Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One

I was thinking X-Wing, too, but then wouldn't it be Rogue Leader?  So maybe it's different.  I heard of the Sabine rumors.  Guess I'll wait and see.

Hopefully, Disney and Hasbro are smart enough to have a movie line for episode 8 and one for the 40th anniversary of A New Hope.

Other Collectibles / Re: Star Wars Nendoroid Figures

I still can't get over the explosion of Star Wars figures from Japan...  so much new product there at a time when new Star Wars toys/collectibles in the US is dropping to 15 year lows.

And yet no new Crack-bricks for you.  I've gotten over my addiction.  ;)

But these 5 POA offerings of characters that have been previously offered in versions with super articulation and great sculpting really fall flat for me.

That's my feeling.  Didn't I just buy these 20 years ago.  True, it's stretching things with their He-Man likenesses, but some were actually pretty good pre-Phantom Menace.  It's amazing when Hasbro is offering up things that we've already bought (and some have sold off these 5 PoA figures since they own the better version) and are now re-buying the 5 PoA figure again in this line.  Can't complain about Hasbro since they are making money again off figures we already own.

Now, if Hasbro wanted to use this line and offer up Astromechs (new, never been done along with R2 and others), Podracers, Imperial Dignitaries, etc and use TBS (or whatever the premium 4" line will be called) for figures that need to have more than 5 PoA then that would be great.  Do I see it happening?  No.

ARgghh! Was not expecting spoilers in the toy thread!  :(

Stay off the Internet, please. 

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)
« on: March 3, 2015, 10:10 AM »
Season One is wrapping up soon...  about 40 mins or so?  I'm kind of surprised how little chatter is going on among the collecting world.  There are either a lot less folks around than in 2008, or it's just not caught on quite the same TCW did. 

I guess all the complaining is happening post-episode about spoilers and what-not.  Are people really that self-centered and spoiled themselves?  Have they not learned to stay off social media if you haven't watched an episode yet and expect no one to talk about it.  I wonder how adults handled it back during the water-cooler chat days?

Of those 27 figures listed, 7 are EU (not sure which are canon or not), and possibly 8 if you include vinty-deco DSC.  That could mean they may never show up.  That stinks for those that would like them.

I was also impressed that they didn't get her right into another relationship right away. 

Yeah.  It's apparent she still loves Steve.  But in the end, she realizes that he is gone and let's him go (pouring his blood into the East River)... setting up for possibly something with Sousa in Season 2.

Are they planning to make more of these someday?

That's how it feels to me- that they're building up to Season 2.  The Doc and Zola, Sousa letting his feelings known for Peggy, and Peggy spilling Steve's blood into the East River (in a sense, letting him go so that she move on and be with Sousa).

As for Dottie living, perhaps there's more to her (Winter Soldier) than we know?  I thought we'd also get some info on the Winter Soldier project but maybe I'll have to wait until Season 2.  Also, what's Dottie's purpose now? Rescue the Doc and Zola.

I enjoyed it.  Good fun.

So it's packed with the Phantom and TIE, then.  So, they are hitting, it's just the AT-DP is popular.

Not yet.

Do you know when? has it listed "in stock" near me, but all that are there when I go are the TIE and Phantom.  Is there a second wave to this?

Of course, the exclusive has the same dpci # as the Slave I and Jedi Starfighter.  ::)

Steve, that article is about the Q&A at JTA. 

I see that... interesting.  So, misquoting or damage control?

Has anyone else seen this article?  EW:  Hasbro thinks 'Star Wars Rebels' has 'plenty' of female figures. No

I think JTA asked a similar question at TF and that was the response they got.

I think Hasbro has also under supported and largely missed an opportunity with Rebels. 

Especially when the show is aimed at the youth market.  Obviously, some of us adults watch it and some of us with our children.  We are getting our children into the show, the excitement of the Star Wars world, just like we did growing up as kids.  I think Hasbro is missing the opportunity to get more young costumers to buy their product for the next ten years or so with Rebels and through extension, the movies.

The Facebook Funko Toys Legacy page is have a Q and A today with one of the guys that works on Legacy (overall), so maybe we'll hear something.
