So, the way Sideshow has been presenting this figure has been confusing since its unveiling at Comic-Con. Tamashii Nations is a brand, or a company, or something that encompasses licenses while being owned or something by Bandai, and they've worked with Sideshow on this piece... or something. I dunno exactly, the sign had 5 company logos on it.
Anyway, I'm interested to see what they're going to do with this chogokin figure (die cast) in terms of price, it's got a lot of great sculpting so I'm tempted to pretend like I can afford it, but the reality is that A] as a die-cast figure with this level of movement and accuracy it's going to be unholy expensive (the Japanese price is about $400 or so) and also B] the sample at Comic-Con had a matte finish and so does this preview, and no matter how good the sculpting is a matte finish for C-3PO makes little sense to me, basically it's the Hoth look?
I'm also a little curious to see what they were talking about with the asymmetrical knee back sculpt as I don't see it in the prototype.
Weirdest part of this set: cards #66 and #67 have the same caption, with different images and card back wording.
One checkout, one register. That really slowed it down.
Oh, and the lines to the men's room were just as long if not longer than the ladies
Finished reading Cross Current and Riptide by Paul Kemp. Read Riptide first, but the plot made more sense after a point in Cross Current. Not bad SW novels.
These odd-colored borders just drive me nuts. All I want is a complete set; the color of the border doesn't matter to me.
I started buying/trading

Just a few minutes ago. Finally able to log in now.
I'm excited about it.
Inferno Squad and Phasma interest me the most.
