New pics are coming out. Here's one. The Dark Trooper has neck damage for the spear to go through.

Price: $74.99

View attachment 427838

It actually seems like the spear itself is the part that is new and it's molded to go around the Darktrooper's neck. ie. you pop off the head and slide spear in and put head back on to look like he got stabbed in the neck.

*edit* after looking more closely, they probably included an alternate head as I see some black protuding out the back of the head when I zoom in.

Thanks for the link. Just as I expected, the Gideon's cape is just elastics holding it making it look highly inaccurate.

^ true, but there's the built-in "exclusive" tax. but viewing mando w/ flames, dark trooper, and moff w/ grogu, that's kinda like 3 delux sets so it kinda jives, it still sucks though, but price jives from that POV. $75 seemed to be the expected cost, no shocker

interesting, then it may been a blessing in disquise that amazon lowered their price testerday to match target's sale. I wasnt going to buy 2, but now i will keep amazon and target preorder and thus if there's 3 different head sculpts, then 3 "different" trooper, LOL

Looks like this set isn't going up for pre-order until later this year.

No spear looks damaged, or at least with added damaged bits.

Includes 4 figures (The Mandalorian, Grogu, Moff Gideon and Dark Trooper) and 10 entertainment-inspired accessories.

So we don't know yet the nature of exclusivity it seems?

Well, after seeing that Mando doesn't have updated hip joints and that it's $75, it's an easy pass. I may have sucked it up and got this if they updated his hip joints to be like the newer VC figures.
I was just going to say this.

I do like the look of Gideon's cape a little better, but not enough.

I do admit, the scene building photos look great with all the extra accessories, but yeah, have all of these (or will have in the case of Dark Trooper), so with so much product coming, I can easily call this one a pass like many of you.

Really tough to justify this set at that price:

The cape on Mando is still pretty bad
The hips on Mando are still old
The cape on Gideon looks bad
The hips on Gideon are among the worst of that old style

I was going to def pass if this was going to compete for my SDCC exclusive money but it seems as if I will have some time to make a decision.

Also I am a bit surprised how small the Death Trooper looks...

Looks like a Pulse exclusive. Probably around Pulse Con. From Pulse social:

"These figures will be available on #HasbroPulse in Fall 2022. Stay tuned for more details!"

All those accessories are really great and the pictures sell how they interact with these figures. That said, I'm with most of the room: can't justify $75 for what is functionally an accessory pack of capes, flames, baby handcuffs, a spear, and one alternate head.

I'm now wondering if this particular Din comes with the N-1. He would need soft goods to sit in it.

^ True but I hope not, rather see it include Peli and include a cape for any Din, lol

If it's available and I have the $ to spare, maybe. But I won't be sad if I can't get this.

Surely a beskar spear is worth $75??? Everyone's been demanding it!

Whistling birds:

$45.00

Beskar Spear:

$15

Grogu binders:

$15

It's a steal when you look at it that way!

Actually, the Grogu binders really make it a good deal as it's not Grogu binders, it's new set of Grogu arms that have the binders molded on, so that $15 also include arms too, and not just the binders.

Great deal if you ask me!

They need to make a soft goods Din more widely available if the plan on selling the N-1 to us.
I could imagine the actual DIn figure that's included with said vehicle, after all they don't release ships w/o pilots too often these days particularly if it's an Exclusive.
I also am guessing that we won't get a newly tooled hip version until a S3 release of some kind possibly as another exclusive. Perhaps a set where he's riding the Mythasour, which might possibly be 2023's HasLab.

And I'd be all over that. The HasLab wild card: something we haven't seen yet.

I feel like you and I have been suggesting that Mythosaur since that Mando episode of BoBF

^ Yep. Assuming it's reasonably sized and not Krayt Dragon sized.

Mando Season 3 already has potentially the Mythosaur and Bo's Gauntlet ship as early candidates.

For the prices Hasbro is charging, I'm cool with not tracking down these scene specific figures anymore, plus I don't want more Mando's in my collection, unless his outfit changes. TVC isn't a line where I want to buy multiple versions of the same characters anymore unless they are significantly different and warrant a purchase, it's just too much of the same, and the price is heavily inflated for what's being delivered. That being said, it's a good idea for an exclusive, so people can skip it without feeling they're missing anything.

The Dark Trooper definitely looks too small. Looks shorter than Din. Seems they have arranged the shots of Mando vs Dark Trooper to try to disguise the fact that the Dark Trooper is too small….Mando kneeling, Mando crouching, Mando in the background…

Pretty doubtful , besides Djarin is 5'11" while the Dark Trooper is 6'3", that is not a considerable difference for "two small".

Truth - maybe the scale is more accurate than it seems

I'm of the opinion now that they are working in conjunction with toy manufacturers (like in the past) to have synergy between what's on screen and what would eventually be on shelves (that droid from OWK as a prime example). Mando riding a Mythosaur can be an iconic moment and if the creature is "toyetic" they can sell plush!
