Any decent HTS coupons at the moment?

Nope, same.

Love all 3 and hope I can get a handful of troopers.  Don't intend to army build like I did for the OT, but squads would be neat.

I've been off the Army Building thing for years now - that Stormtrooper is the first thing I've seen in forever that has me thinking about it.

They should sell a 6 pack for $40 or $50 - just a white mailer box or something where the figures are in baggies.  I'd buy a few of them...

I believe that the new trilogy will end with the last remnants of the Empire being chased out of the galaxy and relocating to a small, backwater world called "Earth," where they will eventually design clothing for WW2 Nazis.

So Imperials eventually start Hugo Boss?

I have a feeling we'll be seeing an awful lot of that SA First Order Stormtrooper. 

So Blue Trooper... this is the first I've heard of it - was it actually a thing that was available but poorly distributed, or did it not show up at all?

The Toys R Us I went to Thursday night had one aisle of toys.  Of that, maybe 2 dozen pegs of regular figures?

There was somewhere between 65 and 75 people there I'd guess, and none of them were 9 year old Billy with his parents.

The initial launch should have been completely collector focused, with the more kid oriented stuff taking a back seat.  I bought 6 figures and a handful of the small and mid-size vehicles, but the Kylo Rens and Phasmas were long gone by the time I got into the aisle. 

I have to interpret that as Hasbro wanting to get more bang for their tooling buck.

And I think we're at 3 x Sandtroopers now with the new EE exclusive set.  :D

Yeah but to me if they go that route too quickly it means you're never going to get cool, less pivotal characters made.  They used to supplement smaller tier characters with easy to make re-hashes, now they're just spreading them around right off the bat.

I'm a little tired of clonetroopers by now, but I ordered one to get the Stormtroopers.  It's a better offering than the EE one, which is $20 more for what is essentially a bunch of repaints.

I'm freaking sick of them.  I was hoping that with the new movie it would be a while before we got a glut of slightly-different clones and stormtroopers.  I hope they plan a larger launch of better figures and new figures instead of just troops troops troops from here until Rogue One.

So is that TIE Fighter Pilot a repack with a name or is there something different about him?  I'd like to get the OT figures from this, so i guess I'll pre-order and sell the Crimson Trooper and possibly the TIE Fighter Pilot if he's a duplicate?

They're what, 40-ish figures into this line and we've already had 2 Boba Fetts, 2 Biker Scouts, 2 Sandtroopers, 2 Vaders, 4 Stormtroopers...

I walked into the Target downtown and those mid-sized vehicles were $45.99.  The Speeder Bike sized vehicles were $30.99. 

My receipts from TRU last night show that I paid $29.99 and $19.99...

I've been doing 90% of my collecting online for years now, so whatever.  As long as anything that's actually new stuff is available I'm not worried about it.

It is always infuriating when characters on TV shows fail to share pertinent information with each other that would be blurted out instantly in real life. English Teacher Guy doesn't feel like mentioning to anyone that the dead are coming back to life now? Even when his ex-wife asks him point blank what he knows? "Ive seen what it can do, and what it can't..." very cryptic and dramatic and all that but how about just sharing some details? Oy vey!

Same when no one could explain to the sister why she couldn't go sit next to her sick boyfriend... for ****'s sake, a simple "people are turning into zombies" would have sufficed.  Is this some alternate universe where the word zombie doesn't exist?

Also the protests struck me as stupid - the police brutality thing is a big issue in our real world today, but there would be 24 hour, wall to wall media coverage of people turning into monsters and not dying until they get a bullet in the brain pretty quickly, which would be the end of the protests.
