They're on YouTube, Nick.

They're good for what they are.  Don't care for the "Days of Our Lives" intro though

I read Jessica Chastain is in talks to play a villain in Dark Phoenix...

Evil BB-8?

Nah.  BB-8's love interest

I would say "Yes" to full case of Leia.  I found five at my Target and no other 40th figure.  Walmart had one each of Luke, Ben and Leia.

I think Prometheus lost credibility when one character was running from the rolling ship in a straight line when she could have easily avoided being crushed by turning left or right.

Yeah, the Klingons look odd in this version.  Not sure why they had to mess with the design, but perhaps they felt they needed to give something fresh to the audience.

And I didn't know there was a Star Wars/Trek crossover with Rey on Jakku making an appearance.  ;)

Otherwise, this looks like it could be fun.  I'd like to catch this, though, but will likely have to wait since I don't have Access and I have enough on my plate right now.

In the interest of transparency, I don't think Amazon is a big kickback but it helps.  Everything helps really. 

I wouldn't expect it to be, but as you said, any and everything helps.  I don't buy tons from EE, maybe once a year, but amazon is at least a weekly occurrence so the total might end up being what JD gets from EE or more. 

But I really think knowing this helps because I'll make sure everything goes through the JD link now.  JD was my introduction to fan sites and I was lucky that Jeff lived in the area (and another that ran another fan site) and we had a pretty good group of collectors and hung out and helped each other out.

So... if I click on your amazon link and save as the home page, would that keep the JD kickback every time I got on the site or is it something i would have to keep doing?  I didn't realize JD had amazon (I know, Jeff, get outside the forums) either, but this would be a great way for me to contribute since I use them almost everyday.

All four teams I was rooting for in the quarterfinals are done.  Glad I'm not a betting man.

It seems like we've had a lot of reveals on 6" figures recently.  I wonder how long until these get to retail.  I still can't find Baze and Chirrut...

You can get those two for $20ish each on EE right now.  I have an order into them with free shipping - I can try to add either or both if you want to go that route?

Or ask Matt.  He may have them.

AF  SW E8 BL GUARD OF EVIL 4PK EXCL            $89.99[/b]

Wonder if it could be the Knights of Ren?  That'd be awesome.  Though looking at the picture, there's 7, including Kylo, so that'd leave two out of the group to be done.

Agreed.  This was awesome!  Could have died laughing.  There was a whole range of emotions in this one.  I had an issue with one part of the plot but it was resolved nicely.  End credits are worth it.

All I can say is, I am Groot!

I've made a list of parts I want for when we go in the summer.  Man, I think there's 17 droids I want.  That's going to be expensive.

I don't really like the looks of the blue droids though.  Looks to plastic-y for my tastes.

I think the problem is that with polls like this, it's going to get the EU vote most of the time because it's a rare thing anymore to get an EU figure without winning a fan poll.  Maybe they figure Hasbro's more likely to do Sim Aloo over an EU character so fans go that route.  I don't know it's conjecture on my part.

I'm glad that those that want her are getting her, but she doesn't mean anything to me since I don't read the comics and books anymore.  Just not enough time or interest anymore.  To some, that probably makes me not a "real fan" but whatever.  I enjoy what I enjoy.

I do hope that Hasbro revamps subsequent fan polls though.  It's rather disheartening that half of the top six choices were disallowed with no reason whatsoever given by Hasbro... and they were, what?, 3 of the top 4?  Next time (if there is one), Hasbro should specifically state which characters are allow and which aren't.  Maybe give a reason, or not.  Or as someone said, maybe Hasbro should put all of the figures on their parking lot and vote from there.  Or do a tournament?  Or do a rotation in media so there is diversity in the selections (OT one year, PT next year, EU next, ST year 4, Stand-alones, year 5)... that way everyone is placated.

Oh well, one can "hope" (Rebellions are built on hope)
