The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 5

Online? Last wave? Geez, I need to start taking gingkoba 'cause I have no recollection of how I even got Ashoka.

Now that I think about it, I probably don't have Ackbar either.

The more my brain is exposed for the Swiss cheese it's become, the better this wave is turning out to be.

I must've missed the ERG the first time around since I don't recall the 2nd helmet and shoulder pads.

Here's hoping Hasbro re-releases the figures that were hard to find during their original release.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set

I can't help but feel they looked at Sphero's BB-8 last year and jumped on marrying a phone-based controller with one of they're toys. The size and gadgetry just make it too expensive. The stiff-legged movement almost 20 years ago with Galoob's Action Fleet-sized $20 remote-controlled AT-AT walker was acceptable; on a $279 toy in 2016, it's half-assed. (No doubt that integrating movement to knee joints would have bumped up the price.)

Maybe they'll re-release with articulated knees minus the electronics.

I love the design of the ship. As for the toy, I'm not bothered it's under-scaled since it's a nice representation. Yeah, it would've been cool if the nerf launcher was detachable so the compartment can double as the cargo hold. On the bright side, foam missiles reduce the risk of blinding my nephew.

When I shoot, you try to catch the nerf in your mouth, ok?

Unexpectedly finding the landstrider made my day. I hope the Garthim/winged Kira NYCC exclusive will also be shared and just as easy to find or order.

Pics are up. Me likey. Don't remember where the droids are from, but paint schemes are very nice.

what more do collectors really want from the 5POA TFA line?

I'm a sucker for aliens and want to see more of the boozers from Maz's speak-easy. That funky retro droid with spikey head would be cool. And of course, abandoned child Rey.

I enjoyed reading her posts.

The one that stands out and still makes me smile was her relaying when her toddler son, out of the blue, began threatening the butcher (or someone at the grocery store). Horror gave way to bemusement when she realized that her son was mouthing words from Dr. Evazan's lines.

I see some on eBay and the facial paint apps really pales against the samples. If these are an indication of the run, it would be a disappointment.

I got a lttle ahead of the storyline. The tie-in was shown on the preview for this week's episode. So no FTWD-ADD moment for you.  :P

There was a gun shot blast that came from the house, right? Did Jonestown dad kill himself? Shoot his daughter? Get bitten while firing?

The show has a few interesting elements but a lot of "WTF" moments.

The plane crash survivor tie-in is a nice angle.

Larger click and hover pics at Funko really shows the detail. Let's hope the paint jobs are up to snuff.

Wowsa. I am in. I expected these would be retro so I didn't pay attention to the thread. Sculpting and resemblance are great. I can accept the hinge joints since, as someone mentioned, Funko's a small company and they have to cut costs some how.

Stopped by a big-ish local toy store last Saturday. They must have just stocked. Finally came across a Phasma; pleasantly shocked to find Tasu Leech, Fifth Brother, and Ackbar; and rounded it off with the Luke that I never bothered with until now. A nice side trip with the exception of my niece and nephew guilting me into buying them something.  :P

Found Ithano/Quiggold and Snowtrooper/Wexley 2-packs at a Target a day later.

The EE exclusive deco desert assault vehicle at amazon now for ~$19. Eligible for free shipping. Don't see the EE sticker...for those into the packaging.
