The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Wave 19 (aka Fall 2010 Wave 5)
« on: November 19, 2010, 09:12 AM »
Thanks, hunting around again for these today.

Not sure what will become of Jet...I just noticed that they actually revised the numbering for this wave. Jet was supposed to be CW36, but now Quinlan Vos has that number.

This strikes me as odd because they did not renumber the TVC wave missing Yoda or Wedge.

Maybe we'll see him in the eventual wave with Cad Bane in Clone Armor.  ::)

Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em...have been waiting for a non-zombie Geonosian to be come out. I wonder if/how this will differ from the version in the TRU exclusive set recently announced.

Special Ops dude looks a lot like the missing Comm. Jet...hmm.

Got mine today as well...pretty much immaculate, even the outer box. Definitely looking for another to open now, provided I can scrape up some more UPC's.

What constitutes a "Star Wars playset"? Battlepacks? Vehicles? I notice they have a photo of the AT-AT. Is that included as well you think?

Hmmm...

Hey, I might be interested in one of these:

Sear Cantina/Early Bird Foot Peg $5 each

Does the $5 cover shipping too? I only need one...(I think)

Thanks!

Are the POP's from the figures in this wave eligible for the various mailaway promotions? (Bric and Boba) The numbers do not seem to match up to the ones listed on the forms. Are only Vintage figs from the first wave eligible?

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.

Shadows of the Dark Side '10-'11 / Re: Walmart "New" TIE Bomber

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!
