Damn I see a lot of army buildings potential with this. Very cool

Let’s hope there’s a standard version for the Disney store.

Sadly both of my Disney stores in my area are closed rip…
Army building definitely is an exciting prospect. The $35 hook hurts it a bit though, and would draw me down 1 or 2 compared to what I would buy at $25. Maybe 3 is my limit at $35? Still not terrible, and I would live happily with a trio of troopers.

But a supposed 40% price increase with essentially the same amount of plastic as Fett and Maul who were jam packed with numerous big effect parts certainly raises flags, if this pans out as true.

Hopefully MSWord can see this thread being bumped and let us know what's up with this, whether it's the new go-to pricing for the line or if it's like MS comic Taskmaster where it arbitrarily has a higher price as an exclusive that is not the standard. Or if it's downright a mistake in reporting from instagram, which is also highly possible. But for all we know, this particular version might be exclusive to the Parks and we'll see another announcement coming quickly on its heels.

The trooper looks good. While I don't need more Star Wars scales to collect, I'll probably get one like I did with Boba Fett. Don't worry about the $35, Disney parks prices are always crazy.

That’s good, kinda sucks these parks jack up the prices on their stuff.
So hopefully it means these at normal Disney stores and on the site could be at the $25 range, maybe $30 but I prefer the other price.

I do not know if the parks price is what will be online. For the number of accessories, $30 is the usual standard, but shipping costs have been going up.

Is the item pictured considered a standard release, though? Not some sort of in-park exclusive variant package deal? It has the new packaging so I'm curious if you guys are moving away from that familiar Select bubble box with more properties.

It's not my first (or second) choice, but I'm just glad to see some life in this line.

That is the new SW packaging. We have been moving away from the Select style of packaging for many of our lines, including Invincible, LOTR, Avatar, Crow and others. We will re-release Boba in this packaging.

Dude... those images. Stormies in 1/10 are a long term dream of mine and these look absolutely stellar. I was at times this close to getting those Kotobukiya ArtFX statues, and eating the $60+ cost just to satisfy the urge, but DST has come through in a huge way. Can't wait for them to start popping up.

Thanks as always for giving the details.

I really only have two points of curiosity over posing: max range of hips in all directions (which already seem fine), and if the shoulder pads inhibit T-pose motion. But even with those questions in mind, I'm ready to go wild ordering 3 of them blind as soon as they pop up.

Nice!!!

As always I love the blast effect with these (and the extra hands!). And MSWord, I love the new packaging. Will this also trickle down to the Marvel line?

And looking forward to this going up on the Disney store site.
