Just an update, Hasbro is taking our Top SIX figures, not just five.

Wow, they've really done a ton of these.

Fans are kinda spoiled.  :-X

I'd forgotten Duros won first...  I was with Steve, I thought it was the McTrooper.

I see some animosity towards ICMG on Twitter...  WTF?  He never pegwarmed.  I'd love a 6" one. 

Now, Jocasta, Yarna...  those sucked.

I'm getting my list tidied up pretty well here I think.

Got Stormie and R5/R2 in the mail today...

Do yourself a favor and order these.  Dare I say, skip getting R2 from Hasbro, get this one.  It looks pretty in-scale to me to the Hasbro figures, and the crispness and details are just vastly superior even if all you do is apply the stickers after you snap the kit together.

I'm going to slap R5 together this week and see how he looks though, but I think I'm 100% hooked here.

I need 3PO, and I've got the Sandtrooper on order.  The Scout I'll pick up when it's in stock on HLJ.

Yeah it looks good Matt...  nicely displayed, not cluttered.  Hard to find that balance.  :-[

Yeah I think Defender Wishlists will pick up as the line picks up with new movies (hopefully), and there's good traction for sending in wishlists again.

New movies will mean whole new pools of characters too...  It'll certainly help and the old films will still have their lists.  I just hope Hasbro's as diligent about cranking them out as they generally were in the past.  The Wishlists always generated decent turnouts to plastic it seemed.

I'd dare say if you don't like Revoltechs you could do very well with Bandai's...  That type of stuff would weigh on my C-3P0 ( :-X) decisions. 

I've got a list for sure...  Tarkin and RFT would be on mine obviously, as would a basic Rebel Pilot like Wedge maybe, but also I'd say a Hoth or Endor Rebel could both be equally awesome in my list.

He's got so many different looks...  They need to make one with the hook shot off now on the one arm too.  :D

Some of my Wave 8 are processing as of now with Entertainment Earth...  Han Carbo and Jawas in particular.

Can't wait!

For some reason the full case I have on order and some of the other singles aren't processing though.

I saw The Burbs in theaters...  It's really pretty funny.  Carrie Fisher's in it too.

And one of the Cory's...  One that isn't dead.

He could make a mint off just shilling autographs the rest of his life.  Suck it up, "Annie", and deal.

I think I almost yelled that too.   :-X

I didn't get to watch till this evening by myself...  Vader made the episode, honestly.  Everything he did, said...  Perfect.  He's cocky, condescending with his subordinates...  That Admiral can't be long for this world, right?  I mean he may attempt to pass the buck on the last part there, but really this guy's gotta be running out of chances with Vader.

The preview shot of him lifting the wrecked walkers and chucking them over his shoulder like a McDonald's hamburger wrapper was awesome. 

Phoenix Squadron was also awesome, and if Hasbro ***** the bed on (at the very least) redecoing the A-Wing to McQuarrie Blue, I'll be annoyed.  Ideally, they'd retool the blasters too, to McQuarrie styled ones.  I'd be content with that and no other mods (the fins bi-secting the engine, etc.).  They HAVE to get off the pot on this one.  I need a McQuarrie A-Wing! :)

Loved the Rebel's fleet by the way.  Small, a cool different Corellian CR design too, which I always had this suspicion (and with some EU help) that there were tons of that "style" out there similar to the YT series ships...  Cool seeing those though.

Also enjoyed immensely that some EU aspects were kept around...  The Imperial Shuttle Trooper compartment featuring the restraint bars from EU (including Force Commander, sorry Matt_Fury! :P) and Imperial Squadrons being designated Greek Alphabet letters (Delta Squad, etc., as in X-Wing and TIE Fighter).  Just was cool they touched on little stuff.

Lando's droid is rockin' too, and I hope we get that as a figure at some point.  Kind of not counting on it, but I'd be down for that one for sure.  Loved those funky colors.

Not that I recall, but again I barely follow the Jumbo Vintage craze.  I like looking at a lot of stuff online rather than actually buying it.  :-\

I knew I'd seen something about them saying they probably wouldn't get to everything though, so at least I wasn't going nuts.

I could totally be wrong, or maybe even it was POTF now?  I can't recall, but was sure I remember somewhere along the line them saying they weren't going to get to everyone.

I'd be a little disappointed if I were getting them I think, but only because I think I'd phase something out of my collection in favor of them, like all my actual vintage maybe, or something along those lines.

I preferred the original scale though ultimately.  I definitely dig the Jumbos though.

Now I cannot recall where I heard/read that at but seem to recall them saying they weren't going to get to ALL the ROTJ figures?  I don't collect, but my friend was under the same impression on that matter and he does buy into them all.

It's a line I don't keep up with, terribly, but seem to remember that being mentioned last year sometime...  For people into it, I hope it's not true.  It'd be kinda crummy not to complete it, if you went all-in on that line.  :-\
