I'll take a set too, if they have any, Paul! Thanks!

2 for me!

Last year wasn't bad in terms of crowds but the amount of product differed from store to store, and each store got MAYBE 2 cases of everything. In addition to not taking the day off like I did last year, I'm going to remain hesitant on merchandise until after the movie comes out. This stuff should be everywhere by October anyway... hopefully.

I'll hit the LEGO Store after work on Friday to take advantage of their promotions though.

They're all from Rogue One, so OT era. I want to say C2-B5 is an important character in the movie, but I've been avoiding spoilers and am too lazy to double check.

Disney Parks Droid Factory / 2016 Disney Droid Factory Rogue One 4-Pack

As revealed on the Disney Parks Blog today, a new Droid Factory set is being released on September 30. It's a 4-pack featuring droids from the movie: C2-B5, R2-BHD, R3-M2, and R5-SK1.

IIRC, Phruby isn't able to help us out with these anymore, so I guess it's time to download the Disney Parks app or wait for someone else to make a trip to Disneyland/world. :P

Snagged the Doc Ock Mech set with Vulture and Captain Stacy yesterday at Walmart since it was randomly on Rollback at Walmart for $6 off. I have now acquired all 3 of the fall Spider-Man sets for under MSRP. I wish I could find deals like these on Star Wars sets more often!

Found these at a local HEB (grocery store) tonight. They were mixed in on the pegs with the old TFA figures. Looked to have been a fresh case... 2x Jyn, 2x K2, 2x Kylo, 2x Stormtrooper, 2x Ground Crew, 1 Kanan and 1 Sabine. I grabbed a Jyn and a K2 and that'll probably be it for me 3.75 inch wise.

So if these Walmarts are putting stuff out early, will they even have stock to put out on Friday? I can easily see people lining up only to find empty pegs, or the same TFA pegwarmers that have been there for a year. This MM is shaping up to be just as much of a disaster as last year's.

Also gives credence to the falsified backstory that Hood was a Rebel hacker and the Ice Cream Maker was actually a pod full of secret Rebel documents! Why else would Luke have it?

My store had 4 pegs labeled "Rhino Driver" last night. Of course, they were empty. Price was $19.99, so no TRU tax yet.

‘Toy Wars’ Drama From Josh Gad, Josh Schwartz & Seth Gordon Set at Amazon

Actor-writer Josh Gad (Angry Birds) is set to star and co-write, Josh Schwartz is attached to co-write and showrun and Seth Gordon is expected to direct Toy Wars, a limited drama series in development at Amazon, which follows the real-life battle between American toy giants Hasbro, the company behind GI Joe, Transformer and My Little Pony toys, and Barbie maker Mattel in the 1980s and 1990s.

Gad, Schwartz and Ryan Dixon will co-write the project based on the non-fiction book by G. Wayne Miller Toy Wars: The Epic Struggle Between G.I. Joe, Barbie, and the Companies that Make Them. Schwartz will serve as showrunner, with Gordon attached to direct the pilot, subject to availability.

Might be cool.

I hope this is as easy to find as the Snowtrooper Officer (until it vanished forever 2 months before the movie came out)

That value Falcon never even showed up here. I'm assuming these won't either.

Force Friday deals at LEGO Stores and on

- 2x VIP Points on every Star Wars purchase
- Free Darth Revan minifigure with every Star Wars purchase
- New Death Star set will be available
- Purchasing a Death Star enters you in a raffle for the May the 4th Space Slug set from earlier this year

Mine has apparently made it to my parents' place. Thanks again Paul!

Looked like the E-11 blaster had a new paintjob too? I noticed some silver on it, but it could have been the camera flash reflecting off of the plastic window. Looked good if it's new.
