The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2014

Why not retire the uninspired Black Series and have, like Yakface suggested, a Power of the Force vintage themed waves with a lot of OT goodness like Sim Aloo, Yakface and others?

I agree with that the current Transformers are tough to transform and I guess I prefer the vintage ones over these complex ones.  Now, doing a transformation with a push of the button?  Intriguing, but hopefully spring-loaded and not electronic.  In fact, didn't they have some spring-loaded ones back in the old days?

As for SW, I think Jesse might have it right.  SW is not going to be their main focus right now.  But I'm curious to know how satisfied Hasbro is with the 6" line?  Has its sales met its expectations?

Yeah, I'm hoping to see the next 6" wave after the one with Bespin Luke. I assume this would be Anakin, Clone Trooper, and Chewbacca, with Obi-Wan being the carry forward figure. (I realize what an asinine choice that is, just passing along what I have been reading in the rumor mills) Really just want to see Chewie.

I hope we find these rumors unfounded.  I'd hate to see a 6" wave dominate by prequel figures.  I just have this feeling that they'll be the 6" version of the TVC TPM wave.

It's too bad that Hasbro can't issue an ultimatum of some sorts (I know that retail giants are thinking of bottom line, etc.), in regards to stock our stuff now or don't get the new movie or Rebels merchandise.  I'm sure once the movie and Rebels are out interest will go up.  But in the end retailers can't bank on the future when current product doesn't move.

A month away from Toy Fair (16-19 Feb) and I thought I'd get a thread started.  What are our expectations?  Any new figure announcements?  Possibly some "Rebels" reveals?  Questions for Hasbro reps (if they do a Q&A).

Also read the news/rumor today that Johnny Depp met with Marvel recently regarding the role of Dr. Strange.

With Timothy Burton as director with Helena Bonham Carter in some role.

Well, maybe Obi-Wan finds solace at the Cantina, after 'witnessing' through the Force (and holocam) the slaughter of his brotherhood... everything he's ever known in his life after being taken away as a child.  There, at the Cantina, he meets some lady and in his moment of weakness takes her back to his place to show her the '7 Disciplines of 'Lightsaber' fighting'.  In his drunken stupor trying to impress her (he shows her how to correctly hold the lightsaber), they tumble into bed... (camera pans away)

I thought of another reason why Obi-Wan may have sired a child but that was dashed by Yoda's saying that 'there is another (hope)' in reference to Leia.  I always meant that to mean that after Obi-Wan and Yoda, only Luke and Leia were left.  You could think that they (Ben and Yoda) thought that the twins were the only once who could destroy Vader, but in the end only what about the Emperor?

PLEASE don't give Obi-Wan a kid.  That's so so so out of character with the OT Kenobi.  >:(

I agree.  If Obi-Wan has a kid then it takes away from Anakin's attachment to Padme and kid that led to his downfall.  I guess if he did have some affair, then I suppose they might say that Obi-Wan 'knew' about it (he seemed to suspect something between them) and didn't say anything to the Council since he went through the same thing.

It was announced yesterday that Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones will be making appearances on The Big Bang Theory.

With the news of Disney determining what's legit or not, I wonder how Hasbro will use that to decide which figures they'll make or not... whether they make any new EU, TCW figures again.

I agree for the most part that it's a good idea.  The EU is mostly authorized fanfiction in the end and whether or not you enjoy or hate it... I've read some and have always felt that while it included beloved characters, it was never true SW to me.  Anyway, to the point, I think if a lot of it is deemed non-canon, then it liberates the writers of the movies to not have to adhere to another writer's history.

I've not read many EU novels.  I liked the Thrawn Trilogy, but others like the Courtship of Leia or Leia's part with Xizor in Shadows were appalling and I felt detracted from her strong personality.  I liked Dark Empire, but didn't like the Clone Emperor at all.

Every human being left alive should be slowly making their way north anyway. Let winter neutralize the walker threat. If there's one thing I learned from WWZ, it's zack don't do cold.

I'd rather off myself than deal with the cold/snow/perpetual winter and gloomy skies.
