The new 6" Baze and Chirrut look nice, Baze comes with a ton of gear. Haven't seen anything else new so far...

Dang, it's like that little mountain climber guy just slipped all the way back to the bottom on Price is Right....I can hear the music playing now.  :-[

I thought these were the two best episodes of the whole show so far. I think I probably woke up my kids shouting at Travis to keep beating the living **** out of those two dirtbags. That scene was great.

Stuff that didn't make sense - the whole thing with how the other guy got hurt. I thought Travis was in there alone with those two kids. I didn't even notice what happened. That dude probably should have hid in a corner or something and waited it out. Also, wtf with the "don't look behind the curtain" walker in the colonia. Guy just pops out of nowhere and starts eating people faces?

Strand was utterly wasted this whole season, Will we ever see him again?

Yeah, shocking that the "let's head to the military base" plan didn't work out. Because it always does in every apocalyptic disaster movie I've ever seen.  ::)

At least they are different. This is way better than the Maz Kanata pack IMO.

Thanks to a good friend who stashed a couple for me this morning at a more remote TRU, I am now the proud owner of two of these guys.  ;D

Haven't taken them out of the package yet even - they just look so cool as is.

The best part is they were only $19.99 each, no mark-up like the Snowtrooper Officer. (Yet)

I love this figure!

Think I'm probably in for the night, so I'm ready for a quick postmortem.

I will say overall, more so than any actual results, it was refreshing to get excited about buying toys again. I had forgotten that feeling for a few months during this long lull. So from that standpoint, it was a fun night for me regardless of anything else.

As some kind of marketing event it seems like more or less of a flop to me, but who knows what their actual expectations are. I'm not a fan of contrived street dates in general, but i guess it's going to be a thing each year now.

As far as today goes, I saw pretty much all the figures and most ships in good quantities, except for the Imperial Speeder which I only saw at TRU. I didn't see a single A-wing either, which would have been a bummer if I didn't have one coming from TRU online already. And I never, ever saw that dang Titanium Helmet 2-pack with Sabine and Vader. Did anyone see that?

I guess the TRU Hovertank Pilot was probably my most wanted thing that I whiffed on, but I pretty much expected that. I just don't know how dumb you have to be to only stock one case of your store exclusive for a MM event like this. If you can get a case, you should be able to get 10. I realize there will be more later but seems like a big blown opportunity with that much foot traffic on one night. I would have bought 3-4 of those easy.

With all the exclusives announced today, I'm going to need a whole new shelf just for a Rogue One 6" figures...

83
Aw man, I was really hoping we were going to get the K2-SO with blaster that was being shown everywhere early on, rather than another Jyn repack.

I sort of regret buying the single carded figure now too...dang.

84
My store got 1 case, which were promptly snapped up by the local 501st guys who got let in early to shop.  ::)

Either have it available in quantity or not at all. This kick-off trickle is weak, especially for a figure that is in such high demand.

And put it up on the website already!

85
Wow...so the Squad Leader is the Wave 2 guy, right?

I hope this is easier to find and in greater numbers than the Shock Troopers last year. Those required a lot of stalking to score.

I can't put a number on it yet but I will need a lot of these guys. Dang.

Hope we get some release date info soon.

Hmmm, based on the previous photos, I feel like Edrio Two-Tubes should be bigger. Awesome that we are getting a figure of him though! Fingers crossed for 6" too.

I stopped @ two Targets on the way into the office (after oversleeping) and although they both had plenty of figures (both scales) neither had any new Class I sets. jam packed with TFA stuff.

However, I did find a couple still on the pegs at TRU right after that, so crisis averted!  :D

I want a whole fleet of these things, it is completely awesome.

Now I can just obsess about the 6" Hover Tank Pilot.

Anyone see any online reports (other than Chewie's) about finding Wave 2 figures anyplace so far? I have not but I feel like there were some last year. Maybe a swing by to Kohls might be worth it.

TRU.com put their stuff up a few minutes before midnight, so I was able to pick up all the 6" guys and the A-Wing on sale with free shipping. :)

Unfortunately, that was the highlight of the night.

The first two Walmarts I hit had literally done nothing. No new product, no boxes sitting on pallets, no fancy cardboard displays, zippo. The third was in the middle of an aisle reset, and had a rectangular cardboard display with lost of lightsabers and 6" stuff. I also saw the TIE Striker and U-Wing on the shelf. No sign of the Imperial Speeder or A-Wing. Or the new Titanium Helmets. (They did have 12# animatronic Kanan but I couldn't bring myself pull the trigger)

I grabbed an extra Sabine and 6" Deathtrooper and called it a night. I saw no signs of any other SW collectors out and about. Sort of an underwhelming experience.

Planning to head out to some Targets soon. Fingers crossed for that %^&*( speeder.

Walmart has a giant cardboard U-Wing up too.  :o

T-minus 90 minutes now...I decided to stay home and put in a big order from TRU online, then hit a Walmart or two just to have a look see. Too excited to think about sleep!

That's awesome. Wish they would add them to their website though, I am on the verge of a massive order.
