The Toy Fair Exclusives usually are actually limited items. Some have sold faster than others in the past but they do usually go faster than other figures. I probably am going to get Luke disguised as a Storm Trooper for sure. The price is about what I expected even though its a bit more than I'd like it to be. Hopefully we get a Han to pair with him soon. Agent Hill is tempting to me just because she looks great but the only other SHIELD agent I have is Black Widow.

I've been drooling over those Tweeterhead maquettes for a while now. I have a soft spot in my heart for Pfeiffer as Catwoman, so I couldn't pass on this one. It's the most expensive collectible I've ever purchased, but at least I have six months to save up.

I don't need an Agent Hill, but I already have a Widow and Coulson... argh. And I don't even have a Fury...

Probably going to get this one. I've always liked Rudd and the suit looks cool.

Quick question for any BigBadToyStore.com customers on here: Can you cancel a pre-order with them any time before the item is released (even if it's six months later) and not get charged anything? I'd like to reserve an item, but don't want to be stuck paying a restocking fee if I eventually find it cheaper elsewhere.

Their policy states: "No cancellations will be acepted after 15 days of the product purchase. This policy applies only to items that have not yet shipped." Does that mean pre-orders as well? Also, is there a way to remove your payment info from their system after placing an order?

I'm not overly familiar with BBTS' policies but I've pre-ordered items there and cancelled with no penalty charged in the past.

I've ordered a ton of stuff from BBTS. What they are saying is when your pre-ordered item comes in stock, after 15 days you can't cancel/return it. If it's defective or broken then I think they allow it. I've cancelled many a pre-ordered item from them with no penalty/fee. Note: this doesn't affect items that have a pre-order deposit. I'm not sure what the rules are for that. Shoot them an email to be sure of their policies: [email protected]

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
^ Thanks. Sent them an e-mail and got what looked like a cut/paste response from their FAQ. The only thing I learned was that the 15 day cancellation policy refers to items being held in the "Pile of Loot" feature. I wrote back and eventually got someone to answer my original questions: Yes, you can cancel a pre-order at any time before the item arrives in their warehouse and not be charged a penalty. You can only have your payment info removed from their system by contacting customer service. After the WBShop fiasco, I try to keep my card number stored on as few websites as possible -- but PayPal is only allowed for in-stock items and would certainly complicate matters with a pre-order anyway.

BBTS is one of the only toy/collectible e-tailers I've come across that don't require a deposit on the more expensive items and makes it easy to cancel before shipment without any headaches. I remember pre-ordering some Star Wars mini busts back in the day from Things From Another World. I ended up losing my job a couple months later and tried to cancel the order with them. They basically told me to screw off and said that they had already paid the distributer based on my pre-order and flat-out refused cancel anything. Entertainment Earth was better the one time I had to cancel something with them -- but they still asked for a written explanation concerning why I didn't want the item anymore. I thought that was unnecessary.

Argh, okay, I ordered Maria Hill, since I doubt they make another one (but who knows?). I hope they make another Fury someday.

I didn't see Ant Man yet, but is that on track for a sequel or for him to be included in future Avengers movies?

Mike86 07-17-15 04:26 PM

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
I haven't seen it yet but:

Spoiler:
Ant-Man is supposed to be in Captain America: Civil War. Its possible that we might get another Ant-Man down the line but I think I'll still get this figure. Probably going to wait for it to be coupon eligible though.


The Sandtrooper just went eligible for Sideshow's July coupon. Not sure if I want to order that or the Luke in Storm Trooper disguise first. I'll probably get them both eventually though. :lol:

You want to get both and also buy me one of each.

Man, I am glad I am not a die hard Marvel fan.

Mike86 07-17-15 05:21 PM

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
Yeah I pick and choose the Marvel figures I want. I can't imagine being a die hard Marvel fan as there's just so many figures to choose from. Its pretty much impossible to try and get them all unless you have unlimited funds. I'm just picking up core Avengers or favorite characters.

Right now my focus is basically on Star Wars. Of all the stuff I have pre-ordered all but two figures (Batman Returns Batman and Wayne set and Temple of Doom Indiana Jones) are Star Wars items.

looks like they've built the entire Falcon 1/6th scale!

Recently Hot Toys has showcased an impressive 1/6th scale Millennium Falcon cockpit at San Diego Comic-Con which has already fascinated many Star Wars fans! But we are not stopping there yet, as a complete and highly detail 1/6th scale Millennium Falcon measuring close to 18 feet (5.5 meters) long by 12 feet (3.7 meters) wide will actually be making an appearance at ACGHK! Its sheer astonishing presence will surely captured any fansí attention!

I saw that. Very cool but its only a one off deal for some Toy Fairs overseas I believe. There's no realistic way they could actually mass produce and sell that to normal consumers.

I'm now imagining them splitting off the Millenium Falcon into pieces and selling them with the figures... can't imagine the cost, but a kind of "build a figure/ship" for Hot Toys.

Anyone collect transformers? I was thinking of getting into it when I saw the new devastator. Man, this is what I wanted the most when I was a kid!

Save your money for the Takara version. It's better than the Hasbro and SDCC version of Devastator. It has G1 guns for the all the bots, better paint apps (and no vac metal to chip off), new elbow joints for some of the bots, and a Devastor head that has a visor that can be raised and lowered for whatever your desired look. Check the pics.

NOTE: You have pics of two different Devestators. 1st pic (Of Devastator with Masterpiece Prime) is the Hasbro version. 2nd pic is the SDCC version (you can tell by the Purple vac metal on the figures)

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
Oh I know. Those were just two pics I grabbed real quick. The Takara version sounds like the one I want. The CC exclusive is $300 at BBTS while the Takara is $219.

fujishig 07-21-15 12:29 PM

Re: 1 and Only Movie Figures and Collectibles Discussion
 
Well, the CC version is kind of a rip off, the regular retail price for Hasbro's Devastator is $149 or so, which makes you think twice about the increased price of the Takara. They are also redoing all of the G1 combiners (so far: Menasor, Defensor, Superion), though Devastator is much bigger than them. And if you really have the cash, there are a ton of third party options...

I think the SDCC version will be available on hasbrotoyshop.com on July 28. I remember the SDCC Generations Metroplex being available on there for the same price as the regular Hasbro version but it sold out quickly. Hopefully that's the case with Devastator.

The 3rd Party scene for Transformers is amazing. Multiple companies making great products. Don't have to wait for Takara/Hasbro anymore but I do prefer the Takara versions of a character rather than the 3rd party. For instance Masterpiece Ultra Magnus was far better in my opinion that KFC Citizen Stack. Obvious exception is Masterpiece Megatron versus X-Transbots Apollyon. Although I don't have that figure in hand yet. Sitting in my pile-o-loot at BBTS.

Personally I liked TFC Herecules take on Devastator since it integrated almost all of the combiner parts into the robots such as the treads becoming the forearms. I may not have been G1 accurate but still liked it. Most people prefered Maketoys Giant because it was much closer to G1. I have both so I can swap out based on my changing tastes. Let's see what Gravity Builder brings to the table for their devastator.

Leia is a day one pre-order for me. Also sort of want the Pepper/Mark IX set but I'll wait and see how much it costs. If it's too much I'll probably still get the single release of Pepper.
