    Does anyone know how Hasbro's licensing works? Does Disney get a royalty on each figure, or did Hasbro pay a flat amount for the license for X years?

    I hope Hasbro keeps the license. Their Marvel and SW figures have been getting better and better. Slowly, but progress nonetheless

    No, it’s not a flat amount. It’s a minimum guarantee against a royalty per unit.

    I do too for the sake of consistency. The only other American company that wanted it in the mid-90's was Mattel IIRC and seeing how they handle their toys, I'd rather see the license stay with Hasbro.

    Agreed. Mattel is terrible, I hope to God they never get their hands on SW or Marvel. They ruined the 6” Halo line too, and I won’t forgive them for that.

    I'm glad whatever part of the country you live in is such a land of plenty, but out here there are at least two figures from every wave that you basically have to be on top of them as they stock the shelves to actually get. I'm usually quite bad at determining which figures are worth preordering and which aren't (Kitty Pryde from the Juggernaut wave, Killmonger from the M'Baku wave, etc.) But with Star Wars you don't see nearly the same drop on Amazon that you do with Marvel. What's a toy collector with anxiety to do?

    I like on the TRU X-wing they did the little diorama with Biggs standing in the cockpit like the original.

    Name a black series figure collectors have panicked about in the last few years and you can probably find it for $15 or less on BBTS. There is no reason to believe a character from a TV show that hasn’t even appeared on the show yet to create an out of the ordinary demand for her will be any different.

    I picked up Cara Dune the other day after it had sat there for a couple of weeks at the local gamestop I browse(lol). I know I want IG-88, and start getting some pilots. Probably pick up Wedge next payday too. I'm not out for all of them though and only get characters that interest me or that I liked.

    Stopped by Games Stop and bought the Purge trooper, 2nd sister, Shock trooper, Cal Kestis and Wedge. They had Ceremonial Luke but I spent enough.

    Agreed. I said it in the SHF thread, but yeah I’m eagerly awaiting the Black Series

    Oh crap...I was going to wait it out and see if it was plentiful and on sale like IG-11. Oh well, I'm sure it will be back somewhere, sometime.
