Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The "Original" Star Wars Fans Thread
« Last post by Matt_Fury on Today at 10:57 PM »
The entire KMT social media story is completely overblown.  The same "people" who harassed her online is the same twitter account that the entire TFA black stormtrooper controversy 3 years ago.  It's one twitter account with like 12 followers and some online site picks up a non-story that goes viral and no one does any read fact checking.

Kelly Marie Tran didn't have much of a social media presence until just before TLJ marketing kicked off.  She used social media to promote the film then stopped again when the promotion for the film ended.  She was not run off by bigoted fans.

Of course there's a vocal minority that are emboldened by the anonymity of the internet....but it's easy enough to ignore those idiots until people looking for clickbait get ahold of them.

I thought these would be much harder to find, glad I'm wrong. Seeing them almost every time I hit a Target. But then again, Target knows how to handle their exclusives.

This Stormtrooper represents the Jedha Stormtrooper from Rogue One, re-using the sculpt Hasbro tooled up for the Mimban Stormtroopers from Solo.  Neither of those troopers had the holster, so no holster on the figure.


Eek! Never noticed that. Although I guess I can't blame Hasbro for being accurate, I still do.  :P

Also, weird that they included a white holster for the 6" Mimban trooper only to have it not be able hold the blaster due to the new blaster sculpt with light on the side.

I'm not sure why Disney OT-Era Stormtroopers no longer have the holster, unless they just kinda forgot that detail or wanted to make the costume cheaper or something.

I enjoyed the first hour long episode, but have found the last two 30 minute episodes very boring.

I think these last two Rick episodes are going to be fun watching Maggie and Daryl usurp power.

Like getting the Tank Commander. I could go either way with just getting one as an overall commander of my Tank group, or get four to command each of my tanks. (I don't have 4 tanks yet, but that's the goal.)

One glaring oversight on my part was failing to ask Hasbro about a holster on the stormtrooper. It's hard to imagine that they'd go though the effort to update this figure and not include a holster, but sadly, this looks like the case.   :'(

Thanks for the tip.  I went ahead and called just now and they said that he'd be happy to place an order, but that they're totally sold out at the moment.

He said more were being ordered and that I should try back in a couple of weeks.
