Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Found a twin pod cloud car at a thrift store  :), missing one canopy and no stickers  :(
But nice condition for its age.

AT-ACT with removable BOX! Awesome.

Actually, it looks okay. No where near worth what they'll be charging, but...

The new troopers would be sweeet with articulation. More so than those duck troopers from Force Awakens, anyway.

I want to like this line...I really want to get into this line...

I was holding out to see what Wave 2 looked like before I decided on Wave 1. I'm slipping more to the "no" side now. Something here just I don't know what it is.

And why Sorceress in Wave 2 and not Teela? I'm disappointed. I should be all over a 3 3/4" MOTU line. I wish I was.  :-\

As I said, they look worse that they should. Retro shouldn't mean "looks worse than the vintage MOTU erasers I had when I was 8".

Sorceress looks mannish. No excuse for making pretty ladies ugly. I wonder if Tri-Klops can even rotate his eyes. Probably not. They blew the budget on trap jaw's attachments.

They overtook Hasbro's Starkiller choice? Yeah, I think it's fair to say they'll never do this again.

People that like Dengar probably can't even dress themselves.  >:D

It looks like an all new sculpt from what I see. A better one. No more pointy shoulder armor.

The guy who advocated the end of obscure super-articulated figures because they BORED him, promotes the set as SA figures of characters available for the first time.

"Hasbro is delighted to announce they are make not one but TWO finalists from the 2016 Hasbro Fans' Choice Poll! In addition to poll winner ________, fan favorite Clone Captain Rex will also make his debut in the Black Series 6" action figure series!"  ;)

Starkiller is pulling ahead of Talon as of this post.


Now that I've thought about it a little more, and read some of Adam's comments, I have a different theory.  That being this exclusive may be the way to release the last few remaining characters from the Kenner line (up through POTF) who have yet to be re-made in modern renditions.

"Five of these figures have never been made as toys!"

I'd assume, even not trusting the messenger, that includes vintage Kenner as well.

We named the dog Jaina!

I voted Talon to stick it to the mouse.

I think of the 4 discarded EU characters, Starkiller might be a "surprise winner", since they made Revan.

Maybe he meant Vedain?

He almost made my list. He would if it were top 20.

Rex knew about the control chips and had his removed. I'd like to see the flip side, an apologetically loyal to the Empire Cody.

A fan asked Filoni about using Maz Kanata and his response was "That's a great idea", while not confirming anything.

No Dash Rendar. (just his ship type)

No Mara Jade.

No ysalamiri. (somehow the outight no to Mara Jade led to that without exposition as to why no Mara Jade)

Nothing one way or the other about Cad Bane.

The Celebration Europe Livestream Day 2 has a few clips... one with Sabine vs the Imperial Mandos and another with the return of Ezra's true master Jar Jar Darth Maul.

Tom Baker of Dr. Who is voicing that behemoth.

Hondo, Lando and the Mandos...form a band!
A very special episode.

Talk about Pigs in Space.

Pretty sad when Miss Piggy is the one who's being insulted by that comparison.
