The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)

That was completely brilliant!

I got my order yesterday, the day after I placed it. I was amazed, I wish I could order every figure from  ;D Great experience! I really like the figure too, better than the original, IMHO. Looks great in the blacklight too. I love that sculpted skull under the dome!

Yeah, seems like a good time for me to bail on this line. I'm still mad they never re-stocked Darth Maul.

Why is it companies cant figure out more product means more profit?

Damn, for 58 and a half minutes that was the best episode ever.

And then they had to go and ruin it.

Damn you Hollywood writers!

Yeah, the Legends of Cthulhu figures would be another good comparison. That started out as a Kickstarter campaign too and the 4 basic figures still hover around $20 each many months later. I didn't have a problem with it because they are very well done and I appreciate supporting toys from a property I really enjoy. But no question it would be hard to keep up with if they were cranking stuff out as regularly as Hasbro.

No better place to stick this, but I saw a recent report about a 12" Fifth Brother figure. This was a pleasant surprise as I assumed Hasbro/Jakks were done with larger size Rebels figures. I liked the previous ones, wish they had seen fit to do Sabine or Hera.

For those of you like me who are annoyed at not being able to find this figure in stores, good news! It is back up In Stock on the Walgreens website.  ;D

I ordered two to get free shipping. SO HAPPY to scratch this one off The List. Walgreens is my least favorite store to stalk.

Now all I need from Santy Claus is an extra Shocktrooper and it's a happy Christmas all around.  :D

Yeah, I think you're definitely right about waiting these things out, Rob. Outside of the T2 line I don't think any of their lines have really gone up much if at all in value since their release. You can get complete runs of most of them for well below the $10 MSRP on eBay.

I'm happy with what I have to this point, I would probably be more selective if they were continuing to crank out product, but the lull now makes me feel like it won't be hard to keep up going forward.

Oh, and I finally picked up that Flocked Wolfman for $20 shipped from a BIN auction this weekend, so I am happy about that.  :)

I finally broke down and ordered this set last night. The way Hasbro exclusives have been going lately, I was worried once it sold out they would never get any more in.

That bit from Family Guy with Robert Loggia spelling out his last name was always funny to me.

Snap Wexley snd Snowtrooper Officer

I have got to wonder if Snap Wexley is Greg Grunberg's character.  JJ Abrams tries to get him in just about every project he's involved with, and I think he's a Resistance pilot in TFA.

What JJ Abrams projects has Grunberg ever been in? I don't recall him from Lost, Alcatraz, Cloverfield, Super 8, Star Trek etc. in fact I don't think I've ever seen him outside of Heroes. Just curious. I had no idea he had been cast in SW either, although that could be ok.

I saw Armor Up figures for $19.99 each at Kohl's tonight. It was so totally absurd, I could only shake my head.

I found Starkiller Base Kylo Ren at K-Mart today, thanks to a tip from a friend.  :) I found one with a snowier base to swap out for the one I got online. Now I can finally open this thing!

I hear you on the variants Rob. The T2 ones were really over the top. I'm still trying to get the last couple I need. I do sort of enjoy the chase though, and in general I'm a huge fan of the ReAction stuff, most properties anyway.

I finally broke down and picked up the full assortment of Fifth Element figures this week through various eBay auctions, averaged just under $5 a piece so not too bad at all. I see the Rocky Horror figures are now in stock at EE, so those are probably next.

Glad they are taking a long break in 2016 though, that was a major glut of product for earlier this year.

Awesome, thank for the reference pic Jayson, I am doubly psyched for this one now. Imperial repaints are a must though!
