Looks like you hit the goal, Paul - congrats!  Really hoping it pick up some steam now that it's hit the goal - would really like to see some of those stretch goals get unlocked...

The other thing to note is that Hasbro severed their ties with FunPub, the people who ran BotCon, JoeCon, and those two fan clubs.  Seems like this event is taking the place of both of those shows, plus cramming in MLP and some other stuff for good measure. 

If this show is meant to replace those two, maybe they don't need Disney/Marvel/Star Wars to get enough attention?

I caught up on this show over the past couple days.  Best I can say is that it looks interesting.  Some good acting, some mystery, some slow burn plotline build-up. Lots of potential.  I'll give it a shot and see where it goes...

The press release doesn't mention Star Wars at all (it's clear they are trying to make Hasbro's own brands the focus of this show), but with how this event falls right in the prime "announcing stuff" time of the "Force Friday" season for Episode 8, you have to imagine they would include some Star Wars stuff?

Will be interesting to see how this plans out as far as announcements and exclusives...

Battle in Minnesota tonight.  After our coach seemingly had his brain cap screwed on tight and put Thorburn and Stuart in the press box for the home opener, he's bringing them out to play in Minnesota tonight.  I predict the Wild win 5-2.   ::)

Hope so, 'cuz I'll be there tonight to see it!  :)

Rogue One / Re: TRU Exclusive TFA 3.75" Battle Figure 6-Pack
« on: October 14, 2016, 03:57 PM »
Not sure if this is like three 2-packs packed together or what.  It would be great if the Kylo in the set is the "Ben" maskless head version.  That would be a nice way for those missing him or the Riot Control Stormtrooper aka FN-2199 (aka "TRAITOR!" guy) to finally nab them.

Riot Squad Trooper (w/Baton & Shield) = Yes; Maskless Kylo Ben = no.  :-\

Pic from Yakface:

Just to clarify - the Stormtrooper in this set has a white repaint of the Rogue One basic figure's orange pauldron/armor accessory. 

The Stormtrooper in the Kohl's 4-pack has a white repaint of the orange pauldron from the Baze Malbus Vs Stormtrooper 2-pack.

One last thread to add this morning (for now). 

Looks like a repack of the U-Wing pack-in and a repack of the basic figure Stormtrooper with repaint accessories.  Pic from TRU UK site (via Yakface

Another exclusive confirmed by Hasbro's Rogue One Product Checklist...  no pics yet though.

Rey vs Kylo; Poe vs TIE Pilot; Finn vs FN-2199.

Not sure if this is like three 2-packs packed together or what.  It would be great if the Kylo in the set is the "Ben" maskless head version.  That would be a nice way for those missing him or the Riot Control Stormtrooper aka FN-2199 (aka "TRAITOR!" guy) to finally nab them.

Hasbro Pulse has posted a new "Designer Desk" video highlighting the AT-ACT.

I still think this looks like a really nice, really fun... undersized, over-priced toy.  :-\
