About time for an update, no?

Figuarts ANH Luke arrived here yesterday... comparing it to the Black Series Luke is almost unfair.

Apparently the Han spinoffs are now set to be a trilogy

Anyone see Beyond? I'm on the fence and my roommate says it's alright but isn't worth seeing.

Yeah I haven't really seen anyone bashing the price, just the perceived value. There are pros and cons in the set, it all comes down to how you look at it.

I'd guess that most of the disappointment stems from not the description, but for at least a few hours there was hope for the 3.75 inch SA line. Like maybe they were still going to throw collectors a bone. This thread got 6 pages of replies in 2 days! When is the last time that happened? When is the last time there was this much excitement around the 3.75 inch line?

**EDIT: It's right in the first post in this thread, "Figures include cool accessories and have the articulation you've come to love from The Vintage Collection and The Black Series."  Not sure if the "articulation" comment was Adam's or someone else's but that's really misleading and inaccurate for this set.  I can see why people are upset if that was communicated broadly.

Yeah that's pretty sleazy. Technically we've been getting SA Astromechs since the POTF2 line. Also the line about the characters "dating back through the history" of the OT or whatever where they built it up like it was going to be all OT era stuff.

I'm honestly still debating whether I want to cancel my set... I enjoy Astromechs, and these look cool (at least the OT ones) but for the value, the $80 stings. SA humans/humanoid figures, even some of those BAD protocol droid sculpts would have been cool, but this just feels like $80 for repaints of half-figures. Those used to provide funding for newer, better figures, but at this point it's like, what is this $80 going towards for the future of the line?

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.
