The Vulture Droid sorta interests me as it is a straight repaint of the TCW version and could almost fit with that line.

Is the price on that same as the midsize assortment or higher? (Can guess, but there's always hope...)

They definitelly still use the log books, I filled out one last year. It was a joke. There is no way they can accurately measure the audience for a TV show using crap like this.

Any of you guys with 2012 reset Walmarts seeing peg space labelled for these?

I checked at 3 different Walmarts I hit today and none of them had any shelf or peg space labeled for these. It's possible they could tweak some things in the can only hope.

Someone's GOTTA corner Hasbro on this during Toy Fair, just to find out once and for all what's up.

She reminds me of a GI Joe.

I was thinking Halo, but yeah...

I must be the only person who liked the Force Unleashed game.

Finally tracked down the Republic Troopers BP @ Walmart this morning before heading in to work. YES!!!

It's pretty spiffy, can't say I would pick up a spare for opening though. Clones just don't do it for me that much.

Also saw 8 pegs full of new TVC or TCW yet there.

So I guess I'm pretty much caught up at this point. Still holding out hope I will run across a Scout Bomber or Mandalorian Assault Transport, but other than those long shots I guess I'm good til whenever.

Well, #4 better be Baby Boba and speeder, as we were promised earlier. I hate the thought of unproduced toys hanging out there in limbo.

Why all the UK eyewitness accounts but no pictures?

I know they try to be super militant about that stuff, but I seem to recall we got a lot of good shots of the AT-AT when they premiered that over there...

These things continue to haunt me...I can't imagine they would have been cancelled, with all the tooling costs incurred, DVD production, etc, but the extended delay is mystifying.

I think it's a very Q&A worthy question. Habsro could at least confirm whether the domestic versions of these things were actually produced or not. It's possible they made them and handed them off to Wally and have no clue beyond that.

I have not noticed peg space for these in the Walmarts that have reset near me, but I will be sure to check next time I go.


Props to JTA for breaking this story with some juicy details.

3 feet long?  :o

20 battledroids included?  :o

Kind of agree on Alcatraz, although I'm willing to give it the rest of this season to improve. Hurley's act is wearing thin, no doubt.

And someone remind me why they're NOT looking for the grandfather? They only care about SOME of the convicted inmates walking around? Not the ones who kill cops?  ::)

I hate getting distracted by poor writing, but it is becoming commonplace with this show.

Weirdness...hit up 3 different Walmarts today and saw the same thing at each one: a small smattering of TVC, no CW or MH/Legends, and no BP's - but two cases of the new deluxe sets sitting out untouched.

Hells yeah!

Phase II Clone Pilot?

Man, I have one that is driving me nuts the past few weeks: frigging static electricity!

I don't know what it is, but I have been plagued relentlessly lately with getting shocked when I get out of the car. I mean like, EVERY time. Maybe it's new shoes, dry weather, I don't know.

A couple of times it has actually hurt. I've taken to just kicking the car door closed with my foot. But even then, sometimes it still happens when I eventually touch something metal.

I never recall having this problem before, maybe I'm getting more conductive in my old age?

Love it! Except they'll never make one for the animated line, so more of a cruel tease than anything.  :(

I'm out...a really sucky season capped off by a ridiculously sucky Super Bowl. I already watched this game 3 years ago! B-O-R-I-N-G

San Fran vs Baltimore would have been WAY more entertaining.

I guess it seems fitting though, I'm so over all of the teams that are good right now and would really prefer to see a new crop of teams at the top of the heap for awhile.
