Tamashii's website now shows the Royal Guard and Sandtrooper figures.

They both look incredible!

Yeah, I think Vader was originally supposed to come out in December of 2014 and there's still no sign of him.

Wow, you've got some beautiful displays.  Just amazing!

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.

R2 is the only Hasbro 6" figure I'm missing from my OT collection, so this could be a great way to go.  The aftermarket prices for R2 are ridiculous right now.

edit -- The Bandai 1/12 version comes with a ton of accessories too, I'm seriously considering this...

This just may be one of the greatest pieces I have -- the classic Vader carry case signed by James Earl Jones.  I won it in a raffle to support a member on another forum.  I couldn't be happier to add this to my Vader collection.

Wow, great pics!  You've got a lot of stuff in there, but it's all nicely displayed to enjoy. 

I NEED one of these.  ;D

Congrats on that Droid Factory, that's pretty cool.

I recently added a 4th boxed Vader's TIE Fighter to my focus.  They're all open, but I love how they display together.

I've also been slowly building my loose 12" figure collection, I grabbed a Stormtrooper, C-3PO, and Han -- all complete.  Getting closer to completing the set!

IG-88 will be the highlight of this wave for me.

I have to agree.  I'm only collecting the OT with 6" figures, so Cody is out, but I'm not sure I need another Leia.  Although she does make sense for those wanting to complete the Jabba scene in a different way.

I'm surprised by the lack of interest in the Emperor, to me he's a must have.  I'll admit the way the hood is tacked onto his robe is a little strange, but other than that I think it's a great looking figure.

I'm sure some of these are inevitable, but these are my personal top 10:

1. Snowtrooper
2. AT-AT Driver
3. Emperor's Guard
4. Tarkin
5. Gamorrean Guard
6. Obi-Wan ANH
7. Lando ESB
8. Tusken Raider
9. Luke ANH
10. Leia ANH

Honourable mentions:

Ree Yees
Yak Face

The hockey rink on the bottom floor.

I think the hockey rink is on the command level and the penalty box is the trash compactor...

Ha!  Nice!  ;D  No, there's no actual differences between the playsets themselves.



Uh, yeah, they're even starting to tempt me, who vowed not to deviate from 4" scale stuff...  But that?  Holy ****.

If Hasbro wanted to bump figure prices to $15 for the 4" line, I'd be giddy to see them go this route.  Multiple scene-specific heads, hands, hyper articulated, crisp paint apps...  I'd pay 50% more for figures for that kinda stuff.

And these shame their 6" line, top to bottom.

Thanks for posting that JJ, Luke looks pretty impressive, especially posed against Vader on that background.  Tempting...

I actually picked this up a couple weeks ago, it was a great way to end 2014.  A Canadian boxed Death Star, I certainly never expected to own this!  It was only missing the rope, but I lucked out and already tracked one down.

The preorder came up at HLJ for Vader and the Stormtrooper, but they're already pre-sold out!  I'm pissed I missed them.  Hopefully the BBTS prices aren't too ugly, it's way cheaper for me to buy from Japan because the Canadian dollar is much stronger against the Yen than the US dollar.
