I didn't think I needed much more of a title as most of us are now sitting on pins and needles hoping to see this get funded so we can have our biggest collectible yet. I try not to go to HasLab and get too excited. It almost feels like the night before Christmas all over again! Click here to go to our forums and let us know what you think.

Gentle Giant shares Boba Fett Statue Preorder... -- Posted by Tamer on Friday, February 23 2018
"The most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy joins Gentle Giant Ltd.’s 1:8th scale Collector’s Gallery statue line. Arguably, one of the most popular Star Wars characters in the Star Wars saga, Boba Fett exudes “dangerous and cool” in this new statue in the Collector’s Gallery collection. Every dent in his armor tells a story, every chip in his paint is another victory for this ruthless hunter.
Clad in his Mandalorian, Empire Strikes Back era armor with his rifle and his blaster, here Fett is seen standing casually on top of his most recent prize, a Wampa skull. The fearsome Boba Fett awaits his next bounty to collect, and he always gets his mark with NO DISINTEGRATIONS!
Boba Fett is the fifth statue in our new 1:8th Collector’s Gallery line, and fourth in our Bounty Hunter series, celebrating over 40 years of the Star Wars universe. Each limited edition Boba Fett statue is hand-painted and piece is cast in high quality poly-resin with crisp details such as his range finder, rocket pack, and actual braided Wookie scalps.*
This statue also comes individually numbered with a matching certificate of authenticity. Boba Fett is the perfect centerpiece to your bounty hunter statue collection."

1,692 with 40 days to go on the Sail Barge! -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, February 22 2018
Well like the title says we have 40 days left for this start up campaign to get 5,000 backers. I hope this initial strong start doesn't forecast a slow down. We need to make this happen and not just to get a Sail Barge (which face it is awesome), but for other potential large offerings down the road so we can get them in the correct scale. I mean can anyone think of a too scale AT-M6? Click here to go reserve yours today.
And please leave you comments and thoughts on this vehicle and how Hasbro has launched it in our forums!

Ron Hembling shares new WWII Diorama... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, February 22 2018
The figure is from Dragon Models and was painted with Vallejo, AK interactive paints and weathered with pastel chalks.
The base is made from foam board for the lower section of the base then I used blue foam to scratch build the floor and column. The debri is a mix of sand a ripped up blue foam and once it dried the base was painted and weathered with Vallejo Paints.
He is really doing some great WW2 Work!

Darth Sinister shares a neat paint tip... -- Posted by Tamer on Thursday, February 22 2018
"If you wear contact lenses you probably have an over abundance of these things lying around. When I'm painting a fig a lot of the time I mix colors to make a custom color. When everything is done I sometimes have to do a "last look" and always there are some touch ups needed."
It sounds like the paint lasts for a good while when stored this way too!
Every few years, Toys R Us refreshes their "Animal Planet" offerings. This new set replaces an earlier set consisting of a different, smaller tower and an Allosaurus. This set contains a brand new (to the US anyway) dinosaur, a new dinosaur hatchling, and a spectacular new (as far as I am aware of anyway) tower playset. The figure, helicopter and remaining accessories are all recycled from previous offerings."
This is the least, but certainly not the least of Dan's new Animal Planet Reviews. Good stuff folks.
Every few years, Toys R Us refreshes their "Animal Planet" offerings. This new set replaces an earlier set consisting of a larger capture vehicle and a Therizinasaurus. This set contains a brand new dinosaur, a new dinosaur hatchling and a new capture vehicle. The figure and remaining accessories are all recycled from previous offerings."
Dan has sure taken the time to consider this offering from all angles which you will see when you click through.
As per usual, Toys R Us refreshes their various "Animal Planet" offerings every 2 years or so. This third version of this particular set replaces the miniature Humpback Whale (which itself replaced the previous Giant Squid) with a Goblin Shark (a rarely seen monstrous looking deep sea shark making its debut in this line) and recolors the formerly white armored dive suit red. The included figure and accessories are all recycled from previous versions of this set. As all of the accessories, figure and the vehicle have been covered in my previous reviews, I will focus this review of the Goblin Shark itself."
Once again just a small sampling for his full editorial review.
