Yeah, these figures look better than anything offered by Hasbro or Mattel. I'll probably wind up importing some, but it'll be tough picking between the Bandai Vader and the Revoltech Vader with the funky ball joint cape.
I saw these at TRU last weekend although they were largely picked over. Only Rebels figs remaining were Ezra and Kanan, though they had plenty of the Legends figs. I did consider getting the 3PO/R2 animated set but passed for now.
I didn't see the deals (thanks to the Yakface twitter anyway!) until after I had placed my order. It came out to $39 after tax and shipping which is $13 per figure, not too outrageous and maybe $1-2 more than what I usually see on Amazon (and the only store still stocking 3.75 inch figures is TRU, which overstocked Wave 4, so they'll be sitting on Dagobah Lukes and Yodas until TBS ends).
I have Palmer in another Yahoo league and I got the same notification sent to my phone. It advised me to pick up Nick Foles... ya know the same Nick Foles who is currently out indefinitely with a broken collarbone.
I've been wondering what the timeline will be for trailers too. When the movies were out in May, we would get teasers in November and full trailers around March. I'm guessing we don't see anything until they attach something to Age of Ultron.
Hmm... If I have this correct, Jayson said his date stamp on the back was 41981, which was the variant. Rebelscum's was 42061, which is the running change. I've got the 42061 but I have yet to open mine out of laziness, need to pop mine open to see what version I have.
Has anyone been watching? Just marathoned the last three episodes, and so far a whole bunch of "meh." The latest episode with Ezra in the Imperial training center was pretty good though. Again I feel like the show isn't about "Rebels" per-se, but "bandits who cause minor annoyances to the Empire."
Best parts of the show? The music and the vehicles. I LOVED the TIE Fighter transport. Such a shame we'll never get anything in toy form.
I spotted these yesterday too. Dunno about everywhere else but these are NOT in the usual Star Wars section, but they have a special endcap for the Christmas exclusives. It had this set, the Marvel Legends set, a Dwayne Johnson WWE figure, some Minecraft stuff, etc.
The set looks nice (really nice), but I'm passing for now. I'd rather snag the regular Speeder Bike first.
Went searching for these for a while today and of course came up empty. The only Star Wars stuff I saw was the giant Maul figure and some puzzles. One store did have a fresh case of the 3.75 inch Wave 4, but other than that, nothing. I'll have to get one online I guess.
