The Bullpen / Re: Marvel Legends Haslab - Giant Man

Just about a week in, 4609 backers. 

Two weeks in, 4936 backers.  31+ days left. 

Seems to be tracking OK to get backed, but I guess we'll know in a week or so.  Week 3 was when the Ghost Rider car started sliding backwards a little bit and it became clear that project was in trouble.

Three weeks in, 5420 backers.  24+ days left.

Continuous forward motion is a good sign.  Above the 50% mark is a good sign. 

Still not a lock to get made, but looking pretty good for the Hank Pym fans for now...

2023 Christmas droid confirmed.  From Jedi News UK:

My CC got charged last night, hoping a shipping notice follows soon...

Got my shipping notice today.  Looking forward to Taym and Velken finally getting added to the Barge/Skiff set-up.

I think it's most likely a pricing error since this just got released.  And possibly Target mistook this speeder bike for the ROTJ version and placed it on clearance.

I'm not even sure that Amazon and Pulse have even shipped them yet and Target is clearing them out?!?  That has got to be some kind of mix up with the previous speeder bike. 

Target just seems like they have zero patience these days to let things linger on the shelf.  So much collector product on clearance at Target right now.  Must not be any room in the holiday planograms for any of this stuff.  Gotta make room for those BS 6" Holiday Snowman Trooper figures I guess!

Managed to fit this thing into the shelving finally... Just waiting for Jabba now.

Looks great!  I can't wait until I have time this weekend to get started on getting mine set up.

It's so dumb and 100% fan pandering but when THAT guy showed up in the first 5 minutes to help Hera, I was giddy like a little schoolboy.

Really can't wait to see a) how they wrap all this up, b) whether or not we get a season 2, and c) how this will all play into more Mandalorian-Verse shows/stories.

Are any of you thinking about splitting it up that way?

Yeah, that is my plan -

My new plan is to display this the way Hasbro did at SDCC this past year - use the bulk of the playset with the 2024 Jabba/dais for a ROTJ set-up and then pull the included dais/throne out for a separate "Boba murders Bib Fatuna" scene.

You can see in the Hasbro SDCC pic I have linked there that the dais in this Jabba set is the same sculpt as the Throne Room playset dais, but it is a better color-match to the playset.  Really feel like they did that on purpose, but what do I know.

So yeah.  Right there with you on the plan.  I was thinking about using the 2010 Walmart Jabba/dais in the playset until the new one is ready but I've heard the old 2010 version is too big for the playset.  (Again, pretty sure that is on purpose to help guide you to buying this $90 Jabba set. ;))

The dead ithorian in the barge... he's molded to the ground yeah?

I don't recall the exact details, but I believe he's got a peg on him that is secured to the barge somehow.  I know a few people were going to try to get him out so they could scan him for 3-D printing purposes, but not sure if anyone found a way to safely remove him or not.  I guess you could try googling to see if someone found an easy way to get him out of jail/

It sounds like this might be one of those "fan channel" type items that Amazon/Target/etc will not carry.  Pulse or EE will be your best bet...

Are those Archive Series figures going to be available anywhere in the US?

Not unless someone imports them from EU/Canada/Asia.
