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!

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.
