The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Tiny Death Star app

Currently playing this for the past 2 months.  Interesting, but seems to have to keep up with it.  I'm at the point where it takes days to complete a level (I know, the sphere only gets larger!).  But it seems like the Emperor's missions would get bigger rewards as time goes on, too.

Also, it says to connect to facebook to save the DS (and earn more salvage droids), but when I connect, it's rarely there to save.

Yep, if you talk the talk, you damn sure gotta walk the walk.  ;)

I can almost feel the gentle breeze from the backpedalling now...

What if I've already evacuated my bowels?  >:D

All I know is, if I don't soil myself badly in the next hour and a half, I am going to feel utterly shortchanged after all these months of excretory anticipation.  :D

If it doesn't happen, it's time for the Ex-Lax, isn't it... after all that we've been saving up for this moment.  ;)

The limbs and head are pretty good with the glow, the chest area isn't as visible but there.  Pretty cool, though.

Haven't tried it yet, but visually he's a vibrant blue.  Icy, but not sure if he's accurate otherwise.

I found some at my b&n so you should be good.

There's also the matter of the Disney store.  Of all brick & mortar retail, they've started to be a go-to destination for Star Wars figures.  And TBS basic figures sell there for $10.99 each.

And $24.99 for 6".

To add to the price issue, and maybe it's proof or maybe it's shooting one's self in the foot, but K-Mart has upped their 6" prices from 19.99 to 21.99 online and in stores.

I want that Walker! Are these going to be stocked at retail stores too or just online?

Should be both... and supposedly, when I checked availability in-store, it said they were, but to call to see if they have any.  So I wonder if any have gotten to the stores yet?

Actually, 6" prices are going to go up a couple dollars in the next waves.

Someone else said that recently...  did I miss a memo?  Why does everyone think the price is going up?

I was looking at figures on Beyond Mortality yesterday.  Wave 5 and 6 figures are at 21.99, while earlier ones are 19.99 (including the Stormtrooper).

But, yeah, I feel that I can't spend too much more than that right now, so I might be pulling the plug on 6" figures. 

Actually, 6" prices are going to go up a couple dollars in the next waves.

What is it with TRU and sucky exclusives?

I doubt we can fault TRU too much.  I doubt they know when they get pitched these ideas whether there's any new SW figures or not, or if those 2 6" figures are still warming their pegs, in those exclusives.  Those in charge don't know figures like Jayson, Jeff or Jesse and others out there because they don't have one person who's a SW section expert, or Barbie, MLP, LPS, TFs, Hot Wheels, etc... They deal with thousands of different toys so if it looks good on paper, they probably sign up for it.

Saw some possible leaked plot points... if the beginning is what they say it is, I'll have to try hard to suspend my disbelief.

I believe I heard the SW figures are going to be in its own cardboard display.  Correct me if I'm wrong, if someone knows differently.
