Re: Solo: Recent Acquisitions

I got around to purchasing a Rebolt w/ Corellian Hound - considering retailers have cleared most of the Solo line out, I figured I'd never find it at retail at this point. I was able to nab one for a few bucks under retail, shipped via ebay. Glad I went that route, because this set is not one to be ...

I think in some cases its an upgrade, but with others, it frankly makes the figure look odd. Almost like everyone is wearing blurry makeup. Its probably better suited for larger scales. It doesn't warrant a re-purchase for my collecting needs - after so many years of collecting, I cant buy minor cha...

The pricepoint is nice, because this line is going to offer collectors the opportunity to own mint versions of some of their favorite characters, instead of spending the same amount (or more) on a beater. If you want an original Kenner version, in excellent condition without yellowing, paint loss, a...

I'm going to try to replicate the theme Hasbro is going with: 1.) ROTJ - Death Star Throne Room: with Sim Aloo & Emperor 2.) ESB - Yoda's hut: with Yoda & Bogwing creature 3.) ROTJ - Jabba's audience chamber: with Cane Adiss & Jawa w/ fan 4.) CW - Dathomir temple: with Talzin & Spide...

They may have moved them to a different part of the store, that's what they did at a local WM near me. Brickseek will tell you if there are any left in stock and what the clearance price is at each store. Oddly enough, a store 15 minutes away still has them for $25! I think some locations just want ...

Found the Force Link 2.0 device on clearance once again, this time at WM...for $1 - this might be the cheapest I've ever found a SW product that had an MSRP of $29.95!

Ordered from Hasbro Pulse, and received Yakface & Klaatu. I'm floored with how well Yakface turned out - he is easily the best figure to come out of the TVC revival in my opinion. If this figure was in wave 1, collectors would have been knocking down the doors at retail to pick him up. Its great...

I only need Vedain out of this set, but I'm excited to be getting him. Perhaps I can make a Doallyn custom with the Brock Starsher figure? As with the Jabba's Palace playset, I'm hoping we get to see some more 3-packs. There are quite a few skiff guards left and it'd be nice to see Hasbro offer mor...

I am shocked and thrilled. Cantina, mos Eisley, Death Star, cloud city and more are possible. This is a great thing to see. They should do a Death Star throne room next with a SA Emperor and Imperial Dignitary Sim Aloo, and they'd be knocking out the other top OT characters that ranked highly on th...

I haven't seen it confirmed officially yet but I saw someone post that what was seen would be the only ones produced. Again, not official. Just listened to the Hasbro Q&A again - while they couldn't discuss or confirm future waves or other releases, they did not say the retro series is limited ...

Thought I'd post this here for anyone worried about the health of the 3.75 scale...A Hasbro rep said in no uncertain terms regarding 3.75... "its obviously the heritage scale of Star Wars, we're definitely not walking away from that scale at any point in the future". That should be clear t...

This is a genuine surprise, and a welcome one for many collectors. I wish it contained a new figure, as that would certainly tempt me into buying one, even though I don't collect playsets. If Cane Adiss were packed in, I'd be all over it.

I waited to comment until we saw images, and there is no mistaking the carded figures, especially with the intentionally worn cards (which is a graphic) and huge sticker. Overall, I think this will be a positive addition to the market, as it will allow casual collectors and fans to buy retro sculpts...
