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.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1
« on: October 8, 2016, 05:52 PM »
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...

I managed to order through the App, so I'm off the list.  Thanks anyway Paul!

I guess I casually thought that wave 1 and wave 2 were both coming out on Force Friday.  Do we know when this second wave is supposed to show up?

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Home Video Release 4-Pack
« on: September 30, 2016, 12:33 PM »
I wonder how many of these figures will have been previously released by the time the 4-pack comes out and how many will be unique to it... It'd be a shame to buy 3 of them individually and then have to buy them all again to get the fourth (Maz...).  At least seeing it now lets us plan a little I suppose.  I'd rather skip a few figures for a few months than buy them all twice.

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...)

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.
