Re: Raylen's Diorama Parts For Collectors

Love your droid offerings. Question about the lightbulb droid: is the clear piece solid or hollow? Solid....i know what you're thinking. Can it be lit up? Yes, drill a hole for an LED through the bottom and butt it up against the clear part. the clear resin disperses the light. I did this for my ow...

Re: Hovertank

It's only $80?!? I expected $120 or more! :mrgreen: Has anyone seen the Hiya Toys APC from Aliens? I'd image this will be similar to that. But hopefully it gets produced...I hear the APC may not have sold enough pre-orders. :shock: :( That Aliens APC looks incredible. But its over $200 I believe. T...

Re: Hovertank

Most of the vehicles seem to lack pilots recently except for some of the 5 POA stuff so the lack of figure didn't surprise me. What does is the working treads. Don't get me wrong. Thats awesome but with Hasbro constantly pointing to tooling costs as a reason they can't do bigger vehicles its bafflin...

Re: Hovertank

I am incredibly excited for this! I had very high on my "to do" list to offer the hovertank as a kit cause many people wanted one. Glad I held off! And so agree the Scarif trooper needs rereleased

Re: Raylen's Diorama Parts For Collectors

NEW ITEM ALERT! I now have the "Hammerhead Bot" up for sale. The price is a bit higher than the other droids because I pre-assemble the arms. Due to the thin nature of them, I went with metal wire with resin elbows and claws. Knowing not everyone is gonna have the tools or skill to drill, ...

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

If you do anything in this hobby. do not give any $$$ to ebay/amazon scalpers. You can order/pre-order almost everything on toy sites now vs Oh... $300-600 for Wave 1 or 2 of the 40th figures. i laughed looking around today, I can get 3 snow troopers or at-at drivers for less than a 40th packaged R...

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

It's almost like they need some sort of store, like an online toy shop of some sort where they could sell their product directly to fans. A place that they could keep stocked all the time... Well they do technically have one, but the "stocked all the time" is where the problem lies. But i...

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

[/quote] The MM line existing, or any other product line someone doesn't buy, doesn't tend to impact the 3.75 lines - those will continue to be made regardless of what other lines Hasbro is working on.[/quote] I think what Chewy meant was in regards to shelf space, retailers have to decide what they...

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

Seems to need that a lot of the problem is they are trying to manage too many different scales and gimmicks and it's just too much crap for the retailers to try and keep up with. It's well past time to stop the nonsense, Hasbro. No more micro machines, end the 12" junk, and focus on 3.75"...

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

So I was really bored today. Enough that I did a toy run in an area rather out of the way for me. First stopped by Walmart. Typical selection as everywhere and I can add that to the list of stores that are not supporting the 40th Ann 6" line. No peg space allotted at all. Hopped over to TRU. Th...

Re: Recent Finds/Acquisitions: The Black Series

You should send that story to Hasbro because it showcases just how pathetic Walmart distribution is. :shock: I am very glad I got two Cassians from Walmart.com along time ago! Too right! Got my Cassian and 2 Scarifs online as well. Would love to find a few more for customs at the discount but at th...

Re: Recent Finds/Acquisitions: The Black Series

This weekend it was more of the same. Walmart - single 40th Ann Luke, Target - single 40th Ann Leia, TRU - still no peg space for 40 Ann AT ALL.

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

Perish the thought that TVC 2.0 will start like that because it will be DOA. I honestly think most of the carded completists from this hobby are gone, so Hasbro shouldn't expect repacks to fly of the pegs. This hobby and action figures sales have changed pretty drastically over the years, and Hasbr...
