The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Greivous' Cough?
« on: May 11, 2005, 03:06 PM »
Is there an audio sample someplace (like a preview, trailer, tv ad) of his cough in the movie? 

I don't think I've actually heard his movie voice yet, just the cartoon network version.  If there is a grevious audio clip, I think missed that one...  :-\

Note in the GH Preview of the SA Clone that they indicate Hasbro told them paint variants were in the works for #41.  I don't really care for these 3 packs either :-\

Yeah!  Another example of "take a hard to find figure and make it even harder to find"!  Way to go Hasbro!  Now just make sure that the re-painted #41 is only 1-per-case to really screw us...   ::)

Go ahead and give us some paint variants on #38 AT-TE Gunner too while you're at it...

Revenge of the Sith / Re: Target Exclusive Clone Trooper

Jeff - you mean different from Vader and the 5-pack of cases clamshell or different from previous releases of the SA Clone?

It is a third style clamshell case.

Style 1 - came with the Lava Vader and Target 5-packs
Style 2 - came with the Clone Trooper.  It has Vader Emblems on the "Locks".
Style 3 - came with the Clone Trooper.  It had Clone Emblems on the "Locks".

Someone reported somewhere around here, but I can't remember who it was.   :-[

I can take a better picture when I get home tonight, but for now this image (borrowed from GalacticHunter) should clear up what I mean:



You can see the first case the Clone came in had "firey crosses" on the locks of the case, the same emblems that were on the lock-nubs of the Vader case.  The new version of the Clone Trooper case has what looks like a laser bolt of something on the little locking nubs at the top.

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 HTS.com 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!

 ;D

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 www.HasbroCollector.com 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...

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...  :(
