2024 TVC Blurrg & The Mandalorian
« on: February 7, 2024, 10:47 AM »
Disclaimer - nothing official until Hasbro confirms it, etc, but we all know Jayson's track record by now.  From the Yak Master List.

“Zander” – Mandalorian & Blurrg

If true, it's about damn time.  I wonder what they'd charge for this if Speeder Bikes are $50 these days?

Hey!  They're $45, Jeff.  A world of difference, LOL!

I hope it's true.  We'll see.  Jayson's track record is stellar, and I don't think he would commit to that unless he had some solid information.

This is the way.

Was thinking the same thing, and was bummed that they're looking at including a Mando with them... I'd rather it be a little less expensive and not have him, but I get it.

Oh don't worry... it will get repacked at least one more time with Kuill.

It's about time we get this though. I'm excited to see this one revealed. I'll be down for up to three of these well (depending on the initial price).

If they are going with Mando, I'm hoping it's S1/E1 Mando with his pre-beskar armor.  It's been a long time since we got that look for him and it might be nice to get that version again since I have so many Beskar Mando figures now.  Give him a nice soft goods upgrade over that original VC166 Mando and bring back the pulse rifle for disintegrating Jawas.

Yeah, that feels like a safe bet these days.  I am dumb so I'll likely buy a second Mando/Blurrg just in case they don't though.

I think those of us who want three total will be OK doing that. I think it is safe to say that they aren't planning on releasing the third Blurgg w/ Cara Dune any time soon... :-X

But you know how it'll go with some collectors: "For $39.99 they could have included a figure!"

Stoked about these (if true). Hope the tail has some articulation so each one I get can be posed a little differently and they won't look like they're in a  militairy parade.

I personally feel like the speeder bikes should have probably been priced around $34.99.  $44.99 was too much, and I think the market responded.  I could see the potential for Hasbro to try lowering the retail price to $39.99 in an effort to move this assortment.

So if this is true?  I'm wondering if Hasbro would go with Din Djarin's durasteel armor as seen on Arvala 7 at the beginning of the series, or his beskar armor as seen in Chapter 7?  I think the durasteel armor look could benefit from a lot of the innovations that have been introduced for TVC figures since VC166 came out in 2020.  Plus, updating that version of Din Djarin could yield a version that might be included with a Mudhorn!  I still think that's a creature worth bringing to a creature assortment since it's the inspiration for his sigil on his armor.

I wonder if these is Steve Evans getting involved and slapping the organization around to do some of the most obvious things they haven't done in the past four years.

I was glad to hear Emily specify that this Blurrg and Mando would be from the first episode of the series.  A more up to date version of him in the durasteel armor would be a nice addition to the line!
