I'm quite content with my $35 ko MP cars personally (I love kittens though)  I don't believe any other MPs are coming to TRU until next year.

AP:

3. What is the deal with these new Disney Store diecast vehicles? From the pictures I've seen online, they look quite good, particularly Slave I. Do you know what scale these are? For only $10, I can't imagine them being very large, so I'm guessing they are somewhere between Titanium and Action Fleet size? It looks like they at least have a couple moving parts, but likely no stand included. What do you know about them?

They're neat, but not perfect. For example the Landspeeder doesn't have an exposed nacelle like it should - but otherwise, is pretty great. The scale is inconsistent, each one is pretty small and pretty cheap - if you want a series of models that are in scale to one another, this ain't it. The vehicles are nicely sized for the price - they run circles around the Titanium Series Ultra vehicles Hasbro did a few years ago - with some being a little bigger, and some being a little smaller. All I can say is go check them out at the store - the look is there, and the deco is quite good on the few I've seen finalized up close.

I picked up the UCS X-Wing.  Last day of no tax on Amazon last week left me fiddly.

Wanted to pick up the mini-modulars at TRU this month but no way I'm forking over $300 just to get x4 "$20" sets for free.  I'll stick with the big ones.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Speaking of editing, I hope for VII they do away with a lot of the screen wiping effects when going from scene to scene. They're fine when used sparingly but they got a bit overwrought as the prequel progressed.

Those were some of my favorite parts of the prequels.

Ya my FB is littered with Ep7 spoilers.  I couldn't resist on clicking on a few but would prefer to come in open minded like I did with Ep1 came out.  Probably too late for that now just sayin...

I saw  it. I felt  that family  guy  carried  the Simpsons

I haven't seen it yet but I believe it was a Family Guy episode so that kinda makes sense.

Not all are as talented as this person is.  Looks really pretty though.  I will continue to ignore this thing unless I can find someone to paint it for me which will likely never happen so nothing lost.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Prototype Boba Fett (Walgreens)

I also found you get a wide range of responses when you ask them to check stock on this item via their computer. Sometimes it seems like they can't tell at all, one guys said, yeah we have them and walked me over to the 12" shampoo bottles, and no one yet has been able to figure out how to check stock at other stores electonically, although I have read they should be able to do this.

Frustrating.

A local (not on this board) was told by a manager a reset is coming next week and was invited to the back to go through 12 bins of toys.  No dice for him but thought that was neat and probably completely out of the norm for a manager to do.

I don't collect these but saw x2 vac metal erminators on the pegs on Saturday.  I believe 2 silver as well.  Looked like a single case.

I'd wait for a sale at Amazon personally but it is a nice big fat box.  :)
