Great job man! The armorer was already a nice figure, but the updated hip articulation is a huge improvment for sure!

I got my 2 Figuring D'an figures on the mail today and I haven't opened one yet, but I really like it. There's a multipack coming out of this guy, right? Has there been any information about it?

I have my fingers crossed that there is a set forthcoming. But no details as yet.

The Hasbro team gave some hints about it, but nothing official yet.

How many figures are we expecting from a multipack of Modal Nodes? The band count seems to be fluid.

And more importantly, will it be timed to coincide with a Wuher's Cantina Playset?

The Dark Times Vader is definitely my favorite Vader figure, regardless of scale. Wired cape from Harker customs and a “force push hand” from a Boss Fight Zorro figure put this over the top Image

I picked up Anakin from the latest wave after noticing his ankles were tilted in the package. I thought I owned this figure, but couldn't remember any figures from that time period with ankle rockers. Since I was too lazy to dig through my bins, I went to rebelscum"s photo galleries and he in fact was released about nine years ago with rockers.

I'm pretty sure that Anakin was the very first 3.75" Star Wars figure to get rocker ankles.

Just got my Vader today and wow, he's amazing! Not only is he the best 3.75 figure in my collection, he probably is the best Vader I own, period. The range he has on those joints is incredible, and I love how fluid, realistic and natural he poses.

Mine did come with a few QC issues though, the lip of the back of his neck got stuck in the joint and was bent. Fortunately you can't really tell. Also his lightsaber had some white marks on it, and I can't take them out. Oh well.

The Rogue One Stormtrooper was the first 3 3/4” figure that I felt that feeling with. They finally looked like how Stormtroopers are supposed to look. Then again with the RotJ Boba Fett. And now Vader. They’re finally nailing some of these icons after decades of trying.

And the human characters are getting so good as well. For all the hate Reva gets, her figure is fantastic in terms of likeness. The rehash figures are starting to look so bad because the all new figures are so well done now.

I don't buy anything that wasn't newly sculpted from the ground up after the line relaunched. The old figures stick out like a sore thumb. The proportions are just different, and the scale is too. Smaller and better.

You must not be buying a whole lot of Star Wars figures then haha.

Wasn't it said recently that a Starkiller, Vader's Apprentice, was planned down the pipeline? Or was that just speculation? Or was it The Black Series, I can't remember.
