I like that idea. I'd also love it if they got a Tarkin to us, somehow.It would be nice if we saw at least one other RO two pack surface in the TLJ line. I cast my vote for a Bohdi and Benthic Two Tubes for that. Rook has seen limited release, and Benthic would be a simple retool and slight paint app difference. Not to mention the relation of the two since Bohdi was taken to Benthic initially. So it would be a sensible release on every level.
If you're talking about 5POA, they haven't done a Scarif Jyn (like the SA 3 3/4 figure.^ I would say merrick (blue leader), 2nd two tubes, flashback Galen and krennic 2pk, generic rebel trooper could easily finalize r1 imho especially if upcoming jyn is flashback version with an accessory in addition or instead of stormtrooper doll. Other than repack, what new jyn is there to do?
Well, in their defense they didn't know that Bistan would never make it out 18 months ago, when designing this set. Nor did they know Baze would be paegwarming. So i can kind of forgive them this, just a little.I'm honestly shocked we're getting the Baze 2-pack, considering I saw 8 of them at Target last week - gathering dust at full price. They should have focused on releasing the Bistan 2-pack and the Fenn Rau figure instead. I want the figures they previewed a year ago before anything else from RO.
Hoping they get Waves 3 and 4 (more hopefully 4). They were the only other chain besides Rite Aid that got the GI Retaliation 'ultimate' figures like Duke, Flint, Roadblock and Storm Shadow. Tuesday Morning was also charging $5 compared to Rite Aid's ridiculous $12.I picked up a few storm troopers for $5 at Tuesday Morning Store (that I forgot existed until I was driving by it). They us some TFA vehicles and RO figures for $5.
Are we assuming these are repackaged? They're Force Link figures. At the very least they'd need to be retooled to accommodate the chip. I think they're probably new sculpts.Its true they cant predict how well a character may sell at retail, but secondary movies like RO should have a capped action figure line, unless they're introducing NEW characters in the following years lineup. I frankly don't feel they should repack any of the RO basic figures that made it to retail. I honestly don't think the demand will be there - are kids or collectors calling for more Jyn figures or any of these other characters that received significant distribution?
I'm going to assume this is what is bound to happen. There's going to be a lull from the movies from 4/20/18 till 9/?/19. This will give them a year and a half to put out some of the other figures in both the 3.75 and 6" lines. I suspect we could see them round out some of these figures. Although, I don't think there is much more for them to do in the 3.75" lineup with Rogue One. Everything is pretty much there...only Tarkin would be nice.^EXACTLY...My hope is (assuming Han Solo line/movie is still May '18) that the redo fall 2018 line until the spring 2019 launch for ep9, will be a mix movie line again with mainly undone MIA characters from tfa, r1, tlc, and rebels and ep1-6, limited ep7,8, r1 core repacks & cw peppered in to round out wv or 2
Oh, I know that. But we shouldn't really have to resort to buying rare 20 year old "antiques" just to complete RO dioramas. And that Vader has to be custom too. Yes, there is the RotS "Burnt Bader" that can be used as a base but it isn't screen accurate to the RO bacta tank Vader either. Hasbro could save us all this hassle by just releasing a proper RO Vader Bacta Tank set. In fact, I'm sure they will do (one day)...They did. That is the Power Of the Jedi Barca Tank that came with Deluxe Luke. All they did was paint it black.
Yeah I saw the beat carded set at local toy shop. I already have Luke set on my ESB display and I knew I would eventually get around to making a RO Vader when summer is over. The Vader is the most work here. I made a mold of burnt Anakin Head and shirtless Kit Fisto torso to make resin parts i epoxied onto the bacta Luke. Then sculpted some muscle bulk with epoxy.Oh, I know that. But we shouldn't really have to resort to buying rare 20 year old "antiques" just to complete RO dioramas.

I really would like to see a rogue one vinyl case with some of the nice art they used on the Kleenex boxes.Rogue One action figure carrying case- as it could have been.
