I'm with Nick. This isn't about "one person wanting one figure". It's about not changing the standard for one person.

I don't actually think the Tonnikas will be a part of this. So this would then be a unnecessary discussion.

But to me it's too extreme. Of course this tactic has been used forever. But the long term collectors have clamored too long for these figs to have them a part of a $400 item.

Maybe there are other examples and because I either didn't care or bought the item, I'm being unreasonable.

Or maybe I'm over thinking what the Tonnikas mean to people.

Yes but I'm not a casual collector. I am clamoring for the Tonnika sisters. I don't want a playset for $400. It would be a dick move to then stick them in a set that costs $400 when they (not that they are gonna make them) finally do make them. All they are doing is annoying one of the people that still buys most of their product. One of the few people that doesn't think everything they do is already a dick move. I don't have to be on an extreme budget to not want the cantina.

Just got mine as well and totally agree with Rob.

I almost never complain about what Hasbro does. If they lock the Tonnikas behind this pay wall I will be outraged. Do a multi pack figure set shortly after, but do not make them a part of this.

For those buying these (Rob), do you think one could make a squad of Stormtroopers that would look OK if they were not with regular 3.75 figs?

Yes thanks Rob. I canceled my Stormtrooper pre order and any thoughts of it being army building worthy.

The Retro TPM 6 Pack hasn't gone up for pre order yet has it?

Anyone know if Grogu and Mando are different from previous releases?
FYI some of these are up on Amazon for $12 now

The use of the word "consensus" for this poll everywhere is rubbing me the wrong way.

Just found an HK Assassin Droid at a small Target.  Didnít expect that.

I canít remember, weíre there more than one with this body and paint scheme in the show or is he a one-off?  Wondering if Iím keeping my preorders or
canceling them.

Woah, new show toys at retail within a month of the show ending? What is this black magic *******?

There are definitely multiples. All of the ones in the Nightsister Temple were unique. I'm not sure if that means they all unique though. I plan on keeping a few extras of the basic figure, and fully expect we will see this again in a troop builder pack w/ the alternate decos.
Tangentially related, my daughter loved the Young Jedi show and watched all of it when it came to D+.  She wanted toys but there were none.  Yesterday I was at Wally and I noticed an entire line of figures (and vehicles!!),  Would have been nice to have when she was more into it.

No real point at this point to my post, but this line was in stores in June. I bought the three main Jedi kids.

I've had times where that happens on an item like this. Supposed to ship then gets delayed. I'd expect a refund message in next couple days. Then they'll recharge when actually ship.

That's fair. I overstated 10 tidy packages. But I'd rather hope to see more Baylon (however they'd do that now) and what's up with the Mortis statues than have them end it somehow because Filoni doesn't know if he's gonna get to finish it.

I hated Dave's (JD member) take on Shin. I'll take her kinda less than amazing ending with the hope there's more of her than another boring Inquisitor.

I think what I'm trying to say is I didn't love the finale, but I'd rather they leave stuff open to continue even if the don't, over too many completed arcs because it may not get another run.

I can't believe how many good stories you missed Muftak by not finishing Clone Wars and Rebels. You can do better.
