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

Yeah, I came across remnants of 3 more cases of Wave 10 last night, surprisingly at a Walmart here. First time I have seen new TCW figures there in literally months. El-Les sure seems like it has some pegwarming potential. They really should have packed Season 3 Ahsoka in his place for this wave. Another missed opportunity.

I'm not really all that worried about finding an extra ultimately, but it is irritating me in the short term because it is keeping me on all these costly, time-consuming toy runs I would prefer to avoid. Like Pete, I have pretty much given up on ever seeing Wave 12, so Seripas was the only thing I have really been looking for.

Dressel, PM sent. I found you a carded Ponda Baba this morning so lmk what you think.

Think I'm going to take a forced hiatus for a while. The whole thing is just too frustrating right now, it would help to step away for a bit I think.

Maybe it was all the cold medicine I am taking, but last night's episode seemed pretty dull. Not bad, just not quite as gripping as the opener. It's pretty much a foregone conclusion the kid is going to live so all the drama seems sort of like wasted energy, plot-wise.

I fear they are going to spend at least another 2-3 episodes on Carl, the lost girl, and the people at the farm, and really I just want them to wrap it all up and get back on the road to Ft Benning. I feel like the show is best when they keep moving and are discovering new things/people.

I like all the farm people, esp the fat guy who I will always remember as the weird dude from the X-Files who could make his eyeballs vibrate. I like that they all seem pretty cool and there are no heels/foils to worry about in that group. I can't help but wonder how they seem to remain relatively unscathed out there though? They didn't seem to have a lot of weapons, defenses, etc. Kind of odd.

Not getting a good feeling about the black dude's long term prospects on this show. The crazy people always seem marked for death.

Next week looks awesome, Shane blasting zombies at the high school.

Yeah, Seripas is flat out impossible to find. I feel lucky to have even stumbled across one. I cannot help but find it irritating that JTA is carping about how they've seen "more Seripas' then they can count". I wished I lived in your magical universe, buddy.

Feast or famine, always feast or famine.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Recent Vintage Collection Purchases

Mega-load!

Spotted the Search for Luke Skywalker, new vinty-boxed Taun-Taun, and new vinty-boxed Landspeeder all at the same Target on an endcap. They had at least 2-3 of each, but regretfully I did not verify the pricing. (sorry)

Not interested in any of them but I did let another local guy know who is keen to pick these up so if I get more info I will post.

TV-9D9 / Re: The Clone Wars - Season Three Discussion Thread

So I've been to 3 different stores now to purchase the Season 3 set and noone carries the Blu-Ray version. WTF?

I know Best Buy will have it but I hate that store with a passion so there has to be a better brick and mortar option.

I'm tired of Sam Witwer. Also, Clancy Brown, Miguel Ferrer and a few others. Good for them getting work, but cartoon villains are starting to sound the same like they did in the 70's and 80's.

Padishah Emperor of the Known Universe Shaddam Corrino IV does voice-over work for cartoons?  :o

News to me. Great news!

I've got Comcast Bill,  and it looked great here.

Ditto, no issues with the HD down here.

JTA reports this has been found in the US now, so start looking.

Best part? It's $24.99, the exact same price as Luke's Taun-Taun.

So you pay the same for 1 Taun-Taun as you do for a Taun-Taun with 2 action figures thrown in.

That makes sense.  ::)

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Yeah, $200 for a loose Yak Face is ridiculous. Did it even come with the coin? I didn't even pay that much for my carded Sise Fromm.

It's frustrating when people have an inflated sense of worth for their items.

Yeah, anything over $20 would be ridiculous and might actually cause me to pass. The pic posted above said $16.99, so I'll probably hope for that but expect to pay $19.99.

$24.99 each, according to the Yak.

Just...wow.

In retrospect, I think it would have been a little more shocking if they hadn't spoiled it showing Rick running through the field with his wounded son in a promo for the new season that was airing WHILE THE SHOW WAS STILL ON.  ::) I hate it when shows do stuff like that.

But yeah, that was a great season opener, everything I enjoy about that series on display. Good action, quality splatter, strong writing. The blond chick's suicide rant was perfection, really well done. And we finally got The Herd! Hell yes!

Couple of thoughts:

1) Seems the dude on the RV would have noticed the zombies before they got quite THAT close. I mean, they were RIGHT up on them. I have to assume they didn't pass them on the road so I guess they just walked out of the woods.

2) Why weren't any zombies attracted to the sound of the recorded church bells? If that thing was on a timer it must have been going off for weeks. (Why did the church still have power even?)

3) I kinda missed the point of that scene with the older dude and the black guy talking about the "needs of the few" and the "magic radiator hose" or whatever. What was that? What exactly was the older dude implying?

Guess it would have been too easy for Rick to reveal what the doctor told him in the first 5 minutes. But if it's what we all think, why hasn't he told his wife yet?  ???

Capped off a perfect 24 hours, hitting for the complete toy cycle, a true rarity.  ;D

Picked up TVC Wave 9 yesterday afternoon at Walmart thanks to a local tip.

Picked up a nice carded Sise Fromm on eBay for the vintage collection last night.

And this morning I found a complete set of TCW Wave 11 at Target! Left all but Seripas who is simply incredible. I might need 3 of this guy, next to the Aqua Droid I think this is my all time favorite Clone Wars figure.

Hoping to round up another Seripas for openers today, but really, really psyched just to have seen these outside of TRU finally. Actually gives me hope I may one day see Wave 12 around here.
