Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 2

Anyone still looking for this group should check their local Barnes & Noble. Found this wave there myself yesterday at 25% off too.

Accessories would be cool. Build a droid pieces would be cool. Not $5 more cool. These are already overpriced judging from the market. Unless it's the hot figure, secondary market prices on Amazon or eBay tend to collapse on Marvel Legends and Black Series very fast after their release. There's no incentive right now to overpay for them, and virtually none to pay retail. If you wait a little bit, you'll get them all on sale. There's definitely a snooze you lose factor with these, but with the 6 inch that hasn't been the case since the very first wave or so of these in 2013.

Gamestops have never yielded anything for me. Giant piles of last year at the ones here.

Mine had $10.99 as well but I've seen $12.99 reported elsewhere. I'd say the survey is largely seeking an endorsement of places Hasbro already wants to go. The vintage line is effectively in the can already - I imagine we'll start seeing 40th anniversary stuff in March or so - and they've been experimenting with the environmental bases / two packs at different price points.

Huge kudos for doing Hondo's droid. Must have.

Not sure where to put this but here goes: I received an email from Hasbro today for a survey on the Black Series. The survey seemed to want to determine my interest in SA Vintage backed figures for $10.99; 6 inch versions of Bespin Han, General Lando and Grievous, with the latter specifically at a price point of $34.99; my interest in about 20 or so other choices including Gamorrean Guards and Moroff (answer: YES) as well as other BS items like the role play stuff. You get a 20% off code for HTS for participating.

Any possibility that Leia isn't the Rebels one?

 :o  ;D

You kind of want to tell the one on the right to eat a Snickers.

I was really looking forward to these too, and didn't give them a second look after I saw the way they turned out. Huge bummer.

Hopefully it's not hard to find. All of the RO two packs are piling up high around here.

These droids along with the introduction of the K2 model droid raises huge questions. It seems counter intuitive that the Empire would use an army of anything other than droids or clones considering its enormous disregard for life and the ubiquity of these technologies. Even a conscripted army can develop minds of their own, which is what we see happen again and again. You could make a case there was a political distaste for droids or clones post CW, but it's clear Palpatine gave zero ***** about the political mood of his subjects.

I maintain the Captain will show up with Bistan in one of the two packs.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

I lucked out with the Ponda Baba wave here in Iowa, finding them at a few WM's on the same day. I ended up with 3 or 4 Echo Base Troopers. Vintage wasn't great around here but it wasn't bad, and we pretty much had a shot at everything at lease once. I have never seen Shae Vizla though. I think she's the only one I don't have.

I think the choices in this group are pretty good. To me the Tusken Raider is the biggest head scratcher, but I suppose all of this is new to folks coming in to the hobby at this point. I'm hoping the Sandtrooper offers something new. If they go with the same old sculpt it's an instant pass, unless they choose to offer one of the variants from RO. There is an all white pauldron variant in the movie that I think Sideshow might be doing. There are some new backpacks too that the Jedha troops seem to have.

Was happy to not have to fret about Leia either. Though Sabine being HTF was not an issue as she's still very common, along with all of wave 1. This group, we'll see how common it gets.

Found a case of these at Target tonight. Picked up everyone but Cassian, who I found in Chicago, and Vader, who I think I'm passing on. We'll see how bored I am in a few weeks. They're all great figures. Krennic and Chirrut are the standouts I think.
