Bandai's Grogu is my least favorite figure of 2020. That thing's junk.

There's very little i expect a grogu figure to do, I only bought the SHF version for the pram and cause it was on sale.

I wish Medicom would announce more Star Wars releases, would be nice to have more options for characters.

The picture's from Isaac Wong's Facebook page.

The upper torso gap is scary & it being a large figure I hope it's much more sturdier than the usual Mafex releases.

Personally I'm satisfied with the SHF so this isn't for me but it's nice knowing they will continue with the line even at a snail's pace.

Nice, was worried they stopped the line.
Guess it could be a long while before they approach season 2 characters.

Anything that replaces the turd BS figure in my display is welcomed. This will be a huge upgrade for that.

Anyone knows what differences there are between IG-11 and IG-88 besides the bandolier? I already have shf's IG-11, and I'm thinking of getting this one too and use one of them as IG-88.

I'm sure there are other smaller differences, but the biggies for me are the bandoliers and the hands. 88 has clamps, 11 has fingers.

Thanks Robo. Yeah the first things to notice are the bandoliers and hands.

However, having just spent 2 hours comparing pics of 88 and 11, I can now say that they're in fact nothing alike. All the greebling and tiny details are so different, if SHF or Mafex ever wanted to do a proper IG-88, they would barely be able to reuse anything from IG-11. Which makes Hasbro's reuse of 88 as 11 an even worse crime.

No news on Mafex Mando? He should be coming out this month, right?
