The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts
« on: August 10, 2016, 10:20 AM »
EE is running a new sale this week to clear out some stuff ahead of Rogue One - some good deals on Black Series 3.75" and 6" stuff -

Black Series 3.75" Wave 7 case for just $89.30 plus free shipping.  Nice SA army builders and custom fodder in there for just $7.44 each!

Black Series 3.75" Imp Navy Commander = $7.50

Black Series 3.75" Dutch Vander = $6.10

Wave 4 case (and lots of other stuff) on sale at EE this week - just $116 for the case of 6 with free shipping.

You don't need to have a feeling, Hasbro already said (and showed) exactly that.  :P

All three of the SDCC figures will be re-issued in the basic 6" Black Series line in the Fall, minus the special bits (no cards for Jyn; no table and Anakin saber for Obi-Wan; no stand, banner, and helmets for Kylo).

Looks like you were at the tail end of the Kylo window. 

He lasted about 35-40 min, a lot longer than I would have guessed.  Probably helps that there have been so many Kylos released already...

Twittter chatter is saying they are now available - good luck!

Be sure to order off this page - links aren't working on individual pages yet...

Weird they are pushing it on NBC and not an ABC event

I saw Disney is pimping their new animated film, Moana, during the Olympics as well - guess Disney is just wanting to get some buzz off the Olympics, even if it helps NBC temporarily.

Boxed shots of Rogue One Wave One (which would be, Wave 7 for the red box line look I think?):

Finally got our Q&A with Hasbro posted (delayed by some tech issues with SoundCloud) - give it a listen.  6" stands, 3.75" distribution, love for The Vintage Collection, and more...

Thanks again to Darth_Anton for helping us out with SDCC coverage!

Rogue One / Re: The Playset Thread

Attention CHEWIE (and playset fans) - please don't pass out when you hear the JD Q&A with Hasbro, which we finally managed to get posted today (thanks, tech issues!  ::)).

Playset talk is at the end (around minute 9) ->

But it seems that the initial reviews for Suicide Squad are not that good.

Even the "good" reviews on RT aren't that good.  Most of the good reviews say things like "The movie is, on paper, a disaster. It is, in execution, a mess. Itís never really fun (but itís also not relentlessly grim and bleak like BvS), but itísÖ watchable? And it has those four performances that really make a difference."

It sounds like strong performances from Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and Jay Hernandez (and to some degree Ben Affleck) are so good it's worth seeing at some point...  probably not going to see it in theaters, but I'm sure I'll redbox it or watch it when it hits pay cable at some point. ;)

RIP, JediMAC.  I'm sure your spirit is out there in Star Wars forum heaven, giving Hasbro the tongue-lashing they so richly deserve.

On this, your birthday, I salute you and the magnificent Laker-fry:

Can't help wondering why there are 3 ports on top of the domes and only two accessories. What the heck is that third one for? It's too big to fit either of the attachments.

I can't recall but maybe there was originally an extra one that came with R2?

R2 came with Luke's ROTJ lightsaber hilt.

Of the three Hasbro Star Wars SDCC exclusives (again, big thanks to Hasbro PR for supplying us with samples  :)), Obi-Wan is, no surprise, the King.

This may be the best 6" figure I've seen Hasbro do so far. The likeness and paint job on my Obi-Wan head are second to none.  The light/sound table is phenominal.  It has two modes - first just does the "help me Obi-Wan Kenobi" bit and then the second does the whole Leia holo-speech.  Just awesome. :)

Both sabers have removable blades and the loop on the end of Ben's hilt fits onto his belt hook perfectly. And yes, he's still in the package for now.  The open box set-up is so well done that I can't bring myself to pull him out of it yet (I'll get there eventually :P).

The only problem I have with the set is that not everyone is going to get it and that's going to piss off/disappoint a lot of folks probably.  :-\

I got one of these from Hasbro.  It's nice... but I have no idea who Jyn Erso is or what she does (trying to avoid spoilers, thanks).

Guess I will have to decide whether I actually want to keep it or not until after the movie comes out. :P
