At least you can look and see you're not being ripped off.  Those Kmart exclusive 2-packs were a disaster waiting to happen.  Fortunately there didn't seem to be a lot of thefts with thwm.  I never got one (of many of all of them) that was tampered with.

I'm not a fan of the boxed stuff though.  In general it's my undersrandinf it's more costly and simpler packaging using blister cards are less $.

Anyway glad to get some stuff I actually DID want.  My  had to go through 3-4 cases of wv2 rhis weekend.  That's a lot in a couple days!

I had $ at TRU expiring so I stopped by today and they put out a new case of 2-packs so I got bb8 set for $2 and change. :)  Been a busy weekend.

Saw tons of wave 2 at both my Wally's and grabbed a few of them.  Hux is the least fixable and Guavian guy is surprisingly neat to me.  He wasn't on my radar but glad I bought him.  Little alien and blue droid are fun filler.  General Huxtable I'm going to attempt to make him more fun but the legs are a lost cause.

I missed those mock ups.

I was thinking same thing that one of those females will get done for similar reason.   :-X

I will vote Fuzzhead Joe all the way!

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: New York Comic-Con 2015

Collector event so collector figs...  Make no mistake I don't think Hasbro is under some misconception they'll make most collectors enjoy 5poa.  They're kid targeted toys and if collectors like them too at all it's just bonus sales.  Collectors get 6" and exclusives and can support those or get less as time goes on.

I'm kind of shocked they would devote as much as they have to the older collector, like the 6" TIE.

That's fine by me.  TFA kind of is important and means all new stuff.  Anything OT or PT would be wildly obscure or a resculpt...  While I want lots of that, given the timing and need for "newness" to push it, I'm ok with TFA being a focus.  If some of the repacks are nice that's just gravy.  Luke was the only one i liked in the initial wave but chewbacca makes sense.  That Vader...  Eh whatevs.  Can't all win.  Kicking off with ALL repacks is what stinks to me.  :-\  But they've sold well here soooo...

Enjoyed the trailer a lot. Hoping it's no always a TCW cameo of the week thing as that's a rut they could get in easily but some look like fun (Clones). 

I like the concept of hunting out force sensitive kids.  That's from way back in EU so it's neat to see them carry that on.  I'd like to see a little more EU mixed into this series.  They're doing a little bit like the proto AWings and such, but I wouldn't mind seeing some more.

Again I hope they don't get too caught up in TCW ties.  Hondo's cameo was a tad meh.

B-Wing a tad early but again a prototype so who knows.  And still Ackbar-centered which is awesome to see them keep that.  Also think I saw the McQuarrie concept sentient plant in there?  Was to be in the cantina.  Even got back story in west end games, and a miniature figure. :)

I got it day 1 and was content.  Scale looks right.  It's not hyper detailed deco-wise but that's a sign of the times.  I wish the junk wasn't sculpted to the side as I had hoped to do a cloth net and removable junk on it (and a new deco) but it just means extra work now if I do it. 

The figure is quite nicely painted and sculpted.  The articulation is really sad given how nice a figure it is otherwise.  Knees elbows n wrists would've made this a great figure IMO.  As she stands now, she's an ok placeholder.

I like the Snowspeeder personally...  Again deco is plain but sculpt wise it's quite nice.  Possibly even oversized but tough to tell without footage to compare.  Miles superior to the shoddy Rebels vehicles though.  Color me impressed.

That 4th guy looks like a classic Fuzzhead Joe.  I'd want that.

Technically all Joes are "fan fic" from Hasbro. ;)

Other Toy Lines / Re: Acid Rain - by Ori Toy

Bought another Quad Eyes, giving me 3 of them...  This was a partial gift from someone to me. 

I got the Sand Deco which I got at TheToySource since nobody had the sand deco in stock and the prices were good.  The sand is quite different actually and seems a little more "Rebellion" to me.  Like what these look like off the assembly line.

It also didn't have the nudie girl poster in the cockpit, but came with 5 loose anti-war posters mixed in on "worn" paper.

Also this had the extra plastic tracks packed into the box, a change from the original shipment of these.

Anyway, fun to have a new Acid Rain toy to play with. :)  Keeping me busy.

In other news I can only imagine the Laurel Worker variant is going to ship before long because the line's creator keeps posting images of the Worker on Instagram here and there.  Hope it's coming soon!

Easy enough not to but them.  There will inevitably be one everyone wants though.  >:(

I wore my "Dr Hook" McCracken tshirt all day in honor of the Hockeyville game.  Was fun!

Well you're managing 2 languages well.  I do one poorly.

That would be "Si!" :)

9 weeks of Spanish and I basically could count to 10 and ask for water with lemon.  :-[

My biggest question about Tenso I guess, is do they let you pile up stuff and ship at once, ala the Private Warehouse on HLJ?  I was hoping for that, however I couldn't seem to find anything definitive on that question.

I just know, especially after Jeff's links, that I have to find a way to order this stuff for reasonable prices haha.

Read the Fett reviews that are popping up too, and sooooooo glad I got off the pot on that.  Wish I'd gotten two really.  What an awesome looking figure.  Gonna be a bit of a b to paint, but that's fine.
