    @DarkFriday

    Anyone in? I actually saw a t-shirt at Spencer's last week, and was thinking about buying it, until the employee said it must have gotten out on the shelf accidentally. They had a strict policy on not selling anything related to The Force Awakens on it until midnight Friday.

    Seems early to be doing it, with the movie still 3 1/2 months away. I might go down to my local Walmart if they decide to participate, and maybe just buy a Kylo Ren or Stormtrooper figure. I bought a lot of shit from the prequels, and none of them are worth anything. Not sure if there will be any rarities out there.

    The pressure to make sure this doesn't suck must be incredible. They have the original cast, no George Lucas interference, and pretty much an open wallet to make it, so it's all on them if it isn't very good.

    I'm pretty sure my Darth Maul is worth less than I paid for it in 1999

    American toys
    For kids, made by kids!

    I love telling my kids that when they get a toy and start bitching
    "What do you think the kid In China who made your toy is doing right now?"
    Pisses them off every time

    I worked at Toys R Us when the Star Wars toys came out in the early 90's. One faggot I worked with bought two of everything. One to play with and one to put away.

    :wtf::wtf::wtf:

    :umm:

    A chase figure is a toy that is released in limited amounts relative to the rest of an assortment, often something like "one chase figure for every two cases of regular product" or similar.
