I was thinking about how the 501st clones said they were "de-commissioned".

I haven't kept up with all the comics and books, but has it been explained how/why the clones got de-commissioned and Stormtroopers became regularly recruited/conscripted people?

Don't get me wrong about Rebels - I love the show and love the fact that there is Star Wars stuff that I can watch with my 5-8 year old kids. 

I still won't let them watch most episodes of TCW.

I loved last season and thought the Vader episode to start the season was awesome.  I just thought this week's show was kind of weak and the worm fishing story line was a waste of time.

Hated the whole fishing story line.  It seemed like it consumed half the show and was pointless.  My only hope is that somehow there is payoff later with Zeb stirring up some giant worms that take out the AT-ATs.  But that would seem a little annoying as Rex and team took the worm down with one shot.

I'm fine if its not all action, but there needs to be some character development, etc. thrown in and not just a weak subplot about giant worms.  I would have loved to see more internal conflict/discussion between the clones and Kanan reconciling their past.

The rebellion is growing, and the stakes are higher.

Looks like they took down whatever you were linking to...   :'(

*edit* - Google helped me find it

Can't wait for Rebels to start back up!

Since the 6" figures feel a little less like toys and a little more like display pieces, I would be in favor of "environments" more than vehicles.  Seeing the 6" scale TIE Fighter reinforces my belief that these are going to be really hard to interact with as toys, and potentially really hard to display.

The only vehicle that I would love to see in this scale is a landspeeder, but if they do that they've got to make a C-3PO.

My quick thoughts on "environments":
  • Jabba's Sail Barge (or palace) - would be great to have somewhere to display a bunch of the figures we have that fit this scene
  • Death Star - maybe around the detention center, but you'll need to make a "Death Squad Commander"
  • Hoth Base - I need a place for my Tuantaun and Wampa
  • Mos Eisley Cantina - I would love to see a whole wave of cantina patrons (Hammerhead please) to go along with the release of this set

It would be cool if they made these environments with a pack in figure that we wouldn't normally see - e.g. Yakface with a Jabba's Sail Barge.

Thanks for posting.  I really like the comparison shot with the 3 3/4" ship to see just how big it is.

I'm still really torn on this item.  I like the concept of big ships, but this seems too big to manage without hanging it from the ceiling someplace.   

I think I would have much preferred to see a Landspeeder in this scale first.

Kudos to Hasbro, but I'm still in a wait and see mode with this one.

I want to get a handful of these for my kids for Halloween.  I tried doing the bag feel thing at Target the other day, but failed in my attempt at identifying certain figures.

Does anyone know the best (cheapest) way to get certain ones out of this set?  I'm fine buying opened figures. 

I looked on eBay and the prices seemed crazy high.

I'm not getting too worked up about this.

Can anyone remember a TRU exclusive that wasn't easy to get?  Maybe this one will be a little bit harder as its actually priced at a sensible price.

I'm guessing these will be warming the pegs this time next year...

I haven't had the chance to do a comparison yet, but is there generally a difference between the standard figures and the armor up versions, other than the pack-in?  I'm still trying to figure out if I need any of these.

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.
