An interesting idea for sure, but I think it would then make it cost prohibitive for a basic card release. It does bring up the aspect if they ever do decide to make an all new EV-99 will they include the opening mouth feature that was present on the Vintage figure, or just forget that ever existed? And would Collectors even want such a thing today? After all it would likely interfere with the neck joint somehow same as R1 Pau figure.
Unless you already have VC23 and borrowed the poncho from a previous version of Endor Luke, which most of already did considering the gap in time since we've seen one.
We'll see who Periwinkle is very soon on the 8th I imagine.
Who do you think it is?
I'm still hoping it is Sim Aloo, to go with the upcoming Emperor. Maybe it's Thrawn. Another idea of who it could be is a repainted Mando into the Death Watch trooper.
Something should head our way for the holiday season...Some random thoughts here....
With EE pushing back my Ahsohka and Darth Maul until March, I have no preorders of figures due for the rest of this year. Almost four months with nothing expected (at this point). The next pre-order I have is the Amazon Bad Batch set in January and then Bo Katan and friends in February.
That is a long time until the next wave of figures come up. I guess there is the possibility that either the Emperor's Throne or whatever the Target periwinkle figure is could show up before the end of the year. It just seems like it will be a while to get some more TVC goodness at this point.
Hopeful, but every year it seems I am chasing something during Christmas season. Last year it was the Incinerator troopers, and Din Djarin in two scales.Not sure if you have some inside information or you are just being hopeful. Either way, I will join in with the enthusiasm!
last year the Mando Beskar wave squeaked in just before Christmas.The interesting thing is that the final wave always seems to get pushed into the next year so nothing new here if it happens again, but the wait times for something new is certainly having an affect.
