Rogue One / Re: What Would You Like to See for the 40th Anniversary?
« on: January 18, 2017, 08:38 PM »
The focus, either Hasbro's, Disney's or both is probably with the new trilogy and not the stand-alones.  Especially since they are just years apart.  I think I heard Rogue One is the rogue movie, being the first non-trilogy movie, so they were being cautious in the offerings in case it bombed.  But being Star Wars, there's going to be interest.

That said, Rogue One was visually impressive in terms of the character designs and sets, while TFA was rather bland in my opinion.  I'd love to see more Rogue One figures, especially in TBS 3.75".

The moral of this week's episode is never, and I mean NEVER leave Zeb in charge.

Lots of nods in this episode.  "Screamers," "The Black Hole," and the recon droid is a nod to a McQuarrie design.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors

I wonder if this isn't a 6 inch set, because I kind of don't see where a Probe droid / Vader set would fit in within the 3.75 line. I mean it could be an exclusive so what do I know. I loved that thing so curious to see what's up with it.

Wasn't the probe droid rumored for the 6"?  I don't remember for certain but I believe Vader was going to be re-released.  Of course, Vader is always in circulation so it could be 3.75" as well.

Question about the soundtrack.  Does it have any of Saw Gererra's theme in it?  I looked at the track listings but I didn't see anything that might have it.  Thanks!

I was surprised when they closed the Godfather's out by Crossroads which has more traffic and leave the one on Uni open, which as you said was a ghost town.

I did a list of 40 for 40 in the "Hey Hasbro" Tread.  Here's what I posted.

Honorable mention: Rebel Fleet Trooper (with working holster!!)  I'd probably switch out on of the Imperials for the RFT

It's a mix of new, repaints/re-release and kitbashes.  Wishful thinking, I know, but it would be nice.

That toy aisle rocked back in the day, Darby.  It's definitely not the same, but I was like you hanging out there while my mother shopped.

Looks like my local store is gone, so I can only hope that Kmart no longer gets any exclusives.

If you read the novel, Tarkin’s intent is definitely to destroy the base.  He feels the tropical nature of the moon makes those stationed there lax in their duties and very incompetent, like it’s an early retirement: the General in charge of Scarif Citadel (Ramda) has allowed the Rebels to infiltrate the moon and into the Citadel, the admiral in charge of the fleet apparently has lost the battle above the moon (seeing that 2 Star Destroyers are gone along with the defense shield), and Krennic has allow severe security breaches underneath his nose that are unforgivable to Tarkin.  He sees destroying the Citadel as the most viable option and removing several weak links within the Empire.

I've got the Sabine with peg holsters in my shipment.  I think to be screen accurate, I'd need the one without, right?  I am holding off opening her anyways to see if I can find one with better eye paint apps... same with Leia.

I got the Pilot variant, but I don't think that matters much to me.

I'm hoping there's another variant for the Snowtrooper that makes the body glove more white.  It seems too brown or orange.

I think the shot was close enough to wipe the tower out anyway, just like how Saw bought it on Jedha.  Perhaps Tarkin didn't have an angle to directly hit the tower but take out the array?

Did that guy even have any lines? What a random choice.

Glad to see Fenn Rau back in the mix. Curious what Rebels we will be getting after that.

I think he's the second most prominent trooper behind Malshi(?)

I'd say Tarkin was trying to stop the transmission from beaming off planet as fast as he could to keep the rebels from obtaining the DS plans.  So he aimed for the dish because it was in range first (?).  It also allowed the drama at the end as well.

Sabine variant?

Or the comm link switch being located on some random control box out near a landing platform/bunker
