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.

Could easily see them doing an exclusive Phasma in the line somewhere that is actually chromed if the molds can take the right plastic.  The buffed finish silver doesn't look bad but there is $ on the table there.

On my phone it's too small to read or I'd do it Jeff.

Still wish I knew what that build a thing is. ???

Constapated Voovo dude looks a tad like that bounty hunter from clone wars with the Rayden hat. :)

I'm not into 5POA but as a customizer I can make Phasma poseable no problemo.  Others won't be so easy with the robes and all but Phasma looks easy peasy.  I can pick some up on sale.

I still don't quite get what they build there.  Is that like a droid or what?

12" chewbacca was flocked once too.  GI Joes shffered from Joe pattern baldness from headgear and general play wear too.  Kinda weird looking.

If it's cusrom, someone is pretty adept at sculpting and has an eye for detail.

And you may be mad...  Or not...  By the end of it. :-\

Not many original colors to pick on Shelbys iirc so they do tend to have some frequent similarity...  Like red mustangs etc.

I didn't say it'd be repacked wave 7/8.  :-*

Think people are blowing stacks early on articulation is all.

I don't think Hasbro has thrown towel in on articulated 4", I just have a "feeling" it'll be something of an aside for collectors and not a focus.  IE, TFA is obviously a focus and will be for the majority of items but the OT/PT isn't gone to Disney, and that would be the best way to do articulated 4" stuff...  For now.  TFA articulated maybe later?  Either way, strong indications 4" articulated isn't as "dead" as some want to imply I believe.

I would NOT count on SA TFA yet...  Wouldn't discount OT/PT filling that TBS3.75" slot though. :x

99 was the sort of first time articulation was starting to jump from the 6POA stuff.  Commtech era saw some extra points.  Usually a figure with just elbows/wrists, or just knees and maybe a single elbow. 

It's cool looking back to think of that stuff now.

AOTC saw some horridly underarticulated stuff.  5 would've been generous.

To me, this pales in comparison to '02 in that regard.  And then when '02 was moving into '03, there were some passable figures and some better than passable (I still buy Dodonna/Antilles if I see them for a fair price).  Then again I still buy ASP-7's like theyr'e going out of style.  And even POTF2 2-1B's too.  And the Commtech Gonk...  Not everything lacking articulation is junk to me. 

Though I will say, the price has to be right on that stuff to me, but you've also got to realize costs to manufacture in China are vastly different now than they were then.  And don't count on Hasbro shifting manufacturing to India, Vietnam, or another country with the means/tech to do complex plastics mold work, and whose socio-economic progress is behind that of China.  That's not something Hasbro can do on a whim obviously.

ANyway though, I still like collecting when it comes up.  I usually find something I enjoy a lot.  That Han Carbonite has been a blast to me.  Perfect?  No.  But fun. :)  And I am quite sure Hasbro isn't folding up shop on articulation completely yet as well.

I kinda figured that, for the TFA figures...  right?

I mean do you want a 4" articulated Ren and a 4" non-articulated Ren on the pegs together? 

What I'm curious about is non-TFA...  Which is happening.  :-*

Bout sums it up.  :)

Saw a few folks chastised Hasbro over those WM shippers.  *shrugs*  :-\
