Cool.  I love the army of astromechs we've accumulated over the years.  Even if I've got no recollection of 80% of these from the movies, they make for fun filler material around other figures and in vehicle displays.

Emperor's Wrath Darth wasn't too hard to find after awhile, but I never saw a Prototype Boba Fett in stores.  I'm guessing this will be more like Darth - hard to find initially, but probably not too hard in another six months.

Got my 10 day pre-shipping notice from BBTS today for the Darth Revan wave.

I'm a novice with video games. 

We have an Xbox One and my son really wants Lego Indiana Jones. It appears its only compatible with Xbox 360.  What do you think the chances of them creating backward compatibility for this in the future?  Not sure if they've made any particular statements about all 360 games will eventually be backward compatible on Xbox One or not.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set

Yakface posted that this is now available on Walmart.com.  The price seems to be jumping around between $200 and $300.  When I last checked it was at $220 with free shipping.  Not bad.

A quick search shows this is on Target.com as well, but for the full MSRP of $300. 

Nothing on TRU.com and Amazon's seems to be only through the Amazon Marketplace.

I actually like this one a little bit.  I like it when its just The Ghost crew on some random mission, and it was nice to see Zeb have a role in an episode for a change.

I'm still hoping for a big sweeping story arc that wraps everything up at the end of the season.  I thought that is what Thrawn was going to be about, but so far we're going nowhere fast.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

If you look at the highlighted letters, and the comments on YF.com you'll see some guesses on what we'll get.

TR-BF-PB-ST

Tusken Raider
Boba Fett
Ponda Baba
StormTrooper

Seems like some decent figures, although I'm not so sure about Walrus Man.  Are people really asking for this figure to be reissued?  Maybe he'll have a major role in Rogue One...

I actually didn't have as much of a problem with this week's episode.  It moved along at an okay pace.  Sure there was some "suspend disbelief" stuff, but that has been par for the course all along.

My only hope is that the payoff starts to come before too long.  Unless knowing the individual characters in these other camps is critical, there is probably a quicker way of getting to the likely step of banding together against The Saviors.  We already know The Hilltop knows of other groups.  All they would need is one of these other groups to connect the dots to make it happen.

But they do need to tighten things up and get back to the core characters like Michonne kicking ass, Eugene building a bomb factory, etc.

What is the price point?  Is it the $18.84 tag shown in one of the photos?   A little bit of a savings over buying them separate.

Just picked up a Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle mini polybag at Target yesterday.  Probably not news to hardcore Lego fans, but this was the first time I had seen it or heard of it.

Can 7-9 year olds play Rock Band / Guitar Hero?  I've played those a few times and they seem pretty fun.

Yeah, the kids are always asking me for the first person shooter games with a mature rating.  Not going to happen with 7-9 year olds.

I'll have to check out Rocket League.

Cool. 

A bunch of us were just talking about the Nissan Rogue - Rogue One edition that is coming out soon.  Although not nearly as cool as the ones you posted with the blasters for use in heavy traffic.

Yeah, the kids have that one already.

I guess I should have asked if there are any newish games that have come out in the past six months or are coming out in the next few weeks that people would recommend for that age range.

The last new game we picked up was TFA Lego which for some reason they really never got in to as much as some of the Avengers Lego game.

Any suggestions on an Xbox One game to get for kids ages 7-10?
