Are we just not going to talk about how Scorch is just walking around with Hemlock?

The first three episodes are pretty solid.  Also glad we can finally put the "ThEy'Re GoInG tO ReTcOn ThE SeQuEl TrIlOgY" idea to bed.

I must have missed the pipeline announcement on this. 

Which of these have we had before and which are all/mostly new?

The pipeline announcement was during the livestream a few weeks ago.  As far as new figures, The Ahsoka is a repack (no big deal, it's a great figure) and the droids are supposed to be a new sculpt...but they look like Build-A-Droid type figures from the photo.  Hard to tell though.

Looks like the pipelined exclusive 4 pack is about to drop for preorder.

Here's the link.

Pre-order window opens at 1 pm EST today.  Nice heads up from Hasbro on this!

I think it's a mistake not using John Krazinski, but ok.

Oh, I know the mechanics of how the canopy opens.  It just struck me as something that probably wouldn't have been designed that way if it was being made as a miniature or a full sized mockup.  The art department as well as the model shop at ILM always took a lot of cues from current and classic aviation in terms of design.  And that cannon just would never have been something that aircraft designers would incorporate in that particular position because it could have a negative affect on crew survival in the event of a bailout.

Ejecting would be a bit of a problem.

Thanks for looking that up Ryan.  I also agree with Rob, the version we got in Ahsoka looks awesome and I prefer it without the cannon.

I'll have to go dig out my Dark Empire comics but I believe there was supposed to be a cannon in that storage space.

Going to need at least three of these!


IMO, It's nice to have some surprises.

I totally get your point, and generally I agree.  But they had a very lackluster livestream and then drop this information a few hours before the pro-order went live.  Why not give us a little time to build hype?

That being said, I missed the opening of the window, and just now went in and put in my order.  Went through just fine.

Imperial walls are just generic enough that they could be anywhere.  I'm all for this!

After over a decade of really nice super-articulated figures, I just can't go back to 5-POA.

Looks cool, love the droid (and it's a carded release).  I don't understand why they could not announce this in the livestream.

That’s really sad.

First Ray Stevenson, and now Carl Weathers. It's crazy that the Star Wars Mandoverse has now lost two major actors in less than a year. Neither of them are really roles that could be easily recast. The characters are both critical too, so they can't just abandon them. It will be really interesting to see how their deaths affect the trajectory of the Mandoverse.

Some villain kills Greef Karga in an attack on Nevarro.  Mando and Grogu go on a revenge tour taking out the baddies.  Tie it to Book of Boba Fett season 1 and have the bad guys who were directing the Pykes.

Agree Nick.  I really didn't expect Hasbro to do it either.  It would've been nice though since these figures should've been part of the Haslab project.
