Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!

Hey, there's a Princess Leia figure coming! Based on how long it's taking to even get the 5th Brother figure out, I would expect this sometime in 2018.  :-\

Malachor is also referenced in the TFA Visual Dictionary as the source of inspiration for Kylo Ren's lightsaber design. ("Scourge of Malachor"...)

Free shipping today only @ Disney Store online...finally caved and ordered Rey with lightsaber. Feel stupid buying her twice but I guess I can make my money back selling my original at some point down the line.

Found an unexpected OT Stormtrooper on the pegs at Walmart and it rang up for only $ to love that. Must have been a return or random in-store find.

Still no sign of the Jango wave here.  :(

Judith might be a much more effective tool to paint Negan as a monster than just about anything else.

Better her than Glenn!

I found a couple of these at Walgreens last night. They were on a tiny display on the side of an endcap, away from the toy aisle. It made me happy to finally see these for sale in a store.  :)

Count me in for sure...these things look great!

Would be remiss not to mention the inimitable Angus Scrimm, AKA The Tall Man.

And that creepy super from One a Day at a Time...

I can literally cut and paste my list from last year I think:

STAR WARS: All Black Series 6"
                              All Rebels 3&3/4" stuff (if any ever comes out)

WALKING DEAD: Anything from the TV Series line
                                    Anything from the 10" line
                                   Anything from the building line

PACIFIC RIM:  Anything from the 18" line
                                 Anything from the 7" line

FUNKO REACTION: Not sure if these guys are on hiatus or what, but i'm still in depending on the property...

I decided to hold on to the extra Kylo since the changes are fairly significant in my mind and I like having both.  :)

Just out of curiosity, what are your plans for the 6" Rey?  ;)

Not sure, probably gonna keep her now too because I realized last night they updated BB-8 too with a new wash that much more clearly defines his various sections. Would you be interested in just the Rey figure?

Started a longer post on this last night but I guess I never finished it so here s a more succinct version. Having read reports about the Rey and Kylo in this wave being "upgraded" versions compared to their previous releases, I bought one of each yesterday to compare. I didn't see much difference in Rey frankly, the lipstick paint apps are slightly lighter and more delicately applied, but that's about it that I can tell. I like the newer version but I don't really regard that as a legit variant, just a subtle tweak.

Kylo however, has some pretty notable differences from the first version. They added a red wire painted on his lightsaber hilt which was not on my original version, and the texture on his cowl is completely different from the original one. Hard to describe without seeing it but it has a sort of "gooseflesh" texture where the first time around it was much smoother like a crumpled towel. I think they also slightly changed the cut or length of his robes too.

I decided to hold on to the extra Kylo since the changes are fairly significant in my mind and I like having both.  :)

I've seen the latest wave too, the TIE Pilot and stuff.  Is Rey repacked in there because I see her/BB8 a bit too.  Not a ton, but she's popping back up locally.

Yes, she is re-packed in Wave 3 too. It is a slightly upgraded version from the previous release as I understand it. Very minor differences mostly. The repacked Kylo is a lot different...I posted about him in the Wave 3 thread.

I ship Priority about half the time, which comes with $50 insurance, but I don't think this was one of those, unfortunately. I heard back from him again last night and I guess he is saying now that the figures themselves arrived damaged. He included a couple of pictures but I have no way of knowing whether he did that himself or it actually happened in transit. I know they did not leave my hands like that. I offered to give him a 25% refund and let him keep the figures so we'll see what happens. I'm pretty sure he is not going to play ball though.

Well, after umpteen sales transactions without a hitch, I finally ran into a problem buyer. I sold some loose figures along with their original packaging, and mentioned clearly in the listing that I would be shipping them in their original packaging. I guess they got jostled around in shipping and were all askew in the inner clam shell. He somehow interprets this as the items bring in bad condition.  ::) never mind that both the figures themselves, as well as the packaging are both totally undamaged. Dude wants a full refund plus me to foot the bill for his return shipping.

Praying I can talk my way out of this one but I'm expecting pain.  :(

This wave is now showing up at Walmart on the East Coast...
