Rogue One / Re: What Would You Like to See for the 40th Anniversary?
« Last post by Rob on January 18, 2017, 06:30 PM »
I'm getting to the point where I'm just wondering where all the product is?  TFA, Rogue One, Rebels... there's a ton going on right now and in the last four months they've basically put out two waves of figures and 4 or so figures at Walmart that are a total pain in the ass to find.

I'd have expected two to three times as many figures in that span given how front and center Star Wars is.  I hope Hasbro has a lot to unveil at Toy Fair, because I'm sort of stunned at the missed opportunities right now.  No TFA Luke still... plenty of main characters left to make from all three current properties, and collectors always want new items from the first 6 films.

I'd just like to see Hasbro actually start producing stuff again.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

I honestly thought the cameos were the worst part of the movie. 3PO and R2 felt shoehorned in just to say they've been in every movie. And Evazan/Ponda reeks of some corporate doofus watching Star Wars for the first time and ordering them in.

The only cameo I did not like were the ones for Walrus Man and Dr Evizan.  Evizan just didn't look right at all.  The flip side is that I loved seeing the Ghost and chopper as well as the General Syndulla page.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors

I think there are enough signs pointing toward a vintage style 6 inch assortment with the original 12 figures in some capacity that really my only hope beyond the Jawa(s) being awesome is that there is some newness in the repeats. Like a Stormtrooper with the sculpt of the RO figure? Sure. Also seems like they're holding that RO Vader now for this assortment.

R2 makes sense as he's been MIA since wave 1, and Luke and Leia would be interesting if they ditched the soft goods for plastic. Chewie I don't know. We've had two and I don't know what would make him different outside of a new head sculpt.

If people need R2 (or any figure) then they should just straight up reissue him in a future case assortment.  Looks like he is going for some crazy money on eBay, so I would assume the demand is there for a reissue.

There is also a rumor of a 6 inch Early Bird Set to commemorate the 40th Anniversary.

This seems a little odd.  We've essentially got all of these figures already (R2, Luke, Leia, Chewie). 

I personally am not interested in slight variations or a packaging variant for these figures.

I would rather see them do something different if they wanted to do a 40th Anniversary set.  Lots of great characters left to do from ANH in the 6" line.  No need to rehash.

100% AGREE!

Please spare us some half assed exclusive like that TRU "Cantina Showdown" garbage. We already had those characters too. There's like 800 different great options for new characters in this scale, we don't need repacks, retools, tweaks or similar nonsense. Not at this stage.

And Krennic is just a stupid carryover. That should have been Vader's spot.

6" Early Bird set?

And possible die-cast figures, too?  It's shades of the Titanium series figures all over again.
