A Better Way to 5POA?

Like it or not, Hasbro’s probably not going to move away from 5POA for a while in the 3.75″ lineup.  But, maybe there’s a better way for them to entice the market to purchase more of these figures.

Would a set of alternate arms be a good way to do this?  For myself, yes, this would be a very fun way for Hasbro to make this product line much more appealing as it would help aleviate some of the frustrations with the 5POA concept.

With Rogue One, we saw most of the product names shielded with animal designations such as shark, seal, owl, unicorn, etc. Episode VIII product will follow suit adapting the NATO phonetic alphabet with terms like “Victor”, “Tango” and “Foxtrot”. These names have been spotted in databases already so get ready to learn and speculate as to what they may stand for in the film.

Rumor Report: 4 “New” 3.75″ Black Series Figures

TBS_rumor_logo

Stop. Rumor Time. We’ve received a tad bit of intel regarding a future (not necessarily the next) wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures coming to Walmart next year.

Without spilling the beans fully, I can hint that all four will probably be repacks; two of them are potential army builders, one is a very requested figure from the Original Trilogy offered briefly in the Vintage Collection and one is a perennial favorite.

Any guesses? Leave them in the comment section or forums and stay tuned for more vague rumors and cryptic writings (maybe even for Episode VIII) in the coming days.
