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, 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. 

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.

I can only imagine how the guy on the other end of this deal is going to feel about it...  would be interesting to know how long they have had it, where/when they got it, etc.

Imagine taking care of that car for 40+ years only to have someone show up after all this time and take it from you because it was stolen 40+ yearsa ago.  :(

I was thinking the same thing.  Is the current "owner" completely hosed?  Does his insurance cover this sort of situation?

Does Paul's dad have to pay back the insurance company that paid him out 40 years ago?

Amazing story!  Let us know how it ends!

With the supposed demise of the Legends/Rebels line, do we know what is happening with the MS line, and when we will see the Vader/Asohka pack?   Have they previewed anything else in this line beyond the Hera wave?

It seems a shame if they've killed the Rebels/Legends line and they have Season 2 starting this summer.  I still think there are some great options for figures there.  I'm fine if they all come out as two packs in the MS line, but I'd like to see more Rebels content.

Finally cracked open my Imperial Troop Transport.  Overall I think its a pretty solid toy for $20.

Its solid and sturdy, so it won't break while playing with the kids.  The spring loaded missiles work just fine and figures fit in there perfectly.  Sure its a little short and figure's heads stick out over the top, but its not that bad for a toy.  At least figures can sit in the vehicle to "drive" it.  I like the internal spots for holding guns and stuff too.

My only two gripes are that I hate putting on tiny, tiny little stickers.  I wish they would either leave them out of the design, or find a way to paint them on.  And it would have been nice to have rolling wheels on the bottom.  Ultimately I understand that wheels were probably omitted to save on the cost, but it would be fun to be able to roll the vehicle across the floor.

I would definitely recommend picking up this toy if you ever come across it.  I got mine from HTS, and have never seen one in a store.
