The Vintage Collection / 2023 TVC Deluxe TM Krrsantan

There were some updates on the TVC release list over at Yakface.  And listed in the TVC Deluxe mainline releases is a Krrsantan figure!  Nice to see Hasbro coming through with that at last.

Watto's Junk Yard / Online Stores - Preferences, Feedback
« on: September 4, 2022, 09:12 AM »
I thought it would be generally interesting to get people's feedback about the online stores that they prefer.  What are some of the positives and/or negatives associated with some of them, etc.  Are there ones you swear by?  Concerns with another?  Does one have great service except for their shipping policies?  Etc...





My first bit of feedback?

Big Bad Toy Store

I was going through my keychain on my iPhone and noticed that there was a security risk associated with Big Bad Toy Store.  Evidently BBTS has been the subject of a security breach.  I also got a notification this morning of an unauthorized charge on a card that I have not used in a while.  When I checked my spreadsheet of TVC orders I saw that the last time I had used that card was with BBTS on their exclusive Gaming Greats ARC Trooper.  You might want to check your cards as well.

Personally, I am really disappointed that I didn't receive a notification from BBTS about the data breach.

Images have surfaced on social media of the Disney Parks Obi-Wan Kenobi Droid Factory 4-pack.   Here are the droids included in the set:

R3-T2
NED-B
Viper Probe Droid
1-JAC

In light of this news, and the fact that this line is a partnership with Hasbro, I don't think we can expect TVC versions of NED-B or 1-JAC any time soon.

The Vintage Collection / 2022 TVC Troop Builder Shoretrooper 4-Pack

Well done, Hasbro.  I'll give credit where it is due.

We've been really consumed with the ordering process of this first troop builder set, but I think it's worth examining the concept of this particular sub-line. 

The general theme as stated in the livestream is 3 x grunt troopers and a squad leader.  I completely understand and agree with launching this line with Imperial Stormtroopers.  That's just what you do when you launch this kind of sub-line.  But where to go from here?  The obvious ones to me?


GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC - PHASE I
3 x Clone Troopers (aka "shinies")
1 x Clone Trooper NCO or Officer
NOTES:
-I would personally opt for either the Sergeant or Lieutenant who have been released in the VC-045 Clone body before on a basic figure card.  Leave the option open for the other Clone Trooper officers to be released on their own TVC cards at some point
-Phase 1 clone armor seems like the easier route than Phase 2 for a line launch since it's far more uniform in deco


IMPERIAL TROOPERS - THE BAD BATCH
3 x TK Troopers
1 x Imperial Commando (formerly Republic Commandos)
NOTES:
-The recent focus on The Bad Batch will no doubt come into play here.  But I would expect to see a basic figure release of the TK Trooper on a basic figure card before this kind of 4-pack release
-The Commando is wishful thinking on my par, but it is a sculpt that's in their library - the Commando sculpts from the SOTDS line come to mind


REBEL FLEET TROOPERS - ROGUE ONE
4 x Rebel Fleet Troopers (VC 183) with individual headsculpts
NOTES:
-This could be one of the most significant tests of this concept.  Rebel Troopers do have uniforms, but they aren't always, well, uniform.  In the case of the Fleet troopers you've got different facial likeness, visor up or down or even none at all, and possibly different weapons.


FIRST ORDER STORMTROOPERS
3 x First Order Stormtroopers
1 x First Order Stormtrooper Squad Leader - orange pauldron
NOTES:
-This one pretty much writes itself since it's an evolution from the Imperial Stormtrooper model


GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC - Phase 2 armor
Where do you even start here?  Which unit?  What kind of squad leader or officer?

Over the weekend I started getting security advisory messages about the JD forums.  Im not sure if its an issue with the host server or another ongoing cyber attack thats happening, but I wanted to at least report the issues that Im encountering.
