The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars RC Republic Tank
« on: February 12, 2011, 07:28 PM »
I'm curious to see if the Republic tank is the current vehicle retooled or a new ship then.  That'll determine if I buy at this point.  I liked the Hailfire but I liked its design better.

From the pics I saw at Yakface, it appears to be a different sculpt, like the original version on steroids. The rear guns look much more impressive.

I wish they could have at least tweaked the paint job for the pack-in figure.

I saw them yesterday at TRU as well, so it might be worth checking them all.

It's a decent wave, but probably the least exciting of this year. It only gets better from here!

How deep are your pockets?

Deep enough to buy every single Clone Wars toy they have ever made, or ever will make.  ;D

I got my shipping confirmation on this today. Should be here early next week.

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...

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.

Maybe he is coming real soon... 


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)

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


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

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.

Where was an AT-AT for $12 at? 

Target, according to the reports I have read.
