I'm surprised you guys are that into this.  Quite frankly I'm really disappointed.  I was hoping that this would be a way for Hasbro to keep getting new figures out and the '5 figures that hadn't been made' tease made me think it would be something really cool.


I was starting to worry that we were getting something pretty easy like this after Jeff's comment yesterday.  I like astromechs and the paint jobs on these look nice.  I'll keep my EE order and enjoy these to some extent.  But in all honestly, I have dozens and dozens of astromechs by now, especially with the Disney BADs.  I was really hoping for at least a few obscure humanoid figures - a jawa, a cantina alien, something original to go with the set.

I thought someone mentioned these being SA figures versus 5pt figures, but an astromech isn't SA at all unless there are some crazy new features these bring to the table.  It's okay, but I'm disappointed it wasn't more. 

**EDIT: It's right in the first post in this thread, "Figures include cool accessories and have the articulation you've come to love from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series."  Not sure if the "articulation" comment was Adam's or someone else's but that's really misleading and inaccurate for this set.  I can see why people are upset if that was communicated broadly.

Sorry if people have already seen this, but there is a nice season 3 fight scene here:

Figure looks great and I like the packaging, but I'll pass if I can't get it for cheap.  I like that the exclusive offering isn't too much beyond what we commoners can get our hands on.

Yeee...that second picture is scary looking.  I'll take Naomi over Johanna any day of the week...

This set is overhyped now.  Expectations have been insane the last 24 hours, so like Jeff said, this is bound to be a let down.  If they are actual Star Wars characters and SA, then I don't mind the price tag, but I'm already feeling deflated after thinking through the various options.   :-\

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.   ::)
