Do you think Ben Skywalker might be DQed just for the fact the the "casual" fan might confuse him with Ben Solo?

TONNIKA SISTERS!



I'd actually love to get some of the vintage cantina aliens like a Hammerhead or Blue Snaggletooth.  Sim is a good pick, but I'm sending in my vote for Tzizvvt, so we can get them both on the list.  I like him in a Cantina display more than just upgrading my other dignitaries.

I hope all these knobs speak with their wallets and buy all the soon to be peg warming Jaina Solo figures when they're released.   ::)

I will be buying up multiples of Jaina.  My son and I are reading the young jedi knights stories right now and he loves them, even knowing that they aren't part of the "real" storyline anymore. 

I'm not really in the "stick it to Disney" crowd as I like most of what they're doing and we wouldn't have awesome things like Rogue One or TFA without their involvement. That said, I think Disney equally stuck it to the EU crowd by merging Ben Skywalker and Jacen Solo into one person and basically converting the Imperial Remnant into the First Order.   If it's going to be pretty much the same thing, why not just call it what it was originally called to appease some of the EU fans?  When people change the source material for good reason, I've got no issues with that, but when they change it around just to "make it their own" it gets pretty irritating no matter how you spin it.  I'm looking at you Black Johnny Storm.

Who ARE these people and why can't we get the good guys to counter-hack them?

I want to see 1000000 last minute votes for a Gonk droid or something.

Sadly I think our hobby is full with more of them than normal people.

It's eaier to always be pissed off at Disney, Hasbro, and Star Wars in general than it is to just find something to be happy about.  The glass of blue milk is always half empty, never half full, when it comes to a Star Wars fan.

I like old EU, but want some OT obscurity more.  It's a shame but the hobby is full of unhappy people who don't want to find something to be happy about now.  People who just enjoy the ride are the minority.

Are the votes for Aphra legit? I just picked up a 6" version
I'm daring to do the impossible: Not hating Hasbro for everything they do.

Kind of surprised to see just how many people voted for Pong Krell.  How he didn't make it into the CLONE WARS animated figure line is still a mystery to me.

If I remember right, Hasbro said in one of the Q&As that he was going to be released (probably as an exclusive). But then the line (and show) got cancel.

My main takeaway from this?

There are way too many Star Wars nerd sites out there.

The last for JTA is Admiral Piett.

Too many geek sites?  That list doesn't have Yakface or Jedi Defender yet.
