They don't have Mission Series, $10 3 3/4", or Legends listed.  But they do have a replacement 6" figure DCPI at the same price point. 

Maybe this listing is just the new DPCIs and they'll keep the existing DCPIs 3 3/4" DCPIs active.

Was travelling to a small South Carolina town (40,000 people) that surprisingly had a TRU.  I had the opposite experience of seeing a weird double aisle with Star Wars items on both sides.  Probably twice the content I've seen elsewhere and mostly allotted to Hasbro items.  Although they still didn't have anything I was looking for...

Maybe "Rogue One" refers to a rogue Jedi - e.g. Ashoka or Ventress.

Anybody know what the story line is with the Wookiee Gunship (as produced by Lego) for Rebels?   Was this a story line that was cut from Season 1, or will be shown for Season 2?

My kids really like the ship, but keep asking me what the story is with this ship.

Why do we think anyone knows?  Obi-Wan can probably sense it and maybe Yoda, but they're supposedly living out a very exiled existence out of contact from anyone else.  The Emperor used droids to build the Vader armor, so how would anyone make the link back to Anakin? 

I agree.  Outside of Obi-Wan and Yoda, I don't think anyone necessarily knows who Darth Vader is.  And unless they told Bail and the droids (why would they?), then I don't think anyone else knows.

Granted, I haven't read many of the EU books, so there might be something else I'm missing.

Ultimately I don't think it matters to 99.99% of the characters as all they need to know is that The Emperor has a new bad-ass enforcer.  Nobody really needs to know where he came from and what his pod-race records are.

I think Ashoka is about the only main character that has any real ties to Anakin.  So if there is a reveal of Vader's origins, I don't think it would really matter to anyone but her.

So what is meaningfully new in this wave?

Bah!  I knew I should have watched the episode live last night.

I did a good job of avoiding the Star Wars sites today, but then got an e-mail from Her Universe with the subject of "AHSOKA LIVES!"

I'm going to have to go full Amish next time.

Is it wrong that I'm 1000% more interested in the Rebels/Legends and Mission Series line than TBS?

I love the articulation and detail of the TBS.  But the price and lack of anything really "new" bores me.

I wish they hit more obscure or EU characters in this line.

Has there been any talk of Target getting a vehicle assortment that includes the troop transport, or a transport with a pack-in figure?

Still though, I'm drawn to the idea (and hoping it's true) that Fulcrum is Ahsoka.  This may end up being red herrings from Filoni...

You would hope that if there were a Jedi (Ahsoka) so closely linked to The Ghost crew that Ahsoka would have pulled Kanan and Ezra aside and tried to train them.

I'm surprised Fulcrum is even a person.  I thought it was just going to be a "contact" that Hera hadn't actually ever talked to in person or holographically. 

I thought it would just be a plot device and all the discussion on who it was would be wasted.

I'm still hoping its just a plot device and not tied to anyone we know in the Star Wars universe.  I don't like how everything has to be magically linked somehow.

The Star Wars universe has to have a population of quadrillions of sentient beings, but it seems like everyone is somehow tied together through only a couple of degrees of separation, without Kevin Bacon being involved.

IG-88 will be the highlight of this wave for me.

So far the waves and figure selection has been pretty solid.  I think this is the least interesting wave so far.  The Emperor and another in the rainbow of clone troopers do not interest me.

Luke Stormtrooper looks sweet though.

Better they do a $30 accessory then have D-bags steal the dish out of a new Falcon and return it with a round one, or nothing.  Although if they are D-bags they'll probably do it anyhow.

They need to do a mail-away (or Kickstarter) that will allow you to swap out your round dish for a rectangular dish.
