Star Wars Black Series 3 3/4 figs

That's the problem with releasing a new SW movie every year, they don't let things breathe. Also depending on what scale you collect or how you collect, if you collect 6" with the exception of Leia, Luke and maybe Maz Kanata all the relevant characters were made. The 3 3/4 line did better in getting more characters out but they are still missing Luke. Most probably Hasbro is sneaking in some Force Awakens figures in the Rogue One line.

That's what kills me about the 6" line (sorry I know this is 3.75 discussion) but they made Constable Zuvio????(yes, this again)....they skipped Leia & Luke..C3PO???.....Hell, even the 2 pilots that Finn was going to run away with were wayyyyyyy cooler than CZ?.....they couldn't make the Red Faced guy! cmon mahhn...Maz would've even been more welcome I feel....at this point I would've bought Snap Wexley before CZ.....whew.....rant over....I feel you Belmont13 they just seemed to be spinning too many wheels trying to produce these lines there's little breathing room....there are far too many old Trilogy (6") figs that need to be made before the newer heroes imop but I know ultimately Toys are made because of TV shows & Movies.....

I don't know... I feel that they wait too long to bring figs out, like this force Friday crap, then after that, we only get a handful of waves... even of its 5 PoA crap, I wish they'd still pump out a eave every month or so... man, we're we spoiled with the 30th anniversary line, I don't think it'll ever be that good again.

I'm guilty...I can't walk the line...hypocrite...non-believer...agitator...I voted w/my wallet when it came to 3.75" Black figs(I never really bought them)...they were at one time $15 down to $13 then occasionally $10...since Walmart is the exclusive distributor, as is my understanding, Walmart is the only game in town, so in most of my WM's, they were stuck w/20 Admiral Akbar's ( I didn't ask for that fig by the way) & old Man Han's galore.........just a few years ago GI Joe's 3.75 lines resurgence gave me hope that SW figs would get some high quality articulated figs someday soon...the 5 POA figs weren't my bag so I never really bought those unless I really liked the sculpt & fig overall....but at $13 plus tax, Coupled w/the fact I was actively buying 6" black figs which are very spendy, 3.75" Black figs were out, unless they dropped the price..I feel like a grampa complaining about the old days & the old prices...lol...I muttered like Homer Simpson in a Righteous tone "shh I'd buy them all if they were 5 buxx"......well....today at WallyWorld, I ran across the $5.63 clearance sale...the line up was, Cassian, Jinn, 2 Scarif Troops, 2 Death Troopers ( I snagged one) 15 Admiral Snackbars, couple of those figs of the that smooth space pirate turned space mining baron Lando Dee Williams(which I can't believe I didn't get)....even a Smurf Princess Leia or two....I coulda spared a 20 & some change for the Empire but I just snagged up one lonely Death Trooper...I was amazed at my restraint cause I liked the tiny Scariff troops at first but after looking at them I put them back, I felt they were lacking something....so then I walked away like David Bruce Banner at the end of a shameful Incredible Hulk episode, like the time the Hulk ate 2 entire dairy cows & couldn't pay for his atrocity.....or that time he saved the whole town from being destroyed by a wild fire & then the bank which was saved & still open, foreclosed on everyone anyway......I could hear the sad piano keys playing as I kept walking.....6 & some change is fairly affordable for those figs... I'll never forget how tiny Jyn Erso looked dead inside but her small tiny piece together sniper rifle looked fuggen coolio.......

Thanks for the update. Up top on that page is also a link for the others in the wave: Sandtrooper, Tusken Raider, and Walrus Man.

 

I have no real need for a Baba Fett that didn't quite make it to the screen and I have those other three. It's always nice to have a few of those sand troops but I'm holding off for now. Now I just have to wait a year and see what articulated 3.75" trickle out next.

The wave with articulated old Luke is out. At my Walmart at least. I found the leftovers which consisted to two Rosie Riveters and no one else. And man, I could tell you a long story about the ineptitude of Walmart workers but I don't want to get angry again so I'll hold off.

 

Anyway, if anyone happens across 3.75", super articulated, Walmart old Luke and is thinking of me, I could definitely use one.

I scored an articulated "Old Luke" earlier this evening at a Walmart while on mini-vacation...sorry, yojoe...I only found the one Luke. If I ever find him again, I'll definitely grab him for you...

 

Incidentally, I also found the 40th Anniversary 6-inch Vader with display stand on clearance there for fifteen bucks. Glad I stalled on the original price...

Eeh... wait for target clearance on that, lol.

Off-topic, but Joe...where did you find that avatar?! I love it!! That was always one of my favorite Marvel issues way back when. That's so awesome...

Snagged most of the newest 3.75" Walmart wave. Old Luke, new red guard, and Stormtrooper with the nifty nabber accessory. Old Luke was the one I wanted most by far, picked up the other two just because. Rosie the Rebel was there but I held off for now, she's going to be the peg warmer so no rush.

 

This is the TRUE Star Wars scale, IMO, and though there are more 5 poa available to buy, I just can't get into them. I want to POSE my figures. So until the next walmart figures trickle out, I'm set.
