The difference is there is actual product under that sign. Well stocked shelves. In the US, the shelves would either be empty or only a few things on them.
You also don't want a kid to play with a product that was produced with lower quality and likely untested for safety materials. Something bootleg buyers and sellers forget or just ignore.I managed to pick up a bootleg Boba Fett #06 from eBay this week. I should have done my research first as one of the tell tale signs on the packaging was just about visible in the photos. Still, the seller refunded immediately and claimed they had no idea. I'm not sure how much I believe that given how quickly the refund came (it seems like they might have been seeing if they could get away with it). Anyway, they said give it to a charity shop rather than return it, but I'm thinking it would be better to take it out of circulation. A charity shop won't want to knowingly sell a bootleg, and I don't want someone else unwittingly buying it thinking it's genuine.
is there anything else going up for pre order other than the leia? kinda sucks, i wanted to been able to order the tvc ahsok and death watch trooper from wed's launch and this leia for free shipping via pulsr, now the death watch troop is oos to reorder and cancel 1st orderI saw the reminder about the Hasbro pulse potf2 ceremonial Leia that’s going up for preorder tomorrow. Now I am getting rusty: this is the first time they’re doing this outfit in this scale, right? And will this be released in the main line regular packaging or is this the only way to get it?
I feel bad for the boxed/carded collectors that Mayfield is packaged with his helmet on.
Hasbro only has to pay royalties to Bill Burr if someone buys the figure and opens it. They don’t owe him anything until someone sees his face. It will save them a ton of money with the MOC collectors.Yeah, that was a pretty boneheaded decision.
“Should we showcase the accessories this figure comes with and show off the face of the character so you can tell that it’s a figure in disguise? Nah.”
Not yet.Is this full wave up for preorder anywhere yet?
Just got my new Jyn and Baze (Gamestop Canada). Jyn looks fantastic as we'd expect (cant decide whether to keep the headscarf on now, where as before it was a case of covering up as much as possible!).
Baze though - wow - way better than I expected. I actually thought to the original Baze and Chirrut weren't too bad (just before photoreal iirc?). In hand side by side though, he's SO much better. He also has none of the shininess we see with photo real (Jyn has a bit).
No, sculpt wise exactly the same. Although (and I hadnt noticed from the pics), his jumpsuit is now olive green with a very light brown wash. Before it was more of a grey with a heavier wash. I think its a little darker than the movie version but versions both look fine to me.Good to hear! One thing I do want to know, though: does Baze have his right shoulder pad?
