Just my take, but rereleases peak for figures you'd rebuy. So if you have Ahsoka, Weequay, or Starkiller, would you make a point of getting another? Tank Driver was my (losing) vote. Could go for the Tank Cmdr again too...

Great review Matt. I noticed the droid seems to pop out of his socket pretty easy too. Its a nicely done ship, hope these kind of things keep coming, and that they are available online (only get to go to Disney every few years).

Fyi, this is available on the ShopDisney store as of this afternoon (Friday 4/2). I think there is a code for free shipping as well.

Edit: "FREESHIP" is the sitewide free shipping code at ShopDisney (ends tonight).

We need a mortar stormtrooper, right?

Hey JM, I'm interested in what the psychologist was referring to. Was it SSI, which is means limited (ie, the family can earn too much)? Sounds like you are a few years ahead of us, so open to advice, even if it doesn't apply the same.

Its been a busy 12 years for my family. Oldest is fully mainstreamed, and really doing very well (probably falling under the radar too much) #2 is doing well, in a dedicated private school we are super lucky to live nearby. #2 has reasonable verbal skills, and is a smart kid, its about getting any of that out of his head. Struggling with learning self direction and daily living, but doing our best. But he puts up with Dad's nonsense, and correctly responds "Star Wars" whenever I ask him what I'm watching on tv.

Big props to all the folks who work in Special Ed, don't know how you don't burn out.

I found it in the big seasonal section of toys that had towards the front, along with a few other Star Wars toys (some Funkos, big Galactic Heores BB8 playset) was on the bottom shelf...

Happy Hunting

Our local (12205) ad DIDN'T show the tank, not sure why. But they had 5 or 6 on the shelf at $19.99. Bought one. Never saw any of the Cmdr. Figure.

Picked up Chopper at Target. Now to check I dont already have him...

Went to WDW this past week. The Build A Droid locations have moved in Hollywood Studios and  Disney Springs. Both had same collection of pieces, and frustratingly missing one or two components for different droids. Like body and legs for R3-S6 (Goldie), but no dome; so anyone have an extra?
Also had bodies and domes in a few white/blue combos, but no legs to match. I even flipped up the filler tops to look into the bins and asked cast members. Still a fun part of the trip.

Brickseek shows the huge variation in price locally. Only stores with any AT-STs left are at stores that still haven't discounted from $60. I picked up two @ $15 last week, and my Wife got me one more on Monday.

Just traded my 07 Subaru Forester in for a 2017 Forester. AWD is a plus in upstate N.Y., Subaru have a good rep for quality, and my 9&11 yr old boys look like they're going to be roughly my size (6'2"); so rear seat legroom will be a premium in the next 5 years.
First new car I've ever owned and first time I've owned a CVT.  So far I've been besting the Consumer Reports and sticker mileage estimates, which is a pleasant surprise.
Also traded my Wife's 07 Sienna that had 125k for an 07 CRV with 30k. It was a late Great Aunt's car. It's been over maintained based on mileage, though I'm thinking we should get timing belt done just because of the age, not mileage.

Found about 10 of these on the shelf at Walmart in Glenville, NY (nearly Albany). I picked up my one. Nice looking unique figure.

Found two Royal Guards (probably same two I tried to buy two weeks ago), aisle scranner said "see associate", but they rang up fine at the register

Just found this wave on the pegs, so I grabbed 2 Royal Guards and a Finn. At the register the Finn scanned but not the Royal Guards, I played dumb and the employee called a manager over. The manager said "either these have been recalled OR, they arent supposed to be out yet, I better go make sure they havent put stuff out". So at least this manager was competent or not a liar (as it seems like the standard manager response is to lie...).

I found a Phasma three weeks or so ago, went back to that WM and no sign of Leia or Han. This store just moved a bunch of Finn out of the clearance isle and removed (most of) the clearance stickers (you could still see the red on some of them).
