I also really enjoyed what they did with the music.  Converting Black Hole Sun to a player piano piece was great, as was their treatment of Paint it Black.

I think I am hooked on this show just for the music covers.  "A Forest" by The Cure two weeks ago and then the awesome NIN cover last Sunday (Something I Can Never Have).

Starting to hope they put out a soundtrack just of these covers...

Wow, I managed to either completely not notice or remember that set/figures from SDCC. :P

The more I think about it, wasn't Finn (Jakku) called "Lead Hero Battler Tan" in the E7 code names?  That would be Lead HB Tan...   

Could it just be the Finn/FN-2199 (Traitor!) 2-pack from the TRU set by itself?  Or maybe some other kind of Finn/Trooper set?

EE put up a pre-order for this today.

They say it's due in October but since it's already November, I'm going to guess that'll change. ;)

EE put up a pre-order for Wave 3 of the 2-packs with a cryptic, seemlingly new set -


A little research shows the item number is B9855, which doesn't match an existing set that I can tell.  SWU means it's not Rogue One, and could be Rebels related.  Hmmm...

Looks like you hit the goal, Paul - congrats!  Really hoping it pick up some steam now that it's hit the goal - would really like to see some of those stretch goals get unlocked...

The other thing to note is that Hasbro severed their ties with FunPub, the people who ran BotCon, JoeCon, and those two fan clubs.  Seems like this event is taking the place of both of those shows, plus cramming in MLP and some other stuff for good measure. 

If this show is meant to replace those two, maybe they don't need Disney/Marvel/Star Wars to get enough attention?

I caught up on this show over the past couple days.  Best I can say is that it looks interesting.  Some good acting, some mystery, some slow burn plotline build-up. Lots of potential.  I'll give it a shot and see where it goes...

The press release doesn't mention Star Wars at all (it's clear they are trying to make Hasbro's own brands the focus of this show), but with how this event falls right in the prime "announcing stuff" time of the "Force Friday" season for Episode 8, you have to imagine they would include some Star Wars stuff?

Will be interesting to see how this plans out as far as announcements and exclusives...
