I've had some pretty good luck with bootlegs so I ordered a shadow guard, coryscant gaurd, FO praetorian and 2 phase 1 clones from Ali express. The photos from Ali showed they were the new body clones but I'm thinking I might be getting the old body ones. Has anyone gotten bootlegs of the new bodies for clones or Stormtrooper yet?
>>8911596I wasn't aware there were any on the new bodies but I'm curious now. If they show up as the new ones, post about it here. I want some for customs
black series sucks and they don't feel any where near as fun as the 3.75 figures
>>8911987Pretty much this. Having taken a hiatus from collecting before everything went to shit, I was surprised when I got back to the game to discover how crazy people were and are about the 6" line. Personally I'm surprised that it didn't flop like so many other "alternative scale" lines.Anyway, I was curious but not that curious, until I saw some BS figures getting clearanced. Grabbed a few, unboxed one and while said figure is nice, I'm 100% sure the 3.75" version is nicer. Like, they're cool, alright, and have a lot of articulation, but at the end of the day they're still too big, too bulky and there isn't that much that they can interact with. Just look at how many vehicles exist as 6" and then compare with the 3.75" selection, and do note that 3.75" vehicle selection isn't anything like what it once was.Pic related: the 3.75" version of one of the figures I got.
>>8912465>>8912528The Duality of Man
Gonna be getting the Ventress black series on the 29th, she can stand proudly with my other action figures
I keep trying to order a Qui-Gon from Best Buy but every time I get to checkout it closes and says my cart is empty. ;(
>>8912871Means it's sold out.
I'm late to the Mandalorian party and want a beskar Mando. Do I pay late tax on SHF or late tax on the Black Series? Or should I wait and see if Mafex comes back into stock once it's released?
>>8912937I don't think the SHF or Black Series are worth paying aftermarket prices for. You might have luck with the Mafex if you check Amiami or Amazon JP around the time it's being released.
>>8912937Black series mando is available for backorder at GameStop if you don't mind waiting for it till August.https://www.gamestop.com/toys-collectibles/collectibles/figures/products/star-wars-the-mandalorian---the-mandalorian-the-black-series-action-figure/11100178.html
>>8913028The fact that both of them need work pisses me off, but I've seen some pretty great shots of the SHF with a neck extension. I'll wait for the Mafex unless it gets delayed again. >>8913031>AugustBy then I won't care
>>8912937Mafex looks like the best one so far and it will more than likely be restocked once it releases, if I were you I would hold out for it.
>>8913069>I'll wait for the Mafex unless it gets delayed again.Has there ever been a MAfex that didn't get delayed?
>>8913099I think their earlier releases around 2015-16 were mostly on time, but ever since then it's customary to add 5-6 months to a release date. Hopefully the delay from December to May was enough for Mando.
>>8913099it was already delayed from december to may
>>8913069>all that joint >walking pose
>>8913126Looks good and natural though, Black Series joints are too clunky to do that
>>8913126Shoulda had him dabbing and fardding, ti shoe off the posing cavabikities.
>>8913164Are you okay Anon?
>>8911987The Problem with the Black Series figures is that they have the sculpt, paint, accessories and articulation of a 3.75 figure but are 6 inches. The only thing I feel that gives the 3.75 inch figures a edge in being more "fun" is that you can get vehicles for them. the 6 inch line isn't really very feasible for that outside of the occasional speeder or speeder bike.
If they continue with the phantom menace like they did with the 40th ESB I'd like to see>Naboo soldier>child anakin>queen amydala>watto>ki-adi-mundi>droideka>>8913164did you just have a stroke?
>>8913180Everything but Ki and the droideka would probably end up binning
>>8913180Watto and Sebulba are my biggest wants.
>>8913189do people even care about Mundi that much?
>>8913194He's a jedi we haven't had a lot of figures of, so maybe.
>>8913189Why wouldn't people buy a ep.1 Padme? Those are her best outfits.
>>8913166No>>8913180I’m trying to poop, and having some troubles
>>8913237Her best, most standard look was already sold and it's still available for retail price after years.
>>8913245>Best>Doesn't include the tummy rip, and claw marks on her backDoes Hasbro not realize that they can make the maroon coat outfit, and then reissue it with alt heads as a handmaiden army builder later?
>>8913258Probably why the SHF is upwards of $300. But I don't think anyone's clamoring for handmaidens to fill up a display.
>>8913267I've been wanting updated battle queen and handmaidens since back during the original TVC run. I admit nowadays they really aren't that high on the priority, but back then we were getting so many obscure figures, it seemed like a reasonable ask.
>>8913267>But I don't think anyone's clamoring for handmaidens to fill up a display.Yeah, but if given the option, you'd be surprised how many people would do it. Or hell, a rather blank female body is pretty solid custom fodder too.
>>8913180I'd like those too along with any of the other podracing characters (although it would hurt to not have their podracers).
Have any of the people who do custom parts made pieces for Wat Tambor?
>>8913180Man there...really wasn't a whole lot of interesting characters in Episode 1 was there. Like thinking back on the Prequels and what would be cool to get a figure of now, there really isn't much I can think of from Episode 1 that I would ever want.
>>8913366Not that I've ever seen. You could always commission someone to make stuff for him. They could make him into like 3 pieces, the whole lower body, the upper body consisting of the metal chest thing and then a head. You'd have to find some arms if you wanted them to be articulated, or just have them be static but still plug into the torso.
>>8913617What about the guy in that spacesuit-looking thing with the skull face inside?
>>8913617>>8913648I looked the character up. I literally googled “Star Wars background character in spacesuit”, found some images of him, then found his name. Apparently his name is “Rum Sleg”. He had a toy made of him in 2009, andthe toy is actually pretty cool! He has some cool accessories, and his helmet his removable. Apparently his skull-like face is actually some kind of ornamental faceplate/mask he wears under his helmet. The faceplate isn’t removable, so his true face remains a mystery. Without his helmet on, his mask makes him looks kind of like Jason from “Jason-X”.
>>8913648>>8913617Aurra Sing likewise
>>8913667My favorite thing about Rum Sleg is that they originally filmed him walking with another dude, and then for some reason Lucas didn't like the other dude and had them digitally erase him, but if you look closely you can still tell Rum was supposed to be chatting with someone so now it looks like he's just talking to himself
>>8913314Black Series Sebulba with pod racer.It would be a dream.
>>8913157>>8911987Based Anons. I have this same figure. BLACKED series cucks will never know such joy.
>>8911987>>8912019I grew up with 3.75 inch figures (35 years old) but I couldn't disagree more. 3.75 inch is cool and has way more charters (currently), but it won't be that way for long. I actually feel bad for people who collect TVC and other stuff since it's heading in this direction. I grew up with POTF2 but the Black Series truly hits that sweet spot for me. Not knocking you if you feel that way though. I get, the scale does has its own charm. I am just all in on 6 inch Star Wars figures
>>8914572Wishful thinking. Modern Hasbro doesn't have the balls to make lesser known and EU characters in the six inch scale. Just give up and join the superior 3.75 inch master race.
I knew he was gonna be small, but damn
>>8914276Makes me think he's either crazy or minorly intune with the force, Im surprised he isnt spoken about more often. Meanwhile everyone still gives a shit about the Crimson Corsair despite how shit the sequels were.
>>8914913>Giancarlo Esposito, age 62, 5ft 7"And people tend to shrink with age
>>8914913I for one, am glad to have some manlet representation on my shelf
Is there a reason to vote for anyone but Ahsoka?
>>8915056I want TVC Tank driver for cheap, please vote for him
>>8912937I could swear ToyDojo has a beskar Mando in stock on their shelves, but it doesn't appear on their site. At least, they did a week ago.
>>8914975Pedro pascal is just a couple inches taller, figure must be a stunt man
Repainted my Qui-Gon (his eyes, lips and mustache were all printed off-sculpt) and slapped a robe on him. I think he looks real nice now.
>>8914941Honestly I've never understood the appeal of Ithano. All I can think of is that it's because his mask looks kind of Grievous-like but beyond that he had a bland and kind of dorky design. I don't get why everyone thinks he looks badass.
>>8915182Looks very nice Anon
>>8915210His mask was actually appropriated from a member of Grievous' speciesBut I think the appeal is that he's got a decent look for how bland the sequel aesthetic is, and he seems like just about the only character in thst timeframe doing anything remotely interesting.
>>8914536Based 3.75" poster.
>>8914913His head makes me think of a Q-tip.
>>8915182Really like the way the robe looks on him. That's a standard BS one, yeah? Been thinking about getting another Mace just to get one for Qui Gon.
>>8915463Yeah, standard BS robe. I usually dislike it a lot, but it drapes really well on him for some reason.>>8915240Thanks anon
>>8915056Everyone seems to have forgotten that exact Ahsoka was in the Walmart TBS 3.75 line a few years ago and pegwarmed but I guess they're doing faceprint this time so it counts as "new"Frankly I want the Weequay more than any of the others, TOR shit can fuck off
Anybody get the headsculpt out of the helmet of the new 6 inch Boba Fett? Any tips/tricks? Trying to do the boiled water method and it's getting loose but not pulling out.
>>8915549Twist the head
>>8915529She never saw the light of day in my area; it was mostly the Lando and Ackbar wave that clogged pegs enough that my walmarts never ordered any new figures.I hate how so many of you found her and a bunch of the royal guards and death troopers for $5 each. At least I was able to get her for a few dollars off from an online sale.
>>8915155John Wayne's grandson is usually in the Mando suit for most of the scenes in the series, which is why when Pedro was rumored to bitch about how hard it is to act with the suit on was laughed at by almost everyone.He's 6', btw
Post things BLACKED series cucks will never get.
>>8915659>>8915673>>8915692Wow the pictures are almost as small as the toys themselves
>>8915692God I miss those days.
>>8915727It felt that it would never end. The toys kept getting better and better, and we kept getting more and more variety in the character and vehicle selection.
>>8915727>>8915754Products had to sell themselves cause there was no big movie/show to carry them at the time, right?
>>8915767TCW started airing in 2008. Previous year was the 30th anniversary, leaving 2006 the only year without any big movie, series, or landmark.That's one thing Lucas was good at, was keeping the brand alive in between touchstone events. Disney's Lucacfilm can't even get product out when the actual shows and movies are on.
>>8915780Was the Clone Wars popularity as big as say Mandalorian? By 2010, I feel like general public saw Star Wars as having run its course and dwindling out.
>>8915805>By 2010, I feel like general public saw Star Wars as having run its course and dwindling out.Huh? No way dude. Star Wars was still going strong. Clone Wars kind of had to rev up in popularity, but people were still madly buying the toys. I got to do the Midnight Madness at TRU for the launch after stocking. It was a ton of a fun.
>>8915754I think maybe eight more playsets used those same parts
>>8915815Most normies and the kids who grew up with the PT might have moved onto other things at the time; but TCW hit right at a time for a new generation of Star Wars fans.You got the 70s & 80s OT generation.The dark times to special editions generation.The PT generation.The Clone Wars generationfinally the Disney Wars era generation.>>8915817I know there was also a bunch of stuff you could attach to it:http://www.rebelscum.com/sw03dlxsbdbuilder.asphttp://www.rebelscum.com/sagadxc3po.asphttps://www.rebelscum.com/sw0304padmedfc.asphttp://www.rebelscum.com/sagadxgeonosian.asphttp://www.rebelscum.com/sw03ssGWR1.asphttp://www.rebelscum.com/sw03ssGWR2.asphttps://www.rebelscum.com/sw0323wattambor.asp
>>8914253Oh yeah, I forgot that she was even in the movie.
>>8915628Who’s 6 foot? The stuntman/suit actor or Pedro?Also, does anyone find it funny that Pedro literally has a Pedro mustache? As in Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite
>>8915966Due to the ownership of the darksaber coming into question; (It technically still belongs to Darth Maul, since Ezra & Sabine just stole it from his home without an honor duel) the title of Mandalore comes down to a vote. Bo Katan gives a passionate speech that seems to have won all of Mandalore over.Din steps up to the podium and introduces Yeed, who proceeds to break out into the big dance number.Everyone cheers.Din is now known as Mandalore the Reluctant.
>>8915980Fool! This would mean that Yeed is the new Mandalore
>>8915966The stand in is 6 feet tall.Also, mustaches for people in South/central America are a source of pride, because it proves they have european blood in them, because natives couldn't grow facial hair.
>>8915991Mandalore the Eggsellent!
>>8911987>>8912019It might be nostalgia/getting older, but there was certainly a carefree nature to 3.75 figures. They were cheap, small, and plentiful. 6" has been nice for the past 6-7 years since I've switched, but it's kinda given me an autistic obsession with articulation. I didn't mind the T crotches too much back then, but nowadays, I don't even consider buying a figure if it doesn't have ankle rockers.
>>8916038Is the reason why their mustaches are so “petite” (sort of like a teenager who first hit puberty) because of their genes, or because they groom them that way?
>>8916149yeah, they grow fuzzy shit like an arab woman because of their genes. As for grooming, as far as i know, native americans only liked thick legs and sloped heads. But since they mostly molded that using boards and cords, they're only as successful as South Koreans in becoming pretty, since plastic surgery allows uglies to breed.
>>8916089its not autism, its tthe exact opposite, bigger better toys in every way, why would you ever want to go back or downgrade. 3/4 fags will always remain mad that they can't afford larger scales because they all have the brains and hands of children.You actually managed to grow up
>>8916162I have a feeling you’re not the guy I asked.
>>8916163TVC Boba Fett is just fine right out of the box.TBS Boba Fett helmet needs to be reshaped, and because he comes with an extra gun that can be pulled in half he costs $10 more. Despite this, he has less paint detailing than the previous Boba release, so you'll have to paint the wash on yourself. May as well buy the bandai model at that point.
>>8916177Why would you think that? because you think only central and south americans have traits they like/hate?
>>8916198The way you type, verbiage, things like that. The previous reply not starting with a capital letter was a major clue. I could be wrong, but then, who cares? It’s a thread about toys.
>>8916163>better toys in every wayBLACKEDlets aren't seriously this delusional are they?
Someday maybe Hasbro
>>8916247That would make the pp into the B I G PP
>>8916247You'll get a mostly hunter sculpt clone commando in the gaming greats line so they can charge 5 extra bucks and you'll like it
>>8916273And he won't even come with the armor piercing or sniper attachments.
>>8916180TBS boba has almost double the parts count from its previous version. This is where you extra money is going. the previous boba doesn’t have “more paint” it actually has less when totaled
>>>8916221 I could be wrongYep, you're wrong.
>>8916852>soulless, overpriced import trashGTFO and get some taste.
>>8916888Why was the bandai model comment deleted?It's not a statue, and I, in fact would very much like to knoe what it's like to have one; but they have yet to send in the supers.
>>8917005It’s because they are Hascucks.
>>8916888>soulless, overpriced, domestic QC ridden trash Low taste better than now taste.
>>8917005>>8917086It contained racist content.
>>8917005Beats me, I didn't report it or anything.>>8917130>overpriced If memory servers me right, Legacy Collection was about eight dollars.

First time fan vote for TVC will happen today after livestream. Will be updated packaging and photoreal deco if applicable:Ahsoka TanoTRO Republic Trooper RO Tank DriverStar KillerWeequay
Oh look, another "vote" that is just rigged to re-release Ahsoka for the thousandth time.
Razor Crest photos going up today using what should be the final piece. Also updated LucasFilm 50th will continue throughout the year. More announcements will com on Fan First Friday May 4th
>>8918338Why do we have to vote on one of five highly desirable figures? Why can't they just do all of them? Voting Weequay anyways
>>8918338Commando will win. That figure costs too much, people want it.

Who's this lame bitch?
This franchise is so dead

>>8918362They're going up on Pulse and fan channels up today at 5pm EST
>>8918358Has there ever been a precedent to a franchise of Star Wars' magnitude dying?

>>8918338Nobody wants TORtanic

>>8918372You mean all of them are dropping at once? I was certain that the gaming greats stuff would be an exclusive of some kind.
>>8918338>implying anything but the tank driver (which probably still pegwarms in some stores) or Ahsoka have any chanceThere's no reason to re-release either of these figures which have seen multiple releases in the last few years other than sheer laziness and being cheapskates. Which is why they'll "win". The two that everyone would want and will actually win vote, Starkiller and the Republic trooper, have no chance. Weequay is whatever, I'm sure the 80's kids want him because they always obsess over the Tatooine aliens for some reason.
>>8918371Sorry. Gotta recall more Cara Dune figures before we can do that :)
>>8918386I couldn't hear Anon, sorry. I was screencapping and posting but I'd just check GameStop to be safe since they have the Gaming Greats Black Series.
>>8918391Combat Assault Tank Pilot was pretty hard to get. It's the one thing I am missing from the tank itself. I have the Commander and the 5 POA pilot. I would love to have it myself
I can’t be the only one who wanted a old man Rex figure
>>8918391>Weequay is whatever, I'm sure the 80's kids want him because they always obsess over the Tatooine aliens for some reason.Or because they want him for the skiff you fucking moron
>>8918407What, all 10 people that could afford that shit? Who cares?
>>8918404You arent, hell we still need a classic rex if we're being honest. As happy as I am to get zero, we're missing alot of clone wars main stays and general alien weirdos.
>>8918404I would buy it. Sadly, I don't even have the Clone Wars Black Series version
>>8918414If you can't afford $50 (frequently on sale for $25-$35) then maybe you shouldn't be collecting toys at all, dumbass. Unless you actually have a disability and think that skiff = barge. Why are you even here if you don't know anything about Star Wars?
>>8918371It took us until this year to get characters from season 1 so it'll probably be the same for season 2. Boba is a definite, it's just a matter of what version because they're probably going to change his look for Book of Boba, which will also give us a chance at him. The Darktrooper is a no brainer for them especially if they're paying attention to how many people are buying the 3D printed kits for $75 a piece. The only reason Koska Reeves is getting out so early is because she's mostly Bo-Katan reuse.
>>8918383I prefer SWoTOR over both KoTOR games.
Where my Molach bros at? White Worms unite!
Just got a notification from Amazon that my Shoretrooper from the archive wave is supposed to be here Monday. Nothing about the others from the wave though.
>no star wars on pulse earlyget fucked premium buyers, I guess.
>>8911368Why the fuck waste slots on admiral ackbar and royal guards rereleases when they already rereleased those back in 2015? Also i want the weequay for the fan vault
>>8918876Ackbar is insulting, he was in the Walmart releases, he doesn't need to be released AGAIN so soon.
>>8918371They're saving it for May 4th duh.
>>8916089What is the best TVC RoTJ Final Duel Luke?
>>8918876>>8918889They said the reason for that whole wave and the choices was to get them released to the global market. They're trying to focus more on that in the future.
Everything is up on pulse now, stuck at checkout.
Zero and Tech are up on Amazon. No Aurra Sing yet but looks like we have their codenames.
I ordered the TVC stuff on EE just in case, they haven't gone up on Amazon yet. If they go up on Amazon I am just going to buy them there and cancel the EE order, I fucking hate them
>>8918989Weird I wasn't able to see them from searching for "star wars vintage collection" thanks fren
>>8918989>Zero and Tech $19.99>Aurra Sing and Koska Reeves $22.99Wtf?
>>8911368How do i vote for the TVC fan vote?
>>8918989So are the gaming greats fan channel only? No Amazon or brick and mortar release?
>>8919040I think so.
>>8919063I think that was what the guy said on the livestream but I was skipping through it quickly so I didn't hear for sure. I don't really see the point of releasing them like that but whatever.
>>8919040I think fan channel only. Even GameStop doesn't show them
>>8918989Thanks Anon. I don't need to run like a chicken with my head cut off to get the figures I want.
>>8918956So we have to get stuck with another wave of worthless rereleases just because some europoors dont have those exact figures. Fuck hasbro
>>8919102I wouldn't sweat it Anon. They said there's going to be more TVC announcements throughout the year. You'll get more toys, calm down.
>>8919121It just pisses me off, ever since they released black series shit 9 years ago it slowly but surely sidelined the proper 3.75 lines. A look at todays panel perfectly illustrates the problem with star wars products, a ton of new TBS figures and only a few rereleases for TVC, and theyre not even rereleases of hard to find or requested figures at that. Like hell would it kill them to rerelease something like the assault tank commander or the nikto guard?
WHERE IS MY 6" MARA JADE
>>8918316So they made that awful repaint that Paul at JTA kept saying everyone wanted and needed, and that THIS WOULD SAVE STAR WARS. Why the fuck would anyone want this? I don't want it. It's extremely niche shit from a recent Disney movie.>>8918327Why bother?>>8918209Pass>>8918218Was an awful figure the first time. Unless that's a new head I'm passing on that one too.>>8918229I could use some more of these guys>>8918244I'll buy it, but it's a lazy repaint.>>8918255Buy>>8918261Buy>>8918338They should be re-releasing all of those. What a gay fan vote. Weequay will obviously win when it SHOULD be the Republic Trooper.
I hope these wires don't break on Zero
Running change on TVC Boba Fett. This new one has the lights sculpted on his chest, which were missing on all the first releases.

>>8919189Yeah I don't see the point of a vote when you already have all the molds.
>>8919323Looks like someone posed this with their feet.
>>8918321Do these maroons not read the vader comics? So many good character designs with no plastic love. Jedi, sith, bounty hunters... Why they gotta be so cheap and lazy?
>>8918371>Dark TrooperBlows my mind that this isn't happening, like... anywhere. Hot Toys have one for pre-order and that's it? No TBS/TVC, no Lego, no Mafex or Figuarts? They're perfect action figure bait, nerds like us would army build the shit out of them.I just don't get business, I guess.
>>8919470Disney is pants on head retarded
>>8911596Waiting for bootleg lots of Roger Rogers. I haven't seen any on Ali or eBay.I never had as many clones as I do now so I was never interested before.
>>8919470They fucked up with Grogu, and now that's all they'll push
>>8919389There's a lot I would buy from the comics. I was hoping we'd get more than Aphra and her droids by now. They need to start doing waves of 10 figures at a time.
>>8919470I do agree. A Dark Trooper would be a slam dunk on so many levels. It would please EU fans and Mandalorian fans. You could make them for TVC and the Back Series. Why Hasbro hasn't jumped on this is beyond me
He needs rerelease.
>>8919470It's still weird to me that Hot Toys is the only company putting out certain Mandalorian characters. You'd think Bandai and Hasbro especially would be pumping out figures.
>>8919927I am one of the few people who are meh to the Force Unleashed games
>>8919884It’s probably in development but like most things Lucasfilm hasbro probably didn’t know about it until the designers watched the episode they debuted in
>>8919997The story is ridiculous but you gotta admit some of the designs are great
>>8920079I get that, it just comes off as fan fiction to me. Some of the character designs are nice. I would love a Juno Eclipse figure
>>8920043I think you might be right. Hopefully we'll get it soon. I am just afraid it will be by the time Season 3 is gearing up (or after it started)
>>8920043>>8920112I'd say that's most likely the reason. I also think they may be slower on releasing some figures now because they want to only have to make the molds once and so they wait until they see the final design instead of going off concept art.
Like fucking....where? For the both of them...
>>8920210Never. Smiley will make sure you get more shitty repacks! Not even a New Hope Han and Luke! Fuck you! You can have Hoth and Endor versions again!
>>8919470>I just don't get the point of another Endor Han
>>8920210Probably May the 4th announcements. Especially since Fennec is in Bad Batch
>>8920210So why would Boba care to go back and take Jabba's place? And if he could do it so easily, why wait years to do it?
>>8920210probably gonna be announced closer to the release of the show
>>8920237Getting his armor back gave him the confidence to B.E. himself
>>8920237Cause he wanna wanga
>>8920251Oh yeah, why'd he take so long to get his armor back? Was he in the sarlacc pit for years?
>release gaming greats line for the TVC>not including Starkiller>have to vote for him insteadfor what purpose?
>>8918889>>8918956I get the argument that since the TBS 3.75 re-release of Ackbar that pegwarmed hard was Walmart exclusive, that there were markets that never got him. The problem with that is that back when he was first issued in a wide TVC release in like 2011, he was also a pegwarmer. There aren't a lot of people left who still need this Ackbar, so re-releasing it when there's a ton of other figures that could be re-released that didn't pegwarm or saw such poor distribution that nobody saw them. It's even more insulting that they're putting several of those figures that people have been begging for up to a vote, but an Ackbar re-release nobody is asking for takes a slot.
>>8920163I agree but fans will always find something to bitch about
>>8920347You can get him on eBay for less than the price of a brand new TVC figure. There's no demand for Ackbar right now.
>>8920386But this one has new paint!
>>8919692>Black KrrsantanYou're a person of taste and substance
>>8915980Mandalore the Unifier because those sick moves will bring all the clans together in awe of how rad Yeed is.
>>8919692>>8920409>other Krrsantan fansMy niggas, now there's an EU character I could see making an appearance and satisfying lots of fans. You could set up alot of future stories with Krrstan too, since he's effectively the boba fett of wookies. It'd be neat to see Mando compete with him over a bounty, or alternatively, have to team up with him to take down Bossk and a hive of other trandoshans. It's not something I've seen get much lip service, but I like the idea of Jabba's death leaving a massive power vacuum in the galaxy's criminal underbelly. I could see everyone from Boba to Bossk and Dengar rushing to take advantage of that. Maybe the boba series will follow that premise.
>>8916247It's bretty gay how sidelined clone commandos will be once the bad batch are in full swing
>>8920328The gaming greats line is pretty much a dumping grounds for easy repaints to hasbro. They dont want to have to work harder than that. Otherwise, we likely would have received some clone commando figures amidst a slew of other vidya specific characters like starkiller.
>>8920681Yea I'm kinda hoping that's what BoB is about. I also think they could have sworn characters show up on a prequel comic about Mando. It still seems weird to me that Din seems to have no idea who Boba is. You'd think being a Mandalorian bounty hunter himself, he'd be aware of the most infamous one in the galaxy.
>>8920702Sworn= some. Fucking phone posting
>>8920702I figure that with Din and his particular sect of Mandos being so isolationist, there's probably a ton of shit he's never heard of. He had no idea what a Jedi was and those were still around in his lifetime. Plus Boba's been out of action and presumed dead for about 9 years at this point.
>>8920702>>8920716Yeah I had the same take on Din and his clan. I effectively see Din's clan as mando-amish folk. It was a very smart move on filoni's part to do this as it brings a certain freshness to Din's character. Not knowing shit about the greater universe around him and turning him into a bounty hunting ubereats driver of sorts makes Din kind of relatable in a roundabout way.
>>8920716It's only been 5 years since ROTJ
>>8918338Voting Weequay, but it physically pains me not to vote Starkiller. Very close second. All the other ones can fuck off.
>>8920702On the subject of BoB, who do you think would be first to take on old Boba? I think Dengar is really overdue some screentime, as I cant even recall him showing up in clone wars much and I really like him in alot of EU shit. The idea that he's effectively a cross between mean machine and dirty harry makes him both very menacing and equal parts interesting. You could get alot of people interested in him if you outright referenced his story from tales of the bounty hunters.
>>8920729Oh right, I forgot it was 9 years since ANH not ROTJ
>>8920725True but still, you'd think someone around him would have made a joke or reference about Fett to him. Especially in his younger days where he was running around with his Twi'lek girlfriend and that crew.>>8920734Dengar for sure. Especially if they can somehow work in something about how he becomes this monstrosity.
>>8920744Before meeting grogu and cara, I dont seen din as being particularly sociable. He probably stuck close to his clan most of the time prior to taking up bounty hunting. As for Dengar, you cant be serious that's meant to be him. TROS is such a cluster fuck Im inclined to believe you.
>>8920687but Jango Fett was a named character that was re-released with a new coat of pain. It's just kind of baffling that we need to vote for Starkiller when the Gaming Greats TVC line has a figure of a Shadow Trooper from TFU even though it probably didn't appear in the second game (never played it passed Kamino). That slot could've been the AT-ST Commander or something.
>>8920766Update>it's actually meant to be dengarWhat the fuck man
>>8920766>>8920771It's not. Pablo Hidalgo got cheeky and wrote a summary of the character that implies he's Dengar after years of abusing plastic surgery but it's clearly a joke about how the character's recycling pieces of Dengar's outfit. People took it too seriously and threw a fit, so Pablo implied it again in a followup book to troll them.
RIP in peace Prince Philip
>>8920785For as gargantuan of a piece of shit as TROS was, Neo-Palpy was an absurdly fun thing to see. I almost wish the entire movie had just been about him. The universal monster visuals along with his revamped design felt like something ripped out of that battlefront 4 concept art. Speaking of which, if diamond decides to continue their star wars figure line that would be a good angle to cover star wars from.
>>8920079>Ridiculous That’s not how you say based.
>>8916247That’s never gonna happen. I’ll chop my left testy off if it does. That’s how sure I am. I would love it too, but considering we haven’t even got 2.0 clones/arc troopers/clone variants it’s safe to say that‘ll be (if it ever fucking happens) light years out, anon. Fuck Hasbro.
>>8920785Nobody wants anything from those movies. Hasbro isn't even trying to make shit from it. That Dark Rey was probably some mandate.
>>8921145>Dark Rey was probably some mandateA mandate that sold well.
>>8921159>that sold wellHahaha no
>>8921076Hey, anon, you know what would be funny and unfortunate?
>>8918731That Jar Jar looks like he’s tired of everyone’s shit.
>>8919031I don’t even see Koska listed. Fuck I missed out.
>>8921197>Meesa hear about how poodoo meesa is for twentsy yearsa and den dis huge o'ting poodoo Sequelsa comes along...
>>8920259He was really into vore...The Sarlacc even made my PP a little hard back in the day.
Is there no retailer left on this gay earth still charging 20$ for these stupid figures, which is what theyre WORTH?!?!! What the hell!!
>The one single day I don't check the thread is the day they finally put out a TVC purge trooper after almost 2 years>AND a new shadow trooperBe honest with me /swg/, how likely is EE to actually fulfill the preorder if I didn't do it right when it went up?
>>8920256Yess I de wanna wanga booba
>>8921205Sebulba porn for me.
>>8918338> We have 5 incredibly desired figures we could re-release with 0 changes and they would sell out instantly> Let's make 1 availableI thought Hasbro had a major fetish for reusing parts? I assume they're doing this to protect the collectors market but then why do any rereleases at all?
>>8920210Probably once the show is on the horizon. I imagine they're going to get Mando / Obiwan figures out of the way first. It would be dumb to release Boba if you're then going to re-release him when he gets his show, although that does sound like a Hasbro move.
>it’s a Paul write another article that’s nearly identical to his other TVC bitching articles I mean I get it I really do, but Jesus Christ. I think I’m going to stop reading JTA.
>>8921758I stopped reading a long time ago. The only reason I put up with his gay bitching was because JTA legit used to have actual breaking news and occasionally decent rumors. Apparently Paul used to have an actual source within Hasbro who is either no longer there or no longer contacts him, because his "crystal ball" shit started getting really vague so that he could point to any news that even remotely resembled what he predicted and go "SEE WE REPORTED IT FIRST"But it's been years since he's gotten any real scoops. Other sites are much faster on the draw now, and the only thing JTA has going for it now are its image archives, but there's other sites that do that as well.
>>8921758What is your obsession with Paul? Jesus fucking Christ, you're as bad as Crimson Commander.
And I thought Din's helmet was big
>>8921834NECA April lookin ass
>>8921836Fuck yourself, troll.
>>8921837Lmao every time
>>8921822Sort of like what happened to Rebelscum.com, like 15 years ago they were THE site for SW collecting news, then they just kind of faded out. RS was never obnoxious like JTA though.
>>8921845Disney brought out the worst in all the major sites.
>>8921852I hate Disney too but I don't know how this is their fault
>>8921881How isn't it their fault?
Paranoid about keeping the helmet on too long cause of what happened to my Jango.
>>8921889Well for one Rebelscum's decline happened before Disney
>>8921938It snapped like a NECA
>>8921938Nose flattened a little, and also developed a bump in the middle of the visor. It was the first release, so the face isn't a big loss, but I wish they'd just do separate heads.
>>8921916I wish the helmet was an entirely separate head. The hair doesn't have the proper volume because it has to fit in the helmet.
>>8921946Is there an actual reason why the different divisions at Hasbro can't share techniques? Marvel Legends solved the helmet problem ages ago by doing alternate heads, why on earth are Star Wars teams still doing removable helmets?
>>8921950More fun/immersive for kids? No extra head lying around if you want them helmeted? I don't know, I'm sure it's similar to the whole "no double jointed elbows on Black Series" thing.
>>8921943So you hamhanded it.
>>8921949Doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would, it fluctuates in the show a bit. I don't know if I feel like spending so much on two new custom heads for her
>>8921971There he goes again! Too easy!
>>8921916>>8921949>>8921987Oh wow, a shitty Disney character has a shitty figure? What a shocker.
>>8921916>>8921949>>8921987Wouldn't be a problem if they used doll hair.
>>8922082That would be way worse
>>8921321They should still fulfill it but it will just take a month or so longer than everyone else in my experience. That's what happened to me with some other stuff I have ordered from there in the past at least.
>>8921949The eventual TVC release is almost certainly going to come with swappable heads like the buildup pack Din Djarin after the great feedback they got on that
>>8922382I'm super tempted to start buying TVC again, the Mandos are exceptional from what I've seen.
Is Sasha Banks on Amazon yet? I don't see it.
>>8922512She was but she's sold out. Here's the link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08T68XTYP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
>>8922512They were all up yesterday. Probably sold out so they hide the listing. The only one showing up is Zero.Also if anyone ordered the new Boba Fett from Dorkside, I just got a shipment notice for mine so seems they are finally sending them out.
>>8922517Damn, and she's the only one too
>>8914913So with everyone else present, I guess Gideon isn't too small. Mando's just a big guy
>>8922403The only bad TVC Mando is the plain beskar one that they made completely the wrong color for some reason
>>8922553Dark saber looks pretty cool. Got pictures of anyone else holding it?
What's going on with this Mando? Ive had the fucker pre ordered for months. Lol
>>8922963Mafex just being Mafex
>>8922950I like it a lot, the effect they went for works very well.
>>8923013>Gideon making a bet with Dinkek
>>8918338Oh fuck, I want that republic trooper. Shame hasbro is limiting it to only 1 for some reason, considering the rest are rereleases.
>>8918244>TVC gaming greatsHasbro PLEASE give us a decent revan already.
>>8923044We shouldn't have to vote, that should just be the next wave, dammit!Remember when the fan vote actually meant something, and we could just ask for whatever the hell we wanted, instead of being forced to choose from a small group of predetermined figures?https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2011/09/01/hasbro-announces-fans-choice-poll/
>>8923048>wanting decent thingsYou'll get cheap repaints and like it!
Retroblasting made a good video!
