TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels "Spark of Rebellion"
« on: October 6, 2014, 11:21 AM »
Watched this with the kids over the weekend. 

I thought the story, pacing, etc. was great.   The kids all loved it too, and I'm glad its kid oriented.

I really dug the music cues that they "borrowed" from ANH.  Mostly as Ezra was discovering his force abilities.

Agree that the animation isn't as cool as the prior two Star Wars cartoons, but I'm more in to the story and characters than the artwork.

I started playing a few weeks ago.  I hope they improve this soon as its far inferior to Clash of Clans.

Anybody have any idea when the Rebels figures are supposed to start hitting?  It seems a shame that there are no figures (other than the TRU pack) available with the release of this cartoon series.

The kids and I watched the show over the weekend and they loved it.  Too bad I can't easily buy them any toys associated with this.

The only thing that I remember having major spoilers was the CD soundtrack with the track names (Qui-Gon's Funeral) that was released early.

My kids are now 7, 4, and 4 and I'm hoping to get them a little hooked on Star Wars though the new Rebels series.  Clone Wars was way too dark for them so I didn't let them watch it.

I expect to buy all the toys, bust them open, and see if the kids start digging Star Wars. 

I've got hundreds (who are we kidding? thousands) of OT/PT figures and ships in my basement waiting to be opened and played with.  I think my wife will think I'm loony if I I'm playing with toys without the kids...  ::)

LEGO / Lego becomes world's biggest toymaker

According to CNN

Lego sales grew at 11% for the first six months of this year surpassing Mattel and leaving Hasbro in its dust (now 30% larger than Hasbro).

Back to the topic of price hikes, I'm seeing lots of Twitter/Facebook reports of Target stores raising prices on the 3.75" stuff...

Maybe its to account for the extra labor they have in their distribution system now that they're splitting cases between multiple stores  ::)

I've seen a local Target restock these at least once since their reset.

Anyone else having trouble getting your Jabba delivered?

Fedex is requiring an in-person signature, and won't let me sign the door tag and leave it for tomorrow.

The pick-up location is about an hour away from my house on the south side, and rerouting it to my office is going to delay by 24 to 48 hours.

All because freaking HasBLOW seemingly is requiring me to physically be there to sign for it.

Glad my wife was home today to get my SDCC Jabba. 

Seems completely unnecessary to have to sign for a $60 item.

I'll be interested to see if the new figures, Clone Trooper and Anakin, end up being the pegwarmers in this bunch with the Stormtrooper and Boba selling through faster.

Saw the Battle of Endor set at $99 at TRU. What an insulting joke that is! I don't see how this is worth the price. The presentation sucks. The figures are just lined up in no action display and the ATST has half its parts missing. They should have included the bunker at that price. Between Hasbro's and ebay's prices this hobby has hit rock bottom. Hasbro isn't even trying on this one.

I don't know if I would solely blame Hasbro for the price.  TRU is pretty good at marking things up unnecessarily high on their own.

I know 95% of us wouldn't really be interested at any price, but its hard to see your average soccer mom springing for this unless it gets down towards $65 or lower.

I heard that your clan isn't visible if it is currently participating in a clan war. 

Wow.  Still up after 30 minutes.  Didn't Boba Fett last something like 90 seconds last year?

One of the local targets where I saw them doing a reset required a whole crew of laborers.  They were disassembling and rebuilding end caps with shelves.  Not just placing new things on shelves.

These are available to order on right now as well.
