I signed up a few weeks ago and have actually really started to get into it even though I'm way behind.

If anyone wants to add me on there my username is SOAPNTHEPEEHOLE

That was quick, got the droids today at the office.  Thanks again Paul!

Naturally you'd already posted that and I didn't dig around for it.

Thanks for the info.

So are all of those repacks outside the Vader and Scavenger sets or is that Threepio different from past versions?

Zeb-Copper, Anakin-Yoda, Han-Leia, and Obi-Wan-Cody look like straight repacks to me...

Oh good, I was worried that we weren't getting enough variants and new reveals.

Any decent HTS coupons at the moment?

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?
