The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: December 7, 2016, 02:19 AM »
Really well done stuff like that makes the price kind of a non issue...  The DT is really nicely done too.  Be cool if he had maybe more weapons for diversity but I'll live.  He's pretty perfect all around.

Yeah both Jyn and the Deathtrooper are really great figures, some of their best work. Without knowing enough about th DT gear, I'm surprised you aren't noting that the figure doesn't have a holster for his side arm like the 6" figure does.

Ahh ok, I never saw a case listing for wave 4 so assumed with so many older figures it wasn't a greatest hits case. When I found the wave 4 figures ealier in the year, I found each figure at separate stores. Crazy that there was such a logjam, of course Finn and Poe caused it, but I figured this wave was just not produced at high enough numbers.

JJ - you were one of the first people I thought of when I opened Jyn and played with her rifle. Very cool stuff!

Wasn't sure where to post this since it covers multiple waves, so hopefully this will do..

After being told about it by a buddy, I tonight saw a "greatest hits" revision case of past figures. It included Jedi Luke, Vader, Kylo, Finn, Rey, FO Stormie, Ep7 Han, Ep7 Leia, and Phasma. I forgot to take note on which were doubled but best guess would be Vader, Rey, and Kylo.

So if you're suddenly seeing some older figures not named Finn or Poe show up, this is likely the culprit

Yeah mine came off easily...  Since it's held in with tension perhaps it was just stiff

That's what she said!

Chewie - glad to hear you were able to remove the launcher and can enjoy the bike in all its coolness

I picked one of these up yesterday.

I have to say, it looks really good but has a major problem for me... Hasbro added a big missile launcher to the side that is not removable... you can remove some screws from the side of the bike, but even then it looks like you'd have to actually break the plastic to get to the other set of screws that hold the launcher in place... so stupid...

You're talking about the Rebels animateds Imperial Speeder Bike right? That missile launcher is designed to be removed, it pops right off. Sounds like you got a problematic launcher.

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?

Rob, keep an eye out on HTS' eBay store. They have posted the latter waves on several occasions for retail price and often with free shipping. It has helped me considerably. Right now they have several figures available though not the specific ones you mentioned...

Repeating my list from last year since only one is to be made (and apparently painted poorly based on what has been shown)...

1.) Mara Jade (Emperor's Hand)
2.) Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight - Jabba's Palace)
3.) Corran Horn (Jedi Knight)
4.) Corran Horn (X-Wing Pilot - Green!)
5.) Wedge Antilles (X-Wing Pilot or Snowspeeder Pilot)
6.) Rebel Fleet Trooper (for JJ!)
7.) Grand Admiral Thrawn
8.) Han Solo (Bespin)
9.) Princess Leia (Hoth w/ second head for Bespin)
10.) Snowtrooper Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard)

There are a couple thousand of him and Finn and the repacks and about 100 Kylos at mine. :)

Seriously the reshipment we got, overkill.

Keep an eye out on that store JJ. Out here in the burbs of Chicagoland, a couple of stores marked the TBS figures on clearance. I had some luck finding a Poe and Finn for $5 last week, also got their Resistance X-Wing for $25 ( for the price a fun toy!)

Around me, Target has been the place to get the Ezra speeder. I've seen it probably 4-5 times, the only new thing out there

I saw the Ezra speeder today.  The light saber in the one I saw looked a little flimsy, so I passed.  But I did notice that this version of Ezra has the scars on his face that he's had since late in season one of Rebels.

I picked this up last week and it's a fun toy. Nice detailing and doesn't feel as cheap as some other vehicles. The blade is removable from the hilt, that may have played a part in the flimsiness you saw. The blade and hilt can be stored in the rear compartment where the engine should be.

After reading Dresells description of his Wal-Mart Jabba I had to pull mine out of storage and found it fused to a Max Rebo piano and a cinema scene stand. The piano is ruined and now I don't know what to do with the  Jabba. Very disappointing.

Great write up, makes me want to consider getting one of these guys if/when he can be found at retail.

13
I'm not sure I can make a list of top 10 wants for the 6" line that wouldn't include a lot of figures they will obviously get to. But I'll give it a shot, who knows one of these could win.  ;D

1.) Mara Jade (Emperor's Hand)
2.) Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight - Jabba's Palace)
3.) Corran Horn (Jedi Knight)
4.) Corran Horn (X-Wing Pilot - Green!)
5.) Wedge Antilles (X-Wing Pilot or Snowspeeder Pilot)
6.) Rebel Fleet Trooper (for JJ!)
7.) Grand Admiral Thrawn
8.) Han Solo (Bespin)
9.) Princess Leia (Hoth w/ second head for Bespin)
10.) Snowtrooper

Droid Factory 2013 / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = NOT Dead in 2015?
« on: May 21, 2015, 11:15 PM »

If anything, I think praising them at the $20 price is kind of like saying, "I accept $20 for repaints/repacks as a great idea!", which seems like a bad stance to take.

JJ, that's the biggest issue I see with this, as well as the overall increase in prices for figures. An acceptance of high prices for low quality or things we have seen before. People ******** themselves over these  figures is nuts, why would anyone want to pay $20 for yet another clone repaint or flaky battle droid?
