Did she mention the price?  ???

I received in the mail from Pulse today the Last Command 4-pack or whatever they are calling it with Mara and Luuuuuke. Also got a shipping soon notice for the RFT/Stormtrooper 2-pack. Lots of stuff hitting now…

Now that’s what I’m talking about!! Chef’s kiss 😚

I’m so tempted to get these but still have hope Hasbro might one day do them Retro style. They look great though.

Just got Kanan from Amazon and came straight here to say how impressed I am with this figure. It’s just a terrific all around realization of the character and very faithfully executed, from sculpt to paint apps, to accessories. A+  :)

Ezra is on the way, looking forward to his arrival!

On the other hand though, I'm not sure if it would matter in the long run - is anyone going to put anything from The Acolyte into their Top 25 list? #hmm  ???

Narrator’s Voice: “They would not.” 😄

Palpatine: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise?

Anakin: What, that Homeless Guy that lived in a cave?


I’ve had 12 different Black Series sets/figures bookmarked on Amazon for the past six months waiting for them to go on sale like every other exclusive they have offered ever. I check each of them every day and there is never any change. I figured Prime Days would at least feature a couple of sales on some of these items but no, not a single one discounted.

Between pricing, availability, the Acolyte and those Holocomm figures, Hasbro seems determined to break my collect-them-all mentality.  ::)

Ollie’s appears to be getting these in now…tempting.

I don’t think there is enough evidence to form an informed opinion yet either way. The Ghost Rider HasLab failed because it had a more limited appeal to begin with and a real value perception problem. I read all the Ghost Rider comics growing up and never even knew he had a car. Just didn’t resonate with older dudes like me with money to spend.

I absolutely think an AT-ST could succeed but a lot would depend on the tiers, and given their track record I’m not sure we can count on them to deliver there. They’d be too tempted to trawl out a slightly tweaked Snowtrooper, AT-AT Driver, or one of the Imperial Officers.

Now that I think about it though, not sure what “new” Hoth figures would really excite me at this point either. 2-1B for sure, and I guess the mushroom shaped Medical droid. (FX-7?) Would they do those though?  ???

The review of last night’s episode over at JTA is just brutal.  :D

Well, the Marauder did get completely blown up, so it fits the profile.  ;D

Wow, that is weird AF.  :D

Cool idea though, would like to see what they could do with the Bride or Creature.

I just hope this means they will eventually do a pair of Retro Tonnikas  ;)

If they wouldn’t fudge it for how close the Rancor got, I can’t see them doing it here just for an add-on. But I think he will probably just squeak by….

They should def make that a droid from Thrawn’s exiled Star Destroyer, would fit the motif perfectly.
