Re: 5POA - Short Term Kneejerk or New Business Model?

Somehow, Hasbro has managed to simultaneously contradict itself and breathe some intriguing life into a line it seems intent on killing. For years, Hasbro responded to questions with the idea that new tooling is what pushed costs higher, and made making new characters in the quantities we desired un...

Re: 2012 Vintage 2-Packs: Endor AT-ST Crew and Ewok Scouts S

Of course the same item had different "on-shelf" dates in a Hasbro display. After all, it is a Hasbro display.

Re: 2012 Vintage Wave 6: Bespin Leia

I got my wave from BBTS Thursday afternoon.

The Sandtrooper is the real highlight. After about a thousand attempts at this character, Hasbro absolutely nailed this one. The weathering a spot-on perfect.

It also seems like EW Vader's cape is made of different material than past releases. I like it.

Re: 2012 Vintage 2-Packs: Endor AT-ST Crew and Ewok Scouts S

Nice to see Endor get some much-deserved love. I can't wait to get these sets, and I'm fortunate to have a KMart in my town. However, the selection of KMart is curious. I just purchased a B-Wing from KMart yesterday for the tidy price of $14.99. All past KMart exclusives haven't been worth a damn. T...

Re: Up and coming figures

I commented as a joke that the over/under price for this was $24.99. I have collected continually since 1995, and enjoy the PT figures as much as the OT. But on principle, this figure will not be in my collection. Hasbro's choice of an online retailer could not have possibly been worse. Hasbro has g...

Re: Droid Factory Wave 2 - Spring 2013

Unless the Yavin 4 Luke blows away the 2007 version, this entire wave is a pass for me.

Re: Droid Factory Wave 1 - Spring 2013

Don't we have enough sandtroopers already?

Other than Padme and possibly the Clone, this is a very uninspiring list.

Re: 2012 SDCC Discussion

That's a pretty sweet-looking Padme. Didn't realize how badly that version of the character needed an upgrade.

Those speeder bikes aren't going to last very long at retail.

Re: TPM Wave - Wal-Mart Exclusive

Not sure where the logic is in placing Ric Olie and a generic Naboo Pilot in the same wave. Both look great, but would be better served in coming out separatly.

Re: SDCC 2011 Predictions & Discussion

For at least the last 3 years, the general feeling in and around the forums is that SDCC was a huge letdown. I feel less let down by this year's stuff, mainly because I have been so letdown in the past. Great work, Hasbro! Lower your fans' expectations, and you'll feel the love!! And the Republic At...

Re: SDCC 2011 Predictions & Discussion

I'm pretty sure the podracer pack is all re-packs of older figures. I saw Gasgano in there, and he hasn't been released since '99. The rest have already come out single-carded at one time or another.

Re: SDCC 2011 Predictions & Discussion

Excellent breakdown. TPM is getting a much bigger push than I would have anticipated. I wonder if Hasbro will think they are "done" with TPM after this push with the 3D release is over. I find it odd that figures we've already seen samples of: Evazan, 5-1st clone, etc. went totally not ack...
