Now I have a Blue Snaggletooth, off to eBay to sell it for $1,499 :p

I know this will sound like one of “those” stories people always tell...but a coworker gave me a box of Star Wars figures/vehicles, I’d say around 1999/2000 because she found them in her garage “taking up space”, and they belonged to her brother that joined the marines....
Got it , opened up the Darth Vader head and BOOM a blue snaggletooth. It wasn’t in the greatest condition, so I did in fact put it on eBay. I seem to remember only getting about 300 for it though.

I received this from Disney Movie Insiders yesterday...

Disney Movie Insiders said:
On June 3 2021, Disney Movie Insiders will resume our policy to expire points in member accounts where there has been prolonged points inactivity.

Beginning on this date and continuing after, your Disney Movie Insiders points will expire if you haven’t redeemed for a reward, or earned or redeemed any points in the previous 365 consecutive days. You can read more about our points expiration policy in our terms and conditions.

To find your most recent point history, click on your name in the upper left hand corner of the Disney Movie Insiders site and select “Point History.” In the app, you can simply click on the studio icon in the upper right hand corner and then select “Point History.”
I don't think this will be an issue for most of us.

Is anyone else collecting these? Seems like they're getting two per week, although there's an odd total of 9. Last week I picked up Kylo and x-wing Luke. Today I got Chewie and the Sith trooper.

I have so many of those kid meal toys and more than likely I will never display them, so I think I am done collecting them. Plus I don't eat fast food, so picking them up would be a huge pain.

I thought you hate these kinds of things? You compared the Pop! Deluxe vehicles to these and decided not to get them.

Walmart has the BS6 Archive Series in stock. Just ordered another Shore Trooper since I am still waiting for Target to come through on this. It's supposed to arrive tomorrow.

What's weird is they're all different prices and the Shore Trooper is the most expensive. That figures!

I also found out I had pre-ordered a Tank Driver from Hasbro Pulse, probably because I was having issues with Target. It shipped this morning.

I just found out these are Target exclusives. That sucks!!!

  • 087-16-7462 Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • 087-16-4919 Anakin Skywalker
  • 087-16-9397 Clone Pilot Hawk
  • 087-16-9980 ARC Trooper Echo
Not happy they're a Target Exclusive, except maybe they won't cancel my order since they won't be sold anywhere else.

Target just cancelled my concept Yoda POP! No big surprise, but now I have to order it from somewhere else. Target is just about as bad if not worse than Walmart for cancelling preorders.

Call up and gripe. They can't fix the issue, but they will give you a free gift card because of it. Just bring up that you should've ordered from Amazon in the first place. I'm sure Target does not want to hear you may resort to Amazon over them.

And I agree that they're getting pretty bad. The big difference is it seems Walmart is trying to address the issue and I am not getting that from Target.

Disney Movie Reward points: EARTH2021
5 points

Scrolling down in the email I just received it list all the disclaimers and includes "Bonus Points expire 4/30/21". So does this mean the 5 points for EARTH2021 are only available for 9 days and then they disappear?

The Pop! deluxe vehicles do remind me of these unless it makes sense, like Rey or Luke on speeder or Chewie sticking out of the AT-ST.

I have all of these Happy Meal toys from the previous batches.

I wasn't even aware McDonald's was doing this. I still have my old ones packed up somewhere. I wouldn't mind getting Fett, Sith trooper, or Ren. Do they shoot a disc or something out of them, I see a slot on all of them?

I didn't even know about these. I've had fun collecting these in the past, but I know they'll likely end up in a bin somewhere. What are they charging for the toy only nowadays?

Yes they come with a couple of discs with laser fire printed on them.

I think they're @ $1.25 each. I take my daughter and buy a couple Happy Meals to get the toys.

Received another email from Target to approve another delay with the BS6 Shore Trooper. I'm glad I was able to order this from Walmart because I seriously doubt I will ever get it from Target.
And I just received an email from Walmart that my Shore Trooper shipped and will be here today. Walmart is seriously upping their fast shipping.

These items will be available for pre-order from Gentle Giant today at 9pm PST. Seems like a really strange choice of times.

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith - Obi Wan Kenobi Milestone Statue
$255 PG Member price

Boba Fett Legends in 3-Dimensions Bust

Star Wars - Darth Vader Jumbo Action Figure

I will probably order Boba Fett and a good possibility of getting the Death Trooper. The only thing is I already have two of the Death Trooper Classic busts and the Hot Toys figure, so not sure.

I like how they incorporated Slave I's design into the base.

New Bandai models coming: The Mandalorian and the Razor Crest. Both available in chrome plated and non-chrome plated versions.

The Chrome Mandalorian has some appeal, plus he comes with the spear and he's the same scale as the BS6 figures. He's priced at $48.86 USD, which is not horrid when comparing to the SH Figuarts figures. Expected to release in July.

I would be interested in the Razor Crest, but it sounds like it's pretty small.

I definitely want to get the Death Trooper bust. I like the Fett 3DL bust a lot but was hoping for the new paint deco from the Mandalorian. I most likely won't be getting the Obi-Wan statue but I do like how they sculpted the fabric on him it looks very real.

I kinda like the vader. Its unique. But I would want a nice card, not the simple packaging they used on the concept boba.

Just pre-ordered the Legends 3D Boba Fett and the Death Trooper mini bust. No idea when these are estimated to ship since Gentle Giant doesn't bother with those pesky details.

I had also considered signing up for the free shipping program, but after viewing the details it didn't make a whole lot of sense considering it's almost May.

Gentle Giant said:
The program will provide Free Shipping via UPS SurePost and UPS Ground from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021
I don't understand why Gentle Giant is not able to have people sign up for the PG membership or the free shipping any time throughout the year and just expire after a year. It doesn't seem that tough.

Stopped at the Target at Scottsdale Road/Ashler Hills today and they had NOT ONE action figure. No Black Series, no Vintage Collection. Even the Jar Jar's were gone.
