    Does the Star Wars fandom get all het up over the Falcon like Trekkies get over the Enterprise versions? I honestly don’t look at the ships too often but it seems like show runners SW show runners stick with the same version so it shouldn’t.

    Some do. But a $400 ship is getting an almost equal number of complaints as excited exclamations. For...obvious reasons. It's basically the same ship from ANH straight through to TROS except for the radar dishes.

    I imagine it will still sell out; it’d be fun to say you got one.

    I don’t know if is reassuring or sad that nerdrage is nerdrage no matter the fandom lol.

    Oh, there's almost no difference between Star Wars nerdrage and Star Trek nerdrage. :lol:

    Ordered two Doctor Who three figure sets earlier today. One contains Yasmin and Ryan, companions of Jodie Whittaker's Doctor (rounded out with a Judoon, meh) and the other set has *drum roll", please) Sarah Jane Smith (as she was dressed in "Revenge of the Cybermen"), Mary Tamm's Romana (from "The Pirate Planet") and Lalla Ward's regenerated version (wearing the pink counterpart to Tom's ensemble from "Destiny of the Daleks")! I did not expect WhoNA to receive its specialty imports this quickly. That just leaves the U.N.I.T. trio of the Brig (another variant), Sgt. Benton and Capt. Yates. Considering the others already arrived, the UNIT sets could reach the store quite soon.

    Sarah Jane and the Romanas (reads like a pop music trio) sold out by 1:30, but that was just a "limited first batch". WhoNA claims more sets will arrive later. My timing was just "darn fool luck".

    The Target near me has Funko Pops of the whole cast of The Good Place, but I don't have to disposable income to get them now. I figure with my luck, by the time I do they'll probably be gone.

    But then it does not open anymore - and also Janewy and Chakotay can't make lovey eyes at each other anymore!

    ;)

    By the way, the bathroom is finished!
    Chakotay enlisted Tom to help him.

    The package arrived Monday. No blatant defecst like missing limbs or 2 left hands. And yesterday, the UNIT soldiers set I wanted was available so I ordered that! As with the 4th Doctor Companions set, I saw the set when there was only 2 left to order! Again, dumb luck was with me! Within 30 minutes, the remaining 2 "vanished". Anyway, I'm guessing that box will arrive ...maybe Wednesday, surely by the weekend.

    This covers the "hot" items relating to Doctor Who I really wanted.

    Thank you! Once I had figured out that it goes way quicker if I put the ruler up as a helping guideline, it really was easier to keep a straight line.

    Congrats for the purchase!
    I somehow seem to have started a Jurassic Park collection now... at least my Ian Malcolm won't feel alone.

    They've mown the lawn in front of my house! So I had to go to the neighbour's house driveway at the other side of the fence to find some "jungle".

    Yay!

    Last year I bought this beach chair and badly miscalculated. It was way too big for the 7" figures (but on the other hand too small for 12"). Well, I'm not one to give up, it's only a matter of finding the right figure for it!
    Thus, the Doctor Who werewolf went onto vacation.

    And a few old ones for the themes heatwave and summertime:

    Omg the teeny tiny floaties! :adore:
    This is terrible; I don’t remember the Doctor Who Werewolf!

    I googled it and have no recollection of that episode.

    I may have to do a rewatch after I finish rewatching Dicso and Picard!
