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!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts

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.

I don't know if the first 5 minutes of a TV show has ever made me so happy.  ;D If loving Glenn is wrong, I don't wanna be right!

Nevermind that we will likely have to go through this again next season, I can be happy for now.

I rarely question Rick, but he needs to stop saying "them" and "we" and just start thinking "us". Embrace the new community bro! (even if Deanna's son is a complete dipstick, sheesh) Guess he doesn't like prayer groups either.

Hard to figure with the shifting timelines, but I am curious/hoping Daryl and Abraham and Sasha show up in time to save the day next week. I don't think there was any mysterious shenanigans with the church toppling, just a lack of structural integrity after that truck rammed it.

LOL at Carol and her motherly advice. Killing is the only way NOT to become a monster? I'm not sure that is the best advice to be giving someone who has already been the victim of childhood abuse. Seems like a good recipe for brewing up a serial killer. Apparently the older brother appears well on his way to sociopathy.

Yeah, that kid bugs the **** out of me. One week you're saving Carl, the next week you're stalking him with a loaded gun? WTF? I'm praying he either gets eaten next week or Carl saves his ass once again showing him what an asinine idea this revenge trip is. (shouldnt he be madder at Rick anyway?) I also hope they are counting bullets so it will come out that he is lifting ammo. Little psycho. DO NOT SHOOT CARL IN THE EYE!!!  >:(

Morgan is starting to piss me off. If you have that much conviction in your beliefs, stop sneaking around behind people's backs doing stupid-ass reckless stuff. Should have just come clean at the table there with Rick and Michonne.

Can't wait for next week!

I got the Daryl/Merle walker arena building set Friday at a local comic shop. Still no sign of the Hospital Doors set though. I did spy a bunch of the new GoT sets at TRU the other day but had to just walk away.

That Target exclusive Tyreese figure is starting to piss me off too. Our local stores suck.

Nice get! I've had that same item bookmarked on eBay for awhile now. Very tempting, definitely a well done effort.

I wish someone would do a nice custom of the ship itself.

I suppose it would be good if Hasbro did a full case of Phasma in time for the holidays (along with cases of Kylo Ren and FO Stormtroopers) to meet demand and drive down the secondary market prices and/or eBay idiocy, but then they'd have to divert resources from Finn repack production and that would just be crazy.

On-topic: I found the Battlefront Shock Trooper at one of those Walmarts on Tuesday this week. Nice figure, although it once again makes me miss the double-jointed elbows on some of the TFA figures.

Hey man, for reals I will trade you a Phasma for one of those Shocktroopers straight up if you can get your hands on another. PM me if you're interested, would be glad to help you out.

I got mine Friday and haven't taken it out of the box yet. The one I got was disappointing in that the snow apps were very lightly applied on both the base and the figure itself. I guess I am struck with it unless I can find a better one in store, which at this point seems highly unlikely.  :(

Yeah, I saw 2 Phasmas at Target today over lunch. I think she has officially been bumped as most In-Demand 6" figure by the Imperial Shocktrooper. That dude is crazy hard to find right now. (All 4 of the stores that got solid cases of 6 here were sold out within a day)

I just want to ask the writers if they ever plan on killing Ward or should I just check out and stop watching now.

Because I've had enough of that cocky dbag to last a lifetime. Off him already. If Grey's Anatomy can kill McDreamy, NO ONE should be untouchable on that network.

It's hitting stores now. I just posted up report from Florida

What is the deal with Walgreens and Florida?!? The stores in that state were the only ones that ever got the Phasma wave too, at least for the first month or two. So odd.

Here's hoping there is some kind of unique UPC or item# for this one to make it easier to track down.

I was just thinking how cool it was when they used to make Star Wars Rebels action figures. That was a fun couple of months.  ::)

At this rate the %$^&* season is going to be over before those 2 Inquisitors and Rex make it out, if ever.

I get the focus on the new movie but they are letting the current media die on the vine as a result. Those new figures should have been in the latest TFA waves instead of repack swag like Kanan and the Inquisitor.

So much squandered potential...

Plenty of the prototype Boba Fett figures turned up at Walgreens stores.  And with Walgreens taking over Rite Aid?  That means there are going to be that many more Walgreens stores VERY SOON.  I think this Emporer's Wrath Vader will probably be reasonably easy to get.

Although I did see a few Proto Bobas around here, it is a very different case with their Walking Dead exclusive figures. That %$^& Deputy Rick figure NEVER made it to a single store around here, and I checked all of them repeatedly for weeks. And I only saw the Black Ant-Man at 2 different stores out of like 20 around here. That's the kind of stuff that has me nervous. They are not at all consistent with the availability of their products across the country.

If this isn't showing up in stores by Black Friday that is a HUGE missed opportunity for them IMO.
