The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases

Ugh, slim pickings on clearance swag. All I found were a few Cad Bane's Escape and Assault on Geonosis BP's, 1 Hunt for Grievous BP, an AAT, and a smattering of El-Les, Obi-Wan, and SBD's.

No sign at all anywhere of any clearanced Deluxe sets, which is what I was really hoping to see.

I did bite on the  Cad Bane BP since that is a figure I've wanted loose for awhile now.

Saw Chronicle today.  It was fantastic.

For some reason, I really want to see this too. I'm glad to hear it delivered. Might try to check that out tonight.

Confirmed SOTDS figures are now priced down to $3.94 at Targets around town. I thought about picking up a Hevy for that price but ultimately passed. Will hit a few more up tonight and see if I can find a better selection. Also hoping to find a Defend Kamino BP for $10...or maybe an HMP for $12.

Even more reason for me to pick up the Criterion blu-ray of Anatomy of a Murder later this month.

Don't forget Road House!

 :D

Jesse James once shot a man for snoring too loud. At least according to the Time Life books TV commercial burned into my brain from childhood. LOL.

Dang, derivative or not that was freaking sweet. Like a SW/Cube mash-up...mmm.

So for the last five we got Embo, Cad Bane, and Rako, and I think Derrown and Twazzi?

Those last three would all make kick-ass action figures.

Or better yet, a Geonosis style series of 2-packs, six total with all 12 bounty hunters. Plus maybe throw in a Morallo Eval/Dooku set and we're good to go.

FOUR STARS tonight, pretty much good from start to finish for me.  :)

John Carter, Warlord of Mars predates all of that crap by at least a generation.

It was also a comic book in the 70's which was COMPLETELY AWESOME.

Maybe Disney will ruin it, but there is no denying the STRONG GEEK-FU of the original source material.

I think it is all nineteen.  I am still amazed at this, but maybe this is to get them until the holiday time.  Gotta hope for some exclusives.

Anakin Skywalker
Clone Trooper (Phase II)
Savage Opress (shirtless)
Cad Bane w/TODO 360
Yoda
Plo Koon (Cold Weather Gear)
Clone Commander Cody
Mace Windu
Chewbacca
Aqua Droid
CW? Ahsoka Scuba Gear
CW? Aayla Secura
CW? Obi-Wan Kenobi
CW? Clone Commando Boss
CW? Captain Rex
CW? Commander Wolffe (Phase II)
CW? Commander Fox
CW? Cyborg Maul
CW? Super Battle Droid

Yep, you're right...I missed the SBD in my count. That is 19 individually carded figures alright. Krell is totally MIA.

I can't see them throwing him into a BP after all the bad noise they made about no newly tooled figures in those things.

Mailaway?!?!  :D

LOL, that's like 5 years of Clone Wars figures at the rate they are going now...

Krell is not on those lists - wasn't he confirmed?

Yes, all of those figures only add up to 18, so we are still one short for individually carded releases.

My theory is that Krell is going to come packaged ala Kul Teska as some kind of store exclusive.

384191860 SW CW COMMANDER FOX
384211860 SW CW CYBORG DARTH MAUL

As far as I can tell, the only figure we know FOR SURE that is a new reveal on there is the Cyborg Maul. A lot of people are speculating that Wolffe and Fox are Phase II but Fox is not marked as S4 so it could be a straight re-pack of his previous version.

If Wolffe and Fox are the Phase II versions, there's your figure line-up for 2012. That would fill the last of the open slots.

I'll still believe it when I see it, but if that holds true, major suckitude. I wanted my Umbaran Soldier real bad.  >:(

Took a quick pass by Target to survey the TCW clearance offerings. No Deluxe vehicles to be found, but the BP's were marked down to $9.98 and the Shuttle was down to $39.98.

No sign of clearance prices on the old SOTDS figures, but I didn't scan them to confirm either.

Man, that poster jpg over at JTA is hella cool. Wish it made for a better screen saver. (too big for good res)

Ultimately though, another cruel tease because I already want ALL of those figures and at best we might get a Rako Hardeen and Cad Bane with new hat.  ::)

McMetal - that TRU store either wildly over-ordered or massively undersold the majority of these sets...I think it was just a rouge TRU.  See my pic in this thread from over a year ago.  That store still had just about as many sets from then just last month before they started the clearance.

Thanks man...that was my initial suspicion as well, I just didn't think individual stores were empowered to do that.

It's sad really, this would have sold through rapidly at a decent clearance price like the shuttle.

So...I gather some of the Minnesota peeps were finding these for $30 at their local TRU.

Has ANYONE else seen this price locally at all? I figured this would be all over the fan sites but I've yet to hear a single report outside of JD.

I didn't think TRU could do single-store clearances on exclusives? Doesn't that come down straight from corporate? Or do they have leeway some places?

I would KILL to pick up a set on the cheap like this. So far nothing around here though.
