Itís new so Iíd say give it time.  Most of their stuff has been available for a long time even when it is eventually discontinued.  Certain figs seem to have gained value fast but if you were to compare Iíd say the Starspeeder playset is a more fair comparison long term.  Just my opinion.  The figs seem to have no rhyme or reason as to why one is worth a lot and others arenít.  Besides the convention exclusives I canít think of any of the droids as ďlimitedĒ.  At the same time I recall some of the 4-packs sitting forever on shelves it seemed then once they sold out suddenly people seemed to suddenly want them and their secondary prices went up.

Similarly wave 1 park pieces are commanding premiums over time in notocing.  The SC is so new itís tough to call but Iíd say itíll be worth basically itís park price for a while then itíll eventually not be carried and people who didnít buy will panic and drive prices up then.

I love it but I have loved all of them.  If the drink tray is the same one that was on their 4-pack droid the cups will be removable.  Like the Halloween Droid this year the deco really seems to fit the backdrop of the Droid well to me.  Itís kind of fancy looking and that works for CB same as the orange white yellow deco and cleanliness for the Halloween one fits wirh the color aesthetic of Bespin to me.  I like that Disney seems to give some thought to all of that.

Iím always a fan of Disneyís droid factory stuff tho. I really do wonder what theyíd do if they had a full 3.75Ē toy line on their own.  I donít think they want to get into it but Iím still curious.

Oh donít worry others have picked up the ball as if they created it. 😆

But lost a significant number of their sponsors, evidently.

All I can do...  is take it one day at a time.

I felt the main character Kaz had a slightly overly obvious dialogue to him, so that made me look at it as slightly less ďadultĒ than Rebels but overall I agree and think itís similarly slanted.  I think people were expecting like Sesame Street in Star Wars or something drastically obviously for young kids.

Yeah from what Iíd seen the times are synced now between shows iirc...  one storm here had so many roads washed out it was a nightmare getting home from school some years ago so the storm thing is fine.  It could have been related or not.  I was fine with it either way adding a level of complexity.

She didnít do herself favors with her lifestyle either iirc. 😬

I wonder if the magic storm was the same storm or related to the ftwd storm.  If Darryl is gonna be the focal dude post Rick, Reedus needs to speak up some and a tad more often than he currently does.

Itís the same fig as the other one had, and theyíre all female because Hasbro didnít want to sculpt a new pilot...  at least thatís what Iím assuming since all protos showed the same pilot figures...  that one looks a tad different tho.  A diff color jumpsuit (and hey, change the race of the pilot too?) wouldíve been cool but either way Iím glad to get the variant ship which is at Black Spire too. 🤷‍♂️

I watched it last night and I see the slightly skewed to younger viewers thing but I thought it was alright.  Not great but it was fun and Iím happy to watch it next week.  The animation IMHO was a treat and apparently they have a better budget to do more variety.  Lots of aliens both old and new, lots of little details.  The ships were fantastic looking I thought.

My complaints are minor...  the kid voicing the main character Kaz delivers his lines in an overly excited and sorta out of breath way, and he does it all the time.  I kinda hope they dial that back because it just sounds odd.  The dialogue wasnít bad and was a mix of more complex at times wirh sort of simpler stuff.  I feel like LfL is trying to make both audiences sorta happy.

In general I enjoyed it.  Iím sure there will be people bitching and those people I wish would quit following the saga at all at this point.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: NYCC 2018

I couldnít recall the Trooper origin either.  How many troopers wirh jetpacks does the Empire have at this point haha?  I feel like there is a lot on my 4Ē shelf, but he looks cool.

Contrary to popular opinion on forums Aphra won the fan vote so I figured a 6Ē wasnít far off.  I was surprised her and the droids all at once as basic figures but droids are popular and Aphra seems to be too, for some folks anyway.

I love the 4Ē figure, personally.

It is far superior to the rebels ATDP so itís making headway, but the gun portion is definitely so-so...  the cannons in the film I thought had longer barrels but I could be wrong.  The gun platform piece really just needed to be a hair bigger and a hinged armored window wouldíve been nice.  Its legs are pretty fantastic actually though.  Articulated well and sturdy.

Tank commander means I will have 3 tankers too many.🤔 Nothing left to do buy buy another tank for 2 of them and their eventual commander, and then another tanker, tank commander, and tank, for that remainder tanker.  You see, I have no choice.

Iíd love to see the line improve some.  But yeah Walmart can suck the life out of any toy line it seems.  Target isnít terribly better given I just now saw the Moloch figure and still havenít seen a Gammie.  The imperial Trooper pack is barely visible here too.  Our stores are just meh in general.  Thank god for online stores right now.
