The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" Basic Figure Line

It just seems totally dumb to me that this clunky little guy could fly for one movie

Two movies - he used the leg rockets in ROTS to set the SBDs on fire on Grievous' ship. ;)

At one point after ROTS, LFL Holocron dudes tried to say "the warranty expired" or "he broke them after the Clone Wars" to explain it away.  I'm sure there will be a Marvel comic about it someday...

New Orange Wave 2 pics, thanks to @ImpHolocron.  Glad to see R2's got his booster rockets back. Also HASCON panel confirms that Ep8 General Leia will indeed be in Orange Wave 2.

I don't know if Walgreen's has a choice of what they take, or if they're only allowed to take variations on existing figures.  It would be nice to see them get all new exclusives (like GameStop, Target, etc.).

I have heard from a few sources that Walgreens prefers OT figures, which makes it harder for them to snag new figures like other stores since most "new" new 6" exclusives are from new media/movies.

Early on, I read a press release from Walgreens or Hasbro that seemed to indicate the strategy was to focus on OT figures/characters.  That way, they'd attract the attention of the older Star Wars fans and it would be an opportunity to get them into stores to try to capture our pharmacy business as we age into more health problems (and more prescriptions to go with them).

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: TRU 6" Rey with Crait Base
« on: September 8, 2017, 12:58 PM »
Does anyone know if the figure itself is any different between the "With base" releases and the standard versions?

Did you even look at the pics? :P ;D



Yes, they are different.  The "with Crait base" figure has the fancier paint deco/aps and it has premium soft goods for the robe/wrap (and possibly skirt under them).  Plus the die-cast accessories.

Better paint aps, more soft goods, and die cast accessories are the big difference on the Luke and Kylo "with base" sets too. Each seems to have a bonus accessory too that the single release doesn't (saber hilt for Rey, extra hand for Luke, Helmet for Kylo).

Wait - so the figure we are getting as a one-off purchase is also going to be in the Orange Wave 2 case? What the heck is the point of that?!?!

It sounds like Luke and Leia (and a few of the other TLJ figures) will be shipping in solid-case packs as well as the assortments to ensure enough of them get to buyers... so the point is to get her pre-order up early and help try to avoid the #wheresleia or #wheresluke social media buzz. ;)
