They were a bear to track down. Before the Bumblebee movie dropped, some shippers were sent to Wally stores nationwide that had 72 mini bots in them. I managed to get a set, but these got wiped out FAST. My local store still has three Tailgates and thatís it. I can do some digging to see if an online store has these, but theyíll be expensive.

Speaking of reissues, Optimus Prime is showing up now, sans trailer. Wally is asking $50 for it, which I think is steep for what youíre getting, but I have several Prime reissues so YMMV. Soundwave, Warpath, and Gears are on deck next.

The Art of The Last Jedi has been hovering around $15 on Amazon lately, so I pulled the trigger on it. Love these books.  :)

Found a mountain of stuff at my local Ross. $9 TIE Silencer, $7 Ski Speeder, $5 Bladebuilder lightsabers, $10 Kylo lightsaber, $3 6Ē General Leia, $10 Centerpiece sets, and some Star Wars Nerf I really didnít look at. Might be worth a trip, even to buy something to donate.

Grabbed this whole wave except Quay and the Mudtrooper Han tonight. Great batch of figures, but kind of wondering why they werenít out day one.

Sounds like thereís a script, and itís going to be a Snake Eyes stand-alone movie. Sounds promising, and it drops in March 2020.

Picked this up fo $5 the other day. Put together with the Snoke throne, itís a really neat set. Would love to have something like this for the 4Ē line...

Found a single case at my local Wally this morning. Picked up Han and the Tank Driver and left the rest. This store has had a single First Order Stormtrooper sitting on a Vintage peg for months, so maybe thatís why they got this wave now.

Just scored one of these off of Craigslist for $100. Has all the pieces except the floor panel that goes next to the training remote and one of the landing skids. I couldnít believe my luck today.  :)

Is the Cassian Andor repack in this wave? I forgot. If so, Iíll buy this whole wave.  :)

Great wave. Looking forward to Lando, and while I donít need any more Stormtroopers, Iíll try to get a couple.

Neat idea. Not sure that Iím sold on this, but the Kessel one is neat. Hope to see more, particularly OT stuff.

Some great looking figures there. Glad theyíre releasing them, but wonder if theyíll end up EE exclusives.

Neat! Never got Bossk, so this is great.

I don't have the new Leader Prime from Power of the Primes yet, but there is a new theme dropping soon called War for Cybertron that's going to feature a Voyager-class Prime that looks pretty nice.

It's a bit cheaper than the Leader Prime, so there's that.

And for something that's really up my alley, G1 reissues are supposedly returning to the US exclusively at Wal-Mart. I'd throw up the links, but the Wally website has currently taken them down. The bots available will be Hot Rod, Starscream, Devastator (!), and four minibots: Outback, Swerve, Tailgate, and Bumblebee. Robot Kingdom has them in stock now, and Big Bad Toy Store has Hot Rod in stock:
I would expect them to be much cheaper when (if) they actually hit stores. My guess is they'll be up for sale on Wally's website after Hasbro announces them at SDCC this weekend, but we'll see.

Great set! I was hoping for a Qi'Ra in this costume, Weazel is a great choice, and I'll always take another trooper. Han is scene-specific, but if I end up buying a playset, I'm going to want this costume too.

I may have missed it, but is Beckett coming anytime soon?
