Watch for a joke in the film. THAT IS R5-D4, not only that, he's the one that had the back up copy of the Death Star plans. (There's a convoluted reason he wound up on Tatooine.)

R2-D2 knew this and sabotaged protect the secret or just a desire to hog all the glory.

That would be so convoluted and forced that I could totally see them doing it.

Me Three.

(But just for one set...)

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1

I wonder if stores will get more than one case of figures. The TRU near me only got two cases of 3 3/4" figures for TFA and were gone within five minutes of their midnight madness opening. Someone bought both cases. There were no figures at all that night and the next day. Just lots of roll play crap they still have on their shelves now.

And that's why I'm not bothering this year.  I can wait... hanging out in line, dealing with 100 other people, and then fighting for scraps was such a waste of time...

Hasbro says they're sending more product out this time, but I could still see it going quickly.  Also, it doesn't really matter since all of these will be everywhere within a few weeks anyway.

Looks like the last four pack is still available on the app, hopefully this one will be the same thing.

Weren't there some hints that maybe this line would be available outside of Walmart?

I don't suppose we ever found out what was up with the rumors or teases or whatever it was...

Wow, I really thought the Golden Girls thing was just an elaborate April Fool's prank. Who in the hell would buy that? Everyone who watched the show is dead now!

I can't deny the appeal of Bea Arthur's dome for Ackmena customs, but what do you do with the other 3?

The DC set is all kinds of awesome. I need a lot of Garthims.

My wife loves the Golden Girls, and I do too.

I'm buying.

Stumbled across some ReAction figures at Tuesday Morning of all places, a few Uhuras, a Karate Kid, Snake Plissken and Jack Burton.

They were only $2.99 each so I bought them all. I have a nice batch of cheap extras between the various Target and Barnes and Noble clearances and now this.

For that price, I'm happy to stockpile these guys.

1985 prices!

I bit on the Funko Garbage Pail Kids earlier in the year.

Now I'm trying to resist the new Game of Thrones 3.75" figures.

If any of you happen to run across an extra of the chase version of Oogie Boogie and would be interested in helping a guy out???

I'll do the same if I stumble across more than one.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Class I Vehicle Sets

Seems to me that Hasbro is trying to avoid producing a bunch of vehicles that don't end up in the movie this time around.  Striker, U-Wing, AT-ACT, and Rebels from there on out.  Probably a smart move.

Holy crap that's going to sit.  It's going to be REALLY fun trying to get my hands on one of each of the figures that it comes with... Damn.

Ebay. Not many people debate the ethics of buying from sellers in China anymore. When it's that or the alternative (or no alternative).

If we get to that point and you happen to notice any eBay sellers, from China or otherwise with reasonable prices for the figures please do let me know. 

I ended up paying $40 for the Finn and Chewie from the TFA Falcon, and I looked around a lot.  Maybe it was there and I missed it, but I never saw any Chinese eBay sellers with them.
