Spotted Archive Wave 2 at Target tonight. Ended up passing on all of them. I have the original Yoda and Scout Trooper/Speeder Bike, and also SH Figuarts Maul and Anakin. It was really hard passing on the Maul, but I'm trying to cut back on toy purchases

That's pretty cool. Not sure I'd buy a visual guide of just TVC figures though. Now something that chronicled ALL Star Wars figures, though probably impossible, I'd definitely buy.

This FINALLY showed up in stores here locally; most Targets here haven't even bothered with the Father's Day displays and have just been throwing everything in the toy aisle

A Dengar I preordered from Entertainment Earth shipped this morning. I likely won't ever see any new figures in stores until Force Friday, so good to finally finish off the Bounty Hunters. Now I can work on searching for online bargains for the Padme/Mace wave!

May the 4th LEGO Store haul:
- TIE Fighter for $56
- Hoth Bacta Tank for $23
- 20th Anniversary Battle of Hoth freebie

And I grabbed the TLJ First Order AT-ST set tonight at Target for $11 (marked down from $40)

Not Chewie!!!

First Leia. Now Chewie! Who's next Darth Vader?

Don't forget Kenny Baker (R2) died a few months before Carrie Fisher.

This sucks, but it's impressive a man of his size made it to his 70s

You talking about the girl squad?  Or something else?

Yep, the women. Just imagining the rage some people felt while watching that makes me chuckle

Saw it twice over the weekend, and I think it was even better the second time. I normally despise audiences cheering and clapping at movies, but it really worked out well during the climax. So many great callbacks to the other movies, and a great way to close out Phase 3.

There's one scene I can't stop laughing at because it was clearly made to piss off Twitter.

I got the Darth Vader Transformation set at Walmart on clearance for $11. First LEGO set I've bought in a while.

Probably the coolest of the multipacks that were revealed. Droids are always fine to have multiple versions of, but this does make me feel dumb for spending so much time tracking down that Walgreens 3PO. I need that Rex!

I'll likely never own this, but this is such an awesome idea for an exclusive. Something that you don't "need" but is still wicked cool

Up for pre-order on as well.

Was there going to be a special three pack of Aphra and her droids as an exclusive, or am I getting this confused with the 3.75" line?  For some reason I've got written down that there was going to be a three pack for 6" as well.

Probably confusing these 6 inch figures with that 4 inch set from last year. That TVC set was exclusive to SDCC and the only current way to get Aphra's droids in the 4 inch scale

Surely Hondo will be available later on. I don't want to drop $60+ on a set just for him..

Read an interesting post on Reddit about that shot of the group looking at the partially submerged Death Star wreckage, mainly the scale of it all. Granted we don't know how far away the wreck is from the cliff in the trailer, but one guy was theorizing it should have been much, much bigger.

The shopping centers where TRUs were in my area are all pretty much dead. The one near my place had a Five Below that recently closed down, and a bunch of mattress stores that shuttered too. All that's left is Dave and Busters and a Bed Bath and Beyond. The other TRU shopping center across town isn't doing much better, as the Target in that center was closed down, as was the Best Buy, Office Max, and Pier One.

The TRU carts and signage are still all over the place, and I'd be lying if I said I hadn't considered taking one, but like... where would I put it?
