What did I just buy here?
« on: March 18, 2017, 09:28:52 PM »

I found these things for $8.99.  6" with what looks like 2 points of articulation (at the shoulders).  Like mini versions of 12" Figs.  Are there any others of these?  The painting is atrocious on Han (on like all 6 of the ones there).  Maul actually looks OK.

I don't know if there's an official name, but it's basically a 6" budget or 'value' line.

Canadian Tire had them at Christmas and Superstores have them now, too.

A selection of them has been available in the States for awhile. (Here are Adam Pawlus' reviews of "wave 2?" - http://figureoftheday.blogspot.ca/search/label/Value%206-Inch%20Action%20Figures) The older releases were in an open box (similar to the Marvel ones you my have seen around town)*.

*Added:  Checked out the reviews in a little more detail.  Apparently wave 1 is the window box like here, but the wave 2 US release is open box.  I can't find wave 1, but suspect it may have been Ren, Finn, the regular trooper and Rey, but that's just a guess and a vague recollection of reading about Finn and Ren being found.


Here's a list of the ones I know of;

Prequels: Darth Maul

OT: Jedi Luke, ANH Han, Vader

TFA: Kylor Ren, Rey, Finn, Stormtrooper, Snowtrooper

Rebels: Kanan Jarrus

I got the Kannan Jarus cause I wanted the blaster for my Jedi Luke.  Sold the rest of him off on Ebay to make back some of the money.
