The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 1

The Amazon page I have bookmarked currently shows $34.99 with free shipping.
Looks like these are sold out then, for a similar price with shipping included... It's weird because the store that was selling them had a specific price for shipping on items ($7.99 for under a pound, which the Stormtrooper is under that weight) and they almost doubled the shipping on the Stormie most likely due to the popularity of the figure.

Wish HTS and TRU.com would get their acts together though.

Yeah, I managed to score mine through TRU.com, found one in a TRU (with sloppy paint apps of colors that don't belong on the Stormtrooper) and left it.  I really wish the QC was better on these Hasbro-deemed 'collector focus figures'.  Otherwise, they're just eyesores.

As of 9:43 CST, amazon has the 6" Stormtrooper for $21.59.

EDIT: Nevermind.  I didn't see they're charging $13+ for shipping.

Wow, sounds like a lot of crap paint jobs on this guy.  I would think paint would be improving on these by now, especially given the collector nature of them.

You would think, right?  And how does yellow and red paint get on a white and black stormtrooper?

Found a fresh case of Wave 1 2014 at my local TRU. Had the Stormtrooper in my hands excited that the helmet was in better shape than the one I ordered online. Looked further down and it appears that this trooper had a little accident at the company picnic. On his right thigh was a mix of red and yellow splotch.... too much ketchup and mustard on the hot dog apparently. I put him back and left him. I didn't want to deal with cleaning up the guy.

Found a fresh case of these on the pegs at Target.  Nabbed the Plagueis... figure I could help out a local (and if they don't need him; a member).

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

So if Obi-Wan does have a kid and she is force sensitive, what's with the dialogue between Obi and Yoda in Empire basically stating Luke or another (Leia) are their only hope? 

Yeah, I can see that being a problem for some fans (and if it happens, we'll have to see how that works out)... But from a different angle, even if the kid is force-sensitive, perhaps Luke and Leia are the only hope for balancing the force.  They are Anakin's offspring so maybe the love of a father for his children and vice-versa (yeah, after maiming one and torturing the other) can win Vader over.

Even though I managed to track Boba down at Christmas I may spring for this whole case.

Let Jayson make a custom prototype Fett for you... complete with box.

Yeah, that was Tommen, but it was a new actor to play him.

This one has the bad paint apps between the eyes too, must be an epidemic.

Congrats!  Wish I could find them in the wild.  You know, I think it may not be bad paint apps, but the EU trooper we've never seen: Unibrow-trooper.

Since Danaerys is the last Targaryen (that we know of for sure at this point), she really has the strongest claim to the throne, but does not quite have the power to take it.

And that is why Robert had assassins sent out to kill her and her unborn heir.

True... I was thinking along the lines of the Martells, who believe Myrcella is the rightful heir.

If we ignore the reality of the parentage of Cersie's children, then Tommen is the "rightful" heir to Joffrey since Joffrey did not have any offspring.

Depends... on a 'certain point of view'  ;)

I agree with Nick regarding Joff's death.  Sure, he's psychotic, but it's that lack of father-figure plus the fact he is king (and flaunts it despite grandpa telling him a king doesn't tell people he is) Joffrey has power and feels he can get away with anything without repercussion.  He felt he was untouchable.  I don't think Joffrey ever thought he would die (despite seeing many others killed around him) and when he realized he was done for, he realized how helpless he was and that scared him.

Nick, I believe it was Littlefinger
