Reminder that if you collect Bandai figures, you have no business complaining about Hasbro's declining quality
Fuck this apple and grape bullshit.
Just cherrypick shitlords. This year I got Kylo Ren black series and Pizza Spidey along with Imperialdramon and Kuuga renewal figuarts. All 4 are good figures, doesn't matter what brand.
While I do feel like 3.75 has been....screwed over the past few years in favor of the renewed interest in 6inch scale. Hasbro is uselly pretty good at finding whats bullshit put out by the bean counters and what fans want. I mean they restructured the G.I.Joe two line after fans complained and got some amazing figures from it.
So I'm willing to over look knowing they'll be fixed later in the line.
That being said making making the 3.75 line black line a walmart exclusive just boils my ass.
I'm pretty sure the guy making these threads really has autism. I talked to him over chat for a few weeks before he blocked me. He was really convincing, but I played along until he stopped messaging me and eventually blocked me.
nigga i aint that guy. im just a random anon who hates anything japanese
Go away Greg- or should I say, FAKE Greg. We all know the REAL Greg would be worshipping Hasbro and wanting them to acquire the license to the most TRUE and HONEST character ever, Sonic the Hedgehog, complete with real shitting action! And in glorious 5POA too!
How can anyone appreciate the figures in such shit quality?
Its like asking to bask in the scenery of Nazi Germany invading Paris France. Sure the location is nice but it really sucks for the French.
If this Greg fool was in LA as opposed to Vigin-(lol)-ia I'd totally invite him to try touching my newly acquired Marvel Legends Ghost Rider
I will kick your ass and make you eat my shit, then shit out my shit, then eat your shit that's made up of my shit that I made you eat.
That being said, I fucking love my new Ghost Rider and I'm hunting for a sweet chopper to put him on.
lol @ you guys blaming some guy named greg for making this thread when it was me and im not greg
>I will never see this on my Toys R Us shelves
>It'll just be endless Chewbaccas and Finns
>Maybe a Rey if I'm lucky
Fucking right? I'm so tired of seeing Finn's face everywhere I go now. It's not even the "lol black right?" shit that's been going on over and over...I am SICK of seeing that figure! At two Wal-Marts, two Targets, one TRU, a handfull of Walgreens, fuck Finn and his pegwarming ass.
Right. And the other thing is, it's not even just the Black Series. It's the same thing with the 12inch 5POA. Quite honestly, I might consider getting a Stormtrooper one. However, again, all I see anywhere is Finn.
Well, at least other figures are trickling in. I saw a Kylo Ren at some small business toy store, and the other day I got a Riot Control Stormtrooper and Poe two-pack. Though I really only bought it for the Stormtrooper.
Oh, but this the only the beginning. Just wait till the rest of the films come out and you'll be having various Finns and Reys warming up the pegs until they hit the clearance rack.
>other day I got a Riot Control Stormtrooper and Poe two-pack.
Where dod you get this? The fucking problem is hasbro hasnt revelaled any of their new assortments yet, to the point that wave 4 of the 3.75 figures is due out any tike now, and we have no fucking idea whats in it.
Quite honestly, I doubt that. I think everything, literally everything, will be sold out by the time the movie is out. Especially since it'd be just before Christmas, and parents would just buying whatever.
Chewbacca might be the exception. Because there's essentially nothing new about him. I'd expect even Grandpa Solo to sell, because at least he looks new. Chewbacca doesn't even look older.
I got them at a Target, there were like 4 of them there, so I picked up one. I was kind of shocked, because I've been keeping up with figure releases, and it felt like this came out of absolutely no where. And I don't think it was an exclusive, because it didn't have the sticker on it.
There's nothing different about the Stormtrooper other than the additional shield and stick (the shield does not appear removable.) but Poe seems to be the different one. As his upcoming figure has him in his X-Wing gear, not casual wear.
Because its a shithole of christcucks and /pol/tards. As much of a fucking obnoxious cunt i am, i fucking hate it here. Im either punching someone out and calling them a christian filth bitch one day, or screaming at someone for being a republicunt capitlist filth vermin the next. I need to get out of this hellhole.
Is the face the same horrendous sculpt?
>101 s Atlantic blvd, Alhambra, CA, 91801
>first Baptist daycare
Same, actually. The only figure I've not seen in any store around my city is the Stormtrooper.
Speaking of, when do those Walmart exclusive 3.75 inch Stormtroopers with the old articulation come out?
Like I said, it's exactly the same figure, right down to bad paint and shitty elbows. With the addition of the accesspries of course.
Actually, if anything, the shield makes that arm worse, as the way it's strapped on, the elbow has even less of a bend.
My bad, I assumed you were talking about the trooper.
I don't know for sure as I don't have the other Poe figure, but by the looks of images online, I think it's a different sculpt.
Oh, and word of advice, as I am no experiencing this with my figure, and it'll probably be the same for the other black series Poe. Do not put the helmet on. Any time you take it off it'll scratch the sides of his hair and take off some paint.
I don't understand why the first order trooper seems to be so hard to find. You'd think that Hasbro would know that people want the cool armored guys, not just for collecting but for those that want more than one for army building as well.
The easiest way is to firstly learn how to spell. second would be learn how to treat others like a normal people and not 'normie retards'. Third is to learn that you can't blackmail the entirety of hasbro. And lastly, if you truly want a direct method of influencing Hasbro's quality of toys; get an actual following of like minded people and make a well worded petition asking for better merchandise for adult collectors.
I know you and all other gregposters don't really care either way, because retarded shitposting is all you do and nothing will ever change that, but who knows.
Everyone cares about spelling and grammar. it's why everyone mocks you for your terrible spelling and grammar and why it is taught in basic schooling lessons.
But hey, you rather just mock people for being 'anal retard bastards' whatever that means.
Yes, I found mine at the Toy's R Us, in Sterling Heights, MI, a couple of days ago, they had like 5 sitting there. He was the only TFA black series figures besides Chewbaccaa and Finn they had there, of course.
Here's what I have so far. I got Kylo Ren and The First Order Stormtrooper on Force Friday at a Wal-Mart by me.
They had a Poe Dameron at another Wal-Mart but his face looked so poorly scuplted, and I had already bought the aforementioned Kylo & Trooper, and a bunch of other 3.75" figs, and I figured he wasn't going to be that rare, so I didn't buy him. Of course now I'm kicking myself because he was wave 2 and it was a mistake to either ship them out or put him on display on Force Friday and I can't find him anywhere.
I have seen a single Constable Zuvio at one store, but didn't care to get him. I want Guavian Enforcer and of course Phasma but haven't seen either of them anywhere. I went into a Target by me today looking for them (mostly Phasma at this point), and I saw Poe with Riot Stormtrooper and I picked them up because I had never even heard of this pair, let alone seen one, and just as I grabbed it, seconds later another guy came in the isle looking for Black Series figures that weren't Finn.
Really want Phasma and just kinda want Guavian Enforcer, but I don't want to buy them online, part of the fun of having them is the hunt to collect them - I go out a couple of times a week when I'm running other errands to look for them.
Definitely don't want Finn, Rey, or Chewbacca though.
One of the other listings of that I saw said it only had shoulder articulation.
Wait, how is the Snowtrooper a Toys R Us exclusive? I thought he was part of the wave.
> and I saw Poe with Riot Stormtrooper and I picked them up because I had never even heard of this pair, let alone seen one, and just as I grabbed it,
Nice to know I'm not the only one who felt that came out of the blue. Like I said earlier in the thread, there were like 4 on the shelves when I got mine. But then I went back to the store yesterday, and they were all gone. I'm wondering if they weren't intended to be put out just yet. Did you find it at a Toys R Us or a Target? (The latter is where I found mine, so I wanted to know if it was an exclusive or not.)
I also went to Toys R Us yesterday and they had the big Black Series Tie Fighter. Damn, that thing was giant. I think I'll hold off on that one though, there's a good chance one of my family members might send it to me for Christmas. And if not, oh well, I don't really have room for that giant thing in my dormroom anyway.
I'm the guy that posted the figures on the red blanket.
I got my Poe & Riot Stormtrooper at Target. But yeah, I know, I didn't even know about this pair, so I snatched it figuring I could return it if it wasn't that rare, but its a stormtrooper and Poe and both of those are hard to come by individually - and looking prices up on Ebay, it's going for at least $10-$20 over sale price, so that's good.
I saw the TIE Fighter at Grand Rapids (MI) Comic Con at one of the vendors a week and a half ago, and when I picked up my Snowtrooper from TRU, they had one there as well.
Right. And as far as I know, isn't the Poe that's getting released individually is in the uniform, anyway? So I think this figure of him in normal clothes is a bit better. I never really liked those uniforms, and they don't really look good unless you have a vehicle to put them with. But I doubt we're getting a 6inch scale Black Series X-wing anytime soon. But whatever, I think the Tie Fighter was the better choice for that anyway.
Next up; Black Series 6inch scale Millennium Falcon. That'd be awesome.
Hit the TRU closest to me this morning to find a Phasma - missed them by 30 minutes. TRU is opening at 9am for the holidays now instead of the usual 10 am.
Manager type lady said all "the collectors", as she put it, snatched up all of the new ones, except for one Poe. I did pick up an extra regular trooper, though.
Went down the road to another TRU, no new wave there at all, but they had a stack of the exclusive snowtrooper. Ah well, the hunt continues.
I'm wondering if I should get that, and try to trade it for a Phasma in a month or so if she's still hard to get.
