I appreciate the do over on the pilot, but so far the TLJ line seems to be in large measure the TFA figures, again.

Don't worry, once the Vintage Collection hits in 2018 we'll be seeing lots of... um, TFA and Rogue One figures again.  :-\  :P

There have been some really nice figures so far (Luke, Leia, ObiWan) but yeah the rehashing is getting a bit boring.  Say what you want about George, but at least he knew how to give his characters lots of different looks as the OT progressed.  TLJ's "Finn with new shirt" and "Maz with new backpack" and "Kylo with scar" are not really jumping out.

Yeah this is where I'm at. The SW films - and credit where credit is due, TFA and RO gave us a lot of new - have always been about new stuff. This one, at least in what we've been presented so far, is not. I don't know if that's just this film, or what. I don't mind some of the do-overs like Asty and Hux, but man. Give us some new stuff.

I love the pilot from a customizing pov, but only in so much as it's the pilot we should've gotten with Atsy.   :-\

Now I hope we get a decent Resistance Soldier.  Separate skirt piece, and removable helmet.  Nothing elaborate being asked for there just a good base to add articulation to haha.

I happened to stop in to a nearby Barnes & Noble after work the other day.  Something about that place reminded me of the "Die, dinosaur, die!" thread for some reason...

Be that as it may, they're carrying the TLJ basic figure line.  And they're only charging $7.95 per figure.  IIRC, that might even be lower than WalMart's price for that figure assortment.

Per Yakface, Orange Wave 2 is in-stock at Hasbro Toy Shop this morning...  looks like Leia is already gone though.

Technically no since she has Force Link tech.

Right... I guess I have to decide if that's enough to re-buy.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Jyn also comes with the Death Star plans, so that's new...

Hey Willis  ;D

Yeah for the repacked Jyn she now comes with the data tape she downloads the DS plans into on Scariff. Not worth the price to me, but some might think it so.

I think you might have your wires crossed on that one...  I haven't heard anything about that and haven't seen any pictures indicating that.  Where did you hear about the data tape?

Yeah I'd not heard that either...  and I'd be one who would buy it for said Datatape because I'm a weak weak man.  :-[
