At this point it seems to me like he has some kind of mental illness. This is not healthy rational behavior.

On Rebelscum, Jayson further clarified the 6 figures contain no main characters, as well as saying 3 of them are aliens...but not how those 3 break down among included or unlocks.

So what Hasbro would do is put one Tonnika in the 3 included figures, and then the second as the third tier, which would de facto be a repaint anyway. Everybody wins?

From your keyboard to Hasbro's ears...

It looks a whole heck of a lot like what I envisioned as the ideal set-up I wanted. Maybe not so much of the business with the front door exterior, but it all looks very modular so I expect I could leave that out in my display.

This may very well be my first HasLab...I can't wait to see the true reveal. The picture shown has so much ceiling and backsides of walls showing, there is no way this is the "main picture" of the campaign. A beauty shot, it ain't.

I still favor the interpretation that Cheers was a reference to John Ratzenberger, so it is obviously an Echo Base playset. (Also ties in to the pucture they used for the X-Wing Troop Builder pipeline.)

(And yes this is not serious either.)

They are pretty bulky and missing some black paint, especially the visible white neck. And they have hexagonal weapon ports on their arms. These all detract from really displaying with other more "realistic" modern figures.

That said, I bought 2 to pose ironically squaring off with some POTF2 Rebel Fleet Troopers. They are much better in that setup than other modern Stormtroopers or POTF2 ones, which have aged very poorly.

So what’s the deal with Chopper from this wave?? He’s sold out everywhere and I haven’t seen any restocks in months. Is that it? Why is this not a character to carry forward in future waves?

If I had to hazard a guess, I would say they can't make any more for now because they are using the mold to make the Mural 2-pack version right now, and/or they figured 2 runs of the figure already would be enough.

All the time! They will even tell me why they need to pay less than the listed price!

Of course, I am basically making bespoke product, so that's different.

I have best offer turned off, but they still send messages trying to get things for less than I have listed them. My pat answer is that I am making these on demand and typically sell through the quantities I list, so it's not something that I am looking to unload.

And then, when I have a slow weekend, I very often send offers of $5-$10 off to people watching the listing.

All of that said, pretty much anytime I buy something at a vintage toy store or a toy show, I will always offer them like $10 less since I am paying in cash. It usually goes pretty well.

I saw one of these out on the shelves at Target here in Denver tonight.

Anybody know if these are going to be available online?

If anyone is still looking for these (my area has yet to receive any...) they are now available online.

I voted out both of these characters in the first round, so for the final I put it down to who I would pick up at the store if I could only take one.

I haven't seen the episodes of Clone Wars with Pong Krell. Baylon was one of the only characters in the Ahsoka series I liked. So I went with Baylon. If I was putting money on the outcome, though, I would probably go the other way.

Last summer during interviews, the Hasbro team was very happy with how the N-1 had sold, and said it was going to have the effect of more fighter-sized vehicles being offered. I think the E-Wing was an obvious result.

I saw the N-1 on shelf at Target, Go! Calendars and Toys, and a local toy store called Sir Troy's Toy Kingdom ( that is an all-out toy store my boys and I absolutely love that is trying and mostly succeeding at filling the hole TRU left.)

The N-1 is still available on Amazon as well, and hovers around regular price. If it dips far enough it might finally push me over the edge to actually buying it, but I am not much of a vehicle collector ( no Haslab purchases yet, the BMF is enough of a space hog for me.)
