If the speeder bikes are in the movie, it'll be interesting to see if the hand grips are in same the position on the toy (vertical.) Having trouble with Hasbro going back to 1980's toy design.  :P

Glad to get a good look at these before the launch date. They look pretty good, but I really don't know if I want to go back to 5 POA figures and may pass of most of these. Hoping the 3 3/4" black series figures will make up for my early disappointment.

I have no idea on Earth where I'd put one of these, but I still want one. It's so cool.

Thanks Siddy! I kept trying to think of how to direct Jeff back on course, but we've gotten to know each other decently enough that it's making me soft on him. He's a real genuine guy. But, I also think it shows that they're obviously personally excited about the 6 inch line.

Funny how my timing can be so off with HTS. Been checking every day for new postings and the one day I can't, they go up.  :P

Wow! I am so out of the loop. Went to Disneyland on Monday with the express intent of picking up a few more of the wave 1 domes I never got and was bummed to learn that wave 1 is discontinued. Not a fan of the waves 2 and 3 stuff, though I did build some imperial droids, including "goldie."

Same here - Carbonite Han and Jawas are shipping... but Mosep, Boushh, and Thorn are not.  Strange.

I hope this doesn't portent a repeat at HTS: One new figure every other day.

Lando - Skiff Guard
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Snow Trooper
Imperial Navy Officer
Leia - Hoth/Bespin Escape
General Veers

Someone gave me a heads up that both Leia Boushh and IG88 were on Amazon for $16.09. Managed to get IG88 in my cart but by the time I went to check out, the pricing error got caught and they were removed.  :'(

I just opened this set myself last night. This is one of the few times that I've ever actually been down on a release wave and as I studied the figures, moved all their joints and such, I realized why: Half of the figures use out of scale parts within themselves. For example, Rex's head is just too small as is Wolf's and his torso. Vader's head is too big and awkward. I think that right there is what makes this wave a disappointment.

Got mine too. Can't thank Paul enough for going through the effort of helping so many people out.

HTS finally put up Doom. I just don't get why it took so long.  ???

Well, I had an adventure yesterday. Did my first extended toy run in ages. Sadly, all I came up with from the 3.75 line is one Cmdr Doom at Target. But, here's what really bothered me:

Hit my first TRU, nada. Asked them to check the stockroom which they did with no fuss. Still nada. The manager asked if he could check other stores for me. "Heck, yeah!" I said. Porter Ranch TRU, a very nice store, was supposed to have 16 on hand. Knew it wasn't R5's because I had been there a few days before. They were empty. I raced over there. Nothing. Not even shelf space for them. Brought a picture of the UPC I snapped at the previous TRU, asked them to look at the counter. "Yep, computer says we have 16." They called a guy to look. He came out. Here's what the deal is with this store:

Last case of black series 3.75 they got was December of 2014. The 16 in the system were stolen and never purged for the system. Because of the high incident of theft with the line, they decided they wouldn't carry it.

I know that this is just one item in a store of thousands, but how this can get handled in such a half-assed way with management continuing to retain positions in the company is just sad.

Thanks to you, I found Luke Stormtrooper and the Emperor at Target as well yesterday.

I also found Han Taun Taun at Target!

Picked up Dutch, Chewie and an INC from TRU. These are definitely the last to go.
