Anyone catch the Hasbro toy catalog images that leaked earlier today? They didn't last long thanks to Hasbro's quick reaction time...

The Force Awakens / TFA 3.75" Action Figure 2-Packs
« on: August 20, 2015, 04:23 PM »
So, these are the Mission Series 2-Packs with a new name, I guess.  TFA based figure 2-packs (or in some cases 3-packs), mixed in with some Rebels, OT, and Prequel packs.

The Force Awakens / TFA 3.75" Scale Millennium Falcon
« on: August 20, 2015, 10:45 AM »
3.75" Scale Millennium Falcon Rumors so far -
- it's supposed to be about $120-130
- it'll have pack-in figure(s); rumor = Chewbacca, Finn, BB-8
- it may have nerf-dart firing cannon(s)
- it's most likely not the BMF mold
- it's most likely a brand new Falcon design
- it'll probably have a "fold-out" playset feature like other recent big vehicles

Looking forward to finally seeing some pictures of this thing. :)

No pics with this story so it'll go here for now...


Now that that's out of the way - Hasbro Line Details?

Nerf firing Falcon?  Bummed it's not an updated-with-new-radar-dish BMF, but I'll probably still pick one up... though for $120 it better be pretty nice.

Crazy clearance sales at Walgreens stores. They were priced pretty high before, but phase 2 TBS 3.75" figures are being clearanced out for $1.38 each.  I picked up another of the ROTJ R5 units. 

Thanks for the tip, Nick.  I hit a few today at lunch but didn't find any left at my closest three Walgreens.  :(

And yet, for some reason they refuse to put the GoT figures on clearance despite the fact these have been gethering dust for months now.  ::)

They were 40-60% off at the stores I hit today...  well, I should say Tyrion was, since he was the only one I saw.  About $8-9 each for the most part.

Finally some people are opening up the TFA figures and keeping them instead of instantly ebaying them.

- X-Wing Poe: helmet definitely does not come off

- some of the figures do indeed have holes in their back to accomodate attaching the "build-a-whatever" part. For sure X-Wing Poe and Jakku Finn, maybe more.

- Good news though that most of these 5POA seem to have ball-jointed heads - should make it pretty easy to do a non-helmeted X-Wing Pilot Poe (head swap with Armor Up Poe) and a Stormtrooper Finn that way.  :D

Oh, good one Steve.  I didn't even think about that.  That's another legit gripe. 

If you don't have a TRU (or whoever) near you, you'll be resorting to to help you out... and we all know how much love and care they put into getting their customers MOMC product.  NONE.   :-\

At least there are forums like these and others where collectors can seek help...

Yeah... I think I'm finally ready to buy a PS4:

Darth Vader-Inspired PS4 System Revealed, Two Star Wars Bundles Out This November

Only thing I have to figure out now is whether it's a Christmas present for ME (Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition) or for the whole family (Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars).  ???

So many "retail exclusive" or "chrome collection" rumors out there again for the future of the SA 3.75" stuff...  I don't know what to believe anymore.  Here's a small sampling of the stuff I've read over the past 5 days from "legit" or "confirmed" sources:

3.75" SA is taking a break, but will be back in 2016!
3.75" SA will be on the pegs at Walmart on #ForceFriday!
3.75" SA will be relabeled "Chrome Collection", exclusively at TRU!
3.75" SA will be a shared big box retail exclusive, screwing over guys at BBTS and EE!
3.75" SA is dead forever!

If only there would have been some giant comic-con with a Hasbro presence this summer where we could have learned anything about stuff like this.

The sadistic part of me is hoping the "store exclusive" rumors pan out, because won't that be fun watching the social media rage when people find out they missed out on the SA 3.75" stuff because they happened to choose the wrong retailer for their #ForceFriday shopping and didn't make it to Store X in time.  >:D

And, speaking as a person who has bought 95% of my figures by the case from fine folks at BBTS or EE for the better part of 3 years...  nothing like screwing over the etailers by supposedly taking the SA 3.75" stuff out of their hands.

Then again, the "store exclusive" rumor could just be for a sub-line of 3.75" SA figures (like Walmart's TPM3D stuff) and not the full basic line.  Argh, it sucks not knowing anything.

Ugh, I need to go back to looking at the pretty TFA cards and not thinking about how messed up things are right now for the SA 3.75" line. :(

Yeah, it's sounding more and more like a mini-Hero Series type thing...  makes me thing of the "Collector Fleet" ships form the POTF2 era I guess.

Did our preliminary ticket draft this past weekend...   my 1/4 share got me -

Blues, Ducks, Predators, Avalanche, Red Wings, Jets, Blackhawks, Panthers, Oilers, Flames, Senators

Always changes a little as the year goes along.  Things always pop-up and games get traded around (plus we'll be trying for tickets for the outdoor Stadium Series game too).  So far, I like the mix - 5 from the Central, 3 from the Pacific, and 3 from the East.

Excited to see the McDavid kid when the Oilers come to town. Not terribly excited by FLA and OTT games, but those were an artifact of trying to pick weekend games to finish off my set.

Oddly enough I see all of the other troopers but not Wolffe.

Remember, Wolffe was the only new Wave 7 figure that wasn't carried into Wave 8 - that's why he's a bit harder to find than Rex or Doom.

Noticed that the Walmart report at Yakface has $6.93 price stickers on these figures.  That's cheaper than what's been reported for Target and TRU ($7.99).

Also, it is sounding more and more like these assortments (B3445 Jungle/Space and B3963 Snow/Desert) are indeed the "basic" figure line.  Those holding out hope for slightly cheaper $6 figures with no "build-a-whatever" part may be out of luck...  unless they are planning cheaper versions for overseas or the dollar store markets.
