I will totally buy this if it gets down to $30-40. 

I like these big battle packs, but I don't get the pricing at all.  You get 8 figures and a ship.  The 8 figures are straight repacks, so I'd line them up with Legends at $6 each.  The AT-ST is a repack too, but put that in the $30 ship assortment and all total I'd expect to pay $80ish for these items new, packaged by themselves.  Now last I looked, "bonus packs" and "multipacks" of every other product in the store cost a lot less than buying the items individually.  When I buy a 12 pack of soda, I don't expect to pay the same price as buying an individual can.  The manufacturer saves on individual packaging and locking in a multi-unit purchase. 

Case in point, maybe a can of soda is $.50 by itself versus $.25 in a pack ($3 for a 12pk).  Shouldn't I expect to pay about 50% less in my bonus packs for Star Wars?  That puts this thing right around $40, which is right in the range I'm willing to pay.  Even if you upped the individual figure price to $10 each, you're looking at $110 individual pricing, so still only $55ish for the bonus pack.  That's a far cry from $99 or even the eventual $70 at 30% off.  Ridiculous.

Anyone interested in some life size Star Wars replicas?

You can get all 8 for the price of your house.

Actually GOTG rebooted a year and a half ago with these specific characters and it's been selling very well from what I understand.  I haven't seen the movie, so not sure what liberties they've taken, but I'm sure things like the Nova-Corps are very different from what we get in the comics.  From the previews, it does look to me like they got the character personalities right across the team, which is really what Marvel has been doing across all the Avengers stuff.  If you get a macho Stark, boy scout Cap, Regal Thor, and a Wise-cracking Star Lord, you can make the link to the comics while changing the storyline all you want.

Saw this last night. The wings don't open. The plastic is the same plastic used for the Star Speeder 3000. Kind of cheap but solid. There isn't a lot of detail on the ship however it could be made to look fantastic with a paint job. The R2 is just a dome like what was included in the ROTS Jedi starfighters. It think the slot could be drilled out to hold a real R2. The is nothing inside the toy and no other play features. I guess we could cut the canopy off and build out some kind of cockpit for a figure. It's big enough to hold a figure in there. The canopy could be recasted clear.  Electronics could be taken from the FX version and stored inside. The wings could be cut  and extra plastic sheets added to the holes.

It's interesting it says Disney on it.

That's an awful lot of modifications for a ship that already has a dozen decent versions IMO. Pass.

You'd need a big printer.  Maybe partner with Jay?  I built mine over the weekend and it's pretty awesome.

I heard that your clan isn't visible if it is currently participating in a clan war.

Ahh...maybe I will try again then.  I reloaded over and over and went through all of the Winterfell options, but couldn't find you.

Nice grab.  Does it have a good visor plate?  I grabbed one this morning that looks pretty bent up.

In other 6" news, I picked up the W4 Anakin and Clone Trooper at Target this morning.

Missed it by an hour.   ::)  I thought it might be this morning, so checked before work, but was too early, then too late.  Meh.

I looked for a good 20 minutes last week, but could not find your clan.  I'd join if I could find it.

I actually spoke to the TL in toys at a Target earlier in the week and he said they had scheduled their reset for Sunday.  Another local store already has their toy aisle done, so maybe thats true with your store, but not others.

Sounds like they can start building the new pogo as of Sunday, but they have the whole week to get it done.  So, good idea to start looking on the 3rd, but don't be surprised if the reset doesn't happen until later in the week.
