The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 18 (aka Fall 2010 Wave 4)

I've now cracked open Shaak Ti and Embo and they are easily two of the best figures ever in this line, IMO. The paint apps, articulation, sculpting, etc are all top notch. I don't even care if Shaak Ti has eyebrows.  ::)

If I had any misgivings at all, and these are a stretch, Shaak Ti doesn't seem terribly posable with all those robes on. And Embo is a wee bit top-heavy and the hat detaches a little too easily, but those are minor details.

I love that freakin' Bowcaster too!

What this I'm hearing about Commander Jet not shipping with this wave?

Jeff - any details? I saw the blurb on HH as well as some comments from various fan forums.

Would be a shame, he looked sharp.

None of the TIE Bombers are showing up around here at all, but there are plenty of Jabbas to be had. Go figure.  ::)

JACK - by Droid Gunship do you mean the HMP? Where did you stumble across that? Or was it part of an online order?

Lucked out again at lunch and found more remnants of TCW Wave 4 on the pegs at a Target I just hit yesterday. They only had two figures left, but unbelievably, one was Embo.  ;D I literally swore out loud on the aisle I was so surprised.

So at this point I am all good on openers and can take a measured approach on Wave 5. No signs of that so far. I don't think there's anything I need openers of there, but maybe a spare Cato.

Saw that too...I honestly don't see any difference in Anakin's costume, but whateves. Wish they had shown Asajj 2.0 as well.

Are Ahsoka's lightsabers the same length or is there one long one and one short one? That would be kinda cool if they were really different lengths.

On a related note, that WIRED article about this topic that RS has linked on their front page is utterly asinine. There is nothing remotely inappropriate about Ahsoka's current costume, no one thinks that tube top is too sexy or revealing. She's like 14 for cripe's sake! If you're getting aroused by THAT, the problem is on you, not the animators.

I found this at Target again yesterday along with the Hyena Bomber.  I decided to grab them both this time and I can/will work some receipt magic later if it is worth it.

Yeah, I had the same idea..I snagged all 4 to return the pricier ones I got at TRU, only to get home and check my receipts and realize I got the first 2 for 22.99 each courtesy of some sale or discount type thing TRU was running at the time. I did return the 2 I bought later at full price. Now I have to take one of these things back to the Target and return that too.

I'm keeping the extra Swamp Speeder...my loose figs need a cool ride.  ;D

Got my Death Star playset in the mail yesterday, even better condition than I had hoped for...nothing broken at all, except a small piece off the cannon, which I have an extra of anyway.

Looks like all I am missing is that pesky rope.

Getting closer!

I've never felt anywhere near the excitement for any of the films as I have waiting for the new books back in the day. That was a freakin' EVENT. I was so stoked when this installment was finally published. Now that the movie is here? Meh.

I haven't even seen the last 2-3 because I got so bitter over how much they were leaving out from the books. (Still disgruntled about SPEW)

That said, I am making an effort to catch up because some of the later stuff I am very curious to see play out on the big screen.

Still riding the good mojo...found another case of TCW Wave 4 today at lunch, minus Embo.  :(

I did score my Shaak Ti for openers though. Looking forward to tearing into her tonight. (That did not sound right)

Also saw the Wave 2 TCW vehicles for the first time at the same Target where I bagged Shaak Ti. I went ahead and bought all 4 so I could return those overpriced ones I bought at TRU a few weeks back. Although I am very tempted to keep the Swamp Speeder and crack that open too. We'll see.

No sign of TCW Wave 5, but I plan to snoop around a little more tonight and maybe find another Embo to boot.

Shocked to read this wave has been spotted already at Walmart! (courtesy RS)

Loving that new figures are out, but I kinda hate the timing...don't like when the waves are right on top of each other like this. I only just found Wave 4 yesterday!

Not only is it a sudden drain on the $$$, it means we'll have no new figures to look forward to in December.  :(

Whew, definitely made the right call on THAT one.  ;D

Scored this whole wave this morning at Target, all on minty cards, and best of all - only $6 each!

That's right, $31.50 for all 5 figures, including tax. You can't beat that with a stick, especially for figures of this quality.

I had no idea they had even dropped to $6 for TCW figs, must be a recent thing.

This is easily the best wave since the Hondo/Aayla wave. I dig it every bit as much as I thought I would, I only wish I could crack a few open but I'll have to wait until I see more.

Embo and Shaak Ti tie for winners - both came out stunningly. The Boba likeness is spot on, probably the best they have done outside of Pre Vizsla. Astromechs don't thrill me so much, but I love the carded Mandalorian.

They've really set the bar high now for this line, I can't wait to see what they come up with for next year. (Sugi? Seripas?)

Victory is Mine!

Scored the complete TCW Wave Four this morning at Target, only 1 case out, but that's fine for now. I can wait a little on my openers.

I'll share my praise in the dedicated thread, but I am pretty much psyched beyond belief with these guys.

And it's awesome being all caught up again!

The rest of this year should be very manageable for the TCW line, only 1 more wave of figures, 2 mid-size vehicles, and a battlepack. I am completely good with that...

Forget Ahsoka, I just want to see these two get killed, since they do not "exist" as of ROTS:

1) Asajj Ventress

2) Cad Bane
