Well said.Mine arrived Saturday, and honestly, I'm pretty pleased. While I do like the BAD sculpt a bit better, I got a couple of Original Trilogy droids I had long been hoping for, and a couple of neat new additions. Other than the black and yellow stripes not quite matching up on QT-KT, the paint apps on mine look great. Jabba's bartender will be displayed right alongside the matching R2-D2, so an alternative sculpt would look out of place here unless the drink accessory had been redone. Probably won't be too tough to cast a plug in place of the sensorscope so the leg can be raised, though it would have been a nice addition if included. Really, my only gripe is the price tag for the four droids I was most interested in; however, if that's what it takes to get a decent set of exclusives made, I'd rather pay it than go with a 5poa successor line.
It's interesting. I've heard this a couple of times. I don't really feel like I have a firm grasp on the business relationship between Hasbro and Disney regarding the BAD line, either before or after the Lucasfilm buyout. I suspect that there was no physical change in the location of these molds, though possibly a change in ownership rights. Just speculation, though. There has also been discussion/speculation regarding a factory change at Hasbro between 2012 and now. Anyone know anything firm about what Chinese contractors Hasbro previously or currently uses for production?everyone keeps saying they'd rather these be the BAD mold, but i'm not sure we'll be getting those anymore because i think disney has the tooling now. that said, i'd be very content with the G9 mold or even the VOTC mold. i've got plenty of droids from both of those molds that i'm more than happy with.
Oh, they are $10 per figure. The extra $20 is for the box. :awesome:I'm sure it has been covered in the thread before, but if this were at a lower price, around $10.00 per figure, I'd consider buying it. I'll be checking Amazon, because EE exclusives usually show up on Amazon for less than EE sells them for.
I can answer my own question, it's 7. The 'seventh' drinks glass made a bid for freedom when I opened the packet, but I managed to track it down, it was hiding beneath a piece of fluff on my floor.How many drinks glasses should Jabba's bartender have? Mine came with 6, but there's room for 7. R2-C2 came with 7.
It's not really part of any line, since the Black series is the current line of SA figures it's here.there's nothing on the box that designates this as a Black Series item and the white box obviously doesn't fit in with the rest of the collection either. So what makes this a Black Series item? Or was this thread just parked in this section for lack of a better place to put it?
Yeah, I'm only interested in 1, maybe 2. So I'd probably sell the rest off. Might be more worth it to just by the one I definitely want on eBay though.Can't believe the price this started at, and can't imagine many will pay full price for exclusives going forward. I am only interested in two droids, so if it hits $20, i might buy one.
TBH, that is on them for the decisions made regarding this set. But yes, after this debacle, I will be less accepting of Exclusives and pricing than I ever was.Can't believe the price this started at, and can't imagine many will pay full price for exclusives going forward. I am only interested in two droids, so if it hits $20, i might buy one.
DO NOT go with the $8 FedEx to Postal shipping!!! Mine took 11 FORKING BUSINESS DAYS to get to Kentucky from California and it saw more states than I've seen on its trip...This is on clearance over at EE for $27. May pick one up if I can find enough stuff for free shipping.
