It does not appear to work on the LEGO Millennium Falcon. Not sure what the restrictions are, but my guess is no LEGO.
Thanks! I used both codes and ordered the BS Luke x-wing helmet. $86.83 after tax.

I received my VC Shadow troopers from Amazon. They were both packed on top of each other in a padded envelope. Both bubbles smashed and cards bent up.

Desiree picked up my BS6 Imperial Shock Trooper on her way home today. I forgot how cool the packaging was.

My Sith trooper also came yesterday, smashed up in a padded envelope.

I received an email from iPic stating TROS tickets go on sale Monday.


I also received an email from GameStop asking me to review my Shock Trooper while it's still fresh in my mind. The weird thing about it was that it's for a Shock Trooper helmet. I haven't bought a Shock Trooper helmet for them in about a year and a half at least.

FINALLY picked up the 10" Black Boba Fett FUNKO POP! at my local Target. I almost missed it, it was on a wraparound endcap. They also had some $5.99 posters, I almost got one but I decided to wait and see if they release an official poster.

I've seen black ones a number of times. I wasn't aware anyone was looking for them.

I know Slave I is looking for the red one.

I think it just depends on where specific items are in stock.

BBTS has a pre-order up for the ESB version of the eFX Boba Fett helmet.

$379.99

They show it's scheduled for a November 2019 release. I wonder how this compares to the Master Replicas version from years ago. I have that one.

I received notice that my Smuggler's Bounty box will be shipping soon. Does anyone know what the theme is for this one? I forget.

I did the same, what a pain though. The ordering page kept freezing until I changed browsers. I thought it was the site at first but I think MS Edge was the problem.

So after refreshing the iPic website most of the night and finally getting through on the phone to an actual person, I find out that iPic is going through bankruptcy and were picked up by someone on Friday and he's guessing tickets for TROS may be available tomorrow. What a joke! I guess I need to find a new theatre. Problem is all the other ones suck. So I have yet to buy tickets.

I had an issue the first few times, but finally got it to load correctly. I didn't buy tickets, but could have.
I was able to get in and bought my tickets for Thursday 12/19 at 6:45PM.

You don't like Alamo? It is a stone's throw from my place and we have enjoyed going there.

I was super excited when I heard Alamo was coming and was going to be so close. Then I saw TLJ there and was extremely disappointed. I was used to iPic. I like a plush experience when watching a movie and was willing to pay extra and travel further to get it. I don't think you ever tried the Premium Plus seats at iPic. They're really nice. You're in a comfortable reclining chair, you get a pillow, a blanket, complimentary popcorn and service for food. I know Alamo does food service too, but it's not even close to the same food and I don't care for the seats at Alamo at all. They're not comfortable and you're just sitting with everyone else. iPic has secluded seating and since they did the remodel and upgraded all of the seats, it's even more secluded. I don't have to deal with anyone's head in my way or see anyone moving around. It's really nice and now they have dropped ticket prices by $10, so it's even better. I just wasn't aware they were dealing with Chapter 11. Hopefully they can pull out of it. According to the person I spoke with last night, the company was just picked up on Friday. So maybe it'll turn around for them.

I hope Disney Rewards has this available soon.


I am so glad to see this. That last poster with the Emperor at the top was a big disappointment and I wasn't looking forward to it being in my lightbox in my family room. This poster works. Come on Disney!!! Give us that rewards offer. I've been saving up.

So does anyone think we'll be getting a Blockade Runner from Hasbro based on everything in the new trailer? To do it right it would have to be a HasLab project. A lot of people were wanting one during the Sail Barge promotion. I think the desire is going to increase after this. It was in a lot of shots in the trailer.

Apparently the Walgreen's exclusive BS6 Commander Obi-Wan was available, but it's now sold out. This means I have to start hitting Walgreen's again. I hate that.
