Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)
« on: April 27, 2016, 11:20 PM »
Very geeked out today. I'm working all week with a guy who was in the camera department on Rouge One during principal photography. Funny thing is I remember working with him last year on his last job just before he left to go work on it. I did ask about one spoiler though:

The rebels get the Death Star plans.  :P

He then pointed out that another guy on our same gig did The Force Awakens.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors

I'd be super excited if it wasn't for the new 5 POA standards and smaller ship molds. Now I need to take the wait and see approach.

I know it's not exact, but I'd use a few of those Han holsters for my Rebel Fleet Troopers.

I noticed that EE now has them listed as shipping in May. Wondering of there was a behind the scenes issue with the wave.

I haven't even found any of the super-articulated First Order stormtroopers at WalMart yet

You can order them at Free shipping to your local store.

I've seen one of these displays in only one the five Targets i've been to this week. Nothing new/exciting in it.

My buddy found a Kanan for me. Haven't heard of another case of this wave hit this week though. So weird that not one case of the Hux wave hit around here.

Picked up the Sidon Ithono 2-pack because the figures look pretty darn cool.

Yeah, the astromech would be a bummer without the wire legs, but the others are very welcome additions. Now onto hoping they're better distributed on the west coast...

So, what's the deal? Did this wave get swapped with 5? I've seen no hint of it around.

Somehow I managed to pre-order the other day when she went up. Hoping not to have my order canceled this time.

I was shocked when I heard that Asty was even in the running for this line -

Could be worse. Could be Snap.  ;)

I kind of agree though. Han is a must along side Phasma.

My theory is that Zuvio was in this wave, but once Hasbro realized that nobody cared about a character that wasn't even in the film, they had to triple production to make people care. Thus the delay.

The BMF Falcon can't be rerelease D because it would cost "hundreds more" to make today than back when they did. So no rerelease with TFA Falcon. How said it could cost $500 or $600 if rerelease do.

Why such a sharp increase in so little time? I curious as to the economics behind this. This also makes me very sad in that it sounds like all the high quality vehicles Hasbro was producing just a few years ago (BAT AT, TIE Interceptor/Fighters with updated cockpit, proper scale X-wings,) that I loved, are gone forever or would cost triple the price now.

If they bring it back it would be a card style but there's discussion about if they would be 5 POA or highly articulated.

Wow. I can hardly believe they would seriously consider 5 POA on vintage cards. The only way that would work for me is if they were reproductions of the actual vintage line.

I really dislike the direction the SW brand is going in general. There's not enough product being produced that's holding my interest as a collector.

I'm wondering if the repacks could branch out to some more desirable ones.

Would love to the see the Royal Guard in that red and black box.

It's interesting that there was really only one TFA reveal, C3PO. Seems like the main thrust of all TFA figure product is already past it's peak which pretty fast.

Totally agree about the Leia, seems almost inconceivable that after all these years and technical advances that they can still get her face sculpt wrong.
