The Vintage Collection / Re: 2025 HasLab Mos Eisley Cantina

That is roughly what I remember with The Razor Crest and The Ghost both backing within 48 hours.  This one flattened out much quicker than those.

Important to note too that RC was only 6k to fund initially and that was part of helping it fund so quick.  The Ghost funded during day 4.

This is such a unique item, it's hard to track it to the others.  It's not based on recent, new media.  It's a playset and not a ship.  It's the first time Hasbro has asked this much for a playset.  I think the fact it's old and costs a lot are hurting it a bit with casual collectors or speculators who still have money tied up in extra Ghosts that they ordered.

I know I talked about this back in the Ghost thread, but the average HasLabs runs about 6 weeks - they generate about 1/3 of backers in the first week, 1/3 in the middle 4 weeks, and 1/3 in the last week.  This HasLab being only 32 days instead of 45 is going to hurt it probably. 

If we look at things that way, based on where we are today, the math for an average HasLab says this is trending towards 12k-14k to finish.  Again, with a smaller middle section, we might be in trouble hitting that 17k tier for Ariel.  This HasLab is just different enough it's hard to predict how it will go.

I'd fully expect him in a $24.99 deluxe box at some point.  Can't see them letting him go for $16.99.

Yeah, if they do Kelnacca, we're definitely going to have to pay the DLX box price for him.

I feel like if it were just one of the other Jedi, there's no reason they wouldn't have announced it on the initial livestream.

Same.  They saved the Osha reveal until the show aired.  If that last figure is from Acolyte, the Sith/Dark Master is a good guess.  Or maybe the Mother from this week's episode?

Obviously the fire did not kill the coven, and we still need to see what caused Osha to walk away from the Jedi.

SPOILERS for anyone who has not seen it yet...

I kind of keyed in on Jedi Master Tommen Baratheon.  He drank that poison pretty willingly in Ep2, so he had to feel bad about something.  In that temple, his face was all scarred and his eye was messed up.  In the flashback episode, at the start, we see Jedi Padawan Tommen get possessed by the witches and his face is fine.  Taking blood from Osha, face still fine.  Later in the episode, when Osha is waking up on the Jedi ship, you can see Jedi Tommen in the background next to Jedi Master Trinity and his face seems to be wounded in the same pattern as the scars we'd see in Ep2.

My guess is that the witches got into some kind of disagreement about Mother Mama wanting to let Osha go with the Jedi and Mother Lady-Maul wanting Osha to stay with the witches.  There was some kind of throw-down, Mother Lady-Maul kills Mother Mama.  Jedi showed up (maybe to collect the girls or sensing the danger?).  Mother Lady-Maul attacks the Jedi in an attempt to stop Osha from leaving, Padawan Tommen gets his pretty face messed up, some portion of the Jedi take out the witches, they blame it on the fire.

I'll agree with you guys that this show's pacing and excitement level is not setting the world on fire, but I'm willing to see this ride to the end and judge then.

They will release the Tonnika Sisters and Wuher separately...I wouldn't be surprised if they are pipelined on 9 July.

That would be an epically ballsy move to say "these are exclusive to this set" and then immediately flip on that 1 day after the campaign ends.

Was away from the internet today so I missed posting this earlier -

Dropping this in here from Jayson/YakFace twitter:

Another one came to mind that I feel a little silly not mentioning earlier - Han Solo from the Sarlacc pit battle!

The version that came with the Carbonite block reads much more as a TESB version.  And that dates back to 2014, IIRC.

Hoo boy, yeah.  Recent attempts at Han pre- and post- freezing have been a bit lacking for sure -

So we don't have Rob to thank for commissioning customs of the Tonnikas for several hundred dollars????

No, the custom ones he bought were Kenner style.  If Hasbro announces Retro Collection Tonnikas then we'll give Rob credit.  :D

Just $13 on Amazon right now...

Of course it happens just months after I finally finished my 15 year long customs of themů

We all thank you for your sacrifice.  Can you please finish work on a custom Tzizvvt and Yerka Mig so Hasbro makes those too?  :D

Where will the focus shift for OT fans who want main characters?

My three picks for the OT mains next year will be -

ESB Bespin Luke - Nick already covered this one...

ESB Hoth Han - we're a long way past 2007 when they did the last version and drove it into the ground with all the blue/brown and hood up/down variants.  Give him a TVC re-do with alternate hood up and hood down heads.  They can do a variant blue version too for the double dipping they love so much.

ROTJ Ewok Village Leia - those 2x POTF2 options we have are so very very dated and in need of a TVC re-do.  Maybe they will save this for an eventual Ewok Village HasLab though.  :D

I have already started looking into LED options for lighting and found some really small bluetooth speakers that you could disguise as a small round table.  My plan is to do a playlist of the cantina sounds on a loop that I can play from my phone to the bluetooth speaker when showing off the table/room.

I am planning to put my modal nodes in that second alcove on the DLX side sort of like that image Scott posted.  That seems to be the most likely spot for the band to be.

I'm sure someone will come up with some kind of cheap 3rd party band riser that will fit in an alcove.  I also expect a certain someone will come up with a nice cardboard floor piece and something to close off those three open doors/arches at the back and behind the bar.  ;)

I'm sure I'll be rewatching youtube videos from old Celebration "behind the cantina scenes" type videos for inspiration and to figure out who goes where.
