Hopefully Clone Wars Maul this time
ShopDisney has the new wave up online. If you order $75+ use ShipMagic for free shipping
^This, with the Spider legs please. And if they want to be even more generous, give us Savage Opress.
Picked up the Din Mando set. Pretty cool but lazy baby Yoda and plastic cape keeps it from being a homerun set.
annnnnnnnd no pins in shipment. time to talk to walmart
i gotta wonder what the pin thing was all about...was it supposed to be an in-store promotion only?
Some got it, but honestly it seems that most people didn't get it. I am pretty sure that the in-store one popped up in December or was it November so doubt it was supposed to be in-store. What I want to know is where are all these pins that were supposed to get shipped with our Dins? Someone, somewhere has a huge box of pins now and is going, "What are we going to do with these?" or probably donated them/tossed the box.
I didn’t get pins with my Dins, but didn’t care about them anyways so I am not going to waste 10 minutes of my life to maybe get $10 back.
This month's haul.
Pulse delivered Gideon, 1/6th Mando Death Trooper from my local hobby store and MAFEX Specialist/Grunt Death Trooper from Japan.
Anyone been collecting the mission fleet line? It’s surprisingly enjoyable. I just rewatched season 7 and I hope we get a full run or clone wars vehicles and figures.
Just pulled my Bandai R2-D2 out of one of the moving boxes. The sculpt is perfect!
Finally got a Mandalorian with Child/pram. Child is an okay bonus(I wasn’t going to get the $10 Black Series Child because come on...). This is the 1st time I’ve seen a BS Mandalorian(from the show) in person. The helmet is a tight fit. This could’ve definitely benefitted from a cloth cape. Would’ve made it stand out from the single packed Beskar armored Mandalorian release.
Articulation is a mix of new style with the barbell neck joints and pinless elbows(though I wish they bent more than 90 degrees here). Legs have the wider range of motion at the hips like most of the new BS bucks but double jointed knees. It’s a best of both worlds thing going on with the lower body articulation. Only lacking compared to the new bucks by not being pinless at the knees.
Overall a decent set that I think is priced $5 more than it should be.
There are a lot of sellers on eBay that offer cloth capes directly aimed at Mando. I prefer GPSLot, that's where I get all my soft goods from, 90% of it is wired, ships out of Cali
Oooh I completely forgot Mafex made a death trooper. Might need to hunt that down.
That MAFEX Death Trooper is on par to the SHF one that came with the blu ray set. At least, to me it does. I liked both
You better chase down a MAFEX Death Trooper then @Soupy.
a cloth cape would have done wonders to being able to put both the jetpack, cape and blaster on at the same time on all version of him...whether it's the 4" or 6" figure, it seems to be either/or for the most part in terms of getting a tight secure fit...
There are new US stamps that will have pictures of Droids.

Heck yeah!!! Now I have to stalk the USPS site! Thanks for the head's up on these.
