the other chase will be a bloodied plane crash Harrison Ford... the force is strong with that one.

Would someone be kind enough to post the upc or any number from the receipt when they buy one. I am going to see if I can buy one from the disney merchandise call in number. They said as long as it is an assembled product it is purchasable.
Thanks!

Since it's carded and assembled when you buy it, my guess would be "yes" - so hopefully they will still have them in stock when I'm there mid-June - if no one else has posted the UPC, I will when I get back from the trip...

I don't mind the updated design, but seeing the size was a bummer for me.

I think a collector 4" line is a license to print money, if Hasbro had paid attention in distribution class.

Out of the box look at Stormtrooper.  Man, it is getting harder and harder to resist these...  I have a ton of Tamashii Nations' Robot Damashii figures (Gundams), so I know they've got some kick-ass quality.  :-\

I wonder how many people's heads would have exploded in internet rage if Hasbro had decided to make their 6" figs the quality of the Japanese version and thus charged the same price.

I wonder why Hasbro's 12" stuff wasn't as good as Sideshow?

I can't even imagine... 

I agree the Japanese stuff is far superior... but there's a severe lack of diversity that comes with that too.  Hasbro has a ton of 6" figures and all the Japanese guys have Vader, Stormtrooper, and maybe a couple others from the high popularity pool (Fett, Maul, R2, 3PO, etc).

But yeah, Nick - the Sideshow thing is a good comparison.  Hasbro isn't looking to be Tamashii/Medicom/Kaiyodo for 6" or Sideshow for 12".  They are looking for that happy middle ground "toy".


I just can't see the 4" line dying after nearly 40 years.

I think all those early worries of NO 4" line are gone at this point.  We already know there is a 4" line coming for Ep7 thanks to Target's leaked DPCI. Hasbro has said repeatedly that they have no interest in killing Star Wars 4" figures.

Whether they have an interest in killing collector 4" figures though... that seems to be where people disagree.  Lots of folks are convinced Hasbro is trying to kill collector 4" to move everyone to 6" stuff leaving dirt cheap to produce 5POA 4" for kids.

I'm hopeful a collector 4" line continues... but who knows.  With Hasbro refusing to say anything it's opening the door to lots of rumor and speculation.

They are not killing the line. Just the cardback.

I can't see where all the hate is coming from.

It's pretty much coming from it not being 100% like the vintage Kenner toy I imagine.  Doors aren't the same, it's smaller, no wheels, no electronics, etc etc. 

Like the rest of this line, these new ships are nice for what they are - cheap, small, and simple.  But, if you'd need anything beyond that, you'll probably be disappointed.

With the supposed demise of the Legends/Rebels line, do we know what is happening with the MS line and when we will see the Vader/Asohka pack?   Have they previewed anything else in this line beyond the Hera wave?

Mission Series continues in Fall 2015.  Ahskoa and Vader = Fall 2015.  Nothing else shown because of Hasbro's "first rule of Fall 2015 is don't talk about Fall 2015" thing they have going right now...
