CZ-4 is a piece of art. It was well worth the wait.

holy crap does CZ hace articulated ankles as well.  Jeez I wish they'd do 3PO like this but just don't give him the shiny.  I loved the 3PO that came with the escape pod so if the did him like that with the articulation of CZ, WOW!!!  Can't wait to see if they do a 4-LOM or DS droid like this.

How are the curved bar sections supposed to work, do we put one of the straight pieces between them to give room behind the bar?

So if all goes well we have only seen half of the wave. I hope we see some at NYCC but  expect SDCC.

A reporter from Jedi Temple Archives and I were discussing this as we both covered Toy Fair.  The one curved section was shown in the carded sample of Elis Helrot.  According the Hasbro there will also be one packed in in Mii'yoom Onith.  The curved pieces are not intended to attach to one another.  Otherwise there would be no room behind the bar since the curved sections just aren't that big.  Instead, they're corners.  So the bar should go together somewhat like this:

       |    |
       |    |
       |    |
       └ ─ ┘


So if all goes well we have only seen half of the wave. I hope we see some at NYCC but  expect SDCC.

Probably not.  Hasbro will be at NY Comic Con displaying their Marvel goods in conjunction with Marvel Comics.  But they told me not to expect the Hasbro Star Wars team to be on hand.

Now all we need is another Wuher and the IG-88 beverage dispenser for the center.

It's good to know that Hasbro Star Wars won't be at the NYC CC, I don't even think that Lucasfilm will be there in any way.  Now I can pass on going.

It's actually a very good show.  The promoters totally underestimated the turnout last year and they had to turn people away.  The exhibitor list is actually pretty good.

How quaint.  ;D  Awesome drawing, actually.  But considering how many of the regular Cantina bar sections we've gotten (rough guess tells me about 9 sections), we should be able to make the big bar by getting some extras of Elis Helrot and Mii'yoom Onith.

Jayson, that's a hell of a drawing!  Thanks to your pic, I'm going to redesign my Cantina.  I've got the 2 OTC Cantina Scene sets, so that gives me 6 long pieces to do the 'sides', so I'll try for 2 of each of M'iiyoom and Elis to get the 4 'corners'.  I just remembered I still have the 3 individual Saga Cantina packs kicking around home somewhere, so then I'll be set for the 'ends'.   8)

Thanks, I dug out my bar pieces this morning and if you put the regular pieces back to back there is enough room between the bar tops (about 1.5") for Wuher to stand, schlepp out drinkings and be an *******. So, you could get away with having 4 corner pieces and 2 straight piece to build a "mini" bar.






But where's the fun in that?

Nicklab...a little OT...I'd actually like to go to the NYC CC, but if SW won't be represented, I'm not as drawn to it as I might be. I was actually at the Javitz Center last year when they had the first one.  I was taking a teaching certification exam, and our lines got mixed up with the Comic-con lines. It was kind of funny actually.  But yeah, it was packed, I think that they had no idea that there would be such a turnout.

Landothescoundrel and I had talked about going this year, so maybe I will be there.

About the bar and the bar pieces.  I never really liked these that much.  I'm a stickler for accuracy, and the bar in ANH had no stools!!
