Episode #99: Summertime Sadness


Despite the majority of retail outlets being devoid of new products on shelves, there are still a few surprises as online retailers are receiving a “new” 6″ version of Rey – which may be just different enough to make you mad/sad. Funko continue to promote like no other brand as teases for the next Smuggler’s Bounty box have sparked some discussion of potential for new characters. The biggest (and most spendy) news of last week was the announcement of an ultra-high end tier of prop replicas from Propshop – the manufacturer responsible for the very same screen used props in The Force Awakens. And finally, we close out Episode #99 with a few new acquisitions to tide us over until the next “must-have” item comes along.

    “Summertime Sadness”. Do we have a Lana Del Rey fan? 😉

    Yeah, I’m ready for a little excitement at retail as well. Things have been stagnant lately. My last acquisitions were BAW Tasu Leech and Fifth Brother Inquisitor several weeks back. More of those later waves could get me excited. I’m still hunting for 5POA; Ackbar, Han, Resistance Rey, FO Heavy Gunner and unmasked Kylo Ren. Where’s the wave with Rebels Seventh Sister and Leia? Hopefully those are coming before long.

      I thought the same thing about the “Summertime Sadness”.
      But I really don’t like Lana Del Rey, so I didn’t say anything. Lol

        I am a fan of her music. Such a great sound. Although I’m not one who generally cares for explicit lyrics. Maybe summertime is the perfect time for me to pick up my first Lana album.

    Don’t worry guys, the “Summertime Sadness” will end soon!

    I enjoyed the show!
