They're seriously kicking this new line off with a repacked Cap and repacked Iron Man?

Got my Slave I on Christmas Eve, and opened it along with my other presents on Christmas Day. This thing is AWESOME. Worth $100? No. $70? You betcha, and I really feel like a thief after getting it for $35.

Literally my only complaints are:

- The wings are a bit rubbery and don't stay fully rotated in "flight mode"
- Carbonite Han is a reeeeeeally tight fit in the "Cargo Hold," to the point where I'll probably never put it in there again
- Lack of a handle for play. The AOTC Jango Slave had one, and it would have been cool here, but no biggie.
- Lack of a pack-in figure. I would have taken that 5 POA Battle Pack Boba, the new one, TVC Boba... any sort of Boba. Again, this kind of goes back to that value thing. You can't have a Slave I without the Fett man!

All really minor complaints when you look at the big picture though. I love the rotating cockpit feature that they took from the LEGO versions of the ship, and the thing is HUGE. Practically doubles as a base/hideout. Can't wait to fly this thing around with the BMF.

Anyone have a chance to see Anchorman 2? I caught a showing this weekend, and although I went in expecting a crappy sequel, it might have been worse than what I expected. Rehashed, less funny jokes from the first one, and cameos and roles from all of the current and unfunny SNL cast members. The best parts we've already seen in the trailers, mainly Ron's black female boss and dinner with her family. I would recommend watching it on cable or Netflix or something for free though.

I think again, it all comes down to value. The AOTC Slave I came in a set with what, a Jedi Starfighter and 3-4 figures? All for $100. For the same price, the Amazon ship was just the ship in fancy retro packaging. It just reeked of greed, and should have been $70 to begin with, heck maybe even a few dollars lower. Or throw in a Boba Fett, a Stormtrooper, Bespin Guard... make it feel like we're getting more than just a repainted ship for $100, ya know?

Caught a matinee today and I guess I'm the only one here who was disappointed... the 2.5 hours actually did fly by quick but I think I'm mostly let down by the cliffhanger. I could have sworn somewhere they were ending it with the death of Smaug and having the Bilbo/Thorin conflict as the center of Part 3 but what we got felt more like 2.5 hours of "good guys find out who the bad guys are and don't do anything"

As is normally my luck after making a post on here, I found a Xavier at Target today. So I think since this line is ending/changing names, all I have left to track down from my personal want list is Miles Morales Spidey.

Is there any chance of me being able to get a MU Professor X anymore? Marvel stuff is only stocked at one TRU in town, and I use the word "stocked" very, very loosely. No Marvel stuff at any other places.

Spotted a fresh batch of Wave 2 at Target yesterday... well one of each. Targets here have been really picky about stocking these. Either that or they sell fast. Either way, I ended up passing, again. Boba and Han are really cool, but I keep asking myself every time I see this line, can I really afford to "start over" with a new scale at this point?

Yeah I just ordered a low price Slave I so I'm going to hold out on this until after the holidays. Good price though, and I've never had a scaled TIE in the collection (except for a TIE Bomber I sold long ago)

Got my second set ($23) in the mail last week. I figure two is enough with these, as I really just want more Battle Droids and will probably be able to get them individually for pretty cheap in the coming months. Sandtroopers and TIE Pilots would be cool too but I have so many at this point that I'm basically buying them for diversity in the ranks.

Finished Wave 1 thanks to Amazon's prices... kinda. I've decided to skip troops and repeat characters and basically pick up the main characters individually until I see a case I'm 100% happy with. For Wave 1 I bought Luke and Padme back in August and just ordered a $3 Biggs and Anakin from Amazon. I'll get the Vader and the Clone Pilot in some other case, or just get them individually for cheap too.

Got one for $34.99, and threw in some $3 Black Series figs to get the free shipping. Patience is a gamble with this hobby, but sometimes it pays off!

Back in stock for $14.99, but will take 1-2 days to process.

Haven't jumped on one at $14.99 yet, I feel like two is enough but I'll probably break.

Yeah I feel like two is enough but with a bunch of Black Series figures from Wave 1 going down to $3.50 at the same time, I feel like I HAVE to order a bunch of stuff.
