TV-9D9 / Re: Clone Wars toons to be 5 minutes long?
« on: November 2, 2003, 11:25 AM »
I heard the same thing.  I assume that the 5 minutes include the intro and the credits and the little snippet of the next episode to be shown.

Targets in MA have been great for a few months, but now they're not so hot unless you're in the market for ARC Troopers, Rambo Yoda, or CW Anakin.  It's not surprising when you consider that most of us already scored these with a nifty FREE clone trooper at Wal Mart.  I'm pretty sure these three are going to need to be marked down to $2 or less to even have a shot at being sold now.  I, for one, just threw these in my custom fodder box and displayed the free clones that came with them.  But even if it were not for that, I doubt I'd have picked these up at suggested retail price.  Maybe just the ARC.

2 thoughts:

1.  It worked great on Shu Mai.

2.  After reading your thread title, I'll never think of Lord of the Flies the same way again.

Saga '02-'04 / Re: Kitik Keedkak and pals

I agree that the 1st round of Cantina Packs would have flown off the pegs like they were on fire if new aliens like Hem Dazon, Kitik, and Myo were included instead of Momaw for a 2nd time, Ponda for a 3rd time, and Greedo for a 3rd time.  Unfortunately, members of retail management are not Star Wars collectors and could not have known that the 2nd Wave of Cantina sets would have sold much much better than that 1st round of crap.
 
Kitik has to be released somehow now that it's prototyped and everything.  It might just be slapped onto a SAGA card.

I'm sure I'll still buy 1 or 2, but if this were fully articulated able to hold the rifle with 2 hands, and maybe with a couple different head sculpts I'd have bought close to 15 of these.  We need something good for the AT-ATs to mow down, right?  Even so, he's a little better than the POTF2 trooper, but not by much at all.  At least he's beardless and a little more generic with a nifty little skirt.

Okay I guess I'm buying my first Kotobukiya $100 Star Wars figure then!

I caught myself helping to ruin a perfectly good topic about debt by getting wrapped up in arguing with Dressel, and remembered why I registered here in the first place.

So I'll try to make more quality posts here and vent all that nonsense over at the scum...

lol

That's awesome!

To JediDefender you are welcomed, yes.

Politics here, we discuss not.  Stay at Rebelscum, the debt arguments must.

My favorite from the article was when she declined an order of buffalo wings, gravely stating "I don't eat buffalo."

Where on the buffalo might the wings be hiding?  Buffalo fly now.

Evidently, she's not that huge of a celebrity either, in addition to not being incredibly bright.  I never even heard of her until I entered this thread just now.

That's 13 more than I've seen, Chewie.   :P  I expect (hope) there will be a big drop of these around X-Mas time.

lol

And 12 more than me!  And believe me, I hunt for star wars a LOT.

Thanks to RS's Darth Schitzo for giving me the heads up on the one clone 3 pack I DID find!

I just got back from Target and there were so many Rambo Yodas and Anakins, that if they marked them all down to $1 I think it would still take 6 months to get rid of them all.

Anyone think the value packs spoiled us silly?

The display, in relation to the figure in the pictures, looks like it would be a really tight fit on a standard card.  Ephant Mon weighs as much as a pound of roast beef, but he's compact.

Even so, barechested Darth Maul and Amanaman, both of which can be seeen at all TRUs that I go to for $4.98 on clearance, were hardly deluxe figures to start with as well.  

But if push came to shove, I'd pay it for Riekken.  He's too cool to pass up.

Was Kitik Keedkak ever actually produced or did it just end with the prototype skirted praying mantis we all saw pictures of?

I know the cantina set was canceled, but I wonder if it's just that they were produced then the stores didn't want them, or if they were never produced at all.

I'd take a Kitik  :'(

If you can get them for $10/each on eBay, I say go for it.  This 2 pack is worth $10 anyhow since it's 2 figures @ $5/each x2 = $10.

Most people really need to hunt a ton of Wally's to find these anyhow.  My WalMart didn't even have the display left, and the manager said that the clone 2 packs were "all sold out" and that they weren't getting anymore.  So I went up and down every aisle in the toy department and the bicycle area and found EIGHT of these value packs lying around here and there, in bins, behind other toys, on the floor.  And this is after being told they didn't have any.   My advice is if you don't see a display, just hunt every aisle I think you may find one or two.

But if that doesn't work, $10 on eBay is still a pretty good price, particularly for the ARC/white clone 2 pack, but not so bad for the other 2 either.
