What is it they've sent us?
Hope.

The Vintage Collection is returning in Spring 2018!
Rejoice!
It's a mainline, not store exclusive and the figures will be SA (Super articulated).
One confirmed so far: Rey (Previously released in the Walmart TBS Line).

Who do you want to see?
TBS 6" reveals at Celebration include:

Clone Commander Gree
Thrawn
Tarkin and an included Interrogator Droid.
Jaina Solo

A SDCC Thrawn was shown with many accessories, including a Jedi Temple Guard Helmet.


TBS 6" Vehicles:
Rey's Speeder with a new Rey with softgoods.
Luke's Landspeeder.

It's unclear if the regular release of Luke's Landspeeder comes with the partially new Farmer Luke including his helmet and cloak.


No TLJ TBS 6" were shown.
5poa will continue for TLJ but after that TVC will be back in Full force.

Did it, slight delay because of Line of Duty, Fella.

My choices seem a little weird but I want all these figures. I feel a little guilty not including any OT choices but I haven't got any I really want that wouldn't already be coming. (Emperor Palpatine hopefully will).

-Count Dooku long overdue. Nice to see an update.
-Ventress would be nice to see a realistic version
-Nute Gunray/Rune Haako, TPM is my favourite film- I need these guys to capture. It's crazy we didn't get these for the 2012 3D Release.
-Cad Bane could come with alternate heads with pipes/non pipe head. Or his two different appearances.
-Panaka is almost "Tonnika sister" level because of actor likeness.

Satele Shan was once on the cards so somewhere, someplace Hasbro might have some of the initial designs unless they have lost them.
On that subject- figures that were designed but were never released:
Lobot
Captain Rex (looked amazing).

I know those two off the top of my head but can anyone remember anymore.

How about the fucking Rogue One figures and At-St that never got released outside of that one random Walmart in Minneapolis?

Nice, anon; I'd buy nearly every figure on that list. Bane, Shan, Ventress, Krennic and Ahsoka especially. I'd probably skip a Gunray/Haako just because I still like my original TPM Gunray and don't really need SA for him, but more power to anyone who wants a new one- it's pretty damn weird he didn't get an updated figure there.

Reposting my own for the new thread, just 'cuz.
>>
>>6282771
I haven't got those TPM figures so it's a little selfish because they don't need to do much but SA is always a positive. With modern technology these guys would be cool to see.

For yours I don't really want BF 2 character x because I don't know her. A BF inspired pack with her, a rebel, an imperial would be fun to see.

>Yup. At this time the line is only two waves and a boxed set - and Vader's only in that set. For those who don't know, the boxed Early Bird set stand includes Darth Vader on a matching Vintage cardback. So if you want a set of 12 carded figures, you'll need to violate that set.

I think she looks fine, turned out quite well actually.

>>6283827
Nope. I might actually preorder a whole wave just to get this one.
>>
>>6283847
Pilot suit limits her general usefulness as a character, purple lightsaber because why, main character of a dark time for SW (and I like EU stuff, but it was still crap).

I guess if you want edgy genderflip pilot Luke, it's alright.
>>
>>6283827
I wish she weren't in the flightsuit, but she looks alright. That helmet might be a little big though.
>>
>>6283852
Depends on what you use her for.

We probably won't get Jacen or any Vong so it's going to be a standalone figure.

An 6" X-Wing is unlikely but I don't mind.

I brought Ello Asty the other day and he's great.

>>6283860
I'm probably still butthurt over the blatant pollstuffing over Starkiller or Darth Talon. Starkiller would have been okay, but it would be too similar to Ren and Revan if they went with his best costume (the Darth Stalker ones), Talon would have been great, first female Sith in 6 inch, sexy look that's an easy sell and would look great next to Darth Maul, Kylo Ren, or Darth Revan, an alien character.

She was almost in TFA, too...
>>
>>6283827

So is this Kylo Ren's sister or what?
>>
>>6283889
No.

Yes, she is the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia (one of three kids they had) in the old EU, but she's not in the TFA-timeline.
>>
So I look at my Mafex Vader, then look at the 40th Anniversary Black Series, and I honestly don't get why people are falling over themselves trying to track this thing down. Is it the lower price point?

Am I missing something here?
>>
>>6283885
Oh I understand anon. My first choice was Talon.

Jaina was my second pick so her winning wasn't too much of a problem for me.
>>
>>6283852
>purple lightsaber because why

I dunno I guess it's probably because she uses a purple lightsaber, but I'm not a professional
>>
>>6283955
But why does she use a purple lightsaber in the first place? What's wrong with the classic blue or green? Is it really necessary to have a donut steel color? Mace Windu got it because it was Samuel L Jackson. I don't get why Revan's second saber is purple either. I don't recall purple being a color in the KOTOR game. There were two exclusive sabers that were bronze and cyan colored.

Whatever. Jaina using a purple lightsaber just adds to the snowflake aspect of her, which is more of a detriment than a positive.

I loved those little playsets. Not the head-cases, but the little scenes. There was definitely Endor, Tatooine, and Hoth.

>>6283900
Personally I'm just gonna wait for rogue one mafex vader, seems like it blows both of them out of the water, and he's almost the same price as the stupid set.
>>
>>6283971

Purple was in KOTOR and the Revan figure is specifically based on the Revan model/appearance from KOTOR II, which had him using a red and purple saber.

And Jaina uses a purple saber because she had a purple saber in the specific set of novels her figure is based on, from when Jacen was off being a cockass.

Definitely not that. The new BS only comes as a pack-in with a stand and costs 40 bucks, which is the same price the Mafex goes for on Amazon.
>>
>>6283982
>Revan model/appearance from KOTOR II, which had him using a red and purple saber.
I don't remember Revan making an appearance in KOTOR 2, but I only played through it once (crappy beginning, great middle, crappy ending). All I remember of Revan is Kreia talking about him in the beginning and you could correct Kreia about Revan's gender. But he could have popped up like you described. Or maybe it was his TOR look.

>she had a purple saber in the specific set of novels her figure is based on
Legacy of the Jedi was a terrible run of books, especially for Jaina. Unimportant in the first half, then in the second half she is trained by Boba Fett to become the Sword of the Jedi and then is back to being unimportant except maybe marry Fel so we could have the Empire in the Legacy comics.

But whatever, that's just like, My opinion, man. Thanks for the response.

So fan fics are getting characters now...

Why don't they reissue characters like Storm Troopers occasionally as filler?
>>
>>6284062
You can never have enough Troopers
>>
>>6284062
This is my biggest question about Black Series. Why not reissue Storm Trooper (or the very expensive Sand Trooper)? Why not add a fresh run of Darth Maul or Boba Fett? The tooling is done, the figures are long unavailable, the fans want them. It would be so easy to slap one old in-demand figure in a new wave - guarantee sales, extend the life of the line, keep fans happy. I don't get it.
>>
>>6284070

Yes, especially older figures now that the line has more traction. Like they put out 3PO at Wal-greens but didn't bother to do any sort of R2 reissue.

Gee, sorry to trigger you guys with modern vernacular.

I didn't really find her that bad until Legacy of the Jedi thing with the Mandalorian training and Sword of the Jedi shit. Giving her a purple lightsaber (an almost unique color) does add to her to what would be called today a 'snowflake'. It's got nothing about her being a protag or a female.

I personally believe Hasbro is going to phase out the Black Series 6" line. Collector interest has been falling greatly over the past few years.

The market cant support two collector focused lines.

Yeah, which is why I personally am holding out for an Empire Leia.
>>
>>6284788
Quite the opposite actually. The Black Series stuff sells quite well, Hasbro is just retarded and overships/stocks the figures that are least popular and then doubles down on those figures. Every time. Jyn and Cassian are pegwarming so hard because Hasbro put them in like 3 or 4 different wave assortments and made them the most common ones in every case. All the ones that people actually want then never get stocked because stores refuse shipments with so much unsold stock sitting there. At this point all the stores in my area are basically still just sitting on stock from before Rogue One even hit theaters because they just kept getting shipment after shipment of two characters that have no demand. People want BS, but Hasbro's unbelievable incompetence alone is fucking it all up.
>>
>>6284788
>Collector interest has been falling greatly
Would be nice if I could actually find something other than Finn, Cassian, and Jyn Erso. Then my interest might be a bit higher.

Bearing in mind we probably won't get a 6" Jacen I was thinking you could make a decent Jacen Solo custom TBS 6" figure with Bespin Luke's body as the base.
You would need to paint that to the brown colour he wears.
You would need to sculpt and print a head, and then paint it.
You would also have to sculpt his Lightsaber and print that off- you can get away with just the handle and then use the blade to slot into it, so negating the need to print a blue blade.
And you would need to somehow make him slightly taller because he's taller than Luke (1.72 Metres vs Jacen's 1.79 Metres). This I'm not sure how to do, so I might leave that.

I'm thinking of doing it but anyone got any better ideas/tips?

Never really done any custom work at all, nor sculpted anything or painted anything. I'd probably try and commission the painting of the head but the sculpting I would try and do- and I have access to a 3d printer. I have no idea what paint to even use to give him a nice brown wash.

Actually giving her a purple lightsaber doesn't make her special at all.

Giving her a simple blue or green one like Luke would've made her a special snowflake in the New Jedi Order.

Is this shit rare or something? There's a few at my Walgreens as well.

Damn, that sticker. Walgreens is getting serious about this toy game huh. Funny thing is though, I've only ever seen one Walgreens that was actually decently stocked with toys. More often than not, I find...well, pretty much what you'd expect to find at any drugstore. A few beat-up action figures amongst rubber balls and cap guns and shit. I went to every Walgreens near me looking for Black Series and Marvel Legends and Titans Return, and came up damn near empty.

>>6285623
It was just the head that needed fixing and coupled with the coverage even on some more normie oriented sites they probably felt pressured to do it fast enough.

>>6285620
They announced they would do a change during San Diego Comic Con where everyone started complaining. I know that you can't trust them but holding off on the figure for a while was possible and I am glad I did that.

Commander Grees helmet (who funnily enough gets his own figure but has a different color scheme between the two)

So I guess the argument that Hasbro has "god tier sculptors" and that the paint is ALWAYS the issue is no longer true?

Yeah a TVC line one. Number 98.
He's alright- found him cheap in the remnants of TVC line when it went to clearance stores.
The face sculpt is okay but is not great- it's hard to describe but he doesn't look old enough.
The green colour for his uniform is the wrong shade.
The softgoods skirt looks a little weird.

This is a baffling question to me. Action figures are worth what you decide they're worth. Some people wouldn't pay more that $10 for a paltry bit of articulated plastic. Some people are willing to pay upwards of $300 for something they want.

As for me, I'd buy Jyn at that price if I didn't already get her for 8 on Amazon. I'm quite happy with it. The joints are a bit soft, but it looks good overall. I needed more bodies for my Rebels shelf anyway, and an $8 Jyn fits the ticket.

Boy that's a weird thread. Seems to be several people saying "I'm excited to pay more for new VC figures" and everyone predicting prices around 12-16 dollars and they're fine paying that much. Then like one guy wondering why the large price increases when they were paying about half that for VC figures a few years ago.

It does seem odd when maybe 5 or 6 years ago you could go into wal-mart or Target and buy a SW figure with decent articulation (minus the swivel hips) for about 6 dollars, and GI Joe could be had for about 7-8 dollars. Now $7 gets you a 5 POA lump.
>>
>>6288171
probably because back then star wars figures were star wars figures and didn't come with useless hunks of plastic for "added play value", combine that with ever rising prices and you get 5 POA lumps

Mafex was my #1 Vader for a long time, but after getting the new black series I realise he's just too skinny and his head/face is too small. The extra articulation is nice but I don't really feel it's necessary for a character like Vader. I miss the extra hand options but overall I'm happier with the beefier looking black series on my shelf.

That being said, the Mafex Vader is pretty cheap compared to the new BS so it depends on how much you want to spend and what you want from the figure.
>>
>>6288313
Probably the Mafex or Black Series 40th (you might get raped in shipping for the latter).

Personally, I'm still holding out hope Bandai will redo their SHF someday...
>>
>>6288349
In terms of pricepoint, sculpt and details I'd say the old Mafex still has the edge, at least until Hasbro decides to re-release theirs in normal packaging.
>>
>>6288349
I put the model kit head on the Mafex and it looks decent but it also makes him look a bit scrawnier. I want that 40th bs one for sure.

SHF is the worst, helmet far too small and coupled with SHFs average smaller scale it's worse.

Mafex from 2014 or the 450$ Black Series with Stand. The Mafex Rogue One Vader has a weird crotch cushion (albeit 100% correct to the movie) and ROTS Vader is worst Vader costume.

13€ per 3 inch figure (VTC and 5POA are the same price)
25€ per 6 inch figure

> 2017
18 to 24€ per 3 inch figure, only available in TRUs or you order cases directly from the import firm but only if you are a seller yourself
35€ per 6 inch figure

This is also the reason why I prefer model kits. All of those 6 inch figure kits are like 20-25€ on Ebay with free shipping.

I got the 40th anniversary Vader. The fact that his head can pop on and off brings many possibilities to the table.

That guy is a dumb piece of shit. I'm overjoyed that Ben Skywalker won and I'm a collector. Fuck him.
>>
>>6288873
It's not over yet.
Ben isn't the winner.

I agree somewhat though- he is a little crazy- some of his ideas for figures to be repacked are beyond insane.
Toryn Farr for instance who you can still find in some shops in the UK but because it's TVC it will sell and it needs to be on a Vintage card.

Ben Skywalker isn't an exciting figure. He hasn't really got anything going for him like Jacen or Jaina but I do think he should (should've got) get a figure at some point. It's just that Hasbro's license runs out in 2020, that's 2 years of TVC. It's entirely possible that this is the Last Hurrah and so figures that need an update need to be made asap (like Yak Face and ROTJ Emperor). Ben Skywalker is a "could look like anybody" character.


I recently brought about 6 Nom Anor figures to army build but if they rereleased him/slightly changed the head sculpt and painted him in a different colour- green then you could release him with a New Ben or repack Jacen and Jaina.
I thinking of ordering more Nom Anor's but the seller bumped his prices up.

I think It's a foregone conclusion that Hasbro gets to keep the license in 2 years. I don't see Lucasfilm and Disney going elsewhere instead of renewing their partnership so I really wouldn't worry about it. I also never got any of those EU figures back in the day and Ben Skywalker was the best character in Fate of the Jedi (still upset we'll never get closure to his love story with Vestara, that was good shit). I desperately want Jacen/Darth Caedus and some Vong.

>>6288947
why is it the mafex and revo look better but lack the red light the black series and model kit do? its like they bothered going to such lengths to make it look better but left out the easiest yet most essential aspect of his design. makes them look dull compared to the model kit.

The Mafex has a clear piece of plastic. You could paint it red if you really wanted. Or put an LED inside the dome.

I'm not to sure.
Disney's Droid factory line seems to be getting more ambitious and with figures on cardbacks and a planned Jawa Sandcrawler coming, Disney might decide to do figures in house.

A few years ago there were rumours of Disney buying Hasbro.

It's a shame that the NJO/FOTJ stuff won't get more figures.

Got a TVC Darth Malgus on the card slightly damaged for £23 on Ebay today.

Yes. They were, in my honest opinion, the absolute best Star Wars comics of all. Zayne is a fantastic character. Just thinking about it makes me want to read them again.

I agree, Kenner/Hasbro has had the toy license for as long as there have been Star Wars toys. There's no way they stop making toys for SW, at LEAST they will always continue to make 3 3/4"
>>
>>6289758
Because Hasbro own the transformers brand and they get to keep 100% of toy profits. Star Wars and Marvel give them much smaller profit margins because they pay for the license.

Someone please help. UK ANON

Looking to buy Disney Celebration Orlando exclusive Chopper on EBAY.

The seller has it for:
US $28.75
Approximately £22.39

and
Shipping is
US $12.86 (approx. £10.01)

Plus this:
Import charges:
US $10.49 (amount confirmed at checkout)

What are these Import charges?

The purchase isn't above the £39 UK customs fee limit so why do I have to pay an import charge?

*Is that Ebay's doing because it's shipped through them?


It'll will end up costing £40. Wew lad.

So I've got this:

Ebay:
Import charges are in addition to the customs duties and taxes imposed by country tax and customs officials.

And because the VAT tax is on the:
-the price paid for the goods
-postage, packaging and insurance
-any duty you owe
That makes it over the £39 threshold so I have to pay 20% VAT which would be an additional £8.

But I don't have to pay Custom duty:

Type and value of goods Customs Duty
Anything under £135 No charge

So final figure £48

Have I worked that out correctly?

I don't know if this Chopper is even worth that.
>>
>>6290356
>The purchase isn't above the £39 UK customs fee limit so why do I have to pay an import charge?

The limit is £15 anon.

Don't buy from American sellers on ebay if you're in the UK, trust me. I bought something last month which came to £30 including shipping, I got charged £15 in fees. Not worth it. Wait for one to show up in the UK, or buy from somewhere like Jungle or Mandarake.
>>
>>6290441
I understand anon.
£39 is if it's marked as gifts.
£15 is if it's not.

But that >>6290394 will still apply so £48?

I would buy elsewhere but it's Celebration Orlando exclusive so not much choice.
>>
>>6290356
Normally Ebay items only say something about import duties because they are part of the Ebay Global Shipping programme.

If it is then the amount you pay is 52,10 US$ (28,75+12,86+10,49).
Ebay Global Shipping program makes it so you pay the import tax right and the item ships directly to you. It's basically a guarantuee that you don't have to go to customs to get your shit.

I ordered an item like that once and it happened like described but my countries customs percentages are as follows:

Bought:
+19% (taxes) when 26,30€ or above
+ 7% (toll / customs) when 150€ or above (on top of the 19%)

Gift:
+19% (taxes) when more than 40€
+7 % (toll / Customs) when more than 150€ (on top of the 19%)
>>
>>6290450
That sounds fair but then on the Global Shipping Page it says:


Import charges are in addition to the customs duties and taxes imposed by country tax and customs officials.

So am I getting the customs/VAT fee in the GSP import charge or not?

>>
>>6290457
I seriously think my first post >>6290450 is correct in that you wont have to pay any more on top of the 52,10$.

When clicking the question mark next to the Import Charges line in this random auction:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NIB-LEGO-10243-CREATOR-PARISIAN-GLOBAL-SHIPPING-Modular-Town-Building-MINT-BOX-/322473050621?hash=item4b14e441fd:g:YFQAAOSwdGxXI60U
I get this text block which is the same as back when I ordered something via Global Programme in August.

This amount includes applicable customs duties, taxes, brokerage and other fees. This amount is subject to change until you make payment. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. For additional information, see the Global Shipping Programme terms and conditions

I think whatever you found is some kind of ass-covering clause so they don't have to give you money in case the mail cashes in a second time.

Though I would say >>6290441 is somewhat right and you should wait instead of paying quatruple the price. I would think they would re-release those moulds in the revived TVC line or some other widely available way. A complete figure being made only for a convention is pretty rare.

Uhm. I don't know. I may risk it, I may not. £50 is alot for one Chopper figure. But then I don't want to regret not buying it if in a few years it's expensive.
Being in the UK- It won't reach it here- I'm not going to a Disney park anytime soon either.

It would be better if they just released it in the TVC line but because it's Disney are they even allowed to do that? I wouldn't count on that happening.

I like the TCW and Rogue One sets as well but custom fees and shipping would kill me.

>>
>>6285645
Not always the case

the golden age shit from 2006-2012ish had a lot of scenarios where the newer figure might improve in one area but lack in another. E.g you had funny shit like 2005 rots dooku being one of the definitive 3.75 dookus to this day due to the head sculpt and the way the plastic and soft goods are separate garments, which give them a realistic contrast among each other. Or how you might want a 30tac anakin with swivel arms instead of a tvc one with balljoint arms because the tvc anakin has an atrocious headsculpt and arms that are too long while the 30tac actually has an amazing likeness albeit a little less movement. There's a bunch of stuff like this that you have to be alert for. Like, a galactic marine from the battlefront II pack is a different shade of crimson than the more movie-accurate 30tac figure. Or the question of which version of Ventress do you want? The newest comic pack variant which is based on the republic comics or a different one from a battlepack that is actually slightly taller than the rest and has her genddywars 2003 outfit, but has no soft goods whatsoever. It was always a case by case basis with each figure. There was room for personal preference.
