These are leaked images of the new Force Awakens figure line. Im not overly inspired by these, they look as bad as the recent Mission Series 5 point articulation. The opinion of collectors is that there will hopefully be a better articulated and better quality series later on in the vain of the Black Series of even better the Vintage Collection.

WTF do they put cheap accessories in the packages for! ARGH!!!!! It infuriates me. :( Spend more on the figures.

I think Finn and Rey, Ray, Rea? I'm not sure on the spelling as I'm avoiding it myself but c'mon these are plop. :?
Finn looks like a Bubba Gump Shrimp figure. "Like I was sayin, shrimps is the fruit of the sea!"

Rant over. Standing down. :P :lol:

Kylo is VERY Revan and is that Hondo Onaka from the Clone Wars???

The play sets and vehicles look a load of pants too, really cheap chinese pound shop pants.

Now the good news is that there should be a 6" line later on and a Black Series 3 & 3/4 line too so will avoid all this lot and focus on the better quality stuff, if we can get it.

This link shows the 2 different cards with different free "tat" with the figures. Whether the figs are different themselves I don't actually know. I'm pretty sure they are the more I look . . . . just different levels of tat.

I want to cry but just find myself laughing through my tears.They have officially killed off the 3 3/4 line.
Is it just me or are action figures actually going backwards in quality, design and proportion.

I'm gutted :lol: :cry: :lol: :cry: These really are awful.

. . . . . .maybe they will look better in real life.

Maybe . . . . .

(Don't get me wrong the 6" look better but still . . .)

But then again maybe we are seeing the death of the good quality action figures?

IMO the figures have gone backwards since then with articulation over quality. I loved the power of the jedi range, and even the TAC series.

I was hoping these would be good, back to basic figures, but I feel they are splitting the market down to kids figures that are crap and adult figures (black series) that are too expensive.

Having said that TESCO have the black series 2 (blue card) at £4 a pop. That's worth a dabble, they had starkiller and malgus Friday near me.

The price and quality of the TAC line was just great, two figures for a tenner, great card and art, plus a decent bubble design and cracking pack in extras like figure stands and coins to collect too.

The VC line I adored but the cost at £10 I had trouble justifying, many I got cheaper in cases per wave where the unit price was down to just on £8. But these mission series figures, terrible quality and £10 for two in one bubble? The only ones I had were 99p loose figures and packs bought for me for presents. The only two figures to come out of that lot that were near good were the two fetts
