Not a ton from this that I want...  Cliegg would be among mine as well at this point, but really the refugee Ani/Padme were two of my big wants, and there hasn't been a lot else.

The separatists are dull, they've knocked out damn near every Jedi human I can think of now...  That one guy that tosses a saber to Kenobi/Ani is still noticeably absent I guess.  They've even redone all the Alien Jedi at this point, thankfully, to extraordinary renditions.

I can't think of a droid I'd want either...  Like TPM, AOTC is pretty much off my radar completely at this point.

8D8 is a vintage figure that oddly holds up in modern scenes...  It was fairly well done.  A little chunky, but really it does hold up fairly nicely against a modern figure at this point.

The modern counterpart is nice, the light pipe is always fun (IMO) and the sculpt is definitely more accurate, thin, detailed.  With the basic body super articulated for the Build-A-Droid figure BG-J38 though, this is one I really had hoped we'd see redone with better articulation.

BG's ability to stand, plus be posed doing various gambling things, was a positive for any droid.  I would enjoy a new 8D8 though, as well as his weird friend EV-9D9, whose modern figure was kind of worse than her vintage one in a way besides the computer station.

They did this last year iirc where Hobbit's the focus, then LOTR will be back, and so on and so forth.

Hey Scott,

Would you nab me some screen caps by chance?  Of the Rebel vehicles and unique things?  I'm playing as Empire, and enjoying it.  It's a fun game on an iPad, which I only can access on the weekends.  ::)

Saw GoT guys in a display but TWD figs were on pegs in the main toy area.  Star Wars was minimal and no 6" at all.

Got these...  The hype was real.  All of it, 100%, was real.

More to come.  :o

Stupid Walgreens, if they only knew how to sell hygiene stuff.  It's the collectors who should be running those stores because we know what people should smell like.

(By the way, after typing that, the line that collectors know better what people should smell like, literally made myself laugh out loud.)  :-X

Ah she's from Mt. Lebo...  Overprivileged brat. :)

I think Dave Filloni is from there as well.  I know he's from that area.

I still don't have a clue who she is, but damn she was cute on TD.

Wolf Pack podcast did a little early review of the AT-DP and Phantom from this line...  I watched the AT-DP video and I gotta say, that thing's a beast.  At least as tall as the new AT-ST sculpt, maybe a tad taller actually, which would be accurate I believe.

The seating does accomodate TWO pilots, as it should, and in tandem seats, as it should.  I think it's not very detailed in there to fit figures with the lower articulation count, but I can see spiffing that up a bit.  I'm just glad it fits two.

The detail on the outside looked quite impressive IMO.  Lots of recessed panel lines.

I'm excited in part because I have coupons for TRU and free $ basically lying about, and in part because I'm so into getting these new vehicles.  Is it the newness?  No.  I think it's the quality.  These are looking pretty nicely scaled.  If anything isn't it's the Phantom, but it doesn't look terrible either.  Otherwise these look to have a solid bit of detail to them.  Simplistic, priced nice, but still delivering some decent quality.

Anyway, these are out at TRU in Cali right now...  Look for them if you please.

Does the chromed one feel the same?  I'm just curious...  I'm guessing not and it's all rigid plastic.  Kinda weird, and destined (like the original kenner 3PO) to not last, haha.

You ***** Rebels.

The Rebs actually have a slick wheeled tank.  I'm gonna play the game just for captures of the new hardware for the Alliance and Empire.  I could see cranking out a custom of one of those rapid-fire At-ST's.
