I've hit up random Walgreens around town over the past few weeks for random stuff and each time I hit the toy section just because... I know there are a gazillion Walgreens on every corner but I have no idea how this is even going to work because Walgreens' toy aisle is pitiful at best.

UCS Dark Knight Tumbler Coming in September

Includes TDK Batman and Heath Ledger Joker. All yours for $199.99.

It really depends on the articulation. If we're getting super articulated figures, I'll more than happily pick up the OT gang and probably the new main characters. But any troopers or minor characters? Probably not. I have more than enough Rebels and Imperials and won't care enough to pick up Poggle the Lesser or Zam Wesell type characters. Plus most of my collecting focus is on LEGO now, and that takes up enough space on its own. Adding a whole new trilogy to what I have, yikes.

Part of me is praying we get a shoddy 5 POA line similar to the last few Marvel movies so I can skip it entirely and not feel bad.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

The more I think about these lists the more I wonder if a lot of these rumored figures are possibly on the way just for the heck of it... take Boushh Leia for example. The last version we got was near-perfect, and while I know there can be improvements to it, I'm thinking it's more of a case of Hasbro saying "we haven't had a Boushh in circulation in almost a decade, let's make a new one."

Yes please!

And many thanks to the creepy paparazzi who got the Ashley Benson topless pics a few days ago too

Wookiepedia says the name was always Doallyn until Insider 143 came out last year, which apparently claims the name was always Brock Starsher. ???

Yeah I bought the Flying Car set with Spidey, Venom and Nick Fury last summer. Awesome set, and I wish the BTTF Delorian turned out a bit more like the car in that set.

Wal-Mart has had random deals on occasion. Back in April I snagged the Man Bat DC set for $15 on Rollback, normal MSRP being $20. A few weeks later I snagged the Flash set on sale at Target during a sale and ended up saving another $5. I've noticed they do that frequently for sets in that price range, which is why I usually wait for those to go on sale and then snag the bigger sets on LEGO Shop for the easy VIP points.

Space hasn't really been an issue for me until the last several years. I was more of a casual figure buyer up until ROTS came out when I started working, had additional income, etc. I basically had a desk and a dresser to put stuff on (everything was in my room as I lived with my parents) so in 2007 we put up some shelves on two walls in my room. One side hosted LEGO and the other side hosted Hasbro figs. I had plenty of room! Then I started buying Indiana Jones figs, Marvel Universe figs, and 99 percent of the Star Wars offerings and things got out of hand again. I started buying LEGO again after a several year hiatus in 2011, and that's when I completely ran out of room. Since then, my figures have remained boxed and inside of my closet. Most LEGO sets I buy I keep boxed as well, mainly due to a lack of space for them. I even disassembled a lot of older sets and put those in the attic, and still have little room for it all.

One problem I have is I could easily store some stuff since I've been out of my parents' place for a year but my closet is filled with the aforementioned carded figures from the last 3 years, along with several Rubbermaid bins full of old 90s toys (Marvel/DC Animated figs, Power Rangers, WWF, etc.). I've considered getting rid of the old 90s toys but I don't want to deal with selling them online and definitely don't want to just give them away. There's a new store in town that buys vintage toys but I'm assuming they'd only be interested in a handful of items.

I liked the Extremis Port Set... also bought the Malibu Mansion sometime last year but haven't built it yet. I want to get the newer Marvel sets (Cap/Red Skull tank, X-Men vs Sentinel, new Hulk/MODOK set) since they're somewhat based on comic appearances, but I'm going to wait on the next LEGO Shop promo since two of those would put me near or over the usual $75 threshold.

How's the Spider Trike set Pete? I've heard nothing but bad reviews for it (although I might pick it up on clearance just for the Electro)

The Sequel Trilogy / Star Wars Episode VIII

I guess it's already time for a thread for Episode VIII since things are already rolling along for it.

Rian Johnson to write, direct Episode VIII

Ordered this set at the beginning of June and got it in the mail last weekend. Put it together the same day. Fun build, and the model looks a heck of a lot better than the BTTF DeLorean when it's all said and done, and I love the BTTF set too!

There are a few small modifications I want to make but that's the beauty of LEGO!

Got Vizam, Merumeru and Plagueis at a local grocery store. They put out a fresh case of Wave 3 so I snagged the ones I wanted most. I had planned on ordering a case but decided some figures I didn't want at all (Troopers) and others just didn't look as great in person (Mace Windu).

Official Trailer on YouTube

Not much in terms of actual game footage but I assume we'll see more this time next year.

I'm going to do my best to stay spoiler free but keeping free of ALL info? Yeah that's not gonna happen, considering the length of time until the movie comes out, along with visiting this website. Plus it seems like EVERY website has new info whenever it comes out.
