The terrible urge to run out and buy everything Praetorian Guard is getting stronger...........

Looked to me like there were 8 total guards, 2 of each of the 4 unique weapons. Hasbro has made 3 of the 4 (Rey 2 pack, Kylo Force Link 2 pack, BB-8 playset), not counting the 3.75 inch Black Series figure, meaning to have a complete set you'd have to double up on them and wait for the 4th to be made.

Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on this

I ordered this online over the weekend since Target had 20% off all Star Wars toys. With free shipping to my store, it came out to like $24 total. I'll be able to pick it up later today.

Ok, after two screenings and two days to reflect, I still like the film. It's hard to rank though, as the Disney films still don't feel like "true Star Wars films" and thus I don't know if I could accurately rank them among Episodes 1-6.

Love the Holdo character and the entire bit with her sacrifice (but what was with the entire hangar being blown to hell but Finn and Rose are all fine?). Loved the ending shot with the kid using the Force to sweep. Loved the intro battle and how easily the slow bombers got blown to bits. I enjoyed the one liners even if some of them felt a bit forced.

My favorite part of the movie? Hux overlooking the damage to Snoke's throne room and pulling his pistol out, then putting it away when Kylo wakes up.

I still think the CGI was embarrassingly bad. I mentioned Yoda (though he looks better as that scene goes on) but the green screen backgrounds were painfully obvious as well. George Lucas would have never put out SFX that looked that shoddy. I thought Snoke was the only thing that felt complete.

Agreed that the casino needed some of the classic aliens. Not even any Twi'lek side pieces? I remember reading that Disney wanted new aliens to show how big the galaxy is, but whatever they put in the casino felt pretty uninspired. Canto Bight would have been a perfect opportunity for a Lando cameo too.

Christopher Reeve Superman Leia is weirder the more I think about it.

I think my biggest complaint outside of the CGI is that it felt more like a conclusion than a middle part of a story. After seeing TFA I had so many theories (and wanted to read everybody else's theories) about the characters and where they would go. Now? I don't really care. I'm fine with Rey's parents being nobodies, but that just opens up a huge can of worms regarding why the Skywalker lightsaber called to her, among other plot holes. The only true question I have now is "do Poe and Rey bang."

I wouldn't mind a Holdo figure as I liked her character

I missed the "exclusive" content because I was in a long line to get a free popcorn/soda included with the price of my ticket. Apparently it was just a behind the scenes look at John Williams making the soundtrack. No Han Solo trailer.

I just got out... and immediately bought a ticket for a showing in an hour lol. This movie is GOOD. It's weird though, it doesn't "feel" like a Star Wars movie... maybe because they took everything we know about the series and completely flipped it upside down

Literally the only negative I have is that I thought the CGI on Yoda was really bad.

My Mustang mentioned above finally went to car heaven the day before Thanksgiving. I got a bad prognosis from my mechanic last week that the engine was totally shot, and replacing it would cost more than the car is worth.

So long story short, this weekend I bought a 2018 Honda Civic over the weekend! I had been looking at them since the summer, and since used Civics from within the last 5 years are only about 3k less than new ones, I decided to buy new. I was hoping to get a 2017 because of potential deals since the 2018s were out, but they weren't negotiating anything, so I decided to go with a 2018 since they were only $100 more. Plus they had the color I wanted in a 2018!

Never had a car payment before (My Mustang was paid for with cash from me, my parents, and my grandparents), so that will probably mean less Star Wars toys, but that's kind of a worthy payoff.

What's the deal with Target doing the 10% Gift Card promo on December 3? People on the Star Wars Discord chat are saying you can get this for 10% off that day, but I'm skeptical.

Album of new figures shown off at Tokyo Comic Con

ROTS Obi-Wan, ROTS Anakin, Dooku, Clones, Astromechs, and more!

Got mine price matched with tonight. So if you find these in stores, that is another option

It was $34.99 in store... I didn't know that sale was still going on on I'm going to get the price adjusted today!

These hit my local TRU today and I snagged one. A pleasant surprise seeing as this TRU has not stocked any new Black Series since TFA Wave 2

I finally bit on this one today for $38 on Amazon. This line has completely vanished from my local stores (only Walmart ever stocked them) and I was scared I'd never get one at a decent price

Also of note, I noticed tonight that Target FINALLY marked down that Death Trooper/Cassian/Jyn 3 pack to $35.99... this is the first discount I've seen on it in a year when I snagged it for $54.99.

I'm not sure how long this discount will last, but considering my Target has 15 of those packs, they might need to lower the price even more.
