Saw about a dozen Flametroopers and a lone FN-2187 at TRU last night. Passed on everything though, but nice to finally see something new.

New Force Awakens MAEFX Figures Revealed

Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, C-3PO and BB-8

Yeah that Luke is awesome. Reminds me of the Resurgence of the Jedi Battle Pack Luke vs the 2004 VOTC Luke. Looks like the Heavy Armor Stormtrooper is exclusive to Bandai's online store as well, meaning it will be a pain to get for a decent price.

Phasma got here today (and apparently someone who runs the JD Twitter got theirs too). Here's a quick comparison shot of the Phasma vs the Black Series Phasma... not sure who got the scale wrong. :-\

Heads up that LEGO will be doing Double VIP points from March 7-22. Offer good in LEGO Stores and online.

That sucks, as I think the 3.75 inch Black Series Finn is the best figure of the set. I have the 6 inch version but haven't opened it but it seems like a decent figure too.

There's only one store locally that has pegs stocked like that, a local TRU that got a million cases of 6 inch Wave 2 but sold out of Phasmas and has everything remaining. This same store doesn't stock 3.75 inch figures, however. All of my other Targets and Walmarts have maybe 1-2 figures if that. Kind of odd to still be seeing the same empty pegs I've been seeing the last 3-4 years even after the popularity of the movie exploded.

Yeah Deadpool was awesome... favorite part was probably the Hugh Jackman mask

It spawned an awesome rant too by the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, where he basically said Hollywood will see an R rated movie making so much money and make a gazillion clones over the next few years that will all fail since Hollywood won't get what makes Deadpool unique in the first place.

It's really hard for me to care about either line when local stores don't stock it. Seriously, in the last year, Walmart only stocked the Avengers wave, Target got the BAF Hobgoblin wave, and TRU got the BAF Rhino wave. That's IT. And with 3.75 inch figures, Target got the wave with Black Widow, Beast and Sandman last Spring, and I think that's all I've seen in stores since late 2013.

Calling it now, Laura Dern will at some point have to turn a power grid on, where she finds Mace Windu's severed hand.

Eh, there used to be a time even 2-3 years ago when I would get worked up over the lack of product, but now I just figure that if Hasbro doesn't want my money, I'll gladly give it to toy companies that do. Hence my branching out into LEGO (which has been doing some outrageous price gouging lately), the Japanese SW collectibles, and other non-Star Wars toylines.

Found and purchased the Wave 3 variants of Kylo Ren and Rey at Target this afternoon. The differences are just enough that I don't mind dropping the extra cash for duplicates.

I learned my lesson from last year and will not be participating in any more Force Fridays. Amazon had everything at midnight anyway. Plus if Hasbro is going to only ship 1-2 cases of product to stores again, it's not worth taking a day off to drive around town coming up empty handed.

75098 Assault On Hoth album on Imgur

Yeah, this might be one of the worst sets in the history of the LEGO Star Wars line. It's just a mashup of four previous Hoth sets, outside of the Ion Cannon and Shield Generator (which both look awful... for $250 they couldn't get the right number of circles on the shield generator?).

The long rumored UCS Hoth set has finally been announced.

The modular design enables fans to customize their Rebel base configuration, including a Wampa cave and Wampa figure. The set features LEGO minifigure versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, and more. Available May 1 for $249.99.
