Still umming and ahhing about pre ordering a Scar pred, I know the movies were terrible but hes one of my favorite predator designs. Also probably going to pre order this soon:



Recently got the 3A white Commando spartan from Halo reach, its an impressive figure, but the legs aren't real steady and.... yeah i'm a bit disappointed, thinking of packing it away or selling it.

Now I'm curious to see how that one will turn out.

In other news... Hot Toys have a figure of Roadblock from GI Joe: Retaliation.

Anyone here have any experience or opinions on the Sideshow Bond 1/6 figures? I'm kind of tempted to get one or two if I can find them for a good price, but I'm hesitant because of the 'plasticky' look of the head moulds (paint job, maybe?) - some photos make them look better than others.

Hope that works out for you man, I'd love to see your thoughts about it; this is what I'm "Umming & Ahhing" about at the moment:




I'm going to hold off on preordering him until I've heard the collective judgement, wisdom & opinion of Preorder66: The Highend Toy Podcast - EP46 first though ; it's a lot of dough for a figure and as such I'd like to know whether or not it'd just be better/smarter to go for this or wait out for Hasbro's 6" Black Label figures.

The black series figures look great i'm in the middle of assembling a cast of favourite movie characters in that scale, marvel diamond select, neca etc. Great news

Still contemplating the HT Scar predator. Anyone else getting it or pre ordered?? I know most people prefer the OG preds but theres something about the extra armor that seems cool.

I'm not a big enough Predator fan to be collecting the figures, but I'm with you on the armour - it makes the Predators look bulkier/more imposing (although without it, they definitely look more exotic/alien) - plus, it makes sense in-universe, since they're hunting prey with corrosive blood!

I say go for it - sooner or later, the prices will start to climb.
