Star Wars: The Black Series Baylan Skoll (Mercenary) by Hasbro

We are no Jedi. The mysterious Force-wielder from Ahsoka joins Hasbro’s vaunted 6-inch Black Series collector’s line. A Walmart exclusive available later this year.

Thoughts on this figure? Will you be purchasing it?
 
Repacking him without correcting the height is pretty clever actually. They know it's the best way to sell all those Reva figures as well.
There's a Reva figure at my local Wal-Mart that's been broken into and has her lightsaber stolen and I'm just waiting for to see if they'll ever put it on clearance. XD
 
If the height is corrected (which I doubt) then I shall try and grab one. Otherwise yeah, pass.

Wise of them not to reveal this on the stream yesterday because good lord the backlash in the comments would've been insane😬
 
This is just insulting. At least find a way to make it a LITTLE different
 
To me this is genuinely the most infuriating thing the Black Series team have ever done and left a very sour taste in the mouth.

By preordering early I get a red sabre and miss out on the cloak. Scummy move to do this so soon after the first release.

If that's how they want to play it, I'll walk away now.

Just wait till Hasbro releases the Shin Hati Mercenary figure, same figure just with cloak. I wouldn't put it past them after this.
 
For whatever reason, I cancelled my preorder when it was still a preorder (I think too many other preorders hit at the same time). So, I completely lucked out by waiting here. I get a cool cloak for him and a cheap fun little custom project that someone else already figured out. Definitely picking this up!

There was a YakFace post saying to expect one...

Baylan Skoll (Mercenary) from Ahsoka. Code-named "Kneeling". He will be #13 in the Ahsoka sub-line.

Looks to be a straight repack of Ahsoka #09, except with a removeable cloak.

For the most part, I wait on 80% of figures to go on some amount of price reduction from MSRP.

I know the arguments against doing this. But...here's Hasbro re-enforcing that decision.
 
If I was in the States at this point that's totally what I'd do. Up in the north we never get the price reductions so you might as well preorder as there's a strong chance you'll never see it again.

At least now if we see it in store we'll be able to tell for sure if the cloak has been removed - before we buy it. So, silver lining...?
Yeah lol. Honestly, I can't defend the practice but in this instance I totally don't blame. Hasbro should have just sent these cloaks out to people with a valid proof of purchase. It's what they would have done back in the day!

That was another time...A time when collecting was fun and exciting...before the dark times, before greed, over charging and the need to fill their and shareholders pockets over making great products....
