Just puttin' this out there...you Minnesota cats seem to be blessed with a lot of Green Helmet Resistance Troopers. I would gladly trade any of the new Wave 5 figures for a greenie, PM me if interested. ;)

I just want to see those pictures from the "Judgement At Nuremberg" Toy Fair going on right now. They've got 6" Rogue One figures on display! Schwing!

( I know photos are technically prohibited but it is 2016, come on millennials)

And of course as soon as I put in the online order I find these in person. Walmart had like 5 cases of this wave out this morning, exactly what I always wanted to see stores do rather than this one measly case at a time nonsense. Props to them for helping me get everything I wanted in one fell swoop.  :)

We are getting stiffed badly on Wave 5 here...I finally broke down and ordered 2 flame troopers off Amazon this morning.

I'm not sure what the snow totals are here so far because the wind is so freaking brutal it just blows everything all around in huge drifts, but we have to be north of 18" so far. Crazy storm for this part of the country. I love it though...as long as we have power.  :)

I have two daughters and the question for me isn't so much about boys playing with girl figures, but girls playing with girl figures. What if my girls want a 20" Sabine or 12" Hera? If you can't find a way to connect with that part of your audience you're just not trying IMO.

Just like JJ Abrams wanted a diverse cast to represent the world we live in today, I think it's fair to expect equal representation on the toy aisles.

I've never liked the idea of gender specific toys or that kind of marketing anyway. Instead of resigning yourself to "only boys care about these toys" maybe try figuring out a way to engage other demographics too. It's good business and it shows a respect for the property as well as the customer I think.

Hey, there's a Princess Leia figure coming! Based on how long it's taking to even get the 5th Brother figure out, I would expect this sometime in 2018.  :-\

Malachor is also referenced in the TFA Visual Dictionary as the source of inspiration for Kylo Ren's lightsaber design. ("Scourge of Malachor"...)

Free shipping today only @ Disney Store online...finally caved and ordered Rey with lightsaber. Feel stupid buying her twice but I guess I can make my money back selling my original at some point down the line.

Found an unexpected OT Stormtrooper on the pegs at Walmart and it rang up for only $9...got to love that. Must have been a return or random in-store find.

Still no sign of the Jango wave here.  :(

Judith might be a much more effective tool to paint Negan as a monster than just about anything else.

Better her than Glenn!

I found a couple of these at Walgreens last night. They were on a tiny display on the side of an endcap, away from the toy aisle. It made me happy to finally see these for sale in a store.  :)

Count me in for sure...these things look great!
