Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

It's just a way to sell more product.  ;)

I'll be interested in seeing how these walkers perform in the grand scheme of things.  Will they be easier to destroy (lighter armor?) than the ATs?  To me, it felt like the Rebels first encountered the ATs on Hoth (even though they knew of them) since they had inadequate firepower to take them down and only realized using the tow cables would work if they could get close enough.  The Rebels seemed unsure of how to defeat them.

My read on that was that the speeders couldn't take them down.  I thought perhaps an X-wing or Y-wing could do it, but they needed the X-wings to escort the transports.  Never saw a Y-wing on Hoth.

I snagged a First Order Battle Pack yesterday along with some clearanced City sets at my local LEGO Store to get the Captain America motorcycle polybag. The manager told me the summer SW sets would be in stock around June 20th.

Still need to finish off the TFA line, but I'll probably pick up most of the sets on Amazon throughout the summer.

With most of the modern lines I collect ending (Walking Dead, Pacific Rim) or on hiatus (SW 6") I've been refocusing my attention on older stuff lately.

Today I received a totally boss MISB V "Enemy Visitor" 12" figure which I won on eBay recently. This thing is so great. Pity we never got the 3&3/4" figures.

These have finally hit an attractive clearance price at Target. I picked up some extra 5th Element figures yesterday for $2.98 a pop. Not quite as good as the $2 blowout at Barnes and Noble, but close.  ;D

Also grabbed a Terminator and Gracie Law this morning. Not sure what I will ultimately end up doing with these guys but I find that price hard to pass up for the value.

Really wish I could find some Gremlins because that's the one ReAction line I never picked up despite some interest.

Yeah, they were like $8.74 when I checked this morning...that is a great price. I wouldn't mind having another green helmet guy or two, but no way of telling what you would actually receive.

Resistance Trooper is now under $10 at Amazon if anyone is looking to army build.  Zuvio still twice the price.

I just don't see the need to differentiate.  If the mid section is swappable, then swap out the troop carrier for cargo containers as needed.  It is still an "Armored Transport" regardless of what it's transporting.  I like the concept - just not the name.

Grabbed the following sets over the past couple of days:
30277: First Order Star Destroyer (eBay)
30279: Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle (eBay)
75148: Encounter on Jakku
75149: Resistance X-wing Fighter
75151: Clone Turbo Tank

Gonna hold off on the other five Summer Sets for now, there is bound to be a Toys R Us promotion for the 5004406: First Order General polybag - so I'll want something to be worth buying so I can get that for free...

Hall of Justice / Re: LEGO Does the DC Universe

Picked up the following sets recently...

10724: Batman & Superman vs. Lex Luthor (Juniors Set - bought it mostly for the Lex Minifigure)
6858: Catwoman Catcycle City Chase
10937: Batman: Arkham Asylum Breakout

I'm eyeing up getting 76023: The Tumbler - just to finish off the "big" DC sets, might hold off on that just because I have all of the Star Wars summer sets to get, plus there are Marvel and DC Summer Sets coming soon... UGH
