Title: TLJ 3.75" Home Entertainment "Battle on Crait" Figure 4-Pack
Post by: Jeff on January 12, 2018, 10:35 AM
We haven't heard officially what's in this box set yet, but it's now up for pre-order (https://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HSE0321&id=JE-405087801) at Entertainment Earth. #sponsoredlink

I doubt anyone is going to actually pre-order this as the TFA Maz Castle set and the Rogue One Jedha box sets both saw deep discounts, but if you want to the link is there. :P

I'm really hoping this box set turns out to be like the Rogue One set (3 new, 1 repack) and not the TFA set (3 repack, 1 new).  The optimist in me is hoping for the 3 new/1 old, but it seems kind of hard to find a spot in the film where you could grab enough unmade characters.  It's much easier to imagine Hasbro going the 3 old/1 new route for this 4-figure box set:

Ahch-To: Exile Luke, Island Rey, Chewbacca/porg and Caretaker (new)
Supremacy: Snoke, Kylo, Rey, and Praetorian (new weapon)
Raddus: Leia, Poe, BB-8, and Holdo (new)
Canto: Rose, Finn, DJ, and Alien (new)
Slicing Mission: Imp disguise Rose, Imp disguise Finn, BB-8, and Imp disguise DJ (new)
Crait: Rey, Kylo, Poe, and Luke (new)

It'll be the same as TFA Maz set but Maz will now have a jet pack.

Admiral Ackbar, Nien Nunb, Deleted Character  and some troop builder that won't be offered anywhere else or ever again.

Or
It's just some darts and a dart board with Rian Johnson's picture on it.

I really hope it goes the RO route also, but the lack of info about it has me concerned. Hasbro touted the RO one very early. So either there's a figure they consider to be a spoiler in there, or it's a bummer.

Hedging my bets:

Rey (Jedi Training)
Kylo Ren
Praetorian Guard (variant)
Luke (Crait)

I know this has been in the pipeline for a little while.  And I saw this description on EE's listing:

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Home Entertainment Action Figures:
Includes 4 unique 3 3/4-inch action figures. Details regarding this item are yet to come.


Based on the previous 4-pack releases, I'm not holding my breath that this set will have 4 all-new or "UNIQUE" figures.  The R1 set was decent in that it gave us three all-new figures.

In the words of the Zen master, "We'll see..."

Considering Yakface's update on the name of the pack - The Battle of Crait - I feel stronger about Luke. Also I wonder if there's an opportunity here for a AT-M6 Driver, even though we didn't see him in the movie.

"Battle of Crait", huh?

It's reasonably open-ended.  Especially since we got 3 x new figures in the R1 set.  My guess?

-Kylo Ren
-Luke Skywalker (Force apparition)
-AT-M6 driver
-Finn (ski-speeder pilot)

Uh...  not what I was hoping for at all.

Salty-Boots Rey
Crait Poncho Rose
First Order Gunner
First Order Snowtrooper (some kind of Driver repaint?)

I'm not surprised by the inclusion of Rey.  And I'm okay with the rest of the figures, too.  It's new enough for me to not be grousing over buying it. 

As for other characters that could have been included?  Truth be told, I'd rather get Force projection Luke Skywalker as a TVC line figure.

Post by: Jeff on January 24, 2018, 01:19 PM
I know repacks and repaints help the costs, blah blah blah but it just feels lazy.

I guess we'll see how much of the gunner is actually new (could be just the head), but I was hoping for something more than two repaints, a new poncho for a repack and one new figure.

I guess I would have rather had one of the Rebel grunts from the trenches or Connix instead of Rose.

The Gunner looks like a completely new figure to me.  I'm not crazy about the rest of it.  The paint scheme on the Snowtrooper looks consistent with a trooper that LEGO had with their AT-M6.  But I'm also mindful of what came in the TFA and ROGUE ONE sets.  I'm more interested to see what else rolls out with the TVC line

Maybe my memory is failing me, but I don't recall Rose wearing a poncho...

I think it might be from when she was piloting the Ski Speeder.

Is this exclusive or does "home entertainment" just mean it's for the blu-ray release?
Title: Re: TLJ 3.75" Home Entertainment Action Figure Set
Post by: Nicklab on January 24, 2018, 01:44 PM
It's going to be at wider retail, and should coincide roughly with the BluRay release.

Yeah, she puts the poncho on over her first order gear once she rejoins the resistance - like Nick said, she's wearing it in the ski speeder -

I think "home entertainment" is easier than saying "Digital Download, On-Demand Rental, DVD, Bluray Release Day".  It should hit (and be blown out at clearance prices) everywhere just like the TFA Maz Castle and Rogue One Jedha 4-packs. :P

It's not amazing but at least there's a reason to keep all four figures

Rose doesn't even come with the stun gun, of which the 5POA figure has a better paintjob than the 3.75 inch Black Series. I'd been holding off on that buy, and if it came with this set it would be an instant purchase. Now I'll just keep the cash and get the discounted 5POA Rose.

Post by: Jeff on January 24, 2018, 02:05 PM
At first I assumed the Rose was just a repack of the First Order Disguise Rose with poncho (with her boots and blue legs), but the higher res pics show she has a white clothing arm so she must have a slightly different torso under there too.  I guess she took off the First Order jacket and then put the poncho on. ;)

I wouldn't mind seeing that Gunner in the 6" line, or the driver for that matter.

From the looks of it I'd guess  she stole Han Solo's old clothes.

Not a bad set. I'll get one if goes under $10. Maybe. LOL.

So this is interesting.

I'd rather have Luke as a TVC/SA figure, too, but his absence here is odd. Rey I knew was a lock. The Snowtrooper is clearly meant to be the AT-M6 Driver, but that design per the LEGO version utilizes the TIE Pilot outfit rather than the Snowtrooper, so this is odd. The FO Gunner is very welcome. Rose wears the poncho in the Ski Speeder. There's a good look at her in the Visual Dictionary. I wanted this figure, so that's cool, but I would have preferred Luke, a Resistance Trooper or the Crait Leia.

All of them are way to under-articulated for me.

This is correct.  I caught it when I saw the movie last night.

 I never noticed her in the poncho. I wanted Leia with her gun and a Crait Resistance in this pack. Oh well. At least there are 3 new figures. I guess Force Projection Luke will be coming single-packed in a year from now?

New pic from Toy Fair (I see Rose has her necklace) -

My order for this set arrived from EE yesterday. Not a bad set, not a great one. Better than the TFA one, but nowhere near as good as the RO one.

The Rose is the best figure in the set - slightly different legs from the 2-pack set, poncho is made of really flexible soft plastic so it won't interfere with putting her in the cockpit of the ski speeder, she has wrist articulation and sculpted on her torso is the necklace she wore in the movie.

The First Order figures are decent enough, and it's always welcome to get more figures to add to the First Order ranks, so they get a pass.

The Rey is included here because that's the pattern for these 4-packs, but I would have much rather seen them include a Resistance Ground Trooper than this Rey sculpt again.

Saw these on a peg at Target today, I think $24.95. I'll hold off until they have a promo. (Maybe during the video release?)

I didn't notice in the online images how much better Rose' face is sculpted over the goofy looking one packed with BB-8.

I picked mine up. I know the Exclusive Emperor 3 pack is an exclusive, but I still wonder how one justifies offering a 3-pack and 4-pack for the same price?

I picked up this set last night.  All in all, it actually looks pretty good.  Rey seems like the only real repeat.  And even then they tried to give her some deco that would be a little different.

Yeah... I thought Id be adding her to the resell pile, then I saw that shes got Crait dust all over her shoes, which makes no sense since she never set foot on the planet, but oh well.
