I was out in the woods and completely missed this one - both the announcement and the pre-order. 

Maybe that's a blessing - I might be OK with missing the 4th 501st Legion deco repaint of this sculpt if they are asking $17 plus shipping.


Kind of crazy this figure was not something that Hasbro announced at SDCC or HasCon. I felt like this came out of nowhere...

At Pulse Con they did say that there were some items coming to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Clone Wars being a thing but had nothing to announce yet for figures.  I guess they wanted to leave this to Walmart's collector con thingy to reveal.

You can definitely expect more Clone Wars figures (from both series) coming with that "Clone Wars 20" logo on the card.  Not sure if the whole line is Walmart exclusive or not though.

Well, they sure didnít get any kind of bump from PulseCon.

No bump and now it's actually lost ~100 backers the past two days. 


everyone over at Fwoosh is freaking out because they think the Goblin Queen is one of the tiers now.

I guess they were right - unlocks at 10k backers.  Strange that they announced Mephisto at 12k first and now this at only 10k?  Hasbro must be making some adjustments on the fly hoping to avoid their first Marvel Haslab loser project.

Tier #1 - 10k backers unlocks ML6" Goblin Queen Madelyne Pryor
Tier #2 - 12k backers unlocks ML6" Mephisto

I think we might want to consider adding a couple of additional categories.  Perhaps limit these to 10 choices.

-TROOP BUILDER 4-PACKS
-PLAYSET WITH FIGURE

I like that idea....

If they don't want to due true vintage style I'd be perfectly fine with 5POA style modern figures like they made ten years ago vs. retro figures. 

Me too, but the "retro" seems to be their preferred thing right now.  It's kind of amazing that a Star Wars 3.75" line still exists as pretty much everything else (GI Joe, Marvel) has gone the way of "retro or nothing" for 3.75" now.

I think Muftak's guess that any "new" 3.75" stuff they have planned will fall into Retro is a good one.

I can see them pumping out the Kenner ROTLA figures and then giving us a wave of fake "retro" Indy 5 figures.  I'm not even sure they will do TOD, TLC, or KOTCS Retro stuff.

Here was my vote - no particular order:

ANH Arleil Shous
ANH Atheloe
ANH Baniss Keeg
ANH Beru Lars
ANH Garouff Lafoe
ANH Han Solo (Smuggler)
ANH Luke Skywalker (Farmboy)
ANH Princess Leia (Tantive IV)
ANH Solomahal
ANH Tawss Khaa
ANH Tzizvvt
ROTJ Defenestrated Weequay (aka Weequay tossed from Sail Barge window)
ROTJ Fozec
ROTJ Gauron Nas Tal
ROTJ Sate Pestage
ROTJ Shasa Tiel
ROTJ Slim Aloo
ROTJ Taym Dren-garen
ROTJ Velken Tezeri
ROTJ Yotts Orren

(I was very surprised that my list had nothing from ESB - I had a new Bespin Escape Chewie and 3PO on there at one point but I really want more new Cantina/Jabba related aliens more)

Is there still a chance that there will be a 3.75Ē (non-retro) line announced later or is this it for scales and lines?

According to Hasbro today, 3.75" is only the Retro stuff.  I guess that could change as we get closer to the new movie, but nothing to announce now.

I am an idiot - I thought I posted a list in here but I guess I never did. I must have closed the window without posting last week.   ::)

Looking at the list, it's really sad that we are at the point in the line where we have to beg for brand new versions of ANH main characters, but I guess that's where we are at.  We've needed an ANH Tantive Princess Leia redo for a long long time.  Oh well.  Let's hope that Hasbro is still out there reading these things...

You can always use one to upgrade your POTF2 Barquin D'an from the Max Rebo band. ;)

I think there was a Figrin/Bith musician cameo in TBOBF too...

So Retro Indy figures have articulated knees? Is that because thatís how the original ones looked?

Yes, the Kenner figures had knee joints - there was a horse that the figures could ride so they needed knees.

So which Cantina instrument was missing from the 6Ē versions?

There are six instruments - it looks like the 7-pack doubles up on this one -

Hasbro announced that pre-orders for the TBOBF Throne Room playset will close 11:59pm ET on Friday 10/7.

If you want one and haven't pre-ordered yet, you've got one more week to decide.

Confirmed today at the Pulse Con panel during the pipeline reveals portion.  2023 new Endor Bunker playset.

Really hoping for something more than a re-do of the 25 year old POTF2 Bunker, which like others have said still holds up very nicely as a display piece...

Looks like I have 5x Figrin D'an carded figures I no longer need (really glad I didn't open them yet :P).


Announced today - TVC Cantina Band 7-pack  :o - Pulse Exclusive - pre-order today at 6pm ET
