I think Hasbro is actually hearing what fans are saying about wanting more female figures (see what they did about rushing out that unpainted prototype of Ashoka in time to show off at Celebration). I guarantee they will do a Sabine with removable helmet for the Black Series 6 inch next year.

I picked this figure up from Ebay for $10 loose. Got lucky with a last second bid and its the one with the purplish stripes on the helmet... Super jazzed!

There's a seller on ebay with a few of the corrected version two packs up. I submitted a best offer for only 1.50 off his asking price and he declined. What the hell is the point of best offer, if you're not going to accept any offers?

I'm guessing he's been getting lots of offers and knows the demand is high from the number of people watching the item.

He also has 10 available, and updated his photo to the all black mask. Glad he declined my offer now.

Amazon has these for 14.99 and free shipping with prime. No guarantee I'll get the purple mask, but I guess I can just send it back if it's not.

SCORE! That gamble on Amazon paid off. Opened the box tonight when I got home, and BOOM! Got the painted mask version!

I opened mine today, received the 1st version but whatever it's still cool. Nicely sculpted, love the way she can be posed firing both blasters forward. The helmet doesn't bother me either, it adds a little mystery to the figure and I'm sure we'll see a future version with a removable helmet and 2nd season look.

Got the Sabine/Stormtooper figure set as well (from Amazon). Never saw this @ retail, and never got a chance to go to Kohl's to see if they had this. So, I figured if I was going to get this, I may as well get it now - because prices will just go up.

In any case, great set. The Sabine is obviously the draw here - like the sculpt & the helmet; she's my favorite character on the Rebels cartoon...

I really hope Hasbro will produce another version of Sabine with a removable helmet sometime in the future. It's too sad you can't remove the helmet on the current figure. I wouldn't mind if the helmet is a bit larger than in the actual TV show, just to fit her head under the helmet. An action figure of a main character, where you can't see the characters face is a no go for me. She isn't a faceless Stormtrooper. ;)

Come on Habsro, I know you can do it!

Eventually they'll get to it. With so many requesting for it, it would be sad if Hasbro will not do it. But someone did tell me over at Facebook that eventually they will come to it...

So you're saying you have horrible taste in cartoons? I don't get it. 3 of the best-looking & best-written animated series of the last 20-something years, and he's your cultural enemy? Does not compute.


We do learn why the Empire's evil: they destroyed an entire planet of pacifists simply to say "toe the line, or your world is next".


I seriously hope REBELS somehow does away with that awfulness of Biggs being a "TIE pilot". He was first mate on a civilian frigate, and planned to jump ship to join the Rebellion rather than wait around for the Imps to draft him into military service.
However we dont know what Biggs was now since Lucasfilm said ANYTHING that did not show up in the Movies Books from hereon out Rebels and CW is not cannon. In fact now there is a rumor Biggs is in Rouge 1 thus making the cut scene in ANH totally invalid.

I'm pretty sure Biggs was in ANH.

Definitely because he greeted Luke on the way to the X-Wings, he flew an X-Wing, and then died in the trench run. He was also included in the deleted Scenes on the blue-ray Version from a few years back.

I meant the cut scene where he told Luke he was going to jump ship and join the rebellion not the Hanger scene which was re inserted and is cannon. Luke also mentioned Biggs in the scene about the Accademy to his uncle.

Just to clarify the Biggs scenes in ANH:

-In the original 1977 cut of the film, Biggs was only seen as a rebel pilot during the Death Star battle scene. Luke mentioned him during the dinner scene on Tatooine, and if you were a SW fan & read the book & novelization, you knew they were friends prior toe the Death Star battle scene. Plus, they kept Luke's "Beggar's Canyon" line during the DS trench run, which was a reference only Luke & Biggs would "get".

-In the 1997 SE cut of the film, they included a previously cut scene of Biggs meeting Luke @ the Rebel Hanger. Excellent scene, and IMHO it both somewhat solidified the fact that Luke was a great pilot & added poignancy to Biggs' death during the Trench run.

-There is also a cut scene (never in any version of ANH) in which Biggs briefly meets Luke @ Anchorhead in the beginning of the film. He talks about going off to join the Rebellion, etc. I'm glad the scene was cut from the film, since it would have both ruined the solid pacing of the movie, and would also have created a timing issue - i.e., how could Luke meet Biggs in the beginning of the film in which Biggs is still @ the Academy (assuming this is an Imperial academy) and then, a couple of days or a week later, Biggs has already joined the Rebellion?! Possible, I guess - but still stretching it. That being said, I don't know how long ANH was supposed to last. I.e., from the time that the droids landed on Tattoine to the ending victory celebration on the 4th Moon of Yavin, how much time passed?! Possibly a couple of days, a week, or maybe a little longer. I don't know how time works in the SW universe.

In any case, currently, the best place to see this deleted scene is on the special features of the Star Wars Saga Blu-ray set (great set, but that's another thread).

I know this is a long shot, but does anyone know where I could find this set? My son lost his Sabine, and I don't want to pay crazy eBay prices for a new one. It doesn't matter which helmet paint job it has. Thanks.

You'd have to pay too much right now. I would say hold off. Maybe she'll get re-released with the Force Awakens packaging. Otherwise, wait for her to be released featuring her new look.

The Biggs scene is ANH that was deleted was a great scene and I believe he mentions that he is a recent graduate of the Academy and that he and his friend are planning on deserting the Empire at their first port of call.

in the Radio Drama (Highly recommend getting these to all SW Fans.... added / deleted scenes and dialogue for the movies) Biggs is already at Anchorhead when Luke arrives there. the scene begins with Luke fixing a vaporator and witnessing the battle of the Devastator vs the Tantive IV over Tatoonie and rushes to Achorhead to inform Fixer (Tatoonie local / friend) about the battle. upon entering Fixer's dwelling he is reunited with Biggs who states that he got his commission as the Empire accelerated his courses and that he signed on with the starship Rand Ecliptic and is 1st Mate. later after Biggs and Luke leave Tosche Station Biggs confides in Luke that he and a friend are going to jump ship at their first port of call in the inner systems and join the Rebel Alliance.

if we look at this scene as 1 day in the movie, then the next day (day 2) Uncle Owen may have purchased the droids from the Jawa's. that night after Luke removes the restraining bolt from R2, R2 runs off to find Ben. (day 3) the next day Luke and Threepio track R2 in the landspeeder and meet up with the Sand People and Ben Kenobi, journey to Mos Eisley, meet Han Solo and begin the adventure that eventually leads to Luke reunited once again with Biggs in the Rebel Alliance hanger on Yavin IV.

I don't think the scene would have slowed down the movie at all and it would have set up for the emotional death of Biggs in the original cut of the film. the special edition made the death scene more emotional but again there was still a somewhat gap into these characters background/relationship. had they showed the scene at Tosche Station with Biggs I think the 5 minutes would have added to the film.

The Radio Drama for SW gave added scenes like the Tosche Station scene, Origins of Princess Leia, the Jabba the Hutt/ Han Solo scene (in which Jabba was replaced by a character called Heater he mentions hiring Boba Fett, there is more Jedi Training with Obi Wan, the interrogation of Princess Leia, a possible side plot of Admiral Motti informing Tarkin that he could use the Death Star to rule side by side with the Emperor, another scene with Luke and Biggs in the Rebel Hanger. some really great material. I think with all the scenes added to the Radio Drama it makes ANH 3.25 hours long.

they also did a Drama for Empire which makes it around 2.50 hours long and one for Jedi (which includes 2 scenes not in Jedi - one being Luke constructing his lightsaber in Ben Kenobi's house, and one of the Emperor conferring with Vader on Coruscant about the upcoming battle at Endor) and it's makes Jedi about 2.8 hours long.

I'd love if Disney and Lucasfilm would team up again with the BBC or something similar to them and give us Radio Dramas of the Prequels as well as The Force Awakens.

That would be awesome, specially "Awakens" (and I'm no fan of the movie). Imagine Kylo Ren's voice or the sheer terror of the people of the Republic planets when the huge blasts are coming.

It shouldn't be released as a podcast or some sissy mp3 to download from iTunes. A REAL old school radio transmission, then release it in any and all other formats.

I remember listening to "Return" in this format once. It felt a little awkward and busy at first, with the characters describing everything and all the sound effects, but you get used to it and after a while you are glued to your seat. I'm not sure, but I think most, if not all, the Star Wars cast was on it. I certainly remember Anthony Daniels.

Unfortunately that's not going to happen. After all, "Video Killed the Radio Star", remember?

I paid the ebay prices for this set. I managed to get Hera for an okay price, but a seller in Australia had Sabine and trooper for $30 + shipping. After losing three auctions for her that went above that, I figured I might as well go for it. It is easily double retail price, but she's the only member of the crew I don't have on the way.

This is a cool piece. I like how they made her with the trooper as well.
