I have seen that set! I even took a picture of it and forgot to post it here. I passed on both sets though they look nice, the Carter/Panther set is especially well done.

Pics are pretty big, so here are links:
- Panther/Carter
- Cap/Iron Man

Caught Finding Dory last night. I enjoyed it well enough, but it wasn't nearly as good as Finding Nemo. Still better than 90% of the garbage that has come out recently.

I now have a Rey with lightsaber and one without still in package.  Can anyone tell me which BB8 version is better?  The one with Lightsaber looks dirtier and the paint doesn't look as good to me, but feels like I've read about that being a "corrected" version somewhere.

IIRC, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong:

- Force Friday Rey had the "inaccurate" BB-8
- A revision that shipped right after the movie came out had Rey with redone paint apps on her face and an "accurate" BB-8
- The new version with the lightsaber also has the "accurate" face paint apps and BB-8

I have all 3 but haven't opened any, so I can't closely compare. But like yours, Justin, the lightsaber version has the best looking BB-8 with the dirt and grime. The second version has a cleaner BB-8.

I saw ID4 2 Friday night, and I agree, it was an awful, awful movie. Like every sequel nowadays, they kept throwing in references to the old movie, or even downright re-doing certain scenes! 20 years this, 20 years that, 7300 days ago, we get it, the original movie came out 20 years ago!

And the PACING. One of the worst paced movies I think I've ever seen. I don't recall ever seeing a movie that built up so many major battles and then showed hardly any action.

Too much focus on the awful new characters, all of whom were comedic. It's like if TFA had Rey fall in love with Finn simply because the script called for it. And if Daisy Ridley and John Boyega had no charisma or talent.

This thing is heading for a Batman vs Superman level bomb and I hope it kills all plans for the sequel.

I believe more casuals, i.e. women, were buying figures too, if the #wheresrey movement showed us anything. And they were not the people buying Sarco Plank figures.

I was surprised to find the Vision, Gamora armored Spider Man today   First time I've seen this wave.

Found a freshly stocked case of this wave at a local Walmart last night. Grabbed Armored Spidey and left everything else (they had 1 of each and 2 Visions)

Awful news, Rob and Matt, and I'm sorry to hear it. I feel like you made the best choice though, Rob, since it sounds like her last few months were rough.

Found an Ahsoka the other day at WM (which I'm giving to a local collector buddy), and last night I found the new Lightsaber Variant Rey at a local comic shop. I made the dumb decision to buy it... for $30. :(

The comic store looked to have ordered some of the revision Wave 1 cases, since they also had the FO Stormie and Chewie, two figures I haven't seen on the pegs in ages. I think they buy wholesale product from Entertainment Earth as well, which explains why they have it.

Just bought a ticket to see Alice in Chains when they come through town in September. Looking very forward to it.

I ended up submitting a support ticket through the SWCT Zendesk after reading some comments on Reddit's /r/starwarstrader. They apparently can merge accounts. Fingers crossed!

So for 6 inch (basic) Rey releases, we have:

- Original Force Friday edition with inaccurate BB-8
- Revision with retouched paintjob and accurate BB-8
- Revision 2, same as Revision 1 but with a lightsaber

The original already goes for like $30-40 on the secondary market, maybe the new revision will bump the first in price too. Then I can retire off of them in a few years. :P
