A friend in FL picked up a Poe and unmasked Kylo for me. I'm still debating how much I really want to pay $30 for a tiny light saber.  :-\

I finally found the last two things I was looking for - a Hux with good eyes and the variant unpainted neck Snowtrooper. Completeness!  ;D

SW 6" stuff is on clearance at Gamestop now...I picked up a Han/Tauntaun and Speeder Bike Deluxe set for $15 each. Hard to resist at that price!

Looks like all the WD building sets have gone on clearance at Target and Walmart. I picked up a few more prison cells for $6.48, and Dale's RV for an astounding $14.98!

Looking forward to starting a cool diorama with all these next this year.

Made a flurry of toy runs the past 2 days in the hopes of finding another Snowtrooper and a Hux with better eyes. Ended up finding (and buying) another TIE Pilot, another Asty, and 2 more Shocktroopers. I finally did find a lone Snowtrooper on the pegs at Walmart too, so that was nice.

Apparently there is an "unpainted neck" Snowtrooper variant I need to track down now as well. Both of mine have the proper painted neck.   :P

I finally found this whole wave today after work.  :) I only grabbed the 3 from the new movie, but the paint apps were all spot on I'm happy to say. And they look great!

Just when I'd moved on and decided not to worry about these, I wandered into a TRU last night and found all three of them.  They had a few of each.  I'm perfectly happy picking up exclusives at normal retail prices.

Awesome Rob, glad you found these!

I finally caved and picked up the Rocky Horror figures off eBay for $9 apiece shipped. The only one not available was Frank, so I went onto Gamestop's website and found one at a local store they are now holding for me.  ;D

Curious now if/when we will get a whiff of any new product from these guys in 2016.

Lemmy of Motorhead  Ace of Spades!

Holy ****! How did I miss this? Should have been front page news everywhere!

Although I was never keen on his fondness for Nazi memorabilia, his contributions to metal are undeniable. Eat the rich!

I found the Hux/Asty/Snowtrooper Wave today too - at Walmart. I was beginning to think we were in some kind of weird toy vortex here, since everywhere else seemed to be getting these at the same time. I really like Asty, the Snowtrooper is sort of meh after getting the TRU exclusive, and Hux' face is just plain weird.

Been a busy few weeks for this line - I love it though!

I saw this Yakface FB post about the 6" scale Special Forces TIE Fighter being on sale at Target stores for $49.09.  Has anyone here been able to get that deal?  I hope it's a widespread sale, and reports from numerous stores would certainly be encouraging.

There is no sign of that sale anywhere around here. And I have been looking everywhere  >:(

I wish they would honor their other stores' clearance sales.

I was happy to have caught the episode last night. The "raining blows" line always cracks me up.  :D

I found this whole wave at Walgreens over lunch today.  ;D They were on an endcap SW display up front, not in the regular toy aisle. Still no sign of their exclusive Vader figure. #Fail

I walked into TRU today and found a single B&W Frankenstein hanging on the pegs and after poking around I also found a single B&W Wolfman as well. Those were the only two they had, which was perfect because those were the only two I needed. These worked out a lot better for me than I initially expected.  :)

Also bought Leatherface for $10 off eBay.

No - the back story is that apparently they moved the senate from Coruscant to Chandrilla, and then from Chandrilla to Hosnian Prime - the Hosnian system is the one that got fried, which Poe mentions. Coruscant is safe.

Thank you, I do remember the Chandrilla bit from Aftermath, but wasn't aware it had moved again after that.

Was the Republic/Resistance totally unaware they were building this massive planet sized weapon? One would assume that would take many years to complete. Seems like a hard secret to keep.
