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...

Hall of Justice / Re: LEGO Does the DC Universe

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.

Picked up the Super Hero Airport Battle and Black Panther Pursuit sets from a local WalMart on my way into work today. I'm guessing these were put out onto the shelves a tad prematurely...

Found the Han Solo/Flametrooper/Finn (FN-2187) wave this morning on my way into work (finally). I'm all caught up now on my 6" TFA collection until figures like C-3PO w/Red Arm, General Leia & Maz Kanata start showing up.

Still on the fence about whether or not I want to get the Rebels figures in the 6" scale. I just KNOW at some point there will be 3.75" SA versions of the main crew members and probably an updated Ahsoka - but the Kanan, Sabine and Ahsoka 6" figures do look good - it will probably come down to when I see them in person for the first time and whether or not I want to pull the trigger - the only reason I jumped into the 6" TFA line is cause I didn't think we'd get nicely articulated versions of these characters in the 3.75" scale - and so far - we've only gotten five of them (six if you count the re-released 3.75" SA Chewie figure), so there's definitely a chance that one day I'll regret getting any of these 6" figures.  :-\

Picked up the new Obi-Wan Jedi Interceptor and Droid Escape Pod sets at my local WalMart - I have only seen these two sets at one WalMart, almost has me wondering if they got these sets prematurely by accident

Heads up that LEGO will be doing Double VIP points from March 7-22. Offer good in LEGO Stores and online.

Nice! Thanks for the heads-up. Hopefully that will correspond with the availability of the remaining Winter 2016 Lego Star Wars sets!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4

I was shocked when I heard that Asty was even in the running for this line - I mean how much screen time did he get? Has the Hasbro Star Wars team even bothered to watch TFA yet? Why don't they just complete this wave with a SA Constable Zuvio to really punch this wave up a notch?! An over-hyped character that didn't do much, a character that was a blink-and-you miss him appearance and a character that found it's way to the cutting room floor. Home run for Hasbro!
