The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series The Last Jedi Wave 2

These are hitting local WMs pretty hard, with the Praetorian Guard and Leia being first to go. Maz seems to sit. Poe, Finn, the Imperials, and Kylo are all sitting. I saw at least 4 at the 2 WMs I went to over the weekend.

I did grab a Poe, however, and would like to grab more if these hit discounts to swap heads with the other TBS Poe figures.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rey with Speeder

I have the Luke Landspeeder and plan on getting the Rey Speeder soon. I love the landspeeder, it's a great mini vehicle, and the $45 I paid was well worth it.

Problem here is that Walmart is the only place stocking these, and even then, it's only about 1 of every 3 Walmarts that have them (any WM that put out the big mid-aisle display has them, WMs that did not do not have them). I have yet to see these at a Target or TRU. Oddly enough, I have only seen the Centerpiece sets at Target.

Seeing that AT-AT next to the AT-M6 was a bit of a surprise.  The AT-M6 is least twice as tall, if not taller!  And for a Hasbro AT-M6 to not look completely ridiculous, it would have to be around 4 feet tall.  Something tells me that won't be happening.  But on the walker front, it was also pretty cool seeing the First Order equivalent of the AT-ST in some of those hangar scenes.

On a totally unrelated note, it was cool seeing Rian Johnson paying a tiny bit of homage to the PT with one particular shot.  Notably, the overhead angle of Kylo Ren leading some First Order Snowtroopers into some cave on Crait.  That shot was incredibly reminiscent of Anakin Skywalker leading the 501st into the Jedi Temple in ROTS.

I picked this up in the clearance aisle at WalMart.  I was really surprised to see WalMart already relegating this and the landspeeder to clearance.  But maybe they just weren't moving?  I picked up the Rey speeder for $45.

When these speeders were announced I had some concerns because of the higher price.  The previous Black Series deluxe sets had sold for $40 each.  Going up to $60 might be a stretch, although I think we're getting a bit more vehicle than we had before with the Imperial Scout Trooper and speeder bike.  A $49.99 MSRP might not have caused quite so much sticker shock. 

And I also think that Hasbro may have bitten the hand that feeds them with the landspeeder exclusive.  Why would people want to buy the general release version of the landspeeder if they had already gotten the SDCC/Hascon version from Hasbro Toy Shop?

Looking at the trailer again, Im guessing were never going to get a gorilla walker to scale with the BMF AT-AT.

lol that's like getting a to scale ATAT. :). Like completely 1/18-ish which is like a Great Dane.

Probably not and in a sense they kinda blew it...Hasbro...though probably unintentionally/ unavoidably.  Rogue One could've had the food and beverage job Death Star play set (even though most of its features would be from ANH or ROTJ)  like the current BB-8 star destroyer and then done the gorilla walker for Last Jedi.  The AT-ACT would be easier to  customize from an existing AT-AT's than gorilla monsoon walker will be.

It's a gorgeous movie. See it on the biggest screen you can. Steps on its on toes a few times, but all in all, a fantastic movie that functions very well on its own as well as a sequel.

Saw Blade Runner 2049 tonight. Absolutely excellent. Looked awesome. Great story. Makes you think and confused, but in a good way. I also thought the 160 minutes went by fast.
