The Vintage Collection / Re: Kmart Imperial Scanning Crew 2-Pack

It's the guy Luke or Han or Chewbacca murdered!

Before they returned to murder all the Stormtroopers on the Death Star!  ;)

Are there any close-up pics of the carbonite block and the interior? It looks like it's darker than the Clone Wars version.

I definitely ordered this at $69, which is a reasonable price for this. Now I'm officially psyched.

These are ******* awful.

That's awesome! Congratulations!

I have to say, I really like NECA as a company. I find them to be a great bunch of guys.

I kinda hope sets like the TRU pilots expand to Rebel Troopers that way.  Non-helmeted guys need love.  Some non-helmeted Impy's would be fine too, for sure.

^ This.

TRU has had what seems like a lot of pilot sets in recent memory.  I think we need to see an expansion into more generic army builders - in the realm of ground troops. 

Rebel Forces
- Rebel Fleet Trooper (TVC, new head)
- Endor Rebel (TVC, new head)
- Mon Calamari Officer (TVC Ackbar, repaint)
- Rebel Marksman - NEW!

Imperial Forces
- Stormtrooper (Legacy Spacetrooper - Joe Johnston version)
- Death Star Trooper (TVC Imperial Navy Commander, gray paint)
- Imperial Officer (Needa sculpt, new head)
- Imperial Terror Trooper - NEW!

100% agree. We have way more pilots than ships for them to fly. Ground forces need some multipack love. And yes, I do mean SA figures...I'm definitely not into the 5-POA nightmare. Sure, figures like Dorme and Amidala don't need to be SA, but troops definitely do.

You know what?  If it's a new dude then I don't care who it is, I want him.  Yeah, there's 100 figures I'd rather have first, but it beats another Vader or Obi-Wan.

Practiced optimism my dear freinds!

Only Obi-Wans for you!  :-*

Man, I would happy with them just rereleasing thie Hoth Rebel Soldier.   :P


And regarding that Rebel medal-giver, I can honestly say that I never really noticed he was there. I mean, I know someone was handing medals to Leia, or Dodonna, but he's so insignificant as to not qualify a $10 purchase.

Honestly, after the comment from Hasbro about background Cantina aliens they're looking at producing this guy?

Found this. I'm almost tempted to get it for the Xeno skull, but then I'd have a Predator figure I didn't want. Still, I do need that skull...

I'd imagine it would! I wonder if this is the only two retailers carrying it?

If the 5-POA line is all we get (and I can't imagine what the **** is going through Pawlus' head that he actually wants that to happen), I'll gladly just stop collecting. I've had a really good run, but I have no interest in going backwards...and that is a complete backwards move.

Here is the future of Star Wars collecting.

more than I expected - I was thinking $50

Yeah, it's more than I was expecting too, but I figured it's not like Hasbro is giving us much to purchase this year...I preordered it.

Trophy case up for preorder at BBTS and Corner Store Comics.

I just really hope it's not a convention exclusive. But I would buy it anywhere as long as I can get it online.

Also in the works for later this year: Alien Queen.  :o

Possibly just wishful thinking on his part. I disagree with almost everything Adam Pawlus thinks about everything action figure related, other than that action figures should be able to sit. He's in opposition to the things that got me back into collecting. Waxing romantic about the 90's and the preposed/action feature happy Saga Collection figures is one thing...advocating a return to those times? No thanks.


If the Star Wars line goes back to preposed, 5-POA figures, I'll just big deal, I've had a good run.
