The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: TRU 6" Commander Gree

A number of TRU exclusives have never hit here. Mainly Marvel stuff (still waiting for that Spidey/Mary Jane set), but my store never got the Astromech set or the Black Series 3.75 inch Jabba set from a few years back.

Sooooo skip the basic release and wait for this one? I can do that!

Got a notification that Gree was in stock online just now, and as soon as I clicked the link, out of stock.

My orders of the AOTC Anakin and Padme exclusives finally arrived from BBTS. Great figures, and a shame they're exclusive in Japan, and thus more expensive and harder to obtain.

I also have a shipment of 3PO and R2 on the way (released last weekend in Japan) which should be here by next week.

Okay, okay, for us poor folk who do not get free stuff from Disney, that's a lot of cash. :P

From the latest LEGO Store calendar for September 2017:

September 1-3: Force Friday II Earn double VIP points on all LEGO Star Wars items. FREE exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) with purchase of $50 or more.

I read somewhere that they ended up destroying 7 or 8 of those Death Stars during filming. That's a lot of cash at $500 each!

Discovered a site called Toy Dojo last night that was selling a lot of SDCC exclusives and specializes in Japanese figures and Transformers merch. Turns out they recently opened a brick and mortar store here in town, so I stopped by after work to check things out and ended up buying a SDCC Thrawn. Paid $90 for it, but I'll probably try to trade it for some other rare stuff.

This will no doubt be the set that is the toughest to get. Seems everyone is gunning for it.

It also reminds me how surprising it is that Hasbro never released repack multipacks like Stormie Han/Stormie Luke/Chewie/Obi-Wan in the 6 inch scale. I think the only repack they've ever done was that TRU Han/Greedo set. I probably would have bought that as opposed to those craptastic EE and Amazon exclusive Trooper sets.

Good to see it's $24.99 after it reportedly rang up as $39.99 Canadian.

That being said, I'll wait until the inevitable overflowing of the pegs along with the BOGO discounts TRU has run lately

Hmm, I kind of want this set, but I don't have any Guavians or Kanjiklub guys, mainly since they never showed up here, so Bala Tik would be kind of useless to me, moreso that it's 5POA. Guess I'll wait and see. Rathtar looks great though.

And now I don't have to buy that terrible Lego Rathtar set

That's one of those "buy it purely for the minifigs" sets we've been getting more and more of lately :-X

I know the Snowtrooper and AT-AT Driver are being repacked for the Hoth Luke diorama, but yeesh... get ready for some $4 sales on Amazon

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
