Great episode!  Loved the little twists and I have a pretty good idea how the big fight at the end is going to go now.

Lot's of cool old western and some very heave Dune vibes going on.  Love it!

Great all around and I'm ready to discuss more after everyone's seen it.

A much, MUCH better episode than last week. The "modern" portion was intriguing and left me wanting more, although the mayor's majordomo is still pretty cringeworthy and doesn't "fit" into Star Wars. Boba building his gaffi stick was the coolest part of the flashback to me. Don't want to post too many spoilers so I'll post some more thoughts later.

Easy pass for me since my area wound up being flooded with these so I have two already. I'd have totally bit if it were the new Boba sculpt.

Episode 2.

Loved the current timeline parts, loved the flashback parts. But I guess I am pretty easy to please on these Disney+ shows.  :)

Loved the deep cut easter eggs and character cameos.  Loved the homage to the old west train robbery movies.

I do have to admit I am now a little freaked out about the possibility of my son's anole breaking out of the terrarrium and "guiding me". That's gonna traumatize some kids the way the earbugs from ST2:WofKHAN! freaked out so many kids my age. ;)

Did either the 2013 or the 2019 Yoda's have ball-jointed elbows or were the both swivel elbows?

2013 Black Series 3.75" #22 Yoda was basically a 5POA figure with no elbows or knees IIRC. 

For the Yoda from the 2019 Cave of Evil 3-pack at Target, Hasbro took the VC20 Yoda sculpt (ball joint knees, swivel elbows) and gave it a new ESB head and then the accessories from the 2013 TBS 3.75" figure.

The way the arms are sticking out on the carded figure and the look of the head sculpt makes me think it's probably the 2019 Cave of Evil version but I guess I can't say for sure.

Hmmn...some good thoughts there.  This is how my Villains shelf ended up, but I need to expand or change it.

Man that Death Watch Mando looks GREAT. I can't wait to get those guys in hand. Fennec looks great on the card, with the removable helmet, 2 blasters, and the bootle spatchka - I'm somewhat surprised Hasbro didn't market her as a deluxe figure, that bottle of spatchka is worth at least an extra $10. :P

I do love the look of Yoda and might be down for another. Did either the 2013 or the 2019 Yoda's have ball-jointed elbows or were the both swivel elbows? Aside from the belt not staying clasped, that is my biggest gripe with the one I have. Sometimes the swivel joint pops out when I am moving the arms and it is a real pain to try and pop it back in place without fully taking the robe off.

All three look great!  I want to say that Yoda is a repackaged version of the Black Series one, but I'm not 100% sure looking at the head.

I don't see why they wouldn't use that one though....it's a fantastic figure!

If Hasbro is not planning a TVC exclusive set with a Boba Fett and that TBOBF throne then they are stupid.  Make it a Pulse thing like the Palps/Throne set and it's easy money.

Pretty much summed up my thoughts on this.  Frankly, I'm surprised it didn't come with the deluxe figure.

I'm definitely expecting the throne to happen... if it doesn't, there are a lot of customizers selling 3D printed, painted ones for $80 or $100... wouldn't want to pay that, but I probably would if push came to shove.  OR, I'd just buy the Hallmark ornament.
