The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: CW Separatist Droid Gunship

I had to pick mine up from the Post Office this morning since I was not at home to accept delivery Saturday. It was pretty well packed too, same as the Tri-Fighter, but the box inside was not minty, one corner had some unacceptable wrinkling that will necessitate an echange when this hits retail sometime next year. I'm sure the contents are fine, but I'm more and more attentive to packaging defects nowadays so that's an issue for me.

OR I could simply keep this as an opener.  ;D

It's pretty tempting as this is probably my favorite vehicle behind the Swamp Speeder and Octuptarra Droid.

So did anyone else watch last night? I was really disappointed...i don't think I even laughed one time. A whole hour too...that's pretty weak. Seems like they just completely ran out of gas on this one.

The most interesting thing to me from the whole episode was the scene with Anakin and Palps discussing how he had gotten disfigured. It never even occured to me that this was attributable to Mace Windu reflecting the energy back at him during their fight. I always assumed he just got disfigured from simply channeling all that Dark Side energy through his frail and aging body. I need to go back and watch that scene again I guess.

The Boba Fett stuff just seemed silly.

I just scored my third Ewok Wagon last night. I really only needed the seat and ladder, but the bidding was so low on this one I felt compared to jump in and take a stab at it. I think I ended up snagging the whole thing for $66 plus $15 shipping. Having watched the eBay prices on these things for over a year, that is pretty damn awesome, especially for a Wagon that is complete with no wear and tear or breakage.

So now I have no use for my other 2 incomplete sets, one of which is in very good shape. Looks like I'll be putting these back on the market....

Vintage AT-AT and I'm more or less done.  ;D

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 19 (aka Fall 2010 Wave 5)

Found some of these at a Wal Mart in Minnesota, but the system wasn't recognizing them. Finally got a set, but it was a pain.

This was the case weeks ago when I bought mine too, and now that I have doubles/triples I have started returning a few and run into the same issue. Weird. They all rang up fine at TRU, so I assume it must be some sort of Wally gaffe.

I've seen a healthy supply of this wave recently, which is great - even the Cato "helmeted" variant.  ::)

This wave still leaves me limp but moreso because the previous two waves were such knockouts. I am very curious to see the next few after this...guess we will have to wait until ToyFair.

I believe from the outset they have planned around a five season run, so two more to come after this one.

Trailer was pretty cool...I can never really tell what is going on in those things because of the editing and that one was particularly dark.

Looks like we'll be seeing a lot of Felucia again...wonder if they'll show any of those weird natives?

I think they really need to be careful about expanding the Sith line-up because every new person added just takes them further and further away from the Law of 2, or whatever it is called. They're gonna be up to what, 5 or 6 now? That's TOO MANY, Sidious! You of all people should know better. You can't have all these Sith running amuck all over the place. They're still trying to keep that stuff under wraps from the Jedi after all.

Got my Droid Tri-Fighter in the mail today from HTS, well packed and in mostly minty shape. This thing is awesome - I had no idea it came with deployable Buzz Droids!

Received shipping confirmation on my HMP Gunship also...should be here in a couple of days.

And that would be it for 2010!

Gunship just got dropped off at my desk.  Happy to report that I was wrong and it's actually in a shipping box with packing materials and it's in minty shape.   8)

WHEW! My Tri-Fighter should be arriving today as well so this is a major relief to hear.

I also got shipping confirmation on the HMP Gunship, so my victory is complete.  8)

Awesome, glad you got the hook-up, G.

Saw another Vos and Undead Geonosian on the pegs at the local Walmart after work. It was really hard not to buy both on the spot, even having 2 of each already.

I wasn't actually even there to toy shop, but old habits die hard.

For anyone interested, this is back in stock now at HTS!  ;D

Sold out again already!  :D

Pretty sure I got my order in just in time, but I'll still feel better when I get the shipping confirmation.

B-2-G-1 sale at K-Mart...  $6 figures when you break it down, so good luck.

Ok, stupid question time: it has to be 3 of the same thing right? Like I can't buy 2 deluxe vehicle sets and get a free battlepack, correct?

Scored the HMP Droid Gunship off HTS this morning...it must have just been updated as In Stock because it was not listed as such last night. Free shipping was still in effect, as was the SW2010 code, so it can be yours for less than $24.  ;D

My Tri-Fighter should be here today as well, so that's 2 vehicles I won't have to sweat tracking down at retail.

Thinking now that we will not see BARC with Jesse until 2011, so looks like I am done for the year!

Come on, Toy Fair!

I was majorly bummed about missing this last week, so it is an awesome stroke of luck that they got more before X-Mas. Free shipping still applies, and the SW2010 code is still good as well.

I got mine for $23.61 total, which is cheaper than I'd ever find one at any store, provided this vehicle was actually shipping to brick and mortars, which it is not.

Woot!
