I learned my lesson from last year and will not be participating in any more Force Fridays. Amazon had everything at midnight anyway. Plus if Hasbro is going to only ship 1-2 cases of product to stores again, it's not worth taking a day off to drive around town coming up empty handed.

75098 Assault On Hoth album on Imgur

Yeah, this might be one of the worst sets in the history of the LEGO Star Wars line. It's just a mashup of four previous Hoth sets, outside of the Ion Cannon and Shield Generator (which both look awful... for $250 they couldn't get the right number of circles on the shield generator?).

The long rumored UCS Hoth set has finally been announced.

LEGO Assault on Hoth™ Base will Challenge Even the Most Skilled Fan Builders Experienced builders can recreate the Rebel Force’s Echo Base from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back in an unbelievably detailed recreation of one of the most iconic scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy. The 2,144-piece building set inspires fans to build their own scouting missions with the Snowspeeder, armed with twin spring-loaded shooters, and get back to base on the speeder bike to help Luke, Han and the other Rebel heroes. The modular design enables fans to customize their Rebel base configuration, including a Wampa cave and Wampa figure. The set features LEGO minifigure versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, and more. Available May 1 for $249.99.

*Insert the Hasbro quote about new sculpts not being available in battle packs*

Still, $20 is a lot easier to swallow that $100 whatever for the Rancor set to get a new Jabba (which was never even stocked at any of my 3 local TRUs so good job TRU)

Theoretically this set will be double hard to find too, since we will be fighting scalpers to get Maz and the #wheresrey people will be buying it to get Rey.

Amazon is running a similar sale so it could just be price matching.

I doubt the Shuttle is being retired since it only came out in August, but you never know.

My local McD's don't serve them for whatever reason. My post from a few years ago, when I was out of town, was the first and only time I've ever had one.

Honestly I didn't even know these were a thing until this thread started.

Found out through an Amazon Japan email that they had Phasma (out next week) and Mace Windu (out in May) available for preorder, so I signed up. Relieved to be able to cross them off my list.

For a complete collection now, I just need to find a way to get the Shadow Stormtrooper and Speeder Bike... my only option for the Speeder Bike might be through BBTS where they want $200 for it. Shadow Stormie is on Bandai Japan's website but I can't navigate it and don't know if I would have to pay to reserve one... :-\

Looks like there's a deluxe edition that comes with a FN-2187 minifigure.

I saw a bunch of TRU armor ups a few days ago, including Kylo, which I believe is the only version of Kylo so far to have no hood. I debated getting it to swap heads with my extra TBS Kylo but TRU wanted $17 for the armor up figures so I passed

I too found a bunch of these on the way home from work this evening. I checked three other Walgreens earlier in the week and they didn't have any Star Wars at all, but the fourth store had at least ten Vaders.

Happy to be able to cross this one off the list.

I know the meme is to make fun of DC for being too dark and gritty but this is just feeding directly into those criticisms

Yeah what Jesse said... no Single Player/Campaign mode outside of a few random tutorials, which forces you to play online. Which isn't SO bad, but then you realize the game modes are all essentially the same, and there are only 4 maps included with the regular game (5 if you have the free Jakku DLC).

And yeah, all of the season pass material, with the extra maps and characters, will cost a total of $50... that's an entire game right there!

The game is apparently hemorrhaging players who are going back to Fallout, Halo, Destiny, CoD... games that offer a lot more variety than just being able to play as a Rebel or a Stormtrooper. The lack of Prequel Content ends up hurting this game more than anything, IMO, as at least that would have added 2 extra sides to play as, and offered a few more maps. Like Walker Assault... how cool would it be to play opposite of the OT version in the game and have Battle Droids trying to stop AT-TEs on Geonosis or Kashyyyk?

And the latest update basically neutered every weapon in the game. I played for about 30 minutes last night. Boba Fett is now worthless as a character since he doesn't have any weapons that heat seek players (Han and Leia still do) and the card weapons (grenades, snipers, etc.) have pretty much been rendered worthless. Meaning you basically have to be at point blank range to kill another player, and even that is a crap shoot because the blasters aren't as powerful.

My point is, good graphics don't really matter if the game isn't good or doesn't have any replay factor.

Ordered Obi-Wan for pretty cheap on Amazon Japan last week and it got here today
