The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Future of Star Wars Collecting?
« Last post by Jeff on April 23, 2015, 04:05 PM »
Well, we are all over the map today.

Hasbro: "we have no plans to stop Black Series"

So... $10,000 question - when they say "Black Series", do they mean 6", 3.75", or both?  The answer sounds like they mean both... but then again, they have been avoiding 3.75" answers like the plague lately and only showed Fall 2015 packaging for the 6" line.  Hmmm...


Meanwhile, JTA hears the 3.75" collector line may be a single store (TRU?) exclusive (Again, this is just a RUMOR). 

There was a rumor a while back that Hasbro was considering a "direct-to-consumer" model for the collector stuff, like they did with GI Joe.  Only that rumor has the collectors stuff at HasbroToyShop. 


I really wish Hasbro would have had the balls to just come out at Celebration and tell us one way or the other for sure - is the 3.75" collector line DEAD or ALIVE?  Every non-answer they offer up just feeds the speculation that the only reason they are not talking about 3.75" is that there is nothing good to tell us...

Instead....  we wait and wade in the rumor pools.   :-\

Check your Target stores as it appears that this assort. is on clearance at many locations - down to as little at $2.98 each.

I can confirm this...I bought an X-Wing Pilot Luke last night for $2.98. I thought it must be a random fluke but maybe not.

I have only seen this at one store, and that was the only figure they had, but it's definitely got me interested in checking around now.

Well, there were reports that Hasbro is "sold out" of the Legends cases.

If Target has no more Legends cases in their DC and they can't get any more from Hasbro, then a clearance to clear the pegs to make more room for the summer Marvel movie lines isn't a surprise I guess...


Oh, and a Target clearance of the Rebels Saga Legends DPCI is probably another sign that the rumored $8 "SW E7 3.75 Single Fig" DPCI (087-06-3658) is most likely the "kid" line (or the only 3.75" line  :-X).

Nice! Thanks for sharing Paul!

Great to see that all nine domes were there for you as well as all the parts.

Would it be too much trouble to ask for you to put together the following combinations and take pictures of them:

White w/Yellow R2 Dome on new Gray body
Blue w/Yellow R2 Dome on the White w/Yellow & Gray R2 Body/Legs
White w/Red & Black R6 Dome on the Red w/Black R2 Body, black middle leg and white/black left/right legs
White w/Gold R7 Dome on the white w/black R7 Body you currently have the new R6 dome on
White w/Blue R8 Dome with the same body you have it on now but with the White w/Blue legs and White middle leg
Silver w/Black R9 Dome on Goldie's body

Thanks!

(Edited post to make it clear that I was't asking Paul to pick up droids for me, just that I wanted to see how those combinations looked)

Yeah, that pretty much friggin' sucked.   :'(

Worst game I've ever seen at Xcel.  Colossal turd.  Took all the kick-assery of Game 3 and flushed it.  Made me so sad to see Xcel 75% empty in the 3rd period. (though it was 11pm at night I guess they all had to get home to bed?)

Blech.  Time to reboot and get ready for Games 5 and 6.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

I imagine he played an integral part in Jabba's Palace or Mos Eisley.......

I like to think of him as TK421 2.0.  Born on the planet Lothal shortly after the dawn of the Empire, TK was the son of an Imperial trooper, TK421, Sr. and Lothal fruit peddler.  TK, Jr. was raised mostly by his mother as his father was off on secret missions to safeguard the Empire against insurgents.  One of TK's fondest memories as a child was of his father giving him a stuffed Wookiee that he got while stationed Kashyyyk.

As he grew older, TK saw less of his father as he was working for a hero of the Empire, Tarkin.  He witnessed several attacks against Imperial authorities by terrorist cell groups that left troops dead, which angered him to the point of action.  Any one of those peacekeepers could have been his father.  This fear led TK to join the Imperial Youth movement and later became a future Stormtrooper.  TK was present on a field expedition to watch the destruction of a communications array, which had been hacked by a terrorist cell that was rumored to be led by a Jedi.  TK was awed to be in the presence of the man his father respected, Grand Moff Tarkin.  Sadly, in a few years TK lost both of the men he looked up to when the insurgents destroyed the Death Star. 

When the Rebels dethroned Palpatine, TK was stationed out in the Rim.  Fearing for his life, he laid low for years until he received a signal that the remnants of the Old Empire were regrouping as the New Order to bring back peace to the galaxy.  TK was a diligent and loyal soldier, who was tabbed by his superiors to be brought into the fold of the Elite Guard.  Unfortunately, as the New Order was making progress in their quest for peace, a group of terrorist attacked a New Order hangar and TK was caught in the blast.  The details of the attack are sketchy at this point.  The New Order sends their sincerest condolences to TK's family and comrades and vow to make those Rebel scum pay for their treachery.

This is fun.  We should just have a thread for people writing about this guy's backstory.

Here is a nice shot of all of them built.

The Legacy Collection / Re: Clegg Holdfast still on the pegs

Clegg Holdfast is still at RiteAid for $13.95. There are prices like that on ebay for him. If we wait long enough, that price will look like a bargain.
