Wampa Cave / Re: Price increase on The Black Series at Walmart
« on: January 19, 2020, 01:06:21 PM »
Black Series isn't the only line to have increased in price. Galaxy of Adventures 5" are now $14.97 at Walmart. While some pegs still show $12.97, there are newly priced pegs right next to them, and the old figures are scanning at the new price. Next up, TVC most likely.

Actually I think it's very obvious how he got it... the purge that is referred to in this episode, "The Night of 1000 Tears" clearly meant that the Mandalorian people were virtually wiped out by the Empire.

Moff Gideon likely took the Darksaber off of Bo Katan's corpse.

Note: I still think it was Boba Fett in that Tatooine episode, not Gideon because these last 2 episodes never allude to Moff Gideon tracking Mando at all from there).

Lightbulb moment: Moff Gideon hires Boba Fett to hunt down Din Djarin and Baby Yoda - because some times it takes a Mandalorian to catch another Mandalorian.  The eventual series finale concludes with an epic showdown between Din and Fett... the winner gets to change Baby Yoda's diapers.

Interesting theories.

Good ending to season 1. Loved the ending but I need to refresh my knowledge ofcyfe item the character was holding!

WARNING:  spoilers for the season finale of Mandalorian follows....  read no further if you haven't watched it yet!

JJ, if you mean the weapon at the end, Moff Gideon was holding the Darksaber... as last seen in the Clone Wars cartoon being wielded by Pre Vizsla and I think then won by Darth Maul when he lost the duel.  Excellent to see that in live action at last.

This was really just another amazing episode. There were a lot of fun things in just this episode but the things that stood out to me:

1) Moff Gideon, of course... SW needs great villains and he may be the best SW villain to come along in a long time. He has the charisma of Count Dooku, he flies a mean Tie Fighter, and knows where to shoot (eWeb power pack).  Oh and he owns a Darksaber.

2) IG-11 playing Terminator to Baby Yoda's John Connor.  I doubt that it was a homage to T2, but still worth noting that the T-800 also sank himself into molten fire at the end of Judgement Day before he died...

3) The use of the Incinerator Stormtrooper from The Force Unleashed!  I always thought it was a silly design but hey he looked fantastic in this episode. Now Hasbro has an excuse to re-release the figure a second time (hopefully they use the more updated Stormtrooper sculpt and toss in a better flamethrower pack).

4) Baby Yoda stopping the barrage of flame... nuff said.

5) Learning Mando's real name (even though Pedro Pascal accidentally spilled the beans earlier) and seeing his face at last.  And he's now a clan of 2, lol.

6) Mando going off in search of either Yoda's species OR some Jedi in order to hand over the baby. Now this would be a great way to have him meet up with Luke's fledgling Jedi Order or Luke himself (just get Sebastian Stan to play a younger post RotJ-Luke... no seriously) or even Ahsoka, until she tells him that she's not a real Jedi and to take the baby somewhere else.

It's a shame Cara Dune won't be part of season 2. I really had hoped both she and IG-11 would continue on alongside Mando for the rest of the series...

It will be interesting to see how he got the Darksaber as Bo Katan was last seen wielding it in Rebels Season 4 as the new leader of Mandalore.

So does anyone know what's going on with Disney+? It's supposed to go live Nov 12 and yet in Canada you can't even sign up for it yet. It's just got the coming soon and keep me informed page.

The Americans were able to at least sign up weeks ago.

Seems odd they aren't at least letting Canadians sign up. Or am I missing something?

The Vintage Collection (TVC) / Re: TVC - Jabba's Palace Diorama

Old Man Ben - I think I saw on Rebel Scum - someone had created their own floor etc. to go with the set. So I think it must be a shared opinion by some.  I am hoping to get a couple of sets - but of course - they sort of got you because of the (2) Vintage figures in the box.

Cardboard Galaxy on Facebook created their own Floor and backdrops for the side walls.

She was also in the Rebels cartoon.

That was actually Seventh Sister. This is an all new character.

 :fett:

Ahhh, yes. You got me on that one. Pretty much the same character in the end.

From what I've seen online, they all look similar in the comics. I only watched Rebels and I haven't read the Vader comics.

Rebelscum has posted pictures of the new 6 figures that we should see on Oct 4 Force Friday.  Does anyone know which of these are from The Rise of Skywalker?  I know the Mandalorian is from a different series but what about the Second Sister Inquisitor?  Where is she from?  I am not up on all these characters.

She and the new Jedi are from the upcoming video game: "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order".

I think they switched the date? Could have sworn it was today...unless I am smoking the really good stuff : )

The date is still in September. For some reason they put the pages up early.
