Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Class II Vehicle Sets
« on: January 20, 2017, 07:38 PM »
The Imperial set has been $15 here in Iowa. Tons of them at Wally.

I found a couple at Kroger tonight on clearance for $12.49.  :)

Walmart also had a bunch in their clearance section but they were still full price. Waiting game has begun...

I did find a couple of Ezra and speeder bike sets marked down to $4.50 at a different Wally. Grabbed those up right away.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors
« on: January 18, 2017, 02:24 PM »
There is also a rumor of a 6 inch Early Bird Set to commemorate the 40th Anniversary.

This seems a little odd.  We've essentially got all of these figures already (R2, Luke, Leia, Chewie). 

I personally am not interested in slight variations or a packaging variant for these figures.

I would rather see them do something different if they wanted to do a 40th Anniversary set.  Lots of great characters left to do from ANH in the 6" line.  No need to rehash.

100% AGREE!

Please spare us some half assed exclusive like that TRU "Cantina Showdown" garbage. We already had those characters too. There's like 800 different great options for new characters in this scale, we don't need repacks, retools, tweaks or similar nonsense. Not at this stage.

And Krennic is just a stupid carryover. That should have been Vader's spot.

Forgot about Mega Man, but they have been teasing the Hellboy figures on Instagram recently. Iffy on those. Curious to see what else they have on tap for 2017.

Loaded up on some cheap A-wings tonight...$15 is too good to pass up. Added three more to the fleet, maybe more to come. Also grabbed an Ezra with speeder bike for $9 for good measure.

If that imperial speeder bike set ever hits clearance, look out!

I love Woody Harrelson but I don't think he's a good fit for a SW movie. ive got a bad feeling about this film.  :D

How didn't I know about this until last night?!

Oh man, I just heard about these too! Pretty sure I will be going all in on this line, although I expect it will be short. I loved their ReAnimator figure from last year. It's one of my favorites.

I guess the ET ReAction stuff is available now too, on another note.

I'm instantly out at that price, as I expect a lot of folks will be. I understand the collector logic to rationalize the value, it just doesn't work for me at that $ threshold sadly. Sure does look like a fine effort though.  :(

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set
« on: January 4, 2017, 04:41 PM »
GameStop had it too, both in store and online. Not sure if it's hit clearance there yet but the TIE Striker and U-Wing both have so it's only a matter of time I'm sure.

I just checked Brickpicker and my closest Target has two at the 89.98 price. Have to admit it's tempting me.

I finally picked up another A-Wing to open and man, it is small! Easier to squeeze into an existing display, but a bit disappointing. Glad I only paid $21 for this one, Walmart already had them on clearance at my local store.

I do love this Hera figure though. Much better than the first one.

Three variants now for this wave, you're killing me, Hasbro!

1) AT-AT Driver/Pilot
2) Sabine holster peg/no holster peg
3) Snowtrooper Glossy finish/Matte finish

I had to hold a pair of Snowtroopers side by side to notice that last one, but it is legit. (Credit to RS on this one) one has a much duller, less glossy finish and slightly different paint apps on the Kama and boots. Glad to have one of each, by pure luck apparently.

Still need a Sabine with holster peg though.

Did that guy even have any lines? What a random choice.

Glad to see Fenn Rau back in the mix. Curious what Rebels we will be getting after that.

Jesus, the last two months have just been one soul-shattering gut punch after another. This year sucked.  :(

She was the goods. Super sad she is gone. Hope they can find a way to navigate her loss gracefully in the new movies.
