Just placed my order. 

Yeeeeeee-haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!

I appreciate the passion that some have for this, but I also don't understand public shaming.  If it happens, awesome and I will be thrilled.  If not, I'll be disappointed - but I'm not sure we'll ever hear the end of it.

For me, I'm not sure what's worse - the price or the size. 

$500 is a crazy about of money to spend on a toy, but I do think it looks to be worth the price if you can afford it. 

Space is such an issue now, so any time I add something of size, I either have to find a way to get really creative, or subtract something else.  So I guess space is probably my biggest issue that I'll face with this item (assuming it's made).

As for other toy line kickstarters, the ones I am familiar with all needed funding in the range of 80k - 150k... this one is 2.5 million... so it's the most ambitious one that I've ever checked out (by far).

My fear is that a lot of the people who would back this already have.  It if's not at 2500 this coming weekend, I'll be worried, especially since many websites have run articles on it now so the word is getting out there.

Great review, you  just convinced me that I need at least 1-2 sets.  Which, I really can't afford right now due to the Sail Barge.  I'll guess find a way.

Woot!  1000 backers...



...Getting to 5000 though seems really far out and I'm trying not to get my hopes up

Glad you got yours ordered!

I personally do have credit card debt, but it's sustainable (mostly).  Sometime this year, I plan on having a pretty big Star Wars purge and that will wipe out a lot of it, and also hopefully pay for a good part of a 2019 family Disney trip.

Hey, tons of people do.  I hope it all works out nicely for you!

Thanks!

Unfortuantely, I fear the customizing market has dropped a lot (smaller group of people buying them).  I should have tried to sell a lot of customs many years ago.  Just been too lazy to do get around to it.  I plan on giving it a go though in the coming months.  I might be surprised but I am going to tempter my expectations.

I want a few of Aphra just for female custom fodder.  Don't care about the character, but like the figure a lot.

This wave should do fine.  Hopefully Cassian is just 1 per case.

I'd go with:

- RO Cassian Andor x 1
- TFA/TLJ Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) x 2
- SOLO Imperial Range Trooper x 3
- EU Doctor Aphra x 2

I was half a joking about the credit card thing, but half serious.  20 years ago I would have done it, in spite of it potentially opening a Pandora's box.  That's pretty much the whole deal with credit cards.  Instant gratification, prolonged debt.  Potentially prolonged satisfaction too though.  It can be a mixed bag and obviously a lot of people get themselves into trouble.

For those that say you can't afford it, just open a zero interest credit card and pay it off in installments.

Ok cool.  I want more scarif troops too.  Guessing they'll put him on TVC card later?

Do you think that's an all new helmet or did they reuse the Rogue One 5poa Stormtrooper helmet?

EDIT - I don't think it's the Rogue One helmet but it is close to it.  It has some sort of new circular things going on on the sides of the temple area.

The Mimban Stormie, at least, is just a repaint with a cloth cape and new guns.  But Rey I REALLY want a couple of her.  Ugh.  She should be the basic figure and the repack should be the exclusive TVC carded one.

I am thinking the helmet looks like a new sculpt... maybe ball jointed hands too?  The black body suit under the armor looks more textured than any past figure to me, but I am not certain.

I also really am liking the Rey.  I didn't think that version of her was coming in TVC so soon.  It sucks that it's going to be exclusive.  I had a hard enough time getting any other Walmart exclusives that I wanted.

One of the better waves.  Cassian is impossible to get here still and getting a TVC card of him is fine by me since I liked RO so much.  The Aphra figure, whoever she is, is pretty cool looking.  She'll go into whatever random cantina display I can toss her into.  Range Trooper rocks, and Luke was pretty impossible to get here barring a massive glut of them dumped suddenly (stranger things have happened fairly regularly).

Again hope they go heavy on the troopers.

I like this wave too.  I'd guess they pack 2 of those troops per case, and hopefully later carry him forward once more?

I might be able to help you out if you're looking for extras of Cassian.

Aphra is missing her arm tattoos, isn't she?

Maybe because it's a hand painted prototype...

UPDATE - pic here shows the tattoo, though I dunno how accurate it is:

I could be wrong (and often am) but I thought that somewhere it was hinted that the e-tailers would be able to get full cases of certain figures.

As for the case ratio for standard retail, I think Snoke is 2x per case, as is the Stormtrooper.  The rest are 1 per case.  But don't hold me to that later.   :)
