The Vintage Collection / Re: Airing of Grievances

I agree with your #3 but the everything sucks group is just as bad as the you should like everything group. I still get nothing but joy from this hobby (probably too much). It takes more time money work to get to that joy than at points in the past but I feel bad for all of the people making that same sentiment about not enjoying it anymore.

That's my big question. Will every episode be some flashback some current or was that just for episode 1?

Again I agree. That was too much flashback Tusken stuff for a 38 minute episode of a seven episode show

That was a little weird. Not what I expected and Iím not sure I liked it.

I'm with Dave. I'm not sure how I feel about that episode.

I like the droids but I'll take three repaint clones with 1:1 odds over six droids with 1:6 odds.

That is a very good point Rob. I'm really curious how many 2021 items are now 2022 items.

I was very happy with new releases for BS this year. Admittedly I haven't gone back and done any actually counting how many figs we got.
I was disappointed in the number of new TVC figs we got and Nick's math proves that.
But my brain separates the repacks from that. I just think of them as other stuff I can or can not buy.
I would like to see Hasbro take some of that extra repaint profit and put it into new tooling for sure.
I struggle with agreeing with a lot of people's complaints/ critiques but also very tired of that being such a large chunk of the posts everywhere.

Question:
Let's say in 2021 Hasbro had released the same amount of brand new figs that they did. But instead of releasing X repaints they release X/2 or X/3 repaints. Is the outrage as high? Is there any imperical data that says Y repaints produced lessens new figure release by 1, etc?

Got my Armorer from GameStop today. I know I'm supposed to hate Hasbro and swear off collecting because it's a repaint but I like it.

I'm with McMetal. I'll buy target's and Amazon's and the Wookie from wherever

I still personally would rather have these as Christmas decorations than just another Hallmark Yoda ornament hanging from my tree.

But when are these going to be available? It's Dec. 15th right? Are we pre ordering for 2022?

Glad to have one pre ordered. I'll live that it's a bit over priced. I'll be ready to get outraged if the deluxe line becomes a regular line full of over priced new figs. Not yet

GS says March for both

Looking at my account on Walmart's website is leading me to believe that this arriving tomorrow is not going to happen.

Same!  But then it seems like it's not quite as bad as Amazon listing that Black Series Deluxe TBOBF Boba Fett, and the estimated delivery date was a few days BEFORE the listing even went live.

My Fett says it's coming from Amazon in almost a year from now

I pre ordered mine from Sideshow and it's not on sale, but if you use their payment plan it's far less hard to swallow the price pill.

Cool, can you chime in here when it arrives? It would be nice to hear when it actually arrives given who things are going with shipping.

I'm still going to wait and see on this one.

Will do

Is this thing shipping any time soon?

My pre order says January to March.
