>>10725558New 4" Epic Heroes line announced for Star Wars. Prices between $10-$35 according to listings which include figures and vehicles.
>>10725557Just waiting on Ki Adi Mundi, and for >Anakin Skywalker (TPM) -FanCh>Padme (TPM)- FanCh>Jabba the Hutt & Salacious B. Crumb set>Force ghost 3 packTo go on sale. Otherwise interested in seeing Luke/Luuke 4 pack, and I can wait for new solid releases.
>>10725205Nothing wrong with getting the deluxe pack for the Massiff. Most people seemed to have done that. I hope they do more packs with creatures.
I don't know what color scheme I like more. I'm only missing one other B-1 right? I'm not sure what's been released.
>>10725957There's the Gaming Greats BF2 Heavy Gunner and the Gaming Greats Republic Commando. Other than that I think what you have are all that's been released for Black Series
>>10725963The one in your pic seems to be in stock at a gamestop nearby. Thanks Anon.
>>10725991We need Security, Pilots and Captain for TPM 25th line.
>>10726136We need all the Prequel droids. Every last variant. And I will buy them all
I still kind of like this figure but we're really due for a new go at it.
>>10726163I know what you mean anon.
>>10725560Would basic 3.75 have done better if it wasn’t sequel trilogy stuff? I feel like Star Wars stuff really sat on shelves when it was sequel trilogy stuff. I’d like to go back to having more options for vehicles
>>10725557I want an adult sith lord optional head.
>>10725560>>10726405why does anyone want 5PoA toys when fully articulated figures exist? They don't even have filler, like aliens, if you want to create a crowd of background characters.
>>10725560Is there a reason they make them look like shit?
>>10726173I would love a new one with all of the updated articulation, but we really need a new Farmboy Luke first.
No one claps to the beat like Lando.
>>10726405I honestly think it’s cause they made the shittiest sequel figures. There is toyetic stuff in those movies, but they didn’t really make it cause JJ being obsessed with secrecy about a movie that turned out to be a fucking remake anyway. On top of that it was like dollar store toy quality. The worst quality X-Wings, TIEs, and Falcons ever released at that point. I don’t like the sequels, but I’m of the mind that if they put out a line at the same level quality as the Revenge of the Sith figures, shit even the Phantom Menace figures, it would have been a success. The movie is still is the biggest movie in the US of all time. Even Avengers Endgame didn’t beat it domestically. And I know the consensus among people who post on internet forums was mixed, but normal fucking people generally liked the movie. Normies didn’t sour on them til Last Jedi. TFA and Rogue One still maintained a ton of audience good will. They had this great opportunity, but just made a shitty toyline due to incompetence from both Hasbro and Lucasfilm.
>>10726548Well yeah cause he’s the only black guy in the galaxy.
>>10726523I didn’t mind the basic vehicles I could use more vehicles if they look okay
>>10726548Who has the most "If only you knew how bad things were" face?
>>10726563To me, it's Han. He looks real done with this shit. Which makes for maximum accuracy with ROTJ Harrison Ford at least.
>>10725560>5POAIt's already dead, hope the vehicle is nice though so I can get one for my guys.
>>10726547>but we really need a new Farmboy Luke first.That's not one of my most-wanted to be honest, but yeah. The original movie figure I'd most like to see updated is Obi-Wan.
>>10726523Well Hasbro stupidly went and priced kids out of getting those fully articulated figures.>>10726626I'm hoping for vehicles and creatures. It would be nice to get a Blurrg since they've said they basically have no plans to do one for TVC.
>>10725558>Momaw NadonWhen already Hasbro? Dude's one of my favorite aliens and I've been waiting for years now. Heck, when are we getting a Sidon Ithano? All of the actual good background aliens in the ST never got good figures.
Been thinking about Boussh Leia for weeks and finally ordered her
>>10726886She's showing up at Ollie's
>>10726892She was only $16. She was my favorite Star Wars toy, probably because she had a removable helmet and those always had magical powers as a kid.
>>10726547>Farmboy Luke announced>Soft goods shirtIt'll happen and you know it, anon
>>10726554Agreed on the shitty quality of those figures. I still sorta wish for rebel marine from rogue one in tvc because I really liked the big american style helmets. Same with imperial army troopers from the mud battle in solo. That one especially sucks since it'd be such an easy army builder.
>>10726901The black series version is great looks good with ROTJ anniversary Chewie.
>>10726554What bothers me is that because TLA and Solo stuff didn't sell, Hasbro just decided that basic 3.75" must be the problem and killed the line. As much as I'd prefer that every figure have TVC level articulation I didn't mind being able to grab a few 5POA figures of characters that didn't yet have better articulated versions, plus they were a good way of getting some characters that didn't really need the articulation like droids.
>>10726548Do you hear Yub Nub or "Victory Celebration" in your head when you see this?
New Magnaguard is janky as fuck, really disappointed with it
>>10725963What was the lore reason for the battle droids looking like this any way? I thought you would fight regular pink B1s during Republic Commando
>>10727585Victory Celebration all the way. Yub nub is fine, but the SE music was fucking beautiful.
>>10727585Nta, but I’ve never seen the Soecual edition OT beyond a few clips of ANH like the older CGI version of Jabba talking to Han, so Yub Nub is the only answer for me.
>>10727739No real lore reason, just a stylization choice for the game. Similar to how the Trandoshans look more like Halo enemies than Bossk.
Posted this in the BTS if anyone’s interested.
Got another B-1, my first double. The Droid army grows
>>10727745>Victory Celebration all the way. Yub nub is fine, but the SE music was fucking beautiful.>>10727877>Nta, but I’ve never seen the Special edition OT beyond a few clips of ANH like the older CGI version of Jabba talking to Han, so Yub Nub is the only answer for me.I like both I guess it just depends on my mood.>>10727898Yousa no liken dah og anonkun?
>>10727944Is that base a custom?>>10728044I wish we could get battle damage variants like how Hasbro released them back when TPM was new. There were four different versions of the Infantry Battle Droid.
>>10727585"Yub Nub." I haven't seen the Special Editions in over a decade at this point. I also think the Ewok music is just more fitting for the scene.
>>10728121Yes, it's a custom.
>>10728044Nice. I army built that Survivor droid thanks to that GameStop sale. Went from having 0 droids to 8 and all for the price of less than 2 new BS figures.>>10728121I wish we could get those too, especially in TVC with the troop builder sets, but I also fucking hate the mold so I'd rather not be tempted to ever buy it again. Which probably means if they do make a new version, they'll do the troop pack and release it before announcing the new one just like they did with the clones.
>>10728121Oh man, those bring me back. I remember my Great Grandfather taking me to a Sears once. He let me pick up 3 of them, all differently damaged. The cashier didn't understand why I wanted 3 of the same figure, but he knew. Blog over
>>10727679>that feel when we'll never get a good tall Grievous to tower over the clones and jedi nor good magnaguards to go with him
The stand-alone show really sucked, but VTC Fett is a very fun figure.
>>10728433Scalewise the Bandai kit works well
>>10728448>>10728451>>10728454Yea, he's a great figure. I want to get a few more just to make some cool desert mercenary guys with him.
Any thoughts on the last figure standing poll that some of the TVC fan sites are putting together? Seems like they actually have some kind of pull with Hasbro, enough at least to maybe get done eyes on it.I submitted some shit I know has no chance of being made like Plo Koon from Jedi Power Battles, F from the Visions episode Village Bride, Jaina and Jacen as one dual submission, Tera Sinube and a few others.
>>10728500Hasbro does see stuff like that which is why the same groups put out the March Madness brackets too. I submitted mine yesterday. Mostly went for OT stuff like Fozec and Momaw Nadon. During the livestream, Chris from Bantha Skull mentioned that a lot of people were submitting Merrin, which was surprising to me even though I had her on my list, and he said they're just about split between distinguishing it for FO or Survivor. I went for her Survivor look since it would make more sense as she'd go with the already made Cal Kestis and the Imperial disguise one that's pipelined
>>10728514I've never done the March Madness before but maybe I'll do it this year. I thought about Merrin too but figured a ton of people would vote her anyway. I also voted for Oola, I feel like Hasbro won't make her but a lot of people will vote for her potentially
>>10728560March Madness is going to be interesting this year because a lot of the recent winners and characters that have made it far into the brackets for the last few years have been made or announced. I'll be curious to see the correlation between Last Figure Standing and MM in terms of selections and rankings.
>>10728500It's a neat concept and I hope it does actually accomplish getting some less-obvious figures people want, although similarly to you my top 10 doesn't seem to have too much overlap with other peoples' top 10, so I don't expect to see things I really want make it to their final top 10 that people get to start paring down.
>>10725557>no 3.75" Baylon Skoll or Shin Hati>the 6" versions look horribleIT'S OVER. With hasbro's release schedule, it will be Summer next year when we get the 3.75" versions at the earliest IF they are even coming.
>>10729258If nothing else we can hope that the wait means the TVC team will get them right
>>10729346This. We may have to wait but it could end up meaning that we'll be happy that Black Series were the beta tests for them.
>we could get a RotJ-accurate imperial hangar crewman for literally zero new tooling>we won'tIf only the new hat was somehow buyable separately, I'd at least get to make a few of these for myself if hasbro refuses to
>>10729346You know they’ll be way better, it seems like TVC is more accurate than black series these days maybe because they know the people still buying them are discerning collectors
>>10729450Also I wonder why no toy version of shin and baylon have had orange lightsabers yet? The Lego figures and black series both gave them red lightsabers
>>10729460They insist the lightsabers are orange, despite the promo shots all looking red. We might have to wait until someone has them in-hand to see what the deal is.
>>10729392the hangar crew don't wear gloves though do they
God I sure love overpriced boxed "deluxe" figures. So glad the whole line is overpriced "deluxe" figures now. What a healthy toy line.
>>10729919The worst part is that when these keep flopping Hasbro's going to try to figure out why, completely ignore the obvious conclusion that nobody wants to pay for overpriced figures with barely any accessories to justify the inflated cost, and decided that consumers just don't like deluxe figures anymore
>>10729851They didn't in ANH, but they did in RotJ, since most of the costume here was shared with the AT-ST driver.
>>10729919I don't mind them for big characters like Paz or like the Stormtrooper with the E-Web pack, but they were really stupid to do the Luke and Tusken sets at the same time as releasing the single packed versions. Sabine also absolutely did not need this release either when half of the shit she comes with is meaningless. And now it seems like most people are just going to wait for the mural cardback version to see if they fix the helmet issue.Speaking of Rebels characters though, Thrawn came in early from Amazon today. I really like him. Think I'll stick with this one over whatever live action based version they put out for Ahsoka.
>>10730083Probably the worst thing is Krssantan, his regular figure is a deluxe and then there's an even more expensive deluxe version which has like three extra weapons. Hasbro can't even pretend to have shame anymore.
Will we ever see the ST figures redone with faceprint tech? I know they bring bad memories, but there are couple of characters like Poe and Finn who are somewhat redeemable and never had the photoreal treatment. It is somewhat offensive that one off characters from Rogue One are rereleased and mainline trilogy characters are just getting no respect. If anything, I want to use Finn and Poe's head for OC characters.
>>10730125They did Han in the Archive series but putting Finn out in retail again would be financial suicide since the big box stores probably never want him again. Even the upcoming TVC reissue is part of a fan channel only wave. ST characters just don't sell and at this point Hasbro knows that. At best you could probably hope to get Poe and Finn in some kind of two-pack for Pulse/Shop Disney like they're doing with the Mace Windu and Clonetrooper set.
does anyone have any info on where someone could still preorder the SHF Darth Maul?
>>10730125Rogue One is still seen positively these days, whereas TLJ and especially TROS left such a bad impression that even TFA is tainted by association. There's just too much bad blood with the sequels.
>>10729919Tusken at least comes with a doggy, which is almost like a whole extra figure, but it was kinda disappointing. Only reason I went for the deluxe was cuz at the time the single tusken warrior was basically the same price. Should've come with some extra bits. Paz was really cool, and I feel like he was worth the price, even if he was just a dude with a few effect parts. The others don't seem worth at all. Exclusive krrsantan should've been what the deluxe one has, but unfortunately for me, the regular deluxe is the cheapest krrsantan. At least I'm excited for the mug and mango lol.I'd like to see a storm trooper ultimate accessory deluxe figure, where it's a storm trooper that comes with the standard blaster, the long gun, both pistols, a few of the pauldrons, a moisture backpack, and maybe some other little bits troopers would have.
>>10730125They never really made many rise of skywalker figures maybe they could make Finn and Poe in their looks from that movie, obviously we’ll get another Rey since she’s coming back I guess lol, honestly I can’t believe they only made two knights of ren like one in each scale and they never made zombie clone palpatine
>>10730351I just can't see Hasbro taking a gamble of making toys based on the sequels, especially this late in the game; I think we all know that people who would actually buy those are very much in the minority.The only way I could see it happening is as a crowdfunded box set or something but I doubt that'd even get funded.
>>10730351>Rey since she’s coming backThat movie, if it actually happens, will do worse than Solo.
>>10730289>At least I'm excited for the mug and mangoI've been liking those accessories a lot actually. And the hand to accommodate the melon is also good for choking other figures. It sucks that Hasbro will never make any of the Trandoshan dudes with removable arms to replicate that scene.>I'd like to see a storm trooper ultimate accessory deluxe figureI'm surprised they haven't made one when they did it for the First Order stormtrooper. There's a few blasters we haven't seen in a long time that would be nice to get like the T-21 and RT-97.Did anyone else unexpectedly get an out for delivery notification for Director Krennic this morning from Amazon?
>>10728306>Yes, it's a custom.Pretty nice. I have mine just sitting on a box but I have figures in front of it so you can't see it.>>10728402>Nice. I army built that Survivor droid thanks to that GameStop sale. Went from having 0 droids to 8 and all for the price of less than 2 new BS figures.I did the same thing, only picked up three but I also got three Riot Scout Troopers and a Rocket Launcher Trooper. Was a great deal.>I wish we could get those too, especially in TVC with the troop builder sets, but I also fucking hate the mold so I'd rather not be tempted to ever buy it again. Which probably means if they do make a new version, they'll do the troop pack and release it before announcing the new one just like they did with the clones.While I have some 3 3/4" stuff, I mainly get 6" figures now, so I'm not up to date on the smaller Droid figures. Those recent reveals for BS look promising. The Battle Droid and Clone Trooper two pack coming out is going to be a great way to build some troops. It would be cool if they did some variants but if they do, they will probably be sold on their own.>>10728404>Oh man, those bring me back. I remember my Great Grandfather taking me to a Sears once. He let me pick up 3 of them, all differently damaged. The cashier didn't understand why I wanted 3 of the same figure, but he knew. Blog overBased and Droid pilled.
>>10730351>Rey since she’s coming backJust like Rian Johnson's trilogy!
>>10730125>Poe and Finn who are somewhat redeemableThey are not. And them bringing Finn back is a mistake of Lando proportions.
>>10731128Not him, but I think they are going to die on the Ray hill. They have too much pride. Rian Johnson's trilogy never even got off the ground.
>>10731666The Rey movie won't get off the ground either. No way they'd sink money into it after the Marvels fiasco.
>>10731696I think they will put it out no matter the cost. If they don't don't, it will be more humiliating than the movie failing. I'd love to be proven wrong and Star Wars has a huge issue currently of movies falling through. It will be interesting to see what happens.
What did you guys do with your Throne Room sets? I've had mine sitting on my hobby desk since I got it but that's keeping me from actually being able to use the desk for projects. I want to display it but I don't have any shelves that are actually deep enough for it to sit on with the dais fully pulled out. Feeling like if I take it down with the intent that it'll only be temporary (until the Jabba set releases), it might just end up remaining packed away which is almost sacrilege.
Haven't seen a comparison shot anywhere between the new rebels Thrawn and the older comic Thrawn so I figured I'd post one here. I think the older figure still holds up pretty well visually, but the hips basically don't move at all due to the lower tunic's stiffness, which is a shame because I wish he could at least sit down in a chair. The new one can do that and pretty much anything else you could think of, but the potential of it is somewhat wasted when we don't have his sparring droids for him to do any really impressive poses with. Would be great if the Ghost's success compelled them to make more of the rebels characters he interacted with like Rukh, Pryce, those droids, etc., but I'm not exactly gonna hold my breath on that.
>>10731876Honestly I think a lot of SW figures from the mid-2000's still hold up
Just watched Andor, legit the best Disney star wars.>tfw you'll never work at the ISB, work a fulfilling, satisfying job in a positive work environment, crush rebel scums with cutie co-worker like Deera under an amazing boss like Partagaz.These two deserve figures
>>10731713They have blatantly lied and canned projects before. Pic related, we should be well into the second trilogy, they were aiming for SW to be annual release
Marrok is neat. I'd like to repaint him though. Also got TVC Krennic. His portrait is awesome. Not crazy about the plastic cape but I'm not sure if soft goods would have been any better because of the collar it has.
>>10731880Agreed 100%, I get that swivel hips can be a dealbreaker for some but there's a lot of otherwise really great figures from that time period, many of which are absurdly unlikely to ever get revisited. The sculpt+paint quality on these guys is perfectly on-par with current figures, so I can pretty easily deal with their swivel hips when we're absolutely never gonna see hasbro (or anyone else) take another shot at them. There's some that just don't work of course, the old regular Stormtroopers being the most obvious example, but overall I think there's more hits than misses.
>>10726548>Han, Luke & Leia look PISSEDkinda ruins it IMHO>>10726555>he’s the only black guy in the galaxyWASTED DIGITS on retardation! Did you close your eyes through much of ROTJ, and even ESB?>>10727585>Yub NubI even bought the 45 record this year, just because, and the b side is Lapti Nek
>>10730125>Will we ever see the ST figures redoneYes. But look to how long they waited before bringing back the PT stuff, and maybe double that timeframe.
>>10731666>I think they are going to die on the Ray hill.CHECKED!
>>10732591I love the Evo and Jump Troopers from TFU. Some of my favorite trooper designs and toys.>>10732486After messing with him a bit more I am really surprised to see that he has ball jointed wrists instead of the normal swivel and hinge ones. Very nice for a lightsaber wielder. I think that alone kind of makes up for the lack of thigh swivels.
>>10731824I put mine on my bookshelf. It fits just barely. If it were a cm longer it’d be hanging over the edge. It is kind of odd to have my book collection broken up by a random Bib Fortuna on a throne with various other aliens, but it looks nice.
>>10731311To be fair to poe, his character wasn't terribly bad. He was hyped to get a traitor to save him, and was willing to guide him into this second chance. He was a dedicated soldier to his cause, and was even willing to just do what he felt was necessary to said cause, even if his allies didn't agree. The narrative tried to portray him as wrong in 8, but he was actually right pretty much in every step.Finn and the most potential, and also has a good character, but he was ruined by OTHER terrible characters. Namely, rose and rey. Rose literally ruined Finn's redemption sacrifice play at the end of 8, and then the writers relegated him to reys puppy in 9.These two are more like victims to the terrible narrative that they were put in, but in isolation aren't particularly bad.
>>10732830eh, I think there was room for his lession in 8 being "dying for the cause is easy, you have to take the hard path of living to fight more" but either way you are correct that 9 just punted him regardless
>>10732860Yeah they kinda tried to SAY that, but then the narrative undermines that like, immediately lmao. At least they put rose on a shelf in the background for 9, but that's like saying "at least the piece of shit was a solid rather than a liquid" at this point, huh?
>when you talk, we listenHow the times have changed since 2007
>>10733041The entire action figure market was different in 2007. I miss it, really.
>>10733041>tfw when we'll never get another protocol droid with a giant dildo on a tray again
First they came for torso articulation, and I did not speak out, because I did not use torso articulation.Then they came for the double jointed knees, and I did not speak out, because I did not use double jointed knees.Then they came for the thigh cuts, and I did not speak out because I did not use thigh cuts.Then they came for ankle joints, and there was no one left to speak out for me.
>>10729919That Luke figure is the only Luke in Hasbro's entire history that doesn't look like shit.
>>10733113Black Series used to be the pinnacle of 6 inch figure. Marvel Legends people used to complain that they keep getting reused molds while Black Series get almost unique mold every character. Black Series have had really good facial sculpt that is of incredible likeness to actors like Harisson Ford, Mark Hamil, Ewan Mcgregor, etc. and we led the way for facial print tech. Look at how the mighty have fallen, now we have single jointed limbs, rushed product based on artwork rather than screen accuracy, the absolute state of Ashoka figures.
>>10733113>Black Series loses articulation>TVC has been gaining it
>>10733041>2007Felt like the last year of real Star Wars to me. Never got on board with the TCW shit and that just rocketed straight into Disney.
>>10733156>incredible likeness to actors like Harisson Ford, Mark Hamil, Ewan Mcgregor, etc.lol, lmao even
>>10733152I still think Black Series Dagobah Luke is the only one that’s actually looked like Luke.
>>10733392that one and the farmboy figure look good
Pre looks really good. Interesting that they adjusted the space in the torso to alter the height on the mold. Also how they could do the removable helmet so well here and with the Tatooine Boba but fail so hard with Sabine's.
they ever releasing anymore vintage collection stormtroopers? been collecting again to have fun crossover fights with my warhammer figures but my old stormtroopers kinda rotted a bit. i still have some good ones but id love to get maybe a bakers dozen. they seem to just be releasing specialists and officers so far.
>>10733200yeah, new thrawn is great. has the new officer body and is very poseable. VTC is honestly more fun then Black series at this point.
>>10734095They recently put out preorders for a reissue of the Walmart exclusive VC231 stormtrooper that went to fanchannel sites but they are sold out now. Pic related is about the only available standard trooper available for a decent price, since you could just pop the pauldron off and just order some E-11's off Marauders to give them normal blasters. And despite what the picture shows, the actual production version has rocker ankles.
>>10734117yeah, i have that one, he isnt bad. I might get the new ATST because i keep seeing that the thing can actually stand which is nice.
>>10734104I still want to order the Pulse officer pack but so far I've got Piett, Thrawn, and Krennic. I really like the new body. Only real thing I want from it is a bit more range in the shoulders and elbows but it's more than serviceable. Hopefully they do another pack at some point and make the officers in the black uniforms.
>>10734172is krennic out? i found a thrawn by accident same with piett. my local gamestop and walmart always gets shit in early. but yeah i might get the officer pack too at some point.
>>10734238He wasn't supposed to be out until January but Amazon got their shipment in early apparently. I didn't even know he was coming until I got a notification that he shipped the morning he was due to arrive. That whole wave seems to be starting to pop up though since other people are getting Revan and Pre Vizsla.
So hasnTVC gone up in price recently, or is my local Walmart being scalpers? I just picked up the Ashoka HK and it was like 18.75 after taxes!they had grand Inquisitor too, which I kind of wanted to buy, but I only had $30 cash, so couldn't.I mean, I know I'm a part of the problem as I still bought it, but jeez!Also, why the fuck did they put a cut in the middle of his thighs!? Why not just put the swivel in the hips, or on the knees!?
>>10734708It's been $16.99 for the last couple of waves. I expect it to be going up again soon considering the last few multipacks have equaled out to about $18 per figure.

Wake the fuck up imperial mandos from SHF
>>10734967Ah shit. Gonna be too expensive to army build
>>10734967Surprised we haven't had more imperial stuff from Mando season 3 in TVC. Yeah the story sucked, but some of the designs would still make for some good figures, such as these guys and the proto-praetorian guard.... Eh, maybe Gideon in his Mando cosplay... Pirates might be pretty cool, too!
>>10734967remember they also made a gideon prototype but never released it
>>10735044Have we had anything at all from season 3? I don't remember. I think Black Series only got that random Fleet Commander guy announced during the Mando Mania and then Greef's droid like a week ago with another repacked Mando. How did they drop the ball so hard for the most popular show but had entire waves for both BS and TVC ready to go for Ahsoka?
>>10735073Yeah I was wondering the same thing. Like, they would have had everything, toy wise, decided and ready before the season aired, so why none of these as figures, yet, like you said, ahsoka show got most everything done. I can only think because of spoilers? Didn't want to spoil the "evil imperial mandalorians"? Praetorian was presented as a sort of twist, but wasn't really that big a deal, and you could have labeled these things deceptively to maintain their "twists", such as "imperial rangers" for the beskar armored guys (shit, I forget, was that what they were actually called??), and elite guard for praetorian, etc. but w/e, well see, i guess.Also, nice pick up, >>10734951 I made sure to get that bike in 1:18 scale too, on clearance of course, because it was pretty cool!
I was thinking of using it for Aphra, but I think it fits with Cobbsman more.
>>10735095I'm guessing they weren't told some stuff but at the very least they still have barely supported it with their announcements thus far since the show ended. All they have said TVC wise that we're getting besides another Mando and Grogu is a retooled Axe Woves and the Mandalorian Judge. I couldn't think of lazier releases when they could do the Imperial Armored Commandos or the Praetorian Guards.
>>10733152It's not bad but to me it's just very boring looking, which is why I haven't pulled the trigger on either release. My most recent Luke figure is the Endor capture Luke (which I like, but the articulation is lacking) so it's tempting, but it's a boring figure. It also still isn't very accurate.
>Adam Sessler when you try to take his cocaine away from him
>>10729919>Reva still pegwarmingLmao
>>10734967I feel this will join the other unreleased.
>>10734967It may just be a prototype they're never releasing but at least we know they still care
>>10735284>they still careLol... lmao
>>10735328They would have done a Bo Katan and/or Ahsoka by now if they did. Instead MAFEX picked up the slack.
The legs are all fucking mangled on my magnaguards, gonna have to hit them with the blow dryer. Can't wait for the plastic packaging to come back. Shoulder pads fall off super easily as well.Just gimme supers and droidekas so I can quit this line forever(unless we get something out of left field like Kyle Katarn)
>let's just slap the bad out-of-scale legs from the young Han Solo onto this new figure and call it a dayTimes you acted like Han Solo (TVC281)?
>>10735973I hate this figure. The main characters should never be so lazily done like that.
Malgus doesn't look too bad on it (I hate his dumb kneepads) zoom zoom zoom

Recent local retro pickups. The carded figures are gonna be gifted, but the loose boys are mine to play with!
>>10736464I always kind of wanted tube face there because he reminds me of ash ghouls from morrowind.Damn, I still got that very Luke from when I was a kid! His cloak and lightsaber are long gone, though.
>>10736464>red cardback Vader Nice
>>10736464Those were my childhood Luke and Vader. I remember how devastated I was when I left them with a my other core characters at my aunt and uncle's house one summer without realizing it, thinking I'd just lost them somewhere. Went a whole year before we visited them again and I found them in a Taco Bell kids meal box from when they were having the Special Edition release promo inside a cabinet with their board games. It was like seeing an old (good) friend.
>>10736747I had Force Ghost Obi-Wan and left it in a taxi when we were on vacation. Bounty Hunter Leia arrived today and it takes me right back to laying on my bedroom carpet with a pile of toys. She was one of my favorites as a kid because she had a removable helmet.
>>10736821Boushh Leia and pic related Chewie (along with 3PO and R2) became my replacement characters to fly my Millennium Falcon when Han and Luke went missing. So those two are definitely close to my heart. If they release a Chewie figure based on that SOTE one, then I'll definitely grab it to display next to that Leia.
>>10737584Being Canadian I know how you feel. 49.99 for Malgus 39.99 for black series, 29.99 for vintage. I got most of my figures either used or at a discount. And it almost feels like I still paid too much. The Droids are fun at least
Do you think Hasbro will actually put in the effort to retool parts needed for Ahsoka the White or will they simply repaint the Mandalorian versions they already have?
>>10738041It's funny that anyone thought the first version looks anything like the actress.
>>10738138It does though
>>10738041Neither of these looks like her, so either they fucked up or they don't have dawsons contract
>>10738041I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the original looks NOTHING like Rosario
>>10735973If I remember right from the Solo version you can’t even really move his right leg at all cause the holster.
Amazon shipped TVC Revan out (perfect timing when they more or less confirmed the remake is dead now) but I'm hoping Hera won't be too far behind..
>>10739041>perfect timing when they more or less confirmed the remake is dead nowIt sucks, but it may be for the best. I wouldn't want them to slip any Sequel shit into it to try to "update it" any.
>>10739182Frankly, I'm glad it's dead. Nothing that dumb bitch Sam Maggs works on should ever see the light of day.
>>10739202Wasn't she laid off or left? Not that it would matter much considering her type infest these companies.
>>10739202She left awhile ago (or was fired). She has too much baggage and brings along endless drama. It's a wonder she gets hired anywhere. I first learned about her from the viral GTA V video. I think it's two fold, shes a gifter and loves the attention. It's very strange.
>>10738041They want 300 dollars for the new one. Comes with a swap out angry expression that’s kind of questionable.
>>10739729I hope they actually go through with making this one
Damn. There’s some good figures coming up. Hope you wallet is ready to buy one or allRe release of the Vader rotj anniversary. Ashoka the white. Obiwan, artisan Anakin.Easy $1200 just next year. You can drop the Vader but the Anakin,Ashoka, and obiwan are prob must buys
>TVC kenobi 3 pack all the way down to $25Wild that the purge trooper wasn't desirable enough to move all of these before this point, god I hope the poor sales of this isn't why they never finished all 4 JFO purge trooper variants
>>10739950I might grab another set at that price. Kenobi is perfect background fodder and you can never have too many Jawas. Though I wonder why the Purge Troopers in Jedi Survivor didn't have that design from Kenobi when they take place around the same exact time.
>>10730285Rogue One hasn't aged well. I watched it recently. Awful, all of the characters soulless and diversity castings. The Robot was the only character in the entire movie other than Vader with the slighest likability. I think that movie was seen positively because they ended with that scene with Vader that goes into ANH, but man the rest of the movie is so fucking boring. the Vader scenes are literally the only interesting scenes in the movie and then those can be depressing because James Earl Jones is like 90 years old and sounds like it. Also there are no John Williams tracks, so it doesn't even feel like Star Wars at all.
>>10740036Rogue One was a bad movie from the start. But it at least didn't shit all over what came before it (the stupidity of needing to explain the Death Star having a weak point notwithstanding). It's the best Star Wars Disney movie, but that isn't saying much, and yeah, it's...bad when you start really looking at it. But I enjoy it for bits and bobs.The Sequels have no redeeming factor whatsoever. I actually remembered Phasma was a thing the other day and kind of blinked into space. Just waste. That's all those movies are. Waste.
>>10740036>Rogue One hasn't aged well.>a movie from 2016>7 Star Wars movies later>aged wellWere you ten when you watched it or something?That term is used for shit that's made before break thrus or casualization happened.Nevermind nothing you said is actually original. Shit's been repeated on /tv/, /co/, and /toy/ since almost 10 years ago. Can you believe it's only 3 more years til its tenth anniversary? TRU was still open when it came out and all its merch clearanced out.
>>10740036>The RobotYa, that is a dead give away you aren't a Star Wars fan and just want to shit post.
>>10740081I see fuckers on this board talk about 4 year old toys aging. shits crazy.
>>10740081>TRUnow THAT didn't age well
>>10726548>>10726548Lol the women got her hand on the guy in black ass.
>got my Black Series Mangaguard>has warped thighs>no thigh swivel>can barely stand up straight due to warped thighsYeah that's it I'm finalyl done with this series. I've had too many quality control issue with the past couple figures I've got to ever justify buying more of these. What a shame.
>>10740425I understand your point of view, because the Mangaguard is so damn egregious, but I think release like this are far and few between. Honestly, it's no excuse but it seems to happen with skinny droids. This last few waves really had some stinkers though. If it's something I don't need right away, I typically watch a youtube review. Thankfully a lot of channels are getting these things pretty early and you can doge a bullet if you're on top of it. Again, there is no excusing this though. Hasbro really dropped the ball on the Mangaguard.
>>10739736I think they've gotten better with Star Wars, at least since the massive wave of PT stuff they showed off and never touched.Maybe I'm just coping too hard. They'll probably wait a year and just release Vader again.
>>10740425>>10740522It's such an awful figure, I don't even know how this happened. The TVC version didn't have problems like this. I had bought four from Amazon, but after opening the first one and seeing how janky it was, I returned two of them.Also sucks that you can remove the cape and cowl, but the head is sculpted so that there's a huge indentation for the cowl. So it's clearly not designed to be displayed as a capeless version like you saw in TCW.
>>10740425>>10740522>>10740534Yeesh. Kinda glad I skipped preordering one now.
>>10740534>Also sucks that you can remove the cape and cowl, but the head is sculpted so that there's a huge indentation for the cowlThat's a huge shame, I was planning on getting some to use as Grievous's bodyguards and getting extras to customize into Dooku's yellow variants that didn't have capes or hoods, but I keep seeing more and more reasons to just not get any at all.
Finally found a Hera today, she looks like she has seen some shit
>>10740228that's her brother you sicko
Anybody else have her yet?
Pandemic Battlefront fans need this.
>>10741133oh I'm retarded
>>10740927They're very close.
>>10740081by that I mean watching it for the first time since seeing it in theaters when your caught up in the hype/moment. "aged well" probably wasn't the best way to word it. More like "first time watching it objectively". and it doesn't matter if what I said is original or not. I didn't claim to be. the fact that its all been said just means more people noticed it. /toy is the only board I visit and it's certainly not to discuss the latest shitmedia. >>10740100I'm a predisney star wars fan so I don't go out of my way to learn the names of these new fuckers or immerse myself in the lore and expanded material. the only names of characters I could give you in that movie were Jyn Erso (mostly because her toy gets memed as a pegwarmer) and Krennic.
>>10741176Pretty sure his point was that you used robot instead of droid, which no real Star Wars fan would do
Black Series when? You know you're gonna buy it out of spite /swg/
>>10741058Nope. I am sticking with the animated version I got a few years ago. She is cool though. Just not interested in re buying her.>>10741135I would personally love one of the the Dark Forces versions over this, but I'd still buy it.>>10741176>I'm a predisney star wars fanSo, the same as everyone else here? I have never met a core Star Wars fan that calls any of the droids, robots. I wasn't even expecting you to use the correct name or type of droid. It just is really strange to hear someone use the term robot and a dead give away you just want to derail the thread with hot takes.
Revan is pretty cool. Really like the way his soft goods came out and how his red saber is almost opaque. Damn shame his elbows barely even get 90 degrees though.
Is it too late to switch scale to 1/18th? Feels like I'm 30 years behind. I just need the main cast for starters, Leia Han Luke 3PO R2, Darth Vader and maybe some Stormtroopers. Are the best iteration of these characters hard to find at TVC scale?
>>10741557The good news is that a lot of main characters get reissued frequently, Vader especially is a character that gets a release pretty much every year. Still, you might need to settle for figures that aren't 100% the best release in some cases if you're just starting out since looking for a specific version of a character for a good price can be trickier than just finding a mostly decent version of that same character for a lower price.
>>10741557In all truthfulness, I would say stay away. The TVC and that scale (for amazing figures) is bonkers.. MSRP is 17 bucks right now. New stuff you can sometimes get on sale, but I don't think it's worth it. Again, take my opinion with a grain of salt since I am a casual collector. TVC Speeder Bike is 20 bucks. Pick it up and judge. That is a major fluke for the line.
>>10741557kill yourself you 1/12 retard
>>107415571/18th is the greatest scale and it is always the best time to switch to it.
>>10741058Ah yes, another addition to the uggo brigade. Really building up that team of butter faces eh anon?
>>10740036>>10740071>We're on a Diplomatic Mission!>Oh yeah? then why are my lightsaber marks all over your fucking ship?Rogue One was utter trash. I've said it since day one. And yes, the ending with Vader was why people remembered it so well, but the hours leading up to it were crap. It was full of forced feminism, to the point of even replacing the leader on Yavin 4 (General Dodonna) with Mon Mothma who wasn't even there at the time, not to mention all the other dumb crap. Like Jyn wandering in to save that child during the gunfight, when that kid dies minutes later when the Death Star fires it's laser. It was a shit film.
>>10725557Figuarts Kenobi Vader.
>>10741791>Oh yeah? then why are my lightsaber marks all over your fucking ship?It's not the same ship dude
>>10741791he lightsabers those guys in the ship thats carrying the ship from a new hope
>>10741791i have issues with rogue one(bad pacing, most of the characters being there to fill kill count,etc) but i dont hate that part. in the old canon they basicaly get seen in a warzone getting transmissions from the planet and booking it the second the imps start moving in. the whole hallway scene just makes it all more explicit. vader knows leia is lying in both canons and can prove it but has to walk a line because the senate still sorta exists. plus andor show is good.
TVC Thrawn is a fine piece of art. Why is Thrawn the only imperial officer cool enough to get a holster for his blaster?
>>10742003movie accuracy, also krennic has one.
>>10741725Well, at least my personality isn't suffering from an identity crisis.
My local Ollie's
>>10741557It's not too late. In fact this is a pretty good time to get into it as far as figures go because they're pretty much the best they've ever been. Only downsides compared to the 2007+ golden age is the price, lack of vehicles, and less selection of characters.As for the main characters, Hasbro has said they've been aware of the "Make the Mains" campaign surrounding TVC 2.0 and they are working on getting new/updated versions of them into the line. They recently pipelined ANH Leia, ANH Vader, R2-D2, and the Stormtrooper. Leia is supposed to be all new, the others are unknown. Vader is most likely going to be a retooled version of the Dark Times from Kenobi (which you could get now and be pretty damn satisfied with it as it is the best Vader we've gotten in the scale so far). The Stormtrooper might just be a repack of the last one they did that was Walmart exclusive and it is also pretty damn good. If you want some now, you could get the Gaming Greats Heavy Trooper version and just remove the pauldron and buy some E-11's from Marauder Gun Runners to turn them into regular troopers since they are available for retail still. For Han, you could get the recent ROTJ version seen here >>10735973 but it is definitely not the ideal version since it's half a new figure and half reuse from the young Han from the Solo movie. For Luke you could go with the Imperial Light Cruiser version since it makes for a decent ROTJ Luke but he might be a little more expensive on the aftermarket now. Personally I would just wait on everything besides Vader and maybe the troopers. They haven't pipelined a new Han or Luke (besides the X-Wing version) but they'll no doubt come out with them in the near future.
>>10741791I was browsing "normie" boards at the time, and my god. The way people were gushing over Rogue 1 was pathetic. I remember people saying how it felt like Alien or a legit Horror movie. and people saying it was way better than the prequels. People obviously jizzing over the Vader scene. I went in expecting to see Vader literally hounding down "the cast" for like a halfhour stretch taking them out one by one. But no, they all just died randomly or when the planet blew up and the Vader scene was literally just 20 seconds of him pwning a couple randoms. Fuck Rogue One.
>>10741820looks pretty good. Chances are this is the new "definitive" Vader. I'm just hoping the handpeggs arn't as overly tight as the ROTJ one and that the QC is good. Figuarts has been shaky lately on some of the Dragonball stuff and the One Piece line looks like a complete shitshow.
>>10742416All the Ross stores around here have Archive Chewie, Old Han, Tarkin, and Boussh Leia
>>10741820>stitching looks like shit>cape looks like a bathrobe>stupid wire added to robeJust keep fucking up.
>>10742573oh yeah>didn't update the body so it has the same soft sculpt and dated articulation as the ANH and RotJ VadersBut that was known from the promos at least.
>>10741820Did they wad up some play-dough for the head in there?
>>10742478Marauder-knowing anon, do you know if their heads can fit onto (and look the right size with) recent TVC figures like the imperial officers and aldhani solider andor? I wanna have generic officers and they look like the best quality-to-afffordability solution to this problem, but I have no idea if the heads will actually work or not.
>>10741557I think now is a decent time to dive in. Probably the best it's been since TVC first began in 2010. Some of the character choices remain dubious -- I'm happy for KOTORfags but it's a little grating that we got a new Darth Revan while the new Han Solo is half good and half reused shit -- but in general the figures are better than they've ever been. Check out the Dark Times Darth Vader and see for yourself.
>>10742646I'm afraid I can't answer that accurately since I don't have any MTF figures but I would imagine the heads would be okay since they're supposed to be similar to modern era GI Joes and those heads don't seem too out of scale compared to SW stuff. Someone in the 1:18 General could probably give you a better answer though.
>>10742646>>10742883I got a little curious and while this isn't MTF, it's a Renegades Duke figure and the new officer's hat fits surprisingly well on him. What might be a problem is the actual ball peg for the officer's neck joint. It's pretty massive compared to the size of the holes in Joe heads so you might have to make some adjustments with that when it comes to the MTF heads since they look to have a similar size in pictures.
>>10742883Oh I thought that general disappeared but I see it's there again, thanks for pointing out it's back, I'll go ask over there since it's a more general 1:18 question.>>10742902Yeah the neck ball socket size is my main concern aside from scale, it's tolerable if the hole's a bit too big but if it's too small that means I gotta try drilling it out or some such nonsense and I'd rather avoid that if possible.
I want a black series Anakin
How is the newish Erza and Ahsoka? I already have 3 out of the 5, I may as well go for 5 out of 5
>>10743000They're both pretty good. Ahsoka is just a repack of the Mando one but her face print looks better. Ezra is cool even if it's not really his main appearance in the show. Though personally I'm glad to get this look since I wasn't a big fan of his design for first two seasons. You should get them.
For those who were also waiting for a sale to pick up the ROTJ force ghost three pack, it's currently 25% off on pulse.
>>10743018Will do Anon, Thanks for the input
anyone get their Christmas droid?
>>10743265That anon is specifically trying to build the ugliest team he can. Team Butterface.
>>10742416Those came out months ago. Only palps are left in the see of Old Han, Mof Tarkins, Zor Bliss, Boush Leia, Skiff Lando and some Chewwies and Dengars. You'd be lucky to fins a death trooper.
so marrok and hera have ball joint wrists, I hope they bring them to gi joe or marvel legends soon.
>>10742416>they/thems have to pay moreOUTRAGE
>>10743558Holy shit that's actually really based, Ollie's is probably going to get cancelled for this but to see a nationwide retailer standing up against tranny shit and making them pay more is fucking incredible
Season 2 Omega is 17 bucks on Amazon right now.
>>10743792Season 1 is also 7 dollars in case anyone wants that too.
Jesus, how does this even happen
>>10742478Jango and stormtroopers are nice additions. will get that scout trooper and bike thats always on sale on amazon and also the new ATST thats apperently good.
>>10743817If you want a taste of Jango, pickup the Mandalorian Airborne Trooper. It matches about 95% of Jango's design so they will most likely be using that as the base figure.
>>10743823holy shit his legs actually do things. unlike every stormtrooper now adays.
>>10743834Yep. The barbell hips have been a great addition to TVC along with the rocker ankles. Shame they couldn't implement them a bit earlier for characters like Boba Fett (ROTJ) or Mando.
>>10741265Looks good. Still strikes me as a weird choice on Hasbro's end, but I'm sure it will sell.
Love this little guy. The head tilt really helps add character. I do wish that his arms had joints or at the very least could be popped off so you could display him without them. I wonder if they'll do anything different for the mural cardback version.>>10744033I think they were just playing off the Black Series releases. I do wonder if they'll scale down the Malak figure for TVC though.
>>10736072Based roger poster
SO MANY MIDICHLORIANS IN ONE PLACE
>>10743834What is this meant to mean? The stormtrooper hips take a bit longer to pose sure, but there isn't any difference at all in range of motion between the new hips and those.
>>10744476Perfect custom fodder for an Order 66 diorama
Seeing all those young Anakins makes me wonder how the toys for this are going to be handled. Jude Law would probably be the only figure that sells. Maybe the pirates if they make any. Can't see any of the kids being hot sellers though. And that would suck if they make full waves for the show in both lines like what we got for Ahsoka.
>>10744476so many sandlings
>>10741194Look at the cunt! Oops useless cunt!
>>10743151Cloak looks like shit and they fucked up the visor again. Not that the helmet in general was good to begin with.
I like these small boxes, they are great for putting figures in when you aren't playing with them, I like the idea of getting some plastic or metal boxes around this size, then labeling them, like one for clones, one for rebels etc
>>10745112i am surprised they havent released another Stormtrooper vtc pack. also id love an imperial army trooper pack too someday.
>Mad hatter is second in brand after KKJesus Christ, it will be even worse now

>>10745401Sophia Lillis as Luke?
>>10745401I dunno, I like it. Reminds me of the way the Hildebrandts would render him sometimes.
>>10745567This. I'm actually tempted to get it as an EU Luke.
>>10745479Weird thing to say in a Star Wars thread of all places.
>>10744476Now THIS is podracing
>>10741820after all this time it suddenly dawned on me that his cape is "floating" over his shoulders instead of being attached like say, inside his neck socket or something like the Black Series. Floating cap plus wire it's just a fiddly mess waiting to happen. I love my edgy boi but I'll have to settle with the kenobi BS and cancel my pre order
>>10745401>CGI Luke faceIS it good because they got a digital model from Disney?
>>10745567His face is melting to one side...hahah that's so horrible
>>10745337Upper body looks like the Mandalorian outfit, but the skirt looks like ROTJ. Strips should be wider up top and narrower on the lower part of the tunic.
>>10746325Hot Toys is the only company that's gotten the outfit correct. What's funny is they were the first to put there version for sale.
>>10746302sup newfag?That was the style of the 60s, 70s, and 80s.Shit like this used to be posted on /b/ like crazy back in the day
>>10746327For some reason I think Hot Toys gets much better reference material than everyone else and a lot sooner too. They had their Dark Trooper fully designed and solicited like a month after the Tython episode dropped. Meanwhile, Hasbro said they weren't even aware of their existence until they watched the episode and it took them a full year to put theirs up for preorder. And it looks like the same thing is happening with Ahsoka the White.
>>10746459>they can't trust Hasbro not to leak shitkek
I wish they handled the new TVC Luke a little differently. The fabric skirt looks a bit dumb. I guess they did it to make the sitting position possible, but I don't care for it at all.
>>10746325>>10746327Star Wars Autismo
>>10746627In fairness most of the Jedi Luke designs are so simple and similar that if companies are going to bother doing multiple iterations they should try to get the differences right. I imagine a lot of people don't care because they see all these Luke costumes as interchangeable and are only going to get one of them anyway, but still.
TVC deluxe Paz Vizsla is $13 at Amazon

this looks clean as hell, it's literally sam jackson in the clone wars outfit for a joke price. Makes me want to get back into 3.75" star wars collecting.

>>10745401Honestly face looks pretty good, hair is a little off, but all things considered most Lukes look MUCH worse than this. Only one I’ve been happy with is the Black Series Dagobah one and the SHF windswept hair version of Luke.
>>107487793.75” faces are mostly pretty good now. Some I think are better than Black Series even.
>>10749340yeah I've noticed some are nicer, essentially just straight up different because it's not the same sculpt
>>10749338It's pretty, but it doesn't actually look like Mark Hamil. Also the price is high for what little you get.
>>10749340Definitely the case with Pre Vizsla.
He looks so comfy
>>10725557Pre Vizsla is just gorgeous fellas.
>>10743843Great job putting the airborne helmet on instead of Axe's embarrassing bucket.
>>10749461Yea, I bought an extra Airborne just to do that since it was a cheap Amazon Warehouse deal. Kept meaning to paint it to match his actual helmet, but then they announced the new one so I'm going to wait and see if they just do the swappable head and keep the AT to go with the others I have to back up Pre Vizsla.Got my Aldhani Andors in from Amazon's Black Friday sale. Put some extra Joe heads on them for now. Also found these stunbatons and thought they were a perfect additional weapon for these guys to have. Especially since I can't find their accurate blaster for sale anywhere in TVC scale.
>>10748769That's a great figure. I bought it for 19 dollars and felt it was well worth it. It's my main Mace (why buy another?) and it's from the micro series. It's a win, win. I also found it for 4 dollars for my buddy loose. It's slightly bulk but it fits in with the style of the animated min series.
>>10741058I don't even know why you'd bother when her original figure has the same outfit, but a better face and body.
>>10749672Never seen the Cartoon, I liked her in Ahsoka. So I bought one
>>10749535Nice shot, the purple lighting is a good extra touch. Did those other Joe heads go on fairly easily? The sizing looks correct from this photo, and if those fit and use roughly the same sized ball socket as Marauder that'd presumably make it a safe bet that the Marauder heads will work on 'em.
>>10746458he means the facial features are skewed and drifting to one side idiot, he doesn't mean the floating head bullshit
>>10749759Thanks. Yea they went on pretty easily. I used a Ray Stevenson Firefly and the unmasked head from the Retaliation G.I. Joe Trooper. There is a bit of a gap between the necks and the heads but I just did a dry fit without any heat to get them on so you might not have that issue. The only real problem is the hats. I had to put a bit of tac in them to get them to stay in place. They kept wanting to pop off but that's just with those two heads. The Duke I used in >>10742902 didn't have that problem, probably because he has hair for the sides to grip onto.Also this thread isn't bumping anymore which is really frustrating.
>>10749673>liked her in Ahsoka>liking any of the live-action versions of the characters
Pre Vizsla is fucking great. It was obvious he'd be good just with the body they used but his portrait is incredible. The Darksaber is also much better than the one given to Moff Gideon since it has that crackling effect.
>>10750268I don't know how the TBS team dropped the ball on the head so badly. TVC head looks like the character, TBS head looks like some random cosplayer.
>>10749535what extra heads did you use for the soldiers?
>>10750336Me either. I think the Black Series one looks like Adam Sessler. That combined with the fact that they reused Jango's body has put me off from buying the figure. Which sucks as he was a character I wanted for a long time but I'm more than happy with the TVC one.>>10750362I posted it above but they are unmasked heads from the Retaliation Firefly and G.I. Joe Trooper figures.
>>10750336When I first saw the TBS Vizsla I actually didn't even recognize him, I thought it was some background Mando from The Mandalorian and it took me a second to notice he had Vizsla's helmet and markings.
Being attached to the sequels probably makes it sales poison, but I wish we got this flashback Luke in TVC. The other two sequel Luke figures kind of suck and it would be a good all-purpose older Luke.
>>10750620I mean, you could probably do it by taking the Crait Luke head and putting it on the Jedi Master Luke body
>>10750623Yeah, but I don't think Crait Luke has a very good head sculpt at all. Call me picky but I think they can do much better.
>>10750629Yeah it's not great but at this point that's probably your best shot. Even main character costumes from the sequels aren't getting done now, a flashback scene version has basically no chance.
>>10750632I know, Hhnce why I called it sales poison. It's still incredible to me TVC/3.75" only got the one Kylo Ren figure from 2015. Hasbro is sitting on information that we don't have, but if you told me in 2015 we'd get something like fucking Vel before another Kylo I wouldn't have believed it. I still barely can.
>>10750641We're getting the legendary pegwarmer Finn reissued into TVC so nothing is exactly off the table
>>10750646It seems like they're doing it to gauge interest in seeing more sequel figures, but they chose the absolute wrong figure for it and when he fails to sell they're just going to say "oh well people just don't want sequel characters"...which isn't entirely wrong but come on
>>10750653My guess is it's because we're approaching the 10th anniversary of TFA, so they probably want to get Finn out of the way so they can do Poe, Kylo, FO stormtrooper, and Rey reissues next year as another fan channel exclusive wave. That way they can avoid people calling them racists for excluding him
>>10750653>"oh well people just don't want sequel characters">...which isn't entirely wrongOther than the Luke I posted above, there are a few I'd be interested in. TROS Emperor, another Kylo with better articulation and without the hood, Ben Solo. There are things I want more (namely updates of older figures) but I'd take these over a number of things we've gotten.
>>10750653I don’t why they at least don’t do Kylo. I think that’s one redeeming factor of those movies. Adam Driver’s talked the same way people used to talk about Ewan McGreggor was when prequel hate was popular. They never put out an unmasked version with good articulation. I’d like one, whether it just be an unmasked Kylo or a Ben Solo with the blue lightsaber. I think that character would sell fine. Certainly no worse than Andor characters or Reva or something.
>>10750808I think they're still afraid of doing anything sequel-related, so they're testing the waters with a safe option. Yeah, Finn's not going to be the best seller, but he's a figure they can reissue with faceprint and with zero new tooling and still call it a "new" figure. If he flops again, they don't really lose much.
Here are the top 10 for the Last Figure Standing fan poll. These aren't in any order as to not influence the upcoming voting rounds but there were some interesting facts. Such as Cobb Vanth had split votes between his armored version and the Sherriff version and still made it into the top 10. Same with Ventress being split between her Dark Disciple look and her regular assassin one.Next round of voting has started to vote for 5 of these characters and the top 6 will move onto the next round after that.
>>10750885Maybe not what I would've chosen for a top ten but I can't deny that Ben, Farmboy Luke and ROTS Anakin are in need of updates. Not sure why they wasted a slot on the Tonnikas though, I know the supposed legal issues were debunked but Hasbro has made it clear they have no interest in making them.
>>10750944Honestly kind of a waste to nominate Baylan and Shin, they're bound to get figures soon anyway
New SHF Vader apparently has a shit neck, can't look up or down. Nobody's actually shown the joint on camera though.I just want to know if it can be fixed with a longer peg.
>>10750885>absolutely none of my top 10 made it inExpected, but still slightly disappointing.
Got some good black Friday deals and was able to pick up Saelt, Kithaba and Woof for the throne room display. Love these weirdos, the palace is really starting to feel alive.
>>10750885Need ARF trooper.
>>10751023I only got one but that's okay. >>10751068Nice Anon. I wish I would have seen Kithaba on sale. I need to grab him but can't bring myself to pay $17 for him. I plan on swapping out his legs to get rid of those awful hips he's got.
>>10750629Why does he look like tall Peter Dinklage.
A generic resistance X wing or the original black and orange one would have been cooler desu.
>>10751023What's your top 10?
>>10751761Maybe they'll reissue it in those colors a decade from now when the nostalgic sequel apologia begins
>>107518049 armybuilders and 1 named character is perhaps the biggest clue that my picks were doomed to failure from the start, but sure, here:>imperial army guys from AndorMost obvious currently-missed-opportunity armybuild figure, they have almost everything designed already aside from the helmet, which would also be the same helmet needed for the>Mudtrooperanother seemingly obvious nearly-no-new-tooling figure people would likely buy multiples of regardless of liking Solo or not.>AT-ACT driverThe last trooper design we haven't properly gotten from Rogue One, and a truly zero new tooling figure.>Patrol TrooperAnother trooper design that's cool irrespective of the source material that I'd like to have with more than 7PoA.>Thrawn's DT sentry droidsWould definitely be stuck at the deluxe pricepoint but could at least be a big enough figure to justify that, these guys were neat and different enough from the mando Darktroopers that making them wouldn't be redundant.>Imperial Shock StormtrooperDon't really care about the first EAFront game, but the clone shock trooper has always been my favorite clone trooper so I want the stormtrooper repaint of it.>the other 3 purge trooper variants from Fallen Order/SurvivorHaving just the staff one hurts me a bit, these are easily the top 3 of the list for me personally and ideally on the VC45 body so they're not mismatched with the staff one I already have, these guys were more slender ingame anyway so the body works better here than it did for the average clone.>Darktrooper GideonThe suit was cool, it'd make a cool figure, and of all of these it's of course the most likely to happen eventually regardless of fan votes like this.Overall it's 7/10 repaints and/or minor retools and 3/10 actually new figures, which feels like a semi-reasonable expectation for hasbro these days. I think all of these would do well at retail, but obviously not as well as ANH Luke and Obi-Wan so they never really stood a chance in this.
My local comic shop had a sale with some good stock of Star Wars figures. I got these three, which were eluding me for quite awhile (mostly due to the prices). They must have dropped in price over time. It was nice to get them in hand.
20 bucks on Amazon.I haven't bought any star wars figures in a decade, worth?
>>10752269Obi Wan is a pretty good figure with all the modern articulation and that version has some decent accessories like the bag and the shawl. The Purge Trooper is alright even if it's not on the best body. Same with the Jawa. He's neat to have but if you don't have other ones to go with him he might not seem like much. Overall if you look at it through the lens that deluxe figures are $27 now, you are getting 3 entire figures for less than that which is a good deal.
>>10752314Alright, thanks.I got them along with that $13 paz vizsla figure.
>>10751427Yeah, I was able to get Nikto and the ones I previously mentioned for around 12 bucks each. His hips are pretty terrible, but a lot of the older Jabba figures are pretty lacking in articulation. Thankfully, I don't need them to do much besides stand around, drink and point their guns at each other.
I kind of like this look for him more that his original outfit. I haven't seen the show but this figure is fun in general. I also got the mandalorian that comes with the spider and I like how it's like a mini playset
