It's pretty much a dead site. There is no way to continue the payment process because of an error.
Wow!  It wasn't until the thread went up that I realized a whopping 4 figures got knocked off of my 2013 TESB list!  So bye-bye to Snowspeeder Wedge, Han Solo in Carbonite, Yoda and Toryn Farr.  So who are the replacements?

Hey all,

I finally made my first Star Wars purchases in what seems like forever. Last night I grabbed the Prototype Boba Fett from Walgreens, and I have Jabba and a Speeder Bike on the way from Amazon. Can't wait to see those in person.

Happy hunting all!

A petition?  Really?  I am not a fan of the way they did it, but if that many people care to complain about it then job well done for Kirkman and team.  Getting that massive of a response just shows they did the right thing in having a meaningful death.  They have to get rid of main characters from time to time to keep it exciting and fresh.  Would people rather have seen someone else go?  Rick? Carl? Tyreese? Michone? Daryl?  Carol?  Pick your poison people.

I actually would have preferred Tyreese or Sasha. Or Tara, or Rosita or Eugene even. I feel like those characters have sort of come to the end of their own personal journeys whereas Beth could have gone in a number of interesting directions post-Dawn. I kinda felt the same way about Andrea though too, so it's nothing new I guess.

I saw it today and liked it.  Some nice LOTR nods and it ended just like I thought it would.

Well worth seeing in the theater.

They played the trailer here before the Hobbit in IMAX 3D.  That scene with the Falcon is epic!
Wow, I got 3 last year, including a Yoda with the cloth backpack I always wanted, even if Yoda kinda was meh.  I'm pretty pleased. :)

1 ) SA Lando (with removable cape)
2 ) Hoth Rebel Hangar Technician/Flight Mechanic/Whatever
3 ) Lt. Sheckill (Jeremy Bulloch Imperial)
4 ) Wedge Antilles, Snowspeeder Pilot Brown Coat Hoth Han w/hip articulation & softgoods for Taun Taun riding!
5 ) Hoth Luke (TVC Figure eats it IMO)
6 ) Human/Hunchback Ugnaught
7 ) Dagobah Luke Skywalker Resculpt SA Lobot...  Because.
8 ) Torryn Farr General Riekean Resculpt
9 ) Hoth Rebel Scout (Hoth Rebel Soldier w/more hyper articulation, basically)
10)  Treva Horme

I can't list it since it isn't a figure, but it's high f'n time the tripod laser cannon get a resculpt too.  These days they could make the thing fold up even.  We need that!  Ones we have are huge, and static.

Yeah, it really pains me not to have a complete collection anymore...  but paying ~$2000 to grab the DX chases just isn't something I can really do. :(

I agree Nick.  The Hobbit wasn't intended to be LOTR, but rather a little simpler, and so the story I think got a just adaptation from Jackson.  He said he wanted to beef it up to the level of LOTR and I think he took it from "kid's book" to that pretty well.  It wasn't ever going to be as good, but it was good.

I think it could've been two fairly long films, but I think 3 was fine ultimately.  I'll happily buy these as a set when they're out I think.
