Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases

I picked up the Phantom Shuttle today.  I saw at least 2 of each of the new Rebels vehicles when I was in the store.  Unfortunately there wasn't the sweetheart deal of $7 and change that was reported on YF.  :(

What's all this about the $7 deal? Didn't see anything on their front page?

In case you didn't hear, 32 concept images from EVII leaked onto the web late last night. Very cool stuff - I was blown away when they hit my mailbox.


This has now been removed completely from their website. Way to go, Target...don't let anyone get your top secret exclusives.  ::)

Not sure if this is news, but I have been seeing these figs at Targets and WalMarts, usually near the trading card sections they keep near the registers.

Any Predators?

I have seen those reports too but all the stores around here have out is %^&*( bobbleheads...

I picked up all 3 "flashback" figures from Walgreen's today, first time I have seen them here. Daryl is the version from the motorcycle deluxe set, which had not been released single carded before. Michonne comes with new accessories, a walker-quarium with 2 pet heads. The RV Zombie appears to be more or less the same as the previous version.

Would be nice to see the next TV wave hit soon...

That was an unbelievably good premiere! FIVE GORY stars all the way!!!

So much going on:

The blood trough was a stroke of genius. I kept thinking to myself during that scene "Baseball is a TEAM sport!" LOL

Carol V Tasha Yar was great, I'll take Carol every time in that fight. Damn right let her get eaten!

SO GREAT to see them bash the Joker's head in first too. I didn't realize until TD aired that this was the same hippie kid with the lame girl from last season. Well played!

HTF do you even threaten to strangle a baby? Jesus, that guy was a POS...he deserved every face-crushing blow Tyreese rained down on him.

Really disappointed we did not get closure on %^&* Gareth though. I'm sure since he is getting his own action figure we have not seen the last of him either.

Getting the group more or less back together was great to see, esp Rick and Judith and Tyreese and Sasha. Aw, and Daryl even hugged Carol!

Yes, that was definitely Morgan at the end. Who is leaving the carved X though? The people that took Beth?


Also loved the parade of splatter and the detail given to the zombies this season, as Nicotero noted on TD, they're starting to decay and decompose more noticeably now. Seem a lot more skeletal.

Great stuff!

Barnes and Noble had a big new display stand up today with the various lines in there - BTTF, Escape From New York, Firefly, Nightmare Before Christmas, and for the first time I have seen on pegs - the Universal Monsters and Horror figures. It was hard to choose between those last two but I ended up going with the Monsters. Between 3 stores I was able to pick up 7/8 of the figures, but no one had the Invisible Man. :(

I'll probably go back and get the Horror figures soon enough, they were pretty damn cool too.

Late to the party, as I missed the initial airing, but caught up last night finally. I liked it...didn't love it, but mostly that was because I found Ezra's character to be really annoying. I'm tired of street smart punks. It would be refreshing to see them have a kid who actually acts like a kid for a change.

That aside, the action was pretty solid and I liked the rest of the characters, esp Hera and Sabine. It will be a crime if we don't get an unmasked version of her in the toy line. I loved all the vehicles, the AT-DP and proto-speeder bikes, etc, the Ghost was really cool as expected (love the interior cockpit done in the Falcon motif) and that new Imperial Transport is begging to be made.

I do find the animation style less appealing than Clone Wars, mostly in the realization of the human characters. The backgrounds and other elements looked great though. (Ugh, terrible job on the Wookies though, IMO, they looked like they were made of chocolate)

Also agree this is more of a true kiddie tenor than the darker stuff from the Clone Wars. I don't have a problem with that, as long as it doesn't get too silly or nonsensical.

Overall, a very worthy effort and I look forward to seeing where they go from here out!

The highly anticipated sixth and final season of the Emmy Award-winning series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the 13-episode season dubbed "The Lost Missions." In these eagerly anticipated episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed. An intrepid clone trooper discovers a shocking secret, Anakin Skywalker's closest relationship is tested to its limits, and what Master Yoda discovers while investigating the disappearance of a Jedi could forever change the balance of power in the galaxy.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has today announced that on November 11th they will release Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Lost Missions: Season 6 on DVD (3 discs, $39.99 SRP) and high-def Blu-ray Disc (2 discs, $45.99 SRP). Each will run approximately 390 minutes long, and come with bonus material (the details of which have not been revealed yet, but stay tuned!).

Didn't see this posted here, but great news to get confirmation on this set!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014

Yeah, I've been so busy at work this week I haven't had time to catch up on all the news, but it does some like a pretty fair showing.

I still think it's a little odd we haven't gotten a glimpse of 6" 3PO, seeing as how he has been rumored for so long. Makes me wonder if they are struggling with the VAC metal apps or something.

No new Rebels or Clone Wars figures teased for this line?  ???

I called every TRU within 50 miles of here and NONE of them had a single Jedi Reveal battlepack. That is pathetic.

Watch them show up right after the BOGO sale goes off.  ::)

Those all look nice, really want to see That new Leia head sculpt up close, looks vastly superior to the last one.

I saw the new Target Multi-Figure Pack for the 12" line...Ezra, Kanan, Inquisitor, and then like 3 totally random dudes - Darth Vader, Shadow Stormtrooper and some random Clone Trooper.

I take it those last 3 don't really have anything to do with the Rebels show and were just arbitrary pack-ins?

I couldn't pull the trigger, but it was sort of tempting. (On sale for $47)
