New 2018 sets revealed, along with the most ridiculous price to piece ratio to this point. How much of this goes towards the Disney licensing fee? Good grief.

Anakin's Clone Wars Jedi Starfighter = $19.99

Hoth Bacta Tank = $29.99

Advent Calendar (SPOILERS) = $39.99

Snoke's Throne Room = $69.99

X-Wing = $79.99

Imperial Landing Craft = $89.99

Sandcrawler = $139.99

Hmm, do airlines offer wholesale pricing on flights? We could go to Japan to pick this up, then get some SH Figuarts figures while we're there  :D

Kind of off topic...

Does anyone have any advice on the effect of temperature on lego pieces?

Iím considering leaving a few organizer boxes in my trunk to work on a custom build during lunch at work But summer is coming and I donít want to warp any parts or cause any other problems. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

LEGO is plastic so I would assume it would be similar to leaving a Hasbro figure in your car. Fine for a few hours, maybe. I personally wouldn't do it.

This is pretty cool and all, but it makes me wonder why Hasbro doesn't just rehash other figures in special packs like they do in the 3.75 inch line. Not counting the 40th Anniversary Collection, the only 6 inch figures I can think of that have seen rereleases/repaints are the Stormtrooper, Sandtrooper, Clone Trooper, and the Han/Greedo Cantina set, and surely there aren't too many people army building 6 inch figures?

Completely opposite in my area than what Brian posted. Target is the only store to have gotten these, and Snoke is sitting. Oddly he's the only one I need but I haven't pulled the trigger yet due to paint app issues. Jyn and Rey are also hanging around too. Kylo, Hoth Trooper, and the FO Stormtrooper are always the first to go, and I haven't seen those particular figures since I saw them at Gamestop on April 13.

I wound up getting a few random TLJ sets from LEGO Shop for May the 4th to break the $75 threshold for BB-8. The deals were lacking, to put it lightly.

Whoops, I preordered last night at midnight when I was getting all my LEGO stuff out of the way. If I contact EE, do you think they'd change it so I could get the sponsor credit for JD?

I've still yet to see any Solo 5POA figures in stores. I've seen the Lando 2 pack and the Maul/Qui Gon 2 pack but nothing else in the yellow packaging. I assume Target sold out and just hasn't restocked, but Walmart just hasn't stocked anything period. Only thing you can buy at my local WMs are lightsabers

I got lucky and got one of these last night. There were 3 total, all in the endcap, and all of them were the error reported by Yakface with no pump handle on the shotgun. So I guess I'm also going to be on the hunt for the corrected version.

Also of note, they all had less than stellar paint jobs on the eyes. I got the most decent one, but the eyes all ranged from "crosseyed" to "derp derp derp"

Hasbro buys Power Rangers franchise from Saban

I wonder if they'll throw Power Rangers into the Hasbro Cinematic Universe mix?

Sorry, I didn't realize this was a non-spoiler thread

Fantastic. I haven't heard a theater so silent at the end of a movie since Batman vs Superman... but this was a GOOD silence. It was an intense movie.

Last remark deleted. No spoliers please.

ROTS Anakin went up for presale overnight... and sold out fast! I had to get one through a site called CDJapan that took the payment at the time of order, so that stunk.

Also got a payment request for the ANH Vader. Here's a comparison pic of the old Vader (left) and the new Vader (right):

My stores were out of good stuff long before the bankruptcy was announced, and haven't gotten anything new. Anything good like the stuff from the "collectors aisle" and most LEGO was sent back to the manufacturers. The same 50+ Zuvios and Finns that didn't sell for $20 are shockingly not selling for $18

That stadium is about 15 miles from me! It belongs to the Round Rock Express, minor league team for the Rangers, and owned by Nolan Ryan's son Reid. Fear was filming there most of last summer/fall.

The team is doing a Walking Dead night next month, where the team will wear the uniforms from the show. I preordered the Armadillos hat they made a small amount of. :)
