A new 3 pack has surfaced featuring BB-8, Unkar Thug & Jakku Scavenger. I'm sure people will just be picking this up for BB-8 but still some nifty looking figures in this pack.

http://forum.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data/4455/STAR-WARS-TFA-3_75IN-Figure-2-Pack_Desert-Mission_zpsc3tih6u0.jpg

Anyone going to pick this up? Thoughts on it?

Love this set and the character designs. The thug is probably the little guy lol

The little guy's name is Teedo as per the recent Entertainment Weekly. Too bad we aren't getting beasts - He'd be much cooler with his Luggabeast.

Yep, just for the droid like you said, but my son loves aliens, creatures, and so on, so I doubt he will mind the set.

This set is rad, and I'll surely pick it up, but I want to know if Unkar has more than one thug? "Unkar's Thug" sounds like it's just this dude and Unkar...pretty sad criminal operation.

Far and away the most exciting TFA toy which has been shown, and I'm glad it won't be necessary to buy the Falcon to get BB-8. Can't wait for "Teedo" to meet "Teebo"!

Didi you guys miss the catalog leak from earlier today? Go check out the TFA General Toys thread. There's a few links there that are still good.

Yep. Fun character designs on Teedo and the taller one. Think I'm most excited about these out of all the figures in Wave 1 so far.

The accessory reminds me of some of the 90s Jurassic Park pack-ins.

I was worried about BB8 not being available but this is the 3rd time seeing him (MF, Xwing?)

I like this a lot. Meaning that this is on the VERY shortlist of items I can see myself picking up on Midnight Madness. Honestly? I remain amazed at how precious little I want at this point -- which is more than kinda bumming me out. So far, it's just the following items...

BB-8, Unkar's Thug & Jakku Scavenger
First Order Stormtrooper
Special Forces TIE Fighter
Rey's Speeder with Rey

This will probably be the big hit hard to find figure set. BB-8 on anything would be. Is this the only way to buy BB-8 in 3 3/4 scale other than the toy falcon?

Based on the catalogue leak; then yes, this is the only option.

Its also worth noting that the "Jakku Scavenger" figure appears to be Rey in her "scavenging outfit", presumably from the opening part of the film.

So here is my question:

What is the difference between the 2-pack ("3 pack") BB-8 and the so called "exclusive" BB-8 that comes with the Falcon?

I normally wouldn't mind the 5POA. What bothers me is how they split the skirts in the middle and made them part of the legs. Is it really that much more expensive to have the little extra plastic to act as proper skirts?

I was hoping for some weird new robots, beasts, and aliens and basically it's this set and that's it.
Don't they realize the launch is their best bet to get the weird stuff out there when people will buy anything because they don't know what it is yet? Now isn't the time for four different versions of Finn in the same costume or three of basically the same Kylo Ren but in this one he has a dumb made up backpack, now is the time to make that doofy looking little guy with the critter box on his back or that weird metal box headed animal thing.

Easy buy for me. I am gonna buy ALL of this set on Force Friday, then scalp them on ebay for 50 bucks each!!!! MUAHAHAHA.

Nah, just kidding. One and done on this set for me. I budgeted a lot more than it seems I will need, so the money I save will go into the smuggling compartment on my BMF. Then it will be there when I need it for TFA waves 2 and 3. I just hope we get to pre-order future waves, cause toy hunting in the snow is turrible up here in WI.

This is seriously THE BEST thing, I've seen as of yet for The Force Awakens... The sculpts are a step back to be sure, but they remind me of the old cantina three packs... Especially an old favorite of mine, the one with Naubrun Leids... I dunno. Definitely want. Definitely will buy... :)

Probably not, but it would also require a Little bit more work and/or thinking on Hasbro's part and we all know at this point Hasbro's got a bad motivator.

two words:

Tion Medon

Why you ask? He was a Sneak Peak figure and then we got another figure of this obscure alien when?
Oh yeah... we didn't.

These are a must buy based on that alone.

I agree, I don't think they'll show up again either which is why I am on the fence with these as opposed to Finn or Rey who I feel have a shot at being in an SA line someday hopefully. There was one of Tion's soldiers released around the same time so we did technically get two unless you count the Inquisitor.

I have no plans at all on buying that terrible Falcon, so I guess that means this is the only other way to get him. Bad form on Hasbro's part to not make him available in some other packs as well. Between this one and the Ashoka and Vader two pack, They will probably sell out very fast. Hopefully I can beat the crowd and get my hands on both.

Darth_Broem
08-30-2015, 06:59 PM
I'd rather get this than an $8 single packed BB-8 or that $130 Falcon. Plus I like these funky Jakku designs. I might even get that Constable and Plank figures. I don't need SA for those.

Love this set and the character designs. The thug is probably the little guy lol

I would think the little guy is the scavenger and the thug is the guy with the weapons. it seems like a lot of the alien characters or at least the ones we are getting figures of are either masked or have most of their faces covered up in some way.

Disappointed that this wasn't one of the initial offerings, as my 5 year-old daughter really, really wants me to get her "the snowman droid." I did get the 6" Rey & BB-8, but it's unfortunate that there was no 3.75" scale BB-8 available on day one. Hasbro could actually have put that tiny droid on its own card at full price and it still would have been one of the first figures to sell out. Not saying that they should do that.

It sucks because this was being marketed on the Force Friday brochure as if it was going to be out at midnight. This, along with the Ahsoka and Vader 2 pack, was one of the things I was most excited for. Turns out both of them were left out of the midnight launches, I went to multiple Targets, Walmarts, and Toys R' Us's to get them and lo and behold, they were no where in sight.

09-04-2015, 04:53 PM
I highly doubt this will become the next "Chopper." Plus, given that its the "Mission Series," I'd expect to see a (slightly) better BB-8 in the upcoming Walmart exclusive Black Series line at some point within the next few months. So as much as I really want BB-8 and these cool scavengers, I'm not too worried about this set.

Nope. That's why I bought the set of 3 they were offering for $49.99 with 1x BB-8/Jakku Dudes, 1x Ahsoka/Vader, and 1x R2/3PO. The BB-8 and Ahsoka packs were the only 2 definite pickups I even had on my FF checklist, and I had the red-armed 3PO pack on the very bottom of my list as a "maybe" depending on how the paint apps turned out, but seeing as how it was already grouped in with the other 2 sets, I just bit the bullet and ordered.

Last time I checked though, Dorkside DOES have a preorder listing for individual Ahsoka/Vader packs, but even after multiple page refreshes, every time I tried to click Add To Cart, a window popped up saying "Pre-Sold Out." Very strange, as usually when something pre-sells out or goes OOS on their site, the listing for that item just disappears. Not sure why this one's still lingering on their Rebels product page.

But if you do that, then you end up with salt-shaker figures that can't move their legs at all.

I'm pretty surprised these Mission Series sets weren't available for Force Friday considering all of the attention that's being put on the new generation of characters, especially BB-8. With BB-8 being promoted in various ways for Force Friday it was disappointing to not see this little guy hanging on the pegs. Being an avid astromech fan myself I was looking forward most to picking up this set.

If the Unkar/BB/Teedo pack wasn't arriving so imminently, I'd be seriously tempted to buy that Disney set and slice BB off for a placeholder, since he seems like a close-enough scale match.

Perhaps, but if there had actually been the same product not the pegs/shelves as had been advertised and promoted there would have been perhaps a little
less disappointment lol.

This set is going to be packed 1 per case in Wave 1, 3 per case in Wave 2. So ultimately it shouldn't be too difficult to come by, but it is certainly going to be popular along with the Ahsoka/Vader set.

Does anyone have the Target DPCI for this series? I don't think they have peg space for them yet. And that leaked DPCI list from a few weeks back included it but turned out to be completely bogus I think.

What are those white pieces of paper in the figure bubbles? Mine doesn't have any of them.

My guess is that there are the required EU warning Labels. They packed them in the TIE Pilot carded TBS figs as well and for carded collectors it really ruined the cool Card because right behind every figure was that warning "packet" of paper.

Picked 2 sets of this Mission Series 3-pack this morning,here in the UK.

Its kinda equally part annoying/part amusing that the earlier mission series two packs are beside their more expensive brethren in the SW section.

And when we figure in the "repacks" Anakin/Yoda,Obi/Cody,Han/Leia,Zeb/chopper that now have a few extras chucked in for "value" it's even more annoying that the £5/$5 price hike isn't as a result of new tooling evident in the Vader/Ahsoka BB-8 sets,but just another insidious cash grab on Hasbros part.

The BOX ART......is FANTASTIC!!!....just beautiful.

There is 2 ways I would have done bb8. Metallic ball with magnetic head or they could have had the head fixed to the body with either side of the ball acting as big wheels on either side

RaptorBandito
09-09-2015, 10:06 PM
If this was back during the AOTC figures, they probably would have used magnets. But then the magnets would have been super weak, and the head would fall off.

Cramer
09-09-2015, 10:23 PM
They could have just made the bottom weighted like a Weeble. The jointed head is fine for this scale.

This pack kicks serious booty. Probably my favorite three figure in the line thus far.

Unkar's Thug has those awesome, solid PVC vintage legs rather than the hollow skirt legs we've been seeing in 5POA. Love 'em!

Did anybody buy this set from the Disney Store?: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Figure Play Set | Figure Sets | Disney Store (http://www.disneystore.com/star-wars-the-force-awakens-figure-play-set/mp/1383966/1000262/)

If the Unkar/BB/Teedo pack wasn't arriving so imminently, I'd be seriously tempted to buy that Disney set and slice BB off for a placeholder, since he seems like a close-enough scale match.

you know thats actually not a bad idea, and both sets are pretty close to in price. the figures might make for pretty good dio pieces to set up with. wish there was a side by side pic to actual figs

I actually like the flat bottom design of the little BB-8 over the weighted round bottom one that comes with the 6 inch Rey. With the six inch scale one I can never get it balanced right. It's either leaning way back or way forward.

Ive been going into my local Toys'R'Us every other day since the 4th and have been disappointed in the amount of restocks thus far. I stopped in on my way to work and saw that they had ALL of the 2 packs! I found the C-3P0 and R2-D2 pack right away, but the only one missing was this one... I decided to look behind some other products to see if someone hid one, and BOOM! I found one hiding. Super happy to have these in my collection!

The net launcher is pretty terrible on this. I figured it would be but was hoping i could take the net and put it on the side of Rey's speeder. The fact that the net is about as big as two postage stamps squashed that dream real quick.

Agreed, and am I missing something? Where is the button the launch the missiles?

So one would guess from this set that we'll be getting an Unkar figure soon as we have Unkar's Thug? Is it too spoilerish for someone to post a pic of Unkar if there is one?

bonoferox
09-16-2015, 12:40 PM
No button... you have to push the ends of the missiles inward to fire them out (to the point where you unlatch the sides from the canon). It's dumb and doesn't work well.

Finally found this BB-8 pack at Target today! Had previously no evidence of 2-packs at my Targets. Did find left overs at Kmart once where I got Chopper.
It is good that BB-8's availability will increase with wave 2, but he should have planned his release better. Target really tried promoting him with a life size BB-8 in every store. Yet his merchandise was practically missing in the core launch 3.75" line.

I even saw an Anakin/Yoda two pack which I didn't know existed. It seems like these two packs (at least in my area) are being sent to stores in regular amounts, since I've found a handful each at TRU and Walmart in a very busy area.

I asked a stock guy at Target to check out the DPCI code for 2-packs; when he plugged it in, nothing came up. I don't know if that's because I gave him the wrong code or what (087-06-3661 Star Wars E7 Figure 2 Pack $14.99 per Toyark). However, he went back and checked anyway, and ended up finding an unopened box of 2-packs... I think he said something about it being filed incorrectly. Anyway, I scored the BB-8 pack, and I am very happy! So, for anyone interested and in the area, the Blue Ash Target in the Greater Cincinnati area has all the 2-packs besides BB-8.

Found the BB-8 pack at my local TRU. Got 10% off for Thursday and used a $5 reward so it was less than $10 total. Canceled my BBTS pre-order.

I found an extra BB-8 pack at my local Target this morning. I'm willing to trade for it, but not sell. If I can't trade, I still want to hold on to it just in case one of my kids loses our open BB-8.

Lucked out and found one today at a Target on my lunch break. Can't wait to open it tonight. It was between that one and the Chopper pack. I only allotted myself one figure purchase this week. Spent way too much $$ lately!

Oh, I'm in Papillion, NE.

Oh cool you're in Papillion! I'm in Lincoln. Just went to TRU and it looked like they'd completely restocked. They had all the 2-packs but no BB-8 :( I'll be checking Target here shortly, though they've been a big disappointment so far.

Omigosh, the TRU here has had zero figures since FF. I haven't checked in a few days, though. I'm caught up on everything I want except for Hux, PZ, and Inquisitor. I don't think they've made it to Nebraska yet!
Target has been a disappointment too until this week.

Finally got this figure at Walmart yesterday. Feels well worth the price with the 3 figures, and the paint and details on these guys is much better than I thought. Teedo is a little green man...

BB-8 is soooo small and I feel like they should have weighted his base a bit or something, but this is my second purchase for TFA (Rey's Speeder being the first) and I don't feel ripped off at all. Seriously glad I was able to pass on everything else.

Still want Sarco, PZ--- and Goss though... we may never see these as action figures again and I love me some aliens.

I found my BB-8 set yesterday at the Target in Bellevue. I bought that set and the 3PO/R2 set. I didn't realize it until I got home and my wife pointed it out, but something must have rung up wrong because I was only charged for one of them. So SCORE one for me! Buy a BB-8, get a 3PO/R2 for free! that won't happen again, but still kind of cool. I'm just happy to have the set.

Glad you found it! Now that I have it, I've seen it at a few Targets around town so they must be more plentiful now. Oh and great score on the BOGO. When I bought mine, it ran up incorrectly at $7.99, and of course I didn't correct her. When I went back later to pick up another 2-pack, they'd corrected it. :(

I picked this set up yesterday in the Boone, NC Wally. I've been looking for it since FF and I must say it was worth the wait! These are the most interesting figures I've seen from TFA yet. I'm not thrilled with the 5POA, but the "play value" is great. Besides, this line ain't about me. My son loves BB-8 (and Kylo) and we are "sharing" the two goons!

Checked TRU for this set today, and (again) someone sniped it seemingly right before me. The whole rest of the case was hanging there except for this one and it looked like they had just restocked this morning. I know the second I order one online I'll find it in stores, so I'm holding off for now. Just going to keep checking.

There seems to be a running change with the BB-8 figure, the first one I got had no peg hole and the head plugs into a grey socked in a mostly empty body shell. The later version has peg hole and the inside is more solid with a square box & a tighter hole that's almost impossible to remove the head.

These are certainly some of the best - and the set actually feels like a good value. I hope they do more like this, even from other movies. I'd love an OT creature set in this line, with perhaps an obscure alien and a couple Tatooine critters.

Just noticed tonight on EE that wave 2 (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HSB3955B#.Vjl****Vikp) of these two-packs supposedly has more than one BB-8 set per case. I think that means we'll be seeing this on the pegs more in the coming weeks.

It's also the only 2 pack that's 2 per box while the others are just 1 per. The fact that there are twice as many as any other 2 pack set probably has more to do with it.

Same.

But I feel like I'm not the only one in my area to be doing this, so it's only leaving a lot of Rebels merchandise on the pegs.

No matter, though. As of yesterday when I ordered the rest of the Hux wave, I have all the TFA single-carded figures.
Just need to complete the vehicles now.

and that's where they belong, on the pegs or behind the curtain or at the rubbish tip or in an abandoned warehouse or buried in the Sahara desert or on Mt Everest, just not where TFA figures are; i'm sick of this world asserting itself with trickery and manipulation. Each sh_t gets it's on space, leave the cat food in the kitchen and the hammer in the garage and the spade in the garden, get some sensibility back into this game. TFA ONLY!!!

Do you like how Hasbro cunningly structure a three set so we need to buy two TFA and one Rebel or Episode One figure to complete it? Talk about manipulation > (.i.e. witchcraft+greed); no thanks, go jump Hasbro, obviously they think we have stupid written on our foreheads. They seem to have anticipated that by structuring the three sets to need a Rebels or episode one figure which normally we wouldn't have bought, so they could make another easy hundred million < ... "Not this ship sister! We could fly right through a super nova or anything would suit real quick wouldn't it" < if anyone can tell me which episode of star wars that quote is from, and who said it, and to whom, and where the person was when they said it, you get a custom gold medal with your name on it and a diamond encrusted chocolate chip cookie on me, plus a free trip to Mars when commercial flights start going there:awesome:

I also bought the rebels 2-pack Vader/ahsoka.. This is my first ever ahsoka action figure, but I bought it mainly for the Vader. He looks so cool in the animated McQuarrie-esque style... Couldn't let it pass.
also picked up, finally, the threepio and Artoo twin pack.

I dig the unkar thug pack, the characters are most certainly of new design and look cool.

Dude, calm down. Some of us like Rebels, and I think most, but of course not all, of us don't care enough about the BAW parts to make ourselves have to buy the repack Rebels figures. I did enjoy the organization better when TCW was its own line and Legacy was its own, but those days are over, and there's only four Rebel packs currently shipping anyway (Kanan, Ezra, Ahsoka/Vader, Zeb/Chopper) , compared to all the TFA stuff releasing. I'm glad to get more rebels stuff, I just want them to double pack BB-8 or something so I could grab one. Even though I've seen several, I was personally happy it was so easy to find Ahsoka, but that's for another thread.

I only opened my vehicles. Everything else has remained and will remain in the packaging.

I keep telling my girlfriend and myself that when our future children get into Star Wars and make their way through the films, I'll let them open them and play with them.

That is, of course, if the retail stays roughly the same.
If the prices take off, my kids can suck it and buy their own damn toys. :grin:

Wow, I bet you're sitting on quite a bit of money. I mean, it's not like they're mint or sealed, but that's a lot of complete vintage gear.
Not saying you should sell it, but you should have it appraised some time.
Always fun to know the value of what you own. Makes you a little prouder. Haha

I have an unopened POTF2 Bantha, Luke & Wampa, and a couple more figures that are apparently worth a few times more than what they sold for.
That being said, the guide I read was years old.
I'd love for someone to take a look at some of the POTF2 stuff I have. I know the line isn't all worth much, but I have some stuff that you don't see much when talking about that line.

As for mine being unopened, I suppose I got them at an age where I realized I wasn't going to play with them and I had no room for a display/diorama.

I bought them when I was a teenager but while I opened them I never 'played' with them so they are immaculate. Was just browsing a site there, toyworth.com. I have some of the figures they value at $55 opened.

In general the opened figures are worth about $15 each which is only a little more than I paid for them in the 80s. Ireland was so expensive then for Star Wars toys. Guess what, it's still the case now as TFA figures are exactly double what they cost in US!
