I got the email too and went to see if I left any credit card/paypal info in my account since I've literally only used eBay once, and that was ten years ago to buy some VOTC figures. Will probably stay that way too.

UGH - so I picked up the Jek-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter on an eBay auction that claimed the set was New/Unused/Unopened.

Well - it arrived today and imagine my shock to find the two clear tape circular seals that hold the top of the box onto the bottom were both cut.

Opened up the box to find the mini-figure fully assembled INSIDE the bag and then found that the bag was one of those resealable type bags.

Does anyone else have this set? Is that how the bag was? Did the mini-figure come pre-assembled - most Lego sets have the head, torso, legs, hair/helmet all as separate pieces.

Not to mention the fact that Jek-14's hair-piece is missing. I'm not OVERLY concerned about that since I can always request another one from Lego Customer Service to replace it.

My complaint is that it truly wasn't a new/unopened set with those tape seals cut.

Am I being unreasonable?

Little late, but LEGO polybags are never taped or stapled or anything. It's like buying a bag of chips. Would you buy one that was taped shut? Definitely get your money back Pete.

Not too bad of a set actually, and if these are ever discounted I might snag one if the price is right. The Imperial figures are all great and I'm assuming this is the "improved" AT-ST they sold at K-Mart last year, which I never got (and my 09 WM AT-ST has cracked leg joints). Only stinkers are Han and Leia really, and it's not that those are bad figures, they're just old, oddly enough. Also too bad they couldn't throw the movie accurate VOTC Chewie in there since I don't think that headsculpt has ever been rereleased.

Star Wars Universe / Star Wars Spin-Off #1 - The Thread!

Some info has dropped on the first Spinoff: Release Date is December 16, 2016; Gareth Edwards to direct

EDIT: Whoops, checked everywhere EXCEPT the forum where the info was already posted. ::)

Saw these on Entertainment Earth just now and they have the figures available for preorder for $22 each. I hope they offer a case because I really do want all of these even if I prefer the TAS designs over the simpler TNBA designs.

Gonna do my best to see them at ACL, especially if I can get press passes through work. They added the second weekend last year and tickets were really cheap since it's almost too much... hopefully that's the case again this year.

I caught Godzilla last week... I enjoyed the parts with Bryan Cranston and the final 20 minutes but man did the middle blow. The guy who plays the main character reeeeeeeally needs to rethink a career in Hollywood.

Worst part: The scene set in 1999 that features a kid playing with a 2004 LEGO Snowspeeder. Do they REALLY think they can get away with BS like that?

Yeah, people have been snagging the SSD everywhere it's sold. It's always been that way with LEGO though. Anytime there are rumors of a set's retirement, people go crazy (see the Jabba's Palace thing last year when stores sold out of the set because of the mosque controversy). Some people have been saving up for the SSD since it came out, and want one before it's gone, while scalpers see the dollar signs.

Just as long as they don't hire the guy who did Guy Pearce's makeup in Prometheus. Blech.

Word is that the SSD was quietly retired, so whatever is left out there is it.

I picked up the Sail Barge and one of the Imperial Guards battle packs today. Sail Barge was on sale for something like 10% off, and though I originally decided to buy the Ewok Village, I ended up going with the cheaper option. Also got the free Revan minifig.

Caught it this morning. I liked the parts that didn't involve Spider-Man in costume or Electro. Imagine if the films that built up the Avengers were combined into one 2.5 hour movie, but with the Sinister Six, and that's what ASM2 is. Better than the last one at least.

MVP of the film is the guy who played Harry.

Picked up another $20 worth today, mostly duplicates that I'll have to trade away.

Today was the official launch date, so I swung by a local Target and grabbed a few blindly. Ended up with 2 Barts, Homer, Maggie, Nelson, Itchy and Flanders. Along with my TRU haul from last week this gives me 9 of the 16, and I have a few duplicates (and other duplicates from the last few series) that I should be able to trade either here or on Reddit for a complete set.

That's one of the things I'm kind of digging about the announced cast, they all have an OT "look" to their faces. Throw some makeup and weird plastic ears on horseface Driver and he'll fit right in to the cantina.
