Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 3
« on: April 4, 2017, 03:00 PM »
I have yet to see any of this wave. Wondering if it's time to order a case online.

Just an FYI that the case is back in-stock at EE (with free shipping) as of this morning in case you want to go that route, Pete!

This is what I ended up doing, just picking up a case from EE. I'm still holding out hope that I'll be able to find this wave at retail so I can score an extra Bhodi Rook to put with my Rebel squad that's on my desk at work.

If you're going to Celebration Orlando and are interested in the Lego exclusive, which is a mini scene build of Detention Block AA-23, you can go to the lottery page here: and sign up for a chance to be selected to purchase the set.

Looks pretty nicely organized, so I'm hoping that both my son and I will get picked as we have 4-day passes so neither of us really care when we'll get slots.

Here's a pic of the set:

I have yet to see any of this wave. Wondering if it's time to order a case online. The pain is that darn Leia in there. Would have made a lot more sense to just triple pack the two troopers instead of that Leia figure.

6 inch? I regret ever having started. It's nice, but it just doesn't fit into my collecting universe and in a lot of ways, I feel like we're starting collecting all over, especially with the vintage packaging coming out. I'd much rather have all that in 3.75 inch form.

I agree 100%. I decided for some reason to collect the 6" TFA figures. I don't know why, I just did. Thankfully, I was able to limit myself there - I didn't grab any RO 6" figures and I will not be getting any 6" figures from The Last Jedi.

I'm getting into a phase where I'd much rather have Lego anyway, so less $$$ spent on Hasbro means more $$$ to spend on Lego.

Picked up all three new Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 sets at the Toys R Us near where I work - super excited about these! It's the sets from the 1st Guardians of the Galaxy movie that got me to branch out from collecting Lego Star Wars to also collecting Lego Super Heroes sets...

I guess the "new" Star Wars sets are officially released now, although, I saw a box at WalMart that said that the sets shouldn't be put out until March 1st (OOOPS!)

Anyway, I was able to score all four of the new Microfighters (U-Wing, Y-Wing, Krennic's Shuttle & TIE Striker), the Y-Wing, the Rebels Battle Pack, the Empire Battle Pack and Yoda's Jedi Starfighter. I've seen the Scarif, Baze and Chirrut buildable figures - I ended up ordering them from LEGO Shop using some VIP points.

Have seen the A-Wing, Battle on Scarif, Phantom v2 and Theed Duel sets as well. Haven't seen the Skiff or Luke's Landspeeder, although admittedly, I'm not that excited for those, feels like we just got both of them recently.

That Snowspeeder looks pretty good.

Also in case anyone is interested, for some reason, my local Toys R Us has a few of the new 2017 sets out now, I didn't think they were coming until March, but maybe Toys R Us got the rights to have them early. Anyway, what I saw at my local store was the Battle on Scarif, Yoda's Jedi Starfighter, Theed Generator Duel, Imperial Battle Pack and A-Wing - there might have been a few others, but that's what I remember.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: February 13, 2017, 07:55 PM »
I honestly don't understand what's been going on over at JTA - they are definitely outspoken against Hasbro and openly aggressive about the things they don't like, but yet when it comes to rumors they post these cryptic stories with symbols or metaphors that you are left to figure out and the mods state "this is the way we have to be". Is it really? Hasbro is going to control the rumors you put out, but they're okay with you stating that everything they produce is a piece of garbage and that their decisions suck? Ummm, yeah... okay  ::)

If I were to hazard a guess it's to put something new in the park around the time of Star Wars Celebration. I'm hoping they'll have them then when I'm there for the convention.

If they come out earlier, hopefully they'll end up on the Shop Disney Parks app just like the Rogue One set did, although, it was in plentiful supply even in December when I was there so a March release should still be around mid-April...

Hall of Justice / Re: LEGO Does the DC Universe

Not sure if you've gotten it yet or not Diddly, but the Lego Batman Movie Batcave set is now $88 from both and Amazon.

None of the Walmarts around me ever got in the Scarif/Cassian wave and only one ever seemed to have gotten in the Deathtrooper/Jyn wave - but at least in good enough quantities that I was able to pick up what I wanted.

I ended up just buying the Cassian figures I wanted off of and having them shipped to my local store. That worked out okay.

Like Rob though, I ended up buying two Scarif Troopers off of eBay to the tune of $25 each - that stinks. I'm hoping that more hit and I'll be able to buy more easily, but, in case that never happens, at least I have one to keep MIB and another to open.

My "fear"/concern is that with the changes to the look of the line coming for the 40th anniversary, I have to wonder if future waves of the WM exclusive Black Series line will even be packaged in the same way - so the Scarif Trooper may appear as a carry-forward in the next wave, but who knows if it will be packaged the same.

If only my local stores had gotten Wave 7 in the same numbers they received Wave 4 - maybe if Phasma has more of a role in EP8 they'll have an easy time getting rid of these. I have no idea where all the TFA Han, TFA Leia and Finn figures are gonna go though...

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VIII (SPOILERS)

We'll probably see it around the time of the next Marvel Movie.

That's Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 in May - while it most likely will be attached to that, I agree with Nicklab - they will show *something* during Celebration in April - it may not be a "finished" 1st trailer, but there will be something EP8 related shown.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 2

This wave has officially hit pretty hard here as well - went into my local WalMart this morning hoping to see something other than the Phasma TBS 3.75" wave and RO 5POA Wave 2 was plentiful - I could have snagged all seven with Krennic being the only figure that there was only one of - everyone else, including the Rebels Leia figure and the Rey figure was there in multiples...

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set

The Target manager was fairly incredulous that WM was selling the same thing for $100 less, but he matched it without any trouble.

That was nearly the same reaction I got from customer service at Toys R Us - she looked at the WalMart website listing three or four times to make sure her eyes weren't deceiving her!  ;D

So does anyone have a solid grasp on TRU's price-matching policy?  Because I was in a TRU today and saw at least two AT-ACT's on the shelves.  And I'm pretty sure they're running their BOGO 40% off sale right now, too, although I have seen a number of instances when those sale peg tags get left up after a sale has ended. 

That being said, if TRU will price match to $199.97, and THEN apply the BOGO 40 % off?  You should be able to get the two for a combined $320-ish.  I can't bring myself to buy two of these, but if you could find a partner to split the two?  Then conceivably you might be able to get one for about $160 plus tax.

When I was at customer service getting the two I purchased price matched, I asked, I figured "why not?" - so I politely asked and the woman at customer service informed me that it's a "one or the other" type of thing. You can get the BOGO 40% off offer OR you can get the price match. So basically, I chose price match cause that was $400 plus tax vs. $480 plus tax.

Hope that helps...
