Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILER FREE)
« on: May 4, 2017, 10:23 AM »
I imported the Japanese Blu-Ray of Rogue One for the SH Figuarts Death Trooper, and decided to throw together an album of all the goodies it comes with

Someone on Reddit bought one or two of these and gave them a recommendation... for the stands. Apparently these come with a few pegs, which fit regular 3.75 inch figures (might have to trim the length of some since they'll stick out too far on some figures), and you can place them in various points on the base. So once these hit clearance they might be worth it for the bases, but otherwise the figures are a waste of money and resources, and are made even worse with the awful paint apps.

Got Stormie and R5/R2 in the mail today...

Do yourself a favor and order these.  Dare I say, skip getting R2 from Hasbro, get this one.  It looks pretty in-scale to me to the Hasbro figures, and the crispness and details are just vastly superior even if all you do is apply the stickers after you snap the kit together.

I've been debating doing just this in lieu of the Gamestop R5 fiasco... plus these figures are much more in scale with 6 inch figures than Hasbro figures are.

I know this thread is about vehicle kits, but has anyone ever ordered any of the 6 inch scale figure model kits? I know they've done mostly troopers and droids, but the Hasbro fiasco trying to get a R2-D2 and R5-D4 has left me considering getting the R2/R5 model kit. They cost about the same as one Hasbro figure, and apparently are really good/cheap for testing out custom paint for weathering, much like the model vehicles.

Edit: Nevermind, found the other thread as soon as I posted this. To stay on topic, these models are very tempting.

West Coasters on Reddit have had lots of success finding Wave 2 at Walgreens. It appears this wave is only hitting California and Washington at the moment.

Eadu Cassian is currently down to $3.97 on Amazon, which I guess makes it King of the Pegwarmers. Unmasked Kylo is currently hovering around $8. Jedha Jyn at $12.

Found Luke, Obi-Wan and Leia at TRU today and grabbed the Leia for the new headsculpt.

Also got another Legacy Pack since I thought it was the variant Vader, but no, now I have 2 Black Eye Vaders. Going to be returning that one tomorrow.

What the hell is Doctor Aphra??!?

New comic character. She's in the Darth Vader series and now has a series of her own.

I voted Aphra... might as well get a new figure out of this. Ahsoka and Palpatine, meh, and I even want a decent OT Emperor figure. Sorry to the OT aliens.

Got a mailer yesterday hyping the May 4th events, lasting from May 4 to May 7:

- Free R2-D2 build-a-figure with $50+ purchase (while supplies last)
- Double VIP Points on every Star Wars purchase (no set amount)
- UCS Snowspeeder officially available for sale

Edit: These are at the LEGO Store and

Dorkside is selling the display on its own for $8.99

Heh, I saw my first Vintage figures, Luke and Obi-Wan, at a Walgreens tonight.

My Legacy Pack with Vader also arrived from Amazon today!

I've heard May 1 or May 4 as dates Walmart is setting stuff out. But it's Walmart, where the May 4 stuff last year (4 inch Phasma/Han/Leia) didn't get stocked here until January.

I wonder if Shia LaBeouf is returning? :D

And I hope Harrison Ford doesn't try to land any planes between now and then.
