I would have been okay with lumping the prequels into one list... or even making it down to 5 figures each film, especially given Hasbro and Disney's (supposed) focus on the OT.  In several years time, the wishlist go go year-round. (Episodes 1-9, Rebels, EU, CW, Spin-off movies, 6", Champions).  That would be a headache.  But still, this is one of the things I enjoy about JD.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Recent Purchases

Picked up another 6" Boba Fett @ TRU this morning, got them to price match the $17.99 online price. Looks like they got more of Wave 2 though, not Wave 4. No sign of anything else new there.

That's odd.  My local TRU also restocked with Wave 2 recently... no Boba, but was surprised to see Greedo and Leia when it was just 2 Hans there.  I guess Han needed a Greedo to hang with before the Showdown 2-pack showed up.

My list of "No One's Been Done in a While (and may not be, either)".

1 Queen Padme Amidala (Theed Palace)
2 Tey How (Neimodian Bridge Controller)
3 Anakin Skywalker (Tatooine with Podracer helmet)
4 Nobot
5 Elan Mak
6 C-3PO
7 Senator Palpatine
8 Chancellor Vallorum
9 Aldar Beedo
10 Nute Gunray

I guess paint apps horrors strike this line, too.  Yakface posted a picture (from Imperial Shipyards) of someone who had a Scout without a painted lens.  That's gotta suck

A local found these at Vintage Stock a few days ago...

I got mine at $39.99

Ditto.  I forgot they were that much, but if you can find another $40 item they have a BOGO 40% on ALL TOYS this week.

I think it's at select stores.  I saw no kind of advertising regarding that... in the paper or in store.

I picked up the Speederbike set yesterday.  Love it, but there are some disappointments to it:

1. The power cell on mine is not completely circular, as if the piece wasn't completely solid when someone set it down after taking it from the mold.
2. The tarp or sack that sits behind the Scout is too large. It also would have been cool if the straps holding it down were painted a different color to stand out more.
3. Because the tarp/sack is too large, the thrust flaps cannot be opened all the way. At best, they open to about 45%. I wish they could open up completely though for speed instead of 'cruising'.
4. The stand is nice and is design so that you can display the bike at three different heights. I tried the tallest first, but found it difficult to find a balance sweet spot. Also, the long one is thin towards the top that when I tried to adjust the speeders position, it would twist, so I feared snapping that leg off. I ended up using the shortest leg, since having the long and medium on the ground provided the best balance... and I'm happy with that since I'm only buying one of the bikes.

Loved the trailer but knowing what's coming, it's kind of odd having it as one movie.  It'll have a weird pace to it I think.

I'm sure PJ can find enough filler material like he did to destroy the last one.  You know, the love triangle... that will probably end up being a Romeo and Juliet ending since the elf-chick is not in LotR.

I scored a glowing White Walker, too. But I didn't realize they were promoting it as a Comic Con exclusive. But to have it in stores nationally during SDCC?  That's a pretty cool promotion. 

Maybe Hasbro can learn something from Funko since not everyone can make it to a "Big Con" where they have such exclusives.  So Kudos to Funko for sharing it with everyone.  If those at the cons want something special, then maybe make a packaging change and not include or make a figure that fans would want *[cough] 6" Han Solo in Carbonite [/cough].

I have hit the locked levels on retail... and there are six left, I believe.  How lame.

Dr. Basher!! 

I guess the Baratheon children (sans Joff) are changing actors.

Yeah, I have, Nick.  I love that figure.  Might be my favorite of the wave.
