So it's been months and I still never saw Ren with his hood down, Han, or Resistance Rey.  Rey and Han can be had for about $17 or $18 on Amazon, Ren seems to be more like $25 - I figure I could do a little better on eBay, but would prefer not to.

Have those come and gone or are we still expecting them?

It's ok Rob...we still like you no matter what you think of us.   ;D

In all seriousness...I'm just happy to see more SA figures.  Hopefully, I'll be able to find them on a peg somewhere!

Of all the various Star Wars sites....I visit one.

The funny thing is that even for all the political nonsense over the years, I don't think there's anyone who frequents JD that I'm including in that.   :)

Love these lists, but never very good a making them.

1 - Hoth Bikerscout
2 - Sim Aloo
3 - AV 6R7
4 - Yak Face/Saelt Marae (Updated Sculpt)
5 - Klaatu skiff guard outfit (Updated Sculpt)
6 - Barada (updated sculpt)
7 - Vizam
8 - Theron Nett: Red 10 - he's the last Yavin pilot to make!
9 - Bespin Guard (Mustache)
10 - Ev-9D9 (updated sculpt

Is there another Vizam or did you mean this guy?

If it's going to be substantially better than what's in that photo, I'm amazed that they'd show it at all.

I took some new photos in March... figured I'd update if anyone is interested.

You can't have a "ambassador" for the hobby so he claims act like this...he has his right to his opinions but he acts that he speaks for the collectors.  It's does give us collectors a bad rep.

This is the type of notion that makes me queasy when it comes to this hobby.  For better or for worse, after 21 years I still enjoy collecting, but I can't stand half of the people who are into it. 

There aren't any ambassadors, authorities, or special people on these websites (except Jeff of course), we're all just a bunch of people with some amount of disposable income buying toys way past the age that we should be buying toys at.  The people who start feeling all self-important because they carved out a platform for themselves on the internet and then take it seriously enough to treat other people poorly or say stupid things like this Harrison guy are the worst kind of nonsense.  It's guys like him who make me happy I can buy this stuff online now instead of having to interact with people in toy aisles.

Enjoy it, or don't, but toy collecting isn't life or death, it's toys.  It should be fun and friendly or you should quit, immediately.

Paul who?

Seriously, never heard of the guy.  I suppose as a show of solidarity, I'll continue to never visit JTA or know who he is.

The internet is a cesspool with good and bad apples floating around in it.  Collecting communities on the internet are no different.  I'm not trying to be dismissive of your point or request or observations, but best thing you could do is just not use sites like that and eventually all that'll be left there is people who do tolerate, or approve of that kind of behavior, and then they can have each other.

UCS TIE Fighter for Amazon Prime Day - $125.99:

I managed to get an order in.  I'm hoping to order Phasma too before she sells out... whenever that happens.

A few questions...

01:  Is the Landstrider set the only known SDCC exclusive at this point? 
02:  Do we know if it'll be available anywhere else?
03:  Do any of you happen to have an extra of the glow-in-the-dark Xenomorph from the carrying case set you'd like to sell?

Got my shipping notice for the Japanese-branded 3-pack and Carrying Case... 8)

04:  That set is the same as the last one with just packaging changes right?

Probably needs its own thread, but also in that link...

I hadn't seen this one yet...

Yeah, I mean for me the top of the list would be any vintage figure that they never got to - so that's Sim Aloo.

1) Sim Aloo
2) Tonnika Sisters - I still have a hard time believing that there was no way to get those done.
3 and 4)  The other two Imperial Dignitaries
5) Tessek - Always wanted a higher quality version of him

After that, yeah - any unmade background characters, cantina aliens, jabba's goons...

6-8) Baniss Keeg, Solomahal, and Fozec are all good by me.

9) I always thought it'd be cool to get some of the camo-dressed Mon Cals from the Rebel Briefing:

10) How about this Reegesk fella:

The silver lining, is that I think Hasbro will still make the occasional new figure from the OT for collectors.   I hope at least.

I managed to find a Han last week in the middle of nowhere in Wisconsin.  No sign of Leia or Phasma.

Oh good - at least that means 13 or 14 episodes more... I thought this season was one of the two remaining ones and that it was just one short one.
