Hey Hasbro! / Han Solo
« on: February 12, 2013, 11:14 AM »
Dear Hasbro,

2012 - the only basic carded Han Solo figure we got was a re-issue of 2011's Bespin Han.

2013 - the only basic carded Han Solo figure you've announced so far is yet another re-issue of the 2011 Bespin Han in the "greatest hits" cases.

Really?  That's the best you can do for everyone's favorite smuggler?

The carbonite block is getting some love in 2013 (6" SDCC exclusive, 3.75" pack-in with the Amazon Slave I), but you can't somehow squeeze a new "I'm about to get frozen" Carbonite Han Solo figure into the Black Series 3.75" line to go along with the Amazon set?

Come on, Hasbro.  You can do better.  Hopefully you've got a sneaky surprise in store for SDCC because the idea of going more than TWO years without a new Han Solo basic figure sculpt is just a total bummer to this Han Solo fan.  :(

Your Pal,
Jeff

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / The Black Series 3.75" - 2013 Wave 3
« on: February 9, 2013, 05:49 PM »
According to GH, there are 19 Black Series figures planned for 2013.  If Wave 1 has 8, and Wave 2 has 6, I guess that leaves 5 for Wave 3 -

Anyone want to guess the line-up?  Here's a list of "who's left" from the unreleased Droid Factory figures...

- Geonosian Warrior
- TIE Pilot (Vader's Wingman)
- Geonosis Battle Droid (Red)
- Sandtrooper (Black Pauldron)
- 212th Clone (on VC45 body)
- Clone Wars Mace Windu
- Clone Wars Captain Rex
- A-Wing Pilot
- BAD FA-4
- BAD TC-70
- BAD R5-X2
- BAD R8-B7

I haven't seen pics yet, but thought I'd start up a thread so we have one when pics surface... 

Sounds like it includes Vader, Operating Table and some other figures.  I'm also not sure if this is really a TVC item or if it's a cheapy Legends item... I'll just put it here for now (Vintage) and move it later if needed.

I'm guessing this one will be like the AT-ST Drivers.  If the price holds, that'll be a nice buy for $15. :)

Sounds like it's going to include TWO ball turrets, Yoda, and a pair of Clone Troopers.  Probably going to be pretty spendy since it's TRU.  :(

Head on over to starwars-figuren for our first peek at the Black Series 3.75" cardback (spoiler alert - it looks like the 6" packaging :P).

Like it?  Hate it?  Too plain?  Were you going to hate it regardless because you want the Kenner cardback back?

OK, all we know so far is that we're probably getting the Vader artwork on a boring cardback for the Black Series 3.75" figures.

What are your hopes and dreams for this line?  What is the one thing that would kill it for you?  What is the one thing that would make it the greatest line ever?


For me, jumping to a MSRP of >$10 would kill my enthusiasm.  $10 is really the ultimate cap for these and I'd be willing to give up some articulation (down to the 9-11 points range - I'm fine with no ankles and cut elbows sometimes) if it meant shaving a buck or two off the price.

Make it the Greatest line ever?  Why the debut of the Tonnika Sisters of course!  Those would be the ultimate "15th Cantina Guy".  ;)
