Hasbro Celebrate the Saga Figure Multipacks
« on: November 07, 2020, 09:03:43 AM »

A head's up for 3.75" collectors. With all the other Vintage 3.75" items being released it could be easy to overlook the Celebrate the Saga Multipacks that are now on shelves and online. There are 8 different packs.

If you get a chance, check them out in person before you write them off, the paint apps are the same level of quality as any current photoreal vintage figure, so even if you don't like the packaging, the figures themselves look great. See them in person if you can because all photos I've seen online don't do the actual figures themselves justice.

These figure don't have super articulation right ?  They are just 5 point ?

Yes they are 5 POA. Retro articulation but state of the art paint apps.

I have still never seen any of these in person, but would like to get a few of the figures like Rey and Leia. I already have most of the figures from these sets, so I don’t need them all. Wish there were an easy way to get singles from these.

The only set I bought was the Bounty Hunters set which includes Hondo's Droid R5-P8, ....which is basically a Build a Droid sculpt with 8 points of articulation. This Droid is equivalent to a Vintage Collection figure.   I kept the Droid and tossed the 5POAs bounty hunters.

I'm tempted to order the resistance set from amazon.com because Amazon.ca is $88.68 from a third party seller.
It works out to be $52.05 from amazon.com, really on the fence about it, hoping to get it $7 cheaper over here.

Almost tempted to do the same, even brought the pack at the cash register, then dropped it ater I reasonned mysel I will not pay 40$ for a small droid that wasn't even on my wish list before I saw the pack on Fans' First Friday a while back. I decided I'll better spend that money on XMas gifts for my kids. :)

66Jedikiller66 that's what I would do, the other options would be check for uk online sellers or wait 6 months and hope places like Entertainment Earth and bigbadtoystore get a crack at them after the exclusive window expires. I would just do the Amazon.com option, take a minor hit, and be done with it.

It's an Amazon exclusive in North America so I wouldn't expect it to pop up at other North American retailers for awhile.

I know these sets are all made from previously existing tooling, but it seems like a missed opportunity that they didn’t make a set of new figures like these from the Mandalorian. Being that it’s the most popular segment of Star Wars right now, and with Christmas coming up, it seems like it would have been a hot seller. Meanwhile, the Wal-Marts closest to me have no figures from the Mandalorian at all.

They are really nice, I have checked them out this evening at ToysRus. Not my cup of tea, but they are very nice... Reminds me of the Evolution set they did a while ago.
