Something someone asked me this morning - is Gree going to be the TRU SDCC shared figure (like last year's Astromech 3-pack)?

Yes, not sure if there's another.

ToysRUs panel at Star Wars Celebration revealed that they'll be offering a 6" Commander Gree in July ($24.99)

They nailed this one, I love it!

It sucks because they technically aren't hard street dated. The box is marked "don't put on shelf prior to April 1", there should be no reason they wouldn't pull/sell them now.

Starting next week, this set will be $19.99 at Target

Just scored at my MN Target  8)

It's really tough for me to get worked up about toys. I've been collecting as long as I can remember, and like everything in life, things change. Who would have thought that after 40 years we'd still be getting new toys and new content, irrespective of their "perceived" quality?

There is not some grand conspiracy to kill the 3.75" SA line in order to up-sell collectors on 6". There are not Hasbro suits plotting the screwing of life-long collectors in order to usher in a new generation of younger consumers. The market is the market and the Hasbro's target market is children, not man-children.

Adult collectors have had an unprecedented run of getting some of the most obscure figures in any line, canon or otherwise. And there are more options than ever to cater to the adult collector with dispensable income in nearly any scale imaginable. If you can't find anything that you like, or if everything sucks since Disney took over, you need to rethink your fandom. No one is forcing us to consume the latest items they throw the Star Wars logo on.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 3 (Spoilers)

Watched the latest episode, "Twin Suns" via DisneyXD app

The "Good":
- breathtaking visuals again - very cinematic
- the score brought back familiar PT and OT themes that instantly draw you into the universe
- Stephen Stanton's spot on Obi-Wan, scary good
- Final scene of Obi-Wan overlooking the homestead

The "Bad":
- they spent too much time with Ezra in this episode
- I can't help but think they botched the Maul stuff. It just did't have the emotional payoff I was looking for. He was built up so much in the Clone Wars and his re-introduction into Rebels it ultimately fizzled out in the end, IMO.
