Vintage Kenner / Re: Wow - Vintage eBay Auctions

Those are some impressive figures.  Wow.

Wow, this is such a pass for me.  I own every 6" figure to date and multiples of many, but I'm not sure I would want this figure for $20 if someone came to my door selling it.  5 times that and added hassle of international shipping.  Hard pass.

They seriously need to check the data, the voting is rigged.  Talon was ahead by 5 points 24 hours ago with 54k votes.  Suddenly we have 13k new votes to push Starkiller into the lead? Yeah right.  That's tampering.  They should start by checking out Matthew Geoffrey Levine, who commented nonsense countless times to hide another person's earlier comment about vote tampering. 

Let's do the math.  24 hours ago, Talon was at 26% and Starkiller was at 22%.  There were approximately 54,500 votes.  In under 24 hours, there are suddenly 13,000 new votes and Starkiller is up to 27%.  To achieve that, Starkiller had to get roughly 6,500 votes, implying that the other 5 characters all got 6,500 votes COMBINED.  I call shenanigans.

One is from the original Star Wars -so not ANH. R2-A5?

 One Comes with same accessories it's vintage equivalent did -Red and white bartender droid on Sail Barge?

Pop Up Lightsaber R2 maybe? 

54k votes is may more than I would have expected given this is the 6" line.  Talon still ahead by a wide margin...

Ordered.  Definitely thinking Jawa for 1-2 of the figures and the rest are probably droids.  I'd love a few new cloth jawas with articulation.  Is there another hint in that it says "3 3/4-inch scale" instead of just "3 3/4-inch?"  Feels like they wouldn't have bothered saying "scale" if they were all human sized...

The comments are hilarious.  I commented on a bunch, including a jab at a certain other collector site who just can't believe their list didn't end up as the 6 finalists.   ::) #URNotAllThat

Well, I have to vote Darth Talon.  She was easily the best character coming out of the Legacy series and would look awesome with Revan.  I like that she's even a possibility given that the original EU was erased.  Maybe I will vote Dengar with my son's account... ;)

I especially love the sort of long hair white Chewbacca alien in the clip.

We'll get a 3.75" and 6" figure of this guy, his backstory in magazines, but he won't actually be in the movie...   :P

The figure you're referring to is Constable Whitebacca.

FN-2187 pic up over at JTA. Sounds like it should be hitting soon...gonna need it.

I read somewhere that they will be available on the 15th at Disney Stores, so I'm guessing 2am tonight on the site.   ::)

Jesse - thanks for taking the time to review these.  Looking forward to hearing more.  If you guys hear anything about the core set coming back into stock please post here.

I can't believe how angry people are over voting for toys.  Good lord.  People are pent up.

Well, hopefully our little site doesn't skew the votes too much.   ;)

I got my Alien carrying case and Japanese 3-pack yesterday.  ;D

Rob, you'll be relieved to hear the 3-pack figures appear to be exactly the same as the previous version. I compared them side by side in a bright light last night and could not tell any difference. Packaging is cool though.

The carrying case was a super nice effort, better than expected. It's big! Two stackable drawers covered in a vinyl slipcase, very retro. Fits 24 figures total I believe. I got all my loose guys in there last night and they fit great.

And man, the Glow in the Dark Alien is freaking hellishly cool. They even added some darker inked highlights to really bring out the details. I wish I had more of these guys!

Got mine today and couldn't agree more with all of this.  The GITD Alien looks awesome when I turn off the lights to the room.  The case is like double the thickness of the old Kenner vinyl SW cases.  Looks really durable and well made.  The cover art on the front is a little lame IMO - I would have preferred more realistic art or even a movie photo.  I don't have the original 3-pack, but these guys will look cool with a space suit Ripley. 

Nice list guys - I'd buy all of those in a heartbeat.  I'd still like Hammerhead above all others, but cool to see the remaining bounty hunters at the top.

Great deal if you've been holding out. Only want the FO Officer, so I'll pass again.

I want the FO Officer and the Clone Commander, but I still can't pull the trigger.  I wish they hadn't included all the repacks, or maybe made some more interesting variations.

I don't know - at $12 a figure, I almost feel like I'm losing money if I don't buy another one of these.  You can essentially throw two figures away at that price.  If it gets any lower, I think I'd have to bite just to get another FO Officer.
