How many of you wanted to buy a Lego Death Star after watching?

My son has one, but we both felt queasy after watching it get smashed.

Good price!  I will pick up one for my boys.

Did you get one at that price?  It's back up to $140 now.   ::)

Finally got around to seeing this over the weekend and it did not disappoint. Hands down the best Spiderman ever and a great addition to the overall Marvel cinematic universe.  Holland's quirky Spiderman was full of energy and optimism - a refreshing change from darker and sadder incarnations.  I like how they skipped over the origin for a change (didn't need to be redone yet again), and giving him a buddy to share the secret with was another refreshing change.  I initially thought Vulture would be a lame villain, but he was great too - especially with the ties back to the Avengers and alien tech.  I love how they're using that explain and include a plethora of C-level baddies.  Shocker was obvious, but some great nods to other potential characters like Scorpion and Prowler, and even a possible tie to a Miles Morales Spidey down the road.  The level of Stark inclusion was just right - I was worried he would be too involved, but I thought it worked out really well.  Some nice plot turns that I did not see coming and that ending was awesome.  They even brought back Pepper for a cameo!  Even the very last extra scene after the credits was a gas.  Looking forward to seeing this one again and more Spidey goodness in future movies. 

My only complaint is still Zendaya's Mary Jane.  Not a fan of her acting in general, but casting her as a nerdy recluse instead of a popular hottie is a total mystery to me.  She didn't serve any real purpose throughout the movie - maybe they left something more meaningful on the cutting room floor.  I think it would have been better to just leave her out of the movie.  Similar thoughts about the redesign of Flash Thompson, though he had more reason to be there as an ongoing antagonist/rival.  Still, pretty rare to find an overconfident mathlete ladies man who DJs at parties.   ::)  Forgivable choices overall.

One question for those that have seen it - (spoiler) - Did we actually "see" Stark and Pepper get engaged off scene?  I couldn't tell if that was a meaningful off camera plot point or just a simple ruse for the reporters that we won't hear about again.

Wait, what?  This is 3.75" scale, right?  This thing looks awesome, but unless its RC or comes with a $40 rebate, I'm not buying one for $80.  I think I paid around $80 for the U-Wing and the Tie Striker combined.

There's no way to really end it well without killing everyone.   >:D

I read somewhere that the Vader and troopers are being repacked because they go with those 40th AC dioramas... a good idea in theory, but I can see them piling up at Targets

I will eat my hat the day 6" basic stormtroopers pile up anywhere.  That is the most obvious and basic troop builder imaginable.  I bet you could sneak a stormtrooper into every wave of 6" from now until the end of the line and you'd still never see them pile up.  I can definitely see Vader sitting though, since we just got an expensive version of him and no one really needs a display with lots of Vader flanked by Vaders.

Has this been confirmed that this is purely a packaging variation and there is no new accessories or anything with this set?

I don't think it's confirmed given we haven't seen the individual releases yet.  The release from Jeff's post above shows accessories that I think would likely come with the single figure release as well.  Unless they're planning to not include Rey's staff or Luke's cape, it seems pretty likely that there's nothing "exclusive" beyond the packaging. 

That said, if this is the only version that has removable sideburns for Rey, I will get it. 

These look great, but I liked Rey a lot more before she grew sideburns.   ???

I'll probably wait for general release if this is just an exclusive package.

That IS weird...I remember wanting to get into that line a few years ago and eventually gave up because the stuff is just impossible to find on the secondary market.

If you're actually interested in these, my neighbor has a fair amount of them still on the card for sale.  That and Bravestar stuff.  I think he'd sell it for a really fair price just to get rid of it.  I was going to try to help him unload them, but he's anti-Ebay and we never really found another good outlet. 

I'm kind of curious about this even though I'm sure it will be terrible.  Have a soft spot for Rom growing up with those comics and Jetfire is always awesome...

Having bad luck with C3PO. He was damaged in the case I ordered and so was the only one I've found at retail.  :'(

The figure was damaged or the box?  I haven't seen any damaged figures in this line as of yet, so would be curious to know what you found.  Does he have something fragile to watch out for?

I was equal parts amused, shocked, and disappointed in that scene.  I guess overall it's cool to have seen lightning take out a zombie.

Check out the upcoming Marvel Legends wave for Thor - Raganarok, complete with a Gladiator Hulk B-A-F.

Not digging short hair Thor that much, but the rest of this movie looks great.  I will grab a few of those figures - don't really need gladiator Hulk though.  I hope we get some good backstory on how he ended up there, and would be cool if they tie this into the Civil War timing to explain why these guys weren't involved. 

Only $28 if you buy two, $25 if you buy 4!

I saw WW on sunday...I liked it better when it was called Captain America the First Avenger

I can't tell if I just know Marvel characters a lot better, but I can't even begin to describe the stuff WW can do once you get past her strength and agility. It also felt a LOT like the Captain America movie, just using a hot chick in place of the captain.  I really liked that movie though, so no harm done.

Right on. Although WW and the Amazons are little easier on the eyes than Cap and the Howling Commandos.  I wonder if the sequel will have Antiope come back as a brainwashed Russian spy with a metal arm?  I'd watch it.
