Yeah, pricey (the 3PO/R2 set ended up costing around $100, though that included the express overseas shipping I sprang for) but they really are worth every penny. And to be fair, most of the figures made have been helmeted characters or droids just like the model kits. Rey will be the first MAFEX human character, and the first non-SH Figuarts human character from any of these lines.

Hasbro made a HUGE mistake with their product drought from 2013-2015. They had a 2 year head start on these Japanese companies making the 6 inch figures, and they did nothing to lock the American market down. There was nothing to buy on the pegs, so I figured what the heck, I'll blow a spare $40 on one of these figures... they blew me away and I've never looked back.

I get that Hasbro is, as Jesse said, the budget line, and they've made a lot of figures the Japanese companies will probably never touch, but there are often times where you have to ask if a Hasbro figure is worth the $20 while I've never felt like I wasted money on the Japanese products.

Stopped in my local comic book store this afternoon and they had some new Marvel figures in stock. They had Wave 3 with Morbius, Rogue, Hydro-Man, and Quasar. Then they had Wave 2 of the Comic Packs, which I had never even seen or heard of before.

I ended up grabbing the Spidey/Kaine set and Morbius for my Spidey collection.

Got my MAFEX C-3PO and R2-D2 in the mail this morning. Woah baby! The Revoltech versions are great, but these might be better.

This should be a fun fireworks show... people on Reddit (through Yakface) are voting for figures like Rey with gloves and scarf, or the Heavy Gunner FO Stormtrooper. Totally different mindset from us over here. ;)

Either way, I look forward to not being able to find the winning figure in stores.

Slightly modified list from last year:

1. Lando Calrissian (Bespin) with removable cape and E-11 blaster
2. Emperor's Royal Guard with pike and rifle
3. Pre Vizsla with Darksaber and removable helmet
4. 4-LOM
5. Dengar
6. Zuckuss
7. Count Dooku with lightsaber and Force lightning
8. Grand Moff Tarkin with Interrogation Droid
9. General Grievous with cape and lightsabers
10. Battle Droid with blaster

Exclusive: Marvelís New Iron Man Is a Black Woman

This will be a fun 6 months of Internet drama before Marvel reverts everything back to normal!

Finally got a Resistance Rey from Amazon as well. I paid $10 for both the Rey and the Han, but beats the 3rd party prices online, and it's nice to have those unicorns finally out of the way since they are clearly not going to be shipping to my area.

Was picking up some stuff at WM over the weekend and saw they had the First Order Snowspeeder on clearance for $29, so I grabbed one.

Weren't there rumors that there was a new Kylo coming with the Rogue One figures? I'd wager this is it.

Like the Obi-Wan, I think the Japanese MAFEX Kylo will have the Vader helmet, but it'd be nice to have the Hasbro version for a decent price too haha.

This looks great! Shame it will be tough to track down for a reasonable price.

I know the Ben is coming separately in the regular line, and the Japanese MAFEX R2-D2 comes with the Leia hologram, so I'll be set there. But still... haha

Just picked up Chameleon on Amazon for $11. That wave never showed up here, surprise surprise, and I actually found out about it a week or 2 ago.

Amazon has 5POA TFA Han in stock... for $16. I bought one. :'(

I used some Discover Reward points to take a few bucks off, but I've spent far more than that looking around for the figure over the last few months, so it's good to be done.

IIRC the dementia was diagnosed in 2011 and she retired at the end of the 2011-12 season. So it happened pretty fast. Awful way to go out.

Picked up the LEGO TFA video game today, and got the FN-2187 minifig that came with the deluxe edition. I also got the Kylo Ren Shuttle polybag as a preorder bonus from Gamestop, along with a nifty poster of the box art.

With my luck, the Finn and Shuttle polybags will show up en masse at Target or something next week (they were the sole reason for me getting the game).

Deluxe Edition also comes with a FN-2187 Minifigure (sole reason I purchased the game :-[)

Other goodies include, as Jeff said, the Season Pass and an Empire Strikes Back character set. I think the PS4 version has some bonus exclusive goodies too, but I wouldn't know about that since I got the Xbox version.
