That was fast.  Poe looks snazzy.  I'm tempted.  :-X

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2

Love all 3 and hope I can get a handful of troopers.  Don't intend to army build like I did for the OT, but squads would be neat.

I have like almost $300 now in points at Kmart so I will spend a bit there as $50 will expire anyway. 

I definitely am buying:

-Rey's Speeder...  That looks scaled right detailed and bitchin.  Love it!  It's the type of thing down the road I could see buying more on sale to repaint as it could fit in with the OT easily too.  But 9/4 I will own one and see if I can custom up Rey to be a better figure too.

-thug/scavenger & bb8 2-pack...  I want a BB8 and I think those aliens look neat enough as is.  Sure I want SA aliens but all 3 for $15 I won't bitch.

I'm not sure if I will buy the following all on the first day but some I think I will:

-BAW Res Trooper, Poe, & TIE Pilot...  Thinking 2 of the 3 I may be able to articulate myself easily enough and Poe may be a little more work but I dig Pilots enough I'd like to own the first one.

-BAW Flametrooper, Finn, Constable...  Again I think I can articulate two of them easily and the constable guy I'm ok buying as just an alien to put into any scene on my shelves.

-BAW these 3 I'm really debating but Rey, Stormtrooper, and Phasma...  Don't know if I want another Rey and don't know if I want too many stormtroopers to mess with.  Phasma is neat, so more likely for me to pick her up.

-Speederbike w/elite Trooper...  It just looks fun for me.  And again I think I can articulate him beyond what extra I think he already may have.

Then I have several items I'm debating and reluctant to buy full price:

-Snowspeeder...  I like this despite it being slightly small.  I would want to customize here though and that would hamper me wanting to pay $25-30 then.  You get a figure though, sooooo eh. 

-Sandspeeder...  Similar to above but slightly less interesting to me so much more likely a sale purchase.

-ATRT...  Not sure where my interest is here yet at all but more than likely sale. 

-Armored Poe...  I like the figure, but that price?  Nope.  Sale or bust.

Goofy things I want:

-Stormtrooper NERF gun to chase the cat around.

-RC BB8...  I'd buy either of these on sale ultimately. 


-XWing & TIE Fighter...  I wouldn't mind owning either one really but reality is neither impressed me scale wise and short of a steep and impressive discount I'm out on these.

And that is where I stand.  I will set a budget with my Kmart points and get some of the top of my list wants.  From there I will begin to make decisions based more on price/sale than anything.  I can wait this out and not care if I miss something at all really.

Oh and chopper/zeb will be an impulse buy but most likely a buy so I get Chopper finally.

Chewbacca looks a lil more tubby no?  Maybe not but I thought he looked maybe a little different.

Yeah Chopper/Zeb is only a must for me since I don't have Chopper yet...  Ahsoka/Vader WOULD be a must for me if it were realistic but it's not so meh.  Those others are all OT/PT and pretty meh except R2/3PO which was also not compelling enough to purchase due to a red arm.

Speaking of which, the 3PO's eyes didn't look too hot either in the pic, and I just feel like better sculpts of that figure exist anyway.

The BB8 set is an obvious must-buy IMO.  They may be my only request I put out to my friends going out on 9/4's midnight madness.  Love BB8 since the first time I saw him, and aliens are aliens.

Agreed, I think not all is in there...  I think this is also something of a "preview" of sorts too. :x

Yeah the BB8 set interests me, and the Chopper set because I would like to own a Chopper figure at some point...  I can't recall off-hand all the others now.  ::)

I do recall Han/Leia not looking so swift though.  These were a mixed bag of good/bad, like they always seem to be.

The frontal image seems to imply a slice down the center of the cockpit so I'm guessing it does open...  It comes off in one piece I think, and voila.  Looks about as spacious as most of the other Falcons have been, which isn't to say very much.

I like that they made one of the bunks functional.  Goofy, but funny.

I was kind of thinking similar but it doesn't look as dumbed down as the Rebels toys which I recently saw defended like they were the second coming recently, and I just don't get it...  That AT-DP collapses every bit as easily as the AT-ST does/did and it's less easily fixed IMO.  The TIE was kind of neat, but my love ended there really.

The reasoning to scale these Speeders down escapes me I guess.  They look as though they'd have fit the boxes they're made to even if they'd been the SLIGHTLY larger sizes they'd have needed to be, but hey whatever.

I see potential in the Snowspeeder as a "speederjeep", something I've always kind of enjoyed as a Star Wars concept of sorts...  West End Games had something out and even made a miniature of it back in the day, but I like this design more.  Basically a small utility vehicle.  And this looks BETTER than those Rebels ships...  IE: less of a printed plastic sheet, and little more detailed.  I don't care for that color, but I can change that.  It looks like there's separate details and things I can work with at least.  Slightly smaller than its on-screen counterpart, but I'll work with it, and given how little ST stuff I'm likely picking up I'll happily move it into my OT scenes with some Stormies in it. :)

The other Speeder, which shall remain nameless for spoiler's-sake, looks like something out of the road warrior.  Weird but cool.  Again, definitely truncated but not by a huge margin so I don't get WHY.   The box looks like it would've handled the slightly larger size, but hey whatever.

Hasbro just made everyone take all th links down this we weren't bothering with all the news links.  ::)

It's our now...  The party is spoiled.

Actually doesn't seem like a lot of spoilerish material in any of it.  All mostly trailer stuff.

Anyway on these vehicles I'm a little bummed they scaled them down at all.  Totally unnecessary IMO.  I'm into both speeders shown but both need a lil work IMO so they'll be projects for me.  Steps above what we've been getting of late though perhaps.  Tough to say in pics.

Exactly...  The playset portion is really fun looking actually and detailed.  :)

It's the big ticket toy of the iconic ship for kids this year like 1978.

No, Making Star is who showed them off I believe.  JTA Yakface and others linked them and were told to remove the links.  Sandtroopers then took Making Star Wars' images (which were all catalog images and very clear) and hosted them on Facebook for some reason and they were told to remove them I'm assuming as they are gone now as well.

They're gone ATM...

I imagine everyone would just be complaining.

I liked some I saw, not some other stuff.  I'm basically where I was.  I just have a more clear sense how downsized the 2 Landspeeders are though. And Reys Speeder is AWESOME looking IMO.

Little disappointed to see my only crack at Chopper will be in a friggin 2 pack too.  :(

Ugh at holes in the back unless they're small.  I like that TIE pilot tho.  Poe not so much.  I'm on for a TIE Pilot though right now.
