The Force Awakens 6" Figure Rumors (SPOILERS)
« on: December 22, 2014, 09:02 AM »
File this under TFA 6" figures:  http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/Star_Wars_The_Force_Awakens_Six_Inch_Action_Figures_Leaked_Photo_161642.asp

This appears to be an image of 6" figure prototypes for THE FORCE AWAKENS line.  There are no names associated with the characters, but from left to right it appears to be:

-Kylo Ren ???
-Finn
-Rey
-BB-8
-Chewbacca

I think the figure on the far left is Captain Phasma (maybe).

I saw the Captain Phasma report.  From all of the rumors that I've read, I think that Captain Phasma is actually the Chrome Stormtrooper Commander, rumored to be played by actress Gwendoline Christie

No way I'd pay $20 or more for BB8.  Just a little under 3", maybe 2.75"? That's very small.  To think that 4" version would be just over 2.5", if my math is correct.  Of course, that's probably the size of Yoda (never measured him and don't own the 6" yet).

Since they are showing 5 figures and usually one wave of 6" has four figures, do you think BB8 will be a pack in?  I'd be pleasantly surprised if that were the case.

It looks to me like BB-8 is most likely a pack-in with Rey.

It occurred to me that Chewie may be there for scale as the point of this pic seems to be aimed at size. That being said I believe some of Chewie is new and he is coming again.

The portrait on Chewbacca looks different from the 6" figure that's currently on the market.  Definitely more of a neutral expression.

They look pretty good but I am going to refrain from purchasing them. I am moving all of the my focus to Hot Toys.

Look good to me...  paint apps being non-existent I'm not really sure what to critique besides the sculpts, which I think look nice.  Articulation looks about what you should get.

Kinda makes my hairs on my neck stand up a lil because it's signs 6" will continue to the new movies, and I question if they'll bother with 4".  I'll be disappointed.  All new movies to dip into for collector level 4" figures would bum me out if they only went 5 POA and 6".  :-\  That's a fear always in my mind though, and if it happens it happens.  I move on and enjoy other stuff.

I share some of that concern about the future of the 3.75" figure system. Especially since there are indications that Hasbro will NOT be offering figures in that scale for the upcoming Avengers film. News just came out that leads you to believe that Hasbro is offering 6" and 2.5" figures for that license. Granted, Star Wars has a very long history in the 3.75" figure scale. It would be a major departure if Hasbro abandoned that product line.

I think it's cool to see these just as proof that there will be figures cycled in dynamically to the line outside of the previous 6 films. I thought they might wait longer to roll these out but I guess Hasbro wants to capitalize across multiple lines, which makes sense.

They appear to be well sculpted but none of them seem particularly interesting. Even the Sith guy looks less than imposing.

I just hope this kind of sudden character infusion doesn't hold us back from getting 6" stuff like Bib Fortuna, Dengar, Zuckuss, etc sooner rather than (years) later. At this rate it's going to take a long time to get through just the key OT characters.

If 7+ years of hot active Prequel merchandise hell taught us anything, yes expect delays in your favourite background characters favour the new flavour of the hour they'll be hustling.
