Hags was eating it in Anaheim and Daley in Chicago, Schultz in Edmonton...  They were perfect fits once Sullivan established a real plan for the Pens.  It's been a fun and fast transition to watch here.  He'll they're scratching Schultz and only because of space.  He'd slot right in if needs be.  Was a force down the stretch. 

Hell, even Kwssel was a throw away from Toronto though he cost us.  But hey, he's been doing it once the team found its new identity.  He fits that.  He's been a PP goal machine and what Toronto folk were all saying he couldn't do because he's fat and lazy.  Didn't look it to me.  :)

We got Haggelin from Anaheim for a half eaten Cheeseburger and a widget.  We got Trevor Daley from Chicago for even less, Rob Scuderi.

Yeah, but he only wears it for a small part of things.  It's just a very updatable figure to me.  I'd have taken new and semi-new Cantina and Hoth Hans too, respecticely.

I'm pretty ok with Carbo and Bespin.  Endor is just the one that stands out as fairly bad now.  Not counting TFA 5POA which obviously I'd love a SA version.

The horrendous barrel chest that was completely unnecessary, the headsculpt doesn't look quite right (such is Hans life as a figure often), the floating holster...  Even the blaster has been done better. 

"So what happened next?"

"He took us in the house, and served us pancakes."

But to that point, OTC Leia was a hold-over (supposedly the softgoods had issues I'd heard/read somewhere) and the rest were repacks...   :-\

Not real hopeful personally, at least till the Han movie rolls out anyway. 

I so wanted a new Endor Han...  I wanted a new Carbo Han and that snuck in under the wire, but man, Endor Han just blows. 

I wanted a nice brown coat variant of Hoth Han too, for actually riding the Taun-Taun they made with a friggin' blue coat.  ::)

Yeah the odds don't seem in your favor there Jeff, but hey who knows what turn the line overall may take? 

While Han is an icon though, I'm not sure I'd compare him with Fett.  I want a new Endor Han badly but does the world?  At the same time Boba basically is in the same outfit and people will rebuy him over and over.  He appeals to kids now as much as ever...  He is just riding that "he looks cool" factor.  Do today's new fans want new Hans though?  I dunno.  I know OT Boba wasn't in any of the PT films but my kids at the time wanted a Boba figure pretty badly.

Charlie Murphy's story about him still cracks me up and it seemed to highlight his personality. 

"Game...  Blouses."

Listening to Bat Dance now.

I didn't recall a gunshot...  but then again my ability to actively pay attention to this like I do TWD is like night and day, and I'm sure I drift in and out of consciousness during FTWD frequently.

Kmart here loaded up on Unkar Butt wave today.  Weird as teyre loaded with old stuff.

I'm gonna maybe do some EE ordering I think.

Kmart Rey has hit here...  Lots of Kylo as well but that's old hat.

The sculpts are really shockingly well done IMO.  I'm not a 5POA guy, and that's been my main deterrent on the 5POA stuff (all over the place).  These really have me though.

BTW, might I note that The Wall is marked a "Display", not a playset...  Much like people who pine away for "playsets" in Star Wars actually want displays.  This is MUCH more what they're thinking about, comparatively speaking.  A hallway is not a playset, it's just something that amounts to a glorified stand.  This is really ideally collector-targeted stuff, and the price on the wall isn't even bad at all.  $30 is quite palatable for a nice display for Wave 1.  It'll be simple I feel sure, but it's still cool as hell.

I want that Tyrion too.  Easily it's my first purchase from the line.

An awesome price really.  Plus better sculpts and articulation?  I do believe I am in on these.

It'll come down to the removable helmet for many, but honestly I foresee someone casting that Hasbro head, possibly with a peg for the FA figure, in the near future.  Be a wise move on someone who does a casting business on the side anyway.

I'd like to point out my balls predicted a mask less Kylo, and we got it.  Also a Rey too.  And my balls also called another BB8 which was the one in the multipack. 

I told you guys to trust in them.
