The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 2021 HasLab Black Series Rancor
« on: November 16, 2021, 02:19 PM »
Hasbro released a number of new Marvel Legends figures with the Sentinel.  And they got to how many stretch goal figures with Galactus?  Was it three at least?  The Star Wars team needs to up their game.

The only reason I can think of to not get new figures with the Rancor is that Marvel Legends "cheats" by reusing multiple sculpts/molds. So it's likely more cost effective for Hasbro to include the figures they did with the Sentinel and Galactus, since all they have to do is sculpt a new head.

This is why they should do a 3.75" U-Wing or something like that and have a new kitbashed Blue Squadron figure available with each unlock.

What Nick said. My brain can't wrap itself around funding this Haslab when I haven't received the last one yet.

That really doesn't bother me too much, although it is a lot a cash to spend on stuff you don't have and won't have for a long time.  I know COVID and all the manufacturing and shipping problems are tough for manufacturers/retailers to deal with, so I'm willing to be a little more patient to get the stuff I want.

If they had come out with something sweet in 3.75" - Death Star, ultimate cantina, U-Wing, etc., I don't think I would have had a problem plunking down another $350 for something to be delivered in late 2023 / early 2024.

I get the feeling that Patrick and crew wouldn't want to put an all new 6" figure as a pack-in, and that any all new figure would be released on its own.  They seem too money focused and I think they think that they'd be giving away too much value that they could make through normal retail.  Personally I'd find a general release Malakili figure a little boring with all the other options they've got, and this seems like the perfect place for an exclusive pack-in.

It'll be interesting to see how actively the Rancor gets backed and if they pull out a few stops at the end if its not looking good, or if they just let it fail.

Is Cookie Monster the only thing that hasn't been funded?  I believe everything else has been funded by a pretty wide margin.

Only slightly more interesting than a repacked Gammorean Guard, but they're still not tempting me to throw my cash at this.

I've got a complete carded collection of the Saga and Power of the Jedi I'm looking to offload as whole sets.  I'm guessing everyone here has what they need, but if you know of anyone looking for these please send them my way.

Yeah the USPS has a crazy price scale now for shipping where if the LxWxH is under some magic number it's pretty cost effective, and then one inch bigger and it jumps a ton.

Yeah, if you can keep all the dimensions under 12" its not obscene, but if you cross that magic threshold to 13"+ prepare to have your wallet emptied.

Do we have any idea what the prices will be on these? 

Lots of repaints, but some of the figures are new and interesting. Pricing will really matter if I pull the trigger on these.

Rex has been in and out of stock this afternoon. Finally successfully ordered one.

Thanks for the tip Nick.  I managed to score one too after mashing the reload button hundreds of times!

I've been cleaning out extras lately and posting on eBay and Facebook.

Holy cow have shipping prices gone up since I last shipped a bunch of stuff (probably a couple of years).  Especially the larger boxes - probably $70 to ship a big box of toys domestically.

I watched Rogue One again the other day and boy do we need all the Blue Sqaudron pilots.  I hope Hasbro/Disney makes this the next troop builder 4-pack or starts to work these guys in to the Vintage lineup.  They should be able to kitbash these guys pretty good with new heads, helmets, and paint on existing body tooling.

This week's "Wednesday Wins" at Disney Movie Insiders is a teaser sheet for The Book of Boba Fett for 400 points.   A pretty sweet deal so I ordered one up.

Anybody looking for one of these?  I got mine from Hasbro the other day and the bar isn't interesting enough for me to keep it.   

That would be nice.  It doesn't appear there are nearly enough of virtually all exclusives these days. 

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Resistance

I finally managed to get through season 2 of Resistance while on the treadmill. 

I really liked how the show finished up and they finally got to some conflict with the First Order.  All those final episodes were solid an entertaining.

However, half of the episodes leading up to the final story arc were difficult to watch and just plain stupid.  Anything involving the aces and racing was dreadful.

This series overall was a lot worse than Rebels, which I mostly enjoyed.  My kids enjoyed Rebels and we watched it each week together.  They didn't care for Resistance and gave up pretty quick.

If anyone if considering watching this series and hasn't started, I'd suggest watching the first couple of episodes of season 1 to get to know the characters, and then skipping ahead and watching the final half of season 2.

My Amazon orders for Lando, IG-11, and Teebo all updated from February 3rd delivery dates to mid-November delivery dates.  I guess I can finally stop looking for them at Target in vain.   Hope my Palpatine pre-order joins them soon.

Mine too.

I saw that the 4-pack of Bad Batch Clone Troopers are starting to hit as well.  I hope they put this back up for order as I missed it the first time around.
