Mmmm, so much awesome in those LOC figs!
Yes, very nice..
That SW Clone Pilot looks goofy in robot mode...
Also... When did Bill change the name of his online store?
NM, it's not even a store
I feel out of the loop.
I was so close to skipping the entire SWTF line, and then they came out with that bad-ass ARC-170 repaint.
I imagine a bunch of folks are gonna hate it for the striping, but I freakin' love it. And the mold was the only SWTF that really impressed me anyways.
I don't understand the logic for making Vader a Jedi Starfighter. The repainted ARC-170 though is bad ass. It's based on the Clone Wars cartoon. I think it was Mace's troopers who had that ship.
Any idea when the SWTF line's going to end? It's really taking up a lot of retail shelf space where otherwise good TF's like Cybertron (minus the horrid Menasor) or Classics could be.
I kinda like Fireflight and Trypticon...Lio is nice also.
Ah, I do love me some new LoCs... I still wish it was Octane instead of Fireflight but cant have everything... Now I'm wondering what the future waves of LoCs will be like. If they're willing, I'd like to see the size class used for new Minibots instead of just LoC repaints. Classics Windcharger, Runamuck, Beachcomber, Cosmos, that kind of thing.
For the new Star Wars TFs... lazy. I want to see more from the line and hopefully some improved mechanics to the toys instead of a second remold of the Obi Wan figure and repaints.
Really? Because every store I got to has them with Star Wars stuff. I've never once seen them located with the TF's. That includes multiple Wal-Marts, Targets, TRU's and K-Marts.
I think it's a blog he now maintains besides his store.
Similar to how Adam Pawlus from Entertainment Earth has his own site at 16bit.com.
Read Star Wars: -Dark Lord- The Rise of Darth Vader, by James Luceno. In it Vader flies a modified Jedi Starfighter.
Just added Metroplex w/ Bonus Clocker:
All of the TRU's where I live put the SWTFs on the TF pegs. Therefore, the TF stocking has been practically nonexistent since the SW figures aren't selling.
Targets are often the same way.
I think the 15$ price point may be a factor in them not moving here.
Once again I'll probably get Trypticon and leave it in the package, just since I love the name and there hasn't been a Trypticon TF in 20 years....as for the SWTF, the ARC fighter looks good but I already have the original..and while it's the best deluxe mold in the line (though thats not saying much) I'm still not going to get it again.
Nothing but repaints? Blech.
I'm liking the LoC figures, hope we see some now molds down the way. Now, as for the SW stuff im not to big on and never was, they just dont look all that good.
Nice round of repaints. No interest in any of it for me, however i wish i would have got metroplex with that free clocker. ah well. Do all the classics have the raised faction symbol on the top of the blister?
