Jealous that you have Thrawn and Raddus. Ebay?

I got my R1 phasma/finn here - think it's same packaging. it's a good site, managed to complete my TFA singles there

some from the same set also available cheaper on group-on but no Finn/phasma

I say not included as apparantly these were released with Rogue One waves but how come they have different packaging?
All my Rogue One and TFA multipack that was the TRU exclusive.

From what I was reading tonight SAF sold out of their remaining 150 Gammy Guards in 30 minutes! I would of liked one but the cost puts me off. I know it’s not SAF bumping the price up but over £30!! :shock:

Why a TFA product with a Rogue One wave?

Post by Taffius »

I have been trying to understand why Hasbro roll out packaging from a previous line within another line wave. For example:

(Source: Jeditemple ArchivesVisual Guides, http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/star-wars-rogue-one/)

TRU exclusive TFA 6 pack. Released as a Multipack under Rogue One multipack group. Target exclusive Saga 7 pack is another example (but I do not have - it is a want).

Were they purely a "bridge" to Rogue One release or a deal between a toy retailer and Hasbro and one offs? Anyone know why Hasbro / Stores did this? Was it just shifting older stock under an exclusive banner?

Well Boston, Lincs HB only had Rey and Kylo black series and some hot wheels. Next door in TK Maxx there were some Hot Wheels too.

That was about it. A little pants to say the least.

Boxed up all my VC mocs to free up some space, means I can get the boxed ships/vehicles out of storage. Would love to display them next to their original counterparts.

That's an impressive run db94, it shows you how nice those modern boxes look and it's great to see them against the originals. Maybe you could split displaying them into two lots and put out half the originals against their modern counterparts out for a while and then swap them over. I only have limited space so need to rotate things every now and then but it's nice to have a change around and keeps things fresh on display.

What a great collection of ships and creatures you have.
I’ve never seen those Vintage collection ones before as I’ve only been collecting again for the last two years and only collect vintage.
I love the vibrant colours of the VC, and my don’t they command a good price; the Tauntan VC can be more expensive that a vintage one on eBay!
As has already been mentioned they would look great displayed VC beside vintage, would like to see pictures of whatever you chose to do.
Thanks for posting.

Excellent condition, there is a faint indented line on the front which is hard to show in a photo. See last pic.

Thanks
