Rogue One / Re: Taking Back Our Hobby
« on: October 24, 2017, 09:33 PM »
This is like the Star Wars Sithposting meme group on Facebook come to life, except it isn't a joke.

On that note, Hasbro needs to cut this loser loose. It is unacceptable for Hasbro to interact with a site that continues to promote such exclusive, outdated and harmful rhetoric. They're toys, man. TOYS.

They support JTA, yet cut ties with Jayson and Yakface. Makes total sense.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 4
« on: October 23, 2017, 04:53 PM »
If you need this wave, check out the Go! Toys and Games stores inside malls. I happened inside one today and they had tons of Galen, Raddus, and the Rebel Soldier. I saw zero Fenn Raus, however. They were priced at $10.99 a pop, which is too much for me, but for those of you who need them, it could be worth your while.

I wonder if I can go get my purchase from over the weekend adjusted?

Found a bunch of these today at my local Target. Better late than never, I guess. I had actually forgotten completely about this figure since Target hasn't exactly made stocking toys a priority over the last 18 months.

So I got a call yesterday from Gamestop saying they had my preorder in, and I picked it up today. They were all being kept in cabinets behind the register, with none out on the shelves with the other collectibles (this store had no figures at all, come to think of it).

The voicemail I got from the store gave me a laugh though. It was basically "Hey we finally got your preorder in, thanks for your patience" with emphasis on finally and patience. Makes me think they've been hounded by the local scalpers.

These are hitting local WMs pretty hard, with the Praetorian Guard and Leia being first to go. Maz seems to sit. Poe, Finn, the Imperials, and Kylo are all sitting. I saw at least 4 at the 2 WMs I went to over the weekend.

I did grab a Poe, however, and would like to grab more if these hit discounts to swap heads with the other TBS Poe figures.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rey with Speeder
« on: October 16, 2017, 12:08 PM »
I have the Luke Landspeeder and plan on getting the Rey Speeder soon. I love the landspeeder, it's a great mini vehicle, and the $45 I paid was well worth it.

Problem here is that Walmart is the only place stocking these, and even then, it's only about 1 of every 3 Walmarts that have them (any WM that put out the big mid-aisle display has them, WMs that did not do not have them). I have yet to see these at a Target or TRU. Oddly enough, I have only seen the Centerpiece sets at Target.

LEGO / Re: 2017 New UCS Millennium Falcon
« on: October 13, 2017, 03:26 PM »
Forgot to post this email I received about 2 weeks ago:

Hello LEGO® Star Wars™ Fan,
As you may know, the new LEGO® Star Wars™ Millennium Falcon (75192), our largest LEGO set ever, went on sale exclusively to VIP Members on September 14. We are very excited that we received such a positive response from fans like yourself, it exceeded all of our expectations! Unfortunately, that also means the first batch has already sold out.

The good news is we are making more as quickly as possible and expect to have very limited quantities available for the remainder of 2017. We have extended the VIP-only access period, which means the new inventory will remain exclusive to VIPs at least through November.

To make your wait a little easier, you can now sign up to receive back-in-stock notifications. Simply confirm your interest below and we’ll email you when a new batch of the Millennium Falcon (75192) is available on

If you'd rather make your purchase at your favorite LEGO Brand Retail store, please call or visit your local store starting Friday 9/29 and ask a Brick Specialist to add you to the wait list.

I'm just happy to have a widespread, SA 3.75 inch line again. The fact that it will only be a handful of figures each year somehow makes it even better, as I have about 5 years worth of carded stuff just in rubber bins because I have no space for it (in addition to the money aspect).

Honestly the worst repack in that wave is the Kylo. Rey is an awesome figure with a ton of accessories, and I'd LOVE to pick up some First Order Stormtroopers with good paintjobs (all of mine are flawed in some way). Plus the Rogue One stuff hardly hit here. I'd like some Scarif troopers, as it's the only one I didn't find, but I've wanted some extra Jyns and Cassians for customizing purposes.

These are hitting here in force (spirit)! First Walgreens I hit yesterday had 5 on an endcap with a bunch of other POP exclusives. Grabbed one for myself and another for a local collector buddy.

My Snoke arrived today. They charged my card and sent a shipping notice yesterday. I forgot Gamestop is based in Dallas/Ft Worth, so UPS dropped the package off today. A pleasant surprise!

WARNING TO CARDED COLLECTORS: The box arrived slightly crushed despite a VERY good packing job by Gamestop (the figure and throne itself are in perfect shape). Another collector on Reddit had his arrive in a similar fashion, caved in sides/edges despite lots of padding in the box. So it appears these are arriving to Gamestop already damaged?

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS)
« on: October 10, 2017, 10:20 AM »
That might be a good movie.  :P

Last scene is a fake out, the lighting doesn't even match.

After Rogue One, can we expect any of this to be in the final movie?

The scene where Kylo shoots at the bridge Leia is on has to be a fakeout too, right?

Walmarts appear to be the only stores stocking the Black Series speeders around here, and only a handful at that (Target is the only store carrying the Centerpiece line here), so I bit and got the Luke Landspeeder over the weekend for $45. Brickseek shows that Rey's Speeder can be found for $30 in some stores, so I'm waiting a few more weeks for either further clearance or my credit card statement to reset, whichever happens first.

All that is available in the Beta is a Walker Assault style multiplayer level on Naboo, droids vs clones. Kind of weird hearing the droids with Clone Wars/ROTS voices in Theed. There are different "Classes" of soldiers to choose from, the standard soldier with the blasters from the films, heavy assault troopers, officers, and snipers, and the more points you get allow you to unlock bonus "cards" like special bombers and such.

Got the Qui-Gon exclusive the other day, and also got the new Phasma/FO Stormie/BB-9E set a few weeks ago. Just have to wait for the rest of these!
