I'm not an action figure expert, but are there examples of well done die cast figures out there to know what might even be possible?

This just doesn't sound interesting to me...

I personally think the build-a-weapon thing is cool and am looking forward to it.  If Hasbro executes this like the did with build-a-droid I'm all for it.  They did a good job of having the assortments be all new figures so you didn't have to buy a repack just to get the one droid piece you needed.

I'm glad they're looking at a new spin on an old concept as well.  I would like BAD again, but we've had that a bunch of times and BAW sounds cool, at least for a limited time.

On the $15 premium line - I really hope they don't add extra "crap" just to justify the cost.  I really don't like clamshells being included.  I would dig extra accessories if that gets them to the right price point / value, but a clamshell is just a waste of my money.

Dave, I will take that 3PO - a buddy of mine is looking for one...

Sure.  I'll bring it to the meeting tomorrow night.

Got some extras from ordering cases.

3 3/4" C-3PO $12 + shipping
6" Cody and Han Stormtrooper - $18 each + shipping

PM if you're interested, otherwise I'll just put them on eBay.

Justin - I've got one of those cards in my collection from when I was a kid.  Never realized it until the 90s when I read an article on it and looked through my pile. 

Apparently they corrected the card, but the corrected version is quite a bit more rare than the excited version.

That is wrong though...everything will be revealed through leaks in the next few weeks...everything which is even more baffling about this to me

I would hope that Hasbro/Disney is aware of the leaks that are likely to happen.   I assume if they wanted to control the message they would have revealed stuff at SDCC.

I'm guessing its all driven by Disney's desire not to over promote the film at this point.  Which I'm 100% behind.  I would be fine with them not releasing any toys until Dec.

I know people want to be able to budget for their purchases, and I get that concern, but I'm guessing that is pretty far down Disney/Hasbro's list of issues.  I can't imagine anything is going to be hard to find and should linger for months, so hopefully everyone has the budget flexibility to fill their collections throughout the fall.

I've been itching to buy the teaser poster for TFA as well, but that isn't available for purchase, and is fairly lame in comparison to all the other teaser posters.  I wonder if this is all part of Disney's plan to keep things on simmer for as long as possible.

Alright, anyone seriously considering plunking down $185 or so with tax for this?! 

I don't even know where I'd be able to put it if I did think the price was reasonable...

I'd drop the cash in a heartbeat.  Although I have your same concern.  Where the heck would I put this?

As a result, I'm really unsure if I'm going to get this thing.

I'd much rather have a landspeeder than one of these, just because of the massive size.

Since they're doing half of The Ghost crew, I really hope they do them all before too long.  Finish them up with a Target exclusive pack at Christmas if necessary.

I would prefer there is no Obi-Wan / Vader confrontation.

I like the fact that he has been hiding under the radar protecting Luke (and Leia?).  And when they run in to each other at the Death Star its the first time they've actually encountered each other since Mustafar.

He would only come out of hiding for important issues.  Maybe if Luke/Leia are in danger.  Maybe he could develop a way to hide his presence from Vader/Emperor and while going on covert rebel missions slip out unseen just as Vader arrives.

TV-9D9 / Re: Upcoming SW Live-Action TV Show Discussion!
« on: July 9, 2015, 12:00 PM »
With all the SW Anthology movie talk going on, and seeing that Disney is putting Marvel stuff on Netflix (Daredevil) and TV (Agents of SHIELD) - has there been any more talk or speculation about a Star Wars live action serial?

I know its been discussed here in the past, but man would I love to see some story lines developed this way.  I think it would be super cool to do mini-series via Netflix.  Maybe 10-16 show story arcs.  Rogue Squadron.  Bounty hunters.  Smugglers.

They must have talked about it at Disney with what they're doing with Marvel.  I hope its just a matter of time until we get the same treatment with Star Wars.

If they go to $15 for MS, then the two figures better both be new and interesting.  No more new figure with a repacked Stormtrooper.

There is certainly the possibility that the graphic could be bogus.  But with the rumors of Ewan McGregor returning for an Obi-Wan film and previous rumors of Boba Fett being involved in an anthology film?  It gives you the sense that this could be legit.

This is the first I've heard of a Kenobi film.  Is that just someone trolling, informed speculation, or confirmed?

I'd love to see some Ewan as Kenobi, interacting with Yoda, and taking out an Inquisitor or two.  Heck, maybe even interacting with Ashoka.

Just got my case from HTS.  Along with the Hoth 6" figures.

All were awesome, except my Leia Boushh.  Holy cow is the paint job on mine terrible.  It looks like the paint job on the 3 3/4" figures.  Crossed eyes.  One high.  One low.  Ugh.

I just hope I eventually find this at retail, with a good paint job, that will allow me to exchange.

Picked up the Imperial Assault Carrier, but won't put it together until this weekend with the kids.

I agree, it looks really cool and is something that Hasbro isn't likely to ever get near.  It'll work great next to The Ghost, another ship Hasbro probably won't ever touch.

Interesting conversation and analysis.  I took a very different approach on my list and I'm glad Sabine is an option.  In some ways it will be curious to see if the Fanboy/Fangirl divide is that pronounced.  Sabine definitely has some momentum as she has gained six percent in less than 24 hours.  My guess is that she is the only one that can knock off Revan at this point.  Since the 3.75 figure left people wondering about the non removable helmet, I am down for her to get the 6 inch treatment, 

Is there a noticeable campaign for her now?

I saw Dave Filoni tweet his support for Sabine.  Not a surprise there though.
