The Shoretrooper Captain/Bistan pack is a really, really safe bet at this point.  :-X

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: December 2, 2016, 10:05 AM »
I'm not so sure about Walrus Man.  Are people really asking for this figure to be reissued?

He sells for $30-40 loose on ebay; $80-90 carded.  There must still be some demand for him.

I would give the VHTF crown to the trio of Bastila, Ponda Baba and the Echo Base Rebel Trooper. 

From what I understand, this wave was one of the least produced waves in all of the TVC line. Bastilla was re-issued, now apparently Ponda.  Hoping Echo Base Rebel gets re-issued at some point too for those that missed him.

Sand Trooper. Hasbro loves them more than stormtroopers.

Or Snowtrooper.   Actually, I think I'd prefer a nice clean deco black-pauldron Sandtrooper over the plain Stormtrooper.  If we're going to get soaked for $13 to buy them, I'd rather get all the Sandtrooper gear than just a single E-11 accessory. ;)

Not a rumor, but a general report - Hasbro Pulse today confirms that all three Scarif Stormtrooper ranks will get 3.75" figures by the spring.   Good news!

Scarif Stormtrooper
- Rogue One 3.75" basic figure wave 3
- Walmart 3.75" Black Series wave 7

Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader
- Rogue One 3.75" figure 2-pack wave 1 (with Morrow)

Scarif Stormtrooper Captain

the one that comes in the Krennic wave doesn't have it.

I don't think K-2SO is shipping in the Krennic wave?  I believe Wave 2 is Krennic, Scariff Squad Leader, TFA C-3PO, Jedha Jyn, Eadu Cassian, and Deathtrooper.

I thought the "K-2SO with Blaster" images were just early photos and the blaster was dropped for release.  I don't know that anyone ever found one with the blaster at retail.  I guess maybe it could be coming someday (like Rey and the lightsbaer), but nothing yet.

This does not include the figure kits... you know Hasbro's lawyers aren't gonna let that happen. ;)

Saw this morning that Bandai has worked out the US license issues and will now sell their Star Wars model kits in the USA via their Bluefin Distribution group...

I have not watched an episode of this show since the skull-bashing premiere.  Every time I think I should catch up, I read up on the comments in here...

Did anybody else find that episode to be mostly craptastic?
Yeah, this was another pretty boring episode.
Even worse than last week's.

So yeah, pretty glad I haven't kept up I guess.

I'll be sure to just keep on reading here and start back up once something interesting and worthwhile happens. :P

It's one of those "repack that may have some very slight paint deco differences" type of figures.

You probably only need it if you're a "one of everything" or carded collector.  Or if you're willing to way overpay to army build him or something.

There were a few hints about Bernard along the way, but I was not expecting things to go down the way they did in that lab.  My wife is assuming that the host Ford is building down there must be a replacement for Teresa.Still trying to figure out who nabbed Elsie, hoping she's ok and not a goner too.

Agree 100% about Hopkins and the majority of the cast.  Mauve/Thandi Newton too the way she bobs back and forth in host mode and then with the two tech doofuses.  Solid work all around.

I really wanted to toss in some extra for some extra spud buckets, guns, and such, but the all-in was a $ stretch for me as it is.

Magnificent Seven was on cable last night... watched it and wanted these figures more than ever.

Pinched some pennies while watching Deadwood re-runs today (for more inspiration) and figured out a way to upgrade my pledge to the $800 "Gimme-Two-Steps" level, which includes 3x each of the ten basic figures from the all-in package.  That deal per figure just can't be beat in that package, especially adding in the bonus Vigilante figures, Buckaroo blanks, and gear packs.  I also had enough to add some extra $ to get the extra spuds and guns I wanted.

still a few hours left to pledge if you haven't already!!
