My guess is $49.99

Easily $59.99 or higher.  R2 was $20 and we rarely get deals on multipacks or exclusives these days.  I would not be surprised to see it at $70.

Yeah, there is some interesting background on this story.  Apparently it was Simon Pegg's idea and intended as a homage to Takei, but when Takei found out LAST YEAR, he expressed his displeasure with Sulu being gay and did his best to convince Cho to go another route.  Takei wanted them to introduce a new gay character rather than mess with Sulu's legacy, but they ignored him and went with it anyway. 

If they were really doing this to support Takei (who is awesome), I would be all for it.  The fact that Takei didn't want this to happen and was trying to get them to go another route tells me that this is just another lame publicity stunt to get people talking about the movie.  Black Johnny Storm, anyone?  It really bothers me that Takei knew and tried to get them to change it and they did nothing - that is the exact opposite of supporting his legacy.

I wasn't that excited to see this movie in the first place - now I'm definitely out.

Awesome. Its so refreshing to see Marvel completely do away with white males in any kind of positive heroic role. New Avengers lineup:

Black Female Iron Man
Black Male Spiderman
Black Male Captain America
Muslim Female Ms. Marvel
White Female Thor
Red Android Vision

I think 12 year old Nova might be on the team now, so that's almost a white "man."  And Ant Man is still a white guy I think. So I guess white males can still be tolerated in low doses so long as they're juveniles or diminished in size.  Its funny though - somehow all the white male bad guys are still white male bad guys.

Now I've got to figure out how I'm going to spend all this money that I'm no longer using to buy comics.

Does that mean we will see a Sulu with romantic "green alien dude in a Speedo" scene like we saw in the reboot movie with Kirk and Uhura's roommate?

Yes it does.

LOL. I'm sure with the constant buzz around Star Wars, Wal-Mart plans to stop carrying SW merchandise. 

I finally broke down and ordered Han and Phasma off eBay.  I found a seller with both for $45 shipped, so I'm out $15 minus any additional gas, time, or stress.

This looks awesome.  I'm just not excited about having to pay $90 for it on Ebay.

FINALLY picked up Ahsoka CW44. She comes with two hilts and two lightsabers that aren't original to her, but for $50 I was happy to have her finally. I can't believe what she sells for carded.

$50? Ouch.  I need to starting posting my extra figs for sale...

Just picked up Chameleon on Amazon for $11. That wave never showed up here, surprise surprise, and I actually found out about it a week or 2 ago.

Nice grab.  These are starting to hit clearance at Target now too as I saw a handful of them for $9 yesterday.

If you're looking for another deal on this, TRU is offering a $10 gift card with purchase of the game.  Looks like it is in store only.

I caught a sneak preview of the Secret Life of Pets with the family this weekend.  Not a big animated film guy, or a big pet fan, but it was pretty good.  They nail the nuances of each animal and it was pretty funny throughout.  Snowball definitely stole the show.

Well, on the bright side it is an actual Kubrick figure instead of a Bearbrick.   :-\

I have seen that set! I even took a picture of it and forgot to post it here. I passed on both sets though they look nice, the Carter/Panther set is especially well done.

Pics are pretty big, so here are links:
- Panther/Carter
- Cap/Iron Man

I need another Cap/Iron Man like I need another hole in the head, but I'll grab that Panther/Agent 13 set.  Cool.

I got my Hux & Asty from EE last week and they look great!  I was a little worried since the paint apps are sometimes hit and miss with these figures.  The Rey looks pretty similar to the KMart version outside of the snow boots.  I'll take a closer look to see if there's anything worth noting between the two. 

I now have a Rey with lightsaber and one without still in package.  Can anyone tell me which BB8 version is better?  The one with Lightsaber looks dirtier and the paint doesn't look as good to me, but feels like I've read about that being a "corrected" version somewhere.

Miracle of miracles, I found a Han and Leia. Only store I know of that even got wave 4.

Just today?  I wonder if that means we should be checking stores again.  There's been no sign of these in my area.

I really, REALLY wanted that ROTS set.  It would have made for a fantastic Palpatine's office diorama.  But I take it the only one that got released was the Tatooine set.

Yeah - I love that Jabba's palace set too with a spot for Carbo Han on the wall.  Unfortunately all they ever produced was the first Tatooine one.
