    Funny I have never shown them before. But I will get some photos of my favourites and put them up.

    Hasbro all but admitted that the other day. I don't have the link right now but a representative did say they have special things planned for San Diego Comic-Con and they're related to merchandise from the new film, possibly even the grand public reveal of the first TFA figures.

    Amazon is currently having a big sale on Star Wars items, including toys. I just saw the Black Series 6" scale Jabba for only $13! :eek:

    Now that makes more sense! He's not worth $40 or more in that largely empty window box with no backdrop image and no accessories.

    :)

    LEGO Bill Murray has a great yet very subtle facial expression. That set looks like so much fun! Congrats on buying it, man!

    I like the uses of that Padawan Anakin figure. I'm sure a lot of us have wondered what little boy Anakin looks like with adult Vader's helmet. :D Hasbro released an online-exclusive "Evolution of Darth Vader" multipack a couple of years ago that contained this Padawan Anakin along with older Episode II and III versions of the character and a Darth Vader with a removable helmet.

    I found Black Cat from last year's The Amazing Spider-Man 2 line of action figures at the Wal-Mart in Palestine, Texas last week. Only one I'm missin' from that line is Carnage.

    And the Walgreens Agent Venom exclusive.

    Jedi Temple Archives is reporting that the Wave 7 assortment of 3.75" Black Series figures has just been found at retail in The Philippines. The figures found were:

    -Chewbacca (Episode IV Yavin Ceremony)
    -Jon "Dutch" Vander (Episode IV Rebel Pilot)
    -Captain Rex (realistic version based on The Clone Wars)
    -Clone Commander Wolffe (same)
    -Clone Commander Doom (same)

    Wave 7 also includes a straight repack of the Imperial Navy Commander from The Vintage Collection line, the all-new Dagobah Test Darth Vader (Force apparition) and a repack of the Stormtrooper from an earlier wave assortment of The Black Series.

    Do all of those fit inside the car at the same time?

    It can fit three of them. I guess any larger and the proportions would look off.

    Is this an online-exclusive Lego set or can you buy the Ghostbusters at brick-and-mortar retail chains? I haven't seen this one yet, at least not in person.

    Have a Go! Calendars gaming and specialty store in one of your local shopping malls? You might want to check them out.

    The cancelled and "unreleased" 2013 Legacy Collection/Droid Factory figure assortment has just been found in one or two Go! Calendars locations, one of which is in Georgia. The collecting site Rebelscum has all the most up-to-date details on this breaking story.

    Until now, these particular figures were thought not to exist in production form and in completed packaging and the only 2013 Droid Factory figures that have been officially released by Hasbro have been the six figures in the Amazon-exclusive Droid Factory assortment that was sold online and later surfaced in some Toys "R" Us Express outlets. These figures are different.

    Wave 7 of The Black Series (3.75") has just been found at American retail. A member of a Facebook collecting group just posted a report with a photo of the Captain Rex (#09) that he scored at a local Target.

    Wave 7's here, so keep your eyes open if you want to collect the figures in this newest assortment.
