This is apparently now on the Disney Parks app for $12.99

That's quite a haul. I was honestly surprised to hear the Hoth UCS set did so well in sales, since it has the lowest rating on LEGO Shop's website.

If you don't mind me asking, Pete, how much did the Space Slug set set cost you? I had heard they were going for a few hundred dollars due to the scarcity (and $150 MSRP).

Disney Infinity Canceled

Snatch those Star Wars figurines up while you can.

Finally got my hands on my HTS shipment over the weekend from a few weeks ago... at least the figures that didn't sell out while they were in my cart. ::)

Anyway, the FO Heavy Armor/Squad Trooper Stormtrooper... the heavy armor can easily be removed and placed on the Black Series FO Stormtrooper. It looks a little weird on the SA Stormie due to the ball jointed abdomen, but it's a perfect fit.

Saw it tonight. The airport battle might be the coolest fight in recent movie history, and definitely in comic history. The casting was perfect, and even though there were 3984655672 characters, they all had their place and felt important.

Some good moments off the top of my head:

- Falcon and Bucky in the Beetle, and the nod of approval
- ESB being a "super old movie" (although Pete should know better than "ice planet")
- Black Panther in general
- Tony macking on Aunt May
- Tony Stank
- Ant Man trying to tear apart the IM suit and then tossing a mini fuel truck

I'm very much a novice to Lego's but I had been eyeing up the Death Star and by the time I decided to pull the trigger early this year, it had just been retired. Heard a new set is on the way and had been checking in at the Lego shop every so often.

Now, am I crazy? I checked in on the 4th (May) and it looks like all the prices increased about 30-50%. For example, the Final Dual set was running for $80, now it's $130. Sand crawler was $300. Now it's $450. What gives?

Is this online? Check to make sure you have the right country... sometimes it switches you to UK or Australia, which have insane prices.

Yep... one store in my area got bundles of 3.75 inch Wave 3 and 6 inch Wave 2. The rest are completely empty, like they've been for months.

I found FN-2187 the other day. Still need a handful of 5POA figures and I can be done with the line.

I finally caved and got an Armor Up Kylo Ren yesterday. I plan on putting the head and scarf on my spare Black Series Kylo, just need to sand down the neck peg on the Black Series Kylo and hope it doesn't have too much of a peahead look.

I too spotted these at a local Target yesterday. They were placed in between the vehicles and 12 inch figures on the shelf under the pegs, and I almost missed them.

The Original Trilogy / Boba Fett - ROTJ Big Baddie?

Lucasfilm Veteran Reveals Details on Original ROTJ Plans

Apparently ROTJ was originally supposed to deal solely with rescuing Han from Jabba, with Boba Fett being the big baddie of the film. Then we would have gotten Episodes 7-9 which would have been Luke taking down Vader and Palpatine. Pretty interesting stuff!

This will be 40% off on Amazon starting at 6pm as a May 4th Lightning Deal. Not sure what time zone that is.

Mine was actually $36... sold by a 3rd party and fulfilled by Amazon. The lightning deal was $10 off. Not much of a discount, but this never showed up locally, and it was still a few bucks off MSRP, which was good enough for me.

PM sent... don't really need this, but I have the others, so why not.

Thanks for snagging them, Pete!

Apparently it went on sale at midnight EST and sold out overnight, even with a 1 per customer limit.
