    It arrived today and I am thankful to say it is in perfect condition.

    Not too sure about the slide out shelves that house the weapons. Some of the blasters have parts that stick up the catch on the rest of the box. It's kind of a weird design.

    I'm leaving this packaged until I get more Sith Troopers to compare.

    Apparently the lack of sales from the less than adequate small X-Wing fighters from TPM and TLJ has proven that a REAL X-Wing fighter is needed for TROS.

    I can't say I am thrilled about the $100 price tag though.

    If these hit clearance I will be getting a few to make-up for the previous X-Wings I passed on from the other two movies and then repainting them.

    This has some appeal to me. Not sure why, but the addition of the GNK droid is really nice.

    Wow $100 for an X-Wing? I remember getting the Target Wedge one for $50 but that was 10 years ago and it came with a ladder, Wedge and his droid. But after seeing the RO Imperial assault tank priced at $80 initially I understand. Biggs' TRU Exclusive was $60 in 2013. These might go down to the $40-$50 range is they don't sell.

    Keep in mind that those were basically using an existing sculpt too. This is all new.

    If you wait for everything to hit clearance eventually Hasbro will stop releasing items because they can't make any money off of it.

    I just received an email from Amazon that the BS6 Emperor with throne that I ordered is being bumped up from October 9th to September 21st. I'm excited about this one.

    What he said.

    Hasbro sells items to the retailers for a cost. If the retailer can't sell them they won't want to order future items.

    This was the demise of TVC in 2012 or whenever when too many TPM figures flooded stores in droves.

    I strictly collect TVC anymore and don't want it to die again so I'll support this. If it goes cheap I'll get another.

    Says the collector that picked up his first VC TIE Fighter for $20.
