The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Figure Rumors/Speculation
« on: October 13, 2011, 09:57 PM »
Ugh, just spent the past 45 minutes trying to slog through all the new pics at SSG. Looks like at least 2 new TCW figures were on display @NYCC: a big-ass jetpack Cody and what looks to be a new basic clone trooper. Both are slated for JAN 2012. Guessing the will be the first new wave of next year, and possibly the first in the new packaging.

Yeah, the new packaging - S U C K S! They don't even identify the line as Clone Wars anymore on the package! The only way you can tell is by looking at the number on the SIDE of the card, apparently. Yeah, that won't be confusing.  ::)

It does appear that they are restarting the numbering with the packaging reset, as expected.

Both figures look pretty cool, although Cody is clearly top-heavy as hell with all that gear.

Hoping we see something else in terms of BP's, vehicles, or deluxe sets.

Wasn't there some Hasbro thing planned for 5-6pm today? Or is that tomorrow? Seems like some new stuff is starting to leak out already, Adam P had some good scoop on the new Naboo fighter.

It's just too weak for words, really. There's about 99 different ways that this sucks but I'm too weary of the whole thing anymore to even work up a good rant about it. It cheapens Obi-Wan's legacy; it defies all common sense and reasonable suspension of disbelief; it further reinforces the absurd trend that only good guys die on this show and villains just multiply, etc, etc.

It's just crass revisionism of the worst variety. Sorry that Lucas created such a cool character and then immediately killed him off, but that's the way the ball bounced. Deal with it. Need to pump the fanboy well for some love? Fine, delve into his backstory. Do some flashback shiite, whatever. But COME ON - dude was severed in two fing pieces! And dropped down an enormous nuclear silo or whatever that thing was. I mean , done. End of story.

Just stupid, stupid, stupid.

Wow, Wave 10 has officially hit here, and hit hard. I actually saw these at 4/4 Targets I visited over my lunch hour today. That's a really good spread.

It's always nice to see a fresh case on the pegs, so I was able to pick up another full set for the low low price of $7.99. This will allow me to recycle the remaining few I had snagged at $9.89.

Cheers to Target for getting in some new stuff. Jeers to Walmart for not doing the same.

Still no sign of the mini Y-Wing, which is odd because a number of the Targets have sold through those first 2 waves by now. I don't see much restock action on these around here.

I bet Adam Pawlus loved this episode, as he, like me, is a sucker for lost "DROIDS" episodes.

Kind of fun and mindless, but ultimately a bit of a waste. I feel like they spin their wheels sometime trying to make simple points. (IE: Clones are starting to turn bad)

The underground things were creepy and cool, but I'm too jaded to even enjoy that kind of stuff anymore because all I can think is, that would make a really cool toy and there is no way they will ever do it.  :(

I had a very classy post prepared that was something to the effect of "Suck it Yankees!" but then I decided that would only potentially inflame some hurt feelings.  :P

Really though, hard to argue that the best team didn't win, IMO. Detroit showed a lot of grit too, kind of a feelgood story.

Great game between the Brewers and Diamondbacks tonight. Hats off to both clubs for a great series effort.

I'm psyched. I've been watching progressively less TV the past few years so the few remaining shows I do keep up with are welcome returns.

Too bad they couldn't have timed the action figures to come out in advance of the new season. Pretty weak sauce, I have been jonesing for these hard all summer. Will they ever show up?

I'm fine with them doing an EU-inspired Nightsister in realistic style, although it seems like sort of an obscure choice. I just hope that doesn't preclude them from doing the ones from the toon in the animated line. There's plenty of room for Nightsisters in both lines.  ;D

I've yet to see a single one of these sold, they are not moving at all around here. I've waited this long I don't see any point in breaking down and paying full price when I know this thing is going to have to come down sooner or later. Otherwise these are going to be tying up a lot of precious toy real estate come holiday season.

I'm feeling $50 a lot more than $80.

Awesome Pete! Good scores.

When returning my extra Snow Koon today at Bizarro Target, I happened to check the pegs and saw they had put out ANOTHER case of Wave 10. Only one missing was shirtless Savage.

This makes at least 3 whole cases this store has put out where most of the others haven't even gotten in one yet. Not coincedentally this is the highest grossing store in the area. (Also explains their ballsy $2 price hike)

For people that printed the redemption form, did you just cut it out and fold it in half?

Yep, exactly what I did...

Another odd sighting tonight, a random Snow Koon at my neighborhood Target. Nothing else from the wave, just him. I went ahead and picked this up since it was "only" $7.99 and I am slowly trying to return and cycle through the figures I had to pay $9.89 for across town.

Saw 2 cases of the newest wave at TRU this morning. Seems like more of an "under-40" wave, as I hadn't even heard of half these guys.

Ultron looked pretty sharp, but Namor seemes way too muscly.
