Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Do you think Hasbro will ever make a new X-Wing toy (to scale with the figures, of course)? How many more years can they milk that old mold?


Ermm... The large Force FX sculpt is about as close to scale as we're likely to get and it's not that far off. I'm not at home to measure but I think it comes in around 1:20 maybe? In any case it's much bigger than the original vintage mold.

You are correct good sir. She is indeed from the Old Republic. You see her in action in the sacking of the Jedi Temple video. Though I'm not sure if there is any other appearance from her in game yet.

And personally if the Force Unleashed figures weren't TRU exclusives all the time except the first games initial wave I'd be snatching them up left and right. I'm still waiting for Bastilla and Nom Anor already. But if there is a wave of TOR figures they will be mine!

She is the Bounty Hunter in the awesome Star Wars: The Old Republic cinematic where the Sith attack the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. You should definitely check it out.

I've seen the Lego Talon and Fury kits, and I see here Shae Vizla is getting a figure (Natch), so can't wait to see what we get next. Heck, I'll even take some SWTF figures of some of this icon-fire.gif

In light of the spectacular new original trilogy vehicles that have come out in the last few years, I think the X-Wing is in for an overhaul.

They overhauled it a bit for the new TRU set with Vader's TIE. It's got a new cockpit and a new front end with a proton torpedo launcher and some storage spaces. I doubt they're going to do much more retooling in the near future, since the F/X version is generally considered to be a pretty great mold.

Far as I can know, she's in the Sith intro video, and getting a Gentle Giant bust, and now a action figure (which looks very cool), but is she actually in the game at all? I can't find any info on her being in it. icon-depth.gif

Well, anything is possible. They are releasing three, three-packs for the 3d Phantom Menace toyline but they are all old repaints, nothing new though and no announcements for anything further. The cynical part of me just knows they are using this to "test the waters" and when no one buys three packs of ships they've already had for years Hasbro will use it as proof the Titanium line won't work.

Of course, even if they do decide to resurrect it I imagine it would be rereleases for a while before they invested in anything new.

Yakface.com is reporting this will likely be a Target Exclusive, DPCI is 087-06-0846 and a price of 129.99. Well, at least we know it will go on sale - if this was a TRU exclusive it would have cost thirty dollars more AND been on shelves for five years.

How is it a Target exclusive? It's in their computer, so what, they had the BMF in the system before it was revealed as well. I find it highly improbable that Hasbro would invest SO MUCH into a big vehicle, tied to the biggest media push of the brand's year, and limit it to ONE store.

In other news, Vintage is dead in my area. Stupid Walmart got a "display set" of wave 5 (?) to tie in with the BluRay release....and we still have PILES of them. As in, more Vintage than the other two segments (Clone Wars and Movie Legends) COMBINED. Probably won't see a new assortment until next Christmas, at best.

Yeah - you're probably right. I think it was actually somewhere else that was trying to say it was a "store exclusive" and then the Target info popped up. I'd be surprised too if they limited the market and I doubt Target would want to gamble on something that big.

Well, "currently". I saw her twice a couple of months ago, which was handy because the first one had a pretty messed-up face.

I was hoping there'd be a big full-shelves launch with today's Episode I-3D street date, but apart from TRU's overprice-a-palooza and the same small handful of opened-early stuff that Walmart had last week, nobody seems to have anything new today. I'm moping at you, Target!
