Solo / Re: Solo Store Finds and Recent Purchases

My wave 2 arrived from HTS. Moloch's bubble was a bit crushed, luckily I found nicer one at Target a few days ago.

Enjoying my 3.75" version. How he's cool enough in the movie to justify the purchase.

Justified.


I haven't opened my 3.75" version yet, but do either versions have a removable helmet?

Definitely not the 3.75".

Found a 4-LOM on the selves today at Target. Nice check him/it off the Bounty Hunters check-list.

My guess is we'll see these in the next few weeks. Movie is out soon enough and I believe the first wave is selling well enough.

Too bad the Vader/probe droid wasn't re-released. This assortment would have sold well for sure.

Solo / Re: Solo 3.75" Basic Figures
« on: May 6, 2018, 02:55 PM »
Did a little looking around at the figures and discovered that K 2SO is a very slight re-paint; the orange shoulder markings are more yellowish and for some reason, some of the sculpting details seem crisper. Definitely enough for me to buy another for opening.

I couldn't image those sellers not having a discount. Otherwise, why bother?

I'm lucky enough that one of my trading buddies takes care of a couple of us with his discount.

Obviously, I was confusing the Black series Wampa with previous 3.75 inch releases. I do find it curious that we got such a nicely articulated creature figure in the 5 POA line, but I''m not complaining. It's great figure.

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2018 Vintage Collection Wave 2

Basic on my info, this is how wave 2 is rounding out:

1x NEW! Han Solo (Solo: A Star Wars Story)
1x NEW! Enfys Nest (Solo: A Star Wars Story)
1x NEW! Combat Assault Tank Driver (Rogue One)
1x Death Trooper (Rogue One)
1x Rey (The Force Awakens)
1x Supreme Leader Snoke  (The Last Jedi)
1x First Order Stormtrooper (The Force Awakens)
1x Kylo Ren (The Force Awakens)

I keep going back and forth over this case assortment and how it reflects Hasbro's logic in moving forward with the Vintage line. Obviously one needs a crystal ball to ideally plan these things out, but I wonder how much of this assortment is collector based vs boys toys marketing based.

Although for me personally, buying this assortment by the case doesn't make sense, not even one case as I'll have 3 figures I can't do anything with, the more I look at it, the more it might be a good retail assortment. Setting aside the three new figures, the Deathtrooper is a no-brainer for vintage treatment. Snoke makes sense as a carry-forward. That leaves Rey, Kylo and FO Stormtrooper. The more I think about it, these aren't bad as Stormtroopers always seem to do well and Kylo tends to not hang around for too long either.

In the end, as I put in down on paper, this is not a horrible assortment. Hope Hasbro's got it right and that we won't see much peg clogging. I haven't been this excited for the hobby in years. I love it.

I dunno what's going on with WM, but two of them in my area have shrunk the SW section leaving no space allocation to either Black series or Vintage.

Is this Wampa new? I'm having trouble recalling the last one we got in 3.75 inch form. Or is this basically a 3.75 inch version of the black series Wampa?

Ended up grading the Swoop bike and Luke/Wampa. Gotta admit that I like the look of the Swoop bike set. It's looking like an opener for me.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Vintage Collection Rumors

Anyone know if the rumors about Disney stopping all Slave Leia merchandise it true?

That would be baffling. I highly doubt it.

However, I will text a friend who can confirm. Stand by..

Seen them all in store now, except for the Hoth trooper. Lots of sequel trilogy Stormtroopers out there.
