Yeah, the astromech would be a bummer without the wire legs, but the others are very welcome additions. Now onto hoping they're better distributed on the west coast...

So, what's the deal? Did this wave get swapped with 5? I've seen no hint of it around.

Somehow I managed to pre-order the other day when she went up. Hoping not to have my order canceled this time.

I was shocked when I heard that Asty was even in the running for this line -

Could be worse. Could be Snap.  ;)

I kind of agree though. Han is a must along side Phasma.

My theory is that Zuvio was in this wave, but once Hasbro realized that nobody cared about a character that wasn't even in the film, they had to triple production to make people care. Thus the delay.

The BMF Falcon can't be rerelease D because it would cost "hundreds more" to make today than back when they did. So no rerelease with TFA Falcon. How said it could cost $500 or $600 if rerelease do.

Why such a sharp increase in so little time? I curious as to the economics behind this. This also makes me very sad in that it sounds like all the high quality vehicles Hasbro was producing just a few years ago (BAT AT, TIE Interceptor/Fighters with updated cockpit, proper scale X-wings,) that I loved, are gone forever or would cost triple the price now.

If they bring it back it would be a card style but there's discussion about if they would be 5 POA or highly articulated.

Wow. I can hardly believe they would seriously consider 5 POA on vintage cards. The only way that would work for me is if they were reproductions of the actual vintage line.

I really dislike the direction the SW brand is going in general. There's not enough product being produced that's holding my interest as a collector.

I'm wondering if the repacks could branch out to some more desirable ones.

Would love to the see the Royal Guard in that red and black box.

It's interesting that there was really only one TFA reveal, C3PO. Seems like the main thrust of all TFA figure product is already past it's peak which pretty fast.

Totally agree about the Leia, seems almost inconceivable that after all these years and technical advances that they can still get her face sculpt wrong.


From what you're saying, both R5-X3 and R0-4LO go with the TFA  figures... that's where I'll put them.

It took me my third viewing to find R5X3 and by then I had to dig him out of my TPM box to re-locate him.

I picked up the brown helmet version of the Resistance Trooper today.  The figure itself is pretty cool.  But is it me, or do the resistance uniforms look a bit uninspired compared to some of the Rebel uniforms of the OT.

The entire costume design of the resistance was uninspired. Looks like everything was made with felt.

Wave 3 is finally showing up on-line, but for some reason at more than $20 a pop. I hear Rey was more than $30. And this was through Walmart, not Toy wiz.

Well, after a concerted effort searching eBay once a day, I was able to acquire the final pieces to complete the original 2012 releases. I don't have all complete droids, mind you, but I have all domes, bodies and legs. It can be done! And it wasn't horribly expensive.

Hopefully I can get to Disneyland enough to get all the new ones now.

It would seem to me that these have sold more than solidly enough to justify continuing the line. I just hope both Walmart and Hasbro can see the very strong desire for premium figures and increase subsequent production runs.

Didn't even know there was a Kylo Ren version. Will keep an eye out.

EDIT: Oh, I thought an exclusive TRU version was being mentioned there. As far as I can find, there are only two TRU exclusives - Poe and Phasma.

I found the TRU exclusive Armor-up Poe. I had failed to notice that one was even out there to be had.

I found the Wave 5 6" and there's a lot of reports of this wave hitting heavy. Was the same with wave 3. But no sign of wave 4. How very odd.
