Well I mean I think it can happen and it will happen but at the same time I donít tho k that box had **** to do with confirming or helping to confirm Hasbro really thinks this is a done deal...  cuz of a box lol.  But hey, whatever helps them keep on believing in themselves I guess.🤷‍♂️

Theyíve been complaining incessantly about price on TVC since it was announced so yeah I expect actually a lot of implosion on this price and a refusal to buy.

Theyíre definitely a good option Matt, and thank you for the kind words on the review I appreciate that.  Tough to make time to do them and my photography is obviously not as good as others, but I thought people might like these sets.  There are similar things available overseas too, but Iíd say nothing this polished.

Only GTP is as ďcompleteĒ aesthetically but their design lacks the interlocking connecting this set does have.  Again I think theyíre apples and oranges as products go though and both accomplish the display goal in different but effective ways.

Nova posted a teaser image that implied, to me anyway, a more imperial looking design is on the way.  Thatís cool.

Well, after their "EXCLUSIVE" images of Mark Boudreaux holding a box, it MUST be true!!!

If youíd told me Kmart/Sears would outlast TRU ten years ago Iíd have said youíre insane.  Yet, here we are.

Lucas always looks like things are just interrupting his day haha.

I followed a lot of this on social media and it was pretty funny.  Hammillís reaction to them spelling his name right made me laugh.  Fords hug for him was funny too.

My friends I think are gonna do the stay in the park experience thing with costumes and a storyline.  I heard the price and Iím pretty sure I wonít be doing it but I still wanna get to the park to see the attraction at least.

The bigger funny was the Skiff Guard resculpt that was right there in plain view all weekend and nobody noticed him.  Poor green weirdo.

Yeah I guess maybe I rationalize my toys differently.  I donít have a lot but I didnít **** my pants and throw a tantrum over he price either.  Iíve looked around at some comments elsewhere though and there are clearly either people whose wives arenít letting them buy it and theyíre taking that out on Hasbro, or they are in a financial place where this isnít a good idea and theyíre again taking this out on Hasbro.

There are many people simply saying ďwow thatís cool but too rich for my bloodĒ and I respect that.  But I see a lot of people saying Hasbro just ďis in it for the moneyĒ (no ****? ::)), and are screwing collectors, and this should be done without funding through Haslab...  these are the problem people in this hobby to me.  The constan complainers about quality but the same ones who bitch about the price of better toys.  No winning there for Hasbro.

I was talking with a buddy of mine and while $500 isnít cheap, I agree with him that itís also not that expensive either.  I mean itís expensive for a toy...  but not for a lot of other things really.  Iím kinda shocked how many are NOT backing it due to cost.  Of course everyoneís financial situation is different too.  But I mean if youíre see in this hobby to begin with I figure $500 isnít that bad but who knows.  I just see a lot of people saying how they want it but how Hasbro is somehow just screwing them over on the price.

Now donít get me wrong if you canít afford it you canít afford it but Hasbro isnít screwing anyone here.  I mean thatís like saying the car you want is out of your budget so Audi is just a bunch of pricks.  We couldnít afford a new Wrangler this past year but I didnít suddenly get mad at Jeep...  we got a Renegade instead till finances clear up. 🤷‍♂️

Like Jeff said on space issues...  this is a lot cooler than the Turbo Tank, MTT, Shuttle, Jedi fighters out the yingyang...  I can make space if itís cool enough.  I retire stuff all the time in this hobby.  Nature of the beast since I canít add on to the house for it all.

This is definitely easier to keep track of the Qs this way.

I never minded Leia or Lando myself...  I'd like Lando's cape to be removable, and Leia I am more into than Lando getting a resculpt for sure.

I can back almost any resculpt though if I knew Hasbro was going to knock it out of the park.  ANH Han can use a redo, Hoth Han can use a brown coat super duper deluxe figure with multiple heads and such...  Hoth Luke is **** too, IMO.  XWing Luke has never been quite right.  I'm sure many could argue Dagobah Luke needs an update (I know they can do those arms better).  Yoda. 

Lots of SA stuff I'd rebuy if it's a lot better.  I'd prefer it stick to mains though if they update something (anything) remotely close to SA.

I hate seeing stuff like the DSGunner updated with just better elbows or whatever.  To me that figure's fine as it is.  Re-release it with a better chest armor and maybe a less Cloney head or just the helmet stuck on it...  whatever but I just don't like seeing stuff like that get a slot where a Cantina character or something undone could get it.
