Mid March?  And we haven't seen anything yet?  That's really odd.  I'm hoping it pans out, I really like the anmated figure line.


Expect an announcement next week.

The Photo Center promotion might have something to do with the Darth Vader and Stormtrooper statues that were shown in that Yakface article about WalMart's plans for E3.

Expect 24-32 figures on April 2, which will include a more family event over the entire release weekend.


Walmart Photo Center?

Funny.  Keep reading.

Actually, the news team from The Jawa conducted some Q&A with Hasbro.  Read it here.

Too bad they won't do a Darryl Hannah figure.

Oh ye of little faith.  It's on the way.

Move to Canada, drinking age is 18 or 19, depending on the province. :-*

I used to make beer runs into Quebec when I went to school in northern NY.  We would literally cross the border, make a U-turn to go to the Canadian Duty Free store, buy a case of Molson Brador, and go back to campus.  It took all of half an hour.  A thing of beauty!

Tonight, I'm indulging in Starbucks, and a little later on it'll be a can of Full Throttle.  #*$&ing overnights suck!

Cool.  Hopefully that's indeed the case...  I don't need any exclusive packaging, so that works just fine for me.  I was just concerned that it might be a slightly different paint scheme, or that there was some random little detail to set this one apart from the regular/chase upcoming version.


It is the same.  Trust me.  I have it right here.  It's the same.

Bon Scott was THE MAN.  IMO, AC/DC went downhill after his death.  Even though they made a fitting tribute to him with Back In Black, they didn't have his attitude anymore.  Only Bon could sing "Big Balls".

In general, many of the figures who wield lightsabers come with multiple hands.  One hand may have a lightsaber molded in, the other may not.  It's something of a new trend for this year.

jokabofe, can you confirm that the anakin and vader figs included in the press kit are identical to the regular wave 1 ROTS releases? i don't mean to doubt you nicklab, bit i figured jokabofe would be able to definitively confirm.

No offense taken.  You can read Jokabofe's article on the subject or you can read mine.

Mustafar Playset with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader action figures

Dave - did you get any indication what those disks are that Obi-Wan and Anakin are standing on? Are the figures FIXED to those disks or are they just stands that are thrown in with the playset?

I was working the event as well.  Dave caught me off-guard being somewhat more clean-shaven than when I saw him earlier in the week.

The Anakin and Obi-Wan figures are NOT attached to the discs.  The discs are actually set pieces from the duel, and elaborating any more would have spoiler implications.

Since it's an actual Press Kit and not just a figure, I would have to say they most likely will not be selling any extras. Although I guess you could always keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best.

Besides, if SWS.com got a bunch of extras and tried to sell them via their site, it would be a disaster.

Word is that there were about 60, and that's it.  The figures are far from unique.
