Grabbed Nightwing yesterday at a local comic shop.

Still no sign of this wave in my neck of the woods. Checked about 5 different Walmarts around town and they're all the same, empty toy sections outside of one or two Micro Machine sets or Ninja Turtles figures. I even checked a few out of town WMs (where I scored Wave 2) over Christmas and they were exactly the same.

You know these never even hit my area, and I totally forgot about them.

And what a wacky season it was. I still don't understand how we had so many teams at .500 so late in the season. Congrats Cory!

Vader and the Stormtrooper were roughly $40 each when I preordered them on HLJ. They currently have Boba for around $45, and the 3PO/R2 pack for roughly $80.

Thanks to Jesse for hooking me up with some present and past Kmart exclusives! Very easy going and a pleasure to deal with!

Thanks to Jesse for picking one of these up for me! Got here in the mail yesterday and is a fine looking figure. I forgot this thing had the base, so it was kind of a shock seeing the size of the box (and the box it shipped in).

On second viewing, it didn't look like Kylo lost any limbs, and the closeup of his upper body confirmed he had both hands. Finn knicked his right shoulder, and then Rey singed his thigh and left shoulder before giving him that gash on his face. So pretty banged up, and now that I think about it I wonder if he'll need any mechanical parts ala grandpa...

Caught a second showing yesterday, this time in IMAX. It was in 3D (thought I had bought 2D) but overall it was a lot better than the 3D "IMAX" we saw at the AMC theater on Thursday night. The picture was more focused and there were definite layers that I never noticed on Thursday night.

Perhaps it was because the sound was better or it could have been because I've had some time to listen to the soundtrack, but I liked it a lot better on the second showing. Didn't realize it was all original recordings, just not performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.

It also felt like the movie went by MUCH faster on the second viewing. It felt rushed on Thursday too, but I know they crammed a lot in there and JJ has even said something like 30 minutes of stuff was cut out, including Poe's escape from Jakku. I think they did a pretty good job fitting everybody in.

Still interested in how Maz wound up with Anakin/Luke's lightsaber.

Oh wow, didn't realize that was a different Rebel helmet Rey put on. Thought I saw the "caution" stripes on the front!

And supposedly there are a TON of cut scenes. Hopefully they're on the Blu-Ray

Constable Zuvio is already a huge pegwarmer from this wave, and after seeing the movie I wonder if he will break pegwarming records. :P

I thought it was pretty much confirmed that Rey is Luke's kid when she popped on his flight helmet. Now we get to find out why Luke is such a ****** dad, but it's JJ so perhaps they throw us a curveball.

I'm almost more interested in learning how Luke's saber made it from the bottom of Cloud City to Maz Kanada's castle.

Oh - also - so this is the first SW movie without a limb being severed or an injury along those lines, right?

There was some debate in my theater - some thought Rey lopped off Kylo's hand, some thought it was just his face that got whacked... I honestly couldn't tell for sure.  Was going to watch that more carefully on the second viewing.

Yeah it looked to me like he lost a hand but then they did the closeup where you saw the scar and to me it looked like she might have just cut off his hood. Guess we'll find out in 18 months.

Snoke was awful, maybe it was the CGI or the fact that he was literally a 50 foot hologram, but I would peg him as one of the worst villains in Star Wars.

In fairness, Palpatine was pretty lame in 4/5 too.  Snoke was pretty much Palps in ESB = Large/oversized, creepy hologram bossing around the bad guy; badgering bad guy about Skywalker.  Hoping Episode 8 and 9 fills in a little more to explain how/why he's a new Sith leader.  Maybe a lost Palps apprentice or something...

I dunno, Episodes 5 made it out immediately that Palps was THE bad guy, considering Vader obviously feared/respected him, and then the talk in 4 of him disbanding the senate. Snoke just felt like the lazy guy who latched on to Hux and Ren's group project. Hoping something else is done with him in the future.

I think it's interesting that we have FIVE villains lined up for Episode 8... Snoke, Ren, Hux, Phasma (Kathleen Kenedy said she's returning) and possibly Benicio del Toro.
