Even with the most rumors about YakFace been sculpted and done, I wouldn't count too much on that, it might be a while before we start seeing a good selection of main characters and background characters. I'm sure that the selection would be based on the Characters progressing the story in the movies, not the characters seating in a cantina/bar looking very suspicious or aliens cleaning the X-Wing or on the conference room planning to attack the First Order.
I'm curious how many figures will be produced per wave - 3-4 seems to be the standard number for the Walmart series, new or otherwise, but that seems a little low for this?
I feel like with six, you could get 3-4 slots for major characters and two for backgrounders - let's use a wave from Walmart as an example. We all know these aren't new figures, but pretend for a second that they are. (I'm just doing this to minimize arguing choices vs. concept.)
- Kylo Ren
Boom, you've got four major characters with general appeal that collectors will buy (if they're new) and some casual fans may buy. Now you've got two slots left? Go full collector, of course.
- Yak Face
- Sim Aloo
Maybe switch one of the four for another ROTJ character to make it even, whatever, but you get the gist of it. If Hasbro gives us six figures per wave (or more?) instead of four, I think we can hope to see more than one collector-focused character per wave, and there'd be hope to see some obscure characters. I'm not so hopeful if there's only four slots a wave though. That would suck.
All that said, my line of thinking is Hasbro had no reason to bring back the Vintage Collection as a general release except to appeal specifically to adult collectors, so I'm confident they should throw us a few bones.
I really hope that Hasbro views the TVC line as a collector line and they make the case packs accordingly.
#1 want: Admiral Piett (3.75" SA/TBS line)
I'd like to exercise my right to free speech, but I really don't have anything to say at the moment.
I hope they start at 116 .No repacks just new figures.
