Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard Figure
(HASBRO/Approx. Retail Price: $14.99/Available exclusively at Shared Fan: Spring 2019)**

** this is straight from the Hasbro Press Release - I'm not 100% sure yet what "Shared Fan" means...  other than it means he's exclusive and a few $$ more that the basic TVC line.

Star Wars: The Black Series 6-inch General Grievous Figure
(HASBRO/Approx. Retail Price: $29.99/Available: Spring 2019)

Star Wars: The Black Series 6-inch Obi-Wan Kenobi (Clone Trooper Armor) Figure

I gave up on trying the find the Han/Chewie & Rebolt/Hound 2-packs and just ordered them off of -

I've been checking each morning since Pete's post and found them back in stock this AM.   Glad to have these finally checked off my list (but mostly glad that I don't have to go to Walamrt anymore for a while  :P).

Aside from the usual "i wish they weren't lowPOA" stuff, I think they look good.  I really like that new Bucket droid character.  Not sure why an astromech needs a helmet, but it's fun.  Hope the funky alien mechanic (Neeku) and the Rodian pilot (Hype Fazon) get figures too.

I guess these Stormtrooper officers get some pretty slick armor - Pyre's is gold, Phasma has chrome.

At this point, it's only a matter of time before the First Order Stormtroopers get the multi-color Clone Trooper treatment too.  501st Legion must still be out there somewhere :P

Hasbro is hosting collector and media breakfasts this AM and there are a few new pics floating around - 6" General Grievous and 6" Obi-Wan in Clone Armor.

Sounds like there will be some other stuff revealed along the next few days too...

I was shocked these were just sitting there in-stock and ready to ship.

Nice! I wish I would have caught them there as I'm sick of looking for them as well... Walmart here in MN sucks balls.

Is anyone finding these anywhere because I havenít seen any postings of it.

It was on Yakface last weekend and I saw a few tweets about Walmart finds as well... seems like it's hit or miss across the USA still though.

I know most of us already have some form of it, but how long has it been since we got a version of Luke's X-Wing?

...I wouldn't mind seeing this get an update/re-do at some point.

*checks IP address to make sure Jesse hasn't gotten hold of Brian's log-in info*

Brian, have you seen the DeAgostini 1:18 scale X-Wing model.  Someone I know was brave enough to plunk down the money to buy into this model.  Looks to be the most amazing 1:18 X-Wing yet with moving parts and lights and sounds.

Isn't it technically some third party toy company making the Disney exclusive stuff using Hasbro molds?

At the start, yes it was Disney using Hasbro's molds/factory agreements.  Now though, Disney is making them themselves with their own product development teams, molds and factories.

The original Droid Factory wave was Disney essentially sub-licensing the BAD molds from Hasbro.  For the second wave of BAD (when the wires were dropped), that was Disney creating their own molds using the BAD as a starting point (but making them more cost effective by cutting out the leg wires and things).

Neither Disney nor Hasbro have gotten into the details of how Disney is able to create 3.75" scale toys for sale in the parks (either outside Hasbro's license or with Hasbro's permission or sub-license agreement) but obviously they have some sort of agreement in place because Hasbro hasn't sued Disney yet for infringement. :P

That paint job is terrible IMHO.

It seems more orange and black than brown and weathered for some reason.

For $100, it seems like a pretty nice set.  Some fun features and a larger size than the previous Hasbro crawler.  I'm sure I'll end up buying one but no rush at this point.
