“The Last Jedi’’ has existed as a Star Wars title for over 30 years, and @HamillHimself is tweeting about it.  This is all from a certain point of view of course.

While pouring over the TLJ pegs at my local Walmart this morning looking for that 5POA Ben Kenobi, I happened upon this oddity.  Check though for the reveal.

At first blush, Rose is the least compelling figure of the final Walmart Black Series 3.75” wave, but how does the figure stack up?
