I loved Fighter Pods when they came out years ago. Finally, there was a Star Wars line I could actually afford to buy and store tons and tons of characters. Then, about 5 years ago, after four series of figures, the line ended. I’ve been making custom Fighter Pods ever since.
So I was amazed (and am still in a little disbelief) when I read an article on starwars.com about a new toy line called Micro Force and realized…these are Fighter Pods!! The first wave, due in December, features blind bags with 2 previously released figures. But the second wave has all new figures from Rogue One and The Force Awakens along with some old figures!!!!! Thank you Hasbro!!!!!!!!!!
I can’t believe they are back! I am so excited I can barely contain myself. My brain has already started a list of characters I want them to make (Old Luke, Poe, Chirrut, K-2SO, Snap Wexley, Unkar Plutt, Jess Pava…).
This go around, the series consists solely of blind bags, and the figure count is lower. Hopefully, these changes will allow the line to last a long time.
I will definitely be picking up the first series, if for no other reason that to help ensure the second series comes out. Besides, my parts reserves for customs is getting dangerously low, and I never did pick up a C-3PO.
