Wow, I actually had to do research to figure out that inside joke.

Is that really his picture?

Oh snap, TRU rolled out the new front end display this morning! Always nice to see a commanding SW presence at the toy store.

This time they did not fail abysmally at stocking up with new product, thankfully. I saw a full case of TPM figures, multiple cases of new MH and TCW, the 4 new Class 1 sets, the 4 new Class 2 sets, the 4 new BP's, and even the Podracer exclusive set, hot off the truck.

I also saw the 2 new Walmart exclusive Dewback/Vulture Droid this mornign for the first time.

It's great to see all this new product, I just wish I cared about any of it. I already got my measly 5 TCW figures and the 1 battlepack this past week, so not much else out there for me right now. (#%*$ Mando Assault Transport!!!)

For those concerned about the new packaging, it is easier to find the CW items than I thought. There is a large CW# on the side of the bubble. If you angle yourself correctly you can scan the rows rather quickly.

That's true...if you know what to look for and have a discriminating eye, they're not that hard to spot. Sadly, I don't have much confidence that the store drones restocking the shelves have the knowledge or interest to keep them separate from MH.

I'm still really bent there is no longer any TCW tagline for the Battlepacks or Deluxe Sets though. There is literally no way to distinguish between Clone Wars and Vintage swag anymore. Which I'm sure is exactly what they want. I refuse to be "tricked" into buying non-animated stuff that is outside my focus though, so if it requires a greater level of individual effort to keep the two lines straight, so be it.

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 future...one 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 MH...no 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.

MTT FTW!

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

3 feet long?  :o

20 battledroids included?  :o

Wowzers.

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.
