You really couldn't find 2 new figures to put in this assortment other than Luke and Vader?

At least it's only 2/12 and not like 6/12 or something. #glasshalffull

So...
green insert = jungle/forest
orange insert = desert
blue insert = snow
dark blue/purple = space


More from Yakface:

Flametrooper, Zuvio, Finn (Jakku) -

The Force Awakens / The Force Awakens 3.75" 'Armor Up' Assortment
« on: August 13, 2015, 04:15 PM »
Looks like these are the $10 armored figures...  pics from JTA's Facebook page and various twitter sources.



Note: Finn (Starkiller Base)

From JTA Facebook:

First Order Trooper, Rey, Vader (I'm guessing these are SNOW


Poe, (?), TIE Pilot (I'm guessing these are SPACE)


And here's Bespin Luke too:

I thought these were the "Armored Series" guys.... ???

Nope, I have confirmed that these are from the Snow/Desert and Jungle/Space assortments.... 

Phasma, Kylo, Luke =
SW E7 3.75IN FIGURES JUNGLE SPACE AST
DPCI: 087-06-3947
$7.99

Zuvio, Flametrooper, Finn =
SW E7 3.75IN FIGURES SNOW DESERT AST
DPCI: 087-06-3948

Still haven't solved the mystery if these are indeed the "basic figure" line or if the rumored "087-06-3658 SW E7 3.75 Single Fig" is still happening.

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" Basic Figure Line

People are thinking the card opens up as well.  Or is it to keep the hooks from bending?

Opens up?  Interesting.  One other idea on the cardback I saw on twitter was that it's 2 parts glued together with the edge of the bubble tucked under it to help prevent theft or the bubble falling off...  ???

They were wondering about that with Kylo Ren (and we didn't get to see the back of the card).  But upon seeing the others, I'd say it's the second option (the theft/bubble issue).

Looking at the back of the Flametrooper again - there is definitely tape at the top, possibly holdingtwo parts together.  J-hook there definitely looks like two pieces.  Maybe it does open up for some reason?  Hmmm...

(man, I'm doing a lot of posting in here today... :P)

Also, when I spun this thread off the rumor thread, I called this the basic figure thread... but that might not be right. 

Are these from the basic figure line or the Space/Jungle/Snow/Desert figure assortment(s)? Or is the Space/Jungle/etc line the basic figure line in just two different assortments?  So confusing...

Sounding more and more like these are  from the Jungle/Space (Asst B3445) and Snow/Desert (Asst B3963) lines, which makes them $10 according to the TRU computer report rumors earlier this year.   Two lines is an interesting way to do it - a la the Collection 1 and Collection 2 of the old days. 


And who will be kind enough to translate the aurabesh text on the bottom of the Kylo/Phasma inserts for us aurabesh illiterates?  :-*

Twitter says it's "Combine Forest Gear" on Kylo and Phasma; "Combine Desert Gear" on Finn and Flametrooper.  Can any of our aurebesh experts confirm that?

Back of the Flametrooper card...  WTF is a Constable Zuvio?!?  Someone from Jakku, I guess?

Man, Kylo sold for $100 and now Phasma for $125.  People do realize these will be in stores everywhere in 3 weeks, right?   ???

JTA has a look at the cardback, which shows Captain Phasma, and Luke Skywalker... a very ESB looking Luke, in fact. ???

Is that a confirmation that there will be some OT figures mixed into this line?  That makes sense since there were rumors of a Vader in this line too...

Or is the answer - SPOILER ALERT! - that these particular characters (Vader, Bespin Luke) are included because they (or their accessories maybe?) are a big part of the TFA plot?  :-X


Anyway, having OT character figures mixed in here is a bit of a buzz-kill to me in some ways.  If I have to buy a 5POA Bespin Luke or whoever I don't really want/need in order to complete the "build-a-whatever", that's kinda gonna suck.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Inside Harrison Ford's return as Han Solo

Quote
"The minute Harrison and Chewie walked on board the Millennium Falcon — that was incredible," she tells EW. “Every single person on the set was stunned. I remember turning around, and there must have been 200 people gathered behind me — completely quiet. I didn’t even know they were there. The whole crew had stopped working, staring at the monitor, because it was so iconic.”

I'm totally going to cry when I see this movie...   :'(
