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)

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Amazon Droid Factory Multi-Pack

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.

Spotted a lone Han in the wild today and almost made my first 6 inch purchase... but the Han had a bunch of paint smears on one of his cheeks. I've noticed that a lot in these 6 inch figures.

Just ordered a second set at the $23.99 price point. I just couldn't help myself at that price.

The set is not my favorite but I don't hate it, and I was happy with my original set at $30. Love the TIE Pilot, Sandtrooper and Geonosian, and Dooku's Droid and the BAD are great figures too. I'm also happy to get more red Battle Droids, as I am the only person who likes that redone Battle Droid (I think I got several sets from various BOGOs and clearances). Like Jesse said, the only real "bad" figure in the set is the Clone, due to the reasons he listed about Clone fatigue and such.

$60 is a good deal considering that figures are $10 plus individually but with multipacks, people are looking for a bit of a bargain. All but one of these figures are repaints. Easy to see why people would be hesitant at $60, but jump on it at $30 and below.

CGI looks terrible... not too fond of the designs of the villains either. They've already established that they aren't following a realistic" format so why not just make Rhino a giant roided up freak instead of a machine?

They've said there's far worse than the Governor in the world...  I'm interested in seeing what that is, and this could be it.

Right now in the comics they're dealing with a guy named Negan who carries around a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire that he calls Lucille. He's offed a number of main characters from the show, and I'm guessing the TV show will go in that direction.

They'd have to censor him up a lot for TV, but yeah, just as bad as the Governor.
