The only character design in Rebels I completely disliked was Zeb.  If theyíd done the McQ concept of Chewie we got a figure of, Iíd love that look more, but what we got just looked out of place, to me.

Now that said, Iíd love to see all the Rebels in TVC, and Iím in the camp that Hera needs her own design separate of the Rebel Pilot figure.  The overalls and stuff is an awesome look to me, though that pilot is a solid base for a custom project and the head is a no brainer there.  I would just love to see a figure like TBS got in 3.75Ē for her.

I have Kanan TBS and itís really incredible and would also be an awesome 3.75Ē Fig.

The way the Disney+ stories are going Iím thinking it could happen some day, but with this line you just donít know anymore.  Kind of a bummer compared to when this stuff was almost a given and it was the most absurd figures that had the question marks, haha.

Agreed there.  Zeb was pretty pedestrian as far as character design goes.

I think that Zeb's character was interesting and funny.  But I agree, the design of the character was not one of the high points of the series.  The Black Series figure was probably the best expression of him in a toy form, but as far as Rebels TVC figures that I'd like to get, Zeb is pretty low on the list.

I wasn't a huge fan of Zeb until I started watching Rebels with my kids. They love Zeb, and so now I guess I do too.

Let's see:

Sedon+bulb+a = Sebulba
Mesa = Mesa called Jar Jar Binks!
Mauv+d+e= Maude = Ackmena
Tucso+ke+n =Tusken Raider (female)
Seattle = Kit Fisto
Bothell+an = Bothan
Wi+t+chita= Nightsister/Talzan/Ventress


 ;)  Totally making it up, but it's a fun game.

As a token of appreciation, I wonder if Jayson will be one of the media insiders that get one of the early shipments of The Razor Crest that he identified ;D

Book of Boba Fett, Boba Fett on a basic card. Same figure, 6 fewer accessories.

Wild guess that they WON'T be reducing the price on the Deluxe Boba Fett (Tatooine).

Clearly it's a Black Series Rancor.




Too soon?

Probably the 6" Holiday repaints that we saw pictures of already... and won't be out until after the holidays.
