According to Walgreens, this is due to arrive 9/2.

I predict this will be the next new 6" figure anyone finds in a store. Which means we will be getting Vader, Jedi Luke, and the Black Pauldron Sandtrooper before Anakin and the Clone Trooper, which should have been out months ago.  ::)

So what was the "Big Announcement" they were teasing?

I went ahead and ordered Scunner off, not sure how long it will be til these show up around here. There was some other stuff I needed so I ended up getting free shipping at least.

Looking forward to getting my hands on the upcoming SDCC Exclusive Jaeger set!

My bad...sorry, was looking at an earlier post I had made. It was actually March. I guess a more accurate statement would be we've only had 1 wave of new figures this year.

For some reason it does feel like longer than that.

I had to go back and check...I scored the whole Stormtrooper wave on November 8th LAST YEAR.

That's going on NINE MONTHS now with no new figures in circulation. That can't have been their intention right? What a wasted year this has been so far...

Technically all of these figures are "Saga Legends". I think the carded samples for Vader and Snowtrooper are errors as they should only have the Star Wars logo at the top and not the SWR.

Ok, I assume the logo branding will be corrected at some point then. I do get that it's technically one line in 2 different flavors. Fine with me, as long as they slap "Rebels" on the Rebels stuff so I know what to buy, LOL.

I wonder how Gina Carano would look as a blonde.

She will make a kick-ass Avengelyne I know that.

So are Darth Vader and the Snowtrooper part of the Rebels line or not? They lack the titular branding but are apparently sourced to the movies on the cardback?

Great to see carded images though, have kinda been wondering why these haven't started popping up from the China eBay sellers yet, they have to have shipped out from the factories by now.

Hmm, that's cool of them, but it won't be exactly the same as the first edition. And the packaging looks different too. I do applaud them for acknowledging their audience though.

Hopefully this helps to bring the price down on the SDCC sets too.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

Yeah, the problem with making wild underwear claims is that it's just too easy to fall short of that mark and then look silly.  :P

Mosep does seem like a cool choice, but outside of that it's not a whole lot that blows the mind.

Did we really need another TCW-themed Anakin? I don't see how this merits a slot, even if just a repack. There's really not a lot of new territory to mine there outside of the Zygerian Slaver outfit, which is waaay to much to hope for at this point.

I guess Wolffe will be based on his later Clone Wars appearances?

I'm not concerned at all about the new movies, as I am unlikely to buy any of those figures or vehicles, but I do have some concern about how much Rebels stuff will ultimately get released and how much that will compromise my available space. If it's even half the amount of stuff released in the animated Clone Wars line it will be a real challenge.

If you got a carded Fromm for less than $200, you just got a great deal is all! (congrats)

This is about in line with what I would expect, maybe a little pricier given that he is not complete.

Moxie is always a safe bet when in the NE...

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Upcoming Black Series figures?

Good call. I thought about the cargo net thingy, but the Ewok throne makes even more sense.

Who doesn't want a Jawa carcass though?  ;D

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Upcoming Black Series figures?
« on: July 11, 2014, 09:01 AM »
Some news on 2 upcoming BS figures this week apparently...teaser shot of the TIE Fighter Pilot, allegedly in the Yoda wave.

Also, silhouette tease of a Jedi-Con exclusive 6" figure that looks a lot like a protocol droid. No way they do 3PO like that, unless he comes with some kind of extra, but when did he ever sport any accessories?

I guess exclusives are the only way they can get any new figures into circulation anymore, it's been 7 months now with the same 3 figures and I have a growing concern for that Anakin/Clone Trroper wave.
