  1. Lady Jaye is one of the best figures yet. I'd prefer Flint without the flak jacket. Although I guess it does make more sense than running around in a fancy uniform type shirt.
  2. The Colosseum is one of my favorite pieces of ancient architecture and this is a beautiful piece that I hope to see in person some day at a LEGO store. But I have to say that this just doesn't look fun to build. There's so much repetition due to the nature of the original structure. Thankfully, the dilapidated state would add some variation to what looks to be a tedious undertaking.
  3. I agree. Either go full-on classic with the doll hair, soft goods and classic Princess of Power cards or re-envision She-Ra in the style of the retro female figures with sculpted hair and no soft goods except maybe a cape.
  4. It would be more interesting if they did the old MotU figures that actually had engineering in them for all the fun gimmicks.
  5. Does The Witcher use witchcraft to get his swords out of the scabbards? Doesn't seem like his arms would be long enough. I don't know anything about the character so I don't know how accurate it is, but I have to say that it is a nice looking figure. Batman's cape makes it look more like the Watchmen character to me. Especially when the goggles are on it. The coloring on the Mandarine Spawn is nice as a variant but I'd prefer the more traditional colored version if I were to get one. When I think of Spawn or China I think of red.
  6. Why is his cape falling down his back? It is a beautiful cape. I also like the texture on the sides of the scabbard. I hadn't noticed that before.
  7. Assuming this line has a wave 4. I've yet to see Scarlet or the regular Heavy Duty, but I don't doubt the claim that they are peg warmers elsewhere. Seems like Duke and Snake-eyes have more appeal to the casual buyers and non-completists. Putting these figures in wave 3 can end up hurting everyone. The online retailers are going to be less interested in selling the individuals from the case since they'll be faced with a heap of unsold reissues. A better mix would be 2x each of Zartan & Cobra or 1x Zartan, 1x Snake-eyes and 2x Cobra. I'd be interested in a color change Zartan with Swamp Skier. That would hit the nostalgia button. Especially if you can take it apart.
  8. I was hoping for the more modern shirt look for Zartan. At least over the midriff. Doesn't really matter since this line is vaporware for me. All I've seen is a single Snake-Eyes, Duke and alternate Heavy Duty. I picked up the Snake-Eyes but ended up having to take it back since the knife wouldn't go into the sheath and he was floppy.
  9. I'm pretty sure that one is Stilgar. There's no reason for Leto to have a fremkit backpack or a crysknife. Leto's stillsuit is also shiny and new, but that is a detail that would probably be lost on this line.
  10. If I were to just get one figure it wouldn't be the Baron. I would want it to be an iconic representation of Maud'dib.
  11. Agreed. It would probably look much better with the pale skin. Looks like he has the ink vine whip. I was wondering why the trailer was showing a closeup of a cord - didn't occur to me what it is. I wonder if they'll add a scene with a confrontation between Rabban and Gurney in order give their expensive cast some more screen time. Having Rabban as the BAF will probably help to sell the more lackluster figures of the wave better than a little sandworm would have.
  12. I'm surprised more aren't closing between more game consoles going electronic delivery only and Wal-Mart seemingly taking a bigger piece of the collectible toy exclusives market. MotU Classics and the carded Joes would have been a good fit for GS. I think it is only a matter of time before all the consoles are electronic delivery only. I prefer a console with an optical disc slot since I tend to use a console for playing my old movies just as much as playing games. However, I do find it inconvenient having to constantly swap discs to verify that I own a game. My current console may very well be my last given that I don't really play games any more. The only thing I saw people doing at GS lately was selling old gear and games (for pennies on the dollar) or picking up their POP preorders.
  13. That Gurney is no ugly lump of a man. I'm working through the books for the third time and own the various versions of the 80s movie as well as the Sci-Fi series. I'm looking forward to seeing this one to see another take on adapting the story and interpreting the visuals. I like a lot of what I see - especially the body shields, repulsor effect when jumping down from a height, blue eyes and ornithopters. Lots of little visuals look to be taken from the book such as the palm trees on fire and the headboard on Paul's bed. The worm works for me given that they feed on plankton which makes a mouth full of sharp teeth kind of odd. I'd like to see the Baron with a bad toupee in his more public scenes since the red hair is a defining characteristic in the book. I feel that making it a bad toupee would work with his character - something for show that doesn't do a good job of hiding his real deficiencies. It will be interesting to see how they handle Feyd since he is kind of important in the first appearance of the Harkonnens in the book, although he doesn't do much of anything else until the parts of the books that will be in the second movie in this franchise. Maybe they'll just have him in the shadows. Not having any Corrinos in the first movie is fine since the Emperor and Princess don't actually appear in person until near the end of the book.
  14. Why does the picture have the Dune movie logo as a watermark? Does this mean that Dune figures are coming soon? I thought I had read that somewhere.
