• 80’s will always rule

    When does this when come out I rarely buy the small ones but I do want this one I still need Krenik to go with this one.

  • Dennis Musgraves

    Does anyone else see this happen in 6 inch to go with kmart exclusive Jen Erso?

    • chad

      Well, seeing that both Jyn and Galen where on Eadu would make sense for a Kmart companion set for the Kmart Jyn exclusive. As for the 3.75 inch love the fact he comes with a mouse droid.

    • Bombadgungan

      Interesting. I had not thought of that.
      I did spring for the Kmart Jyn (Eadu) and think it is a great figure.

  • I will get this whenever I see it. Still waiting on the Bodhi wave. Mouse droid is ok, but would’ve liked this droid instead. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/32bacac839fd85802a257666b7f58803c4bc137f968c8d6a4be6350d406e3df4.jpg

    • RumDumb

      I never knew how much I liked droid figures until Hasbro cut back of them….the background droids

    • Bombadgungan

      Yes! SE-2!

    • CT-7567

      Good idea. Even if it was just a statue like the battle droids from those old overseas TPM two-packs it would still be a neat pack in.

  • RumSleg

    Looks pretty good. Now we just need to know what his assortment will look like.

  • RumDumb

    Ya know 5 POA sucks! But I have accepted it partially….sculpting IS better than 1990s era. But the one thing that I can’t accept, and it annoys the tar out of me, is the molded long shirts/tunics onto the legs. Please make it a separate piece of plastic. He doesn’t have to sit. And the arms are quite a bit like Resistance Poe too…and that not….good. Happy they did a Galen but certainly not a “good” figure.

    • Rykrof_Enloe

      Agreed 100%

    • Stereotypical Evil Archer

      He has to sit. I have 38 years of vehicles and playsets where compatibility is wanted and appreciated.

  • Shiro

    we needed kaecillius? sadly no doctor strange 3inch.

  • LaurenceQuint

    Wow, from the waist down, he’s identical to POT2 Tarkin. He’s the best figure of 1997!!!

    • Super Amigo

      And the Mouse Droid looks straight from POTF2 too!

  • LaurenceQuint

    Why is the color COMPLETELY wrong? This is worse than Resistance Rey??

    • Bombadgungan

      What color were you wanting?

      • LaurenceQuint

        Um, gray. The artwork depicts a gray and white outfit. The figure is green.

        • Bombadgungan

          The artwork is wrong. 😉

          Aside from the obviously white or black uniforms, what is the true color of an Imperial officer uniform? Am I the only one who has had confusion on this over the years? Is Grand Moff Tarkin’s uniform olive while the other officers’ uniforms are gray? In the Death Star briefing scene in ANH they all appear to be the same color/shade. Are they all gray but the dim lighting gives them a greenish hue? Are they olive but reflective light in some shots has them looking more gray? Are they all the same greenish gray color fabric to begin with? We’ve had action figures depicted both ways.

          As far as Galen Erso, the costume reference shot in the Rogue One Visual guide shows it to be more of an olive gray with an off-white or light gray with greenish hue yoke. At least that’s what I see.

          • LaurenceQuint

            Not having the dictionary, I’ll defer to you. But in the film (even though it’s dark and rainy), definitely looked just basic gray.

            Certainly you make a great point about the Imperial uniforms throughout. They appear varying shades of gray-green or green-gray and I don’t quite blame Hasbro for experimenting with different shades over the years.

            Definitely another “Han’s parka” situation. Don’t give one whit that the actual costume is brown in real life, on camera the damn thing is BLUE and always has been!!!!

        • General Hux

          Look at the Visual Guide, color is correct.

  • 80sRobot

    I guessed right! (That it would be Galen wearing his Imperial scientist uniform, not in his Lah’mu digs.)

  • Brux Macoy

    The Mouse droid may be out of scale but at least is a good try to add a little premium to the 5POA line. See Hasbro?… you could add a build a droid piece to this line, if we could get some droids (even 5POA droids) you would get a bit less complaints.

  • SlothFromHoth

    I think this is one of the most exciting 5POA releases Hasbro has done in a while. Glad to see we’re getting into some of the secondary characters before the line dries up.

  • Bumper Morgan

    No way I’m not buying 5POA.

    • so you are then?

      • CT-7567

        Is there another accessory next to the blaster? It looks like a small interrogation droid or I might just be seeing things.

        • Bombadgungan

          That’s a shadow…
          of the dark side. 😉

      • Bombadgungan

        Ah, those tricky double negatives! 🙂

  • Fiery Little One

    If I picked this up, it would be for the Mouse Droid. As was said, it looks to be in scale with the 6″ line, not the 3″ line.

  • General Hux

    SWEET!! Can’t wait! Love the look of this figure, I’ll be making some Imperial customs with this sculpt for sure!

    • CT-7567

      Plus the mouse droid is an accessory that actually makes sense, like Bohdi’s backpack. A good step in the right direction. Is there something else in the package next to the blaster? I’m not sure if I’m just seeing a shadow.

      • Tom P.

        It’s a reflection of the Mouse Droid.

    • Bombadgungan

      They did a great job with the face sculpt.

  • Mark

    I’m still waiting for the Bodhi Rook wave to show up. Showing the next-next wave already makes me anxious.

    • Brian Beck

      yeah same here. Bodhi does show up on Targets web site now (the only one of the new wave so far ) but not listed for sale yet.

      • Mark

        Yep Walmart has the pages for all but no stock. Brickseek confirms 0% stock at any Walmarts so I’m not sure how people are getting them in stores. Amazon has a couple for $15 but I’d rather wait until Walmart has too many wave 3’s like wave 1 and 2 is now.

    • General Hux

      I don’t even have Krennic, I’m getting really nervous!

      • Mark

        We have tons of wave 1 and 2 and our walmarts and targets. I would send him to you if cost + shipping wasn’t already the same as the Amazon price.

        • General Hux

          It’s weird, they have had every other figure in the wave every time I go, but the only Krennic I’ve seen had terrible Robot Chicken eyes.

          • Mark

            Haha I don’t recall mine looking particularly goofy in the eyes. My Walmart just put up 2 cases of TFA Ackbar, Bespin Luke, 5th Brother and Tasu Leech. I’m like, that’s the wrong direction.

          • Brian Beck

            Wow, that’s what my 5 Marts did except with their ‘exclusive’ line. they all got a crap ton of the Phasma and Ahsoka waves, and I do mean a crap ton, so I got screwed out of the shoretrooper 🙁

          • Mark

            There was a new SA Phasma and Ahsoka too! It’s like Hasbro is apologizing for the hard to find figures and rereleasing them.

          • Brian Beck

            Just got back from a quick scouting run to my local Target, and they reloaded the pegs……..with TFA figures ! Han. Poe, Rey, that wolfman thing, like really! I have a bad feeling about wave 3, to say nothing of this wave 4 figure.

          • Mark

            Haha are we in the same city? My local Target (frisco, tx) has restocked all the same TFA figures with Han and Resistance Rey leading the charge! I don’t think it’s a coincidence that WM and Target are suddenly stocking TFA figures, mostly the hard to find ones. Are these TFA 2nd edition printings maybe?

          • Bombadgungan

            I always thought Frisco was in California. 😉

          • Brian Beck

            I’m in MI, the northwest burbs of Detroit, so it looks kinda nationwide. I’m going on a bigger scout run on Sat to see what else is going on. If this trend continues I’m sure we’ll get this wave when the young Han Solo movie comes out 🙂

          • Mark

            This is promising. I did some price scanning and apparently only these are clearanced which is a little strange I guess. But either way there’s more room for new stuff! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/96c909ce46b35fcc49a126df2eb0a5557951048a082a3896791a32ec32ed8455.jpg

          • Bombadgungan

            Ackbar for two bucks??? I’ve never seen that one in the wild!

          • Mark
          • Bombadgungan

            Ooo… Resistance Rey!

          • Bombadgungan

            The TFA figures at Target are under a completely different DPCI than the RO figures, so orders and sales of one do not affect the other. It would be like saying we wont see the next wave of Matchbox because the Hot Wheels pegs are full.

          • Bombadgungan

            It’s weird, my closest Walmart stocked the heck out of the Shoretrooper wave (all snagged by one greedy fan), but the 2nd Walmart in town didn’t appear to get any and instead stocked the heck out of the TFA Han/Leia/Phasma wave, which was near impossible to find prior to that. Talk about uneven distribution!

          • Bombadgungan

            Krennic was by far the hardest to find in the wave for me. He did finally show up at a few Targets around town a couple of weeks ago, long after this wave initially appeared.

          • General Hux

            I hope I can find him soon!

          • Bombadgungan
          • Bombadgungan

            I hope you do too! He’s a great figure for 5-POA. Near perfect likeness, removable pliable-plastic cloak, separate pliable plastic lower tunic and working holster.

  • Rykrof_Enloe

    I like this quite a bit, but wow, I am so dang sick and tired of the reduced POA.

    I also am having a bit of trouble recalling his zip line scene, maybe I should have paid closer attention to the movie…

    • General Hux

      Galen doesn’t really need hella articulation IMO, I think it looks quite good!

      • Rykrof_Enloe

        He could certainly benefit from a separate tunic piece like they did with Krennic. The style they chose really detracts from the figure… too early POTF2-ish.

        • General Hux

          I see your complaint, makes sense. But I really like this figure. 🙂

        • reminds me of that 2-pack poe dameron from a few months back. I hope this isn’t a trend they continue.

  • Bombadgungan

    Well how about this? So I was wrong. I could have swore this was going to be a Lah’mu version of Galen.

    • 80sRobot

      And I guessed right! 🙂 (That it would be Galen wearing his Imperial scientist uniform.)

      Now I hope my other two wishes/predictions come true:

      General Merrick (single-carded, or he could be packed with a repaint of the classic Kenner X-Wing — maybe Hasbro will try to implement a Nerf shooter into the mold)

      Jyn, Lah’mu (AKA Young Jyn) — single-carded; they could pack with her that small white helper droid (which looks like a modified Prequel era pit droid) seen on the Erso homestead.

      • RumSleg

        I’d really like a General Merrick. And I hope he’s smiling like when he blew up the AT-ACT on Scarif.

        • CT-7567

          Yup, I want a Merrick figure too. Actually there are a ton of figures from RO that would make sweet figures.

          • RumSleg

            I agree there are a ton that would be fun, but since we’re in the A New Hope era, Hasbro has generally covered a lot of the obvious generic ones (X-Wing pilots, Imperial officers, Tantive IV troopers)

            Off the top of my head, a list of Rogue One figures I want (not including upcoming releases like Galen, Raddus, Saw, Two Tubes):

            General Merrick
            Sergeant Melshi
            Lieutenant Sefla
            Cassian in his blue vestFemale U-Wing Pilot (blue flight suit with the different chest box)
            Tarkin
            Mon Mothma
            General Draven
            Bail Organa

          • General Hux

            Don’t be surprised if Merrick is coming in a Two-Pack with a Shoretrooper.

            Actually, I would expect that to happen

        • General Hux

          Or screaming when he was shot down by the Tie Striker. 🙂

        • That was a great moment. Now there is someone who likes his job.

  • Epc

    Mouse Droid, nice!
    Maybe the photo quality but he seems off in his likeness is off and the uniform is a bit too greenish? Eh, i’ll get him anyway.
    Hope to see Sefla revealed soon after this.

  • K-2SO

    There is a 97.6% chance that I’m getting this figure.

  • Lindsey Freeman

    Interesting accessory choice considering there was never a mouse droid in the scenes on Eadu

  • K-2SO

    I think its a good figure and i like the fact that they include a mouse droid.

  • Wow and they even threw in a Mouse droid, granted its in the 6″ scale, but still really nice of hasbro
