That 4th guy looks like a classic Fuzzhead Joe.  I'd want that.

Technically all Joes are "fan fic" from Hasbro. ;)

Bought another Quad Eyes, giving me 3 of them...  This was a partial gift from someone to me. 

I got the Sand Deco which I got at TheToySource since nobody had the sand deco in stock and the prices were good.  The sand is quite different actually and seems a little more "Rebellion" to me.  Like what these look like off the assembly line.

It also didn't have the nudie girl poster in the cockpit, but came with 5 loose anti-war posters mixed in on "worn" paper.

Also this had the extra plastic tracks packed into the box, a change from the original shipment of these.

Anyway, fun to have a new Acid Rain toy to play with. :)  Keeping me busy.

In other news I can only imagine the Laurel Worker variant is going to ship before long because the line's creator keeps posting images of the Worker on Instagram here and there.  Hope it's coming soon!

Easy enough not to but them.  There will inevitably be one everyone wants though.  >:(

I wore my "Dr Hook" McCracken tshirt all day in honor of the Hockeyville game.  Was fun!

Well you're managing 2 languages well.  I do one poorly.

That would be "Si!" :)

9 weeks of Spanish and I basically could count to 10 and ask for water with lemon.  :-[

My biggest question about Tenso I guess, is do they let you pile up stuff and ship at once, ala the Private Warehouse on HLJ?  I was hoping for that, however I couldn't seem to find anything definitive on that question.

I just know, especially after Jeff's links, that I have to find a way to order this stuff for reasonable prices haha.

Read the Fett reviews that are popping up too, and sooooooo glad I got off the pot on that.  Wish I'd gotten two really.  What an awesome looking figure.  Gonna be a bit of a b to paint, but that's fine.

Interesting to note in those pics that the elite TIE is very different to a regular TIE which appears to be just like TIEs of the OT.  I was curious.  Also the XWing model should put to bed the theories that the new XWings are smaller than the OT ships.  Looks pretty beefy imo.

I barely, and boy do I mean BARELY, got my order in for the Fett kit...  It requested payment today.  Whew.  Dodged a bullet on that.

Does anyone have any advice on 3rd party buying services in Japan?  Anyone do that stuff ever?

I definitely want to keep up on these kits.  I'd happily pay more for them, just don't wanna get into Figuarts territory or I'd maybe just go that route instead.  :-\

Someone picked up a few random TFA figs for me at DOllar General...  They have $5 off $25 coupons routinely for usually a Saturday only, and had full cases available so I got a Stormie, TIE Pilot, and Flametrooper to add some articulation to.

Love the Flametrooper in general...  Inspires me to make an OT one someday.  He's like he's fat though.

The TIE Pilot I wish his visor moved, but otherwise he's pretty nifty.  I hadn't gotten one of him yet.

The BAW's are really meh though.  I thought they were cool, and some are cooler than others (Stormtrooper's big rifle has some use), but I'd much rather they all came with just a 2nd rifle or something...  Just me though.

super-Armored-up tongue Action Jar Jar Binks

That's a different kind of toy.

I'm glad that everyone who harps that Hasbro is ruining Star Wars now have a human's name to put to it.

Yeah that's kind of neat that they may appear late.

There was a funny Tosh.0 that involved He-Man this season.  Now that's all I can think about.
