Next up for me: Ewok Village during Double VIP Points next month

Finally scratched that one off the list this afternoon at the local LEGO Store. Double VIP Points started this weekend and last until the end of the month, and I had $50 built up from previous purchases throughout last year. So I got the set for $200, and got another $20 in VIP rewards that I'll save for either the Slave I or Sandcrawler.

Oh, and if anyone hasn't snagged the Ewok Village yet, the cashier said he had heard rumors of a retirement in the near future...

I haven't bought the house yet either, but that Kwik E Mart is tempting. Hard to gather the money when there are multiple large Star Wars sets every year. Love that they included the secret vegan garden on the roof. I appreciate the Jasper reference too, but that really should have been a minifigure instead of a sticker.

The minifigs though, I'm all in. Simpsons Series 1 is the only minifigure set I've completed 100% so I need them all.

Yeah, I might not be able to get to 3PO until this weekend but that will leave me more time to take some detailed pictures of everything, and in better lighting haha.

There was some other stuff from the Stormtrooper I wanted to photograph too, like the extra hands and blasters. I think Revo's E11 is more accurate, since aren't those supposed to be fairly small? I'll see if it fits in Chewie's hands, which should be a good indicator. Revo Stormie also comes with one of those longer rifles the Sandtrooper uses, though I don't have that figure so I can't compare the two rifles.

As for sculpt, yeah I like the Revo one better. Seems to be based off of ANH's design, whereas the TBS is based on either ROTJ or a combo of the two. Seems like all of the other Japanese Stormtroopers use similar sculpts, I know the Medicom MAEFX Stormie looks just like the Revo.

Excited to open 3PO too... one of the stock images shows you can pull the limbs off (actually something that happens a lot with these Revo figures, they fall apart easily haha) AND he comes with a mouse droid. I'll throw in some pictures of Vader too, his accessories are neat and the lightsaber a lot more thick and sturdy than the TBS offerings. The cape just makes it tough to pose.

Revoltech Stormtrooper Album

I'm obviously not much of a photographer, nor does my apartment make a good studio, but here are some quick pictures I snapped. Mostly some comparison shots with the Black Series Stormtrooper, and a size comparison with the few Black Series figures I have.

With the limited time I've had to mess around with the Stormtrooper, the worst part is that the arms are too short and the legs are too long (as you can see it's REALLY tall, almost as tall as the Revoltech Vader). Now that I've been able to compare everything, the Revo Vader might be a bit on the short side too. That one took about a week of posing to grow on me; the cape is definitely wild, but the sculpt is amazing.

I'll open 3PO (sorry for the typo on Twitter :-[) tomorrow and snap some pictures too. Kinda wishing I had snagged the Black Series R2-D2 when I was seeing it everywhere so I could snap some comparison pics, but I'll just have to wait for the Revo R2 to get here next month.

If anyone has specific requests for pictures (poses, etc.), let me know and I'll try my best to add them when I photograph the 3PO, I kinda half-assed this album.

Picked up the following sets yesterday:

- T-16
- Stormtrooper Dropship
- Royal Guard/DST Battle Pack
- Snowspeeder Microfighter
- AT-AT Microfighter
- Hoth Han minifigure (had a coupon from the LEGO Calendar, any Star Wars purchase at a LEGO Store got him for free; this is the same brown coat one offered during May 4th a few years back)

The Microfighters were particularly frustrating buys because TRU had a BOGO last week but I couldn't find any stores that stocked the AT-AT. In fact, I got one of the last ones at the LEGO Store too. Didn't know that one was so hard to find? ???

Next up for me: Ewok Village during Double VIP Points next month

I liked this week's episode a lot more than last week's... interesting to see that half of the group wanted to trust the guy while the other half didn't. Could become interesting later.

Flare zombie was cool, and a genius way to get light into that situation. But who shot off that other flare, and why did Aaron totally freak out? Guess that will be answered at some point. They're still in Alexandria in the comics, and set up a trade network with other safe zones, so I could see them spending a half season clearing out trade routes and meeting new people, setting up Negan's first TV appearance. They could easily do a Governor style TV arch with him that could easily use up 2 seasons, but at that point they would still be almost caught up with the comics.

Apparently there is some backlash over having gay characters kiss, and people are boycotting the show now. ::) Homosexuals are gay!

I don't HATE the design, I'm just having a really hard time getting excited for the movie.

I dunno, I still think VOTC/Early Bird Chewie is one of the best figures Hasbro has ever put out. Really looking forward to this one, unlike a lot of rehashes.

HLJ has the Revoltech C-3PO in stock! Bundled my preorder with my Revo Stormtrooper, so in a week or two I'll have some new goodies to go with the Vader.

I'll probably pass on the movie sets but I liked what I saw from the Spidey comic stuff. Pretty pumped to be getting Carnage and Miles Morales in a $12.99 set, and Sandman and Green Goblin looked nice.

Ye gads what a boring episode. I've come to expect slow episodes here and there, but this was Season 2 farm level boring.

I know they weren't going for this reaction but when Rick said they were The Walking Dead, I laughed and thought of that Family Guy skit where everyone gets excited when the characters in a show/movie say the title of said show/movie.

Finally got around to opening my Revoltech Vader earlier. It's great... the sculpt is VERY well done, and the removable helmet was a nice touch I didn't know they were doing (just the "top" part from ESB's meditation chamber is removable). The ball-jointed cape is really wonky, as are the joints, but the more I play mess around with it, I'm sure I'll get used to them. I don't own Hasbro's 6 inch Vader because I never liked the look of it, and I still think this blows Hasbro's version out of the water even with the weirdness. I also have the MAEFX and SH Figuarts Vaders preordered so I'll do a comparison this summer when I should have all of them.

I've got the Revo Stormtrooper sitting in HLJ's private warehouse and need to get that shipped out... can't wait to get 3PO, R2, and Fett too!

I really don't need to start collecting a whole new scale of stuff, but I had a TON of the Batman TAS figures as a kid so these will likely be nostalgia purchases.

Yeah, that looks... okay. I end up skipping a lot of the UCS stuff that doesn't have Minifigures anyway, but I'm glad the people who wanted this are finally getting it.
