Those three all look pretty good.

Really wish Hasbro would release a combined Wave 4/5 case with 2x all six of the new wave 4/5 figures from both the Jungle/Space and Snow/Desert assortments. Online retailers must cringe when they see case pack ratios like this, it essentially shoots them in the foot right out of the gate.

While I know it seems odd - but I am very happy to see that the three carry-forwards will all feature the same build-a-weapon pieces that they originally came with.

Looking forward to getting the helmetless Kylo Ren figure - too bad the hood is up, I don't recall him ever having the hood up but the helmet off... maybe it's from the cut scene where he interrogates Zuvio?  ;)

79
I decided to hold on to the extra Kylo since the changes are fairly significant in my mind and I like having both.  :)

Just out of curiosity, what are your plans for the 6" Rey?  ;)

Not sure, probably gonna keep her now too because I realized last night they updated BB-8 too with a new wash that much more clearly defines his various sections. Would you be interested in just the Rey figure?

I actually found her in a Wave 3 case on my way home from work last Friday, so I'm good now, but yeah, I would have wanted BB-8 too...

Having the Poe from the Target 2-pack has me really wanting to at least grab the heroes from TFA as well. So basically Finn, Rey, BB-8, Poe, Chewie & Han. If they release Leia and/or Maz, then I'll get them as well. I'm still on the fence when it comes to the Guavian Enforcer, Constable Zuvio and Asty...

I'm seeing that this wave is hitting with much more frequency than the Wave 2 case did. Which if you're looking purely for TFA characters, this is the case to find/get - with 2x of Kylo Ren, Finn, Rey & Poe, plus 1x of the FO Stormtrooper, it's definitely a good case from that standpoint. I would have thought that only 1 FO Stormtrooper per case would have been a bad thing, but so far, from my experience, the FO Stormtrooper seems to be the third most likely figure to still be sitting around when you find remnants of a case - with Luke being #1, Han being #2 and Kylo Ren being #4...

The Force Awakens / Re: TFA 3.75" First Order Legion 7-Pack Box Set
« on: January 9, 2016, 12:00 PM »
Just got the sets I ordered - one to keep in package, two to open...

I've only opened the Desert quadrant of my first opener box so far since that gives me access to the Riot and Heavy Artillery troopers - both are great, really wish they had just released these as single carded figures. Like why couldn't the 2nd Stormtrooper that came out have omitted the blaster and included the baton and shield instead? What could the difference in cost have been pennies?

The Heavy Artillery Trooper armor vest is very cool - probably could get it off and put it on a SA trooper, but I'm not going to bother - maybe if the TBS line at WalMart sticks around, Hasbro will release a SA version of this character just by combining the 5POA version's accessories with the SA trooper figure, seems like a no brainer if you ask me.

82
Found a case of Wave 3 last night on my way home from work - so I grabbed the Rey/BB-8 out of it since I hadn't picked her up yet. Originally I was only going to get First Order characters, but that darn Poe/Stormtrooper 2-pack prompted me to want to get a set of the heroes, so I'm probably going to order Chewie from Hasbro Toy Shop and also pick up Han when I finally stumble onto that wave.

Not sure if I want to bother with the Guavian Enforcer or Constable Zuvio - I suppose if I pick up a Zuvio, I'd be helping "the cause" hehe

Okay - so in order to get free shipping from Hasbro Toy Shop, I went ahead and picked up the 6" Chewie, Pilot Poe Dameron and Guavian Enforcer figures. I know several locations locally where Zuvio is still hanging around, so I'll pick him up on the way home tonight... Then all I'll need for TFA 6" 'completeness' will be to find Asty, Han, Finn and the Flametrooper as well as pick up one of those big TIEs (still not sure about that one).

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Petition to have Lucas direct Episode IX
« on: January 8, 2016, 07:21 PM »
Proof that it's impossible to please all fans. There's the group that hated the Prequels, the group that prefers the Prequels, the group that hates TFA, the group that hates the Special Editions, etc....

I wonder how many people end up overlapping into many of the "hate X, Y or Z" groups. Like I'd love to meet and talk with someone that hates the special editions, hates the prequels and hates TFA, but would love to have George Lucas back to direct EP9. Their logic (or lack of it) that justifies their position would be truly amusing to behold.


84
Hasbro probably won't make too much more from TFA.

I agree. There's the next two waves of both 5POA assortments. One more wave of WalMart's TBS 3.75" and a handful of new Armor-up and 2-pack sets. I think that's going to be "it" for TFA-focus of the line.

I doubt we ever get "old lady Leia" in figure form and if rumors are true that Luke and Rey have scenes on that island right at the beginning of EP8, then I would think the first wave for EP8 will include Luke and a repack of Rey from the end of TFA. I could see them maybe doing a "EP8 Preview" 2-pack or something with those two characters in it for Christmas next year.

On a positive note I have a set of TBS wave 3 figures that I just picked up this morning for anyone who is interested, please send me a PM if you are, thanks.

Update: The set of Poe, Rey & Finn are now claimed...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: January 6, 2016, 05:57 PM »
Definitely 6" figures - tell-tale signs:
1) Kylo Ren's Lightsaber - only the 6" version that came with the first 6" version released had that single-piece blade that can be removed from the hilt. The K-Mart Starkiller Base version featured a lightsaber with non-removeable blades, as does the smaller 3.75" version
2) the knees - specifically looking at the Poe figure - looks like the 6" knee design and not the "ball-pin-joint" style of the 3.75" figures.

That being said, there's no reason why the digital sculpts for many of the 6" figures couldn't be down-scaled to 3.75" - so I wouldn't be surprised if we did get that version of Poe, I also think we might get Finn in his Armor and Rey in the end-of-the-movie outfit as well - makes sense to get the three new main heroes in their two outfits from the movie...

I had Wave 1 out on Force Friday here, and they sold oddly well, but then another shipment hit and sorta sold steadily but then hit a stagnant point and then blew out on the weekend TFA released ultimately.  They got TONS of both shipments of wave 1 in too.  I don't recall those ever being available online either were they?  Nobody was really looking for them though either so maybe they were and just nobody cared?  I watched the wave 2/3 like a hawk online just incase, but yeah.

Yes, Wave 1 was available for ordering online and when my local WalMarts were completely void of them, I ordered a single set from the website just to cover my MIB/MOC/MIP collection. We didn't get them in stores until late Sept/early Oct in my area - and Wave 1 did hit in much greater quantity than Waves 2 or (so far) Wave 3.
