And according to collectors it will fail and is further sign of the apocalypse.

Not every kid will have $100+ to drop on a bmf.  Falcon frenzy will need satiated.  I think kids will like something like this then.  I don't buy kids might.

That hero series falcon sold well here over the holidays.  I saw a guy make one into a model and it's really quite decent for the price.  Just not made to interact with 4" figures at all.  Still was a good toy on its own.

Yeah plus he's the most unique fig of the 3 clones and I dare say that didn't hurt his popularity either.

I'd personally like to see 06-07 levels of articulation return and a 9.99 price at most.

I love and still buy figs like the rots Royal guards, saga ATAT driver or Death Star gunner...  I'm fine with that being the "standard" on articularion.  Likewise if they want to do less on some and more on others that's fine too.

I can't say I like 5poa at all...  I prefer figures I can pose and enjoy more.  I like that but I also don't new a freakin artists maquette either.  I've said before, but for me that 30AC line was just a dream toy line.  Near perfection in every way.  And in other ways, perfect balance too. 

I will be buying some TFA but not much.  I'm not upset by that though either.  Toys just aren't important enough to me to have a meltdown over it as a topic.  I wanna buy stuff I like but I have other interests too, to spend on, so if Hasbro disappoints me I just shift $ elsewhere.

And some of it is kinda near looking too.  I'm sure I will wait for some sales and I have damn near $300 in points at Kmart so I don't plan on spending a lot either way, but I know I want some of the stuff I've seen so far.

If you were in this hobby any length you know there was worse.  To me 2002 was far worse.  Maybe it's just me though.

Noticed the Speederbike has that "Forest" aurabesh log and tree image on it.  Assuming this is something that plays out in the movie?  Sure seem to be pushing that with the toys at least.

Also noticing on closer inspection the reused parts from previous sculpts.

Not much in the shot is recognizable but I see a typical alliance pack there to the right. :)

The First Order landing craft on twitter was interesting.  A space Higgins boat.  Again I say the FO sure doesn't care about its soldiers any more than the old Empire did haha.

Just eyeballing they appear larger than 4" (figs are about 1/20 scale not 1/18) and smaller than 6"...  I'd say these are perhaps in the 1/15 or 1/16 realm, just by looking at them with little reference. 

Body gloved figures are the best to articulate.  The armor gaps help hide it all and give you a pretty straight forward guide to where you'd want to cut too.  I remember adding that one Vader Knee joint some figs to add knee articulation.  It was a perfect ball you just had to then pop into drilled holes.  :)

Hmmm I can't say I'm very excited really but I'm also not not excited, I guess?  I liked some of them and I'm curious to see all the other stuff at this point as I have to say some of the 5 POA surprised me.

I'm still not doing midnight madness and stuff.  I'm curious what vehicles will look like, TBS, exclusives...  I'm pumped to make a Phasma poseable. :)

I wish I knew wtf the build a things are.  Are they in the movie?  Hmmm

I'm left I think with more questions after today than I had when I didn't care?  Maybe that's it.

I won't go that far but sculpt and paint looked good on a few and I saw lots of custom potential.  My goal will be getting things on sale and enjoying this for what it is.  I think TBS is hanging on but "new" won't be in it for some months.  Just a funny feeling I have.  And I suspect TFA won't be a part of it for longer. :x


Finns coat is either really well sculpted or separate.  That was always a big buggaboo for me on 5 POA figs.  Skirt pieces and coats look like ass on the hips.  That Finn is way better looking than many previous figs in this general style.
