Went to WDW this past week. The Build A Droid locations have moved in Hollywood Studios and  Disney Springs. Both had same collection of pieces, and frustratingly missing one or two components for different droids. Like body and legs for R3-S6 (Goldie), but no dome; so anyone have an extra?
Also had bodies and domes in a few white/blue combos, but no legs to match. I even flipped up the filler tops to look into the bins and asked cast members. Still a fun part of the trip.

Brickseek shows the huge variation in price locally. Only stores with any AT-STs left are at stores that still haven't discounted from $60. I picked up two @ $15 last week, and my Wife got me one more on Monday.

Just traded my 07 Subaru Forester in for a 2017 Forester. AWD is a plus in upstate N.Y., Subaru have a good rep for quality, and my 9&11 yr old boys look like they're going to be roughly my size (6'2"); so rear seat legroom will be a premium in the next 5 years.
First new car I've ever owned and first time I've owned a CVT.  So far I've been besting the Consumer Reports and sticker mileage estimates, which is a pleasant surprise.
Also traded my Wife's 07 Sienna that had 125k for an 07 CRV with 30k. It was a late Great Aunt's car. It's been over maintained based on mileage, though I'm thinking we should get timing belt done just because of the age, not mileage.

Found about 10 of these on the shelf at Walmart in Glenville, NY (nearly Albany). I picked up my one. Nice looking unique figure.

Found two Royal Guards (probably same two I tried to buy two weeks ago), aisle scranner said "see associate", but they rang up fine at the register

Just found this wave on the pegs, so I grabbed 2 Royal Guards and a Finn. At the register the Finn scanned but not the Royal Guards, I played dumb and the employee called a manager over. The manager said "either these have been recalled OR, they arent supposed to be out yet, I better go make sure they havent put stuff out". So at least this manager was competent or not a liar (as it seems like the standard manager response is to lie...).

I found a Phasma three weeks or so ago, went back to that WM and no sign of Leia or Han. This store just moved a bunch of Finn out of the clearance isle and removed (most of) the clearance stickers (you could still see the red on some of them).

Hey, just got the soundtrack for the Force Awakens. Why isnt the song that the band is playing, at Maz's on there? Its all the orchestral tracks, just not that one.

That's the impression I had of Finn; that he had limited experience outside blasters. "I need a weapon!", "You have one." Maz pushing his hand with the lightsaber..

Got my third screening this afternoon with my Wife and both of my boys; first for our seven year old. Felt bad for the folks behind us. 7 year old had a little trouble with"quiet mouth", sitting still, etc; he has autism and tends to script things. Anywho. Can i just say that a less engrossing, entertaining movie might have allowed them to be irritated; but they actually refused my apology and $20 to buy their next movie tickets (it was a local 2nd run theater so that wouldve covered it for them, plus snacks). Star Wars is great.

Saw a Troop Transport on clearance at Marshalls. Marled down to $49.99, "originally" $99.99. Clearly someone swapped tags to return something else. Still funny.

I was able to complete at Hollywood Studios. When i got home i realized i picked a weird head for the "Goldie" black and gold droid. But oh well.

Was at Downtown Disney today, i found the black and orange head, but no body/legs to match. Also had a white and lemon yellow R6 (i think) that i could find parts to match; the rest of the yellow was more orange-yellow. Headed to Hollywood studios tomorrow, so im hoping they have the complete black droid.

Now i am, very slightly, regretting buying the 5 POA version of the new stormie. No going to return it though. Glad that this line isnt quite dead.

Love the mail away pack idea. Bland packaging since they are going to be opened and there is no need to "sell" it.

One of the missiles doesnt snap in solidly. Not really a big deal. I like the new TIE, one of the few musts for me. I could see how the rubbery wings might turn folks off though.
