Yeah, this is even worse than I had envisioned. And I LIKE astromechs. Repainted droids =/= brand new SA figures. $80 saved I guess.

I like Rob's mindset. I preordered a set (using the JD link so put away your pitchforks), if the set sucks I can simply cancel.

Yeah I'll wait for the wide release.

A local Walmart had several Resistance Troop Transports for $49. Grabbed the one that was least damaged by the spider-wrap. They had a lone First Order TIE for the same price, but the box looked like it had been run over by a semi so I passed, especially since Amazon usually has the TIE for near the same price.

For $80, I'd really hope it's more than just some repainted BAD figures.

Nevertheless, this is pretty exciting news. I'd love to see more SA TFA figures released using this method.

Voted Dengar since that's the only figure I would actually buy.

Scrolled through a bit of the comments section and saw people discussing naming their kids after Mara Jade and Jaina Solo... noped out of that pretty quick.

Stopped in a Walmart over the weekend and saw they were clearancing out a bunch of older LEGO sets from every line. For Star Wars, I saw the FO TIE Fighter for $49, Resistance Troop Transporter for $49, and the Millennium Falcon for $109. They also had the Buildable Figurines for $15-20. Now this store is smaller and didn't have any of those System sets, but it might be worth trekking out to your local store.

I snagged the awful Rhino/Sandman vs. Spidey/Iron Spidey set on clearance at Walmart last night for $30. It was one of the few clearanced sets they still had multiples of.

If you told me that was a fan made photoshop, I would believe you.

Yeah, this is something they could have done 5, maybe even 10 years ago. Most people already have these game running on emulators on the PC. Plus, capped at the 30 games? Pretty easy pass, though I'd consider it on sale.

I'm kinda surprised Nintendo isn't making people pay for every game again like they do with their other systems.

Finally caved on this thing for $95 yesterday during Amazon Prime Day. Should be here tomorrow. I have a little bit of buyer's remorse, but I'm sure I'll wind up loving it.

Yeah that's a good list, and I would buy every single one of them. Also, props to JD for letting us all vote for 10 characters. I never understood the other sites only allowing one vote per person. Was it an issue of making things easier due to high traffic/submitted votes?

Jesse and I were discussing over Twitter about the Black Series figs versus the Japanese 6 inch lines (Medicom MAFEX, Bandai SH Figuarts, Revoltech), and Jesse had a good line about Hasbro being the "budget" line for collectors. It's expensive to collect the Japanese figures (roughly $50 per figure, give or take, plus overseas shipping) but you look at what they've done, and it blows Hasbro out of the water. You definitely get your moneys worth. Most of those lines have been around for 2 years at most, but they've tackled lots of stuff Hasbro probably won't get to for years with this pace. Mace Windu, TPM Obi-Wan, Battle Droids... there are even two versions of 3PO and R2, with more coming. Meanwhile from Hasbro we've gotten Luke in most of his movie outfits, a few troopers, and MAYBE a single figure for main characters like Han. I'm rambling here, so I guess the point I'm making is to agree that no figure is guaranteed to be made in this line.

The complaining is a tough issue to tackle because I know I'll end up sounding like a hypocrite somewhere haha. Legitimate gripes I'd say are paint apps and distribution, though I still don't know if that's Hasbro's fault or retail (or both).

Rogue One / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2016

Thank god, no Disney embargo this year (I hope). What a mess that was last year.

I'm hoping they rerelease some HTF figures on Rogue One cardbacks too (Han, Unmasked Kylo, Ackbar, etc.)

New S.H.Figuarts Announcements - Heavy Gunner First Order Stormtrooper and ANH Luke Skywalker.

The Heavy Gunner is a nice addition, but holy cow - look at that Luke.  Amazing, especially when you compare him to Hasbro's floppy shirt ANH Luke.


ANH Luke Pre-Order is back up at AmiAmi

I got my order in, looks like you still can too! Releases July 22!
