And also a few new Origins reveals. I was skeptical about this, but know I wonít be able to resist them.  :)

A new series by show runner Kevin Smith was announced today at Power-Con. Itís said to take place after the original cartoon. I canít wait for this.  :) :D :o

Scored a nice lot of Kenner toys a few weeks back and now Iíve decided Iím not too interested in them. Is anyone here interested in them? Iíll post a pic when I can.

I have Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Tim Murphy, and Nedry for human figures, and the Velociraptor and Dilophosaurus for dinos. All complete as far as I can tell. I also have the Jeep that I think is complete sans a missile.

Chewie is in stock for $6 on Amazon through seller Kickiní Toys with free shipping. I ordered one, so Iíll see how good the packing is.

Picked up the G1 Soundwave and cassette reissues today. Theyíre getting out there, slowly...

Iím pretty sure when I see them Iíll buy them anyway. They do look really good. Very curious on their long-term plans here. Iíd love a Sorceress in this style, and the Laser Power He-Man and Skeletor would really be neat. But if itís just 1982 through 1984 characters, meh.

Iím thinking Super 7 is done, after they deliver the last of their Filmation 5.5Ē dudes. The Reaction and a Classics are (probably) finished too. Super 7 has nothing MOTU at SDCC this year, so...

Soundwave has been very tempting, and same with Springer. Gah.  Maybe Iíll get Sideswipe since I really didnít like the Universe version. Then thereís that Omega Supreme...  :o

I bought in on Classics really really heavily, so Iím really not interested in starting another line, even if it is at retail. I havenít bought anything Super 7 has offered, other than He-Ro and Eldor. Iím hoping I can pick up the Classics I missed for a reasonable price now, but weíll see. Iím more interested in toys for the movie, and I know how much trouble Mattel has at retail. Just trying to avoid another cluster**** like the 200x line.

The Siege line has been tempting me something fierce lately. I might be too far behind since I donít see Sideswipe or Hound anymore.

I did find the G1 Prime on clearance at my local Wally for $35. I left it, but might go back and get one before they disappear. Itís just too tempting.  ;)

Picked up a Snoke and Stormtrooper at my local Wally today for $7 each. I was glad to get them since I needed these for my carded collection.

Received my two Lukes and R2 today. Luke is pretty great, and Iím glad I didnít wait around on these.

Iím not very knowledgeable about third party stuff. I try to avoid it, since I spend enough on official stuff. But the G1 version of Blaster is coming to Walmart next year, and Iím assuming his cassette buddies will tag along.

I'm hoping more of these make it to the pegs.  There's been no sign of these in my area.

Don't forget - these are only Target exclusive for now.  Per Hasbro's latest update on May 4th, these Retro Collection figures will be available at "fan channels" this Fall -

From the press release -
"Available exclusively at Target, on 5/12/2019, and at most fan channel retailers nationwide in Fall 2019."

If you can't find them now, just wait until Fall and order a case of them from Entertainment Earth (#sponsorplug).

Glad to hear this. Tired of striking out on these. Maybe that 2nd run will have figures that are actually able to hold the weapons.
