30th Anniversary Collection / Re: 30AC Wave 8 - Attack of the Clones

The red fatigue clone is a bit of a letdown.  It's not a good army builder because of the solid ankles and the non-ball jointed swivel shoulders.  The likeness and sculpt are good, but why the hell did they stop short of perfection and mess up the shoulders and ankles?  I'd have picked up 20, instead I'm keeping just a few.

14 points with ball jointed shoulders should be standard by now.  What a waste this one was.

Jango, McClam, Voolvif are all top notch.  Really really good.

Passed on Padme because I'm sick of her, and never liked female action figures much.

Padme is one of my favorites from this wave - I think they did a pretty good job with her, especially compared to most of the SW female figs.  But Hasbro, would it kill you to make a figure with something larger than an A cup?   ::)

I regret not buying the GH. they look really cool and all but i just find $7.99 for these little guys to be a little expensive. same with the titaniums. i got 2 from a secret santa and relaized just how cool they are but lack of space tells me to hold off of them. :-\

On the reverse, I actually regret collecting the GH sub-line.  I started with the second wave and it took me a while to go back and get the first wave.  I decided not to get the ships, but did want to get one of each figure, which isn't so bad with waves of four 2-packs at a time. 

Then came those massive Battle Packs. ::)  I don't mind getting a bigger chunk of figs at a time, but when most of the wave is all repeats, it really blows re-buying figures that you already have.  I bit on the first few of these, but have passed on the WM ones, which arguably have nicer, more new figures than their predacessors.  I'm also running out of room and suddenly have like a hundred of these things!


Why do these get shorter with each new release?

It's a mix of osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and the rickets!

Its just a deceptive visual.  Each clone took one more step backwards than the clone to his right.  ;)

Yeah yeah yeah.  Must be nice to actually have the NFL Network.  I've missed two games already this week and its not even Sunday at noon.   >:(

Hey, that is really odd!  Is this just the way they are posed?  Anyone else check this out at home?  I don't want to move mine as they are precariously set up... :-[

Found Training Clone, Destroyer Droid, and Voolvif at Walmart this morning.  Getting close, but I'm not sure if I'll finish 2007 in 2007.   :-\

I was seeing the Commander Appo wave put out in force until May of this year, at both Target and Walmart.  Something tells me you'll have plenty of opportunity to score waves 7, 7.5, and 8 right into the Spring.

Yeah, if nothing else I expect to see TAC on clearance at Target when they shift over to the new DPCIs.  Sounds like a big reset is scheduled right after Christmas, so we'll see.  I'm actually pretty close - I just want a few more Hawkbats, 3x Rebel McTroopers, and maybe a few Wave 8 on better cards/bubbles.  Everything else I already have or am in the process of trading for.   :D

For what it's worth, I'd prefer the VOTC, especially considering what we're getting from Evolutions in '08.

I'm with DA on this one.  I like a few of the Evo sets, but the vintage line was really one of my favorites.  I wish they were a little cheaper - some of the ones I picked up last time I paid full Target price of $12 for.  If they were closer to the $8-9 range, I think they'd sell a lot better.  I would at least like to have a complete bounty hunter set, but that's probably unlikely at this point. 

I think these look pretty cool.  I'll probably pick up a couple of each, assuming I can actually find them at retail.   ::)

Yeah Pax rocks!  I've got three of him already.  I can see a group of them being a gang of Rodian thugs in the Coruscant underworld.   :)

Can I send the ones that will be pegwarming here in January to you?  ;D

Shipped loose to save me on shipping?  Yes.

I'm up to four of him now, after my wife got me one today.  I've swapped out their jackets with the VTSC Han Endor.  Looks great.  WOOT!   :P

This and the Hawkbat are my faves from this wave.  I was looking over Pax more closely today and I think its the paint ap on his face.  That white to green fade is really awesome.  Greedo was also one of my faves from the vintage line, so thisis a nice homage to him.  My only complaint on Pax is his hands - the way he holds his gun looks odd with the fingers straight out.

I totally disagree.  Parker is #1 in rushing yards, but only because the Steelers overused him, and surprise surprise, he ends up injured before the end of the season. 

I agree with your post, but I don't think a broken leg is an "overuse" injury.  That's the kind of freak thing that can happen on the first play of the season, or any other time.

I'd take Tomlinson over Parker any day, that's for sure.

Well, I'll give you that, though I do still think they've overused him.  Maybe he would have lasted without the freak broken leg, but that's still a fast way to burn out a running back.  Just pray your Steelers won't last long enough to face my Packers.   ;D

I sometimes wish that I had decided to collect the titanium ships, but then I look at my star wars room and the negative available space and think that I made the right decision.   ;)
