Thanks, Raylen. I'll probably pass on doing it then. Maybe Hasbro will do it? Not too concerned either way.

I wished the Kylo Ren helmet would have been separate from his hood/cowl. Probably wouldn't have been enough room to hollow out, but I could have trimmed out a side so he could hold it.

40th Anniversary Black Series Wave 2. Thanks entertainmentearth.com. Delivered today! Didn't expect it so soon. Here's a pic of the box so you know what to look for on those early morning trips to your Target or Walmart. It's more square than rectangle like wave 1.There's nothing like opening up a box of case-fresh Star Wars figures.

I am noticing those titanium 3.75 figures are selling good, other than Luke.

I got my w2 case from EE too. Here's the whole gang...

I wonder why they changed the size & shape of the box from w1 to w2?

Amazing. Many of us figured they'd hit the clearance aisle pretty fast.
Hasbro, I keep trying to give you my money. Why do you make it so hard?

Some of them actually look great. I think Vader, Leia and Kenobi are gems. I finally saw a Vader yesterday and bought him.

For a limited line they're pretty cool. I think lack of any good compering 3.75 product in OT fashion right now helps these too.

The Luke and Han are kinda drags and I don't plan on getting them. But, you could get them and swap out better heads for them, I think.

At Target. Every one of these was Princess Leia.

That's just insane. Great figure, but insane.

I guess at least you get your pick of the best card/paint scheme, but it's overkill and stores are going to then get stuck with extras and not want to order more.

Sigh. What is Hasbro doing?

I am absolutely livid with Hasbro, and not because of the products they're producing but because you can't even FIND anything new anymore, I'm probably sounding like a broken record by saying this so much but it's just so aggravating. I haven't found a new figure in stores in about 5 months. Hasbro, you're making it really hard to enjoy the hobby.

Leia: "It could be worse."

Han: "It's worse."


I've only seen these figures once in the store, about a month ago, and really nothing since. But solid cases? Wow. That would work great if this was McDonalds and you dropped by each week for the next figure in a Happy Meal, but that's not going to happen. Ugh. I can't see that many of any figure going out the door unless it's a troop builder. Instant pegwarming.

I know, there have been ups and downs like this for the past 20 years. I think the worst was 2013 but I also recall a horrible stretch in 1998-99 before the EP1 figures came out.

This hobby is becoming more and more about ordering online.

That's the exclusive.

Hasbro would rather us stare at Cassian and Jyn figures each time we go to a store than be able to purchase this figure.
