The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: TRU 6" Rey with Crait Base
« on: September 8, 2017, 12:17 PM »
Does anyone know if the figure itself is any different between the "With base" releases and the standard versions?  Probably worth getting anyway for the improved accessories, but just curious.

If the new one is very similar but slightly better, I may bring back the basic version I already got and just get this new "with base" version.

30th Anniversary Collection is by far my favorite line within Star Wars.  The creativity and breadth was awesome - Yoda & Kybuck?!?!?

This reminds me of situations at work where someone is a great manager, or great employee, but is terrible at hiring people because they don't understand EQ, or the company culture and how all the pieces fit together. 

I'm not sure who is hiring these directors (Kennedy?), but whoever is doing the hiring may lack the EQ or skills to really understand what it is going to take for a director to succeed.  Its not just about finding "a great director, but finding a good director who can work within the constructs of the Lucasfilm machine.


Just got off the phone with and they were "holding my order due to the high dollar value" ($317 for two Landspeeders and Thrawns).  They didn't send an e-mail or try and reach out to me, so I'm not sure how long they were planning on holding my order.

After verifying my info they promised they would ship it tomorrow.

I guess I've never ordered this much from at one time before, but I'm sure I've broken $200 before without a problem.

I was looking for this coupon too and couldn't find it at my local grocery store.

Is the Kylo Ren that comes with this all new?

Now I'm getting worried.  You guys got yours delivered in one day, and mine hasn't even shipped yet.   I'm gonna have to call HTS tomorrow.   :'(

Anybody buy this and crack it open yet?  Just curious if anyone thinks its remotely worth $180.

I'm trying to decide if Target's $180 markdown price ($200 normal) plus their $25 gift card deal is worth it at $165 total. 

I'm not sure if this thing is going to sit and collect dust and be available for a deeper discount in the future, or if I should consider pulling the trigger now.

Is the C-3PO meaningfully new?  I picked him up this morning but am tempted to return him.

I haven't been able to track down a Royal Guard.  Does anyone know if this is coming out in a future assortment?

I definitely agree the show has changed markedly over the years. The pace was much better when they had the books as a blueprint. Once they got past that point it seemed like they were just in a mad rush to move things along. They could have stretched these last 13 episodes into 3-4 seasons easily. I don't understand the rush, I would think given the awesome ratings that would want to stretch it out as long as they could.

I think most of the rush is probably based on some of the actors (Emilia Clark) not having an interest in continuing this series.

Look at the size of that thing!  (that's what she said).

7500 pieces?  I thought the Death Star was big at 4000+.   Yikes.

I still don't think littlefinger is that major of a character. I guess he is a little larger than the others, but I'm pretty sure everyone saw a showdown coming. I did like that scene but kind of hoped that it wasn't arya that did the deed. Or if she did it was in defense.
