Wedge and Sabine 2 pack would do crazy. Wedge gives you a base animated Rebel pilot in addition to himself. Sabine while also cool as herself gives you a generic female Imperial pilot. I'd certainly buy multiples. I'd kill for Sabine's Tie, I considered doing it myself but that paintjob is too intricate for my time and patience.I wrote out an extremely long post and lost it, but if I had to pick the bare minimum of what I think we need to see, excluding S3 updates to main characters. (I'd even like an S3 Hera, she deserves a new mold imo ) Saw Gerrara and Obi-Wan, who I'm sure is coming. - Lando Calrissian - Hondo Ohnaka - Cham Syndulla - Agent Kallus w/ Removable Helmet - Ezra Bridger (in Scout Trooper disguise) - 2-Pack: Cmdr. Jun Sato and ??? unsure - 2-Pack: TIE Fighter Sabine and Wedge Antilles - 2-Pack: Grand Moff Tarkin and Minister Maketh Tua - Sabine's TIE Fighter w/ S1 Sabine Wren (repainted S2 figure) The single-packs are major enough characters that they should sell well to kids and casual collectors alike, with Cham being the biggest gamble. The two main two-packs each contain a major character with casual or kid appeal (Sabine and Tarkin, though his kid appeal is limited) and a collector appeal character (Wedge and my darling Tua) plus Sato is pretty necessary but I questioned his appeal on his own? Couldn't find someone to place him with. TIE requires no new tooling, just a repaint. It'd obviously be nice to get a new basic TIE too, but my whole point here is to be conservative!! tbh if I had to pick any ONE of these, I'd pick Tua.
Oh, i don't know. Now that they've the CGI down for it. He could show up in Han Solo, or pretty much any movie set between TCW and ANH.They really should get a Tarkin out to capitalize on Rogue One. It's not like we'll get another chance to see him in some other spinoff.
yea, it was like after Season 3, the TCW line pretty much gave up on making figures. So many marketable characters never made it to the pegs. Maul's Red Mando Warriors come to my mind first. Teen Age Boba Fett & Friends. And so many easily repaintable clones. I would have bought them all.It's no mystery to me, look how many they didn't release for TCW. I'm simply amazed at all the characters the line didn't get. And how it survived so long with Main Heroes all the time.
I was referring to their cumulative coverage of Rebels characters since the show started. There are certain core characters that could be repacked, just like with the CW line, but Hasbro seems to be more cautious with Rebels. Zeb and Chopper were actually repacked together, so those shouldn't be all that difficult to track down. I'm honestly surprised they havent done a Ghost crew multipack as an exclusive with all repacks.Actually, if a kid were to start to collect Rebels figures now, he would have a hard time finding the most basic characters. Right now I could only find Kanan in Stormtrooper armor, Sabine, Leia, and perhaps Erza and Hera with vehicles. The Rebels line now is very much neglected for a show that is currently on air and hitting its stride. If you want Rex, Zeb, Chopper, A5, Kallus, or a few more regulars, you would be hard pressed to find any of them. Even the future remains bleak with just Fen Rau and Thrawn the only announced Rebels figures still to be released.
again it's just a rumor mill.. I'd be upset if they ended after 3 seasons... plus it might feel too rushed and leave lots of questions unanswered.Why so soon, are they in need of a show targeted to a much younger age group? Plus, when would this new show be set? Something between ROTJ and TFA? Possibly might be the only interest for me, I'm a bit fatigued with the ANH era.
I'm not the biggest fan of Rebels, but I'm not quite ready for the end yet. Especially if the change isn't one I like. I guess they feel now that R1 is out, there's not much left they can do.
