Yeah I guess I didn't necessarily take the Canto mention as literal but more themed.

Yeah, Disney gives these made up droids a fun back-story but I'm going to guess this one being from Canto Bight is about as movie-inspired as candy-corn droid being from Bespin/Cloud City is.

Why we didn't get those versions in the WM Black Series line I'll never know.

At the time, Hasbro said they were trying to avoid overlap on those main characters with outfit options- Han/Leia basic outfits got 5POA and more 'collector specific" outfits like Starkiller Han and Dqar Leia got collector figures.  Only problem with that is the 5POA TFA General Leia never got released for some reason.  I still have no idea what happened to that one since it was pretty well confirmed as coming at one point by Hasbro.

I appreciate the effort to try to put out as many 3.75" TFA Han figures as they could, but it is really weird to have a SA Starkiller Han and just the 5POA for his main outfit.  I definitely think they heard the feedback on that, which is why we got 5POA/SA duplication for Master Luke and SOLO Han.

I think Hasbro's basic strategy right now on the OT is to fill gaps left by the original TVC run and also the original 92.

I think I'm on board with what Darby said.  Right now, it looks and feels like the "give us figures of dudes like Tzizvvt or Tonnika Sisters" group is losing out in favor of servicing the "finish the modern update of 'collect all 92' on TVC cards" group.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love new, never before made guys like Tzizvvt and Solomahal.  I'm just not expecting us to be that lucky anymore.  :-\


At what point did Hasbro identify them all as SDCC exclusives?  Because I could see one or more being exclusive to Celebration Chicago.

Sorry I missed your question earlier.  I think that was some post-panel miscommunication.  Early reports I read had them listed as SDCC, but on this NYCC panel slide, it just says "Convention Exclusive" so it could be any mix of SDCC, Celebration or whatever.

I'm going with "**** happens" zombie bite - doing some rando mission and a surprise walker pops up and gets him.  He gets time to go back from mission, say his goodbyes, then Michonne kills/ends him so he won't come back.

There are a couple of TVC exclusive figures that I'm curious about if we're looking at the number sequence (VC 136 & 137) since they ahead of the Han Solo and 41st Elite Corps Clone that were announced.

I finally got a chance to rewatch the NYCC panel today and I noticed this time that Steve Evans says that the eight TVC figures left to be revealed are all from the Original Trilogy (around the 34min mark of this video).

ANH Han, ANH Chewie, and Bespin Luke have been rumored for a long time.  Vader, Hoth Leia, and Fett were rumored earlier this spring too but those could just be the TVC re-releases they announced at NYCC.

Thoughts or guesses on who/what we're getting?  Below are the eight that are left to be revealed for Spring/Summer 2019.

Basic Figures:
2019 VC141 To Be Announced [2019 Wave 02]
2019 VC149 To Be Announced [2019 Wave 03]

Exclusives:
2019 VC136 To Be Announced [?? Exclusive]
2019 VC137 To Be Announced [?? Exclusive]
2019 VC144 To Be Announced [?? Exclusive]

2019 VCxxx To Be Announced [Convention Exclusive]
2019 VCxxx To Be Announced [Convention Exclusive]
2019 VCxxx To Be Announced [Convention Exclusive]

Did we never start a thread for this OUS convention exclusive 2-Pack?  I can't seem to find one...

Yakface has news that the set should be going up for pre-order on November 6th.

Star Wars Resistance / Re: Star Wars Resistance 3.75" Basic Figures
« on: October 8, 2018, 10:52 PM »
is it basically the next Solo wave (Beckett, Val, etc), then right into these early next year?

There are UPCs for nine Solo figures still to come -
Tobias Becket
Val
Rio Durant
Quay Tolsite
L3-37
Han Solo (Mudtrooper)
ROTJ Royal Guard
"Vesta Driver" (Imperial Patrol Trooper)
"Hades Joker 1" (?)

Not sure how/when the Resistance stuff will get mixed in, on the Solo cardback or something new for 2019?  I put in a few questions to Hasbro but haven't heard anything back yet...

It leaves me wondering why they wouldn't have gone with the Bespin version.

It sounds like the simple answer is that they went with the oldest stuff first.  Most of these are from TVC 2010 Wave 1. 

I agree with everyone here.  I probably would have gone with the most popular/in-demand repacks first.  I will give them credit though for picking Echo Base Han - choosing Bespin Han to repack here would have made them a perfect 5-for-5 in selecting characters that just got released as new 5POA figure sculpts within the last calendar year.  :-X #monotony

The Rocket Trooper looks pretty cool but I don't recall the design. What is the source?

Star Wars Rebels version of an Imperial Jumptrooper.

**scratches head** Am I the only one that thinks this is going to be a mess for Walmart?

Just to clarify, these three are regular non-exclusive basic figure releases.  Not Walmart exclusive.  Walmart SKUs are provided by Jayson for those who like using brickseek.  No use providing Target DPCI here since it's not helpful for locating specific figures.

As for Walmart specifically, pretty much EVERYTHING they are doing right now is a mess, so why would this be different for them. :P

I assume these are going to be a three pack, correct?

It looks to be the new TVC Stormtrooper sculpt from the Rogue One cardback with a new head.

Actually looks like the old ball jointed Sandtrooper/whatever sculpt, not the Mimban one.

Yeah, the arms, knees, and holster off the belt make it look like it's on older Stormtrooper, but now with new Han head (not sure if it's a new head sculpt or just the new face deco technique applied to one of the old heads).

The more I look at it, the more it looks like 2014 Black Series #08 body.  That upper arm armor is the give-away.
