Here's another question in the meantime:

Any good "May the 4th" deals out there? It's also Free Comic Book Day, so make sure you check out you local comic shop if you're into that. I always take my kids, Big B Comics in Niagara Falls is a really nice, clean, bright kid-friendly store. They get people to bring a food item and wear costumes for extra free comics. We always pick out something to buy as well, to support the store. There's a Star Wars Adventures issue again this year, and a bunch more that I'm sure my girls will want - Pokemon, Descendents, Minecraft, to name a few - probably more than their dad will want!

I think my best bet would be on Amazon...not that Ive heard anything specific. I was at EB Games and they have nothing in their system that is new either  vintage collection or black series for pre-order...although some Star Wars items will be 50% off like Mullloch on Sunday.

Well so far, I've preordered the upcoming "Jedi fallen order" ps4 game with exclusive (unknown yet)black series 6" figure from EBgames.

I haven't seen much of anything for figures for there to be a sale.  Maybe we will see the new 6" emperor for preorder on Amazon.ca.

There were 100 new SW cards on the card trader app for May 3rd :)

I'm hitting up Free Comic Book Day today as well, but will be choosing Avengers & Spider-Man over Star Wars. Some times life calls for tough choices.  :(

Well, not much Star Wars of interest at retail today.

But I did get something else for May 4th - a new nephew. And his name is Harrison. I'll have to call him Han now.

I picked up:
1. A few sets at Lego store, got the poster and the free battle of hoth set. Also did the blockade runner mini build with my son, they let parents do it too so we both got one!
2. Disney store May the 4th boba fett pin and free Ep1 litho.
3. Hallmark Medal of Yavin ornament.

Had no problem getting any of them so that was cool.

Went to 3 comic shops trying to find the Free Comic Book Day Issue of Star Wars Adventures == no luck.

Went to the Disney Store trying to get the Pin and Litho == no luck.

Went in to a Winners and found a lone Imperial Royal Guard == win!

Congrats!!! Han Solo!!! Harrison is an awesome name!!  :D :)`

On the other hand...

Being a die hard fan of Star Wars, I don't get the point in this "May the 4th be with You" day. I mean, I have literally been celebrating Star Wars pretty much every single day of my life for the past 22 years... And in my honest opinion, I feel most people get confused as to what celebrating SW really is. It's even more troubling when I see people on Instagram posting their "amazing Star Wars merchandise and toy haul". WTF? Another day of consumerism? I don't need to celebrate that, right? It's like celebrating a disease. Because it's much more and obsession than a passion at some point... it's so easy to loose perspective... :confused0024:

It's like all these people posting pics of their Chewbacca action figures to honor the memory of the late Peter Mayhew. I feel like we're desecrating something important. Like we all want our moment of glory while showing of pieces of the dead... but these are toys. I feel really troubled by all this, but maybe it's just me...

I am contemplating pre-ordering 4 or 5 cases of the TVC Rogue One stormtrooper from Dorkside Toys....

I odered 3 cases of the VC Rogue One Stormtroopers and 1 case of the Gamorrean Guards. I also ordered 2 'Star Wars the Rise of Skywalker' and 2 'the Mandalorian' T-Shirts.
