I see that MP Soundwave all the time.  It's Devastator who's missing here.

You sure it's Soundwave with his 5 cassettes?  He hasn't been in distribution for a while and was fairly hard to find nationally based on the TF boards.  You should buy up whatever you see and sell them on Ebay for profit - one just sold today for $249.

If they plan on making a lot of these they should just go ahead and allow more pre-orders then.

They could, but I feel the sense would be "damned if they do, damned if they don't."  They'd get more online purchases, yes, but then we'd get fans that are waiting to find them in stores complaining that they can't.

If more collector's were able to preorder online why would there be more complaints about not finding them in stores?   ???  Its not like the number of people who want one or the number being produced is going to change.  If 20 people in my area want one and they get 12 at the store, that's 8 people complaining they can't find one.  If instead 6 of us get it online and the store only gets 6, that's still 8 people complaining they can't find one. The only difference is that 6 people don't have to waste time looking, TRU get's their money in advance, and they don't have to waste time stocking six of the items.  Sounds like a win to me. 

Or maybe just put up your preorder when you say you're going to put up your preorder $%*#! TRU.

The Masterpiece Soundwave figure was nearly impossible to find in stores.  Not sure how the production numbers look, but I'd bet they over produce this stuff with a movie to support it.  Still, the lack of any figures on pretty much every store shelf right now doesn't inspire a lot of confidence.

I liked this last episode and agree that some of the scenes are really cool.  The hospital patient in the parking lot was awesome.  Wish we were getting a little more of that.  I really like the concept, but also not really vested in any of the characters.  Maybe the mom and the barber, and obviously the hot daughter.  I'm getting really tired of the druggie and the boy scout dad though.  It would be hard to toss in a Daryl or a Michonne at the onset of the plague - I think that would feel forced or corny. But there is nothing really likable about any of the characters.  The two boys are selfish punks, the dad is irritatingly predictable and naive, the mom just seems numb, the daughter is still lovestruck about her boyfriend...they're all just stereotypes playing out roles without any real depth. 

My biggest issue with the show is that the reactions to everything don't seem real.  The dead have come back to life and no one's really expressing any emotion - fear, loss, sadness, anxious, helpless, anger?  They had to blow the neighbors head off, but no one is scared or crying or yelling?  And speaking of neighbors, how about going to help the lady across the street before she gets killed or telling the guy wheeling out his garbage what is going on?  I'd be trying to band together with my neighbors and sharing information versus just glaring at them and sneaking off.  I'll watch to find out what happens, but I'm not jonesing for the next episode like I am with TWD.  Hopefully the military thing falls apart quickly and they had some new, more likable characters to the mix. 

If anyone's interested in packaging variations, a case of the Stormtroopers at MOA Disney came sealed in Kylo Ren boxes.  We found about a third of them with the Ren package on 9/4.

You can also sign up to receive an email reminder when the new figures come out at each Disney Store.

Sold out.  :(

I like these.  Finally a Kylo Ren that can wield a lightsaber with two hands.

"Finally?"  Have you been waiting a long time for this?   ;)

Has anyone found the Mission Series figures?  My Target didn't have pegs for them (and didn't have the figures either)?

Phrub found them at Target last night (West Coast), so they must be on the way.  I haven't seen any pegs for them either.

Wow, they are out?  First I've heard of the new ones hitting. Congrats!

Is that really a variation or just dust and dirt from the floppy wings falling off?  :)

I can easily see them making a Julie Newmar Catwoman with the Cat girl's new headpiece.

Or a custom Marvel Tigra figure.  Meow.

I picked up all nine of them last night. I'll pm you the totals in a little bit.

Paypal sent.  Thanks Paul!

I'm willing to split the shipping if Justin is. :)


Ok, so far I'm picking up nine of these tonight. Anyone else?

Thanks Phrub.  If there are multiple going to MN let us know and we can do a group shipment again.

The TIE pilot is Lt Oxio. Helmet paint variation at least.

We'll see.  I will not be at all surprised if this is a straight repack.

I believe that the new trilogy will end with the last remnants of the Empire being chased out of the galaxy and relocating to a small, backwater world called "Earth," where they will eventually design clothing for WW2 Nazis.
