That is a damn posable vader.

I'm a little more into him now as well.  I'm curious what of Wave 5 Tunghori has, as I only saw Wedge (and Dak to a lesser wave 5 extent).

I'm going to nab a few more guys from Amazon I think, Vader included.  Free shipping makes it even.

It may be nice, but it has a fatal flaw apparently.

I think the price hike on the SL/Mission Series is a harder pill to swallow than the increase on the TBS figures. Granted, haters of the SL figures weren't going to be swayed with a price drop on this line either, but it sure hurts the enthuiasm I have had for the line.

New stormtrooper helmets will take getting used to but I like the freshness of the design.

Mr. Hodges future access to LFL is about to be severely limited methinks.

Anyone have a handy list of how many times they've done the Snowtrooper Commander/Officer over the years?  I know there's been...

- 2003 Saga 03-19
- 2006 Saga-011
- 2007 30AC ESB Tin (Saga 03-19 with removable helmet)
- 2014 Black Series Wave 5

Am I forgetting any?

There was one in the Target Exclusive Ultimate Battle Pack (second from the right)

Another awesome preview... total OT stylings and feel in this clip.

Strange.  Amazon is listing these as arriving the 2nd week of September.

I think EE expedited their order.

I thought the hands were re-used?  The forearms and vest I didn't notice (Leia's away, with everyone else, wishing I had shelving up :().

That's a good bit of new!

The hands I thought reminded me of Bastillas or another characters.  I could be wrong.

For the curious, btw, Torryn Farr's head?  It swaps with basically every female Rebel Pilot and POSSIBLY the female Impy from Force Unleashed.

So headswaps, galore, if you want.  You could have your own army of basically chicks looking at computer screens.

Got mine today...  I got 2 Torryn Farr figures, two Snowtrooper Officers, Luke, and Yoda.

-Torryn Farr...  A great figure, if not simply a headswap.  Hasbro going the removable earmuff route is really a nice nod from them, and the kind of thing that makes a collector figure special.  :)  I am planning a headswap, hopefully, and may buy more to do other swaps.

I didn't get Dak yet, and I didn't get anyone else...  I don't need Bastilla Shan or anything like that.  I'd like Daks but not for $10.  Anyone selling Daks for less, I'm all ears.  ;D


Toryn Farr has a new head, vest, forearms and hands ;)

PM sent about spare Daks

Hasn't pretty much every one of TRU's "BIG" ($100+) exclusives ended up in their Holiday ads for big savings?   

When I see sets like this priced at $100 at TRU, I assume it's so they can put it in the early holiday shopping ads for "WOW - 30% OFF!" type deals.

Yep, I bet that's what will end up happening. The bastards.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Hero Series X-Wing
« on: August 5, 2014, 11:18 AM »
Saw this last night. The wings don't open. The plastic is the same plastic used for the Star Speeder 3000. Kind of cheap but solid. There isn't a lot of detail on the ship however it could be made to look fantastic with a paint job. The R2 is just a dome like what was included in the ROTS Jedi starfighters. It think the slot could be drilled out to hold a real R2. The is nothing inside the toy and no other play features. I guess we could cut the canopy off and build out some kind of cockpit for a figure. It's big enough to hold a figure in there. The canopy could be recasted clear.  Electronics could be taken from the FX version and stored inside. The wings could be cut  and extra plastic sheets added to the holes.

It's interesting it says Disney on it.

There is an electronic version coming exclusive to Sams' Club

I received 3 of the 9pks today from Entertainment Earth - Sandtrooper Strike (ANH), Imperial Assault (Star Wars Rebels) and Galactic Empire (ROTJ). I foresee myself (like Fighter Pods before them) to be all in on these. They are TOTALLY reminiscent of green army men and there is enough variety in characters to really rope someone with OCD in to the line. The vehicles don't interest me that much (none are included in these sets) because of their scale.

The figures themselves are slightly larger than the Hologram figures that came with the TSC line.
