Re: The Vintage Collection Returns!!!!!

Does anybody know what made Hasbro change their tune on SA 3.75" figures? Were they holding back because the films were coming too quickly? Were they holding back because of their exclusive deal with Wal-Mart? Are sales of the 6" line declining so much that they needed to change their focu...

Re: The Vintage Collection Returns!!!!!

I think the $13 range seems okay​ as long as we are talking premium figures, with smart case assortments and 75% or more in each wave are new figures. As for costs going much over that... with mass retail, production should be higher. And retailers also competing for business. So, those factors sho...

Re: Black Series: 3-3/4" Scale Figures General Discussion

At TF Hasbro talked about how a story has a beginning, a middle, and an end and all. Since 6" and 5 POA have come out, Hasbro seemed to always release 6" and 5 POA stuff first and then a few months later allow the 3.75" SA stuff to trickle out. It's possible that is still their plan. ...

Re: Would the return of TVC really do anything?

At this point, I wonder if Hasbro's strategy is to wait on TVC stuff until the film hype dies down and then bring it out again. There have been rumblings that we will see something 3.75" TVC this year, but I wouldn't be surprised either way. At this point, Hasbro seems to be looking at the main...

Re: The 12th Trial - RISING DEPTHS - POSTED!

So, where do I start. Great episode, once again leaving us wanting for more at the end. I loved the sets a lot and I think this time the colors, which are perfect, really stand out. I'm interested to see where these all leads and who the Maker might be (assuming we've met him already).

Re: Has distribution gone downhill? Again?

Hasbro needs to sell the bulk of their figures to the stores that have toy departments. If they sell too many on their website, then they'll begin competing directly with their customers. The last thing Hasbro needs is one of the big stores cancelling their account.

Re: Black Series: 3-3/4" Scale Figures General Discussion

I was lucky that the TVC wave with Ponda Baba hot pretty heavily here, so I picked up a few extras. He's a great figure for customs, especially with the swivel waist. The sandtrooper is really nice as well. I will probably pick up an extra Tusken as well.

That's a good idea for a 2-pack. Is it coming in the fall then?

Re: 6" Black Series Centerpiece Assortment

In the picture it looks like there are other pegholes in the front, so maybe you can change where the figure is or add another figure to it. I think the concept is ok and the base looks really nice, but the price tag is something that just bothers me. I understand it has lights and sounds and all, b...

Re: 3.75" Black Series Titanium Figure Assortment

I think the idea of a figure with a base and a nice background picture is a great idea. I just wish Hasbro would have gone with plastic, SA figures instead of this route. I've been reading for months about how many collectors in the US don't want to pay $13 for a TBS 3.75" SA figure, so why wou...
