Ezra Bridger will be released in the 6" line with Cadet Helmet and lightsaber. Who plans to purchase this figure?

OK, but maybe down the line I see an Imperial cadet, Biker Scout disguise and short-haired versions being possibly made. The latter with the Kylo Ren saber accessory. :D

Like someone said elsewhere, if the height is not right, it's a pass. He can't be taller than Sabine and Hera, especially with this look from the first season(s)
But other than that, I will probably get him for the rest of the Phoenix gang :)

The figure does look nice, and I may get him for the same reasons above. However, I would have preferred Zeb first.

If that's what a "realistic" Ezra looks like, they should defiantly cast Luke Pasqualino as an older live action version in a future series/movie.

I would be willing to fork over more money for his custom 'concept' speeder bike to go with him, and an Imperial repaint (with possibly AT-DP pilot) shouldn't be that much an effort. But I should watch my wish list since Nest's swoop is going to eat up some real estate. :D

I'll pick him up, if only to complete my Ghost crew. Not my favorite character, but it looks like they've done a good job on him.

Considering his outfit doesn't change it wouldn't have cost much to just give an alternate head and lightsaber for his later look.

If they're making these in 6" realistic line, then I'd REALLY love them to do Hondo. CW outfit preferred but I'd still take his Rebels look. Just as long as you can't see his eyeballs!

Nah, his season 3 and 4 outfit is very different. He loses the jacket from this version and gets a high necked tunic sort of thing with shoulder pads and 'chest armour'. The pants turn to brown, he loses the mismatched shin armour pieces and gets matching high brown boots and the belt and holster is slightly different.

It'd take much more than just an alternate head.

This is way past due, as is Chopper. Even though Ezra is not a favorite character, I would like to complete the squad.

Hasbro can tweek him if need be, but I'd like to have a speederbike as well. IDK, is Hasbro foregoing the $40 deluxe figures for the $30 price point figures this year?

We need him to boost the crew and by the looks of it they've done a good job on him. Can't wait to purchase him.

Not that it would happen on this figure, due to the obvious reasons. But if they did that it wouldn't allow them to "reissue" the figure with a new head for you to buy another version! lol
It eats into their profits if everything you need for that character comes in one package.

TBH, I'd rather have Bo-Katan over him. And she wasn't even part of the crew or a regular on the show!
Heck. I'd rather have Sabine's Friend over him.

It creeps me the **** out. Looks good but he's definitely a resident of uncanny valley.

He looks scared stiff in that box xD of as if his head is being squashed.
Kooshmeister, you're up with a joke here :)

Gotta have him to complete the Ghost crew :)

The figure looks good, not sure on the face sculpt as he looks very unimpressed with life or something.

I wonder if he can wear that helmet. Maybe his hairpiece, or the head is detachable. It would be kind of a lame a accessoire otherwise. I would have prefered his backpack, or his lock pick

He did turn out pretty good. Not sure I'll get him though, I only wanted Zeb. So he probably never will get made. lol

Face does look little weird but hard when you don’t have anything realistic to go by. I’m ok with it and will get to work on completing Phoenix squad

You think they would wait this long to issue Ezra and Chopper but not finish the team up eventually with Zeb? No chance. Way late yes, but it will come

am I missing it or is Ezra not on amazon for pre-order?
Looks like the rest of the wave is up at mostly $17.97 ea.
Link please if anyone finds him on there.

Does anyone know - if Hasbro is expecting this wave to be in 'less demand' - will they adjust their production line accordingly?

I ordered all the droids from this wave, and of course Obi Wan, but skipped out on Ezra and Aphra - but would like to eventually get them - just figured they would be available in abundance?

But if Hasbro cuts the release #s, they may end up being more difficult to procure?

Just wondering if anyone actually knows the production run numbers without speculation or hearsay. :grin::p:awesome:

Unless someone has insider info we'll never know. You can't even go off the numbers on the cases since what's counted on them isn't necessary the entire run.

From my experience I would not hold out on these, they will likely never see retail and I'm sure they're the last wave before Force Friday in October. Retailers always wipe thier SW out yearly so this wave will be caught in the void.

It's a low production cost wave too. You got Aphra, BT-1, and 000 mostly being reused parts along with Chopper being light on parts and materials. Honestly Obi-Wan is pretty light on paint too. Ezra has to be the most expensive production wise. While I'm really looking forward to this wave it definitely has the signs of being hard to get in the future. Previous wave was pretty stellar with 100% new sculpts and we got some extra bits they could have skipped on.

I just can't see them making a huge run/second on these characters, only one movie figure in his least iconic look and five others a lot of people may not even know. Usually the more expensive a wave is to produce they'll make more to help balance the cost out. Besides those garabge repack filled waves this is the first time we've really had something like this. I dunno just always seems to be the figures people complain about or don't have as much interest are the ones that Dall through the cracks and become your expensive ones later on. Look at the Shadow Squadron set.
