Yeah, I'm sitting on $20 worth of rewards from over the last year or so. My goal is to bump that total to around $50 and put it towards either the Ewok Village or the Sandcrawler.

Pete, if you can, try to hold out another month for those larger sets. Rumor is LEGO Shop is doing a 3x VIP Promotion in the first half of October. I'm planning on getting the Cantina and either the AT-AT or the Star Destroyer then.

I put together the new Snowspeeder the other day, fun little set. Not worth $30 though.

I had to sign for $60 worth of t-shirts I had delivered a few weeks back, but that was a package from Japan and they have wacky shipping/delivery laws there. No clue why Hasbro would want a signature. If it's because of size, why didn't we have to sign for those ridiculous Death Star and Indiana Jones sets from a few years ago.

I agree. Hasbro is so concerned about cutting costs, if they were going to go with a plastic kama, why not cut back the ball jointed legs and ankles?

Figure looks nice from the waist up though.

I too spotted this at Target the other morning, it was just lumped in with those 20 inch figures (Vader and Chewie). Bet that will cause some fun if they ever stock enough of that stuff to let it get disorganized for the holidays. Like everyone else, I passed.

That guy sounds like a tool. Is he the same guy who used to post on Rebelscum and then got a big head because he was hired to draw a lame comic on

Rumored Spring 2015 Lineup

- ARC-170 Starfighter
- Vulture Droid
- Snowspeeder
- Republic Gunship
- Homing Spider Droid

System Sets:
- Geonosis Troopers
- Shadow Troopers
- T-16 Skyhopper

Rebels Sets:
- Imperial Troop Transport
- Ezra’s Speeder Bike
- TIE Advanced Prototype
- Wookiee Gunship

I'm digging this lineup, only one official OT set, which gives me more time to pick up the OT heavy lineup just released. I'll probably buy a bunch of the Imperial Troop Transport sets.

Spotted Chris Reeve Superman and Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman at Target yesterday. Both looked good but Supes had questionable paint apps on his face, specifically the eyes.

I got the Snowspeeder last week when I visited the LEGO Store. Gonna hold off on the larger sets until October when they have triple VIP points.

Saw it last night... I liked it, but I didn't "love" it as I have a lot of the other Marvel flicks. I definitely want to see it again to form a better opinion though.

Snagged the Exosuit set at the local LEGO store this morning... yikes! There was a line of kids and scalpers when I got there at opening, and the ONLY reason I was able to get a set was because the store had a 1 per household limit. The scalpers were pretty upset. Two week backorder on LEGO Shop too.

Anyone else interested in this Exosuit set? Comes out next week and supposedly will only have a single production run.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic Con 2014

Well I'm excited for Dutch Vander, and is that Rex or some other Clone? Guess it's Wolffe. Leia looks great but I wouldn't be surprised if she just had shoulder articulation at this point.

Chewie... I think it's different. New headsculpt. The VOTC 04 version was based on ROTJ and had an open mouth while the Early Bird 05 was based on ANH and had a closed mouth. This one is a mix between the two?

I realize that a lot of things are going up in price, but there has to be a breaking point. Can you imagine paying $15 or so at retail for that lame Yoda we're getting in TBS 4 inch Wave 4? Like Jesse said above, there's always more things to spend money on, and that's what I plan on doing if prices keep going up because honestly collecting hasn't been "fun" in about three years for me now.

Bigger does seem to be perceived as "better" for collector-oriented toys though right now, and for the most part they're right.  If you read the article yesterday we posted a link to on the front page, regarding Jabba The Hutt's 6" figure creation process, Hasbro was very pro 6", and had a stance that what they do in 6" can't be done in 4".

Yeah what was up with that? The first thought that popped in my mind was something like "Well if bigger is better then why did the Hasbro 12 inch line suck so bad in the later years?" I got the feeling like they're still really ticked about losing the 12 inch license to Sideshow and being one-upped, so they're trying to make things right with the 6 inch line.
