half full: Awful headsculpt and absolutely no interest in the character incarnation/figure aside, the inclusion of soft goods is a nice indicator of what we can expect from future figs in the line.

I am sure we already played this game before, but since everyone else is popping them out there I want to play too.

I found one of the Sandtroopers at Wal-Mart the other day after weeks of fruitless checking and months of waiting.  What I immediately noticed was the odd pink stains on the armour.  This is because they used a reddish brown wash and as it is a mass produced factory job, it pooled in the deepest recesses creating these unsightly pink stains, under the eyes, on the sides of the mouth and right in the middle of the chest as elsewhere.  No problem for me as I'm now quite familiar with the ways of weathering my own Sandtroopers.  Rather than using Detol or brake fluid to strip off the wash and start from scratch, I decided to cover it up with more weathering, because it is such a rad figure I couldn't wait to get it up to snuff.
I got him all weathered up and he's posed nicely on the shelf.  Painted the small details that you can forgive a factory paint job for leaving off, as well as the pauldron a nice shade of weathered white.  My 3 year old daughter comes and grabs him off the shelf.  She says, "This guy's really dirty!  Look how dirty he is.  He needs a bath to clean him up!  Can we give him a bath to make him clean and white daddy?'
I explain to her that he is supposed to be dirty, because he's a dirty trooper.  Obviously, she is used to seeing my hordes of brilliant white Stormtroopers and want him to fit right in.  Then she notices the ammo pouches.  "Look daddy, he has a purse!"
Kids are too much.

Kubricks / Re: Kubrick book?

That's a fantastic idea.  I've been waiting for this book for a long time.  If this could be done for $70-$100 per copy and be as exhaustively comprehensive as possible it would be a winner for me.  Watch out for the Disney Legal hammer.

Cool dios.  I can't believe Hasbro never put any out, missed opportunity Hasbro!

Aww man, that sucks and is really inexcusable for them not to use a more stable plastic.

My hope Jawa and R5 D4
My guess Sandtroopers 2 pack probably with floating droid.

Let's hope.  I'd love some background characters to be sprinkled throughout, but I think they might stick with the big characters.

All three OT figures will be easily modded for easy customs.  I'm down for at least 3 of each. Maul is the only one that won't yield parts to be able to reused for different future figures.

So that's why we need to spend 40 Billion on F-35 stealth fighters.  Now that makes sense. Those Danes.
