There is one positive to having the Lando in Skiff Guard disguise out there - gives them a good base body to also release Beckett wearing pretty much the same outfit from Solo.

EE is now taking pre-orders for this playset for $39.99.

Not sure what that means for it showing up at Walmart retail stores, but at least it's another option if you're desperate for this set.

Here's hoping that this means there's still a chance that EE will get the Vintage Collection Mimban Stormtrooper.

For some reason the Resistance toys are tagged with a hard lockout street date of 1/15, from speaking with a friend who is a Target employee, it is the same kind of sale lock-out that they use for CDs and DVD/BluRays - those are always locked out until the Tuesday of the release.

For these toys though? Beyond stupid.

I found them out at my local store, knew about the block ahead of time. Tried to buy them, but was denied. Didn't make a stink or nothing, will have no problem finding these come this Tuesday...

Using Jayson's SKU and Brickseek, I finally saw inventory progress this morning when I woke up so I hit a WalMart on the way into work and was pleasantly surprised to see an entire case on the pegs.

Found WAVE 2 this morning in addition to finding a complete case of Resistance Wave 1 figures - they were sitting on the shelf in this little display case that I'm sure was packed with the wave. Since I bought all of the Wave 2 tubes leaving just 2x of Vader and 2x Chewie, when I went to the self-checkout, I asked the attendant if I could have it and since it was Walmart, she didn't care, so now I have a nice little display for my MIP Galaxy of Adventure figures.  ;D

Went into my local Target today hoping to find the Batman/Metalbeard Lego Movie 2 set, but instead was greeted by a handful of the new 2019 sets instead:

Sith Infiltrator Microfighter
Naboo Starfighter Microfighter
Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighter 2-pack
Juniors A-Wing
Droid Gunship
Inferno Squad Battlepack
Death Star Escape

Not a bad haul - basically if they had the two other Juniors sets, Praetorian Guards Battle Pack and the new version of the AT-AP, I would have been able to make a clean sweep...

All four are currently available on shop@home, so I might just put an order in on them and throw in that Batman set I was looking for in the first place.  :-\

Got my Reys in the mail yesterday.  Really nice figure!  I wish she came with the staff and an unlit saber hilt so I could have her offer it to Luke.

I got mine as well. I agree that she's a nice figure. I picked up a clearance Rey/Guard 2-pack from the TLJ line for the Guard so I grabbed the staff off of that figure since I have that figure displayed with the ridiculous shoulder canon accessory the 2-pack came with.

Maybe its just me, but Lego sets seem to be way too expensive these days.  Either that or they're less interesting or I've just got way too many already. 

I've got tons of Star Wars Lego sets (I'm a fan), but even for $90 this seems kind of expensive for a black tower, Darth Vader's TIE, and some mini-figures.

I've seen a bunch of other ones marked down throughout the year at 30% off, and often still don't feel like there is enough value.

Agreed. I get every set so I went ahead and picked it up at the $90 price tag which is A LOT better than the $130 price tag. I had one on backorder from Lego Shop@Home and I had it cancelled since they couldn't price match Amazon.

The Lego version of Darth Vader's Castle from Rogue One is one of Amazon's Deal of the Day for Today (December 10, 2018) down from $129.99 to $89.99

Got my two Sandcrawlers today. I am super excited to finally have this after first hearing about it at SWCO.

Yep - I ordered the additional two I was looking to pick up as well. Couldn't pass them up at that price.

I am honestly quite skeptical of there being any serious plans to tell more Rick Grimes stories by way of made-for-TV movies that air on AMC.

With how Rick exited the show, the producers hope they have prevented an all out mass exodus of what viewers they have left. Killing off Rick would resulted in many viewers of the attitude "this show was about Rick Grimes, Rick Grimes is dead, the show is over for me".

For at least the next year, they will keep trotting out Gimple who will be asked about the planned "Rick Grimes: Walker Hunter" movies and he will continue to say "we're working on them", but that will be solely to just keep stringing people along.

When the plug is pulled on the show, they'll have Rick Grimes miraculously come back for the last couple of episodes, weave in the best ideas of what they had for the Rick Grimes movies into the episode where he returns so he can explain "where he's been" and end the show outright.

Yak Face is also 2 per case.

Jayson - do we know the breakdown of this 2019 Wave 1 case? Are we finally at the point where it's a wave of 4 figures and each figure is packed 2 per case or is YakFace the "lucky" figure and Leia, Scarif Stormtrooper and Skiff Klaatu all packed 1 per case?

I'm hoping that the online retailers will be offering individual figure pre-orders so I can score a bunch of the Scarif Troopers.

I either missed the reports that Hasbro was doing that for the online retailers or no one really reported it, but I was VERY pleased to have my Range Troopers arrive from EE in a case that indicated it was a solid case of Vintage Range Troopers. So hopefully Hasbro will be doing the same with the Scarif Troopers.

Is the carded Mimban Han Solo the exact same thing as the one in the multi-pack?

Looks like it to me Rob.

I have both, but only the 6-pack one open, I have the one carded version that I've found so far still MOC. I gave up hitting my local Walmarts in hopes of finding this wave and just went in on a case from EE, so I should have one of the carded release opened to compare soon (my wave 4 case just shipped)
