The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" Basic Figure Line
« on: September 22, 2017, 12:04 PM »
I see Jayson posted a pic of the Jyn Erso from Wave 2 on Twitter - man. I know they plan these things in advance, but I would have held one of the Jyn variant costumes if they were going to revisit her in this line.

Yeah, that's dumb.  We know she's at least partially new because of the force link, so why not try to do something different with her.  When they rebooted Jakku Rey for the RO line, they at least gave her the new 'head wrap' head sculpt. 

Would have been nicer to get something at least partially new, like Eadu Jyn without her hat on, or even something as simple as sculpting a "hood down"/scarf type piece for this figure since she spent most of the time that way on Jedha.

Pre-orders for this wave are starting to pop up at various etailers...  but with different assortments?  It's all a little confusing with various # schemes at the different etailers (some places are still counting waves since Black Series 6" started, some are only counting waves for red/black box look, some are counting TLJ waves since force friday II, etc). edit: Nevermind* - BBTS updated their case assortment to match the assortment EE/Dorkside have listed...

1x 2017 #44 Rey (Jedi Training)
1x 2017 #45 Kylo Ren (The Last Jedi)   [that makes Kylo 3-for-3 so far, definitely not overpacked  ::)]
1x 2017 #46 Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master)
1x 2017 #49 Maz Kanata (The Force Awakens)
1x 2017 #50 Elite Praetorian Guard
1x 2017 #xx Supreme Leader Snoke
1x 2017 #xx Resistance Tech Rose
1x 2017 #xx Jaina Solo

BBTS has the case for $160 plus shipping #notasponsor

Entertainment Earth has the case for $174.99 with free shipping #jdsponsor

* - NOTE: BBTS originally incorrectly solicited the wave 3 case with the five Wave 2 figures (Finn, Poe, Maz, Leia, Praetorian) plus the three Wave 3 figures (Rose, Snoke, Jaina). The case listing has been revised to the above

I can't believe Hasbro never gave us that easy repaint, I have been wanting one forever.

Would have been nice to get a Rebels 4-pack - Imperial Chopper repaint with maybe R2-D2, R3-A3 (from Sato's group), and BG-18 (from the Mon Cal who made the B-Wing).

But then someone at Disney would have had to give Rebels more than 5 minutes of attention over the past 4 years. :P

Has anyone tried to see if the head from the Rey/Guard two pack fits on the Walmart 3.75" SA body?

I have heard you can swap them pretty easy, but I don't have the SA version yet to verify that... :-\

Plus the Walmart Black Series one...

Yeah, three 5POA versions and the Walmart 3.75" one, which is a super-articulated version of the Playset's 'with Single Blade" version.

Now up for Pre-Order (with December ship date) at Toys R Us.

And, to head off Rob's eventual question - YES, this is a new/different figure.  It is the third version of the Elite Praetorian guard. Not the same as the one in the 2-pack with Rey.  Not the same as the one in the playset with Snoke. Same body.  Different head/helmets.  Different weapons. ;)

2-Pack = Elite Praetorian Guard (with Double Blade)
Playset = Elite Praetorian Guard (with Single Blade)
TRU Force Link = Elite Praetorian Guard  (with Whip-Staff)

Look at the box front from TRU Canada:

I'm not sure if they're sharing DCPIs or not.

Based on the artwork and the jets, you have to think this is an AOTC R2-D2.  The same goes for the new Yoda.  I got the sense that it's an AOTC Yoda purely based on the stance and the lightsaber.  That seemed like it was straight out of Episode II.

If he's flying again in TLJ...

The Hasbro sell sheet lists Yoda as ROTS Yoda (SW E3 SWU YODA). 

The Hasbro sell sheet lists R2-D2 as TLJ R2-D2 (SW E8 DELTA 2 STAKEOUT) so...  wait and see on the flying in TLJ, I guess.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode IX

I get the feeling that Hasbro is mostly at the mercy at Disney's decisions.

Yeah, it could be the train has left the station on a few things, but the movie is stillfilming. It's happened before where toys were bumped last minute. GI JOE Retaliation is the best example I can think of right now. We'll see though.

The thing I come back to is Hasbro's decision to launch the new Vintage Collection in Spring 2018... almost seems like they wanted to have that ready for that time slot in case the Han film got moved out.  They could push back the 5POA Han stuff and not be left in the lurch with something new to offer to the adult fans, then have the usual Marvel stuff out for summer for kids.
