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!

Was this ever featured on the actual show?

Wave 2 finally hit here today and I picked up Kylo and FO Stormtrooper. Nice figures!

I believe the Scout Bomber was tweaked in both deco and design this time around. I never opened mine but I heard they addressed that weird gap in the back, or did something to the droid socket.

I agree it doesn't look good for the Ghost right now but man, that would be such a shame. It would be a great addition to the line if done right. Maybe now that they have been confirmed for a Third Season it might make it out of the parking lot next year.

There are still plenty of small ships they need to do, like the Imperial Speeder Bike. It's like they lost their whole budget or something. Disappointing.

Got my B&W Creature yesterday in the usual TRU bubble mailer, but it was thankfully intact.

Also picked up both of the "Final Battle" T1000 EE variants for less than $10 apiece off eBay - nice. I still need like six more of those T2 figures, too many variants, ugh.

Found Tyreese yesterday! Assist goes to Brickpicker, love that thing.

2015 was a great year for this line, keep up the good work next year!

Yep. I got tired of waiting for them to show up at Tuesday Morning or TJ Maxx. I still think it's bizarre that so few of these made it out.

Yeah, same here...very underwhelming. I figured at the least a bunch of the Alexandrians would bite it. What happened to the guy Rosita and Tara dragged off anyway?

I think the Glenn/Nicholas storyline pretty much settled the whole stupidity of redemption question. Carl is just buying himself more trouble covering for that little psycho. LOL at him telling the kid his dead Dad was an a-hole. Someone had to say it.

And yeah, stupidest TV moment of the year goes to Tara and Rosita handing over their guns to that Wolf. WTF were you guys thinking? That was only marginally more stupid than Daryl and Company getting out of the truck in the prologue.

And seriously, NEEGAN?!?! Dude's name should rhyme with former President Reagan! Neegan just sounds silly. Like having a bad guy named Percy or something.

To quote Mr Montoya in Princess Bride..."there will be blood tonight!"  ;D

Bring it on!

I was finally able to procure the elusive Target AT-DP with Driver exclusive over the holiday. Didn't even cost me an arm and a leg either. Man, I am happy to knock that one off The List.  :)

Cool - you too.  I'll let you know if by some chance I run into these... hopefully they end up all over the place.

Hey Rob, I was just able to order the nycc B&W creature figure from Toys R Us' eBay store. Only came to $15 shipped, not bad at all. I could not find listings for the other two yet but hopefully they will show up too. I'll post again if I can find those. Good luck!  :)

Vader is up for order but I am seriously conflicted about continuing on with this line. I don't see any end in sight and space is a real issue now.

Collector conundrum!

Black Friday looks to be a non-event for SW stuff this year. I've read all the ads (Walmart, TRU, Target, Gamestop, Walgreens, etc) and the only thing it appears we will see deals on are the 12" , 20" and 31" figures.

I guess Kohls has basic figures for $8.99, but I can't tell if its the Armor Up or BAW stuff. I guess neither of those is very appealing anyway.

I wish I lived in Canada because up there you will be able to get 6" SW figures for $10 a piece at Walmart. I would kill for a deal like that here.

Yeah, no sympathy here either. He sounds like a bitter old fart. I can't wait for the new movie to come out and be roundly lauded and see lots of praise heaped on JJ to help salt those old wounds.

People turned on you because A) you could not stop screwing with the original 3 films, which were perfectly fine as is; and B) you made 3 terrible, soulless CGI-laden movies that bore little to no resemblance to the OT. Some of the worst acting and dialogue in those movies I can ever remember. You got so rich and famous that it put you out of touch with your core audience and the basic principles of storytelling that built your little empire. (pun intended)

You know what else ex-boyfriends don't do? Give silly interviews about the breakup. The deal is done, let it go, the franchise is in much more capable hands now. go back to being a rumpled plaid recluse already.
