Yeah, don't bother sending anyone down to check the wreckage or anything. Jedis R stupid.

It seems odd to me that we'll now have 3 distinct Banes in the line, especially since the Deluxe version would work best for sitting in the upcoming Xanadu Blood. But I'll take that over another repack any day of the week.

Overall, I think this Wave is a somewhat inferior to the next two that are due up, but January/February should be slow months anyhow, so the timing is probably for the best. Anything new at that point will seem like a blessing.

Finally found a Target that had completed their endcap reset, and saw the exclusive BP's on the shelves for the first time. They had 4 of each, and I was just able to find one minty package of the Robonino set, which I promptly snagged.

Not sure about keeping one just for openers, will probably return my original which was slightly dinged.

However, I am now totally and completely 100% caught up every which way.  ;D

No more runs for me!

I gave these a close once over yesterday because I was really on the fence at one point about the Geonosian/Shaak Ti set, but man, she is one butt-ugly sculpt IMO. Just seems very crude and poorly assembled. I much prefer the TLC version earlier this year, and even the upcoming TCW version is breathtaking by comparison.

I think maybe that Rodian Jedi is the coolest of the lot...

CW39 Hondo Ohnaka (Re-Pack)
CW40 Obi-Wan Kenobi
CW41 Clone Trooper Hevy (Training Armor)
CW42 Cad Bane w/TODO-360
CW43 R7-A7

Still seeking confirmation of there is anything new about Obi-Wan or Cad Bane, suspect both are previously uncarded versions from the deluxe sets...

Very bummed that they have still not found a slot for the Cad Bane in Clone Armor figure.  :(

I'd be happy if he came as a pack-in with an individually carded deluxe Cad Bane figure with a soft goods coat.



Your wish is Hasbro's command, except for the soft goods cloak. Bane and Todo pack-in have both been confirmed as TCW41, part of the new wave following Quinlan, Cato, etc. (Courtesy of Sandtroopers)

Bane looks like the same articulated version that came with the Deluxe set.

Also in the wave are Hondo (re-pack), Obi-Wan (possibly a re-pack, maybe one from one of the Deluxe sets), and R7-A7, which I believe is new.

I've just stumbled across a few this week, one at a Jabba store and one at a non-Jabba store.  ???

Very happy to have this out of the way...no more trips to Walmart is always good.

Aside from the Shadows of the Malevolence packs, which I have still not seen, I am 100% caught up.  ;D

Ok, so much for that: scored all 3 Malevolence sets tonight at a different Walmart. Damn these are pricey, but I guess you have to factor in the price of the DVD as well.

I'd still like another Robonino BP, but I've yet to actually see any in the wild. The lone one I have came via DCPI.

Feels good to be caught up again.

I finally saw and scored Kit Fisto's Jedi Starfighter courtesy of the local Walmart. They had at least three out on the shelves, so I was able to nab a pristine box. Freakin' sweet.

Outstanding scoop, he does look realistic enough to "pass".

Next week....Aurra's got a different look. I smell a future repaint figure.

I noticed that too - and I would gladly purchase any repaints of this character they would like to make. Git r done Hasbro.

Glad to see they are headed back towards something remotely interesting next week. These last 2 episodes have been painfully dull.

The only thing missing from Friday night's episode was the cranky old Prime Minister complaining that he "would have gotten away with it too, if not for those meddling kids!"  ::)

I saw 2 of these again in my travels yesterday, so it is definitely shipping again...

After a long fruitless day of hunting the Target exclusive TCW battle packs, I finally just went the DCPI mind trick route and had my local store pull the only two they had in stock, oddly enough. (One of each)

Definitely prefer the Bounty Hunter set...Robonino is so worth the wait! The Clones are ok, but cool aliens always trump for me.

I never even did see the endcap reset anywhere outside of one place that didn't have any of the TCW stuff out.

I certainly hope not - I have not seen this yet myself. I was hoping that I would also find the DVD 2-packs and Kit Fisto's fighter this week to put myself "off the hunt" for a little while, but alas no such luck.

I hope the remaining WalMart exclusives aren't only going to be shipped to "Selected Stores" so I have to go through the same bullsh*t I had to go through just to get a Jabba.

Yeah, I am in the exact same boat...I hit about 6 different stores again today and no sign of this anywhere, nor the Malevolence packs. Closest thing I saw was a planogram sheet taped up at one Wally with 2 locations listed for SW Starfighter vehicle, but they had yet to start the reset so who knows.

What bugs me is the thing isn't even listed on their website anywhere yet, so you can't even see what stores it might be at or do site to store shipping or anything like that.

By contrast, Target has had their exclusives up on their site since last week I believe to coincide with the general release.
