I've yet to see R2. I've only seen Han at Game Stop.

Why would they not multi case pack the figure from wave 1 and the other figure from the orange black series packaging?

Obnoxious move

I'm fine with major motion picture makes it all time canon.

If Disney sells Star Wars to whatever billionaire and they say Force Awakens isn't canon. Then I'm okay with crazed long-term rage

I was annoyed with Disney at first. But after a little bit you get over it. You understand why. And take it for what it is. The old EU stuff still exists either way

Are the votes for Aphra legit? I just picked up a 6" version

It starts with the Imperials finding him after being banished by the Chiss and then works through his ascension through the ranks. I'm 100 pages in. Finding time to read is hard with a kid and getting old

For me, personally, anything short of a production-level item is just odd looking in the collection and doesn't fit the bill for me.  Even customs have to have a look.  I've seen people do amazing work painting a Hasbro figure, but unless they're repainting every Hasbro figure, it just looks off somehow in the wall of stuff that doesn't jive with it. 

I could not disagree more. I get it if your display is just a line of Hasbro toys that a custom painted fig can stick out like a sore thumb, but there's room in the collection for "oddities" and "out of place" things and it jives just fine.

The fact someone can tell my 4" Tzizvvt is a custom doesn't detract from the collection as a whole.

Just heard that the EU figure of choice is Ben Skywalker and claims of ballot stuffing!

I'd believe it.  There's no way there's some sort of fan outcry for a Ben Skywalker action figure.

I'm a big EU guy. I like Ben, but he'd be way down on my list............

You people act like you just can't pick up an NES on ebay and mod it for better video. You can do that or buy a clone or emulate it. I saw no reason for a mini NES with so many other alternatives.  If you have money burning a hole in your wallet, you can buy an Analogue NT mini with full HDMI and play games in 1080p.

Many casual users don't want--if they even know how--to mess with mods, emulators, ROMs, and any of that other ****. That's a big part of the appeal of the NES Classic. It's a really simple, plug-and-play, (theoretically) inexpensive way to play a bunch of games people remember from growing up. And all that without any of the moral/legal issues that come with emulators and ROMs.

And let's also not forget just how goddamn adorable it is. Nostalgia's a helluva drug.

For $449? You could almost buy two NES Classics on eBay for that!

What Matt said.

I've had this obnoxious argument with my brother when I was trying to find one of these.

"You people act like you just can't pick up an NES on ebay and mod it for better video". This makes me laugh. Just that easy yep. How dare we just want to hand $60 to Target and have easy access to NES games if all we had to do was what you stated?  ::)

Did pre-ordering to store save shipping?

I really want the "Life Size" $30 POP Groot they have at Target

86
As I'm sitting here thinking......... Isn't Target not open tomorrow?

That sucks. Don't think my job will let me come in late on Monday............

Lol, I was just thinking ewww, that doesn't look anything like the Rebels character. I don't see the point in this. I thought Disney had put an embargo on all the non-canon EU stuff. Odd choice.

None of the 6" stuff has had a "cartoon" feel to it. Sabine, Kanan, etc.

88
Am I missing something on what to do to actually pre-order it?

89
Hopefully they have direction to have this endcap up for sure

Big difference between this must be up 4/16 and a general planogram date of 4/16
