Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Got a fitty cent Taun-Taun (open belly) at a yard sale. No reigns, but hey at this age, I'm happy the saddle is there.

Only other vintage find this year was a Rebel Commando amidst some 80's JOE. He's an honorary Joe, I guess.

Here's the taun taun in a deleted scene from Rogue One...deleted for being out of focus.  :P

holo-chess monsters in holo and solid versions! (This will never happen)

sando aqua monster with claw'll retail for $599.

Proper sized dagobah dragonsnake and R2-D2.  (Or is a proper sized one still too big for this assortment?)

Those icky spider things from Rebels with...I dunno...Sith eyes Ezra? You know it would be Ezra or Kanan.

Looks like the "Tango Neon" isn't a TIE, but a Canto Bight Police Speeder with Police Officer.

I'm spoiler free on Ep8 so far, so I have no idea why we need the police on a Casino planet... maybe there's a heist?  Maybe it's just an EU "off-screen" thing?

It's a lead in to the next stand alone film "Ocean's THX-1138".

They did that thing where there's labels with pictures of people on the "walls". Not surprising...just silly.

Solid mid level there, the rest...hard to tell.

Strange i haven't seen that Leia in some time, but I also rarely go searching toy aisles anymore.

Still a lot of those poncho Jyns at Target.  She'll rival Pilot Padme as a female character army builder (you'd have to be familiar with chinese auctions to get that, lots of helmetless AOTC pilot Padmes were cheap for years.)

I found the last Jedha (snicker) set at Target for $7.48...even I couldn't pass it up. They had a few Rogue One figures and Force Awakens for $2.30-ish each, a lot of Jyns and resistance troopers. Surprisingly only one imp ground crew. No cheap 6" figures.

2 packs were still full price, but I already found them at Five;s weird the two packs are $5 and next to them are single figures for $5. Had Baze/Stormie, Maul/Seventh sista and Mouthy mcTurtle/Death Trooper. No First Odor Snowtrooper/Poes or furry guy/shore trooper.

TRU had the elite first order desert filth TIE for $13...i think, Shelf tag said so, but never could find a price checker to verify.  Wasn't that interested.

Wal-mart's clearance here sucks...the one that had anything. They still Sarco plank for $8. The rebel speeders for $15...been like that for months. One Rogue one 3 pack left at $10. Meh.

I paid $2 for most of what TFA figures I have and still found their worth questionable...but I'm far on the toy collecting burn-out side of the force now.

$3 for 6" sounds nuts. I might even be foolish enough to try that scale at that price.

So who is the praetor of the First Order? No one seems to know.

One of our local Walmarts dropped the price on RO figures to $2.50, so I cleaned them out. They only had 3  :P

Let me guess.

Imperial Ground Crew
Jyn Erso (Eadu)

As soon as Filoni announced season 4 was the last season, the management at Hasbro probably had a guy with a trash can go around and throw away everything Rebels in development. It's THE CLONE WARS immediate disengagement all over again.

For fans, I hope not...but I won't be surprised.

I remember Sam Shepard most from that movie Thunderheart. Most people will remember him as Chuck Yeager from The Right Stuff, which is funny because Shepard had a fear of flying.
Sam Shepard dead at 73

I remember in the vintage days how a lot of kids liked the Vader and C-3PO carrying cases.  They were cool ways of storing figures, and kind of doubled as display pieces.  I look at this BB-8 playset as something similar.

I had the Vader carrying case. It was nice...for a case. But I never figured a use for it beyond that. Hey, it's a giant Vader statue! Or space ship where everyone stands up straight inside. But it was never billed as anything other than a case.

I would think a star destroyer playset would change into a Star Destroyer (albeit not scaled to its interior). But I suppose characters are more marketable than vehicles.

Reminds me, at a yard sale I picked up some used ROTS "blockade runner" micro set that opens up to...Mustafar? WHAAAT? Those things are related...they are in the same movie!  :P

Where's the tentacled mind rape monster from Rogue One?

It's ironic that fans of toys can so completely lose sight of what makes them fun for kids.

Does something converting into a big version of something mostly unrelated to it make a fun toy? Maybe BB-8 rolls around a Star destroyer a lot in the film, but even if he does, what use is a large BB-8 in regards to other Hasbro toys?

I mean, if we'd have had a C-3PO bust that turned into the Emperor's throne room....we'd have appreciated the throne troom, maybe, but even as kids we would wonder what the point of the "giant" 3PO was.
