The Vintage Collection / Re: JediDefender Vintage Collection Wishlist?

Actually, I like that idea, especially since I felt the Anthology category drew from two sources where Live Action had too many sources to pull from.

So are we starting up a "Defender Wishlists 2023: The Original Trilogy" in September to keep things rolling each month or are we taking some time off before we go again?

I am up for whatever people want.  In the past year, we've gotten 10 out of 140 figures.  Would definitely love to get more participation so that we can get a top 20 without having to use a randomizer to fill out the last few spots.

Even Transformers are getting the holiday love (albeit not a repaint, afaik) with Frankentron.

The whole point of Ezra’s sacrifice in the first place was to get rid of Thrawn. Handing his allies the means to rescue him negates everything Ezra set out to do. Oh and also Ahsoka too. When you look at it from that perspective it seems like one of the most insanely idiotic decisions ever.
But clearly they wanted it to be a conscious decision by her. .... Her life is a lot different than when "Rebels" was happening.
Sabine has been conflicted and different throughout the series, and now we know why.  She lost EVERYONE.  All of her family was lost on Mandalore.  That's why she put away her armor.  That's why she's been distant.  Baylan saw that and used it to manipulate her.  Her desire for family and that connection to Ezra proved too strong for her to resist.

I think it goes back to what the Nicks said.  Sabine lost everything in the Night of Thousand Tears and now that Ezra is the only family she has left, she isn't willing to sacrifice him.  I hope they expand on her loss a bit more than what they did in later episodes, because I felt it was a little glossed over.

It does feel like a lot of procrastinators for sure.

Or a bunch of FOMO from people who have already bought.  I've seen soooo many posts of people saying they are buying extras just to make the final tier which makes me wonder if Hasbro is playing some games to get more $$.

There's no doubt Zeb will make it.  Hasbro just likes playing with everyone's minds.

Prevent another all-out Galactic War by shooting a stupid map.

I'm wondering if a blaster would even destroy that map seeing as it took Baylan's lightsaber several seconds to do it.

Serious question, though, why didn't Ahsoka fight Marrock and Baylan with two lightsabers instead of one?  Did one get damaged in the initial fight?

After the Ghost, I'd really like Hasbro to have mini-Haslabs that focus on never-before-made figures multipacks that wouldn't sell well at retail.  Have a focus on Jabba's Skiff/Barge guards, Cantina denizens, characters that interacted with the Razor Crest, characters that interacted with The Ghost, Jedi, Ewoks, Partisans... the possibilities are endless.  Make the packs on cards (like the 3 packs we've been getting) but put them in the $100-150 range (for 4-5 figures).  They could do this a couple times a year, once during a big Haslab campaign, and I think collectors would be for that.  But I know I'm only dreaming.

This episode was okay, but whoever comes up with the storyboarding is horrible.  Why would one continue to fly directly into the path of a barrage of laser fire?  Why wouldn't one try to find a weakness in their range?  Hera did it in episode 2 and Sabine did it in this episode.  Also, bad guys, why would you aim at Ahsoka when you could just blow up the ship she's standing on?  And I'm pretty sure they used the same effects shot at least twice when they were firing on Ahsoka's ship.  Perhaps it was a nod to the original Battlestar Galactica? 

Sorry, these things took me out of the story a bit.
