The Last Jedi / Re: Target TLJ 3.75" Return of the Jedi 3-Pack

Awesome.  I haven't been this excited about a re-do in a long time... I can't wait to get my hands on a few Royal Guards that will pose like they do in the films without all the fluffy soft goods or hands that won't hold that Force Pike on their shoulder like that.

And completing my "is this a new figure" question series on all Jeff's new posts... these all look new right?

I actually LOVE the look of that Royal Guard.  I probably would want 6 or 8 of these.  :-\

The Emperor's fingers are gnarly too.

All repacks right?  I saw this at Target a few days ago and thought it looked all generic, but wasn't 100% sure on the Rey.

That Poe looks identical to the carded one.  Any details I'm missing that would indicate otherwise?


I'm guessing that pilot is just new enough to warrant picking one up.   :-\  :-*

I have no idea if he actually does this in TLJ or not, but after I walked out of TFA, I was like - how he's getting up there? This would seem to at least support him using his rockets again, and I personally wouldn't mind it.

I dunno... if that's the case, why didn't Artoo just fly when he left Luke's farm looking for Obi-Wan?  Why didn't he just fly over to Luke and hand him his lightsaber at the Sarlacc Pit??  It just seems totally dumb to me that this clunky little guy could fly for one movie, not fly the other times we saw him, and is suddenly going to fly again.

Please tell me that's intended to be an Episode II R2 and that he's not actually flying around again like the damn Rocketeer?

That's some prequel level nonsense if he is.

40 years later and I can't believe how easy it is to just dress up like an imperial and infiltrate any base or ship they have in the galaxy.

Do these people not know their co-workers?!

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode IX

I've been staying out of these threads, but I wanted to pop in and just say that I'm really happy that Trevorrow is out. 

I thought Jurassic World was fine as a big monster popcorn movie, but nothing about his resume left me thinking that he was the guy to take a Star Wars trilogy home in a way that would be special and meaningful. 

I suppose the real question will be who do they get to replace him, but Kathleen Kennedy doesn't seem to be afraid to pull the trigger when someone's not getting the job done, which is a good thing.  Why she hired Trevorrow in the first place always seemed like a head scratcher to me though.

Yeah, everyone just needs to update their lineups while they still can.  I'm putting all my Bucs on the bench, and I have a lot of them across the 4 leagues I'm in. :(

I managed to pick up 2 of the guards.  They had a handful of everything else, but just the two guards.

Just grabbed one on eBay for $38.99.  I figure that's only a dollar or two more than I usually pay if they're $30 on the app.  Seemed worth it to be done.

The downtown Target I ran to at lunch today only had ones with the little penguin on the bottom.  So I'm assuming the one where he's packed on top is the variant.

Anyone want it?  I'd let it go for cost and shipping.  If not he goes back to Target tomorrow.

Looks like it was my lucky day.

So I bought all the figures at a Walmart, then realized I should be using the $25 giftcard coupon at Target.  So I bought them all again, and went to return the first one and discovered that I'd accidentally picked up a Chewbacca packaging variant.  Anyone know if either of these is a big deal?
