OMG, how much stuff is dropping right now???  I just got the Cantina Band last week.  And over the weekend I got shipping notifications from Hasbro Pulse for the Endor Bunker, and notifications from Amazon about the Speeder Bike(s) and the Skiff Guard reissues.

All of that plus the AT-ST and the ROTJ Retro wave for me.

This is what usually happens with Gentle Giant.  One or two mini-busts all year
and then like 6 will all ship within a month of Christmas.

Thanks Nick.

Or at least a beskar spear.

Iím glad they didnít.  We donít need microscopic changes to figures to encourage idiots like me to buy them twice. Besides, no one would buy the Rescue Set if you could get the spear with a single carded Mando.

Do we know if the new $16.99 Mando in Beskar armor that Pulse is taking preorders for is identical to the one from this wave?   The photos look the same to me, but I'm never really sure unless one of you heard Hasbro say it.

Last day of the warehouse sale... if you were on the fence, it's now or never.

Same, that's the Speeder Bikes, ROTJ Retro Wave, Repack Wave, Endor Bunker, and the AT-ST all this week.

Was it just me or was the whole Dr. Pershing side story incredibly long and boring, and at this point it seems totally irrelevant too?  I'm hopeful all that time spent on that side plot ends up mattering later.


I'm all for world building and in theory I like deep dives into things that aren't just Mandalorians flying around talking about whether someone took their helmet off, but the ending left me if that was really the origin story for whatever the ex Gideon officer woman's name is? 

The show is having an identity crisis... Grogu has become decorative.  The first two episodes with looking to repair IG-11 and seeing Babu Frik's little gang, and the pirates... it all felt like wasted time.  Then the Bo Katan stuff seems actually interesting... they weaved in a bit of mystery with all those TIE Interceptors being too many for a warlord...

And then we spent 45 minutes following around a reformed Dr. Pershing relapsing. 

The mention of Moff Gideon made me think that they were sewing the seeds of doubt about the New Republic and foreshadowing the re-emergence of an Imperial remnant - whether it was Moff Gideon or some other Imperial warlord.  Between that exchange and all of the Imperial fighters attacking Kalevala, it was plain to see that something bigger is coming.

The show runners said a few years ago that Mandalorian would explore the origins of the First Order.  I have to think that's the direction all this is headed over the next few years.

Hi there,

We are excited to now offer the Indiana Jones Retro Collection Indiana Jones figure at the lower price of $11.99 on Hasbro Pulse, in line with similar figures from other Hasbro product lines. Due to the nature of the Hasbro Pulse pre-order system, the only way to honor the new price was to cancel existing pre-orders - your original form of payment will not be charged. At this time, we invite fans to re-order at the new, lower price here.

We appreciate the continued support and enthusiasm for the Hasbro Indiana Jones brand and cannot wait to share details on our new and upcoming products this year.

Thank you for being a fan!

Hasbro Pulse

Yeah I got my wires crossed... I knew there was an ARC in this wave and Jayson had a post about Walmart preorders for Jesse being all screwy today, so I went to Walmart's website and found a sold out one that's $30... thinking it was something new I asked about it here, but it looks like it's actually a 6" Jesse and I'm an idiot.  The TVC listings that are $30 are just third party sellers making a buck on the old one.

Is this ARC Trooper Jesse that I think is in this wave a single carded release from the 3-pack from a few years ago or is it new?  I canít keep these clones straight anymore.

Probably, good hiding spot for it too.

I just figured the idea was that it pulled him under because no one's ever down there and it was threatened, and then calmed down when it saw Bo Katan.

Could be.  But to me it has to actually be shown on the show or said by the creators otherwise weíre just backfilling from the peanut gallery.

SIDE NOTE - How is it that so many people think that Din got pulled under?  Call me crazy, but I think if you step into water wearing armor, you're probably going to sink.

I mean, Iíd have to go back and look for a second but I donít remember him stepping off and sinking, I thought he stood there for a second and then got sucked under.  Also, she seemed to be swimming horizontally under the water, not straight down to where heíd have sunk if he just sunk.

Thereís a whole exchange in the new episode about the waters being deeper than before because of seismic activity though, so maybe youíre right?

Just got a shipping notice for Han and updated delivery dates for the Emperor, Luke, and Lando (all for Monday).  No updates on Leia or the Biker Scout yet.

Same.  I just canceled the Pulse preorder since I at least get points with Amazon.
