Couldn't resist trying to put a Rebels run together. Although I think it will be harder and a bit more expensive than I thought. Oddly split over three lines (Rebels, Force Awakens and Rogue One) there are some cool figures but also quite disjointed. For example Hera and Zeb never got their own cards. And Sabine. It until Rogue One. But the Mission 2 figure packs are cool.
I have a few more bits on the way and going to have to hunt hard for the mission sets. I also susspect I'll try to get all the figures from the Rebels line…

I've never really looked at this line before, the art work is great.
They would look great in a cabinet.

I am fairly sure a few of these characters will get VC cards with the Ashoka show coming - Thrawn 100%, so now was a good time to grab these ones before the prices jump again (and Thrawn is already expensive). Actually Sabine Wren, Thrawn, Fenn Rau and to an extent Rex are all already pricey for real modern figures and in the Rebels Line I'm trying to understand the price behind the Temple Guard figure (which is way cool looking). Again it seems most stock is in the US as well, so shipping sucks. I hate that in the US they got Walmart versions of the core vehicles with figures and we got the standard boxed version (not so much that I have to get them) but I do wish Hasbro would remember the UK and EU as a whole is a sales market and worked on better distribution - a moan about them that stands true for todays stuff.

the more I look at the Rebels line the better it looks, is was small, 30 odd basic figures + the 2 packs, but had a lovely selection of figures from Clone Wars and OT/PT films + the Rebels cartoon - and the menacing Stormtrooper helmet artwork is very cool.

Of course, you will be ahead of the field when the next HasLab is announced as The Ghost!

Oh - I wish the next HasLab is the Ghost - But at the same time that would be a big dollar item - 500 at least I would imagine :)

But slightly less pricey is the Lego offerings... They have already announced a new Ghost ($170) and a T-6 Shuttle ($70) - still not cheep, but can't wait.

Dude - so NOT Tat. The Classic Edition 4 pack is great, for me it is the set that bridges the original Kenner line with the new Hasbro, to that end I think it is actually an important collectors piece.

Also, for me, the Retro line is one of the best things Hasbro has done of late, lovely pickups.

It's actually so not tat it's going to remain sealed, unlike pretty much everything else produced after 1990

Yes :)
Got them, I'm only really after the droids, for my daughter and pair for me. Planning to sell the rest but what's the bet when I see them I crack and keep a set.
