Micro Force Ships

I was fortunate enough to find the new Micro Force ships and picked up the Poe and Kylo two-pack.

These small ships each fit in the palm of my hand, but still fit a pilot. Both even have detail inside the cockpit.

My favorite feature is the slot for BB-8 in Poe’s X-Wing. Hopefully there will be a future version of Luke’s X-Wing with a similar slot for R2.

New Micro Force Figures

After reporting here that the U.K. was receiving Micro Force figures before the U.S., I’m happy to report that they are finally showing up in the U.S.

I am fortunate to have 5 Targets along my normal travels and 3 more about 20 min outside of that. Only one store had Series 3; a majority of the rest just got Series 4 in, and one still has Series 2.

Here are Rogue One figures Chirrut and Baze from Series 3 and K-2SO and Cassian from Series 4.

Some of these Targets also had pegs for the Micro Force vehicles, which a helpful Target employee told me are scheduled to arrive beginning this week. And they are inexpensive! The two-packs are only $10 and the single packs are $6. That’s much cheaper than I was expecting.

Series 3 The Last Jedi figures Poe, Rose, Leia, BB-9E, and hologram Snoke

From the Solo movie, we have Series 4 figures Chewbacca, Mimban Trooper, and Lando

And lastly, we have reissues of the Clone Trooper and Pilot Luke (two of my all-time favorite figures) from Series 4 and a Jawa from Series 3.

I couldn’t resist throwing a Rogue One shot in to the mix. Series 5 has a Scarif Trooper to add to the Imperial side. Hopefully we’ll get a Bodhi and a Krennic to complete the main characters.

I still can’t believe my favorite toy line us back and has so many more figures to come!

Micro Force Series 3 Found!

I was going by a Target that is somewhat out of my normal rounds, so I decided to pop in just in case they had Series 3. And they did! Series 3 and 4 had both been out in the UK for awhile, and I was beginning to wonder if they were going to be released elsewhere.

I picked up three packs and got three new figures and some reprints from the original Fighter Pod series. I scored Snoke, Chirrut Imwe, and Rose!

I love the little Chirrut picture on the back!

As a bonus, due to what I’m assuming was a factory mistake, Rose came with not one but two Sandtroopers!

New Fighter Pods/Micro Force Customizer

I’ve said before that I am the internet’s leading Fighter Pod/Micro Force customizer.  I claimed this title because I seemed to be the ONLY Fighter Pod/Micro Force customizer. But no more!  WOMPS reader bearfacedgeeks sent me pictures of their great customs along with descriptions!

Three different Ashokas – Rebels, later Clone Wars and the original

I liked that they did Clone Wars Anakin and Episode 3 Obi-Wan but not visa versa so I swapped heads on the two figures and painted them.

Thanks for sharing bearfacedgeeks!  Great job!

Even more new Micro Force Figures!

Jedi News has released a press image of the Series 5 packaging along with an actual figure shot of Enfys Nest from the new Solo movie!

I’m especially looking forward to Maz and Enfys Nest.  The “thumbs-up” BB-8 looks cute too.  I’m wondering if the Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma figures will be new sculpts or reprints of series 2.

I still haven’t found Series 3 and 4 yet, but I’m sure they will arrive in my area soon.  I can’t believe how many new characters we are getting in a line that’s been dormant for five years!  Thanks Hasbro!
