I think the WalMart marketplace sellers are a bunch of bull****, too.  WalMart is trying to compete with Amazon on the online retail front.  And a big part of Amazon's business are the Amazon marketplace sellers, who are all 3rd party sellers who offer their products through Amazon.

For Amazon this format works.  Even with some of their exclusive toy offerings.  But with WalMart?  I think it crosses a line.  Especially since they have so many exclusive items.  A number of which their marketplace sellers will scoop up from WalMart stores and THEN re-sell via at inflated prices.  I've been railing against this since I saw some WalMart marketplace sellers offering the *supposedly WalMart exclusive* and current 3.75" Black Series figures at double and triple retail price.

I had no idea that he had been banned from the official convention circuit.  But then appearing in "The people vs George Lucas" was a bit of a case of biting the hand that feeds you.

I recently heard that due to some health issues that Dave Prowse won't be making any convention appearances outside of the UK.  It's unfortunate to hear that.  I've met him on at least a few occasions and he was a very nice guy.

I finally found a 3.75" Black Series Deathtrooper today.  A very refreshing turn of events, since they've been so scarce compared to the Jyn Erso from this wave.  I think the one that I got was stashed, but got discovered and placed back on the pegs.  Because when I got it there were no Jyn's or ERG's to be found.

The YT-2400 freighter is a nice nod to the old EU... as long as they keep Dash Rendar out of the mix.  That character was very much a product of his times, and not very interesting.

Sideshow's giveaways are pretty awesome.  And very often they have Star Wars items offered in their giveaways.

Hmmm.  I wonder if Emilia Clarke's character might have something to do with this line from TESB:

HAN: (to Chewie) Well, that was a long time ago. I'm sure he's forgotten about that.

Picked up Krennic, the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader and TFA C-3PO today at the one Target I checked.  And oddly enough, I found some 6" Black Series First Order Stormtroopers and even an Atsy today while I was searching for the Walgreens C-3PO.  No luck with Threepio yet!

WOW!  That shot of the Death Star eclipsing the star as it orbits Jedha?  And then to see it fire on the planet from that perspective?!?!?!  OMG!!!

I've got a theory about that orbital dock that appears to be at Scarif, but I don't know if I should get into it just yet.

if u check brickseek, you'll see prices are all over the place.  my 2 closest stores are different prices.  typical walmart.

It really makes you wonder how WalMart is one of the most profitable companies in the world.
