Glad to finally have gotten Doallyn off of my ROTJ list, even if he wasn't named "Doallyn".

-Giant Mouse Droid

-Ishi Tib (Shasa Tiel)

-Cane Adiss


-Loje Nella

-Emporer Palpatine - SA, softgoods with throne & cane

-Sim Aloo- Imperial Dignitary

-Rebel Crewman - Home One

-Nik Sant - Rebel Commando

-Yoda - Force Spirit

One of the things I like about the 6" figure line is that it's still pretty fertile ground for new figures and the wishlists:
From last year:
Darth Vader
Yoda (Episode III)
Jabba the Hutt

2015's LIST
Darth Sidious (Episode III)
Darth Tyranus / Count Dooku
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Episode IV)
Jango Fett
Sand People / Tusken Raider
Qui-Gon Jinn
Princess Leia (Episode IV)
Rebel Fleet Trooper (Episode IV)

Is it me or does the Hulk look kind of grey in this shot of the trailer?  It could be an interesting development for the Hulk's character.  Or it could just be that the Hulk is just a little dirty or dusty in that particular scene.  But if Joss Whedon DOES want to explore the grey Hulk?  I think that could be fantastic!

Looks like things are going to get pretty dark.

The newest episode of STAR WARS REBELS is now available for viewing via the Disney XD app as well as on Disney XD On Demand.  This one is called "Idiots Array", which is the name of a particular hand in the Star Wars card game Sabacc.  And this episode features at least a couple of guest voice actors that you're bound to enjoy.  Check it out!

From Northern Cali  :o

So has that 087 06 1351 DPCI number carried over from The Vintage Collection all the way through to The Black Series?

I can verify the $12.99 price is in the NY/NJ metropolitan area. I saw it at a local Target store, too.  Even more galling is that the only TBS 3.75" figure in stock was a lone R5-G19, and that figure is based on a 6 or 7 year old mold from the B-A-F R5 droids.

One positive?  For now, at least, TRU is keeping their TBS 3.75" basic figures priced at $9.99 each.  I saw prices on those today, too.  And notably at the TRU store that's about 5 minutes from Toys R Us corporate HQ.  That store gets special attention from corporate due to it's proximity to all of the executive offices.  But if the rumors are true that the wholesale price has gone up by $2 per figure we're probably bound to see a price increase across the board.  Most likely that's going to happen after everyone gets done with their post-holiday season clearances and inventory.

It looks like the $12.99 is the base price for Target, and select stores selling at the $14+ that Jayson cited.  I know that I've see some pricing disparities between Target stores in the past. Figures at one store would be $9.99, and at the other store they would be $10.99. I'm not sure what the criteria has been for that. Maybe Target sees the clientele in some areas as more affluent and able to pay more. Or perhaps they use these particular stores as a testing ground to see what customers are willing to pay for certain items.

I'm waiting to see how Walmart, TRU and Kmart respond with their own pricing. Personally, I haven't been shopping at Target much at all for new figures.

Wow.  A full 2 1/2 months before the theatrical release?  I guess the licensing dollars are being given the greater consideration, and Igers comments that this is a $4 billion movie are going to hold sway on the direction for the franchise.

Sounds like a pretty reasonable explanation for the whole Hank / Janet / Hope lineage.  And if they go back through the years, I'm sure that a link to SHIELD is in there, too.

That's a pretty respectable class.  All of those pitchers had amazing careers.

Glad to see Biggio get in at last, too.  Can't believe the dumb baseball writers made a 3,000 hit guy wait through 3 years of HoF eligibility like that.

If it's not in America, it doesn't count.

AOTC in 3D was shown as part of a screening in honor of legendary special effects artist Dennis Muren.  That was held in San Rafael, California.  There's more about the film festival and Muren's other work here.

Rumors seem to be circulating about the casting of Captain Marvel / Carol Danvers. One name that's been popping up?  Emily Blunt. Marvel Studios seems to like her. And she was strongly considered for the role of the Black Widow, and reportedly turned it down because of scheduling issues.  She also was rumored to be up for the role of Peggy Carter in Captain America - The First Avenger

That's got to be a point of great debate.  Not just with JJ Abrams, but with Bob Iger (head of Disney), Kathleen Kennedy (head of Lucasfilm) as well as Hasbro, other licensees and all of the retailers.

You get the sense that the filmmakers want to preserve some sense of surprise.  That seems to be a mantra that has been coming from a lot of the cast.  And that's a different stance from what we saw during the PT era of films.  But there's also A LOT of money on the table when it comes to the licensed merchandise.

I think Hasbro and the other licensees are going to strike a balance.  The initial releases will probably be tailored in such a way that there will be some release that takes advantage of the holiday shopping season, while keeping things spoiler free.

A 6" starfighter?  That's got the potential to be enormous.
