The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2

I'm not on Facebook. Where did Yak Face get this image from? The stuff on the shelf are the Disney die-cast figures, right?

Yeah. I can't remember the last time my local WM's had any 3.75 figures before yesterday. I want these bad. This is the line I'm most interested in, but fear I'll not be able to track them down.

I may skip on this entirely. There's nothing here for me.

I wrote a little blurb about my MM experience in the Recent purchases thread.

Okay. Despite my lack of enthusiasm for the line, I still picked up a fair amount. However, I still haven't warmed up to it. Excited to hear about the return of vintage and the black series, so I'm waiting for more word on these items before I decide how I'm going to treat the 5 POA figures. At this point, I may just leave it all packaged. Though, I did play with an open Ray with speeder and found it to be pretty cool.

I'm a sucker. Had to pre-order.

Perhaps we should move all this to the POTF2 boards?

Line of the year!

Wow! What a bust for midnight madness. I couldn't believe how little product was out there. I have to caveat that I was lucky and got most of what I wanted, but the sheer lack of product for the crowds that amassed was appalling.

A few buddies and I arrived at the Burbank TRU at 10:30am. First in line. Three of us at first. Camped out, played games, caught up with each other. Around noon, management told us that they had only 5 cases of 6 inch and hadn't unloaded the rest of the palates yet. Also said that the line was getting long at Los Filez (a bigger store) and that they had less stock. First person behind showed up soon after, then left. Three more of our party showed up and the guy who left returned at 4pm to be in the same exact spot behind us. More people did't start showing up until 6pm. By then, we heard the other stores line was pretty big. Our line didn't really start going until 8pm, then just grew.

When we finally got let in the store, they only let 10 people in at a time. We were first 10. We were all shocked at how little of the figures were there. They must have gotten only 5 cases of each assortment. Although it was fairly calm getting my figures, which included all of the wave 1 six inch (no wave 2 there) and all of the stormtroopers, Kylo and a select few other figure I wanted right off the bat. The others I figure I can pick up later. Picked up all the vehicle except the x-wing, of course. After the third group of 10, the store was pretty much wiped out of figures and there were still more than 200 people in line. Even Seth Green (in line behind us) got denied. Ran into a buddy today who was way back in line who went in anyway after we left and said they kept the store open and just let people walk in to see for themselves that there was were no figures. I'm just so shocked over this.

Wow! Cool set. Will definitely pick this up.

Wow. I can't believe I'm down on just about everything tomorrow night has to offer, 3 3/4" wise. Going back to the vintage sized ships is weird. I get why they're doing it, I'm just not a fan. These items I won't be opening if I pick these up. I'll wait for larger scale versions so I can put them along side my current Imperial and Rebel fleets.

I honestly not sure I want to pick up everything. I'm not too wild at all about the 5 POA style, but I'll pick up the Stormtroopers and 6 inch for sure.

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
