I haven't really looked for SW figures lately. Just looked at hasbrotoyshop and saw a 6" 4-LOM that looked pretty cool. They also had some sort of exclusive 6" Han Solo with gas mask and mynock. Didn't see Veers there, so I went to amazon. No Veers 6" figure there, either, but there was a Veers Tsum Tsum. I never thought that I would say that. The only reason I know what Tsum Tsums are is because my kids have a few. We were at some store and they were looking at the Disney characters. My kids pointed out that there were Star Wars ones as well, but I only saw main characters. Didn't think that the Tsum Tsum line would get as deep as Veers.

Haven't seen either. I think Piett might be GameStop? Not sure. Last I heard, Veers is Walgreens, but they're generally east to find around here. I'll let you know when they show up.

This discussion led me to looking at the Walgreen's website. They have a Pop Vinyl 2-1B. Pretty cool, but I'm not going to get it.

Over the weekend, I went into a Target for the first time in a month or so. They had new SW 3.75" Vintage figures. There was Snoke. someone from Rogue One, and some other figure from TFA. Even if they had someone from the OT, I don't think I would have bought it.

I'm really digging the detail on the last few waves of The Black Series.

The digital face scanning is really turning out great.

Picked up the Comic-Con Exclusive Yoda & Obi-Wan concept figures for $5 today at the flea market. I should have bought 2.

The likenesses are really getting good.

The battle-damaged Phasma, I feel like a tiny Gwendoline Christie is staring at me.

They just revealed Geonosis Padme, Battle Droid, and Mace Windu Black Series at a European con and are due in the spring.
They all look great.

I hope Padmé looks more like Natalie Portman and less like Daisy Ridley when the figure comes out, though. Her likeness is slightly off.

Which would be par for the course even a year ago, but they've made huge strides in facial likenesses.

Was Phasma battle damaged in one of the movies? I don't remember her having much screen time.
