    As I may have mentioned elsewhere, the 3.75" Rey figure might actually have a more accurate Daisy Ridley face sculpt than her bigger 6" Black Series figure.

    When I was at my local Target yesterday they had yet to begin constructing their Star Wars peg wall for Force Friday and I haven't seen the plush Chewbacca display, but I imagine they'll be up and ready over the next couple of days.

    I think it looks more like an Ewok than a Wookie.

    It does. Like one of the members of Wicket's tribe borrowed Chewbacca's bandolier and is going hunting with advanced weaponry.

    The new X-Wing toy...

    Oh, dear.

    The word 'tat' springs to mind when comes to what I've seen of TFA merch so far.

    I accidentally ordered two Peggy Carter Funko Pops! :guffaw: I think I'll stick the other on ebay. Might be easier than messing with amazon...

    Here she is:

    Reminder: The first Star Wars global unboxing live stream starts in 20 minutes (5:45 Eastern). Watch here

    ETA: Ok, that was lame. I honestly don't know what I was expecting, though. :lol:

    Yeah, I keep "seeing" Aang's flying bison, Appa, from "Avatar: the Last AirBender".

    Sincerely,

    Did you notice that the Poe Dameron figure packed with his X-Wing barely even fits inside the cockpit? I can't tell you how much eyerolling I and other collectors have been doing lately when it comes to the quality and designs of so many of Hasbro's Star Wars products.

    Frankly, the POTF2-era X-Wing Fighter released almost 20 years ago looks better and has a more spacious cockpit.

    I'm right with you, Red Three.

    As bad as it is, imagine how much worse these reveals would have been had they not 'tested the waters' with 5POA figures this past year or so.

    Apparently Disney stores will be getting Star Wars Elite, a super poseable line of 7-8 inch figures that look like the 6 inch Black series only slightly larger. :lol:

    The 3.75 Black series looks like it may only be showing up at Walmart.

    I picked up a Marvel Legends Infinite Scarlet Spider yesterday, that comes with the "build a Rhino!" head.

    I often feel bad that I have zero intentions of getting the rest, but someone out there might have a headless Rhino because of me.

    For those that want to see raw video of it in action, here's a video posted by a website called Techguide:

    That BB-8 might be pricey, but he might arguably be the greatest Star Wars toy of this decade. And that's saying something considering that we've gotten an electronic Millennium Falcon in a Vintage Collection box and several different AT-AT Walkers.
