I like the tease for a possible Kate Bishop with Hawkeye.  Also read online that Marvel is casting for baby twins.  Old time Marvel readers should see the set up here. 

Anyone know when tickets go on sale for Endgame?

Dagobah Luke?  How did that win?  The only people I saw voting for that were the ones that wanted it in a 2 pack with Yoda.  I don't know why I always think these votes actually count for anything.  Hasbro's just going to make what they want to make.   :P

Anyone have a good reason that Jabba's bed moves left and right?  It's on some kind of track like the Jail door...  it moves...  I can't figure out why.  Jabba doesn't need it to move.  It doesn't seem to make sense to me.

According to the instructions it says, "Slide Jabba's dias back and forth to scan for shady denizens." It's clearly a shady denizens detector.  Duh.

I pity the guy, not sure if I have any sympathy for him.  Stealing is stealing.  I don't think it matters if it was a $2 clearance figure or a Rocket Firing Fett.  You took something that wasn't yours on multiple occasions from multiple people.  The fact that he did it to friends makes it all the more disgusting.  I'm not endorsing robbing strangers, but I can see where Sansweet was shaken by it being someone he trusted.  Imagine a good friend is over checking out your collection and decides to pocket a few things.  That's a tough betrayal to swallow, and you're left constantly wondering what else might be missing.  The only person(s) I feel bad for here are his kids.

Cool pictures!  Where did you get that Pizza accessory?  That's awesome.

I'd be curious to know what that guy was doing with all the money.  And how does this all get resolved?  I'm assuming the stolen merchandise gets returned if it can be identified.  Does that mean the buyer is out all that money?  Or does he have to sue to get his money back?

According to the Article, it looks like Cunningham is paying restitution.

I read that he is paying back Sansweet and Tann, but was wondering about anyone else involved with his sales.  I assume he didn't sell everything to Tann - if he had then he wouldn't need to repay Sansweet for anything.  What a mess.

Well put on all of this.  The tribute to Stan was a really nice touch.  We saw the premier, which always seems to have some high audience energy, and people were clapping and cheering for that and Stan's cameo.

Not sure I really get what you're saying in the last paragraph though about outsiders.  Is this based on someone's commentary or review of the film or things you're reading on social media?  My take on characters like Spidey or the X-Men has always been less about their abnormality and more about how you should strive to do the right thing no matter what life throws at you.  Spiderman was on the fame and fortune track and it cost him his uncle.  He could have gone that route numerous times, but lives a fairly humble life dedicated to helping others.  The X-Men are referred to as the next evolution of the species, but they work to protect humanity.  They're often forced to defend the same people would persecute them, but the vision of the strong using their power to protect the weak never waivers. 

These characters are a constant reminder to live the best life you can.  Don't take the easy way out.  Sacrificing for others is its own reward.  Let's be real - they were catering to their audience to a large extent.  The kid reading comics was more likely to be the brainy science kid with glasses than the high school quarterback, so showing the outsiders with abilities and control was self serving for the readers.  But there are also strong messages of acceptance and honor and morals that are needed now more than ever.

Got home to my Barge here tonight and itís neat. 🤷‍♂️

Is that the official JediDefender review?

LOL!  Yeah, can we try to keel the reviews a little shorter?  I don't have seconds of my day to waste.  Oh wait, yes I do.

I was thinking the same thing about the lighting.  I have mine displayed high, close to the lights, but its pretty dark.  The have so much great detail along the back walls, but its not easy to see.  I might position it to have a display light targeting it, bit internal LEDs would be a lot nicer.  They can't add that much cost if they're in things like the Sandcrawler.

For those that haven't done the sails yet, you hook the two ends together first (Front of sail and back of sail).  Then do the two longer ends on each side.  Then last do the two shorter side ends.  That was the only way I could get them to stretch.

Picked mine up yesterday at Walgreen's.  That is a really slick option, though maneuvering a giant box labeled "ACTION FIGURES" out of a surprisingly crowded Walgreen's was not the highlight of my day.  I managed to slice open my finger on the cardboard too, but thanks to the 8 protective layers of packaging, nothing got on my barge. 

My son and I put it all together today.  We're both still just awestruck at the size of this thing.  It has a ton of great features and the sail design is just amazing.  I have some display space on top of glass shelves, but I need to find a way to get it displayed lower.  You can't see or interact with anything if its too high up.  So glad I picked this up.  Now I just need to stock it with some goons.

I saw the premiere last night and thought it was awesome.  I was not very impressed by the trailers and curious if we might finally see a flop, but this movie had me in stitches.  My son didn't get some of the references to things like Radio Shack or computers "loading" files, but those scenes had me in stitches.  Another great mix of action, humor, and plot points that I did not see coming.  Can't believe we're just six weeks away from Endgame!

Kind of a nice Easter Egg for those less versed with Marvel, in the comics the little girl (Monica Rambeau) grows up to be a SuperHero who can transform herself into light.  She went by both Photon and Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers was going by Ms. Marvel at the time).
