Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1
« on: October 11, 2016, 05:17 PM »
Great post!  I struggle with this too. 

I've opened any Rebels/TFA related figures and displayed them, but any Rogue One items that I've snapped up I've simply left packaged in a corner.  I won't open them or really overly inspect them until after the movie is released.  Like you, I don't want to think too hard about the figures and thus the plot of the movie as I would like as much as possible to be surprised by as many story elements as possible.

Smart.  I don't really have the will power or space for that, I wanted to get them opened up and worked into the shelves as quick as possible... Sunday's project was compressing the space all the ROTS figures were taking up to make a new gap between that and ANH.   I've probably got room for 40 or 50 figures at most, so now I'm hoping they don't make quite as many figures for this as they did for TFA.    :-\

The tracking on mine is last noted as being in Jacksonville, which is probably a little worse than Orlando.   The note says:

"Recent weather has caused delivery delays. Recovery efforts are under way to deliver your package as soon as possible. / We’re working to deliver your package as soon as possible."

Delays are fine, but 'recovery efforts' got my attention.

I got an email saying that my Disney delivery will be delayed because of hurricane Matthew. Anyone else get that?

Yeah, I can't tell if Jeff is joking or not.

Awesome, thanks!

I've got people staying with me from out of town for just that one night... any chance we could go a day earlier or a day later?

I saw a bunch of the Wal-Mart exclusive Poe's X-Wing (the blue one) marked down for $13 today... if you skipped that and wanted one, now is probably the time to keep an eye out.

So now I'm in this stretch of time where I have wave 1, haven't seen the movie, and am trying to stay away from spoilers.  So that leaves me with a few questions about the accessories and how to display these figures.

1)  Does K-2SO's big arm attachment accessory thing - is that something he actually has in the movie or is it another over-sized silly accessory for kids?

2)  Same question about the Imperial Ground Crew's big backpack?  I'm guessing this is just a dumb accessory for kids right?

3)  The Stormtrooper's chest armor / pauldron attachments...  Is this just a poorly executed way to give you the option of displaying the figure as a Stormtrooper or Sandtrooper or is there some significance to it?  i.e., do I just toss those?  Leave them all on?  Mix them up?

So I got an email saying I was renewed and it looks like we have a league with 6.

Should I put up a post in Wattos?  Encourage people to bring their friends from outside JD?

Yikes... didn't we only have five last year?

I suppose you could renew it for 10 and we could look for fresh blood?

Rob, I think that nails down what I've thought overall.  I keep watching just to get my zombie fill, but even that is fading.

I'll probably just stick with it to see what ends up happening, but unlike TWD, this gets put on the DVR and watched as time presents itself.

And if enough people feel that way, this show doesn't have more than a season or two left...

I don't know why, but I'm really really liking the Rogue One figures.

Well, I know why - because it feels more OT than TFA did... that's why. 

Probably need to renew the league pretty soon if we are?

I can't put my finger on it, but I'm having a really hard time caring about this show compared to the regular one.  Maybe because it's referential... maybe because the characters aren't as dynamic or interesting... maybe because the writing just isn't as good and doesn't encompass much that we haven't already seen and done in the original... but I'm still very meh on the whole thing, even if it's slowly getting better.

Total junk, but marginally better junk than the TFA Kohl's set...
