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.

Is it same price as the Con, $70.00 tax included.

$64.99 - sold out at about 11am ET

Looks like I have to revise my previous statement. Han DOES include all of the same accessories as the standard 6" releases.

I saw the Showdown 2-pack for the first time in a store the other day.  It looks cool.  But then you look right above that pack and hanging on the pegs are the individual versions of Han and Greedo.  And that just comes across as ridiculous.

What I'd like to know?  Does this 2-pack come with all of Han's accessories that are packed with the 6" basic figure?  Because if it does, I may just trade off my individual Han Solo and buy the 2-pack.  I still haven't bought Greedo, and I'm in no hurry to do so.

Han doesn't include the stormtrooper belt or E-11 blaster so it's even less of a value than buying the singles.

Really?  Thanks for the info, Jay!  With that in mind I think I'll be skipping the 2-pack then.

The next question?  Where to get a Greedo?  Amazon and eBay have low enough prices.  Although with the packaging change coming soon, there's no doubt going to be a Target clearance coming as well.  How low does anyone think the Black Series 6" figures might go there?

Despite the revised packaging, the Target DPCI isn't changing. I can get you a Greedo cheaper than Amazon. PM me for details.

That depends on if the DCPI is going to change for the 6" figures...

It's not.

Do you guys think there's a chance they'd launch on the weekend? 

Sitting in front of my computer refreshing that website every 30 minutes isn't anywhere near as easy when I'm not at the studio.

2010 was the last time something from Hasbro went up on a Sat. (Visionaires Comic Pack)

Since 2004, SDCC exclusives have always been for sale in July. Thanks Obama.  :-\

18 figure case assortment canceled "for something else"?

I wonder how Hasbro's social media team defines the word 'soon.'

Last year it was 3:30 ET

42
$39.99 although Ive seen reports as high as $48.99

43
If you know anyone in Germany it will be available there too at Jedi-Con

These look good. It will be interesting to see better shots of Vader because I don't know what is going on with the cape.  ???
