Thanks for the help...I managed to swap the feet on my Luke.  I know a few of you were probably losing sleep wondering if I were able to get it done.   ;D

Amazing how well a figure can stand if his feet are in the correct legs!

So sorry to hear about Poe.  Hope the little guy gets better soon.

The picture helps out a lot!  Thanks Jesse!

So basically, the ankle kind of looks like a U when looking at it straight on?

Mark Hamill teases new TLJ trailer October 9th.

That's probably when tickets go on sale as well.

I hit the mother lode today!  I was at one of the Walmarts near me and was able to pick up 2 Lukes, 2 Executioners, and a second Praetorian Guard.

The Executioners are easily the gems of this wave!  Love the ball and socket wrists!  I hope they are in the movie for more than 10 seconds!

The Luke is good, not great.  I agree with Jesse that I would prefer more soft goods on him.  I would also have liked him to come with his least the hilt for his belt.  Also, one of mine has the feet reversed.  Anyone know how to swap these feet easily?  Remember, I don't really do any customization.

So EA is having loot crates that you can buy in in-game currency which gives you power ups like less damage, more health, etc or you can just buy them outright.

So it's basically pay-to-win.

I went to TRU on Force Friday II to pick up a couple of Rathtars for my kids.  I looked in their clearance section and they had two AT-ACTs marked down to $249.99.   ::)

So there's an article floating around that Nintendo is going to make more NES classic editions.  Probably enough to bring the grand total up to 7.

Any of you have a link to this?  I'm not on twitter and I rarely go anywhere but JD when it comes to the hobby.

Abrams is NOT a good writer.  He and Damon Lindelof are horrible writers!  They will introduce things to a story that they have no plans on explaining down the road...Abrams refers to it as a "mystery box".  That is lazy writing at best which leads to ****** stories by the end.

The best example is Star Trek: Into Darkness.  Kahn blows up a building, then transports himself to the Klingon homeworld.  Interesting visual, but why does the Federation now need to spend billions of dollars on Spaceships when they could just transport people to practically anywhere in the galaxy?  Also, did you notice how the transporters on the Enterprise would stop working at just the right time that they couldn't beam anyone up....but they sure could beam them down with pinpoint accuracy on moving objects!  That's is poor writing because they do not take the time to "live" in the universe they are creating.  There have to be rules to follow, and if a rule is broken, there has to be a valid reason why that rule was broken.  This is effort that Abrams just does not put into his works.

JJ Abrams makes incredible images on film (that establishing shot of Jakku with the downed Star Destroyer is still incredible to look at), but he is a lazy writer and potentially good works suffer because of it.

Hopefully, they get Kasdan back to write Episode IX.  JJ is not the best storyteller.

Hit a local Walmart today and found a bunch of Roses and a Praetorian Guard.  Love the Guard, like the Rose, and I'm hoping to find a couple of Lukes and Executioners soon!

So happy this collection is coming back!  I'm going to be so broke!
