Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Exclusive Clone Trooper

I came across these again today (thanks to a tip from Mike - Thanks Mike!  ;)) and was able to pick one up with the "new" third style Clamshell case.

Why they had to change the Clamshell?  Beats me.  Are the little "emblems" on the "lock" really that important?   :-\


Revenge of the Sith / RotS Deluxe Clone 3-packs
« on: May 11, 2005, 10:57 AM »
Since we love our Clone discussion here, I thought this pack needed to be separate from the other wave 3 stuff...   ;)

Looks like GH dug up a picture of the Colored Clone set...

Colored Clones, Loose
Colored Clones, Carded

So, will we see this colored set in addition to or instead of the all-white pack shown at Celebration 3?

I guess we can cross these guys off the list...

Green Grunt (Fights Under Gree)

And the other two in this picture:

Looks like they are coming in the Deluxe 3-pack of Clones...

I went ahead and merged the thread we had in Watto's into this one so you guys only have to post your headaches from in one spot...  ;)

Good luck to all of you waiting for your "in-stock / ships in 24 hours" orders to ship only ten days later...  ::)

I don't know if he's a "Clone" or not, but I wouldn't mind seeing one of the Courcscant Firefighters...

Jeff - if your #41 clones arrive in beat up condition, I'll take them off your hands!


Sorry, but I haven't ordered anything from them yet.  After being burned and given headaches from countless other on-line debuts, I skipped this one entirely...

I'm in a total "wait-and-see" mode to determine if I will ever order anything from them.   :-\

Until I hear from someone who gets their figures in great shape, I'm not holding my breath for HasbroToyShop.   :-\

Does anyone remember a few years back when Hasbro opened the store to sell Batman figures and other stuff?  It was a flop because after a month, the store was filled with Batman figures that wouldn't sell after the exclusives and villians were long gone...  ::)

I fully expect to start reading the "my figures arrived, but they were crushed/not minty" horror stories as soon as the figures start shipping...  :(  I have no faith whatsoever that Hasbro can pull this off without it being a major headache for all sides involved.

And the idea that I will have to trust the Hasbro monkeys to get me my Mint on Mint Card figures?  I hate it already as I'm imagining having to order 4-5 of each figure in order to chance that I will get one minty-mint one...  >:(

When's the drawing?

The contest ended on Sunday night, so we are in the process of verifying the entries (removing duplicates and frauds) and should have a winner announced soon...

On the topic of Yoda, I must admit I was a little disappointed with the Yoda figure.

They really should have called this one Can-cell with Yoda, because the Can-cell is the deluxe figure and Yoda is the cheap pack in.  No articulation in the legs, so he's really only good as a "sitting" Yoda figure (not to mention the square box in his behind where he plugs onto the saddle of the Can-cell  ::)). 

I really like the Can-cell (it is a little too large for my shelf though  :-\), but the Yoda is really only good for riding the Can-cell or sitting on a chair.  Luckily, I've got plenty of other Yodas, so I'm probably not going to lose any sleep over it...


Thought I'd bump up this thread in case you guys didn't notice the front page...

Well, this RotS version is the one I got.  *whew*  :)

I'm not really interested in the TPM color since I've already got like 4 of those (the 3-pack and the one from the Naboo Ship).

I guess it fits with the standard Hasbro practice to take the suckiest figure in a wave (Vulture Droid) and make it the one that pisses collectors off because they can't get it (or all the variations of it)!  :P

Anyone have a picture of the color variants on the Vulture Droid?  :-\

I got one last week, but have no idea which one it is...  :(

I don't really care if we get all the Clones with the pretty paint schemes.  As otheres have said, it's not too hard to paint/repaint clones yourself.  Just find the right shade of paint and a #6 or #41 Clone and you're off!

What I would like to see though are all the unique Clone Commanders - those with the different helmets/armor designs, like #33 and Bacarra.  I'm glad we're getting Bly in the Evolutions set and I'd like to see Commander Cody and the other Commanders too.


Kubricks / Series 4
« on: May 9, 2005, 04:59 PM »
I had a dream last night about SW Series 4...

In my dream the chases were:

Lobot (in the Bespin Luke box) - 3/48
Capt/Adm Piett (in the Vader Box) - 1/96
Imperial Dignitary (in the Emperor box) - 1/96

In my dream, they kicked ass!  Guess I'm starting to get ansy for Series 4 in a few weeks!

Of course, I am not known to predict the future, so take it with a grain of salt for now.  If it turns out to be right, I'll start up my own Psychic hot-line or something...  :P

From the fine folks at Hasbro:

"As our collector fans know, Target will offer an exclusive Star Wars: Episode III Collector's Case 5 pack for 2005. Originally scheduled for release early May, we are reworking based on initial collector feedback, making adjustments to ensure every Star Wars: Episode III 3 3/4 inch action figure fits properly within each case.  We will update fans on availability of this improved value 5-pack version when we have more information.
Thanks for your feedback and we are confident you will enjoy the final product soon. "
