Now reading The Eaters of the Dead.

Yikes.  100 word or less synopsis?  Is it about Zombies?

Desmond on the Boat and Jack starts giving him mouth to mouth...
My Wife: No! Not Desmond!  He's Dead.
Me: He's fine. They never work on someone that long if they're really dead.
A second later Desmond spits up water and we both cheered.

Funny, I was thinking that he died all the way up until tonight because they never showed him as one of the six survivors.  Never crossed my mind until he "came to" that he could just be rescued in secret, seeing as how he was never on the plane to begin with.  Duh.  seeing Penny on the boat was the highlight of the show for me - what a great moment for them both. 

We also took bets on who was in the coffin and I'm $5 richer.   ;)  Dissapointed at how that part turned out though - assuming he's really dead. 

One question for everyone - Is "walt" the same actor from prior seasons and he's just gone thorugh a growth spurt?  Seemed like a different actor to me at first, but I wasn't so sure by the end of the scene.

I grabbed four more shadow stormies today, along with a few other Legends fodder figs.  Also picked up another Rancor.

^ If you don't want the figure, please shoot me a PM!   :)

I don't really like it, but can't be -1 figure and still call myself a respectile completist.  I do have a spare Rancor though and you can have the figure if you can find someone else who wants the beast.   ;)

Funny how things slip from your mind after 30 days.   :-[

Seriously though, I think they've got too much on their plate with Universe/Classics/Animated/T2 stuff so I can't really see them going back to the ALTs until 2010 after these other lines die out.  Even then, I can't really see a total relaunch as there's really not that many "cars" left to do unless they started with the mini-bots or maybe even HotRod, Blur, Wheelie?  Yeah..no

Let's hope I'm wrong though  ;)

I'm definitely hoping you're wrong.  I miss having Transformers on the market that I actually want to buy, and with Arcee mold already available, it just makes sense to at least launch one or two of these, even as exclusives.   :-\

...and can you verify that these match existing 3 & 3/4" figure styles?  Want to make sure these are not Clone Wars Animated figures before ordering.  Thanks!

That I can verify.  These are not animated-style figures.   As far as I know Hasbro will be limiting that style to Clone Wars for the immediate future.

Thank you AP! And thank you Hasbro!

Looking at the pics of these on www.walmart.com -

I'm definitely getting two of each... they are really starting to grow on me.

Did you order these?  I'm only seeing the Han set online.

Big update to wrap up May!

I really like the Rancor and the size is awesome, but the figure that comes with it is incredibly lame.   :P

I would not go as far to say that. They both peg warmed for a couple weeks in my area, and they were in abundance at local comic shops. Hard to find at times yes...hardest..no. Your best bet to find these figures will be among the trading boards on this site or any other figure trading site.

I think you're situtation is a rarity JT.  I also found Wave 5 to be the rarest/hardest to find of the TAC figures.  I saw them at Kohl's and Target at various points, but they were never around long enough to warm any pegs in the twin cities area.  Shockingly, a local target just got a fresh case of Wave 5 last week, so its entirely possible that other Targets in other areas will see these flow through in the near future as well.  Could be an isolated case where they were just cleaning out leftover stuff from the distribution center, but maybe Hasbro is pushing more of these out now that we're in the middle of a multi-month lull.

Billy Dee Williams and Chewbacca go hunting for #3 who is being held captive in a carbonite block?

As far as Hasbro is concerned - Alternators are dead so don't expect to see these over here.

Sorry for the yes - as I knew this was coming (referring to Arcee & Prime), but I've heard nothing positive from Hasbro regarding the ALT line, but please enlighten me if you will.   :)

Actually, it was at the end of the article you posted...

READ THIS!!   :o


"Alts not dead, just sleeping."  Time for them to wake up!   ;D

Adam, can you at least specify if it's OT, PT, or EU (or a combo)?  I'm getting so sick of the lack of OT lately!

...and can you verify that these match existing 3 & 3/4" figure styles?  Want to make sure these are not Clone Wars Animated figures before ordering.  Thanks!

Yes.  Takara/Tomy is giving the Binaltech line a bit of a reboost with Arcee and another Prime Dodge Ram (though I'm not sure what's different about that one.)  As far as Hasbro is concerned - Alternators are dead so don't expect to see these over here.

I thought an earlier report from Hasbto said Alts were not dead, just shelved for another year?
