Hasbro Pulse delivered my 90s Retro Spidey Wave 2 a few days ago, but I haven't had a chance to even open the box yet. Excited for the new Symbiote Spidey!

I know a few people who are holding out for Hammerhead to make mafia goons... and it may be smart. I've seen what appears to be solid cases of Hammerhead at two different Targets and a Walmart.

I'm in for the Republic Commando. I'll have to order in-store since Gamestop's website won't allow me to preorder anything for whatever reason.

After the last few Disney Star Wars shows, I have zero faith in this being any good, and I'm desperately trying to figure out a way that I can enjoy it. My biggest issue is that they've all but said Obi Wan is going to face off with Vader, which absolutely breaks the lore of the time between ROTS and ANH... maybe if I look at this as some sort of fan fiction.  :-\

What's weirder is that the Rex and Crosshair exclusives were both priced around $32  ???

Watch them insult us further by using the 2013 Stormtrooper sculpt for Kreel too, instead of the new one from 2020  :P

Finally got a chance to watch the finale after traveling out of the country for work.

Overall this show was really bad. The story was all over the place, stuff was introduced and then forgotten about... hell, Boba doesn't even appear in two full episodes. Also undoes the emotional finale of Mando Season 2 by bringing us right back to the status quo with The Travelin' Adventures of Din and Grogu. The characters were awful

As for the finale... that was the worst battle I think I've ever seen. Why on earth would they not hold up in Jabba's Palace, a literal armed fortress, instead of the blown up casino? Why don't they have any sort of ion cannons or ion weapons to take down those POTF2 Deluxe Figure Robots' shields? Why are the bad guys only able to hit Black ChrisHanson's bandolier, which only covers 10% of his body, tops? Why is Shand killing off the bad guy leaders (that scene was REALLY dark for Disney too) instead of Boba?

I wanted to like this show, I really did. But they've now ruined the Boba Fett character (had the story and timeline not been so inconsistent, that may not have happened), and actually kind of made me unexcited for Mandalorian Season 3.

I had to make a run to Walgreens yesterday and decided to check in the toy section. Still had the same 2 Cassian and Jyn figures from 2016... only now they've raised the prices to the new standard $22.99. Guess they'll keep sitting there!

They specifically talked characters who show up in new Disney+ shows turning up in the 3.75" or 6" figure lines, but Hasbro releases another rendition of that character.  It seems like it's deliberate based on things we've been seeing over the past year or so.  As if a "placeholder" figure will satisfy us.

I would assume that, like the movies, Disney lets Hasbro in on very little of the filming process. Remember when Hasbro said they had no idea what old Luke looked like until they watched the end of TFA? Could be the same thing here. And perhaps these other versions were already in the works; we know it takes something like 12-18 months for a figure to go from concept to release, and we're roughly a year removed from the Bad Batch's premiere. So Hasbro probably hasn't been able to plan a Live Action Bane until he showed up in the series 2 weeks ago. Of course I could be way overthinking this.

Woof, $100 for that Boba throne set? I get inflation and all but that's only $20 less than the last Jabba's palace set that caused all that anti-Muslim controversy a few years ago... and had double the pieces.

Cody has been going up for sale on Amazon and quickly selling out the last few days. I was able to grab one this morning. Good to finally get my hands on that one after Target refused to sell it to me last year.

I was okay with the Zaalbar kitbash because that Wookiee looked like Chewbacca.

This looks like trash.  Pass.

This is genuinely difficult for me to say.  Because I think the Wookiees are some of my favorite aliens in Star Wars.  I was all in on the Wookiees in Revenge Of The Sith.  And I was genuinely disappointed that we didn't get any of the Wookiees from the mines of Kessel in the SOLO 3.75" line.

When Hasbro is ready to make a GOOD Krrsantan in both the Vintage Collection or the Black Series, I'll be there.  But this is just lazy.

I was thinking about this earlier; it's really sad that I can't even find an excuse to buy this figure just to pop into a ROTS/Battle of Kashyyk display.

I mean, if they had just added ANY sort of paint apps to that bandolier, I'd be in for one.

Yep, if this were a few bucks cheaper I'd grab it, but I have the original, so I'm okay. I'm debating selling off my Bad Batch stuff anyway.

Wow, this is one of the laziest efforts Iíve ever seen from Hasbro. Repainted Chewie with a new belt/chest piece that they couldnít even bother to add paint apps to. Iím thinking I can safely pass on this one.

Opening up the 6 inch figures saves TONS of space. I'm just beginning that journey. Plus, I get the nostalgia for carded TVC figures considering the history there. But is anyone really clamoring to keep 6 inch figures in the generic packaging?

I had to order mine from Big Bad Toy Store. I debated ordering a second, but at that price, one is good for now. I'll probably change my mind, but I'm somewhat holding out for a MAFEX or SH Figuarts version from Japan.
