Managed to get what I wanted. Found the Lando set and one each of the Range and Mimban Troopers at an out of town Wally that is really on the ball when it comes to toys. I was able to order the Wampa from Amazon, so that should be here tomorrow.

Havenít seen any Vintage or the Black Series Porgs yet, but Iím not in a hurry on those.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Load up the 'barge!

I'm hoping for a reissue of Jabba's Skiff Guard from 2013. Doallyn I think he is. Never found that one, and the ebay prices...  :P

I have the rest of Jabba's denizens, but I'd buy a Tessek resculpt in a heartbeat. I'd also buy new versions of the Rebo Band, but only the original three. Hey, maybe that's something they could do with HasLab...

Congrats to all who backed it! I ultimately decided not to, but I'll wait and see what happens when these start showing up. Somebody's significant other will probably see the box and freak out and make them sell, so I'll get one then. Just couldn't swing buying it now, unfortunately.

Looks like Hasbro is thinking that the feature film is the way to go forward. No word yet if this is a continuation of the previous two movies, but I kind of doubt it.

As for the toys, the Club isn't having the license renewed, so they're done after this year. Now that the Barge is backed, I kind of hope this HasLab thing takes off and they start offering Joe stuff again, through that site. I always figured it would have to be a DTC model to sell it again, and with TRU gone...

Ok, $535 is less than I figured. Thanks guys! And yeah, I wish there was a payment plan, but Iíll probably just take the money out of savings. Well, some of it. The G.I. Joe Collectors Club offers a payment plan on their subscription figures, but those are made to order, not a crowdfund thing.

Iíll be dropping the 6 inch stuff entirely. And waiting to see on 5 POA. With the exclusive Rey coming to WM, Iíll skip the Island Journey Rey.

I was thinking about getting in on this. For those that have backed it, what was the final price Hasbro quoted you?

Jabbaís Skiff Guard (I think itís Doallyn)

Iíll probably buy just about anything they offer. Iím a sucker for those cards.  :P

Found a lone Rose at a local WM marked down to $4, so I went ahead and picked it up. I wonder if this price will clear the pegs. Probably not.  :-\

Star Wars Universe / Re: Is Star Wars special anymore?

Nothing can compare to the enjoyment I have every time I'm in the theater for the first time waiting for the next installment. To me, that's the best part. So I'm sure I'll keep showing up as long as I'm able.

Just prior to Disney buying the property, I had accepted the OT as "my" Star Wars. The PT was fun, if a bit whatever in parts, and I had lost track of the grind that was the Clone Wars show. I could accept that I can love Star Wars but don't have to be into everything that comes down the pike. There were about three generations of Star Wars fans at that point, now I guess it could be four. And a lot of these newer fans probably don't give a **** about the OT like most of us do.

I do think Star Wars needs some cool-down time, though. Hopefully after Solo, they'll go to a more sensible release schedule.

Found the big display at a local WM. Finally found a couple Death Troopers. Now if I could find Cassian and some Shoretroopers...

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Sales and Discounts

Black Series figure, speeders, and Centerpiece sets are 30% off at Barnes & Noble. Didn't see how long the sale was. Grabbed a Snowtrooper for $13.50 with the extra 10% member discount.  :)

The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" Basic Figure Line
« on: November 23, 2017, 04:55 AM »
Just ordered Leia and Luke now. Leia isn't in stock until Saturday, but they tell me I'll have Luke by then. We'll see.

I'm guessing these won't be numbered X-XII since it's not about the Skywalkers. I'm interested to see where this goes, but this could go off in a direction I don't care for. I guess it's kind of the way I felt about Guardians of the Galaxy, and I ended up loving those movies, so.

I don't know in what time period this takes place, but a series of movies about the founding of the Jedi Order and the Old Republic would get lots of my money.

Picked up Obi-Wan and Yoda today. Pegs were finally full at this WM, which was neat to see.  I'm hoping Hasbro found the right number this time, and we don't have two or three waves that don't make it to retail.

I also noticed that the lightsabers in this line no longer have the flare near the hilt that they've had since the first Saga line.
