Found Rey's Speeder, black resistance X-wing with closed foils, and First Order Star Destroyer yesterday.

I grabbed three TFA books at Five Below yesterday...  All of them kids books, one was a look and find with BB-8 on the cover, there was a cardboard cut-out assembly book, and the Ships of the Galaxy book. All, of course, $5 or less.

The Force Awakens / Re: Where is Rey?

I can say that generally, my boy identifies with "boy" toys. He knows that the Barbies and Ponies are "girl" toys in the "girl" aisle.  We don't teach him this stuff, but I assume it is a mix of marketing, talking with friends and emulating my excitement over the things I like.  This is a regular topic of conversation around the house.

That said, he's got the Lego Rey Speeder and he loves it.  Would he love a Rey figure?  I dunno.  Rey isn't really a very feminine character compare to, say, Padme.

I found it at TRU.  My son loves the ships more than he does action figures, so I have gone overboard with these for him.   :)  It is tough finding information on what is out, what to expect, etc.  Hasbro collectors have it good.  :)

Anyone else collecting the Hot Wheels ships?  I bought my son the remaining ships he was missing for Christmas, and I just picked up the 2-pack with the Star Destroyer and Mon Cal frigate.  The only one that eludes me so far is the Rebels TIE which is in a 2-pack with the Ghost.  I even have the two versions of the snowspeeder (Luke's is packed in with a "playset").

The ships at the start of that clip are really awesome.

Oh - also - so this is the first SW movie without a limb being severed or an injury along those lines, right?

And did anyone catch any 1138s?

No limbs being cut off but two pretty significant impalements!

I thought for sure that Rey would take Ren's hand in the duel.  Set him further on the path to becoming Vader.

All excellent points.  I totally agree about the stuff on the cargo ship.  Entertaining, but extraneous. 

Perhaps Von Sydow plays Kanan Jarrus?

Palpatine's holo was an enormous floating head in ESB...

They never elaborated on how that lightsaber ended up in that box. 

My mind is still swimming with this movie.  Just awesome and completely heartbreaking.

You can't look at the Kohl's ticket price as any indication of anything.  There is ALWAYS a sale.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Class I Vehicles

IIRC, from the review at Jeditemplearchives says
the droid socket is changed for Chooper (platform for his short legs, guess that means other astromechs won't fit?), the back end is closed, the cockpit inside redesigned, probably to accommodate 5 POA figures.

My son has this one... The back panel on this ship comes off, and the floor of the droid socket can slip out.  This slip-out is used to raise the floor for Chopper to fit properly.  Removed, standard astromechs sit fine.
