One of the best parts of the prequels. I really should check out some of his earlier work.

I took a film class in college, and one day we watched a documentary with Christopher Lee in it. Each time they show him, he's smoking from either a cigar or a pipe and just looks badass. It was pretty awesome.

This HAS to be some stupid way to get cheap sales with a bunch of "Han has a wife, CHECK IT OUT!" hype. Nothing more than a simple cliffhanger, I hope. You'd think Han would have a woman on every planet. :P

FBTB posted the following USD prices, which line up more with what we are used to seeing here in America:

75099 Rey’s Speeder, 193 pieces, $19.99
75100 First Order Snowspeeder, 444 pieces, $39.99
75101 First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter, 517 pieces, $69.99
75102 Poe’s X-wing Starfighter, 717 pieces, $79.99
75103 First Order Transporter, 792 pieces, $89.99
75104 Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle, 1004 pieces, $119.99
75105 Millennium Falcon, 1332 pieces, $149.99

The prices all appear to be "the usual" (ie closer to the 10-12 cent price per piece ratio) but it seems we're getting a small price hike too.

Assuming the figures are $10 each, four of them is $40, and the individual carded figures had more accessories
The Rancor was sold first at $40, then $50
Walmart Jabba was sold anywhere between $30 and $40 depending on the store, but even that came with the dias, pillows, Crumb, and Oola

Even if you count the Luke as a part of the Rancor package and not an individual figure it's still a bit of a ripoff. But like I said, I don't have a lot of the stuff in the set so I'll probably pick one up.

The Force Awakens LEGO set names leaked

75099 Rey's Speeder - 193 pieces - 29.99 €
75100 First Order Snowspeeder - 444 pieces - 54.99 €
75101 First Order Special Force Tie - 517 pieces - 76.99 €
75102 Poe's X-Wing Starfighter - 717 pieces - 99.99 €
75103 First Order Transporter - 792 pieces - 114.99 €
75104 Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle - 1004 pieces - 129.99 €
75105 Millennium Falcon - 1332 pieces - 164.99 €

Could be an expensive fall if I decide to collect the Sequel sets...

Have we gotten any official confirmation that the Jabba is new? I just remember all of a sudden websites were saying "yeah it's new" and all we've gotten is that one RAZR quality cell phone picture for proof. If anyone with knowledge actually came out and said Jabba was new, I missed it.

Ended up grabbing the Cantina Set online from LEGO Shop, and threw in some blind bag minifigs to get the free Winter Soldier minifig. Also last week I grabbed the new LEGO DK minifigure book with the Prototype Armor Boba Fett minifigure.

Got my Revo Boba Fett in the mail today. I'm hoping to have some time here soon to take a few pictures of these guys with their Hasbro counterparts (and compare them to the other Japanese figures)

Finished another great deal with Paul for some Disney stuff. Super speedy shipping and overall a pleasure to deal with.

Got my R2 in the mail from Paul today. Thanks again! I echo the sentiments about the frosted dome.

$19.99 plus tax. Haven't really seen any price variations on the 6 inch line outside of the deluxe figures being $24.99 at Target instead of $39.99.

Picked up Palpatine at TRU yesterday. They had two, and also several Luke and Han Stormtroopers. Only one red Clone Captain though, but it's nice to see new stuff.

Hmm... can't say I'm a fan of the name, but at the same time I hated a lot of the Prequel names the first time I heard them too.

Started seeing the ships at retail this past week... ended up grabbing the Falcon and Slave I.
