Hah I like that tower.  Can't quite place what it is but it works.

Held the Rathtar in my hands the other night, couldn't get them because the Kmart computers are now telling them not to sell.  Looked like they'd maybe put out the AWing and other junk...  possible someone bought stuff before I got there but not sure.  Just know that I was told nope. 


So close to fun, but denied.  Funny thing was how the girl put it behind the counter slowly line I was gonna grab it and run or something.  She started treating it like a bomb or something.  Just odd.

Glad Kmart appears to be getting stuff right away though because the last 2 years they were a ghost town for weeks after the toys were out elsewhere.  I'll use coupons and points to get stuff like the beasts and AWing if I can.

Yeah people on the coast saw piles of the wave, often with the Scarrif and Death Troopers picked out or only a couple DTs.  I remember the pics coming in and I kept hoping against hope we'd get them in bulk too. 

DT wave we got in some quantity but I had to be super proactive on it, or I'd have missed them.  I got quite a few tho.  But the Scarrif I got one on Amazon because it was $18 shipped and I figured that balanced out ok to me.

First figure, ever, I paid more than retail for in modern Star Wars collecting.  A sad day.

Mine had one Cassian 3.75" for $2 and change so I got him.  They had 4 Cassian 6" figures but I resisted. 

TFA figures are still almost $4 as were all TFA packaged figures.  Go figure.

My walmart on the other hand has dumped everything to the lawn and garden and prices are ok.  4 packs are $13, basics are pretty cheap.  We shall see how it goes.

5 Below has 2 packs for $5 but nothing locally yet, but I've heard some friends in WV got them so that's cool.

I am predicting unhappiness by most but I think that's a good point on the Jakks droid.  I figured it's a "companion" thing like a stuffed animal.  Hasbro probably looks at that ability to transform as more bang for the buck, and it's tough to blame them with a big investment involved.

All of the more recent waves have popped in and out on  It's weird.

Did, regarding auto stuff, that's generally a regional thing.  It's why one will have a huge hunting sportsman area another is barely anything.  The auto stuff depends on the area too, generally.  Toys I'm told is a much more generalized thing and thus it's more hit and miss.  Walmart is odd.

It seems like the Scarrif wave never, or barely, made it past the Mississippi because the East got shafted while I know guys in the west who had entire endcaps filled with the wave and wound up with piles of Cassian.  I got Cassian on but the Trooper I never get a sniff of.  I've never seen a Cassian on pegs, or even repacks to make me think he maybe showed up.

At the same time we got the repacks last year while a lot of folks didn't see the royal guard barely at all. 

Kinda looks like a garden weasel.

I'll have to look around tomorrow maybe.  Those 4packs went fast at $13.

I was only buying for the pilot but wow they were here then gone.  I would like a couple more 5poa Cassian figures maybe if prices are right.

I got a Kanan for $5 once.  He hangs out looking out of place but I mean they are fun toys soooo whatevs.

I really wish that 6" Cassian was that good in 3.75" since he did the most "action" in that outfit. :-\

I don't spend a lot on 5poa and wait for sales and such.  I think I bought K2S0 full price and he was one that didn't hang around long.  TFA was a learning experience but even then I think many were $5 or less for me.  And if I didn't see it at a store I don't own it.  Still don't own Tassu Leach, Ackbar and other figures.  5 Below bailed me on the squad leader and helmetless Ren.

I figure worse comes to worse and I'll either have to hollow a head out or fill it in some and do a swap.  The one helmet looks strikingly like the EU extra bucket the TVC royal hmguard came with.

You can talk to them direct on their chat window and they'll add stuff.  I do it all the time when an Acid Rain preorder comes up after I already made one for something else.

Also if you get their catalogue in the mail there are free shipping codes on them ALWAYS, if you order a certain amount.  I forget the amount off hand but I mean I never have trouble making an order that big.  It's either $99 or $79 but if you've got a group or something you were considering anyway it's worth it to me usually to throw in an extra figure or two.

I'll buy now personally but I wouldn't mind buying again of course.  The two army builders are nice that they're new and not rehashes.  I'll not want quite as many as I usually do but I'm still down for a couple of each.  Rey and Luke I'm just excited to have right away.  Wish there was a Poe in the kick ass jacket ala Han's favorite clothing store.

I meant more that I think it's molds are kaput.  I sold mine eons ago but oddly enough have a box in decent shape for it.  Go figure.  I should sell that too I suppose.  I liked it, but I don't know if a part cardbord part plastic skeleton type set is what Hasbro wants now or whatever...  it seems like utilizing different "play patterns" is always part of the equation anymore, kinda how the Republic Shuttke was like a ship and a base.

GI Joe had the best playsets...  huge, fairly complex...  half of them are still good custom playset fodder even.

Yeah it's a completely new mold (very different from the original AWing, and much larger than the Rebels effort couple years back).  The pilot also looks like a superior effort to pilot figures from TFA.  Ship appears to have projectile feature designed into the lasers and possibly something underneath but no loose shots underneath that I've seen.  The box art implies something firing from the bottom though, yet the toy doesn't really show anything I can see.  Could just be something to do with the movie and nothing the toy has. 

Definitely a new model AWing though which is cool and even the pilot has a McQuarrie-esque look to her.

For some reason $350 is sticking in my mind but I forget when or even if I'm just remembering wrong but yeah I would say it's gotta cost at least what the last release did.

They could always release the TFA one redone slightly I suppose.
