I would love to see any of those and also the Snowtrooper Commander.

That is super cool!

I think I would have preferred someone other than Vizam, given his similarity to Vedain, but it's ok. Very cool set.

The skiff is very nice and makes me regret not buying a barge. Not that I have anywhere to put it.

Also a highlight for me. Very cool. I don't mind the figures but as someone said I think on Yakface, this would have been an opportunity to do like Hermi or Ephont Mon maybe on the vintage card. But you can't have everything. This is great and hopefully it signals some more sets, either Cantina or Hoth (Echo Base sort of corridors) or maybe the new films too (Scarif/Snoke Throne Room).

Well I wasn't expecting reissues, which Hasbro swore off after the '95 set Ben referenced was received so poorly. I have no interest in these as I have the originals carded and loose, but I would be very interested in an expansion (Tarkin, Wedge, etc.) which is possible should these go over well. I'll probably get Leia and of course a Jawa if they do one.

I strangely still think Tessek is near perfect. I love that figure, and the POTJ era in general. Ishi Tib for sure. Bib I never get excited for in any version, but I'd go for an update.

Didn't buy them but found them at a Target in Iowa. So not sure if the block is in effect.

Quay might be 7 (most of the recent ones are 7 or 8). But definitely he's a great example of a figure who doesn't need much. He looks great, like Moloch or Rio. A couple extra joints on Rio would have been fine, but he's good for me.

Hope TVC still offers something interesting?

This is me. Provided 5 POA does go away, which is a big if I think, I would hope TVC would expand proportionally but that is unlikely. Personally I really enjoy 5POA and outside of the trooper/Jedi/main characters don't really need SA versions of every character. I like them, but 10 POA would be ok. 12. TVC I think is in real trouble already. At least around me, 5POA sells. I know Solo didn't do well, but the figures did. If Hasbro withdrew from 3.75 or escalated prices beyond their current level, I'd be out.

The other culprit is Infinity War. Disney and Hasbro's focus was on that in spring/summer, and I imagine there was some negotiating of priorities. I don't mind Hasbro is playing catch up around the home entertainment release at all, and really I just hope they keep up with offerings from Solo. This the most fun I've had collecting of the new films so far.

I'm sort of torn on wanting SA versions or at least duplicates of some newer figures. Like I caught up on Wave 2/3 of TVC the other night and YAY! but with the exception of Aphra, these are figures I have. Superior, for sure. Some of you were smarter than I am and don't buy all the 5 POA but I love those and they work in most cases. Figures like Rio, or L3 or the troopers, etc. I'd prefer just to see there instead of the inevitable overlap. Like Lando. But you can't have too many Landos.
