Go! also sells toys and other stuff...  Some are strictly calendars only though from what I've seen, and pop up at holidays I think.  But like the one at my local mall is a toy store more than a calendar store, actually.  They have SW figures as far back as TVC cardbacks and some Funko stuff, Legos, etc.  Prices blow.  They make KB look like bargain basement.

Yes thank you Paul, for the assist on this one.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Wampa and Hoth Luke

Depends how accurate you want things to be I guess, but a 6" Wampa would be significantly larger in such a small scale than a 4" Wampa...  When you get into scale at that size, small things make big differences.  Like speederbikes, or snowspeeders, for instance.  Some folks didn't mind the vintage molds on those, but the reality, especially to people who pay close attention to scale, is that they were grossly oversized.

The Wampa would be kind of a similar thing.  Some people may not care, but if scale matters to you, it'll be noticeable.

I was working on one...  It's a fair bit it you squeeze wave 2 and 3 into one wave.  Basically as much new as wave 1 had.  That powder blue R7 or whatever it is has no matching body.  Weird.

Some I'd put in the "just enough difference to make you mad" column from some parts in wave 1 also.

I love the orange parts and the white r2 w/red details dome.

A "plain" (more or less) R3 is highly appreciated too.

I'm with you Mike, this show's been filled with what I ultimately think of as worse, if we're rating things...  Rape's actually pretty frequently mentioned, implied, and outright shown at various points in the show.  I guess I was figuring this was somewhat inevitable really, since she was dumped at Winterfell and left to marry one of the craziest characters left on the show (at the moment).

Littlefinger never has all his cards on the table.  While Sansa's fate had to be understood, I'm not so sure he's abandoning her completely.  At least I don't feel that way yet.  He's easily one of my favorite characters because of his complexity.

I want to kick Cersie in the vagina.

I can't blame Tommen so much...  He's a child, and truly a child unlike his brother.  He's really just a kid stuck in all of the mess.  He's probably thinking he'll fix it later.

I hate the religious zealots now too...  such dickholes.

Can't say I feel bad for a guy spending $7k on a modern anything really...  This kinda poop happens.

Yeah, got the news on price and just laughed...  $20/per.  I knew that store was pricey but yeesh.  I almost thought it was mislabeled, but nope.  There are two reseller stores in the mall that had these, and the figures are still there.  Testament to how priced out they are.

Weird though that they surfaced at all.  Just odd.

Unfortunately my friend is there, but it's hectic.  And now the Wave 3 ones are out?  Ugh.

I want those orange astromechs BAD!  Love the deco.

And Ahsoka's droid too.

Wish I could go, but just not in the budget these days for a big vacation like that, but man SWW looks fun even without the droids.

Not winning a cup will hurt his legacy, but he's also not done by any means so you move onto next year and wish.  He remarkably improved his 2-way game this year.  I think that helped him and outside opinion of him overall this year.

Ugh.  Good lord.

And iirc on at least r2d60 didn't they say it'd be either available at both parks or online at CA?

Glad your dog's doing better Rob...  Geeze, so much going on with pets.

I'm currently trying to find a reliable method of edible anti-tick medication of some sort...  I deal with a feral cat group who I've largely caught/fixed (one wily one) and ticks are an ever-increasing issue here as it seems like Summers are longer/hotter and winter shorter.  Never had tick problems as a kid here, now it seems constant though.

2 let me remove them, but two don't let me near them...  So food seems to be the only way to get medicine into them at all.   ::)

That's appreciated Phruby, as I know I want that Disneyland droid that may be a bear to get any other way.  R2-D60.  I'm addicted to their droids though.  Just got R2-MK (Mr. Mackey's droid, clearly) from China the other day, and am pleased to have that snazzy deco mixed in on my shelf.

If they hit 5 below I'm on em like stink on poop.

I see nothing of value here for me.  I went overboard on the Amazon 6-pack of repacks of these when it was super cheap (Red BD, Sandtrooper, TIE Pilot, Utapau Clone, FA4/TC70 Droids).  I stocked up on the Scout Trooper while the Black Series wave 1 was cleared out.  There were lots to be had for $5 or so on Amazon or BBTS.  Not sure I need more of anything else, even at $5.

With most of it being army builders, I'd be open to a lot of things like TIE Pilots and the Sandtrooper.  PT stuff, not so much.  Those two though, I'm in, and I'd consider some of the others even.  I look at my TIE squads as meager.

I got several of these when they were dumped on Amazon, but probably not as many as I'd have liked.  I forget why now though.  I just know I regretted not buying a ton more.
