MC arrived today. Just sitting there staring at me to get my work done....
I struck out again with my box from NCS (0-3 for the last three Deluxe releases). Good luck to the rest of you who ordered from them!
Got my shipping notice from NCS at long last today.
The Imperial Commander on Ebay sold today for $255. Anyone here get him?
As poor as the chases seem to be, I am still pretty jazzed by the basic 6. And I agree with the comment made earlier that if Antilles had been a chase, we would all be dropping $300 to get him. The TIE pilot is such a good throwback to the vintage figure. Leia is a big improvement over the toilet paper dress version from the early bird set. Vader looks supremely retro and will be great with the dx3 Ben. And antilles is a great addition, sort of the Garindan of this wave. The Dignitary is pretty cool too, and again, I'm glad he didn't end up being the chase- he would have gone for insane prices as well.
Maybe it's my nature, but I just have to disagree. I'm glad you guys are fired up and looking at this stuff as positive. To me however I'm seeing Hasbro deja vu all over again.
Leia is better, but I think the early bird set is fine and while yeah, an improvement is welcome, it's not really necessary.
Another Vader? Really? Cuz we were all hoping for it? I'm sort of ok with it if it's a more vintage-y version but I still don't find it necessary.
Another Tie Pilot? ****, I still have five from the previous release I never moved. We complain about $10-11 Hasbro figures for rehashes but because it's from Japan $14 is ok? Not for me.
R2? Yawn should cover it because we only have how many of him/it?
I'm good with Antilles (though not a figure I could personally care about owning) and the Dignitary though but I can wait for a $60 set some time down the road. The chases? They suck. 'Nuff said.
Someone did...it's sold already!!!
If he's a Commander, where's his rank insignia?There was also a geeky uproar ...
I think they are saying that they opened a case and found this chase. They listed it as 1:48 because they opened 4 boxes. There's likely another case with a different chase in one of the 4 boxes, just like all the other deluxe releases.
I think it is just mislabed as 1:48 when it technically should be 1:96.I believe they are Imperial Technicians and can be seen in the first few scenes of ROTJ where Vader's ship is arriving in the control room...also note the Imperial Logos on the shoulders
Hasbro made this figure back in POTJ
Hasbro called this figure "Imperial Officer" not Imperial Technician. Officer is a generic term for any number of ranks, including a commander. I'm sticking with IMPERIAL COMMANDER.
