When they first said, "don't tell the council, the senate will find out", I thought they wanted to explain why Jedi council isn't in show. But once the episode ended I took it to be how they will explain TPM's reaction to Maul.

One thing in the Star Wars universe that I'm kind of tired of is cute droid sidekicks.

My daughter; lover of Lola, Chopper, and now Pip; would like a word with you. :P.  At least this droid side-kick isn't just an astromech and they tried to do something a little different.

I think I speak for many when I say I would have liked to have seen a lot more from that character before their untimely exit. 

100% agree. Was really disappointed by how that whole sequence on Khofar played out.  And the cliffhanger ending was just mean.

How dare you share a non 50 year old white heterosexual male opinion about Star Wars.

This is just another weird conversation to me. My mortgage is paid just fine every month. It's still nice to have a general idea how many things are hitting at one time. So thank you Amazon for the updates even if I'm sure the date will change again.

And even if someone is living on a tighter budget, who cares what "enjoyment" things they choose to buy. Having specific release dates would be very helpful for them to not irresponsibly spend some month

Two episodes in, I won't be surprised if this turns out really good or really bad.

I'm excited. Bunch of Jedi. Different era. Not sure what not to be excited about.

I'm with Nick. This isn't about "one person wanting one figure". It's about not changing the standard for one person.

I don't actually think the Tonnikas will be a part of this. So this would then be a unnecessary discussion.

But to me it's too extreme. Of course this tactic has been used forever. But the long term collectors have clamored too long for these figs to have them a part of a $400 item.

Maybe there are other examples and because I either didn't care or bought the item, I'm being unreasonable.

Or maybe I'm over thinking what the Tonnikas mean to people.

Yes but I'm not a casual collector. I am clamoring for the Tonnika sisters. I don't want a playset for $400. It would be a dick move to then stick them in a set that costs $400 when they (not that they are gonna make them) finally do make them. All they are doing is annoying one of the people that still buys most of their product. One of the few people that doesn't think everything they do is already a dick move. I don't have to be on an extreme budget to not want the cantina.

Just got mine as well and totally agree with Rob.

I almost never complain about what Hasbro does. If they lock the Tonnikas behind this pay wall I will be outraged. Do a multi pack figure set shortly after, but do not make them a part of this.

For those buying these (Rob), do you think one could make a squad of Stormtroopers that would look OK if they were not with regular 3.75 figs?

Yes thanks Rob. I canceled my Stormtrooper pre order and any thoughts of it being army building worthy.

The Retro TPM 6 Pack hasn't gone up for pre order yet has it?

Anyone know if Grogu and Mando are different from previous releases?
FYI some of these are up on Amazon for $12 now
