Really looking forward to that Starkiller Han figure...   probably because it could be the last SA 3.75" Han they make until the Han stand-alone flick hits.   :-\

Never really thought about that, but you're right Jeff. Kind of sad to think about really. Unless they do a SA Han Solo in his primary outfit from TFA (which would be great), this could be the last SA, 3.75", Harrison Ford Solo we see.

Good points, we have gotten things pretty well covered from TFA, aside from Maz's place aliens (although it is tough to see many of them). I like Jeff's suggestions, and I'm actually indifferent on getting Snoke yet but just mentioned him because he is a significant character. I would like to see Luke and Leia though. I know Luke was barely in the movie, but I really liked his look and recent rumors point to him possibly having a different costume in VIII. Plus, it's Luke 🙂.

I guess I was more concerned about the line in general, and since it is technically known as a TFA line at this point, I went there. I guess a break is ok with me too, since I have enough other stuff to buy/save for, just wondering if we were going to go 4 months without any new figures.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors

So with the recent Black Series rumors from JediNews breaking down the Force Friday lineups, it looks like figures like Leia, Revan, Snowtrooper, etc. are being held until then. Does that mean that we are on a break with this line until then? I just got shipping notice for the Luke, Ahsoka, Kanan wave, so are things on a four month break now?

Just going through the photos from Toy Fair and the lists of upcoming things, are we in for a summer dry spell? Outside of the handful of Rebels figures shown (and the Black Series exclusives) I don't think we know of anything else due before Rogue One's Force Friday. That would seem to mean that the Takodana Encounter pack,  and any exclusives, might be it until September?  It really boggles the mind how Hasbro has really dropped the ball on communication and announcements of upcoming product. Heck we have seen boxed and loose pictures of the next WalMart exclusive Black Series wave without them being officially announced. Seems like it would be a good time to get another couple waves of TFA figures out there (Luke, Leia, Snoke, etc.), since it is only one of the biggest movies of all time.

Nice collection, they sure look nice all stacked together like that. I'm slowly getting more and more into these as well. I've always picked some up here or there, primarily Star Wars and Marvel, but really have been helping our daughter pick up her favorites across the various licensees. They seem to do about everything (aside from Indiana Jones oddly enough). With TFA I've been sticking with characters from the OT like Han/Chewie, and any included in Smugglers Bounty. I find myself now wanting to get more OT ones. It is a slippery slope.

I received the Unkar, FN-2187, Rex wave from BBTS today, so I guess I'm caught up for now? I was looking to see what else was coming up (aside from the Takodana pack), and I didn't see any other TFA figures on the horizon really. There are those Rebels figures announced at Toy Fair, but those aren't up for preorder yet even. It is just surprising they aren't hitting TFA harder with the movie being such a hit.

Also, although we are getting more in the 6" Black Series line, we really aren't seeing much for classic characters these days. Not unexpected, but I do wonder how much we will see going forward too. It is a good thing we had such an amazing run before the new movies started and the switch to 5 POA, so luckily there wasn't a whole lot left to do.

Really enjoyed the finale, particularly the Ahsoka/Vader showdown. There was a lot of stuff going on that really changes things for the characters as well. If you haven't already read it, there is a nice interview with Dave Filoni at where he details a lot of what happened. It sounds as if Ahsoka's end was left intentionally ambiguous, whether she was indeed walking into a cave at the end, or that was her walking into "the force". Either way, sounds as if we won't be seeing her for a bit as focus shifts back to the Rebels crew.

It definitely seems like reviews have been average at best. We are going this weekend, and I'm looking forward to seeing it, but the reviews I've read seem to highlight some of my biggest fears about this movie and DC's "universe". Top of the list: no fun. Most of the reviews I've seen, while highlighting some high parts, but consistently mention that it isn't "fun". I'll admit that I've grown up a Marvel fan, but enjoy DC as well and want them to make good movies as well, but it just seems like they are so insistent on being "not Marvel" that they actively avoid good ideas.

To me, superhero movies -with few exceptions- should be fun and uplifting. It is escapism after all, and people shouldn't walk out of a Justice League movie feeling depressed. I've also seen it mentioned that when the Trinity does unite in BVS, it is sort of underwhelming because there isn't any history between the characters. Which is why Marvel built their way up to Avengers, Civil War, etc. I feel like DC doesn't want to wait that long so they are pushing it all into one movie. One other thing sort of unrelated to this that irritates me is their decision to not cross over their TV/movie properties. The Flash is probably my favorite show these days and so well done, and i would love to see that version of the character cross over to the movies (not to mention other characters like Arrow, Canary, Atom, etc.) Another example of having a "Marvel did it, so we won't" attitude.

That said, we have tickets for Saturday, and I am looking forward to seeing it. Hopefully my fears are unfounded and it's a great time.

Excited that we are getting more of these. Honestly, prior to getting the earlier waves, I started to think that having all 5 POA wasn't so bad. After seeing the Force Awakens characters, it reminded me of what Hasbro is capable of. I like the character choices, but agree that Leia could have been 5 POA. Happy to have the Han, but hope we get the regular version in this form soon too. Still wish they weren't WalMart exclusives, I wouldn't have this line if not for help from Pete_Fett.

So excited for this. The movie itself looks great, but Spidey joining the MCU is the cherry on top. Sort of enjoying having the one two punch of Star Wars at Christmas and Marvel in the summer every year.

I know some will be a little hesitant after the last movie, but count me in. The Indy movies have been second only to Star Wars my whole life, so I'm down for more. It will be interesting to see if Lucas will be involved. I remember at one time Spielberg saying he wouldn't do it without him, but maybe that has changed. Either way, exciting news. Also, hopefully more toys😊

I can't believe I didn't post about this sooner, but is anyone planning on collecting the new Thundercats line from Mattel? It looks pretty great, just like the MOTU Classics. I'd like to get a few, but have a feeling it will be pretty tough without a sub, and I can't really do that anymore. That said, it would be nice to get the main characters.

Is anyone here picking up the new "Filmation" line of MOTU figures? I had hoped to get the He-Man at least, but missed it when it went on sale Monday. I kind of dig the figures, but can't really do the whole subscription thing anymore.

As someone who greatly admires, but could never afford, the Hot Toys figures, I'm interested in these. I realize it won't have that level of detail, etc., but if they are good for the price I could see picking some up. I would likely be in for the Spidey if nothing else.
