I like that Ello Assy is there but should be dead.  He is kinda too cool to let him go.

That's his twin brother, Kaul's Moutique.

That picture is hilarious.  "Everyone come say goodbye!  There goes whats-her-name!"

Gotta say I lol'd at that.

Also, let's send what's-her-name to find the most important person in the Galaxy instead of, oh I dunno... sending his sister?

138
Meh.

Yep.  **** him (and that's coming from a Pats fan).

Yeah... I don't like to speak ill of the dead, but no great loss here (and that's coming from a UF grad).

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2017 Hasbro Star Wars Fan Figure Vote

Just heard that the EU figure of choice is Ben Skywalker and claims of ballot stuffing!

I'd believe it.  There's no way there's some sort of fan outcry for a Ben Skywalker action figure.

Is R-3DO something they made up or is he from somewhere in some movie or tv-show or comic or book or whatever?

Officially, he is from TFA.  He is from the "let's all wave bye-bye to Rey" at the end, standing right next to Leia.

Ha.  Awesome... that's better than out of thin air I suppose.  Here's a slightly larger version of the image:

I sent in my Sim Aloo vote just now... as awesome as Tzizvvt would be, and as much as I'd love that, I just have too big a soft spot for the vintage line and always thought Sim Aloo was super creepy and awesome when I was little.

Are all of the 500 droids that were announced in the last few days going to be available on the App?  Everything but the build-a-protocol-droid stuff I mean...

As for R-3DO, I managed to order one just now.  The only other thing I see in the App is the 4-pack, but it's not available at the moment.  Is R-3DO something they made up or is he from somewhere in some movie or tv-show or comic or book or whatever?

and one of the asian sellers ended up selling TFA Stormtrooper in sets of 5 for $30 recently. My fingers are crossed that we'll see that for both the DeathTrooper and Scariff trooper at some point in quantity.

Damn, I wish I'd have seen that one.  You don't know which one it was by chance?

145
Yeah, fingers crossed that the Scarif Shore Trooper gets TVC carded treatment so I can finally get my dang hands on a nice sized squad!

Don't worry, the moment I coughed up $30 for one, it became total destiny that they'd be everywhere eventually.

I don't want to throw away the vote, but Tonnika Sisters would be awesome.  Maybe with Disney owning the thing now there could be some movement on that?  I know we've heard the weird denials over the years, and I know it's just an action figure, but I still don't understand how there is any possible legal hang up and I haven't heard a decent explanation for it.  Christine Hewett has passed away, Angela Staines hasn't acted since Star Wars - her entire acting resume is two uncredited rolls, one being Star Wars and the other being "native dancer" in Queen Kong in 1976.  I don't think I've ever heard of an instance of an actor owning the likeness to a character, especially a two-shot background piece of nothing like this.  So while I don't mean to be all conspiratorial, this one never ever added up for me and every year or two I still feel like bringing it up and calling B.S. in hopes that some better explanation has surfaced.

With that out of the way... There isn't really a PT character I feel I need to have, to me this is all about letting Hasbro know there's still collector interest in the OT.  I also don't see these fan polls as the place to ask for some iconic main character that there's a better chance Hasbro will get around to making anyway.

So, while I'd be perfectly happy with any unmade OT figure like Tzizvvt, what I really want is a 3-pack of the remaining dignitaries, my top is going to be Sim Aloo.



Looking through my vintage figures, is he the absolute last vintage figure that hasn't been made at this point?

This needs to happen.




147
Yes.   No modern Sim Aloo after 22 years is criminal.

These are at a very minimum going to cost what the Black Series costs.

149
I'm really excited to hear this. 

I hope the lineup is bigger than I expect it to be, and I hope this replaces the Walmart Black Series 3.75" completely.

150
Good God, this droid stuff went from 0 to 60 this week.

This is going to be expensive.
