    Wow, this is totally out of left field! A cool item that I’m very interested in. But alas, the size has got me having second thoughts.

  • Brian B.

    Would be a real shame if the headgear isn’t completely removable and there’s only half of a newly sculpted face underneath it. Current BS Rey isn’t bad, but when they say things like “100% newly sculpted” I can’t help but wonder if they’ve changed up the face too.

    Still…if I can find a good spot for it, I’d get it. This Early Bird stand’s taking up my main shelf’s display space as is!

    • HAVE YOU SMELT IT

      The mask ended up fitting ridiculously far off of her eyes. Why even bother making it play removable? It’s priced out of parent purchase range for 1 figure.

      • Brian B.

        I’d prefer having options as to how I’d display it is all.

      • Brian Beck

        “It’s priced out of parent purchase range for 1 figure”. I’m not going to disagree with you at all, but somebody buys those $350 electric ‘cars’ from Walmart.

        • Bombadgungan

          Yeah, I don’t see $60 as being out of parents’ range for a birthday or Christmas present. And you get more than just a figure for that. You get an awesome honkin’ big vehicle!

    • Brian Beck

      can you take a quick measurement of the stand for me please. I “think” I have a place for it.

      • Brian B.

        It’s about 2 feet wide and 4 inches long. I like the thing and I think the figures look good on it but I can’t imagine this speeder’s gonna be able to fit in the relatively same area on my display unless I clear stuff from the other lines I collect lol.

        • Brian Beck

          thank you, crap, it’s bigger then I thought (twss)

    • Bombadgungan

      To me it looks like only the goggles and scarf are removable. I think the rest of the headwrap is sculpted in place.

      Yes, display space is becoming an issue. Based on your avatar photo, I have to ask if you bought into the TBS 6″ First Order TIE.

      • Brian B.

        Ah well. Maybe I can swap the heads out or something. Let’s hope.

        And indeed I did buy the First Order TIE! Got it at an awesome discount at Gamestop after a few trade-ins and gift cards. Although my profile picture has nothing to do with it- I made my account a few weeks before the first Force Friday and I just zoomed in on a picture in the catalogue they released and figured “eh this will do” LOL.

        • Bombadgungan

          I did not get the First Order TIE Fighter due to size and lack of display space. But this Rey Speeder reveal has got me thinking…
          How awesome would it have been/would it be if Hasbro were to do a classic A New Hope TIE Fighter in this scale? I think that would fly off shelves!

          • Brian B.

            There was one, incredibly fleeting moment where I saw an opportunity to buy another one for cheap and thought of painting it in the classic colors myself…but even that’s a LOT.

            And where would I have put the thing?

  • El_tito

    Can’t wait, looks amazing.

  • SID

    THANK THE MAKER! FINALLY A PRODUCT WORTH BUYING. THANK YOUR (FOR ONCE) HASBRO.

  • Fiery Little One

    I’ll keep an eye on this one.

  • General Hux

    Even though I don’t collect anything TBS6 related I may buy this, looks top notch.

    • Bombadgungan

      A good place to start. 😉

  • Brian Beck

    I wonder if the ‘regular’ Rey fits on it. I’d like to pose her with her saber, loping off the head of a trooper Genghis Kahn style.

  • Rykrof_Enloe

    SOLD!

    • General Hux

      I wonder if the basic TBS6 Rey could head swap with this figure? The soft goods look amazing and so does the rest of the sculpting.

      • Brian Beck

        Oh, that’s a good question also.

      • Bombadgungan

        Whoa! I hadn’t even realized that this Rey had soft goods. Now that I’ve followed the link, I see/read that it is a 100% new sculpt. Dang it! That’s going to make this even harder for me to pass on.

  • Paulskywalker

    I know these are the publicity photos but it looks so awesome, as does Rey and her accessories.

  • Zachary Hering

    Amazing. I’ll buy.

  • Brian Beck

    ….and I’ll get it. I was hoping for a different 6″ vehicle though.

    • Danny

      not hate, we just feel it’s a bit late; like almost 2 years too late 🙂

      • Brian Beck

        Oh I know, it is mostly ‘off topic’ nerf BS, and agree about the lateness, but I see this as a good sign, in that when the Han Solo movie comes out I can get the missing Rogue One stuff I want 🙂

    • Paulskywalker

      I stopped going to JTA altogether. If it’s not 3 3/4 S/A they’ll find a reason to complain.

      • Please refrain from complaining about other sites here in the comments. Thank you.

        • Paulskywalker

          Sorry for speaking freely. But there is also a hint of irony about asking not complain about the site that is now ruined by complaining. It’s funny for years i saw stupid attempts at competition between websites now there is this unified were all ‘friends’ now so don’t dare use your freedom of speech to criticize….

          • General Hux

            Jayson isn’t hindering your freedom of speech…It’s not like you can just walk into someone’s house, start talking crap about them and then complain that you’re being censoring their freedom of speech when they force you out. You can still say whatever you want, but if a site owner doesn’t like what you say, it isn’t censorship.

          • Bombadgungan

            But he wasn’t talking crap about the homeowner, he was talking crap about their [edited] neighbor. 😉

          • General Hux

            Yes, but I was just using an example.

          • The purpose of these comment sections are to (freely) voice your opinions (positive or negative) about the subject of the post, not have them twist into a platform for people to criticize or complain about other sites/people, no matter who it is. I refuse to let our site/comment section/forums devolve into some echo chamber or off-topic party line with 100s of comments that, in totality, say nothing.

          • Hmm, I thought we worked things out. I guess not. 🙁

        • Brian Beck

          My bad. I always come here first for news and info. I was the first to comment here on it and went “there” to see, and 70+comments already, 95% neg :/ and 🙁 ….which is why I come here first.

        • You can still totally tell which site he is referring to haha. Buts thats okay. we love all SW sites quirks and all.
