  • Raymond van Putten

    Ugh more 5POA figures. I am going to boycot them. Give us super articulated figures again like we had before. It’s 2017, 3.75″ figures with 5POA just doesn’t cut it anymore.

  • Bombadgungan

    Ugh! That Dewback looks like something from Jedi Force/Galactic Heroes. What a disappointment! I guess I was expecting something a bit more Sideshow-esque.

  • Stereotypical Evil Archer

    Hovertank with treads or Treadtank that doesn’t hover?

  • Brian Beck

    I’m going to be on that tank like white on rice !!!

  • Faust

    No Nerf on the Tank? They expect $80 for a toy without a Nerf gun!? Just kidding, I’m loving the new vehicle.
    I think I’m seeing an upper thigh swivel joint on Dr Aphra and I hope the other new figures have this joint as well. I’d like Jyn and Cassian are going to include the extra parts to build their blaster pistols into rifles, and the brighter colors on them remind me of the Comic Book 2-Packs we used to get.
    I’m in for the whole series, even though I have em all already except for the three new ones.

    • 80sRobot

      Jyn and Cassian (and the Deathtrooper) are the Black Series 3.75″ that were exclusive to Walmart, re-released under the vintage label. (Walmart was clearing out the Jyn and Cassian for less than $6 just a few months ago.) I’m not criticizing this, as I like these figures and feel they should be re-released and kept in circulation.

      • Faust

        Yeah, I know they’re from the WMBS, and I’m glad they are being re-released as well. There’s only 3 coming out that I don’t have yet (Aphra, Tank Driver, Hoth Soldier- got all the rest already).
        It was really hard for me to find Cassian and Shore Trooper, and I got lucky because I arrived at WM as soon as a case was opened. I know plenty of others never found them at all and that really sucks, they’re fantastic figures.

  • Blaine Hoover

    why’s dr. aphra marked as being “ledgends”? she’s completely cannon.

    • Faust

      I’m wondering if “Legends” will be their new name for the Expanded Universe.

      • Blaine Hoover

        it already is though. anything non cannon has been branded “legends” since late 2015. aphra is cannon, so it doesn’t make any sense to have her mark her as being art of the legends continuity.

        • Brian Beck

          Maybe a fast mock up ? All the other ones are attached to movies, and she is not. I agree she’s not ‘legends’, maybe just simply “star wars” or “…as scene in the comics..” 🙂

          • Blaine Hoover

            that certainly makes sense.

  • Rivesjunctionite

    The lack of shore trooper TVC repack really irritates me.

    • Brian Beck

      Me too.

      • Faust

        Me three. The Tank Driver is a repaint with a new head (I think), but Shore Trooper still needs to be on store shelves again.

        • Bombadgungan

          Me four! I love these guys! They have such a Biker Scout vibe to them, one of my favorites from the OT. I can imagine a Shoretrooper TVC card would look wicked.

    • CT-7567

      I’m sure they’ll get to it. I expect to see every Walmart figure repacked in TVC. I REALLY wish they’d stay awake from Starkiller Base Han and TFA Leia from TBS. They’re rotting on pegs right now for $5.

    • Brian Beck

      JTA now has the youtube interview up and this question is at the 5min mark. their answer makes sense and no sense at the same time.

  • 80sRobot

    With the exception of the logo, this fan-made Black Series 3.75″ Jyn on a retro card nailed it:

  • Josuethefanboy_7

    When are the 5POA figures being released? I’d love me a Boba Fett and Han Solo figures they look great.

    • Tom P.

      Boba and Han will come out Force Friday most likely, along with the rest of the 5POA figures.

      • Josuethefanboy_7

        Cool thanks

  • SID

    Gotta say really dig the clean super detailed BOBA FETT 5POA to me these types are perfect for display with my Kenner stuff. But that back-pack-weapon is a whole BAW vomit fest.

    • Josuethefanboy_7

      Yeah I’d buy it too for some reason I think is a tease for TLJ since both Han and Boba have their ESB suits and ESB influenced some of TLJ story.

  • Fiery Little One

    A good chunk of the 6″ figures will probably be on my list.

    • SID

      Chunk is the perfect word considering the size/weight vs cost on that line.

      • Fiery Little One

        Not what I meant, but okay. heh.

  • SID

    Wow these 6″ are really great. Just when I think I can be done with this line they plan more… better looking sculpts/paint for these figures. That General Leia and Maz (soo glad they gave her the trunk!) these are a MUST.

  • Mother_Talzin

    Seems like a lot of rehashes and repacks (3.75 lines) for this presentation. The only truly exciting piece for me is the Rathtar. The Emperor figure looks good, but I wish they would have packed him with Sim Aloo.

    • SID

      Wow that’s a great point.

    • Rivesjunctionite

      But the rathtar is pretty freaking amazing! Also the hovertank is a big highlight for me.

  • The pic behind the Hover tank trooper is silly. I hope they dont use that one for the cardback.

  • Cheeseman James

    I feel bad for anybody buying the hover tank. it can only hit a terrace

  • Zarco Rey

    Probe Droid and Vader…er..why not the not so common 5 POA Snowtrooper?

    • Its the Rogue one Vader right? Im suddenly glad I skipped that one.

      • Firestick User

        When I first saw the RO Vader I said “meh” but months later I picked one up and he’s not bad.

        • CT-7567

          Agreed. I have the incredible VC93 Vader, but I still appreciate the RO figure. It’s import me to get figures released when the movie comes out.

      • CT-7567

        It looks like a repaintretool. The RO Vader has the ANH costume differences.

        • Youre right. no cloth over the armor…even more of a reason to pick up the RO vader!

    • SID

      Exactly. I skipped that entire Rebels run cuz I refused to pay the prices. $8-$9 where I was. No WAY was I going to pay that for 5POA and never will (unless its Kenner vintage but that’s an entirely different scenario lol)

  • Julio Arellano

    What is new about the sandtrooper?

    • Aerik

      It looked like it had the orange pauldron like the original Sandtrooper.

      I’m guessing they have to redo the leg articulation so it can seat properly on the Dewback. See the Scout Trooper from the Speeder Bike release for an example of crazy lateral leg articulation for vehicle mounts.

      Also, it looked like it had a dewback prod (that long lance-like pole).

      • Julio Arellano

        Thank you so much for replying. I guess I’ll go and get another job now…..lol #Walletcrying

        • SID

          Yeah if its $60 for the new landspeeders I don’t even want to know how much they are going to rake from us for the dewback since its super articulated.

    • Zarco Rey

      It’s require they make a new sandtrooper in at least one scale every year.

  • Tom P.

    I’m still hoping for a 3.75″ General Leia on FF. Nice to see Hoth Leia. Never bought her in the old days.

  • Paulskywalker

    Finally a 6 inch rebel trooper! Wow was not expecting the feedback or Rex; brilliant. All the 6 inch are. Hope the dewbacks legs look better in a good pose. Good to see Maz has tbe chest. Then TVC so glad to see RO and TFL figures reissued and hope they come here as I only have two that were sent to me. And a TVC vehicle and the brill assault tank at that. That was out of the left field! Not a hovertank by the lol. Amazing reveals so far. The fact they said TBS is their bread and butter now is very telling of the 5 POA line. Hopefully this time next year TBS and TVC will be the only way forward. :o)

    • I think the back leg on the dewback has been put on backwards…

      • Paulskywalker

        Yeah I see what you mean, at the hips. Hopefully one will be on display to see better.

      • Paulskywalker

        I’ve just seen the images of it in the diorama, you were right. Legs are correct in it and look so much better. Liking the articulation in the claws too.

  • General Hux

    Hasbro, you re-release Jyn, Cassian, and the Death Trooper but NOT the Shoretrooper? C’mon, that needs to be re-released desperately.

    • Maybe for the 50th anniversary?

    • 80sRobot

      I’m glad they are re-releasing the Black Series 3.75″ Rogue One characters that were Walmart exclusive — nothing wrong with these sculpts at all. But, yeah, why not the Shoretrooper? That thing is rare and still in demand. I assume they are replacing it with what is essentially a Black Series 3.75″ version of the Hovertank Driver.

  • Littlegreenwiseguy

    Nice list. I wonder what will hit retail shelves by 2019.

    • Cheeseman James

      better chance of wave 4 from rogue one to come out in 2019

    • SID

      Easy… Just pick the ones you like/want. Then pray you find them at a discount chain.

      • 80sRobot

        Hello, ebay! (overpaying)

    • Doctor Hans Reinhardt

      3.75″ TFA Luke…. maybe?
