Indy line may as well have died... jacked-up prices + Hasbro grossly miscalculating Mutt Appeal + ever-dwindling space since the movie died down = Hardly any room to put out new stuff, if the computers even order anything thanks to Mutt gumming up the works (especially jacketless Mutt, who wasn't even in the film).
TLC figures have been trickling out, ever so slowly. Of course they're all gone at Burbank & Glendale stores. I've seen all but Vogel, and had to pass on the only Elsa I encountered because her face looked like a truck had run it over. Blech. It made Big Brows Marion look decent. Haven't seen much since I got Graily & Ilene--er, Henry--a few weeks back...
As for the Lars Homestead... heck yeah $50 is worth it! I mean, the UBPs had vehicles with lots of moving parts, 7+ figures, some new stuff... this set has 3 figures, a rodent, 1 accessory, a dome concealing a table with no chairs, and a cheap Payless Drugstore halloween-mask base. TOTALLY worth it.
The Sarlacc one looks ALMOST worth it, as the 'environment' has a bit more playability to it and the skiff's gotta interest a lot of people, but the straight-up inclusion of the 2-year-old Carkoon BP is the real insult. "Here's all those returned Carkoon Battlepacks." "What're you waiting for? Rip 'em open and let's pack the figures in this 'NEW' set!" (I know it doesn't happen that way, but it feels like it)
Does anyone have a Mighty Mugg C-3PO or Lando? Those are the only ones I'm missing.
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.
"We named the dog 'Chewbacca'!"
The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
Forgot to mention that I was able to stash a few TLC w3 figs this morning. PM if interested in any of these...
