Yeah, kinda.  I donít think thereís anything to it though, they just arenít giving as many teases is all.  Theyíre kinda lazy on everything these days.

I enjoy that trolling thought. 

Rubbing out more bad batch is welcome.  The show is pretty good...  didnít even start off terribly slow.  Loving the early TKs.  Itís solid stuff.

Sorry man, as weíve all experienced here itís hard but you have given the pet the best life they couldíve had, and you try to take some solace knowing they were loved and cared for.  It never makes it hurt any less it seems, but itís a good thing to try to remember too.  I feel bad any time any of you guys post a loss of a pet because I know how much it hurts me when it happens.

Iím not against 5-7poa as much as I once was, mostly because Iíve found articulating them is kinda satisfying, but the price has to be kinda right for me to be into it.  It would help flesh things out a bit.

I wound up with like 9 arc troopers by end of day ordered because I wasnít sure who needed what.  Also 3 captains.  The captain seemed to be hardest to get but I just happened to have stepped out at work to get a drink and was in my car when a buddy texted me they were in stock again (was gonna count it as a loss and move on) and so got him too.  Only one I skipped was battledroid.

Walmart sucks, but I did get what I wanted...  it was more good timing than diligence though.

Also, looks like the Arc Troopers have removable helmets.

The ARC Troopers are re-issue/repaint of VC54 figure, minus the 2nd Helmet/Pauldron.  Kind of a cheap move to drop those extra parts.


Theyíre doing a lot of this ****** little stuff lately.  The scout pistol from the gaming greats figures...  kinda shocked the RFT in the Tantive set had all his stuff to be honest.

I'm now calling on Disney to make a Fat Homie astromech!   ;D

I too would buy a ďfat homieĒ astromech.  Disney needs to make this happen.

Some of their stuff is super limited, so itís not a first by any means.  Look at the dathomir (which my phone keeps wanting to change to ďfat homieĒ) astromech.  That one also sold out fast and goes for stupid $.  As I recall people were sorta overlooking that one too which seems to help fuel the prices rising then.

Yeah what Matt said.  I think a rebellion on Ryloth may become a bigger arc and Ryloth becoming an early alliance alligned group is old Legends stuff so thatís kinda neat to see it fleshing out. 

As always I wish I just had figures.

Seems like Chamís Clone buddy is gonna maybe turn?  Itíll be interesting to see how Clones react to fighting against friends who arenít really encompassed in their Order66 programming.  Maybe that doesnít impact them as much since itís not a Jedi.  Would be possibly why Bail was let go?🤔

Look how fast stuff sells out too though.  Production numbers are low low low.  Itís tough to blame hasbro because contrary to the rose-colored glasses crowd, everything would see sales and clearances, including the beloved TVC. 

And itís not Disneyís fault.  Itís not Rey or Rose...  complacency among collectors maybe?  Prices hitting their limits to what a broader audience would support perhaps?  Look at stuff like the Tantive IV hallways.  Perfect display items for shelves and ignored.  Itís not just TVC either.  Look at the centerpieces.  Those are awesome and ultimately weíre ignored.  I donít even like 6Ē and I liked those as 3.75Ē compatible.

Thereís always excuses and finger pointing that it canít be the collector realmís fault, and for the diehards it isnít.  I think itís just now that we are seeing Hasbro adjust how the line is dialed up or down based on the size of the audience they feel is there and willing to spend money.

Not gonna lie, Iím miffed the scouts didnít come with blasters.  That was insanely cheap of them to omit the accessory he has a holster for.  Otherwise I love it!  If I had endless piles of scout pistols Iíd care less than I do, but this really kinda blew.

If thereís nothing in the Star Wars section, is it a Star Wars section anymore?  🤔

Wise sold it out to a reseller!?  ******* shocking stuff. 😐

Like Nick said, Yakface has been really the only news source now for a while, besides Bosskís Bounty getting some scoops.  Outside that, itís dead everywhere else and thatís fine I guess.  Sometimes a qna yields something, but rarely.

As communities go, this is the only one I enjoy.  Disgust groups are just full of toxicity...  and the other forums are no better, and increasingly fewer.  Iím content with the friends I made here.  Not a lot of new guys I feel Iíd relate to, and not even a lot of older collectors I relate to anymore now that many of them are batshit insane.

And shipped. 

I wanna check out your video when I get some downtime Matt.  That rifle is enticing me to order one maybe.  Itís not a design I love, but that rifle looks new perhaps and Iím kinda interested now.
