Disney Parks Droid Factory / Re: 2017 Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset

That paint job is terrible IMHO.

It seems more orange and black than brown and weathered for some reason.

For $100, it seems like a pretty nice set.  Some fun features and a larger size than the previous Hasbro crawler.  I'm sure I'll end up buying one but no rush at this point.

Just wanted to pop in and offer a big THANKS to all of you who have ordered with the JD EE referral links.  Between the Wave 2 and 3 pre-orders for the troopers alone (range trooper, tank driver), we've earned nearly enough for two months of server fees!

So yes, EE charges $14 per figure, but know that you're basically tossing $1.40 at JD (and saving gas money) with each figure you order!  ;)  Thanks everyone!

TVC Wave 2 links:
- SOLO Han Solo
- SOLO Enfys Nest
- RO Imperial Combat Tank Driver
- RO Imperial Deathtrooper

I'm hoping EE sells the range troopers individually.

Not yet, but soon...

Disney and Hasbro have done their best to kill any fan interest in star wars.

JTA just called; They want their hot take back.

Getting a lot of reports of TVC Wave 2 being found at Walmart (FL, MD, IN, TX, OH, MI, NC)

I checked a local Walmart last night looking for Solo 3.75" Wave 3 and they didn't even have pegs for TVC in the SW section yet.  They did however have TVC Jyn and Rey in the clearance area for $12.93 though...   ::)

I guess I'll just stick with my EE pre-order on this wave. :P

Collections / Re: How Much of Your Collection Do You Display?

I assume Iíll be dead and itís still in a stage of not quite complete.

Probably the most accurate statement about displaying a collection that I've ever read.

Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Basic Figures

Is Kylo Ren the same as any of the past iterations (aside from the Forcelink 2.0)?

Kylo is the figure/sculpt that came with the TLJ ForceLink 1.0 set.

Solo / Re: Target Solo 3.75" Vandor-1 Playset with Chewbacca

It's not going to sell.
I think this one has clearance written all over it.

Well, since 90% of Star Wars toys seem to hit some type of clearance these days, I'd say that's a safe bet.   :-X


Hasbro is probably going to conclude that play sets are a dud after this.

Based on all the evidence the past few years (TFA Falcon clearance, AT-ACT clearance, TLJ BB-8 playset clearance), I think they can already see the trend when it comes to "big" playset type sets.  Outside of a HasLab type setting for an OT-themed playset, no one wants to to pay the $$ for it. 

I give Hasbro props for doing something different and trying to find a way to get playsets out there for under $50.   In my mind, they went with a $45 "Palitoy Death Star" cardboard thing instead of a $200 "Kenner Death Star" type set.  Is that the right call?  I dunno. It may not work, but at least they tried something new to serve that market at a lower cost. 

I think I'm at the point age and collecting-space wise where (outside of a HasLab Death Star playset), I'd rather they just focused on giving us some kind of line with better accessories/set pieces instead of the whole playset.  It would be great if Hasbro could find space for some kind of "figure + set piece" sub-line (TFA torture chair + figure; Yavin 4 table + Rebel figure; Sabaac Table + alien dude; Kessel computer terminal + droid; etc). 

Instead, I guess we just have to wait until 3rd party "space wall" type guys help us out on that sort of stuff.

the price is going to have to be lower than $60.  Ideally its closer to $40 for me to bite.

If that's the case go ahead and ignore the link until about six months from now when they are trying to clear out the left-overs that didn't sell at $59.99. :P

Sounds like the Amazon exclusive Red Squadron Astromech 3-Pack has been popping in and out of stock the past two days - keep an eye on the link if you're interested in adding them to your collection...

What do you mean the 'fact' that it's a Bespin droid?

Disney gives all these droids a back-story.  Last year's Halloween droid worked for Darth Maul on Dathomir.  This year's Halloween droid works for the residents of Cloud City -

I went ahead and bought one for $24 shipped... it's $6 or so more than the app would be, but it seemed worth $6 to just be done thinking about it.

Thanks once again to Rob jumping early and the rest of us benefitting -  >:D


Props to Jayson for the heads up - this little guy is on the ShopDisney app now.  Search 'halloween droid' and he pops up.  Ordered mine for just under $18 shipped to my door. :)

I will want fodder and duplicates I feel sure.  But knowing I have my minimums met is nice.

Same here - I'll probably pick up a couple extra Solo Han figures if I can find them for 'old Han' head swaps and what not, but not at $13 each.  But I'll pay the EE price to make sure I find a couple for sure, especially on that Tanker Driver.
