So where's the last place anyone's seen the Walgreens C-3PO? If they're still at Elliott and I-10 I'll head that way, but if there's some closer to Mesa, that would be nice too...

There were still plenty of pops at Extension and University this morning if you're hunting for the Walgreens exclusives, they had Sabine, grievous, and the Scarif trooper ( along with a BS6 Sith lightning vader, oddly enough...)

One last reminder as tomorrow is the day and I will probably barely even check the forum or my computer.
Thanks again for having us! It was great seeing you and Desiree, and M_K and Juli too.

Your yard display is so impressive. Disney PotC level awesome.

So glad I got to see all of you. I was really impressed Laura and you dressed as pirates. The only downside to throwing a party is that I'm bouncing around so much I don't feel like I really got to talk to anyone for any real time.

Yesterday I was running pretty rough since I had not gotten to bed 'til around 2am two nights in a row. First the She Wants Revenge concert and then the party. And for some reason I still ended up getting up early both days. Luckily I have tomorrow off work.

OFF TOPIC and going to the Dark Side....

I have not seen Star Trek Beyond yet and I haven't heard anything about if it was good or not. The Blu-Ray goes on sale tomorrow. Can anyone tell me if it's worth owning? I did enjoy the last two.

I enjoyed it. I thought it was better than Into Darkness, certainly. There were some plot twists that I had wished they'd explained better, but over-all I thought it was pretty decent. If you enjoyed the first two, I'd say you'll not regret picking this up on Blu-Ray.

Cool! Thanks!

Into Darkness was pretty good, but I was not thrilled with Khan.

The Target BS6 3-pack (Erso, Death Trooper Specialist, Andor) is up on Target.com:
http://www.target.com/p/star-wars-rogue-one-black-series-action-figure-3-pack/-/A-51031643?clkid=d178d46bNdc2786eab1439d56f7d10f38&lnm=81938&afid=Skimbit+Ltd.&ref=tgt_adv_xasd0002

Free shipping is offered and code KIDSGIFTS will get you 20% off. Not sure it's actually in stock as it said back-order 11/11-11/15 when I had it in my cart.

Were you able to order it? I can't even add it to my cart.

Yeah, but I may cancel it if I find it in-store before it ships. You can text the KIDSGIFTS code to 827-438 to get the mobile 20% off toys coupon.

I also enjoyed it. I agree there were some things that it seemed like they cut some scenes that would have explained more stuff. But it was a fun ride. I have the Target exclusive pre-ordered. (Just extra content.) As will all Target pre-orders I won't get it until a week after release. I don't understand why they can't do better in that area.

I'm not pre-ordering movies from Target anymore after the long wait I had for TFA.

I only pre-order from Target when I want an exclusive and don't want the hassle of getting to a store to make sure I get it.
It's not like I HAVE to watch it on release day. But I agree with you for TFA last year it was definitely a joke. And ended up also buying a Steel Book from BB because they actually had some on launch day.

Walgreens Shea/ west. of Scottsdale- Found an end-cap with BS6 C-3POs and other Star Wars merchandise. I got Threepio and a small poster with the AT-ST. I left 6-8 C-3POs. Star Wars end-cap is far away from the toy aisle.

Ran out to hit some after Halloween sales...

Germann & Gilbert Target- A number of Vader, FO Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren helmets ($15). Cheap lightsabers (didn't get the price). Left all of it. But picked up 18 human skull heads, two rats, and two small skeletons. Also picked up Star Trek Beyond.

Germann & Gilbert Walmart- Picked up the only giant plush Kylo Ren. There is nothing about him that indicates Halloween in any way, but he was marked down to $9.96. Also got another fog machine.

Germann & Gilbert Home Depot- Picked up a giant taun taun head. It's actually a long horn steer, but I think I can easily make it look like a taun taun. It was marked down to $15, but because it was all jacked up the cashier gave it to me for half off that, so I couldn't pass it up.

Into Darkness was pretty good, but I was not thrilled with Khan.
Khan was my only real complaint with Into Darkness. In the original series, that this new version is supposedly based off of, Khan was supposed to be of Asian stock, from around the India-Pakistan area I believe. While the new timeline would change some things, I can't see it changing his ethnicity to a British dude. I like Benedict Cumberbatch, but ... That was not the best casting decision.

I agree. I think the problems I had with latest Star Trek movie could've been eliminated if they'd explained a few things more clearly. But over-all, I really liked it.

Used the Target app to find the BS6 3-pack at Longmore/Southern Target. They had to pull one from the back for me. Applied the 20% off coupon as well.

Cancelled my online order.

Never got a chance to post yesterday, but stopped at a few Walgreen's on the way home from dropping Desiree at the airport.

Rural & Chandler Blvd Walgreen's- Lots of Pop! Scarif Trooper and Sabine. No Grievous. No BS C-3PO.

Dobson & Chandler Blvd Walgreen's- Lots of Pop! Scarif Troope. No Sabine. No Grievous. No BS C-3PO.

Alma School & Germann Walgreen's- None of it.

I just ordered online for pick-up at my closest Target today and used the code as well.

UPDATE: And I just received notification that it's ready for pick up.

When did Snowtroopers have jetpacks?
They obviously have decided to follow the kitbash, repaint philosophy of Hasbro & Gentle Giant to try and make a quick buck by doing crap like this.

And the the BOUNS!!! Wow. That is really bad, I mean as I type that in this post Chrome has it underlined in RED telling me it is misspelled.

I received my BS helmets from HTS yesterday. Really liking the Rebels Sabine and Vader helmets.

I also returned my BS6 Jyn Erso figure to WM since I got the same figure in the Target 3-pack.
