An update on my conversation with Hasbro customer support about my Jabba. While I was at Celebration, they sent me a message saying they could exchange my Jabba for a new one. So they provided a pre-paid postage label and today I was able to get the Hutt packed up and shipped back to them. Interestingly enough, the label had their Pawtucket main office as the delivery address. So hopefully, that will get this moving and I receive a more pleasant to the eye crime lord.

The real question is 3 3/4". Will Hasbro have a 5 POA "for the kids" line?

Yes, Hasbro will have a "for the kids" line...  the real question is whether it will be 3.75" AND 5.5" or just the 5.5" that is 'rumored' (and by 'rumored', I mean not confirmed by Hasbro but confirmed by Jayson/Yakface via leaky e-tailer computer systems across the internet  :P).

In Spring 2020 (post-TRoS), I'd guess there will be:
- 3.75" TVC collector focused with very small footprint at retail but big footprint via 'fan channels'
- 5.5" kids line with sequel trilogy and "galaxy of heroes" character line-up
- 6" Black Series collector focused with footprint at retail and fan channels

I think itís safe to say TVC is already in this state. Outside of Force Friday, I donít expect any major brick and mortar representation for TVC. Maybe a few stores will get a case, but 2018 Wave 1 and the Wave 2 repacks have likely killed Target and Walmartís interest in having this line on shelves

Ran across this wave at Walgreens the other day. First time seeing most of the figures at retail. Keep your eyes opened, they were in the toy/holiday overflow section of the store.

Keep an eye out on Ross, I found in two different stores the Rebolt/Hound 2 pack for $9.99. In one store I also found the Royal Guard single pack figure for $4.99. All those figures Target never got had to go somewhere...

Good to know you can get a pass to be an adult for 5 days.  ;)

I only got to use 3 days of my pass before I had to go back to adulthood  :D

What about that Filoni/Pittsburgh homage Chopper? Now if they could do him in his Imperial colors that would be awesome.

Celebration was a blast as always (this was my fourth one). There was a little JD reunion when I ran into Dale on Saturday. Thought I'd share the photo...

A close look of these in person and Jedi Luke seems just off. I think itís his nose, might be a little too long. Still want it though  :D

It looks worse in person. There is different versions too, all equally ugly.   :-X

A quick a google image search pulls this up, courtesy of Andrews toys...

[edit: picture link removed - Jeff]

Count me as impressed, definitely in on this.

Fly guy has reported that Emperor Palpatine with throne and a couple spare heads and force lightning is coming out.  Deluxe or SDCC exclusive?  Weíll find out more soon.

Let's hope Goldblum is right, this is definitely needed.

It's still a good Chewbacca.  I would like for them to do a Solo version...would go nice with the Han Solo we have.

Put the bandolier from the SOLO 5 POA Chewie on this new TVC Chewie and you pretty much have a SOLO SA Chewie

This is offered from an ebay china seller for like $15....suspicious, but people are trying it.

Couldnít find a listing for $15, but found one for $109.99. Sold 78 so far, crazy!

Is this going to be one of the panels you have to get into the lottery for? I am hoping I can get into this one. If anyone remembers the panel from C6, I sorta prodded Hasbro to confirm the scale of the BMF Slave 1 during q&a, lol

That looks fantastic Lando, very classy display.
