My stores stocked a ton of Phasma's wave before the film opened.  So remnants of that are what I'm seeing mostly, and Constable Bit Part.

The Force Awakens / Re: TFA 3.75" Scale Millennium Falcon

This is NOT staying on shelves much.  BMF's cool, and you can apparently sell yours for pretty astronomical money (talking to a buddy of mine who did just that recently), same with AT-AT's apparently, this new Falcon is moving quite briskly.  I'm just now starting to see it much, but it's usually gone on my next visit.

X-Wings too.  TIE, not as much, and the giant TIE, not nearly as much.  :-\

Just dawned on me too, while Hasbro has restocked (and restocked) and continually sold out, Lego was devoid of toys this weekend...  The aisles were cleared out at WM and Target alike.  Yet, not quite the vitriol I'm reading online for Lego that I'm seeing for Hasbro.

I have 2 WM stores in a relative close area (same highway, several exits apart), and a Target right by them.  All 3 got in a pile of TFA figures last week, and both WM stores have had lots of wave 1 4" TBS figs.

The Target and one WM are in higher traffic areas and the WM in particular is right by the mall I went to see TFA. 

Anyway, Target was picked pretty clean and only a couple of Hux and the PZ droid were left.  WM by the mall was down to Kanan, the little weird rebel alien ground crew guy x2, and not much else.  The TBS4" was down to Leia and a Chewbacca iirc.  The pegs were literally overflowing Thursday night after the movie let out.  Sunday, WM and Target were picked clean.

The WM which is a little further (10 mins or so) up the highway was still pretty well stocked with TFA figures but TBS4" was diminished.  They had a better general stock of ships, 2-packs, and basic figures in general but things were still well sold compared to early last week, and this store had gotten so much it was left on island displays even with no more shelf and peg space.

I gotta say, it's shocking how fast stores are being cleaned out.  It's Christmas time and the movie is onviously popular, but in a weekend, my stores went from stocked to the gills, to picked clean.  Hardly anything can be close to being called a pegwarmer.  Hux, maybe?  It's nutty out there.  If things sold like this in 99, or 02, we'd never have seen those big clearance gluts as the hype died down.

My theory, he makes it to the place Rey was at, hears the FO have left to search for her and the droid, maybe hears about Finn too, finds a way off planet and hopes.

Thank you for looking Paul, it's appreciated!

The only time I think I saw him was in Rey's force trip.

Likewise I didn't see any vehicles but xwings tie and falcon.  The Sandspeeder MIGHT have been in the distant background of a scene tho.  No atrt things no snowspeeder.

I just want my Rey Finn and Poe so I can put a cap on this.  I want the 5poa aliens but I'm not butthurt if I miss them either.

Tho man, 5poa Han I kinda want and to make him poseable.  Geezer is a badass.

Just got home...  Diane went with me.  The kids won't be home from college till the weekend and Josh I figure would rather see it with them than alone with me haha.

Very good.  Some questions in my mind though, and some "meh" moments (I won't lie, it has moments that are just devoid of reason, or at least at this point they are...  could be answered shortly, like in 2 years).

I'm with Hemish on Phasma...  She, basically, is Boba Fett would be my analogy...  Hell, he even shoots.  So yeah, that was really odd. 

The humor was a LITTLE much at times, but when Han was in it, it was always good.  Finn's definitely got some future with the humor though.  Nothing is PT level humor though, it's all far better.

I'm perplexed on how Finn knew how to use a lightsaber.  I'm also perplexed on his future/role...

Poe's as well.  He's like Wedge if Wedge had a ****load more to do than in the original 3 films.

Diane and I had actual debate on Rey's heritage since they spill the beans so early on Renn's heritage.

Overall I really enjoyed it, and I really will look forward to seeing it again.  Probably Saturday barring physical probs.

I saw in 2D...  3D Saturday, and I've had some neurological problems since early Summer, and I've had a bad go of it just this last couple weeks, so 3D is kind of scaring me.  I made it through 2D fine but a bad headache at the end.

The pace was fast and felt like it was wanting to get a LOT in.  Like I'm feeling as though there's a good deal more that is cut from this film.  I also felt like they were trying hard to give a lot of OT nods throughout which is fine, but don't try TOO hard, and I'd be ok seeing less of that in the next film.

I had a blast though, lots of fun, and am anxious to watch again.

Hugs to Jeff.  He'll need them, I'm sure.

That's a LOT of black stormies to piss off either racist people or fans who didn't realize they weren't clones.

I like to think it made some white trash guy's head implode though.
