Has anyone seen a transcript or video of the Q&A anywhere?

And apparently I was wrong.

Looks like 0 TFA was what I meant - outside of that battlepack we already saw.

So despite a new movie and Super 7 promising tons of new Reaction stuff, the only things that came out of Toy Fair that fit my collecting focus were a few Rebels figures, a Reaction Aliens set, and a terribly conceived Hoth Lego set.

What a bust.

So the fine people posting at Rebelscum are saying that Hasbro didn't show a single 3 3/4" item. 

At this point I'm assuming that's accurate?

That's a horribly uninspired set.

I was under the impression there was much more to come - that was a sneak preview from last night.

Well for 5 POA that's a really great looking figure.

But yeah, that's an equally disappointing way to distribute it.  Hopefully the paint apps on the repacks are at least different enough that they're kind of variations.

If we don't see Luke and Leia action figures...

I remember back in college I wanted one but thought $250 was outrageous... nowadays I think $1000 is outrageous for something like that.

A year or two ago I paid $6 for a custom cape and am just going with that.  It displays nicely and it'll do.

That'd be awesome, just PM me with how much and where to send it.

Thanks either way.

Okay, I gathered up some images of the build-a-weapon parts I think I'm missing, does anyone happen to have any extras they'd like to sell before I go off ordering figures I don't need?

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII

???  Really?  They all have a very different feel to me.  Even the fringe stories that should bomb (Guardians, Ant Man) have been fantastic and huge box office successes.  What don't you like?

I think Matt is comparing the basic things principles across the movies.  Lots of action mixed with a little humor and characters that don't take themselves too seriously.  It seems to be working pretty well for them so far.

Sorry, I missed this somehow until now... I didn't see Ant Man yet, but I did really like Guardians.  When I say they've gotten stale I mostly mean the Avengers and all the individual movies that go with them.  Thor, Thor 2, Captain American 1-3, Iron Man 1-3, Avengers 1 and 2... they're all blurring together to me.  Especially the last few I've watched (Winter Soldier and Avengers 2).  It seems like Hulk and Hawkeye and Black Widow just keep showing up to show up... the stories seem to be getting less exciting...

To me at least.  I'm just hoping Disney finds enough ways to differentiate the films from each other - to really let the one-off's be legitimate one-off's.  Guardians is a good example of things that still work better, and I don't think it feels as problematic to me mostly because it has nothing to do with those other ones.

Just my 2 cents... Star Wars always left people wanting more, with 2 or 3 years between films, and then 10 or 15 years between trilogies.  My fear is that we get a movie a year for the next 10 years and everyone just gets completely sick of it and it gets really hard to keep things as exciting as they are at this point in the game.

Even better.

Thanks for clearing all that up.

Yes, of course they have the little illustrations packed in, but I was wondering if there was something a little more comprehensive, maybe with photos.  The illustrations in the instructions are really just outlines of the shapes and don't mention what comes with what figure... it all just seemed a little abstract when I was looking at it yesterday so I wanted to see if there was a better way to sort through it all.

Looks like I'll just dig up photos of all the figures I've skipped and cross reference that with the instructions to make a list.

I hadn't realized that the basic figure checklist numbering separates it by build-a-weapon, that will be helpful for sure.
