It’s been a mere six years since I last posted. Still a big Star Wars fan just cut back on collecting. Not enough display room, higher prices, and overall lower quality pushed me out. I am absolutely stoked about Solo though. This movie is made for me.
I don’t collect anymore but I have two nephews ages 6 and 8. I got the collecting bug for this film so I thought I would buy them the Solo assortment to satisfy the itch. Hit a few Walmart’s and Targets. To my dismay you can’t purchase a basic single carded Han or Lando.
-You can’t buy a basic carded Han Solo for a movie called Solo.
-You can’t buy a basic carded Lando played by arguably the highest trending entertainer in the game right now.
Wow. I know it’s tired to crap on Hasbro. So I won’t. But damn! There are these entire demographic(s) of Donald Glover fans who would have dropped 8 bucks for a Lando figure. Just to have it. People who have never purchased a Star Wars collectible in their life. Donald Glover is that popular right now. That two pack doesn’t fit their need though.
I’m just really disappointed. I bought a Chewbacca and Range Trooper for each of them. Passed on the Mimban Trooper. I’d would have purchased Qi’ra if there was a Han or Lando to group with her.
