Dropping these in here in case they go in stock sometime... (we all know how likely that is, right? :P)

- Ackbar
- Ahsoka
- General Lando
- Royal Guard

I know this was originally promised a year ago when this line came out, but have any of the waves ever been available online?

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set
« on: October 2, 2016, 11:27 AM »
Anyone seen an unboxing / demo of this to know if you can steer the AT-ACT?  Just curious if you can get it to turn large circles, or if the control is really just forward and shoot.

These are now listed in the parks app but currently out of stock.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases

I'm guessing its part of their excellent management training.  When someone asks you why they can't buy something just say, "it was recalled".  You don't need to know the real reason, just vomit up this line, take the item, and walk away.

I'm glad in Minneapolis we've got 197 Target stores and only a handful of Wal-Marts.  If WM was my only decent retail option I think I would drive my car in to a bridge abutment.

It'd be great to see an Indy live action or animated series.

Remind me again, does Disney have any ownership of Indy?  Hopefully Disney does and they can fund this like they've funded Star Wars.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Deluxe 2-Packs
« on: September 30, 2016, 12:06 PM »
Anybody know if the Deathtrooper in the two pack is any different than the Deathtrooper that is carded on its own?

I don't think we've seen a basic 3.75" version picture yet... one is rumored to be coming, but no pics yet makes it hard to tell if/how different it is. ;)

Holy crap am I an idiot (hold your comments please)!!  I had written down that there was a single carded 3.75" Deathtrooper.  Apparently there isn't one.  No wonder I can't find one at any Target.  ::)

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Target Exclusive Rogue One 3-pk

My thoughts exactly. 

Any idea on how these compare to the regular 6" figures?

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One "FORCE FRIDAY" Official Thread...
« on: September 30, 2016, 10:31 AM »
Planning to head out to some Targets soon. Fingers crossed for that %^&*( speeder.
I don't think you need to be concerned about the speeder.  A bunch of those were left from MM at our TRU.  I suspect it's going to be an easy find.

Based on EE's case listing, looks like the case is 2x Imp Speeder, 1sx Ezra, 1x TFA Walker so hopefully that makes it a bit easier to track down...

Are these using the same DCPI that existed for TFA Class 1 vehicles?  Stopped at two Targets this morning and both had the Class 1 pegs jammed with TFA crap.  No sign of the Class 2 vehicle assortment at Target either.

Nothing on the app as of this morning.

Paul - if you have any extras I'll take one.

I do expect more than a few "ripples in the Force" coming up too. Targets around here have showed zero signs of prepping so far, and I find it a little hard to believe they will all magically have their aisles reset by 8am tomorrow when the doors open with all the new stuff on display. Just like I find it hard to believe that at 12:01am every Walmart computer will update instantly to allow the proper ring-up, pricing and sale of the new stuff. I foresee many possible checkout line frustrations...

Does anyone know Target's plan?  Are they just going to put these on pegs in the normal aisle, or will they drop these on standees like they did for the refresh when the movie was released in April?  Last year my local Targets had stuff in both the toy aisle and in a "seasonal" aisle in the back dedicated to TFA product (clothing, toys, cereal, etc.).

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1

While I'm never gonna try to "beat" the system and scan and alternate item...

I've done this several times before with decent success, especially at a place like Wal-Mart where the general staff IQ seems lower.  Assuming they've got some TFA figures still on the pegs I would grab one TFA figure and all the Rogue One figures I wanted.  I would make sure they scanned the TFA figure first and when the error pops up on the Rogue One figures I would just say there were all on the same peg or were right next to them listed at the same price.  The checkout person has always just modified the quantity of the TFA figure scanned and shoved all the Rogue One figures in the bag.  Then later you can bring back the one TFA figure you don't need.

Either way, I'm going to avoid WM until Friday so I don't get frustrated by the stupidity.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NFL 2016-17

I know this happened a couple weeks ago during the Rams/49ers awful MNF game, but they keep playing it on the local sports radio station and it makes me laugh each time - The guy is drunk!

The Force Awakens / Re: The Force Awakens 3.75" 'Armor Up' Assortment
« on: September 24, 2016, 07:42 PM »
I just cracked open the last of my TFA figures today and had a few questions / observations.

1 - are most of the armor up figures near direct copies of the regular figures?  It appears the only ones that are different are Poe and Chewie.  Am I missing anything significant.

2 - I was surprised at the gaps in the overall figure line.  No regular Chewie, R2-D2, Poe resistance outfit, and Poe pilot without helmet.  I'm probably missing a few, but this ones popped out at me.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILER FREE)

Can someone verify the first day we'll be able to see the movie in the US? 

The release date is Friday, December 16th. 

Am I right in assuming that we'll actually be able to see this the day before on Thursday, December 15th starting at roughly 7PM?  And tickets will likely go on sale on roughly October 16th?
