Found a Kmart in my area that actually had some Hobbit stuff and scored quite a few items on the cheap.  Mostly just goblins for my "army" that I really just let my son play with.

Isn't the TRU exclusive GI Joe Tomahawk supposed to retail for $39.99?  Based on that, I would think that this thing should stay under $100.00... but who knows.

The Axel death was a shocker.  He does sneak off and kill some of the women in the comics, so I'm sure the writers switched that one around to surprise the fans of the book.  He would have been too predictible as a killer from within and the group's spread pretty thin as it is until Tyreese gets back.  Speaking of which, were they too far away to hear all of the gunfire?  I wonder where they snuck off to...

Actually, that's not Axel who murders the women.  It's Thomas - Link.

I wish the Kmarts around here had these.  I've checked all three stores and see no sign of them anywhere.

That's something Star Wars can't get away with too much. Night Strike Luke Skywalker and Jungle Camo Vader seem unlikely to be approved by Lucasfilm.

Yeah, and thankfully that's the case.

All the more reason for them however to utilize good army builder molds more often and add spice it up with head variants, weathering, etc.  They used to be a lot better with that sort of thing than they have been the past couple years.

4.) There still appears to be strong demand for some kind of modular Death Star playset.  Can you tell us if anything like this is on the horizon or even under consideration? 

This is when they laugh and tell us that this is a stupid idea.  Because they have proven time and again that they know exactly what they're doing, and we need to quit asking for dioramas/playsets. 

...I'm so sick of Hasbro's ********.

Here's a Q "I was reading that Iron Man figures were going to be 6:00, and have less articulation.  Is this the way that SW is going?"

Personally, if they did this with style, like the Bespin Luke fro the recent Battle Pack, I'd be ok with it.  If they made the main line, simpler, and more cost effective, and then 20-25 Vintage style figures a year, I think that would be good.

I've read that too, but preorder cases that I've seen adds up to $10 per figure...

It won't be answered but I hope someone asks about the declining quality of plastic/paint, specifically on the first wave of 2013 Class I vehicles. The ships look like they're cheap Happy Meal toys and the paint on the figures is awful. The Yoda's eyes are painted on his cheeks... that's worse than the Indiana Jones line

I couldn't agree more. I've passed on all the new deluxes - the vehicles look awful in person.  The only one that I am remotely considering getting is the MTT set.

The Tantive IV Stormie is a really nice figure, but doesn't have an articulated waist - I think it's based on the Evolutions Sandtrooper mold, or pretty close.  I like it more than the VOTC mold.

Awesome army...

I passed on that Stormie though because I can't stand the helmet...

...that helmet is such a letdown.  I still can't believe Hasbro used it.

My favorite Stormtrooper is the one that came with the Target Special Action figure 3-pks... same as the TVC Sandtrooper essentially, but the 3-pk version seemed to have better paint jobs, much better belts, and no yellowing anywhere to speak of.  At least in my experience.  I don't know if I even have any VOTC Stormies left, I traded/sold them off... and gave some to my son.

Thanks Jesse - guess I'll need to keep my eyes open.  I haven't seen them at those retailers yet, and I hit quite a few Wal-Marts on a frequent basis.  Maybe when they do their resets soon they'll make a spot for them.

...also would like to see the brown wizard and his rabbit sled... the Necromancer would be cool too.

They're showing up at Wal-Mart too now?  That's great news.  I'm glad to see them pick up the line... maybe this summer when there's supposedly new product out (wave 2, etc.) we'll see a larger footprint for this line... it's a pretty nice line so far, just not as much variety as I'd like to see... but maybe that's a good thing - too much at once for a launch can kill a line (ahem... Hasbro...).

I hope this summer, we see more characters like Sauramon, Elrond, Galadriel, the obese dward, the white Orc, and those awesome mountain trolls... also, a new tooling for Bilbo, maybe he can come as a deluxe with a horse or something.

I've seen them at a couple other places, like Barnes & Noble and Vintage Stock.

After seeing the movie this weekend finally, there's quite a bit more from the film that I've love to see them make.
