Buy them.
Wait a few years, try and resell them at 4 times what you paid as "rare cancelled figures"  ::)
Keep listing them for years and years at that same price even though none ever sell.   :P

Saw it today. It was okay. Entertaining but nowdays everything's so CGI overload, that it becomes a bit numbing after awhile.
 I think having the final conflict/crisis around a fictional country didn't give as much stakes, even if the whole world was also at risk.
Baron Strucker becomes another underused bit player...he could've been on Agents of SHIELD, not like Thomas Kretchsmann hasn't done tv before (THE RIVER).

So retail wouldn't take them? Or what? I sense another Hasbro half-truth...or "what we told you about Droid Factory was true...from a certain point of view."

Reminiscent of the post Rise of Cobra GI JOE line that was axed with product made, even packaged, because they wanted to dump movie likenesses and go another direction.

Is that Pablo Jill? Didn't get him. I'm not sure I ever saw him.

Everything I've read is that it is unchanged. CHANGING WOULD COST MONEY/EFFORT.

Disney who has all the money in the world being cheap skates and not letting the team finish the episodes.
I'm glad there's more Star Wars coming, but I still hate it has to be via Disney.

Saw this at JTA
This is what Hasbro gets when they pack reissued figures with new ones.

My, Ezra, how you've grown!  :P

Target near me sold out of Rebels/Legends...if they ever had any to begin with, which I doubt.
Saw two packs at Wal-Mart with the Leia/Stormtrooper Luke and Hoth 2 packs, both Heras were awful. One had a molding scar on her face. The other looked like a victim of domestic abuse. Wasn't that interested in the other packs.

Would those imperial officer caps fit 6" figures? (pegs aside)

Just swap out an old Jabba and return the set to the store. 
I know how Jesse likes figure swapper jokes.   ;)

I'm still the only who remembers years ago when someone at Hasbro said multipacks would either be all-new or all-reissue. That person must've been reassigned.  :-X

Ebay seller Viper's Kingdom has lots of cheap Scuba Clones (5 for $15), but without gear.

I'm wondering if that rumor that Hasbro is trying to get out of making 3.75 inch figures by giving us crap quality is actually true.

Not working, too many people are eating the crap up.

That was a step down from last season's finale.
But at least it was 90 minutes, which means, what...45 minutes of actual show? Seriously, I sometimes watch Star Trek TNG reruns on BBC America and I've noticed that they cut scenes out. One ended on a different scene than the original broadcast version.

Summer "companion" series, Fear The Walking Dead, will only be 6 episodes in season 1. Though they are committed to a season 2, you'd think they'd made the order higher considering they've debuted other new shows with 10 episodes (like Low Winter Sun, which flopped).

Walking up on a camp of unknown people at night would be dangerous.  Aaron waited until morning to contact Rick's group.
