Yup. First time Axe and Andor/B2EMO have been offered docsilence :)

But I know just what you mean. I wish they'd just put entire Waves up to pre order at THE SAME TIME. We already have had the opportunity to pre order everyone in the Axe Woves Wave, except Axe.

And Now, we have the chance to pre order everyone in the Andor figure Wave, except the final figure which will be a video game character (either Bastilla or Malak). I'd just love to be able to pre order and secure a Wave all at once.

Still, lots of cool stuff today, but I was hoping to see Bastilla, Malak, and Ki Adi Mundi renders or figures since they have all been announced.

They really struggled to feign enthusiasm for the ROTJ repacks, I get the feeling they dislike having to repack figures that came out a year ago. It was a year ago that endor box set right?

I love that we're finally getting Wicket in the Black Series & hate the price gouging.

That Mon Mothma is beautiful and why they need to ditch soft goods on a lot of figures.

We need some Queen Amidalas like yesterday.

We have almost every single Leia but only one Padme.

Y'know, the repacks are probably boring, but I remember first getting into SWBS late and seeing Han, R2, and a few other core characters only available for like, nearly 100 bucks on eBay. I think the repacks are really healthy for the line to keep new people buying, even as the rest of us are like "gimme more NEW STUFF!" I hope the repacks help keep the line going strong so we finally get those ancillary characters we're still waiting for. (Right now I'm hoping they do repacks of Season 1 Bad Batch for all the folks who got ganked waiting on those shorted preorders the vendors got saddled with.)

Thanks for confirming, Super Camel - nothing like trying to place a fast preorder while also scanning my previous purchases to make sure I haven't already bought them... Now I'm also trying to figure out the difference between the exclusive and the standard release Andor himself, like, is it the exact same figure? (Ordered both as a precaution, but that's one I won't feel guilty about canceling.)

It's as low as I could have hoped for.......I GUESS that's a positive? I saw a Jawa from one of the TV shows priced at $28 the other day, I was worried they were going there.

I have no real issue with the repacks, but them not offering as much new stuff alongside them is really disappointing.

Also, no speeder bike? Really? That and Slave Leia are two of my grails and while I get why Leia might not get released, no bike? I say again: really?

Where was all this clamoring for Slave Leia 7 years ago when she was warming the pegs so hard she made the news because some uptight parent only saw that inappropriate Leia in the aisle. https://www.themarysue.com/slave-outfit-leia-toy/

I think people want an update, not the original repacked. Or, if nothing else, at least new paint on the head and a new skirt that doesn't fray and look like shit.

Exact same Cassian figure, may be the only way to get B2-EMO though.

The hunter and crosshair reissues probably got cancelled so they could use the moulds for the season 2 repaints. The wait for season 1 might be a while, unless they do a box set or archive wave in a year.

Wicket and the Andor wave figures all look superb. Kind of a lackluster panel though. Pipeline stuff sounds promising but it's like we won't see anything until next summer. I was hoping for a RotJ Rebel soldier.

ROTJ Rebel Soldier was announced in a previous event as a Pipeline figure. It is going to be a deluxe release though.

I don't know why they didn't re-cap all of the previous Pipeline releases. I was reading some of the comments during the event and there was a lot of disappointment that a BOBF Black Krrsantan was not being made, but he too was revealed previously as a Pipeline release.

I'm sure it'll be coming eventually, but I'm surprised that they haven't announced a new Jabba set for the ROTJ anniversary. The focus seems to be on Endor for now, and that's cool, but I hope they don't forget about the first part of the movie too (3rd release of Skiff Lando not withstanding). I missed the first Jabba set, and it's going for yucky prices last I looked. I'm sure they'll throw something together like they did for the Wampa a few years back- a retro style card and maybe throw in Salacious or make it a box set with those 2 plus Bib. Not sure if they'd be brave enough to throw in the hookah thing anymore. My collection needs a big fat slug, darnit!
