Thanks Jayson. 

I guess Target still has plenty of time to clean out the old inventory before then.

I wonder with the DPCI not changing for the 6" figures if we might see some leak early.

I hope Target puts these on sale otherwise there will be a lot of 6" figures getting moved to make room for new stock.

So has there been any official confirmation of a Force Friday this fall, and when exactly it is going to take place?

I'm a little surprised that Target hasn't started to clean out its pegs in preparation for the August reset, new assortments, etc.  I know the 6" figs are keeping the same DPCI, but do we know if the 3.75" figs are keeping the same DPCI or going to something new?

So using that logic it sounds like Dengar must not be "in the parking lot" yet.

I'm looking forward to the wrap up.  This sounds awesome!

It really wouldn't be that hard to require an email address, or use cookies, or a login, or any of a number of basic methods to limit voting to one per person.

How is it possible that TFA came out 7 months ago and there is no freaking LUKE SKYWALKER figure?

I would argue there isn't really a Leia figure either (limited distribution at Wal Mart barely counts), and she actually had multiple scenes, multiple lines, etc.   Both are iconic characters and have been ignored so far.

I know Hasbro isn't really taking questions anymore, or really communicating anything, but has anyone received an answer to the question about stands for the 6" figures?  I know they're included with the 6" figures in Japan.  Just curious if that is coming to the rest of the world, or if there are any plans to offer these as accessory packs like the 3.75" stands.

shipping is free on these IIRC Dave.  ???

That is what I had thought, but then I saw it was charging me shipping.  I should have looked closer as it then credited shipping.  ::)


I'll buy these, but agree that these should be more like $60 with their limited articulation.

I'm glad these are funky and different.  I was hoping for some different types of droids (power droid, protocol droids, etc.) mixed in, but this isn't too bad. 

I agree the packaging is cool.

Not sure if I should pre-order and pay $13 shipping, or take my chances and order these in November and hope for free shipping.

Is this just a packaging variation of what will be available at retail later this fall?

Adam loves astromechs, so I wouldn't be surprised if this assortment was astromech (or at least droid) heavy.

Nice!  Looking forward to some new stuff.  EE (and Adam Pawlus) have done well with their original exclusives (not just repaints) in the past.  I'm looking forward to this sight unseen.

I never saw those last couple of waves at retail.  I got half through and half through EE by having to buy a case.

Paul who?

Seriously, never heard of the guy.  I suppose as a show of solidarity, I'll continue to never visit JTA or know who he is.

The internet is a cesspool with good and bad apples floating around in it.  Collecting communities on the internet are no different.  I'm not trying to be dismissive of your point or request or observations, but best thing you could do is just not use sites like that and eventually all that'll be left there is people who do tolerate, or approve of that kind of behavior, and then they can have each other.

Nailed it.

There are probably hundreds of web sites, podcasts, etc. devoted to Star Wars and I frequent a very small handful of them.  JTA is not one of the sites I visit.

I know I'm not likely to be the first to know anything with that attitude, but so far I'm managed to avoid most of the narcissistic morons in the collecting community and still feel reasonably well informed.

Sure he makes us look bad, but I'm sure there are another dozen morons waiting to take his place.
