The Vintage Collection / Re: 2018 TVC Walmart Exclusive Figures
« on: February 17, 2018, 09:03 PM »
Cuz WM has the largest retail footprint in the US and shitloads of $ haha. 

That said yeah this was the worst news I can think of out of the show, that WM has any exclusives much less some of the TVC figures I'd really like to own. 

The Mimban Stormie, at least, is just a repaint with a cloth cape and new guns.  But Rey I REALLY want a couple of her.  Ugh.  She should be the basic figure and the repack should be the exclusive TVC carded one.

What CHEWIE said.  I don't ever recall Hasbro saying the tanker was coming with it but I see people thinking it is.  I think there is confusion because it's being shown and mentioned around the Tank since last year but yeah, I believe he's just a basic figure.

Man that Mimban Trooper and Range Trooper look pretty awesome.  Han too.  The quality figures make me even more amped to see the movie and what all they do.

I'm probably in on cases of the new stuff.  I really hope they do try hard, very hard, to mix the new and obviously popular (Hoth Rebel) in heavier than repacks. 

Repacks are a necessity at this point, and I like the cards, but I just hope it doesn't cost the new stuff or popular repack stuff in the long run.

If 5000 people don't step up to get this made, I really hope I can stop reading about how important collectors still are to the hobby, because 5000 is a drop in the bucket in terms of #s of people who buy Star Wars stuff.  I honestly think it's very obtainable.  People just BLEW through the kickstarter for another toy line right now.  I mean just tore it up in 24 hours and were into the stretch goals within 48. 

$500 is a lot of money for all of us, I totally get that.  And I totally get it if you can't justify paying it and supporting this.  But at the same time that number seemed shockingly low to me for them to make it feasible.  I dunno.  I hope it gets done.

The tank is insanely well done.  To-scale, full detailed interior based on the ICS design for it.  Only missing the commander at this point, which I'd gladly buy for all 3 of these I intend to own out the gate.  The tank is so reminiscent of the StgIII from World War II, to me, and that's one of my more liked designs from the war.  I love what Hasbro was able to put together with this, and the opening Kyber Crystal container that has a removable container INSIDE the larger container, and then a further removable crystal.  That's just awesome.  I wish it came with the commander as a pack-in is my only wish, but I just hope they repaint the tanker to make the commander now.

Love this thing!  Easily the most cool thing they're doing, to me.

Ugh yeah half that looked like ****.  Clearly I was working off my phone.  Apologies for spamming the thread I just figured most people would find the information here so I was furiously typing like a 15 year old on my phone.  I even have a 6S+ and it's still too small for my pudgy digits.  haha

Tried to keep you guys updated here.  Sorry we couldn’t attend but it’s always a busy time of year for Jeff and myself.  The Star Wars portion is done.

Who is gonna pony up $500 for a 4’ Skiff with tons of interior detail a Jabba Figure and 2.5 square feet of display space by april 3rd?  🤔

I think I might.  I’ve bought cars for less that I drove for years and this I won’t send to the scrap heap after a few years. 🤷‍♂️

Jabba Barge model is being shown.  Tons of features and a Jabba included. 

This is as exciting and new as I can think the line maybe has ever been.  Opens a huge door for collectors to put up or shut up.

For twitter follows I recommend Galactic Hunter and Star Wars Action News to stay up on things during today’s presentation.  Oh and Adam Pawlus’ 16bit account cuz he’ll keep you up to date on everything else too.  So you kinda know what they’re talking about that probably doesn’t interest you but you’ll also know when Star Wars begins.

Per twitter there will be a Hasbro Pulse app that lets you manage your collection.  That seems like a solid idea if it’s done right.

I have a black 3po and it is glorious for reasons I cannot explain.  Quickly became one of my favorite droid figures though.

Tooling isn’t so much the issue as labor and a decade of socio economic change in China and more stringent regulations from the US.
