That 2006 version of E1 Obi-Wan came with the 2012 Trade Fed MTT, but that one was in a bubble type thing and not a baggie...  can't recall another time they used that particular kitbash of E1 Obi-Wan.

Happy to have the Han, but hope we get the regular version in this form soon too.

I said it before somewhere, but I'll say it again - I really, really want to see a lot of Han in this year's Walmart 3.75" line.   Would have liked VOTC Han or BEspin Han instead of Endor Han, but oh well.  TFA Starkiller Han is a great second Han for the line but I'd still love the Freighter Han in this SA line too.

Yes, I know that's a lot of Han for a line, but I'm going to be greedy here because we all know the chances of Ep8 or Ep9 Han figures are, well...  :'(

I'm fine if they skip an SA 3.75" TFA Luke for now and wait until the Episode 8 line to do him up nicely... not like he did a whole lot in the movie anyway. :P

Remind me who owns new Indiana Jones movies these days.

All Disney at this point for Indy 5 (and beyond).

Link ->Disney Takes Control of 'Indiana Jones' Franchise for Future Films

"Disney and Paramount have reached an agreement for the future of the Indiana Jones franchise, giving Disney control over all future films.

Paramount retains rights to the first four films and "will receive a financial participation on any future films that are produced and released," says the statement from the studios."

OFFICIAL!

FROM DISNEY:
Spielberg and Ford Reunite as Indiana Jones Returns to Theaters July 19, 2019

Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

I'm kinda bummed Leia got a slot, simply because she's a figure I'd be perfectly happy with 5POA...

Same here.  Loving Starkiller Base Han (assuming it's legit, of course).  Phasma is nice.  Leia... coulda been 5POA with that dress.  Oh well...

Justin, any sightings of the Spidey wave (Absorbing man)? I have not seen a trace of this wave anywhere.

The new Blaine Walmart (35W/Lexington) has had a few cases come and go.  I think they still have a few left on the pegs (along with a bunch of Rhino and Allfather waves). 

Pretty sure Beetle, Speed Demon, Pumpkinhead Guy, and some Spideys were left - Spider-Gwen disappears fast...

God, I hate modern comics.  Who are they killing off this year?

+1

Doesn't matter, Marvel or DC, it seems every year your favorite character is either a) dead or b) being rebooted.   ::)

Sounds like online shops will be able to start taking pre-orders on this set after 3/15. 

If you are a person who prefers to order online, keep an eye on your favorite shop for pre-orders next week...

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #2 - Han Solo!
« on: March 9, 2016, 09:55 AM »
I'm sure recasting James Bond the first time freaked out all the folks at JamesBondDefender.com back in the day.  They were all like, "Sean Connery = James Bond"!  But they recast him and life moved on.  I guess at the end of the day, I'm fine with recasting Han Solo because no matter what happens, we'll always have Harrison Ford Han Solo.

Well, they did recast James Bond with George Lazabey which turned out to be a disaster. The producers had to get Connery back.

Yep, an epic disaster, which is why they never tried it again and Sean Connery is still James Bond today...   :P

Recasting Han Solo is going to have bumps and bruises too.  Like Steve pointed out, a certain segment is going to hate the idea right off the bat.  Another segment of fans is going to love it no matter what.  Right now, I still have faith that the LFL crew isn't going to "Lazenby" Han Solo.  That could end up being horribly misplaced faith, but for now that's all I've got.



In other news, sounds like Chewbacca is confirmed for the movie. 

I wonder if they are going to let Joonas Suotamo (who was Chewbacca in a number of TFA scenes) continue on as Chewbacca?

Most reports I saw for Wave 4 were Walmart or TRU.  Started hitting in late December and continued into early January.  Sightings have dropped off a little since then with more and more Wave 5 sightings.

A lot of online shops didn't seem to get much of this wave.  Not sure BBTS or EE got much of it at all yet...  Target got a lot of Wave 3, not sure how much Wave 4 they got.

At first, I was in the "only Harrison Ford = Han Solo" camp.  Then I remembered that Harrison Ford = Han Solo is dead.  The only way for me to get new Han Solo in Star Wars movies is with a new Han Solo.  So... it is what it is.

If they cast the right guy, it'll probably all work out fine.  I'm going to put some faith into Kathleen Kennedy and the LFL people.  They found a batch of awesome people for Episode 7.  Hopefully they can do that here too.  Yes, I realize that recasting an icon like Han Solo is very different from finding a newbie like Daisy Ridley.  I just think they can do it.  I like the people involved in this movie - LFL, the directors, etc.  I have faith it's going to work out.

I'm sure recasting James Bond the first time freaked out all the folks at JamesBondDefender.com back in the day.  They were all like, "Sean Connery = James Bond"!  But they recast him and life moved on.  I guess at the end of the day, I'm fine with recasting Han Solo because no matter what happens, we'll always have Harrison Ford Han Solo.  If you go see the new movie and it sucks, you can go home watch 4/5/6/7 and spend your time on message boards telling everyone why 4/5/6/7 is the "REAL" Han Solo (taking the occasional breaks to chase kids off your front lawn, of course).

Whether we like it or not, it's going to happen.  What will be really interesting to see is what happens next....  if the "young Han Solo" movie(s) do well enough...  do they take it a step further?  Does it eventually evolve into "Young Han Solo" anchoring the cast of an Episode 4 reboot?   :-X

I mean, just think about it:  Young Han Solo #1 = 2018.  YHS#2 = 2021.  YHS#3 = 2024.   Then...  ANH 2.0 = 2027 (50th anniversary?!?)  :-X  ;D
