Well of course. Your spot now has your body heat in it. That's what the cat really desires.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 December 2020 - 12:23 PM)

The pictures when you google that are adorable, but unfortunately my cat hates cat-sized beds. He does like getting in the way on human-sized beds, chairs and sofas, though. If you get up, watch out, 'cuz your spot will be gone when you return.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 December 2020 - 09:01 AM)

I learned that the famed ikea cat bed actually IS available in canada, but they called it a doll bed up here for some reason.

*good week

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 December 2020 - 05:35 PM)

It's been a good work for The Hunt: got Netflix Bumblebee (suck it Walmart!) and stopped at Walgreens and found a lone Bluestreak. I'm pretty much done until new stuff rolls out in February

@  tigerhawk : (02 December 2020 - 03:53 PM)

There's some fab fandubs of comic scenes on Youtube, it's MTMTE/LL mostly but there's some great stuff such as Tarn learning of Megatron's defection and Megatron talking to Ravage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:31 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 November 2020 - 09:28 PM)

I will say, the blu ray remaster, especially the audio is pretty spot on. Watching it on Apple TV has been enlightening.

I do not overly care for the Bad Batch, but it will be interesting to see what the animated series will bring to the table.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:59 PM)

Alpha, Delta Squad, Omega Squad, and the Muunilinst 10 are quite the contrast to what we have at present in Disney canon.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 November 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Who else here read the pre-2008 Clone Commandos and ARC Troopers back in the day?

@  tigerhawk : (30 November 2020 - 05:04 PM)

Monoliths in Utah and Romania.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:11 PM)

Also, the face of the black redeco is painted gray.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:09 PM)

To be a little fair, the original was also lacking in more detailed color. The Telemocha Series figure fixed that.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2020 - 05:05 PM)

The unpainted face and all the greys make that look like a knockoff.

@  Sabrblade : (29 November 2020 - 05:01 PM)

One could headcanon this one as such.

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  tigerhawk : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

It was said on Instagram they were all getting the real Face ID scans. These might just be test shots and not the final products? Updated looks for later seasons would be nice. I won’t buy them all again either way. That box art is nice.

I’m curious if on the OT figures of ANH, ESB, and ROTJ will all go together in the artwork.

I don't personally want them to have digital printed faces b/c then Zeb wouldn't match the older figs.

 

Now if they did another set of the full crew from the end of Rebels all with digital printing, I might be tempted. As it is, I think this is a good compromise for those that missed the earlier runs without gouging those that have been around from the start.

Eh, I DID see pretty much everyone at retail at one point or another, and I don't recall the paint apps being all that terrible.  They weren't "digital prints", but they were still an improvement over some of the early figures.

 

I'm game, I never committed because I wasn't sure Hasbro would ever finish the crew.  Might as well get them all at once!  Also, I dig the new packaging.  Nice to see some people  changed jobs so we can move away from that minimalist crap that permeated the collector stuff the last few years.  Also, HA HA, to all the collectors who can no longer keep their numbering going :p

The numbering thing was always kind of odd to me. It helped if I knew a number someone was, but then it seemed like any exclusive figure didn't have a number so what was the point.

I like that SOMEBODY at Hasbro so saw fans were keeping the boxes with the numbes and how they were being displayed. Its nice added touch with the image.  Peopel are going to be upset when they stop doing it though.

It's a brilliant addition to the packaging, though.  Like the only one that I would normally spring for is Beskar Mando, but because the Stormtrooper's box fits in with the packaging mural, I'd be hard pressed to pass on it in the store just to complete the stoopid picture.

 

And I typically throw out the boxes, too, btw...

I normally throw away packaging myself but certain cases are within exception when called for. The new art on the side is almost there but considering all Im getting is going to be Zeb and Beskar Mando, this wont keep me from tossing it.

Now the exclusive Classified Snake Eyes from the Joe line, thats sticking around.

You answered your own question - red paint. You could probably paint a very thin white highlight along an edge to make it look like it's illuminated.

Walmart has listings for Black Series Mandalorian Loyalist, Mandalorian Supercommando complete with stylized Maul helmet, an Ahsoka helmeted Clone Trooper, and an end of Clone Wars Ahsoka. Sadly it seems Ahsoka is already sold out.

You all know that BMF reissue rumored about?  Turns out it was for Galaxy's Edge!  Available August 30th (because preorders sold out), The Smuggler's Run Millennium Falcon will be available from Disney and Target at a whopping $400.  But it's not just a reissue, it features Chewbacca, a bunch of Porgs, and an exclusive Honda Ohnaka figure.

And both radar dishes. Wow. Well hmmm. $500 got you the sail barge - a completely new, low-volume, 4' long toy. The BMF has had two mass-market releases so far. Yeah, this appears to have additional paint apps, but the additional figs don't add that much in the grand scheme - Chewie is on his what? fourth release of that particular sculpt? I guess they looked at recent Ebay sales and figured $200 under the going rate was a good deal.

 

I'm pretty sure I would've snagged one at $300 since mine has gotten so yellowed, but $400 puts it a bit high for me. Ah well - I don't have to decide for a bit. :D

Still available for pre-order as of 09:24 CT.

 

Despite my concerns, I went ahead and pulled the trigger. I'll sell my yellowed one once the new one arrives. If I can get 200 for the old one, I'll consider it a good price for the new one.

I mean, if nothing else, you could probably flip Hondo for anywhere between $50-75 if you really wanted a means of recouping your cost.

Yeah... it's tempting but I do want Hondo. He's supposed to be released carded in an upcoming wave so I might be able to take advantage of the impatient, sell him and pick him up again later, but if he didn't show up later I'd be bummed.
