Wampa Cave / Star wars Toys Sales down
« on: January 18, 2018, 11:34:04 AM »
Article from The Star today:

https://www.thestar.com/business/2018/01/18/star-wars-toy-sales-fall-as-movie-tie-in-fatigue-sets-in.html

There's a lot of things to discuss here, but this comment struck a chord:

“Star Wars is a force to be reckoned with in the toy industry,” the brand’s owner, Walt Disney Co., said in a statement. “It remains the leading film-driven property for the entire year."

This quote seems to be a defense quote from the Mouse House justifying the amount of money they charged Hasbro et all for toy licenses.

I'm putting my bet on right now - when that license comes up for renewal in 2020, they won't get 1/10th the offer of what they got the last time from Hasbro.

I'm so tired of this kind of crap.  It irks me to no end.

Star Wars Art / Best artwork in the room...
« on: October 02, 2017, 07:44:33 PM »
So for my birthday, my 13yo sketched me this.  Pic doesn't truly do it justice since the lighting is horrendous to get on a framed pic...

What's more - she doesn't even like Star Wars (the younger one is a huge fan) but she put the effort into it and it was the best present I think I might have ever got!

The Toys - Snowtrooper Reviews! / Kylo Ren's Tie Silencer
« on: September 07, 2017, 06:28:38 PM »
I'm gona keep this short and to the point - If you buy any vehicles at all, do not miss this one!

It's got a great design, the "rocket firing that may not actually ever happen in a movie" are well hidden (you don't ever have to see them, and they take nothing away from the design). and the sheer blackness of the vehicles just makes it look badass.  To be perfectly honest, if the ship wasn't even in the movie, I'd still want it.

The Black Series (2013-???) / Last wave of 6" in Canada?
« on: August 04, 2017, 06:00:04 PM »
I'm not sure the 2017 Wave 3 (Qui-Gon, Lando and ERG and Tusken Raider with repack K-2S0 and Krennic) is gonna show up in numbers in Canada - possibly not on any shelves at all.  While I've seen a few on sale from eBay members in Canada, not really sure that they got theirs on the retails shelves.

With The Last Jedi figures on their way in less than 1 month and the clearance on all the figures on the shelves not actually clearing these out, If you are looking to get these figs I'd look to online retailers soon.

Wampa Cave / Premium Elite Figures
« on: July 14, 2017, 10:03:30 AM »
So The Nerdist is reporting new Premium Elite Figures.

Pound for pound so far I've found these to be the best deal out there - even at full price.  You get a 10-11" figure, super-posable and most with incredible likeness for $42 CDN.   It's a sweet spot right above a 6" figure (costing $30) and an Art FX figure (costing WAY more).  At least it was those prices for a single one beforehand.  Looks like the new ones are a two-pack?

I wish Disney would release more of these. A Jedi Luke would be tops on my list followed by Boba (of Course) and Han Bespin.

Scout Report / What did I just buy here?
« on: March 18, 2017, 09:28:52 PM »
I found these things for $8.99.  6" with what looks like 2 points of articulation (at the shoulders).  Like mini versions of 12" Figs.  Are there any others of these?  The painting is atrocious on Han (on like all 6 of the ones there).  Maul actually looks OK.

The Black Series (2013-???) / Am I alone here? The Red Inside sucks
« on: February 18, 2016, 01:28:13 PM »
Ok, I feel the need to cut past the obligatory "your supposed to open them, derp" comments.  I don't open.  And yes, the packaging matter when you display without opening.

Am I the only one who thinks the Black series inside packaging is just awful?  Aesthetically, It could be worse than the flat red they've chosen, but as a backdrop for figures, I think it's just awful.  The packaging previous (orange stripe or blue stripe) looks far superior.

But more than that, this is supposed to be a premium product.  The flat red just looks lazy.  I don't collect the 3.75 WM line (gawd I can't beleive they charge $5 more for that) but on both the 3.75" and 6" lines it's just .. well not good.  Disappointing, especially placed beside the older packaging for the 6".

I dearly hope they come up with something else soon.  I'm finding myself cutting back on this product simply because I can't stand to display these.
