Carded images on Ebay (8 of them, anyway) (buy it now prices of $34.99 to $39.99  :o ).

Jango now has a new removable missile firing pack, but is other wise the Evolution figure. I kinda wish they'd recolored him a bit more blue-grey.

Saga era Obi-Wan includes a new hat spring action launcher.

The bigger line is a kid-aimed line.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2013

Either that, or better utilize their library of "ultimate" versions of the main characters/troops that they already have.  It has to be cheaper to use those, right?  And maybe bring the price down.

 According to the Hasbro folks, it is cheaper to tool up an all new figure with 6 different parts than to churn out existing figures with twice that many. That's why the GI JOE Retaliation vehicles had 5 point articulated figures instead of the usual repaint/kitbashed driver figures fans came to expect from that brand.

There's a problem with Star Wars as a cheap line. Spider-Man and Iron Man can be recolored ad naseum, so the same molds can and will be used repeatedly. That's something Star Wars can't get away with too much. Night Strike Luke Skywalker and Jungle Camo Vader seem unlikely to be approved by Lucasfilm.

Rebelscum has some info

No figure reveals until NY Toy Fair.  :(

Movie heroes wave 1 will have light up saber Anakin, sandtrooper, red exploding Battle Droid, Evolutions Jango (what, a good figure?), electronic R2,  action feature Maul, spinning Yoda, light up saber Vader, and  a terrible Obi-Wan. IIRC, we knew about those last year. (No packaged pics)

Anakin to Vader seems to be a 12" figure, which explains the high price point listed. The light up saber's  color depends on if it's Anakin or Vader.

Some licensed products sport new "Vader reaching out"/ROTS package design. They'll mesh with your 2005 stuff.  ;)

Ah ok, so I got that reversed.  Can't believe they were still shilling that ****** Vader and RFT's in 2007.

Over-shilling. Remember, they stuck them in a  comic pack together.


1071
Evo Stormtroopers were from 2005, and Tantive IV battle pack was from 2007. I think the belts were the same, but I never owned the EVO clone to stormtrooper sets, just the Tantive trooper and the sandtrooper legends figure reissued from the Evo set.

Those Iron Man Assembler figures with swappable arms and stuff? Still $9.99 according to a press release.

So, advocating less articulation, you'll get it. But less price, not likely.

UK Toy Fair news, Anakin to Vader figure has been "revealed", artwork only picture so far.

Is it 3 3/4"? Wonder if it uses the Iron Man Assembler system?

The paint was bad last year on the Republic Attack Fighter with Anakin (that was last year, right?), Anakin's face was terrible on the few examples I saw.

IIRC, they said any Battle Packs would be exclusives from here on. (hey, were's Battlefields of Naboo?  :P )

The scene after this cut scene makes more sense now.



I was wondering why they asked the greeter to make the decision.

Yoda-packaged Wave 1 has been found in the Philippines.

No photos yet. Battle Pack Maul  is in the wave.

There's sketches of some of the characters at an artist's facebook page or go to Hisstank.com.

It's no suprise that Crimson Asp is gonna be at least 30% recycled Baroness.

Picked up the Darth Maul Returns pack for under $10 at Target. One store sold out of them, the other had 3 left...not gonna make it to 75% off. I don't regret getting it sooner, it's an okay pack but every reason i passed it by was valid. Maul's less than stellar upper body articulation is irritating. I keep wanting to turn him at the waist and the wrists. Opress's lack of ankles hurts, too.

Night Sister is good for what she is.

It's telling how less popular the show is that these hit 50% off. One out of town Target I went to last weekend had nearly a dozen left.

The vintage at Target weren't marked down here. Or there was so little i didn't try to price check them.

I did find the Discover the Force wave at Five Below finally....they got one case out. Picked up the Gungan.

Saw more $5 Saga Legends, last wave, at TJ Maxx/Marshalls, none of the desirable ones. I'd have talked myself into the Super battle droid and shocktrooper if they had the bonus weapons, but the last releases did not.

TRU, the jerks, had the Aayla Secura wave in stock, minus a few figures, since there's no sale this week.

Fun episodes. Shows that good-guy free tend to be like that. Though, it reeked of fanfiction a tad with all these forces coming together. The odds on Pre Vizla finding the Brothers McMaulin' adrift in space? Must be the will of the force. Jabba colluded with the bros., ableit under pressure, but wasn't later killed for it by Sidious?

Vizla repairs the bros before he gets them to ally with him. Not wise.

"They have honour."

"More weakeness."

Nice, very Sith exchange.

I've not read spoiler or the book, but I'm guessing Pre Vizla's future is short. I almost thought they'd kill Sugi.

I liked the lumbering Gamorrean coming at the Mando with his axe and just getting shot. Haw! Also, the "you're telling me that I can find Jabba at Jabba's Palace." Beyond the obvious humor, that also made me laugh as how simply things are named in Star Wars sometimes.

Did the Mando transport appear or just the fighter? I thought I saw the transport breifly once, not sure.

The special collectors 3-packs are being clearanced at Target.

And if you are certain person at another website, that's an excuse to vent at supposedly cheapskate collectors, because, blah, blah...these sets were so good or something that they shouldn't have made it to clearance (even though the earlier ones did).
