nice but rich for a collector like me..

This on the other hand i am pretty sure isn't the vader we were looking at last page but a reasonable price.. i might have to look up a review later it looks pretty good, and is only 49$
Ebay prices were pretty similar to the guy selling on trade me by having somebody post stuff over? lol

*Update* free postage on the above vader which looks really good, it however is a plastic kitset with 'limited' movement, though with almost as much movement if not more than the six inch vader, but the capes are plastic with points that clip away for poses but it limits the figure quite abit, despite that the figure looks really nice.
If only we could replace the plastic cloaks with fabric this model would be really great, stickers and water transfers included, but some people may prefer to paint. (update two, link was removed item and a broken link for some reason) i really am debating grabbing one myself.

Perhaps it'll be the yet un-named upgraded looking X-wing?
Though i'm not sure i love the change.. though lately any change to the things i loved at childhood has been a huge disappointment and hopefully these wont be.

I don't know how/why hasbro would run six inch vehicles besides small speeders since they don't make scale vehicles for the 4 inch figures most the time.

It might be nice to see a small display/playset of the falcon bridge for six inch figures but i kind of dread if hasbro rock up with a scale falcon for six inch figures, for reasons of both cost and the latter series being shafted.

But i do hope the micro machines or 'diecast' might be towards the action fleet size.. i'll always hope hasbro finally realize.


But at least it looks like this year and next should have a damn a lot of figures dropping!
(I feel like last year was disappointing in that way)

Hugely excited by the potential of this. I hope we see a return to the classic Micro Machines with lots of little plastic ships from the new films! :D

Definitely! I was always looking forward to the raft of new figures that would be released, but this announcement has me more excited than ever for the new film!
