The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 2021 HasLab Black Series Rancor
« Last post by Nicklab on November 19, 2021, 11:39 AM »
I checked on the number of backers, and it has not climbed very much since the livestream began.  They were around 5,100 the last time I checked.  At one point during the livestream the count was at 5,142.  But it dropped to 5,126.  I wonder if that's people pulling out, or if that's because of credit cards being declined?

Tier 3 - 16,000 backers - Salacious Crumb on a ROTJ card
Tier 4 - 19,000 backers - Luke Skywalker on a POTF card

So they wasted the "all-new sculpted figure" on yet another version of Jedi Luke?  ???

I can't believe that Oola or Malakili are not one of the unlocks.  Malakili would have been so easy to put in here and then double-dip the sculpt with a single box release in 2023 for ROTJ 40th anniversary for those who didn't back the rancor.

I just saw the Tier 3 and Tier 4 unlocks.  And I'm really leaning towards passing.

Tier 3 - 16,000 backers - Salacious Crumb on a ROTJ card
Tier 4 - 19,000 backers - Luke Skywalker on a POTF card

Honestly?  That's underwhelming.  Salacious Crumb was offered once in the SDCC Jabba the Hutt exclusive set.  And that figure is also going to be in the upcoming Disney Parks creature multipack.

And seriously, what's going to be new about this version of Jedi Luke?  Because the Walmart exclusive figure in the black and red packaging was actually pretty good.

It would be nice to see a little passion from the Hasbro Star Wars team....I don't know why I get my hopes up with each livestream.

The last two unlocks are Salacious Crumb (carded) and Jedi Luke (Carded).  They are saying the Luke is a new tooled figure, but this has to be the most tone deaf panel ever.  Why no Rancor Keeper?  Why no Oola?  Hell, I think Giran would've been a good choice.  They better announce they are coming down the road if they want people to back this thing!

According to Taretís website oly 1 in 19 store In the Denver Area will carry this, and the one is nowhere close to me. Have any of you not iced your local store getting the X-Wing when target.com list the store as not carrying the item?

In Minneapolis (Target HQ) I've yet to see a store that has shelf tags for this.  It seems to be popping up online and in backrooms where you can order it for pickup.

I did a ship to store a few weeks ago to get mine.

Agreed, Nick.  Thatís the sentiment I was trying to convey as well.  I just get the feeling that a lot of the Black Series collectors have a more casual relationship with the franchise than a lot of collectors who have been at this for more than a decade. 

And for a lot of the legacy collectors?  Iím still amazed at the level of acrimony that exists regarding the 3.75Ē scale versus the 6Ē scale.  It seems like there are even some diehard TVC fans who want this Haslab to fail.  Itís disappointing to see that in the community.

Target has a promotion on Disney items, and the Blue Leader X-Wing qualifies.  Itís buy two, get one free.  And itís in stock on the Target website right now.
