    Yeah, I'm getting into Army building so I'll bite on at least two.
    Hasbro, if you're listening, REBEL PILOT MULTIPACK! Rogue One: Antoc Merrick, Blue Leader. A New Hope: Theron Nett, Red 10. Empire Strikes Back: Rogue 4, Hobbie Klivian Snowspeeder. Return of the Jedi: Horten Salm, Gray Leader. All easy kitbashes, all unique, a guaranteed best seller.

    It is dirty, like sand, look at the picture on the photo archives on Rebelscum on the TVC. it is the same toy, nothing different. my personal opinion it's that looks very good.

    I think at first, Ponda will go rather quickly because a lot of people missed him during the TVC era. Depending on how many cases there are, he could slow down after the initial rush. I think the sandtrooper will do alright, but sandtroopers have had a rather wide release, so who knows if there will be a rush or not (I only have a few of this sandtrooper and I'm a fan, so I'll probably pick up a few). The Tusken hasn't been released for 5 years, but the elbows bother a lot of collectors. For anybody that missed the last release, they'll probably get him. I really think Boba is going to be a problem. It's not a film design, so casual buyers might pass by.
    #1 want: Admiral Piett (3.75" TVC line)

    I'd like to exercise my right to free speech, but I really don't have anything to say at the moment.

    Already told the kids we are pretending Boba was on Hoth just in the background and you couldn't see him... because he was wearing all white.

    If Disney truly wants series to succeed, it will put the shows on basic cable. I will not pay extra on an already high monthly cable bill to watch one show on one network.

    ​I am sure this whole wave will peg warm.
    Most wanted figures: Vedain, Luke Bespin (Beatup version), Fozec, Taym Dren Garen, Sim Aloo

    If these came out at regular retail stores here in Germany, I think the sandtrooper and Boba Fett would probably sell fairly quickly. The Tusken would probably do well also because we haven't seen a Tusken in 5 years. Ponda Baba hit here pretty hard, so I think the market is already saturated with him. I'd still pick up a few Pondas for customizing, though.

    I don't know about Germany but in the UK these are so overpriced it's staggering, even in the US the price is crackers. So it's hard for them to sell through fast. Now these repacks are not only too dear, they are terrible choices, so I just do not see how these are going to sell briskly, it's just not going to happen in any market. If these were released at a 5.99 price point I think they would be peg warmers (some of them have been!).

    I'm not sure how the secondary market is in other countries, but here I can say that any desirable figures typically go for a pretty penny. TVC Sandtroopers are usually $20-35. I'll be happy to pay less than that.
    Modern versions of vintage Return of the Jedi figures: 17/17; 9/14
