I've lol'd at everyone complaining about that.  The figure is perfect imo.  It's among my favs in a while.

I'm not a big mint fan so I hate them but I always alert my coworkers.  One in particular loves them.

I've heard that's kinda their thing...  run short-run things here and there, can them, something else replaces it...  I dunno.  I loved Oreo frappes and then they took them away.  I felt like they stole a bit of my soul that day.

Back tonight (I like frappes) and the order window had a sign that said, "Shake machine is down.  No shake products available".

I expected a rampaging mob.

I'm thinking it is a hologram like that Michael Jackson thing.  An elaborate prank by Chappelle!

They're out up here my way Bill.  As of yesterday.

WM has third-party sales on its site I know...  They were showing up via those people right away for more as they sold out pretty quickly via Wal-Mart itself.  Not sure what to make of this.  Wouldn't be shocked if they jacked prices up based on sales rates though.  Target and TRU have been known to spike prices.  What's really weird though, is these are parts of an assortment and yet all the prices are different.  Like, very different.  ???

My local Wally has only a lone Han and a lone Finn. :(

The other one up the road has 2 Hans, 2 Lukes, 1 Finn.

Finn is a really nice figure.  It's a shame he's getting the shaft.

Meh, I'll live.  I want Luke, but Leia's take it or leave it to me.  Luke would be only thing I'm disappointed about, maybe.  But at the same time who knows what they have planned before then too.  Lotta time to September, assuming the release schedules stick for these new films.

Nice actually.  Hey they're creeping it back up.

Again, I'd drop $10-per if they'd get back to 07 levels of articulation...  Some get, some don't.  Most get at least extra elbow/wrist or knee, or even angle-cut elbows, wrists, and ball jointed knees and leaving it at that.

I'm ok without waist or ankle articulation if ankles/feet are sculpted flat, and I'd think a single-piece PVC torso with a ball jointed head is easier/cheaper to make.

I just want better than we've had.  SA is nice, but it's never been a necessity to me on anything but the mainest of the mains, and Stormies.

At shows, I still buy the 06 DSG, AT-AT Driver, etc.  They're great figures.  Simple, have nice features and accessories, and they're really not SA, but they're nicely poseable.  They can sit, stand, "walk", hold a weapon 2-handed...  That's all ya really need.  :)

Toy Ark had some interesting things revealed on their forums...  3.75" figures, 6" figures, an AT-AT with a pop-up nerf feature ala the Falcon (smaller than the BFATAT), and a TIE Fighter that may or may not be akin to the ones previewed in Season 2 of Star Wars: Rebels...  Kinda bent wings.

Seems interesting.  Assuming we still won't get good 3.75" figures outside of an exclusive line, if at all, but overall sounds like a neat group of toys being shown.  I'm kind of surprised they have anything for this at TF at all.

I wasn't able to go to TF this year either due to some things that have come up for me too.  *shrugs*

Would like to get back to the show next year maybe...  hopefully. :(

Saw the comments on this on Disqust after posted it, and it's funny that all people could do was complain about stuff they can't even see, and bitch about TFA products they won't get.  Wow.  :-X

I paid $125 for my R2 and it's as minty mint as minty mint gets.  Crystal clear bubble, no yellowing on figure or bubble, unpunched...  Only carded figure I own.   :-\

Anxious for the 2-pack of aliens and the furry dude.  Love alien randomness of any articulation style.

Yeah, that's a pretty weak excuse.

Indeed...  What exactly is the point there?  Is there now a canon battle on Tatooine?  And there will now be a canon battle on the Death Star (which I believe is one of the promised maps for expansion)?  Canon shouldn't have jack to do with a MP-only melee.

They could've just used OT characters and included a wide range of locations from the saga if they wanted to do it that way.  I mean, Rebels on the Death Star anyway?  Why not on Geonosis?  Or Coruscant?  Christophsis?  Illum mines?  Whatever.  Just make more maps available at launch and that alone would've improved the game a bit.

Still though, I played Titanfall this weekend for a lil over an hour...  It reminded me how much I hate the inability to reload on BF.  That adds, alone, a huge dynamic to gaming.  The "overheat" thing is just lame...  Hell, these guns HAVE magazines on them!  Troopers have extra mags even, in the films.  I can see extending a weapons capacity but taking that out completely is just a dismal choice.  Then I'm putting custom load-outs on my mechs because I suck, so I make "tanks"...  meanwhile the good players are using the nimble stuff and basically trying to snipe you or just run around too fast to kill, even in the nimble mech design.  But I was able to get in, have a positive k/d the whole time, and really kick some ass and even improve my score.  It felt great.  Didn't hurt that all the new content was free too, but it's an older game so neither here nor there on that.  It's just a slap in the face.

Like I'm amazed BF doesn't include Mos Eisley if you're going to be put on Tatooine...  How do you not include that?  Do you remember Tatooine for sand dunes, or do you remember it for the streets of Mos Eisley?  That's a big urban map right there, but they didn't do it.   :-\

But anyway yeah, I was talking to someone in the industry, and his insight was interesting...  Like basically they glommed onto TFA's release, got the sales they wanted, and have abandoned the product (more or less).  They figure they'll get some residual and piss on those who drop off.  The problem being they've also killed some gamers from trusting them again, and who won't pay $60 for something out the gate just because of the "hype".  I can believe though that they're basically already moving onto "the next thing", and will limp BF along.  Plus now they have a lot less to mess with since it's just basically throwing together some maps and skins, and calling it "content".  :(

Yeah sounds like a must have...  Wish I knew where the SA line's future lay, as I'd be buying it to do a head swap but rather than take a chance I will get this when I see it.
