I’m curious if on the OT figures of ANH, ESB, and ROTJ will all go together in the artwork.

I don't personally want them to have digital printed faces b/c then Zeb wouldn't match the older figs.
Now if they did another set of the full crew from the end of Rebels all with digital printing, I might be tempted. As it is, I think this is a good compromise for those that missed the earlier runs without gouging those that have been around from the start.

Eh, I DID see pretty much everyone at retail at one point or another, and I don't recall the paint apps being all that terrible. They weren't "digital prints", but they were still an improvement over some of the early figures.
I'm game, I never committed because I wasn't sure Hasbro would ever finish the crew. Might as well get them all at once! Also, I dig the new packaging. Nice to see some people changed jobs so we can move away from that minimalist crap that permeated the collector stuff the last few years. Also, HA HA, to all the collectors who can no longer keep their numbering going

It's a brilliant addition to the packaging, though. Like the only one that I would normally spring for is Beskar Mando, but because the Stormtrooper's box fits in with the packaging mural, I'd be hard pressed to pass on it in the store just to complete the stoopid picture.
And I typically throw out the boxes, too, btw...

You all know that BMF reissue rumored about? Turns out it was for Galaxy's Edge! Available August 30th (because preorders sold out), The Smuggler's Run Millennium Falcon will be available from Disney and Target at a whopping $400. But it's not just a reissue, it features Chewbacca, a bunch of Porgs, and an exclusive Honda Ohnaka figure.

And both radar dishes. Wow. Well hmmm. $500 got you the sail barge - a completely new, low-volume, 4' long toy. The BMF has had two mass-market releases so far. Yeah, this appears to have additional paint apps, but the additional figs don't add that much in the grand scheme - Chewie is on his what? fourth release of that particular sculpt? I guess they looked at recent Ebay sales and figured $200 under the going rate was a good deal.
I'm pretty sure I would've snagged one at $300 since mine has gotten so yellowed, but $400 puts it a bit high for me. Ah well - I don't have to decide for a bit.

I want one but I just can't drop $400 for any toy.
-ZacWilliam, it's just too much to me. $200 is my upper limit and that's for really really rare things..
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

I mean, if nothing else, you could probably flip Hondo for anywhere between $50-75 if you really wanted a means of recouping your cost.
Yeah... it's tempting but I do want Hondo. He's supposed to be released carded in an upcoming wave so I might be able to take advantage of the impatient, sell him and pick him up again later, but if he didn't show up later I'd be bummed.
