    Mmmm no, it goes pretty far, what with it affecting the entire world and shutting down the third largest shipping port on the planet.

    Ports are closed, work forces are reduced to a fraction, but they're still trying to get stuff out. If your workforce is reduced to a tenth, it's still going to work, just at a tenth the speed.

    Just a heads up by Amazon charged me for the Black Series RotJ General Lando that wasn't supposed to be out until October. Though was there a discount on this figure recently? Because they only charged me $15.99 plus tax.

    Amazon updated my BS Koska Reeves ETA to Tuesday. Hoping Target somehow comes through with the slightly lower price haha.

    Maybe, but they should've given us something a little extra rather than just repacks on those cardbacks.

    Like how about an extra long lightsaber for Luke that is as long as he is tall? :D

    Same here, I was very surprised to see him at my local Target this morning. First new figure I have seen in the wild in a while.

    I've narrowed it down. Out of the deathstar briefing set I need Tagge and Yularen. The eBay prices are nuts.

    Yup, the General Lando hit my country late last week…so it should be hitting the States soon.

    My bad guys…it’s just that I’m not really into Star Wars these days i.e. hardly follow the news or hunt figures at retail.

    Nowadays, I just PO the figures I want then just collect them when they arrive.

    I think it's the same for a lot of us these days, LigerPrime. Preorder whatever you don't want to miss, manage the preorders you can get, and try to catch something in-store when you can. I've definitely spent more time managing preorders than out hunting this past year and a half. I appreciate anyone letting us know when things are hitting around them (because it helps gauge how close something is to me) but I don't expect anyone to have to do it just for me, so don't feel that you're letting anyone down. We all contribute to our own ability here, and that's what makes it so great. Some days a single "thumbs-up" on your post is worth a dozen fresh sightings. We all have our ebbs and flows, and if you're anything like me your collecting focus shifts from one line to another periodically as things become available. It's all good! :)

    Got some cool stuff recently!

    First up, one of my friends gave me this! This is seriously tempting me to tip back into some black series collecting, there's so many figures (especially from the sequels) that aren't in TVC. It's a really good figure too, my only complaint is that the skirt hinders leg articulation (I think soft goods would be the way to go on a TVC one). I like that the cape is removable too, so you can have it as an elite one from TROS or a standard one seen throughout the ST.

    Please Hasbro make one of these guys in TVC!

    Next up, I went looking for R2-D2 from the new McDonald's happy meals. They didn't have him (going to look at a different one tomorrow), but they did have BB-8! Spruced it up a little bit with some paint:

    Finally, I just got this in the mail! I threw it in my order with SS Jolt, and I'm surprised how big the box is - it's substantially larger than the normal boxes for the vehicle model line. Excited to get to working on it!

    General Lando just arrived today from Amazon. The funny thing is I haven't bothered to open him yet. Took him out of the Amazon box and haven't freed him. Honestly, I'm kind of almost indifferent to Star Wars for some reason lately. I don't hate it but I've got very little that I even want to bother with from Black Series right now. I was honestly more excited when I got Jaxxon than getting Lando. Not that I don't like Lando mind you. It's just weird. Hoping they give us more of the old EU/Legends guys as that might get the old fan in me excited for new releases again. Mara Jade, Kyle Katarn, Dash Rendar, Prince Xizor... come on Hasbro!

    I was super excited for Jaxxon…and I don’t really even know who the fuck he is…haha. He’s just a fun oddball. I haven’t gotten General Lando yet…probably will at some point. He doesn’t excite me as much mainly because I already have a Lando that looks 75% the same, more or less. I am really hyped for Greedo, Wicket, Bib Fortuna, Salacious Crumb, Malibu Leia, Emperor, etc.

    I hear you. Star Wars needs a healthy dose of figures from new(er) material. Expanded Universe, comics, or even the sequels at this point. Just something new!

    Personally I want them to get moving on Bad Batch Vintage Collection figures.

    I think there should be a few waves of BS devoted to just OT. Fill in some Kenner figure gaps. We are just 4 figures from completing the ANH Kenner line (Walrus Man not counted since he is on the way). 9 from the ESB line. (Bespin Guards could be combined into one set with swappable head/hands) Most of these figures are generic enough to fit into any era display.

    Was out and about and saw this. Was on the fence about getting any of these, but it was the last one and I figured what the hell. Now I need an Obi-Wan.
