If it's droids, they'd better be unique and new, not a bunch of repainted old sculpts.

I saw that, too.  The thing is, Adam has been making the rounds in the comments sections of several sites.  And damn, is he stirring the pot!  He admitted himself that "it's marketing".  But he's getting people talking and placing orders without even having seen a single image of this new offering.

If it's a dud, it'll be just as easy to cancel the order as it was to create it.

Never before made characters with Black Series caliber articulation?

Yes please.

Down to $75 today.

If it hits $60, I'm in just for the hell of it.

Thanks for the tip!  I'll definitely keep an eye on that.

I've seen Rey get down to about $12 or $13 recently on Amazon.  But the wave with unmasked Kylo Ren and the FO Stormtrooper Commander?  I don't think I ever saw it at retail.  I bought mine through Amazon or HTS when they were available at MSRP, and those went very quickly.

The Stormtrooper Commander was the only one I saw at retail, at a TRU.  I haven't seen Rey and Han for less than $15.77 on Amazon, and I've been looking every day.  And the weird part is that those prices are to buy them directly from Amazon where before they'd always been on point with MSRP.

HTS has just said they're coming soon every time I look there, once a week or so, for the last few months.

Not sure if I should just overpay now or if there's a chance they're still on the way.  Maybe Comic Con will shed some light on what they're doing?

Sorry, just saw this... he definitely didn't come from Asia, I ended up with him as an extra.  My best guess is still that he came out of the MTT I bought on clearance at TJ Maxx, I just can't figure why he'd be in a baggie and not a tray.

So it's been months and I still never saw Ren with his hood down, Han, or Resistance Rey.  Rey and Han can be had for about $17 or $18 on Amazon, Ren seems to be more like $25 - I figure I could do a little better on eBay, but would prefer not to.

Have those come and gone or are we still expecting them?

It's ok Rob...we still like you no matter what you think of us.   ;D

In all seriousness...I'm just happy to see more SA figures.  Hopefully, I'll be able to find them on a peg somewhere!

Of all the various Star Wars sites....I visit one.

The funny thing is that even for all the political nonsense over the years, I don't think there's anyone who frequents JD that I'm including in that.   :)

If it's going to be substantially better than what's in that photo, I'm amazed that they'd show it at all.

You can't have a "ambassador" for the hobby so he claims act like this...he has his right to his opinions but he acts that he speaks for the collectors.  It's does give us collectors a bad rep.

This is the type of notion that makes me queasy when it comes to this hobby.  For better or for worse, after 21 years I still enjoy collecting, but I can't stand half of the people who are into it. 

There aren't any ambassadors, authorities, or special people on these websites (except Jeff of course), we're all just a bunch of people with some amount of disposable income buying toys way past the age that we should be buying toys at.  The people who start feeling all self-important because they carved out a platform for themselves on the internet and then take it seriously enough to treat other people poorly or say stupid things like this Harrison guy are the worst kind of nonsense.  It's guys like him who make me happy I can buy this stuff online now instead of having to interact with people in toy aisles.

Enjoy it, or don't, but toy collecting isn't life or death, it's toys.  It should be fun and friendly or you should quit, immediately.

Paul who?

Seriously, never heard of the guy.  I suppose as a show of solidarity, I'll continue to never visit JTA or know who he is.

The internet is a cesspool with good and bad apples floating around in it.  Collecting communities on the internet are no different.  I'm not trying to be dismissive of your point or request or observations, but best thing you could do is just not use sites like that and eventually all that'll be left there is people who do tolerate, or approve of that kind of behavior, and then they can have each other.
