The hockey rink on the bottom floor.

I think the hockey rink is on the command level and the penalty box is the trash compactor...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Re: Black Series Rumors

They test prices and see how things move. 

I think this is the case.  When I lived in Minneapolis (Target's HQ), Target were in abundance and in competition with each other, so sometimes one store would have higher prices than another.  And it seems in January, they raise prices by a buck or so to see if the demand would still be there with the higher price.  I know I paid the extra since there were some good figures out at times, but eventually, they went down... sometimes to the original price, sometimes to maybe $.50 more.

I don't think there's a reason to panic yet about this.  As of now, I'm up to date on figures and the next release is supposed to be in the spring (right?).  I think it would be slow goings for SW at the moment.  Plus, it doesn't make sense on Targets part when they have been shipping partial cases until the holidays, so I would think that they don't have faith in the product to stock it fully.

I'd be up for some Emily Blunt.

Happy birthday, Scott!

That pretty much sums up my feelings, Jeff... regarding Avengers and SW. 

Hasbro would be dumb not to do TFA figures, even if they are 5 PoA, with the vintage feel.  That said, I believe the first batch of these figures will be like what they did for RotS and AotC (or Saga), minimal articulation with action features and pre-posed.  I will skip these figures and wait for the SA figures when/if they get there.  If they don't do them, then I guess I'm not missing out then.

No way I'd pay $20 or more for BB8.  Just a little under 3", maybe 2.75"? That's very small.  To think that 4" version would be just over 2.5", if my math is correct.  Of course, that's probably the size of Yoda (never measured him and don't own the 6" yet).

Since they are showing 5 figures and usually one wave of 6" has four figures, do you think BB8 will be a pack in?  I'd be pleasantly surprised if that were the case.

Well, I can take off 4 from my list (Snowspeeder Wedge, Toryn Farr, Dagobah Luke, and Han Carbonite).  Yoda moves onto the list, too, since the final result of him and Dagobah Luke don't live up to what I wanted (Yoda= PoA, Luke= Likeness).  Otherwise, I feel that we're scrapping the barrel for figures to find from Empire.

1. Lando Calrissian (Ultimate Sculpt)
2. Tauntaun Handler
3. Luke Skywalker (Ultimate Sculpt, Battle-damaged, torn Bespin fatigues)
4. Captain/Admiral Piett (with swappable rank badges)
5. Princess Leia (Ultimate Sculpt Bespin Capture)
6. Derek “Hobbie” Klevan
7. Bespin C-3PO (with accurate blown apart sculpt)
8. Vintage Bespin Guard
9. Asteroid Victim Imperial Officer
10. Yoda (SA)

I did receive a bunch of Clone Troopers in the mail this week I ordered off HTS and Amazon when they were running those cheap deals recently. That's another wave that never saw the light of day here.

I've been hoping Anakin gets to nice prices but nope.  Of course, he's sold out at HTS after I've been eyeing for specials... was late on that.

Well, onto the winter break... hard to wait until March, but I guess we have Agent Carter to tide us over until then.

So the finale, wow!

A question...

What happened to Raina?  She was there and it appeared she changed, but she didn't appear to be in the chamber once Skye freed herself from her "Chrysalis."

Poor Trip

So far only 5.

I'm kind of in the same boat, Jesse.  Can't have any defense.  It's all offensive...  I think I no longer get attacked anymore since I've lost pretty much all my medals.  It's hard to build a base up anyways.  I think Clash of Clans also has you targeted as you get near a certain number of coins or elixir to buy or upgrade something so that someone defeats you and sets you back.

So is this a reboot?

Not really... it looks like they sent Kyle Reese back to save Sarah, but since it already happened, they have a T-800 to fit the first T-800, but there's also another Terminator, not sure if it's a T-1000 or newer version, in the mix.

Saw 2 Obi-Wans on blue cards sitting at TRU and Target... frustrating to miss the ones I want, but also frustrating that blue card Obi-Wan is sitting on the pegs with a few other phase I Obi-Wans.

Stupid Obi-Wan!!!  Same situation at another local TRU.
