Just got back from Jurassic World... I went in with pretty low expectations and ended up enjoying it. It mainly felt like someone saw Jurassic Park and thought "how can I make this even more violent?"

I'd rank it above 3 and maybe tied with or barely above Lost World, but they'll never recreate the magic of the first one.

Rumored List of TFA Toys Leaked

Looks like we're getting a Black Series Starfighter at the low price of $170...

$10 for something you would get out of one of those gumball machines outside of a grocery store? The $65 exclusive is cool but expensive.

Welp, this announcement settles the "XB1 or PS4" debate for me.

Sweet, thanks for the heads up Brent. Snagged Vulture, Ock and Miles Morales from HTS. I also found a Black Cat at a local grocery store last week (so far the one figure I've been willing to pay $12.99 for :( ) so I think I'm actually caught up on this line.

One of the best parts of the prequels. I really should check out some of his earlier work.

I took a film class in college, and one day we watched a documentary with Christopher Lee in it. Each time they show him, he's smoking from either a cigar or a pipe and just looks badass. It was pretty awesome.

This HAS to be some stupid way to get cheap sales with a bunch of "Han has a wife, CHECK IT OUT!" hype. Nothing more than a simple cliffhanger, I hope. You'd think Han would have a woman on every planet. :P

FBTB posted the following USD prices, which line up more with what we are used to seeing here in America:

75099 Rey’s Speeder, 193 pieces, $19.99
75100 First Order Snowspeeder, 444 pieces, $39.99
75101 First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter, 517 pieces, $69.99
75102 Poe’s X-wing Starfighter, 717 pieces, $79.99
75103 First Order Transporter, 792 pieces, $89.99
75104 Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle, 1004 pieces, $119.99
75105 Millennium Falcon, 1332 pieces, $149.99

The prices all appear to be "the usual" (ie closer to the 10-12 cent price per piece ratio) but it seems we're getting a small price hike too.

Assuming the figures are $10 each, four of them is $40, and the individual carded figures had more accessories
The Rancor was sold first at $40, then $50
Walmart Jabba was sold anywhere between $30 and $40 depending on the store, but even that came with the dias, pillows, Crumb, and Oola

Even if you count the Luke as a part of the Rancor package and not an individual figure it's still a bit of a ripoff. But like I said, I don't have a lot of the stuff in the set so I'll probably pick one up.

The Force Awakens LEGO set names leaked

75099 Rey's Speeder - 193 pieces - 29.99 €
75100 First Order Snowspeeder - 444 pieces - 54.99 €
75101 First Order Special Force Tie - 517 pieces - 76.99 €
75102 Poe's X-Wing Starfighter - 717 pieces - 99.99 €
75103 First Order Transporter - 792 pieces - 114.99 €
75104 Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle - 1004 pieces - 129.99 €
75105 Millennium Falcon - 1332 pieces - 164.99 €

Could be an expensive fall if I decide to collect the Sequel sets...

Have we gotten any official confirmation that the Jabba is new? I just remember all of a sudden websites were saying "yeah it's new" and all we've gotten is that one RAZR quality cell phone picture for proof. If anyone with knowledge actually came out and said Jabba was new, I missed it.

Ended up grabbing the Cantina Set online from LEGO Shop, and threw in some blind bag minifigs to get the free Winter Soldier minifig. Also last week I grabbed the new LEGO DK minifigure book with the Prototype Armor Boba Fett minifigure.

Got my Revo Boba Fett in the mail today. I'm hoping to have some time here soon to take a few pictures of these guys with their Hasbro counterparts (and compare them to the other Japanese figures)

Finished another great deal with Paul for some Disney stuff. Super speedy shipping and overall a pleasure to deal with.
