That never happens. Just yesterday I stated to someone that I'm slowing down. Then a couple hours later a great deal came up on a grail piece for ALL THE MONEY. So I pulled the trigger. I'm a child.....and the universe won't stop tempting me!:rofl:

When a man is tired of toys he is tired of life.

But I really must stay off e-bay.

I preordered this with bbts. I'm tired of asking sideshow for their 'pad out option' and always get rejected with the bs response 'the box is too big'. It ends up getting it mailed with the brown shipper box with the label slapped on and dents, tears, scrapes etc. I've even offered to pay extra no matter the cost on the shipping. My QS HT Ironman MK45 showed up with a hole on the side and dents all over the place, even a foot mark. My asajj ventress was bent in half, my ht metal gear revengance raiden was demolished on one side and other figures too.

The price with BBTS for this was 275$ including their shipping cost, tax ($250 + $21 tax + $4 ship) and sideshow is $272 ($250 + $22 ship). I'd rather pay the extra $3 with bbts and not get my item banged up, rather than offer to pay sideshow $40+ for shipping with padded out option only to get rejected.

The only time I get stuck using sideshow is if I have like 25$ or more in credit.

Checkout Toy Dojo. They double box (+$7) and dont charge tax. $150+ orders are shipped free. Great service all the way around. I'm in CA so SS and BBTS are last resorts as they both charge tax and shipping is ridiculous from SS.

Whatever that is on their chest is terrible. Looks like some sort or corporation logo. 

Tell that to the creators of the movie.. Maybe its Johnson's idea.

Why do the stormtroopers have Pedipalps?

Then why does the 31f ,31c and 31j have these in the head designs? Maybe to copy the Varja from Frontier and to look more aggressive.

This is just speculation on my part. :rolleyes:

They'd look much less weird if they were on the sides or not curly (like the 31) rather than front and center. But that's just my opinion.

I don't like any of the VF-31 head designs, but they're a damn sight better than those hideous Jet Troopers.  Yuck.

Plus, the visibility must really suck in those helmets.  <_<

Well at least the Predator has those claw-like mandibles and their not too garrish looking, however you don't want to mess with them either. 

I bet those troopers helmets have enhanced slight capabilities like the Stormies. The other question is, can they aim and fire the blasters and not miss (we all know that Stormies can't aim properly). :crazy:

Threezero Destiny 2 figures. Pre-orders are on the 16th and pricing not determined yet

I'm really bothered by the fact that the two guns it comes with occupy the same inventory slot and therefore can't be equipped at the same time; also Dawnblade and Coldheart don't synergize at all with Nezarec's Sin.

:edit:

I like the way it looks, but I don't wan a generic guardian, I want MY guardian.

Given the size of this creature in the Mandalore, Sideshow has listed it actually as "Life Sized", however does it fit with in the confines in this particular range? :wacko:

https://news.toyark.com/2020/01/30/the-mandalorian-the-child-aka-baby-yoda-life-size-figure-by-sideshow-377321

For $350 USD, to be released in August to November of this year and has the shifter knob that the Mandalore has given him. Pre-orders are up on Sideshow.

Guess what's new for Hot Toys?

As per Toyark's post this morning...

https://news.toyark.com/2020/01/31/the-mandalorian-hot-toys-announces-plans-for-the-child-collectibles-377455

"The adorable Child with big ears and large eyes is expected to arrive, joining Hot Toys as the incredibly accurate life-size collectible, quarter & one sixth scale collectible and brand new Cosbaby figures that will capture the hearts of many! Stay tuned to our upcoming announcements for the acclaimed line-up inspired by The Mandalorian, Star Wars first live-action series."

Will "Baby Yoda" be a fad and then fade off like the Porgs and BB8?? :unsure:

Judging by how short the attention span of people nowadays and how fast trend can be replaced with a new one, yes.
