    Honestly, hopefully something I don't need, keeping up with all these different lines is getting pretty tough anymore.

    Ship date for those TVC R2-D2s I preordered from Amazon moved up to July! Excited to get them a little sooner.

    I don't have too many TVCs opened, but since they're all 3.75" figures...

    Something like this can work:

    Star Wars Vintage Collection 3.75 Inch Figure Stand (pack of 10) | eBay <---3d printed, kinda pricier than already made plastic ones available in the market.

    You can use a variety of Protech stands:

    Protech AFS-2 Black Action Figure Stands for Vintage, 1977-1985, 3.75" Star Wars Figures, 2" Wide, 1/8" Peg
    Protech AFS-2C Clear Action Figure Stands for Vintage 3.75" Star Wars Figures, 2" Wide, 1/8" Peg
    Protech AFS-1 Black Action Figure Stands for Modern, 1995 - Present, 3.75" Star Wars Figures, 2" Wide, 3/32" Peg
    Protech AFS-1C Clear Action Figure Stands for Modern, 1995 - Present, 3.75" Star Wars Figures, 2" Wide, 3/32" Peg
    (you'll probably want to use the ones listed as "newer")

    Doll Stands:
    Kaiser 1075 Black Adjustable Doll Stand, fits 3.5 to 5 inch Dolls or Action Figures, waist width adjusts from 0.625 to 0.75 inches
    Kaiser 1001 White Adjustable Doll Stand, fits 3.5 to 5 inch Dolls or Action Figures, waist width adjusts from 0.625 to 0.75 inches
    Plymor DSP-20B Black Adjustable Action Figure Stand, fits 3.75 and 4 inch Action Figures, Waist is 0.75 to 1 inches wide, 2.5 to 3 inches around
    Plymor DSP-20S Silver Adjustable Action Figure Stand, fits 3.75 and 4 inch Action Figures, Waist is 0.75 to 1 inches wide, 2.5 to 3 inches around
    Plymor DSP-20W White Adjustable Action Figure Stand, fits 3.75 and 4 inch Action Figures, Waist is 0.75 to 1 inches wide, 2.5 to 3 inches around

    Of course these are all from collecingwarehouse.com. You can find similar stands on Amazon and eBay too. For me personally, when I had my full display of clones, I used a ton of Protechs and whatever stands that did come with certain figures:

    It's perfect 'toy' scale but true 1:18 is the DeAgostini model (which isn't too far off that big Hero Series X-Wing).

    It's cheaper to use the original design than create a whole new one.

    Missed Rex on Pulse but it looks like my BBTS pre-order from Nov 2021 has carried over to the new release, the order links to the same page as the front page.

    Already got Rex and Fox. Looks like I'm still going to wait for them to put out other clones they haven't yet made.

    Does Super7 REaction toyline(s) work well with Kenner star wars stuff (which I assume is the intention of the line existence is)?

    There is someone complaining that hasbro is lazy to do these reissues because now his original rex and fix, which he admits he doesn't plan to sell, "lost value"

    .... ugh

    essentially, yeah, they're more modern, often better sculpted than the Kenner figures, but essentially in that same vein...

    that one actually stuck around on the pegs for awhile...not sure if it ever made clearance but unlike some earlier Fett stuff it was pretty easy to get

    I never saw it around me, but heard people were finding him elsewhere. Think I have too many Boba Fett fans around me.

    I know this figure did go on clearance around me. I was surprised to see that happen since I was under the impression the figure was in high demand.
