After a lot of discussions on the latest Star Wars film both here and in our forums, and not being overly happy with the film the first time, I decided to let the dust settle a bit before seeing it again. And now that I have, my opinion on the movie is much better than it was a week ago at this time.
Thoughts? If you’ve seen it more than once, has your opinion changed any after seeing it again? Share your feelings (for better or for worse) on the latest chapter in the saga after the jump!
If you’ve seen The Last Jedi by now, we’d love to hear your thoughts in our forums.

You may not have realized it, but the new 3.75″ TBS Rose figure is actually an awesome army builder by just doing some head swaps and slapping on some different accessories.
I’ve seen some people not being a huge fan of this figure, but I love it. The fact that it’s got such diversity is just a bonus. So, if you happen to see her pegwarming any, keep in mind she’s got fantastic customizing possibilities so you should pick up an extra just for the fun of it (I’ve already got another one in the works, giving the figure a whole new look).
Have you checked out Holeinthegroundpro lately? The amount of awesome diorama building pieces that are available now is getting to be extremely impressive.

The 20+ year drought for professionally made 3.75″ dioramas / playsets for our collections if finally coming to an end! GTP-Toys has approved their first production run of 3.75″ diorama walls – if you placed an order, keep an eye on your inbox over the coming weeks.
Not only that, but they also passed details along to us about some cool new 6″ product walls that are also going to be available soon. For all the new details we’ve received (including some cool production images), click here!
After that, head on over to their website to secure your order at Galactictradingpost.com!
The folks at Galactic Trading Post have updated with news for everyone salivating over getting their hands on their highly anticipated Classic 3.75″ walls:
The last samples we received, we found a problem with the LED panel. It was shrinking in the mold and so the gap lines were not lining up with other walls. This had further delayed the walls, but we felt it had to be fixed despite additional delays. These samples we are receiving now with have this and clip tolerance changes. We again apologize for the delays, we hope that with these final samples all the kinks will be worked out. We will update you once we receive the samples and have a better timeline from the factory of when we will have these in.
Personal Note: I’ve been waiting over 20 years now for something like this to be made, so a bit of a delay here isn’t going to be the end of the world. It’s great that it really sounds like the 3.75″ scale product will be worth the wait; and those that have the 6″ scale wall sets can already attest to just how amazing these things are. This is factory quality stuff and you can order on their website.
After hours of aggravation, I was able to get the damn Nerf mechanism on Hasbro’s new AT-ACT finally working.
I don’t even know exactly what I did to fix it, but I guess jiggling it around as much as I did after removing the head screws aligned something that was out of whack. Anyways, more details after the jump!
Today, my son and I eagerly opened the giant package on our front door… I just couldn’t make us wait for Christmas. We had just seen Rogue One togeher over the weekend and this was just icing on the cake (though rather expensive icing).
While my son frantically set up a group of Rogue One rebel figures, I assembled Hasbro’s latest “big thing.” I plopped in the batteries, and turned it on. Watching it walk across the kitchen floor was cooler than I expected. My son’s eyes gazed in wonder… my daughter clapped her hands… “Make it shoot!” she screamed with joy!
So I pressed the “fire” button… the hatch opened… and a sound was made… but that was all. So I opened the hatch, expecting a simple NERF dart jam. But alas, this AT-ACT is dysfunctional. It will not shoot, and the hatch will not close.
For those that are against Hasbro adding NERF features to the Star Wars line, this risk is another reason to be against this sort of feature. Who knows how many of these vehicles will begin to have this problem over time… or even when kids get it for Christmas and can’t even enjoy it for a full minute and end up crying like mine did this evening.
Hopefully this is an isolated incident, but I would be surprised if the one family that has this issue happens with is my family. Please share your thoughts or experiences with this new toy in our forums.
