I've read two absolutely stellar reviews of Five Armies, who is going this weekend? 
The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Defender Wishlists 2014: The Empire Strikes Back
« Last post by Scott on December 17, 2014, 04:34 AM »

For the last couple of years we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films.  Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Toy Fair, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10[/i] 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  Fan favorite The Empire Strikes Back is currently on deck.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode V.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Defender Wishlists 2013: The Empire Strikes Back 1 out of 10

Kubricks / Re: So is Medicom killing the Kubrick Star Wars line...???

It sucks that the later chases prices have stayed high...still need Imperial Officer, Hoth Soldier and Uncle Owen

No way am I paying $600 for this

I really thought a Clone Wars set was a no-brainer.  Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Rex, Cad Bane, Asajj plus some chases.  Too bad it never happened. :(

First Episode VII shirts I've at TeeFury

For just $11!  Still couldn't bring myself to buy either of them, but I did plunk down money for the At-At Ugly Christmas sweater and a different SW T-Shirt.  Code TF10 gets you 10% off.

At the very least if there turns out to be no Ep7 Kubricks we can all stop holding our collective breaths for news on any new Kubricks and accept the series as dead.

I'm pulling these figures out of the air but at this stage I'm betting on 60/40 there will be Ep7 Kubs. 60% yes, because they would be mad not to get in on that merchandising bonanza and 40% no, because the last couple of years have shown us Medicom aren't interested in putting out new Kubricks.

I have no clue where 4" Star Wars is going.  I feel like they're devoting more to the 6" line, as far as collector-targeted stuff goes.  Maybe it just feels that way, but damn near every wave is chock full of new tooling so I'm reluctant to say they aren't leaning that way.

I don't know that 4" would go away, so much as 4" collector toys would, and 4" would be all the cartoony and 5 POA stuff, which has customizing potential only to me, and I'd never shell out extra for any of it.  If that were to happen I'd be very much dedicated to other things I collect, mostly out of Japan at this point, which would suit me just fine I think.  Acid Rain would also get booku $ from me going forward, haha.  I actually may even "army build" some of the vehicles!  Hell, that thought alone almost makes me wish Hasbro would bail on collector 4" stuff I wanted, hehe.

I don't think they'd can 4" all together though.  I lean against that thought.  I just feel like 4" could be the kid's line, movie/cartoon focused obviously, and 6" will be a mix of old and new, very collector focused, and perhaps it would flourish with more interesting things like larger accessories, smaller vehicles.

I will say, the MASK news that's out there really is surprising.  Yet another direction they're going?  Is this where Joe's budget went?   :-\
