If anyone wants an Anakin for cheap or some custom fodder, Entertainment Earth has this bundle for $25.
>>8897500thanks for the heads up i was missing zorii and anakin so i picked it up, now what do do with that luke......
>>8897583You can always swap a different head onto that Luke body and repaint the jacket or pants. The good thing about that outfit is it's super common in Star Wars so it works for all kinds of characters.
I got my wolffe from EE today, now I've got every clone captain/commander, I hope they make Bacara next.
>>8897953I guess you mean TBS and not 3 3/4.
>>8897500That Anakin sucks ass. His arms are literal shit. Really annoying figure.
>>8897989I have this exact figure but I lost his skirt.
Got my Commander Cody today. He's definitely my new favorite trooper. Had to use Kiki on his legs due to them being kinda loose.
>>8898090I want that padme.
>>8897989>>8898032I found an image of it. He's in the bottom right. I used the phase 2 armor from my Fordo as replacement.
>>8898090Model kit Clonetooper is kino.
>>8898471They really need to produce more of them.
Why is no one mentioning this? I've seen plenty of dust kicked up lately over the misshapen helmet (thankfully, that's easily remedied) but that uneven cut at the bottom of the soft torso bit? Nothing. I've watched at least 12 different reviews of this figure, and while the issue is apparent in most of them, not a single person has pointed it out? Am I being autistic in thinking this looks like shit? And there is nothing that can be done about it either. Heating it does nothing. Stretching, twisting, pulling, tugging do nothing. Are Boba fans so fucking starved for figure merch that they'll lap up anything Hasblow puts out, or am I making too big a deal of this?
>>8898697And then there was this, which, if it wasn't so fucked to the point of ridiculousness, I'd be mad; instead, it's laughable at this point...
>>8898699>>8898697>Falling for the black series meme
>>8898699>>8898697Mine has neither of these issues. Sorry about your QC luck
>>8898734Well congratulations on your QC luck. The videos I looked at today showed figures with varying degrees of this, from slightly noticeable to fairly egregious examples.
>>8897346What's the source on the CW Obi-Wan?
Does anyone know where this Grevious is from?
>>8899093Looks like a Clone Wars Grievous, maybe one of the kids line ones?
>>8898697You have autism.
>>8899096No, it had way too many accessories for that. This guy came with damaged head and limbs.
Finally watched S2, where's my Black Series hot frog lady, Hasbro?
I keep finding Walmarts that don't even have Vintage on the planograms, it's just a single row of Black Series.So why the fuck are the stores that DO get Vintage still struggling to carry the fucking line? God fucking damnit.
>>8899349Mine all look like this
>>8899448Then why are you writing Hasbro Sucks on the pegboard like a retard?
>>8899345>Finally watched S2, where's my Black Series hot frog lady, Hasbro?Being a good frog mother to her tadpoles.
>>8899459Because HASBO SUCKS
>>8899345There are some Mando season 2 figure listings that popped up on some international Amazon sites recently. I'm hoping she's one of them. If not, well then I am going to grab one of the many peg warming Kuill's around me and get her headsculpt from Scoundrel's Stock to make my own.
>>8899474I mean, not really.
>>8899474Yeah.. I guess they do..
I think I want to get this guy and make him into a custom Sith lord. Especially with the hands, he could be just a pure Force user with no lightsaber needed (but I'm still gonna make him one)
>>8899490>Scoundrel's StockInteresting site. Wonder if their Bo Katan head is good. Man am I disappointed in the Black Series when I look at the Hot Toys
>>8899820I've seen a few people swap out their Hasbro head with the Scoundrel's one and it looks good but it's also a matter of having the skill the paint it well.
>>8899822Yeah I'd probably just try and commission a customizer.
Saw the new Archive wave at Target today. Guess those are out.
>>8898697>Am I being autisticYes.
>>8899839You might be able to get Rob at Scoundrel's Stock to paint it for you. He does pretty good work.
>>8899906That's a pretty good Palpatine head.
Is this new or just new to the Shop Disney website?
>>8899869I hope Amazon ships them soon then. I'm itching for some shoretroopers
>>8899942Already got mine from Dorkside. Plus got Deluxe Boba yesterday from Target. Plus I don't have to worry about Amazon ruining my packages, the way they have EVERY "collectible" they've shipped to me over the last year.
>>8900094God dammit what the hell. Everything I didn't order from Dorkside, it seems they are getting in and Amazon isn't, but the shit I did order from Dorkside, they don't have yet but people got already theirs from Amazon, GameStop, and even fucking BBTS.
>>8900119This is pretty much my whole frustration with having to pre-order so much shit now. There's no consistency on who gets what, when. I fucking want my toys now.
>>8900119That figures, yeah. I was honestly surprised to see them ship these so soon. Because that's definitely not typcial of them.
>>8899932it's old and boring.Star Tours speeder is best.Just look how big it is. Working doors, working lights, and it fits twice as many figures inside too.
>>8900094Fucking hell and here I am waiting on the deluxe boba from dorkside, I think I'm done with them after him. I went to them after getting burned on bly by bbts but almost every release this year has seen bbts send them out before dorkside.
Anyone else's Qui Gon get delayed randomly?
>>8900444yes, but it not all bad, I ordered two deluxe boba fetts from target yesterday and they shipped this morning so that was probably a couple peoples preorders they will never get.
>>8900353Yea something is up when them this year. I never had a problem in the past getting stuff. Sometimes it would be a few weeks late but not months. I can only accept corona as an excuse for so long when BBTS is getting shit before them. I wonder if they just had a large increase in customer base or they are only able to get so many cases at a time are waiting until they can fulfill all orders at the same time.
>>8900444Best Buy shipped mine and he arrived yesterday. Don't know what's up.
>>8900570Dorkside is a comparatively smaller operation than BBTS, and yes they have been hit with an enormous volume of business lately. DS is local to me, and a representative of theirs stops by one of the local toy stores here pretty regularly, having developed a close working relationship with them. Seems to be a good dude, and I think they have a good group of folks working over at Dorkside, but yeah I think they're really being tested the last several months.
>>8900588Well it's good that they're growing. I've always liked them and had good customer service experiences when there's been a problem. Hopefully they can catch up soon because I'd like to just order shit from one place instead of having to juggle multiple sites and gamble with who I think will get it first.
>>8899727 Cool idea anon.
>>8900588I hope they can weather the crucible, and emerge from their baptism of fire all the stronger.
>>8900570It's a real shame cause I like the ability to pay for a pre order when you place the order and their shipping is always quicker than bbts plus they don't inflate prices for certain items like bbts and actually put shit on sale for reasonable prices but when it comes to pre ordering I'll definitely stick to bbts from now on. Knowing my luck it'll flip and dorkside will start getting shit first again though.
Looks like my local Target pulled all the little Mandalorian packs with Cara and everyone else. The ones with the vehicles, I forgot the name of the line. Also, based Jar Jar is 30% off so I might go back to grab a few more.
>>8898753I definitely had the helmet warp issue
>>8900444Mine's coming today. Probably preordered too many since they never closed them.
>>8900588>>8900644Next time I'm up there, probably next week sometime, I'll ask the shop owners what's up, since the rep stops in there pretty regularly.
>>8900732Ended up going out and finding a replacement for mine today. Jet pack was much better, and so was the soft torso shell. That shell still has the slightest unevenness along the bottom, but it's not as noticeable. I can live with it. It's a fairly solid figure. And yes, both helmets on the two I've had came pretty fucked, but heat worked just fine.
Most of my wasted money of the last 2 months.Sorry for the lousy image.
>>8901039comfyhow much did you pay for those Mando multi-packs? They're not cheap these days...
Luke, did I ever tell you about jedai Knight Aayla secura? She was the most prestigious hooker in the temple with a smoking hot French accent. She would walk around the temple practically naked and myself and your father would have to hide our lightsabers under our jedai robes.Her midriff was athletic and built to take the blasts of six clone troopers back on Felucia.Sometimes master windu would gather the council and have Coleman Trebor eat out her blue asshole, before making terrible decisions about the fate of the order and the Republic.She was a top tier alien mommy, and she was a good friend.
>>8901125Cause very few people actually wanted jar jar and even less at 30 bucks, there was a pretty loud minority screaming that jar jar was missing but the character is still pretty much hated by the masses.
>>8901274>but the character is still pretty much hated by the masses.This is what Disney shills want you to believe.
>>8901125I'd get him if he was the same price as other figures, no idea why he has to be so expensivethey're never gonna make a black series tarpals are they
>TFW have more officers than just standard troops
- take the least popular character in a franchise that spans a dozen films, multiple tv programs, and hundreds of books, comics, and video games- give him a prop that he had in one scene- charge 33% more for it- ??????- PROFIT!
>>8901119$609.00 with shipping!Biggest toy purchase I ever made but I just had to get them.I would buy more Omega Squad loose but I am betting the "Bad Batch" will offer more super troopers since they already reveled Clone Force 99 goes rogue.Very much looking forward to that show.I think I am done with old stuff mostly considering all the new shows coming.
>>8901324>least popular characterUntil Disney made a trilogy with nothing but unlikable characters
>>8901360I would watch a series following Jar Jar around in his day to day life before I'd ever watch the sequels again
>>8901125Based Jar Jar finishing what Disney started
>>8901418I wonder if "The Acolyte" will have any decent merchandise?I won't watch it and sure as shit I won't buy a Brie-Shit on a stick.It's not like I won't like new characters. It's just that the characters will suck, They will go against canon all the while giving a shitty plot.It's all KK narcissisms. Maybe there will be a cool vehicle.
>>8900749He's here. Likeness is very good but the body is definitely showing it's age. Felt bad ripping open the 5 dollar shiny packaging but what you gonna do.
>>8901125I bought him on sale at GameStop a while ago and that was the only way I'd buy him. As a figure he's great but he shouldn't have been a deluxe release the way they did it. I would have gladly paid full price if they gave him an extra head with a different expression instead of those useless weapons however. Only good thing is it makes me think they're going to do a Gungan warrior at some point since they have the molds for the shield and whatnot now.
>>8901125>Yousa gon' be see'n meesa for a long time!
>>8901312Dont feel bad about not buying more than 1. Your collection is lovely <3
>>8901773$10 clearance Jar Jars sounds fun.
>>8901125They thought the kids that liked him grew up to buy toys. They actually mostly ODed in high school or became baseketball players.
>>8901784meesa can only gets so hard ani!
>>8901784I hate six inch, but I'd get Jar-Jar for ten bucks.
My backlog is getting out of hand again. Anyone obsessed with buying the toys but when it comes around to opening get lazy?
>>8901869Open up your toys Anon
>>8901039MicroMachines: great taste anon !
>>8901503I've got just about zero interest in the entire High Republic concept but if there's anything thst can be used for generic Jedi or Sith in a collection that would be neat I guess
>>8901997You're not interesting in transexual Jedi anon? Disgusting pig.
>>8901997I thought their weren't going to be any sith in the high republic stuff? wasn't it just supposed to be jedi going on adventures?
>>8902009Which one is trans?
>>8902031Im almost positive none are yet but these fucking neckbeards are so impossibly retarded theyre pre-triggered over the 'snowflake' agenda,Ironic
>>8902039>none areAlways two there are...
>>8902043I don't think being a Jedi allows for being transgender. The conflict alone kek.
>>8902085What I don't get is how a species that aren't even human follow the "societal construct" of gender enough to break it. And they're incredibly weird looking, I'm sure all the "non-binary" people love being represented as freaky looking aliens
>>8901551Yeah, I'm the OP with the delayed one. Saw a few in store today and considered it but eh, figure mine'll get here soon enough and I can't justify that additional 5 bucks twice. Passed on the battle droid for that reason, already have two red ones anyway.
>>8902095These niggas are evil
>>8902015I have paid very little attention to it so possibly
>>8902149First book is pretty good
>>8902043I wish the world would end already.
>>8901125>>8901773>>8901784>>8901789>>8901817Well, that was faster than expected.
>>8902266Right is so much cooler but isn’t worth the original price, glad I could get it for half off
>>8902015Acolyte is set right near the end of the High Republic. All the current book sand comics are set in the middle. So there's hundreds of years between them.
>>8898697Hasbro put some sexy, deal with it
>>8902095I hope these guys turn to the dark side so all the troons get triggered
>>8902278Disney forced them to put it on clearance, because they don't want people buying any figures from the Lucas era, they want people to buy only their new sequel shit
>>8902095>they're incredibly weird looking
>>8902043>Terec and Ceret
>>8902334Kek they look like sith
>>8902043>>8902095These niggas evil. All in the eyes.
>>8902043Even Star Wars can't make Trannies look normal.
Why don't you guys talk about lego SW?
>>8902488>Lego blind minifigures are $5 a pop now.>Worse, they're in boxes, so you can't fondle for what you want.
>>8902359Nothing wrong with a little incestuous sex between twins
>>8902529>We are the Brothers Paradox>And we like to suck on each other's....
>>8901869Also did thrawn and Sabine to get through my rebels characters, not pictured is Zeb, only missing chopper now
>>8902690>actually collecting Disney shitTell us what it's like to be the mouse's bitch
>>8901125At least around here, they sold just fine the first two times they stocked them at our Targets. For a lot of these releases, I feel like they overestimate the amount of stock needed, and stores always get one or two cases more than will end up selling, which is why all of them that hit shelves during the third wave still shitting up the shelves and getting clearanced at my Targets.
>>8902802Tell me what your dad's dick tastes like
>>8902831Better than the mouse dick you suck
>>8902802Whats it like being so fragile and dickless like you? Afraid of the mouses' huge cock? does it scare you, do you simply just hate how much control the big mouse COCK has over your life? awwwww so sadgrow the fuck up and quit crying over fucking STAR WARS
>>8902690I hope they do later season updates for them at some point. Blind Kanan with the mask was my favorite look and Ezra just looks better with the short hair and proper clothing.
>>8902908ngl I didnt get far into rebels my girlfriend just bought me these because she knew i collect black series and they were cheap
>>8902912It's worth a watch all the way through at least once. Not without its faults but I didn't regret it after putting it off for so long and being butthurt over TCW being cancelled for it.
>>8902915I haven't been putting it off so much on purpose as its i have so many other things i rather watch and I usually only watch tv with my girlfriend whos only into live action stuff and whatnot so Ive just never had the chance
>>8902917I feel you. I basically just watch everything during the day while I'm working and I'm home alone. Although surprisingly after this past season of The Mandalorian, my wife expressed interest in finally watching TCW and Rebels so she can get the connections.
>>8902921My gf only got to season 4 of TCW before losing interest, she says we'll pick it back up before bad batch but I'll see when that happens
>>8902923That's probably further than most of them get. I hope Bad Batch doesn't suck. But I also kinda hope it does so I don't feel compelled to complete the team. I only ordered Hunter so far
>>8902924> I only ordered Hunter so farI got hunter and the shadow clone already, still looking for crosshair and already pre ordered wrecker, even if i dont like the show I really like their designs so fuck it
>>8902926I like them too and probably should have ordered the elite trooper, but I couldn't add another thing to my order for the month since I had so much shit already releasing at that same time. Figured I'll take my chance in the wild with them
Is there a good custom recipe to make Leia in this version?I imagine you can use most of the Jyn body but I dont know about the gloves or the head. I seem to remember an anon doing that some time ago but I guess I didnt save those pictures.
>>8902359Tomax and Xamot somehow gave off “gay energy” and “we’re straight but we’re never having proper sex voluntarily” energy at the same time.
>>8902954That Black Series Padme that clearanced out everywhere
>>8902488>too expensive>SHFs and other imports cost over sixty bucks on average, six imch crap cost twenty-to-thirty bucks, and 3.75 inch cost fifteen
>>8903093Figuarts are pretty shitty for the price too. Only a few of them are actually worth the price.
>>8903049But be cleared out pretty good. I've never seen her anywhere on shelves.
Did the boiling trick on the two Fetts I got from Target. Pretty pleased with the results.He’s a good figure now, I just wish they put a wash on his jumpsuit and gloves or something. The old ESB black series had one, why couldn’t this deluxe have it?
>>8903365Because prices have gone up over the years. They're trying to match a price point while keeping costs "cheap" for collectors still.
>>8903365Looks good. First pics I’ve seen that make me actually want one. Do you have the mafex and figuarts? Any chance of a comparison between the three if so?
>>8903365god he stil has those shitty plastic jointn caps to loop the wires to. Can't they just make those rubber hoses?
>>8903416Rubber rots, so no.
>>8903365>>8903416Yeah it’s annoying, they’ve been doing it for every Fett since 2004 with the VOTC.I don’t see why Hasbro couldn’t just make plastic hoses that plug into hidden holes up in the tricep sorta like Mafex did with theirs. It’s the most logical design. Don’t have to worry about rubber rot or snapping. They gave him an all new “shirt” piece and helmet design, why not give the guy some new gauntlet hoses?
>>8902908I'm waiting for the same thing. I wasn't a huge fan of the Season 1 look of most characters
>>8902954Val has gloves that are similar although there are some extra greebles in them.
>>8903427it's also easily replaceable, those shitty caps are made of brittle plastic that rots worse and has the added detriment of weakening the male end of the joint in the bicep. >>8903447>I don’t see why Hasbro couldn’t just make plastic hoses that plug into hidden holes up in the tricep sorta like Mafex did with theirs. It’s the most logical design. Don’t have to worry about rubber rot or snapping. They gave him an all new “shirt” piece and helmet design, why not give the guy some new gauntlet hoses?who knows with them, probably 1/18th of a cent cheaper to mold the arm in 6 pieces rather than 4 and not use string or rubber for the hoses.
>>8903492That's a good idea, anon.I'm actually using that body with the Bespin Leia head as a placeholder. And I think I have the Padme stored away somewhere, might be time for a kitbashing
>>8903516Post pics when you're done. That BF2 look for Leia is one of my favorites and I've also been thinking about making her at some point. I already used Val for another custom but maybe I'll grab another one
>>8902278Still too much
>>8903587It's a legit good figure dude
>>8903590$20.99 is still too much for a shitty Disney creation
>>8903610At least put some effort in your trolling
>>8903782At least get better taste Disneyfag
>>8903610>>8903813You know Jar Jar isn't Disney, right? Just wondering if you're a confused zoomie.
>>8903826All Star Wars is Disney faggot
>>8903610>>8903813Just... move on. Why stay and be perpetually butthurt? Just go and do a different thing that you actually like. The Last Jedi is a great movie.
>>8903845kill yourself disney tranny
Do we have any toys of these guys?
>>8903876Those guys literally only exist as toys
>>8903885Are you sure? I could have sworn I've seen them somewhere outside of toy form? I've been into SW for almost as long as I've been alive and I don't remember ever seeing them as toys
>>8903900They were specifically created for that set, at a time when Hasbro was giving Mace a bunch of purple stuff, so they made a purple interceptor, a purple astromech, and purple clones for him. They haven't appeared anywhere else.
>>8903900Probably just saw fanart of them
>>8903913huh, weird. I remember my dad telling me he like the clones in purple the best because that's his favorite color. He is a pretty casual SW fan, so i have no idea how he knew they existed.
>>8902954Endor leia could be a good place to start. Maybe Jyns jacket also? The endor trio are well worth picking up either way
>>8903927Probably saw them on the shelf at the store one day.
>>8903365Still has uneven slant on torso cut.
>>8903932>>8903926I looked it up and these guys existed in Legends. Even then, they don't have much info on them. Does canon Mace have his own clones battalion?https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/187th_Legion
>>8903945Check the sources at the bottom, dude.
>>8903945In canon, Mace sort of had Ponds and the 91st Corps, but it seemed like he wasn't their specific general the way Anakin, Obi-Wan, Plo, etc. all had their own specific legions. It seemed like he just had them on the rare occasion he went into battle but otherwise they were assigned to other Jedi.
>>8903945>>8903958Toys are a weird situation on Wookieepedia, since at one point Leland Chee (back when he was still head of continuity) said some toys can be considered part of EU canon, and naturally Wookieepedia took it on themselves to just make an article out of every toy they could even if it had zero relevance to any continuity anywhere. Lots of characters/vehicles that only existed as toys have articles for this reason.
>>8903968Kinda like how Yoda would roll with the red guys and green guys. I think they were both so high up that they were at the temple more often than out in a war theater that they didn't have dedicated legions.
>>8903958I did. Only toy stuff. >>8903994Oh. Any other examples?>>8904059Are Yoda's guys green? I know he was on Kashykk with Gree during episode three.
>>8904080Yes and no, Yoda tended to go with Gree and his legion, but those are technically Luminara's troops
Blacked Series Mara Jade when
>>8904113I think they meant the 6" black series
>>8904113It's so bad too. That Peg Bundy hair.
>>8904200I hate how the oldest Mara figure still has the best face sculpt & paint job.
>>8904099>>8904208If the latest set of EU figures doesn't sell, no fucking chance we'll get more
>>8904113Kitbash your own with Marvel Legends parts and SWBS accessories.
>>8902802Rebels actually gets good when Ezra gets his haircut.
>>8904214What happened? Hasbro used to make EU figures all the time back in my day.
>>8902278At least Hasbro can justify making Tarpals since they already have a gungan mold.
>>8904267>Rebels actually gets goodHow does it feel to be so fucking stupid?
8904277>NOOOOOO YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BLINDLY HATE DISNEY WARS. REMEMBER THE LAST JEDI ?KYS, faggot. It's Been years and you people are still screeching.
>>8904275Tarpals was the hero we deserved
>>8904271Disney bought the star wars ip and threw out the eu and is pushing their cannon but it seems they finally realised that Finn and Rey aren't selling so they bait us out with the odd eu figure from time to time when they aren't repacking peasant Anakin and queen Amidala
>>8904312Yeah, but they don't even do Disney Wars EU characters. They exist.
>>8904214Honestly the only one I'm sure will sell will be maul, bucky is a bit obscure and ugly as fuck looking with his realistic look, luke is a basic as fuck repaint with a single new accessory and the "jax" figure isn't completely correct as either cannor jax or kir kanos. It's a fucking shame too cause a properly painted cannor or jax would have been an instant buy for me but I ain't slopping up hasbros shit with this lazy as fuck inaccurate repaint.
>>8904318They're probably wary of doing anything disney with the amount of peg warmers disney shit produces. It's a shame too cause cool designs are cool designs, like even if that character you posted is from some absolute trash story I'm sure it would still sell cause it's a cool imperial design or whatever.
Bestbuy giving out $10 coupons in their email promo. Today only. Go check to see if you got it. Used mine to get a black series battle droid.
>>8904301that was probably one of the worst TCW episodes.
>>8904343Plus she's adorable. Pale black hair, blue eyes is a great combo.
>>8902954I saw one with the cream jacket taken from the "resistance" Rey/ Episode 7 end/episode 8 figure.
>>8902266The one on the right scraps off the paint on your troopers feet when ever you put them into the sides and take them out
>>8904353Plus short hair which is the thinking man's choice, if she were made though including a helmet would help her sales although I'm sure hasbro would cheap out on that
>>8904318Human characters and/or characters that aren't outright "badass" don't sell. Not even the darksaber could save Gus Fring from shelf warming
I'd love a Black Series podracer. If they at least made Anakin's then not only would it give us a little Annie, but they could reuse the engine mold to make a Cobb Vanth speeder too.
>>8904379Gideon is the only figure from that wave that I don't see peg warming
>>8904404Yea gideon's and odd choice for pegwarming, I've seen quil and greefs which I can't say is surprising but gideon's the main villain and comes with the dark saber so Id be surprised if he was peg warming.
>>8904404>>8904409It's all anecdotal, but every store I went in the past couple months have had 2 black men and the midget. Saw armorer once and bought her, not a Rey in sight
>>8904409I'm surprised by how few evil Reys are on pegs.
>>8904421Everyone wants a goth gf
>>8904421I think people buy her because it's a figure of a female dark side character, rather than because they specifically like Rey
>>8904409Same here, Rey and the Armorer go quickly, Gideon seems to sell a little more slowly but does sell through, while Greef and Kuiil hang around. Though even those two seem to be slowly disappearing rather than becoming lingering pegwarmers, at least around here.Archive Han and Luke seem to sell pretty poorly too.
>>8904429She catches a lotta use in instagram fanfic, I'm sure
>>8904438If you're going to write a novel, the least you can do is leave space between dialogue.
>>8904208To be fair, the two in purple had a hood-goggle combo accessory that they could wear, which they looked better in them.
>>8904470That's the only one I have. I ended up buying and returning 4 different packs before I got a Mara with a halfway decent face.I really hope we get a new one. I'd love her green dress, but if we even get another Mara, it will probably just be this >>8904113 with a new head.
>>8903940They all have it to some degree. I feel sorry for the sad summabitches who ordered online and won't get to look over theirs and pick the ones with the least severe case of it.
>>8904113She looks like a fucking muppet.
>>8905330>TFU>soulLook, I get what you're going for but you could use a better example
>>8902954Fuck, I'd love a figure of this Leia.
My cluster continues to get fucky. Picked up the Bad Batch guy last week, and he's really great. Got Bo Katan yesterday and likewise great.
>>8905486>almost entirely Disney shitLiterally what is wrong with you
>>8905486Good stuff anon, Greef Karga looks pretty good there. Curious why you didn't get SHF Mandos though
>>8905486Great stuff, there's a lot there but it doesn't look clusterfucky. Love that patrol trooper from Solo.>>8905532Not them, but I got the first SHF Mando and was thoroughly disappointed. SHF has been really shit lately.Waiting for the Mafex Beskar Mando
>>8905495>9 Lucas figures.>14 Disney Wars figures.(Keep in mind suspenders biker scout is Disney; Bo and Hunter are Lucas)>>8905506I wish Kotor got a line half as good as TFU did. They chould have each come with a pack in gizka.
>>8905533I feel like I could put up with the finickiness for the nicer paint and hand options. Mafex doesn't come with the jet pack or wrist rocket effects, which I find cool. Could just wait for more releases though, spear and all
>>8905495Cope.>>8905532>>8905533Thanks. I'm still on the fence with Greef. He's fine overall, but the rubber cape is kind of killing me. The Patrol Trooper was a real surprise. It's loaded with well-designed joints and an overall terrific sculpt--even has a green tint to the paint on his goggles.I only have the SHF stuff that I've got up there because I managed to get them cheaply in the /bst/. But I'm pretty happy with the two SWBS Mandos I've got.
So is all Mandalorian armor made of beskar? Was Din Djarin too lazy to give it a paint job like everyone else, or was he really the first guy to think "this dark metallic finish is sick, I'm keeping it stock"? Does he just come off as a total noob to other warriors for having it unpainted?
>>8905538I'm glad it didn't. KoTOR is trash and should be forgotten.
>>8905762I figure all the shiny metallic armors are beskar, Boba Fett's just an asshole who paints it to look like plastic to lure opponents into a false sense of security.Conveniently, Jango Fett was killed by a blow right in between the beskar plates of his armor.
>>8905849How did I forget about Jango lol, he painted his visor I guess. Looking at it, the color is pretty cheap looking, maybe it's not "pure" beskar
>>8905762Some is made of beskar, others is durasteel (or at least it was in the old canon). Obviously he wasn't the first considering Jango also had the chrome look aside form the blue on his helmet. I imagine Din didn't paint his yet because he was probably more concerned at the time with just moving on with another job and probably didn't want to take the time to do it yet. Although he clearly had painted his armor before, so maybe he just ran out of that color and didn't want to go to Space Hardware to get some more.I imagine season 3 is going to have him add some paint to his armor, just as an excuse to get us to buy another figure of him.
>>8905869>get us to buy another figure
>>8905869I always figured Din's original armor was hand-me-downs and scavenged bits, considering he was living with an offshoot tribe that lived in a sewer. His right pauldron is clearly taken from a Shore Trooper Squad Leader.
>>8905762I know Lucas and Filoni wanted Death Watch in TCW to be more uniform, and not just a bunch of OC donutsteel Bobas. I think armor detailing might just come down to; A: Whether you're in a standing regulated army or are more freelance/militia defense of your clan; and B: personnel tastes. Sabine loves drawing on stuff, but I don't think Mando really cares about color coordination, going by his first loadout. You'll also notice Heavy Mando has mostly 1 armor set in blue, but the yellow stuff looks to be of a different style.>>8905869I haven't even been able to find a figure of his season 1 episode one armor in the wild yet.
>>8905762At one point all Mandolorian Armor was Beskar, but it was something you had to earn. After the Empire, Beskar was somewhat rare and hard to get ahold of so most Mandalorians had armor made from other materials if Beskar wasn't available. Its also part of why handed down Family Armor was kind of a big deal. As for Din not painting his armor, the colors Mandos paint their armor have meanings and Din might have just not had an reason to paint his armor yet. Given his attachment to Grogu and having to let him go he might add a color or two in the next season.And Din wasn't the first guy to just stick with the unpainted Beskar look.
>>8905937>"Grogu Green" Beskar armor
>>8905977He adds Yoda years.
>>8905977Green actually might work honestly, but Boba already as green armor so maybe not.Gray = Mourning a Lost LoveRed = Honoring a Parent or leaderBlack = JusticeGold = VengeanceGreen = DutyBlue = ReliabilityOrange = A wanting of life(The following are non-canon)Purple = LuckPink = Respected or Respecting SomeoneWhite = PurityBrown= ValorMaroon = PowerErin (Light Green) = A Lust for PeaceScarlet - Crimson = DefianceSilver = Seeking RedemptionYellow = Remembrance Teal = Healing
>>8906001>all of the above
>>8906028Dajin Djarin's Amazing Technicolor Dream Beskar
>>8905915Parts of it are definitely from shore troopers. I think his helmet was entirely his since it seems so barebones compared to other Mandalorians and was the only piece not painted. His torso and leg armor could have been hand me downs. It's kinda interesting that Axe Woves has the exact same armor as Din's original set.
Anyone else want black series figures based on the mcquarrie concept art?
How do you guys think the writers will no-prize their way out of a 3rd Mando season ? Now that they cant acknowledge rangers, grogu, or ahsoka I thought they might focus in on the tension between djarin and bo-katan. Hell maybe they could end the season on a greater cliffhanger where djarin's clan goes into outright war with the loyalists. At the same time, I could also see filoni doing what he did with rebels, and just using the opportunity to focus on a different aspect of the universe during the same time frame.
>>8906140McQuarrie vader is so perfect. The fact that he doesnt even have a red saber almost makes him more menacing.
>>8906115>Be Bo Katan.>Finally going to hunt Gideon down and reclaim darksaber.>Only bring one other person with you, and out of Mando's crew, you only know him.I hope this was a budget restriction, and not a writing lapse.>>8906118That would be cool, but they can barely keep up with the on screen figures as is.
>>8906158I have an absurd fascination with OG starkiller. The idea that Anakin, Luke, and Obi Wan were once the same guy is fascinating. I wish they'd do more with that proto-continuity.
Seeing as Mando was based on holiday special fett, what are the chances we'll see djarin either become or face off against a mando who's based on mcquarrie fett?
>>8905486Anon, you have some great stuff there. I can't wait until I get my hands on Bo-Katan too. Man, she looks like such a fun figure
>>8906188It's possible he could face them considering the Imperial Super Commandos used the concept Fett design. Pretty sure if they head back to Mandalore in season 3, there is going to be some sort of Imperial hold out there. Especially since the line about "anyone who goes there, dies" is most likely referencing the Duchess weapon.
>>8906224Someone could also have the undercover Obi-Wan helmet.
>>8906224I had actually considered this myself after binging rebels recently. Id be up for it, but Id be left wondering if general audiences would be up for a mandalorian jihad. That and I'd like to see some other things explored. Like what became of Rex, Wulf, and the others following ROTJ. In revisiting the concepts from kenner's the epic continues, I thought it would be interesting if it were implied that rogue clones colonized some bum fuck planet and began causing trouble as clone warriors.
>>8906242The obi wan show seems like its gonna suck but I really hope it doesnt. Just based off the premise, I thought it would prove entertaining to see a middle aged ben moonlighting as Rako Hardeen again. Maybe fight some crime on tatooine whenever he's not keeping an eye on baby luke.
Am I insane for hating the mold on the right? I just found out that wider SW toy community consider it to be good. I've always hated it.
>>8906391I liked the toon body because they have more range of movement, and the removeable helmets usually fit better. I'd prefer if all the Star Wars figures were in movie style, though.
>>8906391What do you hate about it? You aren't required to like something that's aesthetically different if that's what you're worried about.
>>8906271It should have just been a short series that focus on obi wan reflecting on his life and all that’s happened but KK didn’t want that
>>8902415I really love the "normalization" agenda... I mean these fuckers are obviously crazy.
>>8906224>Especially since the line about "anyone who goes there, dies" is most likely referencing the Duchess weaponWow, I didn't even think about that. This has me pretty excited
Well, my walmart actually had something for once.
>>8906508It was the first thing I thought of when he said that line. But I had also just watched that arc from Rebels so it was fresh on my mind. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense since Gideon was on Mandalore during the great purge.>>8906512Lucky. I hope you grabbed that Boba if you don't have him already.
>>8906411>>8906408Aesthetic isn't the problem. It's articulation. Sure, it looks show accurate, but it has no ab-crunch, hip, ankle and shoulder articulation.
>>8906527I don't and I didn't.The paint on the helmet was crappy; the black visor was spilling out of the lines in some places, and not filled in at others. Leia's face also had some paint spotting. >>8906590I never got the phase 2 TCW troopers. I didn't know they started to skimp on the articulation; because my Rex, Wolffe, and ARF Trooopers all have ab crunch ankle, and shoulder articulation. The ARF has the same kind of hips as your left clone.
>>8906685They started to skimp out on articulation much earlier. One of the phase one Rex's can't even bend his knees.
>>8906140Does concept art Vader have a blaster holstered in his right thigh?
>>8906931He does. And the Stormtroopers had lightsabers.
>>8906942I remember the saber and shield-wielding stormtroopers, but I guess I never saw enough concept Vader to see the blaster. It would be kind of cool to see how he would’ve used the blaster.
>>8906960I'd imagine he'd only use it when he needed to kill something from far away that isn't shooting at him, or if he needed to capture someone alive personally.Lightsaber + gun combo would be pretty useful, even if you weren't multiclassing.Vader is more machine now than man, so I doubt he'd go full gun kata like Anakin.https://youtu.be/QG_kNw-Kwjc
>>8905857>maybe it's not "pure" beskarIf nothing else this would explain why he ended up with a dent on his helmet
>>8906987>that slide at 14 secondschad af
So Kuill's just a prop, right? He's not really worth getting unless you're a completionist?
>>8907191Yeah he is also a lot bigger then he is meant to be for some reason
>>8907194Maybe we'll get a properly sized one in a two pack in a few years
I got Boba Fett (black series) in from Target, I think he's quite damn nice.
>>8906997But what if something made of Beskar hits something else made of Beskar?
>>8907191He's a fun alien which we don't get often, but not much else. Can't even really hold his gun well.
>>8907191I'd say just wait and see if they release him with a blurrg in the future. The figure is okay but nothing super special by himself, especially since his paint is pretty inaccurate. I'm going to get one or two when he goes in clearance just to have some small bodies and Ugnaught heads for customs.
>>8907496He's kinda an alien in name only though, like I bet there's a short old person on this planet that looks like just like him
>>8907290>mandalorian series finale>djarin gets shot in the head with a beskar bullet>it is the only thing that can pierce his beskar helmet>it doesn't kill him he just loses all his memories
>>8907981>that cape texture>that face printno they wouldn't do a fucking 2.0 before releasing the 1.0 would they
I gotta say, after looking at the Black Series Ventress outside of the hasbro preview images, she looks greatit keeps to her depiction while also making it realistic
>>8908005Nah they'd wait for everyone to buy it first. Which you should, cause a 2.0 would take another year and a half at least.
>>8908008Great, I'm so glad your favorite Disney character gets your approval
>>8905495> :'( boo hoo stop looking what I don't like!
>>8908145You're trying too hard mate. Gotta be more subtle with that bait.
>>8908189>point out that Disney character is a Disney character>le baitHow are you this retarded?
>>8905762Was the name Din Djarin actually said in the show at any point? I seriously can't remember
>>8908211In the first season, I think the Moff says it when they are cornered In the tavern
>>8908189Wasn't Ventress made by George Lucas, with a bit Feloni in there?
>>8908220AOTC artbook says she was developed to fill Count Dooku's role, before Lucas settled on Christopher Lee.Bounty Hunter took all the art and made Komari Vosa inspired by it.When the comics and novels were gearing up for clone wars content, they needed to have more than just Dooku for everyone to fight, so they went back again to the AOTC concept art and made Ventress proper.Lucas would eventually do his own take on her for TCW.
>>8907981Looks like bill murray
>>8908193Still trying far too hard
>>8908211Moff Gideon announces it when they're trapped in the cantina and then the Armorer says it when she's telling IG-11 to carry the jetpack for Din.>>8908220Yes, but her first appearance was in Genndywars.
>>8908560>>8908211His name is Mando
>>8905762Traditionally all Mando armor is beskar, it's just painted to either match your clan if you're part of something dogmatic like Death Watch, or for personalization.Some of Din's covert probably had durasteel like he originally did, though, due to the Mandos losing their access to the metal when the Empire took Mandalore. It seems enough of them had beskar for the Armorer to stick around and salvage the armor of their fallen on Nevarro, though.
>>8908255Holy shit, you’re right!
>>8907742Ah, yes, the ending to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
>>8908610Last name; Dough.First name; Man.
>>8906419Christ this is just going to be disney wars flavored picard isnt it?
>>8908905I don't feel as nervous about it since Chow is running the show. She is pretty capable of directing good Star Wars content. Chapter 3 of Mandalorian is still probably the best in the series so far.
My boba and qui-gon arrived today.
>>8909454>Boba, be careful! You got mustard on your blaster.
>>8909454>>8909456Qui-Gon looks great, especially with the robe
>>8909001She's a woman. She's incapable of directing good content. Obi-Wan is guaranteed to be shit.
>>8901869Yeah, I get that way sometimes. More so I cant decide if want to keep them in there plastic prisons or not.
>>8904271>03 Grievous in pic. My cock is suddenly erect.
>>8905330>TFU Your taste is simply outstanding.
>>8909454I need this Qui-Gon
>>8910455here you gohttps://www.bestbuy.com/site/star-wars-the-black-series-qui-gon-jinn/6443680.p?skuId=6443680
>>8901341Wait, $600+ for the Mando packs or everything?
>>8901341dang, nice!I've spent like $450+ on toys during the past couple months but that's just because I live in Europe and everything's expensive and supply is nonexistent. (Still waiting on some "pre-orders" to be fulfilled...) That said, it was a great feeling after a few years to get to open up a few Vintage Collection figures!The Bad Batch seems like an interesting show and like the obvious continuation of the Clone Wars without being labeled as such. Here's hoping we'll get some nice accompanying 3.75" merch...
>>8910466Not him, but thanks Anon. Best Buy has Mace and him in my area. I might pick him up today
