Sometimes JTA does feel like a place to kiss hasbros ass over and over. other times its not so bad. they were sent a thank you type of document in a frame for promoting Jabbas Sail barge as much they did. i dont necassarily think ''the owner'' lol, is that bad. Sometimes i think they create ''news'' just to get comments etc etc so you do have a point..ive called them out on that btw! a couple times or so that i can think of ;)  a lot of the comments on there are people with nothing better to do and some that forgot to take there meds. whatever though, i dont really care either cause its not worth it.

I've also called them out for the same type of reasons. And they hate me. Paul hates me. It shows. Whenever I post something, he enters and slams me.  :tongue0024:

And I won't begin to talk about people commenting. I think some really really need to reconnect with reality. Star Wars is just movies. Made for fun. Some people tend to forget about that...  :shakehead:

  lol. ya, sometimes Paul makes it seem like something doesnt bother him when you can tell it clearly does. that makes me laugh :)

  ya, i wont name names. most i forget anyway cause it changes but there is one person in particular that is one of the worse for stirring the pot and being an all around pain in the butt yet people flock to said person for other reasons that are quite hilarous imo.

 ya, exactly, they are just movies. i see people ripping apart plot lines and looking waaay too much into them. its no wonder you cant enjoy anything if you think that hard about it. i know some of whats happened is obvious but i dont mean that..u know what i mean. its just like that theory that Jar Jar Binks is a sith. ever heard that mentioned ? someone in EBgames said that to me once and i told him whoever told you that did/does too much acid! :D

All’s been quiet on the western front  for several days - no postings from any Snowtroopers.
It looks like the next five figures from the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back are now on the horizon.  Coming soon I hope!

Yep.  It's been a very boring month or so as a collector, that's for sure.

I even stopped in on a Target and a Walmart when I was in Buffalo over the weekend... absolutely nothing new and, in fact, less selection than what we have here.  No carbonized Mandalorians.  No carbonized Jet Troopers.  No Spirit Yoda figures. 

The only thing I saw in person that I've yet to see here was one of those dumb gold-painted two packs (Finn and Poe in this case).  Needless to say, it remained on the shelf.

Snore.

I missed the vote. My list of "needs" from ESB would be prioritized as follows:

21B & FX7 (in a dream world they'd release a deluxe set with these 2, a scale bacta tank & diaper Luke to go with them but I digress)

Leia Bespin Gown

Hoth Rebel Soldier

Lobot - Bespin Guard(s) - Twin Pod Cloud Car Pilot - Ugnaught(s) would all be of interest but I'd prioritize the last few unmade Hoth figures for sure.

I think if all of that got done we'd have 30/30 original ESB figures remade wouldn't we? Along with a couple of nice bonuses like Bespin Escape Leia, Veers & Piett (which I consider to be the proper remakes of ATAT Commander & Imperial Officer).

So this is turning out to be a much bigger event than the 40th of ANH was, or I'm seeing it wrong.

The vintage line for ESB consisted of 30 figures plus vehicles & playsets. I'm going to try & keep track of everything that's being produced JUST for the anniversary in the 6" scale - please help me out.  :party0007:

Fett will be in wave 3 of the 40th figures.
There is an ESB Vader coming out. Also, Bespin Luke has a new head.

Thank you! I'll add the detail about Luke's head. I guess Bespin Han & Hoth Leia were recent enough to not need the touch up?

Yeah, those ones are just repack. I think you forgot Yoda or I'm just blind.

Seeing the wave 3 list at Yakface has me thinking I'll skip the Luke &  Yoda 2 pack to wait for the single carded release of Luke on Dagobah. Also interested to see what they come up with for Vader & Chewie figures - will these be re-releases or something new?

https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2020/05/05/6-tbs-tesb-40th-anniversary-wave-3-figures-listed-in-walmart-app/

My personal shopping list:

Probe Droid (pre-ordered with EB)
Frozen Han (pre-ordered with amazon)
Hoth Rebel Trooper (ordered via Dorkside but I will grab at least one more if I see them at retail)
Luke Snowspeeder (ordered via Dorkside)

Luke Bespin (for the new head sculpt)
Luke Dagobah
R2D2 Dagobah (pre-ordered through amazon.ca)
Leia Hoth
ATAT Driver

TIE Pilot (pre-ordered through amazon.ca)
Snowtrooper
Vader (pre-ordered at ebgames)
Han Bespin?
Yoda?
Lando?
Chewbacca?

Snowspeeder with Dak.... potentially. I have no space for it but I have no ability to NOT buy it, either. We will see what happens.

I am also curious about chewie though i will likely pass. I hve what i consider a definitive chewie in this scale. Hence why i passed on the 3PO 2 pack. I believe Vader is an ESB Vader so some of he outfit detailing will be different from the ANH one we got. But I'm curious to see if they'll do something different with the card photo. He will probably be different enough for me to get since I'm a Vader fan.

Funny my shopping list is very similar to yours jj. Curious to see the dagobah Luke individually.

I am a sucker for anything hoth so was tempted to get all the hoth figures to keep carded. But it's just too much for me at this point so am sticking to openers in the black series. So I am basically getting anything new for the OT.

Probably most looking forward to the hoth rebel trooper. He looks fantastic from pics online and I may even want two since he has a second face and there seems to be enough gear (scarf, goggles) to vary two figures enough to make them feel like two separate figures.
And I probably shouldn't get the snowspeeder... but it's hoth. And it's a snowspeeder. Nuff said.
