Re: Black Series: 6" Scale Figures

Damnit, the 6 inch line gets a Holdo, and nothing for 3.75? Hasbro needs to stop doing this - still waiting for that 6 inch TFA General Leia in 3.75!

Re: Yak Face coming in 2019

Great news, based on the sculpt, will he have a softgoods cape? - i hope the coloration is more toned down compared to the POTF2 version. If he is being released, Sim Aloo will hopefully be out in 2019 as well - lets get these OT fan favorites out of the way.

Re: Retail Sales, Clearances, Etc.

Well just saw the forces of destiny figures for $5 at WalMart they had quite a few... Mostly Jyn and Sabine (big surprise?) Also just found a jaina solo at Gamestop only one I've seen in person they wanted $25 (but the jumpsuit Leia is $20!?). My debt was declined needing $9 more... I honestly just...

Re: Sail Barge - Funding Needed by April 3

Interesting way of offering a fan favorite vehicle that might not do well at retail. Didn't the original petition only get 3000 interested collectors though? How are they going to reach 5000 paying collectors? If this doesn't make it out, I hope they do a creature pack and include that Ithorian skel...

Re: TVC 2018 Figures

Those packs sound great, but I'd be happy with a single figure once a year based on classic animation. Give fans a Vlix for example and it will bring collectors that abandoned the hobby back with a renewed interest in TVC. It may also lure in some of the classic collectors that love vintage Kenner.

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

You guys clearly have it worse in other countries when it comes to price and distribution. The only thing you can do is wait for those prices to drop or find alternate suppliers outside retailers. I don't collect large vehicles, but I really wanted that Poe from the Ski Speeder, so I found one onlin...

Re: TVC 2018 Figures

I'd like to see them explore classic animation, as I loved the Kneesaa figure and animated Boba. Morag would be at the top of my list, as I have wanted that character for years.

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

The best thing for any collector to do is pay what they feel is reasonable - no one should feel pressured into supporting a line or company. Ive felt items were too pricey for what you get at times, and left them on the shelves. There is nothing wrong with waiting for a sale, thats how the market wi...

Re: Solo: 3.75" Figures Revealed

They look pretty good, I'm just not into the whole concept of this movie and the actors as of yet, so I have no hype about the figures. Qi'ra doesnt even strike me as a SW character, she looks like something from Blade Runner. Not knocking that movie, I love it - she just looks off. Don't get me sta...

Re: TVC 2018 Figures

Bodhi was hard to find around here as well, but I doubt he'll receive a SA 3.75 figure. He never struck me as a fan favorite or a character with that much demand beyond a single release. I honestly think RO feels pretty complete when it comes to figures. I could see them doing Merrick in TVC, or per...

Re: TLJ Purchases and Finds

I bought a Chewie today just for the Porg :?: I was indecisive on that purchase. The Porg looks a little too long, but I guess I just had to have a Porg. Speaking of Porgs, Hasbro should have made different versions of these and packed one with each version Luke and Rey as well. It just seems weird...

Re: TVC 2018 Figures

I agree, at this point in my collecting, I have little interest in buying rehashed characters anymore. Diversity of characters has always been what draws me in. I'd like to see fan favorites that have never been produced from the OT, along with CW and Rebels characters - for example, where the hell ...

Re: Where does the hobby go from here?

The licensing fees are crazy, and that gets passed to the consumer - so the greed on the part of Disney / LFL is one of the reasons the prices aren't more reasonable. Basic figures should be closer to $6, and SA 3.75 closer to $10. Hasbro can afford to release 12 inch figures for $10, so there is a ...

Re: Ewok Love

I think the hate for them has dissipated at this point, considering the large demand for them before the ST. Likewise, I think Jar Jar replaced the Ewoks as the top disliked SW creature, lol. Hasbro really gave us more than I expected, I wonder if during the lull after Solo if they'll produce any ne...

Re: Collection Inventory

Years ago, I use to print the list of figures from the photo archives and check off what I have...last time I did that was after ROTS. I have been thinking about doing it again, but this time thinning out my collection at the same time.
