The Hawks took it up the poop shoot today, so I guess Yeo's system blew.  :-X

To be fair, Luke had like 4 years of using a saber under his belt too and Vader isn't Anakin in terms of physical ability.  That said I think all the point about Kylo being shot, inexperienced, etc., are all fair.  Finn supposedly had training in melee combat, and on another viewing he's not "great" with a saber too.  He's slow, unsure, and losing to Tr8r trooper even...  It seems to fit more to me after a 2nd watch though. 

Hmm I haven't gotten any from yet but should get a handful Wednesday so Ill look them over.

I think your luck was just bad...  I saw over 20 Stormtroopers in stores and isn't have one paintjob I called bad.  I saw worse Poe figures  but that seemed to be his  eyebrows.  :-\

At any given time that's Jeff, Scott, or me. :P  Usually one of the other two though.

They're currently all in stock for the normal price...  I just got myself my final Rey and a few troopers.  Order up.

BTW Scroll to the bottom after you click the link on our front page story for it...  Rey's tough to get to come up in a search but she shows up in the "suggested" stuff for some reason right away.  As does the Stormie.

Looks like Leia is not in stock btw, which she's actually probably the mathematically most difficult figure to get, which is ironic because she was the last of Wave 2 to sell that I ever saw.

Ugh... I may be buying that.  That is simply insane.

I couldn't stand last week's episode much...  didn't even pay it much attention while it was on, actually.  This show loses me at times, and at other times it holds my attention, but I have to say it's lost me more than kept me this season.  :-\

Tonight's (Ryloth stuff) episode was different though...  Better than a lot of this season for sure.  It actually involved some Rebellion type stuff, and some warring in the stars type stuff.  :P

I liked the Imperial Carrier...  The concept already existed, but this was an interesting different design to Escort Carriers, which IIRC aren't hyper-capable.  It's interesting too that the Alliance wants one.  Makes sense.  They also carried over the notion that Twi'Leks are enslaved by the Empire, for whatever reason, and so I've enjoyed them keeping that narrative going beyond Wookiees.  That some species just are getting the shaft, for whatever reason it may be.

The first sighting of TIE's in racks was nice too.

I'm curious how they'll be going forward from here...  When they're doing actual Rebellion-type stuff, it's a little more interesting.  I can't say the characters have evolved to where I care about them much though.  Except Chopper.  I love Chopper, and his design. :)

There's a lot of better stuff this episode though.  It's definitely cooler than the last one.  Much more fun and interesting.  And seeing Syndulla's crew using CW era hardware still interests me a lot.  Could this be a good way for the Alliance to get some Y-Wings in their arsenal finally?

As the show progresses though, I hope they pay attention to the EU narrative on some things...  I'd hate to see them show the X-Wing's arrival without giving nods to the previously established EU.  The show seems to integrate things well enough in that regard, but that's the kind of thing I could see them rewriting, and not doing a good job of it.

Time to get some Z-95's and Y-Wings in there though. :P  Let's get moving on that, hah.

Got the FO Trooper in the mail.  Took a while from Japan, but free shipping...  It ultimately cost barely anything more than it would've on HLJ I think, so I'm happy.

Great looking kit...  I mean really, these figure kits are amazing.  My only disappointment is I doubt they do anyone out of a helmet.  :-\  I guess there's the other lines for that, but it's still a bummer.  I think they could do eye decals, and the rest would be minor painting issues I would think.  Washes, or just little things like lip color.  Oh well.

Wow did that store get a ****load of 3.75" Wv3!  :o

I bought the LAST Finn (and last 3.75" TBS figure in general) at my store the other day for fodder purposes.

It hit here repeatedly, and multiple cases, but man, we're all sold out.

6" is always backed up to a degree.

The 4" stuff flew off pegs though, almost as soon as it hit.  Even the repacks, which tells me something about who's buying it (IE: Not the old guard).

Target seems to be a bit of a wasteland the further East you go, haha.  Here they've barely restocked since before Christmas it seems.  They're also never as fast to clearance it seems.

I really do hope to nab a couple Ezra bikes for repaintability.  Want me some Imperial versions.

BTW... more meat ponchos.  Why are you NOT doing this trick more often?

Hah, I won't go that harsh...  She's the "hope" element so I don't HOPE for Judith to become food, but at the same time, it's kinda comical she hasn't become it yet.  I mean, bowlcut can't stay quiet yet Judith is repeatedly passed around under everyone's meat poncho and stays silent?  Really?

Certainly at least wasn't helping.  :-X

Crosby's been scoreless last two, but Malkin's out too and so the 2nd line's sorta dismal without him (of course) and it's hampered Kessel who was also sorta coming on (a little bit anyway) since Johnston got pink slipped.  Plus teams then focus shut-down guys on Crosby whereas Malkin often draws the top guys in a kind of irony...  ****** timing since every point is seriously counting this year.  The East is a logjam at the bottom.
