There are none here in VA either, kind of a screw.  >:(

Just got around to un boxing this tonight and setting it up with the companion piece on my display shelf. I really like it! It's a nice centerpiece to build around. It makes it very easy to pose Rey and Kylo in full on battle mode. Makes me wish they would do more stuff like this, would have been perfect for the Wampa set.

Agreed, and I think it is a result of them going back to doing their own thing without the support of Funko. So we wind up with $15 MOTU figures you can only buy online, and $45 vinyl carrying cases. I'm kinda glad now there is not much else on the horizon with these guys.

I was able to order the carrying case and Japanese packaged 3-pack without any trouble. $45 each though, ouch.  :-\

Dalai Lama is a great point. An aged, learned, spiritual wise man who happens to be Asian. He is no more a racist caricature than the Ancient One. It's not like they drew the guy with buck teeth and thick glasses. There is a long tradition of the learned wise man in eastern mysticism. I just don't think the character as was originally written was so awful that they had to totally reimagine him.

The Tibet thing is something I had not considered, but I feel like they could just be vague about it and say "the Himalayas" or something like that. That's not anything that has to be called out specifically and doesn't impact the story either way.

Definitely a lot more aspects to this issue than you would think at first glance. One way they could have side stepped the whole thing would have been to skip the origin story altogether and just hit the ground running. Shake up the usual formula.

Is the Case not available until 7pm?

Yep, I don't even see a listing for it on their web store yet. I will check back a few minutes before just in case.

Wait, the Power Loader's going to be available today?

Also, by any chance are you thinking about ordering carrying cases to the point where you might end up with an extra of the exclusive alien?

Hmm, now that you mention it, I guess that wasn't actually one of the items teased. Also MIA is the rumored Nostromo kitbash play-set.

I'm definitely getting the case but will be keeping the alien - sorry. 1 is enough for me.

Curious to see in hand pics from people lucky enough to hit up their brick and mortar store already...

It's Alien Day...LV-426.  ;D

Time to head over to Super 7's website and order up a bunch of new swag including that carrying case and power loader 3-pack.

Yay new toys!

I was excited to find this set over lunch today at our lone remaining K-Mart.  :) Can't wait to assemble it tonight.

Now done with 6" collecting for awhile it would seem...

Pretty kick-ass stuff last night...did not disappoint at all, well much.

Where was Tristane when he got killed? Still on the boat? In King's Landing? I guess the Sand Snakes had a fast ship? (And could I love those three girls anymore?!?!)

Brienne and Pod to the rescue was a rousing moment too. You gotta get Sansa out of the North though...Castle Black is not the answer. Take her to the Riverlands!

Man, I really hope Ed brings back that Giant.

That was some serious nastage at the end there. WTF is she waiting for to bring back Jon Snow anyway?!?  :P

Decisions, decisions...watch a taut, well crafted show with top notch writing and rich, well developed characters, or stick with this thing.   :D

Thrones it is!

Will I care enough to even watch this on-demand?  ???

Best frickin' Super Bowl halftime show ever too!

Prince Dead at 57

Holy ****!   :o

Huge loss, crazy talented guy, very happy to have seen him live a few years back...amazing show.

I foresee a lot of purple armbands and possibly a state holiday in Minnesota. Dude was legitimately loved, and with good reason.

RIP my man.

I suspect Snoke is off-limits until they show him in person, mostly because they want to keep people guessing about his actual size. I still think it would be awesome if he really did turn out to be a giant. Because out of the limitless variety of life in the universe, why would anyone expect everyone to be roughly the same size?
