There's only 2 as far as I know.  Wish I had asked for those BAF parts on my BK and MG for you Canucklehead.  :(

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: AT-TE to be released next fall in 2008!

Wow where are you getting those figures for costs of ads??? I work in the printing industry and haven't seen inflated numbers like that. heck, sign me up to work at that place, I'd make a fortune...

I work in the manufacturing industry and that is the typical agency cost for print plan development and production.  I've often thought that I could photograph food on a plate or a happy couple smiling for far less, but there's obviously more to the process than that.

I think costs are pretty speculative unless you work in that business or have some inside information.  While actual production may only be 1/5th the retail cost, we have no idea what fixed costs went into development or package design or new machinery to manufacture this item.  You can't always just make a new mold - sometimes a new tool or part is needed to make certain pieces.  And you'd be surprised what print development costs - I know that most mmagazine ads cost between $50 and $100k just for creative development.  And will this set include pack-in figures?  If so, there's an additional cost as well.  I do think its safe to say that at $100, they're getting at least a 50% margin on this item.

Wait, you just ordered these versus actually receiving them, right?

Is anyone seeing the twopacks at stores anymore?  Series two stuff I mean.  I didn't see any when I was down in San Diego. 

You mean the WM 2-packs?  I've never seen them at retail...

I'm very happy to see them continuing to focus mainly on the 6" line.  There are a few strays, but the bulk of the figs coming out will still fit with ML.  The interchangeable part sets seem most appealing, depending on the role cole of everything else that's coming out.

I'm still more jazzed about Iron Man than anything else, but DK is definitely near the top of the list!

Wow, looks pretty cool.  Much more "adult" than the old Tim Burton take.  Ledger looks like an awesome Joker from the preview - more of a cross between the guy from Saw and the Crow.

Big thanks to the Canucklehead for some shadow stormies, Starkiller Hero, and the POTC Sandtrooper that I've been trying to hunt down for years!  I finally got your Tat Skiff and UGH figs in the mail, so it should arrive sometime in February.   ;)
