Please not Vlix. I still plan on owning an original some day.

Odd that they would hype the articulation for just jawas and astromechs, which are so limited in that regard to begin with. Hopefully at least one surprise in there.

Three exclusives no one will be able to get seems like overkill IMHO.  ::)

But at least it's just packaging, which is the least offensive of all con exclusives.

There is not even a scintilla of doubt in my mind that the thing is either outright rigged from inception or 5 high school dweebs are just hacking it all up beyond recognition. No way that is a legit sampling.

Starkiller would be slightly less of a bitter pill to swallow, as I did enjoy the game, and there's at least a chance the character could show up in some way shape or form down the road.

Talon is a neat design but you just know Hasbro would wreck it all to hell with those bare arms and legs. Slave Leia 2.0.

The comments are hilarious.  I commented on a bunch, including a jab at a certain other collector site who just can't believe their list didn't end up as the 6 finalists.   ::) #URNotAllThat

Man, I so wanted to jump into that fray too, but it wasn't worth joining Facebook.

Those people make the worst lot over at Rebelscum seem like a bunch of calm, rational intellectuals by comparison.

Elite SeriesStormtrooper Finn is up for sale now at!

So four characters that don't exist and one that I'm almost positive was previously announced/strongly rumored at some point. (Rex)

Man, even the toy elections have crappy choices this year.  :D

Dengar FTW!

I found the huge thing Kanan was talking to infinitely more interesting than Thrawn, but apparently they have toasted all the Inquisitors now, so it makes sense they would need to find a new way to up the danger level this season. At least they ditched his funky Space Parrot or whatever.

Agree it was a whole lot crammed in there. Makes me sad we will likely never see any of the great characters like Hondo, Lando, and the Mandalorians made in the toy line.  :(

If it's going to be substantially better than what's in that photo, I'm amazed that they'd show it at all.

Apparently they actually took her out of the display case after all the brouhaha.

I thought they did a great job on the Boushh likeness, but this...eeesh.

Always hated that place for its sloppy, amateurish reporting, constant glad handing, and just a general overall junior high school level mentality.

But this goes beyond the pale even for him.

It's like, the more we see played out in the news every day the horrible effects of bigotry and ignorance, the more some people seem to want to cling to that inane bs.

Pure garbage, and offensive on every level.

That Jyn figure looks really nice.

Is Jedha the beach planet?

On your mark...get set...terrible!  :D

The hair that is...

We need another Hondo figure!

Gamestop finally got these up on their website this week, but the closest store with any in stock is 42 miles away from me. So I just went ahead and bought all of them as a lot on eBay for less than $10 apiece shipped, pretty pleased about that. Look forward to checking them out firsthand.  :)

Late to posting...watched the finale live but only managed a second viewing just last night. Really gripping stuff...certainly accentuated with the creepy musical score that bookended the episode.

It's the little details that help make this show so great. The Lady of Thorns dressing down the Sand Snakes...the Hand of the Queen moment with Tyrion...Sam seeing the white ravens flying out from the Citadel from afar...just really nice touches.

And if you love strong, well written female characters with depth, you've got a lot to love in this show. Not only Dany, Cersei, and Arya but now Yara, Meera, Lady Moormont, the Sand Snakes, etc. Pretty amazing in such a brutal world how women have come to stake such a claim for themselves. Fun to watch too.

For years I felt like I was the only person who still had a white-hot hatred for Walter Frey that would never subside. Every season I kept waiting for them to come back around and serve up some justice there. It was just incredibly satisfying seeing him go out the way he did. As if I could love Arya's character any more. And I disagree about House Frey - I think they are in complete and utter shambles on par with House Baratheon. Those 2 dipshits Arya carved up were the best and brightest of the lot. The rest may as well jump into the river at this point.

Still concerned about the wild cards like Littlefinger and Melisandre. But hopefully they don't screw things up too badly along the way.

And I know it's wrong, but I can't help but wonder WTF Frankenmountain was actually going to do to that poor Nun.  :-X
I mean, I don't think that thing even eats, sleeps or goes to the bathroom, much less has anything else going on down there...maybe he was planning to sing show tunes?  :P
