Since I first found the $5.86 TBS figures, I've picked up 2 Poes, 2 Ackbars, a Lando, and an ERG for custom fodder. I was hoping to see Cassian, Scariffs or some Death Troopers, but then I remember that the Cas wave never even hit here...

I checked one of my Walmart's out and I was finally gonna bite the bullet and buy Lando for such a good price but of course both of them had horrendous paint apps. They didn't have much of anything else, just Starkiller Base Hans. I'm a frustrated collector right now. :|

I drove to Vandalia, IL today with a friend and picked up an AT-ST finally!!! I'm glad to have picked this up, as it's a really cool item! I think I'm gonna use it for a Scarif shelf diorama

I also ordered the 3.75 Starlord and Yondu pack from HTS. They're a weird scale. And Yondu is missing his arrow but has a holster for it, so I guess I'll be messaging them tomorrow. :/

I'm pretty sure he doesn't come with the arrow. :-/ How are the figures though?

I hit the Kohls on Cicero & found a Jango 6 inch for $6 & their exclusive 4 pack for $10!

That's what I was afraid of! Eff that. :x The figures are good overall. I just wish Starlord would have had a removable helmet. It's kind of weird they could get his likeness for the 6 inch figure and not the smaller scale.

The weird this is they aren't 3.75 inch figures. They're bigger than SW figures. I'll take a picture here in a little bit for you! I wouldn't mind a second set, so I could swap Yondu's long coat to Starlord...

Thanks! I'm really interested in these sets but I wanna make sure before I buy them. The Spiderman/Vulture pack looks awesome, so does the Dr. Strange though I don't care for the Astral version all that much. Still need to pick that movie up!

After seeing accounts of cheap 6" figures and people funding Baze and Chirrut for $7, I'll put a bounty out there. And I'd even swap my Revan I got for full price for those two.

i think this is the only way they know they can make room for anything they shipped since december .
30+ stores = zero revan waves and zero baze/chirrut waves.



i've talked to employees at a few stores and basically new SW stuff hasn't shown up since 3p0/krennic waves.



BUT... BUT.... the newest transformers are already on the shelves, same with all the marvel legends stuff.
that new titan class megatron looks spiffy.

Here's those pics of the GOTG figures. Also, their hands aren't articulated...

More on the lines of 4" inches, interesting. They look cool, I may just buy the 6" Marvel Legends versions though, those look sweet. Thanks for the pics, Jodo! :D

I have those GOTG 3.75" figures too... they are okay, but not great and are definitely a bit oversized for this scale.

Just poorly constructed due to the torso design more than anything and I don't get the fascination with ball jointed hips, it almost always looks terrible on 3.75" scale. I already popped apart what I could on them for SW customs.

:wink:

Yeah, we'll see if I get them. Not gonna pass on the Spider-man/Vulture set, too cool to pass up.

P.S. I've been a member of the forums for year now, been a lot of fun. :D

When I saw the price drop on the Walmart 3.75 BS, I grabbed a Finn for customs. Wanted to grab an extra Poe but all gone everywhere I checked. Would have picked up a spare Jinn but only two i found were defective. Already have an extra Lando and Ackbar so not a huge priority to get more. I'm really really hoping these clearances are simple to get rid of the glut of pegwarmers we've been stuck with. I have yet to see the Cassian, Scarif Troopers, 6" Baze and Chirrut, or the AT ST. I ordered Cassian and two Scarif troopers online but would have loved to pick up some extras at clearance price for customs.
Hasbro, I keep trying to give you my money. Why do you make it so hard?

yep, march 24th and still no sign of things that were supposed to be on shelves Dec 16th.






I'm really starting to think I might be done with this game and hasblo in general and just stick to making 1/12 scale vehicles.
