The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 5
« on: September 2, 2016, 10:33 AM »
One definitely fits for Rogue One

Absolutely!  We already saw the ERG's in the trailer.  I would love to see them mix it up, FWIW.  There's this rich "Legends" backstory for them about being this incredible unit of warriors.  But when it came time to actually see them do anything in ROTS, Yoda just levelled them.

I was actually thinking this one might be related to Episode 8.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Rebel U-Wing Fighter

The wings definitely make this vehicle look a lot bigger.  But seeing the pics of Cassian Andor standing next to the ship?  The size is way off.  And in order for it to have the side-by-side cockpit like we've seen in the trailer, and any sort of troop compartment in the lower portion of the fuselage, we would be looking at a significantly larger ship that would have to be 2 to 3 times as big as this.  That would translate to a significantly higher price tag, too.

Is it disappointing?  Absolutely.  I'd like to see something reasonably screen accurate.  But with the rising costs and associated pricing, I don't know how Hasbro could make a vehicle that might be on par with something like the Republic Gunship or ARC-170.

I'm probably going to pick one up eventually... if I can find one with a decent Cassian pack-in.  Oof.  Everytime a new "in-hand" pic pops up, the face deco on poor Cassian looks horrible. :-\

OMG.  The paint apps I've seen on every sample of Cassian Andor's eyes all seem like they're horrible.  WTF is up with this lately?  First there was the Joan Crawford/WM Black Series Leia, and now we've got Cassian Andor meets Marty Feldman!

I'm beginning to wonder based on some rumors surrounding a recent Episode 8 script leak might involve some of the characters in this wave.  Hmmm....

Krennic looks sharp!  And the Scarif Trooper is looking more and more like a variation on the ROTJ Scout Trooper to me.

AH!  And here we are.  With tomorrow's etailer listings we should have a clearer indication of what else is in the next wave.  I'm curious if they're going to remain largely focused on ROGUE ONE, or start to introduce a bunch of the figures that got unveiled at SDCC.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors

I expect the double dip with the Death Troopers.  And I can't really see myself buying 2 of those 2-packs with Pao & The Death Trooper.  I can hold off on any Death Trooper army building until those start turning up in the WalMart 3.75" Black Series around November or whenever the wave following Ahsoka & Ackbar turns up.

The Black Series 6" Figures / 6" Black Series - Rogue One Wave 2
« on: September 1, 2016, 03:51 PM »
A little bit surprised that a couple of the figures mentioned in the Hasbro press release escaped notice:

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Figure Assortment
(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Fall 2016)
Bring home the adventure from ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY in impressive detail with STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES figures. Each 6-inch scale figure features extensive articulation and realistic character design for the ultimate collector. Characters include JYN ERSO, CAPTAIN CASSIAN ANDOR, K-2SO, IMPERIAL DEATH TROOPER, DIRECTOR  KRENNIC, SCARIF STORMTROOPER SQUAD LEADER, and more. Each figure sold separately. Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com.


You had to expect to see Director Krennic in a Black Series 6" figure assortment.  And it's good to see the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader in there, too.

Hmmm, so who might Jim Broadbent be playing next season?  ???

I'm thinking one of the Maesters.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set
« on: August 31, 2016, 11:28 PM »
I cannot personally justify spending more than $200 for the AT-ACT.  The $300 price tag just puts this one out of reach.  I see that price point as a psychological barrier for toy buyers.

This isn't a bicycle or a gaming console.  And I don't care if it has the app control feature.  But I think that this price point is a big mistake, and I can't see the casual buyer spending more than $200 on this vehicle.

That's just out of hand.  I like the concept, but this price creep on big ticket items has just gotten out of hand.  There's just no way I can justify getting this AT-ACT at MSRP.  And even on sale or clearance it'll be very pricey.

There seems to be a second 6" Cassian Andor in the works.  Check out Going Rogue from The Official Site, because you can see him in his Rebel officer uniform in that video.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1
« on: August 31, 2016, 11:22 AM »
I think the case pack might be more like:

Jyn Erso (3)
Kylo Ren(2)
K-2SO (2)
Stormtrooper (2)
Imperial Ground Crew (1)
Kanan (1)
Sabine (1)

And no doubt, there are going to be revision mixes.  We've seen plenty of those.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1

It's about the ratios of product.  Just look at the lineup for this wave along with the Star Wars Universe 2-packs.

3.75" Basic Figure Wave 1
-4 x ROGUE ONE figures
-2 x REBELS figures
-1 x TFA figure

3.75" Universe 2-pack Wave 1
-2 x ROGUE ONE 2-packs
-1 x TFA 2-pack

The line largely focuses on the new movie, but serves the current animated series along with a few select offerings from the most recent Saga film.  It's going to be a fine balancing act with a new movie every year.  But this sort of line might be what works.
