Apparently Walmart has no plans to carry these? I've seen a few remnants at Target and GameStop, and a lone Obi at TRU once. It's like every store that got these only got one case each and that's it. Weird rollout.

I got Han and R2 at a Wally that really doesn't carry much in the way of toys compared to other Wallys.  So, debunked.

Luke and Obi-Wan are easily findable for less than retail.

R2-D2 and Han Solo, while out of production for a couple years now, were clearanced out at the time when they were in stores.  This may be why they were wary to pack these heavily.  But the alternative is to pack another item heavier that is currently clogging distribution.  What a mess.

Leia is easily available but this one is slightly different.

That means that they will sell



Once you fix the Kmart ones ability to stand I think it's the best deco personally. 
Can you point me in the right direction on this?  I have a KM version and it will not stand.

A puzzling move to discontinue something that clearly hasn't sold through as it could. I have never seen one in a shelf.  I got mine by watching brick seeker religiously, and even then the Taarget employees clearly did not want to sell it to my wife when she went in to get it. These same employees told me they sold through to people lined up on the release day, when I was there the second the store opened, and got back there within a minute after opening.

This was a scalper's wet dream.

And the showrunners have explained that it'd be too costly to CGI out his hand going forward.  I don't expect it'll ever happen.

Yup.  They can't go the Luke Skywalker/Agent Coulson route of wearing a glove over a robotic prosthesis here; it would look crappy like Merle's prosthesis did.

It was really good.  Very graphic though.  Too much for children but I never felt that it really crossed over into gratuitous territory.

the douchey car salesman in True Lies

One of my all time favorite cameos.  Scene stealer!

When stores had toys, and they had stock. Not one-case of 12 figure on the pegs stock, BUT STOCK. We old timers can only wax romantic about it now. It'll never be like that again.
Ah the days of a WALL of G.I. Joe figures...

My guess is that Neagan will get Carol and Darryl will be the one that ultimately takes out Neagan.

I read a pretty cool fan theory on what one of the end-game pieces of this series could be (since I think we are headed that way). 

Vader tells Palpatine that his apprentice lives and Palpatine charges Vader to bring her before him so she may be turned to the dark side.  She refuses to turn and pleads for Anakin to help her as Palpatine hits her with the force lightning.  Vader turns his back on her as Palpatine destroys her.

It sounds a little heavy for this show, but I think it would be a pretty cool way to see this loose end tied up.

Should we get ready for a Power Pack series next?!
OMG.  The 12-year-old me would DIE for this. 

Scuttlebutt is that Affleck is done with the cowl, period.

You echo many of my thoughts.  My theory is that Ben took Rey from Han and Leia AND the Falcon and left them on Jakku with Plutt which is part of why Plutt is in contact with the FO to know they are looking for BB-8.  I think this is what caused the wedge between Han and Leia.  Han set out to find Rey and fell back onto smuggling to earn a living in that area of the galaxy.

I read somewhere that the first 6 SW films were not realeased in China so there isn't quite the built up audience that the MCU films enjoy.

It definitely is all those things. 

My boy LOVES this one.  When I finally bite the bullet and get him a dog, it will probably be one of these.  They are very cute!
