sadly they are charging their usual markup of $22.99 instead of 19.99 that they should be.

i already have a case of the yoda wave on pre-order.

Man... can not wait for some of the upcoming waves. More bounty hunters are coming! And those Hoth two packs.

Picked up Chewie. Sadly, he went from 17 yesterday to the 22 markup.

Testing something withh my posts here, ignore.

So, I don't know whether I should get MAFEX, SHFiguart or Revoltech Vader. Same with the Stormtroopers, they all have their pros and cons. I kinda regret buying the shoddy 6" Black line now.

The Mafex or SHF one looks like the best.

I found Black Series 6" Yoda, Tie Fighter pilot and Clone Troop Commander on amazon.com yesterday! Saved me from needing to buy a case and get an extra Obi Wan which I don't need.

They're out of stock now though.

As for Vader I think SHF is my choice, but I am still keeping an eye on the other two. I may end up getting one of them as well.

Out of stock already? Last night Kmart was having a sale on BS figures (3;75), and I later found out that Starkiller was out of stock the minute I added him to my cart. I was going to buy Malgus instead, but I have the TVC original, so I didn't.

If you are on facebook check out the Black Series Collectors group, tons of great pictures and tips on new releases there. There are some customizers already hard at work on some Episode VII stuff

Also, if you are into trading you'll see a lot of trade opportunities.

black series jabba for $22

Actually had a solid night at Target in Chicago.

Found Rebels Inqusitor and Agent Kallus.

But the big find was a Black Series Vader (6 inch)

Zulithe 12-03-2014 08:06 AM

i've had all the vader wave for while now, but i have seen quite a few vaders at my local TRU the last 2 or so weeks.

Lots of Chewies too. And TONS of RotJ Luke.

Oh well, while luke may peg warm in the short term, i think he'll sell a lot better than slave leia and greedo. he'll be roughly on par with Han.

also I wonder if Hasbro is going to produce anymore of the figures from wave 1? I bet a lot of people just now jumping onto this series would like to own a Maul but they can't since it seems like he's discontinued

Inquisitor and Kallus? Awesome! I'll have to keep my eyes open around our local Target then. All they have around here is giant Ezras and Kanans, plus a tun of that Star Wars Command and 6 inch Greedos and Han Solos. Hopefully the figures and vehicles will dominate store shelves next year.

snake 12-03-2014 06:54 PM

I'm asking for the basic rebels figures for christmas along with the vehicles. Except Kanan and Ezra, as I have those two from the TRU multipack.

Zulithe 12-04-2014 05:22 AM

i've seen some on the shelf. I just don't really collect 3.75" or i'd buy them. I mean, I have some... but it's really not my thing.

There are some more SW Rebels LEGO sets coming late this month (January LEGO sets usually show up in December), one has the Inquisitor and one has Sabine (though sadly without her awesome Pink Mandalorian helmet), I'll be getting those!

http://brickset.com/sets/theme-Star-...bels/year-2015

Anyway I might have to break down and buy the rebels mission series figures simply because the upcoming Sabine figure looks quite good, and i'll need some figures to go with her.

Waaait a minute, didn't you say you weren't getting those? You caved, didn't you? Ata boy! At least I think I remember you bowing out of Rebels stuff and waiting on the movie line. I honestly wasn't sure I wanted those either but they've evolved into must haves. Can't wait for that Imperial Troop Transport coming next year too. I think we're getting a release of The Ghost next Summer as well. Haven't found a single Rebels vehicle yet but keeping an eye out for Phantom, the AT-DP, and Inquisitor's Tie this December.

I should also check out some of those lego sets. Seems like their vehicles have a tun more action features than Hasbro's vehicles. My cousin's husband's lego Falcon has an opening top hatch for instance. At least I seem to remember it sporting one of those. Wish Hasbro had added that on their big 2008 version. Still bought it and love it regardless. I'm wondering if they're going to come up with an all new version for their 3 inch Episode VII line. Might just have to get it if that's the case. However, if it's a repaint, then I'm just sticking with the one I already have. lol I hope we're also due for a new Imperial Lambda Class Shuttle by Hasbro within the next few years. I got the 2006 version Target put out but it's still that 80's mold with a boarding ramp about as big as a popsicle stick. Palpatine could break his hip if he's not careful while walking on that thing.

I think I said something about not wanting rebels figures, but that was before I saw the show and I was still pretty angry about 5poa. :x

blindturtle02 12-04-2014 04:03 PM

Yeah, I confess the show made me want the toys as well. Filoni and crew really love that Troop Transport, but they have good tastes.

pandaderek 12-06-2014 01:20 AM

I was surprised to have found this at one of my local TRU, I must have just got there when they pulled it from the truck. But, it's a quality figure.
