The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases

Wowzers! Scored both Cold Weather Gear Anakin and Obi-Wan at a Target that has not put up any 2010 Star Wars products at all. If I remember correctly, I saw Captain Rex, Commander Cody, Cad Bane, Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Cold Weather Anakin and Obi-Wan, all featuring Nahdarr stickers. Pleasantly surprised, except I was puzzled why only Cold Weather Anakin from TCW 2010 Wave 2 was present on the shelves, without a Sidious or Talz in sight. I wouldn't expect CWG Anakin to be the last on the shelves.

Because those snow figures are part of a new case assortment...the other figures from the original wave are not. Sucks, because I really want a Magnaguard for openers and I am continually denied.

Back up for pre-order over at BriansToys

Fixed that for ya.  ;)

Easy pass for the Variant hounds like myself, not even a whiff of a deco change.

So I guess they pretty much HAVE to release Waves 1 and 2 together. I don't even see the point in having a Wave 2 for that matter...if you can't work even 1 new figure into the assortment, just roll them up into Wave 1.

I just hope Hasbro has their reps culling the old blue/white TCW packages from the shelves before they get re-stocked after the launch. The last thing we need is 3 different packaging varieties with the same pegwarming figures.

According to RS, TCW12-19 are all re-packs. (The photos seem to confirm this numbering as well) So hopefully the first 3 Fall Waves will be 4 figures apiece, mostly new stuff.

I know Wave 2 was rumored to be all repacks too, but I can't remember what thread that was in...

Thanks a lot, this is a big help in updating my personal wantlist for the relaunch.

How about forgetting about the love interest and showing more ******* robots beating the piss out of each other.

How about more robots beating the piss out of Meghan Fox?

I'd pay $9 for that.

Wasn't the Donkey wheel the thing that Jacob's brother was building to get off the island? Did Jacob finish the project for his brother?

Yes, it's unclear who finished it though. If I recall, it was actually Esau (Man In Black) who advised John to turn the wheel a few seasons back, albeit disguised as Jack's Dad. You have to think at least Jacob knew about it...

I saw another ad last night for the finale that clearly showed the wheel being turned, so I'm thinking we'll see it again.

Nice photos, loving the new Interceptor deco.

I'm wondering about wave/case assortments for the vehicle line come August though.

At one point, the new tank was listed as Wave 1 - "early August", along with the Droid Gunship and Xanadu Blood. Then Toyfair came around and there was no mention of the Xanadu Blood or the HMP.

By my count, we have at least 5 new TCW vehicles coming this Fall, including the Swamp Speeder and Plo Koon's Starfighter, plus the ones listed above. I'm guessing these will be split into at least 2 waves, along with the obligatory repacks.

If anyone has more detailed info about the individual waves or tentaive schedule, I'd love to know.  ;D

Hmmm, maybe they'll revisit the Frozen Donkey Wheel?

I appreciate Chuck and I'm sure it's a good show, but I'm not inclined to jump in at this point. That thing is living on borrowed time anyway.

I did watch HIMYM once upon a time, but the $%@#& writers ruined it for me and I had to stop watching. One of the only shows I have ever consciously quit watching because I was so aggravated. "Slapsgiving" was awesome though.

24 has ruled my Mondays for as long as I can remember...going to be different.

Per Hasbro's standard for mail-away offers: "Your exclusive **** figures will be mailed to you approximately 6-8 weeks from receipt of your redemption request"

Yep, I know...they have 15 days left to comply with their own deadline in my case.

What they DON'T say is "If you fail to receive your figure after 8 weeks from the check being cashed, please contact our direct customer service hotline at xxx-xxx-xxxx and we will rectify the matter immediately".

That would be helpful, especially if their Fulfillment vendor is unreliable.

Finally sent away for my 2 last week and both checks were cashed today. 

Now....the wait.   :)

Good luck with the check was cashed April 9th and I haven't gotten anything yet. That's six weeks as of tomorrow. 8 is the limit. Wonder who I can complain to at that point?

Sorry, but that guy's art just plain SUCKS. He is NOT good. Nothing against him personally, but what I've seen of his work is complete garbage.

SO happy V is coming back...there are plenty of issues with that show but it has a lot of promise and is an easy way to kill an hour. Kind of the opposite of FlashForward, where every episode feels like an agonizing three hour prison sentence.

I mean, I like FF, but it's sort of a love/hate relationship. It's pretty inconsistent...the problem with having a show with multiple plotlines unfolding simultaneously is that some of them are inherently going to be more interesting  and so the pacing becomes very uneven over the course of a season. (see: Heroes)

I think FF would have been much better off focusing strictly on the uber-arc and eliminating all the worthless tangents with Cancer doctor, the whore wife, etc. That crap just dragged the show down terribly.

Overall though, the show was just not very enjoyable. I wanted to like it, but it always felt like more of an obligation than a treat to watch. The timeslot sucks too...that should have aired at 9pm or 10pm at least.

On the plus side, at least Baltar got another paying acting gig for awhile.
