B&M aren't really stocking those and it doesn't pay to try to luck out on 1 figure (or 4 of the same character) on the pegs at Targets.  TRU hasn't been restocking 3.75" stuff  lately in my area.  6" has been better at Wal-Mart, but they don't have 3.75" at all.  In regards to MS/SL/Rebels, the pegs are stocked but product isn't moving.  That's why I bought the last few TBS figures of the line online before TFA stuff hits.  I might never find it in store... I had more faith in finding the 6" Boushh and Iggy in the stores but when Amazon had them for $16, I pulled the trigger.

I want better articulated figures... I guess I was spoiled for the past 10+ years.  To see the route of going back to 5 PoA could possibly be the future, then I'm out.  Even 5 points was supposed to make it cheaper for everyone, but the prices are getting up to where TBS figures were a year ago. *shrugs*  So they aren't really a deal in my opinion if I were interested.  Plus, if I wanted 5 PoA, I'd just pull out the vintage Kenner figures.  I guess I hope that Hasbro continues to put out wanted super-articulated figures and not just the usual rehashes of Vader, Fett, and Obi-Wan.  Bring on the Tonnikas, Tvizzzit and other cantina denizens and Jabba's Palace goons and Imperial Dignitaries. 

That said, I think I'm refraining from TFA figures.  Space issues is one thing, money is another... plus, I'm thinking that these are going to be Disney's World of Star Wars now and not necessarily Lucas'.  I may pick up a couple if the figure is cool looking, and as long as there's more than 5 points of articulation to them.  But I have never bought something Star Wars just because it's got the logo on it.

Less collecting competition I guess.

True.  But you'd have to have Jeff, Jayson, Dave, Justin and some other guys that live in the Twin Cities give up collecting and I don't see that happening with them.

Pulse is ironic, considering how near-dead Star Wars has been at retail.

Well, the Pulse isn't just aimed at Star Wars: there's Joe, Transformers and My Little Pony... so maybe some of those have been keeping the pulse?  Probably MLP.  My daughter is big into these now, so I'm still buying Hasbro product when there's no SW to buy.

Since it's been confirmed, James Horner.  :'( 

Some great soundtracks of his accompanied and made movies spectacular.  Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan being one.

I don't recall the modern TVC one having two blades Steve?  You sure?

He had landmines, two blasters, and the blade but I thought that was it?

Yeah, I looked through pics and verified it came with one blade.  But now I'm not sure where the other curved blade came from.  I will have to consult with Jayson about who comes with such a knife... if it is indeed Star Wars.

He's got a meat cleaver but not the other one.  The Modern "vintage" figure came with the blaster, rifle and two different bladed items.  This only has one.

EDIT: Well, I looked at the Slideshow pics and they only had the one blade and the blaster holster like the Hasbro 6" one, and I looked at the Saga one in an archive... so now I'm wondering where I got the other blade from?  ???

What if there's a tie at #6?  TIEbreaker? 😃

Thanks for the correction, Jeff.  The Duros was cool.  I'd still take a McQuarrie line of 6" figures, though, even if the first one was #4.  ;)

IG-88 will be the highlight of this wave for me.

Actually, now that I have this, it's missing the machete or knife, yet there's the sheath for it on his back.  Plus, the elbow joints are small and I worried they'd snap.  I was disappointed.  Boushh was much better.

It would kind of be cool if the first 6" Fan Choice figure was the same as the 3.75" (McQuarrie Stormtrooper).

I agree about the 3 remaining Bounty Hunters.  Especially since Hasbro was asked about them and they said they weren't coming anytime soon.  Sabine would be cool, too.  I put down Carbonite Han since he hasn't had a wide-release yet and some of us weren't able to get the SDCC version when it was put up on HTS and want to get it at a decent price.

Actually, there are some very cool votes on this list.

I understand that logic, McMetal, and I'd be glad for people to get the ones they want.  I'm only getting a few characters I really want and not going all out in this line (since I already have the 4" counterparts)... of course, I still don't know what the cut-off is for me so that's a problem.

JTA is reporting the following are rumored to be coming... if that changes anyone's vote or not:

Jango Fett

So, is this list (though I don't believe we've done the ToC and a few other wishlists) being turned in at SDCC or is it on the backburner due to the 6" Fan Choice poll?

1. Luke Skywalker Farmboy ANH (with Lightsaber, Stormtrooper Utility belt, Blaster)
2. Princess Leia (Tantive IV, Death Star) ANH (with blaster)
3. Obi-Wan Kenobi ANH (with lightsaber and cloak)
4. Lando Calrissian (ESB Bespin)
5. Han Solo (Carbonite Block)
6. 4-LOM
7. Zuckuss
8. Dengar
9. Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard)
10. Emperor's Royal Guard

I see Hasbro didn't exclude EU from the list.
