Back in October, we posted details for 3 new Force Link figures coming to the Star Wars Universe line: Emperor Palpatine, C’ai Threnalli, and the First Order Flametrooper. Amazon has updated with images and links for these three figures. Bookmark the above links to check the availability sometime in early 2018.
We have another decoded Target DPCI to share today and it was the last one on our original list (posted here). The others were revealed here yesterday. This item is a “Star Wars Galaxy” Multipack that includes one figure from each of the serialized episodes (I-VIII). There are probably some good ol’ evergreen characters that will probably be included in here like Vader and Luke, but who do you think they chose to represent The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi?
The DPCI is 087-06-8398, (which is now active on Brickseek) retail price is $39.99 and has an estimated October 1 release date.
Leave a comment on whom you’d like to see. And yes, they are all basic (5 POA) figures.
Nine basic figures from The Last Jedi have leaked on Instagram. We will refrain from posting the direct link since this leak doesn’t come from a retailer. What we will state are the names of the figures. Click through for the list
Update: 2 more figures added plus the Resistance Ski Speeder
Update 2: Card back packaging has revealed a closer look at the Force Link bracelet and the TIE Silencer
If you missed our breakdown of the first waves of 3.75″ basic figures on the First Order Transmissions show, click on through for the coded list.
Remember how things were broken down for The Force Awakens 3.75″ basic figures? Figures and vehicles were grouped into 4 categories: “Forest”, “Snow”, “Desert” and “Space”. For The Last Jedi, the Star Wars Universe (SWU) is broken down into two categories, “Orange” and “Teal”. These color designation may have some alternate definition later on, but for now this is how they are being grouped.
More to come….
Twitter follower darthdj666 reports scoring his Thrawn wave this morning at Target in Atlanta, GA.
Twitter follower Mike Jett reports finding the HTF Thrawn wave of Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One figures at Target in Louisville, KY.
Rebelscum has posted a rumor regarding possible features/interactivity built into the new Hasbro figures for The Last Jedi. If you’re old enough to remember CommTech chips, the “Force Link Bracelet” sounds a bit familiar. Head on over to Rebelscum for the details.
UPDATE: After some independent research, it looks like the vehicles will also be compatible with this “Force Link” technology.
PROS: A marked improvement over the “Home Entertainment” set released for The Force Awakens, this set features 3 new figures with excellent sculpting and paint. Edrio and Saw are brand new for this set and are the most detailed of the 4 figures. Saw Gerrera is the highlight though featuring the most complex sculpt and a great likeness to Forest Whitaker. There are no superfluous pack-in weapons to clutter the set.
CONS: The benefits far outweigh the negatives for this set as repacking Jyn seems like an overcompensation to correct the “Where’s Rey” issues from 2015. It’s also unfortunate that this is the only to get Saw Gerrera and Edrio Two Tubes, but obviously better than not getting them at all.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.
