        Huh, I wasn't expecting that. I wonder why Hasbro isn't doing their own distribution there anymore. This could be a good thing, Hot Toys knows that market a lot better than Hasbro. This makes a very weird licensing triangle: Hasbro sub-licenses 12-inch figures to Sideshow, Sideshow distributes and works with Hot Toys for some 12-inch pieces, and now Hot Toys distributes Hasbro product in Japan.

        Didn't Tomy do it in the past? Did they do it up until this Hot Toys deal?

      I agree. It just goes to show her popularity among the fans. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Jaina-like character in a future stand-alone movie. Would

      Star Trek Beyond: the one where Kirk wears a leg holster and Star Lord's costume

      Saw Star Trek Beyond. This film felt more like Star Trek than either of the previous two. Not a perfect film, but I enjoyed it.

      I think it puts both companies in a tough spot; she isn't "real" in the new canon anymore, but that doesn't mean she can't exist in toy form

      I'm disappointed to see no new Force awakens figures at Comic-Con

      That was LAST year's movie; no one collects old stuff.

      But I was disappointed (but sadly, not surprised) about that, too.

      Unless it's an error, online it shows $2.29 at Costco, a $.16 drop from yesterday!?! After tomorrow's driving, I'll likely need some fuel; perhaps I should

      The last SW figure I bought for myself was Mosep. It was insulting how he compared to the Combiner Wars Alpha Bravo I got about the same time.

      I'm actually too excited about the new 5POA Stormtrooper figure to have really noticed much else about the show.

      Sigh. Okay. Then why are 5 point figures every bit as expensive as vintage was when it was cancelled? Why aren't the 6" figures less expensive?
