Just looked the comic packs up... I literally don't remember ANY of those. My stores stopped stocking them after that terrible Marvel Purple Dengar wave

When did we get an Exar Kun figure?

You were saying?

The Original Trilogy / Re: Does the Emperor Get Haircuts?

There's a Robot Chicken where they discuss the Emperor getting a haircut?  Seriously?

For Jesse.

As also seen on Robot Chicken, Chewie's hair is always perfect, so one would assume he doesn't eat haircuts.

Why do we barely see anyone drink or eat?  If that Death Star briefing was held at my work everyone would have had a latte and a scone...or at least some Lucky Charms.

Brought to you by the folks at General Mills.  ;)

I think people drink blue milk and eat fruit, but definitely pass on the death sticks.

Hey now, Luke eats granola bars and Yoda eats oatmeal! At least on Dagobah.

Jabba eats frogs... Chewie eats dead animals?

Yeah my sighting today was my first as well. All Targets have either bare shelves or old Vintage figures at full price. Wal-Marts don't even have shelf space for Black Series, and some I've seen don't even have Star Wars in the planogram... and TRU is, well, TRU. They're good with their two restocks per year.

Haven't even seen any sign of 6 inch figs either.

Found most of Wave 1 at a Wal-Mart this morning, literally hidden behind a cardboard WWE aisle display. Luke and Padme were there so I snagged them, and will probably put an order in for Wave 2 online sometime soon. Cardbacks were glued on pretty well on all of the figures, looking like most of our usual standards.

Only other figures I saw were Vader, the Scout and the Clone Pilot.

- Rebel Fleet Trooper: just needs the holster I think
- General Lando: terrible cloth cape, terrible headsculpt
- C-3PO: I liked the deco for the most part despite it not being vac-metalized. It just should have used the BAD sculpt from the beginning
- Royal Guard: Like Lando, the cloth outfit was a bit excessive, and could have been scaled down a little bit, or at least designed similar to the original Vintage version
- Yoda: design it more like that awesome SA Clone Wars version. Odd that that version of Yoda is the most definitive figure of the character that we've gotten since... the 90s? I don't see how the CW figure had ball joints out the wazoo and was perfectly scaled while the TVC Yoda had cut-corner limbs

I have others, but they're nitpicks at this point (like Bespin Han's vest being a separate piece)

Yeah apparently there are shoe collectors out there. Apparently they release new versions of shoes each year like cars, and people obsess with collecting them like we do with each rereleased Darth Vader figure.

Love those retro systems, my main problem with them is that the actual game cartridges are expensive to obtain. I picked up a USB controller a few months back and use that to play my illegally downloaded emulators on my PC, which is good enough for me.

As for the Wii U, I'll probably snag one once the new Smash Bros. comes out.

I can't wait to get that speeder with Maul and the Maul Mandalorians. I'm planning on picking it up next month when LEGO has the Blue Clone giveaway

Read on Twitter from a follower that the Starhopper has started hitting Walmart. Anyone else seen it?

I actually saw it at a Walmart here in Austin late last week.

Those Recruitment sets look... eh. Might just snag them for the minifigs and extra parts. I'm all over that Royal Guard battle pack though. Also note the new deco for Chewie!

2014 Wave 1 Sets Revealed

Very PT heavy, which means my wallet will be happy!

Usually those displays are sent back to LEGO. I've read stories about managers giving them away and LEGO reps heavily fining them for it.

Yes please, if you don't mind. All of my local stores have abandoned the MU line, and haven't even restocked other Marvel lines in ages.
