That's the first thing I said when I saw this last night and my wife looked at me with her "man I can't believe I married such a nerd look."

Just got my Rex/Fives WM 2 pack and Geonosis Testie BP. I like the BP a whole lot more than I expected. It's bigger than I thought it would be (yes that sounds creepy, and yes to fit a fig I should have known it would be that big).

I could see following the numbering thing if they were putting more than one of new figs in a case so there were two repacked/renumbered figs. But this crap where they have six new figs at one per case and then six repack/renumber figs would (if I ever was) stop me from even thinking about it.

I actually saw this for the first time in Walmart last night (figures, after ranting about it) but in a cruel twist of fate they only had one on display and the box was damaged. Not acceptable.


I always freak out that stuff will be tough to find and of course at some point it isn't. But my normal rule of thumb as a non opener is buy it when you see it, even in a beat up box, and then exchange it for a better box when you find it again, JUST IN CASE it really does turn out to be tough to find. I'd rather have a crushed box than none at all. My two cents.

Just picked mine up. Excuse me for being to lazy to go back one page and give the right person credit, but if it wasn't for those awesome pictures posted showing this thing relative to the ATTE and Tank, I would think I just spent $35 on a regular, not so exciting vehicle. Thankfully I know how huge it is.

My point being that I think Hasbro really missed the boat for selling more of these by not showing how big it is or stating some dimensions on the box.

Once again thanks a lot for those pics on jd!!!!!!!!

The Vulture's Claw set is kind of the anti-that...  And then the stuff like the Palpatine's Office Duel set is pretty lame top to bottom and easily passed on by just about everyone.

I like a BP like the Palpatine Duel because as a non opener it let's "me" set up an important scene without actually opening any figs.

I'm thinking that when the Cardinals beat the Yankees in the World Series this year and Pujols has two rings we can really start talking about him as arguably the best ever. And how nice will it be to have it be a player that is even a better human being.

That is crazy. This may be a totally unfair stereotype, but I'm guessing he has a nice paying job and has chosen that his future will not include marriage.

edit-didn't read very well clearly through the rest of the thread. I wish my wife was just indifferent about my toys let alone that obsessed.

Depending on how hurt Troy is, if I was Pitt I may trade that win to have his knee magically healed. They obviously are a great team still, but...........

Just got a Y Wing Bomber. Certainly glad I didn't keep trying to tell myself that my regular Y Wings were all I needed. Looks really cool.

I've heard between $60-70.

Between $60-70?  Huh?   ???

I sure am glad I save $20 on mine and my computer let's me read more than just one page on jd.  ;)

Whereas I agree that this is an easy pass for me, I also think if it's not too over priced and I was a ten year old who loved the cartoon series this would be really cool to get those two characters and their ships.

This is a random post but, anyone seen the PS3 commercial about the rumors it is dropping to $299 where the Sony guy says "don't believe rumors you hear on the internet, that's how WW1 started"? Its pretty funny.

Once again thanks to a friend I just got the three WM Evolution sets, the first two WM CW 2 packs, and the three general release CPs.

I know there are a lot of EU haters out there, but for us EU lovers how cool is it that in the one wave of CPs we get two of the main "villains" from the last two really good book series NJO and Legacy? To have a Vong and Lumiya is pretty awesome.
