Yeah I went and checked my local store just before closing last night and they had nothing. Outside of a case of the Mission Series 2 packs and restock of Pop Vinyl Bobbleheads, the TRUs around here haven't stocked anything since Force Friday.

And now everyone has a win and a loss!

The first wave of 2016 Star Wars sets leaked over the weekend:

- (TFA SPOILERS) Unnamed TFA Starfighter (TFA SPOILERS)

Rumors about a new Rebel/Resistance fighter have circulated for a while.  I think this might be the U-Wing fighter.

It definitely looks like some sort of evolution of the B-Wing. Also notice it comes with the new Ackbar and new Leia.

I had $ at TRU expiring so I stopped by today and they put out a new case of 2-packs so I got bb8 set for $2 and change. :)  Been a busy weekend.

Has anyone else noticed that these boxed figures can easily be opened, and then resealed?  It is a MOMC nightmare.

Yep, I posted this in another thread a few weeks ago:

Saw all of these but the BB-8 set at TRU tonight.... and they had all been opened. ::) The only one that looked tampered with was the Vader/Ahsoka set, which didn't look like it had anything swapped out, but it still looked off. Passed on it all.

It was weird because the possibly tampered sets I saw didn't LOOK tampered, but the Vader/Ahsoka set had a E-11 blaster floating around near the feet, and the 3PO/R2 set had tape that had clearly been removed and put back into place. Thankfully the case I found yesterday didn't have any problems, but it is rather annoying to have to check stuff like that when you used to just have to do a quick check to see if the paint apps were decent.

Good episode tonight. Didn't quite care for the flashbacks combined with the "live" events but I'll probably like it better on a rewatch.

SO much better than Fear TWD.

Found BB-8 at TRU! They must have unloaded a fresh case because there were multiples of all of the 2 packs and they were just scattered around the shelf and not hanging on the pegs.

Also picked up a Finn because I saw one with a perfect paint job. There's something about Finn's costume that screams "generic OT background character" and I might snag more for customs.

Been fooling around with Rey's Speeder for the last two days since picking it up... there isn't much action (just the pop up missile and some movable brakes) but it's still an awesome vehicle. Similar to the Landspeeder. There's a lot of "swooshability." Ironically I'm pretty sure this thing was designed for super articulated figures since the pack-in Rey doesn't even fit on there. In fact that's why I ended up buying the speeder, to put the eventual SA Rey on there.

I think it costs about $5 too much as it's really small, but again, the scale feels accurate and it fits in with a lot of OT stuff, and the only truly bad part is the pack-in figure.

I'm assuming we'll see nothing new, and Hasbro will "officially unveil" stuff we should be able to buy in stores right now, but can't. :P

Finally chugged my way through the last two episodes, and honestly I mostly fast forwarded through them. I don't think I'll be watching Season 2.

I too am seeing Desert/Snow Series 1 at Walmarts here.

Tonight I caved and snagged Rey and the FO Stormie (my first 3.75 inch figures) along with Rey's Speeder. The speeder is probably the coolest and most accurate (and only?) vehicle we've gotten since the Speeder Bike in 2012.

Stayed at my parents' house for a few days this weekend (where my collection is) and checked my 2010 Jabba and it had a few drips of grease/oil on the underside. I removed it from the dias and left it on my desk in an upside down manner as a precautionary measure. It didn't appear to have causes any damage to the dias or any of the figures surrounding the Jabba.

I got my Maul in the mail from HLJ yesterday. Haven't had a chance to even open the package yet, and probably won't until next week. Maybe I'll finally take a few hours and take some detailed pictures I keep saying I'm going to take. :P

Yes, you can stockpile stuff on Tenso. Basically what happens is when a package arrives you get an email, then you go to their site and pay for shipping. Or you can let it sit there if you're waiting for other stuff, then when it all gets there you can consolidate it into one package and they ship it all out together. Very similar, if not the same, as HLJ's private warehouse. I just don't know if there is a time limit they have for holding stuff before they automatically ship it out.

What courier service should I use?  I only found Tenso.  :/

I use Tenso, but I have also heard of White Rabbit Express, which supposedly offers cheaper shipping options. I haven't tried them yet since I'm lazy and don't order stuff from Japan THAT frequently. Tenso is usually around $20-25 to ship stuff to the US (since they only offer express shipping) but they will consolidate your packages if you have a bunch of stuff from different places. Here's a good guide that explains how Tenso works.
