There was some retconning of the variety of Sabacc games in the EU. 

I treat it like Poker - same basic game but a LOT of variations to the way you can play it - draw, stud, straight-up, texas hold em, etc etc.

Exactly...  I think that was the plan there.  I think the cards in solo were the same maybe as what WEG put out too even.  Kinda neat. Iím easily amused. 🤷‍♂️

There was some retconning of the variety of Sabacc games in the EU.  To the best of my knowledge the first rendition tho came from a West End Games sourcebook that included a deco of cards and stuff.  I think I might own the book since I have a lot of them but Iím not sure anymore.  Hell To get old.

Says theyíre around but maybe not out yet as Iíve not seen em.  Soon tho.  Soon.

Yeah I think itíll be a similar dealio...  I felt the old deco was fine too though.  That was a figure that seemed to fly under the radar for how good it was.  All those sandstorm figures were nice.

If you have time to post upcs feel free.  Iíd like to pick some of those up for sure.

My Rebels need mounts for their planetary patrols. 🤔

Iím banking on repack yeah...  it makes sense for sure and once again knocks off a collect all 92 figure if they just do regular old RotJ Skiff Lando.  Be cool if it came with all the extra gear too just because but I doubt it.

A new or retooled figure would be a waste of time imho but they redid the Death Star gunner and I felt that was kind of a waste too, personally.  But with Lando it really feels like an updated sculpt is unnecessary.

Iím all ears.  I just am happy when stuff I like is available.

I got a Mimban Stormtrooper and itís depressing me I canít have 100 more...  itís a really awesome sculpt.  They really improved the Stormtrooper.

Iíve heard similar stories on social media.  No clue the point of that street date. 🤷‍♂️

My case is on the way as of yesterday I believe.  That was sooner than expected.  If the wave had singlesnid load up on some Scarrif grunts and doubles of the aliens for customs.

Hmmm that may be a good bala tik update to try.

I was amazed Hasbro seemed to intentionally make his coat removable but I honestly didnít see anyone anywhere mention it.  I donít really read reviews much though, but the only one who I think wouldíve caught it is Jayson.  Itís subtle but it sure seems intentional to me since the arms donít leave a gap when the coat is off.  Itís like it was never there. 

And it does look oddly cool on some imperials...  I havenít tried it on all black suited imps yet but the 30AC Death Star Trooper was pretty flawless looking with it.  I slapped an extra officers hat on him and he was out the door as a colder weather Trooper Officer hangin out and being kinda useless.

My point remains though, Hux is the overlooked gem of the TLJ line.  If I were casting still Iíd whip up some heads for those now useless black FO Officer bodies I have lying around.  Heís my new ASP-7 maybe. 🤔

Fun facts about Hux Iíve seen literally nobody point out...

1) he has a mousedroid you can use anywhere...  ok everyone knows that one sorry.

2) his head is the ubiquitous army builder sized ball so he fits Rebel pilots, Hoth rebs and some other neck balls decently.  Heís kinda generic looking too.

3) His coat has lines on the back cut to match the seams of his sleeves but did you know the coat is removable and those same seams are cut on the back of the figure with no gaps at the arm joint?  IE: Hasbro intentionally made a Hux whose coat is removable if you wanted (I donít think anyone noticed or cared to point it out really?🤷‍♂️).

4) Huxís trench coat very nicely fits onto at least the old 2007 Death Star Trooper making a great coat clad black uniform imperial if you fancy something with some Rogue One/Solo imperial flare to it.  Look neat with your Mimban Troopers imho.

5) TFAís Hux head with hat swaps to TLJ Hux nicely so you can have Hux with hat on too both with and without his coat.

His one ****** drawback is still no holster and he has one because he goes for his blaster when he thinks he could kill Kylo...  kind of a bummer.

I have many Hux and will pick more up for the heads coats and droid.  Iím easy. 😕

If you guys donít mind using our affiliate links (Iím on my phone so struggling to give you a specific one) on the front page for TVC wave 4 case preorders, I know Jeff and myself both appreciate it and the assortment is decent to split with a friend too. 🤷‍♂️

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=hse0370d&id=JE-405087801

I believe the above link works for the case.  I donít see individual figs or sets, or Iíd be ordering a dozen or so Shore Troopers tonight.  :-\

Anyway happy new year guys!
