Just got my case from HTS.  Along with the Hoth 6" figures.

All were awesome, except my Leia Boushh.  Holy cow is the paint job on mine terrible.  It looks like the paint job on the 3 3/4" figures.  Crossed eyes.  One high.  One low.  Ugh.

I just hope I eventually find this at retail, with a good paint job, that will allow me to exchange.

Picked up the Imperial Assault Carrier, but won't put it together until this weekend with the kids.

I agree, it looks really cool and is something that Hasbro isn't likely to ever get near.  It'll work great next to The Ghost, another ship Hasbro probably won't ever touch.

Interesting conversation and analysis.  I took a very different approach on my list and I'm glad Sabine is an option.  In some ways it will be curious to see if the Fanboy/Fangirl divide is that pronounced.  Sabine definitely has some momentum as she has gained six percent in less than 24 hours.  My guess is that she is the only one that can knock off Revan at this point.  Since the 3.75 figure left people wondering about the non removable helmet, I am down for her to get the 6 inch treatment, 

Is there a noticeable campaign for her now?

I saw Dave Filoni tweet his support for Sabine.  Not a surprise there though.

They showed The Force Awakens teaser poster at Star Wars Celebration.  Anybody know if this is available to buy yet, and where?

I always used to buy my posters at ShopStarWars.com, but have no idea where to go for something like this.

Dave I just discovered that there is a way to get one through Disney Movies Anywhere

So I've got to buy five Disney movies to get this?  Probably not a horrible deal.

Has anyone heard if this is actually going to be for sale? 

I'm still not convinced I need to have this poster, even though I purchased all the teaser and theatrical posters from the prequels.  This one just isn't that exciting.

Picked up the new 2015 sets this week:
Naboo Starfighter
Flash Speeder
Imperial Shuttle Tydirium
Death Star Final Duel
Imperial Assault Carrier

Great collection of sets, the only one I haven't put together yet is the Naboo Fighter. I'm not sure when it comes out but the new Sith Infiltrator looks interesting, not quite sure how it differs from the one we got just a few years ago though.

I'm really looking forward to the Force Awakens sets... I guess they're only 2 months away at this point...

I still need convincing that the first four offer enough "newness" to them over the previous issues of these sets.  Has anyone seen, or done a comparison of old vs. new.  I'd be interested in your thoughts Pete if you have them both handy.

Hasbro isn't bound to make the top vote getter, are they?  In the past haven't they just used this as a form of input, and then selected the one they wanted off the list?

e.g. they could select the Gamorrean Guard and say he was a top request from fans?

I agree that Darth Revan wouldn't be in my top 100.  I'll take nearly any OT character over a PT or EU character any day. Although  I've got a soft spot for Star Wars Rebels, so I'd be pretty pumped about a Sabine figure.

Not a huge sale, but HTS has a 4-pack of Emporer Palpatine, Han & Luke in Stormtrooper armor and the Clone Trooper Captain in phase 1 armor for $71.99.  And at that price your order qualifies for free shipping.  Not a terrible deal by any stretch.

Agreed.  After many empty stops at Target I just pulled the trigger on this. 

I may have an extra Han Trooper now, but $71.99 for three figures is still probably a decent deal when you consider all the wasted toy runs.

It'd be nice if they showed non-spoiler examples from each line.  e.g. here is a $7 Poe in 5POA, and here is a $13 Han in 14 POA.

Are these the five sets that just got released, or are there more?

75016 - Imperial Assault Carrier
75094 - Imperial Shuttle Tydirium
75093 - Death Star Final Duel
75092 - Naboo Starfighter
75091 - Flash Speeder

Also, has anyone seen reviews of these?  The last four have already been done before and I'm curious if anyone thinks they're interesting enough to rebuy.

I love how Target lists this item.  Can't order it online.  It doesn't exist in a store.  If you use the store pickup option the DPCI # is the same as Jabba and Scout Trooper, so you'll just get a Jabba when you show up.

Only Dorkside and maybe one other place has put them up yet...  Patience on it Dave, I think it'll be soon on the other places like EE and BBTS.  I'm waiting (hoping) for singles to go up soon as I'd like to just pick up what I want, and leave it at that.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned these figures will never hit retail, and will have very little availability via e-tailers.  It seems the last wave of a line is always hard to come by, and with the way Hasbro has been managing their assortments / production numbers I'm not sure what to expect here.

I never really found the last waves of Rebels at retail, and most were only available on HTS for a very brief window. 

28
Has EE offered this wave yet?  I couldn't find it on their site.  Or is it sold out and removed already?

Should (re)launch on many sites on Sunday/Monday

Still haven't seen this pop-up at EE.  Has anyone managed to pre-order this at other sites?

We've got an original hand me down Wii that needs to be replaced with something better.  Now I have an excuse.

Any thoughts on the best system to get for kids currently aged 5-8 that will work with this?

We've got a pile of Wii games, but if WiiU stinks, I'm open to making a change.
