FYI, you may have seen/heard that Hasbro put up the Republic Attack Dropship Deluxe Set on their website for order. (

BUYERS BEWARE! This is NOT the Attack Dropship, it is a listing for the Scuba Clone set which is clearly pictured. The item # listed is for the scuba set as well. Hasbro simply screwed the pooch and failed to catch their error.

Hope no one gets sucked in by the old bait and switch~

Wow, BBTS just put up pre-orders for Waves 2 and 3 today! Ouch!

Is this Wave 1 stuff going to linger at retail? Are they going to keep re-shipping or once it's gone is that it?

Picked up 2 Red Ninjas and 2 CC's after the local Target reset this morning. First time I have seen either of those on the pegs.

If only they kept Tatum and killed off that Wayans doosh instead. I'd probably go see the movie ten times.

As noted on our front page, it's for "All Star Wars Toys", not just basic figures.

That is not how it is being advertised here with the shelf signage, it indicates only figures, but good to know.

So many thoughts to share...

First, is the the first time in the history of the animated line we have had ONE new figure in a whole wave? I am thinking yes. That is REALLY sad.

Hasbro needs some remedial arithmetic. With Fox, that comes to 18 (EIGHTEEN) figures for 2012. 18 does not equal 19. Why did we keep getting pounded over the head with the 19 single carded figures mantra? And where is the single carded Cyborg Maul that has been rumored for so long? Was this just total BS? Does that mean Krell will be some kind of carded convention exclusive?

Thank GOD they are re-packing Anakin and Yoda, because those figures are just IMPOSSIBLE to find on the pegs right now.  ::)

Two-per case is great for Obi, Rex, and Fox, but why not the SBD and Wolffe too? Do they really think those figures are LESS in demand than Yoda or Anakin?

Estimated to arrive date is July 2012. Does this really mean they are not going to do any more new figures from July to January? I flat out REFUSE to believe that. They must be starting over again come the Fall. Or canceling the line outright. No way they can keep it on life support for six months, especially during the holiday season.

I find it curious that leaked imaged of Maul and the "nightsister" have already leaked but nary a whiff of Phase II Fox images? They are doing a helluva job keeping that under wraps. Not sure why, but they are.

Found the elusive Scuba Clone Class I set tonight at the Target near my home. This is the same one I had cleaned out of Wave 1 sets last week in the hopes of paving the way for new stock. Presto! I also picked up another Attack Recon Fighter.

So that's 3-for-3 now in product relocation paying dividends. Crazy.

On another weird note, the Class I sets rang up at a discount also. I got $8.50 off my order total, so I am thinking the BOGOHO applies to Deluxe Sets as well. This was not an advertised special that I could see. Still, two new deluxe sets for $26? Hell yes!

Now I just need that Dropship Class I set and Wave 3 and I am all caught up again. Progress!

I picked up the Scuba Clone set this evening and not surprisingly, share the sentiment of others I have seen posting online - the paint apps on the clone SUCK. BIG-TIME. It looks like some kind of crude custom, or Turkish bootleg.

I can't see how someone in quality control signed off on this monstrosity in good conscience. It obviously has to be the factory because they all seem to be this way, to varying degrees of suckitude.

The Recon Fighter was better, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for the Dropship set.

Took my Wave 2 purchases from Friday back to Target and had them price adjust for the BOGOHO sale going on. That put about $9.46 back in my pocket...not too shabby. While I was there I went ahead and liberated the rest of those Wave 2 carry-forwards to help keep things moving. Here's hoping they restock with a little Wave 3...

One Walmart near me just moved all the DTF BP's to the Clearance aisle, but they still ring up at full price.  ::)

Ugh, saw these tonight at Walmart for the first time. Line green suspenders Bane?  :-X

Saw them tonight at a Walmart that had just completed their reset...only $7.47 there. No Doc Ocks but I did see a lab coat-less and thus source-inaccurate Lizard which I have no interest in.

Was able to score another complete set of TCW Wave 2 earlier today at a different Target which I had also coincedentally cleared of figures the previous night. So that's 2 for 2.

I checked a few other Targets for comparison and they all had the same old junk up on the pegs.

The second Rex I got was as bad as the first, and I guess this discoloration is common to all the figures, like some type of half-assed weathering. I still think it looks cruddy. Will be offering up my spares to other local collectors over the next few days.

Uh, I think Indiana is actually going to take care of Miami right now.

I blame the media for making everyone think the Pacers had a shot and Wade was on his last legs. Neither of those things appear to be remotely true.

Just hope we get Boston/Heatles again because the prepubescent Sixers will just be happy to be there and not give them much of a fight.

I still remember seeing the trailer on TV and thinking it was some kind of lame-ass detective movie. Silly six year old me!

So glad the parents dragged me to see it in the theater. My life has never been the same since.
