Ditto - I'd like to see a break of at least a year or two, just like the break between waves 1 and 2.

Just gonna put an open "want to buy" out there for any of the following Lego...

Lego Star Wars sets from 2010 or earlier - the one set I'm most interested in acquiring is the Rogue Shadow
Lego Marvel Superhero Constraction Sets - Hulk, Iron Man & Captain America
Lego DC Comics Superhero Sets from 2012-2014 (except for Superman vs. Power Armor Lex)

PM if you have anything you're looking to sell.

Been back-filling my Lego DC Comics collection now (kinda had a feeling I'd do that once I bought those three BvS sets) - here's what I've gotten so far:

Superman vs Power Armor Lex
Cosmic Boy Polybag
Batman: The Penguin Face off
Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas
Black Manta Deep Sea Strike
Darkseid Invasion
Batboat Harbor Pursuit
Gotham City Cycle Chase
Batman vs. Catwoman Mighty Micro
Robin vs. Bane Mighty Micro
The Flash vs. Captain Cold Mighty Micro
Electro Suit Batman & Lego Batman Visual Dictionary

Bought and on their way:
The Joker Bumper Car Polybag
Superman: Battle of Smallville
Brainiac Attack
Batman Bat Signal
Lightning Lad (from the Target minifigure Cube)
Batzarro (from the Bizarro Justice League DVD)

I'm kicking myself that I got the Martian Manhunter Polybag a year or so ago at the Lego Store and then gave it away to a co-worker who has a son that is really into Legos, so I gotta grab that one off eBay at some point.

I'm going to hold off on getting the 1960s Batcave set for when the 1960s Mr Freeze polybag becomes available in a week or so.

And then I'll go on the steady progression of trying to grab one set a month until I'm caught up with everything from 2012 until now...  :-\

I hate it when Star Wars is a void wasteland of nothingness to get - I always find something else I'm interested in spending my money on, and lately, Lego seems like a great way to spend it....

I agree with every single word of what Justin posted. I was coming here to give the same opinions and he beat me to it.

I will add that I think if you go in expecting it to be a 5 (or less) then you will not come out disappointed, because it will exceed your low expectations.

I finally decided I was sick of trying to find another Fifth Brother to open so I grabbed one off HTS just now. Still in stock if you need it.

Happy to not obsess over this guy anymore.

I was sick and tired of not finding this way PERIOD - I grabbed all three off HTS last week, used the SPRING16 promo code and got them with free shipping and less than $6.99 each.

Very glad to be down to just the unmasked Kylo Ren wave in the 5POA BAW line...

Picked up Kanan's Speederbike which was the last set I needed from this round of releases. The only store I've found this set in is Target, there is typically one set that is a shared exclusive between Lego & Target in each release cycle, so I wonder if Kanan's speederbike is it.

I think that at this point Leia is the Jocasta Nu of the Star Wars line. Hasbro is never going to put out an action figure of an "old lady" in the mass market 5POA line, so she'll be relegated from here on out as an exclusive. I think the 3.75" Black Series is the ONLY way we'd ever get Leia in this outfit from TFA, so I'm kinda glad she got a slot. I'm definitely glad she got a slot instead of a 3.75" SA rendition of a character like General Hux.

They should've wondered why Negans people need all this food and would increase their demands.  Wisdom would say you don't destroy your food supply, so clearly they need to feed a lot of people.  This is all a bad idea and I give Hardwick credit for sorta saying "this seems like a dumb move".  He's rarely critical but was on this one.

It's definitely a bad idea, but it does establish one major difference that will help the show chart a different course from the comics.

One of the first thing that happens after we're introduced to Lucille and its first use, is that Maggie basically slugs Rick and blames him for the death.

In the show however, it was Maggie that negotiated with Gregory & the Hilltop community what the Alexandria crew will do in order to get food and supplies, so if they keep with killing the same character that they did in the comics, Maggie will only have herself to blame, not Rick - especially since Rick's plan was going great until she got her ass caught.

So yeah - definitely lots of dumb moves on our main crew's part in this episode...

I'm pretty sure those pictures Glenn found were Lucile's handiwork.

They most definitely were. My thinking is that this does have the potential to be a sign that a different character or perhaps none of them at all will be having a one-on-one date with Lucille. Fingers crossed...

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on getting all three of the Batman v. Superman sets. While I don't really have a lot of faith in the movie, I do like the Batmobile and Batwing designs. Don't really want to get "too deep" into the DC Comics sets - so I'll stick with just these for now, but that new Harley Quinn set does look nice, as does the classic 1960's Batcave set...  :-\

Picked up all three of the Marvel Mighty Micros sets (Hulk/Ultron, Cap/Red Skull, Spidey/Green Goblin) and got the new Venom Symbiote polybag from eBay.

Scored the Ghost Microfighter at the Toys R Us near my work and scored the TIE Advanced Prototype Microfighter at my local WalMart.

I have not seen the Kanan Speeder Bike set anywhere yet...

Picked up the Crossbones Hazard Heist set today - I think this is the last boxed Captain America: Civil War set (for now) that I needed...

Picked up the Carbon Freezing Chamber this morning at a WalMart on my way into work. Also picked up the Resistance X-Wing Micro-fighter the other day at the same WalMart - this is the same store where I found the other sets previously. So far, this is the only WalMart in my area that is leaking new 2016 sets...

On the way home from work, stopped by a Toys R Us and was able to get:
Homing Spider Droid
Rebel Alliance Battle Pack
Galactic Empire Battle Pack
AT-DP Microfighter
Wookiee Gunship Microfighter
Hoth Attack

I think from this round, all I need now is Kanan's Speeder Bike, the Ghost Microfighter and the TIE Advanced Prototype Microfighter

Grabbed a Tasu Leech yesterday at Walmart in the Boston area. Someone had already grabbed Ackbar unfortunately.

Had a similar experience this morning on my way into work - found the remnants of the Ackbar wave - mainly Tasu Leech and the Fifth Brother, which I grabbed.

Finally scored the Han/Rey/Hassk Thug and Rex/Unkar Plutt/FN-2187 waves this week. The Han wave was at Target and the Unkar wave was at WalMart.
