The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: December 4, 2016, 08:07 AM »
The TVC Sandtrooper (if that's what will be getting reissued) wasn't a terrible figure.  Although the helmet doesn't look quite as sharp as this current 5 POA Stormtrooper that's currently in circulation.

But where are the NEW characters in this line?  It seems like every other wave is reissues.  I've been hoping that we might get some good SA versions of some classic characters.  Is Hasbro holding out for next year with the 40th Anniversary?  You have to wonder.

There's a Facebook Live video stream running with the ROGUE ONE cast and director Gareth Edwards right now.  And they're about to debut a new featurette.

Oddly absent?  Jiang Wen.  I wonder if it's because he got a little bit too detailed at the Celebration Europe panel?

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

You mean like this?
55187090 SW R1 SHORETROOPER CAPTAIN AND BISTAN

Also of interest on the Rogue One front?

SW RI DC UNI PILOT AND SHK TROOP YELLOW


Oh.  And what's this?

SW E8 DC VICTOR GUARD AND TANGO RED
SW E8 FX FOXTROT 1 BLUE LIGHTSABER

I would give the VHTF crown to the trio of Bastila, Ponda Baba and the Echo Base Rebel Trooper.  Thankfully Bastila got reissued down the line and that helped a lot of people. 

I think Tarkin would be a good choice for a reissue, too.  Well, just because.  A Sandtrooper reissue makes sense as well, given what we've seen of the Imperial troops on Jedha.

It absolutely makes sense to get a Stormtrooper back into circulation.  Especially since ROGUE ONE is just chocked full of them.  But the question is invariably WHICH VERSION?

I can also see the case for Ponda Baba since that figure had a very limited run at retail.  As for Boba Fett?  Okay.  When I first saw the BF I actually thought "Bib Fortuna?  REALLY?!?!"  Boba makes more sense though.  He just continues to sell, and you need a solid seller to help carry the line.  I'm curious if it's going to be a TESB version or the ROTJ costume. 

But the Tusken Raider?  Eh.  I'm a little less enthused about that one.

I picked up an ERG, Deathtrooper Specialist and FO Stormtrooper today.  And I was also very surprised to see the 3.75" Black Series Vader turning up in stores again. 

Considering how much of wave 4 that I saw in stores today, I think Vader may have come from those cases, because I have not seen reports of him turning up in the wave 5 or 6 cases.  It might make sense to get an SA version of Vader back in circulation again considering his role in ROGUE ONE, but it's too bad that the 3.75" Black Series version is from TESB/ROTJ and not ANH.

23
I might take you up on that.  Let's take it to PM's.

Very cool segment on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Felicity Jones was on as the guest, and she did a fight choreography sequence with Jimmy. And of course there was a clip! Great stuff from a chase/fight sequence on what appeared to be Jedha.

Felicity Jones Demos Her Badass Star Wars Fight Moves on Jimmy and clip.

And I have to say, the music really works for me!

I didn't run a price check.  But the package is the same size as the mainline 2-packs.  The price in the photo is probably from the 6" figures.  This particular store was just a mess. 

26
Yeah, it's a total repack.  I think it was totally designed as a Christmas/ birthday gift since all of these are still available individually.

27
This one seems to have flown in under the radar.  This WalMart exclusive 3-pack has the Eadu versions of Cassian Andor & Jyn Erso, plus K-2SO.

And Royal Guards, anyone?



When the teaser trailer first came out I saw this image and it was one of the most compelling images of the lot.  What was this?  Was it some sort of chamber for the Emporer since there are Royal Guards flanking it?  A bacta tank?  Some variation on Vader's meditation chamber?

But now I'm about 2/3rds of the way through Catalyst.  I'll admit it, I'm listening to it via Audible since time to read is at a premium, and listening to the audio book in the car has proven to be far cooler than I anticipated.  Be that as it may, the plot of the book has me convinced that this is in fact ***POSSIBLE MAJOR SPOILER*** a giant Kyber crystal that's being utilized for the Death Star's super-laser, as designed by Galen Erso.  And it seems very likely that the Empire has been mining these crystals on Jedha. ***POSSIBLE MAJOR SPOILER***

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 7
« on: November 26, 2016, 06:07 PM »
I'd like to see some more ERG's in those carry-forwards, but I'm also glad to see more Deathtroopers.  It's a very cool figure.

Definitely looking forward to the Scarif Stormtrooper.  It's a cool design that harkens back a little to the Clone Army, but also has hints of the Scout Trooper design as well.

As for wave 8?  Who know what to expect?!?!  Although I'd definitely like to see Chirrut Imwe represented.  A Stormtrooper would be welcome, too.  And then there's that X-wing pilot who looks sneakily like Brian Cranston....
