Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars: Rebels - Class II Vehicles

Yeah, at least they doubled up on the Troop Transports and not the thing that has already been out for months now. I guess I better go ahead and grab another Phantom while they're still out there.

They may have bypassed the AT-DP since that Target exclusive version with the Driver is coming out soon...

Well, that wouldn't be very smart on their part since there is already a TIE with Inquisitor Figure on the market.  ;) I think the odds of consumers army building the AT-DP are greater than the TIE.  And the Phantom seems to be the ship kids would be the most interested in, so really, choosing the TIE is about the worst possible option.  Same old story.

The problem is that they are clearly showing they can make a better offering, then putting some less into production.  We saw it with the 4" Yoda, we see it with Bossk.  Better that they never show us the art of what is possible.  I'd be feeling great about Bossk in the lineup as is, but knowing that they had a prototype that was even cooler and didn't move forward with it makes me sour about the whole line.

Clicky.  Buy.

Pass.  You can find Speederbikes for $25 now, so that's about $50 per Han & Tauntaun set, of which I only plan to buy one anyway.  Glad they at least carried the Scout Trooper forward vs. Jabba though.

Based on the images released on eBay, I contacted the sell and he said that the jaw for Bossk is no longer articulated.  :(

That's really disappointing.  :(

He's still green.  All of the colors look a little washed out.  Take a look at Iron Man's typically bright red for example.

Hadn't even heard of it.  Is it based off the movie?

Here is a video of a little girl dressed up as Darth Vader at the Jedi Training Academy. She had some great interaction with the  Stormtroopers and Darth Maul during the show.

That's awesome.  We're going in June - any tips for sign up or reservations?  How soon can you reserve a spot for this?

I feel like Avengers 2 is going to be pretty good.

That sucks.  I don't know how close this "friend" was to you, but I would think about taking legal action or flying back to kick his ass.  I think the shipping option you chose sounds pretty expensive, but I could see where maybe you didn't have money to go back and forth yourself or pay to ship it all at once.  You could have put it all into storage and shipped later too I suppose but it all costs money.  The crummy part is that you trusted someone to help and they truly did steal from you.  I can't envision any kind of scenario where I would start selling off a friend's stuff without his permission or doing everything possible to connect with him beforehand.  I guess if you dropped off the planet for a year and I needed the space, but man does that blow.  Especially losing that Quakewave figure.  ouch.

Just finished "Kenobi".

Excellent! I think even if you don't like EU that this one will be enjoyable.

Good to know - I will have to check that one out.  Does it cover his pre-Qui Gon years?

I don't know what anyone is bitching about...figures are still $9.99 at ShopKo

LOL!  Sadly, not everyone has a Shopko Ghetto in their market.  The increase at retail blows, but this happens almost every year guys.  We see a big increase in the Spring, then prices soften a bit as we get into the Summer.  If the figures are $10, they raise them to $12 and people get angry and upset for a while.  There are no figures to buy though, so it doesn't really impact anyone.  Then by end of Spring, prices come down to $11 and everyone starts thinking that's a pretty good deal vs. $12, so they effectively raise the price with most people feeling good about it. 

I still buy some figures at retail, but like most I've switched over to online prices.  You can get good deals on full cases through a lot of sites or just wait for the eventual TRU BOGOs or price drops on HTS or Amazon.  I hit Amazon this morning and scooped up a few Yodas for $4 and Toryns for $2.67.  If you can get a few figures at those prices, then pay $12-14 on others, you're still netting out at less than $10 per figure.  Honestly, I can't remember the last time I saw a new basic figure I wanted to buy at retail anyway.  I'm down to mainly just buying 6" there.
