I got "coming this week now" messages for both Krennic and Thrawn

The use of the word "consensus" for this poll everywhere is rubbing me the wrong way.

Just found an HK Assassin Droid at a small Target.  Didnít expect that.

I canít remember, weíre there more than one with this body and paint scheme in the show or is he a one-off?  Wondering if Iím keeping my preorders or
canceling them.

Woah, new show toys at retail within a month of the show ending? What is this black magic *******?

There are definitely multiples. All of the ones in the Nightsister Temple were unique. I'm not sure if that means they all unique though. I plan on keeping a few extras of the basic figure, and fully expect we will see this again in a troop builder pack w/ the alternate decos.
Tangentially related, my daughter loved the Young Jedi show and watched all of it when it came to D+.  She wanted toys but there were none.  Yesterday I was at Wally and I noticed an entire line of figures (and vehicles!!),  Would have been nice to have when she was more into it.

No real point at this point to my post, but this line was in stores in June. I bought the three main Jedi kids.

I've had times where that happens on an item like this. Supposed to ship then gets delayed. I'd expect a refund message in next couple days. Then they'll recharge when actually ship.

That's fair. I overstated 10 tidy packages. But I'd rather hope to see more Baylon (however they'd do that now) and what's up with the Mortis statues than have them end it somehow because Filoni doesn't know if he's gonna get to finish it.

I hated Dave's (JD member) take on Shin. I'll take her kinda less than amazing ending with the hope there's more of her than another boring Inquisitor.

I think what I'm trying to say is I didn't love the finale, but I'd rather they leave stuff open to continue even if the don't, over too many completed arcs because it may not get another run.

I can't believe how many good stories you missed Muftak by not finishing Clone Wars and Rebels. You can do better.

I'm not thrilled with the amount of loose threads this season ended with, but the idea that we needed 10 tidy neat packages is also obnoxious to me. I'm super curious to know what ending for Thrawn people wanted? Especially when they could continue this at some point in some way. I think anything definitive with Thrawn at this point wouldn't be fair to his character.

As I'm typing this I'm remembering that Muftak and I do not agree on how storytelling needs to work.

I'll give the show a 7.5 of 10. I'm happy with that. Hope we get more. If not I'll wonder what happened to some of these characters for sure. And I'll be arrogant with Filoni and assume Ahsoka and Thrawn will get more story eventually.

Anyone else pre order Baylon and Shin on Amazon? Despite them being listed as February releases my orders say "they'll email when they have a release date". Wondering if I was slow and will end up waiting longer.

I want to but space is so limited. I've decided to just do imperial helmets so I have the Stormtrooper and Biker Scout helmets.

I hope they don't show us. With two episodes left I'd rather just assume it makes sense.

I didn't take it as romantic love. More in relation to Ezra's speech at end of "Rebels" and what he says to Sabine.

I have heard some people upset that it's hard to follow the show because they didn't watch "Rebels". I'm trying not to watch it expecting it to fully follow "Rebels". In "Ahsoka" I know Sabine feels very strongly about Ezra. To the point she is risking a lot of people's lives. I don't necessarily need the details of why. Again, especially with 50% of the season left. Maybe those flashbacks are still to come for a reason. It's like Rotten Tomatoes certifying the show "fresh" or not because critics saw two episodes.

But clearly they wanted it to be a conscious decision by her. It's like the end of "The Last of Us". I just think you're trying to fit her decision into how you want to keep thinking about her character (and that always triggers me since it's a huge part of the group that hates Disney Star Wars reason for hating Disney Star Wars). Her life is a lot different than when "Rebels" was happening. I'm going to let the next four episodes happen before I judge her choice too much.

I saw Sabine make the emotional selfish decision like people do all the time. "Moron" is not even sort of the correct word.

Muftak said exactly what I was thinking. Nothing but new tooled figures would be amazing but no chance they are close to only $30 each.

"Everyone" is not clamoring for those sets. Maybe I'm the only person who makes it not "everyone". I am not a huge playset person and not a huge fan of the modular giant ship or space station idea. I want large vehicles that wouldn't be sold at retail. The next large space eater to get cut from my collection will most likely be the playsets that are just sections of a ship, building, etc.

I think The Ghost was a very good choice. If possible I too wish they would have been able to match Haslab with the show better for maximum Ghost screen time but honestly don't know the ins and outs of how that works.

For me this could be the Ghost with no add ons and I'd be just fine with that. I'm only responding to Ed's post (and I'm not saying he's saying this) because I'm starting to read more and more " see, told you no one likes non OT stuff and here's proof with the Ghost slowing down so much".

Hasbro just stay away from role play and 6" scale stuff we already have 3.75" scale stuff of and it'll be a good choice, but no matter what they make some big group of us will and won't want to shell out the cash and space.
