TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Resistance - Coming Fall 2018

It was good to see some action in last night's episode.  And including Poe Dameron in the story certainly helps.  But I'm starting to take issue with bumbling Kaz and his hapless antics.  I get the attempt to appeal to kids, but Kaz has been coming across like an idiot who barely survives these situations in spite of himself.

Along the same lines as what Matt mentioned, the whole spy/espionage angle could potentially open this series up for some crossover with Rebels.  Specifically, Im wondering if Fulcrum will be a plot line in this show.  A live action Ahsoka Tano is something that a significant segment of fandom seem to want to see.

The way Rogue One established more of the Rebellion prior to the Battle of Yavin was really interesting.  And I agree, the Ring of Kafrene was a pretty interesting location. 

Seeing Cassian build up that relationship with a source like Tivik would be cool.  And incorporating characters like Mon Mothma, Bail Organa, and others on the Rebel Alliance council would build on the depth of the project.  But I really want to see how he "acquires" K-2SO.  That will be fantastic to see!

From a story perspective there are lots of places to go.  In RO Cassian said to Jyn that he's been in the fight since he was 6 years old.  Was that during the Clone Wars?  Clearly the show can't go that far back.  But if the show is talking about the formative years of the Rebellion, will it take on how rebel cells banded together to form the Alliance?  It might be too much to ask if the Ghost crew might have some kind of crossover with this series.

I wanted to get another tank, but even at that one day deal price I couldn't pull the trigger.  It's one of the most amazing vehicles that Hasbro has made in the Sequel Trilogy era.  For me it was a budget decision.

I saw some posts from Fantha Tracks about these turning up in UK clearance outlets that are affiliated with TJ Maxx/Marshalls.  It might be worth taking a look at your local TJ Maxx if you want to get one of these droids on a budget.

I was able to get the 3 x 6 TBS exclusives at the Disney Store today.  The store I went to had plenty of each (Zuckuss, Phasma & battle damaged Stormtrooper).  It was nice to get these relatively quick, and it was definitely easier to get them than the Target and Walmart exclusives.

Nice!  Is it too much to ask that Mace's lightsaber hilt have the initials BMF on them?

The only upside on this release is the improved paint apps.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Solo Wave 4

This wave turned up earlier today on HTS.  I was able to order Val, L3-37 and Rio Durant.  The rest of the wave was sold out.

Are there any good photos of the Battle Droid revealed over the weekend? I keep hearing something about customizable badge rankings or something but can't seem to nail down the details. TIA

I saw the official photos on the Hasbro Pulse IG account.  And I also heard about the interchangeable shoulders.  That was genuinely surprising, and I'd like to see some more reporting or images about that.  Because it might spur some army building with people who want squads of basic clankers, security battle droids or pilot battle droids.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #? - Boba Fett?
« on: October 30, 2018, 08:14 AM »
Check out THIS ARTICLE FROM THE PLAYLIST.  In it Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy states that the Boba Fettl film is no longer in development.  She goes on to state that Lucasfilm's efforts are fully behind the production of the Jon Favreau helmed TV project 'The Mandalorian'.

To me, this makes sense.  The Boba Fett standalone project has been plagued by challenges from the time it was first rumored.  And while later rumors indicated that it might be a bit of a caper film with Boba Fett at the center, there does seem to be some overlap with other projects.  SOLO was very much a caper film, and THE MANDALORIAN is about a yet to be named character in Mandalorian armor.  The best thing to do with a Boba Fett project just might be nothing at all right now.

It looks like the November 1 info might be on point.  I stopped at a Disney Store location today and spoke with the manager.  He looked up the info on Zuckuss and the other exclusives.  It seems like the official date might be Saturday, November 3rd (a flyer for the new Elite Series figures has that date), but he said to check back on November 1st.

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2019 Vintage Collection Wave 2

So it looks like the 3.75" Black Series Chewbacca is getting reissued in this wave.  Presumably, as VC 141.  As Chewbacca figures go, this is a pretty good one.  And the Early Bird version has been reissued at least a couple of times since the original issue (one of my favorite Chewie figures, personally).

I'm kind of curious about the cardback for this release.   Hasbro used the image from the original Chewbacca release on a Kenner card for the 2004 VOTC version, but that figure was styled like a TESB/ROTJ Chewie.  And I think that VOTC version was on either a ROTJ card, too.  Are they going to use that original image again?  It would be odd if they used the one from the Kenner ROTJ cardback.
