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.
Oh, yeah, it is acting squirrelly, I'll have it looked into.
I liked the "Zero Hour" two part season finale. I'm glad that the show didn't get rid of Thrawn, who is such a strong character, the way that

Mostly grading and TVing: saw the girls basketball team come up one game short of a STATE TITLE (still a great season, ladies) and other sports and cartoons
And speaking of the least-surprising news in the history of sports news: a certain dad's son declares for the draft the very next day.
I'm going to start spoiler discussion.
I liked seeing Thrawn with Death Troopers.
So much for Fulcrum 2.0. But I don't trust
There's a lot to unpack in this 2-parter, "Zero Hour." I'll wait for others to see it... impatiently so. But I'll say, wow.
Today was supposed to have rain. Nope: the winds blew those clouds out and made it a bit "cool" (mid-60s IIRC). Tomorrow's NASCAR race should
I'm so glad the basketball gods colluded to remove UCLA so that we no longer have to hear from THAT DAD...or at least hear less from him.
Still have 1/2 the Elite 8 (but only a Kansas win would give me a single Final Four team), and the OSU women's team lost to ND. I'm now completely de-tourney'd.
