Too pricey.  I wonder if he would sell you that figure and another Willrow for $50 shipped.  Then you could sell the Willrow to Scott if he's interested.

So, I was browsing Ebay the other day and came across a custom vintage Willrow Hood of all things.  I'm an occasional sucker for vintage customs, so I checked out the seller's other items and found that he also was selling the three prototype figures Nick recently mentioned.  This and the lack of anything new to buy prompted me to cut a deal with the seller for all four figures.  I present to you - Willrow, Mongo, and Imperial Attack Droids A&B.

Scott - the seller was super excited to know that Willrow's creator was a member of the MN group. I promised to show you his creation - I can bring it for you to see in person if you're planning to come to any of the upcoming meetings.  He'd be happy to make another if you have any interest in buying one.  I ended up paying $25 per figure including shipping.

See, that's where I think it's just higher demand.  Just speculation, but these have sold well in the past, so I don't know why Lego would reduce their production run.

I was following that pattern, but finally gave up this year.  Sam figured out that he was getting last year's version after seeing the newer one in stores and talking with friends about what they got in their calendars.  I ended up just letting him open the last old one all at once over the weekend, then we kicked off with the 2014 set (which I bought at full price).  I got the 5% red card discount and we had another 5% from the pharmacy, so figured I wasn't going to save much more than that. 

I had a much harder time trying to track down the Lego Friends version.  I'm not sure where it is carried outside of the Lego store and had trouble finding it online as well without forking over added shipping.  Out of luck/fate, I happened to see it at the airport in Amsterdam during a layover for just $25 and snagged it. 

I'm not sure if they are producing less or if the demand is just getting bigger.  Seems like a lot of our neighborhood kids have them now, which I don't think was the case a few years back.  Small sample, but they seem a lot more popular now.

4 to kick it off
5 for a thriller and the Vader revela
1 to see Vader's origin (or skip this one all together as it isn't necessary)
2 flashback to the start of the clone wars
3 fall of Anakin and the Jedi, Yoda's seclusion
6 addresses all the hanging plot points and ends on a high

7-9 and the solo films might change that up, but its just speculation until we know the plot

Can't believe I have to face off against Brent again this week. Thanks Yahoosports for not being able to figure out how to correctly work a bracket.

Up less than 15 versus Patrick and he still has 3 positions going with Cobb, Crosby, and Packers Defense.  Not feeling good about my chances unless Lacy has a big game.  Going up against Cobb in another playoff game as well, so here's hoping the TDs favor Lacy and Nelson instead.

Pretty impressive win by Brent this week - 90.97 to 90.60.  Does it get any closer than that?  Unreal.  Kudos to Marin on easily knocking off Scott.  Fitting match up and result for Packer fan vs. Viking fan this year.   ;D

The site called Kenstons has the Lego Millennium Falcon set 7965 for $17.10. Is this site a scam site? It's less than a year old and is registered in the Middle East. Has anyone been successful in buying from this site? The site is very slow and clunky. Is this a way to steal information?

I'd be curious to know if you placed an order.  If it did work out, that's one heck of a steal.  The rest of the prices on their site look pretty legit.

I've hit 10 feedback. Not sure I deserve credit for "Great Buyer. Quick Payment." when the item in question was a Buy It Now, but I'll take what I can get. :P

Ha!  Take the compliments where you can get them I guess...

Okay, but if you follow that logic why not just stab Dawn from behind during the swap?  It was a done deal and Beth would have lost her shot if not for Dawn asking to have the other guy back.  Or why not take a gun from one of your people then shoot Dawn on the way out?  I just think her death was lazy writing at best.  I would love to hear more about what Kirkman was thinking - maybe it just didn't come across for me the way it was intended.

if beth 'got it' i'm glad cuz i sure the hell didn't. wtf. she was in the clear to freely leave. i'm sure when she was thinking of stabbing her that she wasn't going to get popped in the head especially when it was only a flesh wound at best with the siccors to the shoulder, it wasn't a life or death wound. but still u knew that was going to make the getting out of there situation that much more difficult. pointless death.

+1 I still don't get it.  She explained it on TD as a sense of overconfidence, but she clearly wasn't thinking through the possible outcomes.  Did she think the scissors was going to take Dawn down?  She just saw a clear example earlier in the show of what Dawn will do when put in a corner.  Outside of immediately killing her, she was going to take someone else down with just a wound.  I get they needed to kill off a main character to keep things lively, but that whole storyline was really weak.
