Thanks again for the info, Smash, That really helped me out. I dug around and saw that they threw the new TCW Jedi Turbo Speeder up as well, so I bit on that one immediately. I'm psyched to have this months before it shows up in stores.

This is In Stock and available to order now from Hasbro Toy Shop!  ;D

I ordered one immediately, came to $34.71 with tax, shipping, etc. Wish I had a valid promo code but oh well.

I'm paying $10 over MSRP, but I just don't feel like waiting til late spring on this thing. Considering I bought the Droid Gunship and Tri-Fighter back in December and they have yet to show up at retail, I think it's a good call.

Even better if the thing actually shows up in pristine shape - I won't even have to exchange it.

HTS is adding these to their site for....   $8.99 a pop....    :-X   So far the have the Senate Guard, the Droid, and Kit.

I think this price might be where I start drawing the line from ordering from HTS.    :(

Interesting, I was just on there this morning and didn't see 'em in the "New to hasbro" section, but I'm definitely checking back now. They had plenty of THOR swag though...

Thanks!

Seems a little quiet the past few days in advance of Toy Fair this weekend. No new leaks, no rumor reports, etc.

When should we expect the news to start breaking? Hasbro does their presentation Saturday, right?

"Give back the bunny, Lenny"  ;D

They are frigging roaring out of the gate this year. I can't believe I missed last week's episode.

That episode had everything - Carol/Cheryl, Pam, the Doctor, Woodhouse, pure gold.

WTF is Maggie Wheeler though?

Well, he must do something pretty spectaular to leapfrog over Admiral Yularen, who is still alive as of ANH. If he goes from Captain to Grand Moff, dude must have done something besides kiss-ass. I would hope the TCW arc explores that and shows why he is able to ascend ranks so rapidly in the coming years.

2722
Maybe he is coming real soon... 

Whaa?!?!

Complete awesomeness!!!

TVC or not, they HAVE to do an animated Tarkin. Heck, if they can double-dip for Barriss, they could support Tarkins in two lines as well.

Thanks for that news!

Allow me to fire the opening salvo.  ;D

This is great for trawling out much needed figures from Droids, Ewoks, and the Holiday Special.

But do they really need all those slots for D-list schmoes from the comics, novels, and video games?  :P

(runs for cover)

2724
Of course, 2012 makes sense, as this is clearly one of the signs of the Apocalypse.

ABOMINATIONS BEFORE GOD!!! >:( >:( >:(

Is there nothing they won't defile for the sake of the almighty dollar?

2725
And when the heck is HTS going to throw some new SW stuff up for sale?

Co-sign. WTF? They're a wave behind on TCW, 2 waves behind on TVC...there hasn't been a new SW listing since the holidays.

They're like the "Toy R Us" of online stores.

I still don't understand how one dude found the BARC SPeeder w/Jesse a month ago at Wal-Mart and there have been 0 other reported sightings reported anywhere on the Internets since then. I see a buttload of the other Deluxe sets around town with the new promo sticker too.

I saw someone asked about this in the RS forums and no one has responded there yet either. I guess there is next to no interest in that set. Even Hasbro has never acknowledged its existence officially.

2727
Where was an AT-AT for $12 at? 

Target, according to the reports I have read.

I think they just missed THE PERFECT solution for writing her out of the story for good while not traumatizing the kids.

It's so simple, it's pure genius:

She should have elected to stay on Mortis to take the place of the Daughter.

I literally got up and shouted it while watching last week's episode, it became so apparent. She serves a greater purpose, they don't have to kill her off, and they have a perfectly satisfactory explanation for why she is not only unseen but never even mentioned in ROTS.

Of course, they would never go for this because it would mean taking her off the show for the rest of the run, which I could easily stand, but they do have the perfect out here.

Well, they have already said there will not be a Clone Wars Mail-In offer for this year, so that's what I really wanted. (Ziro!)

I also think the Boba Fett packaging criticism was completely deserved. As a brand, Hasbro is reponsible for anything and everything related to their internal promotions. They get final say over design, packaging, everything. They did not have that issue with previous mail-away promotions, and it seems apparent they tried to skate by with a cheaper, less reliable alternative and got burned. (They had to know what would happen when these things hit the mass media mail sorters)

I do give them props for correcting the issue.

I am hoping we don't see this ship "transform" on the show in order to give the toy more "credibility"

Funny, I was just thinking the exact opposite. This would be easier to stomach if the damn thing actually did any of that stuff in the show.

As it is now, it just seems kind of like a cheesy reach.
