My guess is that someone else will pick it up. It's just a question of who.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts

Question: These are non-exclusives outside the US, correct? I'm in the UK next week, wondering if I should try ti have a look anywhere.

Is it me. or did the total go down from 2671 to 2658 sometime overnight? Up to 2668 now, but I could swear there was a negative adjustment.

I picked mine up. I know the Exclusive Emperor 3 pack is an exclusive, but I still wonder how one justifies offering a 3-pack and 4-pack for the same price?

I've been noticing random surges in orders. I check in a few times a day, sometimes it'll tick up 3 or 4, yesterday I noticed a surge of about 40 or more over the course of a few hours. I am worried, though. Seems like we'll be lucky to get to 4K. Hope I'm wrong.

It's going to be hard to image life without TRU, if this happens. I've made a fair share of impulse buys of non-SW items while browsing for SW and the midnight madness events have been great excuses to take a break from life and geek out with good friends for a day. Hoping they're figure out a way to keep things going.

Didn't realize I hadn't even given my unofficial thoughts. Made a list of the original vintage figures and tried to look at gaping holes or major upgrades needed. I'd have to say:

- Sim Aloo
- Bespin Guard - Bearded or Mustache
- EV-9D9

Well, I'm official. Took me long enough, but my order is in.

Any pics of that cancelled Hoth playset?

Are you referring to the image of the Probe droid that surfaced?  Check out Gorkoracing's Instagram.  He's got images of the Probe droid, a couple of figures and an echo base console.  But that was it.  Still, the info surrounding that seemed to indicate that it might have been in the works as recently as 5 years ago.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like the engineer has ball jointed elbows, yes? Personally, I thought the Gunner swivel joins worked perfectly, but still would have been nice to see the upgrade.

I really wish I was in NC so I can hit up that WM that had all those ERG and Deathtroopers. I'd be kind of like a dream if I could army build cheep.

There was about a 6 month period during the TAC days where this one Walmart that was near Paul had TONS of army builders and all their SW figures rang up as like $3.25.  He'd call me once a week or so and ask me what I wanted... It's where I got half of my Stormtroopers... I got tons of Yavin Guards, Galactic Marines, Airborne Troopers, Jawas... it was amazing.

Oh, yeah! Back in the Saga 2 days, same thing at one of our WMs. For months, all SW figures were $3.50. They kept getting in fresh cases and I built my Republic armies as well as a full platoon of Sandtroopers. Good days.

Great one!

- Death Star - Modular
- Hoth set - the one that was cancelled.
- Unproduced Imperial Outpost from the 80's

Imperial Scanning Trooper from the K-Mart set that had the "roof" of the crate
Jawas (2 pack from 2014-15)
Scariff Stormtrooper

Great choices.

Hmmm. I guess the Hoth Luke falls under this...

Hoth Luke
X Wing Luke It's good, but could be better.
Weequey (Skiff Master) Something off about those shoulders.

I'm up for anything that'll help complete the original 92/3 run. And we still need a Stormtrooper on a Star Wars card.
