I'm with Jeff on getting a scarf sculpted "down" or something.  Jyn from Eadu would've been better, as I know she didn't last long on shelves compared to this one.  Whatever though.

One of the better figures in the last at least 5 years.  Def one of the best figures of a droid ever.  Wondering when they'll doninevitable repaint.  I'd buy a handful of him in the imperial deco.

I thot the same thing here but our stores have a ton of this wave but all in backstock.

No problem Matt!  Happy to help.  I got a DST that way I still haven't fixed.  I need to get on that. :(

Not really sure what you mean there but basically here is a popped apart foot of a figure, just so you see what you're dealing with (stolen via google).

The "pin" that the foot pivots on and which plugs into the shin/lower leg is rigid plastic and won't soften with the hot water.  The foot itself is molded around the pin.  That's actually where cost is with ball socket joints with Hasbro figures.  The molding process is more $ because of that but it can't fall apart.

It's not hard to pop figures apart though just make sure you leave it under the tap a while.  You'll just have to pop the feed off and then heat the shin up again (not even as much) and pop the foot's pin back in and voila. :)

I don't champion anyone closing like some places enjoy doing but I will say TRU isn't a place I hit often.  They're not conveniently located for me, and I haven't had a good find there since the resculpted speederbike and the exclusive rebel sled n tech were on sale there. :-\

Less places to buy the worse it is for all though. 

That said bankruptcy isn't the end of the line by any means.

Hey like politics!   ::)

Seriously though, that's some lameness.  As ****** a cash grab as their maps were.  It'll make some MP unbearable I'm sure.  If I get this it's for the campaign and story.  Piss on the MP from them.  Still doesn't impress me.

Run his feet under hot tap water a good while n it'll soften his shins enough to remove the feet and swap them.  Usually I boil figures but since ur not into the customizing thing Matt just hold it under the hottest tap water so you soften the leg plastic enough.  The feet pegs are a hard plastic and won't soften.  The foot itself will tho cuz it's like the shin plastic.

R2 flies up the stairs Rey climbed and Luke looks at him like wtf and says "you could do this the whole time but just didn't?  You *******".  R2 giggle beeps in reply.  End scene.

What I lol'd at on the Jyn comment was some asshat saying "well that was posted without context!"

And yes it was taken out of the context it was posted...  but the context didn't improve it.

He said it because he was pissed off that Disney had another female lead and was railing about that, and then just decided to toss out a little intolerance of Muslims because the friggin character had a scarf on.  You cannot be a bigger example of "triggered" over something so petty and stupid.

Right, left, center...  it was just stupid to say.

His rebuttal?  "I won't apologize over my comment because it's against a religion that oppresses women and blah blah blah".  Nice spin attempt.  ::)

It's drama.  It's ignorance.  But there is a good bit more going on too.

There is the efforts by them personally shine a spotlight on leaking news in the lead up to Force FridayII, for social media leaks but also to throw under the bus peers in the collecting site world.  that was some pretty petty stuff in and of itself.  But then with every story they'd post how they'd rumored it or whatever first...  so openly admitting you leaked things too but wanting a crackdown on others?  Just petty middle school stuff.  It was embarrassing that Hasbro was even contacted over it directly, bu they were.

I'm almost there except for customizing fodder and vehicles and I can't say I'm unhappy at all.  Frees up some funds for other toys.  Not having to have a lot of the 5poa or waiting for sales to get them to customize is nice.  Still buying beasts and vehicles tho.

Yeah I'd guess that joke is for when these become buildable in the parks and the hats go there or other potential plug ins.  I'm fine either way.  Droid factory is still one of my favorite things in modern Star Wars collecting.  Don't have any protocol droids yet but I hope to get them all.

Bummer.  :-\

I didn't realize the protocol droid parts weren't compatible with the astromechs too.  Weren't all Hasbro's BAD parts compatible regardless of how stupid it looked?  Go figure that Disney didn't do it.

Or sneaking in an affiliate link.  :-X

Hadn't considered that, but yes.  I can't imagine they didn't make the pegs compatible?  Hasbro would've done that though, so I guess I shouldn't count my chickens there.   :-X

Again, if it's as nice as the Starspeeder, I'm into it.  I just had this out the other night, and it's friggin great.
