The Kroger supermarket chain is running that same clearance pattern, desert stuff was cheaper than jungle by a good $2 or so. Just noticed today.

Yeah, my outrage was more mock than authentic, lol. It doesn't bug me that much, although I do wish they wouldn't do it.

I'm very thankful for any new Rebels stuff though, and especially a new Hera figure!

Apparently Takei himself feels it's not what Roddenberry would've wanted, but then again the Trek franchise hasn't been what Roddenberry wanted since back in the TNG days before he died, and IMHO it improved without him after he died.  :-X

Yeah, I believe his exact quote was "very unfortunate" and while this surprised me at first after reading into it I can see his point. His take was that Sulu was always envisioned as a heterosexual character and that it would have been a better choice to make a new character gay rather than re-imagining an existing one. His respect for Roddenberry and the source material was pretty refreshing actually.

I agree he seems like a very likeable dude in a genuine way.

"Oh, My!"


I'm mostly good with last year's list too...sigh:

1. Tusken Raider
2. Jawas
3. Emperor's Royal Guard
4. Dengar
5. 4-LOM
6. Zuckuss
7. Bib Fortuna
8. SnowtrooperAdmiral Ackbar
9. AT-AT DriverGamorrean Guard
10. Hammerhead

I like it, and I'll definitely buy it, but it still seems weird to me they wouldn't roll out R5-D4 first in that sculpt as he is way more iconic than this other schmoe. Easy repaint for later I guess though.

Whew, I was worried we wouldn't have a separate thread to complain in... :P

Just please no more EU stuff...there's too many iconic OT characters they still need to trawl out and I don't think we can take anything for granted anymore with the scattershot, glacial pace of releases they seem to prefer. (Hasbro)

Rest of the bounty hunters, cantina goons, etc gonna need a lot of help, imho.

Saw the walker at gamestop...  Looks neat.  I have some EE ordering going on so I may just tack on a couple GoT guys but I'm gonna pik and choose on the line.  Ball jointed elbows and wrist joints would've had me all in.

Just gonna throw it out there - if anyone sees these at Gamestop this week please help a brother out and post a UPC/Item#/SKU so I can call around to try and find these.

I was surprised and disappointed to see they have not added these to their website yet despite selling them in their stores. They are normally much better about that stuff than most retailers.

THANKS!!  :)

Wish we could get some confirmation whether TRU or Target will be carrying these. Barnes and Noble seems to have gotten out of the 3&3/4" game.

I just saw Han and Leia for the first time last week. Leia actually looked better in person I thought, or at least the one I saw. No sign of Phasma...

Yeah, that is a great looking figure. Hope mine looks like that!

They should have done like every other year and made them both the same exclusive.  ::)

I'm not even going to waste energy worrying about it though, I've always been able to get previous exclusives for very decent prices by being patient. It'll all work out eventually.

Both of these sets are terrific IMO in terms of the toys themselves. Thank God they learned from that horrible cardboard table in the Han/greedo set and gave us some proper furniture this time around. I love stuff like that to spice up my displays.
