The latest Narnia movie tanked big time.

Maybe people over the age of 13 realized this was just a thinly veiled Christian parable and churchy God stuff is not nearly as cool or interesting as actual sword and sorcery/fantasy stuff?

Any religiousy type junk like that can be the kiss of death for the fanboy set.

Wave 5 Found?

Says they were found in Orlando, and no receipt is pictured. Sounds kinda sketchy.

Just saw that, photo has been added now too. I don't think the lack of a receipt is necessarily a big deal, but we should know for sure in the next few days if other reports start popping up.

Too bad we don't have any JD peeps in FL.

These are shipping from Hasbro US now too-- got my case from Entertainment Earth on Friday.  No Hondo, though.  Bane's pretty impressive, but take note: the only articulation on Todo is his head, no matter how the arms look.

Good to know, I see SWS has 'em now too, but only by the case - for $94.99 I can wait.

Hoping to see retail reports on these in another week or two...

Has anyone gotten one of these in the mail lately?  I sent for mine in the Fall and haven't heard many/any deliveries since early November I don't think...

Nope, I'm still waiting on the one I ordered in November as well. The check was cashed long ago too.

I guess in the absence of any update postcard, they're just working on a new batch.

It was Ok. I liked Clancy Brown. It felt like kind of a letdown after last week though.

Wow, those Zabrak dudes are some real pussies. AHCHOO! Oops, I must be allergic to EMASCULATION.

Grow a pair, boys!

And what, did the Jedi Council look for the puniest, most pathetic Jedi to guard that all important Temple? Those guys caved in quicker than the French!

Why no scenes from next week? Is two new episodes in a row their limit? That 3 week break over Christmas wasn't enough?

Am I the only one who things she is a dead ringer for Kate Blanchett?

Too funny...I started a long post in this thread last week and then deleted it because it sounded too crankypants.

I HATE what this show has become...it has dropped off steeply from the first couple of seasons. If you go back and watch that first year, and then watch one from this season it is like night and day.

Dwight was much more entertaining as an abused dweeb than as a diabolical, agressive jerk.

Jim used to be the smart one that never got punked. Now he's as stupid as the rest of them.

You hardly get anything with the supporting cast anymore too - where's my Creed jokes?

The Andy/Gabe/Erin thing has drawn on agonizingly slow. And why  is everyone suddenly gay? First Oscar, then Gabe, and now HRG. (The Senator dude from Heroes) And yeah, I know Gabe has not officially been outed but this has been a running gag for some time. (Dressed up as Lady Gaga, the passive aggressive naked man at his gym comment, etc)

I dearly wish they would yank this show as it has been DOA for some time now.

And I think the new Boss has to be Timothy Olyphant, no way that guy comes in to do two random guest episodes out of the blue and then disappears forever.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Republic Attack Shuttle
« on: January 15, 2011, 08:19 PM »
Boo!  >:(

It's a flying taxi cab...how is that exciting? Ok, it's an armored flying taxi cab with guns. Still does nothing for me.

A shuttle is a means of conveyance for passengers. It's not a freaking assault vehicle. No matter how many bells and whistles they give this thing, it's a disappointing choice, IMO. The Bounty Hunter Assault ship could have been so much cooler.

I guess we can officially shovel dirt on the Twilight.

The funniest thing to me is how they refer to it in the press release as "the signature vehicle from the animated series" - I bet if you added up every second of screen time this thing has it would pale in comparison to any number of other vehicles. (Like the Republic Heavy Cruisers for example) I can't even recall a single episode where these were featured prominently.

That said, if this is their choice, I hope they do a good job with it, and I'll certainly buy it anyway. I just feel it lacks "zazz".

According to Sandtroopers, someone picked up BARC with Jesse at a Walmart.

Damn, it had to be Walmart. Just when I thought I was out...

Back to the Hunt!

What a great week for new images...I only hope we see these 2 guys on the pegs before the end of this month.

Is Cad Bane's Man-Purse a new accessory? I can't recall...

Just awesomeness.

So I'm guessing TCW 44-47 will be Wave 2 and TCW 48-52 will be Wave 3. Nine all new figures, gotta love that.

I'm really digging Barriss, El-Les, and the Aqua Droid. Ahsoka and Lock are looking pretty spiffy too.

I still want Jet though!

If the CW line were in this look, oh my God.

Where's the vomiting emoticon when you need it?   :-X

I loves the true vintage stuff, I loves the TCW stuff. But I don't want some weird mash-up of the two.

Think how messed up all those pegs would get!

Can anyone make out the numbering for Barriss, Ob-Wan, Hevy or El-Les? I can almost squint and see Barriss', but I'm giving myself a migraine.

I'm fine with it, we have at least 4 around here, including one right across the street from where I work, and they all got good stock of Jodo, although it took awhile for him to show up here compared to other cities. I'll be happy to help people out too if they need it.

Looks like there is no numbering on the figure, which makes perfect sense considering it is an exclusive. I would love to see a shot of the cardback if possible though.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases
« on: January 12, 2011, 03:28 PM »
Walked into Toys R Us today and it was like the Land that Time Forgot...not only did they have shelves filled with Y-Wings (not marked as clearance, but who knows) but they also had a full case of the last red/white BP's from a year ago! (Holocron Heist, Jedi Showdown, etc)

This stuns me not only because of how old they are, but because this is the only time I have ever seen those on the shelves around here. I had to order mine off HTS. Crazy.

I wonder if they just found a box in the back or someone is clearing out the local warehouse.

Also of note: Walmart has a new planogram reset: with NO LEGENDS figures! That blew my mind too. They have 1 row for TCW (4 pegs) and 1 row for TVC (4 pegs) and that's IT. There were no Legends figures to be seen anywhere. I have to say, I didn't miss them. I wonder if this is just a temporary deal or what.
