The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Sales and Discounts
« on: February 28, 2024, 02:55 PM »
I've been tempted to get an Indy figure and wonder what the experts (Jeff) would suggest.  I guess the iconic one I think of is the Temple Escape one. I thought there was another one in the Adventure Series that was similar (the same?), but didn't come with the idol , but apparently that sold out.

Hemlock is seriously creepy!

He definitely reminds me of a certain real-life someone in looks...

After watching the third episode of Bad Batch, I was reminded of some others I'd prefer... so made a couple adjustments.

The "It's Season THREE now Hasbro, WTF are you even doing" Category:

It's not just Season THREE (in which we should have gotten more than a few figures by now, one being one of the title characters), it's the FINAL Season.

Where's the strike while the iron's hot mentality?

My 20:

1. Wrecker
2. Echo
3. Crosshair (Imperial)
4. Tech
5. Omega
6. TK Stormtrooper

7. Dooku (Jedi Master)

8. Jedi Temple Guard
9. Umbaran Trooper
10. Mother Talzin
11. Rako Hardeen
12. Asajj Ventress
13. Darth Maul (Spider)
14. Savage Opress (Armored)
15. Embo
16. Seripas
17. AT-DP Driver
18. Asajj Ventress (Bounty Hunter)

19. Sabine Wren (Season 1)
20. Agent Kallus (ISB)

There's a week to go to get your list in!

I got through two... well, more like 1.5 as I kept nodding off the second episode.  I'll have to rewatch the last half and watch the third one to really form an opinion.  The first episode was pretty good though.

not sure if the droid is carded

It is.

Clearance vultures REALLY hurt the vehicle segment of Hasbro's Star Wars line.  Any time an exclusive vehicle got announced there would be a chorus of people saying "I'll buy it on clearance".  And they wonder why Target won't offer exclusive vehicles anymore?  It seems like Hasbro is forcing an uncomfortable conversation with some of these people.

And bravo to Hasbro for doing so.  Why should a group of people ruin it for the rest of us?  The clearance vultures are a vocal group and now we are starting to hear them say the same things about figures in both scales: "Hey! If I can get these at Ross or Ollies down the road for 70+% off, I might as well wait."  That's not going to help us get new figures in the line, nor is it going to instill confidence in the product if the retailers can't sell it in their stores.

It's funny, some people at the SW The Vintage Collection FB group were commenting about buying the E-Wing on clearance.

The group should actually encourage these people to wait for the E-wing to hit clearance and then laugh at them when they realized they've shot themselves in the foot.

"And there was much rejoicing." *weak applause and jeers*

"And there was much rejoicing!" * thunderous applause and cheers*

I don't understand why they could not announce this in the livestream.

IMO, It's nice to have some surprises.
