LEGO / Re: Recent Acquisitions
« on: Today at 01:39 AM »
Stopped by the local LEGO Store for the May the 4th deals... to my shock, they had all of the sets included in the sale in stock (the store is small and doesn't have a great track record of having stuff in stock over the last year). I ended up just getting the Battle of Takodana set for $47.99, which is around what the set should cost to begin with. I also grabbed the Resistance Battle Pack for $10.50, which got me the Heavy Armor Stormtrooper promo minifigure. I debated getting the Resistance Transport for $55.99 but didn't want to spend that much cash.

TL;DR - TFA sets are overpriced.

Stumbled upon this set tonight at a local Walmart while looking for TBS Wave 4. A nice surprise! Rang up at $24.86, and the store had 7 of them.

List of LEGO Shop/LEGO Store Sales and Deals for May 4th

A surprisingly decent sale list. Wish there were more TFA and UCS sets though.

Jango preorders went up this morning (afternoon in Japan)... HLJ sold out, but I was able to get one from AmiAmi. No link yet on BBTS.

Apparently the preorders for these things always go up around 4pm Japanese time, which is around 3am on the east coast in the US, if anyone wants to get the jump on the next few figures.

I too scored ANH Luke on HTS this morning. I'm not collecting Rebels stuff so this catches me up until Rogue One hits. Might as well spend the summer trying to track down the stuff that never showed up here (IG-88 wave, Luke/Wampa, Han/Tauntaun, etc)

Thanks for the heads up, Pete... Kylo sold out while I had one in my cart though. ::)

Was able to grab the Heavy Armor Stormtrooper and Unkar Plutt, plus a 6 inch ANH Luke. The hunt continues for unmasked Kylo, Han and Ackbar I guess.

Man those look good. Well, outside of the paint apps on Leia's face, which is a shame because from Jeff's pics that looks almost exactly like modern day Carrie Fisher.

Guess I'll start hunting for these, although my stores are usually 3-4 weeks behind everyone else... if they ever get any stock to begin with.

The WWE drug testing is shoddy at best... the lower paid talent are tested regularly and suspended, but big moneymakers (your John Cenas, Triple Hs, Undertakers) are rarely tested, if ever.

I'm sure the deaths will drop in the future though, as this generation is contempt with playing video games in hotels after wrestling shows, not snorting cocaine and partying in bars all night

NEW RUMOR: Black Series Wave 4 Restock On The Way, Waves 5 and 6 Discontinued

So that would mean we would see a reshipment of the Hux/Asty wave over the summer, while the Han/FN-2187/Jango and Ahsoka/Kanan/Luke waves are done. Hopefully this isn't the case because that is absolutely stupid.

Sheesh... got to work this morning and saw Figuarts Mace Windu was put up for preorder on HLJ. Checked to see if they had the ANH Luke and they didn't. Checked again 30 minutes later for kicks and they were both pre-sold out!

I have Mace on preorder through Amazon Japan, but still need to find a way to get Luke. I was able to preorder the Heavy Armor First Order Stormtrooper through BBTS though.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors
« on: April 21, 2016, 10:16 AM »
So with the recent Black Series rumors from JediNews breaking down the Force Friday lineups, it looks like figures like Leia, Revan, Snowtrooper, etc. are being held until then. Does that mean that we are on a break with this line until then? I just got shipping notice for the Luke, Ahsoka, Kanan wave, so are things on a four month break now?

Really?  Care to share a link?

Chyna was a trainwreck but she was an awesome TV character at the turn of the century.

Rumored Rogue One Wave 1 Lineup for Force Friday '16

Quote
Rey / BB-8 (Re-Pack)
Kylo Ren (new mold)
Rogue One: Jyn Erso
Rogue One: Stormtrooper
Medical Droid
Rogue One: "Seal Team Male" - Forest Whitaker's character

I'll wait to decide on these when (if  ::)) pics leak out, but already owning three of these figures doesn't exactly make me want to rush out at midnight to fight 15 people over 2 cases again.
