Zam was played by Leeanna Walsman...she is not Asian

Thanks, I was too lazy to Google her, so I made sure to note this was just my recollection. I haven't watched those movies since the DVD's first came out, and if I have no interest in watching them again really.

When Hasbro's stuff gets to be as expensive as Sideshow's stuff, I may be out.

Until then though, I'm not going anywhere.

It's funny, I have seen lots of online praise for the likeness of Zam, but my recollection from the film was that it was an Asian actress and that figure doesn't even look remotely Asian to me.

Good likeness of the Clawdite mug though.  ;D

Meh, they should resurrect "DRIVE" instead...there was a Nathan Filion vehicle with TONS of potential.  :D

I'll still stick with WM though for a while.  They seem to be sticking with MSRP's.

TVC $8.96 at WM now around here...

Some interesting news out of DewbackPatrol.com:

http://www.dewbackpatrol.com/ToyFairHasbroQA2011.html

"There will be multiple versions of Savage coming out with different outfits.  There will be multiple figures from the last two story arcs [The Night Sisters and The Mortis Trilogy]."

Hell yes.

I was thinking of a young Han, but older Han supposedly saves Chewie from Imperial slavery. But you never know with Lucas changing things here and there. I guess Chewie and Tarkin will be in the same arc.

Chewie is actually part of the 2 part finale season airing April 1st I believe. Tarkin is part of the new arc that begins tonight. Maybe he will show up as a semi-recurring character though, that would make sense.

I dabbled briefly with this line just to grab the Judge Dredd stuff, which was amazing. I really hope they offer up a few more of those in this latest carnation. Judge Anderson would be nice, and the rest of the "Death Judges".

Cousin Jeffrey must be devastated.  :P

Hmmm...Chewbacca? I think they need to be careful about dragging in too many of the OT/PT characters, they've kind of gone overboard this season. It's a nice touch, but like celebrity guest voices on the Simpsons, best if done infrequently.

Still, I'd buy an animated Chewie in a heartbeat. Ditto Tarkin.

Psyched for "The Citadel"!

The BARC w/Clone Trooper Jesse deluxe set was In Stock on EE yesterday for a few hours. By the time I was ready to place my order after work, they were gone again.  ::)

I now realize there is no longer any margin of error with this thing.

Got my second and final one yesterday...package arrived in pristine condition. Thanks Hasbro!

I'll miss the mail-away joy this year.

I'm still on board no matter what, but I would prefer not to see any more waves with 4 new mid-size vehicles like we got last year in the TCW line. That was a pricey pill to swallow.

At least with the Vintage line, it's mainly just figures for this year.

I hope Barriss Offee is really Articulated.

I think you might be disappointed, apparently she has no ankles.

Luckily this is not something I care about too much, but it does open the door for them to upgrade in the future.

I got this in the mail today from HTS. The package was freaking mint, much better condition than the Gunship or Tri-Fighter when they arrived.

I wish I could post a lot of details about what a sweet vehicle it is, because it does seem to have a lot of cool play functionality, but it's staying MISB.  ;D

I hear it has popped back up on HTS In Stock once or twice since the initial offering, so it might be worth keeping an eye out for.
