Didn't we already get the Android Set?

And they broke it already. We knew the Mouse was in over his head on this one.

So many hoods...

Prometheus was oversold in its advertising. Disappointing overall.

So Pete is in Disney about to get all up in the Mouse's business.

Poor Mickey...

Pete's devotion is, indeed, impressive. In seven years of collecting locally with him, this is nothing new to me.
This promotion is something less than impressive. I hope they're ready for Pete in Disney. Somehow, I doubt the Mouse will be able to hang with my boy.

Actually though I never even saw a Clone Cannon.  :)  I can't say I care about that either.

I saw it at TRU a few times. Although I  stay away from Clone Wars stuff, this looked too cool to pass up. Yet, I did each time I saw it. I figured it'd hit WM or Target for cheeper. But, no.

I found all three of mine at Wal-Mart and never paid the same price twice. $16, $18 and $20.

I just want to add a Bespin Han to my carded collection. Not too worked up about what's on the card.

$50 for four figures? I don't think so.

Hasbro has to understand it has made horrible decisions about what and how much it has shipped. Question is does it care?

got my shipping confirmation.  it looks like they charged me the full amount.  I will give them a call in the morning to get the adjustment ($15)

update:  just remembered they are out over on the West coast and were still open.  I gave them a call and are issuing me the refund.  Excellent customer as always from EE.

Also, this is now officially my very first case of SW figures I have ever ordered   ;D   and my coincidentally first Evazan to have in my collection    8)

I checked my order and, what do you know, same thing. I've sent EE an email. Shouldn't have to be that way. That we placed orders with a code and confirmed it upon checkout only to be charged a different amount is tantamount to fraud. Excellent customer service is not constituted by honoring the price I AGREED to pay. That's an expectation. Sorry, but EE again proves sneaky here.

Does anyone know if Boss is a resculpt for the animated line or just a carded version of the exclusive pack from TRU and CC?

It's an animated sculpt. Some people have expressed concerns about knee articulation, but I could care less.

I like that they rereleased Aayla. I already have her, so skip. Just need Boss and new Rex. Isn't Obi-Wan different too?

I read in couple places DePriest is no longer in charge of the brand. Is this accurate? At the New York Comic Con, four Hasbro employees I spoke to openly criticized him. Perhaps whoever is in charge now can bring a little common sense to how these cases are packed out because, as Pete correctly points out, they're ridiculous.

Really?  They openly criticized him? 

I've never met the guy, but for some reason a lot of his statements have rubbed me the wrong way.  I've also heard some very bad things about how he ran GI JOE in the past... I don't know what's true and what's not, because when you're in a position like his, you're a target for criticism.  But from what I've read about him hasn't impressed me much.

When they refer to the boss as "GI JOE," it's all downhill from there.
