Watto's Junk Yard / Re: JD Book Club: What Are You Reading Now?

Just finished The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance by Sean Williams, who also wrote the novel The Force Unleashed.  Overall I like Fatal Alliance a lot better, granted he had to frame a novel much more around the existing story line for FU (I'm not familiar enough with the MMORP to say the same about FA), which I think really limited what he could do, particularly with fight sequences.  Fatal Alliance was much better about this and was quite enjoyable.

I found at the Pre-Viszla and Mando pack at Target today.

Has it been discussed anywhere what the Kohl's AT-ST pack will be priced?

I got the postcard yesterday as well.

I got the Wampa set at Goodwill over the weekend.  I think the local Targets donate items that don't sell at clearance or are damaged by customers to Goodwill as in the past I've seen a number of LEGO sets there, but ones that had been opened.  At first I was going to pass on the set, because I expected that baggies had been opened or were missing.  But box hadn't been resealed/taped, so I could check that all three bags were intact and inside (also the little bag with just the Wampa).  It was missing the instructions, but I found them online.  So I got the $40 set for $20.   :)

I was looking at a couple different examples of Bossk over the weekend (there was more variation between the spots on his head than i had expected) and I thought it looked like the weapons packs varied between the three Bossks in my hands, thanks for the info.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Why does Vader Die?

So it would be really easy to kill Vader with an EMP burst. So if Vader's star destroyer was hit with an ION cannon pulse, his ship would be disabled and Vader would be dead.

Hence the giant nipple gun on Hoth....

It certainly doesn't account for most of the variation in colors, but aren't there scenes in Empire where Luke is wearing a flightsuit with noticably different colored pants and jacket?  Or am I recalling a behind the scenes shot?  I figured it was just them being a rag tag band, etc.  The Imperials did manage to standardize their colors, Hasbro just can't recreate that....

I could see Stewart auctioning this off for charity.  Else a limited exclusive thru the Daily Show's website to benefit a charity would be cool.

In other words, you may be right that there will be more, but since there is a high likelyhood that the other sets will just be more repaints/repack sets, no one really cares enough to comment on it.

I guess i'll just continue to delude myself that they would release the Hoth Hanger Sled   ;D

I haven't watched the video, but at Hasbro's presentation did they explicitly say that they are only re-releasing the Sled & Tech?  I'm thinking I missed something because i'm the only one reading the presentation slide expansively to say that this will be part of an assortment of OT vehicles...

Are the droids the new "corrected" size?

The one that comes with Grizz does have the pop up periscope, which the Bar-2D2 also has....

Agreed that compared to the value of the previous release we aren't making out great if these are $20, but I still think that's a better deal than getting a Battledroid and STAP for that price....

I saw some pics on Jediinsider and the slideshow hinted that this might be one of a couple vehicles released...   I think...

Edit: The presentation says (emphasis mine) "Saga Vehicles with figure"...

How 'bout some East Coast love, fellas?

The East Coast is too close to Canada so they are treated the same.  :P

Ah that explains why the people at TRU only respond to requests in French.

I'm liking that AT-ST.  How have Kohl's exclusives been priced in the past?  I'm thinking that set should cost about $25-$30, right?

I'm going to pass on this for now. I definitely want the Slave One, but everything else is junk to me. Maybe if I can get a good deal.

I'm sure you could sell that Astrodroid to make up some of the cost.
