    "*Hasbro Star Wars items & retailer exclusive listings are excluded from Hasbro Pulse Premium early access window."

    --Does that mean BS Cantina won't have early access? That stinks. I signed up for Pulse Premium just so I don't miss out on that set.

    Yeah, I saw that too, what a load of rubbish.

    Well, I am after the Zartan set so hopefully I am good there. With it being on a Saturday. The only Star Wars exclusive I would like is the VTC Emperor’s throne room.

    Is there any indication as to why there won't be a Pulse premium window for SW stuff? Hopefully this isn't going to be a trend...

    Maybe because Star Wars is the hotter seller and if premium got early access, there would be none for non members?

    That’s kinda the draw to buy the Premium membership, though, i.e., to have a better chance at scoring the high demand stuff. I dislike the idea of Premium, don’t get me wrong. But, this is kind of a slap in the face to people who purchased the membership. A part of me wishes they would axe the whole program. But, I’ve also been able to use it to get some things I would have missed out on otherwise…and to help out a few members around here as well. Not to mention getting some help myself from @Capirus before I bought my own membership. I’m torn on the whole concept, honestly…

    Or just might be part of the deal with Disney, who knows... Star Wars is still the only partner exclusives that don't get shared on Pulse (except like... 1 Gaming Greats I think?). So Star Wars is clearly very special.

    Stinks still though, I paid 50$ for early access to the exclusives, specifically for the cantina set.

    It's bullshit. Marvel isn't excluded, so it must be some deal with Lucasfilm. As much as Disney owns both they operate separately for a lot of stuff including licensing.

    This is true actually. Disney themselves has taken a hands-off approach largely to both Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios/Marvel Comics despite owning both companies. I suppose they're thinking if it isn't broke then don't try to fix it. As long as both franchises continue to make money I doubt Disney will step in and shake things up.

    I hadn't really appreciated how insanely complex General Grievous' design was before building the Bandai model of him.

    [​IMG]
    I mean holy hell, looks at his neck.

    [​IMG]
    I was initially disappointed that his guts are unpainted despite the stock images suggesting otherwise, but it gets covered by so many layers of armor it doesn't really matter anyways. (wish I had the foresight to take a pic of the guts before building...)

    [​IMG]
    Sure is nice to have a version of him that can easily stand on its own.

    Leaving the stickers off, since no doubt it'll be infinitely easier to just do a paint wash instead of trying to get hair-thin stickers into the sculpted grooves.

    Now I just have to keep it away from any Imperial Light Cruisers looking to disintegrate it!

    As much as I agree with the Premium concern, I’m actually appreciative as I really want the VC Throne Room set and doubt they’re making enough to have supply after Premium would get a shot.

    How did you get the Boba Fett ornament. Been trying to figure that out at Hallmark.

    So, has anyone got anything they're hoping gets revealed next week? Probably a long shot but I've got my fingers crossed for a Black Series Mara Jade, Dash Rendar, and Prince Xizor. Aside from that, I'd like an Ahsoka and a new mold Jedi Luke from The Mandalorian (Ahsoka's already rumored for next year I believe).
