I received the Ferrix Trooper and Tibidon Obi-Wan today from Target. Still waiting on the Shoretrooper…

Yeah I got shipping notices for Obi Wan, Shoretrooper and Ferrix Officer too. Just praying they don’t arrive before I get back from the holidays…

Received the 13th Battalion Trooper and Fixer from GameStop today. I’m mostly meh on clones but it’s nice to still see the old window boxes…

Man, I would still love to get the Twilight one day but for sure I would back the Ghost. Lots of great Tier options there.

Cad showed up the next day! Also finally got the Halloween Clone I preordered from Target awhile back. And my Credit Collection Tusken Raider is out for delivery from GameStop…lots of stuff hitting right now.

I watched them all the other night and enjoyed them. I really, really want that 3.75” animated Inquisitor though.

It was interesting to see Dooku upset about Qui Gon being killed. I assume he knows Sidious is Palpatine. (Worst disguise since Clark Kent!) I wish Yaddle had talked like Yoda though.

I thought the training scenes with Rex, Anakin and Ahsoka were pretty asinine. He wasn’t even giving her any advice or instruction. Anyone who trains in anything knows you can’t just go over and over like that. You need time to mentally reset and focus. That should have occurred over a period of weeks, not hours. He never really was a very good teacher though.

I need closure on what happened to Kino! Poor guy, he had to know what was coming.

I was surprised they just jumped out, I thought for sure they would be stealing ships or something. It sure made for a dramatic exit though.

I thought Luthen’s speech to Lonni (?) was some of the best writing in the entire franchise. What a great scene that was…

Yeah, the free shipping takes a little of the sting out of that price. I picked up one as well.

Pleased to report the Amazon exclusive Cad Bane (Bracca) finally came back into stock earlier today and I was finally able to snag one at the original $27.99 price. This was the only Black Series figure I didn’t have on preorder, my victory is now complete!   :D

“Never more than twelve” (crowd goes wild!)

The prison sort of reminds me of the cloning facility on Kamino.

Mon really needs to take five minutes to sit down with her daughter and say seriously, wtf is your problem? I am convinced at this point that either she or Perrin is going to betray her.

It is difficult to see a path forward for Syril at this point. The Empire is 100% not bringing him in to help find Cassian obviously, and Deedra has warned him twice now to stay away from her and out of her business. The only logical thing I can see them doing with him is having him go full Fatal Obsession on her and either kill her or somehow otherwise ruin her plans. I can’t see him as anything other than a wild card monkey wrench.

I picked up the Holiday Mando in store from an online order today, shockingly easy!

Picked up the Diamond Select Uatu today at its original retail price at a local comic shop. Super happy about that one! Amazon unceremoniously canceled my preorder and it has never come back in at the original price since. A definite upgrade over the What If? BAF version. He is already chilling on my big Galactus display…

Got shipping notices for the GameStop Holiday Wookie and Pulse gingerbread Clone or whatever.

Today I found the Halloween Clone Trooper on the pegs at Target. Also put in an order for the upcoming ROTJ carded Ackbar from Pulse.
