A local Walmart had a TON of LEGO sets on sale across all lines. Broke my "no PT rule" and snagged Anakin's ROTS Jedi Fighter and Grievous' wheelbike for $19 each (marked down from $25).

The $170 TIE was leaked out in a list on JTA (I think) a few weeks ago. Hope it's amazing for that kind of dough.

Terrible move, if true. We're talking about a guy who has directed ONE blockbuster movie, and like three total movies overall in his entire career. Yeah, that one blockbuster made a boatload of cash, it was a pretty bad movie when it comes down to the contents.

But hey, a random female character will probably die in a long, ridiculous, and overexaggerated manner, so we'll have that.

Is the Ant articulated or is it like that Clone Trooper/Gelagrub POS set from a few years back?

I mean I loved The LEGO Movie and all but these articles make it sound like this will be a comedy. Or am I the only one getting that vibe?

Stopped by a local comic shop over the weekend and they had a few of these figures out. I haven't bought any online because they don't seem to be selling cases for some reason. Anyway, I saw Batman, Catwoman, Joker, Two-Face, Mr. Freeze and Creeper. Ended up just getting Batman for now since the store wanted $25 a pop and a lot of the villains are $20 or less on Amazon.

The Batman is pretty cool though! The cape is made of a soft rubber material, and doesn't hinder the articulation at all. There are a ton of hidden accessories too, like extra hands, Batarangs, grapling hooks, even an extra "blowing in the wind" cape! Highly impressed with this line so far, and I can't wait to get my hands on the other figures.

I think that's my biggest problem with a lot of these EU figures... if they're together with their "own kind" they look great, but a standalone Revan or Sabine would be out of place among OT and PT figures.

Saw Terminator: Genisys last night. They did a decent job rebooting the franchise for the modern day, but it was pretty much like any other Hollywood big budget film these days... plot points spoiled in the trailers, crappy CGI, throwbacks to original movies to remind you they exist, and no true identity. (Like Jurassic World, there are times where the film doesn't take itself seriously at all, and the next scene it takes itself WAY too seriously)

Someone pointed me to the JediBusiness 6" poll results - they have Revan (Reborn) at #3 and Revan (NOT Reborn) at #6.  I don't even know what that means... ???

Been a while since I've played KOTOR... this has to be in reference to the swerve, right? Masked Revan vs Unmasked Revan? Because we'll never get an unmasked Revan unless Hasbro does one of those "you sculpted as a figure" events again.

Yeesh, the old one looks much better, almost as if it came right off of the screen. Hasbro really nailed that one. This new one looks like a disaster where they had too many cooks in the design kitchen. Way too compressed, if that makes sense.

Looks like the tail/bottom half of the "new" Jabba is the same as the Jabba Goo/Saga 04 Ultimate Jabba too.

This looks like a fine figure, very clean and crisp. Interesting that Jesse's had ball jointed wrists... I don't think any of the other 6 inch figures have them, but I'll double check mine later.

My list is more of personal wants, and was actually kind of hard to put together. I'll probably revise it a few times before the deadline. That was the main dilemma for me, do I use a vote on a main character that WILL be made or waste it on a minor character that won't?

As for 3PO, the Revoltech version is working fine for me.

1. Obi-Wan "Ben" Kenobi (ANH) with cloak, lightsaber, and crate (like the TLC figure had)
2. Emperor's Royal Guard with Pike and rifle
3. Grand Moff Tarkin with Interrogation Droid
4. R5-D4 with bad motivator
5. Snowtrooper with E-11 blaster
6. Count Dooku with lightsaber and Force lightning
7. Pre Vizsla with Darksaber and removable helmet
8. Admiral Ackbar
9. Lando Calrissian (Bespin) with removable cape and E-11 blaster
10. Battle Droid with blaster
