Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Rebel U-Wing Fighter
« Last post by Nicklab on August 26, 2016, 10:22 AM »
Damned Nerf features.  Especially when they eat up real estate in a vehicle that could have been devoted to space for figures.

It's a little funny though.  I've been doing some work on my collection room, clearing some space so that I can put up some shelving, with the goal of displaying a lot of my collection.  And in the process I came across my CLONE WARS Y-wing.  I hadn't really done anything with that Y-wing in a while.  But in the process of moving it a few of the missiles and bombs fired off.  And I was surprised by how many action features are on that ship!  But then again, that Y-wing did have space for 2 pilots plus a droid socket.  I really would have liked to see something similar in this new U-wing.

Seems at least to me the NERF thing is removable.

Guy in the rebelscum forums posted some back of the box shots - looks like the NERF cannon on this one is non-removable and non-retractable...   :-\

Also looks like a single seat cockpit, despite how long the 'tube' is.

A Rebelscum forum member posted some shots of the back of the box.

Looks like it confirms non-removable (but retractible) NERF cannon, single-seat cockpit, and no room for troops on bottom (thanks to the NERF).

Also, between that horrible 2-pack Poe and the paint job on Cassian here, it's sure looking like Hasbro is using a new factory for Rogue One stuff.  New factories ALWAYS mess up the eyes until they work out the kinks (I'm looking at you, Indiana Jones toyline, which used a first time factory and had horrible eye deco on wave 1/2).

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4

I noticed that BBTS has full sets of the WM figures available for sale.  Does this mean the "exclusive" set is being sold through other outlets or did they just buy these at WM and resell them?

Considering how long it took this wave to get to retail, I would not be surprised if WalMart is farming out some stock to third parties.  Especially since they're going to need the peg/shelf space for the ROGUE ONE line rollout next month.

I just saw Phasma on the pegs for the first time last night. Since the price had dropped to $10.83 I went ahead and bought it. Nice figure.

Shockingly, I found a Han Solo and Leia on the pegs at Walmart this morning!  I purchased the Han and a second Rey (to diplay with the hood on) and left the Leia.  I can see that one sitting on the pegs a bit.

Paul was kind enough to pass along a press release for the Kickstarter campaign date and all the various levels people can get by supporting it!

This is really awesome Paul, and I plan to support.  I've wanted a wild west too, so I'm all for this.

Here's the link to our story on the front page:

I dig the "Vigilante" 3D render Paul...  :P  Is that Arm & Hammer there? 



Oh and this render too...  Really pro work being done Paul.  Hat (or derby, in this case) off to him/her.  Bat Masterson-ish eh? :)

Could be either - BBTS has been known to buy at retail and then scalp resell, but they have also had some luck ordering stuff through asian wholesalers (like when they offered the Japan sticker Black Series 6" SDCC excluisves in the past).  Could be they got a hold of some overseas cases and are breaking into sets and selling.

Agreed, I really think that pretty much anyone who displays their figures loose will find a good use for these.  The little clips come with the order and really work out way better than I would have imagined.  Definitely can't wait for 3.75" scale ones.  GTP toys indicated that they think the 3.75" ones will be even better...
