Star Wars Rebels / Re: Recents Finds and/or Purchases

I saw the new Target Multi-Figure Pack for the 12" line...Ezra, Kanan, Inquisitor, and then like 3 totally random dudes - Darth Vader, Shadow Stormtrooper and some random Clone Trooper.

I take it those last 3 don't really have anything to do with the Rebels show and were just arbitrary pack-ins?

I couldn't pull the trigger, but it was sort of tempting. (On sale for $47)

They didn't seem to have a problem getting those ****** rebels Command figures into stores ahead of time.  ::)

Doesn't it seem weird that no one on the show ever talks about any of the Avengers?

Doesn't bother me one way or the other, I would be curious to know what it is. Then again, I'm not going to go out of my way either.

Picked up the 31" Rebels Animated-Style Stormtrooper @ Walmart today. He fits in perfectly with the Inquisitor.  :)

Where's my big-ass Chopper though?!  ;)

Outstanding...particularly jealous of that cherry Droids Saber and Woodland Wagon! Very nice scores.

I would love to see a picture of the Space 1999 stuff too sometime!

I came across another full case of these at Target, but they didn't have the TIE with Inquisitor pack-in figure. I guess that version is coming later. I did go ahead and buy another AT-DP since I had a gift card ready to use up.

Opened it last night, it's a cool little vehicle, albeit a little spindly. I have no trouble getting it to sit upright but harder to mimic any kind of walking motion ala the AT-RT. I was pleasantly surprised to see at least a little detailing in the interior cockpit.

He's got the goatee for it, no doubt.

Still like the idea of Johnny Depp in this role, but Hawke could be good.

Ugh, forgot how much I dislike Rayna.  >:(

I hope they don't make Simmons out to be a bad guy now.

Agent Paul Atreides Cooper Skye's Dad FTW!

Apparently there are 3 figures being found at Walgreen's right now as part of a "flashback" wave containing Daryl, Michonne and the RV zombie. I have seen varying reports whether these are just recards of the previously released versions or actual variants. I would love to have a chance to compare up close, but they haven't made their way here yet. My buddy in FL picked up all 3 a couple of weeks ago though.

Looks like Walgreen's has WD figures for $9.99 a pop right now on sale. I picked up another Zombie Merle and Shane. Wish I could find some of those "flashback" figs at that price but they don't seem to have hit here yet.

Good, their "kid" shows were horrible...those damn ponies and their severe emotional problems!

I liked it. Not a lot for Maggie or Chris to do, but it was pretty funny. Esp the Bob's Burger's slam.

Not sure about the historical precedent but those new Clone Wars episodes have already been prelisted for sale as a set overseas, so it is all but certain they will be released over here as well. I would guess sometime in the near future, this Fall.

I guess I need to check out that Ventress novel now too, although I did not care much for the Darth Maul Son of Dathomir treatment.
