That's 2 Rose figures they could do right off the bat too!

100% agree on the spiders...lets do this, Hasbro!

Damn, the photo in the corner shows Snoke towering over that guard! I was hoping he would actually be cool to see that!

Thanks guys! I used to get the catalogs but haven't seen one for awhile. I will reach out to them tomorrow. I saw Dorkside had these up too, so I may hedge my bets and put an order in there too.

On Friday I saw just about the weirdest thing I have ever seen in SW collecting. I hit a 5Below for some cheap 3-packs and only found a couple of Pao sets. I decided to pick one up anyway and while standing in line to check out I noticed a guy 2-3 people ahead of me with a shopping basket FILLED with all the "good" 2-packs. He must have had 12-14 easily. Nothing else in the cart either. He obviously came just for those, and even knew enough to bypass the less attractive Pao set.

based on that observation you have to figure the guy is a scalper right? Well, here is the kicker - dude was like 80 years old! Waaaay past the age of anyone I have ever seen on a toy aisle without a grandkid in tow. It was just so bizarre...I was tempted to talk to the guy but I had a strong feeling he would snap at me for my impudence. Lol

Jesus Christ, the most important sentence in the whole damn show is a throwaway line by Gilley!

I don't like seeing anyone outfox Arya.

Thanks in advance to the Internet for the screen grab of that scroll I look forward to reading tomorrow.  :D

Yeah I had to grab six at that price today, still less than the price of a single figure normally...nuts.

I figure at minimum I can do some half assed customs or kitbashes with them.

Kinda looks like a garden weasel.

I'm with you.  I think this is the feared LT (Landscape Trooper).

Thank you for the literal LOL!

I made out pretty well today...picked up a few Jedha Revolt packs for $7.48, a couple more Rebels figures for $2.38 and a half dozen Jyns and Cassians for $2.96 a pop. I'm about to go on vacation so it seemed like a good time for a Target blitz.

A couple of the Targets around here just hit $2.96 clearance price for their SWB 6" figs.

Nothing left but a sea of Jyns and Cassians, but at that price I can't pass even those stinkers up. (I'm weak, I admit it)

I could still grab 5 or 6 of these from any number of Walgreens around here.

According to Brickseek, a few of the Targets around here have hit further clearance (finally)...$2.38 for 3.75" and $2.96 for 6". I checked last night but the prices were not in effect yet...hopefully today.

At that price, even the seas of Jyns and Cassians start to look tempting.

I ordered a Fenn Rau last night as soon as I read about this, but now im wishing I had gotten two. Think EE will add one to my order if I call them?

I have a feeling this is going to be a lot more like the Astromech 3-pack than the Snowtrooper Captain or Hovertank Driver in terms of scarcity. That was an SDCC exclusive too as I recall. And it only made a very brief appearance in stores around here.

Yeah, wtf is he holding...a laser axe or something?  :P
