The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 27 (2012 Wave 2)

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.

Will certainly keep an eye out for ya. I bought all five I've seen so far (one each for me, two Legacy of Terror and a Brain Invaders for my buddy).

Looks like the scuzzballs who thought they'd take advantage of these hitting will be taking a bath on eBay. Nice!

Fringe was recently upgraded by Michael Ausiello, ex of TV Guide, to "a safe bet" for renewal. Alcatraz needs help. Instructions here:

I got the Toys R Us set for $3.10 a couple weeks back after that $10 Star Wars coupon and a TRU Rewards VISA certificate. That's about what it's worth.

56
Got me a $15 battlepack today.

No healthcare, non-competitive salaries, limiting of hours, spur-of-the-moment schedule changes, etc. It's pretty much acknowledged as one of the worst employers to work for.

58
I was referring to my absence of concern for Wal-Mart's bottom line. Its stores are, for the most part, disaster areas. They treat employees like crud. I'm sure Wal-Mart still does fine when it screws up and figures are erroneously sold for $4. Bulk mentality I'm sure.

Does anyone know or think Walmart still makes a profit when they let a vintage figure go for $4?

Does anyone care?
