Oh lord... please Hasbro, put that 3PO mold to bed already.

Colors look great though. I'll get one to keep carded.

If anyone that ordered theTarget Droids exclusives ends up with Buyer’s Remorse, I was buried in work and totally forgot about the Pre-Order. I’m looking for the 6” as well as one of each of the 3.75”.

Funny how living abroad helped my getting my hands on a few sought after exclusives for once. First SDCC Emperor, now those gorgeous Target exclusives. If only Hasbro Pulse exclusives were that easy to locate.

I have a poetic sob story. I will post this in the 3 TVC Droids figures threads once each.

So late thursday/early friday my basement flooded due to persistent heavy rains. It got up to 4", aka 3.75. So needless to say, I was a bit occupied when these pre orders went live. That is all handled now and my basement is probably cleaner now than it was before the intrusion alas, I am in the void now with these amazing looking TVC Droids issues.

Anyone who has an extra set of these 3 figures lined up and is willing to part with them when they come in (as long as card and bubble is in good condition) for either a modest premium $ or for trade (I have a lot of TVC figures MOC and also about ALL of the Dark Horse Omnibus in VF/NM condition) please PM me sooner than later to work out a plan between us.

FYI, I buy and sell (to collect more, not a professional seller) on Ebay, my handle there is eidolon82, where you can see some of my goods that are up for sale/trade. But I am a man of principal and not looking to get over on anyone, and would probably even happily make a deal that is leaning heavily in your favor because anything that I had listed there I was looking to part with anyones, and these figures are gorgeous and I must have them. Being an 82 kid, original POTF and Droids figures were predominantly the only new figures I recieved as a squirt.

As a highlight note, a potential great value trade for anyone looking, I have an MOC Unpunched Kithaba (black/brown bandana) in fantastic condition that I was looking to part with. I would trade him straight up for a set of these 3 Droids figures in great condition.



Back to your regularly scheduled programming..

I don’t know if Hasbro will do any other Droids figures but it would be a cool idea to do a Fromm Gang (Sise, Tigg, Vlix) or Droid Masters (Thall, Jann, Mungo) 3 pack as some sort of exclusive.

I don't ever see those happening TBH, but I could see some of them possible by utilizing reuse mixed with new tooling similar to the Klatooinian Marauder. But it would takes extensive parts use that they likely no longer have the molds to.

Would be nice to see them but I doubt Hasbro would do them.

I pre-ordered one, along with Fett and Artoo. But I’m not sure I’ll keep it. While I like the paint apps, I hate the sculpt.

It's great Hasbro is making a Droids-based C-3PO. Droids (or "Friends in Space" as it was called in German) was among the first visuals I remember from SW. I just wish they had used a better base sculpt. Be it either the 2010 K-3PO, the 2010 Geonosis Arena C-3PO, the TCW C-3PO or the Rebels C-3PO.

TBH, I've always felt that Wicket mold was a bit on the large side compared to all the other Ewok figures. And since he basically looks the same in both movies and TV I'd be fine if they didn't go with him, but rather went with Latara. That's who I really want. Kneesaa has already had two releases so I'm not sure they'd do a 3rd for her.

That said, given that they are pretty much the focus of the show it probably will be those two with Paploo instead of Logray. Because that's who they centered on in pretty much every episode Wicket, Kneesaa and Paploo. If they were able to mimic the animated look for them I would certainly like to get Logray and Chirpa, as well as Latara. But if they're just lazy repacks on Ewok cards not so much. If it actually happens I am curious what they will look like.

Thing is tbough, Kenner only released 2 cartoon ewoks..wicket and logray. There were 3 more planned for series 2 but never saw light of day..paploo, chirps and I forget 3rd off hand. Wicket I suppose rerelease tvc and just include the animated hood repainted. His hood changed colors from season to 2 I believe. Logray would need alot new tooling than a simple repaint. Now if they introduce non open her 1985 figs, they could rerelease TLC knees. One other ewok in that try 5 pk had a good simular to cartoon teebo I think, so a repaint there possibly. Latara..likely a repaint of a smaller, ie not tall, ewok but may need new tooling for hood. Well, they did that for 50th paploo..So it's possible, but not probable since me to of purple wave is l2ess than that of the 3 revealed droids characters w/ coin .

The third Ewok in wave 2 was Weechee. Actually, interestingly there were at least 4 more Ewok figures sculpted and planned for a the first wave but scrapped in favour of the Duloks.

If they are looking for the cost effective route, these should be retro collection. A lot of new sculpting needed to match these to make an assortment.

so either they are staggering in some more volume here and there in the mornings or they keep having the same fluke allowing pre orders that aren't meant to be allowed, hope is the first thing!

I wouldn’t mind the other characters from Droids be updated lake Hasbro did with these. Maybe do some of the other figures from series 2 that weren’t released but with modern sculpts.

Hopefully these survive the shipping process with the thicker cardbacks. The figures themselves are nothing special, so I'm keeping the set carded, as they have no real display-ability loose. This will be a test for Target / Hasbro on whether they can deliver these more inflated repaints in good condition - if not, there will be no point in releasing them in the future.

I think Target is conscious of the fact collectors value package condition. I would say 98% of what I have ordered from Target in the last year has been shipped well protected and showed up in decent condition. Murphys Law says the next thing I get will be in a box thats too small with one of their stickers attached to it now that I have said this.

Got my notification that this has shipped. Hopefully that means for R2 and Fett, they should be on the way soon too. Let's hope.

I also got my shipping notification for 3P0. Nothing for R2 yet.

After checking R2's status, on a whim I searched the respective Fett's and to my surprise was able to sneak a preorder in on TVC droids Fett. Missed the black series by seconds. So that was a nice surprise. So keep an eye open, as they may be floating in and out of stock.
*cut scene to two months from now and every target has choked pegs of Droids deco figures*

got a notice about the C3PO shipping and money taken for it. We'll see, I missed the Boba.
