    HAHA...It was the most beautiful cube I had ever seen. A computer-generated cube birthed by a robot in the wee hours of the morning.

    It looks pretty good! Gotta work on the laser cannons and the seam between the pieces, but I’m really happy with it!

    I just watched episode 3 of Bad Batch, I hope we get an updated Crosshair.

    We are, the back of the box for an Imperial Crosshairs was leaked right before the show dropped.

    Hey guys, I don't really follow this thread, but does anyone here have any original Episode 1 figures from 1999? How are those holding up for you? I pulled mine out today and they had the gummy sticky feeling like when the plastic starts to break down. Like the original MASK figures if you know what that's like.

    I was kind of surprised. I guess they are 20 years old. But I didn't really expect them to be breaking down already.

    I don't have any of those figures. Have you tried washing them with hot water and dish soap? If that doesn't help, try wiping them down with a soft cloth, cotton ball or tissue with some Zippo or Ronsonol lighter fluid on it. Try an inconspicuous area first to make sure it doesn't harm the paint.

    Found these at a Walmart today. There was a Bo-Katan but I skipped her as...I didn't get the other Mandalorian Black series figures.

    Watched the first episode...episodes? Pretty good! Got Wrecker and Tech pre-ordered. Can't wait to complete the team.

    They look great! Can't wait until they get around to Echo, he's got so much going on.

    Yeah, same. I'm not the biggest SW fan to be honest but SW armored characters are my bag. Echo looks great in the show and I love the ARC trooper kama he wears as part of his gear. Does Hasbro usually do soft goods for stuff like that in the Black Series? I know it seems kinda random but considering they've done ARC kama in soft goods in the 3 /34 inch line it doesn't seem like a stretch to do it on the Black series.

    They do it sometimes, like Commander Fox and the purge troopers. The upcoming Echo seems to have a molded plastic for the kama. I prefer the cloth goods for the least amount of limitation when posing, and because I love it being a carryover from the original Kenner line.

    I should have them all somewhere. But mostly misb. I think if you just leave them out with some air circulation they will dry up. At least that’s how it worked with other toys that got gummy on me.

    A shame. I didn't really pay attention to the upcoming line considering it's Target exclusive, haha.

    Thankfully it looks like any potential Echo will be based off the Bad Batch clone mold with Echo styled parts, so perhaps it could go either way regarding plastic vs soft goods kama. I'm in the soft goods camp myself.
