Sorry to hear that Paul

Dave Brandon does it again!

My three are just about the same:

Leia - ANH is the top choice but I wouldn't mind seeing an Ewok Village or a Bespin Escape SA resculpt either

Lando - VOTC is nearly perfect, just needs a new upper body. Removeable cape would be interesting, as Hasbro has multiple ways of going about it

Palpatine - Is the best OT version still the one from the Evolutions set with the awful robe?

Honorable mentions go to Count Dooku, TFA Rey (without the gloves), and Tarkin.

The Ghost
Imperial Shuttle
Jakku Quadjumper

Anakin Skywalker (Phantom Menace)
Admiral Piett
Maz Kanada

Imperial Scanning Trooper from the K-Mart set that had the "roof" of the crate
Jawas (2 pack from 2014-15)
Scariff Stormtrooper

Those would be my Top 3, coincidentally the only figures I don't own and/or never saw in stores.

Other figures I'd like to see:

Ben Kenobi (Legacy)
Plagueis (Black Series)
Any of the Republic Commando figures

I'd rather not open a new credit card just for this though. Tryna be responsible in addition to supporting the cause!

I'm dead serious in that I would sign up immediately if they implemented a payment plan option. Hopefully that comes next!

If anything, I'll probably buy more. I bought a single digit number of 5POA figures (I'm of the opinion that the TFA and Rogue One lines had some of the worst action figures Hasbro has ever produced), and since the WM Black Series line had maybe 4 new figures a year, with only 2 of the 8 figures actually showing up in my local stores, I can't see myself buying less than what I was.

6 inch is a different story. I'll probably cut back and just import the Figuarts stuff from Japan but we'll see.

I really wish there was an option to pledge the $500 and then pay it off in smaller amounts. I'd be able to afford $150-200 a month for 3-4 months. $500 in one lump sum is a lot of cash for me though.

Kinda regretting not buying the 6 inch Jabba now. Who is this guy going to guard in my collection?

Hey, I'll finally own a 6 inch R2-D2 made by Hasbro

I wonder if this is exclusive due to "tooling costs" or whatever else they said about Gree

TRU exclusives are always hit or miss for me. Sometimes I see dozens of them, but other stuff like the 4 inch Rancor box, Astromech 3 pack, Marvel Legends Spidey/Mary Jane and ML Phoenix/Cyclops I have never seen in person

Yep, if this follows the trend of previous WM exclusives, one store will get about 50 of these while the rest of the stores get nothing. Luckily this doesn't scream "must own" to me

I picked up a Switch with Mario Odyssey over the weekend and am loving it so far. Crazy that a system that powerful is contained in what is essentially one of those chain restaurant table tablets, and the games are all on Micro SD cards. Looking forward to picking up more games over the next few months.
