Other Collectibles / Re: BB-8 App Enabled Droid by Sphero

If I recall you need the app to enable the Force Band, but once you get it set up, synched, etc., you can just use the Force Band to control BB-8.

Question for those who have the Force Band...do you still need to run the app on your phone or does it control BB-8 independently?

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2017
« Last post by Darby on Today at 01:17 PM »
It's always discouraging to see so little emphasis on the 3.75 line, and I agree it is no longer the focus at Hasbro. But every year we say this is the end and we haven't come to it yet. The Han and Boba Fett reveals in the showroom are indicators the 5 POA line is continuing through TLJ. I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing a vintage 40th line this fall that is probably 5 POA. Pretty sure it will be focused mostly on TLJ but we'll get some classic stuff too. I'd prefer it went back to the main focus, but that ship has sailed I think.  :(

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 8

I also have yet to see the Scarif Trooper or Cassian. Not too worried since everything HTF last year has come around again, but then you never know. I have no interest in any of this next group. Good for some folks, but nothing compelling for me.

I wouldn't mind a couple of Tuskens and a few sandtroopers.  I might pick up a Ponda Baba since I never saw him at retwil, but do not need the Boba Fett, unless it comes with the MaQuarrie concept helmet.

Jesse, I hope you are wrong about the Scarif Trooper...I've only seen one at retail and hope to get more.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2017

I was checking out the presentation live via Twitter yesterday.  And I texted a friend who was there and asked "Did we just witness the death of the 3.75" figure line?"  The only 3.75" figures that got mentioned in the presentation were the wave of 3.75" Black Series WalMart exclusives.  Granted, there were more 3.75" figures in the showroom.  But with the exception of 3 figures it was all stuff we had seen before.

I take this as us being in a period of transition.  The focus of the Hasbro line has been gradually shifting ever since they introduced the 6" figure line.  It's taken time, but it is happening.  The original Kenner line kicked off with that Early Bird assortment of 3.75" figures, and it seems symbolic that maybe Hasbro is using that same theme to shift the focus now.

I get the sense that the 3.75" figure system will continue to be offered for older "legacy" collectors who are still hanging on.  But I think the writing may be on the wall that this is getting gradually phased out.  We do still have some things incoming in the 3.75" line:  I still haven't seen wave 3 of the ROGUE ONE line, and I don't think a lot of other collectors have, either.  Wave 4 is still incoming.  There's the 3.75" Black Series line, but that's very limited in scope and even more limited in new sculpts.

Major wish granted this weekend with McF reveal of an upcoming TV Negan/Glenn 2-pack.  ;D ;D

Also TV Sasha coming to Walmart. So happy they relented on killing off the 5" TV line.

Super7 had a few nice reveals this weekend...Toxic Avenger figures, MOTU figures, Planet of the Apes, and best of all (to me) Shogun Warriors in 3&3/4"!!!

Wave 1 is kind of annoying.  At least from the standpoint of someone who's been collecting the 6" Black Series from the start.  Granted, this move seems intended to rope in carded collectors, and that's based purely on the packaging.

It does also help people who got in on the line a little late if they want to build up their own collection without paying some insane secondary market prices.  I'm tempted to pick up another R2-D2.  And if there's some significant improvement with the Leia face sculpt I may pick up that one.
