WM sucks.  I really hope it is true that you can order these online because the local stores are wastelands.  I'd rather see this as a K-Mart exclusive over a WM exclusive...

Disconcerting thing was that in at least two Target Stores that I hit between 8:00 and 8:30am - stores that were not open the previous evening - things looked very picked over right at the offset.  Not sure if employees got first grabs, but it almost looks like they did :-\

I've only stopped at two Targets and a WM today.  Both Targets appear to only have stocked one case of each assortment.  WM did a pre-packed pallet drop that seemed to be about two cases of the basic figures and one of the armored up stuff.

For those three stores, if you weren't the first one there, then I'm sure it looked picked over if a collector got there first.  I know there was one Target employee buying stuff at 8AM with me at one of the stores.

Haven't stopped at a TRU yet.

Has anyone found the Mission Series figures?  My Target didn't have pegs for them (and didn't have the figures either)?

I honestly don't have room for a second BMF, so kind of happy to not have the choice.   ;)

Glad to see something new done in this area.

All of the Targets near me have completely clearanced out Star Wars... It's all gone, no SW section at all.

Did they clearance it out, or disappear it?

Some of the Targets around me have removed their Star Wars section, but I never saw much of it go through the discount steps.  I think most of it just got removed.

I hope most of it doesn't make its way back on to shelves come 9/4.

Read the article on the link posted by Nicklab.  Interesting to see they might be trying to re-use sets from the movies.

It would be cool to get little mini-series of background stories or further adventures around some of the key characters - e.g Flynn, Rey, Poe, Kylo Ren, etc.

I'm not an action figure expert, but are there examples of well done die cast figures out there to know what might even be possible?

This just doesn't sound interesting to me...

I personally think the build-a-weapon thing is cool and am looking forward to it.  If Hasbro executes this like the did with build-a-droid I'm all for it.  They did a good job of having the assortments be all new figures so you didn't have to buy a repack just to get the one droid piece you needed.

I'm glad they're looking at a new spin on an old concept as well.  I would like BAD again, but we've had that a bunch of times and BAW sounds cool, at least for a limited time.

On the $15 premium line - I really hope they don't add extra "crap" just to justify the cost.  I really don't like clamshells being included.  I would dig extra accessories if that gets them to the right price point / value, but a clamshell is just a waste of my money.

Dave, I will take that 3PO - a buddy of mine is looking for one...

Sure.  I'll bring it to the meeting tomorrow night.

Got some extras from ordering cases.

3 3/4" C-3PO $12 + shipping
6" Cody and Han Stormtrooper - $18 each + shipping

PM if you're interested, otherwise I'll just put them on eBay.

Justin - I've got one of those cards in my collection from when I was a kid.  Never realized it until the 90s when I read an article on it and looked through my pile. 

Apparently they corrected the card, but the corrected version is quite a bit more rare than the excited version.

That is wrong though...everything will be revealed through leaks in the next few weeks...everything which is even more baffling about this to me

I would hope that Hasbro/Disney is aware of the leaks that are likely to happen.   I assume if they wanted to control the message they would have revealed stuff at SDCC.

I'm guessing its all driven by Disney's desire not to over promote the film at this point.  Which I'm 100% behind.  I would be fine with them not releasing any toys until Dec.

I know people want to be able to budget for their purchases, and I get that concern, but I'm guessing that is pretty far down Disney/Hasbro's list of issues.  I can't imagine anything is going to be hard to find and should linger for months, so hopefully everyone has the budget flexibility to fill their collections throughout the fall.

I've been itching to buy the teaser poster for TFA as well, but that isn't available for purchase, and is fairly lame in comparison to all the other teaser posters.  I wonder if this is all part of Disney's plan to keep things on simmer for as long as possible.

Alright, anyone seriously considering plunking down $185 or so with tax for this?! 

I don't even know where I'd be able to put it if I did think the price was reasonable...

I'd drop the cash in a heartbeat.  Although I have your same concern.  Where the heck would I put this?

As a result, I'm really unsure if I'm going to get this thing.

I'd much rather have a landspeeder than one of these, just because of the massive size.

Since they're doing half of The Ghost crew, I really hope they do them all before too long.  Finish them up with a Target exclusive pack at Christmas if necessary.

I would prefer there is no Obi-Wan / Vader confrontation.

I like the fact that he has been hiding under the radar protecting Luke (and Leia?).  And when they run in to each other at the Death Star its the first time they've actually encountered each other since Mustafar.

He would only come out of hiding for important issues.  Maybe if Luke/Leia are in danger.  Maybe he could develop a way to hide his presence from Vader/Emperor and while going on covert rebel missions slip out unseen just as Vader arrives.
