My Favorite Things and Hallelujah (the Cohen song) being "Christmas Songs"

Ditto, also The Peanuts theme. Plenty of actual Christmas songs on that CD!

I got mine in the mail yesterday. Pretty nifty set, packaging is larger than I expected. Really hoping we get the rest of D-Squad someday!

Picked up another Snowtrooper today at GameStop, think I am good on those guys now. Can't wait to pick up Chirrut and Baze in the near future.

Yeah, I saw it in 3D and was impressed. I think there is a crispness there you don't always notice with the 2D versions. Especially with the space battles.

Moroff definitely was on Jedha - he showed up with Bodhi when they first introduced him. I don't think any of those other guys even made it off but if they did I doubt they would have gone on to Yavin.

After sleeping on it I feel pretty sure this is now at least my fourth favorite SW movie after the OT. Absolutely destroys the prequels. It's like the darker, more grown-up SW movie I've always wanted.

But im sleepy!  :P

This set dropped to $49.95 on Amazon so I finally bit the bullet this morning and snagged one. It may go lower but this price seemed decent enough to me. Always nice to get a few new TCW figures!

Incredible...felt a little long but I had to pee pretty bad for the last hour so I'm sure that didn't help.

Might as well get the tiny quibbles out of the way first: could have done without the Walrusman/Evazan cameos, but all the other ones were terrific I thought. Kinda wish the Tantive escape had not been quite so obvious because that sort of destroys the whole plausibility of being on a diplomatic mission.

Was it just me or did Vader's neck look really large? Maybe it was the 3D.

Really wish I could have seen what became of the Ghost at the end there, but it was a lot to take in the first time around. I loved the General Syndulla page.

Vader bring a total badass was awesome to behold. Tarkin they pulled off surpringly well I thought. Pretty much all the fighting was terrific, from the hand to hand stuff to the aerial dogfights.

Glad we got to actually see the Deathtroopers in action! And happy to see Edrio Two Tubes was more than just a Zuvio type character. I thought he was cool as hell.

Kind of a bleak ending but I loved that they went that way. Pretty much lived up to all my expectations. I want more toys!

Got my tickets for the 10:15pm 3D showing tonight! Excited!

Pretty good way to go out, too.  Playing hockey with your son when you're almost 70... a lot better than years in a hospital.

Not such a great memory for the son though.  :(

Bad stuff happening around the holidays is always especially sad I think.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 2

Anyone still looking for this group should check their local Barnes & Noble. Found this wave there myself yesterday at 25% off too.

Me too! Plus an extra 10% off for members. I got two for eleven bucks.

Ha ha, in that case someone wasted their money because I went back the next morning when they opened and they hadn't been picked up yet so they handed both of them right over to me.  ;D


Yeah, all the ones here have the older figures too, they just put the new guys right out beside them. Guy said they were arriving in a big box with other items, only 2 per store. Odd.

My persistence did pay off ultimately though as I found both Revan and the Snowtrooper at a different location after work. Had to look all over, they had 6"'figures in three different locations. Luckily while I was waiting in line to ask the cashier I spied them up near the registers and pounced.

I'd still like another Snowtrooper but I think I need a break from that store for a couple of days.

A few more of my local Gamestops showed quantity for the Revan wave today so I got my hopes up.

The first store had two Leias.  ::)

The second store didn't have anything new out. I asked and the guy said he had two on hold for someone. He opens the drawer and shows me Revan and the Snowtrooper: the exact two I need. I've been going into this guy's store for two weeks looking for these and never once did he mention there was an option of holding these if they came in. There's no separate listing for this SKU on their website and none of the figures are listed out individually so I figured there was no way to put them on reserve. Rats!  >:(

At least I got within a few feet of them.

Watching Spencer get publicly gutted was probably the high point of the season for me so far. I liked the other gal they shot though.

For whatever reason I assumed the spy was probably someone from Oceanside coming to check them out. Otherwise it will be kinda hard to bring them back into the mix unless that whole episode was just a big time-wasting red herring. (Which is entirely possible)

The whole Aaron/note thing seemed pretty thin to me.

What was up with the Kingdom dude's secret forest trailer? And the milk bottles for that matter? Was he making Molotov cocktails out there or something? That guy is a mess.

I liked it but am an admitted sucker for anything Nightwitchy. Figured we might get an obligatory Talzin cameo but I guess she is for reals dead now.

Pretty sure we will see that dark saber again. Always liked that thing.

Sucks they don't know it's Tattooine they need to find. Maul should be there in about twenty minutes, and we all know in SW you always immediately find the person you are looking for no matter where you land on the planet. That should be some throw down.

Bendu would be a huge pain to try and customize but I want one more and more for my Rebels display.
