Got a payment request for my Revo Boba Fett from HLJ today! Hopefully I'll have him around the beginning of June.

Stopped by the local LEGO Store tonight to grab the Spider-Man promo set and was surprised to find the Summer Star Wars sets out. I ended up grabbing the Death Star II Duel, although it was hard to pass on the Tyderium for $20 more. Lots of Endor Rebel goodness in that set (Nik Sant!).

Not counting UCS sets, this leaves me with only needing the Mos Eisley Cantina (which I cannot find anywhere locally ???) and the Imperial Shuttle to be caught up.

Are these still going to be $24.99 when if they hit Target?

Pretty big spoilers dropped by VF, IMO... now we can confirm that the character formerly known as Rose is really Maz Kanata (played by Lupita Nyong'o), has Anakin/Luke's saber, and her castle is attacked at some point by Phasma, played by Gwendoline Christie.

Anyone notice the dude in the picture of the space pirates wearing an old Stormtrooper helmet painted black? Right to the left of the red dude. I kinda wish there were more "classic" aliens, or even PT aliens thrown in, but it's all good. Just from that picture alone, I can tell this castle scene will feel more like the Mos Eisley Cantina than that stupid Coruscant bar from AOTC.

Finally got Vader (and his base) and the Stormie today. Package was kept in customs for a few days, and they tore the crap out of HLJ's packaging. Glad I'm not keeping these carded. :P

I'll try to snap some pics over the next few days, or over the weekend, at least some comparisons with the Revoltech Vader and Stormie.

Some of the figures they made for the 08 Indy line are no better than the 5 POA figures they make now (looking at YOU Cairo Thugs), but I'd be all in on a 6 inch line. And then not buy anything because Japanese companies make the same figures but better. :P

Holy crap, that is a HUGE window between the product launch and the movie release. And all I'm really interested in so far is the Aftermath book.

I snagged the AT-AT to get Yularen. Just need to get the Cantina to be caught up on System sets (will probably get it next month for the WInter Soldier minifig promo), then I can save for the Sandcrawler and hopefully pick it up by the time TFA comes out.

I too grabbed a few at my local LEGO Store today when I went to grab the May 4th Yularen. They were pretty picked over, so I randomly grabbed four - Hibbert, Smithers, Marge and Moleman.

I still have extras of a few Series 1 figs if anyone here needs them!

Are you saying CA:TWS and GotG were just "alright"?!?

Winter Soldier and Guardians were really good, but Iron Man 2 and Thor 2 left a lot to be desired, IMO. I felt AoU fell below the first two but above those last two. Maybe I was too hyped up for it, or maybe I was expecting someone to be offed. I dunno.

Just got back. It was alright... nothing special though, which keeps it consistent with the rest of the Phase 2 films IMO. It almost felt like there were too many characters, and unlike the first, they couldn't find enough screen time for them all.

Yeah, Better Call Saul is AWESOME. It took me a while to "get" the season finale but the rest of the episodes are all good stuff, especially if you've seen all of Breaking Bad. Plus, the official Twitter retweeted me once, so I'll always go to bat for the show.

My wife and I did start watching House of Cards on Netflix and really enjoy that (we just watched Episode 1 of Season 2)...

All downhill from there, but I'm the only one who thinks this apparently. I thought Season 3 was trash too.

I really like this case assortment too, because I can skip Wave 7 entirely. The non-Rex Clones I'm not crazy about, but I could probably trade them for Imperial Navy Commandos from Wave 7 or something.

Damn... I was on the fence about Maul because I don't want to open the Prequel floodgates, but I guess that makes my decision for me.

I see Luke is pre-sold out too, which stinks because I wanted one and never saw them go up.  :(

Got a postcard in the mail today hyping May the 4th deals that will be taking place online and in LEGO Stores. Spend $75, get a free Admiral Yularen minifig (ANH version). Free LEGO ANH poster with any purchase (the same one they posted on Facebook a while back. UCS TIE Fighter officially on sale. "Select sets" on sale, a list of which should leak out sometime soon if it hasn't already. Judging from years past though it will be lame stuff like magnets.
