The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2015

Jango

All 6" so far.

Fan Choice poll will be annual.

6" TFA TIE Fighter.... with pilot for $170

As far as it sounds, no news on 3.75".  Edit... sounds like only mention of the Rebels Season 2 Inquisitor.

They have regular retailer exclusive production runs.  They just found a way to partner up with Entertainment Earth (not HTS) to sell them at the show first so they could call them "SDCC exclusive", even though it's just a regular TRU exclusive item being sold at SDCC first.

Got it.  So, would you say in your opinion that is the same for Funko and their various items that are SDCC exclusives and also found at Barnes and Noble, etc?  Maybe that explains that, then.

I don't have twitter, but would like to ask again when they plan to release 6" Han in Carbonite in regular packaging.  I'm bummed I can't get this awesome piece, or Salacious Crumb for that matter.  Make the packaging different enough for those that can't make it to the cons or don't luck out when they are on HTS.  They are finally doing it for their shared exclusives with TRU.  Just seems like a win-win since they already have the molds done.

Not sure what you mean about finally doing it with TRU shared exclusives?

Examples are (and perhaps I didn't word this well) the Greedo/Han 2 pack and the Rancor/Jabba multipack that were/are at SDCC and TRU.

Got. To. Have. It. Now. (And resell on ebay).

I actually just saw some comments elsewhere where people are now angry they've just realized that it's 1:30 PST. Sigh. Not even kidding.

Really?  I guess people don't have enough real-world problems to deal with.

I get what your saying about it from a story standpoint, but I'd find it hard to believe that Tatooine would be devoid of any news after the fall of the Republic.  I would think the propaganda machine would be working overtime for any citizen to report on any Jedi that have fled and gone underground... and I would think that an image of the Emperor's Right Hand man would be menacing enough to strike fear into the heart of anyone and there'd be rumors going around of a man in black with his helmet and breathing that goes by the name Vader making it to all parts of the galaxy.

I guess that's why when Vader says that he sense a presence he hasn't felt since... I always took it to mean Ben and that their last encounter was on Mustafar.... (the whole master and apprentice conversation during their duel) otherwise, if Vader and Kenobi face off again, then somehow Ben 'wins' again and escapes, it'll make Vader look poorly as a Sith. 

But of course, Vader would know that Ben is still alive, so I would think he'd be looking for him for revenge... so... I don't know.  It's tough since the writers are already painted in a corner with pre-existing storylines (like the prequels)... if they go this route.

Yep, I'm happy to just wait it out and pick one up cheap after the furor dies down. None of their exclusives have been that hard to get after the fact if one is patient.

I still haven't gotten that Fett/Carbonite set.  Couldn't get it on HTS when it went up and wasn't going to feed the scalpers by paying an outrageous price for it on ebay.

In that temple scene, Palpatine uses "Lord Vader" to address Anakin, doesn't he?

162
Not necessarily that .  Obi-wan could have learned information about Vader from the holonet or information from smugglers or Asohka.  Anakin was already known as Vader on Mustafar.

163
That's crazy.  And I feel for the guy who was going to get one for $5 over price just to be rid of the headache, only to have lost an extra $100 in the process.  That trooper was definitely not worth it... and getting punched.  Sad.

I've always kind of imagined he just lived out his days in the desert, studying Jedi stuff and watching over Luke.  I just assumed he never really did much because why would he?

Exactly.  I doubt he'd leave Tatooine to fight an Inquisitor.  And if he's fighting Inquisitors on Tatooine, that would ring bells that Tatooine is a hot spot for Jedi activity.

Han being in the Imperial Academy is something that has been fodder for the EU but never made it into the films.  I'm not sure if the life debt got mentioned in the OT, but it was certainly implied.  But the Lando story about the Falcon is canon from TESB.

1. No, I believe Han being in the Academy was from the early books before EU really heated up in the 90s.  Still, it's probably considered Legacy at this point.
2. The life debt was also an EU thing. 

But as I said, I don't care what they do as long as it's a good story.

I forgot to mention about Solo's Wife that was recently revealed in the comics.  I'm not reading the comics, so it would be interesting if that would be included in the films and how that plays with Han's relationship with Leia.  But I would prefer not to have a love triangle or really a love interest in the movies.  Let it be an adventure film.
