Anyone else subscribe to the Smuggler's Bounty? I thought I'd try it out even though I don't collect the POP Vinyls, and they threw in a variant TIE Pilot into 1 of every 5 boxes. I think it's pretty lame that they're throwing a chase variant into a subscription box, and I'd be a little ticked off if I collected all of these and had to resort to eBay to get a full set.

So I bought a Xbox One just for Battlefront last week, and finally got it hooked up to Live over the weekend and have been playing essentially ever since haha.

It takes some time to get used to since this isn't like every other first person shooter... the weapons have unlimited ammo but you can only fire a certain amount before the guns overheat. It's essentially a "run and gun" game and you can't really hide and camp anywhere, instead having to use cover to recharge and regroup.

It's also more fun if you have friends playing... I've been playing rounds with a group of people from another forum I post on and various modes are a lot more fun when you can travel in packs, defend each other, and warn everybody else where enemies are coming from over the microphone.

My favorite mode is probably "Walker Assault" where the Rebels have to destroy AT-AT walkers.

I'd say play until you get to Level 15, as you unlock a "Scout" trait which hides your movements from the radar. In addition, all the better weapons begin to unlock like that rifle Boba Fett uses. I bought the Deluxe edition so I'm using the DL-44 since I find myself in close quarters most of the time, and it's designed as a 1-2 shot kill weapon. I'd prefer to stay back and snipe but it's pretty tough to do so.

Also when playing as heroes, pick ANYONE but Palpatine. Quite possibly the worst character in the game. He only uses Force Lightning as a weapon, and it's good against groups of enemies in hallways but other than that he's defenseless and worthless.

And yes, it's largely co-op and single player is virtually non-existent unless you want to play against the computer. I agree with Jesse that they need to add more maps soon. The ones they have now aren't bad, but they will get old very quickly. Another gripe... I wish you could select the map yourself or vote on it ala Halo. Everything is randomly selected in game, and if you were a Rebel the first mission, you're Imperial the next, and vice versa.

Got my Vader and Stormtrooper from HLJ yesterday after letting them sit in the Private Warehouse for close to 2 months. Haven't opened them yet (and probably won't for a while) but it's kinda funny how delayed these were because they come in the old Rebels packaging from last year.

Vader has a bunch of accessories (4 sets of hands - "can hold a lightsaber", open, fist, and "Force choke") but the plastic looks... cheap? The figure is way too shiny in parts of the costume that shouldn't be shiny. The Stormtrooper looks like it could rival the SH Figuarts version although he just comes with the E-11 blaster. I wish more Stormtrooper figures came with the bigger rifle, only the Hasbro and Revoltech versions do.

Maybe, just MAYBE, during the holidays I'll take some comparison shots. Laziness and all. :P

Caved and bought the TRU promotional C-3PO on Amazon for $10. There's a TRU 5 minutes from me that I've checked every day since the promo started 3 weeks ago and of course the store never got it in, nor do they have any clue what I'm talking about when I ask them. Stings paying double the price but I can knock it off my list.

Yes.  I have a Yahoo article on Xbox BF deals too I will post here later for you too.

I haven't hooked an external HD up yet but have every intention to eventually.

Cool, thanks Jesse. I'm debating waiting for Black Friday deals but most stores are running a deal right now where you get a free game when you buy a console.

I figure I'll need an external HD at some point, especially since most games are going to be at least 30GB and the space will fill up fast, but I'm a physical media guy and buy 1-2 games per year so I figure I'll be good for a few years.

Okay, so I'm going to pick up a XBone soon so I can play Battlefront (Xbox beats PS4 since I have friends with the system for online, plus Halo). However, I've heard that I can save some cash by buying the 500GB system and adding my own external hard drive for additional storage space. Is this true?

It's almost as if people are excited to finally be able to buy Star Wars toys after almost 3 years of empty pegs and shelf space!

Perfect for every Star Wars on Christmas display!

Stopped by a small town Walmart on the way back from a college football game this weekend. Found multiples of most of 6 inch Wave 2, and was able to snag the only Phasma they had. Also picked up a Poe with fancy paint apps.

Terrible move making Finn the carryover from wave 1, as there were dozens of Finns on the shelf.

Stopped in TRU last night to continue the hunt for the LEGO 3PO and found the Snowtrooper Commander. They had 8, and half of them did not have the TRU Exclusive sticker.

Also saw Constable Zuvio and Poe... almost got Poe but the paint apps were sloppy, so I passed.

Got Shuttle Tydirium over the weekend along with the ROTS LEGO Poster, finishing off the set.

Just need to grab the Sandcrawler and I'll be caught up with all of the OT sets.
