There have been other Vader's that the head popped off.  I'm going to wait till I get one myself to see if it's a wave-wide issue or just one here and there.  I have a Snowtrooper Cmdr that the hand stays on pretty good...  It's maybe not every figure, so we'll see.

The Cod Piece I'm happy to see is back to being separate.  It looks better that way.

I actually am a little miffed at how they did the cape chain if anything bothers me with this one.  I guess everyone's different in what annoys them. 

Prices were the status quo here, a store that's done the resets, but that's just my own store.

I am in the camp that further price hikes are a real nut punch from Hasbro, if it's Hasbro, but K-Mart reset and the prices were all the SDCC listed ones.  Guess this might just be SOME Targets testing the waters?  Target's a weird duck.

I think a hike in price is equally a kick in the dick for the 5POA or the Black Series stuff...  5POA is supposed to be the affordable thing, the paint apps have been so-so but kind of expected.  Black Series (and the collector line in general) has already seemingly priced itself out of the realm of "casual purchase" territory and anything further is damaging.  Also Hasbro's clearly made cutbacks in quality where they can on any given figure, and paint apps are down across the board on the TBS 4" line.  Any price hike is pretty devastating to something that's struggling and has been since really 2012.

It's the topic of the day.  The sky isn't falling yet though.

See lotsa free shipping though, which is good, but really is only good if the prices were matching BBTS.  :-\  They kinda wipe each other out I guess, and my Pile O Loot will negate the free shipping at EE further.

Option for future orders though maybe, if I'm getting more than a few things.

I never personally looked at the possibility of one battle wiping out a "galactic empire".  EU aside it still is likely the war would've dragged on.  Han even says there are plenty of command ships when mentioning Vader on the Executor comes up but the executor is the only SSD at Endor.

The EU took the angle that the empire becomes fragmented but I'd think its possible it could actually rally and be stronger as a fighting force. 

The way the movies end everyone's just all giddy and everything is wrapped up nice and neat.  I always looked at the various SE scenes at the end of Jedi as, at the very least, spread over a Lon period of time as the planets were liberated or the majority revolted.   I'd think there are ample systems not happy at the outcome though.

Nice to see but yeah they gotta try to make it competitive...  I'm anxious for those prototypes getting preorders.  The price scares me tho.  :-\

The case pack shuffle continues.  Back to 2x each and all I want is the friggin droid.

Ur not harshing my Rebels mellow, sir! :)

I am sure they'll rip off ample other things like frame-for-frame duplication of shots from ANH. :x

Yakface posted a bunch of pics to twitter from a book found at TRU for Rebs and there are some interesting images.  Namely a guy from a ride at a resort.  It makes me hope we will see his vehicle in the show. :)

Hmmm, that's odd.  So your request has to Fed Ex to ship it where you can actually get it during the day, has to go to Hasbro to be sent back to Fed Ex?  Ugh.

Used to be that it was, but people keep pulling "I wasn't there and it got stolen" scams I think.  Fed Ex seems to be doing this more often.

Shocking to see the Falcon hasn't been reupholstered.

Yeah I just expected the other ones to I guess look more Kenner-ish than they do.  They look just different enough for me to not take interest in them I guess.  :-\

I thought it was directly said, by someone, "We heard someone broadcasting, blah blah blah".  I think it was directly addressed in the show at some point.

For the record, if Disney wants me to see anything, I can guarantee them I have no ability to relay accurately what I saw.  Verbal or via my artistic ability.

He can't sit, he can't kneel on his knees (got the trooper to do that).  Sorry Incom, I'm not with you on the skirt...  Hasbro, for $11, needed to deliver a cloth Kama ala the TVC and beyond figure I feel.  Not sure why, after all the time they've done otherwise, they went with a plastic one.  It is the only real detracting feature to the figure IMO.  The hands are no biggie to me.  I can see where they annoy some folks, but they're such a minor quibble.

The skirt means he's either standing or walking, but he won't do much more.  That's a flaw when the guy has 6 points of articulation just below the waistline.  :-\
