Me: What there is a Bad Batch 4 Pack? Awesome! (looks in that thread) WTF Is this!?Besides Hasbro’s horrible attempt at a Bad Batch 4 Pack, ......
An actual Bad Batch 4 pack... what figures from The Bad Batch tv show would you love to see made in the Vintage Collection?
And there in lies the problem, while on one hand it's good to get cross merchandising with characters etc. It also become a problem for Hasbro to choose which content to release it under I think, because it's no secret that certain individuals will want it from a certain source. I mean what if they do release a Blurrg and it's labeled Bad Batch? Yet most of the fans want it labeled The Mandalorian? For a lot of us it doesn't matter because we open it up so what it says on the packaging is immaterial, but for others it's everything.
I for one love when a character, creature or vehicles gets cross promoted in various media because I feel it increases the chances of a release/reissue. Which is why I've long wanted Clone Wars era like Gunships reused in current media because I'd like to see some of those pulled out of mothballs. Especially the mini rigs that I never saw!
I've wanted a Cham Syndulla since TCW days as well as Hera Syndulla, so it would be nice if this helped get us those figures though I suspect it wont. Hera may likely show up in Ahsoka though so there's hope. While I have no interest in Rampart, at least it would get a Imperial Officer sculpt out again after a decade of being MIA. When I look at VC05 AT-AT Commander I see a great base for IO's with them just needing to redo the lower belt/tunic, redesign the rank badge so it's not quite so bulky looking and they could makes update several figures like Jerjerrod, Motti, Needa(?) and a few others. As well as remold in all black plastic for a few ANH characters. They could literally update almost all of them at this point, not that it will happen at least not without multipacks. Then make an all new mold for Tarkin, Thrawn, Piett.
If bad Batch were a show that was going to span a few seasons then could see Hasbro possibly making a dedicated line for certain characters and vehicle reissues would come into play for that era.
Yeah you would think Clone Force 99 is a must considering it's their show. lol And I'm sure they're coming and that this 4-pk was likely just something they threw together quick with with they had available to get some type of coverage on the show. Part of me want them to come in a multipack though so as to not take up so darn many slots in TVC proper, not to mention how long it will take to actually complete said team. Based on how many new sculpt come out yearly I suspect it would take almost 3 years to get them all as singles, that is if you still want new character from other media as well.The Bad Batch 4-pack on Amazon is fine. I’d rather that the repaints of minor characters are an exclusive set so that the primary characters can receive new tooling in the main line.
The obvious wants are Hunter, Crosshair, Tech, Wrecker, Echo, and Omega.
More odd-ball choices might be Cad Bane and his droid, Kaminoans, Cyd (spelling?), Caleb Dume, and especially Depa Billaba. Every Jedi Council member deserves the premium articulation treatment. But her only figure was a salt-shaker with no lightsaber, in a Jedi Council screen scene, even though she can’t sit in a chair.
Something that Marvel seems to be able to pull of very smoothly, just look at their D+ shows and how soon Pre-orders go up after the final episode!It’s a challenge for them, I’m sure. But these shows are released far enough apart that the Hasbro design team should be able to put together small waves of four or even quarterly waves of six without being overwhelmed by too many simultaneous demands.
that was before mando. things have changed dramatically over the last couple of years.It's hard not to compare to TVC 1.0. Patrick even said in an early TVC 2.0 q&a that the line won't return to those glory years. The market simply isn't the same.
True, which is why we're seeing strides in the right direction.that was before mando. things have changed dramatically over the last couple of years.
