Cleaned out the last few remaining figures of interest at the area Targets today...Kylo, Guavian, TIE Pilot, etc. nothing left now but the "Final Five" : Zuvio, Finn, and Resistance/Snow/Flame troopers. Good luck getting rid of those guys!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Do You Have Pets?

We lost our 13 year old pug Trixie on Friday.  :'(

She would have been 14 in October, was still going strong, albeit less active the past few years. It happened while we were on vacation with the whole family too. Huge bummer, but still the same time thankful she was with us and not locked up in a kennel several hundred miles away.

The kids were really sad at first but seem to have bounced back quickly, bless 'em. The wife and I are still pretty broken up about it though, we got her shortly after we moved in together and she was there for our wedding, two daughters, and survived two major surgeries along the way, including the emergency removal of her gallbladder. (We are still paying for that one)

Happy we got to enjoy her for as long as we did, trying to focus on that and not the end. Also helps we still have another dog Howie we rescued a couple of years back who is still going strong.

But yeah, most upset I've ever been over losing a pet. Just a fixture in our lives suddenly gone...

RIP girl.  :(

I picked up the Aliens Ripley/Queen/Powerloader set from Kokomo Toys tonight for $25 shipped. Haven't seen this in any stores yet and according to Super 7 the MSRP on this thing is $30, so this seemed like a good deal.

Happy hunting!  :)

For crying out loud, if you know who it is, just say it. I hate that cagey bs. You just spoiled the surprise anyway no matter who it ends up being.  ::)

Finally picked up FN Stormtrooper since he was 30% off at the Disneystore. Looking forward to getting something new.  :)

I thoroughly enjoyed it.  That series was everything Super 8 failed at.

Ouch.

I was planning to watch this but I thought Super 8 was terrific, so maybe this is not for me.  ???

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One - U-Wing Starfighter

If five different companies can do 6" figures I don't see why another company can't step up and make properly scaled "SW vehicle collectibles" that are actually representative of the onscreen source material.

Hasbro can keep making their ****** under scaled Nerf toys, and we collectors can get stuff like The Ghost and Kylo Ren's shuttle that actually go with the figures we buy. WIN WIN!

I'm just spitballing here, I know all the factors that would combine to make this highly improbable. But I would be more than happy to shell out $100 or more for a quality Ghost, even if I had to have it shipped from Japan.

A couple of Targets here have hit 50% off clearance, so I have started grabbing cheap Kylos for some additional Knights of Ren. Also some extra Guavians because I just love those dudes. For $10 a pop I don't feel as guilty about that kind of stuff.  :P

Got this today in the mail from HTS...impressively fast. What a cool set, will probably leave in the box as I have with previous years' exclusives, but it will at least go on display. Melty Vader helmet rocks socks!

I have loved everything I've seen/heard about this movie so far, but that trailer did not make me excited for this movie at all. Weirdly unexciting mishmash of stuff. Maybe the fours hours of Olympics dulled my senses though...

Picked up 2 Landstrider sets at TRU today during my lunch break. I almost overlooked them because the box was WAY smaller than I had pictured in my head.

Looks like a really well done toy, excited for the rest now!

A commercial for a commercial during the Olympics.

I was going to post about that earlier, I saw it last night luckily enough. The scene with the shuttle blowing up on the landing pad was cool as hell...looking forward to the real deal tonight.
