TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Resistance - Coming Fall 2018

I wasn't blown away by the trailer, but still looking forward to it. It's the definitive "reviews" on the show based off of a one minute trailer that once again have me annoyed with our community. At least pretend you're giving it a fair chance and let the first episode air. Then tell me again how Disney should rot in hell.

On a side note. I can't believe I have to "stick up" for Disney. I don't even like Disney. Up until the 90s their movies were boring, simple, etc. But it doesn't mean they never make anything good. Sorry as we were.

It does get quite silly how people think that they can judge an entire series based on a teaser trailer.

Like anything else?  Let's wait and see.

I’ve been an anime fan going back to when “Robotech” was first released in the 80’s.  So this is somewhat familiar territory for me in terms of the animation.  I can absolutely see how the stylization of the characters might be a departure. But then I looked at the ships, the settings and that Stormtrooper.  And those elements looked awesome!  Having movie actors like Oscar Isaac in the mix lends a lot to the project, too. And was that Grumgar that tossed someone into the water?  Maybe he’s not just some hulking set dressing for Maz’s castle after all!

One question I have about the story relates to things that we learned about Han Solo post-ROTJ in the “Bloodline” novel. He was very much involved in the racing circuit during this era. Could we possibly see him make an appearance in this series?

All in all?  It was a 1 minute look at what is probably going to be a fairly lengthy series.  And I’m sure we’re going to see some more over the next month + leading up to the premiere. 

I was able to pick up two of the Rebel Fleet Troopers and couple of the Porg 2-packs from HTS this morning.

It would be great if Hasbro could find space for some kind of "figure + set piece" sub-line (TFA torture chair + figure; Yavin 4 table + Rebel figure; Sabaac Table + alien dude; Kessel computer terminal + droid; etc). 

This. A thousand times this.

Hasbro will likely not give up on large playsets/vehicles/price points in the near term, if only to continue to occupy shelf real estate in a market that is rapidly shrinking. The SW model of small figure with vehicle / playset pattern is virtually the only one left of its kind not of the Imaginext or Lego variety (well there's Jurassic World) and there's apparently enough interest there to sustain it through what is a clear trend toward six inch and other play patterns.


I actually miss the days of the line back in the early 2000's when they tried some stuff like this.  Remember the assorted droid factory pieces that came in offerings like the Geonosis arena, deluxe figure offerings and basic figure bases?  That was the beginning of something that could have been very cool.  And in the ROTS line when they offered those bases that could attach to one another?  That had some serious potential, but Hasbro never really followed through on the idea.

Check out the first trailer for "Resistance".  It debuts on the Disney Channel on October 7th at 10 PM ET.

They also wrapped the entire box in a protective paper so that the clear plastic would remain intact.

Same here.  And the whole package is a nice set.  Just be prepared, the box is pretty big!

Per this Star Wars Collector posting the Battle FX Stormtrooper will be heading to the Disney Store.  Of course there was no mention of WHEN, but hey, why let people know when they can find you products, right Hasbro?

If they do that?  Do an updated Twin Pod Cloud Car with a droid socket!!!!

Candy corn is most definitely The Suck.

The only way that I could find a way to put this R4 unit into a Bespin diorama?  If the Cloud Car had a droid socket.

I normally like just about ANY astromech droid.  But this paint scheme was just too much for me.

Got the shipping notifications for both the Han Solo and Starkiller base sets. 

The site was sluggish at best.  And at some points I saw the exclusives listed as IN STOCK, but there was no "Add To Cart" button on the product pages.

Well that was a PITA!  Just glad I was able to pick this and the Centerpiece set up.  Thankfully I had some help at SDCC that was able to hook me up with the TVC 3-pack.

I've been refreshing the HTS Exclusives page pretty frequently throughout the morning.  It doesn't appear that they've been in stock yet.
