@Mini99 Don't worry about being over at Tantive or not. You've got more posts here than I've got everywhere combined. :lol: I just like checking out what's going on over here now and then.

@grinchy That R2 looks amazing! I've thought about getting one before but I picked up the sphero electronic one on sale, that thing is way more impressive than it gets credit for. With a little black wash, it would look pretty great and all the light features are pretty screen accurate. Plus you can chase the cat around with it. :lol: I doubt I'll splurge on a Sideshow piece with that kicking around, but clearly the paint job and the drink tray accessories are brilliant on that one. :shock:

@Sundancer Squadron I'm sure I did scoop it from an employee. Makes it just a little sweeter. :lol: AND I've got just about enough 5poa Rogue One Stormtroopers to display it properly. God bless those guys who are going to spend three times the cost of the vehicle to fill it with the new VC stormtroopers.

It lights up but has no sounds which i don't mind as i'd hardly ever use that function anyway

At last, Mando' arrived. Posty decided to just dump it on the door step rather than the specific parcel/post box. Poor thing was sat on the door step for two or three days............Glad it didn't rain. :roll: :lol:

I forgot to get hold of Cara so ill have to try and find one at some point, baby yoda species on pre order so ill have the whole line soon enough. Until they give us a few more characters, and god knows when that will be.

I'm really surprised that the little one wasnt released along side Mando; would of made business sense but yeah ok Hasbro making sense. Any character that you are looking forward to specifically or something you'd like to see?

I would like to see a some of the aliens, possibly the Ugnaught with his ride or maybe the Twi’lek from ep6?
The blue alien in ep1 would also make a great figure.

Hmm id love to see both a twin pack blurg and Kuill, maybe even a twin pack Mando' on a blurg or a dewback to cover. Dewback already made so wouldn't be to hard for them to do, oh and the Armourer as well wouldn't go a miss.

As for the aliens, id like to see a Nikto and one or two Klatoonian as we have never had any of those in 6inch form and at least one Trandoshan would be on the top of the list for me. I dont think we have ever had any other Trandoshan other than Boskk in any scale have we?
