I got myself INCREDIBLY caught up on Deluxe tonight.

I put on Lay-away:

-2 Spider Droids
-2 Crab Droids
-1 Stass Allie
-1 Yoda on Can-Cel
-1 Red Variant Clone 3-pack (trade bait maybe)

And I bought outright a SA Clone (just one SA Clone chilling on the pegs, hah), and a Crab Droid. 

No Vader med tables, and that sucks ass.  :(  I want that figure SO bad and have never seen any variant of it.

I may nab more droids though.  The Spider Droid and Crab Droid are damn sweet figures, even though I used to be a Spider Droid hater.

If it was, we may never know now!

Looks like a cheap enough way to pick up some rifles though for the folks in need.  God knows I could use a couple dozen of those myself right now just for that gun.

That is a sweet clone aeseven...  He looks like he'd fit in well on a cold-weather planet where he just had to improvise a bit.

Good to see you and JediSpyke make a jump over too.  Peruse the other parts of the forum, you guys may find this to your liking since we try to keep things run well for our members and still keep the site more open and appealing to the "adults" in collecting as far as quality and whatnot.  Enjoy.

I can see reinforcements being needed at the temple...  so I can see white suited Clones there.  I can see the grey marking troops there too since we do see them on Coruscant in one scene... 

Be funny if Palpy sent in the 501st thinking they'd get the job done and they still needed extra guys to pour in.  Jedi kickin' ass and they'd take names but they kicked it so fast they could only take initials!   :o

Oh and Toronto and BC don't count as part of Canada

Well, up till that part, I was to Canada...  :( 

Went to Niagara Falls too...  The Canucklehead side!  You didn't list it so it still counts.

Well, if they're like the ones on Coruscant then yes...  Clones there in some scenes had grey shins and shoulders (I think those were the markings). 

If the paintjob is not accurate though then technically no.

Hmmm, more chinks in the EU armor. :)

Plus it doesn't jive with Mon Cal AND Quarren being Alliance members (though it doesn't refute it really either, it just doesn't connect without some explaining).  I think it's all very confusing.

Those quoted explanations are not bad at all though, as far as having the story jive with the CW toons...  Perhaps that splinter group of Quarren (the isolationists) are the ones who betray the Mon Cal and Quarren to the EMpire?  Perhaps they switch sides, basically, and become the loyalist group and that ties them to dropping the shields and stuff...  Though some stuff seems to imply that Mon Calamari is a world under seige more than one that is under the thumb of the empire, at least at some point, and that their ship  yards are the main ones pumping out Cruisers for Alliance Fleets...  That's if you believe that line of thinking (that a planet could NOT be subjucated by the Empire, should they want to subjucate a planet). 

All very headache inducing.

Yeah, I think the technology isn't caught up to the concept perhaps.  :)  I knwo games that interact via this kind of technology can be buggy...  Well, Duckhunt worked great on NES I guess, but I digress.

I haven't tried the plug & play games myself...  I should.  I gotta get caught up on my video gaming! :)  Thanks for the mini-review of the game Taminar.

This sounds a bit better than what the 3-packs MAY turn out to be.  Sounds like Hasbro's pushing Clones a bit more but it's very disappointing to hear about them being exclusives, and especially ANYTHING going to Target who are hit and miss with their exclusives.

I know TRU is the better company at getting more of their stuff in and on the shelves.  Target has dropped the ball on too many occassions for me to totally trust them with handling this properly.  And now, what will price be?  Oh well...  We should know soon enough.

Well, it looks nice...  It's a neat novelty item to me.  I was happy to put an order in I think.  Would love a repainted one to match the one Astro in Mos Eisley.  Just have it continuously roaming the streets. :)

My ideal would be three SAs side-by-side in the bubble on a normal Deluxe card.

The packaging on the Evolutions is overkill, especially for an army building set where 80% that are sold will be ripped open anyway -- carded collectors only need one, but openers will buy multiples. And it could shave a buck or two off the retail price.

Besides, these clone sets aren't truly Evolutions since it's three of the same type of trooper.

Part of me thinks that's the best option too...  3 SA's on a deluxe card with just the right gun (rifle, given that we have a ton of the carbine at this point).  But the idea of the Evolutions styled box (not "Evolutions" figures though, just a reuse of that packaging style) would be ideal if you were getting MORE accessories...  Just thinking outside the box on that a bit, but not expecting it.  But I could see zip-lines, a rocket launcher, various weapons...

I agree that the Evolutions packaging would be overkill if you got nothing additional in there...  I saw the EE Clones as overkill on the packaging too, being something you couldn't buy on sight, and for army building...  Selling it in a store makes the packaging slightly more important.  I'd be more than happy with 3 SA's on a Deluxe cardback though, but I'd be ecstatic for 3 SA's in an Evolutions styled box with a ton of different gear...  Just doubt it happens that way...  The one thing I know I certainly hope not to see is the Deluxe Clones reused and that's seemingly everyone's first thought, so I'm not too pumped on this line right now...  Should be interesting to see in the coming weeks (and/or months) what is what.

Well if ya have 2 open the other one and find out then. :)

It doesn't have knee joints, and it's left arm is limited in movement a bit, but the right arm, ankles, and neck all move like most of the other Clones can.

An interesting custom without a doubt.  I think I'd dig one with cloth robes, and it may make a nice "future" custom project...  I think it looks almost like a pseudo sniper.  Reminds me of troops in the Battle of the Bulge.  Improvised "camo" and warmth...

Very neat looking, and accurate to the pics I've seen.

The Quarrens in CW were not my favorite episode.  Neat elelments to that, but poor execution I thought overall...

My opinion is that perhaps the Quarren are playing both sides and the CW toon is simply wrong...  Not hard for me to accept that given my dislike for that episode for the most part, so I simply ignore it.

Come time of the Imperial era, some EU says both Quarren and Mon Cal support the Alliance...  Depending what you read.  I like that.
