Commander Gree

I sent TRU a message with a link to their US listing of Commander Gree. Here is what they sent me back.

We have taken the liberty of forwarding your interest to carry Star Wars Black Series 6 inch Action Figure - Clone Commander Gree on to our Buyers Team at our Corporate Office for their review and consideration. We are constantly striving to provide the best product selection, lowest prices, and state of the art services to our Customers, and your interest gives us an opportunity to do just that!

Sounds like a brush off to me.

The BB-8 First Order playset

Rebelscum and JTA have posted pics of the upcoming BB-8 First Order playset... since there are still some of us left who care about getting a decent playset from Hasbro, here are some of my observations:

- from top-to-bottom: Snoke's throne room (more of a balcony than a room), the Star Destroyer bridge, hallway with a red-panelled bridge, and what may be the trash compactor room at the bottom.

- comes with a very tall Snoke 5POA action figure who has no way to sit in his own throne it would seem (at least not without looking really awkward). He's wearing a long gold robe (which for some reason made me think of Donald Trump)

- also comes with a suprisingly decent Praetorian Guard, although the arms continue to look poorly designed

- on the left side of the hallway level

Ontario Superstores - save the tax today August 12

I don't know if it applies to other provinces but one can save the tax on a variety of items including toys at Ontario Superstores today.

Most SW action figures are 50% off or more: 5POA - 4.44, 2-packs 10.94, 12" - 7.94 and 18-20" Big-Figs - 17.44. Some Superstores have the Big-Fig Hovertank Pilot which I haven't seen elsewhere. The 3.75 Tie Striker and various MIcroMachines are also 50% off. As I reported in the LEGO forum, clearance LEGO is 50% off and the 2 Superstores I checked still had clearance LEGO.

If you are wondering why Hasbro will not be selling their SDCC exclusives this August like they traditionally do - here is the reason:

HasCon is a forthcoming annual fan convention created by Hasbro to promote its various licensed properties, including Transformers, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and Magic: The Gathering. It thus replaces the previous fan convention from Fun Publications, BotCon.[1] However, Fun Publications' G. I. Joe Convention continued to be held as of 2017. It was subsequently announced that the first HasCon is scheduled for September 8Ė10, 2017, at the Rhode Island Convention Center. Meanwhile, Summer Hayes, LLC., which organizes My Little Pony Fair convention, has announced that their convention won't be held for 2017, and would collaborate with HasCon instead.[2]

Mark Hamill disliked his role in The Force Awakens

Earlier this week I found a video on the internet that showed several interviews of Mark Hamill put together showing that he thought everyone had a great role in the movie but himself and he also thought that the death scene for Han was not done the way he thought it should be done.
He thought Leia and Luke should have been involved.   He said that as they did the read through he kept waiting for his entrance and it never came.  I really like his idea of when he thought he should of came in. He said when Rey was in the forest fighting and the lightsaber was flying through the air - he thought he should of been the one to grab it and save the day.  He said he did not understand how Rey with no training was able to fight with the lightsaber when she had never been to Dagobah to train. Not that he should use that as a good example since he is a Dagobah School Drop out.    I am guessing we will figure this out in the next movie and we will see why she
