Anyone excited to see what's going to be online tomorrow at the first officially licensed LFL store ever?  I'll pick up a Indy Kermit if I can, and check out what sort of Action Figure stuff they have but the high end stuff they are listing seems cool and all...but I doubt I'd want to spend the change they will be wanting for it

Hopefully they will offer some retail stuff.  Its nice for people who collect some of the high end and obscure stuff, but I still am a little disappointed in the offerings.  Heres hoping that changes.

If they have action figures for about retail, I'll buy some. The last couple of waves are MIA here. And I want an Indy Kermit.

It will be interesting to see what they have. Expect a slow down when they come online.

The should carry retail figures, if not why open the store?  They will hopefully carry all new SW merchandise.

Define "tomorrow".  I want that Kermit and maybe something else too.  Hard to say though.  Not many $100+ items are likely to appeal.  I've got enough expensive habits as it is.

Hopefully they will offer some retail stuff.

The Q&As with GH and Scum indicated that the store was gonna carry Hasbro Action Figures, but it would be case-purchases only, no individual figure sales unless they were exclusive figures or sold in sets...


From Scum:
Will the store sell individual Star Wars figures like Jawa Trader did?

[Paul Ens] Exclusive figures will naturally be sold individually. Basic figures will be sold initially only in case-packs, which has become common online. We're working with Hasbro to evaluate other strategies going forward.

I am coming here to beg... Someone, anyone, please for the love of God...

I have to work tomorrow, and strongly doubt I will be able to get there when they open.

Can someone order the Green Clone Sergeant mini bust for me? You will be fully compensated of course ;) I'd love it if I could get the Jedi patches as well, but if you want to keep those I completely understand.

Email me at aclowe@tds.net if you can help a fella out!

I am excited only for what they may possibly offer...  The oddball stuff like army builder sets, "rare" figures, etc...  I'm not counting on this though.  

Sadly, I don't think LFL's going to devote a lot of attention to this store, and they'll let it fade into obscurity by simply not acknowledging what "the fans" are interested in.  I'm excited to see what they do, but just not hopeful because of the dismal failures all other stores have been.

What I am curious about is will the Fan Club work in conjunction with this site, or will they be independant and offer their own exclusive product as before?  The official fan club is being kinda weird lately, what with its cryptic front page message, and absolutely no reaction to this site's opening.

From the list of items I've seen, the only thing I'm really interested in (or that I can actually-probably-afford) is the Indy Kermit figure.  I grew up on the Muppets and I love the Indy films, so this is like fanboy heaven for me.  My main concern is that this will be a very limited item like the other Palisades Muppet con exclusives; you would think that LFL would order a lot, as it's sure to be one of the hotter items tomorrow, but if I've learned anything in my years of collecting, it's that people always either over-estimate or under-estimate demand.

I just want my Kermit figure!  Is that so wrong? :D
