The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting?
« Last post by Dave on July 24, 2014, 01:57 PM »
Normally I'm pretty open to new Star Wars lines, but I'm completely uninterested in nearly all of these, so I'm at a loss as to who these are targeted towards and if they'll be successful.

I mostly love the Hasbro 6" stuff, and I understand the 5POA from Hasbro and to some degree the Disney stuff, even though I'm mostly uninterested in the last two.

Not interested in the Hot Toys stuff.

The Jakks Pacific stuff completely confuses me.  It seems super lame.

Japan is Japan.  They've got their own licenses and can do some weird stuff sometimes.

Maybe they feel 3 3/4" is completely tapped out (without new cartoons/movies) and were just trying new things.  I would be surprised if even half of these lines still existed in 18 months.

Was discussing the explosion of large scale Star Wars figures with someone this morning.  It's kind of incredible how fast it's spreading.

Since Hasbro kicked off the 6" line last year, we've had...
- a new 6" line from Hasbro
- a few 6" MAFEX from Medicom (Japan)
- a few 6" SHFiguarts from Bandai (Japan)
- a new 12" 5POA line from Hasbro
- a new 12" announcement from Hot Toys (1:6 scale)
- a new 13"-15" line from Disney Stores
- a new 18" announcement from Hot Toys (1:4 scale)
- a new 21" line from Jakks Pacific
- a new 31" line from Jakks Pacific

And there could be more announcements out there at SDCC...  crazy.

What do you all think is the cause?
- Is it everyone trying to cash in on the success of GG's Jumbo Kenner figures? 
- Is it Disney who opened the license floodgates to prep for Ep7?
- Is it yet another sign that 4" is dead and the future lies with bigger figures?

Other Collectibles / Jakks Pacific 20" Star Wars Figure Line

So, I guess Jakks will be making 20" Star Wars figures for all the fans who wished there was something larger than Hasbro's 5POA 12" figures, but smaller than Jakks' 31" figures.

More info coming up from Comic-Con, but it looks like there will be a number of store exclusives for folks to chase...

Oddly enough I missed the picture of Otachi, will have to hunt that down tonight. That was definitely the next needed Kaiju though. And then Slattern.

Soooo awesome. Even Axehead, a straight repaint, looks pretty sweet!

Here's that otachi pic:

SDCC Skybound exclusive Ezekiel figure(s) should be going up for sale at some point soon at their website if anyone is interested...I guess they will announce via Twitter when sales are open. This is one of the few SDCC exclusives I didn't preorder this year, so I will be watching this closely. Good luck to all!

Ezekiel is up man!

They are literally going to sell tens of these.

ROFL, well said.

These same figures were actually on sale this week for $13.50 each on the website, so you could have had them both for $27, but no swanky cardboard chairs.  ;)
