The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: 2008 Clone Wars AT-TE
« on: February 17, 2008, 01:43 PM »
I take back everything I said about the AT-TE.  This thing ROCKS and I will be getting one sealed and one to open.  The added fig is a nice bonus, though still not sure if I will collect the animated line.  Its a good opportunity to jump ship for those of us with space and/or $$$ constraints.

That the best Harrison Ford likeness in a long while. It's a shame the hair is blowing but I really dig this wave of figures.   now we need the new slave Leia to go with this set of desert storm figures.

Where's the Leia?????

I was actually thinking the same thing....screw the 6 boobed lady i want my SA slave leia! ::)

I'm pretty impressed with the detail in this wave, but yeah - would have liked to see a better Leia than some of the others.  I wonder if there will be an Evo Leia set down the road?

I recently dropped all the SW books I was pulling each month - Legacy, Dark Times and Rebellion.  I thought they sucked.  Never read KOTR, not really interested in that time period.

I loved the Clone Wars / Republic stuff, though.

I was not initially interested in this time period either, but I gave the book a try and was hooked in the first few issues.  Very good storyline IMO - much better than some of the KOTOR mini-series books from a few years back.  The new crossover will go through all four monthly titles, which should make for a pretty amazing story, and it starts this month!

Found the new Legends figs with Rex Stickers at Target today.  Picked up the two new Pit Droids, another Biker Scout, E3 Clone, and Darktrooper.

Isn't this just Hasbro trying to "control" the flow of information about product like they always do?  Between published reports and the CNN video, I think its pretty fair to say that at some point this year, we will see an AT-TE for $100 on shelves somewhere.  Not sure why they have this need to stick to an official announcement when the cat is already out of the bag.  :-\

IGN has an article suggesting production will ramp back up in March and they will finish shooting, but the second half of the season won;t air until Fall 2008 or 2009. to have to wait longer, but I'd rather get the rest of the shows late than never!  Woohoo!

Just an FYI for Transformers fans - Target has some nifty autobot black T-Shirts in the men's section along with all the other printed T's.  I think they're just $10 and some were on clearance this weekend for $7, so if you want a TFormer shirt, might be good to check out.  They also had an Imperial Logo shirt on clearance, but every store I've been to just has Mediums and I need an XL.   :P

How Many Five-Year-Olds Could You Take in a Fight?

Says I can handle 21 of the little buggers.  As the father of a five-year-old myself I know that it'd only take a well-aimed headbutt to take the fight out of me real, real quick.

...and the last couple of questions are so very, very wrong...

Only 15 for me.  I draw the line at using a 5 year old as a weapon against other 5 year olds and/or throwing them.  :o

I would suggest picking up some of the SW comics if you're not already getting them.  The Vector multi-timeline crossover starts in KOTOR this month, so perfect jumping on point for those new the these books.

The vintage mold is just as its name suggests.

Anyone finding the new Legends at retail anywhere other than Wal-Mart?

Interesting video, though very one-sided imo.  Anyone have a better summary of the mentioned increase in rates for sellers?  This seems to me like a case of trying to fix something that's not broken - none of the new rules really seem to make sense, or at least the implied benefit to Ebay is not well explained.   :-\  All the same, I can avoid using ebay for a week to help out the cause.

Commander Rex offer is 4 UPC codes and $6.99($7.20 for Canada). Offer ends Dec 31,2008. I'm gonna send off my offer tomorrow. See how soon I get it.

WHAT?!  Its $7 plus four UPCs?  Hasbro you stink.   >:(  Why not just make it an online Exclusive and charge $20? 

At least 5, but that was mostly sober.   ;D

I don't think it really is as much of an issue of SciFi airing it or not. The actors are no longer under contract. With the publicity and acclaim all of them have recieved, they likely won't have problems finding other work. Then it is a matter of being able to get all of them at once. I'm still optimistic we will see the second half of the season at some point. I doubt any of the actors/crew are going to want to leave the story unfinished. I would hope that we at least see something by next Spring/Fall.

I think they'll come back.  They also don't need to get everyone at the same time - depending on what needs to be filmed, they only have to get a few characters' schedules aligned and can just film things out of order.
