TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)
« on: Today at 12:49 PM »
The rebellion is growing, and the stakes are higher.


I've always enjoyed Rebels, but this new preview makes it look like MUST-SEE TV.  I went from looking forward to watching Rebels with my kids to WANTING to watch Rebels... B-Wings, lost Jedi, Vader & Ahsoka, etc.  Looks fantastic.  :)

Marvel Phase 3 Update

(To Be Announced) - May 1, 2020
(To Be Announced) - July 10, 2020
(To Be Announced) - November 6, 2020

Panel over and moving into Q&A...   only "NEW" reveals were updates on 6" Revan and 6" Sabine; 3.75" Seventh Sister; and preview of prototypew for 6" ANH Leia coming 2016.

Tidbits from the Q&A, courtesy of Star Wars Action News facebook page -

- Force Friday shortages = "compressed timeline led to Force Friday shortages. They're working hard to make sure you get the figures in your stores and in your hands very soon"

- More Rebels figures are coming = "Dedicated to producing new ones. Can't say who but strong hints about new Season 2 characters Hondo and the new bounty hunter"

- Black Series 3.75" at Walmart = "they're testing the line with Wal Mart. If they sell as well as they hope they could become a regular non exclusive line again. But they're very expensive to make and they are concerned with fans accepting the higher price required to put the articulation in the figures"

- 6" C-3PO = "have patience"

- there will probably be a Celebration London exclusive = "something fun"

- crappy X-Wing plastic = "they recognize the problems and they are trying to rectify the issues with the guns.  They're trying to keep up with new safety regulations, new materials that keep costs down, etc. so the toys keep evolving.  They seemed to agree with the disappointment with that vehicle, though they didn't say that in so many words."

And, panel over.

Panel is going on right now...

For McMetal - 3.75" Seventh Sister prototype revealed:

link in case pic doesn't show up

Funny looking back on this thread from 2.5+ years ago - we got that speederbike and Tauntaun folks were guessing.  Jabba too.  But who would have guessed that the "BMF" style, big ticket collector item for Episode 7 would be a 6" scale TIE Fighter?

Anyway, now that the door is WIDE open on 6" scale vehicles, anyone have a new "Fool's Dream" they are hoping for?  Obvious one would be an X-Wing to go with that 6" scale TIE...

Looks like the preview party had a bunch of stuff that's in stores now; the Titanium Series Helmets (plastic prototypes, not die cast finished product); and some new 6" figures.  However the only "NEW" newfigure was 6" TFA Han Solo I guess.

Man, that 6" TFA Han Solo is a nice looking figure. Kinda sorta makes me wish I was collecting the 6" stuff...  :-X

It sounds like the Poe/Phasma "Double-Armor Up" figures may be store exclusives. 

Both have the "Epic Battles" tag (which has been seen on other TRU exclusives) and both have a higher price point than the standard "Armor Up" figures on the UK TRU site.

The Black Series 6" Figures / New York Comic-Con 2015

Hasbro will once again have a bigger presence at NYCC this year.  There is a preview party tonight and then a full panel on Thursday.  Here are the panel details:

Hasbro Star Wars - Thu. October 8th - 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM (ET)

Join members of the Hasbro team as they discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line that hit shelves on Force Friday! Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro’s latest action figure offerings with a look at new product coming later this year.

I'm assuming they will have the "Titanium Series Helmets" there since they just previewed those at Hasbro Pulse. Rumor mill says they will have a few other new things to reveal...

Back in stock for pre-order -

Grab one while you can, who knows how long they will last...

New "Armor Up" Figures Revealed - X-Wing Poe and Phasma.

Saw a new case listing at EE - Class II Vehicles Wave 2 Case.  Don't get too excited, because this is the description:


More Desert and Snow speeders and what looks like a repack of the ESB mini-Slave I with a 5POA Fett pack-in for $30.   ::)
