    Farkin’ Tarkin!

    Do we know when the Lando/Hera/Qui-Gon wave is coming?

    • Paul B

      Hera is postponed I thought?

  • Bombadgungan

    So Hasbro decided olive green was the correct color for Tarkin’s uniform a few years ago with TVC, undoubtedly with final sign off by the licensor Lucasfilm, and now they have decided it is gray? So which is it?

    • HAVE YOU SMELT IT

      at least he’s not wearing a girl’s skirt now

  • Steve

    This likeness is off. Needs to be resculpted by the guy who fixed Leia and Vader.

  • Paulskywalker

    That is one awesome Peter Cushing sculpt. I hope it looks that good in person.

    • Paul B

      You know it won’t
      Paint apps will be bad
      Look at Princess Leia

      • Paulskywalker

        Yeah the first Leia was bad, but i saw the updated sculpt on TVC card the other week and looks a lot better. Sadly i’m not paying the £24.99 so waiting before i get it.

    • Steve

      Are you looking at the same sculpt the rest of us are seeing??????

      • Paulskywalker

        Yeah i am and that’s my opinion of it. Your speaking for everyone else, but all i see below is people saying they like it. I think it’s a pretty good likeness of Peter Cushing. The head is tilted down so will have to see what it looks like face on, but so far looks good.

  • CT-7567

    Is this an all-new figure? Does it use parts from Krennic or the upcoming Thrawn? Anyone think the ITO droid looks a bit too large?

  • Joe Eversole

    I love the Original Trilogy characters and this is Tarkin done right. Looks great!

    • Steve

      Are you looking at the same figure the rest of us are looking at???

  • Barney Dunn

    Spring 2018? That is like a lifetime from now in the world of Star Wars toys. A year from now we will be knee deep in Last Jedi Finn pegwarmers and we will be passing along leaked Target DPCI Numbers for the Han Solo spin-off early model YT-1300f ship (with pop-up Nerf launcher). Will anyone be thinking of Rogue One?

  • Dylan Smith

    Still laugh at the one guy who yelled “IT’S DOCTOR BALL!” when this figure was revealed.

  • Randy Simmons

    Enough of this, Hasbro… Release him (my variant of tarkin speaking to vader in the breifing room when force choking Motti)

  • Randy Simmons

    My only problem with the figure so far is that it has a grey tunic and pants. Clearly Tarking was wearing army olive green in ANH.

    • If you are so worried about accuracy, then this Tarkin should be wearing slippers instead of boots.

      • grugz

        lol

    • grugz

      you could get two and head swap with the death squad trooper for a kenner accurate one!

  • Zachary Hering

    This figure really looks amazing. We need more officers: Kallus, General Veers, a generic officer, Yularin (both ep 4 and cw) and of course Kilian with a young boba fett.

    • Brian B.

      It’s from carrying the burden of the emperor’s expectations for so long LOL

  • Jaken Wraith

    Alot is coming before him. We still have a ALOT of un-announced FIgures coming soon, this year. Not a single ep VIII Character has been shown. Of course all the Main Character’s from it (Rey,Finn,Poe,Kylo) but also prob a couple new Trooper’s, couple new Aliens, all mixed in with some of what was shown at Celebration. And to figure out the likely canidates of what “classic” Fig’s will be mixed in with all the ep VIII Character’s, go back to the survey. It still hold’s relevance with how long Hasbro’s development Phase is. And right now with the “Fans Choice” going on, some of the sites have eliminated some pick’s because they know they are already in production. An older Jedi Luke is one of them.

  • Steve

    Hasbro needs to hire the guy who made princess helga look more like princess leia. This does not look like tarkin / peter cushing at all.

  • Rob Redahl

    So be it. If there is one thing this hobby has taught me, it’s patience.

  • CSEddleman

    Sculp improvement…

  • But that’s a whole ‘nother year!

  • Zachary Hering

    Why so long? Gonna give him a blaster I hope?

    • Rob Redahl

      Nah he doesn’t need a blaster, he can take out his enemies with his acerbic wit and foul stench.
      The interrogation droid is an impressive accessory.

    • Paul

      The vintage collection version of him came with a blaster so there’s a precedent.

      • Zachary Hering

        My thoughts as well. It would also be great if we got a Mouse droid and an alternate young Tarkin head like in the clone wars

        • The most recent sculpt of the mouse droid was oversized for the 3 3/4 figures but is in perfect scale with the 6 inch figures.

    • Paul B

      Maybe resculpt the head to actually look like Peter Cushing?

      • Bombadgungan

        This is such an amazing head sculpt. I’m not sure what else you’d want.

        • Paul B

          I don’t think it looks like him at all

          • Bombadgungan

            *shakes his head in utter disbelief* WHAAAAAAT???
            I must be due for my first pair of reading glasses, because what I see is one of Hasbro’s most accurate portraits to date.

          • Rob Redahl

            In that picture the figure’s head is canted downwards. At first glance this gives the illusion that the face is squat and sort of scrunchy.
            I think this sculpt is amazing!
            It will be poor paint jobs, likely, that mar the portrait for this figure at retail.

        • Paul B

          I honestly think that the TVC 3.75″ inch figure looks better .
