Well, almost a year later and I'm still totally hooked on these... even if no one else is apparently.

Just got my Japan Web exclusive Gundam Deathscythe and Blue Leo (Flight Mode) in the mail bringing my total to 20 figures from Gundam Wing so far with one more pre-order to fill - the green variant Space Leo, which should ship later this summer. 

Also still need to track down the Heavyarms/Sandrock conversion kit.  Waiting for a good deal on ebay for that since I'd need to pick up a second H-arms and Sandrock to convert so I can have both versions.   ::)

I'll drop this in here since we have a thread now...  Hasbro's pre-con PR blurb for Star Wars -
With Lucasfilm and Disney's new animated series, STAR WARS REBELS, premiering this fall, STAR WARS fans will be eager to stop by Hasbro's booth at Comic-Con for exclusive giveaways, an autograph signing and interactive panels. On Friday, July 25th at 12:00 p.m. , Hasbro will welcome STAR WARS fans to a special panel with members of the Hasbro brand and design teams as they discuss the popular Hasbro STAR WARS line and share a sneak peek of upcoming, never before seen action figures from the highly anticipated STAR WARS REBELS animated series.

I'm not sure what I'm expecting from SDCC this year.  Not much I guess...   recent history has me trained to not get too excited about whatever I see, because the final retail product will inevitably let everyone down (bad paint apps, bad distribution, bad case packs, etc). :P

I think the Vader may be a little different, since they're passing this one off as a ROTS version.

It's a repack of the ROTS Vader from Wave 5.  Easy to forget since everyone was so much more excited for SnowSpeeder Wedge, NOT Doallyn Skiff Guard, and Ree-Yees.  ;) 

With all the rumors about the 12-to-36 potential figures coming this Fall, I'm not really sure on who all will end up in this wave now. 

Looks like RS has some early carded shots of part of the wave... 

#01 R5-G19
#02 Luke Skywalker (Wampa'd Face)
#03 Darth Vader [repack]
#04 Darth Malgus [repack]
#05 Starkiller (Galen Mark) [repack]
#06 Yoda (Dagobah) [repack]

No sign of the Hoth Han or Dagobah Vader that were rumored pre-toy Fair...  yet.

I'm planning on picking up some of those Command figures for my kids.  $5 for a bag of 9 figures isn't terrible.

When I was little, my brother and me and our friends wasted tons of hours playing army men outside.  I love the fact that the Hasbro guys tried to replicate some of the "classic" army men poses with some of the Star Wars figures.

Plus, they're great fun to tie to firecrackers/bottle rockets, shoot with a bb gun, or melt with a magnifying glass in the hot summer sun. ;)

On the new DPCIs that popped up...

#1 - Funny how many people forgot about the army men style Star Wars Command line and start freaking out about the possibility of a Rebels Star Destroyer playset or new 3.75" Rebels Battle Packs or something.

#2 - On the "Class I making a comeback" stuff...  seems odd that there would be a DPCI planogram slot for the Class I (which we haven't see confirmed yet), but there is no spot for the Class II vehicles (which we did see at Toy Fair - TIE, walker, Phantom). 

Not sure if this has been posted in here yet... just saw it as I was catching up on some stuff from last week - boxed photo and listing at

Is it too soon to fire on general manager?

Glowing analysis of your guy - "the most disconcerting part of Cheveldayoff’s tenure as GM of the Winnipeg Jets is that he has not made one NHL player for NHL player trade" in almost three years.

Many local Twin Cities liquor stores have the kegs of 1919 so it's pretty easy to get.  Good good stuff.

My two favorite local Root Beers at the moment = Killebrew and 1919 Draft.

Ice cold Killebrew is a perfect match for an outdoor baseball game on a nice summer night and the 1919 Draft (gotta get it by the keg) is a common sight at summer parties round these parts.

Oh, so Han's relegated to the "stan" approved rumor lists...  great.  Won't hold my breath waiting then.   ::)

It's a cool list.  But really, until we start to actually see something from SDCC?  I have to reserve my judgement. 

Yeah... everyone is getting all excited about prospective names on a list, but when eveyone sees that they've turned out like Yoda and Dagobah Luke did, they'll go right back to hating everything again. :P ;)
