The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Animated OT Figures?

I won't buy, that's for sure.

Still on the fence about the CW animated, but if they add in OTC, that's a nice excuse for me to back out of the whole line.

Its much better than getting a piece of paper saying you can buy one. You know, they gave out 10 to the first 10 people for ROTS? :P

Hunh?  ???

Seriously, I can't believe how many pictures you put up of your shoes... ::)

Does the Dark Knight suit have nipples?

I think you guys are starting to miss the point.  These last few aren't really out of context from what I can tell.  Try something more like this:

So, how large is it?

*Must resist urge to take out of context*

I was actually wondering the same thing.  I didn't realize this would be in the $20 assortment, which makes me think its smaller than I first thought...

Animated Jawas, eh?  Between that and an ARF (?) trooper, I'm mildly intrigued.  Every time I try to ecape this line, they lure me back in...

Yeah, guess you're right. But the animated clones are 8$ each. buying 19 more would cost a lot.
True, if you're filling them up with animated clones.

Most of us have enough realistic clones to fill several AT-TEs.

Great point.  I wonder how many of us are buying to fill up with the "normal" line versus animated figs.  I'm putting regular clones in mine.

Kubricks / Re: Custom OOM-9

Just a quick OOM-9 custom before Series 9 shows up and I have clones to repaint...



These are pretty cool.  You should take some Hasbro fig clone lightning and make one with boomer damage!

I saw this show up on the side show news letter:

I really like the animated look of the clones. Wish more came with it

Well, if they added figs, they would add cost, so that doesn't make much sense.  I'd rather they dropped the fig and made in $90 personally.  You CAN always just buy more basic clones you know...

Anyone know if this is a "for purchase" product or a freebie when you spend $25 like  TRU has done with past SW Exclusives?

 I liked Jason Bateman's character.


Jason Bateman deserves some kind of award for world's greatest career revival.  He pops up all over the place in supporting roles and is absolutely brilliant in all of them.

I'm with you - I can't think of anything he's done that I haven't liked and he does seem to be everywhere lately.  I have developed a slight man crush on JB.  :-[

I don't agree. I havn't seen one movie related toy line fly off the shelves this summer because of kid demand. Batman, Hulk, Ironman and Indy are all stinking up the pegs around here. I still haven't seen wave 3 or 4 of Indy. The pegs are too full.  The only one that seems to be moving is Speed Racer just because its toy car based. That's the same reason Cars still does well at retail.

If Hasbro over does it (and they will) we won't be able to absorb these without alot of help from the kids. It sounds like alot of us aren't going to help the situation either. I know I'm not. I think we are in the last years folks.

I'm surprised that you have Iron Man figures lining the pegs near you.  Haven't seen the others sell very well, but I live in the land of 1,000 Targets and none of the ones near me have had IM figs for over a month.  The endcap they dedicated was too small and these things old like hot cakes once the movie established itself.  I do think there will be stronger demand for the CW stuff - star wars always sells better than crap like Hulk because it just has that much bigger fan base.

I'm also surprised to read all of these posts and see most people say they will buy the new vehicles.  Wasn't that long ago that Hasbro was frequently stating they could not sculpt new vehicles and expect to make a profit, and here we have a new line where most collectors seem to only be interested inthe new vehicles.  I'm curious to know if times have changed or if Hasbro has always under estimated the demand for these.  Or maybe they just came up with the a few kick butt ideas all at once.  I'm in the vehicle buyer crowd - definitely going to find a way to get the BMF Falcon and at least an AT-TE if not two.

More EU Figs please!!!

Here's my top 15:

CW K'Kruhk (Movie Style)
EU Guri
EU Bastila Shan
EU Jaina Solo (NJO)
EU Jacen Solo (NJO)
EU Corran Horn
E4 Tonnika Sisters Two Pack
E5 Hoth Rebel Soldier (Echo Base)
E1 Ella Sisters

E4 Red Leader (Resuclpt)
E5 Torryn Farr
EU Noghri
E3 Cin Drallig
E3 Utai 2-Pack

*EDIT* If these have not been tallied yet, I'd like to change my vote to Lumiya.  Just read "Betrayal" and she would make an excellent figure with her force whip and cyborg body!
