Comments: "Victims of the almighty Sarlacc, his Excellency hopes that you will die honorably..." But Luke isn't about to let his friends die at the Pit of Carkoon. As the young Jedi stands on the skiff above the hungry Sarlacc, he springs his daring escape plan. Boba Fett uses the firing grappling hook in his gauntlet to briefly recapture Luke, but with a lightsaber's slash, Skywalker is once again free. One by one, Jabba's guards fall into the pit to be devoured by the Sarlacc. Lando barely escapes from becoming the crature's next meal, and is saved just in time by Han Solo. But Boba Fett doesn't fare as well; Han accidentally activates Fett's backpack and sends the bounty hunter tumbling into the Sarlacc's gaping mouth!

    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
