TVC 2018 Figures

With the upcoming TVC stuff coming, we ought to have an offical thread in this section for discussion... so let's get that going. :)

So it appears in the first wave, we will see the following...

2x Supreme Leader Snoke
2x First Order Stormtrooper
1x Hoth Rebel Trooper
1x Sergeant Jyn Erso
1x Kylo Ren
1x Rey (Jakku)

...if that's the case, it's kind of a mixed bag. Hasbro would done much more fan service (and for retailers) if Jyn and Rey we're dropped in favor of two per case of a brand new alien from the original trilogy, such as a new Hammerhead or even repacked one each of Ree Yees and Sergeant Doallyn.

This line needs to ensure a very healthy mix of aliens, droids, background weirdos, etc. alongside the troops and main characters.

I agree that the line needs to be diverse, but i have no problem with the repacks since i never got any of those figures.

Not interested in repacks, but I will pick up Snoke. This is a weak way to reboot the line, can't say I'm excited for it - especially with the rumors that it will cost $15.

They could release a 3.75 version of the 6 inch Rebels Ahsoka, she remains hugely popular, and that figure / outfit turned out great. I'm up for more female characters, especially those that have yet to be made - from the recent movies, I'd like Connix, Holdo, and a TFA Leia in her vest. I would love if they explored CW females, such as Talzin, Ventress, Bo Katan...ah, I probably should stop before I get my hopes up, lol.

yea, seriously


No Dooku or Ventress.

I dont see why these two havent been made in new 3 3/4" series or 6" yet. they'd be huge hits.

2x Snoke?! That's a pegwarmer.

My favorite figure was Clone Wars Obi-Wan.

This could get me back into the hobby. When I sold everything a few years ago I sold all the stuff I kind of wanted to keep as well, because I figured making those available would increase the price I get for all the less desirable figures. The "see seller's other items" and indeed I think I was right. And also if you're gonna get out you should get out, avoid recidivism heh. But now I really miss it!

Not a terrible case ratio, having Snoke 2x per case makes sense since it's a new figure.

I agree, 2x Snoke is a must here. It's a good case ratio, but wow we really do NOT need Jyn again right now. Give her a year and then maybe throw her back into the mix, but not for what looks to already be a shaky launch wave.

Also while I don't mind the Hoth Trooper, this would have been a much more welcome addition instead:

^ Just give him a new face or something, enough to make it a bit different.

I assume everyone meant they wanted that one...But Hasbro misinterpreted which figure was in-demand to be reissued.

Above is pic I snapped over the weekend while at SAGA TOYS in St. Louis.
