Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

"Edrio Two Tubes" looks pretty damn cool!

Just FYI: According to TRU's website this set will be going up for sale online sometime today. I asked a customer service rep for a general timeframe but they had no clue.

I think out of all of them I'm most looking forward to Ziro the Hutt's Astromech to go with Ziro's Protocol Droid - now if I could just get a repaint of Jabba in Ziro's colors with some feathers tacked on, that would make for a pretty nice display.

You took the words right out of my mouth! What an easy repaint that would have been for them.

And now we need the rest of D-squad too.

Got all 9 figures today and they are terrific IMHO. Only downside was the bubbles are not well glued to the cards at all, so about 3-4 of them came right off during transit. Not a huge deal as I was pretty sure I would open these anyway, but fair warning to carded collectors.

Also kinda bugs me that I now have 3 different scales of GOT figures to display, and a pretty random assortment of character choices in all three.

Just read on Funko's page that the Landstrider set is a shared exclusive with Toys R Us.  :)

I was able to successfully pick up my SDCC exclusive Bruce the Shark from TRU in store, so I am now hopeful on this one. 

Oh man, that is way better than I could have imagined! SO MUCH Clone Wars love!

I've been working on my own custom D-squad for awhile now off and on, this will help a lot.

Price is steep, but I'm very appreciative of the opportunity to expand my beloved Clone Wars collection. I am in for sure!  :)

Dave Filoni spoke briefly about the Ysalamiri during the REBELS panel at SWCE.  And he specifically mentioned a conversation that he had with George Lucas on the Ysalamiri.  The conclusion they came to was that the effect that the Ysalamiri had with this "Force bubble" didn't make sense in their interpretation of The Force.  As a result the Ysalamiri wouldn't be carried forward in the way they were depicted in the Thrawn trilogy of books.

That's pretty much the problem I have with all that EU just doesn't make sense in the broader context of what has been laid out previously.

I still maintain the Empire's core leadership structure were a bunch of racists who would never have allowed a non-human into the higher echelon of officers. That to me just fits better with their whole galactic Nazi motif.

Please not Vlix. I still plan on owning an original some day.

Odd that they would hype the articulation for just jawas and astromechs, which are so limited in that regard to begin with. Hopefully at least one surprise in there.

Three exclusives no one will be able to get seems like overkill IMHO.  ::)

But at least it's just packaging, which is the least offensive of all con exclusives.

There is not even a scintilla of doubt in my mind that the thing is either outright rigged from inception or 5 high school dweebs are just hacking it all up beyond recognition. No way that is a legit sampling.

Starkiller would be slightly less of a bitter pill to swallow, as I did enjoy the game, and there's at least a chance the character could show up in some way shape or form down the road.

Talon is a neat design but you just know Hasbro would wreck it all to hell with those bare arms and legs. Slave Leia 2.0.

The comments are hilarious.  I commented on a bunch, including a jab at a certain other collector site who just can't believe their list didn't end up as the 6 finalists.   ::) #URNotAllThat

Man, I so wanted to jump into that fray too, but it wasn't worth joining Facebook.

Those people make the worst lot over at Rebelscum seem like a bunch of calm, rational intellectuals by comparison.

Elite SeriesStormtrooper Finn is up for sale now at!

So four characters that don't exist and one that I'm almost positive was previously announced/strongly rumored at some point. (Rex)

Man, even the toy elections have crappy choices this year.  :D

Dengar FTW!

I found the huge thing Kanan was talking to infinitely more interesting than Thrawn, but apparently they have toasted all the Inquisitors now, so it makes sense they would need to find a new way to up the danger level this season. At least they ditched his funky Space Parrot or whatever.

Agree it was a whole lot crammed in there. Makes me sad we will likely never see any of the great characters like Hondo, Lando, and the Mandalorians made in the toy line.  :(

If it's going to be substantially better than what's in that photo, I'm amazed that they'd show it at all.

Apparently they actually took her out of the display case after all the brouhaha.

I thought they did a great job on the Boushh likeness, but this...eeesh.
