Rumor Report: What’s Up with Snoke

Those that desire Hasbro’s return to playset had some new life breathed into them a couple weeks ago when we revealed the plans for a 3.75″ scale Force Link BB-8 / Star Destroyer Combo Playset. That life was sucked out again when we revealed that it included Supreme Leader Snoke as one of the pack-in figures.

The Supreme Leader is substantially taller than his accompanying Elite Guard by probably a head and a half and he sure is gold. Unknown at this time if he includes an accessory other than his throne in the playset. Both Snoke and the Elite Guard are Force Link compatible.

    Is there any update on Phasma for this next movie??? I haven’t seen her mentioned at all in any of the hype. We still get Hux but not a peep on Phasma…

    • She’s getting a Nerf rifle and it’s her only entry on the checklist so far.

      • Ryan M

        Pathetic. I hope she has a larger role in this next film or else what a waste of a good character design and actress.

  • Ryan M

    Overall 3.75″ basic snoke should not be included only in a $200 set. People will just swap the fig and return the rest OR bootlegs from china will be flooding eBay once they realize the popularity and demand for him. Also, the Black Series version should not be a Gamestop exclusive. Hasbro is crazy town.

    Jayson, is Snoke sculpted in 5POA normal standing figure form or sculpted to sit in his throne?

    • Ryan M

      The GameStop exclusive one with the throne is a 6″ scale black series figure (stands a little over 7″ tall I believe) Jayson???

      • lordtyrannusaurus

        Yes, that set will be fantastic. I was just wondering about the Snoke in the Star Destroyer playset, more specifically if it’s sculpted in a sitting or standing pose.

      • Probably closer to 8″ based on the 3.75″ scale

        • Ryan M

          Oh cool. I hope I can grab a Snoke on Force Friday

  • Ryan M

    Jayson do we know if the GameStop exclusive Snoke and 4 pack guard set will have a street date of Sept 1st?

    • Darth Parsley

      I just went to Gamestop and they said we can’t preorder it and it might be available 1 Sep 2017. I doubt it though they didn’t see anything in transit yet.

      • Ryan M

        Usually with most exclusives they a lot of times ship with UPS and heavily sticker tags with street date times. I doubt they would see this in transit yet.

    • FN-GZ

      They’re both listed on the force friday list, so there’s a big chance that they’ll be released on September 1st. I just hope they’ll have enough in stock when the time comes.

      • Ryan M

        Yeah I really want a Snoke. I already think he is a pretty cool character and I think he may be why Luke is hiding and not going out to save Han. So Snoke must be pretty powerful.

        • FN-GZ

          He’s such an enigmatic character. He’s quite intriguing. And the creepy design is a plus.

  • Superflukullus

    Also does the snoke figure have anyway of looking proper on the throne

    • Ryan M

      Im curious if he is just a larger figure and the throne is just a cardboard package (similar to Han and Greedo scene) or if it is an actual plastic throne.

  • Superflukullus

    So I’m guessing Hasbro is locking snoke in expensive items during FF.

      Your site is boring. Jayson can you make this guy not spam every thread on here.

      • TheLastTrooper

        chill bro i deleted the comment

  • Paulskywalker

    Does this mean you’ve seen the playset or just been told?

    • I’ve seen it in its closed form factor

      • Paulskywalker

        So no impressions? darn. Size even?

        • Stereotypical Evil Archer

          Looks like BB-8 all closed up, doesn’t it?

    • Ryan M

      This playset better be huge for the price tag it has been given. The AT-ACT had like a $275 price tag and it has been dropped to like $100 since it’s release. I would speculate this being a hot “black friday” doorbuster perhaps at 50% off or something if big box stores are smart.

  • Serpico Jones

    $200 is an absolutely ridiculous price for a play set.

  • SlothFromHoth

    I foresee a lot of returned play-sets with the wrong figure packed in there…

    • lordtyrannusaurus

      Lol, Walmart wouldn’t know if you returned it with NO figures in it. I have to say though that I thought this would’ve been the case with the AT-ACT as well, but I’ve seen no swapped figures. Maybe it’s just too much of a pain for sets this big.

  • Kicker2

    I heard he was about 7 feet tall since TFA.

  • RumSleg

    Sounds like Snoke is the equivalent of the black Imperial astromech that came with the AT-ACT. You have to shell out $300 MSRP to get him?

    • General Hux

      $199. Still outrageous.

  • General Hux

    So, it was rumored that he was coming in the 3.75″ TBS line, does that rumor no longer hold any truth or is he still coming?

    • He is not. The previous intrepretation of the code name was incorrect.

      • General Hux

        Good to know, I’m guessing this may be the case with Luke as well? Considering he wasn’t listed in the TBS wave too?

    • bmales01

      Then its smart (or really cruel) that Yazflow is making him exclusive to an expensive playset. It forces collectors to bite or steal the pack-in.

  • Rivesjunctionite

    Cool.
