And will it have yet another take on R5-D4?

So today I got emails and tracking numbers for Han, Leia, Yoda, and Lando. Fun thing is they are each coming from a different state and as such have different delivery dates with Lando not arriving supposedly until June 19. The foursome were on for a while earlier today. If I had to guess Walmart got solid cases of each figure and have either not gotten Luke and Fett yet or ran out before processing all the preorders.

Death Star Duel Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker

Wave 2 has hit Target in Chicago’s Northwest suburbs. Saw two cases yesterday at a store and friends have been finding it all over the region. Bought the Hoth Trooper looks fantastic.

Prices exploded in 2015 during the lead up to Force Awakens and have for the higher end items stayed that way since. Best advice I could give is to lower condition expectations and you can still get deals.

Testors should work. And if it doesn’t, based on the darkness of the green you could probably just paint right over the blue without much issue.

Spotted some of these figures at 5 Below yesterday.  They had Vader and Bespin Han Solo.  I think they were $5, but they might be less since that chain has been selling 3.75" figures for $3.99

They’re $5 at the stores around me. Picked up a couple of Stormtroopers along the way.

Saw a BB8 playset at Ross today for $29.99. I think that’s the lowest marked price I have seen it since Target last year before Black Friday.

You’re not looking in the downtown Chicago Ross are you?  That’s the one I keep referring to.  When I was there today there was one BB8 left.

This was at one of the Schaumburg stores. My days of traveling downtown are for the most part  behind me.

Got mine the other day, too.  And I'm kind of wondering why they didn't name this character on the packaging?  Because some of the info about the character from official sources identifies him as Paz Viszla.

That’s the character’s name per the credits of chapter 3. The name may not have been decided upon until the figure completed its production run though.

I think the line was “we made a lot of  noise a few weeks back and that’s going to get attention” when referring to the fight with the Klatooinians. So yeah they stayed there for a while afterwards

Is it me or was the walker an automaton? No sign of a driver. Very cool looking in the dark.

And I wonder if the Mando’s lines this week are just a continuation of the idea that while he is a renowned hunter and he tries to keep a calm exterior , he often is bumbling his way through things. For which I find charming.

And lastly please tell me baby Yoda is right around the corner in toy form. 6" and or 3.75"

Baby Yoda should be the hottest toy of the holidays if LFL would get their act together. After 4 episodes by the time of Black Friday, secrecy will no longer be needed.

What is needed, is Baby Yoda Tots everywhere!! 😁😁

I’m glad I am not the only one having this issue. I reported it thru their support system and I am sure it will eventually get fixed. But that seems to be a standard function that should be working on Day 1, doesn’t it?

I see people mentioning that you are unable to resume a video from where you left off. What about a series? I am running Disney+ on my Roku and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with my kids and when I turned off the app for the day, the next day I come back and it doesn’t remember which episode we left off at like Netflix does. Anyone experiencing this?

This is worrisome, I have a solid case due in soon. I fear what I will find.

So far the few I do have seem to be ok. Noticeable difference between the hard plastic of the torso and the softer plastic of the limbs. But nothing too drastic, yet...
