Star Wars Anthology / Re: Solo (SPOILERS)

There's a lot to like in this trailer (trailers?). Only things I'm iffy about are Han being a grifter, Woody Harrelson with the new Disney cliche of forming a team, and another lame tentacle monster. Otherwise it felt pretty solid.

I was expecting the worst, now I'm hoping for a fun popcorn flick.

How did you see it already?

This blew my head off when I saw the ad, I had no idea they were doing another sequel and I thought it looked amazing. Please God, give us toys!  ;D

The movie was up as soon as the Super Bowl ended, so around 9:30 CST. Still plenty of time to watch before bedtime. :)

Solo / Re: Toy Fair 2018

LEGO has stated that they won't be showing off any licensed products that will be released after May (which is all Jurassic World sets, DC sets and everything Marvel outside of Avengers Infinity War). Meaning we SHOULD see Solo stuff, but it wasn't specified.

I wonder if Hasbro will have a similar gag order? Their latest offerings at these cons have been lackluster at best, and it seems the new hip thing is for these companies to pay media outlets like USA Today, MTV, or the NY Times to officially reveal stuff. I can't imagine we'll see much outside of a few Han/Lando/Chewie 5POA figures. Which will then be reshown at SDCC in July.

In a surprise, Netflix acquired Cloverfield sequel "The Cloverfield Particle" which was previously going to be released in theaters as God Particle.

It kind of sucks. I loved the first Cloverfield and loved 10CL but this was a mess, and definitely felt like a "Made for Netflix" movie. I guess it explains why Cloverfield happens, but then goes on to create more questions from there.

Placed my Old Ben preorder this morning. Should still be up at most of the usual places (AmiAmi, HLJ, etc).

They look great. I haven't bought anything from this line yet, but the urge is strong.

My local stores are saved, probably because they're the TRU/Babies combo stores. They're always PACKED, which I find weird. Surely you can get baby clothes and diapers cheaper somewhere else that doesn't charge the TRU tax.

Rose doesn't even come with the stun gun, of which the 5POA figure has a better paintjob than the 3.75 inch Black Series. I'd been holding off on that buy, and if it came with this set it would be an instant purchase. Now I'll just keep the cash and get the discounted 5POA Rose.

Former JediDefender Poster Famine picked one of these up for me at his local WM for $15 yesterday. These have made a resurgence in my area, but no stores have them below the $60 MSRP.

I passed up 3 Scarifs a couple weeks ago.  I guess I should grab them for the crew?

Heck, you could probably get like $30 per Scarif Trooper if you wanted to scalp them

Seems like this wave is making a comeback. I've been to 3 Walmarts over the last week for various reasons and I've seen maybe 20 Landos, 20 Ackbars, 2 Ahsokas, and 0 ERGs. They have to be new because I never saw this wave locally, and haven't seen it period since I grabbed my set in a small town WM shortly after Force Friday 2016.

Gives me hope that we'll see more of the Rogue One figures and the Proto Fett wave eventually.

Did anyone else see the the leaked LEGO sets for Solo? The Falcon is completely different, which I guess plays into Han's "special modifications" line. And the name for Emilia Clarke's character is Qi'Ra (taken from Kira, the initial name for Rey). And there's probably something involving Han at the Imperial Academy since the TIE Fighter includes Han in an officer suit.

I saw these all at a local WM last night and they're already on Rollback for under MSRP (matching Amazon prices). Some pretty good deals to be had on the mid-price range sets

Grabbed the Ach-To Training set and the Kylo vs Tallie Microfighter at Walmart last night. They already had the Amazon Price Matching Prices on the shelf for the new 2018 sets if anyone wants to save a few bucks
