I bought some of these cloaks that are made for Star Wars Black Series 6" figures

http://thefwoosh.com/2014/05/star-wa...tom-jedi-robes

Check them out!

Zulithe 07-12-2014 11:51 PM

So I got all of the new Mario Kart 8 figures from McDonalds and was looking them over

and I was looking super close and I am actually very impressed with the sculpting and paint apps on these toys which are basically "free" toys given away with meals (or for a little over $1 in most areas without the meal)

Mario for example, he has a lot of shapes and change of surface area on his face and hat, and yet they mange to still apply all of the paint perfectly. No misalignment, no missing paint, nothing.

Then I thought... okay, how can the paint on this little freebie toy be so good, yet we still get crap like this:

(Black Series 3.75 inch Yoda)

SERIOUSLY!? That $10 figure has less paint -- and CRAPPY paint at that -- than a mcdonalds toy...

Hasbro can shove their toys up their butts.

I'm still very interested in collecting the 6" black series figures but the paint problems have got to stop. There is no excuse if McDonalds can outdo them.

(btw, this applies to Playmates just as much! Hasbro isn't the main offender, Playmates is way worse)

Sure! I'll help!

The first pic is all from the comic pack line.
http://www.rebelscum.com/TLCcomicpacksWM091.asp

I've def seen that Twi'lek pilot, but I can't find her name. She IS from the comic pack line.
---
Second pic is Ishi Tib from the POFT line.
----
Third is Teebo from the Power Of The Jedi line. Not to be confused with the Power Of The Force (POTF) line.
----
Not sure on the fourth. It's a pilot for sure. I'll look into it.
-----
Fifth is a Build A Droid figure. I'm not sure which one.
----
Next is a Death Squad Commander. Prooooobably from the Saga line, (2010/11)
-----
Seventh is FX-7 from the POTJ line.
----
That Skiff guard is possibly from the BAD line. The Emperor and his chair I'm not too sure on. It may be from a POFT Cinema Scene. The Stormie is lost on me.

Use Rebelscum! It's an awesome website with a photo archive of every figure sorted by lines!

Thanks! I'll try to do a monthly run to Crowmags here on.

STUPID retailers. Stupid Hasbro.

Falconhood 07-22-2014 10:56 AM

the next 2-pack will be Leia and Greedo.

Zulithe 07-23-2014 09:38 AM

Now in stock for pre-order

http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/sta...258401-product

Better hurry. free shipping on $25 or more orders. they charge when they ship.

Need ideas on getting the order over that amount?

How about ordering agent venom too? Also in stock

Zulithe 08-05-2014 03:55 PM

Today at TRU i saw two speeder bikes and a jabba... AND I PASSED ON BOTH!!

The reason... I had ordered a speeder bike on amazon earlier in the day and it was already in the "shipping" stage... I came close to picking up one though so I'd have two BUT i had some other purchases so I decided to hold off... so far they haven't been that challenging to find so I can probably pick up a second speeder later and maybe even at below MSRP (that is the hope.)

As for jabba... I am REALLY hoping for a discount later this year because I think paying $40 for him when he comes with NO accessories (damn you, SDCC version...) just feels like price gouging to me.

But yeah guys... search TRU both of these figures are showing up now, they actually started showing up last week.

snake 08-12-2014 12:34 PM

Jabba is a major rip off. I wanted his SDCC version but I don't have 60 bucks and it's not worth it for that price. 40/45? Sure. But not 60.


Then there's the retail version which apparently follows Watto's selling methods of "more for less". You get a half empty box with Jabba.

Sucks because I really wanted Crumb.

MisfitKraang 08-13-2014 11:02 PM

I'm a huge Star Wars collector!!! I've been collecting since I was born and it's probably my biggest collection my latest acquisition was a Black Series Boba Fett my girlfriend was lucky enough to find:D

Falconhood 08-19-2014 09:46 PM

I need help, which of these is the one to get? I plan to get the better of the two when I go back
http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3842/1...e7daa9e7_z.jpg#starwars #bwing which one should I get? Need input! by SacredKnightOfTomorrow, on Flickr

Hey at least it isn't Jazwares.

I'm pretty sure that Build A Droid figure is Hk-47.

Zulithe 08-22-2014 09:30 AM

been looking closely on ebay for SDCC jabba to see if I can get a good deal... yeah right, pretty much impossible to get for under $90, if you are lucky there might be a listing for $99 that's about the best you can do.

still have not decided to skip it or not... i have some extra money, but should i buy sdcc jabba or just buy more LEGO? :p There are a lot of older Star Wars LEGO sets I need...

Zulithe 08-23-2014 03:12 AM

amazon has been getting lots of black series in stock the last few days

right now they have boba fett, stormtrooper and clone trooper all in stock for 22.99

Falconhood 08-23-2014 10:49 AM

$22.99 is cheaper than driving around looking for them at $19.99 + gas

Zulithe 08-27-2014 01:51 PM

scored SDCC Jabba for $66...

it hurt but I am trying to collect all the 6" black figures... I had to bite the bullet. At least the extras are pretty cool.

Davin 08-28-2014 08:44 PM

Anyone know release date info for the Bandai Movie Realization Vader? My Google fu must not be strong today, I can't find any info.

http://thefwoosh.com/2014/08/bandai-...on-darth-vader

A little pricey, but I must have it, too cool of a concept.

Falconhood 08-30-2014 08:39 PM

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5583/1...36d1c0db_z.jpgI just got my Darth Vader in Proto type Boba fat Star Wars figures at Walgreens!!!!! #starwars by SacredKnightOfTomorrow, on Flickr
look what I found today!

snake 08-30-2014 10:16 PM
