Picked up the UCS TIE Fighter and got the Admiral Yularen figure at my local Lego Store yesterday.

I also ordered the UCS X-Wing from the Lego Shop@Home site, hadn't picked that set up yet...

I too grabbed a few at my local LEGO Store today when I went to grab the May 4th Yularen. They were pretty picked over, so I randomly grabbed four - Hibbert, Smithers, Marge and Moleman.

I still have extras of a few Series 1 figs if anyone here needs them!

Are you saying CA:TWS and GotG were just "alright"?!?

Winter Soldier and Guardians were really good, but Iron Man 2 and Thor 2 left a lot to be desired, IMO. I felt AoU fell below the first two but above those last two. Maybe I was too hyped up for it, or maybe I was expecting someone to be offed. I dunno.

To save not looking?  Well worth the $6.99. :)

The WiiU should do nicely for 5-8 year olds. There isn't a lot available for that age group on the Xbox one or ps4.

Well, unless you're going to buy a ton of games, I'd absolutely go with an XBox One or Playstation.  We got the XBox one for Christmas and both the kids love to play it.  We started off with Disney 2.0, which has a create mode (think Minecraft, but not just cubes of stuff) for all kinds of custom playhouses.  I think it came with a Dance-off sort of game as well.  Then we grabbed a few Lego-based games - Sam's favorite is the Marvel Super Heroes.  His latest acquisition was the Skylanders Trap Force, which is a lot like Infinity where you have to buy the characters to play them.  This has the added element of buying traps to capture bad guys in - then you can play the bad guys in the game.  I've heard good things about the PS4 as well - I don't think you can go wrong with either of those.  You're also coming in at a time where ou might be able to get the games/system/figures for a lot less than last year.

This Hollywood Reporter article seems to indicate that nobody is in a hurry to defend Josh Trank and the way he conducted himself on the set of the FF reboot.  And it seems that producer Simon Kinberg likely had a significant role in pushing for Trank to be fired from the second Star Wars anthology film.

Grabbed my full set at the Lego Store after seeing Avengers this morning.  Took about 20 minutes to go through and find a full set (Homer and Dr. Hibbert are the toughest to tell apart).  Plus I had $120 in VIP points racked up, so I didn't pay anything.

Thoughts from those that have seen it - OK for my two 8 (almost 9) year olds? 

I've seen mixed reviews on language/violence levels... especially since it starts out with a "bang".

Sam and I caught up on Cap2, Thor2, and IronMan3 this week, so we're heading out to see Avengers Sunday morning @ Southdale.  If your boys were fine with the other Marvel adventures, I think they'll be fine with this too.  I'll let you know if I feel differently afterwards though.

They've been at all 3 Targets I've stopped at in the last two days. 

Setup looks just like Jayson's pic.  Sorry bro.
