I think something similar happened to my E1 Chancellor Valorum.

Hmmm, the Pulse Premium thing is interesting - like an Amazon Prime for Hasbro toys? 

I may bite and order something to try it out for free, but there better be some nice perks if they are gonna charge you $50 a year for that...


Really? I just bought two Scarif Troopers. I hope they get the Tank drivers up at some point. I only got two of those, and I have two tanks. I think we need 3 per tank, unless some other trooper sits in the front two seats (probably a question for Jesse).

Don't forget the TVC148 Tank Commander is coming this year, so you can get by with 4 tank drivers and 2 commanders to crew your two tanks. ;)

Ok so wait, there would be one commander (upcoming) and two drivers (released and impossible to find) per tank, right?

He's in my Jabba's palace display. I'd have to move a bunch of things to get to him.

HTS is now been rebranded as Hasbro Pulse.  They have the Saelt Marae wave up with free shipping until next week.

Yak Face is sold out already.

Wait, what's this about Jabba's melting? I have the Walmart one, but he seems ok. Has this been happening?

Yeah, that about sums it up for me too. Though I haven't seen anything past wave 1 at any of the Walmarts I've visited. And now, they don't have anything at all really.

I just got the impression she was from that refining planet they were on (since the tongues were all cut out there too), or someplace similar. The shock was she was just a kid. I think Han saw a lot of himself in her, since she was a kid trying to take control of her life, as he did, but did something completely different with it.

Making her related to any major character would just be lame and make no sense.

It'd be nice if we can get some clarity from Hasbro at ToyFair as to their distribution plans going forward. It's hard to get amped for a line that's impossible to find, and I'm honestly too busy to hit every store in Massachusetts with the hope that I might eventually find something somewhere. It's like if the choice is between scouring Walmarts across two states to find nothing, or spending time with my kids, I'm going to choose the latter.

I don't have this problem with other lines I collect.

It seems like it's hit or miss though. Some Gamestops seem to "get it," while others really don't. The one nearest to me always seems annoyed when I ask about action figures. They'd rather talk my ear off about new Kingdom Hearts games (which honestly I'd rather peel my face off than give a **** about). So it's like some are almost like game purists, and others are general pop culture. The game purist Gamestops always try to push me toward ThinkGeek.

I now desperately want a Bib Fortuna that can accomplish ninja poses.

Yeah, I sort of do too now.

I strangely still think Tessek is near perfect. I love that figure, and the POTJ era in general. Ishi Tib for sure. Bib I never get excited for in any version, but I'd go for an update.

I agree that the sculpt on Tessek is still excellent, but the amount of gesturing that you can do with the new Yakface makes me want upgraded versions of some of the standout palace guests. The POTJ Tessek really only has one pose, and his cape is really stiff, so no one can stand near him.

Bib doesn't need to get into ninja poses, but he definitely needs to be able to be more expressive, and that'll take articulation.

Definitely agree on the JP Snag, Jesse. I've come so close over the years to just finally banging out a custom of him, but I never pulled the trigger because I feel like we'll get him eventually. The Ketanna release may see a nice little surge of Jabba-related characters, so I'll hold off again.

It's funny, I definitely know that the Ishi Tib figure we have is from Home One, but I've never displayed him there. He's always in Jabba's palace because that's where I associate him with. When we get a new version I'll slot him into the rebel collection finally.

I'd also say it's time for the Max Rebo band to see a complete resculpt. Especially if it comes with a pre-special edition Sy Snootles.

Got my case and boy howdy am I pleased! The "Yak-Face" and Skif Guard Klatuu are just beautiful pieces. And the Leia is well worth it, the paint application on the face alone makes the new head.

These knocked off two of my top wants. Now, lets get ultimate sculpts of 8D8 and EV-9D9 out of the way!

And Squidface, Bib Fortuna & Ishi Tib!

Is there a rumor on that?
