I'm kind of bummed that Black Series is getting all the love.  It's like Hasbro hasn't noticed which Haslabs are successful.

I'm just hoping that they scale that set down to 3.75" soon.

Hmmm. Maybe Iíll be able to get this before I attend a con where the Krrsantan actor is going to be appearing.

I met him last year at Colorado Springs Comic Con.  Awesome guy!

Thanks for taking one for the team Rob.

Mine showed up from Amazon yesterday.  Box was a little damaged, but the ship is incredible!

Which books?  In Heir to the Empire the ysalimiri evolved to negate the Force around them to hide from the vorksnyrs who used the Force to hunt.  Thrawn used them as protection against Joruus C'Baoth and Luke Skywalker.

Yeah, I am referring to the Heir to the Empire Trilogy. Thrawn's master plan is to grow a Clone Army, and once he finds Wayland's location with its cloning facility he starts harvesting ysalimiri. He didn't know he would find C'baoth there, but had contingency plans if he ever discovered a Dark Jedi to team up with.

And I don't think he ever worried enough about Luke as the last Jedi to make a formal plan against him. The ysalamiri he carried around on Fleet ships were protection for the crew from crazy C'baoth as he learned to coordinate individual Imperial minds.

(In the end, I don't think the crates on Ahsoka have ysalamiri in them...that would have needed set up or referenced by Ezra in some way to work...)

Thrawn picked up the Ysalimiri because he knew (or at least had a strong suspicion) that Emperor Palpatine had left a dark side force user to protect Wayland.  Thrawn used the cloning cylinders to clone his best troops so he could crew the dark fleet quickly.  He made a bargin with Joruus C' Bayoth to use battle meditation to help coordinate his troops and offered up Luke Skywalker as a psooible apprentice for him.

As far as the caskets, I'm wondering if they are more night sisters.  Thrawn mentioned waking up the three mothers shortly after his arrival on Peridia.

Found three of these on clearance Friday, so I bought those and cancelled my Amazon order.

So target pushed the date to 8 October and I don't recall seeing an update e-mail.  There are apparently 8 in stock at my local target, but I did not see them on Friday when I was there.

72
Are any of you thinking about splitting it up that way?

That's exactly how I plan to set this up.

The Huyang looks nice, but I hope they do the colors better on the final product.  I like the Chopper...a nice upgrade from the Disney figure from a few years ago.  Krennic is cool...should've been made 7 years ago.

The pipelines were a yawn fest with the exception of the Mando.  That troop builder pack is a waste.  They should make four different packs, one for each battalion!

Iím wondering if they will flash back to explain that as well. I mean, the Purrgil had literally broken through all the windows on the bridge, and Iím no physics major but Iím pretty sure you canít go through hyperspace Al Fresco  :D

I just figured there were emergency shields that keep the atmosphere from venting.
