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.

Temuera Morrison is a New Zealander and not Australian.

Same difference - unless you're from there.  ;D

Tonight - The Academy

Tired of epic space battles? Cool looking aliens? Action?

Wish they would spend more time on human kids getting into all kids of family friendly mischief?

Then tonight's snooze fest is for you!

Savage Oppress can't get here quick enough...

Yeah, I recall this from a Q&A a while back...glad to hear it may happen sooner rather than later.

I think this would have to be some kind of pack-in or Battle Pack figure. I can't recall if there's anyone else from that episode that hasn't been made yet though. The chick with the knife maybe?

McMetal, if no one else is saying it I will - you are a CW animal   ;D

Thanks bro, I am just trying to keep up with Pete! I think he has the crown after this week...

I just snagged one as well, but am determined to pick up a second for opening. This is my favorite vehicle they have done since the Octuptarra Droid. It should work great for display purposes...

Did I say "any day"?  ;D

An early lunch and trip across town to another TRU paid off - I scored both the AT-AP and Swamp Speeder in mint packages. Only one of each on the shelves, so probably wise not to have slept on this again. Done!

And as an added bonus, I got another free Nikto guard because they still had the sign up even though the promotion is apparently over where you get him free with any purchase over $30.

Taking a break for the rest of today to get ready for full tilt tomorrow hunting that elusive Kit Fisto's Starfighter and the Target exclusive BP's.

Does anyone know if the UPC from this guy would be acceptable for the mailaway promotions? I assume so, but wasn't sure since it is an exclusive.

Dude, I appreciates the heartfelt sympathy.  :-*

Not to worry, I will be posting about finding these any day now, and it will be all good.

Saw both on the shelves for the first time tonight. Target had done kind of a half-assed reset, none of the TCW exclusives were out, but they had the Vintage packaged vehicles and Big BP's.

Oh brother, I definitely jinxed myself with what I said earlier. Damn if this exact scenario did not play out tonight.

Our TRU normally gets new stock on Tuesdays, and I was there early yesterday morning and they had nothing. But as I'm leaving work today I suddenly remember that the trucks were coming in after hours now, not before, so new stock would not be out til Wednesday.

So of course I get there around 5:30pm and they had ALL the new vehicles, in mostly nice minty packages as well. I didn't have the cash on me and didn't want to charge them, so I figured I would come back a little later and snag what I wanted. The place is literally a mile from my house.

Anyway, long story short - I get back there by 7pm and the Swamp Speeder and AT-AP are gone, which are the very two I wanted most dearly. I literally had them in my hand...even stuck the AT-AP way back behind the older vehicles but to no avail.

It's completely my fault of course. I absolutely should have known better, and it was a half-assed effort on my part admittedly. But it still SUCKS, because I could have been off the hook with all of these and now I'll have to double my efforts on tracking them down.  >:(

Hey though, the Hyena Bomber is pretty cool and the AAT, well, it's got new paint.  :-\
