Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

She's got no accessories and some play wear, thus was inexpensive,  but added my first Glasslite figure to my collection by picking up a Leia the other day.

I had a smile on my face every second Jesus was on screen. So glad he's finally in the show.

Amen Rob

Has there been any mention of how long the new Titanium Helmets series will run? Or will there be non-Force Awakens? I'm picturing 50 different Star Wars Titanium Helmets all displayed together and thinking that would be amazing. On the other hand if there are ten total then it's just kind of a random line lost in all the rest of my stuff.

I'm just glad we're getting Maz. $20 isn't enough to get worked up about. Now if they do this over and over with new figs I'll get on the bitch train.

Thanks Jeff.

Have there been any rumors/announcements/rumblings about a 6" scale Maz Kanata?

My prediction made with no research other than 4 viewings of the movie and reading the book once.

Ben is the star student at Luke's academy. He's got a little fandom towards his grandpa and a big ego. A younger girl shows up and is very force strong. Ben finds out who she is, Luke's kid, realizes his open path to the next big thing Jedi isn't so guaranteed now. Snoke starts putting ideas in his mind (in book leia mentions snoke was watching Ben for a long time). Next thing Ben destroys academy with luke and daughter only survivors. Luke goes to his mountain. Rey to Jakku to hide and here we are.

I always enjoy reading the SW novel after having seen the movie multiple times.

That being said, it didn't add a ton.
unkar pluut in maz's castle
more about how starkiller weapon works
poe getting from crashed tie fighter to safety
some of rey's inner thoughts about the force/dark side

And there isn't really anything kylo ren thinks or says that is specific about who or how he knows rey. But there are things the book says that tells you he does. And snoke says to hux "I think kylo was right about rey"

Also enjoyed the han death scene. What han and kylo were thinking.

And snoke is a lot more pissed with kylo about some of his decisions

That was kind of all over but hope it helps

And she is?

It's not specific, but I've heard a lot of people saying they'd like her to just be "a girl" who becomes a part of the story and doesn't have to be Kylo's sister, Luke's daughter, the other survivor from Luke's academy, etc. and that possibility is gone.

Finally got a chance to read "The Force Awakens". Not as much extra info as I was hoping, BUT Kylo Ren certainly knows who Rey is pre-Force Awakens.

If you have a "small" Target by you that carried the Millennium Falcon take a look for them. Target near me marked them down to $41 and change today.

Are you talking about the one with the nerf gun in it?

Yes, sorry, Battle Action or whatever they called it with Nerf gun and Finn, Chewie, BB8. Was $140.

I think you missed my point, Nick.

No, I got your point. Hook em at "cheaper" figs w/ no articulation and then when you raise the price because the figs are nicer you've still got them hooked.

You just got the brunt of my annoyance with every (of course that's exaggeration) post about Hasbro and the new line of figures having to be negative. Jeff points out a nice upgrade to the Ackbar and the next comment is about Hasbro suckering people in. Again Siddy it isn't really about your post as much as it is I feel from what I read I'm the only one who likes and still enjoys this new stuff (again an exaggeration).
