Saw it tonight. The airport battle might be the coolest fight in recent movie history, and definitely in comic history. The casting was perfect, and even though there were 3984655672 characters, they all had their place and felt important.

Some good moments off the top of my head:

- Falcon and Bucky in the Beetle, and the nod of approval
- ESB being a "super old movie" (although Pete should know better than "ice planet")
- Black Panther in general
- Tony macking on Aunt May
- Tony Stank
- Ant Man trying to tear apart the IM suit and then tossing a mini fuel truck

I'm very much a novice to Lego's but I had been eyeing up the Death Star and by the time I decided to pull the trigger early this year, it had just been retired. Heard a new set is on the way and had been checking in at the Lego shop every so often.

Now, am I crazy? I checked in on the 4th (May) and it looks like all the prices increased about 30-50%. For example, the Final Dual set was running for $80, now it's $130. Sand crawler was $300. Now it's $450. What gives?

Is this online? Check to make sure you have the right country... sometimes it switches you to UK or Australia, which have insane prices.

Yep... one store in my area got bundles of 3.75 inch Wave 3 and 6 inch Wave 2. The rest are completely empty, like they've been for months.

I found FN-2187 the other day. Still need a handful of 5POA figures and I can be done with the line.

I finally caved and got an Armor Up Kylo Ren yesterday. I plan on putting the head and scarf on my spare Black Series Kylo, just need to sand down the neck peg on the Black Series Kylo and hope it doesn't have too much of a peahead look.

I too spotted these at a local Target yesterday. They were placed in between the vehicles and 12 inch figures on the shelf under the pegs, and I almost missed them.

The Original Trilogy / Boba Fett - ROTJ Big Baddie?

Lucasfilm Veteran Reveals Details on Original ROTJ Plans

Apparently ROTJ was originally supposed to deal solely with rescuing Han from Jabba, with Boba Fett being the big baddie of the film. Then we would have gotten Episodes 7-9 which would have been Luke taking down Vader and Palpatine. Pretty interesting stuff!

This will be 40% off on Amazon starting at 6pm as a May 4th Lightning Deal. Not sure what time zone that is.

Mine was actually $36... sold by a 3rd party and fulfilled by Amazon. The lightning deal was $10 off. Not much of a discount, but this never showed up locally, and it was still a few bucks off MSRP, which was good enough for me.

PM sent... don't really need this, but I have the others, so why not.

Thanks for snagging them, Pete!

Apparently it went on sale at midnight EST and sold out overnight, even with a 1 per customer limit.

Just snagged Luke and the Wampa on a lightning deal on Amazon, and used some Discover cashback points, knocking the cost down to $15.

Finn and Rey are exactly the same, outside of Rey having the lightsaber and hilt. Not sure about BB-8.

Stopped by the local LEGO Store for the May the 4th deals... to my shock, they had all of the sets included in the sale in stock (the store is small and doesn't have a great track record of having stuff in stock over the last year). I ended up just getting the Battle of Takodana set for $47.99, which is around what the set should cost to begin with. I also grabbed the Resistance Battle Pack for $10.50, which got me the Heavy Armor Stormtrooper promo minifigure. I debated getting the Resistance Transport for $55.99 but didn't want to spend that much cash.

TL;DR - TFA sets are overpriced.

Stumbled upon this set tonight at a local Walmart while looking for TBS Wave 4. A nice surprise! Rang up at $24.86, and the store had 7 of them.
