Hopefully it's not hard to find. All of the RO two packs are piling up high around here.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 3 (Spoilers)

These droids along with the introduction of the K2 model droid raises huge questions. It seems counter intuitive that the Empire would use an army of anything other than droids or clones considering its enormous disregard for life and the ubiquity of these technologies. Even a conscripted army can develop minds of their own, which is what we see happen again and again. You could make a case there was a political distaste for droids or clones post CW, but it's clear Palpatine gave zero ***** about the political mood of his subjects.

I maintain the Captain will show up with Bistan in one of the two packs.

I lucked out with the Ponda Baba wave here in Iowa, finding them at a few WM's on the same day. I ended up with 3 or 4 Echo Base Troopers. Vintage wasn't great around here but it wasn't bad, and we pretty much had a shot at everything at lease once. I have never seen Shae Vizla though. I think she's the only one I don't have.

I think the choices in this group are pretty good. To me the Tusken Raider is the biggest head scratcher, but I suppose all of this is new to folks coming in to the hobby at this point. I'm hoping the Sandtrooper offers something new. If they go with the same old sculpt it's an instant pass, unless they choose to offer one of the variants from RO. There is an all white pauldron variant in the movie that I think Sideshow might be doing. There are some new backpacks too that the Jedha troops seem to have.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 2

Was happy to not have to fret about Leia either. Though Sabine being HTF was not an issue as she's still very common, along with all of wave 1. This group, we'll see how common it gets.

Found a case of these at Target tonight. Picked up everyone but Cassian, who I found in Chicago, and Vader, who I think I'm passing on. We'll see how bored I am in a few weeks. They're all great figures. Krennic and Chirrut are the standouts I think.

Hmm. Description is obviously odd, but I suppose either way you'd be making out. Yay TIE Pilots. Love this version actually.

I will riot if that's the case with Garthims as I've got the rest of them and that was the piece I've been looking forward to the most.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Walgreens Black Series 6" C-3PO
« on: November 7, 2016, 05:01 PM »
I found this last night and it's a great figure. One of my favorites in the 6 inch scale so far. Much easier for me to find than the Proto Fett or the Emperor's Wrath Vader, which I never saw in stores (I've seen it elsewhere for cost).

Wish I was going to be there for the parade. And kind of not at the same time.

Sorry to hear that Rob. I was there for games 3 4 and 5 and the police situation seemed much more relaxed in terms of posture (not numbers), at least to me, in terms of the crowd management. That being said it wasn't Game 7 or the Cubs clinching, so I can only imagine how much more intense it was. And how cool is it to live so close to the stadium?

GO CUBS GO!!!!

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Deluxe 2-Packs

If they are, it's a terrible idea. The Finn Trooper costume would be a much better choice if this is what they wanted to do. Also the case assortment - 5X this set? - is just asking for trouble.
