The Vintage Collection / Re: 2025 HasLab Mos Eisley Cantina
« on: July 6, 2024, 11:42 PM »
Reminiscent of the Giant Man campaign where a bunch of late funders almost got to the last tier…I still think we have a chance to get all three tiers…we’ll see!

Looks like the maps point to an alcove in the Deluxe section of the playset

Any idea on where the Cantina Band is supposed to be?  I’m imagining it’s in a space opposite the door behind the bar.  It would have been nice to get a small stage or riser for them

I’m all in!  Looks like everything I wanted and more especially if there are LED lights

New album…time for a bump

Dark Matter is a return to Avocado/Backspacer era tunes…I dig it!

Flagg sized Tantive IV  ;D
paging Michael Fright

The Cantina is about the last big thing I’ll buy…except maybe the Yavin tactical display table or the once planned Echo Base playset

There's so much ugliness going on for these polls (and the Last Figure Standing as well) between the OT and New Media crowds. Honestly I think the whole thing is kind of trash, and I suspect there's some questionable voting at this point. Ordinarily I wouldn't feel that way (and I'm just as happy with new media stuff as I am with OT), but the comment sections are a dumpster fire and it really seems like a "versus" thing rather than a genuine fan poll. It's too bad because I really feel like the SWTVC group puts a ton of effort and dedication into this.
Rob nailed it a few days ago and it still resonates why I get pissed every year at this stupid thing…I would never ever put resculpts on my list nor would I put obvious choices like Baylen and Shin who I was surprised weren’t announced today!  But reading all of the comments it just feels like the Fan’s Choice Polls back in the day where weird ass voting happened last minute and results never felt fair to the online pulse of the fan boards of the day.  So dumb and not sure why I care so much.

Yeah and high level “seeds” who showed up on those lists like the Tonnikas don’t even make Round 2?  This thing is just as flawed

Tonnika Sisters and Sim Aloo losing in round 1 says all I need to know about this stupid bracket.  Obviously the demographic of voters is PT/CW era fans as they usually dominate this thing.  Add in super obvious choices like Ahsoka baddies/characters…so dumb

Many Christmases ago, I went to buy a doll for my son. I reached for the last one they had, but so did another man. As I rained blows upon him, I realized there had to be another way.

Happy Festivus, to the rest of us!!!

You’ll have to read through quite a bit of corporate speak but the 10k does speak of strong Star Wars and Marvel sales YoY 22 from 21…the 23 10k
Isn’t out yet but it should be telling of where the problems are…Jeff’s right I suspect…you can take that large of a write down and not have to cover it in other parts of the business.

My biggest gripe of the March Madness poll is that the demographics and voting skews PT/Clone Wars

While many OT characters make the list they rarely make it past the Round of 32
