Weekly Wednesday Haul – Force Friday Edition

It really feels like this kind of forced #ForceFriday deal on Star Wars toys isn’t nearly as huge as they would like for it to be.  I doubt there will ever be a good recreation of the whole Prequels toys madness.  It does make it convenient to just get everything I care about all at once I suppose.  Though that wasn’t a lot.  I’m pretty much only into Black Series figures these days.  Of the figures released I really only cared about 3 or 4 of them, maybe, one of which is Rey, which I passed on because I’d rather hold out for the Resistance outfit or possibly even the Figuarts.

I did end up picking up three Black Series figures though, first is Grand Admiral Thrawn.

The biggest travesty of Episode 7,8, and 9, is it negates the Thrawn Trilogy books, which were pretty much considered by most to BE Episode 7, 8, and 9.  They were really great and wrapped up things well.  A lot of this was due to how awesome Thrawn was.  Basically he took over the remains of the Empire after the Death Star II was destroyed.  It seems like Thrawn is still in play some how, I think maybe he has shown up in the Rebels show maybe, and I heard rumors he may yet show up in Episode 8 or 9.  He’s a nice figure for a basic officer dude.  I hate that he doesn’t include his Force Negating Ysalamiri.  It’s a small lizard with the ability to negate the use of the Force in a bubble around it’s presence.  Thrawn carries one around on his neck full time for the sole purpose of protecting himself from Jedi light and dark.

Even better, the Black Series has put out regular old classic Storm Troopers again.  I picked up two of them but unless they all vanish quickly I expect to pick up several more in the next few months.  Generic squad builders like this are so great for a lot of reasons.  They tend to look best in packs of 5 or 6, but they also work great for photos since it gives some generic dudes for any hero to battle against in great numbers.
