Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Basic Figures

He's brand new. I also thought he was a reissue, but he's 100% a new sculpt. Worth it if you're a Vader fan or like me, your thousand other Vaders are in a box somewhere.

I got the Vader at Wally today and I have too many Vaders but this is a very impressive piece. Great companion to the Obi-Wan from a few months ago. Vader has a ball jointed head and swivel wrists. He can do some good poses.

I've seen some griping around (imagine that) about this wave. There won't be a trace of these left come Christmas. All of these characters sell down, especially Vader and the troopers. Hoth Leia is a great figure a lot of people are still catching up on.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Who are Enfys Nest's parents?

I remember thinking in the theater for a moment her being Beckett's/Val's daughter was possible, because the reveal was staged in such way that it seemed like she was supposed to be somebody we knew... but the shock I guess was she was a teenager. I don't think she has to be anybody at this point - though I'd love to see her again. Darth Maul! Never heard that one.

I'm ok with the price here. $40 would be great, but with the Red Card discount and the gift cards I tend to collect from other sales I'm ok. I plan on buying a few of these. This is a great set and something I'd love to see more of.

Yes, all of this, yes.

Yep, the scene with Kor is on the DVD. Don't think this is where they source from, but really who knows. It could be a simple scene or exchange, and she's only present for a brief moment.

The question is though, how can footage from Episode 7 serve the story of Episode 9?

Pure speculation, but the most significant scene I can think of involving Leia from TFA that we never saw involves Maz delivering the lightsaber to her. We see a glimpse of this in the Celebration Teaser. I think it's unlikely actual scenes will be grafted into IX though, considering the narrative challenges, but I think this is probably somewhere they're drawing from. I imagine also that they may simply use footage but generate new dialogue, either through recorded sound of her left unused or dubbing.

I expected an off screen death and a funeral and I didn't want that. I didn't want a three movie wake for my OT heroes. I'm glad it's this way, even if it's not perfect. I'm glad because they won't bring her back to kill her off. She's going to survive the movie, and I can't think of anything better that Leia lives, and goes on fighting.

I am cautiously optimistic about the footage from TFA, knowing what some of it is, but mostly I am glad that they found a way to include her. I was not looking forward to an off screen death or RO digital type cameo at the end or something.

Very happy to know she's going to be in the movie.

I'd also love if the Trooper is the officer.

Solo / Re: Target Solo 3.75" Vandor-1 Playset with Chewbacca
« on: July 27, 2018, 02:51 PM »
I love playsets too, and love they're taking a shot at these. Vandor might have been more interesting as primarily the train and track, with some additional elements, but that's really a vehicle. Hopefully the lack of success of the Solo movie doesn't doom these or any other potential sets down the line. Anything from the OT, a Crait Base, Snoke's Throne Room, lots of ideas.

Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Figure 2-Packs

That's true. I think it's an exclusive, or was, to TRU.

Cool for the folks who missed them, but... pass for me.

Curious there were no new two packs announced beyond these. There are still a few Solo figs unslotted from the ones Yakface discovered - the Patrol Trooper, Mudtrooper and Vos. I imagine they're all singles, though Vos could conceivably go with an alternate Qira. Hopefully the 2 packs continue.

I've said three or four times I'll never buy another Stormtrooper, and then I buy three or four of the newest version. Same here. Lando is great as well. Looking forward to this wave.

The legs are... interesting on this guy. Much higher on this figure now I've seen him, though. Great choice to go the RO route.
