Want to save on 6" troop building?

Star Wars: Rogue One The Black Series Imperial Hovertank Pilot - $14.99

Damn, they're not available for shipping, only store pickup.  These are $34.99 in Canada.   :(

I'd be happy to grab one or more and ship them up to you for cost if that would help? 

Well, I have mixed feelings on all this.  For the EU/Legends stuff, I'm just happy to get anyone now that Disney has bought SW.  I'd love to get some of the key New Jedi Order figures or a Barabel figure at some point, but I'm not holding my breath.  Like Nick, I'll take whatever surprises pop up, but not expecting much more.

For something like Rebels though, I am really frustrated by the lack of a complete core team.  It's Disney created, it's been on for years, and they've even incorporated some of the characters into the movies.  The Thrawn set is cool as all get out and I like the 40th Anniversary figs, but not having a complete 6" team is just all kinds of dumb.  Heck, they could have slipped a few of these characters into the 40th anniversary line instead of doubles of some characters.  They must just not want to make money at Hasbro.   

I haven't read the Aphra stuff yet, but I'm hoping it's better than the crap I've read online.  I think she is a main character in the Vader comics and has her own series now.  Seems like a character created for iPhone millenials, with her dialogue straight out of Saturday Night SciFy movies.  You can read up on her here if you're interested. 

Chelli Lona Aphra was a human female archaeologist who was recruited by Darth Vader after the Battle of Yavin. Aphra, along with her two assassin droid companions, 0-0-0 (Triple-Zero) and BT-1 (Beetee), fulfilled several missions for Darth Vader before falling out of his favor.

Maybe they'll make her a pack with her assassin droids?  That at least sounds a little promising. Some of her less inspiring quotes:

"Mom's dead in a ditch on that alien world she took us to when she left you for being obsessed by old dumb stuff! Oh—the psychologist says I may have some issues. Fair to warn you."
―Chelli Aphra, to her father

"You...are even more interesting than I could have hoped, Sir Vader."
―Aphra to Darth Vader

Sounds good.  Thanks Metal!

There could be all kinds of subplots for this.  The Jedha guys were Rebels, albeit extremists, so it's not all that hard to believe survivors would have joined up with the rest of the Rebels.  Maybe that was too far fetched and that's why they're in the deleted scenes versus the actual movie.

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2017 Hasbro Star Wars Fan Figure Vote

Funny how these events seem intended to drive collector excitement and seem to have the exact opposite effect.  I'm not excited about anyone in that list.  Aphra is a joke, Ahsoka would just be a re-pack of the WM-BS from last year, and where did the Emperor come from?  I'm not even going to vote - it clearly doesn't matter since they'll just make whoever they want anyway.  I really try to avoid the HAsbro bashing bandwagon, but I wish there was some better way to send a message back to Hasbro that this is not acceptable.

The case ratio is 4-2-6, aptly mapped to LV-426.   ;)  You get 4 Green, 2 Blue/Bloody, and 6 Blacks.  I don't care so much about the Blue one and it sounds like you'll have an extra green and black available, so I'd take those two off your hands if you don't need them.  Thanks for going in on the case and offering them up!

I mean, what am I gonna do? Spend my extra dough on Star Wars?  Hahahahaha!   :'(

That little R2 figure looks awesome.

Id just like to find these.  Apparently Target is not carrying these in my neighborhood according to their website.

I thought displays at Target were mandated by corporate.  I'm not sure if the current SW display is Hasbro driven or Target driven, but if it's coming from Hasbro I would think all stores need to have it up within a certain window of time.   :-\

I might be able to help you out with a big lot of these.  I think I Was collecting 2x of just about everything through the CW line.  Might take me a few weeks to dig them out, but would be happy to sell off a big lot of them to get you going if you don't mind waiting a bit.

Hindsight is 20-20, but count me in with the "Tired of Inhumans" crowd.  I really struggle to comprehend the Marvel U factions that hate on DNA-related super beings, but have no problem with the rest of the Super Heroes.  Why would people feel Daisy/Quake is a bigger threat than Hulk or Thor just because she got her powers from her DNA?  I would think the average person either just loves or hates all people with powers based on their personal experiences.

I didn't mind the ghost rider stuff, but ditching Mockingbird was a mistake, as was bringing in a different Shield Director. They could have just made the Director Fury and limit his appearances to make him more secretive, or bring in Maria Hill as acting directory like the comics.  They've tried to create some of the "is the Director good or bad" mystery and drama with this other guy, but it hasn't played out well in my opinion.  I kinda wish they had focused more on working to re-establish Shield and its image with the initial Hydra fallout as well.

That all said, I think they've tackled some pretty cool Marvel U concepts.  The LMDs are a neat concept, though in the comics Shield uses them vs. bad guys, and they're super helpful decoys for a variety of spy-guy needs.  I liked some of the initial Inhuman stuff, and the various super baddies they've managed to bring in "Madame Hydra, Crusher Creel, etc.  I'm still enjoying the show, just not nearly as much as the first few seasons.  Hopefully they wrap up the Hydra/LMD/Inhuman stuff this season and move on to something new quickly.

Thanks for posting this.  I think I have the lighter eyes version.  Any idea which came first?  I typically try to get the earlier version if I can since there's a better chance of finding the second one later on.

Great display and photos Rob!  I still haven't set my loose collection back up, but am going to map to some of this over the Summer.

If you want the stand, but not the figure, I might be your Huckleberry. 

Someone school me please if need be, but aren't they running new production on Han and R2 now?

Yeah, don't they all need to run through production to be on the new cards?  If anything I would think that you'd short pack the items already in another package versus producing twice as many of them.  If they have to produce Han and R2 anyway, I would think shorter runs would hurt the profit per item on these.  But of course that argument is all based on logic and common sense.
