Saw Cap 2 last night. Far and away the best Marvel/Avengers movie. Tied, if not slightly ahead of TDK for my favorite comic movie. The action is practically nonstop, the fighting (choreography/style) is so well done it will be tough to improve upon. And if you like military firepower (weapons/explosions/tactics) this is as good as any spy thriller/espionage out there. The 3D was well utilized and didn't feel forced - I'll see it a couple more times in theaters for sure.

The post credit scenes were great, too.

I mentioned your collection Justin on a recent podcast I was on. The other on the show were thouroughly impressed.

Anyone have a real favorite in this wave? For me it's a toss up with Merumeru (due to size and sculpt) and Vizam (due to OT factor). Plagueis I'm really indifferent toward. Neyo is cool but I'm surprised how heavy they went with the weathering. Mace is lamen

I thought the Snags/Droids set came out together, but didn't recall a 3rd set.  Again though it's so easy to forget because it is old stuff in a new box.  I thought all that wave had a new figure in each set though?

What was the wave of 3-packs before it?  Was that the 9-pack set?

Vintage 9pk
- Imperial Set (4-LOM, AT-AT Driver, TIE Pilot)
- Hoth Rebels (Hoth Han, Hoth Rebel Trooper, FX-7)
- Bespin Alliance (Bespin Guard, Lando, Bespin Luke)

Villian Set (Stormtrooper, Vader, Death Star Trooper)
Hero Set (X-wing Luke, Obi-Wan, Han)
Rebel Set (2-1B, Hoth Leia, Hoth Rebel Trooper)

Android Set (Chewy, R2, 3PO)
Imperial Forces Set (Bossk, Snowtrooper, IG-88)
Imperial Set (Imperial Commander [gray], AT-AT Driver, Dengar)

Droid Set (R5-D4, Death Star Droid, Power Droid)
Villian Set (Snaggletooth, Boba Fett, Sand People)

I'd be willing to help out with photography as well.

My point about the store report was not some inane "hey look at me" self-wank

Haha.  That just read funny.

We appreciate anyone reporting their finds, especially new stuff...  It helps everyone, ultimately.

No kidding. Since McMetal's post I've been hitting stores far more than my typical patterns. Alas, no luck yet.  :'(

Yep, I passed on the Android set as well due to repacks. Hasbro would have been better served if they were to have introduced more new figure sculpts/repaints like they did with Snags and the GNK Droid. Sure they were a nice homage to the originals, but the overall concept could have been easily modified to get us "throwback" repaint DS Commander or vinyl cape Jawa. Even a TVC Ponda Baba molded in vintage blue/orange would have been awesome.

I've seen several of times. Don't pay that - I could pick one up for you if you want on my next sighting.

Started and finished True Detective. Some of the best dialogue in a series since The West Wing and Breaking Bad.

And what was that about Skywalker at the end almost like it was thrown in there just to make it sound like ROTJ. I didn't get that. Hope i'm not throwing any spoilers out there.

Yoda was seeing (albeit clouded) events in the future - Order 66, Sidious cutting down Mace and Co. in his office and finally, he saw his own death.
