Re: Recent Finds/Acquisitions: The Black Series

[quote="Jodo"]They didn't ring up at Centralia today either. :/

LOL When you said "Centralia", I couldn't help but think about the abandoned town here in PA. Pretty sure there's no Walmart there! LOL

Re: TLJ Purchases and Finds

Three Walmarts, 3 Roses each. Everything else, gone to the scalpers. Ladies and gentlemen, your new Constable Zuvio. There is no reason for this figure to be in this wave. https://scontent-dft4-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/21616434_10108570705993381_1604182674528687523_n.jpg?oh=ae9a2139de518022b3e9a2546...

Re: TLJ Purchases and Finds

I opened my BB Droid Factory set from the Disney parks today, and they are totally cool. The sphere bodies are weighted (Weebles-style) and the 2 casing halves come apart revealing a droid "core." The heads are also removable. Each core is colored different for each droid. BB-8 is the sam...

Re: TLJ Purchases and Finds

Had to make a trip for spray paint at Walmart and surprise! They had the WM 3.75" BS wave. Oddly enough 3 Lukes, 3 Roses, and only 1 of each guard. Surprised someone picked them up but not Luke. Haven't opened them yet but the paint apps on the FO execution are horrible. So, obviously no improv...

Re: Black Series: 6" Scale Figures

I know you weren't suggesting army building. Just that thinking as a business, you can sell more troopers than officers BECAUSE people army build. That's part of my explanation of the difference between generic troopers vs generic officers. Some of these multi packs are a bit baffling in their selec...

Re: Black Series: 6" Scale Figures

Fair enough, I suppose. But how is a generic officer any different from a generic trooper? Troopers are "armor" figures and generally considered more "cool". Want a figure or two to display with Vader for example? 99% of people would choose a stormtrooper (or two) over a generic...

Re: Black Series: 6" Scale Figures

For me, the 3 3/4" line will always be my go to. How far are they planning to take this line? When viewed through that lens, making a generic officer does come off as a poor choice. I see 6" as best served with main characters, in which case a Thrawn, Tarkin, Hux, etc makes sense. But a ge...

Re: Force Friday II (Sept. 1st)

Went to Walmart only for the fact that they MIGHT get their exclusive SA figures, otherwise I would have gone anywhere else. Didn't get them (no surprise). They got about three cases of the 6" Thrawn wave. Just one case of the 5 POA figures. Couple vehicles (no Awing) and the Rathar and Probe D...

Re: Raylen's Customs

Next I have Agent Kallus. This was a fun one. I used the body from the Imp Navy Commander. The armor was sculpted on along with the extra "ridge" he has on the gloves and boots. I was originally going to make a removable helmet but wasn't sure I could get it nice enough and the animated 5 ...

Re: Raylen's Customs

Three more customs down to add. First is one I've wanted to do for a long time. I'm not really a Jar Jar fan but for some reason the behind the scenes costume where Ahmed Best is wearing a Jar Jar head as a hat always struck me as hilarious. The trick with this custom is finding the right Jar Jar. T...

Re: Raylen's Diorama Parts For Collectors

Wow - the bar looks fantastic. And I like it without all the pipes for some reason a lot more. Leave it to the customer to decide how detailed they want to customize their own. The space station surface is great. I've seen those online before. My main interest would converting them to actual backgr...

Re: Raylen's Diorama Parts For Collectors

So here it is; The Cantina Distillery! Talk about a lot of parts. The full kit is 26 pieces! Now the full length is 11 inches but not everyone may be doing that big a diorama, so the counter is split in two and you can purchase just one half. If you get just half, the side you get may be random to a...

Re: Raylen's Diorama Parts For Collectors

Just a heads up! The cantina distillery should be up for order next week. I've started casting parts today. Need photos instructions, etc. Also, I will be previewing something else in the works!

Re: Black Series: 6" Scale Figures

My Walmart here restocked... the Rogue One wave(s)! Since the pegs are already clogged with Jyns and Cassians (and one very lonely Krennic), the new stuff, amounting to about nine or ten figures, was on the top shelf. I spotted (you guessed it) more Jyns and Cassians, as well as another Krennic and...
