So... Yeah. Star Wars Black Series. Wave 2 came out and I got the two I wanted most. I was a bit worried for a while about Boba, though - I had preordered both he and Han on Amazon within the first few hours after they went up, and although I actually got Han a week earlier than his expected release date, I was told I wouldn't get Boba until December 30th. Now that didn't sit very well with me... So when he randomly shipped just a week after being told that, I was pretty darn happy.
Unfortunately he does illustrate my biggest gripe with this line rather well: the overuse of ratchet joints. The shoulders in particular just bug me because of where they lock in does not feel natural. Sure they're really soft ratchets and you can stop in-between, but they'll easily pop back into "proper" position.
And his overly gummy rifle is annoying (gummy weapons in general are). I can't for the life of me get him to hold it in a way where it doesn't just bend in half except for pointed straight down.
But he still looks good and Han is perfect in my opinion. He's exactly what I wanted.
I also got R2-D2 (and Transformers Generations Blitzwing) in this week... to my dorm room. But I'm at home for Thanksgiving soooo those'll have to wait until next month. I even picked standard shipping instead of Prime 2-day so they'd get there when I got back and they still arrived in 2 days haha.
Oh, and Samus! She's perfect, but man did I underestimate how tall she was. She towers over the other Nintendo figures (D-Arts & Figma) that I have. (Speaking of, when packing up Venusaur to take home, the ball joint on one of his vine whips just twisted clean off. ) I only wish she came with charge shot effect parts. Still, for my purposes, I'm done with Nintendo Figmas for now, so I'm happy. Now if only some of the older anime ones (*coughSAObecauseIwasstupidanddidn'tpreorderthemwhenIhadthechancecough*) weren't so darn expensive on the aftermarket...
