I didn't check. I assumed because the package was worn that it was a lost in the back room find. It had multiple markdown stickers, if I remember right.

Wal-Mart near me had a Prince Xizor/Princess Leia comic on their clearance aisle. It wasn't there before. Where did they dig that up at? It's got a damaged cardboard hook at the top and a hole punched through it for hanging on the peg.

Was marked $10.

Any pack but that one I would've gotten it. I have a few extra from a wal-mart clearance from years ago.

Speaking of Playskool, anyone else noticed that Hasbro is now experimenting with playsets in that line, but not the 3.75" line?

Mattel has huge business from its similar kiddie offerings. Hall of Doom, hall of Justice and various Batcaves.

They can also release an army builder pack for Playskool, but the most recent 3 3/4" is online only.

Found Nien Nunb and Stormtrooper Squad Leader at a Meijer $3.99 each. They had flame troopers, too.
I talked myself into getting numb...er...Nunb.

The part that's being under-reported is that the AT-ACT plays "March of the baby elephants" when it walks.  :D

Which is movie-accurate...because Disney felt Rogue One needed more whimsy.  :-X

Having seen it now, I have to say that Star Trek Beyond continued the NuTrek (or whatever it's called) traditions of:
1. Hard to watch action sequences (My eyes must be getting old.)
2. Beastie Boys music
3. A talented actor cast as a crappy villain.* (Though, that predates NuTrek, back to at least the last two The Next Generations movies. Seriously, after Nemesis I though Tom Hardy was an awful actor...he's taken much better parts since.)
4. Relying some reveal to distract from what is, at best, a mediocre story with clumsy exposition. (Though, I think a recent trailer may have given the "twist" away.)

*I won't comment more on the villain, because that's gives away too much if you've managed to avoid spoilers.

There's a lot of aliens whose heads look like sea creatures. I almost expected Hammerhead to appear.  :P

Some nods to the passing of Nimoy.  :'(

It was fairly entertaining for what it is, just an action movie in space in Trek attire, but that's another part of the NuTrek tradition...which, to be fair, started with The Next Generation movies, the current series just found a way to make them have more mass appeal.
So decent entertainment with some nice character moments, but if you haven't loved the reboot Trek, this will not change your mind.

My "they are going to remake A New Hope" theory is back on.   :P

They were and are completely sold out. Sorry.  :(

Nah, they were just shown for the first time.  :D There wasn't a 3 3/4" Star Wars SDCC exclusive.  I guess they'll be part of the next Midnight toy release fiasco.

The Worst figures look amusing. They maybe not be ReAction, just Super 7.

Well, working a Hindu deity into the show is bound to cause some controversy.

It's funny to maintain the suspense they can't show 80% of the cast. So Morgan, Carol and Tara, whom I'd forgotten about. And Deanna's remaining son.

USS Discovery First Look.

Ugly. What was the last decent looking ship? Voyager?

Found a twin pod cloud car at a thrift store  :), missing one canopy and no stickers  :(
But nice condition for its age.

AT-ACT with removable BOX! Awesome.

Actually, it looks okay. No where near worth what they'll be charging, but...

The new troopers would be sweeet with articulation. More so than those duck troopers from Force Awakens, anyway.
