I got my Alien carrying case and Japanese 3-pack yesterday.  ;D

Rob, you'll be relieved to hear the 3-pack figures appear to be exactly the same as the previous version. I compared them side by side in a bright light last night and could not tell any difference. Packaging is cool though.

The carrying case was a super nice effort, better than expected. It's big! Two stackable drawers covered in a vinyl slipcase, very retro. Fits 24 figures total I believe. I got all my loose guys in there last night and they fit great.

And man, the Glow in the Dark Alien is freaking hellishly cool. They even added some darker inked highlights to really bring out the details. I wish I had more of these guys!

Not holding my breath though...

That is an outstanding Top 6 that I am very proud to be associated with. Well done, Jedi Defenders!  :)

I agree with you Nick, that it seems pointless to vote for characters that are no longer canonical. Hasbro could and should have easily put that to bed by stipulating that you had to vote for someone from the 7 movies or 2 TV shows.

If they can make Rogue One off-limits, they sure as heck can make all the EU fan fiction stuff off limits too.

And those dips btching about "obvious choices" obviously haven't been paying attention because how many years has it been now and still no 3PO?!?!

They are also doing an 18" Warrior Alien "lost prototype" as an homage to the classic Kenner figure...just read about that last night.

A few questions...

01:  Is the Landstrider set the only known SDCC exclusive at this point? 
02:  Do we know if it'll be available anywhere else?
03:  Do any of you happen to have an extra of the glow-in-the-dark Xenomorph from the carrying case set you'd like to sell?

Got my shipping notice for the Japanese-branded 3-pack and Carrying Case... 8)

So far yeah, that is the only ReAction exclusive they have revealed. I keep thinking there will be something else, but not so far. Not sure about availability outside of the con but almost all their exclusives have gone up in the Super7 Webstore at some point.

And yeah, the Japanese 3-pack is essentially the same version of the previous 3-pack, but I think they lightened up the paint deco this time around. Not quite as day glo neony.


04:  That set is the same as the last one with just packaging changes right?

The Kroger supermarket chain is running that same clearance pattern, desert stuff was cheaper than jungle by a good $2 or so. Just noticed today.

Yeah, my outrage was more mock than authentic, lol. It doesn't bug me that much, although I do wish they wouldn't do it.

I'm very thankful for any new Rebels stuff though, and especially a new Hera figure!

Apparently Takei himself feels it's not what Roddenberry would've wanted, but then again the Trek franchise hasn't been what Roddenberry wanted since back in the TNG days before he died, and IMHO it improved without him after he died.  :-X

Yeah, I believe his exact quote was "very unfortunate" and while this surprised me at first after reading into it I can see his point. His take was that Sulu was always envisioned as a heterosexual character and that it would have been a better choice to make a new character gay rather than re-imagining an existing one. His respect for Roddenberry and the source material was pretty refreshing actually.

I agree he seems like a very likeable dude in a genuine way.
