I've got more 6 inch figures than I ever anticipated.
Many are great, some I have buyers remorse with, and some I missed that I still want.

Just saw some pictures of the new Snoke toys. I guess the big surprise is that he is wearing a golden robe?

I've gotten so far:

6" Vader (the 40th version rerelease here)
6" Stormtrooper (I didn't habe either earlier release)
6" Hera
6" Luke
6" Thrawn
6" Rey

I've opened Hera and Thrawn. They're incredible figures. I was going to pass on Luke and Rey in favor of the exclusives, but decided to go ahead and get them. Passed on Kylo; he's new, he's different, but I think he'll be around. $20 for a different shirt texture and a scar was too much.

3.75" TBS:
Luke
Rose
Praetorian Guard
Executioner

Opened Rose and the Executioner. Executioner is good; he's a Stormtrooper. Rose is a great figure, though she's already pegwarming hard and that's unlikely to change.

5-POA Paige: This will likely be the only Paige figure. I have a strong feeling she's going to die. But she's the only figure so far that doesn't have a TBS equivalent or earlier figure. Aside from the lack of joints, she is one fucking great figure.

My daughter got (non-chase) Pop!s of the Porg and Rose. She doesn't know it yet, but I got her the WM exclusive Resistance BB and Leia Pop!s for Christmas.

Crazy aside: I made a comment that, if I were going to make a custom figure of my wife, I'd use the Rose head. Then I noticed the Paige figure looks like her sister. And the relative heights are similar. Neither of them actually looks like either actress, but the figures are pretty close. Thought that was amusing.

When did Trump become Dengar? He even has Trump's "sniffing his own fart" look on his face.

Found two Luke's the last two days.

Yesterday was the Target Exclusive TFA Luke with soft goods and Ach-too base with all the rocks and zero tombstones.
Dammit. I had already given up on finding this one and bought the regular one. Bought this one anyway. Not yet sure if I'll open him.

Today I found the 40th anniversary ANH Luke on a well-beat up card for $4.99 at Walgreens. His soft goods shirt looks like shit, but since he was the only one of original hero group I didn't have, I grabbed it.

Also, Walgreens has a new exclusive - the ghost of Obi-Wan. He's just got a blue-purple tint to him. Nothing special, IMO.
