The Vintage Collection / Re: 2017 Hasbro Star Wars Fan Figure Vote
« on: April 29, 2017, 02:00 PM »
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.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Deluxe 2-Packs

We're getting down to the end of April... other than this 2-pack and wave 4, there's nothing planned for the next five months right?

I'm starting to assume that TFA Luke we've all been waiting for is just going to be a TLJ Luke, which is crazy to me.

Nope, it's Marvel season, and even the GOTG figures have come and gone from retail. So that leaves the single case of Spidey Homecoming figures every store will get and then we're done until Force Friday.

R2 is in the first wave, but short-packed from what I've read.

Thanks for confirming.  Well, that makes a lot of sense.  With most of the other figures out in black boxes recently, why not short pack the R2?   ::)

Rumor is it's because Leia, Luke and Obi-Wan are already in production due to the recent Black Series releases, whereas Han and R2 have been out of production for 3-4 years now.

I feel like the Star Wars Action News/Rebel Force Radio list is a good way to measure the "casual" votes, since that podcast is listened to by a lot of people who wouldn't necessarily post on collector sites. Hence every vote going towards figures we've already gotten, or are locks to get.

I've seen these twice, and it's typically the only Hasbro Star Wars item in stock at my local WMs. But has anyone actually picked one up? I'm still interested in seeing if they fixed the leg issues.

Yep. They seem to be treating it like any other game. You have to set up an account in order to preorder and pay the minimum $5, but they'll ship it to the store you preorder from and you pick it up when it comes in.

I was able to preorder this in store today

I stopped by my local Gamestop after work and inquired about the figure. They had no clue what I was talking about, and only knew about the BF2 TIE Pilot. I pulled up the listing on their website, but it wasn't even listed in Gamestop's computer. They told me "it might be some online only thing" and to try that, but the website says unavailable.
