I saw something to the effect that this Leia is not a final product.  The facial portrait wasn't the final version, and there's additional stitching that's to be added to the hood.  I have to try to track down the source of those comments.

Jayson (Yakface) had that from Hasbro designer Steve Evans -

So folks don't miss it in the other thread - this 4-pack is an Amazon Prime Day deal for $48 right now =

if we've had the same lists for two years and virtually none of the "obvious" candidates have been made, then I'm not sure I can fully back that idea.

And those dips btching about "obvious choices" obviously haven't been paying attention because how many years has it been now and still no 3PO?!?!

I agree with you fellas.  To me, its a numbers game now.  There were 21 figures in the TFA line so far and what, like 17 were from TFA?  Just 4 (Kanan, Ahsoka, Farm Luke, Jango) that were not new movie stuff. 

If we're only getting 4-8 new OT/PT figures each year, you can't call stuff like Zuckuss or 4-LOM obvious anymore.

Results!  Here are the Top Six that were sent to Hasbro this morning:

1. Zuckuss
2. 4-LOM
3. Dengar
4. Emperor's Royal Guard (RotJ)
5. Lando Calrissian (ESB - Bespin)
6. Tusken Raider

(Full disclosure - there was a tie for 6th. The tiebreaker was a random # generator, where the Tusken beat out Gamorrean and Jawas. Congrats, Sand People!)

Look for info on the Round 2 voting at soon...

1. Han Solo (Bespin)
2. Han Solo (Carbonite - Pre-Freeze)
3. Han Solo (Echo Base Hangar)
4. Han Solo (Endor)
5. Han Solo (Starkiller Base)
6. Han Solo (Hoth - brown coat)
7. Han Solo (Yavin IV Ceremony)
8. Han Solo (Carbonite - Post-Thaw, hybernation sickness)
9. Han Solo (AT-ST Disguise)
10. Han Solo (Marvel Comics #15 space scuba gear  ;D)

More Han please! 8)

Didn't have time to post these in here yesterday, and yes I know they are not technically ReAction, but I saw that Super7 has another wave of He-Man figures coming to SDCC!

Get those votes in - voting closes at 9:00am CT tomorrow morning to give us time to tally up the votes!

Looks like Nerdist removed the packaged product photos from their story.  Here are the boxed and carded shots in case you missed them earlier...

Rogue One / Re: SDCC Hera Syndulla's A–Wing
« on: July 8, 2016, 02:03 PM »
The figure looks great and I love the mini little A-Wing.

Looks good... but I think I'll probably pass when I see it.  Can't really justify the $30 for a tiny ship when I already have a bunch of nice 'full-size" A-Wings.  :-\

Has anyone done a comparison yet to see if this Hera is any different than the one previously released?

Different - she has a new helmet/visored head for sure...

If you want to talk about the SDCC reveals, please use the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 thread in the Rogue One forum. (New packaging, new forum! ;)).


Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Star Trek

I wasn't that excited to see this movie in the first place - now I'm definitely out.

Sulu is/isn't gay has no bearing on me not wanting to see it... I don't want to see it because I saw the "we swear it's not Khan" one and that movie was so bad (so bad I can't even recall the name and won't even bother looking for it), I pretty much swore off seeing any more of these New Trek movies. :P

I would not be surprised to see it at $70.

I kinda agree.  $50-60 would be the range I would expect, but sadly, if a basic figure is $23 these days, a $70 price @ TRU would not be a huge surprise.

Comic Con is right around the corner.  Nerdist has a preview of stuff...

- Rebels A-Wing (nerf shooting) with Pilot Hera
- Desert Scarf Rey (looks like a new head on the TFA 5POA body) - on the new R1 card though!  Looks like "build a weapon" parts are being phased out in favor of projectile firing accessories  ::)
