It would reason that you couldn't skip to the front of the line if you weren't where the line is. 

I'll be there on Sunday, so I went ahead and signed up.  I wonder if they'll have some decent 3.75" exclusives...

I just got an email offering me a VIP pass to the Hasbro Pulse line for Star Wars Celebration... don't know if it'll come in handy, but that's a nice perk out of nowhere.

I just wish zombies were a real problem again...

Although ten years in, the number of people who can be turned into zombies is always getting less and the number of zombies that survivors have killed is always going up.  You'd think at some point the zombie part of the apocalypse would end.  And yeah I know that even when you die no matter how you zombi-fy and can start another outbreak... but I'd like to see a world where the mechanics of how all this happened in the first place were explored and discovered...

Naturally, I got my six at $13 or above...


Six??  There were only two in the movie!

Honestly I didn't pay close enough attention to them to know that.  I generally just buy six of most troops, other than regular stormtroopers where there's no such thing as too many... maybe I should sell four of them though...

Just an FYI, this figure has been marked down at my local Wally.  All VC figures were rolled back to $9.95.

Don't let Rob know.

YOU ARE ALL WELCOME!

I like them, and I like that I have all of these... but my god Super 7 is going too crazy with the variants.  I can't blame them for wanting to sell the same figure several times, but some of these guys exist in 4 or 5 different variants already.

That's an awesome deal... I bought them right away since I open everything.  It's not very often they let stuff go for more than full price.

I got my MOTU blind-buy cases the other day.  I managed to sell the 8 duplicates for $90 after eBay fees, so I'm about $160 into these 16 new figures / variants:

Lando is available for pre-order, when I finished ordering mine and copied the link it said there were 3 left:

I cracked mine open to get the yak face out for this buyer... the Yak Face had a curved, super thin crease along the top right of the card, and the card had some curve to it as well - I sent him pictures and am waiting to find out if he still wants it.   :-\

My Jabba was fine - no cleft palate, no two-right-hands... all normal.  Barge looks good too, I have to crack open all the pieces and get them on it tonight.

I had a bend in the upper left corner of my Yak. The guy I sold it to on eBay got buyers remorse and caused headaches. So I gave him the refund he wanted and told him to **** off. Now I am stuck trying to sell the Yak again.  >:(

Good luck with your buyer, hopefully he won’t cause you any headaches.

I sent Hasbro an email asking about replacements for the Jabba and Yak. I will let everyone know if they comment on it.

Yeah, we'll see - he paid a ton of money so I wouldn't blame him if he wasn't happy.  If he doesn't think it's good enough, I'm going to offer him a partial refund and if he still doesn't want him I'll just have to relist it for less.  It's probably going to cost me a few hundred dollars.  But it was house money anyway, so I suppose I can't complain.

I mean, I knew the box was going to be huge, but good grief...

Thanks Dale... I had random people at work who had read it walk up to me yesterday knowing that I'm into Star Wars stuff... looking forward to reading it in a bit.

I'd be much more excited if I had ANY IDEA where I was going to put it.

You are more than welcome to keep it at my place.

It might get to that point...  It's 14" wide, and I've got 12" deep shelves... I'm kind of hoping it'll fit on those and just hang over a little bit - but I'm not entirely sure I can create 4' of shelf space without taking half of the room apart and losing my mind.

Wife just called... it's delivered.  The woman from FedEx rang the doorbell before bringing it up to the house, and then when she finally brought it up said to my wife that some kid is going to be very happy.
