SH Figuarts is making this same version of Chewie. Does my collection really need FIVE 6 inch Chewie figures? (this, the previous 2 Hasbro, and the 2 SH Figuarts versions)

Yes, yes it does

Yeah, I don't know where the overproduce part came from. My local WMs and Targets are just now starting to fully restock shelves after being virtually empty since Christmas, and I've heard from a LEGO Store manager that he was really frustrated with LEGO's own internal distribution (our local store along with others in Texas were unable to get certain sets like the UCS Falcon in mass quantities while Amazon can)

Then again, my area is awful for toys in general, so I could be in some void and everyone else is stuck with piles of sets.

Biggest thing to me has been the rising prices and the sheer amount of sets. TLJ for example, in the September wave, had THREE sets priced over $100 MSRP, one at $80, one at $50, and the cheapest set was $30. That's not quite affordable for the average kid/family, nor does it appeal to the average parent/grandparent looking to buy a small set as a reward. Then just three months later, another wave of TLJ sets were released, and most of those were poor sets, even if they were more affordable.

According to Hasbro CS, cards will be charged on or around April 25

If you need any of these old figures, get them now, as aftermarket prices for even the POTF2 stuff is surging

Welp, I got cold feet and never ultimately backed it. I couldn't justify the cost, nor the size, and will be missing out. Oh well. I'm extremely happy for those of you who are getting one after all of these years.

I'm very interested to see what happens when Hasbro starts charging people. The conspiracy theorist in me thinks it's fishy that there was such a surge of backers within the last 4-5 days

I got the Target version. Haven't gotten to watch any of the bonuses yet, but the intro scene was a lot more impressive in 3D

A few "out of the way"/suburb WMs stocked these overnight, so I went and picked one up this afternoon. Glad to finally have this out of the way

Nope, the Easter sets are a Creator Hot Dog Stand (which is really cool) and a Friends bowling alley

Okay, you win, I'm going to back it. I'm getting a $600 tax return, so yeah. The catch is I'll wait until the weekend when I've had many, many beers and can't second guess the decision.

Executioner Stormtrooper is being clearanced out at my local Target for $9.98. Check the clearance endcaps if they aren't with the other Star Wars toys

Apparently the POTF card is exclusive to the Sail Barge and the figure will be mass released on a Vintage ROTJ card

Just reading Star Wars (main series) and the occasional spinoff line. I have a sub for Amazing Spider-Man, but apparently that's ending again after Issue 800 ::)

Yeah I've heard LEGO does the same thing. No deals will be had, they just send the inventory back.

I stopped by my TRU today for what will probably be the last time. Mostly the same inventory they've had for the last 3 years or so. I might return when the deals start to see if I could get some more Rey/Crait and Ackbar/Officer sets for cheap.
