Thanks, yeah it hit in full force here...

I kinda wanna see the rest of the line at some point.  Iím digging the bird and may pick up more.  Not sure on the larger ones yet but even the smaller sets the beast is solid.  Very heavy!

Toy boners are rare these days...  I guess both Hasbro and I are getting older?  But they do still happen sometimes.  That Tanker?  Oh yeah.

Got the bird...  itís def a cool piece for custom mounts for any Trooper really.  The price is pretty good too, however the rest of the pieces in the set are all pretty meh for me.  Iíve never been a fan of Corps figures in general though so I knew what I was going into here.  I just wanted the mount.

Let me be clear that the animal is awesome if not a sort of simplistic oversized accessory.  It looks like perhaps articulation was considered at some point and scrapped for a solid piece more or less.  The jaw moves and thatís it but thatís all you really need.  I got the bird btw.  I feel like a giant cat might kill its rider, and a velociraptor thing may do the same but a bird?  Why not.  I may change my mind on the others tho.

I do hope this line expands because it has some cool potential.

This line is pretty epic for custom Star Wars mountís for sure...  the figure is going in my goodwill bin though where I toss PTE figs and other stuff like that.  It just doesnít jive to me with Star Wars sculpts.😕  Iím eyeing the Mammoth set right now debating what I can do with it.  Thinking some fake fur glued on could make it an interesting relative of a bantha on another planet. 🤔

There was some retconning of the variety of Sabacc games in the EU. 

I treat it like Poker - same basic game but a LOT of variations to the way you can play it - draw, stud, straight-up, texas hold em, etc etc.

Exactly...  I think that was the plan there.  I think the cards in solo were the same maybe as what WEG put out too even.  Kinda neat. Iím easily amused. 🤷‍♂️

There was some retconning of the variety of Sabacc games in the EU.  To the best of my knowledge the first rendition tho came from a West End Games sourcebook that included a deco of cards and stuff.  I think I might own the book since I have a lot of them but Iím not sure anymore.  Hell To get old.

Says theyíre around but maybe not out yet as Iíve not seen em.  Soon tho.  Soon.

Nice, thanks man.  Iíll check out my area.  The bird is most interesting to me right now.

Yeah I think itíll be a similar dealio...  I felt the old deco was fine too though.  That was a figure that seemed to fly under the radar for how good it was.  All those sandstorm figures were nice.

If you have time to post upcs feel free.  Iíd like to pick some of those up for sure.

My Rebels need mounts for their planetary patrols. 🤔

Iím banking on repack yeah...  it makes sense for sure and once again knocks off a collect all 92 figure if they just do regular old RotJ Skiff Lando.  Be cool if it came with all the extra gear too just because but I doubt it.

A new or retooled figure would be a waste of time imho but they redid the Death Star gunner and I felt that was kind of a waste too, personally.  But with Lando it really feels like an updated sculpt is unnecessary.

Iím all ears.  I just am happy when stuff I like is available.

I got a Mimban Stormtrooper and itís depressing me I canít have 100 more...  itís a really awesome sculpt.  They really improved the Stormtrooper.

My case is on the way as of yesterday I believe.  That was sooner than expected.  If the wave had singlesnid load up on some Scarrif grunts and doubles of the aliens for customs.

Hmmm that may be a good bala tik update to try.

I was amazed Hasbro seemed to intentionally make his coat removable but I honestly didnít see anyone anywhere mention it.  I donít really read reviews much though, but the only one who I think wouldíve caught it is Jayson.  Itís subtle but it sure seems intentional to me since the arms donít leave a gap when the coat is off.  Itís like it was never there. 

And it does look oddly cool on some imperials...  I havenít tried it on all black suited imps yet but the 30AC Death Star Trooper was pretty flawless looking with it.  I slapped an extra officers hat on him and he was out the door as a colder weather Trooper Officer hangin out and being kinda useless.

My point remains though, Hux is the overlooked gem of the TLJ line.  If I were casting still Iíd whip up some heads for those now useless black FO Officer bodies I have lying around.  Heís my new ASP-7 maybe. 🤔
